Scientists have developed a coating to treat skin cancer.
According to the social reporter of Tasnim news agency; Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancer, and various methods have been tried to treat it, but the treatment of this cancer with bandaging and covering methods has never been tried.
Recently, the results of a study published in the journal "Cancer Reports" show that it is possible to eliminate it by using a bandage!
In this method, Indian researchers use the magnetic effects of this type of bandage, the heat generated by it to kill cancer cells; This method has been successful in its animal phase so far.
The basic treatment of this method is the use of magnetic nanoparticles that help the heat therapy technique; In this method, magnetic nanoparticles are inserted into the area where the tumor is located, and the cancer cell is killed when these particles are inoculated.
The method used delivers the magnetic nanoparticles to the cancerous area instead of injecting them into the skin with bandages; This method falls into the category of non-invasive treatments.
These nanoparticles are made of iron oxide and a biodegradable polymer that reaches the temperature required to kill cancer cells by being placed in a coating band with the help of a magnetic field.
According to Mehr News Agency, Mohammad Qureshi, stating that orthopedic surgeries are divided into two categories, emergency and non-emergency, said: The first category of emergency operations are such as fractures that can not be postponed.
The head of Akhtar Hospital emphasized on not delaying such necessary operations during the corona outbreak, saying: "For example, if an elderly person has a pelvic fracture due to a landslide, he must go to medical centers and because of the coronary outbreak, he should not Refuse to see a doctor.
"Recently, patients have been referred to medical centers who have had a fracture for weeks but have postponed their surgery for fear of coronary heart disease," he said. The right time to visit us is much more likely to heal the affected area.
The faculty member of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences added: "People should know that, for example, if they have an elderly person in the family who has difficulty walking due to a fall, he may have a fracture and they must see a doctor."
He explained about non-emergency orthopedic surgeries: In general, non-fracture orthopedic surgeries can be considered non-emergency. Of course, sometimes there are emergency surgeries in non-fracture cases, but these cases are exceptions.
Qureshi continued: "Contrary to what has been said about postponing emergency operations, unfortunately some people think that because they are at home, the corona outbreak is a good opportunity to perform non-emergency surgeries such as treating knee, shoulder or back pain and Tingling in the hands and feet.
The faculty member of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, added: "People should postpone performing these unnecessary operations until the situation has returned to normal and people do not need to be pursuing chronic musculoskeletal pain now."
He said: "It can even be said that not only non-emergency orthopedic procedures should be postponed, but also referral to medical centers during coronary heart disease is not recommended."
"People who suffer from chronic musculoskeletal pain, due to the prevalence of coronary heart disease, can reduce the pain by taking common painkillers and not perform non-emergency procedures," the orthopedic specialist noted.
In the end, Qureshi emphasized: Of course, with the arrangements that we have seen for creating an isolated ward in Akhtar Hospital as an orthopedic center of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, it is also possible to perform surgery for coronary patients who have suffered fractures.
