Listening in on bacterial conversations could be the solution for improving chronic wound care, says a team of researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York. Their findings have been published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology. "Bacteria, often viewed as simplistic creatures, are in fact very sociable units of life, " said Alex Rickard, assistant professor of biological sciences. "They can physically and chemically interact with one another and are quite selective about who they hang out with. How bacteria might communicate in chronic wounds, however, was somewhat of a mystery." Working with researchers and physicians at the Center for Biofilm Engineering at Montana State University and the South West Regional Wound Care Center in Lubbock, Texas, Rickard and a team of undergraduate researchers were able to identify specific types of chronic wound bacteria and to test their ability to produce cell-cell signaling molecules.
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease - GERD symptoms are a plague to people who suffer from this disease. Some of the common GERD symptoms include the following: Persistent heartburn - Persistent heartburn episodes are one of the most commonly occurring GERD symptoms. Heartburn is an uncomfortable, burning sensation that reflux sufferers experience around their chest area. Heartburn normally occurs soon after a meal, after lying down or when the person is bent forward. There are some over-the-counter medications which may be used to ease the effects of heartburn such as antacids, H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors. Sour/ bitter taste in the mouth - Another common sign of GERD symptoms is the presence of a sour or bitter taste in the mouth of the patient suffering from reflux.
Children of parents who refuse vaccines are nine times more likely to get chickenpox compared to fully immunized children, according to a new study led by a vaccine research team at Kaiser Permanente Colorado's Institute for Health Research. The study was published in the January issue of the journal Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine. Funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, this is the first study to examine the relationship between parental vaccine refusal and the risk of varicella infection in children, adding to the body of knowledge on the risk of vaccine refusal. The study used electronic health records of more than 86, 000 children who were members of Kaiser Permanente Colorado between 1998 and 2008.
Sorry to inform you, that a little heartburn is not something you should overlook. It is a symptom of both acid reflux disease and GERD. If these illness are left untreated they can in due course lead to minor surgery to repair the damage, major surgery to remove your esophagus completely or even cancer, and we all know where the patients that have it usually end up. You can go to your doctor for help, but they can not tell you how to heal yourself; they do not know how to do it themselves. They will however offer you pain relief in the form of drugs or medications, which are totally un-natural and only exaggerate the medical condition over time.
Have you ever experienced having your stomach bloating and you feel like you're a puffer fish? It's not something you'd want to have every day. Fortunately, you can put an end to this little discomfort. But first, you must figure out what your "bloat triggers" are. Bloating Causes Generally, there are four possible causes as to why you have a bloated stomach. These are: Water Retention This cause of bloating is usually common in women and is hormone related - usually comes in the week prior to one's menstruation. If this is the cause, not only does the stomach bloat, but women may also tend to have puffy eyes and swollen ankles. This is brought about by the excess fluid that builds up in the spaces between cells which is the result when an imbalance occurs in the body.
