But for those who stop, ponder and opt a redesign, here are some really useful tips that can help them live healthy, peaceful and long life. First off we ought to maintain our social lives as our forefathers or before sed to. Man is a social animal always seeking companions. Technology has tried to replace the human partners with artificial means but the efforts are not worth it. We need to make friends, trust our family members and let them trust us, marry, have children and let this natural process of aging socially take its due course.

Moreover we need to keep our bodies and mind in good shape. Diet with all the right ingredients is essential. Fruits, vegetables, legumes and lesser amount of meat are the best diet. People who live healthier consume more fish and chicken than other meats. Sitting most of the day is an evil in itself as our bodies are meant to burn energy moving purposefully and performing physical tasks. Lastly, water in-take and proper amount of sleep is the key to staying young and healthy. If your sleep is disturbed you are sure to host diseases.

Few tricks can really make a mammoth of a difference.

How To Counter Food Allergies?!

Food allergies are getting more common in the world and are immensely requiring attention from the researchers and laypeople alike. Especially, the problem is very common with children for the reason that their immune system is not used to tolerating what it identifies as foreigner to the body. With the passage of time and with careful exposure to different foods does the system learn what to accept and what to reject.

Here are some tips to ensure food allergies do not cause trouble:

  1. Keep medication with yourself all the time. Your doctor may prescribe a medicine that you can carry wherever you go.
  2. Keep your knowledge updated about your allergy and what triggers it. Read about it and read what else is related to it.
  3. Be aware of the ingredients present in all food items you use. Labels on the packets ay help.
  4. Keep your friends and families informed about your problem to ensure they keep away particular dishes when you are around.
  5. If the allergy is not fatal or very serious, you can gradually take some mild quantities to build some resistance. But NEVER do it without your doctor’s advice.

An Unusual Mimicker of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: A Case Report:::

TORJ-9-27_F1.jpg

We present a case of a 47 year-old African American female with 15 pack-years of tobacco use and heavy alcohol use who presented with arthritis and was found to have a positive antinuclear antibodies (ANA), anti double stranded DNA antibodies (anti-dsDNA), and anti-Sjogren’s syndrome-related antigen A and antigen B (anti-SSA and anti-SSB). She was subsequently found to have a lung adenocarcinoma associated with hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy (HPO). This demonstrates a case of positive antinuclear antibodies and arthritis in a patient with lung adenocarcinoma, which can be falsely diagnosed as systemic lupus erythematosus.

PHARMSCI-2-1_F1.jpg

Glaucoma is a second leading cause of blindness globally after cataract, which is managed through eye drops, which are highly inefficient due to a low bioavailability of less than 1-5%. Frequent administration of eye drops leads to incompliance in patients, so there is a great need for medical device such as contact lenses to treat glaucoma. The objective of research was to provide sustained ocular delivery of timolol via prototype poly (hydroxyethyl methacrylate) hydrogel contact lenses which may improve bioavailability due to increase in ocular residence time of drug. The present work was to encapsulate drug in ethylcellulose microparticles, and to entrap these microparticles in the hydrogel. Microparticles were prepared by spray drying method using different ratios of drug to ethylcellulose..

Most cited article::: The Three A’s in Asthma – Airway Smooth Muscle, Airway Remodeling & Angiogenesis

TORMJ-9-70_F1

Asthma affects more than 300 million people worldwide and its prevalence is still rising. Acute asthma attacks are characterized by severe symptoms such as breathlessness, wheezing, tightness of the chest, and coughing, which may lead to hospitalization or death. Besides the acute symptoms, asthma is characterized by persistent airway inflammation and airway wall remodeling. The term airway wall remodeling summarizes the structural changes in the airway wall: epithelial cell shedding, goblet cell hyperplasia, hyperplasia and hypertrophy of the airway smooth muscle (ASM) bundles, basement membrane thickening and increased vascular density. Airway wall remodeling starts early in the pathogenesis of asthma and today it is suggested that remodeling is a prerequisite for other asthma pathologies. The beneficial effect of bronchial thermoplasty in reducing asthma symptoms, together with the increased potential of ASM cells of asthmatics to produce inflammatory and angiogenic factors, indicate that the ASM cell is a major effector cell in the pathology of asthma. In the present review we discuss the ASM cell and its role in airway wall remodeling and angiogenesis.

Case Presentation of Concomitant and Contiguous Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumor and Focal Cemento-Ossifying Dysplasia

TODENTJ-9-340_F1.jpg

Journal: The Open Dentistry Journal

Abstract:

A 24 year-old male was presented for the diagnosis of an asymptomatic bony expansion in relation to the right maxillary canine and first premolar. The unilocular radiolucent lesion with central foci of calcification had caused divergence of canine and first premolar roots without any resorption. This case report details a diagnosis of two distinct disease processes of different cellular origin namely, focal cemento-ossifying dysplasia and adenomatoid odontogenic tumor in a previously unreported concomitant and contiguous relationship. The diagnosis was determined by a combination of clinical, radiographic, histopathological and surgical evidence. This case highlights two points, first the need to examine all mixed radiolucent-radiopaque lesions with advanced imaging techniques to assess the number and extent of the lesions prior to treatment planning. Second a likely role of periodontal ligament as the tissue source for odontogenic epithelial cells and mesenchymal stem cells required for the development of odontogenic tumors and cemento-osseous dysplasias.
