1 billion children are deprived of one or more services essential for survival and development, 148 million under 5s in developing regions are underweight for their age ,101 million children are not attending primary school, with more girls than boys missing out,22 million infants are not protected from diseases by routine immunization ,7.6 million children worldwide died before their 5th birthday ,4 million newborns worldwide are dying in the first month of life, 2million children under 15 are living with HIV.These are shocking truths before us.Unfortunately ,the world is not much concerned about this and many global campaigns for children end up with no results.The world is commemorating 25th anniversary of the Convention of the Rights of the child in November 2014.This is for sure an occasion for celebration.But this should also mark our commitment to uplift the the millions of children ,who are even declined the right to live.

                         Finding a vein is a pain for many a nurses and for the patients.
Vein Viewer is a solution, which projects the digital image of the patient's vein pattern real time. This is more helpful for Intra venous ( IV) insertion in paediatrics, where small veins are difficult to locate. This is also helpful in locating spider and varicose veins.
The process is Harmless .The device projects infra red light to the skin and will get absorbed by the blood ,but reflected by the surrounding tissues . Vein viewer collects those rays and a processed digital image of the vein pattern will be projected using the LED.

Ice creams and Health

by Anagha Mahesh

Fat and other sugary food items when ignite your taste buds, start alerting the brain. And there you get the feeling, 'wow', this stuff tastes great'. Your noggin churns out dopamine and other such feel good chemicals.The pancreas, in the meantime squirts out insulin, which does the activity of moving out sugar out of the bloodstream into your tissues. Ice creams is prepared by chilling a mixture that contains high-fat milk or cream that has fructose and glucose based sweeteners that comes in a form of corn syrup and other flavorings such as vanilla or chocolate.Ice creams are available in vivid varieties and brands and types. In general, it is a beneficial source of energy. Ice creams contain high amount of carbohydrates, that has about 15 grams in about one half cup of servings.Ice cream is also a dietary source of several important minerals. It is particularly rich in calcium and phosphorus, with about 10 percent of the adult recommended dietary allowance, or RDA, of these minerals in a single, one-half-cup serving.But over-eating of ice creams might cause health issues. Ice cream may cause problems for certain people because it is dairy-based and contains lactose, a milk sugar.

CHRONOTHERAPY: A STEP TOWARDS PERSONALIZED TREATMENT FOR CANCER.

by Bose R C


Cancer chronotherapy is about providing anti-cancer treatment at an optimal time. Because the body is governed by precise biological rhythms,  that follow a roughly 24-hour cycle. This can double the efficacy of anti-cancer drugs and can decrease their toxicity up to five-times with regards to the administration of the drug  at exact time within a 24 hour cycle. The variations in biorhythms that exist between persons, is yet to be considered. This study was published in the journal Cancer Research. The study was conducted in mice by international research faculties from  nserm, CNRS and Universit Paris-Sud.This study was based on the discovery made by  Francis Lévi, about 20 years back, seeks to improve the efficacy of chemotherapy treatments. To achieve this, they have measured 27 gene expression in the liver and colon over 24 hours and then analyzed it. Francis Lévi found that, the body's metabolism follows a 24 hour cycle, influenced by the circadian rhythm with precise times of the day or night, this made the toxic anti-cancer drug more toxic to cancer cells and less aggressive to healthy cells.Now the scientists are aiming to validate other chemotherapeutic drugs using a similar model. In addition to gene expression, they are also aiming to measure physiological parameters that are influenced by the biological clock that could help predict the optimal time of treatment. This work may be possible to enhance the efficacy and tolerance of anti-cancer drug and also improve the quality of life of patients, considerably.
