Aplicación de la arcilla preparada

Aplicación de la arcilla preparada     Aplicación Con una cuchara de madera, unte una capa uniforme de aproximadamente medio centímetro de espesor sobre el área a tratar. No trate de hacer la capa uniforme. La arcilla se asienta de manera natural una vez se aplica. Envuelva el área a tratar con una venda de tela ligera. Si se coloca sobre un órgano inflamado, absceso, u otra herida que este supurando pus, cubra la arcilla con una hoja de repollo para demorar un poco el proceso de secado. Si el área a ser tratada está en ambos lados del cuerpo, como los riñones, esparza la arcilla sobre una venda y envuelva la misma en el área a tratar. Deje que la arcilla haga su trabajo durante dos horas. Luego, remueva la arcilla con agua tibia y realice otra aplicación. Haga por lo menos tres aplicaciones diarias. Nunca utilice la misma arcilla mas de una vez. Si está tratando algún tipo de úlcera o una herida abierta, la arcilla debe ser colocada directamente sobre la piel. Mostrar detalle

Ebola-symptoms

People with Ebola may not always show symptoms

People with Ebola may not always show symptoms     A year after the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, researchers from the Stanford University School of Medicine and other institutions identified 14 individuals previously unknown to have had the disease in a Sierra Leone village that was an Ebola hot spot. These individuals had antibodies to the virus, suggesting they had been infected at one time. Yet 12 of these individuals said they had had no symptoms during the time of active transmission in the village. The research confirms previous suspicions that the Ebola virus does not uniformly cause severe disease, and that people may be infected without showing signs of illness, said Gene Richardson, MD, a former fellow in the Division of Infectious Diseases and Geographic Medicine at Stanford who is now a PhD candidate in anthropology at the university. The findings also suggest that the epidemic was more widespread than previously believed. Based on the results of the study, the researchers calculated the prevalence of minimally symptomatic infection to be 25 percent. "The study corroborates previous evidence that Ebola is like most other viruses in that it causes a spectrum of manifestations, including minimally symptomatic infection," Richardson said. "It provides important evidence on that front. It also means a significant portion of transmission events may have gone undetected during the outbreak. This shows there was a lot more human-to-human transmission than we thought." Mostrar detalle

About a dozen Vibrio species can cause human illness, known as vibriosis.

About a dozen Vibrio species can cause human illness, known as vibriosis.     Vibriosis causes an estimated 80,000 illnesses and 100 deaths in the United States every year. People with vibriosis become infected by consuming raw or undercooked seafood or exposing a wound to seawater. Most infections occur from May through October when water temperatures are warmer.

Endulzar para engordar o para quemar la glucosa

Endulzar para engordar o para quemar la glucosa     Una planta que durante siglos se ha usado en Paraguay y Brasil para endulzar, se puede encontrar en supermercados de buena parte de los paí­ses desarrollados. Ha sido anunciado como el edulcorante milagroso y el santo grial de la industria de la alimentación, debido a sus orí­genes naturales y sus aclamados beneficios para la salud. A pesar de que la stevia se ha estado vendiendo en Japón durante casi 40 años, no fue sino hasta 2008 que en Estados Unidos se aprobaron los productos con esta planta como un aditivo de la comida. En la Unión Europea no fue sino hasta 2011. Mostrar detalle

Two Genetic Markers that Predict Malaria Treatment Failure Found

Two Genetic Markers that Predict Malaria Treatment Failure Found     November 3, 2016 A frontline malaria treatment that combines fast-acting dihydroartemisinin with long- lasting piperaquine is quickly losing power in Cambodia due to the rapid spread of drug- resistant parasites. The presence of piperaquine-resistant malaria parasites in several Cambodian provinces was confirmed earlier this year by National Institutes of Health researchers and their colleagues. Now, by comparing the complete genomes of 297 parasites isolated from Cambodian malaria patients to a reference malaria parasite genome, the team has identified two genetic markers that are strongly associated with the parasites’ ability to resist piperaquine. A simple test, performed after collecting blood from a finger pinprick, can show whether a malaria patient has parasites with the genetic markers. If so, dihydroartemisinin- piperaquine therapy is likely to fail, say the study authors, and an alternative drug combination (artesunate-mefloquine) should be used. Information about the distribution of these drug resistance markers is being used by officials in Cambodia and neighboring countries to map the extent and spread of piperaquine resistance and to help guide region- wide malaria treatment approaches.

Blindness

Researchers may have uncovered a way to cure blindness

Researchers may have uncovered a way to cure blindness     Giving sight to the blind Visual impairment is still rather rampant, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Some 285 million people worldwide are considered visually impaired, and 39 million of them are blind. Thankfully, 80 percent of all visual impairment can now be treated or cured, except in cases of total loss of sight, particularly those due to severe retinal degeneration. But what if it’s possible to restore visual function to blind patients? Laboratory tests in the University of Oxford demonstrate how this may be possible. In a study published in the journal of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), the Oxford researchers led by Samantha de Silva showed how it’s possible to restore the sight of people suffering from blindness previously considered untreatable.

Disease Resistance Successfully Spread from Modified to Wild Mosquitoes

Disease Resistance Successfully Spread from Modified to Wild Mosquitoes     NIAID-Funded Group Assesses Mating of Genetically Modified Species September 28, 2017 Using genetically modified (GM) mosquitoes to reduce or prevent the spread of infectious diseases is a new but rapidly expanding field of investigation. Among the challenges researchers face is ensuring that GM mosquitoes can compete and mate with their wild counterparts so the desired modification is preserved and spread in the wild population. Investigators at Johns Hopkins University have engineered GM mosquitoes to have an altered microbiota that suppresses human malaria-causing parasites. These GM mosquitos preferred to mate with wild mosquitoes and passed along the desired protection to many generations of offspring. The research was funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health. Mostrar detalle

Hope. These tiny, light- activated nanomachines can kill cancer cells within minutes

Hope. These tiny, light-
activated nanomachines can 
kill cancer cells within 
minutes     Scientists have developed tiny, light-activated nanomachines that can drill into cancer cells and kill them within minutes. Last year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to three scientists who discovered how to build these nanomachines out of a chain of atoms. For a study published in the journal Nature, scientists built several of these nanomachines. When activated by light, the nanomachines targeted specific cells and broke through the membrane, rapidly killing them. Mostrar detalle
