People who are living in poverty and inadequate sanitation are the primary victims of infections, diseases, and infectious illnesses. Too complicate matters, diseases like tuberculosis and measles that approximately eradicated a century ago are once again on the rise. On the other hand, many other common eminently treatable infection diseases like flu and norovirus are becoming the reason for several deaths every year.
Auspiciously with the advancement in medical technology now we can control the infection, contain the outbreak and able to give the supplies of life-saving in the backward areas affected with the diseases. Supplies like drone-delivered organs and powered vaccines proved as the innovations to beat the disease in a fast and efficient way.
In short, we can say that these tools will help to improve the survival rate for patients suffering from infectious diseases. Moreover, these tools can also help to understand pathogen epidemiology which is crucial for the development of global disease control program.
Medication through Injections
There are a few types of medicines that can only delivered to patients with the help of an injection. The continual pinprick of needles becomes painful for those patients and passionate for healthcare providers. On the other hand, during the shortage of sterile hypodermic needles in some backward areas will become the reason of stroke and infection. At the moment, researchers from Harvard’s Brigham & Women’s Hospital and MIT’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research claimed that they could carry insulin beyond the complications of the digestive system into the bloodstream peacefully. Inject life-saving medicine with the help of edible Swiss-Army-knife without the pain of the needle injection.
A pill once swallowed creates issues a spring-activated dart of insulin straight into the stomach wall. Patients have type 1 diabetes, the hereditary disease version in which the immune system attacks pancreatic cells (responsible for producing blood sugar-regulating insulin), hopefully, sooner be able to control their condition with the support of this pea-sized apparatus.
Researchers report their results in journal Science that they “are encouraging leopard ability to use crushing speeds faster”: The pill’s applicant knows how to position itself so that its microscope injection can be directly trained towards stomach tissue, without along the way perforating any gastric organs. Almost 10% of hospitalized patients faced a new disease during their stay at hospital mostly when they have contact with germ-laden surfaces and equipment. As a result, only this problem is responsible for 1 lac annually deaths in the United States. Whereas around 7 lac people die every year in the effect of infection due to drug-resistant, malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV.
