New device analyzes your breath to find out if you have a serious illness

Published

on

Based on an ancestral medical concept, a team of researchers has developed a new device to detect in the breath some signs of presence of serious pathologies.

What our breath hides

Whether it feels good or bad, our breath speaks volumes about our lifestyle and our health. In the past, well before the arrival of current technologies, doctors could rely on breath and body odor to diagnose potential diseases.

It’s an interesting practice and brought up to date, because several chemical compounds present in the breath betray the presence of heavy pathologies such as diabetes, lung cancer, or Parkinson’s disease. Therefore, there’s the opportunity for the researchers to diagnose these diseases without having to put patients through expensive and stressful exams.

Be careful not to mix everything

If the bad breath can be explained by the consumption of certain foods, the alcohol abuse or other criteria such as the copious and late meals, the researchers found themselves faced with another problem: the results. Their analyzes can be very easily skewed either by the metabolism of patients that changes according to various events such as a sudden change in weight or sexual activity.

Design “a breathalyser for serious diseases”

The researchers first developed various instruments for measuring the level of certain compounds in the breath, for example glucose or acetone. But researchers quickly came up against various problems related to the significant costs of these instruments and techniques.

After several attempts, scientists have managed to create a more efficient device. Consisting of a light ring producing ultraviolet, filters and a camera, the camera manages to capture the molecules with greater precision and to render its analysis in the image. Conclusive results that allow considering more tests with this “olfactory camera,” also note that its great versatility allows combining the tool with other devices to expand its potential.

Scientists discover a surprising effect of breast milk

Published

on

Many scientific studies extol the nutritional benefits of breast milk. But here’s a surprising new hypothesis: it would also allow babies to differentiate day and night and develop their circadian rhythm.

Let’s start at the beginning: every woman is free to decide whether or not to breastfeed her child. This is a personal choice and the fact that a mother wants it or not, and even may or may not breastfeed her baby, is not something that should be forced. That being said, five American researchers have just made an astonishing discovery about breast milk: beyond nutrition, it would also bring newborns a certain amount of information and may play a role in the development of the circadian rhythm of the child, for breast milk would not be composed in the same way in the morning as in the evening.

The composition of breast milk varies

Scientists at the University of California have observed that morning milk is on average three times more concentrated in cortisol than in the evening. This hormone is associated with stress and would make the milk at the beginning of the day more energizing.

In the evening, however, the milk would contain more melatonin, also known as “sleep hormone.” This would make breastmilk at the end of the day more calming, and mean to the newborn that it’s time to sleep.

“These observed differences in children’s diets may explain why there is such variability in the development of the daily rhythm from one child to another,” says Dr. Jennifer Hahn-Holbrook, lead author of this study. And that might explain why some babies do their nights fast, while others wake up their parents in the middle of the night sometimes many months after birth.

Rethinking breastfeeding

For researchers, this is also a sign that we need to rethink the way we feed infants, especially for women who choose to draw their milk. “Giving a baby a bottle of milk in the morning at night, with its high level of cortisol and low level of melatonin, could be the nutritional equivalent of turning on the light just before going to bed,” they write.

If this proves to be true, “there is a simple solution” reassure the scientists. “Mothers can, for example, label their milk according to the time at which it was fired and coordinate the bottles by giving morning milk in the morning, and evening milk at night.”

As the researchers point out, however, this is only preliminary work and additional studies will test this theory. But if it turns out to be true, it could be important information to know to optimize the feeding of your child.

Alzheimer’s disease could be transmissible during a neurosurgery operation

Published

on

In the brains of eight patients treated years ago by growth hormones, a British neurologist found protein linked to the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. This is a discovery that revives the debate on the transmissibility of neurodegenerative pathology, and which also highlights the need for better disinfection of instruments used in neurosurgery.

Nothing proves at the moment that Alzheimer’s disease is contagious. Researchers have come to the contrary to reveal that eight patients treated decades ago by growth hormones had received, at the same time, a protein related to the appearance of the neurodegenerative pathology. You may read about the study in the Nature journal here.

At a press conference, the neurologist John Collinge of University College London announced at the time of the discovery that they have detected in the brain and the vessels of patients aged thirty years a substance called “beta-amyloid,” a peptide that accumulates outside nerve cells in the form of plaques in Alzheimer’s patients.

Too young for such an amount of beta-amyloid protein to be naturally present in their body, the eight patients had all received, in the past, injections of growth hormones.

Old samples studied closely

To determine the possible role of these hormones in the important presence of beta-amyloid in these eight patients, John Collinge and his team were interested in the hormones that were injected to them several decades ago. Samples were preserved in powder form. This unexpected discovery raises many questions about the possibility of transmission of Alzheimer’s disease. There is a trail that researchers now plan to explore in greater depth by examining the possibility that another protein (Tau protein, modified in the case of Alzheimer’s disease) is linked to neurodegenerative disease.

Surgical precautions needed

While waiting to learn more, the neurologist recommends caution with respect to certain surgical practices. If his findings are confirmed, neurosurgery instruments could potentially be the vectors of these proteins leading to the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

“Alzheimer’s disease may in some circumstances be transmitted by neurosurgery instruments,” worries John Collinge. However, he ended on a reassuring tone:

“I think it is important that we continue research on this and develop new ways to eliminate these elements in order to avoid any risk of contamination.” And the neurosurgeon finally advances wise advice: “No one should have a neurosurgery operation as a result of that.”

Much remains to be done before we can determine with certainty whether or not Alzheimer’s disease is contagious.
