But i personally will choose animal development since it will explain the components and functions of key molecular genetic and signaling pathways, and also how they work to determine cell fate in selected organisms, and how their dysfunction causes human disease and malformation. Transverse myelitis is a neurological disorder caused by inflammation across both sides of one level, or segment, of the spinal cord.

The term myelitis refers to inflammation of the spinal cord; transverse simply describes the position of the inflammation, that is, across the width of the spinal cord. Symptoms of transverse myelitis include a loss of spinal cord function over several hours to several weeks.

Transverse myelitis may be either acute developing over hours to several days or subacute usually developing over 1 to 4 weeks. The mechanism of GBS is believed to be an inflammatory neuropathy due to cross reactivity between neural antigens classifjcation antibodies that is induced by specific infections. Infectious organisms, such as C.

See, that’s what the app is perfect for.

The most common symptoms reported before onset of GBS are fever, cough, sore throat, and other upper respiratory symptoms. The weakness typically reaches its peak by the second week, followed by a plateau of variable duration before resolution or stabilization with residual disability.

Facial, oropharyngeal, and oculomotor muscles may be affected because of cranial neuropathy, especially in the less common subtypes.


Paresthesia in the feet and hands is common, but sensory symptoms are generally mild, except for in those patients with the acute motor-sensory axonal neuropathy subtype.

Autonomic symptoms occur in about two-thirds of patients and include cardiac arrhythmias, orthostasis, blood pressure instability, urinary retention, and slowing of gastrointestinal motility.

Patients with GBS classically have increased protein levels and a normal white clasaification cell count i. A tumor marker is ckassification biomarker found in the blood, urine, or body tissues that can be elevated in cancer, among other tissue types.

Tumor markers can be produced directly by the tumor or by non-tumor cells as a response to the presence of a tumor. Most tumor markers are tumor antigens, but not all tumor antigens can classificahion used as tumor markers.

Aspergillus spores are small and can penetrate deep into the respiratory system to the alveolar level.

In healthy people, innate and adaptive immune responses are triggered by various immune cells drawn to the site of infection by numerous inflammatory cytokines and neutrophilic attractants. In this situation, mucociliary clearance is initiated and spores are successfully phagocytosed, clearing the infection from the host. From this, it will react to hypersinsitivity response, both a type I response atopic, with formation of immunoglobulin E, or IgE and a type III hypersensitivity response with formation of immunoglobulin G, or IgG.

The reaction of IgE with Aspergillus antigens results in mast cell degranulation with bronchoconstriction and increased capillary permeability. Immune complexes a type III reaction and inflammatory cells are deposited within the mucous membranes of the airways, leading to necrosis and eosinophilic infiltration. A person with ABPA will have some or all of the following symptoms: You may also cough up blood hemoptysis.

Is it the same as in sepsis patient? Posts Ask me anything Archive. Enneking Classification of Musculoskeletal Tumor What to know: The grade of the tumor G1: Low-grade tumor cells look more like normal cells and are less likely to grow and spread quickly, G2: High-grade tumor cells look more abnormal.

The extent of the main primary Tumor T1: I am a undergrad pre-med and I am trying to figure out what classes to take for next semester. Which class would be most helpful or better appreciated for med school Animal Development or Comparative Claassification Anatomy?


Transverse Myelitis Transverse myelitis is a neurological ennekihg caused by inflammation across both sides of one level, or segment, of the spinal cord. Tumor Marker A tumor marker is a biomarker found in the blood, urine, or body tissues that can be elevated in cancer, among other tissue types. Uses of tumor markers can broadly be classified as follows: Screening for common cancers on a population basis.

Monitoring of cancer survivors after treatment. Diagnosis of specific tumor types, particularly in certain brain tumors and other instances where biopsy is not feasible.

There are 4 things that should be considered about a Tumor marker test: Sensitivityno Tumor marker test has percent sensitivity, so some tumors are still not detected by a single Tumor marker test. Specificityonly the M2-PK Tumor marker test for colorectal has up to 95 percent specificity. False Negativethe result is negative, but in fact is positive.

False Positive, the result is positive, but in fact is negative. Prognosis for Life Ad vitam life: Diagnosis A sputum culture mucus coughed up from theairway can be done to see if Aspergillus is growing in the airway but is not always reliable. On the other hand, even if the culture is negative, a person can still have ABPA.

A CT scan computed tomography however, is a more detailed view of your lungs and therefore can be very helpful. The bronchiectasis is kind of a curve to the reader. A blood test can be done to measure sepcifc IgE to Aspergillus.
