Streptomyces in Nature and Medicine: The Antibiotic Makers

Description

Although plants are a very important part of a garden, we must not forget about the important contribution that soil makes. Bacteria living in the soil also produce compounds important as modern antibiotics. Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Tuberculosis

Description

Dr Helen McShane has been working on a new TB vaccine for 10 years. She explains why developing countries are especially in need of a new vaccine since HIV and TB epidemics overlap and show a devastating synergy. There are about 9 million new cases and 1.7 million deaths every year from tuberculosis. Dr Helen McShane developed MVA85A, a vaccine with the aim to boost the cellular immune response induced by BCG. BCG, now over 100 years old, remains the only licensed vaccine against Tuberculosis. It confers good protection against severe disease and meningitis but doesn't protect against lung disease. MVA85A was the first vaccine of the new generation to enter into efficacy testing. It is currently being tested in The Gambia, Senegal and South Africa. Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Cochrane Lecture 2013: Trials In Emergency Care

Description

Ian Roberts, lecturer in Clinical Trials Unit, LSHTM, gives the 2013 Cochrane lecture on Trials in Emergency Care. He discusses the need for clinical trials in emergency situations and explains how such trials can and should be conducted. Clinical trials are essential for improving the safety and effectiveness of emergency care. Many such trials seek to evaluate the effects of time-critical treatments for life threatening conditions, such as traumatic brain injury, severe haemorrhage or acute respiratory distress. The need for urgent treatment, often excludes the possibility of obtaining informed consent. Although these situations are an established exception to the general rule of prior informed consent, ethics committees and regulators often insist on various unhelpful rituals that delay Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Drug Discovery

Description

Professor Chas Bountra explains how new drugs can offer novel treatments for neurodegenerative and gastrointestinal diseases, as well as pain disorders. Professor Chas Bountra is interested in identifying and validating target proteins for drug discovery. Various technologies and strategies have allowed him to progress promising clinical candidates into Phase I, II, III studies, and to market. Drug candidates are first selected by screening compounds capable of binding to a target protein. Those compounds are then tested in various assay systems, healthy volunteers and finally in patients. Academic research excels at defining good target proteins. Pharmaceutical companies then facilitate the transition from basic research to clinical trials, producing new therapies for patients.

The history of medicine: A Scottish perspective The history of medicine: A Scottish perspective

Description

In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the approach to medicine was vastly different from today. Health is now recognised, at least in most European countries, as a universal right, but what was it like in the past? How did social and political boundaries affect access to treatment, and what were the treatments of the day? This free course, The history of medicine: A Scottish perspective, examines how Scottish healthcare institutions were influenced by these underlying social, economic, political and cultural contexts.

Chromatin Remodelling

Description

Dr Erika Mancini explains how malfunctions in the regulation of chromatin structure often leads to complex multi-system diseases and cancer, notably leukemia. Dr Erika Mancini is interested in the role of chromatin in the regulation of gene transcription. All our cells contain the same set of genes, but only some of them are transcribed at any point in a particular tissue. Regulation of gene transcription is strongly linked to chromatin, physical packaging of the DNA within the nucleus. Molecular Mechanisms influencing DNA packaging Chromatin plays an important role in the regulation of gene expression. The movement of nucleosomes, packing and unpacking DNA, is governed by chromatin remodelling ATPases. Malfunctions in the regulation of chromatin structure often leads to complex multi-sy Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Malaria and Global Health

Description

Dr Climent Casals-Pascual explains how the development of new tools to diagnose and manage malaria more effectively will allow us to decrease the mortality of this condition. Dr Climent Casals-Pascual is interested in severe malaria, particularly its diagnosis and clinical management. Clinical symptoms of severe malaria are similar to those of other diseases like pneumonia and meningitis. In tropical countries, poor diagnosis often results in sub-optimal treatments. Integrating proteomic, genomic and clinical data will help us explain differences in clinical outcome in severe malaria. Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

A body of fluids? Physiology in pre-modern western medicine

Description

Professor Helen King (Professor of Classical Studies, The Open University) delivers the 2011 McGovern Lecture. The notion of a 'body of fluids' being replaced by a 'body of organs' is widespread in the history of Western medicine, and the female body is seen as more 'fluid' than the male body. Yet, despite such claims, recent work on the pre-modern period has focused on anatomy rather than physiology. In this lecture, Professor King examines contemporary assumptions about the history of the body and the role of physiology in past societies.

Dr. Brian Angus on Tropical Medicine

Description

Writer and medical historian Conrad Keating talks to Dr. Brian Angus, Director of the Wellcome Trust UK Centre for Clinical Tropical Medicine in Oxford, about his interest in science and how this inspired him to work with infectious diseases in Africa. Dr Brian Angus originally worked with Professor Nick White in Thailand and joined the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine in 1993. In this wide-ranging discussion with the writer and medical historian Conrad Keating, Brian talks about his work with medical students, how he contracted Dengue fever in Thailand, and why scientific research on tropical diseases in developing countries benefits the people of Britain.

Medicine without Frontiers: An Oxford physician-scientist working in Kenya.

Description

On one of Kevin Marsh's regular visits to Oxford, the historian Conrad Keating caught up with the world-renowned malariologist and asked him what initially drew him to tropical medicine... Africa is the world's most malarious continent, and the east coast of Kenya has been particularly debilitated by the disease. In 1987 Kevin Marsh visited the area and recognised that the region offered great possibilities for an integrated programme of research on malaria that linked basic scientific, clinical and epidemiological approaches. In collaboration with the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) and Oxford University, and supported by the Wellcome Trust, a small, dedicated team began work in 1989. From modest beginnings in Kilifi, the Wellcome Research Programme has grown under Kevin Marsh Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Forging a New Frontier in Oxford Medicine

Description

The historian Conrad Keating continues his history of Oxford's groundbreaking contribution to health in the tropics by asking David Warrell what motivated him to work in Africa... The modern history of Oxford's medical contribution to the great neglected diseases of mankind begins with David Warrell's appointment as Director of the Mahidol-Oxford-Wellcome Unit in Bangkok, Thailand in May, 1979. Tropical research had fascinated Warrell since his time working in Nigeria and Addis Ababa in 1968. Together with his wife Mary, a medical virologist, he was chosen by David Weatherall, the Nuffield Professor of Medicine, to be Oxford's first practitioner of "medicine in the tropics" and he set himself the task of researching the patho-physiology of diseases.

Sir David Weatherall on Malaria

Description

Conrad Keating, the medical historian, opens his series with an interview with Sir David Weatherall to mark World Malaria Day on April 25th 2010. Sir David was appointed Nuffield Professor of Clinical Medicine in 1974, and in 1989 he founded the Institute of Molecular Medicine (in 2000 it was renamed The Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine). Sir David tells the story of the evolution of tropical medicine in Oxford from its inception in the late 1970s to its unrivaled standing in the developing world today.
