  • Problem With Heart Transplants
    724 words
    Generic Heart Engineering: One problem in the medical field is the rate of heart transplants compared with the number of them needed. The disparity is too great for the medical community and needs to be solved. The biggest contributor to this predicament is the fact that hearts must be taken from recently deceased people and cannot be taken from living, willing donors because that would basically be suicide. Also, another problem with heart transplants is, after the statistical miracle of receiv...

  • Different Body Tissue
    636 words
    Cryogenics is the science that deals with subfreezing temperatures and how they effect matter. There are several different fields of cryogenics, such as cryobiology. Cryo biologists study the effect of severe cold on living things, usually warm-blooded animals. The purpose of most of these studies is to find a way to better store cells and tissues for transplantation that is not to be done immediately. Every day hearts, livers, kidneys, and other such organs are shipped across the country to be ...
  • Longitudinal Section Cardiac Muscle Cells

    THE MICROSCOPE EXPERIMENT 1 BACKGROUND: The use of a microscope is to provide a magnified view of objects (that are being analysed) that are otherwise to small to be seen by the naked eye. They can be described according to their illumination and lens arrangement. (i) Microscopes are able to use either light or electrons as their illumination source, which are respectively known as light powered and electron microscopes. (ii) Monocular microscopes have a single eye piece where as binocular micro...
  • Cell Types In Connective Tissue
    582 words
    Biology Assignment 1. Tissue types and their properties! Body tissues! The four core types of tissues in the body are; epithelial, connective, muscle and nervous. Each is designed for specific functions. Epithelial Tissues! Epithelial tissues are spread out all over the body. They cover all surfaces and also line body cavities and hollow organs. These tissues are also the major tissue in glands. Epithelial tissues have many functions including secretion, protection, excretion, diffusion, absorpt...
  • Tissue Of The Lymphatic System
    534 words
    The Lymphatic System The Lymphatic System is very important. It helps with the Cardiovascular system, and our immune systems. The Lymphatic System is made up of two semi-independent parts. One is a network of lymphatic vessels. The other part is various lymphoid tissues and organs all over the body. The functions of the Lymphatic System transporting fluids that have escaped from the blood vascular system, and the organs house phagocytic cells and lymphocytes. Lymphatic vessels are an elaborate s...
  • Cell Repair Machines
    1,235 words
    In Pursuit of Forever Although it is certainly an important operative factor, the commonly-interpreted explanation of aging and death, a sort of simple degeneration of the body's mechanical and chemical systems through time and usage, does not apply very well to the truth. The human body replaces every constituent atom naturally every seven years. Unlike machines, our bodies are in a constant state of self-repair and regulation, and it is the breakdown of the systems that govern these activities...
  • Cell Cultures
    768 words
    Cell Culture Methodology From Donor to Cell Lines Cellular tissue culture has come a long way since the beginning of the 20th century. Published papers in the early 1900+s report a theory and a procedure, although harsh and crude, to keep cells alive in media, and those cells+ behavior in vitro would be similar cells in vivo. The advantages of these cell cultures soon came into perspective, medical research could soar from this. Certain difficulties were soon overcome and a serum free media was ...
  • Fetal Tissue In Transplant Research
    2,518 words
    The use of Fetal Tissue in Research and Transplants Fetal tissue research is done to provide information to society that will eventually lead to the prevention of some diseases and hopefully one day help to discover a cure to some incurable diseases. Right now researchers are doing fetal tissue research to obtain information in areas of fetal tissue transplantation, the development and production of new vaccines, and lastly information on various birth defects and how to prevent or cure them. Fe...
  • Stem Cells In Adult Tissue
    1,269 words
    Stem Cells: What You Should Know About Stem Cells Before You Decide What Course Science Should Take. A topic of extended scientific and ethical debate in our society as of late has been the question of Stem Cell research. Going down this path could yield unprecedented medical leaps in treatment and prevention that medicine will be able to offer. Before I address the debate of whether or not Stem Cell research should be done, I want to first explain to my readers what stem cells are, how they com...
  • Effects Of Insulin On Glucose Metabolism
    1,551 words
    Stand on a street corner and ask people if they know what insulin is, and many will reply, 'Doesn " tit have something to do with blood sugar?' Indeed, that is correct, but such a response is a bit like saying 'Mozart? Wasn't he some kind of a musician?' Insulin is a key player in the control of intermediary metabolism. It has profound effects on both carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, and significant influences on protein and mineral metabolism. Consequently, derangements in insulin signal ling...
  • Amount Of Cell Phone Radiation
    1,311 words
    All scientists agree that cell phone radiation and its affect are something to look after [6]. Although cell phone companies insist that there product are safe, the critics fight that this is precisely what the tobacco companies said before its was widely accepted that smoking is a direct factor of lung cancer [3]. All cell phones emit some kind of electromagnetic radiation. When using a cell phone, both sending and receiving calls emit a tiny amount of energy. The cell phone emits non-ionizing ...
  • Connective Tissue And Muscle Cells
    533 words
    Epithelial tissue is the basic tissue which covers surface areas: the spaces, surfaces and the cavities of the body. There are three types of epithelial tissues: Covering and lining, Glandular, Sensory The covering and lining epithelia are associated with skin, the gastro-intestinal tract, the respiratory tract, etc. The function of these cells varies according to the location and morphology: the skin protects, the glands secrete, the gastro-intestinal tract absorbs, the alveoli of the lungs all...
  • Stem Cells From Adult Tissues
    2,018 words
    Stem cell research is one of the most interesting areas of biology today. Stem cells have two important characteristics that distinguish them from other types of cells. First, they are unspecialized cells that renew themselves for long periods through cell division. The second is that under certain physiologic or experimental conditions, they can be induced to become cells with special functions, such as the beating cells of the heart muscle or the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas (Nation...
  • Research On Fetal Tissue Research

    Amniotic Tissue Research: Is The Moral Cost Amniotic Tissue Research: Is The Moral Cost Too High To Ignore? It seems that there is always new groundbreaking technology introduced into society. Our hope is to find some magical chemical that will cure all diseases or cancer. Imagine that a miracle substance was found but came, at what some may think is to high a price. Amniotic tissue is remarkable in its healing abilities, however, many think it is wrong to utilize the tissue since it is taken fr...
  • Chief Cell Type Of Connective Tissue
