Senile dementia and Parkinson's disease linked

Senile dementia and Parkinson's disease linkedVarious severe diseases of the brain can have a single cause. American scientists have found common elements in the mechanism of development of Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, or senile dementia. This may explain why patients with the same disease often show symptoms of the other. The scientists believe that the cure for one disease may be effective in another. Researchers, in particular Professor, Virginia Lee (Virginia Lee) from the medical faculty of the University of Pennsylvania, studied two chemical substances that play a key role in the development of the two diseases of the brain. We are talking about the Tau protein, which in large quantities are found in Alzheimer's disease, and alpha-synuclein, which in Parkinson's disease becomes toxic and affects the brain.

Pomegranate juice will protect from heart attack

Pomegranate juice will protect from heart attackThe pomegranate juice polyphenols attenuate lipid peroxidation of the plasma, the formation of foam cells and atherosclerotic plaques. Dr. Filomena de Nigris and her colleagues at the University of Naples (Italy) is first subjected to a culture of human endothelial cells, taken from the coronary arteries, the effects of intense stress stress (shear stress) in vitro, adding concentrate pomegranate juice. This resulted in reduced activation of redox-sensitive type genes ELK-1 and p-JUN and increased expression of endothelial NO synthase (eNOS). The authors then added pomegranate juice in drinking water, which was given to laboratory mice with hypercholesterolemia before and after the development of atherosclerosis. It turned out that the mice that drank at least 31 Ојl of juice a day, the area of the plaques and the formation of foam cells was decreased by approximately 20%, compared with animals treated water without adding juice.

These useful habits

These useful habitsJust five years ago the list of bad habits was extremely narrow - Smoking and alcohol - what was considered the thing that urgently need to get rid of, so that, according to popular wisdom, not to work on tablets. However, the development of civilization and the desire to live longer, without losing quality of life, has led to the fact that there is a real cult healthy lifestyle, the following of which implied the rejection of a register of the sweet pleasures. Anathema were brought and products, and household habits, laziness, love of gossip and discussion of other negative emotions, as well as reading entertainment magazines and evening vigil in front of the TV instead of sports or artistic modeling. But time will put everything in its place: it turned out that all of the above is not harmful food and empty pastime. The secret lies in what to indulge in "vices" to the knowledge of the case. Then instead of harm will be a solid use... Читать полностью -->

do Not make any sudden movements

 do Not make any sudden movementsAs demonstrated by scientists at Cambridge University, people after 40, especially women, are particularly sensitive to rapidly coming to intense physical exercise. This is associated with the normal aging process decimalization cardiac muscle - a decrease in the number of nerve fibers stimulate heart activity. As a result, the increased work of the heart become responsible blood hormones such as adrenaline. But such regulation already suffer from "lag" is now not an electrical nerve impulse carries the information about the lack of oxygen and blood flow. As a result, while strengthening the heart, comes tissue hypoxia and cell death. Therefore, from Jogging to the bus, lifts weights is better to abstain. Читать полностью -->

The problem of the "establishment" of neurons solved

The problem of the The problem of the "establishment" of neurons solved American scientists have managed to develop one of the first practical applications of embryonic stem cells. In experiments on laboratory animals they picked up the conditions under which you entered in the brain and spinal cord cells are transformed into neurons and restore existing damage to the nervous tissue. Previous studies devoted to this problem, do not give the desired result - most implanted in neural tissue stem cells were killed. To circumvent this obstacle, scientists from the University of Texas had to develop a special multi-component product, which consisted of several growth factors nerve tissue. As shown by studies conducted on laboratory rats after treatment with this drug was put into brain stem cells much more efficiently transformed into Mature neurons, and it is of the type which dominated in the implant area. "Treatment of stem cells with growth factors, transforming them into some plastic structure, which had a higher potential to transform the original cell culture, - said the head of research Professor Ping Wu.

Dislocation of the temporomandibular joint

Dislocation of the temporomandibular jointDISLOCATION of the TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT - the offset of the articular head of the mandible. Etiology. A strong opening of the mouth (when eating, crying, yawning, when interventions - tooth removal, gastric intubation, intubation etc), trauma. The pathogenesis is associated with stretching or rupture of the joint capsule. Is set to the inherent weakness of ligaments. There are dislocations full and partial (subluxation) front, rear, unilateral and bilateral. Читать полностью -->
