a method of preventing metastasis

a method of preventing metastasisA group of researchers from Cytoscope University, Japan, under the guidance of Professor Hajime Kubo has developed a way to prevent the production of cancer cells new infoprotocol. The research results were presented at the meeting of the Japan Association of oncologists in Fukuoka. Small cancer cells are transported through new lymphokines, forming a new lymph nodes. In the process produces a molecule that determines the factor vascular endothelial growth (VEGF-C), stimulating the growth of lymphatic vessels. Scientists were able to produce antibodies that block lipoprotei and not giving to produce molecules of VEGF-C. The researchers found that mice that were transplanted colon cancer cells without the appropriate antibodies, around the lymph nodes appeared lipoprotei, whereas in mice that were transplanted and antibodies, such practically did not occur.

Additional Q ECG - an unfavorable sign

Additional Q ECG - an unfavorable signThe researchers studied the diagnostic value of additional (new) teeth Q after acute coronary insufficiency in 10,501 patients. Of these, 9447 no additional teeth Q, 733 Q were the teeth of a 30 - to 40-MS and 321 Q = 40 MS or more. The mortality of patients in the next six months was significantly higher in patients with more teeth Q. the Most significant risk factor was the length of Q > 40 MS. Thus, the presence of additional teeth Q - adverse prognostic factor for patients undergoing acute coronary insufficiency. Megafarm. Читать полностью -->

High cholesterol can cause deafness

High cholesterol can cause deafnessExcessively high levels of cholesterol in the blood leads to an increase in its viscosity, thereby reducing the speed of advancement of blood in small vessels. This, in turn, causes insufficient blood supply to the inner ear. Some scholars suggest that this fact may be cause for the reduction of hearing in humans. To prevent sudden hearing loss, should be more attentive to consume fats. The most favorable are vegetable fats.. . Читать полностью -->
