COPD: 360° care

Dear Sir or Madam,

Did you know that around 200 million people worldwide are affected by COPD? Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is one of the most common causes of death, as it cannot yet be cured. Early diagnosis, comprehensive therapy and conscious self-management can make it easier for patients to deal with their disease and improve their quality of life. You can read in our current Topic of the Month, what all-round care in the case of COPD can look like.

I wish you a relaxed week,

Katja Laska

Could blockchain ensure integrity of clinical trial data?

UC San Francisco researchers have created a proof-of-concept method for ensuring the integrity of clinical trials data with blockchain. The system creates an immutable audit trail that makes it easy to spot any tampering with results - such as making the treatment look more effective or diminishing side effects.

Endoprostheses - Ultrasound to detect loosening?

Video

Image: Preview image of the video
Many patients suffering from arthrosis or other kinds of damage in the hip joint need an endoprosthesis at some point. However, this prosthesis can loosen again after some time, so that it must be replaced. In order to delay this replacement surgery for as long as possible, the TH Mittelhessen University of Applied Sciences develops a new diagnostic method.
