According to The Journal of the American Medical Association, 40 percent of people who live a long life rate as a learning process to be more wise and satisfied with their lives. Quoting the Real Simple page, Tuesday (1/8/2017), following good habits made by people who live elderly.

1. Do not overeat

For that, it is advisable to maintain sleep patterns enough time to avoid insomnia that can aggravate your aging process.

Students of Airlangga University Successfully Create Artificial Blood Vessels

Five students of Teknobiomedik Science and Technology Faculty of Airlangga University Surabaya, East Java, managed to make artificial blood vessels (synthesis) biodegradable for cases of atherosclerosis. Five of these students are Iffa Aulia Fiqrianti, Claudia Yolanda Savira, Muhammad Abdul Manaf, Renata Bella Fitria, and Nadia Rifqi Cahyani.

Atherosclerosis is a thickening or narrowing of the arteries due to the buildup of plaque in the artery walls. This occurs when the cell layer on the inner wall of the artery, which is in charge of maintaining the smooth flow of blood, thickens and hardens to inhibit blood flow.

The findings of the five Unair students could be a much needed implant of atherosclerotic patients. Narrowing of blood vessels can lead to various fatal diseases, such as stroke, angina, and coronary heart disease.

Citing the Unair News page, Tuesday (1 // 8/2017), WHO reported, the disease of blood vessels and heart disease is not infectious with the highest mortality in the world, reaching 46 percent. In Indonesia, this disease causes 37 percent of deaths from total non-infectious disease deaths.

To treat atherosclerosis, vascular bypass surgery is usually performed using graft (live tissue grafted) blood vessels. Graft from donors or animals is also beginning to be abandoned because it can lead to rejection reactions from the patient’s body.

Another option is to use the graft from the patient’s own body. However this has a quality problem, because the patient has experienced vascular disease.

This condition makes patients need artificial graft (synthesis) is safe for the patient’s body, said Iffa Aulia Fiqrianti, chairman of the innovation team.

“We try to make blood vessels from poly L. lactic acid (PLLA), chitosan, and collagen.This PLLA is safe for the body, because it will decompose into lactic acid that can be absorbed by the body.The combination of chitosan and collagen can help cell attachment, so in the future When the graft decomposes and will be replaced by the patient’s own body cells, “said Iffa.

Previously there was already a commercial synthesis graft made of dacron. However, according to Iffa, the graft of the dacron is susceptible to calcification (hardening or calcification).

Iffa expects, the blood vessels synthesis of his team’s findings later can help improve the quality of life of patients vascular bypass surgery.

The clinical stage of the findings is long, but promising. The results of cytotoxicity test show that artificial blood vessels are not toxic, so it is safe to use in the body.

Previously, this study was prepared in a proposal entitled “Study In Vivo Vascular Graft Hollow Fiber PLLA Coating Chitosan-Collagen Cardiovascular Disease Solution Due to Atherosclerosis”. This proposal has passed Dikti and obtained research grant in PKM program Kemenristekdikti year 2016-2017.

Parents Need to Know 3 Things Before Using the Car Seat for Kids

Car seat or car seat special child, it is designed for children safe and comfortable while driving. Unfortunately, not all parents really understand the use of this special chair.

Here are the important things to consider before using a child’s car seat. Especially for parents of new children, based on the exposure of pediatric professors at Oregon Health & Science University and Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPS), Ben Hoffman, MD, quoted from Real Simple, Tuesday (1/8/2017).

1. As many as 95 percent of parents directly put a newborn baby in the car seat

In a study published in Pediatrics, Hoffman found that 95 percent of parents occupy their newborns when they return home from the hospital. Plus, improperly installing causes a fatal error.

“The biggest mistake is to let the straps get too loose, another big mistake is to let the chest clip unlocked or put it too low,” Hoffman said.

2. Do not use a used child’s car seat

You should know the history of the use of a child’s car seat. According to Hoffman, used child car seats, especially seats that have been accidents in the car, should not be used again because of its function has been reduced.

3. Replaced once every six years

The limit of car seat usage is six years. Hoffman suggests, if more than that, you should replace it.

“You should be able to find the date on the sticker on the chair and make sure from time to time the material including the seat in the seat is still feasible, safe, and comfortable to use,” he said.

Immunization Protects Children from 9 Dangerous Diseases

On Tuesday (01/08/2017) President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) launched a new immunization type called Measles Rubella immunization (MR). The presence of this immunization makes a total of nine dangerous diseases that can be prevented in children in Indonesia.

Nine dangerous diseases that can be prevented through immunization program in Indonesia are tuberculosis, measles, diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, polio, hepatitis B, hemofilus influenzae, and rubella.

“God willing, starting today we will give protection to one more disease, that is rubella, so children will be protected from nine diseases,” said Jokowi when declaring immunization MR at MTsN 10, Ngaglik, Yogyakarta.

Children need not be afraid of getting lots of shots. Although the number of diseases that are protected more and more, said Jokowi, the number of injections will not increase thanks to the combination of vaccines, such as quoting the Ministry of Health’s release on Tuesday (1/8/2017).

Jokowi also revealed the success of Indonesia free from smallpox, polio, and tetanus. With this vaccine, the problem of measles and rubella can gradually disappear, and congenital defects in infants due to rubella no longer exists. Thus, we in 2020 successfully achieve elimination of measles and rubella control.

In order to realize the target, Jokowi asked the community to support immunization of MR. One of them is by supporting the children get immunization of MR.

“I call for all Indonesian children across the country to be brought to the nearest Immunization Service Station to get MR immunization.” With MR immunization we create a healthy, qualified, productive and competitive Indonesian nation, “Jokowi concluded.

Unair Students Find Koyo to Help Treat Breast Cancer

During this time doxorubicin is used as one of the drugs for chemotherapy of breast cancer patients through intravenous injection – the administration of drugs through the veins. This is because it makes the drug work fast.

But the way it causes necrosis and bleeding (ulceration) due to injection, as well as side effects such as allergies that take time to handle. However, there is a way that patients do not experience side effects.

There are innovations in the form of patches that contain doxorubicin and can be affixed to the skin of the breast. As written from the page of the University of Airlangga (UNAIR), Tuesday (1/8/2017), the performance of Patch Doxorubicin when affixed, conducting electric current (iontoforesis) will enter into tissue affected by breast cancer.

Ayu Tarantika Indreswari, team leader of the UNAIR Pharmacy Faculty explained the advantages of the Doxorubicin Patch. This patch is very easy to use and does not hurt the patient. The target directly leads to breast cancer tissue. If there are signs of allergies, then patches can be removed from the skin.

This research was conducted by students of Faculty of Pharmacy UNAIR who joined in Student Creativity Program of Eksakta (PKMPE), ie Ayu Tarantika Indreswari, Vita Fitria, Galuh Damar, Nurul Azizah, and Beatrice.

The koyo they created earned the award as one of the best ideas of ISPE (International Society Pharmaceutical Engineering) – a professional forum from Pharmaceutical Industry, held last May in Jakarta.

“We hope this research does not stop just research. But in the future it can be really developed and produced on an industrial scale so that the pharmaceutical industry in Indonesia can lead the innovation of cancer drugs, especially cure-based breast cancer drug, “concluded Ayu.
