Prosthetic hand gets sense of touch with electronic 'skin'

Prosthetic hand get sonse of touchEngineers have developed an electronic "skin" that allows prosthetic hand users to perceive a real sense of touch.

The e-dermis, when layered on top of the prosthetic hands, restores the sensation of touch through the fingertips. Engineers at Johns Hopkins University published findings Wednesday in the journal Science Robotics.

"This is interesting and new because now we can have a prosthetic hand that is already on the market and fit it with an e-dermis that can tell the wearer whether he or she is picking up something that is round or whether it has sharp points," Luke Osborn, a graduate student in biomedical engineering at Hopkins, said in a press release.

Frustrated AMA adopts sweeping policies to cut gun violence

AMA adopts sweeping policies against gunsWith frustration mounting over lawmakers' inaction on gun control, the American Medical Association on Tuesday pressed for a ban on assault weapons and came out against arming teachers as a way to fight what it calls a public health crisis.

At its annual policymaking meeting, the nation's largest physicians group bowed to unprecedented demands from doctor-members to take a stronger stand on gun violence — a problem the organizations says is as menacing as a lethal infectious disease.

The action comes against a backdrop of recurrent school shootings, everyday street violence in the nation's inner cities, and rising U.S. suicide rates.

The American Medical Association has long opposed assisted suicide. Is that about to change?

Brittany Maynard brought attention to assisted suicide

During his three decades as an emergency-room doctor, Bob Uslander had never written a prescription for a lethal dose of medication. But then he shifted to geriatric and palliative care, and in 2016, a patient suffering from the neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) wanted to use California's new physician-assisted death law.

Uslander was apprehensive. Until then, he had always viewed death as a failure.

“I didn't really know what it would be like to be with somebody who had made the choice and was taking this medication,” he recalled recently. “I didn't know if they would just gently fall asleep or if they would be gasping or struggling.”

Chemo may not be necessary for many breast cancer patients: study

Chemo may not be necessary for breast cancerMost women with the most common form of early-stage breast cancer can safely skip chemotherapy without hurting their chances of beating the disease, doctors are reporting from a landmark study that used genetic testing to gauge each patient’s risk.

The study is the largest ever done of breast cancer treatment, and the results are expected to spare up to 70,000 patients a year in the United States and many more elsewhere the ordeal and expense of these drugs.

5 dead, nearly 200 sickened in romaine lettuce outbreak

Romaine lettuceFour more deaths have been linked to a national food poisoning outbreak blamed on tainted Arizona-grown romaine lettuce, bringing the total to five.

The Arizona growing season is long over and it's unlikely any tainted lettuce is still in stores or people's homes. But there can be a lag in reporting, and reports of illnesses have continued to come in.

In an update Friday, health officials said 25 more cases raised the total to 197 illnesses in 35 states. At least 89 were hospitalized.
