With telemedicine as bridge, no hospital is an island
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When Sarah Cohen's acne drove her to visit a dermatologist, that's what she figured she'd be doing — visiting a dermatologist. But at the hospital on Nantucket Island in Massachusetts, where her family spends summers, Cohen, 19, was perplexed. "I thought I was going to see a regular doctor," she said, but instead she saw "this giant screen." Suddenly, two doctors appeared on the video screen: dermatologists in Boston. A nurse in the room with Cohen held a magnifying camera to her face, and suggested she close her eyes. More

How ultraviolet radiation changes the protective functions of human skin
Medical News Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Dr. Reinhold Dauskardt of Stanford's department of materials science and engineering in California has been studying skin for years. But when he sent his students to look for data on the mechanical properties of skin, they came back empty-handed. A lot was known about skin structure and disease, but few papers actually talked about its mechanical function — its ability to stretch and resist tension without tearing. "That motivated us to get more interested in the skin itself," said Dauskardt. More

Scientists finally uncover the mechanism of action behind AHAs
Plastic Surgery News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Alpha hydroxyl acids are an important ingredient in a lot of cosmetic products including wrinkle-reducing creams and chemical peels, but until recently, scientists really didn't understand how AHAs really worked. Though no one could dispute the fact that these products did encourage the exfoliation and new growth of skin to enhance appearance, the actual chemical and physiological basis for their action was still undiscovered. Recently, however, a team of researchers were able to uncover the truth behind AHAs, opening up the potential to use this important cosmetic tool in medical applications. More

The researchers investigated the genes of marine creatures, such as sea urchins and sea cucumbers, known as echinoderms.

Melanoma: The wolf in sheep's clothing
ScienceDaily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Melanoma is so dangerous because it tends to metastasize early on. New treatment approaches utilize, among other things, the ability of the immune defense to search out and destroy malignant cells. Yet this strategy often is only temporarily effective. A research team under the direction of Bonn University in Germany has discovered why this is the case: In the inflammatory reaction caused by the treatment, the tumor cells temporarily alter their external characteristics, and thus, become invisible to defense cells. This knowledge forms an important foundation for the improvement of combination therapies. More
