Major Breakthrough in Cervical Cancer Treatment Celebrated as the Most Significant in Two Decades

A groundbreaking development in the treatment of cervical cancer has emerged, with scientists hailing it as the most significant breakthrough in two decades. Their approach involves administering a course of affordable existing drugs before standard radiotherapy treatment. During the ESMO medical conference, trial results were unveiled, indicating that this approach reduced the risk of women dying from cervical cancer or experiencing a cancer recurrence by 35%. Cancer Research UK, which financed the research, described the results as "remarkable" and anticipates that medical clinics will soon adopt this treatment protocol for patients. Cervical cancer affects numerous women annually, particularly those in their early 30s, in the UK. Despite improvements in radiotherapy care, can...

Heart disease is one of Malaysia’s main causes of death

Heart disorders are among the major causes of mortality in Malaysia, accounting for 17 percent of the 18,515 documented fatalities in 2020, according to Health Director-General Datuk Dr Muhammad Radzi Abu Hassan. According to the report titled 'The Direct Healthcare Cost of Noncommunicable Diseases in Malaysia,' published in 2022, in 2017, it was estimated that RM3.93 billion out of a total of RM9.65 billion in healthcare was used to treat heart patients. “The cost is expected to continue to increase if appropriate measures are not taken to control and prevent the disease,” he said in a statement today in conjunction with the World Heart Day Friday.

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan wants to eradicate human disease by 2100

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg recently revealed their goals to end all human sickness by 2100. They intend to create a computing system that researchers may use in conjunction with AI to categorise cells and forecast how they will behave when diseased. According to Chan and Zuckerberg, the data might be utilised to produce new discoveries that fully eliminate human disease. The high-performance computer cluster, which will include 1,000 or more GPUs, will enable AI and huge language models for biomedicine at scale. “AI is creating new opportunities in biomedicine, and building a high-performance computing cluster dedicated to life science research will accelerate progress on important scientific questions about how our cells work. “De...
