Alcohol as one of the Biological Cause of Apoptosis And Cirrhosis
1535 words 3 pages

Alcohol abuse specifically heavy drinking is a risk factor for many diseases and health problems. As a result, alcohol consumption has become one of the main contributors of the worldwide burden of disease. One of the major diseases caused by heavy and frequent alcohol consumption is liver cirrhosis. Liver is one of the largest and […]

HIV is a renowned lentivirus that leads to HIV infection and subsequently AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome). AIDS is a state in human beings in which the immune system’s progressive failure permits cancers and other opportunistic infections, which are equally life-threatening, to thrive. There are two types of HIV; HIV-2 and HIV- 1. HIV-1 is the […]

Treating Cancer With Electric And Magnetic Fields
1864 words 4 pages

Electric and magnetic fields are invisible components of radiation produced by the movement of electrons or current through a conductor. An electric field results from a voltage which serves as a force to push electrons through the conductor. The increase in voltage leads to increase in the electric field. On the other hand, a magnetic […]

Treating Cancer With Magnetic Fields
1458 words 3 pages

Introduction Cancer is defined by various scholars as a combination of diseases that cause abnormal growth of cells with the ability to affect other parts of the body. Magnetic fields refer to the effect created by a combination of electric and magnetic energies characterized by magnitude and direction. Research has shown that these magnetic fields […]

Targeting Senescent Cells
812 words 2 pages

When DNA is damaged, cells are equipped with mechanisms to repair the DNA. However, when these repair mechanisms fail to function, cells resort to independent stress-response mechanisms like apoptosis and cellular senescence. During apoptotic events, damaged cells are permanently removed. However, when cells undergo senescence, damaged cells are taken out of the cell cycle and […]

Immune System Suppression
1156 words 3 pages

Microcephaly in newborns is a condition associated with Zika virus (ZIKV), and is vertically transmitted from the infected mother. ZIKV disables the immune system of the fetus and then progressively acts to shut down neural cell proliferation, inducing microcephaly. Proliferation is interrupted via gene regulation, mitosis inhibition, and promotion of apoptosis pathways of neural progenitor […]

Peripheral immune cells including macrophages, neutrophils and T cells can initiate the inflammatory responses after SCI and finally can be higher level within few days. Macrophages and neutrophils can cause the growth of lesion and lead to damage tissue. By releasing cytokines (TNF, IL-1, IL-6, IL-10), macrophages and microglia can involve in the inflammatory reaction […]
