Questions related to Medicine
- In the realm of medical education, does a medical educator exclusively operate within the domain of Medical Education, or is their role flexible enough to prioritize representing a specific discipline of basic/clinical sciences or medicine – and then catering to its needs as an educator.
- What are the international guidelines and practices?
Is the definition of a biomaterial a material designed to direct the course of any therapeutic or diagnostic procedure through its interaction with living tissue?
If so, can polymers used in medicine be called biomaterials?
I don't think so, since polymers are not designed to be therapeutic or diagnostic materials.
However, a paper I read called polymers biomaterials and discussed their antifouling properties.
I would like to know why it is okay to call polymers used in medicine biomaterials.
Thank you in advance.
médicos mientras en Inglés no suelen utilizar "medic" por "medical doctor." Ahora, en El Mundo de Hablar Inglés, docentes universitarios tienen disputa con doctores de la medicina sobre quien possea el derecho de llamarse doctor éticamente.
Psychology, according to Wundt, drew on definitions of human nature as distinct from prior religious interpretation, that human beings are neither bad nor good. Although thereby not conditioned or inhabited by supernatural forces they are driven by the forces within and of their environments.
Psychiatry believes mental illness is determined or pre-determined, and that even when environment plays a part people react to the environment in pre-determined ways. People can and do claim that psychiatry is a science because it can be measured. I believe this is suspect!
The role played by drugs in psychiatry is seen by some as evidence of its scientific basis, as drugs belong to science and fit the claims of medicine for almost three hundred years. Drugs will suppress so the good they do, combined with their addictive nature, is suspect. Or do you consider otherwise? Again the effects of drugs are subject to measuring, or are they? Psychiatry predetermines human nature but is the categorisation of human beings reliable?

A study by Peeters et al. (2017) suggests that sugar traps cancer in a 'vicious cycle' which make it more aggressive and harder to treat (1). On the question-and-answer site Quora, Ray Schilling, MD, concludes: "there is a connection between the consumption of sugar and starchy foods and various cancers in man. Animal experiments are useful in suggesting these connections, but many clinical trials including the Women’s Health Initiative have shown that these findings are also true in humans. It is insulin resistance due to sugar and starch overconsumption that is causing cancer" (2).

Hello RG Community,
I recently received an email from "Oncology Editorial Committee" of "Medical Research Archives".
Dear Dr. Muhammad Haseeb,
I wanted to get in touch with you about your liver cancer work. I enjoyed your article "[Redacted]" and was wondering what further research you have done on this topic. This year I am helping to create a special theme issue titled New Perspectives on Liver Cancer which will be published in the official journal of the European Society of Medicine. Your work could be a valuable addition to the theme issue and I hope you would be willing to discuss the possibility of preparing an article.
Is this something you might consider? Best Regards,
Section editor Oncology Editorial Committee Medical Research Archives European Society of Medicine ISSN: 2375-1924 NLM (PubMed) ID: 101668511
It seems a predatory journal and some other researchers have found the same.

Diabetes is most prevalent all over the world especially type-II diabetes. India is called the 'Diabetic Capital' as this metabolic disorder is most prevalent in our country Therefore, is there anything like signature medicine or advanced genetic engineering tool for type-II diabetes to have sigh of relief for the patients ?
As physicians practicing medicine, what do you see most necessary in patient medical care that requires system unification on a single platform?
- creating a directory of drugs available in the country and the location they're provided by pharmacies?
- Health literacy of patients--> Overseen by ministry authorities such as elected professors, etc.
A very Emergency case, The Mother of my best friend, the results of her MRI said that she had nodular peritoneal thickening that suggested peritoneal serosal carcinoma, and ovarian cancer, also she has ascites, what is the source of ascites in case of high CA-125? We are suggesting a surgery to remove the ovarian, peritoneal biopsy and taking different samples to histology laboratory for culture and characterization, Any Informations would be helpful and well Appreciated, Many Thanks
What is the probability that the first step in moving toward a more inclusive and positive sum game of academia going to be through medical doctor training? No one wants to die, so, respectfully, medicine is probably (almost definitely) the most essential profession. Thus, how do we deal with shortages of medical doctors?
My full opinion:
In the 21st century, artificial intelligence is very prevalent. Despite the fact that there is ample evidence that AI is impacting the healthcare industry, it is still a relatively new innovation.
The pros and cons of AI are serious issues as the use of the technology grows across the medical field.
There are many branches we can talk in a book “AI in Medicine”. As a positive impact of advancing science, what are the key topics we want to address in such a topic?
The current paradigm of Medicine and the health concept urgently requests a qualitative shift in light of the epistemological change of medical science. To date, medicine is applied and taught with a wrong mechanistic and deterministic approach that the progress of basic science has overcome by revealing the interaction between subjective- biological-environmental variables and the teleonomy of human nature. To date, this epistemology is necessary for the right approach to the patient, which cannot be only reduced to a bio-technological approach, confounding tools with the person-centered clinical work, which can be avoided by teaching the Person-centered clinical method, the result of the epistemological revolution of medical science.
Person-centered medicine teaching, interactionism, and teleonomy must be introduced in all Medical schools that to date risk being closed only in a bio-technological paradigm, when to date, empathy, person-diagnosis, and the interactionist multidimensional resource-centered clinical method since 1999 taught at the Milan School of Medicine of Ambrosiana University, allow saving suffering, drugs, and hospital admissions.
In order to accelerate the Medicine paradigm shift, the Milan School of Medicine of Ambrosiana University and the World Health Committee, under the patronage of the European Parliament, and the Pontifical Academy of Science promoted two world Congresses in streaming
THE PARADIGM CHANGE OF MEDICINE: THE EPISTEMOLOGICAL AND SCIENTIFIC BASIS OF PERSON-CENTERED MEDICINE
21-22 June 2023
PERSON-CENTERED MEDICINE: THE PARADIGM CHANGE IN MEDICAL SCIENCE AND MEDICAL EDUCATION
23 June 2023
The two Congresses, after those of 2017 and 2021, further confirmed the change of paradigm of Medicine introduced by Ambrosiana University in 1999. (www.healthparadigmchange.it)
Currently there is an urgent need for an adaptation of medical education to the Person-Centered Medicine paradigm and the Persn-centered clinical method
The Milan Medical School of Ambrosiana University, which first introduced in 1999 the new paradigm that changed also in 2011 the current concept of health , since 2003 has promoted in Italy a master’s degree in Person-Centered Medicine and since 2009 an international program and a PHD (www.unambro.it), of which the Summer School is part.
In 2023 the Summer School is held from 4 to 9 September 2023 in the beautiful Viareggio, ( Italy-Toscana) "The pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea", with the collaboration of the province of Lucca.
Today there is an urgent need for clinical teachers able to teach the true , not false medicine.
The proceedings of the Concresses can be requested to firstname.lastname@example.org ( without any charge).

A patient with desminopathy (mutation Thr341Pro DES in a heterozygous state) with the progression of the disease has a decrease in taste and smell, immunosuppression, and an increase in IgA in the blood.
Oddly enough, but all this is characteristic of infections, including viral ones. For example, it is known that if the hepatitis C virus is not treated, then death will occur in 20 years.
In the identified case of late onset desminopathy, muscle weakness manifests itself at the age of 30, and death occurs 20 years after the onset of the disease.
Could the desmin mutation in myofibrillar myopathy be caused by an infection?
Perhaps the infection contributes to the progression of desminopathy?
What are examples of not yet fully discovered, explored and described unique natural ecosystems and species of flora, fauna and fungi, unique organic compounds produced by particular species of the biosphere, their medicinal and other properties, which may be irretrievably lost due to the human-induced extinction of many species of flora and fauna, i.e. the ongoing and human-induced 6th great extinction of many species of life forms in the context of the over 3 billion year development of life on planet Earth?
The venomous Australian bird spider lives in cities in Australia and is also dangerous to humans. The venom of the Australian bird spider kills a variety of insects that feed in grasslands and agricultural fields but apart from bees. Therefore, research work is underway to create a natural, organic insecticide based on the venom of the Australian bird spider, which could be used in agricultural fields instead of chemical pesticides, which poison the environment and also kill bees. This is an excellent example of how, in an evolutionary process lasting millions of years, nature has created unique organic compounds that can solve many problems for the development of human civilisation. There are undoubtedly many species of flora, fauna, fungi and micro-organisms that are not yet fully known, which could be used in medicine and pharmacy based on natural organic compounds, in the development of herbal medicine, in the development of sustainable organic farming that does not use chemical pesticides and fertilisers, in the protection of trees in forests against pests as part of sustainable forest management, in the restoration of natural ecosystems in areas degraded by civilisation, in counteracting the progressive sterilisation of soils, etc. Such scientific discoveries, which could and probably will be realised in the future, will also be particularly helpful in the modern ecological and intelligent shaping of restored natural highly biodiverse ecosystems. Such scientific discoveries, which could and probably still will be realised in the future, will also be particularly helpful in the modern, ecological and intelligent shaping of restored natural, highly biodiverse ecosystems, restored and rehabilitated, functioning in various geo-climatic environments, geological zones, climatic zones, etc., and carried out in accordance with the principles of sustainability, the achievement of sustainable development goals and the use of the achievements of modern sustainable biotechnology and genetics. Of course, the fields of application beyond sustainable organic agriculture of not yet fully discovered, studied and described unique natural ecosystems and species of flora, fauna and fungi, the unique organic compounds produced by individual species of the biosphere, their medicinal and other properties are numerous. Above all, in the field of herbal medicine and natural medicine, there are many possibilities for the applications of not yet fully discovered, studied and described unique natural ecosystems and species of flora, fauna and fungi for the treatment of various diseases, including many diseases currently considered incurable. Probably many such opportunities to learn about not yet fully discovered, researched and described unique natural ecosystems and species of flora, fauna and fungi, to learn about the unique organic compounds produced by individual species of the biosphere, their healing and other properties have already been irretrievably lost due to the human-induced extinction of many species of flora and fauna, i.e. the ongoing and human-induced 6th great extinction of many species of life forms in the context of the more than 3 billion years of development of life on planet Earth. It is therefore essential to increase the scale of nature conservation and bio-diversity of the planet's natural ecosystems and to stop the deforestation of forests.
In view of the above, I address the following question to the esteemed community of scientists and researchers:
What are examples of not yet fully discovered, studied and described unique natural ecosystems and species of flora, fauna and fungi, unique organic compounds produced by individual species of the biosphere, their medicinal and other properties, which may be irretrievably lost due to the human-induced extinction of many species of flora and fauna, i.e. the ongoing and human-induced 6th great extinction of many species of life forms in the context of the ongoing more than 3 billion years of development of life on planet Earth?
What are examples of not yet fully explored and described extinct species of flora or fauna with unique medicinal or other properties?

By top journals in medicine I refer to JAMA, NEJM, Lancet, BMJ, etc. I recently read a question here asking how to become a peer reviewer and it left me wondering about it.
In a patient with desminopathy (mutation Thr341Pro DES in the heterozygous state) with the progression of the disease, we note signs and symptoms that are also characteristic of botulism: bradycardia, arrhythmia, AV blockade, a significant decrease in the average duration of motor unit potentials according to electroneuromyography, paresis and paralysis of the striated muscles, decreased sweating, paresis of the gastrointestinal tract, dry eyes, dry mouth, symmetry of neurological symptoms, hoarseness, impaired visual acuity, doubling of objects occurs, progressive muscle weakness. These signs and symptoms are characteristic of botulism, only when a case of desminopathy is detected, they proceed slowly.
How many traditional herbs in india are studied and validated till now that is many of traditional doctors who give herbs as medicine do not disclose the name or composition of their medicine and that are lost along with them so i suggest researchers to take this issue as your research topic in future
This question is dedicated only to sharing important research of OTHER RESEARCHERS (not our own) about complex systems, self-organization, emergence, self-repair, self-assembly, and other exiting phenomena observed in Complex Systems.
Please keep in own mind that each research has to promote complex systems and help others to understand them in the context of any scientific filed. We can educate each other in this way.
Experiments, simulations, and theoretical results are equally important.
Links to videos and animations will help everyone to understand the given phenomenon under study quickly and efficiently.
In fields where direct contact with individuals is involved, such as medicine and law, a crucial concern arises: How can one ascertain the credibility of a diploma holder without them having passed a state board exam?
Hi everyone! I got an invitation to submit a paper to the following SCI-E/SCOPUS MDPI journal (special issue):
The Article Processing Charge (APC) is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs) per accepted paper. However, the fees will be fully waived (as it is an invitation to contribute) if I can submit the paper by the end of June 2020.
If anyone have a collaboration idea, please send me a message.
An example of it could be Intel's forthcoming “Falcon Shores” chip which will have 288 gigabytes of memory and support 8-bit floating-point computation. These will be specialized for AI supercomputing.
I am currently an Indonesian high school student passionate about bioinformatics and its potential to drive impactful innovations in the fields of biology and medicine. I am eager to participate in the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair and showcase a research project that can make a significant contribution to the scientific community.
Considering the vast possibilities within the realm of bioinformatics, I would greatly appreciate any suggestions, ideas, or insights for a research project that aligns with the following criteria:
- Impactful Innovation: I am looking for a research topic that has the potential to make a significant impact in the biology or medical world. It could involve the development of new algorithms, computational tools, or methodologies that address critical challenges in these domains.
- Bioinformatics Focus: The research should predominantly involve bioinformatics techniques, such as data analysis, data mining, machine learning, genomics, proteomics, or other computational approaches. It should leverage the power of data and computational tools to gain insights into biological processes or contribute to medical advancements.
- Feasibility for a High School Student: As a high school student, I have certain limitations in terms of resources, time, and expertise. Therefore, I am seeking research ideas that are feasible for a high school-level project. While the topic should be challenging enough to meet the standards of the Regeneron ISEF, it should also be manageable within the scope of a high school research project.
Thank you in advance for your valuable suggestions and insights.
Not all but so many state, private & foundation university diplomas in many countries are not credible enough unless extra credited by other offically accepted board exams of relevent countries but if there are no such credible boards available in that countries, therefore what can be done !?
It's just a more general question. I understand that the objectives and methodology must be considered
I am a final year medical student and have already participated in systematic reviews, case reports and other types of articles. I am interested in expanding my experience as a researcher
If anyone is preparing a study and wants to give me the opportunity to participate, just contact me.
We've seen a surge of 34 types of emerging and critical technologies that its implications may be immense in transformation of biopharmaceuticals and biomanfacturing in addition to innovated medical devices. So what are the expectations for more futre beneficial applications?

A human is an ability to eat, to walk, to memorize, to think, to rightly express your moods. Then he goes to work as electrician, musician, physicicist, physician, etc. All these human activity is generated by human society, government.
WHERE IS A PURE MAN? Do we think about ourselves (our memory, thinking, why do we live, why do we do such action, etc) frequently? NOT AT ALL! We immersed in highly complicated "whirlpool" оf self-preservation of ourselves, our children, our parents, our relatives, our MONEYS, etc. Our self-preservation is so complicated that we have no time to think on other subjects. So we are ants, we get commands and we just execute it. That is essence if our life - we do what we do not understand but we are in hurry to make it on time! All it is a comedy.
Besides Shakespeare`s phrase "all the world is a theater" I say all the world is comedy.

I would like to know how I can filter better my research. Every time the website shows me 100 pages and most of the articles are not related to what I am interested in. I usually write, for example, "children" AND "medicine" AND "narrative". Is it right? Or is there another way to search here?
Thanks in advance!
A lot of people complain about expensive drugs, and the drug companies tell you that the reason for this is "the cost of development" and in particular "clinical trials". Before I tell you my idea, I must tell you that I am not a doctor and a complete amateur in every sense.
Now, to my idea. At the same time as we have expensive drugs people complain about power structures in academia, large publication gateways and huge tuition fees that prevent access to research and knowledge.
What if these two factors were seen as one problem? You widen the entrance at the same time as you drastically increase the subsidies for clinical trials, thus relieving drug companies of their alibi. When I say widen the entrance, I mean compulsory open access publication for certain types of projects and public domain and creative commons patents. So you pay less for research and also for clinical trials.
(If you like my idea, I also have a patent for a perpetual motion machine.)
During my clinical life as MD, psychiatrically I deduced that "Almost 99 % of declared child-geniuses are due to both parents are rich & borderline/schizophrenic so their child(ren) is/are genious for them forcing these children even get masters and PhD degrees in unreliable way in unaccredited institutes while at teen ages." These borderline/schizophrenic parents must be seriously treated psychiatric clinics otherwise they can ruin not just their lives but also their children severely ! Prodigiousness in childhood in music or in arts are possible, I have no doubt in that at all, but not masters (MA/MS) &/or doctorates (PhD) at chilhood !
I'm currently writing a paper comparing medical students' impression of evolutionary biology prior to and after my country's adoption of a new K-12 curriculum that includes an explicit class discussing the foundational concepts of evolutionary biology. As a student who also plans to go into medicine, I would just like to know if mastering foundational evolutionary concepts is really important in studying classes like pathology?
As a newcomer, where can I find a list of potential international research grants with their timeline for PhD studies in medicine and cancer fields? Additionally, where can I find an example of an appealing grant proposal that includes an effective budgeting plan?
Why and how is this kind of long-term potentiation (LTP) possible?
Is LTP even needed for all sorts of synaptic plasticity and long-term memory formation?
Long-term potentiation (LTP which is necessary for synaptic plasticity and long-term memory formation) needs repeats and reinforcement of the engrams to be triggered.
However, apparently everybody automatically "absorbs" a lot of information immediately and also permanently, even without needing any extra effort (at least any conscious effort), which seems to be needed for LTP to happen. Everyone seems to have this ability, although it is even stronger in those with better memories.
People simply "learn" many things once; and many of those learned items remain there for a pretty long duration, and in many cases even for the rest of their lives. This seems to happen without any repeats, at least without any apparent or conscious efforts to remember or re-remember those memories. This is the case for a lot of semantic information (especially the information of interest or importance to the person) as well as a large portion of the contents of episodic memory.
Why and how is this kind of LTP possible?
Perhaps attention plays a major role here, e.g., being interesting and important automatically triggers LTP without a further need for repeats.
But such effortless long-term memorization happens also in the case of a lot of semantic information or autobiographical events that are not inherently interesting or significant to the person.
Is LTP even needed for all sorts of synaptic plasticity and long-term memory formation?
What is this curious non-updatable mega memory? Does it have any scientific terms?
What are its causes and mechanisms?
I have had the honor of witnessing very rare people who have some strange forms of mega memory: They effortlessly, automatically, and immediately memorize many difficult things such as phone numbers or their difficult and comprehensive books, etc. And they retain those easily captured memories for a very very long time (a couple of decades at least), without any smallest effort or reinforcement. Not to mention that they record or remember almost everything else (semantic or episodic) quite easily, and also with a lot of details. Furthermore, they are very very accurate in recalling those items. For example, they can serve as pretty reliable living phone books; or for example, they are extremely awesome at medicine, etc.
But when I am talking about "strange", I don't mean their super-human ability to easily capture such vast amounts of information for such long durations and recall them accurately.
Their super-human ability is of course strange. But the even stranger part of their memory is that once it is captured, it cannot be updated or revised easily. For example, if they misunderstand something the first time, it will take perhaps 10 or 20 attempts over days or weeks for their colleagues to remind them of the mistake and ask them to correct their misunderstanding.
It is like that once their memory is formed the very first time, it is set in stone. It is absorbed very efficiently and strongly, and at the same time, not much prone to future updates.
What is this curious non-updatable mega memory? Does it have any scientific terms?
What are its causes and mechanisms?
Interestingly, the EIC of @JCompEffRes wrote to me that they ”we will be contacting the authors to discuss whether a correction notice [for the following paper doi/10.2217/cer-2022-0031by @magdalena zeglen @tomasz brzostek] is appropriate” even though the letter to the editor was denied publication. The EIC said “the criticism in the Letter is not valid” but when I asked for a list of examples in which points I made are not "valid", I received no response. Another example of silencing a constructive debate on #evidencebasedmedicine #evidencebasedpractice #systematicreview #evidencesynthesis #Parkinson’sDisease #Opicapone
I have the pleasure of sharing the letter here.
Any comments regarding the alleged “lack of valid points”, highly welcomed. Best wishes, Pawel Posadzki, PhD
Please spread the word: Folding at Home (https://foldingathome.org/) is an extremely powerful supercomputer composed of thousands of home computers around the world. It tries to simulate protein folding to Fight diseases. We can increase its power even further by simply running its small program on our computers and donating the spare (already unused and wasted) capacity of our computers to their supercomputation.
After all, a great part of our work (which is surfing the web, writing texts and stuff, communicating, etc.) never needs more than a tiny percent of the huge capacity of our modern CPUs and GPUs. So it would be very helpful if we could donate the rest of their capacity [that is currently going to waste] to such "distributed supercomputer" projects and help find cures for diseases.
The program runs at a very low priority in the background and uses some of the capacity of our computers. By default, it is set to use the least amount of EXCESS (already wasted) computational power. It is very easy to use. But if someone is interested in tweaking it, it can be configured too via both simple and advanced modes. For example, the program can be set to run only when the computer is idle (as the default mode) or even while working. It can be configured to work intensively or very mildly (as the default mode). The CPU or GPU can each be disabled or set to work only when the operating system is idle, independent of the other.
Please spread the word; for example, start by sharing this very post with your contacts.
Also give them feedback and suggestions to improve their software. Or directly contribute to their project.

When staining with hematoxylin and eosin of a muscle biopsy from a patient with T341P desminopathy, we observe accumulations of inclusions similar to nuclei (arrows in figures 1 and 2, x280). And outside of these accumulations - adipose tissue, which used to be muscle tissue. There are no such massive accumulations of inclusions in adjacent muscle fibers. We assume that clusters of inclusions are not nuclei? Figure 2 is the inverted figure 1.
In most contexts, the terms alternative medicine, complementary medicine, integrative medicine, holistic medicine, natural medicine, and unconventional medicine are almost synonymous.
Heyer et al. in their recent paper "Remdesivir-induced emergence of SARS-CoV2 variants in patients with prolonged infection" published in Cell Reports Medicine have reported that remdesivir treatment can result in rapid fixation of newly acquired mutations. They have also noted that "Treatment-associated evolutionary bottlenecks promote emergence of novel variants". It's great to see that the validity of our early hypothesis has been confirmed by other researchers. We strongly believe that the "Remdesivir-induced emergence of SARS-CoV2 variants" is the dark side of the antivirals such as remdesivir that needes further investigation.

Would like to screen the health of the population. Where are certain doctors overrun? Therefore, looking for a platform with time for waiting lists for seeing a doctor, sorted by specialization (Cardio, HNO, etc....).
Haven't found much as of yet. Any ideas, on where to find a good platform? Probably some US states?
Im a PG student from faculty of medicine, Universiti of Malaya, Malaysia. I would like to ask about CAKI-2, we couldn't find them in Malaysia and we are committed to certain budget, deadlines and thesis based on this project, anyone from Malaysia willing to help us provide this cell line or any trusted source or a lab uses the cell line to give as aliquot ? Thank you in advance.
Working in the research field, you will be weighted by your h-index.
However, publications might not be cited by others despite your hard work.
Do you think we should publish only citable research or publish as many as we could to contribute the academic field?
I would like to write a literature review, to begin with, and continue to a more in-depth research paper, about the contributions of Indigenous American knowledge about healing and medicine that are used in western medicine practice today.
I am an undergraduate at the University of Cross River State, Nigeria currently pursuing a microbiology program. For familiarity and enhanced understanding of the course, I wish to seek recommendations on the virtual/simulation laboratory software that would be very helpful to me and my colleagues. With my interest in research too, I will be pleased if a research simulator is recommended to help widen my understanding of Microbiological research.
Your recommendations would go a long way to significantly contribute to my academic career as well as my colleagues.
