.Neuroendocrine Tumors

Although pathologic concepts regarding squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma have remained relatively stable during the past 10 years, those regarding the class of neuroendocrine tumors have continued to undergo revision and refinement. Neuroendocrine tumors are defined as those that produce biogenic amines. Pathologically, this can be demonstrated by a positive argyrophil or argentaffin stain, the presence of nerursecretory granules by electron microscopy

ADD

While there is currently no cure for ADD, treatment can usually help to manage symptoms. Treatment is geared toward helping those with ADD control their weak attention spans or high energy levels. This generally requires a combination of the following treatments: behavior modification and other psychological or psychiatric treatment, educational assistance, and medication. ADD is recognized as a disability under the Americans With Disabilities Act, so it is illegal to discriminate against a qualified applicant or employee because he or she suffers from ADD.

Atherosclerosis

High blood sugar, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure contribute to the formation of plaque on the inside walls of the blood vessels. This process, known as atherosclerosis, reduces the amount of blood that can pass through the blood vessels.

Atrial Fibrillation

The heart is a remarkable organ. It is a muscle that relaxes and contracts, pumping blood carrying oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. The steady rhythm of these contractions is controlled by electrical impulses that travel through the heart, first through the upper chambers, called the atria; and then through the lower chambers, called the ventricles. In order to reach the ventricles, electrical impulses must pass here, at the atrioventricular node. Atrial fibrillation occurs when a storm of electrical impulses spread through the atria in a chaotic and disorganized pattern, causing the atria to begin rapidly contracting. as a result, the ventricles may also begin contracting faster. When the heart is in atrial fibrillation, the body can’t receive the blood and oxygen it needs.

Back to Life Journal

Sadly, too many times people with back and neck pain get a prescription of disability when they go to the doctor. "Don't play tennis. Don't play golf. Don't go fishing." While a day of rest may be okay right after an injury, the best therapy for back pain is movement. In fact, too much rest can make muscles and tendons less flexible - and more prone to future recurrent strain and back pain. Fact: You need a 20 minute walk to counter the effects of three hours of lying down. How would you know this? You'd learn that and more by reading our free 16-page Back to Life Journal. The Journal provides tips for those with back pain on how to get back to tennis, back to golf, or back to biking. Download your copy of the Back to Life Journal at NorthJerseySpineGroup.com.

Blood Glucose Meters

If you have diabetes, using a blood glucose meter is very important. It helps you keep your blood sugar within a healthy range. They don’t all look like this one, but they all pretty much work the same way. You provide a drop of blood, and the meter tells you what your glucose level is. Don’t get freaked out, it’s just a little pinch, and using the meter is really easy. The first thing to do is to load a test strip into the meter. That’s a little piece of paper that reacts with your blood.

Choosing The Right Health Plan 2

The open enrollment period for your health-insurance plan comes once every year, usually during the fall. The corresponding paperwork typically generates as much enthusiasm as your yearly tax forms. But don't be tempted to just put a check mark next to your current plan. With so many insurers and employers raising health-insurance premiums and scaling back benefits, you need to know how your health plan stacks up against any others offered to you at work and whether it's the best choice for you.

Corneal Epithelium

The corneal epithelium is a thin layer of fast-growing and easily regenerated tissue kept moist by tears. The epithelium absorbs oxygen and cell nutrients from tears, and then distributes these nutrients to the rest of the cornea. The part of the epithelium that serves as the foundation on which the epithelial cells anchor and organize themselves is called the basal membrane. The Bowman’s membrane is a transparent sheet of tissue composed of strong, layered protein fibers called collagen. The corneal stroma accounts for 90% of the cornea’s thickness, consisting primarily of water (78%) and collagen (16%). Collagen gives the cornea its strength, elasticity and form. The collagen’s unique shape, arrangement and spacing are essential in making the cornea transparent. The Descemet’s membrane is a thin, strong sheet of tissue that serves as a protective barrier against infection and injuries.

Depression

Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine:

Depression, also known as depressive disorders or unipolar depression, is a mental illness characterized by a profound and persistent feeling of sadness or despair and/or a loss of interest in things that were once pleasurable. Disturbance in sleep, appetite, and mental processes are a common accompaniment. Everyone experiences feelings of unhappiness and sadness occasionally. However, when these depressed feelings start to dominate everyday life without a recent loss or trauma and cause physical and mental deterioration, they become what is known as depression. Each year in the United States, depression affects an estimated 17 million people at an approximate annual direct and indirect cost of $53 billion. One in four women is likely to experience an episode of severe depression in her lifetime, with a 10-20% lifetime prevalence, compared to 5-10% for men. The average age a first depressive episode occurs is in the mid-20s, although the disorder strikes all age groups indiscriminately, from children to the elderly.

Disease

One of the biggest problems is drug resistance--the ability of infectious microorganisms to evade the drugs designed to stop them. These drug-resistant strains now include some pneumonias, tuberculosis, malaria, and AIDS. A second problem is the emergence of new infectious diseases. While AIDS and Lyme disease are obvious examples, more than 30 new disease-causing organisms have been discovered since 1976.

Drugs And Youth

Marijuana, the most popular drug of the 60s, is up to 20 times more powerful today than it was in the days of “flower power.” “Pot” was once thought to be a drug with few negative effects. Now there is concrete evidence that marijuana is harmful; it interferes with learning, and it impairs the healthy growth and development of children. This potent form of marijuana has 2-3 times the THC levels needed to cause severe psychological symptoms. Marijuana affects the brain, interfering with the ability to remember and think clearly, and to drive safely. It increases the heart rate and blood pressure, and causes damage to the lungs.

Ear Infections

You’ve seen your child’s symptoms. Crying all night. No appetite. Waking every hour or two, running a fever, tugging at little ears. Just when you thought you had it conquered for the season, your child’s ear infection is back. Bacteria are often the culprits. Fortunately antibiotics may help. But your role is also crucial. And the more you know about ear infections, the better prepared you are to fight them. Remember these tips. If you suspect your child has an ear infection, see your doctor. Don’t insist on a prescription for an antibiotic if your child has a viral infection, such as a cold or the flu. Tell your doctor if your child is taking other medications. Complete the prescription, even after your child starts to feel well.

Ear Video

Let's look at the parts of the ear. The flap on the outside of your head is called the outer ear. It leads to a long tunnel called the ear canal. At the end of the ear canal is a skin stretched across the tunnel—tight like a drum. This is called the eardrum.

Let's see what happens to sound waves as they move through the ear. We'll use the sound from a radio as an example. The sounds from the radio travel in waves. The waves are collected by the outer ear and sent through the other parts of the ear to the brain. Now, let's see how each part works.

Exercise

Moderate exercise boosts your immune system; while extreme exercise, such as marathon running, depresses the immune system, moderate exercise, such as walking, may actually prove to benefit it. That’s according to new research from Dr. David C. Nieman, a professor of exercise science at Appalachian State University in North Carolina. Nieman had a group of sedentary women begin walking 45 minutes a day, five days a week, and found that they caught half as many colds as their peers who stayed perched on the sofa. Recently, to see if exercise could stave off aging’s debilitating effects on the immune system, he studied exceptionally active women in their seventies and eighties, who had been walking competitively, for example.

Fibromyalgia

“Fibromyalgia syndrome, or F-M-S, is a chronic disorder affecting millions of people causing widespread pain in joints, tendons and muscles.”

“Patients feel pain in as many as 18 specific “tender points,” small areas on the body less than an inch across. Even the slightest pressure on a tender point can cause excruciating pain.”

“Sufferers may describe their pain as a deep persistent ache, stabbing or shooting muscular pain, or a burning sensation just beneath the skin.”

“Other common symptoms include incapacitating fatigue, depression or anxiety, trouble sleeping, and problems with memory.”

“To be diagnosed with FMS, the patient must have pain in at least 11 of the 18 tender points, and must have pain in all four quadrants of the body.”

“Many researchers think the brain and spinal cord process pain messages incorrectly, causing FMS patients to feel pain more intensely.”

“Physical or emotional trauma may trigger fibromyalgia. People involved in auto accidents, soldiers at war, or others in stressful situations sometimes develop FMS.”

“Since there is no cure for fibromyalgia, treatment involves managing the symptoms with pain and antidepressant medications, and improving general health with proper exercise, adequate sleep, and a healthy diet.”

Germs

A reassessment of diseases that might be infectious has been greatly facilitated by increasingly powerful tools of detection. Kaposi’s sarcoma, known for more than a century as a rare cancer that occurred in elderly men of Mediterranean extraction, was unmasked in the 1980s and 1990s, when a large number of KS cases arose in people whose immune systems were compromised by HIV. Statistical analysis led to the suspicion that the chain of infection was sexual. Over the past decade, scientists have accepted the infectious nature of about a dozen other diseases, including hepatitis C, nasopharyngeal cancer, Whipple’s disease, bacillary angiomatosis, Bell’s palsy, and the “aplastic crises” of sickle-cell anemia.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, which is the part of the eye that carries the images we see to the brain. The optic nerve is made up of many nerve fibers, like an electric cable containing numerous wires. When pressure inside the eye increases, damage to the optic nerve fibers may occur, causing blind spots to develop. These blind spots usually go undetected until the optic nerve is significantly damaged. If the entire nerve is destroyed, blindness results. Early detection and treatment by your ophthalmologist are the keys to preventing optic nerve damage and blindness from glaucoma.

Health Care Reform

During the past two decades, all of the industrialized nations have enacted some form of healthcare reform. America is no exception. Just a few years ago, the U.S. was consumed by a vigorous public debate about healthcare. In the end, the result was a useful one, reaffirming that the U.S. would retain its essentially market-based system. Instead of reform imposed from the top down, the American healthcare system underwent some rather profound self-reform, driven by powerful market forces. The market--not the government-- managed to wring inflation out of the private healthcare market.

Hormone Action - Biochemical Aspects Of

Hormone trace substances produced by various endocrine glands, serve as chemical messengers carried by the blood to various target organs, where they regulate a variety of physiological and metabolic activities in vertebrates. Endocrinology, the study of hormones and their action, has long been an important field of vertebrate physiology, but apart from biochemical studies of the molecular structure of some of the hormones, until the late 1960s, little if anything was known of the biochemical mechanisms of hormone action. In the last few years, some important advances have been made in the molecular analysis of hormone function.

IHES and PD

Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome (IHES) is one of a group of intrinsic pulmonary eosinophilic syndromes that are idiopathic in nature. Aggressive therapies can include busulfan, cyclophosphamide, cyclosporin-A, etoposide, azathioprine, hydroxyurea, vincristine, or interferon alfa. Imatinib is used in myeloproliferative IHES.

Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) often involves risk of pancreatic anastomotic leakage. To perform a safe and reliable pancreaticoenteric anastomosis with minimal leakage, most surgeons rely on binding pancreaticojejunostomy--also known as Whipple’s procedure.

Important Safety Information for LIPITOR

LIPITOR® (atorvastatin calcium) tablets are contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any component of this product, in patients with active liver disease or unexplained persistent elevations of hepatic transaminases; in women who are or may become pregnant or who are nursing; in patients with hypersensitivity to any component of this medication.

Rare cases of rhabdomyolysis have been reported with LIPITOR and other statins. Tell patients to promptly report muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness. Predisposing factors include advanced age (≥65), uncontrolled hypothyroidism, and renal impairment. Patients with a history of renal impairment merit closer monitoring. In cases of myopathy or rhabdomyolysis, therapy should be temporarily withheld or discontinued.

The concomitant use of higher doses of LIPITOR® (atorvastatin calcium) tablets with certain drugs such as cyclosporine and strong CYP3A4 inhibitors (eg, clarithromycin, itraconazole, and HIV protease inhibitors) increases the risk of myopathy/rhabdomyolysis. Lower doses of LIPITOR should be considered. Physicians should carefully monitor patients for signs or symptoms of myopathy early during therapy and when titrating the dose of either drug.

It is recommended that liver function tests be performed prior to the initiation of therapy and repeated as clinically indicated therafter.

Increases in HbA1c and fasting serum glucose levels have been reported with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, including LIPITOR® (atorvastatin calcium) tablets.

In a post hoc analysis of the SPARCL study in patients without CHD who had a stroke or TIA within the preceding 6 months, a higher incidence of hemorrhagic stroke was seen in the LIPITOR® 80 mg (atorvastatin calcium) tablets group compared with placebo (2.3% vs 1.4%). Some baseline characteristics, including hemorrhagic and lacunar stroke on study entry, were associated with a higher incidence of hemorrhagic stroke in the LIPITOR group.

The most commonly reported adverse reactions with LIPITOR® (atorvastatin calcium) tablets in placebo-controlled trials were: nasopharyngitis, arthralgia, diarrhea, pain in extremity, and urinary tract infection.

Kissing and Colds

Go ahead and pucker up -- a smooch won’t transmit the sniffles, according to experts. Your mouth contains natural defenses such as antibodies and enzymes that make it hard for cold viruses to set up shop. Rhinovirus, the germ responsible for the majority of colds, prefers to hang out on your hands and in your nose, says Barry Stade, Ph.D., director of the department of clinical virology at Paterson University Medical Center. So unless you rub noses when you kiss or hold hands and then immediately wipe your nose, it’s safe to smooch when you’re sick.

Light Chain Deposition Disease

Light-chain deposition disease (LCDD) is the deposition of monoclonal light chains in multiple organs. It is a rare disease characterized by deposition of nonamyloid immunoglobulin light chains, and they do not stain with Congo red and do not exhibit a fibrillar structure when examined ultrastructurally. It is categorized as a “monoclonal deposition disease” in the World Health Organization classification of tumors of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues. LCDD was first described in 1976 in two patients with end-stage renal disease as granular deposits of free light chains in multiple organs, including the kidneys, that did not stain with Congo red.

Medical Research

Medical research (or experimental medicine) is basic research or applied research conducted to aid the body of knowledge in the field of medicine. Medical research can be divided into two general categories: the evaluation of new treatments for both safety and efficacy in what are termed clinical trials, and all other research that contributes to the development of new treatments. The latter is termed preclinical research if its goal is specifically to elaborate knowledge for the development of new therapeutic strategies.

Migraine Headaches

Today, thanks to new medical research, doctors have a better understanding of migraines. They know that a migraine is more than just a “bad headache.” It has a unique set of biological causes and physical symptoms. These symptoms include at least two of the following: pain on one side of the head, throbbing pain, pain that’s moderate to severe, pain that’s aggravated by activity. Migraine symptoms also include one of the following: sensitivity to light and/or sound, or nausea with or without vomiting. Doctors also have better insight into how much a migraine can affect you and everyone around you. Today doctors can diagnose migraines better; and they can provide treatment programs that are surprisingly effective.

Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathies

Mitochondrial diseases are a heterogeneous group of disorders in which mitochondrial dysfunction produces clinical disease. In the central and peripheral neuromuscular systems, they include such diverse disorders as Alper’s disease, a progressive cerebral poliodystrophy of infancy, and carnitine palmitoyl transferase deficiency, a relatively benign disorder characterized by exercise-induced myoglobinuria. Mitochondrial myopathies are diseases in which the clinical presentation and course of illness are dominated by pathologic involvement of muscle.

Although pathologic concepts regarding squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma have remained relatively stable during the past 10 years, those regarding the class of neuroendocrine tumors have continued to undergo revision and refinement. Neuroendocrine tumors are defined as those that produce biogenic amines. Pathologically, this can be demonstrated by a positive argyrophil or argentaffin stain, the presence of nerursecretory granules by electron microscopy.

Osteoporosis

Calcium has long been known to help prevent osteoporosis, the brittle-bone disease that afflicts many older Americans, especially women. Calcium is particularly helpful in girls and women under 30, whose bones are still forming, and in post-menopausal women, who tend to lose calcium from their bones. In one study, children who took a 700-mg. calcium supplement in addition to a calcium-rich diet had denser bones than those who ate the diet alone. Calcium supplements have also been found to reduce bone loss in post-menopausal women, especially those who get less than 400 mg. of calcium a day from food, reports Beth Dawson-Hughes, M.D., a calcium/osteoporosis researcher at Tufts University.

Pituitary Tumors

The causes of pituitary tumors are unknown. A tumor of the anterior pituitary can cause excess growth hormone production, leading to gigantism or acromegaly. Too much thyroid-stimulating hormone can lead to hyperthyroidism, and excess adrenocorticotropic hormone can cause Cushings Syndrome. Finally, an increased production of prolactin can cause galactorrhea, absence of menstrual periods, and infertility in women. In men, increased production can cause impotence, infertility, feminization, and galactorrhea.

Prostate Cancer

About 200,000 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed each year in the U.S., resulting in more than 40,000 deaths and making it the number 2 cancer killer of men in America. Unlike Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or prostatitis, prostate cancer may not give symptoms in its early, curable stage. Once the cancer spreads, however, it causes pain in the organ it attacks, most often the bones of the spine.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis affects millions of Americans. Like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis occurs more frequently in women than in men. Adult rheumatoid arthritis can occur in people in their 20s and 30s, though it appears more commonly in those over 45 years of age. Researchers now believe that treating rheumatoid arthritis early and aggressively not only may control joint pain, inflammation, and stiffness, but also may slow the progression of the disease.

Running Basics

Run faster by relaxing. Almost any runner who can look less tortured while running will probably run faster. For that “less tortured” look, concentrate on this sequence:

1. Most important, relax your jaw. If you can relax your jaw, everything starts to open up.

2. Consciously drop your shoulders. They should be loose and down, not tightly bunched up around your ears.

3. Shake out your hands and arms.

4. Think “smooth, efficient, fast.” Say it again: “Smooth, efficient, fast.”

Skin Cancer

Women between the ages of 25 and 29 get melanomas more than any other cancer. But most of them neglect the top stay-safe strategy: a monthly skin exam -- yes, even in the winter. Skin cancer can surface throughout the year -- in fact, the sun you got last summer may be the mole you see right now. Look for any change in the shape, size, or color of moles, and watch out for ones that bleed or have a crusty texture. See a dermatologist once every two years for a professional skin check -- or make an annual visit if skin cancer runs in your family.

The Endothelin Axis

The endothelin axis, which comprises endothelins and their receptors, is thought to have a role in the pathophysiology of tumors, including prostate, ovarian, colon, lung, breast, and kidney tumors.

Endothelins are peptides that exert their effects by binding via two G-protein coupled receptors, endothelin receptor A and B (ET-A and ET-B). ET-A and ET-B appear to promote tumor progression by several mechanisms, including cell proliferation, inhibition of apoptosis, angiogenesis, matrix remodeling, and bone deposition in skeletal metastases through activation of osteoblasts.

Activation of ET-A by endothelin-1 promotes tumor growth and progression by inhibiting apoptosis, synergizing with other growth factors to cause cell proliferation, and by stimulating the production of the key angiogenic factor vedge-F in response to hypoxia. ET-A activation also induces matrix-degrading enzymes, such as matrix metalloproteinases and urokinase plasminogen activator, which have important roles in tissue remodeling and tumor metastasis.

In neuronal cells, ET-1/ET-A binding is involved in nociceptive effects associated with cancer bone metastasis and remodeling, and thus may be associated with the bone pain in patients with bone metastasis. In contrast, activation of ET-B by ET-1 promotes vasodilation and induces apoptosis in human cancer cells.

The Vagus Nerve

The vagus nerve represents the nerve of the fourth and subsequent branchial arches. Caudally from the ganglion inferius, it descends along the internal carotid artery and the common carotid artery and arrives in the mediastinum via the superior thoracic aperture. The right nerve passes over the subclavian artery, and the left over the aortic arch and behind the root of the lungs. From that point on, both nerves are in close contact with the esophagus, forming the esophageal plexus. Terminal branches pass with the esophagus into the abdominal cavity via the diaphragmatic esophageal hiatus.

Vitamins

Vitamins are molecules that are essential for normal body functioning. They make possible the processes in the body that digest, absorb, and use nutrients. There are 15 vitamins, most of which cannot be made by the body and must be supplied in the diet. Vitamins are needed in very small amounts by the body, but when they are not provided, deficiency diseases may occur. These diseases are relatively rare in Western countries, but some are still common in less wealthy parts of the world. The vitamins can be divided into two groups. Vitamins A, D, E, and K are fat-soluble vitamins. Vitamin C...ascorbic acid, and the B-group vitamins, B1...thiamine, B2... riboflavin, B3...niacin, B6, B12, folacin, pantothenic acid and biotin, are water-soluble.
