Oral Delivery Method in Controlling Blood Sugar Level in Diabetics

Image
Oral delivery method of Insulin can change the whole view of controlling the diabetes and keep updating about one’s blood sugar level. It has promise to give a good quality of life up to 40million people with type 1 diabetes. It also overcomes the side effects faced by the patients when they are unable to inject with insulin. Insulin is just injected to the subcutaneous layer of skin which is usually used therapy to check the blood sugar level, but many fail due to pain, phobia of needles etc. As insulin is a protein, when it enters orally it reacts with the stomach's acidic environment and it is partially absorbed out of the intestine. This approach is adopted by inserting insulin in an ionic liquid which is composed of choline and geranic acid which is later filled inside a capsule with an acid-resistant enteric coating. The orally available insulin thus is biocompatible, easy to produce and has longer shelf life than the market available injectable insulin. The insulin must pass…

Red Meat Allergy Causes Heart Disease

Image
There is a linked sensitivity to an allergen called galactose-α-1,3-galactose, or alpha-Gal, a type of complex sugar which causes allergy in the red meat and builds up plaque in the arteries of the heart. High saturated fat present in red meat is known to cause heart disease in humans. The population is at a risk of this food allergen.  The first such kind of allergy was found among the small population in Virginia. These findings needs further clinical studies among large group of populations which differ from the geographical locations and a lot of other laboratory techniques. Large percent of human population develops blood antibodies to this allergen which shows less symptoms around 20 percent among the population. The Lone Star tick was found in red meat, when it bites it sensitizes the allergen and produce allergy. The allergy increases based on the area  where the ticks were found in large numbers for example Southeastern United States, but also found in some other areas like Lo…

DRUG EFFECTING THE DRUG RESISTANCE PATHOGENS

Image
A molecule called Lip oxazolidinone A is a synthetic compound could be used as a tool for the study of infectious agents, especially gram positives might find its application in the future drug creations. It is isolated from bacteria found in the marine sediments. Hence it is obtained from natural product. These bacteria produces the secondary metabolites, which is used for purposes like defense. During the initial isolation of lip oxazolidinone A was found to be effective against Gram-positive bacteria like MRSA. These original findings were confirmed and understood to correlate the molecular structure to its function, to know the portions of it was responsible for its anti-microbial actions and to improve that structure. Lip oxazolidinone A was synthesized using the novel chemical tools in the lab. It helped to confirm the portion of the structure responsible for an antibiotic reaction which was JJM35. It was tested on both the resistant and non-resistant strains of bacteria. It wa…

Prominent drugs with less side effects

Image
Chemical compounds are made up of molecules. Chiral molecules are one of the most important molecules in biology. Meaning of Chiral in Greek represents the hand which describes that molecules that almost exactly looks alike and contain the same number of atoms but are mirror images of one another which means some are "left-handed" and others are "right-handed." This difference is crucial and yields different biological effects. The differences of the Chiral was made clear by drug thalidomide. It was later marketed to pregnant women in the late 1950’s and 1960’s to get relief from morning sickness. However, thalidomide is a chiral drug, the “right” chiral molecule of it causes relief from morning sickness and its “left” chiral molecule caused deformities in babies. Since the left chiral molecule was not separated from the right chiral molecule in thalidomide by the drug company, it resulted in huge effect to the babies inside the womb. The separation of chiral molec…

3 Emerging Technologies that can Revolutionize Pharmaceutical World

Image
Pharmaceutical Industries always endeavor to bring separated and astounding pharmaceuticals, antibodies and customer medicinal services items to however many individuals as could be expected under the circumstances. 



Here we talk about three rising advances, which the pharmaceutical business has begun receiving, yet gradually. 
Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)


Web of Medical Things unites therapeutic gadgets and applications and innovation that obtain fundamental information continuously. Chronic diseases, which require frequent monitoring, which require visit observing, can be followed adequately so patients get convenient and appropriate treatment.  Wearable gadgets like Apple Watch, Fitbit and Samsung S Health enable clients to accomplish their wellness and wellbeing targets.It could well be the eventual fate of medicinal services as pharma and therapeutic gadget organizations hope to improve and stay aware of innovation to enable patients and doctors to better screen and track illnes…

'Dramatic Medical Advances' can be achieved by a NEWLY FOUND ORGAN

Image
Researchers have found another organ

Recently discovered organ may prompt 'sensational restorative advances' Interstitium, new anatomic structure may assume a key part in the working of every significant tissue and organs, and in addition in growth metastasis and fiery ailments. Restorative experts have long thought about the interstitium, a system of tissue for the most part known to live inside the lungs, and about the interstitial space, which stores liquid.
Be that as it may, now, out of the blue, Dr. Neil Theise, a teacher in the Department of Pathology at New York University's School of Medicine in New York City — characterizes the interstitium as a genuine organ, and it is one of the biggest in the human body. (source google)

The interstitial space is the essential wellspring of lymph and is a noteworthy liquid compartment in the body. While the life structures and arrangement of the interstitial space between cells is progressively comprehended, the presence, area, a…

Nanomedicine & Women’s Health

Image
Nanomedicine have the potential to revolutionize the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of a range of conditions and diseases affecting women’s health

Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology in the field of medicine with a view to enhancing the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. Nanotechnology is already involved in a range of biomedical applications including drug and vaccine delivery, diagnostic imaging, nanosensor diagnostics, nano-enabled therapies, and tissue engineering. A growing recognition of the specific health care requirements of women has resulted in the proposed organizational changes in the provision of health care, focusing predominantly on a life course approach to women’s health care. As our understanding of the benefits of nanomaterial-based agents and diagnostics continues to grow in terms of selectivity, sensitivity, affinity, and detection limits, there is a widespread anticipation that nanotechnology will play an increasing role in women’s h…
