Leiden, Austria, November 19, 2012 - A video showcasing how in vivo image-guided cell therapy is revolutionising medicine and describing ENCITE’s strong contribution to this revolution has been launched at the ENCITE’s workshop “on cell imaging and tracking: now and the future” at the Leiden University Medical Centre/NL on November 5, 2012.
For three patients, each affected by one of today’s major health care problems – diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease – cell therapy represents a promising treatment. Transplanted living cells act as an “active drug” by producing hormones, destroying tumour cells or regenerating damaged tissues. However, there is a major hurdle to be overcome before these novel cell therapies can be made available to patients… The mechanisms underlying how cell therapy works are poorly understood. To watch the video, please visit the ENCITE website (www.encite.org) and/or download the file here.
ENCITE has made a real impact on the treatment of healthcare problems that affect our every day lives. To better understand how cell therapy works, prominent researchers have been working together to develop imaging tools for novel cellular therapies. The ENCITE scientists have joined forces to translate important research developments into clinical practice…Helping to make cellular therapy a reality, not just a future dream.

Electronic medical records (EMRs) is a part of Electronic Health Records (EHR). Dermatology outpatients include large number of patients with chronic diseases since they need long follow-up durations for cure. Therefore, EMRs in dermatology will be useful in recording dermatological data. EMRs in dermatology also allows streamlined, one-click retrieval of old records, previous investigation reports, medical bills, X-rays, and graphics of affected area on body on which the dermatologist can
