Primary tumors of patients can release circulating tumor cells (CTCs) to flow inside of their blood. The CTCs have different mechanical properties in comparison with red and white blood cells, and their detection may be employed to study the efficiency of medical treatments against cancer. We present the design of a novel MEMS microgripper with rotatory electrostatic comb-drive actuators for mechanical properties characterization of cells. The microgripper has a compact structural configuration of four polysilicon layers and a simple performance that control the opening and closing displacements of the microgripper tips...

Background: The use of mobile applications in dermatology to support remote diagnosis is gaining acceptance, particularly in rural areas, where dermatology services are commonly managed by healthcare personnel with no specialty training. Moreover, ontologies-sets of concepts that represent knowledge in a given domain-are increasingly being used to support medical diagnosis. A specific case is ONTODerm: an ontology to aid dermatological diagnosis. However, there is little information on the combined use of mobile applications and ontologies as support solutions in dermatology...

BACKGROUND: The insertion of a chest tube should be as quick and accurate as possible to maximize the benefit and minimize possible complications for the patient. Therefore, comprehensive training and assessment before an emergency situation are essential for proficiency in chest tube insertion. Serious games have become more prevalent in surgical training because they enable students to study and train a procedure independently, and errors made have no effect on patients. However, up-to-date evidence regarding the effect of serious games on performance in procedures in emergency medicine remains scarce...

Digital health technologies for people with epilepsy (PWE) include internet-based resources and mobile apps for seizure management. Since non-pharmacological interventions, such as listening to specific Mozart's compositions, cognitive therapy, psychosocial and educational interventions were shown to reduce epileptic seizures, these modalities can be integrated into mobile software and delivered by mobile medical apps as digital therapeutics. Herein, we describe: (1) a survey study among PWE about preferences to use mobile software for seizure control, (2) a rationale for developing digital therapies for epilepsy, (3) creation of proof-of-concept mobile software intended for use as an adjunct digital therapeutic to reduce seizures, and (4) broader applications of digital therapeutics for the treatment of epilepsy and other chronic disorders...

In this tutorial, we want to demonstrate the significant potential of ion mobility spectrometry (IMS), an analytical technique for identification and quantification of gas-phase compounds, in particular combined to other useful analytical tools. Coupled to gas-chromatographic pre-separation (GC-IMS), selectivity can be improved significantly, thus enabling the analysis of complex, humid mixtures. In-line pre-concentration can improve sensitivity down to the ppqV range. Furthermore, the use of non-radioactive ionisation sources in the near future could gain acceptance and will avoid legal restrictions...

Viruses are simple agents exhibiting complex reproductive mechanisms. Decades of research have provided crucial basic insights, antiviral medication and moderately successful gene therapy trials. The most infectious viral particle is, however, not always the most abundant one in a population, questioning the utility of classic ensemble-averaging virology. Indeed, viral replication is often not particularly efficient, prone to errors or containing parallel routes. Here, we review different single-molecule sensitive fluorescence methods that we employ routinely to investigate viruses...

Joint replacements have proved a medical success providing symptomatic relief and return to mobility in many patients with arthritis. However, multiple revision surgeries due to joint failure can result in complex revision scenarios with significant bone tissue loss, in an elderly population, which poses a significant clinical challenge. Computer-aided design-computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD-CAM) prototyped bespoke implants are currently being used as an alternative and innovative approach for joint restoration in salvage cases, while the incorporation of autologous skeletal stem cells to optimize regenerative capacity can enhance implant osseointegration...
