INFLAMMATION of any ARTERIES.
A systemic autoimmune disorder that typically affects medium and large ARTERIES, usually leading to occlusive granulomatous vasculitis with transmural infiltrate containing multinucleated GIANT CELLS. The TEMPORAL ARTERY is commonly involved. This disorder appears primarily in people over the age of 50. Symptoms include FEVER; FATIGUE; HEADACHE; visual impairment; pain in the jaw and tongue; and aggravation of pain by cold temperatures. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed)

A syndrome in the elderly characterized by proximal joint and muscle pain, high erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and a self-limiting course. Pain is usually accompanied by evidence of an inflammatory reaction. Women are affected twice as commonly as men and Caucasians more frequently than other groups. The condition is frequently associated with GIANT CELL ARTERITIS and some theories pose the possibility that the two diseases arise from a single etiology or even that they are the same entity.

A dideoxynucleoside compound in which the 3'-hydroxy group on the sugar moiety has been replaced by an azido group. This modification prevents the formation of phosphodiester linkages which are needed for the completion of nucleic acid chains. The compound is a potent inhibitor of HIV replication, acting as a chain-terminator of viral DNA during reverse transcription. It improves immunologic function, partially reverses the HIV-induced neurological dysfunction, and improves certain other clinical abnormalities associated with AIDS. Its principal toxic effect is dose-dependent suppression of bone marrow, resulting in anemia and leukopenia.

Cerebral aneurysmal arteriopathy associated with HIV infection in an adult. (1/2)

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated cerebral aneurysmal arteriopathy is described in the pediatric medical literature and features diffuse fusiform aneurysms of the arteries of the circle of Willis. We present the first report (to our knowledge) of this disease entity in an adult, a 29-year-old woman with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome who presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage.  (+info)

Cerebral aneurysmal arteriopathy in an adult patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. (2/2)

In adult patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), cerebral arteritis usually takes the form of arterial wall thickening, stenosis, and occlusion, leading to cerebral ischemia and infarction. Aneurysms and intracranial hemorrhage are much less commonly associated with cerebral vasculitis. For reasons not entirely clear, this form is seen more often in pediatric patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus. We report an adult patient with cerebral aneurysmal arteriopathy who presented shortly after his AIDS-defining illness in a setting of severe immune suppression and high viral load.  (+info)

June 24, 2008 - By utilizing an automated system for measuring brain tissue with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), physicians may be able to more accurately diagnose Alzheimers disease at an earlier stage, according to a new study published in the July issue of the journal Radiology.. In Alzheimers disease, nerve cell death and tissue loss cause all areas of the brain, especially the hippocampus region, to shrink. MRI with high spatial resolution allows radiologists to visualize subtle anatomic changes in the brain that signal atrophy, or shrinkage. But the standard practice for measuring brain tissue volume with MRI, called segmentation, is a complicated, lengthy process.. Visually evaluating the atrophy of the hippocampus is not only difficult and prone to subjectivity, it is time-consuming, explained the studys lead author, Olivier Colliot, Ph.D, from the Cognitive Neuroscience and Brain Imaging Laboratory in Paris, France. As a result, it hasnt become part of clinical routine.. In ...

The aim of this paper is to outline a methodology to transform depth intervals into geological time intervals. Working in a geochronological system aids in the understanding of the physical properties of rocks and to do very precise correlations between wells. To transform the present coordinates a high resolution tool is necessary : the FMI® (Fullbore Formation MicroImager, Schlumberger). First, well log correlations are established between seven wells at different scales. Relative variations of sedimentation rate are observed locally. Second, FMI® images analysis are used to reveal clear carbonate - clay interbedding which display cycles. Third, to study these cycles, geostatistical tools are used. The variographic analysis of conventional log data shows cycles of one meter. With FMI® data, smaller cyles can be detected. Variogram modelling and factorial kriging analysis suggest that three spatial periods exist. They vary vertically and laterally in wells but cycle ratios are stable and similar to
A part of our nervous system is devoted to automatic things like breathing, sweating, and sleeping. These activities can happen without us thinking about them, and this part of our nervous system is called the autonomic nervous system. Within the autonomic nervous system, there are two opposing sub-systems that work together: sympathetic and parasympathetic.. The parasympathetic nervous system produces effects that often oppose the sympathetic nervous system that is, calming effects that are the opposite of fight or flight. It promotes activities such as digestion and sleep. The parasympathetic nervous system aids with digestion, plays a role in stomach and intestinal contractions, slows the heart rate and breathing during sleep, and is responsible for many other automatic or involuntary functions and responses.. ...

Downloadable! In this study, the linear approximate version of the Almost Ideal Demand System (AIDS) model is estimated using data from the Lithuanian household budget survey covering the period from July 1992 to December 1994. Based on the estimated coefficients of the model, Hossain and Jensen estimated price and real expenditure elasticities for 12 food groups. Estimated expenditure elasticities were positive and statistically significant for all food groups while all own-price elasticities were negative and statistically significant, except for that of eggs which was insignificant. Results suggest that Lithuanian household consumption responded to price and real income changes during the transition to a market-oriented economy.

The Prevention and Organizational Systems - AIDS Care and Treatment (Pro-ACT) project is a seven-year project (2009-2016) funded by USAID and implemented by MSH in five Nigerian states: Niger, Kwara, Kebbi, Sokoto, and Zamfara. Pro-ACT strengthens the capacity of Nigerias public, private, and community sectors for sustainable HIV/AIDS and TB prevention, control, care and treatment integrated within the health system.. HIV diagnosis of children exposed to HIV during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and breastfeeding requires the collection of dried blood spot (DBS) samples. The absence of a standardized logistic transfer system for these DBS samples in Nigeria has a huge effect on treatment outcomes for HIV-exposed infants, and subjects parents and caregivers to psychological strain while they await the results. Pro-ACT pioneered a new model for the transportation of dried blood spot (DBS) samples in collaboration with the Nigerian Postal Services.. ...
