A vertical accelerometer measured vertical movement 225 participants for seven days.

At the beginning of the study the researchers surveyed the participants about their physical activity. Next, a vertical accelerometer measured vertical movement 225 participants for seven days. Participants wore the device such as a pager, and it measured units of physical activities such as walking or climbing stairs.

The study used laboratory mouse models of chronic progressive multiple sclerosis in humans. Define the severity of the disease and treatment success were naturally active by measuring the mice, especially at night like mice are nocturnal animals. Continue reading

This method, which is currently available for women of childbearing age from 18 to 42, ible choice for those who start to chemotherapy immediately because of the nature of their cancer diagnosis offered. It involves the removal of a portion of ovarian tissue with eggs, freezing and then thawing it at a later time. Further research will techniques to isolate techniques to isolate and grow immature follicles in the lab. Once mature, the eggs can be completed within these follicles fertilized embryos as in the traditional in-vitro fertilization .

This process is a very promising alternative to IVF, freezing embryos and freezing eggs – processes that are as much as three to six weeks need to work efficiently. Continue reading

The study followed 213 initially untreated adults with erythema migrans.

The study followed 213 initially untreated adults with erythema migrans, the telltale bull’s-eye rash that is most common clinical feature of Lyme disease, to determine when occurring blood stream invasion, how many patients invasion experienced is compromised is compromised blood flow. Invasion occurred in 93 of the patients in the study who were more often symptomatic and more likely multiple erythema migrans lesions have than the 120 patients without blood stream invasion. However had some patients no telltale symptoms, so it is not the presence or absence of blood stream invasion predict with certainty on clinical features alone. Younger patients and those were with a history of Lyme disease being protected some. Wormser and his colleagues concluded that The high rate, early onset and prolonged risk of blood invasion probably explain why untreated patients with erythema migrans often develop complications from the tick bite location without Elderly.

Wormser, Professor of Medicine, Chief, Division of Infectious Diseases and Vice Chairman of the Department of Medicine. ‘If Lyme disease remained in the skin, it would be a very different and rather inconsequential infection – but it does not,’Wormser explained. ‘The causative agent of Lyme disease by from joining the tick bite site through the blood to distant sites such as the brain, heart and joints. This study answers questions which has never been answered and throws others that likely to stimulate future studies on Lyme disease. Continue reading
