Beneficial effect of low-level laser therapy in acute lung injury after i-I/R is dependent on the secretion of IL-10 and independent of the TLR/MyD88 signaling

Abstract

              <p>The use of low-level laser for lung inflammation treatment has been evidenced in animal studies as well as clinical trials. The laser action mechanism seems to involve downregulation of neutrophil chemoattractants and transcription factors. 332 more words

Presto lift—a facelift that preserves the retaining ligaments and SMAS tethering

Abstract

              <span> 
                </span><h3>Background</h3> 
                <p>Producing youthful facial appearance by face-lifting often comes along with an undesired loss of patient’s individual phenotype. This may result from insufficient preservation of retaining ligaments, the “guardians of facial identify,” and from severance of the intersegmental connections of the superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS), which tether, structure, and compartmentalize facial soft tissue into defined, relevant anatomical zones.</p> 

              <span> 
                </span><h3>Methods</h3> 
                <p>The technique reported here preserves most retaining ligaments. 212 more words
