PHYSIOLOGY: A “NOBEL” CAUSE

physiology

The Nobel prize for Physiology, awarded by the prestigious Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, was given in two halves to William C Campbell and Satushi Omara on, for their discovery of a therapy for infections cause by roundworm parasites, and Youyou Tu for her palliative discoveries against malaria.

The distribution of these prizes and the work description of their winners goes to show how important physiology is, as a theoretical as well as curative science. Physiology is the study of cells, organs, tissues, biochemical and chemical processes in the human body. Those who make significant discoveries or breakthroughs in this field are given Nobel Prizes. The talk of Nobel prizes is important here because it reflects the significance of constant research in physiology. It is the tireless efforts of these physiologists that have brought powerful drugs, which can combat and annihilate a very dangerous set of diseases, which mostly members of the third world are, plagues by.

Campbell and Omura discovered the drug “Avermectin”, which has lowered the spread of River Blindness and Lymphatic Filariasis, both of them being deadly diseases, in addition to being the solution for a number of parasitic diseases.
Youyou Tu, on the other hand, has carved her own niche in the field of physiology by developing the drug “Artemisinin”, which has significantly reduced mortality rates of malaria patients.

Both these developments have reduced potential human suffering to an inestimable extent and are the shining beacon of hope for future researchers in the field. By – Sukanya

ALLERGIES: OF THE MIND AND BODY

Allergology

“I’m allergic to cheap clothes!” is something we’ve all heard a supposedly high society person say. But our knowledge of allergies should not be limited to this statement by itself. Of course, we are all aware that allergic here means dislike. But real life, medical allergies have the potential to be fatal. Allergies are said to have been caused when a person reacts abnormally to substances which are normally absorbed or encountered by others. These allergies can come from different sources and the study of allergies alongwith their causes is termed as Allergology. Allergies are more common than they seem.

At least 20 % of the people in the world have a medical allergy and at least 18% of the world’s population is allergic to a food substance. The increasing environmental pollution and deteriorating air quality are not making things any better, ask an asthma patient! So what’s the solution, apart from stocking up on antihistamines? Step one: be aware of your body and how it responds to the food you put into it, the environment and the air. Step two: do your bit to curb pollution. Yes, it is natural to think that what can ONE person’s efforts achieve! But an ocean is made of a million drops and taking that example, each one of us should do whatever little we can to make the air a little cleaner, the grass a little greener. It could be something as small as walking those two blocks instead of taking out the car out of the driveway. These tiny things could help you and your future generations be allergy free and breathe a little easier! By – Sukanya

MICROBIOLOGY: EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE!

Microbiology in Noida

Isn’t is kind of awe inspiring to think that every time you breathe, you are inhaling thousands of microscopic organisms? Some will enter your body to perish and dies, while some might enter and wreak havoc, causing you to fall ill. The purpose of this blog is not to become a Jain and wear a mouth mask to prevent accident inhalation of “innocent” forms of life. It is to enlighten you of the fact that life exists in forms different from those that we generally acknowledge, i.e., it is not only humans, animals and plants that have life.

Life exists in tiny microscopic organisms, also called virus, fungi, bacteria, protozoa, parasites and so on. In fact, there is an entire branch of science dedicated to the study of these little monsters! It is known as microbiology, and it aims at analyzing, researching and drawing significant conclusions about these micro organisms. Microbiology can be further classified into an abundance of different fields, like mycology, bacteriology, virology, etc. The benefits of studying microbiology are aplenty, as they make us familiar with the causes of various diseases, thus helping microbiologists isolate and destroy the disease causing pathogens.

There are also the good kind of bacteria, which help in industry fermentation, food preservation etc. It is essential to identify them, too, so that newer methods of industrial progress can be made. All in all, microbiology is the surprise winner in the field of science. It makes mammoth contributions by studying the tiniest subjects! By – Sukanya

PALEOPATHOLOGY: UN-BURY THE PAST!

paleopathology

Digging up past graves can be a good thing in a select few cases. Here, it happens to be for the cause of paleopathology, which focuses on study of diseases that affected our ancestors. Physical examination and study of skeletal remains of our ancestors coupled with knowledge and expertise result in vast knowledge about the kind of affectations ancient civilisations were subject to, thus helping us build a solid base of reference for combatting any future, more advanced versions of the diseases we may face.

Several conclusions may be arrived at by a paleopathologic test of the skeleton, for example, bent legs due to a vitamin D deficiency, identification of cancerous growths from study of tissues, identifying traumas through bone fractures / injuries, and even the stress of daily life or a life of hard labour can be identified by looking at the shape of one’s muscles and spine. Whether a person had growth retarding hormones can also be detected by something called “Harris Lines“ , which are physical indicators of mental stress on the bones. Even a person’s age and gender can be guessed by examination of their dental records and this just goes to show how far science has come in the process of generating a lot from a little. A deeper study of paleopathology can help even a layman to better understand his roots and once again express awe at the wonders of the universe! By – Sukanya

RADIATION THERAPY: TELL THEM THEY’RE NOT ALONE!

Radiotherapy

Cancer is not just a disease. It’s a disease, which can take away a string of lives when it is found in one. It is capable of taking away a person, a person who is loved by god knows how many people, from their friends, family and this world. Some people emerge victorious in this fight against cancer but, unfortunately, this fight is not easy, either. It is a grueling fight the patient undertakes to give life one more chance. Radiation therapy or radiotherapy is one such course of treatment, which is prescribed to cancer patients.

It makes use of ionized rays to isolate and destroy the cancer cells in a patient. Needless to say, the treatment itself comes with a lot of challenges, like first of all building up the strength to undertake such a rigorous treatment, and secondly, the physical strength to bear the entirely exhausting side effects. But, as it is said, the body achieves what the mind believes, so it is essential for potential radiotherapy seekers to be well informed about just what they are getting into and prepare themselves psychologically as well as physically to be able to undergo this live saving treatment and emerge victorious from the other end.

Research, coupled with a strong support system can help a cancer patient go a long way in terms of recovery. We can help out cancer patients irrespective of the fact whether we know them or not, by volunteering to spend time with those with no family or even doing something as trivial as donating our hair for cancer wigs. Life is really all about the small things, which end up making a huge difference in the end.
