The skin is the largest organ in the human body and has a variable structure. It is divided into three layers: epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. Amid aesthetics, this structure works as a systemic administration port or as a route to administration of active principles. Invasive procedures, however, non-surgical, have been standing out and gaining space globally, as these are techniques that do not bring a significant risk of life or prolonged rest after treatment. The aim of this work is to rai...

Since Nixon famously declared war on cancer in 1971, trillions of dollars have been spent on cancer research but the life expectancy for most forms of cancer is still poor. There are many reasons for the partial success of cancer translational research. One of these can be the predominance of certain paradigms that potentially narrowed the vision in interpreting cancer. The main paradigm to explain carcinogenesis is based on DNA mutations, which is well interpreted by the somatic mutation theory...

Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID 2019), caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is a dreadful infectious disease which has emerged as one of the most significant medical emergency affecting everyone directly or indirectly. COVID 2019 is a multisystem disease and causes severe immunosuppression. Initially thought to affect mainly the respiratory system, it strikes all vital organ systems and cause defects in cardio-circulatory, respiratory system and gastrointe...

Abstract Coronavirus pandemic has emerged as an extraordinary healthcare crisis in modern times. The SARS-CoV-2 novel coronavirus has high transmission rate, is more aggressive and virulent in comparison to previously known coronaviruses. It primarily attacks the respiratory system by inducing cytokine storm that causes systemic inflammation and pulmonary fibrosis. Decorin is a pluripotent molecule belonging to a leucine rich proteoglycan group that exerts critical role in extracellular matrix (...

Abstract Preexisting hypertension is a known risk factor for severe COVID-19. Abnormal activation of RAS upregulates angiotensin II (Ang-II) and contributes to severe manifestations of COVID-19. Although RAS inhibitors (RASi) are a mainstay of antihypertensive therapy, they have been associated (in some animal studies) with an increase in angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors that facilitate cellular entry of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Nonetheless, current medical practice does not recomme...
Abstract The power-duration relationship is well documented for athletic performance and is formulated out mathematically in the critical power (CP) model. The CP model, when applied properly, has great predictive power, e.g. pedaling at a specific power output on an ergometer the model precisely calculates the time over which an athlete can sustain this power. However, CP presents physiological inconsistencies and process-oriented problems. The rapid development of near-infrared spectroscopy (N...

Abstract Ultrasound (US) is recognized as a useful tool for detecting lung physiology and pathology. Lung US is compared with standard techniques for evaluating lung structure and function such as computed tomography and pulmonary function tests. At present, markers of normal physiology and pathology are detected using expected image patterns. Detecting the latter depends on the experience of the operator. Diaphragmatic dysfunction is a particularly frequent problem in intensive care. Diaphragma...

COVID-19 is an airway disease that has affected ~125 million people worldwide, caused by a novel coronavirus termed severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2), spread through respiratory droplets, direct contact, and aerosol transmission. Although most patients presenting with absent or mild symptoms recover completely, the highest morbidity and mortality rates are seen in the elderly, and patients with comorbidities such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, immunosuppressive dis...

The origin of post-ictal malfunctions is debatable. We want to propose a novel idea of a cause of these adverse results occurring following epileptic seizures and anesthesia. Previously we have put forward the idea that epileptic seizures termination is caused by the function of the glymphatic system in the brain. A new measurement shows that this system can be much faster than what was estimated before. Moreover, the method enabling this speeding was actually measured in brains of epilepsy subj...
