A few months ago, the National Institutes of Health NIH, National Institutes of Health awarded its first research awards by what has been called the next American launch of a spacecraft to the moon: the Brain plan BRAIN Research on brain functioning through the promotion of innovative or BRAIN initiative. Researchers develop innovative to capture dynamic images that make known how cells and multifaceted brain circuits interact with the speed of opinion technologies. Then, we will work to transform how we diagnose a variety of diseases, including depression the stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s.
Among the most promising strategies used by new treatments is personalized medicine, or medical accuracy. Doctors practicing this approach analyze the genetic blueprint of the patient’s tumor and use that in order to choose targeted therapy most likely to be effective for that particular patient. Custom strategies are already being used to treat certain types of cancer -and fully wait for the variety of such strategies follow another area with tremendous potential is hypnotherapy in cancer treatment.
NIH, reacting to the devastating outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, recently began testing two urgent human vaccines designed to protect against Ebola. If these trials are successful, you can expect many more stories concerning them in the coming months. The researchers are also making use of new knowledge about the structure of the virus to improve immunization against certain infectious diseases common, even the flu.
They are conducting human clinical trials for a universal flu vaccine that we hope will be effectual against virtually all strains of influenza virus. What is the big deal? When we have the vaccine, perhaps by the end of this decade, we will be much better protected against lethal strains of flu pandemics occasionally spread through the world. In addition, we not have to be vaccinated next to the flu every year.
