Trial Studies Exercise Role in Relieving Peripheral Arterial Disease

While physicians often recommend exercise to help relieve the symptoms of peripheral arterial obstructive disease (PAOD), a potentially debilitating disorder that afflicts one in eight Americans, they have done so without fully understanding why it seems to help.

Scientists Decipher Genome of Fungus that Causes Life-Threatening Infections

Scientists have deciphered the genomes of two closely related strains of Cryptococcus neoformans, a fungus and the increased use of immunosuppressive therapies. The disease caused by the fungus, cryptococcosis, sometimes involves a fatal brain inflammation.

Quality of Life Improves in Patients with Macular Degeneration

Patients with age related macular degeneration (AMD) experience significant improvement in their quality of life following a surgical procedure called "macular translocation with 360 degree peripheral retinectomy" (MT360). AMD is an eye disease that may lead to vision loss in the central region of a person's visual field, a defect that can seriously impact a patient's quality of life.

Discovery Promises Simpler Therapy for Sickle Cell Disease

A new understanding of the causes for symptoms of sickle cell disease, a condition affecting one in every 600 African Americans, has resulted from a study by researchers at Duke University Medical Center and Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). Findings may lead to a new method for treating the disease.

Chronic Epilepsy Decreases Brain Cell Production in Critical Learning and Memory Center

While epilepsy has long been thought to boost production of new brain cells (neurons) as a means of repairing injury, a new study shows that chronic seizures actually decrease new neuron production in the brain's learning and memory center.

Overacidity and Overgrowth of Yeast, Fungus and Moulds
