  • Effects And Treatment Of Rheumatoid Arthritis - 1,113 words
    Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is more than just arthritis. In deed, many doctors call it rheumatoid disease to emphasize its widespread nature. People with RA often describe feeling much as though they have a virus, with fatigue and aching acting on their muscles. It has been estimated that 2 million Americans with 60% of them women, have rheumatoid arthritis (Brewer, Earl J, 2000). The condition usually appears in middle-aged people, in the forties and fifties, although it can begin at any age. Since RA is so common, and because it can sometimes be severe, it is a major international health problem (Lorig, Kate, 1995). It can result in difficulties with employment and problems with daily activi ...

    ... ions. Preparations with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 and which block both UVA and UVB rays are recommended. SLE is typically a disease which shows a fluctuating course characterized by long periods of relative inactivity (remission) punctuated by unpredictable flares of inflammation involving one or more organ systems (exacerbation). Fortunately for a majority of SLE patients, the symptoms are so mild as to require little or no specific treatment. The choice of therapy will therefore depend both on the nature as well as the severity of the symptoms. The initial treatment of minor joint aches and pains may often consist of simple anti-arthritic medications sometimes known ...

  • Euthanasia - 1,344 words
    At any one time, over 10,000 patients in Canada are in a permanently vegetative State (Bender, 34). In addition, thousands of profoundly handicapped infants are born each year. As life- sustaining medical technology continues to improve and lengthen the process of dying, those numbers will steadily increase. This, along with several other factors, is why euthanasia should be legalized throughout Allowing doctors to administer a lethal dose is much more merciful to dying patients than allowing them to die slowly and painfully from a terminal disease. Everyone must die. And almost everyone comes to a point where they, or a loved one, knows they are dying and must decide what to do. Euthanasia ...

  • Lupus - 1,168 words
    Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease which causes inflammation of various parts of the body, especially the skin, joints, blood and kidneys. The body's immune system normally makes proteins called antibodies to protect the body against viruses, bacteria and other foreign materials. These foreign materials are called ANTIGENS. In an autoimmune disorder such as Lupus, the immune system loses its ability to tell the difference between foreign substances (antigens) and its own cells and tissues. The immune system then makes antibodies directed against "self." These antibodies, called "auto-antibodies" react with the "self" antigens to form immune complexes. The immune complexes build up in the ...

  • Lyme Disease - 1,769 words
    Lyme disease is an illness caused by Borrelia burgdorferi, a member of the spirochete or spiral-shaped bacteria family. It was first officially recognized in the United States in 1975, after an unusual cluster of arthritis cases broke out in children from Lyme, Connecticut. What we now know as Lyme disease was reported in a grouse hunter from Taylor County, Wisconsin in 1969. It wasnt until 1979 that additional cases of Lyme disease were reported in Wisconsin. The bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi was not even identified until 1982. There are about 12,000-16,000 cases of Lyme disease reported each year in the United States. Lyme disease has been reported in almost every state in the country, al ...

The Bill of Rights protects an individual from the American Government. It embraces a theory that everyone has a right to pursue ones own vision of a good life. (Humber 54) This includes the right to make your own decisions regarding your own body. Without committing itself to the legality of the issue of PAS, the Supreme Court of the United States has recognized the right of privacy in individual choices. However, some lower courts have addressed the issue of PAS head-on. The Massachusetts Supreme Court in Superintendent of Belchertown State Sc ...

  • Inflammation - 1,910 words
    Inflammation is the bodies normal response to injured tissues, although it can sometimes lead to further tissue damage. It was first described around 30 BC by Celsius, as tumour (swelling), rubor (redness), calor (heat) and dolour (pain); although excess secretion and loss of function are now commonly added. Inflammation is a response which has evolved to try and put things right in a damaged tissue, for example the pain and loss of function allow the tissue to heal easier whilst the heat and redness are caused by an increased blood flow to the tissue. (1) Inflammation occurs to control infection or injury, to eliminate pathogens, and to initiate healing and tissue repair. (2) An inflammator ...

  • Stem Cells - 1,143 words
    Embryonic stem cells...are in effect, a human self-repair kit, (Christopher Reeve, activist Larry King show). For the advancement of science, stem cells are infinitely valuable, especially when considering all the potential applications in the field of medicine. Stem cells usage is a very controversial topic, because most people think of abortions, cloning, and other negative topics when they here the term stem cells. However I think those thoughts are because they dont understand what a stem cell is, where it comes from, or its monumental possibilities that could greatly benefit the medical field. There are already demonstrations of Stem cells possibilities, because treatment with stem cel ...

  • Stress - 726 words
    Over the years, many researchers have made it their top priority to uncover how both men and women react to stressful situations, and believe it or not, women may handle stress better than men. Many researchers believe that your response to stress may have to do with your gender than with the stressors you face (Hendrickson, 2000). Some of the stressors may include, the recent death of a loved one, physical illness, job stress, and many other things. But the most common stressor is financial worries-especially with men. It is often the traditional role of breadwinner which is the source of stress for most men (Channel 4, 2002). Not being able to provide for ones family can be a heavy burden ...

  • The Latest Advances In Drug Manipulations Of The Immune System - 2,121 words
    ... f cells. However, recent research suggests that autoimmune diseases maybe due to the dysregulation of the immune system, and that poor thymus functioning results in T4Helper cells losing control of humoral immunity so that antibodies lose their specificity and attack host cells (Beardsley, 1997). Thus immunomodulation in this area could be highly effective. It must be stated that this is merely a theory and that extensive testing is still needed in this area before such drugs can be used safely to treat these disorders. It would appear that immunomodulation is a new and exciting area to be explored with many potential benefits. A selection of these new drugs including levamisole, thymic ...

  • How Your Immune System Works - 1,145 words
    How the Immune System Works The immune system defends the body from attack by "invaders" recognized as foreign. It is an extraordinarily complex system that relies on an elaborate and dynamic communications network that exists among the many different kinds of immune system cells that patrol the body. At the "heart" of the system is the ability to recognize and respond to substances called antigens whether they are infectious agents or part of the body, which are called self anitgens. T and B Cells Most immune system cells are white blood cells, of which there are many types. Lymphocytes are one type of white blood cell, and two major classes of lymphocytes are T cells and B cells. T cells a ...

  • Medical Analysis Of Lyme Disease - 1,212 words
    I.The Bacteria- Borrelia Burgdorferi Lyme disease is caused by Borrelia burgdorferi, a spiral-shaped bacterium that is frequently carried by deer ticks of the genus Ixodes. Borrelia burgdorferi is named after its discoverer, Willy Burgdorfer, PhD. When the deer tick bites a human being, the bacteria are transmitted to the human bloodstream, where it travels throughout the body. Because the bite of the deer tick is usually painless and does not itch, most people do not recall the bite and so cannot trace the origin or the time of onset of the infection. Borrelia burgdorferi is a spirochete. Spirochetes are a group of phylogenetically-distinct procaryotes that have a unique mode of motility by ...

    Introduction There are more than 115 different types of arthritis. Some are very serious and hold the potential for severe disability and deformity, if left untreated. Others may generate only mild discomfort, which may be totally controlled with relative ease. Myths and misconceptions thrive everywhere. Despite the continued efforts of medical professionals, and The Arthritis Society, a large proportion of the population still believes that arthritis is nothing more that aches and pains, is never dangerous or fatal, is something only old people get , is caused by the weather, or is a disease for witch nothing can be done. Nothing could be further from the truth. Arthritis is much more than ...
