Chemicals 1) ZOCOR: helps to lower high cholesterol and triglyceride levels. ZOCOR belongs to a group of medicines known as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. It works by reducing the amount of cholesterol made by the liver. In terms of good and bad cholesterol, in most patients, ZOCOR reduces the bad cholesterol and can actually raise the good cholesterol. 2) FLONASE: is indicated for the short term (3-6 months) prevention and treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis including hayfever. Fluticasone propionate has potent anti-inflammatory activity but when used topically on the nasal mucosa has no detectable systemic activity. 3) PRILOSEC: The active ingredients Prilosec Delayed-Release Capsules i ...

- Digestion Of Cheetos - 1,003 words
Digestion Of Cheetos It's a typical day. After school you get home and you are starving, but you just want a snack. "What should I eat?," you ask yourself. Then, after looking through the cabinets for a few minutes, you find Cheetos and decide to eat a few. With just the presence of those Cheetos in your sight, the digestion process begins in your 9 meter long digestive tract. Crunch, Crunch, Crunch. As you munch on those first few Cheetos the digestion process begins in your mouth. Here, mechanical digestion begins to reduce the size of the Cheeto and mixes the food particles with saliva. The tongue helps mix and move the pieces of Cheeto throughout the mouth. The salivary glands in the mou ...

- Ebola Virus - 1,094 words
Ebola Virus Ebola virus, a member of the Filoviridae, burst from obscurity with spectacular outbreaks of severe, haemorrhagic fever. It was first associated with an outbreak of 318 cases and a case-fatality rate of 90% in Zaire and caused 150 deaths among 250 cases in Sudan. Smaller outbreaks continue to appear periodically, particularly in East, Central and southern Africa. In 1989, a haemorrhagic disease was recognized among cynomolgus macaques imported into the United States from the Philippines. Strains of Ebola virus were isolated from these monkeys. Serologic studies in the Philippines and elsewhere in Southeast Asia indicated that Ebola virus is a prevalent cause of infection among ma ...

- Leukocytes - 1,231 words
Leukocytes Leukocytes and the leukocyte differential count To consider the leukocytes together as a group is something of a granfalloon, because each type of leukocyte has its own function and ontogeny semi-independent of the others. To measure the total leukocyte count and allow this term to mean anything to the doctor is a travesty, yet the wbc count has traditionally been considered a cardinal measurement in a routine laboratory workup for just about any condition. I cannot emphasize too much that to evaluate critically the hematologic status of a patient, one must consider the individual absolute counts of each of the leukocyte types rather than the total wbc count. For such a critical e ...

... own as the corpus hemorrhagicum. Cells of the membrane granulosa are transformed into large granulosa lutein cells. Moreover, the cells of the theca interna also increase in size to become theca lutein cells, although they remain smaller than the granulosa lutein cells. Corpus Albicans (D) The corpus albicans is a corpus luteum that is in the process of involution a hyalinization. It becomes fibrotic with few fibroblasts among the intercellular materials. Eventually, the corpus albicans will become scar tissue on the ovarian surface. TESTES Capsule The fibromuscular connective tissue capsule of the testes is known as the tunica albuginea, whose inner vascular layer is the tunica vascul ...

- Nutritional Facts - 1,540 words
Nutritional Facts The first nutritional "fact" most Americans learn is that iron builds strong and healthy bodies.1 The beef lobby, cereal manufacturers, bread makers, and drug companies have bombarded the public with iron being the cure-all for fatigue and "iron-poor blood." People have been mislead by drug companies pushing iron supplements and by old-fashioned ideas about iron, the magical nutrient of strength. Even the cartoons of the past pushed iron as the secret ingredient in Popeye's spinach. Television advertisements used to urge people to "perk" up their "tired" blood with a liquid iron supplement called Geritol, but the Geritol ad was illegal. The Federal Trade Commission began an ...

Sexually Transmitted Diseases Sexually Transmitted Diseases: A Teen's Worst Nightmare Sexually transmitted diseases are infectious diseases that can be spread by sexual contact.

... ects that harm athletes. Anabolic steroids also have negative physical ramifications as well. Harmful physically effects of Anabolic steroids have a great effect on athletes. In the Merck Manual (1997) it states: The most characteristic sign of AS(anabolic steroids) abuse is dramatic and rapid change in the body bulk. If the patient is involved in a weight-training regimen and eats a high-calorie, high-protein diet while taking AS, an increase in muscle bulk and strength is usually produced. Increases in energy level and libido (in men) are established (www.merck.com). Not only do these symptoms mentioned above but, also in males' testicular shrinkage, reduced sperm count, infertility, b ...

The Immunology of Aids Introduction Although HIV was first identified in 1983, studies of previously stored blood samples indicate that the virus entered the U.S. population sometime in the late 1970s. Worldwide, an estimated 27.9 million people had become HIV-infected through mid-1996, and 7.7 million had developed AIDS, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). AIDS is a disease of the immune system, and is caused by Human Immuno deficiency Virus (HIV). HIV targets and infects T-helper cells and macrophages. After infection, replication of the virus occurs within the T-helper cells. The cells are lysed and the new viruses are released to infect more T-helper cells. The course of th ...
