Addressing glutathione deficiency could help with the treatment of irritable bowel disease (IBD). Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Reactive oxygen species contribute to tissue injury in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The tripeptide glutathione (GSH)
cervical artery dissection
Systematic Review and meta-analysis of chiropractic care and cervical artery dissection: no evidence for causation. Summary: There is no convincing evidence that there’s a causal link between chiropractic manipulation and cervical artery dissection (stroke). Studies that show association between the two have high risk of bias. The annual incidence of artery dissection is between 2-3
Lungs related to alveolar macrophage metabolism
Summary: Glucose (sugar) availability in the lungs could influence the immune response. Abstract: Fine control of macrophage activation is needed to prevent inflammatory disease, particularly at barrier sites such as the lungs. However, the dominant mechanisms that regulate the activation of pulmonary macrophages during inflammation are poorly understood. We found that alveolar macrophages (AlvMs) were
Female runner suffering with pain on sports running knee injury
