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...

Targeting the PPIs formed between RPA and other DNA Damage Response (DDR) mediators has become an intriguing area of research for cancer drug discovery. A number of studies applied different methods ranging from high throughput screening approaches to fragment-based drug design tools to discover RPA inhibitors. Although these method...

We previously proposed a detailed computational model for this network, which consists of four coupled Cdk modules. Both this detailed model and a reduced, skeleton version show that the Cdk network is capable of temporal self-organization in the form of sustained Cdk oscillations, which correspond to the orderly pr...

The objective of this study was to investigate canine gliomas for the IDH1 R132H point mutation using immunohistochemistry. Thirty-one formalin-fixed and paraffin wax-embedded canine gliomas were examined for both IDH1 R132H expression and pan-IDH1 (IDH1 wild-type and point mutated IDH1). Glial tumour specimens were recorded to be either positive or negative for expression. Pan-IDH1 expression was identified in all 31 tumours (100%), while the IDH1 R132H point mutation was identified in none of the tumours (0%). Therefore, the IDH1 R132H point mutation was not identified in this population of canine gliomas and may not be ...

Authors: Buchanan T, Mutch D Abstract INTRODUCTION: Although a relatively uncommon disease, the treatment of vulvar cancer has changed considerably over the years and has been under considerable focus due to its past overtreatment and apparent increase in incidence. The purpose of this review is to describe the recommended management of the most commonly encountered vulvar carcinomas based on the most recent available literature. Areas covered: The clinical environment of squamous cell vulvar cancers are illustrated in order to describe the potential pitfalls and limitations of treatment. Then, by examining publish...
