Approximately 7.0% of the world’s population is thalassaemia carrier and an estimated 300,000 babies are born each year with this disorder. More than 80% of these births occur in low or middle-income countries. These countries have limited resources where priority tends to be given to combat high rates of infant and child mortality from infectious diseases and malnutrition (Weatherall, 2001). As a result, thalassaemia receive little
2014) and results in the presence of pores, called “giant vacuoles”, inside the endothelial cells (Johnson 2006). Supporting such pressure gradient may imply the low resistance of this endothelium layer to aqueous humor flow (Zeng et al. 2010). However, Schlemm’s canal endothelial cells have been previously reported to play a significant role in aqueous humor outflow resistance (Underwood et al. 1999; Alvarado et al.
First off sports can cause concussions, nearly 300,000 concussions occur a year. Second nearly 25% of people who get concussions are not given medical assistance. Lastly sports injuries are the most common way of getting a concussion. (Sources Paul Hornung Sues the Helmet Maker Riddell Over Concussionshttp://mrshatzi.com/files/paul-hornung-sues.pdf Belson July 7th 2016) Another reason competitive sports are not good for you is because you can get injured not just from concussions but serious
Sport currently is responsible of up to 25% of severe eye injuries1. Due to the importance of the eye, its injuries involve many ophthalmologists2 to diminish the number of visual impairment as a result of sport-related injuries3. Since a quantity of players interested in sport clubs is increasing all around the world4, the risk of eye injuries among them is growing at a fast pace accordingly. Consequently, there is a need to recognize the risk factors in connection with injury and try to minimize them5,6. The most severe form of these injuries might be the globe rupture.
Apte, Chang, Khuri-Yakub, Mioni, Nikoozadeh, Sarioglu & Zhuang (2014:107) states that CMUT are silicon micromachining processes with a ring shaped array utilized in intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) and IVUS. The ring shaped array provides the availability of a central endoscopic lumen through
The continuum model contain three distinct stages- reactive, disrepair and degenerative tendinopathies. The progression through each stage will inhibit the pathological areas ability to recover. Progression through the stages is dependent on load and internal factors such as genetics and other predisposed pathological illnesses such as including adiposity, cholesterol, insulin resistance, diabetes and menopause (cook and Bass et al 2007). Reactive tendinopathy is a short term response to acute overload and will lead to a inflammatory response. Proteoglycan contents within the extracellular matrix are increased however collagen will only undergo a small amount of change.
Guinea pig ileum was selected as tissue type and Acetyl choline as agonists. Then different amount of acetylcholine were added to the organ bath which produced different results and finally, a log – dose response curve for acetyl- choline was constructed with the X axis corresponding to drug dose (Drug concentration) and the Y axis corresponding to response (gms). Then we calculated for (ED50) and (ECR) with the help of the graph. RESULTS FOR ACETYLCHOLINE AND NON
This may be due to mechanical trauma (blunt or penetrating), thermal injuries,chemical agents or radiation.1 Ocular trauma is an important cause of visual impairment and a leading cause of preventablemonocular blindness.2 Worldwide there are approximately 1.6 million people blind from eyeinjuries, an additional 2.3 million people with bilateral low vision from this cause, and almost19 million with unilateral blindness or low vision.3The global pattern of eye injuries and theirconsequences suggest that 55 million eye injuries restricting activities more than one day,occur each year and 750,000 cases will require hospitalization each year.3,4Data from the National Centre for Health Statistics' Health Interview Survey, conducted in1977, estimated that nearly 2.4 million eye injuries occur in the United States yearly.5 Thisreport also estimated that nearly one million Americans have permanent significant visualimpairment due to injury, with more than 75% of these individuals being monocularly blind.Eye injury is a leading cause of monocular blindness in the United States, and is second onlyto cataract as the most common cause of visual impairment.2,5In developing countries, eye injuries are not only more common but also more severe in theireffect and this may be attributed to socioeconomic background, inadequate safety measures,lack of
The riots took place from April. 29,1992 until May. 4, 1992, though the riot was not that long, a lot of damage was done during that five day span. In just those five days more than 60 people were killed, more than 2,000 people were injured and 7,000 people arrested. More than 300 buildings were burned down, and nearly one billion dollars worth in property damage.
Head trauma remains one of the most frequent causes of death and disability in children and adults Worldwide. [1, 2] They results in lesions or functional damage of the scalp, the cranial bones, the meninges and the brain itself. [1, 2] According to tThe Centre for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention, National Centre for Injury Prevention and Control, Atlanta, Georgia, USA report in 2010, The 2010 report of the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention, National Centre for Injury Prevention and Control, USA, documented that an estimated 1.7 million people receives medical treatment for head trauma every year in the United States alone with subsequent high morbidity and mortality recorded.  Head injury from traumatic events is documented
