Magnesium could prevent fractures

Posted on Updated on

Bone fractures are one of the leading causes of disability and ill health especially among the aging population and this increases the burden on the health care system. It is well-known that calcium and vitamin D play an important role in bone health. Magnesium is an essential nutrient and is an important component of the bone. Though there have been suggestions that magnesium may have a beneficial effect on bone health, no study has been able to show its effect on bone fractures. They found that men with lower blood levels of magnesium had an increased risk of fractures, particularly fractures of the hip. The risk of having a fracture was reduced by 44 per cent in men with higher blood levels of magnesium. None of the 22 men who had very high magnesium levels (> 2.3 mg/dl) in the study population experienced a fracture during the follow-up period. In the same study, dietary magnesium intake was not found to be linked with fractures. This finding has been consistently demonstrated in several studies.

New class drug significantly reduces spine fracture risk in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis

Posted on Updated on

In postmenopausal women with osteoporosis, 12 months treatment with romosozumab was associated with rapid and large reductions in their risk of a vertebral fracture compared to placebo, research. In those women receiving romosozumab, all clinical vertebral fractures occurred in the first two months of treatment; overall, the risk of a vertebral fracture was more than five times greater in the group of women given placebo.

New Pathology Atlas maps genes in #cancer is launched to accelerate progress in personalized medicine

Posted on

A new Pathology Atlas is launched today with an analysis of all human #genes in all major cancers showing the consequence of their corresponding protein levels for overall patient survival. The difference in expression patterns of individual cancers observed in the study strongly reinforces the need for personalized cancer treatment based on precision medicine.


#Surgery of Soft Tissue Limb #Sarcomas

Posted on Updated on

Soft tissue sarcoma of the appendages are the most continuous harmful tumors with mesenchymal separation. They are frequently expansive in measure. The principle treatment is R0 resection. The visualization relies upon the phase of the malady, the nature of the surgery, the histo-prognostic and the atomic review. In Africa the propelled stages are the most regular at analysis. There is an incredible absence of pathologists, immuno histochemistry examination and also abnormal state determination strategies, In this manner repeat rate is high and survival is low.

Tissue Engineering Approaches for Motor Neuron Pathway Regeneration

Posted on

During fetal development, a tightly-regulated spatiotemporal pattern of guidance cues directs and maintains motor neuron axonal growth along specific pathways to reach the target cells and tissues. However, an inflammatory environment resulting from an injury (e.g., trauma, stroke) or disease [e.g., amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), primary lateral sclerosis (PLS), and hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP)] leads to progressive degeneration of motor neurons and destruction of axonal tracts in the adult CNS.
