Magnetic Therapy of Anemia Caused by Inflammations

Manfred Fähnle

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 13, 2022

In my paper I describe the magnetic therapy of anemia caused by inflammations, and I explain the physical processes underlying this therapy. Anemia occurs when there are not enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen to the organs of the body. The patients suffering from anemia feel cold, tired and weak. The most common type of anemia is the iron deficiency anemia. Iron produces a substance in the red blood cells then enables them to carry oxygen (hemoglobin)....

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: September 15, 2022

This was a cross-sectional study carried out in Rivers State University Teaching Hospital, Port Harcourt with the aim of determining the Changes in Haemostatic Parameters in Pregnancy and puerperium. A total of 500 age-matched apparently healthy women of reproductive age, which consisted of 200 (40%) pregnant women, 200 (40%) puerperium mothers and 100 (20%) non-pregnant women who served as controls were studied. Their ages ranged from 16 to 41 years (mean 27.4 ± 4.3 years)....

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 29, 2022

The liver plays a significant role in the maintenance of health and survival of an individual. Any threat to this important organ is a threat to the existence of life. Hence its protection is vital to survival. Individuals with SCD are at high risk of suffering from liver failure due to events resulting from HbS polymerization....

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: July 29, 2022

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was associated with hypercoagulability state, some changes in parameter of coagulation tests, and also cause venous thromboembolism (VTE), which can be predicted with Padua Prediction Score (PPS). In this study, we are going to seek correlation of PPS and some parameter of coagulation tests between mild and moderate - severe COVID-19 patients in isolation room for COVID-19 patients at General Hospital of Prof. dr. R. D. Kandou Manado....

The Severity of Sickle Cell Anemia in Men - The Action of Molecular and Biochemical Markers

Jonathan de Oliveira Rios, Thais Fernandes Ribeiro, Gabriel Felipe Arantes Bertochi, Clarisse Lopes de Castro Lobo and Claudia Regina Bonini Domingos

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 23, 2022

Sickle cell disease is characterized by a very heterogeneous clinical course among patients with the same mutations for sickle cell hemoglobin (HbS). Sickle cell anemia (SCA) is a hereditary hemoglobinopathy caused by the homozygosity of a point mutation in the beta-globin gene, which leads to the substitution of glutamic acid for valine in the sixth position....

Inherited hemoglobinopathies led by Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) are key contributors to the anaemia burden in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). In Tanzania, an estimated six out of one thousand newborns are born with SCD, making Tanzania the fourth country with the highest burden of SCD patients in the world and the third in Africa after Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) (Nigeria 85,000, Democratic Republic of Congo 42,000 and Tanzania 11,000). At present, curative options for sickle cell...

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: April 21, 2022

The balance of neutrophilic and lymphocytic populations in the body is sensitive to neuroendocrine changes present in acute and chronic emotional stress, influencing a range of behaviors intrinsically related to real or potential environmental stressors. In this sense, the Neutrophil/ Lymphocyte Ratio (NLR) is a simple and low-cost tool, derived from the analysis of the blood count, capable of showing changes in several health parameters, since it is related to the pro-inflammatory status of the...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 16, 2022

In refractory or relapsed acute leukemia the achievement of a complete remission by a salvage therapy and the performance of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is in most cases the only treatment by which long term disease-free survival can be accomplished. With current salvage regimens a 5 year overall survival rate of 29% is obtained in children with relapsed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and a 10 year overall survival rate of 36% in children with relapsed acute lymphobla...

Aplastic Anemia-Related Mortality in Brazil, 2000-2018

Augusto Hasiak Santo

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 14, 2022

Aplastic anemia (AA) is a rare and serious disease, potentially life-threatening, that affects hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells and is characterized by pancytopenia and a hypoplastic bone marrow. The development of AA result from the destruction of hematopoietic cells by three main mechanisms, including direct environmental injury, dysregulated immune system, and primary inherited or acquired bone marrow failure syndrome. There are no AA specific markers then the diagnosis is reached by e...
