Fusion of bone marrow cells with nerve cells and helps to restore damaged

Fusion of bone marrow cells with nerve cells and helps to restore damagedBone marrow cells can be connected with special nerve cells that will contribute to the support cells of the brain or the recovery of their damages. These are the conclusions of researchers at the Medical School of Stanford University. This discovery will help to answer the question of how adults form other types of cells, brain, muscle, or liver cells by transformation of bone marrow cells or by merging them to form a single cell with two nuclei? The study shows that for complex brain cells, type Purkinje cells, the fusion is a usual process. Ph.D. Helen Blau and Professor of pharmacology at the Donald E. and Delia B. Читать полностью -->

Again about SLO

Again about SLOThe maximum concentration of C-reactive protein in acute myocardial infarction allow to judge about the risk of heart failure development in the coming year C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of acute inflammation, may be a marker of risk in patients with myocardial infarction (mi). However, until now, has not been studied the relationship of CRP concentration with risk of heart failure (HF) after suffering a heart attack, noted Dr. Paolo Palatini and his colleagues (University of Padua, Italy). They examined 220 patients with THEM, determining the levels of CRP in the first, third and seventh days after admission to the hospital. It turned out that patients with IM and SN (86 people) when all three dimensions level of CRP was significantly higher than in patients with THEM without SN. The most prone to progression SN were persons with CRP concentrations above 15 mg/l at the first measurement. Читать полностью -->


BalanoposthitisBALANOPOSTHITIS is inflammation of the skin of the head and the inner leaflet of the foreskin of the penis. Etiology: most banal infection (Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, fusospirochetal symbiosis, yeast); often infection occurs through sexual contact. Development of balanoposthitis favor the common diseases that weaken the natural resistance of the skin saprophyticus flora (diabetes, anemia, vitamin deficiencies, allergic diseases), local predisposing factors (narrow foreskin, purulent discharge from the urethra, the lack of hygienic care). The clinical picture. There are simple, erosive and gangrenous inflammation of prepuce. Simple balanoposthitis is characterized spilled redness, swelling and maceration of the skin of the head and the inner leaflet of the foreskin with the subsequent formation of surface isolated and confluent erosions of various sizes and shapes with purulent discharge, surrounded by scraps materialynogo epithelium.

Deficiency of vitamin A leads to immune disorders

Deficiency of vitamin A leads to immune disordersIn populations where the availability of vitamin A from food - low, infectious diseases, can accelerate the development of vitamin A deficiency, reducing consumption, absorption and increasing excretion from the body. Infectious diseases that have the acute phase also violate the status of vitamin A, quickly reducing the concentration of serum retinol. Deficiency of vitamin a affects the state of innate immunity, preventing normal regeneration barriers mucosa damaged by infection, reducing the activity of neutrophils, macrophages and natural killer cells. These changes may explain the high mortality observed in vitamin A-deficient infants, small children and pregnant women, in many areas of the world (Annu. Rev. Nutr., 2001). Читать полностью -->

Dirty air causes cataracts

Dirty air causes cataractsPermanent job or accommodation in the regions where the environment contains a lot of lead, contributes to the development of one of the most serious eye diseases - cataract. This conclusion was made by the doctors of the Women's hospital in Boston. As shown by their research, in which took part 642 patients in the ophthalmology Department, the people, the body contains too much lead (it was measured in the tissues of the tibia), the likelihood of developing cataracts is 2.7 times higher than average. If in addition to this, people still smoke or suffer from diabetes (which also triggers the development of disease), then the probability of occurrence of cataract increases by 3.2 times. "In principle, from experiments on animals, we have long learned that the lead can get into the lens of the eye and cause turbidity, i.e. the development of cataracts," said Dr. Читать полностью -->
