PIO doctor to open application of stem cell research in Nitte
Quote:
MANGALURU: UK-based orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Anand A Shetty will start a clinical application of stem cell research in the city along with Nitte University. This will help in curing cancer and other related ailments.
Quote:
In an exclusive tete-a-tete with TOI, Shetty spoke about his future plans for India especially the coastal city. "I began my research on stem cells around three decades ago when it was still in its very nascent stage. I got into cartilage and bone repair area. The biggest breakthrough was in 2000, where we did the first bone transplant surgery in the UK. To get such facility to India, with help of Nitte University, we set-up a multi crore facility in Deralakatte campus three years ago and a similar lab set-up in Hubballi for Dharmasthala hospital," explained Dr Shetty.

He adds in the second phase his team wants go for cloning. "We want to clone high-milk yielding cow and pig for meat production. To start the process, we want to have clinical application in five years or by 2020 in Mangaluru," he asserted.
Research began on Thalassemia: Research started by A A Shetty on PM's interest, 2

Srinivas University becomes institutional member of ICT Academy
Quote:
Through this membership, the university will be benefitted with faculty development training programs, skill development programs for students, youth initiatives, research and industry-institute interaction. ICT Academy is a not for profit organization.

Srinivas University is also implementing DellEMC Centre of Academic Excellence - data science and big data analytics in their university in association with ICT Academy, which along with DellEMC has designed programs for technical institutions across India to introduce graduating students to data science and big data analytics. This initiative equip the students with required technical skills to complement their chosen fields of study.
Mangaluru & Udupi need enough Centres of Excellences for Data Science to work on various domains in which they want to lead like Health Informatics including Pharmacy Informatics & Ayurinformatics, Marine Informatics, Petroleum/Manufacturing Informatics, Education Informatics, Tourism Informatics, Agriculture Informatics. And institutes like Alva's may be on weather/space informatics as exception but focusing on identified domains is better for avoiding brain drain. If Subsea Data Centre is feasible near Mangalore then it would be great!

Multilevel car parking will be reality soon

Summa: Project will come up in 2.10 acres land with a cost of Rs. 75 crores.



Whether busbay is part of this project. Whether parking place for autorikshaws will be at ground floor? Whether project is financially sustainable enough to survive on collected parking fees? What is the time scheduled to recover investment by collecting parking fees? What about bicycles? Whether people can park and rent bicycles to move across? How many more roads will be identified as walkways so that people can park here and walk around comfortably? What about bicycles? Whether people can park and rent bicycles to move around? Whether bicycle parking place will be created in all places where they want to park them when moving to places?

Mangaluru: Vedamarogya - ancient treasure of knowledge on health at your service

Manipal University to build new super-speciality block at Wenlock

Arivu, early intervention centre for special kids to open on May 13

Bridging healthcare in Mangaluru & GCC countries: hnc Healthcare opens first clinic
Quote:
Knowing that Mangaluru has a potential to grow into a world health destination, hnc Healthcare has launched its first clinic in the heart of the city at Falnir Health Centre. This clinic is designed to cater to the regional population as well as those from other states and foreigners. The doctors of hnc Healthcare will serve not only in India but also in GCC countries like the UAE,Qatar and Oman without affecting their professional practice here. hnc will guide and support doctors to build an international career.
Wenlock Hospital: ‘Get development master plan ready’
Quote:
At the meeting of the Aarogya Raksha Samiti of the Government Wenlock and Government Lady Goschen Hospitals recently, the Deputy Commissioner said the master plan was necessary to align the new buildings coming up on the Wenlock Hospital premises with the existing heritage structure of the 169-year-old hospital.

Manipal University had signed a memorandum of understanding with the State government to build a super-speciality block on the Wenlock Hospital premises and also to undertake restoration and repair works of the old building.

In addition to this, the Wenlock Hospital has proposed to build another new block on the hospital premises at a cost of Rs.15 crore. NABARD has sanctioned Rs.10 crore for this new block whereas the hospital would spend Rs.5 crore on building the new block from its own fund.

Mr. Jagadeesha said these new buildings, including the super-speciality block and a new block, should synchronise with the existing old heritage structure.

The master plan will give an idea on where to utilise the government fund.
New block of Lady Goschen hospital to be functional by Nov
Quote:
Mr. Jagadeesha told The Hindu that bids have been invited for taking up pending works of the new block for which the State government has released Rs.10 crore.

The work includes external electrification, setting up an operation theatre, high-ventilation air conditioning system and building labour theatre.
Stem-cell therapy for cancer comes closer home
Quote:
BENGALURU:Full-fledged treatment for cancer and bone-related ailments using stem-cell within the state could soon be a possibility if a plan of a world renowned surgeon from the state succeeds.

Dr A A Shetty is a highly decorated orthopedic surgeon and professor based in the UK who won the ‘Nobel’ equivalent of surgery called the Hunterian Medal, this year. In his aim to bring about next level cancer and orthopedic treatment, he has already set up two ‘big’ stem cell research labs - one in Dharwad and another in Mangaluru, a few years back at a cost of around 20 to 25 crore. A hospital that will treat stem-related ailments has also been envisaged at a total cost of around Rs 200 to 250 crore.

Setting up the labs is part of a three-step goal. “After setting up the labs, the next step will be producing the stem cells, whether it be for bone ailments, treatment for cervical cancer etc. Then the third step will be the application of these stem cells through our hospital or through tie-ups with other hospitals. I have already received the funding for setting up the hospital,” says Dr Shetty in an interaction with CE in Bengaluru. He is originally from a small village called Asode in Udupi district.

The lab in Dharwad is located at SDM College and is being backed by Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara and will be primarily working on blood cancer and thalassemia treatment. The one in Mangaluru is located at K.S. Hegde Medical Academy (KSHEMA) and is backed by the NITTE group. It will work on cartilage and bone fracture treatments.“The effort is no doubt for profit. We will charge the rich but the poor will be treated for free at our hospital,” he says.

Already, Shetty has recruited a number of top stem cell researchers from the state who are presently abroad. “I have recruited researchers who were doing their postdoc studies in Japan, South Korea. Presently there are four of them working at the two labs,” he says. Shetty ultimately wants to settle in Karnataka and hopes to achieve his goal by 2020. The third stage of his plan also requires expertise in various cutting edge technologies such as robotics, computing and he will also be recruiting people who specialize in these fields.

Cancer Vaccination

Shetty also hopes to make cancer vaccination a possibility. Giving an example of cervical cancer, Shetty says, “Few cancers can be vaccinated. Cervical cancer, one of the most rampant cancers, is one of them. We will use stems derived from iPS cell. In the UK, the vaccine cost 60 pounds. Our aim is to develop it and sell it at a very low cost, as low as Rs 100,” he adds. Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells or iPS Cells are derived from the blood and skiwwn cells and can be reprogrammed to provide an unlimited source of any type of human cell.

Stem cells for Arthritis

In 2013, Shetty devised a minimally invasive procedure to treat arthritis using stem cells. When the cartilage between the bones begin to erode, the bones rub against each other and cause severe pain. Shetty treated a patient suffering from knee arthritis. He drilled a hole into the patient’s knee bone and released stem cells that could grow into the cartilage. In all, the procedure lasted just 30 minutes. Shetty has already done as many as two dozen such procedures in India.

Trauma Center

Shetty also says that he wants to develop and provide integrated trauma services. “If a patient survives the ‘golden hour then he/she can be saved. Majority die in the first hour of trauma. My integrated services will have specialized suits that will help reduce blood loss and will have other know-how. I am negotiating with the International Rotary on this,” he adds. This may be established either in Mangalore or Bangalore.

Dr Vishal Rao, head and neck oncology surgeon at HCG Hospitals says that stem cells research is in the mid-stage of development and has great potential to grow in India. “The IT and BT ministry is already taking great steps by encouraging startups on these lines, starting various schemes,” he says. Vishal also pointed out that a number of private organizations, hospitals and individuals like those like Dr Shetty are also investing in the field.
Hope AA Shetty will set up all these facilities in Mangaluru itself. All in either Kunjathabail Health City or his home district Udupi.

Request all NRI Tuluvas again & again to establish all your startup ventures in Tulunadu itself to save it from ecological disasters threatened on it by real estate lobby of the parched city whether it is illegal sand mining, creating deadsea by establishing desalination plants of huge capacities or turning mother rivers of Tulunadu unjudiciously. Any further increase in population (fixed or floating population) of the parched region will be a warning call for coastal region! In fact if you want to contribute to Tulunadu, your home, then contribute by reducing population of the parched region of Karnataka.

Transportation

BC Road - Addahole fourlane concrete road works launched

Summa: 63 km long, Rs 1,064 crores is cost, to be completed in 2.5 years. L&T is the contractor. Uppinangadi & Kaladka will have flyovers. BC Road will have another bridge across Netravati & Uppinangadi will have another bridge across Kumaradhara.

Rs. 10,000 crores for highway development in DK

Summa: Out of this Rs. 5,500 crores is already utilized. Rs. 1,200 crores is spent on railway projects. Rs. 5,500 crores proposal is submitted for Pradhan Mantri Sinchana Yojana (irrigation project). Rs. 164 crores will be coming for AMRUT project. Mangalore-Addhole NH fourlane will be biggest concrete road project of the country. Rs. 1,000 crores is released for airport road runway expansion project. Rs. 63 lakhs is released for Old port to highway connectivity road under Bharatmala scheme. Efforts are ongoing for 4th plaform to central railway station and Mangalore-Hubbali Mahalakshmi train.

Whether it is Mangaluru MP wrongly claiming that Rs. 1,000 crores for airport runway expansion is already released or reporter reporting wrongly? And I can even not understand Rs. 5,500 crores already spent on highways. Which are those highways? When money was spent?

Mangaluru-Bengaluru Highspeed Highway Construction: Rs. 1.18 lakh crores sanctioned
Proposed New Speed Highway to Reduce Mangaluru-Bengaluru Travel Time to 4 Hours

Whether BC Road - Addahole fourlane concrete road works are part of this project? Will it just be fourlane road costing Rs. 1.18 lakh crores? What is the cost of Shiradighat tunnel? Rs. 10,000 or Rs. 20,000 or 30,000? How many additional flyovers/underpass will be there to make it highspeed?

Turn arterial roads into one-way streets to reduce traffic congestion, suggest MCC corporators

What is more important is how many roads around proposed parking building at Hampankatta old busstop will be converted to walkways.

Alternate road towards Kerala being developed along the Nethravathi: MLA
Quote:
MANGALURU: A project to set up an alternate road along the Nethravathi is underway, Mangaluru city south MLA J R Lobo said. State government has already released Rs 10 crore for the project and the project report is being readied and this road will come up on land abutting the river up to Kannur. When this road is complete, it will provide a by-pass for vehicles coming from Kerala and headed towards Goa without entering the city, reducing traffic gridlocks here.

Interacting with stakeholders at a flat meeting Shasakaru Nimmedege at Car Street, Lobo averred land rates along the proposed Nethravathi by-pass stretch will appreciate, thus helping the land owners. Likewise, under union government's Sagar Mala project, heavy vehicles can reach old port, Bengre, Tannirbhavi via New Mangalore Port and proceed towards the Nethravathi Bridge from the old port. This road will connect old port with New Mangalore Port, he said.

If this project is completed, it will obviate the need for construction of a hanging bridge proposed to connect Bolur to Bengre, Lobo said adding it will also accentuate the need for constructing a permanent roads to both places. The timely and early completion of this infrastructure will also give a much needed fillip to tourism in the area, Lobo said, adding it is imperative for any city to give top priority to fast tracking infrastructure projects if it wishes to develop.

Referring to other initiative taken by the government through Mescom, Lobo said the electricity supply company is now experimenting with laying underground cables and one such project has been implemented from Kankanady to A B Shetty Circle along the road. If this project succeeds, it will pave the way for city to be free from sight of dangling power cables that come across as an eyesore, Lobo said, adding Mescom had taken up the initiative despite the cost involved.
We now know that NH-75 will be a highspeed highway without need for bypass. Similarly I believe when Bharatmala (or Sagarmala) is implemented fully even NH-66 will be a highspeed highway. As I said earlier calling a part of Mangala Corniche (or by linking with Taneerbhavi road with it) as bypass has no permanent meaning and I also doubt anybody is going to use it as bypass any time. It will be just another road boosting tourism!

Underground cabling not only will pave the way for city to be free from sight of dangling power cables that come across as an eyesore but also increase beauty of the city by saving greenery which is axed regularly by MESCOM. But as I said earlier should use GIS tools to trace all underground facilities. Whether Kankanady - AB Shetty circle will only have underground cables or will also be Tender SURE? The way they are constructing footpath on MG Road I doubt it will be Tender SURE any time in the near future.

Rs 100-crore project for MIA building expansion

Mangalore Junction will be upgraded soon

‘Will consider demand for train between Hubballi & Mangaluru’

Mercator Lttd awarded contract by New Mangalore Port Trust

Tragedy is Mangalore Port's railway income is used for other purposes rather than for improving the port's railway connectivity with the hinterland and hence to the port's further development. NMPT is the most unlucky port in India in this regard. I will be happy if Railway ministry at least half of income through the port is spent for improving the port's hinterland railway connectivity.
