Nano-Technology and Medicine

Nano-Materials have proven many times that they have potential in Bio-Medicine applications. An example of some materials being used right now are nano-fibers, nano-particles and nano-spheres for as many things from regenerating nerve or muscle cells to preventing diseases directly or indirectly by delivering drugs into target areas.

In areas of regeneration, nano-materials have been constructed into scaffolds which allow the body to regenerate cells faster. Nano-fiber scaffolds have been used to regenerate nerve cells called Oligodendrocytes which help Myelinate or insulate and protect nerve axons. Other similar structures have been used to help with healing of skin wounds. These technologies can help cure many diseases involving neurons such as Parkinson’s or Multiple Sclerosis for example without any collateral damage to the body.

Other applications include using nano-particles for killing off bacteria. Particles of silver, zinc, gold and copper have been shown to kill bacteria on contact or prevent their replication and incorporating them into fabrics in hospitals can prevent many infections. Gold, specifically, can be used to form what are called nano-bubbles when heated with lasers and can either punch holes in diseased cells - allowing drugs to get through - or bursting the bubble causing the cell to die.

Nano-technology can also prevent disease or infections indirectly by acting as vehicles for drug transportation in the body. Nano-particles can be designed to take the shape of spheres which can hold many types of drugs from anti-cancer drugs to antigens for preventing autoimmune diseases. These ‘vehicles’ can be programmed - using ligands - to target specific cells like cancer cells for example allowing for much more precise treatments. Cancer types ranging from Bladder, Pediatric and Colorectal cancer (among others) have been treated using these techniques.

This field is steadily rising and I can not wait to see what its future holds.

Petitioning the White House to stop transplant discrimination against autistic people

We have until December 14 to get 25,000 signatures on it. You need to live in the USA, and you should seriously sign, signal boost, tumblr bomb, anything you can. Lives are on the line- lives of people like me.

Reminder.

Okay, I am judging you for the fact that this still needs 23,000 out of 25,000 signatures, Tumblr. What the fuck.

Um, do people not understand that this so so people with autism can get life-saving organ transplants, instead of given a death sentence on the grounds that our lives are inherently worthless?

Do you think this doesn’t happen to young adults?

23-Year-Old Autistic Man Denied Heart Transplant at UPenn Hospital

Do you think this doesn’t happen to children with various developmental disorders?

3-Year-Old Amelia Rivera Denied Kidney Transplant

Do you think this doesn’t happen to adults with Down’s Syndrome?

32-Year-Old Sandra Jensen Denied Heart Transplant

UNTIL THE 1990’s, “mental retardation”, meaning any sort of cognitive impairment, was considered “contraindication” for receiving a livesaving organ transplant(link opens as PDF)

“Contraindicated.” That quite literally means that they considered saving a cognitively impaired person’s life HARMFUL.

oh goodness why did i not see this on my dash?

boost!

On the fucked-up-ness of transplants, may I remind everyone that Dick fucking Cheney got a heart transplant when he is passed the age for which he was eligible to receive one.

Oh, and I can just sit here in CHF for another 10 years while UPENN tries to invent some surgery to fix me, but I don’t qualify for a transplant because my heart is too structurally damaged. Uhm, I believe that is the mother fucking point of doing transplants in the first place. By the time some people are considered “sick enough” for transplantation, they have other issues like kidney & lung failure which prevents them from being eligible.

There’s a whole long list of criteria & they basically keep organs for people who will have the “best quality of life”, which is the opinion of some old ass white doctors & highly subjective. If should be for life-saving reasons & for people whose quality of life would be most improved, like me.

So meanwhile, Dick Cheney could have remained on the device he had implanted & been kept alive & fairly healthy, while I choke on the mother fucking fluids building up in my lungs. I’m one of thousands upon thousands of people who should have received a transplant or who should be eligible for one, but they tend to go to mostly wealthier & healthier people. 

The whole system puts the value of one person’s life over another & it’s super fucked up. And, that’s not even getting into the illegal organ trade & organ harvesting that goes on, as well as insurance coverage & the costs of transplantation, which in & of itself is discriminatory.

Bone types

Top: Metacarpals (long bones) and carpals (short bones)
Second row, left: Left ulna (long bone)
Second row, right: Scapula and sternum (flat bones)
Third row, left: Sagittal section of the knee joint, including the patella (sesamoid bone)
Third row, right: Thoracic vertebrae (irregular bones)
Bottom: Complete Skeleton

Bones are classified into five groups, organized by shape.

Long bones are longer than they are wide, and are subjected to most of the load-bearing responsibilities in everyday life. These include the humerus, radius, and ulna (arms); fibula, femur, and tibia (legs), as well as the phalanges (fingers and toes), metacarpals (hands) and metatarsals (feet).

They grow from the epiphysis (growth plate) at either end of the bone, and failure of these bones to grow causes the majority of dwarfism cases.

Short bones are as wide as they are long, and provide support, but do not bear heavy loads or move much. These include the tarsals (feet) and carpals (hands/wrists).

Flat bones are broad bones that provide protection to organs, and large areas for muscle attachment. These include the bones in the skull, the ilium, scapula, sternum, and ribs. The flat bones consist of two layers of compact bone, surrounding a layer of cancellous bone, where the majority of red bone marrow exists. In adults, most red blood cells are produced in the flat bones.

Sesamoid bones are bones within tendons, which pass over a joint. The most familiar sesamoid bone is the patella, or knee-bone. These bones provide protection to delicate joints.

Irregular bones don’t fit into any of the above categories. The mandible and vertebrae are irregular bones.

WELL they can’t deny you emergency care…but they can take their sweet time getting to you

Oh, but they actually can. If they are privately owned & not a trauma center, they can, legally, refuse you treatment. 

I had a really high fever when I was about 3 years old and went into shock. My parents rushed me to three different hospitals - two turned us away because they didn’t accept out insurance. I could’ve suffered terrible brain damage or died. I don’t think anyone should be turned away when it’s an emergency, but hey, what do I know.

Unless you’re literally bleeding to death in front of them, they don’t legally have to treat you. It’s so messed up. :(

Mental Disorder or Neurodiversity? 

One of the most famous stories of H. G. Wells, “The Country of the Blind” (1904), depicts a society, enclosed in an isolated valley amid forbidding mountains, in which a strange and persistent epidemic has rendered its members blind from birth. Their whole culture is reshaped around this difference: their notion of beauty depends on the feel rather than the look of a face; no windows adorn their houses; they work at night, when it is cool, and sleep during the day, when it is hot. A mountain climber named Nunez stumbles upon this community and hopes that he will rule over it: “In the Country of the Blind the One-Eyed Man is King,” he repeats to himself. Yet he comes to find that his ability to see is not an asset but a burden. The houses are pitch-black inside, and he loses fights to local warriors who possess extraordinary senses of touch and hearing. The blind live with no knowledge of the sense of sight, and no need for it. They consider Nunez’s eyes to be diseased, and mock his love for a beautiful woman whose face feels unattractive to them. When he finally fails to defeat them, exhausted and beaten, he gives himself up. They ask him if he still thinks he can see: “No,” he replies, “That was folly. The word means nothing — less than nothing!” They enslave him because of his apparently subhuman disability. But when they propose to remove his eyes to make him “normal,” he realizes the beauty of the mountains, the snow, the trees, the lines in the rocks, and the crispness of the sky — and he climbs a mountain, attempting to escape.

Wells’s eerie and unsettling story addresses how we understand differences that run deep into the mind and the brain. What one man thinks of as his heightened ability, another thinks of as a disability. This insight about the differences between ways of viewing the world runs back to the ancients: in Plato’s Phaedrus, Socrates discusses how insane people experience life, telling Phaedrus that madness is not “simply an evil.” Instead, “there is also a madness which is a divine gift, and the source of the chiefest blessings granted to men.” The insane, Socrates suggests, are granted a unique experience of the world, or perhaps even special access to its truths — seeing it in a prophetic or artistic way.

Today, some psychologists, journalists, and advocates explore and celebrate mental differences under the rubric of neurodiversity. The term encompasses those with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), autism, schizophrenia, depression, dyslexia, and other disorders affecting the mind and brain. People living with these conditions have written books, founded websites, and started groups to explain and praise the personal worlds of those with different neurological “wiring.” The proponents of neurodiversity argue that there are positive aspects to having brains that function differently; many, therefore, prefer that we see these differences simply as differences rather than disorders. Why, they ask, should what makes them them need to be classified as a disability?

But other public figures, including many parents of affected children, focus on the difficulties and suffering brought on by these conditions. They warn of the dangers of normalizing mental disorders, potentially creating reluctance among parents to provide treatments to children — treatments that researchers are always seeking to improve. The National Institute of Mental Health, for example, has been doing extensive research on the physical and genetic causes of various mental conditions, with the aim of controlling or eliminating them.

Disagreements, then, abound. What does it mean to see and experience the world in a different way? What does it mean to be a “normal” human being? What does it mean to be abnormal, disordered, or sick? And what exactly would a cure for these disorders look like?
