These could be related to food sensitivities and intolerances. The most common food intolerances include dairy (lactose), wheat (gluten), yeast, soy, corn, eggs and even some artificial sweeteners. How can you know if you have chronic inflammation if you don't have symptoms or a diagnosis? You can find out if you have inflammation by having your C- reactive protein levels tested. The high sensitivity C-reactive protein, is the preferred indicator of chronic, low-grade inflammation. What should I do if I have high levels of C-reactive protein? If your C-reactive protein levels are high, you will first want to talk to your doctor to find out if there is an underlying infection, allergy, autoimmune disorder or other contributing disease. If not, your excess weight could be the cause and weight loss is your best line of defense. If you are a smoker, that could also be contributing to the problem. How do foods influence inflammation? Inflammation can also be influenced by the foods you eat. Research has shown that certain foods trigger inflammation and others suppress it. Some of the foods that are pro-inflammatory include: Animal fats (corn-fed beef, dark meat and skin of poultry, pork, duck…

    Chronic periodontitis is a complex disease caused by microorganism. recent studies showed the effect of periodontal diseases on the systemic health conditions like cardiovascular disease (CVD). C reactive protein (CRP) is an acute phase reactant which used as marker for monitoring of periodontal diseases and systemic health problems. Body mass index (BMI) on the other hand has a relationship with the level of CRP and severity of periodontal diseases as well as systemic health. 1.1. INTRODUCTION …

    and Francis, 1930), a name that reflects its reaction with the C-polysaccharide of Pneumococcus. This pentameric protein with MW 118 kDa has five non-covalently bonded and non-glycosylated identical subunits of 206 amino acids each to form a disk-shaped pentagon (Fig. 1). CRP has been proven as an early indicator of infectious or inflammatory conditions as well as a universal biomarker for a wide range of diseases and disorders. As such diseases often commence at very low CRP levels, nM or even…

    Prions, endospores, and mycobacterium all are extremely resistant to antimicrobial treatment. Prions are extremely small, even smaller than viruses. Heat or formaldehyde aren’t very effective against prions. Endospores are extremely resistant to harsh conditions as well. They can survive heat up to 100 degrees C, drying, radiation, and majority of chemicals. Mycobacterium are extremely resistant due to their waxy cell wall. This cell wall blocks many things from entering the bacteria, making it…

    It is a progressive and irreversible kidney disease that is characterized by initial hyperfiltration, albuminuria, expansion of mesangial matrix, interstitial fibrosis, thickening of basement membranes, and renal cell damage. DN affects 20% to 30% of the diabetic patients (1). Many pathways that involved in DN have been postulated such as hyperglycemia, oxidative stress (OS) and activation of protein kinase C (PKC) (2-4) (Table 1). The up-regulation of the receptors for AGE (RAGE) has been…

    Inhibitor-1(PAI-1)4G/5G polymorphism with oxidative stress markers Malondialdehyde (MDA) and High sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), fibrinolysis marker PAI-1and lipid profiles. Subject and Methods: Blood was drawn and DNA extracted from 90 subjects (46 cases and 44 controls). The 4G/5G polymorphism of PAI-1 was amplified using specific primers. Amplified products were visualized by staining with Ethidium bromide after electrophoresis in agarose. Risk factors PAI-1, MDA, hs-CRP and lipid…

    lamellipodia. What scientist don’t know is exactly how paxillin effects different functions in a cell. In order to solve this mystery, Cress, et al. wanted to take the research further and determine the role that paxillin played in lamellipodia formation, and how paxillin affected the barrier that surrounds a cell. This would be a step toward finding out how much of an effect that proteins have in the restoration of the outer barrier of a cell. If scientist could figure this out, another step…

    tissues rather than bone tissue making them more prone to toxic effects of ingestion of lead. Pregnant women are also at risk of exposing the fetus to ingested lead as it can pass easily through the placenta. The effects of lead exposure to a developing fetus is sometimes not observed until later developmental stages. As previously mentioned, leads mechanism of toxicity is heavily reliant on its ability to cause oxidative stress in the body. It does this by binding to Glutathione which is used…
