  • University of British Columbia - Researchers closer to being able to change blood types
    can be given to patients of all blood types David Kwan We produced a mutant enzyme that is very efficient at cutting off the sugars in A and B blood and is much more proficient at removing the subtypes of the A antigen that the parent enzyme struggles with said David Kwan the lead author of the study and a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Chemistry To create this high powered enzyme capable of snipping off sugars researchers used a new technology called directed evolution that involves inserting mutations into the gene that codes for the enzyme and selecting mutants that are more effective at cutting the antigens In just five generations the enzyme became 170 times more effective Steve Withers With this enzyme UBC associate professor Jayachandran Kizhakkedathu and colleagues in the Centre for Blood Research were able to remove the wide majority of the antigens in Type A and B blood But before it can be used in clinical settings the enzyme used would need to remove all of the antigens The immune system is highly sensitive to blood groups and even small amounts of residual antigens could trigger an immune response The concept is not new but until now we needed so much of the enzyme to make it work that it was impractical says Steve Withers a professor in the Department of Chemistry Now I m confident that we can take this a whole lot further The study was published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society and was supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and Canadian Blood Services BACKGROUND Blood types The defining difference between A B and O blood types is the presence of slightly different sugar structures on the outside of the red blood cells of each type Type

  • Ontario Medical Association - Health care system in crisis, says OMA President
    Health Care said Dr Tandan The problem is that plan is driven by short sighted responses to fiscal concerns instead of sustainable responses to real health care issues Not only are doctors being given a reason to leave the province but they also have a place to go said Dr Tandan with the United States projected to be short as many as 90 000 physicians over the next decade Instead of Ontario retaining and attracting new doctors it is chasing them away at a time when our population is growing and aging and therefore needs more care Dr Jenny Clement and her husband Greig Reekie have a family medicine clinic they run together in a neighbourhood in west Toronto that is experiencing exponential growth She is part of a Family Health Organization that receives a constant stream of phone calls and people walking in to the office in search of a family doctor We have to be able to expand to meet the needs of our community and because of the government s draconian cuts to health care and primary care in particular we won t be able to add new doctors to our FHO said Dr Clement That means patients who should have been able to be cared for by a family doctor will have to rely on walk in clinics and emergency room visits which end up costing more money and don t provide comprehensive primary care Those doctors Dr Clement would like to add to her team would also contribute to the local economy Dr Tandan reminded everyone of the importance of a vibrant and sustainable health care system to a healthy economy A highly functioning and vibrant health care system where better care is being provided and patients are healthier helps attract jobs and investment he

  • Montreal Economic Institute - A greater role for pharmacists to reduce health care wait times: The reform does not go far enough
    renewal or adjustment of a prescription the substitution of a drug in case of shortage and the prescription of drugs for certain minor ailments These services are still not offered due to the stalled negotiations between the different parties regarding their remuneration According to economist Yanick Labrie the author of the study regardless of the outcome of the ongoing negotiations the reform is insufficient and could fail to achieve its main goal of improving patients access to front line care It s clear that the government s decision not to remunerate some of the newly authorized professional services and to forbid pharmacists from charging a fee for these services runs the risk of discouraging pharmacists from providing them Other provinces and countries have gone much further and have been much more ambitious in turning to pharmacists for help within their health care systems with positive results The study reports that in the vast majority of other Canadian provinces pharmacists are not only authorized to prescribe drugs for the treatment of minor conditions and to renew prescriptions but can also offer medication review and management services and set up vaccination clinics which are covered by the public plan In Ontario Alberta and Saskatchewan for example where such services have already existed for a number of years studies have found a very high level of satisfaction among the clientele both in terms of improved health conditions and in terms of the quality of services received from pharmacists Among health professionals pharmacists are the most accessible to the population The scientific literature leaves little doubt about the benefits of expanding their role within the health care system Entrusting pharmacists with additional responsibilities is likely to greatly improve patient access to care and lead to savings as well which the public system desperately needs
