Kegels in Your Car
One annoying, stressful, obnoxious fact of aging is, well, peeing in your pants. Stress incontinence can be avoided by doing mula bandha during yoga, which is basically doing a Kegel clench during your entire yoga practice. It's what I've done for eighteen years, and it works. But if you're not into yoga, you need to have a daily Kegel practice. What Are Kegels? Pelvic floor muscle exercises were developed in 1948 by American obstetrician and gynecologist, Dr. Arnold Kegel. Kegels consist of repeatedly contracting and relaxing the pubococcygeus (pubo-cock-see-gee-us) muscle, which is like a hammock holding in all the other muscles attached to the pelvic bone and surrounding organs. The benefits of Kegels are well documented. Incontinence Involuntary leakage of urine disrupts normal living and is demoralizing and depressing for those who suffer from this condition. Strengthening your PC muscle specifically addresses stress incontinence, which is the involuntary loss of urine when a person coughs, laughs, jogs, shouts, sneezes, or lifts heavy objects such as grocery bags or small children. By strengthening your PC muscles, stress incontinence can be prevented, improved, even cured. Prostate Cancer Surgery A man's PC muscle can be weakened from an enlarged prostate, prostatitis, a radical prostatectomy, or radiation therapy for prostate cancer. A flabby PC muscle leads to incontinence. After surgery and radiation for prostate cancer, some urinary control is inevitably lost f...
Authors: Roque M, Bianco B, Christofolini DM, Cordts EB, Vilarino FL, Carvalho W, Valle M, Sampaio M, Geber S, Esteves SC, Barbosa CP Abstract Controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) is crucial for optimizing in vitro fertilization (IVF) / intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) success. Multiple factors influence the ovarian response to COS, making predictions about oocyte yields not so straightforward. As a result, the ovarian response may be poor or suboptimal, or even excessive, all of which have negative consequences for the affected patient. There is a group of patients that present with a suboptimal response to...
Potential role of PIN1 genotypes in predicting benefit from oxaliplatin-based and irinotecan-based treatment in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, Published online: 21 June 2018; doi:10.1038/s41397-018-0030-8Potential role of PIN1 genotypes in predicting benefit from oxaliplatin-based and irinotecan-based treatment in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer
CONCLUSIONS: Based on this evidence, study authors support a conservative view of genital burn treatment. Enzymatic debridement allows earlier and more selective debridement, which can improve the aesthetic outcome.
Well-balanced levels of tyrosine phosphorylation, maintained by the reversible and coordinated actions of protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) and protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs), are critical for a wide range of cellular processes including growth, di ﬀerentiation, metabolism, migration, and survival. Aberrant tyrosine phosphorylation, as a result of a perturbed balance between the activities of PTKs and PTPs, is linked to the pathogenesis of numerous human diseases, including cancer, suggesting that PTPs may be innovative molecular targets for cancer treatment. Two PTPs that have an important inhibitory role in haemato...
The study is potentially a “leap forward” in cancer genomics, particularly for subsets of patients with metastatic and anaplastic thyroid cancer.
In the Utah Cancer Survivors Study, male thyroid cancer survivors had an almost 50% higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease than females.
AbstractDespite significant advances in our ability to treat cancer, cytotoxic chemotherapy continues to be the mainstay treatment for many solid tumours. Chemotherapy is commonly associated with a raft of largely manageable adverse events; however, gastrointestinal (GI) toxicity (also termed mucositis) remains a significant challenge with little in the way of preventative and therapeutic options. The inability to manage GI complications likely reflects our incomplete understanding of its aetiology and the idiosyncrasies of each chemotherapeutic agent. This review highlights aims to provide a narrative for the involvement ...
A 9-year-old boy in Greece permanently injured his left eye when he repeatedly gazed into a laser pointer's green beam, doctors say.
