    CELLS The immune system is a complex network of cells and chemicals. It's mission is to protect us against foreign organisms and substances. The cells in the immune system have the ability to recognize something as either "self" or "invader" and they try to get rid of anything that is an invader many different kind of cells , and hundreds of different chemicals , must be coordinated for the immune system to function smoothly. Recent scientific advances in human stem cell research have brought into fresh focus the dignity and status of the human embryo. A clearer relationship between two cells that serve our body's natural defense mechanisms against through new research natural killer T (NKT) cell and B cells are two of many immune cell type that work in tandem to help the body fight against foreign infectious agents. The immune system is…

    Sickle cell anemia is a disease that results in the destruction of the protein hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a molecule located in the red blood cells that is responsible for the delivery of oxygen to the cells to the entire human body. This disease is a reaction of a point mutation in the β-hemoglobin gene that leads to the synthesis of sickle hemoglobin, which distorts and injures the red blood cell (Solovieff, Hartley, Baldwin, Klings, Gladwin, Taylor, & Sebastiani, 2011). Healthy red blood cells…

    both a type of white blood cell and are formed from stem cells (Toole and Toole 2008) but then mature into different cells known as T lymphocytes (T cells) and B lymphocytes (B cells). T cells mature in the thymus with cell surface molecules TCR and CD3 and release lymphokines, whereas, B cells mature in the bone marrow with cell surface molecules of antibodies and BCR. This is one way of distinguishing between the two types of cell (Eales, 1999). Even though they both specifically recognise…

    Burkitt’s Lymphoma is a form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in which cancer starts in the immune system called B-cells. It affects the lymphatic system, which helps your body fight infections. There are two common types: Sporadic and Endemic. The types differ by the parts of the body affected and the geographic location. Cause: The disorder is caused by chromosomal translocations. It is also associated with impaired immunity. The endemic (African) type is linked to the Epstein-Barr virus, HIV, and…

    is a type of B cell cancer that affects both men and women of various ages. HL can be divided into two classes: classical HL (cHL) and Nodular Lymphocyte Predominant HL (NLPHL) according to the WHO classification 2008 (Swerdlow et al., 2008). The classical HL accounts for 95% of all HL cases, and it has been further divided into 4 subtypes: Nodular sclerosis cHL, which is the most common phenotype (75% of cHL cases); Mixed cellularity cHL, the second most common phenotype (15-25% of cHL cases);…

    The volume of distribution (Vd) of the drug was higher in the central compartment (V1) than in the peripheral compartment (V2) (52.7 mL/kg and 19.0 mL/kg respectively) (Fasanmade, 2011). This is as expected as the drug is administered in the blood and binds to the TNF molecules found on the surface of cells that are found close by to the blood vessels of the GI tract. Weight effects the PK properties of Infliximab. There is a positive correlation between the weight of the patient and the total…

    1.7 III (b) VEGF: VEGF is also known as vascular permeability factor (VPF) is an endothelial cell specific mitogen in in vitro and is the main factor responsible for vasculogenesis and angiogenesis in a variety of in vivo models. The gene transcripts level of VEGF is stimulated at the time of implantation because process of implantation occurs under hypoxic condition. In rodents, VEGF is involved during embryo–endometrium crosstalk by regulating endothelial cell proliferation and vascular…

    safe from any harmful substances. We were all told that we would be put into two groups the A and the B group. We would all be put into a Eukaryotic Cell if the machine worked to get a closer look at the organelles in a Eukaryotic Cell. I was put into the A group along with another girl who looked about 16. The B group had a boy who looked about 14 and a girl who looked about 15. I guess the age varied between all of us because I am 17. The age range is 14-17 with…

    How HIV type 1 Clade B and C Tat Protein affects the regulation of Indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase I was intensely interested on how HIV-1 Clads and Tat proteins appears to increase the level of neuro-pathogenic agents, such as indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) and kynurenine (KYN) which can cause HIV-1-associated dementia (HAD). This research paper is design to assess how HIV-1 clade tat protein affects the regulation of indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase and how it may contribute to…
