Patient discussion about differentiate

Q. How do you differentiate between fluorosis and caries? Both appear as white spots on the teeth, so clinically how do you differentiate between them? I know it has something to do with their appearance while wet and dry, but I am not sure what? please help me I can't find this in any book.

A. Only mild fluorosis is seen as white stop lesion on the tooth. It usually comes with brown spots. Look for them. Another method is trying to stick a dental explorer into it (not the Microsoft one- it’ll only be a portal for viruses..) and because caries is demineralized area it will feel kind of sticky. But I wouldn’t do that…it can harm the teeth. Another way is by an x ray. Fluorosis- you will see it as a whiter spot. Caries- a more translucent spot.

Q. Differentiate Wheezing & Asthma My sister who is 29 years old is suffering from wheezing for the past 7 years. Its not a genetic problem. Some times she uses inhaler for temporary recovery. She tried English medicine, homeo and other treatments. Is it an Asthma? I find very difficult in seeing her struggle when she find hard to breathe. Please help to make her free out of this struggle.

A. i see what scares you...it's frustrating to see your loved ones suffer and you cannot help. if she is has an inhaler- that mean she has been to the Dr. and he prescribed her some kind of medicine. without giving a diagnose first...?

Q. how can i differentiate between normal stomach ache and an Appendicitis? I've been having a strange sharp pain in my stomach lately and a friend of mine told me it could be Appendicitis.

A. When you have Appendicitis, there should be a sharp pain on the right lower Abdomen. but you mustn't forget that Appendicitis is an inflammation. which means you'll have a fever some time in the near future, and it always get worse. not like other Abdominal pains. you'll vomit probably. i had my Appendix removed 2 years ago. don't worry, it's not too bad ;).

In 2006 the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT) proposed basic criteria for determining MSCs, namely, adhesive fibroblast-like cells that are CD105, CD73, and CD90 positive and CD45, CD34, CD14, or CD11b, CD19, or CD79a and HLA-DR negative, capable of directed differentiation into adipogenic, osteogenic, and chondrogenic lineages.
We now examine the effects of product and store differentiations on equilibrium prices and profits.
These results follow intuition and are almost definitional since both product and store differentiations can reduce the intensity of price competition between products and between stores.
The multicultural has itself become a "floating signifier" whose enigma lies less in itself than in the discursive uses of it to mark social processes where differentiation and condensation seem to happen almost synchronically.
The cells were cultured and expanded until the beginning of the differentiations experiments.
In this way, MSCs derived from bone marrow show a higher potential for osteogenic differentiation [6], while MSCs of synovial origin show a greater tendency toward chondrogenic differentiation [7].
Pluripotent stem cells (PSCs), including embryonic stem cells (ESCs), have unique properties of self-renewal and differentiation capacities of all cell types in the body.
Whilst HDACi were originally discovered by their ability to induce erythroid differentiation of erythroleukemia cells [11,12], the subsequent use of HDACi in cancer therapy has concentrated on its functions as a cytotoxic agent.
Mineral compositions vary as magmas evolve in sub-volcanic, lithospheric magma chambers by assimilation and differentiation. Magmas assimilate wall rocks in these chambers.
The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of MMC in supporting ASC proliferation and multilineage differentiation capacity and analyze the MMC effect on immunophenotype and morphology of ASCs in different culturing conditions considering clinical applications.
An in vitro differentiation process to obtain specific cell type from stem cells is required for stem cell therapy.
