In vitro diagnostics, or IVDs, are tests on samples such as human blood, urine and tissue to look for diseases and infection or to help diagnose a medical condition. They are used in diabetes, cancer, cardiology, HIV/Aids, autoimmune diseases,drug testing, infectious diseases and more. As healthcare needs are continually growing, the number of samples to test is rapidly increasing. With growing demand for clean testing, labs are looking to automation to increase throughput, improve quality and solve handling problems quickly. Many smaller laboratories that still perform IVD manually are also trying to take this step towards automation, but find that existing high-throughput units are too costly. When biotech company Fujirebio Europe joined with Belgium’s Verhaert, involved in Europe’s space programmes for many years, the answer was found. The unit developed by Verhaert for the Biolab research facility in Europe’s Columbus laboratory on the International Space Station turned out to provide a solution for low-throughput IVD. It is now improving the diagnosis of infectious diseases and cancers here on Earth.

Geographic information systems (GIS) technology makes it feasible for example to track the HIV epidemic in defined areas. Description In support of local health centres and humanitarian organisations, precise local mapping of AIDS cases, HIV infection and related risk factors can: • provide demographic and environmental perspectives on the current status of the epidemic, • portray historical and long-term trends, • evaluate the delivery and impact of prevention and care services, • test hypotheses on social, political and environmental determinates of transmission, • target outreach efforts to locations where transmission is likely to be highest. GISA will: • Support local health centres and work towards improved information management related to the treatment of patients, reporting with up-to-date information from the geo-spatial context • Link to ongoing initiatives as well as national and local authorities Consortium In this project ESA, World Health Organization (WHO), Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) were involved.

As much as 20% of the population in Western societies suffers from it. Now, microgravity research has uncovered a novel therapy to fight exaggerated immune responses. Current medications have strong side effects and are not always effective. There is a rise in hay fever, food allergies, asthmatic and inflammatory bowel diseases. Stopping genes that activate our immune system would help people suffering from autoimmune diseases. This research added to the impetus of clinical testing of an experimental treatment using JNK inhibitors to combat autoimmune diseases. The pharmaceutical industry could use kinase inhibitors to fight specific illnesses and market tailored antibodies. Arthritis or Crohn’s disease are just two examples that are a heavy toll on society. In Europe alone, 50 000 patients are chronically ill from Crohn’s disease. These experiments also provide a plausible explanation for the effects of spaceflight on humans, and will help strengthen astronauts’ health on long space journeys.

Globally, the disease can be found in at least 80 countries, making it an issue of worldwide significance. If it is not diagnosed and treated promptly, LB can lead to a serious chronic, debilitating disease. LB is caused by a bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, which is carried by ticks. Over the last ten years the number of cases reported in Scotland has increased more than ten-fold. Currently there is little accurate information available about the epidemiology of the disease and locations of “hot spots” of transmission, making it difficult for people to know how to reduce their risk of infection. LymeMAP is an LB identification, mapping and risk management system that includes risk maps, advice and information, incorporated within a smartphone app and web portal. This health information and management tool responds to the needs of health care professionals, outdoor workers, resident populations and tourists by providing stakeholders with a better understanding of the factors affecting tick distribution and LB risk, as well as providing information about appropriate action to take when bitten by a tick. LymeMAP combines data (including EO satellite data, GPS data, Lyme data from Scottish National Lyme Borreliosis Testing Lab, data from General Practitioners, and from end-users) using spatial modelling techniques to produce maps of Lyme risk and vector distributions. Users are also able to report locations of ticks and bites to the central database.

One of its main objectives is to limit risks of medical emergency occurring during long duration spaceflights. Ultrasound is one of the most interesting imaging techniques for tele-medicine in space. It indeed provides medical experts with real-time access to a patient’s anatomical and functional information while being rather straight forward in its implementation and use. Most importantly, ultrasound is harmless and non-invasive. In addition, it has become compact and lightweight compared to other medical imaging systems. This is an important advantage in the spaceflight context. As such, ultrasound is also often used in space for scientific experiments that aim to investigate the impact of microgravity on the human body. With scientific support from ESA and financial support from both ESA and the French Space agency (CNES), the France-based company developed MELODY, a technology, building on fifteen years of space research, allowing specialists to perform tele-echography through a computer interface. An assistant simply needs to hold the device against the patient, and it is to the expert to move the probe with the help of a joystick from his/her own location (see picture above).

In fact, control of core body temperature is a prerequisite for ensuring astronauts’ mental and physical well-being. Traditional approaches to monitor deep body temperature such as rectal temperature, are too invasive and unsafe for long-duration core body temperatures monitoring on space stations. About a decade ago, as a result of their research supported both by DLR and ESA, professor Hanns-Christian Gunga of the Centre of Space Medicine of Charité University Hospital in Berlin and his science team developed together with the company Draegerwerk in Lübeck, a non-invasive double sensor. The device was tested on astronauts during their stay on the space station and revealed itself as accurate as invasive methods.

The ESA-backed VECMAP service based on EO and satellite navigation assists public health agencies and regional mosquito controllers in predicting vector-related health risks and in reducing the spread of diseases. Source: World Mosquito Program Mosquito-borne diseases such as Malaria, Chikungunya, Dengue and West Nile fever are a persistent public health concern in many European countries. VECMAP is a service assisting national public health agencies and regional mosquito controllers in predicting vector-related health risks and in reducing spread of disease. It enhances and simplifies traditional distribution modelling, field and laboratory work with the help of satellite navigation and Earth observation. The VECMAP Demonstration Project is the result of a feasibility study which was successfully concluded in 2011. The prototype developed by the feasibility study is the basis of the VECMAP service platform being developed and evaluated by the demonstration project. Three major user communities were identified, namely Public Health Users, pest control companies and other commercial users, and academic users. The ARS (Agence Régionale de Santé de Guadeloupe), Guadeloupe (France) is involved in the testing of the new features developed. Producing risk maps is a complex process, involving field sampling of the vectors to provide data needed to calibrate the statistical distribution modelling that delivers the risk maps. The modelling itself needs additional inputs extensively processed and standardised EO imagery. In order to be able to carry out these procedures most users will need them to be available as a user friendly and closely integrated set of utilities and components, supported by extensive technical backstopping from qualified technicians. VECMAP satisfies these needs, and also ensures that the cost effectiveness is optimised.VECMAP will therefore enhance the planning capabilities, and preparedness for vector borne diseases in both mainland EU as in the overseas territories. Space assets are an essential and indispensible element of two major VECMAP system components. Navigation systems provide the means to efficiently locate and travel to the vector field sampling sites to collect the distribution data that calibrates the statistical distribution models. Earth Observation imagery is needed to construct the statistical models that underlie the distribution maps produced. VECMAP's unique benefit is to offer a "One-Stop-Shop" integrating all the tools needed to produce spatial risk maps from sampling to modelling and data processing and archiving, improving cost effectiveness and providing extensive technical support to the Users. VECMAP will allow more stakeholders to directly produce and evaluate the risk posed by disease vectors and their potential spread. It will also allow existing practitioners to be more cost effective, and extend their activities to new areas or at the least maintain them in an era of declining economic resources.
