Printing Objects That Can Incorporate Living Organisms

Printing Objects That Can Incorporate Living Organisms

A method for printing 3D objects that can control living organisms in predictable ways has been developed. The technique may lead to 3D printing of biomedical tools, such as customized braces, that incorporate living cells to produce therapeutic compunds such as painkillers or topical treatments, the researchers say.

First Long Term Vagus Nerve Stimulation Implant in Mice

First Long Term Vagus Nerve Stimulation Implant in Mice

Previous preclinical VNS studies have been limited to short-term stimulation -- a timeframe of minutes to hours -- due to the surgical and technological challenges of implanting a stimulator small enough to fit a mouse nerve. In order to conduct mouse studies lasting weeks or even months, Feinstein Institutes researchers developed new techniques to deliver long-term electrical stimulation in mice.

3D Printed Microscaffold Cochlear Implant

3D Printed Microscaffold Cochlear Implant

Scientists developed a 3D-microscaffold cochlear implant for steroid elution. For the first time, scientists combined a highly precise, porous 3D printed steroid reservoir with a 2D MEMS-based electrode array to fabricate a novel cochlear implant. This implant is designed to reduce the damage of residual hearing against electrode insertion trauma.

Ingestible Medical Devices can be Broken Down with Light

A variety of medical devices can be inserted into the gastrointestinal tract to treat, diagnose, or monitor GI disorders. Many of these have to be removed by endoscopic surgery once their job is done. However, engineers have now come up with a way to trigger such devices to break down inside the body when they are exposed to light from an ingestible LED.

Add-On Wearable Monitors Sweat

Add-On Wearable Monitors Sweat

Sweat, which contains a wide range of biochemical markers, can tell us a lot about our health. Variations in sweat pH can tell us whether our body is dehydrated and can aid the diagnosis of skin conditions such as dermatitis, acne and other skin infections. In diabetic patients, sweat pH may serve as a good indicator of other life-threatening conditions.

The First Living Robots

The First Living Robots

A book is made of wood. But it is not a tree. The dead cells have been repurposed to serve another need. Now a team of scientists has repurposed living cells—scraped from frog embryos—and assembled them into entirely new life-forms. These millimeter-wide "xenobots" can move toward a target, perhaps pick up a payload (like a medicine that needs to be carried to a specific place inside a patient)—and heal themselves after being cut.

Prostrate Cancer Can Now be Diagnosed Better Using AI

Researchers have developed a 'deep learning' system that is better than most pathologists at determining the aggressiveness of prostate cancer. The AI system, which uses tissue samples to arrive at its diagnosis, taught itself to identify prostate cancer based on data from over 1200 patients.

Diagnosing Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing CVD is the first step in patients' road to recovery. It is imperative to detect the disease early in order to administer treatment while it is still treatable. In addition, preventing the disease altogether is becoming more important in healthcare. The main approaches for detecting CVD are currently in vitro diagnostics (IVD) at point-of-care (POC) and the use artificial intelligence (AI) in cardiovascular imaging.
