This is a review of photodynamic therapy, which is a classic binary system involving the use of a photosensitizer and light of very specific wavelength, consistent with the absorption characteristics of that sensitizer. As a binary system, its effects are almost entirely limited to tumour cells,...
The incidence rates of colon cancer are high in North America and northern Europe, lower in southern Europe, and much lower in Asia and Africa. It is widely believed that environmental factors, particularly dietary patterns, account for most of this marked variation in rates. Over the past...
The interactions between pneumoccocal surface components and host defence systems that initiate pneumoccocal meningitis have been studied in considerable molecular detail over the past decade. In this sense, the pneumococcus has served as a prototype for the unravelling of the genesis of...
Recent developments in video camera techniques, new instruments and advanced surgical techniques have increased the importance of thoracoscopy in both the diagnosis and therapy of diseases of the chest. Many diseases previously demanding open thoracotomy (i.e. spontaneous pneumothorax, biopsies...
The primary role of intervertebral disc as the tissue related to low back pain was confirmed 60 years ago when disc prolapses were described. Recent studies are providing more information on what other types of changes in discs can cause low back pain and how pain and clinical findings are...
It is established beyond doubt that free radicals in tissues and cells can damage DNA, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. These potentially deleterious reactions are at least partly controlled by antioxidants capable of scavenging free radicals. It is widely believed that a proper balance...
The risk of developing breast cancer in females is determined by characteristics of hormone- and pregnancy-related tissue growth and development and mechanistic interactions between carcinogens and molecular targets and clonal selection of cell lines. Animal models have substantiated the idea...
The adipsin-ASP pathway provides a mechanism by which the adipocyte is able to regulate its rate of de novo triglyceride synthesis and reesterification. The adipocyte can synthesize and secrete the three proteins necessary for the formation of the effector molecule, acylation stimulating protein...
