The team is develop a mobile application for parents of preterm infants

For her project of Cheng and Hayes will use mobile technology to collect and report daily observations that may changes changes in clinical practice and public health alert to potential problems sooner here . The team is develop a mobile application for parents of preterm infants, called FitBaby that on the past work Hayes ‘ with Dr. Dan Cooper, a UCI professor of pediatrics building. The system enables parents easily record daily observations on smartphones, including feeding, baby’s activity and weight measurements as parents dealing with the stress of caring for a baby at risk. The system automatically tracks some observations through sensors in the environment. – These work particularly innovative in that we make it more convenient for parents to record daily information about their babies by the automatic detection of a number of key indicators to make, said Hayes. Wellbeing have access to information about previous diagnoses, which can improve the health outcomes of babies and caregivers. Parent well-being often ignored in infant care, Cheng said. Monitor through the to understand to understand, believe the pattern of your own emotional and physical well-being, we believe that the parents are encouraged. Better care for themselves, what to take to a better quality of care for the babies .

Cheng and Hayes were among five research teams in the nation selected by RWJF through its Project Health Design: Rethinking the Power and Potential of Personal Health Records. You will receive a two – year grant to measure how health information can help people get better informed patients and better health care consumers. The fellows will investigate as day – to-day information – ,, interpreted and implemented in real-world clinical settings – such stress of parents of premature infants.

California in Los Angeles immune cell function in vivo, non-invasiveImmune cell function in each individual case can noninvasively at the clinic to a technology which to monitor PET exam PET scan. A team of researchers, led Owen Witte, at the University of California, Los Angeles , has now determined that on mice two different PET probes used in the clinic to monitor immune cell function identify distinct immune cell population. Such dates impact on an impact on the design of clinical PET scans as with those two sensors and insert these probes are monitored the clinic to monitor the effects of drugs for specific immune cell populations targeted.

Immune cells view more glucose as an energy source if active. There are specialized PET probes which are used to this switch can be detected to an increased glucose utilization. In this study researchers found that in mice a retrovirus – induced sarcoma two PET probes noninvasive which a higher glucose recovery cumulative various immune cell populations. In particular FDG accumulation primarily in innate immune response cells, while in the active FAC prevalent CD8 + T cell accumulate. These data suggest that PET could be utilized broadly moment currently non-invasively the effectiveness of many immunomodulating therapies.
