The treatment of cirrhosis and tips for prevention

The treatment of cirrhosis and tips for prevention


Masterpieces of information science in Islam does not deprive others of them 

Mercy of Islam came to us in various branches Baalm 




What benefit rights in the world and the afterlife The theme of the day 

From drinking water to three times

The wisdom of that protect us from cirrhotic 
That when you drink water all at once 
  Flaking with water causing what is known as liver cirrhosis

Nanosensor device can help Cancer Look inside 

Nanoscale technology is infiltrating everything from computers to cars to clothing. Such low tech - 80,000 to 100,000 times smaller than a single human hair - could also become the basis for a next-generation cancer detection and monitoring system. 



A device only a nanometer in diameter that can be inserted under the skin may be able to signal the onset, progression, or spread of cancer, and doctors warning one day so that they can take action quickly. 

Once the cancer begins to grow aggressively and spread from its original location (metastases), it becomes more difficult to treat. Therefore, a sensor that could keep an eye out for the onset of cancer or metastasis within the body of a person - send medical information in real time - could prove to be a game-changer in cancer detection and treatment. 



This early warning system would allow doctors to administer drugs more specifically and earlier - ultimately to help reduce cancer-related deaths, according to the developer chemical engineer, Daniel Roxbury, Ph.D. Roxbury is a researcher at Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research in New York. His work is funded in part by a $ 150,000 grant from the American Cancer Society - Roaring Fork Valley donor group. 

The construction of a sensor Nearly 100,000 times thinner than a sheet of paper 

The sensor is constructed with nanotubes of carbon - carbon fiber in the form of very small drum. It works by detecting the presence and level of a specific blood biomarker that signals the progression and spread of cancer. Roxbury says that certain cancer cells shed a biomarker called uPA (urokinase plasminogen activator), which is associated with many different types of cancer. Device to try to monitor the growth of UPA in the blood of a person. 

Nanotube technology itself is only the vehicle's Roxbury. In order to make the sensors, the first end Roxbury carbon nanotubes, and then the DNA is attached to what is called UPA antibody binding - which can detect UPA molecule itself. These parts work together to make the detection. 

"Antibody send message nanotubes and nanotube gives a reading of how much the molecule uPA is detected," said Roxbury. "Nanotubes are very sensitive to their environment, making them excellent sensors." 

Work Roxbury is very early stages of development and testing. It is currently testing the sensor in a solution of water. 


Once he gets work properly in this environment, it will move to testing in a more complex type solutions such as blood and then in mice, which hopes to make the next two years. If testing goes well in animals, then Roxbury can move his device in clinical trials in humans.
