(1/47319) Regional survey of femoral neck fractures.

In the South-west Thames Region 2619 patients (2105 women and 514 men) were discharged with a diagnosis of femoral neck fracture in 1974. The equivalent of a 250-bedded hospital was occupied throughout the year. The incidence, average length of stay, and mortality rate rose with increasing age and there were differences in these indices in the five health areas. These results confirm the enormous burden placed on the hospital service by patients with fracture of the femoral neck but suggest that differences in practice in the five areas may contribute to the size of the problem.  (+info)

(2/47319) Investigation of maturation requirements for Ostertagia ostertagi and Cooperia oncophora larvae.

Infection of parasite-free six to eight week old calves with doses of 50,000 mixed Ostertagia ostertagi and Cooperia oncophora larvae varying in age from seven to 42 days did not reveal a significant larval maturation requirement.  (+info)

(3/47319) Methoxyflurane nephropathy.

Investigations of methoxyflurane-induced nephrotoxicity in man have been extensively aided by the use of an animal model. To be of value the animal model must share similar metabolic pathways with man and have the same clinical manifestations of the diseases process. The Fischer 344 rat appears to meet these criteria. The predominant factors in the production of methoxyflurane nephrotoxicity appear to be high methoxyflurane dosage and serum inorganic fluoride concentration. It is likely that secondary factors include: (1) a high rate of methoxyflurane metabolism and sepsitivity of the kidney to inorganic fluoride toxicity: (2) concurrent treatment with other nephrotoxic drugs; (3) preexisting renal disease; (4) surgery of the urogenital tract, aorta, or renal vasculative; (5) repeat administration of methoxyflurane due to accumulation of inorganic fluoride and, perhaps, methoxyflurane induction of its own metabolism: and (6) concurrent treatment with enzyme-inducing drugs such as phenobarbital.  (+info)

(4/47319) Determination of human body burden baseline date of platinum through autopsy tissue analysis.

Results of analysis for platinum in 97 autopsy sets are presented. Analysis was performed by a specially developed emission spectrochemical method. Almost half of the individuals studied were found to have detectable platinum in one or more tissue samples. Platinum was found to be deposited in 13 of 21 tissue types investigated. Surprisingly high values were observed in subcutaneous fat, previously not considered to be a target site for platinum deposition. These data will serve as a human tissue platinum burden baseline in EPA's Catalyst Research Program.  (+info)

(5/47319) VEGF is required for growth and survival in neonatal mice.

We employed two independent approaches to inactivate the angiogenic protein VEGF in newborn mice: inducible, Cre-loxP- mediated gene targeting, or administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG, a soluble VEGF receptor chimeric protein. Partial inhibition of VEGF achieved by inducible gene targeting resulted in increased mortality, stunted body growth and impaired organ development, most notably of the liver. Administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG, which achieves a higher degree of VEGF inhibition, resulted in nearly complete growth arrest and lethality. Ultrastructural analysis documented alterations in endothelial and other cell types. Histological and biochemical changes consistent with liver and renal failure were observed. Endothelial cells isolated from the liver of mFlt(1-3)-IgG-treated neonates demonstrated an increased apoptotic index, indicating that VEGF is required not only for proliferation but also for survival of endothelial cells. However, such treatment resulted in less significant alterations as the animal matured, and the dependence on VEGF was eventually lost some time after the fourth postnatal week. Administration of mFlt(1-3)-IgG to juvenile mice failed to induce apoptosis in liver endothelial cells. Thus, VEGF is essential for growth and survival in early postnatal life. However, in the fully developed animal, VEGF is likely to be involved primarily in active angiogenesis processes such as corpus luteum development.  (+info)

(6/47319) Expression of Bcl-2 protein is decreased in colorectal adenocarcinomas with microsatellite instability.

Bcl-2 is known to inhibit apoptosis and is thought to play a role in colorectal tumour development. Studies of the promoter region of bcl-2 have indicated the presence of a p53 responsive element which downregulates bcl-2 expression. Since p53 is commonly mutated in colorectal cancers, but rarely in those tumours showing microsatellite instability (MSI), the aim of this study was to examine the relationship of bcl-2 protein expression to MSI, as well as to other clinicopathological and molecular variables, in colorectal adenocarcinomas. Expression of bcl-2 was analysed by immunohistochemistry in 71 colorectal cancers which had been previously assigned to three classes depending upon their levels of MSI. MSI-high tumours demonstrated instability in three or more of six microsatellite markers tested, MSI-low tumours in one or two of six, and MSI-null in none of six. Bcl-2 expression in tumours was quantified independently by two pathologists and assigned to one of five categories, with respect to the number of cells which showed positive staining: 0, up to 5%; 1, 6-25%; 2, 26-50%; 3, 51-75%; and 4, > or =76%. Bcl-2 negative tumours were defined as those with a score of 0. Bcl-2 protein expression was tested for association with clinicopathological stage, differentiation level, tumour site, age, sex, survival, evidence of p53 inactivation and MSI level. A significant association was found between bcl-2 expression and patient survival (P = 0.012, Gehan Wilcoxon test). Further, a significant reciprocal relationship was found between bcl-2 expression and the presence of MSI (P = 0.012, Wilcoxon rank sum test). We conclude that bcl-2 expressing colorectal cancers are more likely to be MSI-null, and to be associated with improved patient survival.  (+info)

(7/47319) Accelerated accumulation of somatic mutations in mice deficient in the nucleotide excision repair gene XPA.

Inheritable mutations in nucleotide excision repair (NER) genes cause cancer-prone human disorders, such as xeroderma pigmentosum, which are also characterized by symptoms of accelerated ageing. To study the impact of NER deficiency on mutation accumulation in vivo, mutant frequencies have been determined in liver and brain of 2-16 month old NER deficient XPA-/-, lacZ hybrid mice. While mutant frequencies in liver of 2-month old XPA-/-, lacZ mice were comparable to XPA+/-, lacZ and the lacZ parental strain animals, by 4 months of age mutant frequencies in the XPA-deficient mice were significantly increased by a factor of two and increased further until the age of 16 months. In brain, mutant frequencies were not found to increase with age. These results show that a deficiency in the NER gene XPA causes an accelerated accumulation of somatic mutations in liver but not in brain. This is in keeping with a higher incidence of spontaneous liver tumors reported earlier for XPA-/- mice after about 15 months of age.  (+info)

(8/47319) Dietary intake and practices in the Hong Kong Chinese population.

OBJECTIVES: To examine dietary intake and practices of the adult Hong Kong Chinese population to provide a basis for future public health recommendations with regard to prevention of certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoporosis. PARTICIPANTS: Age and sex stratified random sample of the Hong Kong Chinese population aged 25 to 74 years (500 men, 510 women). METHOD: A food frequency method over a one week period was used for nutrient quantification, and a separate questionnaire was used for assessment of dietary habits. Information was obtained by interview. RESULTS: Men had higher intakes of energy and higher nutrient density of vitamin D, monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but lower nutrient density of protein, many vitamins, calcium, iron, copper, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. There was an age related decrease in energy intake and other nutrients except for vitamin C, sodium, potassium, and percentage of total calorie from carbohydrate, which all increased with age. Approximately 50% of the population had a cholesterol intake of < or = 300 mg; 60% had a fat intake < or = 30% of total energy; and 85% had a percentage of energy from saturated fats < or = 10%; criteria considered desirable for cardiovascular health. Seventy eight per cent of the population had sodium intake values in the range shown to be associated with the age related rise in blood pressure with age. Mean calcium intake was lower than the FAO/WHO recommendations. The awareness of the value of wholemeal bread and polyunsaturated fat spreads was lower in this population compared with that in Australia. There was a marked difference in types of cooking oil compared with Singaporeans, the latter using more coconut/palm/mixed vegetable oils. CONCLUSION: Although the current intake pattern for cardiovascular health for fat, saturated fatty acid, and cholesterol fall within the recommended range for over 50% of the population, follow up surveys to monitor the pattern would be needed. Decreasing salt consumption, increasing calcium intake, and increasing the awareness of the health value of fibre may all be beneficial in the context of chronic disease prevention.  (+info)

Are birth defects such as Autism linked to genetic abnormalities and age increasing likelihood?


  • I read something that stated as a women ages the chance increases, however, my thinking is that if the gene is not in the pyramid the age factor would not be as likely to come into play. Please prove answer with links to research done by professionals. Any related link/comment is welcome.
  • Most autism is not a birth defect. The whole age thing is just one study that is not being considered important by most who are successfully reversing the symptoms of autism. Very few genetic abnormalities have been discovered in a small percentage of those with autism. I can not say the cause, only what is reversing symptoms: ridding pathogens and toxins. My children are recovered from autism. You can Google "abstract maternal age autism" or "abstract genetic autism" to find the studies you are looking for. But, to learn how to reverse autism symptoms, which does take quite a while, you will only get that answer from parents and doctors who have actually done it. How it is reversed is currently the closest clue as to how it develops.

what is the best to eat when you are preparing for pregnancy?


  • I m married for almost 2 years now.We were planning till date.But now we want a baby.So what is the best food intake for this??i m almost 28 now. I m scared about the age factor too.Will any special food diet help to conceive faster and without much hassles.
  • There are no "special foods" that can help you conceive. Just eat a healthy, well-balanced diet with plenty of fruits and veggies and whole grains. Limit your consumption of caffeine and alcohol, or cut them out completely. You can also take a prenatal vitamin. Also, remember that it takes two to conceive -- your partner should also be eating a healthy, well-balanced diet, and should also limit caffeine and alcohol. He should also avoid hot tubs/steam rooms and tight-fitting briefs. Your "age factor" should be minimal. Your fertility doesn't really start to decrease until age 35, so you have plenty of good years left. If you try unsuccessfully for 1 year, see a doctor for help. Good luck!


Is it naieve thinking to say that having 2 kids will be a breeze?


  • How much harder is it, REALLY, to have 2 kids instead of just 1? Does the difference in age factor in? Today I babysat an almost 13 month old and I also have an almost 13 month old.... I felt like it was really easy... I think just because I already know what to do and expect from a child that age, but I now have this in my head that it would be easy to have 2 kids.
  • What are you doing up late, young lady!? ;-) I think it's easier to have 2 kid of the _same age_, truthfully. They have the same needs, you can put them on the same schedule, etc. Having children that are in different age groups is a bit harder. They never want to eat at the same time (C eats anytime I sit him down, but I always hear from Em "No, I not hungry yet".). The oldest doesn't nap, so you never have a chance to be alone or clean. Bedtimes take twice as long because they have different bedtime routines. Going to town can sometimes be difficult because the baby will see his sister walking and then HE wants to walk (which just can't happen or we'd be in Walmart for hours..lol). However, it's not all bad (I've had a hard day, if you couldn't tell). The oldest can play better with the younger one, you can take your eyes off the younger one for a second or two because you know the oldest will let you know if some foreign object is about to stuck in a mouth, etc. Plus, there's nothing sweeter than seeing them snuggled up together while you read them stories. :) I've always heard it's a lot harder going from 1 to 2 kids than it is going from 2 to 3 kids, and I believe it.


How to cure secondary level bone cancer for a 68 years old patient?


  • My mom suffers from Secondary level bone cancer. She was having pain in the beginning say for about 2 months. We left it as it is bcoz of her age factor generally pain comes. But now on investigation we found it is cancer. We are not able to find out the primary level. Any medicines that can cure cancer? Now if she gets pain we give proxyvan and omez. She also consumes Amilodipin for BP. She has been given Radiation for only 7 days and doctors informed that is the final treatment that they can offer. Please help me.
  • Has she had a PET scan to try and find the primary cancer? If she has bone cancer that has spread from an unknown primary cancer then this is not a good situation. She has been given the radiation for palliative pain control in her bones and not as a curative treatment. Make sure her pain is treated properly as it will probably increase over time. Perhaps it is time to contact hospice or make other preparations to take care of your mother. Here is a good webpage about cancer of unknown primary so that you can better ask questions about treatment options of your mother's Drs. Make sure you have realistic expectations because there is no reason to make her sick from chemotherapy if the treatment will not produce remission or extend life span. good luck http://www.emedicine.com/med/topic1463.htm
