From early civilization to the present; medicine has tremendously advanced. Scientist have long proven that every human’s genome differs from one another. This also meant that medicines, treatments, and diseases affected everyone differently. So why would doctors use the standardized medicine for each individual person? Doctors, Scientist, and Engineers have studied and began practicing in personalized medicine.
The physical properties that we examined in this activity were state, colour, texture, clarity, shape, and hardness. We did this by examining each powder with a magnifying class once we placed it on the watch glass. My group and I determined that each of the powders state was solid, all of them were a white colour, and they were all opaque.
The Carb Rotation diet is a weight loss plan which was created by Jayson Hunter. This program is based on alternating or rotating the amount of carbs that you eat from one day to the next according to a special order. In this review, I'll help you learn all you need to know about this diet plan.
Creatine is a chemical that is normally found in a person’s muscles. It is made by the body and can also come from certain foods. This supplement helps the body make energy for the muscles to work. Creatine is known today as a sport enhancing supplement for athletes. Creatine comes from 3 amino acids. These amino acids are glycine, arginine and methionine. These amino acids form together to become a phosphocreatine. Creatine is used by athletes and body builders that are anaerobically fit to perform better during high-intensity activities. This supplement is often mixed with water or a sports drink and can be ingested as a pill or most commonly used as a powder (Fitness, 2013).
Dexmedetomidine dosing should be individualized and titrated to the desired clinical effect. For adult patients, Dexmedetomidine is generally initiated with a loading infusion of 1 (one) mcg/kg over 10 minutes, followed by a maintenance infusion of 0.2 to 0.7 mcg/kg/hr. The rate of the maintenance infusion should be adjusted to achieve the desired level of sedation. Dexmedetomidine is not indicated for infusions lasting longer than 24 hours.
December 26th, 2008 was the day this world lost one of the most inspiring, radiant and influential people to ever live. My precious aunt’s cause of death was one many are familiar with: cancer. I distinctly remember the deafening silence following the news, the seemingly unbearable pain while trying to grasp the concept, but also the overwhelming love and support that flooded inform family, friends, and the community. This situation paves the way to answer what sort of problem I would like to solve one day. I would love to be able to aid in the continuous search of a cure for cancer. As a seventeen-year-old lacking any sort of degree that could make me an ideal candidate for this sort of goal, curing cancer may seem a little farfetched. However,
Targeted therapy, which first became available in the late 1990s, has had a significant impact on the treatment of cancer. Currently, because of advancement in the field of technology, various types of therapies are discovered to treat cancer.
Breast cancer sometimes can be dealt with, but not all breast cancer is curable. However, the eradication of these diseases from the gene pool can save millions of lives and preserve the happiness of American citizens affected by this cancer. When breast cancer passes into a vital organ, the problem gets very serious. Gina Cook, who is a breast cancer survivor had to go through extensive surgery, she says “Because of my tumor 's size and it being in three out of 15 lymph nodes they removed from my arm, I began chemotherapy first to shrink the tumor.”(Cook) She then says, “Immediately I began three heavy and hard months of Chemotherapy. Throwing up so weak that I had to hold on to anything in sight to make it to my destination.” (Cook) Chemo therapy weakens the body leading to further damage. Chemo therapy and surgery both combined destroys the body. Chemo therapy causes loss of hair and weakness throughout the body. She went through chemotherapy to cure herself of breast
Chemoprevention is NOT a treatment for cancer however it is use of substances to reduce, stop or delay the development of cancer in the body. This can also be the act of being self-aware and understanding how and why cancer occur and actively taking measures to either prevent or stop occurrence. Chemoprevention involves taking substances either man-made (made in the lab) or natural. However, taking this substance might reduce the risk of cancer but might escalate other side effects. Therefore, before undertaking a method of chemoprevention consult your primary health physician and compare the pros against the cons.
The fact that there are beings totally capable of feeling pain and appreciating that their lives are going to end is absolutely beyond dispute for any reasonable person. They are innocent, they are suffering. I am speaking, of course, of the 20,000 human beings who die from cancer each day. The only way to make new medicines and effective treatments for them, unfortunately, is to test them on animals.
Dichloro acetate (also known as DCA) has been predicted by many scientists to be the potential alternative cure for cancer since it was found that it killed the human cancer cells in a rat. However some scientists are not sure yet as to whether the treatment is the best solution because the human being studies have not been completed yet. Some scientists are against it because of its harmful side effects such as nerve functions.

Did you ever blow balloons on your birthday, and the air accidentally escaped turning the balloon to its normal form again? This change is called a physical change. However, If you burned the balloon it’ll be a chemical change. Chemical change is any change that results in the formation of new chemical substances1. Meaning that it turns to a whole different thing, such as a paper burning and turning to ashes. Before it was a paper, now its ashes. Some environmental chemical change is forest fires, acid rains, and photosynthesis. Physical changes result from a change in the physical state of a substance.2The internal structure remains the same. Freezing something is a physical change because when you melt it the substance remains the same. Some
“Stainless steels have been discovered by England and Germany in 1910, but the practical application and production began in the United States in 1920. Until 1990, stainless steels were applied extensively and became more are more popular.” Nowadays, “it is not a doubt that stainless steels are an important class of alloys, and they are used in many different fields. In normal like cooking tools, even in complicated machine like space vehicles”
For some cancers, chemotherapy alone can destroy all the cancer cells and cure the cancer (primary treatment). As an adjuvant treatment, chemotherapy is given prior to, or after other methods, to increase the effectiveness of cancer treatment. Most often, adjuvant chemotherapy is given after other therapies have destroyed the clinically detectable cancer cells. The purpose of adjuvant chemotherapy is to reduce the risk of recurrence or to prolong survival. If cure is not possible, chemotherapy may be given to minimize the discomfort caused by cancer or slow the progression of the disease to prolong the patient's life (palliative treatment).
