• insulin
  • The autonomous nervous system strongly regulates their secretion, with parasympathetic stimulation stimulating insulin secretion and inhibiting glucagon secretion and sympathetic stimulation having opposite effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • genetic
  • Therefore, numerous other unidentified genes (or conceivably, epigenetic mechanisms) remain to be described to fully understand the pathogenesis of CHH, explaining the emergent idea that CHH is a complex genetic disease characterized by variable expressivity and penetrance. (minervamedica.it)
  • The genetic origin of this disease would indicate gene therapy holds the most promise for future development of a cure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Both diseases share the same genetic risk factors (HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 haplotypes). (wikipedia.org)
  • However, sufficient evidence in hormonal and regulatory disorders and genetic components were accumulated, pushing the condition into the "disease state" status. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pathways
  • Eicosanoids ► Derivatives of arachidonic acid Unsaturated FA ► ► Produced by MANY cells Unclear if hormone is the proper term May be autocrine/paracrine, too ► Produced by COX in response to cell damage Mediators of inflammation ► NSAIDS are COX inhibitors Many other activities Control of Hormone Release (p Control of Hormone Release 222) All endocrine reflex pathways have similar components Similar to PNS/CNS reflex pathway ► Stimulus / input signal ► Integration (where? (coursehero.com)
  • diffuse
  • As opposed to endocrine factors that travel considerably longer distances via the circulatory system, other signaling molecules, such as paracrine factors involved in paracrine signalling diffuse over a relatively short distance. (wikipedia.org)
  • branch
  • Permaculture - branch of ecological design and ecological engineering, which develop sustainable human settlements and self-maintained agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems. (wikipedia.org)
  • affects
  • The first defect observed in individuals who suffer from this condition affects the auditory system and is known as bilateral nerve deafness. (wikipedia.org)
  • Addison's disease affects about 0.9 to 1.4 per 10,000 people in the developed world. (wikipedia.org)
  • Crohn's disease affects about 3.2 per 1,000 people in Europe and North America. (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • This may be the result of either previously undiagnosed Addison's disease, a disease process suddenly affecting adrenal function (such as adrenal hemorrhage), or an intercurrent problem (e.g., infection, trauma) in someone known to have Addison's disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Camptocormia, also known as bent spine syndrome (BSS), is a symptom of a multitude of diseases that is most commonly seen in the elderly. (wikipedia.org)
  • neurological
  • Flynn-Aird syndrome is a rare, hereditary, neurological disease that is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although camptocormia is a symptom of many diseases, there are two common origins: neurological and muscular. (wikipedia.org)
  • This late age of onset is largely due to the increased preponderance of the conditions causing the symptom in older individuals - such as muscular weakness and neurological disorders like Parkinson's disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although the condition is sometimes a psychogenic manifestation, camptocormia typically originates from either muscular or neurological diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • processes
  • One way to increase therapeutic effectiveness is to refine treatment targets based on improved understanding of how treatments modulate disease processes. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • diagnosis
  • Diagnosis is based on a number of findings including biopsy and appearance of the bowel wall, medical imaging and description of the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • development
  • The current findings suggest that the cause of the disease could be narrowed down to one enzymatic defect that is involved in the development of neuroectodermal tissue, however the exact molecular mechanisms are currently unknown. (wikipedia.org)
  • Conditions
  • One of the final manifestations of disease is baldness.There is no evidence that the progression of Flynn-Aird syndrome shortens the patient's life-span, but the terrible conditions certainly increase morbidity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because of this bending and the physical limitations caused by the conditions associated with the disease, it is usually impossible for an afflicted person to achieve a fully erect position. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other conditions that can present similarly include irritable bowel syndrome and Behçet's disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • cancer
  • The results of the different studies showed good clinical responses and stabilization of the disease and suggested that sorafenib is a promising therapeutic option in patients with advanced thyroid cancer that is not responsive to traditional therapeutic strategies (such as radioiodine). (minervamedica.it)
  • Bowel obstruction also commonly occurs and those with the disease are at greater risk of bowel cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Checking for bowel cancer via colonoscopy is recommended every few years, starting eight years after the disease has begun. (wikipedia.org)
  • Skip
  • This is supported by the fact that the disease failed to skip generations even in the absence of intermarriages and that disease incidence was independent of sex. (wikipedia.org)
  • control
  • As core temperature varies from the set point, endocrine production initiates control mechanisms to increase or decrease energy production/dissipation as needed to return the temperature toward the set point (see figure). (wikipedia.org)
  • obesity
  • The AACE Board of Directors declared obesity a disease state in July 2011 and AACE was the primary sponsor of the resolution adopted by the American Medical Association House of Delegates in June 2013, officially recognizing obesity as a disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Following a report from the AACE Task Force on Obesity and a unanimous vote of the Board of Directors, AACE declared obesity to be a disease state in 2011. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 2013, the American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates approved a resolution agreeing with AACE's position that recognized obesity as a disease. (wikipedia.org)
