HIV AIDS

by Barbarawoods5 months ago

Human immunodeficiency virus disease and AIDS (HIV/AIDS) is a range of conditions caused by contamination with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Following introductory disease, a man may not see any manifestations or may encounter a concise time of flu like ailment. Commonly, this is trailed by a drawn out period without any side effects. As the contamination advances, it meddles more with the safe framework, expanding the danger of creating basic diseases, for example, tuberculosis, and in addition other crafty contaminations, and tumors that once in a while influence individuals who have working insusceptible frameworks. These late manifestations of disease are alluded to as (AIDS). This stage is regularly additionally connected with unintended weight reduction.

HIV is spread essentially by unprotected sex (counting butt-centric and oral sex), sullied blood transfusions, hypodermic needles, and from mother to child amid pregnancy, conveyance, or breastfeeding. Some natural liq

Neuro Effects of Opioids on the Human Brain

by Barbarawoods5 months ago

This paper is an examination of the neuro effects of opioids on the human brain. The research examines the brain receptors, region, enzymes, agonists involved, and the results of its interaction with opioids. Examination of the pharmacological effect on receptors located in the neural cell membranes shows that the most important aspect is the modulation of the K and Ca ions channels. This is mediated by the activation of the delta, kappa and mu opioid receptors in the peripheral and central nervous systems. The study found that opioid receptors are coupled by guanine nucleotide binding proteins (G-proteins) to the K+ channel and voltage sensitive Ca++ channel, particularly, the N-type channel. The channels are inhibited if K+ outwards release is increased leading to short polarization time. The outward movement occurs in several regions of the spinal cords, brain, and the myenteric plexus. The rapid K+ outward movement is associated with the observed hyperpolarization and inhibition ca

The Prevalence and Incidence of Hepatitis C in the Anguillan Prison Population

by Barbarawoods5 months ago

Background:

The purpose of this project was to determine the prevalence of Hepatitis C among the inmates of Her Majesty’s Prison in Anguilla, British West Indies, as well as the rate of transmission whilst incarcerated. Participation was voluntarily by 24 participants and confidentiality was maintained by replacing the inmate’s names with numbers.

Methods:

A validated questionnaire was given and guided towards lifestyle, behaviors while incarcerated and knowledge of the disease and safety precautions. Following the survey, Hepatitis C testing was performed via an immunoassay for the presence of antibodies in the samples serum.

Findings:

There was one inmate who tested positive for Hepatitis C as a part of his initial work up upon incarceration, and the same inmate was found to be positive for HCV after our testing; concluding, there was no increase in the number of affected inmates.

Conclusion:

This research was beneficial in educating the inmates of Anguilla about hepatitis
