Canadian researchers report having found a pill that would allow the smoker to finish with the cigarette. Already used against psoriasis, the reflect revealed other properties: it slows the metabolism of nicotine and would be thus a true “magic potion” against smoking addiction.
Nicotine establishes and maintains the smoking addiction. Thus, the principle of various treatments for smoking cessation (patches, gum, etc.) aims to progressively reduce the daily dose of nicotine in the blood of the smoker. But a Canadian study could lead to the development of a new therapeutic pathway.
Limit the urge to smoke
After a cigarette smoker absorbs the nicotine that is found in his blood. Nicotine is then metabolized in blood and its concentration decreases. Below a certain threshold, the smoker is apt to turn a cigarette. “The principle (developed in this study) is different from what is currently used” said Edward M. Sellers, Director of the study. Continue reading “A pill to stop smoking”
What is it?
It is a bone disease causing mechanical pain and a non-homogeneous demineralization of the bones with trophic disorders (skin and dander: nails, hair).
The dystrophy results from a disturbance vasomotor itself linked to a dysregulation of the autonomic sympathetic nervous system. The arterioles and capillaries system located in the os hangs in vasodilation. The segment reached member is so red and swollen.
A spasm then occurs followed by active vasoconstriction. The member becomes cold. Hair fall, nails break.
Tendons and fascia retractions were not slow to occur. Autonomic dystonia is often associated. Continue reading “The algodystrophies”
Despite recent medical advances, there is currently no cure for Parkinson’s disease. But support can correct symptoms. The point with the Association France Parkinson.
Currently there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease but, since 1960, new treatments and discoveries succeed. Drugs allow a resumption of activities in 80% of cases. For Professor Pierre Cesaro, neurologist, Chairman of the Scientific Committee of the Association France Parkinson, “new treatments can improve the quality of life of patients and extend their life expectancy of ten years compared to 1970s. Among them, the brain stimulation reproduced stably the best effect of medical treatment. ”
Fifty years after the discoveries of Arvid Carlsson (Nobel Prize 2000) on dopamine, which gave rise to the standard treatment for Parkinson’s disease, researchers are still trying to better treat the symptoms if they can not cure the disease . We do not know in fact still stop to date, or even slow down the destruction of neurons that produce dopamine. Continue reading “The management of Parkinson’s disease”
In addition to the new extended-release drug treatment, research focuses on the psycho-social aspects of Parkinson’s disease. An important to lift the veil on many prejudices and allow patients to exonerate it.
A man aged 45 has fixed lines and walk “weird.” There is, however, neither depressed nor under the influence of alcohol. It is parkinsonism. Besides tremors (2/3 of people with Parkinson’s do not shake) the misconceptions about the disease are numerous. Fortunately, management becomes increasingly global and psycho-social consequences begin to be taken into account.
Parkinson take charge of the body and mind
The doctors are considering the establishment of an announcement protocol, so that the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease is not mentioned too abruptly. “It usually takes a year to integrate the new. Ago phases of denial, rejection and many people who try to hide as long as possible Parkinson their families. A counseling is recommended to help live well every day, “said Dr. Thierry Hergueta, a psychologist at the Pitie Salpetriere hospital in Paris.

Great forgotten neurodegenerative diseases, Parkinson’s disease receives no National Plan unlike Alzheimer’s disease in particular. This results in a lack of coordination in the management and research, to the detriment of patients and their families.
One year after the White Paper on Parkinson’s disease , which offered twenty measures to improve the management of patients at the time of diagnosis, help them cope with their disease and boost research, progress is stalled almost. The Association France Parkinson calls the government.
Parkinson, the great “forgotten” neurodegenerative diseases
On the eve of the World Parkinson’s Day, April 11, the Association Parkinson calls on the State to launch urgently a national Parkinson Plan, like those that exist for other diseases, particularly for the Alzheimer disease . If the association has decided to act, it is estimated that Parkinson’s disease , which in France each year 14,000 new victims, is “the most overlooked of neurodegenerative diseases . ” “Today, solutions and concrete paths exist in support, but lack of resources, they are not coordinated nationally. There is no coverage of the French territory known visible and dynamic,” laments the association. Continue reading “A Parkinson when a Plan?”
It is possible for several years to improve the symptoms of patients with Parkinson’s disease by stimulating deep brain area. This surgical procedure is not available to all patients. Benefits, indications, techniques … Doctissimo an update.
This method is now practiced in over twenty centers in France and concern 300 new patients each year.
Neurostimulation: a beautiful story.
Neurostimulation is a beautiful scientific history, which began with experimental work. The researchers knew that the injury sub-thalamic nucleus (particular area of the brain) improves Parkinson’s symptoms in monkeys. But to go from this observation to the development of neurostimulation, it took two innovations, as recalled Prof. Agid the Salpêtrière (Paris), at the 7th International Forum on Parkinson’s disease.
“Researchers from Bordeaux showed that poses an electrode supplied with electric current in the brain of an animal used to suppress parkinsonian symptoms caused. These results were immediately taken by the team of Prof. Benabib and Pollak in Grenoble , who has applied to the brain of the patient.’s great trick was to use a pacemaker to transform the transient effect in permanent effect on the deep brain structures. ” Continue reading “Neurostimulation against Parkinson’s disease”
How to live a fulfilling sexuality when you are HIV positive? Men and women react the same way? What role can a sex therapist? Dr. Andrew Corman found in practice many people with HIV. It answers questions Doctissimo.
Doctissimo: Is it difficult to live his sexuality today when you are HIV positive?
Dr. Andrew Corman : The biggest problem currently facing the positive is that of listening. They find it difficult to find practitioners who understand, hence the need for them to learn from patient groups and hospital visits for addresses of specialists used to monitor HIV-positive.
The majority of HIV infections are acquired sexually, being HIV positive often elicits feelings of guilt. However, some doctors are embarrassed by the request of HIV vis-a-vis sexuality patients. They can then adopt negative attitudes projective focusing on medical issues and not giving the sexuality its importance, which makes things even more difficult for patients. We are so far behind countries like the United States or Canada, where the “counseling” is highly developed in terms of sexuality in HIV patients. And it is unfortunate that GPs, who would be best placed to perform an advisory function, rarely do. Continue reading “What sexuality for HIV?”
Discovered in 1817 by a British physician who gave him his name, Parkinson’s disease affects 4 million people in the world. Of the 100 000 a 150 000 probable PD, only 80,000 are known and followed. Too often slow and earthquakes are attributed to the simple fact of aging.
Each year, 8,000 new cases. Although the disease usually starts between 55 and 65 years, 5 to 10% of patients have at much younger ages (between 30 and 55 years).
What is Parkinson’s disease?
Discovered in 1817, Parkinson’s disease is still far from having revealed all its secrets. Nervous system, its cause is still unknown. The disease is characterized by the disappearance of a small number of nerve cells (neurons) that secrete a neurotransmitter called dopamine involved in the proper functioning of many parts of the brain and essential for cell survival.Connection between two neurons.
