Gall Bladder Congenital Anomalies and the Treatment of Gall Bladder Disease

Gall bladder disease generally refers to the formation of gallstones inside the bile ducts, affecting the production of bile and the release of this substance when it is required in the process of digestion. In some cases, gall bladder disease may also involve bacterial infection of the biliary system. However, gallstones and bacterial infection of the biliary system are not the only causes of gall bladder disease. Although they are rare, congenital dysfunctions at the level of the gall bladder are considered to be major causes of gall bladder disease.

Parkinson’s Disease Condition Improves with Implantation of Brain Electrodes – Alleviate Symptoms Better than Medication

Parkinson’s Disease Condition Improves with Implantation of Brain Electrodes – Alleviate Symptoms Better than Medication

Researchers say that conditions for Parkinson’s patients can be improved by placing electrodes into their brains. They say this is better than maintaining the patients on the best available medicinal treatments.

This new study backs up brain stimulation as an effective treatment. UPI reports that about 60 percent of patients undergoing deep brain stimulation achieved significant improvement compared to no change for those patients on medicine in the randomized, controlled clinical trial.

Aspirin May Delay Enlarged Prostate – Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs Help Improve Symptoms

Aspirin May Delay Enlarged Prostate – Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs Help Improve Symptoms

Aspirin has been shown to benefit many aspects of health, and now it appears aspirin and ibuprofen may help stave off an enlarged prostate. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota say that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen may prevent or delay benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate).

Dr. Michael Lieber says “This study suggests that men’s urinary health may be improved by taking NSAIDs”. Lieber is a Mayo Clinic urologist and study investigator. He and his colleagues found the risk of developing an enlarged prostate was 50 percent lower in NSAID users compared to non-users, and risk of developing moderate to severe urinary symptoms was 35 percent lower.

Weight Loss - Carbohydrate protein causes excess Carbs to be Stored as Body Fat

alt text

A substance called ChREBP (carbohydrate response element binding protein) is a unique trigger that causes excess carbohydrates to be stored as fatty acids as body fat. The study was first published in the current issue of the American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism.

The study is a continuation of a five year old discovery of the ChREBP which is a separate acting trigger for fat storage. It was originally thought that Insulin was the only fat storage system in the body previous to this discovery.

Alzheimer’s Disease Progresses sooner when exposed to Stress Hormones

Alzheimer’s Disease Progresses sooner when exposed to Stress Hormones

Researchers found that elderly Alzheimer’s patients have faster progression of developing brain plaque when stress hormones are elevated. Glucocorticoids containing medicine may also be contributing to the decline in mental ability. The stress hormones can help accelerate the development of brain lesions that damage the brain. The study was first reported in this week's issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.

Frank LaFerla, professor of neurobiology and behavior, and a team of UCI researchers studied genetically altered mice by injecting them with dexamethasone, which is a glucocorticoid that is like the body’s stress hormones. Within only seven days of injection the mice brain had an increase of 60 percent more protein beta-amyloid which promotes protein fragments and plaque formation. There was also another protein called tau that increased in these mice. Tau contributes to the development of tangles in the brain which is also part of the destruction caused by Alzheimer’s disease.
