Medicine of the future: organ cloning and transplantation, clinics in orbit, nanorobots, symbiont bacteria.

medicine of the future

Life span

According to Andrei Sychev, the average life expectancy of a person will exceed 130-150 years (however, according to the famous Russian gerontologist Vladimir Khavinson, human life can hardly cross the line of 110-120 years). This will be facilitated by improved nutritional quality and living standards, as well as medical technology.

A cure for AIDS, diabetes and Alzhemer's disease

Despite the pessimistic forecasts of many experts who believe that there is no cure for AIDS, in fact, Andrei Sychev believes in the best. Especially in this matter, the doctor relies on the development of molecular chemistry, which, in his opinion, will help to find a cure for these diseases.

By the way, the cure for HIV, on the contrary, has already been invented: it is a modern antiretroviral therapy that allows sick people to live with the disease for many years (up to 70 years, and on average - 30-40 years from the moment of diagnosis). But this is only supportive therapy; there is still no drug that would end the disease once and for all. The reason for this is the incredibly fast mutation of the virus, which has time to adapt to any drug.

Organ cloning and transplantation

But this forecast, probably, could already become a reality, if not for government bans. Nevertheless, the futurist hopes that the development of cloning technologies will nevertheless make it possible to grow "spare" organs and lost tissues.

Select the gender of the child

Another not "godly" topic is the choice of the sex and even the appearance of the unborn child. And yet the doctor believes that the development of genetics will allow doing this in the future (unless, of course, legal prohibitions prevent it). Sychev is even convinced that parents will be able to choose the inclinations of the unborn child, his talents and abilities. In our opinion, this, of course, is doubtful, since the nature of talent is still covered with a thick darkness of mystery - both for scientists and for gifted people themselves. But about the rest - who knows?

Clinics in orbit

Those, according to Andrey Sychev, will be needed for the treatment of the musculoskeletal system, heart and vascular diseases. Why in orbit? In zero gravity conditions, according to the doctor, such operations will be faster and more efficient. True, Sychev does not mention the cost of such a procedure, adding also that it will be possible to receive ultra-pure drugs in orbit.

Symbiont bacteria

The development of genetic engineering will contribute to the creation of these creatures. Symbionts will live in the human body and, if necessary, produce and release the necessary hormones, pain relievers, antibiotics and other drugs into the host's blood.

Nanorobots

Alternative to live bacteria. These tiny devices, settling in human blood, will destroy cancer cells, cleanse blood vessels, heal injuries and generally "repair" our body.

Sensor implantation

Another foreign body in the human body will be a telemetry sensor, which will constantly monitor the health of its owner and promptly give signals in case of problems. And not to himself, but to the nearest hospital.

Robot doctors

Such, according to Andrey Sychev, should appear in every home. In addition to household chores, robots will be able to perform simple medical manipulations, for example, a relaxing massage or an injection.

Of course, one cannot count on one hundred percent accuracy of such forecasts.But did anyone in 1915 think that people would be able to exchange instant messages around the world using millions of gigabytes of information?
