Having the knowledge about the brain and its abnormalities that occur with this disease will provide physicians with more treatment and maybe a cure. According to Bronstein and Pulst animal testing such as immunization of beta-amyloid antibodies have been showing very promising results in the next step for a cure. The reason I choose to research this disease is because my grandmother is currently ailing from it. She is well into the latent stages of the disease, but the disease has not completely overtaken her.
However, there are many things that the disease has done to her normal capabilities. When my family first noticed that she was becoming more and more forgetful, we did not think much about it. As the disease progressed, we became more concerned for her safety. My grandmother takes medications for her other illnesses, and like most other Alzheimer patients she was starting to forget to take them.
My grandmother also drove up until her later years, which was not a safe idea for her or other drivers on the road. She once got lost and we had to go out searching for her.
A major tragedy was averted after we had to call the police and she was discovered after she backed her car into the side of her home. When confronting her on with these situations, she was able to make up excuses or she just easily denied that she did that.
She is not yet in the stage where she forgets who we are, but she does need to be reminded from time to time. A conversation with my grandma consists of a lot of repeating. One thing that I do notice in my grandmother that coincides with my research is that a majority of her forgetfulness is short-term memory loss.
When asking my grandmother about her childhood, or how she met my grandfather, she remembers it like it was yesterday. Not only does my grandmother have other health-related problems, she also lived alone for a while and has fallen causing great injury to her body. The worst occurrence of this happening is when she once fell in her kitchen and broke her hip.
At this point in her life, she was more disorientated than ever. We now have a nurse that stays with her to make sure that she is safe, but this is another issue for her because she feels that there is a stranger in her house. Possessing the knowledge that I now have is an advantage in being a preventable measure for me.
Being that this disease is genetic, my chances of having it are increased. Knowing all of this information about it will help me in the future to be able to detect it early so I can take the proper course of action that will delay the progression of this disease for me. It serves the perceived need of providing information that acts as the foundation for the assistance required of children who have…… [Read More].
Journal of Genetic Counseling. International Archives of Integrated Medicine. Brazil Zika Virus Epidemic. The Zika virus has come to the United States. A virus from the Flaviviridae, is spread via the A. Related to the West Nile, yellow fever, and dengue viruses, it spread eastward and eventually made its way to the Americas where it created the Zika virus epidemic.
While the virus itself does little to the person infected, it can have horrible and permanent consequences for the child that was born while exposed to the virus. Microcephaly is a common birth defect in babies exposed to the Zika virus. They may even be born with a partially collapsed skull. Babies exposed to the virus may also experience severe brain deformations leading to lifelong disability for the infant.
There is hope however. The Zika virus vaccine is in the works and people may receive vaccinations within…… [Read More]. Zika Vaccine Enters Clinical Trials.

How Are We Preparing? Disease Control and Prevention Cdc. BMR stands for basal metabolic rate. It generally refers to the body's metabolism at stasis: The BMR is the basic energy level needed to sustain life.
A person's basal metabolic rate usually decreases with age. The best way to increase the BMR is to exercise regularly. Eating less does not raise the BMR but rather, usually lowers it. Therefore, exercise is in many ways more important than eating less if a person hopes to lose weight. A higher body fat percentage is also correlated with a lower basal metabolic rate. Therefore, individuals with a lot of muscle mass tend to have higher basal metabolic rates than individuals who do not because muscles are metabolically more active than fat.
Fat is burned off when muscles are used, during intensive exercise when the intake of calories is less than the expenditure of energy. Paget's Disease of Bone In , Sir James Paget first described a disease that he had identified in a small number of patients who had been described as "having overly large heads and enlarged or deformed extremities with a higher likelihood of fracture. Huntington's Disease Huntington's Chorea. Huntington's disease, also known as HD, is an uncommon degenerative disorder that greatly impacts the central nervous system of the individual.
It is often characterized by surplus and unneeded choreatic movements, unusual behavioral patterns, disturbances in the mental level and dementia. Sheth As far as the Caucasian population is concerned, the Huntington's disease is prevalent in one out of ten thousand persons. The symptoms start to appear when the individual is thirty to fifty years of age. In a few cases, adolescents start to show symptoms of HD known as JHD or Juvenile Huntington's disease before the age of twenty by demonstrating behavioral disorders and learning difficulties at school.
However, chorea is the major sign of the onset of HD that spreads to all muscles with the passage of time. The affected individual becomes severely retarded as the psychomotor processes are affected gradually. Typhoid fever disease is a global health phenomena or problem with approximately 20 million incidents and , adult deaths every year.
Notably, a huge portion of these cases and deaths occur in developing countries, especially in South East Asia and Indian subcontinent. While the infection was traditionally treated with ampicillin, chloramphenicol, and trimethoprimsulfamethoxazole, serious public health program has emerged in the past decades because of the widespread emergence of antibiotic resistant Salmonella typhi or S. Moreover, typhoid fever disease caused by MD organisms can also be considered as a significant public health and therapeutic issue.
This is primarily because there are a huge number of cases of MD typhoid fever that occur in childhood and are coupled with considerably high mortality and morbidity rates. Since the disease has developed to become a significant public health issue in the past few decades, it's important to conduct a research about it and…… [Read More].

Polycystic kidney disease PKD is an inherited disorder distinguished by the growth of lots of cysts in the kidneys "Polycystic Kidney Disease" 1. In the majority of cases, this genetic disease is passed down through families as an autosomal dominant trait. If a parent is the carrier of the gene, there is a fifty percent chance for the children to develop the disorder "Polycystic Kidney Disease". The kidneys are two organs. Each kidney is about the size of a fist and is found in a human being's abdomen upper part towards the back.
Extra fluid and wastes present in the blood are filtered by kidneys forming urine as a result. Kidneys also help in the regulation of amounts of certain essential substances in the body. When cysts are formed in the kidneys, they are full of fluid. The normal structure of the kidneys thus becomes greatly enlarged due to the…… [Read More].
Measles Although measles has been almost completely eradicated from the Americas, dozens of cases still occur each year in the United States due in large part to transmissions of the disease from travelers returning from abroad. Because it is highly contagious, outbreaks of measles must be addressed as quickly as possible. This paper provides a review of the relevant peer-reviewed and scholarly literature to describe a communicable disease outbreak of measles, and the epidemiological indicators associated with the disease.
An analysis of the epidemiological data on the outbreak is followed by a discussion of the route of transmission of the disease causing the outbreak and how the attack could affect the community. Finally, an explanation concerning the appropriate protocol for reporting a possible outbreak is followed by an assessment of a community health nurse's role in modifying care of patients with asthma and other respiratory diseases when the…… [Read More].

Influenza Description of the Disease Influenza or "the flu" is a common illness in the winter months, all throughout the United States and many other countries. Both birds and all mammals can contract influenza Brankston, et al. In recent years there have been scares regarding "bird flu" and "swine flu," both of which are simply different strains of influenza.
The cause of the flu is an NA virus in the family Orthomyxoviridae Eccles, Once people contract the flu, they present with common symptoms such as chills, fever, a runny nose, muscle pains, a sore throat, and a headache.
The headache is quite often severe, and flu sufferers may also have weakness, fatigue, severe bouts of coughing, and a general feeling of overall discomfort. People with the flu can also become nauseated and vomit, although that is more typical in children and not nearly as common in…… [Read More].
Most recent statistics say that disorders in alcohol consumption afflict millions of people worldwide. The incidence has been increasing along with increasing alcohol consumption.
Alcohol liver disease takes the form of acute alcoholic hepatitis and chronic liver disease, such as steatosis, steatohepatitis, fibrosis and cirrhosis. Seriousness and prognosis depend on the amount consumed, the pattern of drinking and the length of time of consumption, the presence of liver inflammation, diet and nutritional and genetic disposition.
While steatosis is virtually benign, morbidity and mortality are both high in liver cirrhosis. Elephantiasis the Disease Commonly Known as Elephantitis. Elephantiasis The disease commonly known as "Elephantitis" is actually scientifically termed Elephantiasis.
It is a disease of the skin that is caused by a number of crucial factors which, when working in conjunction with one another, cause human tissue to thicken and swell. This paper will examine Elephantiasis, provide a background of the disease, and describe current methods of treatment. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Elephantiasis cannot occur without the help of a small parasite, which may be passed into the blood stream through contact with mosquito carriers.
Such parasites which assist in the onset of Elephantiasis are B. Yet, while these parasites help in the onset of the disease, they are not the sole cause. On the contrary, Elephantiasis requires a number of factors before it can actually develop. First, it requires the introduction of the parasite…… [Read More].

Huntington's Disease and Laboratory Investigation. HD is extremely debilitating, and if the patient lives long enough, the symptoms can become extremely severe. It is not uncommon for patients who suffer from the disease to suffer extreme depression and sometimes suicide, so developing medications that could delay or slow the disease are extremely important, and laboratory testing should definitely continue in this area.
Laboratory work in the past decades has helped develop a much deeper understanding of the disease. A group of writers note, "Within the last 4 decades, great strides have been made that have furthered our understanding of the neural bases of HD" Montoya, Price, Menear and Lepage This is also extremely important in the understanding and eventual eradication of the disease.
All of these results are extremely positive for families who know they suffer from the disease, and for hopefully preventing the disease in the future. Without laboratory testing and research, many…… [Read More]. Krabbe Disease Also Known as. Though there are state laws and federal laws that militate against discrimination at any levels, the application of this law is a challenge and the patients end up being discriminated against anyway. The victims will most likely end up in nursing homes where they will receive treatment but this separates them from the family life.
The other factor is the cost that weighs down the concerned people in terms of medical bills. It is a disease that is expensive to manage since there are numerous scans that one must get and the cost of specialized care doesn't make it any better. The good news however is that there are several organizations that have volunteered to help the victims of this disease like Hunters Hope which was purposefully formed to cater for patients of the disease in terms of support and information among many other organizations.
Huntington's Disease Correlation of Body. Creatine treatment started at 6, 8, and 10 weeks of age, analogous to early, middle, and late stages of human HD, significantly extended survival at both the 6- and 8-week starting points. Oral creatine supplementation significantly increased brain concentrations of creatine and ATP to wild-type control levels, exerting a neuroprotective effect.
These findings have important therapeutic implications, suggesting that creatine therapy initiated after diagnosis may provide significant clinical benefits to…… [Read More]. Alzheimer's Disease The Onset as. What is worth noting here is the fact that behavior disturbances, ranging in severity from repeated questioning to physical violence, are common National Institute of Mental Health, It is unclear whether Alzheimer's disease represents a single entity or several variants.
Some experts believe that there are distinct subtypes of Alzheimer's disease, such as Lewy body disease in which the signs of Parkinson's disease, visual hallucinations or alterations in alertness or attention, or all of these symptoms, are conspicuous and frontotemporal dementia in which disinhibition, misconduct or apathy, or all of these signs, are prominent. The well-established risk factors for Alzheimer's disease are age, a family history of the disease and Down syndrome National Institute of Mental Health, Confusions about Alzheimer's Disease and the Need for Alternative Actions There have been numerous studies conducted in relation to Alzheimer's disease.
At the same time, there are a number of reports…… [Read More]. How Huntington's Disease Affects Families. Huntington's disease affects families What is Huntington's disease, and how does it affect the patient and his family?
How does one deal with the patient? Is there any cure for the disease, and what is it? When was the disease discovered? Who discovered it, and how was it discovered? What way is support offered from external sources for the disease, and how can one avail of the support? What, exactly is Huntington's disease? It is a genetic disease that affects the central nervous system, in individuals who are thirty years and above, though it does occur sometimes in people younger than this.
When the disease occurs, it occurs as an inherited autosomal dominant condition, and it affects all or most of the family members within the same family. The onset of symptoms and of the rate of the progression of the disease may differ between the different family members, and…… [Read More]. Detection of the Borna Disease Virus Relating.

Lung cancer is a progressive illness: One puff of a cigarette does not cause cancer but the effects of smoking are manifested due to habituated use. As the population as a whole ages, rates of lung cancer have actually increased, despite an extensive anti-smoking public health campaign.
Here again mortality rises with age, in this instance is significantly higher in general among males as compared to females, and has a multitude of etiologies, although the consumption of tobacco products and exposure to second-hand smoke are important risk factors in the epidemic of this form of cancer" Williams n. Although smoking has gone down overall, lung cancer remains the most common deadly kind of cancer for both men and women. While the rates of mortality for men still are higher than that of women, the rates of women contracting lung cancer are increasing Newest stats show lung cancer rates dropping for men, but still going up for women, , Lung Cancer Alliance.
The reasons for this are unclear: Even though quitting reduces the likelihood of contracting lung cancer, the increased risk is not eliminated. To guard against the rise of lung cancer, graphic anti-smoking campaigns have been instituted by the federal government. Recent media campaigns have featured persons who have lost the ability to speak due to smoking-related cancers as well as reminders of the link between smoking and mortality Fox, , Graphic anti-smoking.
