Important information about the origin of multiple myeloma

Important information about the origin of multiple myelomaResearchers from the Cancer center name Kimmel at the Johns Hopkins University has received important information about the origin of multiple myeloma is extremely dangerous malignant tumors of the red bone marrow. Dr. Matsui and his colleagues came to the conclusion that this form of cancer occurs due to damage of the hereditary system, affecting only one rare line of hematopoietic stem cells. If the conclusion will be true, pharmacologists will be able to start work on drugs, destroying defective cells of this type. Radio "Freedom"". . Читать полностью -->

Found "gene Thatcher" to sleep much less than usual

Found American scientists have discovered a gene that may explain why some people enough to sleep only a couple of hours a day. This is indicated by the results of a study conducted by scientists. A small mutation in a gene, dubbed "gene Thatcher" in honor of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, which was famous for its low need for sleep, allows fruit flies-the mutants feel, although they sleep very little compared to congeners. Because this gene controls the biological processes that are involved in the process of sleep in humans, the results of the study suggest that the basis of the variation amount of sleep needed by different people, are genetic mechanisms. These results may also help to create new drugs to treat sleep disorders, plunging into a deep sleep of insomnia, or, on the contrary, preventing attacks in patients with narcolepsy. Although this modification of the gene and allows you to lead a normal life, spending on sleep little time, however, it seems not very good for overall health: flies mutants live on less.

do I Need to treat AIDS?

do I Need to treat AIDS?European doctors are concerned about the increasing resistance of the causative agent of AIDS in relation to existing antiviral drugs. As we learned from the report of the Dutch researcher David van de Waver at the international conference on AIDS in Paris, resistance occurs at least 10 percent of newly identified HIV-infected. The only way out of the situation Waver thinks constantly working to create new drugs. As reported at the conference by another researcher - GeoIP lang (Joep Lange, President of the international society for AIDS - resistance to existing drugs is no excuse not to use them. According to him, it is necessary to maintain the interest of pharmaceutical companies in the development of new tools to "catch up" for mutations of the AIDS virus. Vaccine against AIDS has not yet been established, and many Immunostimulants only contribute to the development of the disease. Читать полностью -->

Ten questions about diet

Ten questions about dietTen questions about diet 1. How much should weigh the woman's? There are several methods to calculate your ideal weight. The first, now, according to doctors and women, outdated, was proposed a century ago by the French physician Paul Brock. The formula is simple - from the growth in centimeters minus 100 and it turns out right this growth weight in kilograms. However, this form does not account for individual differences in body structure (long legs, big bones, athletic build). It was later proposed a BMI (Booby-Mass-Index). Читать полностью -->

Disorders of lipid metabolism statins reduce the levels of C-reactive protein

Disorders of lipid metabolism statins reduce the levels of C-reactive proteinDisorders of lipid metabolism statins reduce the levels of C-reactive protein Previously it was demonstrated that statins can reduce the concentration of C-reactive protein (CRP) in patients with normo - or hypercholesterolemia. However, it was not known, is there a similar effect with hypertriglyceridemia and normal/increased concentration of cholesterol low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Dr. Michele Mercuri and his colleagues at Merck Research Laboratories (Rahway, NJ) studied the effects of simvastatin in 130 patients with combined hyperlipidemia and 195 patients with hypertriglyceridemia. The results of these double-blind placebo-controlled studies published in the November issue of the American Journal of Cardiology. The source levels of LDL and cholesterol in high density lipoprotein (HDL cholesterol), but not triglycerides, weakly correlated with baseline CRP concentrations. Читать полностью -->
