Drs Kim Lavoie and Simon Bacon from the H?

Drs Kim Lavoie and Simon Bacon from the H? Pital du Sacr? Coeur de Montr? worked with a team of researchers to asthma severity in a group of 871 adult patients examined. They said ‘. Lower academic performance of poor asthma control, more emergency use, and worse asthma self-efficacy was associated with less than 12 years education, 55 percent were more likely an asthma-related emergency health service visit report last year. ‘.

That can worsen asthma, such as smoking and obesity. ‘.. The researchers suggest that lower education is often a marker of lower socioeconomic status in general, and that this explained their results. On the individual level, poorer people may have higher exposures to indoor allergens, such as cockroaches, tobacco smoke and mold, and outdoor air pollution in cities. Voie: ‘Although this link between socioeconomic status and asthma in children is well established, this is the first study to it it in an adult population in Canada, it is noteworthy that the patients show with less education rather poor health behaviors.

For the microbial synthesis of artemisinin

For the microbial synthesis of artemisinin, the idea started with malaria, a disease in 4 BC in 4 BC by Hippocrates that continues to more than a million more than a million victims each year, most of them children. The complex life cycle of Plasmodium falciparum, the parasite that carries malaria, makes it impossible to eradicate the disease. The treatment is the only option, and the most effective current treatment is artemisinin, the high doses of oxygen-based free radicals, which destroy Plasmodium parasite releasing releasing in a red blood cell . The cost of extraction of artemisinin from wormwood trees , which only produce the drug under a narrow range of agricultural and climatic conditions or its production exclusively by chemical synthesis, so high In 2004, not impoverished in Africa and South America most most can not afford.

Expand Anti – Malaria Drug Effectiveness Through synthetic biologyIn addition to providing a simple and much less expensive means, artemisinin, the most powerful anti-malarial drugs in use today in synthetic biology synthetic biology the effectiveness the effectiveness of this drug. Fermenting artemisinin via engineered microbes, such as yeast, can be at far lower costs than extracting the drug from Artemsisia annua, the wormwood tree, making microbial-based artemisinin made a lot cheaper, but equally effective treatment. This technology this technology responsible manufacturers bundle artemisinin as part of an anti-malarial drug cocktail rather than selling it as a monotherapy should delay or even prevent malaria parasites from developing resistance. Recently there have been reports of malaria parasites in West Africa showing some signs of resistance to artemisinin. The problem is that some manufacturers have sold artemisinin monotherapy is not as a co – therapy recommended by the World Health Organization, said Jay Keasling, a chemical engineer with joint appointments at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley, who. Pioneer in the development of these microbial-based method for producing artemisinin Any used as monotherapy used as monotherapy to users opens the possibility of developing developing against them. Currently artemisinin is from farmers sold all over the world and no one grew. Through the synthetic biology technology, access to the cheapest artemisinin be limited manufacturers who agree to sell as part of a co-therapy drug. . Continue reading

A new study has revealed.

St. Michael treatment of elderly hospitalized patientshospitals the quality the quality for young people are not getting the same quality of care for the elderly, a new study has revealed.As our population ages and requires more health care, hospitals, the quality of care they provide to measure over 65 years and implementation of programs in order to meet their diverse needs, said the study’s author, Avery Nathens, trauma director at St. Michael’s Hospital.

What was surprising was that the centers, which provided high-quality care for the young do does not necessarily for the elderly. This suggests that some hospitals in place something unique, preoperative addresses the needs of older patients down, said Dr. Nathens. What is introduced, however, is not quite clear. .

Findings suggestode TB.

Findings suggestode TB,Call tuberculosis to Old West consumptives and early 20 Century sanatoriums against, but according to the World Health Organization, the disease took the lives of more than 1.5 million people worldwide in 2006. In the United States alone, thousands of new cases are reported annually making TB a permanent threat. The need to better understand this disease is becoming more critical, note the researchers at Arizona State University, especially with the emergence of antibiotic-resistant strains and increased global spur pathogen migration.

Born Pfister and raised in Chile where TB ran before they act by aggressive government health programs rife But as in other parts of the world, Chile is now faced with a resurgence of tuberculosis Nonetheless Pfister hope that one day. Deadly pathogens is rendered obsolete She raves: ‘We now have a lot of genetic data we can count mutations There. Proofs,. We only need to link all if we start on the history and the essence of TB in a holistic, transdisciplinary. Continue reading

Taylor and her colleagues found within within the amygdala.

Taylor and her colleagues found within within the amygdala, a brain region known to critically the creation and storage of fearful memories, selective activation of protein kinase involved his A is sufficient to enhance memory reconsolidation and strengthen a previously established fear memory Conversely, inhibition of PKA disrupted in the amygdala memory reconsolidation. These results , bidirectional behavioral plasticity after memory retrieval, Taylor said. We also found that the amygdala PKA activation not to other memory processes after retrieval, including extinction fear memory, further shows that our findings reconsolidation reconsolidation process. .

Long-term storage solidifies fear memory in the brain – When activated, a specific protein increased in the brain long-term storage of fearful memories and strengthens previously established fearful memories, Yale School of Medicine researchers report this week in Nature Neuroscience. – This evidence evidence of improvements in memory reconsolidation is to demonstrate the brain, said lead author, Jane Taylor, associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry. Understanding these molecular mechanisms may provide critical insights to in psychiatric disorders. . Continue reading

Mood affective disorder or migraine.

Topiramate, gabapentin and appear to be appear to be major teratogens[ an agent. The an embryo or fetus] may cause, but our study does not rule out minor moderate risk of serious birth defects, ‘the authors conclude.. The prevalence odds ratios for all major birth defects after exposure to any newer-generation antiepileptic drugs during the first trimester were not statistically different for mothers with epilepsy, mood affective disorder or migraine, or without a diagnosis. ‘Our study, to our knowledge, is the largest analytic cohort study on this topic and provides comprehensive safety information on a class of drugs frequently during pregnancy The use of lamotrigine and oxcarbazepine during the first trimester is not associated with moderate or greater risks using heavy birth defects like the older generation antiepileptic drugs, but our study can not rule out a small surplus at risk of serious birth defects or risks of certain birth defects.

The study included data on 837,795 live-born infants in Denmark from January 1996 to September 2008. Individual – level information on dispensed antiepileptic agents, mothers, birth defect diagnoses, and potential confounders have been identified by national health registers.. Prenatal use of newer antiepileptic drugs not associated with an increased risk of serious birth defects associateduse of newer-generation antiepileptic drugs that are prescribed for bipolar affective disorders and migraine was, during the first trimester associated with an increased associated with an increased associated risk of major birth defects the first year of life among infants in Denmark, according to a study in the 18 May issue of JAMA.
