Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Colon cancer, commonly grouped together with colorectal cancer, is cancer of the large intestine – the final portion of the digestive tract. It is the most common of all gastrointestinal cancers. Colon cancer usually starts from a small growth called a polyp. Polyps are very common, but most polyps do NOT become cancers. Polyps can be of various types, some of which are more likely to develop into malignant tumors than others. Early-stage colon cancer generally produces NO symptoms. Advanced-stage symptoms VARY depending on the location of the tumor, and may include: changes in bowel habits that PERSIST for weeks; blood in stool; abdominal pain and discomfort; constant feeling that the bowel doesn't empty completely; fatigue; and unexplained weight loss. EARLY detection is the key to prevent colon cancer. Because a PRE-cancerous polyp usually takes YEARS to develop into a malignant tumor, colon cancer can be EFFECTIVELY prevented with regular screening. There are 2 major types of screening tests: - Stool-based tests: stool samples are examined for signs of cancer, such as blood and mutated DNA. These tests are NON-invasive but LESS effective and need to be done more often. - VISUAL screening, such as colonoscopy, is more reliable and can be done every 5 or 10 years. Colonoscopy uses a long, flexible tube equipped with a camera and light, to VIEW the entire colon. If polyps or abnormal structures are found, surgical tools are passed through the tube to remove polyps or take tissue samples for analysis. Typically, any polyps found in the colon are removed during colonoscopy and examined for pre-cancerous changes, known as dysplasia. If high-grade dysplasia is detected, a follow-up colonoscopy is required to monitor the condition. Colorectal cancers are caused by MUTATIONS that INcrease the rate of cellular division. Some of these mutations can be INHERITED from parents. Examples of inherited colorectal cancers include: - Familial adenomatous polyposis, or FAP: a condition caused by mutations in the APC gene. The APC protein acts as a tumor SUPPRESSOR, keeping cells from growing and dividing too fast. Mutations in APC result in UNcontrolled cell division, causing HUNDREDS of polyps to grow in the colon. FAP patients usually develop colon cancer by the age of 40. - Lynch syndrome: another inherited condition caused by changes in genes that normally help REPAIR DNA damages. A FAULTY DNA repair results in INcreased rate of mutations. Patients are at high risks of colorectal cancer as well as other types of cancers. In most cases, however, the mutations that lead to cancer are ACQUIRED during a person’s life rather than being inherited. The early event is usually a mutation in the same APC gene that is responsible for FAP. While FAP is a RARE condition, APC mutations are VERY COMMON in SPORADIC colorectal cancers. Apart from genetic predisposition, other risks factors for colon cancer include: aging, high-red meat and low-fiber diets, obesity, alcohol use, smoking, diabetes, and inflammatory intestinal conditions, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.

does blood group determine cancer?
Could your blood group determine your risk of major cancers, infertility and stomach ulcers, as well as diseases such as cholera and malaria? For years, the idea that blood groups had any medical significance beyond blood transfusions was dismissed by scientists. It hasn’t been helped by the celebrity’s favourite, the ‘blood group diet’, which claims your blood type determines how your body responds to certain food.

The latest research into blood types shows that having group O blood can lower your risk of heart attacks. Researchers at Pennsylvania University discovered this benefit in a study involving 20,000 people. Their research, to be published in The Lancet, found that most people who have a gene called Adamts7 face a significantly raised risk of suffering a heart attack. But in people with blood group O who have the Adamts7, there is no raised risk. Dr Muredach Reilly, the lead researcher, says this knowledge may help to develop new therapies for people at risk of heart attacks. Such drugs may mimic the beneficial effect of the O blood group gene. Only 40 per cent of people in Britain know what their group is, according to the National Blood Service.

A/Prof Bernd Froessler discusses the importance of anaemia management in the perioperative period
In this seminar, which was held on March 30 2017 in Adelaide, Associate Professor Bernd Froessler (anaesthetist at the Lyell McEwin Hospital and an Associate Professor at the University of Adelaide) outlines the importance of managing iron deficiency and anaemia in the perioperative setting. Iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia are common conditions affecting a quarter of the world’s population. In patients presenting for non-cardiac surgery, iron deficiency with or without anaemia is found in up to 39% of patients. In certain subgroups of patients with conditions like colo-rectal cancer or heavy menstrual bleeding, the occurrence of preoperative anaemia has been found to be even higher. Anaemia, red blood cell transfusion and perioperative significant blood loss have all been established as adversely impacting clinical outcomes. Comprehensive patient blood management programs offering effective approaches for minimising perioperative blood loss and optimised patient care have been designed. Preoperative optimisation of anaemia appears to be a key aspect of patient blood management.
Colonoscopy of Diverticular Bleeding
Diverticular bleeding is a common cause of lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Patients typically present with massive and painless rectal hemorrhage. If bleeding is severe, initial resuscitative measures should include airway maintenance and oxygen supplementation, followed by measurement of hemoglobin and hematocrit levels, and blood typing and crossmatching. Patients may need intravenous fluid resuscitation with normal saline or lactated Ringer's solution, followed by transfusion of packed red blood cells in the event of ongoing bleeding. Diverticular hemorrhage resolves spontaneously in approximately 80 percent of patients. If there is severe bleeding or significant comorbidities, patients should be admitted to the intensive care unit. The recommended initial diagnostic test is colonoscopy, performed within 12 to 48 hours of presentation and after a rapid bowel preparation with polyethylene glycol solutions. If the bleeding source is identified by colonoscopy, endoscopic therapeutic maneuvers can be performed. These may include injection with epinephrine or electrocautery therapy. If the bleeding source is not identified, radionuclide imaging (i.e., technetium-99m-tagged red blood cell scan) should be performed, usually followed by arteriography. For ongoing diverticular hemorrhage, other therapeutic modalities such as selective embolization, intra-arterial vasopressin infusion, or surgery, should be considered. In patients with lower GI bleeding, the initial diagnostic procedure of choice is colonoscopy. During the procedure, the colonoscopist evaluates the colon for mucosal changes, infectious pathology, colitis, and ischemic changes to exclude these diagnoses. Colonoscopy should be performed within 12 to 48 hours of presentation and after colonic lavage with purge preparation (1 L polyethylene glycol solution every 30 to 45 minutes for at least two hours or until there is clear effluent). Colonic diverticula associated with bright red- to maroon-colored stool with clots are the most common findings on colonoscopy and are suggestive of, but not diagnostic for, diverticular bleeding in the absence of other pathologic findings. Active bleeding or stigmata of hemorrhage (visible vessel or pigmented protuberance) are identified in only 10 to 20 percent of colonoscopic examinations for diverticular bleeding. When present, these findings are associated with a high risk of continued or recurrent bleeding. The advantage of colonoscopy over other diagnostic modalities is direct visualization, allowing for exclusion of other etiologies of lower GI bleeding, as well as for immediate therapy. Colonoscopy is safe and effective, with a diagnostic yield of 69 to 80 percent in acute lower GI bleeding. Diverticular bleeding Diverticulitis is one main complication of diverticular disease of the colon. The other is diverticular bleeding. It occurs when a diverticulum erodes into the penetrating artery at its base. Because acute inflammation is absent, patients with diverticular bleeding don't have pain or fever. The most common symptom is painless rectal bleeding. Since diverticular bleeding occurs in the colon, it produces bright red or maroon bowel movements. (In contrast, when bleeding occurs in the stomach, the blood is partially digested as it passes through the intestinal tract, so it appears as black, tar-like bowel movements). In most patients, the bleeding is mild, and it usually stops on its own with bowel rest. But brisk bleeding is a life-threatening emergency. It requires expert hospital care with blood transfusions and IV fluids. It also requires aggressive attempts to locate the site of bleeding and to stop it. Several techniques are available; most experts recommend colonoscopy (doctors can see the bleeding artery through the scope and cauterize or clip it to stop the bleeding) or angiography (doctors thread a catheter into the artery that supplies blood to the colon, inject dye to see the bleeding artery on x-rays, and then inject medication to constrict the artery and stop the bleeding). If neither approach stops the bleeding, surgery may be needed.
HIV Transmission and Prevention Lecture for USMLE/NBDE/NCLEX/MDS
HIV Transmission and Prevention Lecture for USMLE/NBDE/NCLEX/MDS Activities That Put You At Risk for HIV Infection Sexual contact that involves semen, pre-cum, vaginal fluids or blood. Direct blood contact, particularly through sharing injection drug needles or 'works' (cotton, cookers, etc). Infections due to blood transfusions, accidents in health care settings or certain blood products. This is possible, although extremely rare, in the United States. Mother to baby (before or during birth, or while breastfeeding through breast milk) Sexual intercourse (vaginal and anal): Unprotected anal and vaginal intercourse are high-risk activities. In the penis, vagina and anus, HIV may enter through cuts and sores (many of which would be very small and hard to notice), or directly through the mucus membranes. Oral sex (mouth-penis, mouth-vagina): Oral sex is considered a low risk practice, but it’s not completely risk-free. The virus can't survive well in the mouth (in semen, vaginal fluid or blood), so the risk of HIV transmission through the throat, gums, and oral membranes is lower than through vaginal or anal membranes. Having an STI, cuts or mouth sores, recent dental work or bleeding gums may increase risk for HIV infection during oral sex. Sharing injection needles or works: Sharing needles or other materials used for injecting is considered a high-risk practice. Injection needles can pass blood directly from one person to another if you share them. If a person with HIV injects with a needle then shares it with another person, the second person is at very high risk for getting HIV. Mother to Child: Mother to child transmission is now rare in the U.S. and other high-income countries because pregnant women who are HIV-positive are normally given medications to prevent the fetus from getting infected. However, it is possible for an HIV-infected mother to transmit HIV before or during birth or through breast milk. Breast milk contains HIV, and while small amounts of breast milk do not pose significant threat of infection to adults, it is a risk for infants.

Transmission and Prevention of HIV
The modes of transmission of HIV are numerous. This animation describes the common and less common ways in which HIV can be transmitted from one person to another. While HIV is most commonly spread from an infected person through vaginal or anal intercourse, as well as intravenous blood exposure through the sharing of needles, there are practices and measures that you can take to help minimize the risk of becoming infected. HIV is spread only in certain body fluids from a person infected with HIV. These fluids are blood, semen, pre-seminal fluids, rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, and breast milk. In the United States, HIV is spread mainly by having sex or sharing injection drug equipment, such as needles, with someone who has HIV. To reduce your risk of HIV infection, use condoms correctly every time you have vaginal, oral, or anal sex. Don’t inject drugs. If you do, use only sterile injection equipment and water and never share your equipment with others. If you don’t have HIV but are at high risk of becoming infected with HIV, talk to your health care provider about pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). PrEP involves taking a specific HIV medicine every day to reduce the risk of HIV infection. How is HIV spread? The person-to-person spread of HIV is called HIV transmission. HIV is transmitted (spread) only in certain body fluids from a person infected with HIV: Blood Semen Pre-seminal fluids Rectal fluids Vaginal fluids Breast milk HIV transmission is only possible if these fluids come in contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or are directly injected into the bloodstream (from a needle or syringe). Mucous membranes are found inside the rectum, the vagina, the opening of the penis, and the mouth. In the United States, HIV is spread mainly by: Having anal or vaginal sex with someone who has HIV without using a condom or taking medicines to prevent or treat HIV Sharing injection drug equipment ("works"), such as needles, with someone who has HIV HIV can also spread from an HIV-infected woman to her child during pregnancy, childbirth (also called labor and delivery), or breastfeeding. This spread of HIV is called mother-to-child transmission of HIV. In the past, some people were infected with HIV after receiving a blood transfusion or organ or tissue transplant from an HIV-infected donor. Today, this risk is very low because donated blood, organs, and tissues are carefully tested in the United States. You can’t get HIV from casual contact with a person infected with HIV, for example from a handshake, a hug, or a closed-mouth kiss. And you can’t get HIV from contact with objects such as toilet seats, doorknobs, or dishes used by a person infected with HIV. Use the AIDSinfo You Can Safely Share…With Someone With HIV infographic to spread this message. How can I reduce my risk of getting HIV? Anyone can get HIV, but you can take steps to protect yourself from HIV infection. Get tested and know your partner’s HIV status. Talk to your partner about HIV testing and get tested before you have sex. Use this testing locator from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to find an HIV testing location near you. Have less risky sex. HIV is mainly spread by having anal or vaginal sex without a condom or without taking medicines to prevent or treat HIV. Use condoms. Use a condom correctly every time you have vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Read this fact sheet from CDC on how to use condoms correctly. Limit your number of sexual partners. The more partners you have, the more likely you are to have a partner with HIV whose HIV is not well controlled or to have a partner with a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Both of these factors can increase the risk of HIV transmission. If you have more than one sexual partner, get tested for HIV regularly. Get tested and treated for STDs. Insist that your partners get tested and treated too. Having an STD can increase your risk of becoming infected with HIV or spreading it to others. Talk to your health care provider about pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). PrEP is an HIV prevention option for people who don’t have HIV but who are at high risk of becoming infected with HIV. PrEP involves taking a specific HIV medicine every day. For more information, read the AIDSinfo fact sheet on Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). Don’t inject drugs. But if you do, use only sterile drug injection equipment and water and never share your equipment with others. I am HIV positive but my partner is HIV negative. How can I protect my partner from HIV? Take HIV medicines daily. Treatment with HIV medicines (called antiretroviral therapy or ART) helps people with HIV live longer, healthier lives. ART can’t cure HIV infection, but it can reduce the amount of HIV in the body. Having less HIV in your body will reduce your risk of passing HIV to your partner during sex. You can also talk to your partner about taking PrEP.

Colonoscopy Screening Questioned by Len Saputo, MD
The Journal of the National Cancer Institute published an article saying that colonoscopy for primary screening might be going too far. I agree! The benefits, harms, and costs have not been determined. Checking the stool for ocult blood and flexible sigmoidoscopy have been shown to be of value but there's no data showing that colonoscopy gives additional protection. Virtual colonoscopy is even more questionable as if there are abnormal findings one still has to do a colonoscopy and there's the issue of radiation damage and later cancer risk. Yet the American College of Gastroenterology and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network continue to recommend colonoscopy as a primary screening tool. Because of the obvious conflict of interest this is not very surprising. The benefits of colonoscopy is that 1 in 200 people will have a major benefit from the procedure. However the same number will have either a perforation of the colon or major bleed that requires transfusions. In addition colonoscopy misses a lot of right sided cancers even though it is recommended that all polyps are removed, even those that are of no danger. Screening for Colon Cancer No one wants to get colon cancer and colonoscopy has been touted to be the best way to find asymptomatic precanceous and cancerous lesions of the colon that could be lifesaving. This makes logical sense, however, the United States Preventive Services Task Force in now questioning this test for healthy people who have no GI symptoms.For more information, visit http://doctorsaputo.com/a/screening-for-colon-cancer

10 Diseases You Can Get Through KISSING!
10 Diseases You Can Get Through KISSING! Number 10: Gum Disease. The American Dental Hygiene Association (ADHA) reported that 80% of Americans have gum disease. The scary thought is that these statistics are only based on people who have had a dental screening. Can gum disease be transmitted through kissing? According to Dr. Mark A. Reynolds. Chairman of the periodontics department at the University of Maryland Dental School, the answer is yes. Research has found that the bacteria that cause gum disease can be passed from one person to another through saliva. Number 9: Cold Sores. Cold sores, or fever blisters, are caused by a herpes simplex virus or HSV-1. These small, fluid-filled lesions occur in the area around your mouth, most commonly on and around the lips. Cold sores are highly contagious and can spread through skin to skin contact like kissing, or contact with genital secretions. It can also spread by sharing a cup, eating utensils, or lip balm or lipstick with someone who has it. Number 8: Polio. Polio is a highly infectious disease caused by a virus. It invades the nervous system, and can cause total paralysis in a matter of hours. Among those paralysed, 5% to 10% die when their breathing muscles become immobilized. Symptoms include fever, limb pain, fatigue, headache and stiffness in the neck. Polio is spread through contact with stool from an infected person. Although less common, polio transmission occurs through contact with respiratory droplets or saliva. Number 7: Syphilis. Syphilis is a highly contagious disease spread primarily by sexual activity, including oral and anal sex. Occasionally, the disease can be passed to another person through prolonged kissing or close bodily contact. If left untreated, syphilis can cause serious and permanent problems such as dementia, blindness, or death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, new cases of syphilis have doubled between 2005 and 2013. In 2014, the number of new cases had risen to 19,999. Number 6: Mumps. Mumps is an extremely contagious viral infection of the salivary glands that most commonly affects children. The most obvious symptom is swelling of one or both of the salivary glands on the sides of the face. Complications can include encephalitis, meningitis, painful swelling of the testicles or the ovaries; pancreatitis; and hearing loss. The virus is spread through coughing, sneezing, kissing or sharing drinks, utensils, food or water bottles. Number 5: The Kissing Disease. Infectious mononucleosis, or mono, refers to a group of symptoms usually caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). It typically occurs in teenagers, but you can get it at any age. The virus is spread through saliva, which is why some people call it “the kissing disease.” The symptoms may include fever, sore throat, swollen lymph glands in the neck and armpits, headache, fatigue, muscle weakness, swollen tonsils, and night sweats. Number 4: Cytomegalovirus. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a disease caused by a type of herpes virus. The infection is spread through blood transfusions, organ transplants, respiratory droplets, saliva, sexual contact, urine, and tears. Symptoms may include These may include enlarged lymph nodes, especially in the neck, fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, malaise, muscle aches, rash, and sore throat. Number 3: Rubella. Rubella, also known as German measles, is a disease caused by the rubella virus. Although considered a mild illness, it can be very serious for pregnant women and their developing babies. Rubella is spread by contact with saliva or mucus from the mouth, nose or throat of an infected person. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, the virus spreads through droplets in the air. Sharing food, drinks or cigarettes, or kissing someone who has the virus can also put you at risk. Number 2: Hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is a virus (HBV) that infects the liver and can cause liver inflammation called "hepatitis." The virus is spread by contact with blood, semen, and vaginal secretions. It can spread from the mother to her child during birth. Common causes of transmission include unprotected sexual contact, sharing needles among injection drug users, re-use of contaminated needles and syringes, and sharing of razor blades or toothbrushes. Number 1: Bacterial Meningitis. Bacterial meningitis is a serious illness caused by germs that are usually passed from one person to another through coughing and sneezing, and through kissing, sexual contact, and contact with infected blood. Sharing eating utensils, glasses, food, or towels can also spread the bacteria. Although symptoms may vary, the more common signs and symptoms of meningitis include high fever, stiff neck, severe headaches, vomiting, discomfort of bright lights, drowsiness, and lack of appetite.

What is Chemotherapy-Induced Anemia?
Cancer treatments are targeted to destroy fast growing cancer cells. However, cancer treatments also harm healthy cells, especially cells that divide quickly. These include cells in the hair, blood, bone marrow, and reproductive organs. Bone marrow is a soft, spongy material inside the long bones that produce red blood cells. Red blood cells are the cells that carry oxygen to all other cells in the body. Since they only live for about 120 days, red blood cells are constantly being regenerated. Chemotherapy and radiation can impair the bone marrow's ability to produce red blood cells. When there are too few red cells circulating in the blood, the body does not receive enough oxygen. If the body is deprived of oxygen, symptoms of fatigue, dizziness and shortness of breath can develop. This condition is called anemia. Anemia is diagnosed with a simple blood test. If it is determined that you have chemotherapy-induced anemia, medicines such as erythropoietin are available. Erythropoietin, or EPO, is a naturally occurring hormone that is produced by the kidneys. EPO stimulates the body to produce red blood cells. A synthetic form of erythropoietin is available to treat anemia. If the red cell count gets too low, a blood transfusion may be necessary.

New Horizon for Pancreatic Cancer
As cancers go, pancreatic is one of the most dreaded. Its reputation, in part, is well deserved. As with most gastrointestinal cancers, they are difficult to detect and deal with. “The actual cancer itself tends to be more aggressive. So it’s more than just showing up late, it’s that they actually spread very early,” says Dr. Mark Bloomston, a surgical gastrointestinal oncologist on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. Dr. Mark Bloomston is the area’s first surgical specialist. He is using medical advances to better outcomes. “We’re seeing more and more imaging improvements where we’re able to look at the pancreas in higher detail, so we’re able to pick up on small abnormalities a little sooner. We’re starting to recognize what some of the high-risk precancerous lesions are just like you would have like a polyp in the colon that would then lead to a colon cancer. There are certain types of cysts within the pancreas that may become cancerous down the road,” says Dr. Bloomston. The difference maker in pancreatic cancer is whether or not it is localized enough to allow for surgery to adequately remove it. Once the cancer spreads it impacts nearby organs and tissue. All of which must be taken out. “We’ve learned over the years that we can do these big operations in a shorter period of time in the hospital, shorter period of time in the operating room, less blood transfusions, virtually no intensive care unit stay,” says Dr. Bloomston. Gains are also being made in drug therapies that may ultimately affect cure rates. “We’re seeing more and more response to certain types of chemotherapy that we can give that intense treatment to patients that we would never consider for surgery in the past and render them now surgical candidates,” says Dr. Bloomston. All steps forward, demonstrating hope is on the horizon for pancreatic cancer.

What is GASTROINTESTINAL BLEEDING? What does GASTROINTESTINAL BLEEDING mean? GASTROINTESTINAL BLEEDING definition - GASTROINTESTINAL BLEEDING meaning - GASTROINTESTINAL BLEEDING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Gastrointestinal bleeding (GI bleed), also known as gastrointestinal hemorrhage, is all forms of bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth to the rectum. When there is significant blood loss over a short time, symptoms may include vomiting red blood, vomiting black blood, bloody stool, or black stool. Small amounts of bleeding over a long time may cause iron-deficiency anemia resulting in feeling tired or heart-related chest pain. Other symptoms may include abdominal pain, shortness of breath, pale skin, or passing out. Sometimes in those with small amounts of bleeding no symptoms may be present. Bleeding is typically divided into two main types: upper gastrointestinal bleeding and lower gastrointestinal bleeding. Causes of upper GI bleeds include: peptic ulcer disease, esophageal varices due to liver cirrhosis and cancer, among others. Causes of lower GI bleeds include: hemorrhoids, cancer, and inflammatory bowel disease among others. Diagnosis typically begins with a medical history and physical examination, along with blood tests. Small amounts of bleeding may be detected by fecal occult blood test. Endoscopy of the lower and upper gastrointestinal track may locate the area of bleeding. Medical imaging may be useful in cases that are not clear. Initial treatment focuses on resuscitation which may include intravenous fluids and blood transfusions. Often blood transfusions are not recommended unless the hemoglobin is less than 70 or 80 g/L. Treatment with proton pump inhibitors, octreotide, and antibiotics may be considered in certain cases. If other measures are not effective, an esophageal balloon may be attempted in those with persumed esophageal varices. Endoscopy of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum or endoscopy of the large bowel are generally recommended within 24 hours and may allow treatment as well as diagnosis. An upper GI bleed is more common than lower GI bleed. An upper GI bleed occurs in 50 to 150 per 100,000 adults per year. A lower GI bleed is estimated to occur in 20 to 30 per 100,000 per year. It results in about 300,000 hospital admissions a year in the United States. Risk of death from a GI bleed is between 5% and 30%. Risk of bleeding is more common in males and increases with age.

Scientists Turn Skin Into Blood
In an important breakthrough, scientists at McMaster University have discovered how to make human blood from adult human skin. The discovery, published in the journal Nature today, could mean that in the foreseeable future people needing blood for surgery, cancer treatment or treatment of other blood conditions like anemia will be able to have blood created from a patch of their own skin to provide transfusions. Clinical trials could begin as soon as 2012. Source: McMaster Univ.

CAR -T therapy | new hope of cancer cureness | Nepali version
Chimeric antigen receptor, or CAR T-cell therapy, is a new form of cell therapy that uses specially altered T cells to more specifically target cancer cells. Currently, it is approved by the FDA for some forms of refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and pediatric relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), is available through clinical trial for other forms of blood cancer. CAR T-cell therapy, like all forms of cancer immunotherapy, seeks to sharpen and strengthen the immune system’s inherent cancer-fighting powers. It involves treating patients with modified versions of their own immune system T cells ­– white blood cells that help protect the body from disease. The collected cells are genetically engineered, at Dana-Farber or a special lab, to produce the CAR protein. They are then prepared for infusion back into the patient. The process of engineering the cells and producing sufficient quantities of them can take a few weeks. In the meantime, patients may receive chemotherapy for their cancer. When the CAR T cells are ready, patients are admitted either to Dana-Farber's Inpatient Hospital located within Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) or to BWH, where the cells are infused in a process similar to a blood transfusion, usually preceded by several days of preparative chemotherapy. During this time, patients may get medications to prevent and control possible side effects of the newly-engineered cells. At this time, patients need to stay in the hospital for a few days or even several weeks, depending on their condition and the risk of side effects.

Sexually Transmitted Infections
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), also known as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or venereal diseases (VD) are diseases that are passed on from one person to another through sexual contact - the infection can be passed on through vaginal intercourse, oral sex, and anal sex. Some sexually transmitted infections can spread through the use of unsterilized drug needles, from mother to baby during childbirth, or breast-feeding, and blood transfusions. Sexually transmitted infections have been around for thousands of years. The genital areas are generally moist and warm environments - ideal for the growth of yeasts, viruses, and bacteria. Microorganisms that exists on the skin or mucus membranes of the male or female genital area can be transmitted, as can organisms in semen, vaginal secretions, or blood during sexual intercourse. Examples of sexually transmitted diseases include: chlamydia chancroid crabs (pubic lice) genital herpes genital warts hepatitis B human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV and AIDS) human papillomavirus (HPV) trichomoniasis (parasitic infection) molluscum contagiosum pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) syphilis, gonorrhea trichomoniasis (trich) Sexually transmitted infections are more easily passed on during unprotected sex - without using safer sex options (i.e., condoms, dams, sanitizing sex toys). Some infections can be passed on via sexual contact but are not classed as sexually transmitted infections; for instance, meningitis can be passed on via sexual contact, but usually, people become infected for other reasons, so it is not classed as an STD. The WHO (World Health Organization) estimates that, worldwide, there are more than 1 million new STDs acquired each day. People aged 15-24 acquire half of all new STDs, and 1 in 4 sexually active adolescent females has an STD, such as human papillomavirus or chlamydia. Compared with older adults, individuals aged 15-24 have a higher risk of getting STDs. However, STI rates among seniors are increasing. Common sexually transmitted infections We take a look at some of the most common sexually transmitted infections below. Chlamydia Also known as chlamydial infection, chlamydia is an STI caused by Chlamydia trachomatis (C. trachomatis), a bacterium that infects humans exclusively. Chlamydia is the most common infectious cause of genital and eye diseases globally - it is also the leading bacterial STI. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), in 2015, nearly 3 percent of girls aged 15-19 had chlamydia. Women with chlamydia do not usually have signs or symptoms. If there are any, they are usually non-specific and may include: cystitis a change in vaginal discharge mild lower abdominal pain If chlamydia is left untreated, it may lead to the following signs and symptoms: pelvic pain painful sexual intercourse, either intermittently or all the time bleeding between menstrual periods You can learn more about chlamydia here. Chancroid Chancroid is also known as soft chancre and ulcus molle. It is a bacterial infection caused by fastidious gram-negative streptobacillus Haemophilus ducreyi and is characterized by painful sores on the genitals. It is only spread through sexual contact. Infection rates are very low in rich countries; it is more common in developing nations, especially among commercial sex workers and some low socioeconomic groups. This is due to the lack of access to healthcare services, the stigma attached to seeking help, a lack of sexual health awareness, and other factors. In 2015, just 11 cases of chancroid were reported in the United States. Chancroid increases the risk of contracting HIV, and HIV increases the risk of contracting chancroid. Within 1 day to 2 weeks after becoming infected, the patient develops a bump that turns into an ulcer within a day. The ulcer can be from 1/8 of an inch to 2 inches across, it is very painful, may have well defined, undermined borders, and a yellowish-gray material at its base. If the base is grazed, it will typically bleed. In some cases, the lymph nodes swell and become painful (lymphadenopathy). Women often have at least four ulcers, while men usually have just one. Males tend to have fewer and less severe symptoms. The ulcers typically appear at the groove at the back of the glans penis (coronal sulcus) in uncircumcised males, or, in females, the labia minora (small inner folds of the vulva) or fourchette (thin fold of skin at the back of the vulva). Chancroid is treated with a 7-day course of erythromycin, a single oral dose of azithromycin, or a

The most common cause of anemia is not having enough iron. Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that gives the red color to blood. It carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Anemia has three main causes: blood loss, lack of red blood cell production, and high rates of red blood cell destruction. Conditions that may lead to anemia include • Heavy periods • Pregnancy • Ulcers • Colon polyps or colon cancer • Inherited disorders • A diet that does not have enough iron, folic acid or vitamin B12 • Blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia, or cancer • Aplastic anemia, a condition that can be inherited or acquired • G6PD deficiency, a metabolic disorder Anemia can make you feel tired, cold, dizzy, and irritable.

The plant that makes cancer cells disintegrate within 48 hours
The plant that influences growth cells to break down inside 48 hours. They won't not be welcome in your yard, but rather things being what they are dandelions have huge potential with regards to helping individuals who are experiencing disease. Chemo-safe melanoma is currently the most widely recognized kind of disease influencing Americans matured 25 to 29. The main choice specialists can by and by offer these patients is surgery to expel the tumor and its environment, trailed by immunotherapy, which does not for the most part work when the melanoma has metastasized. Notwithstanding, every one of that looks set to change, because of a modest plant that many individuals haul out of their patio nurseries and discard. At the University of Windsor in Ontario, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has demonstrated that dandelion root concentrate can make human melanoma cells basically slaughter themselves without prompting any kind of harmfulness. Truth be told, their underlying examination saw growth cells deteriorating inside 48 hours, while sound cells stayed unaffected. The investigation was driven by Professor Siyaram Pandey, PhD. Concentrated dandelion root tea being utilized as a part of clinical trials:. These promising outcomes provoked the non-benefit association Mitacs to connect with AOR Inc., a Calgary organization that produces characteristic wellbeing items, so as to build up a dandelion tea powder that is essentially more grounded than that found in wellbeing sustenance stores. They achieve this by processing dandelion root, making a concentrate from it, and after that stop drying it into a powder that patients break up into boiling water and after that drink. AOR is creating 6,000 measurements of this tea for a clinical trial that will happen at the Windsor Regional Cancer Center, and will include 30 patients with different sorts of disease, including leukemia, who have not had accomplishment with customary treatment. An announcement on the site of the Dandelion Root Project at the University of Windsor says:. Since the beginning of this undertaking, we have possessed the capacity to effectively survey the impact of a straightforward water concentrate of dandelion root in different human disease cell writes, in the lab and we have watched its adequacy against human T cell leukemia, constant myelomonocytic leukemia, pancreatic and colon tumors, with no harmfulness to non-malignancy cells. Besides, these adequacy thinks about have been affirmed in creature models (mice) that have been transplanted with human colon growth cells. Specialist and medicinal oncologist Dr. Caroline Hamm said that some of her patients have noted changes subsequent to drinking dandelion root tea from wellbeing sustenance stores. The concentrated tea could end up being much more powerful, possibly sparing endless lives. Dandelion could help battle various malignancies:. A recent report distributed in the International Journal of Oncology demonstrated that dandelion tea decreased bosom and prostate disease cells. A consequent report in a similar diary demonstrated that a dietary supplement that contained dandelion stifled the development of prostate malignancy cells. Dandelion separates have likewise exhibited their adequacy in treating bosom tumor and leukemia in conventional Chinese solution and additionally in Native American medication. Dandelion has a lot of different advantages, as well:. The advantages of dandelions don't end there. The root can likewise animate the emission of bile, soothe hypersensitivities, lessen cholesterol and scrub the liver. What's more, it contains high measures of Vitamin An and Vitamin K.

About 85% of people are Rh positive. Yet, if the woman is Rh negative and the man who she conceives with is Rh positive, there is an increased risk that their child will develop some health issue. Blood type and illnesses. Depending on the health issue or condition, every single blood type can be less or more susceptible to it so you should find out your own risks and try to reduce them. Blood type and nutrition. You should know your blood type in order to know the foods which are beneficial for your health, and which ones to avoid. Therefore, blood type A individuals should focus on eating more vegetables. For the people with blood type O is recommended consume more proteins in the form of fish and meat, and the ones with AB blood type should focus on lean meat and seafood. Finally, those ones who belong to the type B should consume more red meat. Blood antigens. Blood antigens can be present in the blood, digestive tract, lungs, and nostrils, in the mouth and the colon. Blood type and stress. Individuals with blood type O need more time to relax after a stressful situation than others. Blood type and weight problems. The blood type can also determine if one will have a belly fat or not, as blood type, 0 people are more susceptible to it, and with blood type A do not suffer from such issues in general.

intussusception & rectal prolapse LYKA PET CLINIC & SURGICAL CENTRE DINDIGUL
A SEQUELAE TO IMPROPER DEWORMING INTUSSUSCEPTION AND RECTAL PROLAPSE ON A 35 DAY OLD GSD PUPPY DONE UNDER ISOFLURANE INHALENT (GAS) ANAETHESIA @ LYKA PET CLINIC & SURGICAL CENTRE - DINDIGUL SURGICAL CORRECTION BY 1. ENTERCTOMY ( is a surgical procedure used to remove a portion of the intestine) 2. INTESTINAL ANAESTOMOSIS ( is a surgical procedure to establish communication between portions of the intestine) 3. COLOPEXY (is a surgical procedure in which the colon is attached to the abdominal wall and secured) 4. ENTROPLICATION (adjacent loops of intestine are sutured to each other to prevent recurrence) Intussusception is the telescoping or invagination of one intestinal segment into the lumen of an adjacent segment. Rectal prolapse is a protrusion or eversion of the rectal mucosa from the anus This poor pooch was presented very late with severe anemia & low haemoglobin. This pup underwent complicated surgery with very safe gas anaesthetic protocol & blood transfusion. But this poor pooch succumbed to this ailment & poor condition. Intussusception Intussusception is the sliding or telescoping of the intestine within itself. It occurs primarily in the small intestine but may occasionally occur in the large intestine. When the intestine slides within itself the blood supply to that section is greatly reduced and the tissue begins to swell and then die. The entire process can occur rapidly, which makes early detection and treatment essential. Which animals are more prone to intussusceptions? Puppies and kittens are the most likely ones to develop intussusception although it can occur in any age or species. There does not appear to be a specific breed predilection. What causes intussusceptions? There are several conditions that predispose a dog to developing an intussusception. Many of these conditions affect the motility of the intestine. Intussusception is seen more commonly in puppies carrying large numbers of intestinal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, or whipworms. Viral (e.g., parvovirus in puppies) or bacterial gastroenteritis is another common cause. Pieces of plastic, bone or wood in the intestine of a dog can lead to the development of intussusception. Tumors or recent abdominal surgery may also contribute to the development of this condition. What are the symptoms of intussusception? When the small intestine telescopes into itself, movement of intestinal contents is partially or completely blocked, therefore, the dog or cat commonly vomits. Once the gastrointestinal tract behind the intussusception empties, stools are scant to none. Any fecal material that is passed is jelly-like, may be bloody, and not well formed. The appetite will be greatly depressed. The animal experiences severe abdominal pain, and eventually shock and then death. How is intussusception diagnosed? Diagnosis is usually tentatively made based on the symptoms and the palpation of a firm sausage-shaped mass in the abdomen. Diagnosis is confirmed with x-rays (usually using barium) and possibly exploratory surgery. What are the risks associated with an intussusception? An intussusception is serious; left untreated, it will result in death. As the intestines telescope into one another, pressure restricts blood flow to the area. Portions of the intestines therefore may actually die, and toxins and bacteria may be released into the rest of the body. What is the treatment of intussusception? Treatment consists of either surgically 'sliding' the telescoping portion of the intestine apart, or complete surgical removal of the intussusception. The size of the intussusception, amount of damage to the tissues, and the length of time the animal has had the condition will dictate which procedure is used. Post surgically the animal will have to go through a normal recovery period. If the intussusception is caught soon enough and the animal undergoes a successful surgery, most will recover completely. One recent study suggested that up to 25% of dogs that develop an intussusception would have a reoccurrence in the future. There is a surgical procedure called 'enteroplication' in which the loops of intestine are attached to one another and thus reduces the incidence of reoccurrence in some pets. What can be done to prevent an intussusception? If the owner follows good deworming and vaccinating programs as well as preventing access to foreign bodies, the incidence of intussusception can be reduced. Early recognition and treatment of other intestinal diseases can also help minimize the chance of an intussusception. Finally, if the owner recognizes the symptoms of an intussusception early, and the animal receives prompt veterinary care, most animals can be successfully treated.

jackfruit benefits for health | Scientist reveal the most powerful cancer destroyer
Jackfruit benefits for health | Scientist reveal the most powerful cancer destroyer In general terms, jaca (or yaca) is rich in phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, as well as proteins, carbohydrates and fiber. And something very important, it does not contain cholesterol or saturated fat, so it is an excellent option to add to your diet and make the most of it. Jackfruit benefits for health are so efficient thanks to the compounds found in it, such as phytonutrients, saponins, isoflavones and lignans and its benefits against cancer prevent the formation of free radicals and tumors in the body. Phytonutrients Phytonutrients are essential in order to prevent the initial formation of cancer cells. If you are already dealing with stomach ulcers, the jackfruit will do wonders for you when it comes to improving, fighting and preventing the disease from recurring. What is surprising is that there are over 10,000 types of phytonutrients that have their own specific health benefit for the body. For now, only 3 types of phytonutrients have been investigated and are known to prevent cancer. The saponins Saponins are also strong anti-cancer agents according to a 1995 study in the Journal of Nutrition, saponins have been shown to have many properties that prevent colon cancer. These phytonutrients are also capable of inducing mitotic arrest of leukemia cells. In case of cancer; However, they function by binding to the cancer cells and thus prevent them from growing. Isoflavones and lignans Both of these nutrients are phytoestrogens, which means they are able to bind to estrogen receptors. However, these phytonutrients are also capable of reducing the risk of endometrial cancer. A 2006 study of 500 randomly selected women has shown that the group of women who had the most lignans and isoflavones in the jackfruit had the lowest cancer rates compared to the other groups. Cellular DNA protection As we mentioned earlier, the jackfruit is packed with antioxidants that keep your cellular DNA protected from any kind of direct damage from free radicals as well as mutations. However, anti-cancer properties do not stop there! Apart from antioxidants, the amount of fiber contained in this fruit is enormous. This makes jackfruit an incredible colon cleanser because it removes and removes toxins from your digestive tract and thus reduces the risk of colon cancer. Strengthens the immune system Apart from anti-cancer properties, there are still tons of essential minerals and vitamins that stimulate the immune system in every way and improve digestion. I mean, you do not need more information right? Nutritional value of the jackfruit So in conclusion, if you want to significantly reduce the risk of colon cancer and improve your health in many ways, I recommend you include this incredible fruit in your diet. When it comes to nutritional value, a cup of jackfruit juice contains 155 calories and only 4 calories are fat calories. Apart from that it also contains an extremely low amount of cholesterol, sodium and saturated fats. And it contains some extremely healthy essential elements, such as niacin, vitamin A and C, riboflavin and thiamine folate, also iron, magnesium, manganese, zinc, selenium, calcium, phosphorus and even simple sugars that work wonders for your health. As I mentioned above only 1 cup of jackfruit will provide your body with 11% of the daily amount of fiber so do not stop in a cup!

Shara Goff's Road to Recovery - Nebraska Medicine
It all started with a cold. No big deal. Having a cold was nothing new for Shara Goff. After being diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of eight, the 39-year-old was used to a weakened immune system. But, suddenly, this cold started to feel different than the rest. "I was losing weight and noticed that my urine was changing colors," says Goff. "I knew that I needed to see my primary care doctor at Nebraska Medicine." After scheduling an appointment, lab results showed Goff had low white blood cell counts, low platelets and elevated liver levels. Doctors immediately ordered more tests. "I'll never forget it. I was admitted to the med center on December 14, 2011 and placed in isolation because of the risk of infection," remembers Goff. "I spent the holidays in the hospital." On New Year's Eve, Goff was transferred into the care of Mojtaba Akhtari, MD, an oncologist/hematologist at the med center. He ordered a bone marrow biopsy, which confirmed, Goff had Aplastic Anemia, a rare blood disorder that affects 600-900 people in the United States each year. Only about 20 percent of those diagnosed survive past 18-20 months due to the risk of infection. "When we treat aplastic anemia, we use a specific drug called Anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) which tries to suppress the immune system and help the bone marrow recover," explains Dr. Akhtari. "But, some patients can develop infections, and that's exactly what happened with Shara." In March 2012, Goff developed a staph infection and pneumonia. Doctors had to remove parts of her lungs and she was intubated. After making it through the surgery, Goff spent the next four months at the hospital. "When I was finally discharged, they sent me to a rehab facility," says Goff. "Being bed ridden, and having arthritis, I had to learn how to walk all over again." Within her first week at rehab, Goff's recovery took an unexpected turn. She developed Clostridium difficile, an infection of the bowels, and doctors had to perform a fecal transplant to save her life. Goff became only the second person to have the surgery done at the med center. Weeks after the fecal transplant, Goff got sick again. Doctors discovered she had a small bowel obstruction and another lung infection. Further testing showed she had C. difficile again, and her weight drastically dropped to 95 pounds. Goff's condition continued to get so severe, some recommended she consider hospice. But, Dr. Akhtari wasn't ready to give up. He reached out to a physician with the National Institutes of Health and tried getting Goff on an experimental drug called Promacta. "Shara's insurance rejected the drug three times, but I insisted and they finally agreed," says Dr. Akhtari. "Promacta helped stabilize her condition." By the spring of 2013, Goff was doing much better, and Dr. Akhtari decided to try another round of ATG combined with Cyclosporine, an oral med that treats Aplastic Anemia. "When I first got sick two years ago, I received the horse ATG med with the cyclosporine," explains Goff. "This time, Dr. Akhtari decided to try the rabbit ATG med with the cyclosporine." Within a month, Goff was starting to feel like her old self. For the first time in 16 months, her white blood cells were increasing -- which meant, she didn't have to wear a hospital mask everywhere she went. By Thanksgiving, Goff was infection-free and going longer between blood and platelet transfusions. Dr. Akhtari decided to schedule another bone marrow biopsy for early 2014, and the results surprisingly shocked everyone. "It showed my bone marrow functioning at an average of 30 percent," smiles Goff. "The last bone marrow biopsy I had a year ago showed my bone marrow functioning between 5-10 percent. I'm so blessed to receive the quality of care I have at Nebraska Medicine. It truly is an amazing place." As Goff continues to improve, Dr. Akhtari has mentioned the possibility of doing a bone marrow transplant for long-term results. But right now, he wants her to focus on living in the moment. "I think Shara is able to have a normal life," assures Dr. Akhtari. "She can start working full-time, start driving, enjoy being with friends and pursuing happiness. That's the life everyone is entitled to." "I know it sounds cheesy, but every day is such a gift," says Goff. "I don't take it for granted. Everything from here on out is icing on the cake."

10 Silent Killer Diseases You Must Know
10 Silent Killer Diseases You Must Know 1. High Blood Pressure A person suffers from high blood pressure, also called hypertension, when their blood pressure reading is 140/90 mm Hg or higher. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 70 million American adults, which means 1 out of every 3 adults, have high blood pressure. 2. Diabetes Diabetes is a condition that requires constant monitoring. There are two types of diabetes. • In Type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce any insulin. • Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which your body is unable to make enough insulin, or cannot use it properly. 3. Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a common heart disease caused by plaque buildup in the walls of your arteries. Too much plaque buildup narrows the arteries over time, which could partially or totally block the blood flow throughout your body. Over a period of time, CAD can also weaken your heart muscle, leading to heart failure. 4. Fatty Liver Disease Fatty liver disease is a condition in which the liver has difficulty breaking down fats, which causes a buildup in the liver tissue. There are two types of fatty liver disease– alcoholic liver disease and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. As the name suggests, alcoholic liver disease is caused by excessive alcohol consumption. The exact cause of nonalcoholic disease, is not known yet. 5. Osteoporosis Osteoporosis is a disease that leads to bone deterioration, making them thin and brittle. It is also a “silent disease” that often has no symptoms in the early stages. Thus, the early stages of osteoporosis are difficult to detect and diagnose. On top of that, this disease can strike at any age. 6. Colon Cancer Colon cancer is also a common silent killer. It is the third most common cancer in the U.S., with thousands of people diagnosed each year. A tumor in the rectum or colon rarely develops overnight. It often starts as a small growth known as a polyp. Most of these polyps are noncancerous, but when ignored or left untreated, some of them can turn cancerous after a few years. 7. Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer Nonmelanoma skin cancer develops slowly in the upper layers of your skin due to overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or sources of indoor tanning, such as tanning beds and sunlamps. A family history of this cancer, pale skin that burns easily, and a large number of moles or freckles may increase your risk. Men and people over 40 years of age are at even higher risk. 8. Chagas Chagas disease, or American trypanosomiasis, is a parasitic disease affecting 10 million people worldwide. It is caused when bitten by a bug known as the ‘kissing’ bug that carries the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi. In the initial stage of this disease, there are usually no symptoms even though a high number of parasites are circulating in your blood. 9. Hepatitis Hepatitis refers to an inflammatory condition of the liver and is a viral infection that affects thousands of people globally. Different hepatotropic viruses cause different types of this disease, including hepatitis A, B, C, D and E. Hepatitis A and E are caused by eating contaminated food or drinking contaminated water. Hepatitis B, C and D are contracted through transfusions of contaminated blood, sexual contact and during childbirth. 10. Cervical Cancer According to the World Health Organization, cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer and cause of cancer mortality in women, especially in developing countries.

AIDS Symptoms and Treatments
Human immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is a spectrum of conditions caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).[2][3][4] It may also be referred to as HIV disease or HIV infection.[5][6] Following initial infection, a person may experience a brief period of influenza-like illness. This is typically followed by a prolonged period without symptoms. As the infection progresses, it interferes more and more with the immune system, making the person much more susceptible to common infections, like tuberculosis, as well as opportunistic infections and tumors that do not usually affect people who have working immune systems. The late symptoms of the infection are referred to as AIDS. This stage is often complicated by an infection of the lung known as pneumocystis pneumonia, severe weight loss, skin lesions caused by Kaposi's sarcoma, or other AIDS-defining conditions. HIV is transmitted primarily via unprotected sexual intercourse (including anal and oral sex), contaminated blood transfusions, hypodermic needles, and from mother to child during pregnancy, delivery, or breastfeeding.[7] Some bodily fluids, such as saliva and tears, do not transmit HIV.[8] Common methods of HIV/AIDS prevention include encouraging and practicing safe sex, needle-exchange programs, and treating those who are infected.[9] There is no cure or vaccine; however, antiretroviral treatment can slow the course of the disease and may lead to a near-normal life expectancy. While antiretroviral treatment reduces the risk of death and complications from the disease, these medications are expensive and have side effects. Treatment is recommended as soon as the diagnosis is made.[10] Without treatment, the average survival time after infection with HIV is estimated to be 9 to 11 years, depending on the HIV subtype.

Hepatitis B
Subscribe to this channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKDwY2bhQtcMUZ3UFdN3Mng?sub_confirmation=1 Other Hepatology Lectures: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfBFwAwues0mECQ6y63vV-2OZIVSfbt2K Hepatitis B is an infectious disease caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) that affects the liver. It can cause both acute and chronic infections. Many people have no symptoms during the initial infection. Some develop a rapid onset of sickness with vomiting, yellowish skin, tiredness, dark urine and abdominal pain. Often these symptoms last a few weeks and rarely does the initial infection result in death. It may take 30 to 180 days for symptoms to begin. In those who get infected around the time of birth 90% develop chronic hepatitis B while less than 10% of those infected after the age of five do. Most of those with chronic disease have no symptoms; however, cirrhosis and liver cancer may eventually develop. These complications result in the death of 15 to 25% of those with chronic disease. The virus is transmitted by exposure to infectious blood or body fluids. Infection around the time of birth or from contact with other people's blood during childhood is the most frequent method by which hepatitis B is acquired in areas where the disease is common. In areas where the disease is rare, intravenous drug use and sexual intercourse are the most frequent routes of infection. Other risk factors include working in healthcare, blood transfusions, dialysis, living with an infected person, travel in countries where the infection rate is high, and living in an institution. Tattooing and acupuncture led to a significant number of cases in the 1980s; however, this has become less common with improved sterility. The hepatitis B viruses cannot be spread by holding hands, sharing eating utensils, kissing, hugging, coughing, sneezing, or breastfeeding. The infection can be diagnosed 30 to 60 days after exposure. The diagnosis is usually confirmed by testing the blood for parts of the virus and for antibodies against the virus. It is one of five main hepatitis viruses: A, B, C, D, and E. The infection has been preventable by vaccination since 1982. Vaccination is recommended by the World Health Organization in the first day of life if possible. Two or three more doses are required at a later time for full effect. This vaccine works about 95% of the time. About 180 countries gave the vaccine as part of national programs as of 2006. It is also recommended that all blood be tested for hepatitis B before transfusion and condoms be used to prevent infection. During an initial infection, care is based on the symptoms that a person has. In those who develop chronic disease, antiviral medication such as tenofovir or interferon may be useful; however, these drugs are expensive. Liver transplantation is sometimes used for cirrhosis. About a third of the world population has been infected at one point in their lives, including 343 million who have chronic infections. Another 129 million new infections occurred in 2013. Over 750,000 people die of hepatitis B each year. About 300,000 of these are due to liver cancer. The disease is now only common in East Asia and sub-Saharan Africa where between 5 and 10% of adults are chronically infected. Rates in Europe and North America are less than 1%. It was originally known as "serum hepatitis". Research is looking to create foods that contain HBV vaccine. Acute infection with hepatitis B virus is associated with acute viral hepatitis, an illness that begins with general ill-health, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, body aches, mild fever, and dark urine, and then progresses to development of jaundice. It has been noted that itchy skin has been an indication as a possible symptom of all hepatitis virus types. The illness lasts for a few weeks and then gradually improves in most affected people. A few people may have a more severe form of liver disease known as fulminant hepatic failure and may die as a result. The infection may be entirely asymptomatic and may go unrecognized. Chronic infection with hepatitis B virus either may be asymptomatic or may be associated with a chronic inflammation of the liver (chronic hepatitis), leading to cirrhosis over a period of several years. This type of infection dramatically increases the incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC; liver cancer). Across Europe, hepatitis B and C cause approximately 50% of hepatocellular carcinomas. Chronic carriers are encouraged to avoid consuming alcohol as it increases their risk for cirrhosis and liver cancer. Hepatitis B virus has been linked to the development of membranous glomerulonephritis (MGN). more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hepatitis_B
Symptoms of AIDS / HIV.   एड्स / एच.आई.वी के शुरुआती लक्षण क्या हैं ?
AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is a syndrome caused by a virus called HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). The disease alters the immune system, making people much more vulnerable to infections and diseases. This susceptibility worsens as the syndrome progresses. HIV and AIDS: What are they? HIV is the virus, which attacks the T-cells (CD-4 cells) in the immune system. AIDS is the syndrome, which appears in the advanced stage of HIV infection. HIV is a virus. AIDS is a medical condition. HIV infection can cause AIDS to develop. However, it is possible to be infected with HIV without developing AIDS. Without treatment, the HIV infection can progress and, eventually, it will develop into AIDS in the vast majority of cases. Once someone has received an AIDS diagnosis, it will always carry over with them in their medical history. CAUSES OF HIV AND AIDS HIV is a retrovirus that infects the vital organs and cells of the human immune system. The virus progresses in the absence of antiretroviral therapy (ART) - a drug therapy that slows or prevents the growth of new HIV viruses. The rate of virus progression varies widely between individuals and depends on many factors; These factors include the age of the patient, the body's ability to defend against HIV, access to healthcare, existence of other infections, the infected person's genetic inheritance, resistance to certain strains of HIV, and more. How is HIV transmitted? Sexual transmission - it can happen when there is contact with infected sexual fluids (rectal, genital, or oral mucous membranes). This can happen while having unprotected sex, including vaginal, oral, and anal sex, or sharing sex toys with someone infected with HIV. Perinatal transmission - a mother can pass the infection on to her child during childbirth, pregnancy, and also through breastfeeding. Blood transmission - the risk of transmitting HIV through blood transfusion is nowadays extremely low in developed countries, thanks to meticulous screening and precautions. However, among injection or IV drug users, sharing and reusing syringes contaminated with HIV-infected blood is extremely hazardous. Symptoms of early HIV infection Many people with HIV have no symptoms for several months to even years after becoming infected. Others may develop symptoms similar to flu, usually 2-6 weeks after catching the virus. The symptoms of early HIV infection may include: fever chills joint pain muscle aches sore throat sweats (particularly at night) enlarged glands a red rash tiredness weakness unintentional weight loss Asymptomatic HIV In many cases, after the initial symptoms disappear, there will not be any further symptoms for many years. During this time, the virus carries on developing and damaging the immune system and organs. Without being on medications to stop HIV's replication, this process can take up to 10 years on average. The infected person often experiences no symptoms, feels well, and appears healthy. Late-stage HIV infection If left untreated, HIV weakens the ability to fight infection. The person becomes vulnerable to serious illnesses. This stage of infection is known as AIDS. Symptoms of late-stage HIV infection may include: blurred vision diarrhea, which is usually persistent or chronic dry cough fever of above 100 °F (37 °C) lasting for weeks night sweats permanent tiredness shortness of breath (dyspnea) swollen glands lasting for weeks unintentional weight loss white spots on the tongue or mouth During late-stage HIV infection, the risk of developing a life-threatening illness is much greater. Life-threatening illnesses may be controlled, avoided,and/or treated with proper medications, often including HIV treatment. HIV and AIDS myths and facts There are many misconceptions about HIV and AIDS. The virus CANNOT be transmitted from: shaking hands hugging casual kissing sneezing touching unbroken skin using the same toilet sharing towels sharing cutlery mouth-to-mouth resuscitation or other forms of "casual contact" HIV blood tests and results Diagnosis is made through a blood test that screens specifically for the virus. If a person has been exposed to the virus, it is crucial that they get tested as soon as possible. The earlier HIV is detected, the more likely the treatment will be successful. A home testing kit can be used as well. After infection with HIV, it can take from 3 weeks to 6 months for the virus to show up in testing. Re-testing may be necessary. If the moment a patient was most at risk of infection was within the last 6 months, they can have the test immediately. However, the provider will urge that another test be carried out within a few weeks. AIDS treatments There is currently no cure for HIV or AIDS. Treatments can slow the course of the condition - and allow most infected people the opportunity to live a long and relatively healthy life.

The Cure for Aids
Acquired immune deficiency syndrome or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS or Aids) is a set of symptoms and infections resulting from the damage to the human immune system caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).[1] This condition progressively reduces the effectiveness of the immune system and leaves individuals susceptible to opportunistic infections and tumors. HIV is transmitted through direct contact of a mucous membrane or the bloodstream with a bodily fluid containing HIV, such as blood, semen, vaginal fluid, preseminal fluid, and breast milk.[2][3] This transmission can involve anal, vaginal or oral sex, blood transfusion, contaminated hypodermic needles, exchange between mother and baby during pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding, or other exposure to one of the above bodily fluids. AIDS is now a pandemic.[4] In 2007, an estimated 33.2 million people lived with the disease worldwide, and it killed an estimated 2.1 million people, including 330,000 children.[5] Over three-quarters of these deaths occurred in sub-Saharan Africa,[5] retarding economic growth and destroying human capital.[6] Most researchers believe that HIV originated in sub-Saharan Africa during the twentieth century.[7] AIDS was first recognized by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 1981 and its cause, HIV, identified by American and French scientists in the early 1980s.[8]

Colonic Diverticulosis and Diverticular Hemorrhage
Colonic diverticulosis predisposes individuals to lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage in up to 5% of cases. These sac-like protrusions are pseudodiverticula and arise due to a combination of anatomic, dietary, motility, and structural influences. In the setting of acute hemorrhage, patient stabilization takes priority, followed closely by maneuvers aimed at localizing and controlling blood loss. Through the use of an arsenal of tools including colonoscopy, angiography, and nuclear scintigraphy, most diverticular bleeds can be localized and subsequently controlled. When persistent and not controlled by colonoscopic or angiographic means, expeditious surgical resection serves as definitive therapy. PATHOGENESIS OF DIVERTICULAR BLEEDING The various colonic arterioles penetrate the muscular wall en route to the colonic mucosa. Sometime these arterioles can divide, with one branch penetrating the wall at the site of a diverticulum and the other branch passing external to the muscular layer and being displaced over the dome of the diverticulum. It appears likely that luminal traumatic factors, including chronic injury and impacted fecaliths which cause abrasion of the vessels, lead to the formation of ulcerations and erosions that ultimately result in hemorrhage. Structural changes occur in the wall of the affected vessel, with thickening of the intima and focal attenuation of the media. The anatomic basis for bleeding is thought to be asymmetric rupture of these intramural branches (the vasa recta) of the marginal artery at either the dome of the diverticulum or at its antimesenteric margin. Vessel disruption occurs on the mucosal side of the artery, as bleeding occurs into the lumen instead of into the peritoneal cavity. Inflammation is no longer the presumed underlying cause of diverticular bleeding as little or no inflammation is found in resected specimens and hemorrhage is rarely seen in the setting of acute diverticulitis. Diverticular hemorrhage is thought to occur in 3 to 5% of all patients with colonic diverticulosis, yet appears to cease spontaneously in up to 90% of patients. Transfusion of greater than four units of packed red blood cells is rare, with some data suggesting that when hemorrhage is limited to less than four units/day, bleeding stops in up to 99% of cases. After an initial episode of hemorrhage, rebleeding is likely to occur in 10% of patients in the first year; thereafter, the risk for rebleeding increases to 25% at 4 years. Emergency surgical intervention for ongoing massive hemorrhage is rarely necessary before attempts are made to localize the precise source of bleeding. This allows an orderly approach to identification of the bleeding site, which is essential for appropriate therapy. After the initial patient resuscitation and concurrent to the ongoing stabilization, diagnostic testing should begin. The choice of initial investigation remains controversial and depends on local availability of resources and expertise. "Urgent colonoscopy," completed within 6 to 12 hours of admission, is indicated in patients who have ceased to have ongoing significant hemorrhage and in whom resuscitation and hemodynamic stability have been achieved. The identification of the bleeding site is facilitated by cleansing the colon of clots, stool, and blood with a large-volume purge, most commonly administering 5 to 6 L of polyethylene glycol solution 3 to 4 hours before the colonoscopy. Patients presenting with massive ongoing lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage, which often compromises patient hemodynamics, are poor candidates for "emergent colonoscopy" as the procedure is technically difficult due to the inability to clear the mucosal surfaces of old or new hemorrhage. Finding a discrete, actively bleeding vessel in the unprepared bowel is difficult even for the most experienced endoscopist.

Saving Khloe's Eyes | Cincinnati Children's
When Khloe Cline was a toddler, her mother noticed something wasn't quite right with her vision. Alicia Gray would look her daughter’s eyes and see Khloe struggling to focus. The problem was more severe than Alicia expected. Doctors diagnosed Khloe with bilateral retinoblastoma, a rare cancer in the back of her eyes. Khloe began chemotherapy treatment at their local hospital in Indianapolis. Doctors told the family the next step would be radiation, which could destroy Khloe's eyesight. But they said specialists at Cincinnati Children's might be able to save her vision. Dr. Todd Abruzzo says he thought it was a longshot to salvage both of her eyes. But he developed a new technique for targeting chemotherapy to the eyes, using two catheters and a balloon in Khloe's arteries to direct blood flow so it would lead the chemotherapy directly to her tumors. Khloe's mom was worried. Dr. Abruzzo says he hopes the method will one day become the first line of treatment for targeting chemotherapy in children with these kinds of high-grade tumors. This procedure means families have another option, says Dr. James Geller, a retinoblastoma specialist at Cincinnati Children's. For Khloe and her family, it means Khloe, who wants to be a doctor when she grows up, can look forward to a bright future.
