Future of MedTech - key trends in medical technology - interview for Inspira about latest book The Future of Almost Everything

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Biotechnology, Genetics, Gene Therapy, Stem Cells

What did you learn as an inventor/innovator making a ground-breaking medical device in the early 1980s? It was an amazing time – as the world’s first desktop computers hit the markets in 1978.  I started a company called Medicom Ltd, which developed a suite of programmes to interview patients, help make a diagnosis, record health statistics, do accounts for General Practice doctors, connect to hospital lab equipment and so on. I learned that the most important thing about all medtech is to keep things simple and reliable: doctors, nurses and other health care workers are busy and need devices that work....

Oncolytic Viruses - New Cure for Cancer? Facts about Oncolytic Viruses

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Biotechnology, Genetics, Gene Therapy, Stem Cells

Video and article explaining about oncolytic viruses for a non-technical audience. We could be about to see the most dramatic advance in cancer treatment for 30 years.  A new form of treatment that is relatively easy to make, has virtually no side effects, with potential to treat a wide variety of cancers, when used in combination with more traditional treatments. That is the implication of early studies in laboratories and in humans, if all goes well in the next stages. Viruses are a common cause of cancer.  So what about creating a new virus to cure cancer?  Many natural viruses are known to be “oncolytic”. They destroy cancer cells but they damage normal, healthy tissue as well. Scientists have taken a variety of human viruses which normally cause illness, and altered their genes so that they are able to enter human cells, but cannot activate – except in cancer cells.

Oncolytic viruses to Treat Cancer. How oncolytic viruses kill cancer cells

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Biotechnology, Genetics, Gene Therapy, Stem Cells

Over 50 years ago, scientists noticed that people with some viral infections were sometimes cured of cancer in surprising ways.  They discovered that the viruses were able to kill cancer cells. These were called oncolytic viruses – onco means cancer, lytic means that cells burst open and die. All these oncolytic viruses made people ill, so scientists tried to make new types of virus that would be less harmful to normal cells. Then they made an extraordinary discovery:  almost all cancer cells in solid tumours work in similar ways.  They grow in an uncontrolled manner and lack all kinds of normal functions.  What if we could make a damaged virus, with useless genetic code, where the code only works if activated inside a cancer cell? Today there are many different types of oncolytic viruses that have been altered from natural viruses in the laboratory, so that they kill cancer cells, while not damaging (many) normal cells.
