Do you wonder why medical writings are very informative, methodical, and enjoyable to read? Medical writing has seen an evolution over the years to reach its high standard of perfection. There are three main criteria you need to fulfill to produce good writing on any medical topic: a subject worth writing on, an understanding of the structure of a peer reviewed article, and an acquaintance of good writing skills.
Your subject should be worth pursuing and must have existing literature covering it. As an author it is important to read previous publications. This will help you come up with new and unique content for your subject. Here are a few interesting medical topics for research you can explore:
1. Use of stem cell technology for cancer treatment
A stem cell transplant is a procedure that reinstates blood cells that have been destroyed by heavy doses of radiotherapy and chemotherapy used to treat certain cancers. There are three types of stem cell transplants;
Stem cell transplants could work against cancer directly in multiple myeloma and certain types of leukemia. In other cases, however, the procedure does not work against cancer directly but reproduces stem cells lost during treatment.
2.Symptoms of heart attacks in women
A heart attack is caused by a disruption of blood flow to the heart. Women are less likely to survive their first heart attack than men. Here are a few symptoms of a heart attack in women; chest pain, shortness of breath, upper body pain (jaw, neck, upper back, etc.), and feeling weak. It’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible if you have a combination of any of these symptoms.
3.Obesity as a medical and social problem
Obesity is a worldwide epidemic growing to be one of the leading causes of death. It is widely classified according to the body mass index (BMI) of an adult. Obesity can is influenced by genes, diet, physical activity/inactivity, medication use, etc. Social factors affecting obesity include food marketing and promotion, government subsidies in high-fat foods, and nutrition education.
4.Is it possible to cure diabetes?
There are two types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs from cellular problems of the pancreas hence the inability to produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes comes from the body not producing enough insulin. Type 2 diabetes is more common.
To find a cure for type 1 diabetes scientists need to find a way to disrupt the immune system. This will stop the immune system from attacking the beta cells that produce insulin. There is the possibility of putting Type 2 diabetes in remission through a weight management study undergoing in the UK. Remission is when blood glucose levels remain in the normal range.
5.Bio-printing as the future of organ transplants
Bioprinting heavily relies on 3D printing. The Biomaterial is deposited into a 3D printer and printed layer by layer. Requisite cells are harvested from the patient’s body and refined into bio-ink. Incase taking cells from a patient is impossible, adult stems can be used. The cells are held together by collagen to preserve and grow them into the right shape.
Printing body parts will help in decreasing organ transplant constraints. This could be either reducing backlog in waiting for an organ or the immune system of a recipient rejecting a new organ. Some of the breakthroughs made are in printing body parts are in; bones, the heart, corneas, the lungs, and the skin.
All of the above research topics rely on lab reports for individual illness diagnosis and treatment. Continuous monitoring, evaluation, and assessment by medical practitioners are common in all the above topics. As such engaging medical writing, it is important to remember all the spheres within your chosen research topic.
