Välkommen till vår skönhetsklinik

Vi på skönhetskliniken Catwalk är glada att presentera vårt senaste expansionsprojekt- en exklusiv hudvårdsavdelning. Vi kommer att, på vår praktik på Sveagatan, ansluta en lägenhet på våningen ovanför till den existerande praktiken och göra om den till en hår-sektion.

Tre specialutbildade terapeuter och diverse assistenter kommer att anställas på kliniken. Vi kommer att tillhandahålla förstklassiga behandlingar i stilrena lokaler mitt i centrala Stockholm.

Kliniken kommer huvudsakligen att fokusera på hårborttagning med laser och förebyggande behandlingar av håravfall. Bland annat kommer de finnas möjlighet att få en professionell IPL, intensivt pulserat ljus, -behandling vilket resulterar i silkeslen hud i uppemot åtta månader. Därtill kommer vi också erbjuda behandlingar för dig som lider, eller vill förebygga, håravfall. Det sistnämnda kommer att ske i form av en PRP-behandlingar. PRP står för Platelet Rich Plasma och det finns mängder med empiriska studier som har kartlagt och bevisats metodens duglighet, samt frånvaron av allvarliga biverkningar.

Samtliga kunder som registrerar sig hos vår kundklubb och bokar antingen en Hårborttagning laser-behandling eller en PRP håravfall rådgivning innan den sista september kommer få 35% rabatt på den första behandlingen och 10% rabatt på allt som Catwalk har att erbjuda. Den som dessutom rekryterar en vän till vår kundklubb kan utöver dessa rabatter åtnjuta en gratis hårbottenmassage vid valfritt tillfälle.

Missa inte detta utomordentliga tillfälle att ta hand om din hårväxt, oavsett om det för dig innebär att se till att håret stannar eller försvinner!

 

Hur vanligt är det med fettsugning?

Hur vanligt är det med fettsugning? Innan vi behandlar statistik kring fettsugning och andra kirurgiska ingrepp tänkte jag gå igenom det vanligaste ingreppen.

Fettsugning är ett kirurgiskt ingrepp som använder en sugteknik för att avlägsna fett från specifika delar av kroppen, såsom mage, höfter, lår, skinkor, armar eller nacke. Fettsugning formar konturer även dessa områden. Andra namn för fettsugning inkluderar lipoplastik och kroppskonturering.

Fettsugning anses vanligtvis inte vara en övergripande viktminskningsmetod eller ett viktminskningsalternativ. Om du är överviktig kommer du sannolikt att gå ner mer i vikt genom diet och träning eller genom bariatriska procedurer – såsom gastric bypass-operation – än vad du skulle göra med fettsugning.

Du kan vara en kandidat för fettsugning om du har för mycket kroppsfett på specifika ställen men i övrigt har en stabil kroppsvikt. Tex är det vanligt att man efter graviditet fått en hängande mage eller buk som är väldigt svårt att träna bort. Bland annat så kan magmusklerna bli slappa och man får en fortsatt bullig mage. Mommy tuck är ett vanligt begrepp inom bukplastik och kan med lyckat resultat reducera överhängande hud på magen.

A fight demanding though times and strong research!

cancer

The fight against cancer is a long one, and with all certainly a particularly challenging one. The hard truth when it comes to cancer diseases is that there are not really any good solutions to it. Sure, there exist treatments, but they are usually very heavy on the human body and result in a lot of biological damage, such as damaged tissues. This is, of course, not an ideal situation in any way. However this is a consequence that many patients will be forced to face in order to get sufficiently treated against their, many times, very dangerous diseases. It is in the background of these grand, and many times remarkably heavy side effects and lasting effects, that the treatment of carbon ion therapy is growing.

 

We need sophisticated systems for efficiently treating cancer

Treating cancer is never an easy task, and the medical treatment is much more demanding than an ordinary medical treatment. Why?, you may ask yourself – well, the truth is that cancer itself is so complex, so hard to predict its nature and how it may react to one treatment or another. Many times cancer outsmarts the human mind who cannot completely understand the magnitude of this disease. Many times it is near impossible for us to fully grasp this disease and there will seem to lay little to no logic in the nature of cancer. This is why many within the field believe that the future of treatments will be found in, among others, machine learning radiation treatment. A form of treatment handling sophisticated techniques with its core in deep neural networks.

 

 

With this background in mind, it becomes more evident why we need advanced technology for treating such diseases.. It is the more simple truth in the subject regarding cancer as a disease and the treatment necessary for stopping, treating or restricting the great and very awful power cancer in it’s different forms holds. It is also growing more and more evident that the care of patients suffering from cancer is beneficial to be made as personal as possible. Because, in the same way that the nature of cancer is somewhat unclear and unpredictable, so can the human bodies way of reacting to such disease and treatments be. Oncology analytics system is focused on personalized medical care in the background of data through clinical research and treatments.

Genes are the recipe of humans

Genes are the recipe of humans

I mentioned earlier that through gene therapy you can modify the body’s function when it comes to what protein the body creates as an example. As you said, one or a few desired genes are inserted, genes are part of DNA and just like the rest of DNA it contains information. Exact genes contain information on how the cell should form a particular protein and if a particular gene is missing, so also information on how the body should form that protein, which usually causes a disease. It is now known that not only does a gene have the information how the body should form a protein, but each gene has information about how the cells should form three different proteins, on the other, similar proteins, so-called related proteins. It may also happen that you lack or have very few B-cells and T-cells, also called lymphocytes, so you suffer from a disease called SCID and are very serious. You then become incredibly susceptible to infections as the lack or absence of lymphocytes makes you lack an adaptive immune system. SCID stands for severe combined immunodeficiency and this immune deficiency is precisely due to the lack of t cells and b cells, in the immune system it is namely the t cells that attack the “enemy” (like a virus, for example) from within the cell while it is the b cell that attacks ” the enemy ”from the cell. The genes are part of the DNA and tell the body how, where and when the body should form the necessary protein. Much of the body is made up of proteins and the body is highly dependent on them as they are like the building blocks of the body.

 

DNA and how Base pairs are build up

You could say that DNA is a recipe for a human being, where all the “codes” about how a human is made up and different genetic characteristics, the genetic mass is like a recipe for how the body should create different proteins. Humans contain huge amounts of DNA, each cell holds about 3 m of DNA twisted like spirals. The DNA molecules consist of base pairs consisting of a total of 4 different types of nitrogenous bases.

 

In the picture to the right you can see four different nitrogenous bases – Adenin (A), Tymin (T), Guanin (G) and Cystosin (C). These four nitrogen bases are divided into different base pairs and they always sit together in that way, the base pairs being A&T and C&G.

 

Vectors and virus vectors

When introducing new genetic material into an organism, it takes more than just injecting the gene with a syringe, an example is when to cure a certain type of SCID, the goal is then that the body starts to produce an enzyme like the immune system is largely dependent on. This enzyme is called adenosine deaminase and causes only about 15% of all SCID diseases, namely there are several different causes of getting SCID which is a very serious form of immunodeficiency disease. In order for this to happen, the gene must enter the white blood cells, which is a vector used for this to happen. The vectors used in gene therapy are mainly viral vectors and you usually use a virus as viruses penetrate the white blood cells and can transport the gene that will replace the missing / defective gene. Different types of vectors are used, these types are called retroviruses, adenoviruses, adeno-associated viruses and Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). As I mentioned earlier, one can cure many different diseases with gene therapy since about 2,800 diseases are caused by single defective genes, which is why many different virus vectors are used. These different virus vectors fulfill different functions and can be adapted to the disease to be cured, for example if you want to transmit longer DNA sequences then the herpes virus vector is more suitable.
It may sound strange to introduce a virus into an already sick person, especially for example children who do not have a functioning immune system (SCID). A virus attacks the body and it spreads virus particles, it is called that it begins its lytic cycle, the infection can be very serious, it causes pathogenic effects and can sometimes even be fatal, which is why these viruses have to be manipulated. “A pathogen is defined as an organism that is capable of leading to disease or infection in the body.” you do as I said by manipulating their genome. You want to add one or a few genes to replace the damaged or missing genes, therefore you “paste” these genes, while “cutting out” other parts of the genome that are either ITR, LTR or TR, it varies which.

Different forms of therapy

When working with cancer you have to be on the front lines of technology. There is so much we still don’t know about the numerous variations of this deadly form of illness. To cope with this doctors, hospitals and researchers need to work together to establish more and more knowledge between them to ensure safe, smart and of course working treatments to whatever form of this menacing threat that might occur in the day to day life of a medical professional. Of course there are several forms of therapy to learn from and to use to understand more and get to know the different forms of cancer and how they behave.

 

Common form of therapy

There are several forms of therapy that are commonly used in diagnosing and treating different forms of cancer. One of the commons ones are Electron Beam Therapy (EBT).

EBT is regarded as a straightforward method for electron beam planning and provides a clear way of working with mixed electron and photon plans. Of course with either independent or multiple coupled beam sets for the individual treatment plan. EBT is working together with 3D visualization methods to easier enable the examination of the patients geometry and body. A module like this one is able to automatically generate at clear cut out shape similar to the ones generated by a 3D-CRT module through treat-and-protect tools.

 

Other forms of therapy

Another common form och therapy is tomotherapy. This is when the patient is only exposed to radiation on a specific place. Tomo comes from greek and means “slice”. This is done by a linear accelerator beam. This form of therapy should be used in relation to functions for

multi-criteria optimization, plan explorer and adaptive planning to design an optimal treatment plan for every individual patient.

Taking cancer treatment to the next level

Taking cancer treatment to the next level

Cancer is something everyone can almost relate to, almost all of us have a family, friends or someone related who has gone through the sometimes devastated treatment which includes chemo or radiation treatment. It is severely hard to see people go through cancer treatment and the bravery patients show while standing up against during the treatment. Doctors facing the everyday loss and gain in the eye of cancer. Gracefully the scientific advancement in both technology, treatment and the planning is going rapidly forward, companies such as RaySearch is focusing on adaptive treatment, automatic treatment planning to release time for doctors to target specifik cancer types which is by far more problematic to treat and complicated to define the proper treatment. Advancing cancer treatment has been the main goal for RaySearch for over 15 years. To make it easier and enhance cancer treatment you certainly have to dedicate a lot of time and money and of course a great amount of very talented people. RaySearch is bringing the best programers and cancer clinics in the world together putting up resources to up the game in increasing the survival rate for cancer patients in various treatments including VMAT and IMRT.
