Nossa experiência clínica

CLÍNICA (28/01/2008) Dentro da idéia de por ordem na memória, um dos itens já arrolados se relaciona com o processo, circunstâncias, fatos e lembranças relacionados com nossa atividade clínica. Obviamente tivemos alguns modelos que de alguma forma devem ter nos inspirado ou influído em decisões. Há poucos dias, quando foi da entrevista da *Valderês* para o *Museu da História da Medicina do Rio Grande do Sul*, eu perguntava se houve algum modelo que tivesse influído na escolha para seguir medicina. Ela dizia que desde o terceiro ano ginasial decidira ser médica e ser dona de um hospi...mais »

Shaking up the Tree of Life 1. Elizabeth Pennisi Science 18 Nov 2016: Vol. 354, Issue 6314, pp. 817-821 DOI: 10.1126/science.354.6314.817 Summary In 2010 a comparison between a Neandertal genome and genomes from people today turned up evidence of ancient liaisons, a discovery that belied the common idea that animal species can't hybridize or, if they do, will produce infertile offspring—think mules. Such reproductive isolation is part of the classic definition of a species. This discovery brought credence to other work in plants, Darwin's finches in the Galápagos Islands, tropic... mais »

BAG3 protein plays critical role in protecting heart from reperfusion injury, Temple research shows November 17, 2016 (Philadelphia, PA) – The inability of cells to eliminate damaged proteins and organelles following the blockage of a coronary artery and its subsequent re-opening with angioplasty or medications – a sequence known as ischemia/reperfusion – often results in irreparable damage to the heart muscle. To date, attempts to prevent this damage in humans have been unsuccessful. According to a new study by scientists at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LK...mais »

Alcohol May Fuel Prostate Cancer RiskThe more men drank, the stronger the association, study found By Robert Preidt Tuesday, November 15, 2016 [image: HealthDay news image] TUESDAY, Nov. 15, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Drinking may raise the risk of prostate cancer, and the more men drink the greater their risk, a new analysis of 27 studies suggests. Canadian and Australian scientists found a significant association between alcohol and prostate cancer risk, though they did not prove that drinking caused prostate cancer risk to rise. Even low levels of drinking (up to two drinks a day) we... mais »

Hippocampal neural disinhibition

neurosciencestuff *Too much activity in one of the brain’s key memory regions is bad for your memory and attention* Neurons in the brain interact by sending each other chemical messages, so-called neurotransmitters. Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the most common inhibitory neurotransmitter, which is important to restrain neural activity, preventing neurons from getting too trigger-happy and from firing too much or responding to irrelevant stimuli. Researchers led by Dr Tobias Bast in the School of Psychology at The University of Nottingham have found that faulty inhibitory neurot... mais »

Two Cholesterol Drugs Work Better Together Than Apart [image: Heart attack, conceptual artwork] - Alice Park @aliceparkny Nov. 15, 2016 PCSK9 inhibitors—which received much fanfare recently for lowering cholesterol to unprecedented levels —doctors wanted to know how they would work if taken along with statins, the gold standard for treating high LDL cholesterol. Do the drugs, which both work on cholesterol receptors in the liver but in slightly different ways, combine forces to lower LDL even further than either alone? Or do they negate each other’s effects, only producing as m... mais »

Cataracts are caused by a build-up of protein on the lens, turning it opaque. Currently, the only treatment is surgery, which is not readily available in developing countries. This lack of access had led to cataracts becoming the most common cause of blindness worldwide. In a study publi... mais »

A Rare Genetic Mutation Might Inspire the First Drug That Fights All Viruses By Annie Sneed | Scientific American December 2016 Issue Viruses are notorious for evading man-made drugs, but they are powerless against a rare mutation in the gene *ISG15*. A person who possesses this mutation is better at fighting off most (if not all) of the viruses that plague humankind—but probably fewer than one person in 10 million has it. Dusan Bogunovic of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai thinks it may be possible to develop a drug that mimics this mutation. If he is right, he may be on ... mais »
