For What?

  • Use as a signature - The Ancient Babylonian Civilization.

29. Identification of the criminals -Afterthe 19th century 32nd batch - Faculty Of Medicine, Uni. of Ruhuna
30. Why?
The patterns which are made by epidermal ridges are unique from person to person.
32nd batch - Faculty Of Medicine, Uni. of Ruhuna
31. Evolution
Traditional ink fingerprints typically contain rolled and flat prints
Today, digital scanners capture an image of the fingerprint. To create a digital fingerprint, a person places his or her finger on an optical or silicon reader surface and holds it there for a few seconds. The reader converts the information from the scan into digital data patterns. The computer then maps points on the fingerprints and uses those points to search for similar patterns in the database.

32. New technique
Finger print reveals NOT ONLY YOUR IDENTITY,If you have,

  • history of illegal drug abuse.

41. Diabetes conditions 42. Heart disease conditionsThere are specific chemicals produced in these conditions &they also secretedin sweat and sebum.
32nd batch - Faculty Of Medicine, Uni. of Ruhuna
43. New Gene Therapy to Reverse Heart Failure
The therapy works by raising diminished levels of the protein S100A1, a calcium-sensing protein in the diseased heart muscle cell, to normal.
Previous research suggests this will prevent against heart failure development, particularly in people who have had a heart attack
32nd batch - Faculty Of Medicine, Uni. of Ruhuna
44. profile of S100A1 is a unique one as it targets and reverses the underlying causes of heart failure:

  • deterioration of contractile performance

45. electrical instability 46. energy deprivation.32nd batch - Faculty Of Medicine, Uni. of Ruhuna
47. Gene therapy reversesParkinsons symptoms
In patients with Parkinson's disease, their brains get overactive after losing the normal supply of a chemical called GABA.
Scientists have developed a novel gene therapy called NLX-P101.
32nd batch - Faculty Of Medicine, Uni. of Ruhuna
48. For patients who got the gene therapy, doctors drilled a hole into their brains while they were still awake.
Doctors then slipped in a virus engineered to bring in billions of copies of a gene to help the brain pump out more GABA.
32nd batch - Faculty Of Medicine, Uni. of Ruhuna
49. Patients who received NLX-P101 showed a significant reduction in the motor symptoms of Parkinsons, including
tremor
rigidity
difficulty initiating movement
