Toxoplasma gondii: Host – Parasite Interaction and Behavior Manipulation

Toxoplasma gondii is an obligate intracellular parasite that causes different lesions in men and other warm-blooded animals. Humoral and cellular immune response of the host against the parasite keeps the protozoan in a latent stage, and clinical disease ensues when the immunological response is compromised. Brain parasitism benefits the parasite causing behavioral changes in the host, not only in animals but also in humans. Schizophrenia and epilepsy are two neurological disorders that have recently been reported to affect humans coinfected with T. gondii.

Formation of the Mind and the Emergence of Consciousness

By:

Hugo Lagercrantz

The quest for the emergence of consciousness is fundamental. However, consciousness has been regarded as “airy-fairy” to speak about at conferences and seminars in neuroscience and clinical medicine. But to talk about the brain without discussing the mind is like dealing with the gastrointestinal canal without mentioning digestion, as pointed out by the philosopher John Searle. Since the beginning of this century, consciousness has been a hot topic in neurobiology partially due to the more sophisticated brain imaging techniques.

Apples Botany Production and Uses

Apples Botany and the production and uses. From the 13th century, apples became more and more widely planted throughout Europe in gardens of royalty and commoners. Raw apples were seldom consumed, but they were more greatly prized when cooked and sometimes blended with spices and sugar or honey. Fermented juice, or cider, like beer, was preferred to the occasionally questionable local water-supply. By the 17th century, there were at least 120 cultivars described in western Europe.

Chelation Therapy in the Treatment of Metal Intoxication

In contrast, several toxic heavy metals, such as arsenic, mercury, copper, and lead may be referred to as sulfur-seekers, having higher affinity to endogenous sulfur than oxygen groups. These metal cations may be bound and inactivated by the two vicinal thiol groups on the therapeutic agent BAL. However, today, the clinical use of BAL is limited due to its high toxicity. Its less toxic derivatives, meso-2,3-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) and D, L-2,3-dimercapto- 1-propane sulfonic acid (DMPS), have now entered the clinical arena and superseded dimercaprol in most cases of heavy metal poisonings. These latter dithiols are nowadays available for oral administration, as tablets, as well as for parenteral administration.

The present book also gives guidelines for clinicians who are responsible for diagnosis and treatment of metal poisonings and overload diseases. Also, some guidelines for further research are precipitated in the last chapter.

Female Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction occurs in both women and men, although less attention has been paid to female sexual dysfunction. This article reminds primary care physicians that they must assume a proactive role in the diagnosis and treatments of these disorders. Traditionally, there are four areas of sexual problems in women: desire disorders, arousal disorders, orgasmic disorders, and sexual pain disorders. Desire disorders include a lack of interest in having sex or a lessening in the desire to have sex. Arousal disorders are when a woman does not feel a sexual response in her body or begins to respond but cannot maintain the response. Orgasmic disorders occur when she cannot have an orgasm or experiences pain during an orgasm; sex pain disorders are characterized by pain during or immediately following intercourse. Long-term medical diseases, minor ailments, medications, and psychosocial difficulties are etiologic (causative) factors in female sexual dysfunction. Gynecologic problems and cancers are also frequent sources of sexual dysfunction. The article stresses that patient education and reassurance, with early diagnosis and intervention, are essential for effective treatment.
