Diagnostic Skin Scanner Observ Offers Early Detection

A recent study published in Allure magazine reveals that scientists now know that skin cancer is specifically caused by mutated melanocyte skin cells — clinical diagnostic devices like Observ could potentially be the key to early detection and treatment. Learn more at www.observ-diagnostic.com

Penticton, Canada - October 20, 2017 /PressCable/ —

According to a new study in Allure magazine, scientists have pinpointed one of the specific identifiers of skin cancer – an abundance of melanocytes in the skin, activated by dangerous ultraviolet light rays emitted by the sun. The activation of melanocytes by the sun’s UV rays causes the melanin in the skin to mutate, which gives sunbathers the tan they so desire, however, it’s not without potentially harmful effects. Scientists have recently discovered that this mutation is what causes skin cells to be susceptible to the development of a tumour, so the bottom line is that sun-damaged skin is far more susceptible to malignant melanoma than healthy, SPF-treated skin.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way for people to tell whether sun damage is lurking below the surface of the skin, because in most cases, damaged skin looks normal from the outside. Rather, it is the cellular damage that appears underneath the dermis that reveals the damage, but there are few ways in which the everyday sunbather can know whether they are at a greater risk.

Enter the Observ Diagnostic device.

Observ is a revolutionary portable, diagnostic skin scanner that uses trueUV nonharmful ultraviolet rays to see beyond the surface of the skin. This harmless, diluted version of UV rays allows clinicians to peer beneath the dermis and reveal underlying damage. Then, this damage can be visually demonstrated to clients via digital representation in a convenient app. Finally, this imaging can be used to map clients’ progress, tracking the results of clinical treatment from session to session.

Coupled with these new scientific findings about the potential cellular predisposition for skin cancer, the Observ technology could be the first point of detection for serious melanoma. And as everybody knows, when it comes to skin cancers and other dangerous underlying conditions, early detection is key for effective treatment.

China says US swinging 'big stick' of unfair trade tactics

Jun 21, 2018

BEIJING — China on Thursday accused the United States of using bullying tactics and blackmail in threatening to impose tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imports, ramping up criticism that the measures levied in the name of balancing trade would harm both countries' companies and the world economy. Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng said the U.S. was damaging the global trading order and that its methods would harm its own business interests as well as those of trading partners.

Hyundai Motor, Audi join hands for fuel cell technology

Jun 21, 2018

SEOUL, South Korea — Hyundai Motor Group said Wednesday it signed an agreement with Audi AG to jointly develop electronics vehicles powered by fuel cell. Under the multi-year agreement, Hyundai's affiliates including Kia and Audi's parent company Volkswagen AG will share components, supply chains and patent licensing. The duration of the partnership wasn't disclosed. Hyundai, the world's fifth-largest automaker, began to mass produce fuel cell vehicles in 2013. But in South Korea and elsewhere, wider adoption of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles has been slow largely due to a dearth of refueling stations. South Korea's government plans to add more hydrogen...

World Cup games to air on free TV amid problems in Australia

Jun 21, 2018

SYDNEY — Rather than risk further outrage from football fans, rights holders in Australia have agreed to keep sharing World Cup matches with free-to-air TV until the end of the group stage. Telecommunications company Optus bought the broadcast rights for most World Cup games in Russia but technical issues with the live streaming in Australia caused a major backlash from subscription buyers — to the point where the prime minister had to intervene. The SBS network, which retained the broadcasting rights for Australia's games and the World Cup final under a sharing agreement with Optus for the 2018 tournament, initially...

Survey: Companies in China feel pressure to give up tech

Jun 21, 2018

BEIJING — One in five foreign companies in China feels compelled to hand over technology for market access, a business group said Wednesday, highlighting a key irritant in an escalating U.S.-Chinese trade dispute. The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China's report follows President Donald Trump's order for tariffs on additional Chinese goods in response to complaints Beijing steals or pressures companies to hand over technology. Out of 532 European companies that responded to a survey, 19 percent "felt compelled to transfer technology in exchange for market access" despite Chinese assurances that it isn't required, the chamber said. "China has...

Global stocks tumble after new Trump tariff threat
