Predicting the most effective treatment for IBD

Dear Sir or Madam,

The earlier treatment is started, the better. But treatment does not always work equally well for all patients despite having the same disease. In the case of inflammatory bowel disease, the results of therapy can differ from person to person as well. A research project led by a young physician from Kiel has therefore set itself the goal of being able to predict in the future which biologics therapy will deliver the best possible results for each individual. You can find out how this is to be achieved in our interview.

Enjoy reading!

AI performs as well as medical specialists in analyzing lung disease

Imaging and diagnostics / medical equipment and devices

A Nagoya University research group has developed an AI algorithm that accurately and quickly diagnoses idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a lung disease. The algorithm makes its diagnosis based only on information from non-invasive examinations, including lung images and medical information collected during daily medical care.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of disorders that cause chronic inflammation in the intestine. Early effective treatment can help manage this condition and improve the quality of life of patients. A research project aims to identify molecular markers to better assess the chances of success of certain biological therapies and subsequently determine the best individualized treatment plan.

Bacterial membrane transporter helps pathogens to hide from immune system

Laboratory equipment and diagnostic tests

The transport of substances across the membrane into the cell is linked to specific membrane transport proteins. Researchers at the University Hospital Bonn (UKB) and the University of Bonn, in collaboration with an international team, have now succeeded in elucidating the molecular structure of a completely new class of such membrane transporters.

New FFP protective masks from Germany

Laboratory equipment and diagnostic tests

Face masks have been part of our daily lives since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic: as a result, the demand for FFP2 masks has increased considerably. The main beneficiaries of this demand have been manufacturers in the Far East who have a monopoly on mask production on the world market, and who tend to win public tenders due to their low labour costs.

High-tech vest monitors lung function

IT systems and IT solutions

Patients with severe respiratory or lung diseases require intensive treatment and their lung function needs to be monitored on a continuous basis. As part of the Pneumo.Vest project, Fraunhofer researchers have developed a technology whereby noises in the lungs are recorded using a textile vest with integrated acoustic sensors.
