Hypoparathyroidism

Parathyroid Hormone Was Safe And Effective Over 6 Years

Hypoparathyroidism is a disorder of mineral homeostasis characterize by deficient or absent parathyroid hormone. The associate clinical findings are hypocalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, and reduce tubular reabsorption of calcium, often leading to hypercalciuria. Conventional treatment with oral calcium and activate vitamin D (calcitriol) doesn’t always maintain normal serum calcium levels and also doesn’t restore other physiologic actions…

Tumors

Profound Insights Into Tumors' Unique Genetic Features

Large libraries of cancer cell lines collections of cells that represent tumor types seen in cancer patients; but can yield profound insights into tumors’ unique genetic features; and their sensitivities to current and potential treatments. The data produced by these libraries is invaluable for developing new therapeutic options for patients. Such is the case with…

Radio daignosis

offers a cheaper and safer alternative to medical X-rays

Researches shows that Medical tests such as X-rays, CT scans and PET scans are vital tools for diagnosing diseases. Because While there are numerous benefits to these types of tests;therefore  they can expose patients to higher than normal doses of radiation. Exposure to too much radiation from medical imaging can increase the risk of cancer;…

Astronauts: Sleep Quantity And Quality Is Required To Maintain Vigilance

Sleep is regulating by two oscillatory processes; the circadian process and the homoeostatic process. The circadian process oscillates on a near 24 h rhythm and defines the sleep inclination periods. Under normal conditions, the circadian process is synchronizing with the light/dark cycle. Astronauts witness short sunrises 16 times a day; as the International Space Station (ISS)…

Hypertension

Antihypertensive Effect In Vivo Of QAGLSPVR

Hypertension is considering a public cardiovascular disease and an important risk factor of myocardial infarction; cerebral infarction, and renal failure. Angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE); plays a key role in controlling hypertension. ACE inhibition is an important method often using to treat high blood pressure. Previous studies show that many peptides from food materials have ACE…

More than 90% of cases are reported in sub-Saharan Africa. Scientists have spent decades searching for an effective vaccine. Hence the recent excitement when Malawi’s government announced it…

Huntington's disease

Nano-tubes Enables Motility OF Toxins In Huntington's

A toxic protein linked to Huntington’s disease can move from neuron to neuron through a nanotube tunnel; but whose construction is initiated by a protein called Rhes, say scientists at Scripps Research. The finding, by Scripps Research neuroscientist Srinivasa Subramaniam, Ph.D.; but improves understanding of how and why this disease attacks and destroys certain brain…

Exploring How A Hazardous Fungal Pathogen 'Tastes'

Researchers at the University of Bath and Rothamsted Research was examining ; but “fungal G-protein coupled receptors,” which are similar to taste receptors; on our tongues, are involving in promoting Fusarium Head Blight (FHB); a damaging and hazardous disease of wheat which is the number one floral disease in cereals globally. Fusarium Head Blight targets…
