Answer: Chrones Disease is a disease or infammation of the small intestine. Ulcerative colitis is inflammation and ulceration of the colon or large intestine. Chrones is harder to treat as much of the nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine so removing parts of it causes more of a problem that if one removes part or all of the large intestine...IF it is very severe. Steroids are used to quell inflammation and other medications.
Answer: Gingivitis is distinguished from periodontal disease (periodontitis) by the lack of periodontal attachment loss (PAL).
PAL is determined by measuring the depth of the space between the tooth and gum (sulcus) with a dental probe, and by measuring the distance from the depth of the sulcus to the cemento-enamel junction, the point dividing the clinical crown from the root of the tooth. A probe depth of 3mm or less is typically considered to be normal. The deeper the depth, the more advanced the periodontitis.
Gingivitis is simply inflamed gums with no loss of periodontal attachment. Once there is measurable loss of attachment, it is called periodontitis.
Answer: Post herpetic neuralgia is "nerve pain" that can persist after anepisode of Shingle (herpes varicella-zoster). It can be mild tosevere and is usually described as burning or tingling. About10-20% of people will have continuing pain at 3 months after theshingles episode with about 3% having pain for a year or more.
Answer: While only around ten percent of people who have had shinglesdevelop postherpetic neuralgia, it is a very uncomfortablecondition. While the duration of postherpetic neuralgia varies, itlasts from one to two months in most patients
Answer: The criteria for administering swine flu vaccine have not been released as yet. A lot will depend on the speed with which sufficient quantities can be produced.
As of 07/13/09, manufacturers were having trouble growing the virus fast enough. They are attempting to hybridize it with a virus that propagates faster, so as to be able to produce the vaccine more rapidly. Results are still unknown.
Answer: Acute cerebrovascular disease is the hardening of the arteries thatsupply blood to the brain. A cerebrovascular accident is when astroke occurs due to a blood clot in the arteries leading to thebrain.
Full Abstract Substantial advances have been made in our understanding of HSV and genital herpes. The molecular biology of viral structure and function and the pathogenesis of infection have been elucidated to a large degree, and epidemiologic investigations, based on reliable type-specific assays, have been done. Diagnostic techniques have been refined, and the value of therapy has been defined. Currently, management strategies for pregnant women and their neonates are based on data rather than hypothesis, and rational counseling is feasible. The next major advance in the field would be the availability of a safe and effective vaccine, the development and investigation of which is being pursued vigorously. Thank you.
