Chronic tonsillitis: symptoms and treatment of the disease

Chronic tonsillitis (CT) is common after a recent sore throat. It can also provoke any other infectious disease in which inflammation of the throat mucosa has been observed. Often people confuse chronic tonsillitis with angina. In fact, angina is the popular name for acute tonsillitis, which usually precedes the chronic form. In chronic tonsillitis, the lymphoid tissue of the tonsils of the pharynx is affected. In rare cases, the focus of infection can be localized on the tonsils, or lingual. An acute inflammatory process is observed, which is repeated throughout the year. Most often, children are affected by an illness, ranging from 15 to 63% of cases, depending on the time of year. Treatment should be started immediately, as other diseases develop against the background of the ailment. Among them are diseases of the skin, eyes, kidneys, and thyroid gland.

Causes of Chronic Tonsillitis (CT)

The root cause of chronic tonsillitis is infection. Most often, pathogens are: staphylococci, streptococci, pneumococci, Epstein-Barr virus, herpes virus, hemophilus bacillus, chlamydia, fungi. What could precede the disease? Continue reading

Toxoplasmosis during pregnancy – symptoms, prevention and treatment

Many pregnant women, instead of enjoying their excellent position, concentrate on diseases, sometimes extremely rare, like toxoplasmosis. In order to alleviate unnecessary anxiety and arm yourself with valuable recommendations for the prevention of toxoplasmosis, we will talk about this infection, its specifics during pregnancy, as well as discuss tests and treatment.

Toxoplasmosis during pregnancy

Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic (non-viral and non-bacterial) disease that causes the multicellular parasite Toxoplasma gonii. An extremely unpleasant infection to carry during pregnancy. The parasite lives and multiplies in the cat family, and other mammals, including humans, can be an intermediate host.

Toxoplasmosis is common in warm countries (South America, Asia), so for Russia it is considered a “forgotten” disease. However, 20% of the population of our country have the presence of antibodies-immunoglobulins in the blood, which indicates contact with this parasite in the past. Continue reading

Created material that excludes tissue rejection during transplantation

Scientists from Russia and the United States have proposed new material for regenerative medicine. The compounds in the composition of this material literally “turn off” the work of enzymes that are responsible for the inflammation reaction that occurs in immune cells in response to external stimuli. The results of the researchers’ work are published in the journal ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering.

“At the moment, researchers do not have a lot of tools to regulate the immune response in the arsenal. Continue reading
