New treatment for Osteoporosis

...n cells. It was known that when oestrogen binds to receptors in cells, it activates a signal that changes the gene expression. The team found that in bone cells, oestrogen can also trigger a signal preventing the cells from dying thereby prolonging their lives and keeping the bones strong. This signal acts d...

Bald head bad health

...Bald men seem to have a greater number of androgen receptors in their scalps , and androgens may contribute to both atheroscelrosis - build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries - and thrombosis, a susceptibility to blood clots.Researchers also say that heart disease and baldness may be inherited together and t...

Heat therapy relieves back pain

... It leads to the growth of new tissue full of pain receptors and to irritation of the spinal nerves. The IDET treatment destroys the painful tissue and is less invasive than traditional surgery for lower back pain, taking just 45 minutes to perform.

More about HIV

...munodeficiency virus is a retrovirus that binds to receptors found on membranes of immune system T cells. When HIV attacks a cell, the virus is internalized, copied into DNA, then migrates into the nucleus where it inserts itself as part of the host DNA. In many cases, the inserted viral genes remain dormant, ...
