Did you know? Needle-shaped diamonds have rubber-like flexibility and can be moulded into different shapes 20.4.2018 DNA: Top News
In a first, scientists have found that diamond can bend and stretch much like rubber, and snap back to its original form when grown in extremely tiny, needle-like shapes. Diamond is well-known as the strongest of all natural materials, and with that strength comes another tightly linked property: brittleness. The finding by researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US could open the door to a variety of diamond-based devices for applications such as sensing, data storage, actuation, biocompatible in vivo imaging, optoelectronics, and drug delivery. For example, diamond has been explored as a possible biocompatible carrier for delivering drugs into cancer cells. Published in the journal Science, the research shows that the narrow diamond needles, similar in shape to the rubber tips on the end of some toothbrushes but just a few hundred nanometers across, could flex and stretch by as much as nine per cent without breaking, then return to their original configuration.

Painful bone biopsies will soon be replaced with small credit card-sized chips to treat plasma cancer 20.4.2018 DNA: Top News
Scientists have developed a low-cost, reliable blood test for multiple myeloma that uses a small plastic chip about the size of a credit card, which could make painful bone biopsies a relic of the past. The diagnosis and treatment of multiple myeloma, a cancer affecting plasma cells, traditionally forces patients to suffer through a painful bone biopsy, said researchers from University of Kansas in the US. During that procedure, doctors insert a bone-biopsy needle through an incision to get a bone marrow sample - or make a larger incision and remove a section of bone via surgery. The blood test, described in the journal Integrative Biology, uses a small plastic chip about the size of a credit card that can deliver the same diagnostic information as a bone biopsy - but using a simple blood draw instead. "For the last 10 years, we have been developing a blood-based test for a variety of cancer diseases - one of them is multiple myeloma," said Steven Soper, a professor at the University of Kansas. "We will ...

Art therapy may lower pain, anxiety in cancer patients: study 20.4.2018 General News
A brief bedside art therapy may improve mood and decrease the levels of pain and anxiety in patients with cancer, a study claims. In the study published in the European Journal of Cancer Care, a bedside visual art intervention (BVAI) facilitated by art educators improved mood and reduced pain and anxiety in inpatients with haematological cancers. The study was conducted on 19 female and two male patients admitted to the inpatient bone marrow transplant and haematologic services at Mayo Clinic School of Medicine-Rochester in the US. They were invited to participate in a BVAI where the goal of the session was to teach art technique for about 30 minutes. Significant improvements in positive mood and pain scores, as well as decreases in negative mood and anxiety, were observed, the researchers said. Patients perceived BVAI as overall positive (95 per cent) and wished to participate in future art-based interventions (85 per cent), they said. According to the researchers, the findings ...

Can art ease pain and anxiety in cancer patients? 20.4.2018 DNA: Top News
A study to review the impact of art therapy at bedside on patients with haematological cancers found that it improved mood and reduced pain and anxiety. In the study, 21 female and 10 male patients admitted to the inpatient bone marrow transplant and haematologic services at Mayo Clinic-Rochester were invited to participate in a brief bedside visual art intervention (BVAI) where the goal of the session was to teach art technique for approximately 30 minutes. A total of 19 female and 2 male patients participated. Significant improvements in positive mood and pain scores, as well as decreases in negative mood and anxiety, were observed. Patients perceived BVAI as overall positive (95%) and wished to participate in future art-based interventions (85%). The findings indicate that experiences provided by artists within the community may be an adjunct to conventional treatments in patients with cancer-related mood symptoms and pain. The study has been published in the journal European Journal of Cancer ...
