Un algorithme pour prédire le diagnostic de maladies rares

Pour les ataxies cérébelleuses autosomiques récessives, cet outil se révèle plus performant que des experts humains.
Distinguer les cancers ­cutanés de tumeurs ­bénignes, dépister une rétinopathie diabétique, proposer une stratégie thérapeutique dans un cas complexe de cancer ou de maladie chronique… Voilà ce que des systèmes d’intelligence artificielle (IA) peuvent déjà faire en médecine, ou qu’ils feront demain. Dans ce même ­esprit d’aide au diagnostic et à la décision, le professeur Mathieu Anheim, neurologue au CHU de Strasbourg, et son équipe ont conçu et validé un algorithme pour des maladies rares du ­système nerveux : les ataxies ­cérébelleuses autosomiques récessives (ACAR)...

Stimulation of Brain’s Reward System Leads to Reduction in Cancer Tumors

Scientists at Technion – Israel Institute of Technology have come up with a surprising way of fighting tumors and in the process showed that our brains have a role in preventing the growth of cancers. The researchers, who reported their findings in journal Nature Communications , artificially stimulated the reward system of mice stricken with cancer. What the investigators showed is that over time, the mice that received stimulation had significantly smaller tumors than control mice that were not administered the therapy. The team believes that their stimulation affected the nervous system so...
