Retinopathy in Diabetic Pregnancy-IGF and Progression

Posted on

Retinopathy is of outmost importance in relation to conservation of the visual function and the quality of life. Diabetes mellitus is one of the main causes of blindness in the Western world. The mechanism by which pregnancy, diabetes, and retinopathy interact is by higher retinal flow and by circulating and vitreous IGF-1. Similar pathways may be suspected due to co-existence of vascular morbidity in the kidney and retina. Given the encouraging development of methods of diagnosing vascular morbidity, the aim is early to detect factors, which are responsible for further deterioration.

The Effects of Agility Type Sprint Interval Training and Continuous Training on Aerobic and Anaerobic Capabilities of Young Soccer Players

Posted on

The study aimed to investigate the effects of short agility type (SIT) and continuous training (CT) to enhance aerobic and anaerobic capabilities in young soccer players. 34 participants from two teams were evaluated. The SIT group (n=17) performed three to five sets of 3 × 40 m agility type maximal sprints. The CT group (n=17) performed 28 to 41 min of continuous forward running at 65% HRmax. Both groups trained two sessions a week.

A Screening Test to Determine Shoulder Stability in Adolescent Male Rugby Union Players: A Feasibility Study

Posted on

The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of a shoulder screening test to predict shoulder stability in adolescent rugby union players. Adolescent male rugby union players (n=27) aged 12-18 years were recruited from secondary schools in metropolitan Sydney. Measures of shoulder strength, active joint range of movement and joint hypermobility were recorded. The protocol used in this study was feasible for both participants and examiners. This screening test could be used to identify potential risk factors for shoulder injury.

A Network-Based Analysis of Proteins Involved In Hypoxia Stress and Identification of Leader Proteins

Posted on

Hypoxia arises in many pathophysiological conditions like hypertension, cancers, pre-natal birth and environmental conditions like high altitude, deep sea diving etc. The multivariate nature of this stress makes to it difficult to predict accurately susceptibility and adaptability to hypoxia. A large amount of expression data under hypoxic stress is generated and available in the public domain. However, there have been no systematic efforts to identify the key proteins and their molecular connectivity. In the present study, the proteins whose expressions are regulated under hypoxic-stress were identified and an interaction network was built. The interactions were given a significance score using the STRING database. For each protein, the scores were added up to obtain a weighted number of links (WNL) and….to know more please visit..http://www.scitechnol.com/abstract.php?abstract_id=4982

Effects of Acute Consumption of Garcinia kola on Hepatic Enzymes in Apparently Well Nigerian Youths

Posted on

Garcinia kola belongs to the Family Clusiaceae guttiferae and contains a complex mixture of biflavonoids, prenylated benzophenones and xanthone1. Its seeds, popularly called ‘Bitter Kola’, form an integral part of the herbal preparations used in traditional African medicine. A lot of studies have been done in animals to look at the effects of Garcinia kola on their organs, very few have been done in human beings. This study was done to look at the effect of acute consumption of Garcinia kola on hepatic enzymes in apparently well Nigerian youths. The response of aspartat…..to know more..http://www.scitechnol.com/abstract.php?abstract_id=4981

Omega 3 fatty acid found to stop liver damage from getting worse

Posted on

A new study done with laboratory animals suggests that one type of omega 3 fatty acid offers people, who are obese or have a poor diet, a chance to avoid serious liver damage. Supplements of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), one of the most critically important of the omega 3 fatty acids, were shown to stop the progression of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), into more serious and life-threatening health problems such as cirrhosis or liver cancer.
