* While there are diseases in the world of ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' (some very nasty), the common cold has been eliminated to the point that it is almost used as a [[WeaponOfMassDestruction biological weapon]]. Also, rejuvination treatments are a thing. Dredd himself is actually a very old man, but he still looks like a well-kept middle-aged one.

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': Tagon's Toughs start off being able to recover from pretty much most injuries, from loss of limb to loss of ''body'' (usually leaving just a "head in a jar"); the joke is usually whether or not they want to argue with [[ObstructiveBureaucrat the HMO]] over just getting a prosthetic, or an actual replacement 'part' and having to pay higher insurance rates as a result. [[spoiler:Later story developments, such as RED-RIO, RedHack, and the Laz-R-Us protocols, allow them to even recover from being in a ship that is shot out from underneath them]].

* In ''Literature/StarCarrier'', the vast majority of humanity has nanotech implants, one function of which is monitoring the person's health and resolving any problems, including combating infections. In fact, doctors regularly upload patches to the system of any newly discovered pathogens, similar to how people update their antivirus software. It's gotten to the point where people habitually walk around naked, using their personal holo-emitters to generate the image of whatever clothing they like (including military uniforms). Presumably, any issues with leakage and periods are dealt with using the implants. This is why it's such a shock when people aboard the ''America'' suddenly start to fall ill. The ship's doc determines that it appears to be a previously-unknown STD of some kind, which the implants have yet to figure out how to stop. And given that this is a FreeLoveFuture, it spreads rapidly throughout the ship.

However, on the space colonies in the asteroid belt there are already people with debilitating physical and mental conditions due to things like low-oxygen environments. There are also signs of evolution, with some people being born with more fragile bones due to low gravity, meaning that they can't really survive on Earth anymore.
