    Age is just a number !!! Eltaib, Muhammad Hussein Ageing can be defined as the time-related deterioration of the physiological (loss of muscle and bone mass, increase visceral fat ) and mental functions (decline in Cognitive, memory and motor performance). Ageing is mainly associated with the decrease of some hormones level such as sex hormones and growth hormone (GH). These hormones play a major role in normal human growth, metabolism and functions. Also, there is many factors or habits that affect human age like factors that cause cellular damage such as smoking and elevated free radicals that come from oxidative stress. […]

  • Nerve Cut? No Problem

    Nerve Cut? No Problem Alowami, Belkees Salem Spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord causing temporary or permanent changes in its function. Spinal sensorimotor networks disconnected from the brain due to SCI can be activated via epidural electrical stimulation (EES) to restore motor activity in humans with paralysis.1 Previously, there was a case of sensorimotor paralysis of the lower extremities where EES restored the ability to stand and the ability to control step-like activity while side-lying or suspended vertically in a body-weight support system (BWS). 2 Training in the presence of EES and multimodal rehabilitation (MMR), was performed for 43 weeks and resulted in stepping on a treadmill, independent from trainer assistance or BWS. It also enabled independent stepping over ground while using a front-wheeled walker with trainer assistance at the hips to maintain balance. This study presents a revolutionary change and a sense of hope to paralysed patients […]

  • Can nano-based immune technology be used to reduces organ transplant rejection?
    on January 29, 2019 at 12:00 am

    Can nano-based immune technology be used to reduces organ transplant rejection? Darz, Mohamed K. Nanotechnology exhibits new ways to attack the variable obstacles that organ and cell transplantations present. The induction of nanotechnology has showed successes including the recent use of nano-composite polymer as scaffolding for the synthesis of a successfully implanted artificial trachea. New developments in nano-materials such as the inclusion of bioactive properties, able to enhance cell growth and function, offer a promising future for today’s transplant therapies and could improve the prognosis of transplant patients.

  • No man's land! Why do Men Die Younger than Women?
    on January 22, 2019 at 12:00 am

    No man's land! Why do Men Die Younger than Women? Ali, Hibba Hassan Men have shorter life expectancies than women in most nations around the world. Gender is an important factor determining the source of health information used. Women are more likely to seek advice from peers, magazines, books, and the television than men. There are also differences in how men from different socioeconomic groups access and respond to information.(1) United States research shows that men with health problems are more likely than women to have had no recent contact with a doctor regardless of income or ethnicity. This reluctance means that men often do not seek help until a disease has progressed or lack of awareness may also contribute to late diagnosis and can have serious consequences. The effects of heart disease, the greatest cause of early male death. The incidence of these disease could also be reduced by better knowledge of risk factors such as male obesity. Here the question is how would we equal the gender gap in mortality.( […]
