Ozone/Oxygen Shot Helps Heal Herniated Disk
... of ozone and oxygen may prove to be a safe, effective and less invasive way to relive the pain of a herniated disk, U.S. researchers say.
discs normally act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae, but when one is damaged, it may bulge or break, putting pressure on spinal cord nerves. ...
A Bone Marrow Disease With a Brighter Prognosis
... Cancer Center.
"If everyone who was fatigued thought they had aplastic anemia, we'd be swamped," Paquette said.
Bone marrow -- the spongy
material inside bones -- produces stem cells that normally develop into the three main types of blood cells -- red blood cells, white blood cells, ...
New Hope For Impotent Men - Artificial Penis On The Way
... used the rabbits' own cells to build the spongy
tissue structure that makes up the bulk of the ... dysfunction, known as corporal fibrosis, the spongy
corpora tissue does not get enough oxygen and begins to get replaced by scar tissue. Growing new spongy
corpora tissue for implantation could help these ...
A New Inexpensive Technology for Multiplexed Detection
... quantified using a single fluorescent color, which greatly simplifies detection.
The particles are also unique in that they are made of a spongy
polymer "hydrogel" called poly(ethylene glycol). That polymer enhances the sensitivity of the test because it is porous, allowing the target ...
Virus may Be the Cause of Mad Cow
... a cascade of abnormal changes in other proteins.
In Manuelidis' previous experiments, prions did not appear until late in the progression of spongy
To find what appears at an earlier phase, Manuelidis' team homogenized mouse brains infected with scrapie and Creutzfeldt-Jakob ...
Scientists Reverse Mad Cow Disease in Mice
... sponge. This results in the deterioration of the brain.
The mice subjected to these procedures revealed a good recovery to normal behaviour. The spongy
nature of the brain was also reverted and normal memory restored. The fact that these mice were very young in age contributed to the revival. ...
Genetically Altered Cells Prevent Lethal Infections in Substituted Skin
... skin substitutes are grown in a laboratory using cells from a burn patient's own skin. These cells are cultured, expanded and combined with a spongy
layer of collagen to make skin grafts that are reattached to the burn wound.
Dorothy Supp, PhD, and her team found that skin cells that were ...
Gluten Free Bread: Boon for Celiac Disease
The aim was to develop a type of bread suitable for celiacs with a similar taste and similar texture to bread made with wheat flour -- that is, a spongy
centre and a "normal" volume -- as well as a unique taste that makes it stand out from existing products.
The researchers have focused on two ...
New Study shows That Radiation Therapy Could Harm The Bones
... therapeutic dose of radiation, which could be compared to a single dose of radiation received by human cancer patients lost as much as 39% of the spongy
portion of their inner bone.
It was explained by the scientists that this study could have very important implications for patients who were ...
Smoking Increases Osteoporosis Risk
... primarily affects a specific type of bone called cortical bone. This very dense bone forms a layer, similar to the enamel on teeth, around softer, spongy
bone. Lorentzon and colleagues found that smoking reduces the thickness of cortical bone. The findings indicate that smoking may significantly affect ...
A New Bioactive Cement For Facial Reconstruction the future
... shells, strengthens the cement, which is made of calcium phosphate material. The implant is further reinforced to about the same strength as spongy
natural bone by covering it with several layers of a biodegradable fibre mesh that is in use in clinical practice.
Mr.Hockin Xu, of the ADAF ...
Novel Test For Early Detection Of Gullet Cancer
... Detecting cancer of the esophagus could be as simple as swallowing a spongy
pill with a string attached to it. Thanks to the fervent efforts of Cambridge University researchers // that can detect more than 7,000 such cancers ...
