'Very active' flu season continues as a second wave could be coming

The 2019-20 flu season continues to be more active than normal, with Influenza B the leading type of virus among patients nationwide. But patient visits were down compared to the previous week in much of the country, indicating the early Influenza B wave may reach a peak and start declining in the coming weeks, according to researchers at the Biocomplexity Institute at the University of Virginia who work in a research partnership with AccuWeather.

However, those researchers expect that eventually an Influenza A wave will arrive and cause considerable infections later in the season.

The percentage of visits for influenza-like illnesses (ILI) dropped over the last week, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Nationwide, 3.2 percent of patient visits reported through the U.S. Outpatient Influenza-like Illness Surveillance Network (ILINet) were due to influenz

Getinge Japan celebrates the delivery of more than 200 hybrid operating rooms

The interest in Hybrid Operating Rooms (Hybrid ORs), a place where both diagnostics and therapies takes place, has increased in Japan during the last decades. Today, Getinge has delivered more than 1,350 solutions worldwide and more than 200 in Japan alone.

This year Getinge celebrates 20 years of pioneering the Hybrid OR – a place that goes beyond medical boundaries by combining an OR with one or more imaging systems such as angiography, computed tomography scanners (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging scanners (MRI). Combining more than one imaging system with an OR, turns the Hybrid OR into a cutting-edge Multi-modality Hybrid Suite.

“Getinge has provided hospitals with Hybrid ORs since back in 1999 and there is an increasing interest worldwide. Today, we are very happy to announce that we have exceeded 200 Hybrid OR deliveries in Japan alone,” says Hideaki Yamashita, President Geting

Hydrogels control inflammation to help healing

Hydrogels for healing, synthesized from the molecules up by Rice University bioengineers, are a few steps closer to the clinic.

Rice researchers and collaborators at Texas Heart Institute (THI) have established a baseline set of injectable hydrogels that promise to help heal wounds, deliver drugs and treat cancer. Critically, they’ve analyzed how the chemically distinct hydrogels provoke the body’s inflammatory response — or not.

Hydrogels developed at Rice are designed to be injectable and create a mimic of cellular scaffolds in a desired location. They serve as placeholders while the body naturally feeds new blood vessels and cells into the scaffold, which degrades over time to leave natural tissue in its place. Hydrogels can also carry chemical or biological prompts that determine the scaffold’s structure or affinity to the surrounding tissue.

The study led by chemist and bioengine
