growing numbers of cancer patients

growing numbers of cancer patientsIn the past 30 years, the world has seen a significant growth of breast cancer and lung. In his report to the British research organization Cancer Research UK says that much of this increase was due to increases in life expectancy, because the cancer is usually more common in old age. Other factors include poor diet and Smoking. In the study, doctors have revealed populations are more prone to disease certain types of cancer, which can contribute to a more effective fight against the disease. Since 1975, the population has increased from 4 billion to approximately 6,3. People aged over 60 years now the world is 10%, however, it is expected that this proportion will increase to 22% by 2050, scientists say. Читать полностью -->

The presence of plaques in the coronary arteries is a predictor of renal artery stenosis

The presence of plaques in the coronary arteries is a predictor of renal artery stenosisThe presence of plaques in the coronary arteries is a predictor of renal artery stenosis The presence of two or more plaques in the coronary arteries is a reliable predictor of renal artery stenosis v correctable causes of symptomatic hypertension and renal failure. Dr. Peter Kotanko and his colleagues from the University Karl Franzens (Graz, Austria) was revealed stenosis of the renal artery (SPA) in 177 patients with suspected coronary artery disease. To this end, all participants performed abdominal aortography and coronary angiography. As reported in the November issue of the European Heart Journal, 19 patients was found to be clinically significant (at least 50%) one - or two-way SPA. The remaining 158 patients SPA was missing or clinically insignificant. Читать полностью -->

Opening organelles in prokaryotic organism defies one of the theories of origin Guangdong China

Opening organelles in prokaryotic organism defies one of the theories of origin Guangdong ChinaResearchers studying the internal structure of one of the pathogenic soil bacteria, described the organelle that exists inside the cell, regardless of the plasma membrane. The opening of this structure within the prokaryotic cells, in the opinion of the authors of the study, questioned one of the most common theories of the origin of eukaryotic organelles, namely symbiotic. The described structure characteristic of this bacterium, can serve as a new potential therapeutic target. Organelle found by the authors in the bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens, in fact, identical to the organelle called acidically in single-celled eukaryotes " said Roberto Docampo, Professor of veterinary pathobiology in the Veterinary College of the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign). Dr. Docampo began to explore these organelles in 1994. Читать полностью -->

less sensitive sense of smell is the first sign of Alzheimer's disease

less sensitive sense of smell is the first sign of Alzheimer's diseaseAs shown by scientists in the development of Alzheimer's disease, primarily the perception of odors as a result of the death of olfactory cells and neurons, responsible for the sense of smell. As Richard says Doty (Director of the center for diseases of taste and smell of Pennsylvania medical center, Philadelphia, USA): "most of the patients as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, already in the early stages of the disease there is a loss of smell. This symptom may serve as targets for early diagnosis and destination effective treatment". Dr. Doty and his colleagues showed that the cause of death of olfactory cells is the formation of a large number of so-called protein "Tau" in areas of the brain responsible for smell. To study the effect of Tau on the sense of smell, scientists have created a special, genetically modified breed of mice, brain cells are produced pathogenic protein in large quantities.
