FADS is a common genetic disorder and affects about 1 in 3000 pregnancies

FADS is a common genetic disorder and affects about 1 in 3000 pregnancies, and manifests itself in a number of ways – growth retardation, fetal hydrops , pulmonary hypoplasia and joint contractures . Studied a family in Oman, with four affected children and a history of multiple abortions gamma-subunitor the first time identified a genetic mutation on chromosome 2 which appeared to be involved. ‘The children in the family had contractures, a curved spine, and skin webbing ‘says Dr. Hoffmann. ‘When we think of the genetic mapping , we identified a mutation one of the subunits one of the subunits of the acetylcholine receptor Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter. It transmits signals from nerves, muscles, then move to an individual, the genetic changes we found seriously of this receptor of this receptor, indicating that the fetus does not move during pregnancy. ‘such a defect has several effects, since normal fetal movement is essential for normal fetal development and growth.

A set of a series of intravaginal gels.

A set of a series of intravaginal gels, rings and films the spread of AIDS the spread of AIDS, is not new, but it has reached an impasse. Few clinical trials clinical trials in Africa, and who have failed to stop transmission of the virus. This was either because they deliver antivirals were too weak or not long enough, or because the patients do not use simple. Similarly, some of the gels increased the risk of transmission, perhaps because it irritated the lining of the vagina, making immune cells concentrate, specifically in this area , which were then successfully by the virus.

Kiser said she think the gel other viruses and sperm should block: maybe it could be used as a contraceptive to treat infections caused by herpes viruses and HPV, the human papillomavirus to stop the causes cervical cancer. Continue reading

William G. Christen, Brigham & Women ‘s Hospital and saw Harvard Medical School, and Team dietary data of 35 20 percent of1 female health professionals who had taken over to the Women’s Health Study . The women were monitored for 10 years . The diets of women who developed cataracts with the diets of women who remained free cataract compared.

Such information will help to clarify the benefits of the additional use of lutein / zeaxanthin and reliable evidence on which to base public health recommendations for cataract prevention by vitamin supplementation. ‘.. The researchers report, 031 women developed cataracts during the period of ten years. They divided the women into five groups, depending on how much lutein and zeaxanthin they consumed. They found that – – The 20 percent highest consumers of vitamin E from foods / supplements, approximately 262.4 milligrams daily, had a 14 percent lower chance of developing cataracts, compared with the 20 percent lowest consumers, 4 milligrams per day consumed.
