Driving can help diagnose Alzheimer’s | Digital Trends Spanish

According to research conducted by the University of Toronto, changes in the way you drive a vehicle over time could help diagnose Alzheimer's. Although the way of driving changes in all people over the years, in some there appear subtle differences in the way of controlling a vehicle which, according to scientists, would be related to the early stages of this disease. In the United States, a group of people over the age of 65 agreed to have their driving monitored for a year. The researchers found that it was possible to detect the onset of the disease without resorting to invasive and expensive medical procedures. Among the 139 people who were part of the study, medical tests had shown that half already had Alzheimer's disease at a very early or preclinical stage. The other half did...

This could be the first plague victim in history | Digital Trends Spanish

According to a new study, the skull of a hunter-gatherer who lived in Europe more than 5,000 years ago contains the oldest known traces of the bacteria responsible for causing the plague. According to the researchers, this finding could provide some important clues about the origins and evolution of this disease that has been responsible for some of the worst epidemics in history. The international team of scientists has discovered the oldest variant of the Yersinia pestis in the skeletal remains of a hunter buried 5,000 years ago in present-day Latvia, at the Rinnukalns site. Although it is a less infectious and lethal mutation than that of the Middle Ages, researchers think that it caused the death of man due to the amount of bacteria that the analyzes of his DNA have shown. The corps...

When does “normal life” return according to the founder of BioNTech? | Digital Trends Spanish

Pfizer's announcement that its coronavirus vaccine would have been more than 90 percent effective gave us all some hope regarding an eventual (albeit distant) end to the health crisis. Of course, we all have to be aware that the period that follows the application of the vaccine will not be easy, nor will it be perfect. In fact, it will be as hard and difficult as the one we have experienced during this 2020. So at least Ugur Sahin, founder of BioNTech, a German company associated with Pfizer in the development of the vaccine against COVID-19, has announced. In conversation with Sky News, the scientist pointed out that people could start getting vaccinated in the United Kingdom from next month. Of course, this would depend on whether the regulator in that territory approves the dr...

A new cocktail of drugs to treat aggressive cancers | Digital Trends Spanish

A team of researchers from the Harvard Wyss Institute claims to have developed a method to treat triple negative breast cancer. Professionals believe that by mixing immunotherapy with chemotherapy they may have developed a method for the specific treatment of aggressive cancers. Chemotherapy is essentially a poison that is injected into the body and kills cancer cells. However, it also causes enormous collateral damage to the surrounding tissue. Immunotherapy, for its part, tries to squeeze the immune response that exists in the patient so that it targets cancer cells. However, the more aggressive cancers trigger immunosuppressive responses in the area near the tumors, making both treatments less effective. For the same reason, the researchers took the best of both approaches, mix...

They connect a person to a computer through the veins | Digital Trends Spanish

A group of Australian scientists has successfully tested a neurocomputer interface that would allow humans to control various electronic devices, inserting electrodes through veins. This innovative finding would have important applications in the therapies of patients suffering from severe paralysis, whether due to disorders of the brain, spinal cord or muscle. To achieve this brain-computer interface, the researchers placed electrodes through a small expandable tube called a Stentrode, similar to the one doctors use to restore normal flow through veins and arteries. Initial tests The scientists tested the electrodes on two patients who suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), resulting in paralysis of their limbs. The device along with the eye tracker were connected to ...

Evidence shows disease spread 4 thousand years ago | Digital Trends Spanish

The global heat and infectious diseases appear as the main threats that humanity must face in these times. We have probably realized that in the worst way, when the increase in the global temperature of the planet has reached historical highs, and the COVID-19 pandemic has already left hundreds of thousands of fatalities. But infectious diseases do not seem to be typical of these times. Everything indicates that humanity has been fighting against them for thousands of years. This at least has been shown by important bioarchaeological research carried out by a team from the University of Otago, in New Zealand, which has provided evidence of how infectious diseases may have spread 4,000 years ago. The research was published in Biorcheology International It was led by Dr. Melandri Vl...

They diagnose mental illnesses using algorithms | Digital Trends Spanish

Researchers at the University of Tokyo, in Japan, created a technique that allows the clear diagnosis of a mental illness, something that currently does not occur in psychiatric science. The scientists used machine learning processes, computer algorithms and brain scan images, reported Eurekalert. Unlike other branches of modern medicine, psychiatry does not use impartial physical tests, blood tests, or procedures to definitively diagnose mental illness or to distinguish between different disorders. “Psychiatrists, myself included, often discuss symptoms and behaviors with patients. We draw medical conclusions using subjective second-hand information. Frankly, we needed objective data, ”explained Dr. Shinsuke Koike, associate professor at the University of Tokyo and lead author o...
