|NANJING Marcell Dareus Jersey , Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- A super-sized DNA sequencing platform will be built in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, in order to create a genetic information database for ethnic Chinese, according to the provincial health authority.
The DNA project is part of the National Health & Medicine Big Data (Nanjing) Center, a six-billion yuan project under construction in Nanjing's Jiangbei New Area, said Lan Qing, deputy director of the provincial health and family planning commission.
During the first phase Jalen Ramsey Jersey , health and medical information on about 80 million people, the equivalent of the population in Jiangsu, will be stored at the center, Lan said.
"When the facilities are ready, the designed capacity for DNA sequencing will be up to 400,000 to 500,000 samples per year Telvin Smith Jersey ," he said.
The DNA sequencing project will be jointly undertaken by the state-owned Yangzi Group, Southeast University and Nanjing Medical University.
Researchers will then use big data created in the database to study genetic mutations related to major diseases, look for the impact of interaction between genes and environmental concerns on human heath, and provide statistical support for diagnosis and treatment of major diseases, Lan said.
Cai Long, board director of Yangzi Group, said the program will focus on population genetics Blake Bortles Jersey , newborns, childhood brain and cognitive development, cancer, and rare and chronic diseases.
The database is expected to be complete in around four years, he said.
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- An academic medical center at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has launched the first "mobile stroke unit" (MSU) on the West Coast of the United States this week to bring the hospital to the patient A. J. Cann Jaguars Jersey , potentially leading to higher survival rates and better outcomes for patients.
"With the UCLA Health Mobile Stroke Unit, we are bringing the hospital to the patient instead of the patient to the hospital, in order to save as much brain as possible," Dr. Jeffrey Saver, director of the UCLA Comprehensive Stroke Center, was quoted as saying in a news release.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), someone in the United States suffers a stroke every 40 seconds. Every 4 minutes Dante Fowler Jr Jaguars Jersey , someone dies of a stroke. Strokes kill about 140,000 Americans each year, which is 1 out of every 20 deaths.
When treating stroke victims, every second counts. But in large cities, dense traffic can make it difficult to get a patient to the emergency room in a timely manner, and in rural areas, specialized care can be miles away.
"Rapid response is critical Yannick Ngakoue Jaguars Jersey , because the sooner a stroke is treated, the better the patient's outcome," said Dr. May Nour, medical director of the UCLA Arline and Henry Gluck Stroke Rescue Program. "We know from research at UCLA that in a typical stroke, every minute that goes by without treatment, 2 million brain cells die."
So UCLA Health is testing MSU to help medical personnel start treatment in the field, allowing doctors to make a diagnosis Myles Jack Jaguars Jersey , administer medication and even conduct Computed Tomography (CT) scans before arriving at the hospital.
The high-tech vehicle is a unique type of ambulance equipped with a mobile CT scanner, which allows doctors to diagnose and treat strokes in the field with appropriate medications. Within the unit are a mobile blood-testing laboratory, as well as a neurologist, critical care nurse, CT technologist and paramedic.
In the initial phase of the pilot program, a neurologist specializing in stroke treatment will be riding in the unit. As the program develops, a neurologist will oversee care more efficiently via a live video and voice connection from Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Dede Westbrook Jaguars Jersey , according to UCLA.
The use of specially equipped ambulances has begun to spread across the United States. The first U.S. MSU launched in Houston in early 2014, following the world's first in Berlin, which began running in early 2011. So far, about ten other U.S. MSUs are in operation, with most of them having been put into service during the past 15 months.
The UCLA unit is the first such unit to operate in California. It is now part of a U.S. national study to test the value of starting stroke care in the field.
"When stroke victims are not treated quickly, they are more likely to need a lifetime of costly care," said Nour. "If we are able to treat and improve outcomes for 25 patients over a 5-year period Dawuane Smoot Jaguars Jersey , we will break even on the cost of the mobile stroke unit."
When a documentary opened on the deep sea divers who retrieved around 300 bodies, mostly schoolchildren, from a South Korean ferry disaster, tickets sold out -- but it played to half-empty cinemas.
There was no indication at the time, but "Diving Bell" -- about the controversial 2014 sinking of the Sewol -- was a victim of the sprawling South Korean corruption and power abuse scandal that has brought millions of people onto the streets and seen President Park Geun-Hye impeached.
The film's distributor Kim Il-Kwon was one of thousands of artists secretly blacklisted by the conservative government for voicing "left-wing" thoughts -- meaning criticism of the authorities.
"I was so surprised" by the vacant seats, he told AFP. "The movie was the talk of the town and many people had showed interest before its release."
