Advances in the field of technology and medicine and breakthrough developments are being made every day. Diagnoses are expected to become more accurate than ever. Below are some of the examples of such medical breakthrough that can change the lives of millions.
1. Human Organs created by stem cell
Transplant of body organs are becoming difficult with the passing time, while some of them are extremely difficult to obtain causing more deaths. Today, there is technology that can create organs and body parts from the patient’s stem cells, increasing the chances of survival and decreasing the chances of rejection. Kidneys are already being prepared with the help of stem cells. This is one of the greatest aspects of the future of regenerative medicine.
2. Fast DNA diagnoses for Newborn
Newborns that are admitted to neonatal intensive care units suffer from genetic abnormalities inherited from their parents. DNA based testing if delivered swiftly can help the doctors interpret the newborn genome and the disease that they are liable to suffer. Time is imperative for such newborns, while DNA testing takes a lot of time. The precarious situation of the newborns can be dealt with in an efficient manner if the results of DNA testing are given to the doctors as soon as possible. Initially it took a lot of time in interpreting these results, but thanks to the latest technology results can be delivered in only 50 hours.
3. Reversing Autism
According to Autismspeaks.org, Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.
Early Start Denver Model claims to have helped children suffering from autism can actually reverse the condition. It can actually work in the direction of normalizing the brain function. It already has shown 2 kids showing positive effects. This development has a significant chance of success.
