A Pilot Scheme - Specimen Collection of Health Management Center

2014-08-27 03:39:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Biomedical and biotechnology industry is internationally regarded as the most brilliant star performer of the future. The development of biomedical depends on a high quality academic research environment, while innovation and uniqueness should be emphasized for the development of biotechnology industry. The successful development of biotechnology industry will be impossible if the development is not based on extensive and in-depth research work and verification acquired from clinical implementation. Based on these concepts, the resources of research materials, especial of human being, are going to be essential. Thus, a programmable and systematic collection of clinical specimen would become one of the potential properties in hospital. This is a two-year pilot scheme, and was designed to start collecting specimen from “Health Management Center” in NTUH. This pilot scheme will address important issues of manpower, finances, and data merging for evaluation of biotechnological related specimen collection, such as cell or tissue bank, in the future.

There are 12471 persons who take the health examination in Health Management Center during 2004 Mar -2005 Dec. Subjects agree to be invovled in the study asre assigned as "respondent". For those who disgree to be involved in the study are assigned as "non-respondent". There are 6261 respondents and 6210 non-respondents in this study. 63% of respondents and 51% of non-respondents are males. There is a lower distribution in smoking, history of hypertension, and history of hyperlipidemia in respondents than in non-respondents. Respondents have lower level of triglyceride, HDL, LDL in blood than non-respondents do.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.

Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.

Process of evaluating the health of a patient and determining if they are healthy enough for surgery.

Dietary patterns which have been found to be important in reducing disease risk.
