Patients understanding about cancer means "death" and most likely need to hide the diagnoses to them.. "It 's very unpleasant to tell the patient that they have a terminal illness. One can understand why most doctors and nurses neglect this duty" (Varga,1980). Few things need to consider when telling to patients and patients family with regards to their prognosis like patients reactions or emotions and even financial resource. Health care professional are expected to give the detailed information to their client whether it is desirable or undesirable news. But on the other hand, they need consider whether telling truth would help or make situations more worst.
“Insertion of IPTEN gene in Cowdin Syndrome’s patients’’ (A step towards Breast Cancer Control) Synopsis Submitted to: DR. HAMID MANZOOR Submitted by: Anum Jaweria BS-BT-22 BS Biotechnology 7th Semester 2011-2015 INSTITUTE OF MOLECULAR BIOLOGY AND BIOTECHNOLOGY BAHAUDDIN ZAKARIYA UNIVERSITY MULTAN, PAKISTAN Introduction: Cowdin syndrome is a autosomal inherited disease. It has the high risk of breast, endometrial, thyroid and colon, skin cancers. CS first reported in 1963 by Salem and Steck. CS leads to breast cancer. It is approx.
(Beauchard,n.d. ;2) claimed that “human cloning is a cure for cancer through cloning and other forms of genetic research, scientists are ready to learn all kinds of important information about the genetic makeup of cancer and we may have the way to cure the cancer soon”. Besides that, according to Beauchard(n.d.), human cloning is said to supply a limitless source of organ donors. This could finally be a long lasting way to the ever growing demand for organ donors. “Millions of Americans suffer from a terrible neurological disorder known as Parkinson disease.
Throughout the years, there have been immense scientific discoveries made which lead to advancements in Gene Technology. Examples include the advancements that were made in stem cell research. It is considered a controversial topic that causes intense debates even today among different groups and communities. In my opinion, even though stem cell research has lots of advantages including curing incurable diseases and helping infertile men and woman overcome their problems as a student I think it opposes morals and ethics as well as having disadvantages and risks. To begin with, stem cells can be defined as undifferentiated cells which then become dissimilar and develop into more specialized cells.
This therapy changes the outcome of a child who would have likely had to live the rest of their life with a life-threatening disability. Genome editing is the road that humans can take towards the interest of preventing and treating diseases. It’s being explored in research in single gene disorders such as cystic fibrosis, hemophilia, and sickle cell disease. It’s also likely that with further research, treatment and prevention of more complex diseases such as cancer, heart disease, mental illnesses, and HIV can be treated (“What Are Genome Editing and CRISPR-Cas9”). Helping babies live longer and fuller lives is for the greater good of our society, it will reduce suffering overall which is the goal of
Below are some important facts which could actually save your life. 1. Having an unhealthy lifestyle have affected so many people by becoming inflicted with various medical conditions. And sometimes, it gets worse to the point that a blood transfusion may be necessary. Not being able to know exactly your blood type in times like this would be delaying the possibility of helping you get cured of your disease.
Reduction of uncertainty Both parents and children may be anxious about their uncertain future. Genetic testing, even if confirming the presence of disease, may remove the uncertainty and allow parents the opportunity to confront the issues directly. When test results are favorable, psychological benefits may accrue to both parents and children. 2. Alteration of self-image Children with genetic diseases may suffer a loss of self-esteem during a critical period when children's self-identity is developing.
Emotions are also bound to rush. Families become torn between the decision. But after deciding, they also help themselves from the constant pity and feeling sadness from seeing the patient. Emotions influence mental health. “Psychological factors that cause people to think of euthanasia include depression” (BBC- ethics-euthanasia: Ethics…, 2014).
Discrimination against patients by physicians is well known. In recent years, we have seen a rise in physicians rejecting patients of sexual orientation, disabilities, patient's unwillingness to vaccinate, particular race, and religious views. Discrimination against patients is a real issue that needs to be addressed and ended. Most of these rejections are solely dependent of the physician's conscience and beliefs. Despite these beliefs of the physician, patients are left feeling discriminated against and feel unworthy of healthcare.
A skepticism fuelled by several controversial cases, such as the cases of Baby M and Baby Manji3 Although empirical studies on attitudes toward surrogacy are surprisingly scarce and the available evidence local or anecdotal to its nature. The existing studies seem to confirm the skeptical view. The majority of the various samples have negative or agnostic attitudes toward gestational surrogacy. In focusing on surveys on commercial surrogacy, an increase in negative attitudes is reasonable to expect . Among scholars, an equally strong resistance against surrogacy and in particular its commercial version is common.
The controversy over prenatal genetic screening has become a major issue among today’s society. Prenatal genetic screening occurs during the first and second trimester which allows physicians to diagnose the fetus by examining blood or other tissue to detect abnormalities (Sagerdo). Due to the scientific advancements in today’s society, the idea of genetic screening has been taken to the next level in forming the idea of a “super baby”. In the United States alone, between sixty-five to seventy percent of women have serum screening in order to evaluate the status of the developing fetus (Sagerdo). Often, when a disease is detected due to a genetic test many parents opt to have an abortion.
It is later proven that the study of Virology is the cause of scientists advanced experimentation with cancer and expanded their boarders with the topic. Without HeLa cells, half of the human race would have been extinct and scientists research would not be as advanced as it is today. HeLa cells have caused science to be impacted by being able to retain information through research and expand their philosophy on science. The scientific information presented is important to everyday comprehension which benefits the health of the human race. Imagine living in a world where HeLa cells are
