  • Factors Affecting Australia's Population Growth Rate

    Immigration Australia’s population growth rate is declining at a rate of 1.6% (OECD, 2016). Over the span of 50 years from 1962 to 2012 the birth rate of Australians has decreased from 3.43 babies per woman to 1.89 babies per woman (Gapminder). This societal shift has had a huge impact on population, and therefore has also severely impacted Australia’s economic growth rate. A solution for economies experiencing a loss in population is an increase in immigration. “The purpose of migration is to…

  • Achondroplasia Case Study

    Introduction The predominant disease that mutant FGFR3 (fibroblast growth factor receptor 3) gene causes is Achondroplasia. Furthermore, Achondroplasia means the absence of chondrocyte formation in bones. Additionally, the transformation of chondrocytes into bone cells is prevalent in the limbs as well as the facial bones of humans (1). Therefore, the predominant symptom of Achondroplasia is bone growth retardation and is found in the limbs as well as facial bones. The majority of people…

  • Case Study Of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)

    IPF fibroblasts naturally express higher levels of PDGFR and FGFR than the controls. The proliferative effects of PDFG-BB and bFGF, along with VEGF, were curtailed by the drug. MMPs are endopeptidases that degrade proteins of the ECM, and TIMP are their inhibitors. As expected, treatment enhanced the expression of pro-MMP-2 protein and repressed the expression of the TIMP-2 protein. Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) is a stimulator of collagen production and upregulates collagens in…

  • Extrinsic Factors For Bacterial Growth

    Conditions required for bacterial growth and therefore their reproduction are referred to as Extrinsic and Intrinsic factors. Bacteria can grow anywhere in the world including animals and plants, depending on their characteristic, type and so on. Knowing that, it seems like bacteria can grow everywhere once they have correct conditions. However there are a lot of factors that can affect bacterial growth. The factors affecting bacterial growth are the internal and external conditions of the…

  • Stroke Recovery

    Some of the major factors are vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), Fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2/bFGF), Platelet-Derived growth factor-Beta (PDGF-beta), Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta). These angiogenic peptides are found to be upregulated following ischemic insults to promote micro vessel formation and brain remodeling.[1] Among these numerous endogenous angiogenic regulators, VEGF is the prototypical and most studied proangiogenic mediator in stroke.[2, 3] VEGF…

  • Limiting Factor Affecting Duckweed Growth

    limiting factor of area is the size of the polystyrene cup used in the experiment. Each of the polystyrene cups was the exact size in order to be able to determine how different amounts of fertilizer affected the duckweed growth. Hence, the factor of size could not be investigated as each different amount of fertilizer was exposed to the exact same area. This can be linked to the literature review that discusses how the area where it is growing affects duckweed growth. The limiting factor of…

  • Topical Nerve Growth Factor Model

    Topical Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) Application In an animal model the topical application of NGF to wounds and ulcers leads to a statistically significant decrease in the wound perimeter (66%) vs. controls.[8, 23, 77, 120] Clinically, topical application of NGF leads to the repair of neurotrophic corneal ulcers, recovery of corneal surface sensitivity [36, 119] and diabetic foot ulcers.[73] Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (bFGF) Topical application of bFGF enhances the healing for operative…
