New drug 'melts away' fat inside arteries

11th November 2017

A drug being trialled for treating breast cancer and diabetes has been shown to 'melt away' the fat inside arteries that can cause heart attacks and strokes. Researchers from the University of Aberdeen, using pre-clinical mouse models, showed that just a single dose of the drug (Trodusquemine) completely reversed the effects of a disease that causes a host of heart problems.

World’s first full-body PET-CT scanner unveiled at medical equipment fair in Shanghai
(People's Daily Online) 16:24, May 17, 2017

A new PET-CT scanner has been unveiled at the China International Medical Equipment Fair in Shanghai. It is the world’s first full-body dynamic scanner.
The scanner, named uExplorer, is 2 meters long and can scan the entire body. Its creators are now applying for approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and it is expected to hit the market by the end of 2018, according to Shanghai United Imaging Healthcare, one of its designers.
The uExplorer boasts milestone significance in the field of medical imaging, as it is 40 times more sensitive than most scanners that were previously available, and can shorten scan times to less than 30 seconds. Radiation impact has also been decreased to about one-fortieth of average scanners, making it safe for pregnant patients and infants, Thepaper.cn reported. The equipment can even present images in four dimensions.
Li Hongdi, CEO of Shanghai United Imaging Healthcare’s U.S. subsidiary, told reporters that the scanner is “mind-blowing.”

Greek-Israeli researcher on the cusp of MS medical breakthrough

Quote:
Pioneer researcher Professor Dimitrios Karussis, the director of the Multiple Sclerosis Center at Jerusalem's Hadassah's Department of Neurology, is about to make medical history.

Hadassah Hospital, under Professor Karussis' guidance, is creating the groundwork scientific platform for a cure to many formerly incurable neurological diseases.

While the current Hadassah research is centred on Primary Progressive MS, over time the same scientific platform could expand to tackle neurological diseases such as ALS, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's. For now, the research offers dramatic hope for more than 25 million people worldwide dealing with MS...more>

___________________________


The Thessaloniki-born Karussis first came to Israel as a medical exchange student in 1986, and fell in love with the country and the Israeli people. Two weeks after marrying in 1988, he and his wife (also a scientist) left Greece and came to work at Hadassah. They have remained in Israel ever since, are now Israeli citizens, and their son will soon begin three years of service in the Israeli army.

"Some things you feel are like home", Karussis smiles. "You feel the familiarity. It's something unexplainable. Despite the fact that I am not Jewish, I felt that this place was home from the beginning. The head of the department at the time, Professor Abramsky, was like a father to me. We developed relationships with many friends here, and had developments in science and research, [and I stayed to] develop this field of multiple sclerosis and neuroimmunology.

"My philosophical view on this is that the Jewish and Greek way of thinking - on the one hand, the unconditional and "crazy" faith, and on the other hand, the analytical and philosophical way of thinking - represent the two essential and basic cornerstones of Western civilization. These are seemingly opposite but also complementary elements, and their 'marriage' can lead to great achievements. So, for me, this marriage and interaction represents also a great challenge both in science and in life, in general...more>
Bravo to Karussis and team and of course Israel for fostering research into this area.

MS is a horrible condition, let's hope a cure comes soon.

Chinese scientists go in search of the soul with world’s most powerful brain scanner

https://www.scmp.com/news/china/scie...powerful-brain

Billion-yuan device set to ‘revolutionise brain studies’, aid research into Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s
First phase of project approved, but design process expected to take at least five years before construction can start
PUBLISHED : Sunday, 09 December, 2018, 11:03pm
UPDATED : Sunday, 09 December, 2018, 11:02pm

The goal is to build the world’s most powerful magnetic resonance imaging device.

The projected scanner would not only produce a snapshot with details far beyond what existing instruments can provide, but also track various types of chemical agents including sodium, phosphorus and potassium that pass critical signals along neural fibre networks to study consciousness and brain-related diseases such as Parkinson’s.

The billion-yuan device “will revolutionise brain studies”, said a senior scientist working on the project, which is based in the city of Shenzhen in southern China’s Guangdong province.

Human Images From World’s 1st Total-Body Scanner Unveiled

https://www.ucdavis.edu/news/human-i...nner-unveiled/
EXPLORER in Production, Expected to Be in Place in Sacramento in the Spring
By Dorsey Griffith on November 19, 2018 in Science & Technology

The brainchild of UC Davis scientists Simon Cherry and Ramsey Badawi, EXPLORER is a combined positron emission tomography (PET) and X-ray computed tomography (CT) scanner that can image the entire body at the same time. Because the machine captures radiation far more efficiently than other scanners, EXPLORER can produce an image in as little as 1 second and, over time, produce movies that can track specially tagged drugs as they move around the entire body.

The developers expect the technology will have countless applications, from improving diagnostics to tracking disease progression to researching new drug therapies.

The first images from scans of humans using the new device will be shown at the upcoming Radiological Society of North America meeting, which starts Saturday (Nov. 24) in Chicago. The scanner has been developed in partnership with Shanghai-based United Imaging Healthcare (UIH), which built the system based on its latest technology platform and will eventually manufacture the devices for the broader health care market.

United Imaging Healthcare uPMR 790 HD TOF PET/MR Cleared by FDA


Next generation platform redefines clinical routine imaging for providers and patients
https://www.itnonline.com/content/un...mr-cleared-fda

May 8, 2019 – United Imaging Healthcare (UIH), an international leader in advanced medical imaging and radiotherapy equipment, announced its U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of the uPMR 790 HD TOF PET/MR. uPMR 790 redefines clinical routine imaging for PET/MR with the capability to scan a whole body within 20 minutes, balancing patient comfort with high-quality imaging. With the uPMR 790, United Imaging Healthcare demonstrates its commitment to advance precision medicine in the fields of neurology, oncology, and cardiology.

The next generation platform of the uPMR 790 delivers state-of-the-art PET and MR performance that rises above the current technology standards. The HD TOF PET platform is based on digital silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) and lutetium-yttrium oxyorthosilicate (LYSO) crystals, offering a 2.8 mm NEMA PET spatial resolution with time-of-flight (TOF) technology and a large 32cm axial field-of-view. When this technology is combined with compressed sensing for whole body isotropic 3D MR imaging, it results in fast simultaneous whole-body PET and MR scans. This technology redefines PET/MR imaging by offering clinicians high isotropic spatial resolution to visualize small lesions while accelerating acquisition times to maximize patient comfort.

uPMR 790 also offers cutting-edge imaging for research, including theranostics and neuroscience which benefit from an increase in sensitivity, resolution, and coverage. United Imaging Healthcare’s uSync Research platform enables additional opportunities for research in areas such as simultaneous tracking of PET and MRI tracers, real-time cardiac PET/MR, functional neurological PET/MR, and multi-parametric radiometrics.

China-developed clinical all-digital PET / CT equipment is allowed to enter the market

https://news.sina.cn/2019-06-06/deta...4009524.d.html
http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/20190...577230f5c.html
Xinhua | Updated: 2019-06-13 11:00

WUHAN - A China-developed cutting-edge cancer detection device, which integrates positron emission tomography (PET) scans and CT scans, has been approved by national drug regulators and obtained market access earlier this month.

The Xie Qingguo team invented the concept of “all digital PET” in 2004 and formed a complete technical system after more than 10 years. Based on this, the clinical all-digital PET/CT equipment uses all-digital PET technology with completely independent intellectual property rights. With the characteristics of “all digital” and “precise sampling”, it has subverted the traditional PET technology from the source. The route can accurately detect the smallest size lesions and significantly advance the cancer discovery time.

In May 2018, the National Medical Products Administration greenlighted the clinical trial, which tested its safety and effectiveness at two hospitals in Guangdong province.

PET is a nuclear medicine functional imaging technique to observe metabolic processes in the body as an aid to the diagnosis of diseases. According to Xie Qingguo, the lead researcher, the medical device works with two scanners: the CT provides anatomical position information, while the PET provides molecular information.

"Compared with other medical imaging methods, it can help provide more accurate information in early detection and treatment of cancer and brain diseases," Xie said.

It detected metastatic cancer tumors that conventional methods failed to identify in patients who participated in the clinical trial, helping them get early treatment.

Researchers find eNAMPT enzyme that rejuvenates aging mice
http://www.asahi.com/ajw/articles/AJ201906140037.html

The mouse on the right was given the eNAMPT enzyme, and it became more active with a shinier coat than the mouse of the same age on the left. (Provided by Shinichiro Imai, professor at Washington University)

A team of scientists experimenting on an enzyme not only extended the lifespan of mice but also reversed the aging process in terms of physical abilities, according to their research paper.

The good news is that humans also have this enzyme, called extracellular nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (eNAMPT).

The eNAMPT enzyme produces nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), which is known to decline significantly with age in mice and humans. The aging process also causes a deterioration in the functions of internal organs and tissue, which can lead to chronic diseases.

“The function of eNAMPT has the potential to become a method of anti-aging,” said Shinichiro Imai, a professor at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis who is part of the research team.

The team, which also included researchers from the National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology in Osaka, studied the circulating levels of eNAMPT in the blood of mice aged 6 and 18 months.

The levels of eNAMPT decreased in 30 percent of male mice and 70 percent of female mice, according to the team’s research paper published in the online version of U.S. specialist journal Cell Metabolism on June 14.

Old mice with higher levels of eNAMPT in their blood tended to live longer than their more enzyme-depleted counterparts, the study found.

When the team genetically manipulated the mice to maintain the levels of eNAMPT, the old mice behaved like mice one year younger in their physical activities.

That would be the equivalent of humans in their 50s with the physical abilities of those in their 20s, according to the team.

The manipulated mice also maintained high levels in terms of sleeping quality, learning ability, memory skills and retina cellular functions.

The research team then extracted elements containing eNAMPT from young mice aged 4 to 6 months.

After the team supplemented the extracted eNAMPT in female mice that were 26 months old over a three-month period, the mice’s longevity was extended by 16 percent. They also became more active and their coats appeared healthier.
