Health Ministry launches Allied and Health care Professional Database

Aiming to make data repository robust, the Union Health Ministry on Monday launched the Allied and Healthcare Professional Database which will help the government to track the number of professionals and streams of allied and health care professions in the country.

According to the ministry, more than 3, 000 professionals have already registered on the portal during the testing phase.

High Risk Of Diabetes Determined In Blacks

The study found that both blacks and whites face the similar risk of evolving diabetes when all biological factors for the disease are considered over time. The finding flips long-held beliefs that there is an unexplained or genetic reason why blacks have double the rate of diabetes linked to whites by midlife, which is considered early onset. This study was published in the journal JAMA.

Challenges in Receiving Standard-of-care Treatment for Patient with SCLC

A large percentage of U.S. patients with small-cell lung cancer do not receive chemotherapy with thoracic radiation as the standard-of-care, and in turn have lower overall survival, according to research from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The findings, reported in JAMA Oncology, also describe obstacles encountered by patients when receiving cancer treatments, such as their insurance status and socioeconomic factors.

Spectroscopy Has Been Developed from The Silver Nanoparticles

Researchers team from the University of Hyderabad in India has enhanced molecular detection at low concentration levels by arranging nanoparticles on nanowires to develop Raman spectroscopy. Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) uses electromagnetic fields to improve Raman scattering and boost sensitivity in standard dyes such as R6G by more than one billionfold. As medicine and pharmacology investigate nanoscale processes, it has become increasingly important to identify and characterize different molecules
