Patient discussion about histogenesis

Q. I want to get cure for asthma and develop my cardiac tissue. What is the best exercise for me to do? This is Daron, 20/m. I have had asthma since I was 3 yrs old, and suffer from exercise induced asthma as well as weather and food. Running is the worst thing that induces asthma in me. I want to get cure for asthma and develop my cardiac tissue to ensure fitness. What is the best exercise for me to do? I will be very thankful if I get suitable suggestion or advice..

A. daron,their is no cure for asthma--asthma is controlled by meds--if you dont have one get a pulmonary DR.--you can try riding a bike,and walking,i was born with asthma and i have the same problem as you,--you can try walking or biking for a little amount of time each day,--you can also try taking your meds before doing any exercize,THere are meds on the market,that can help you to do the things that you like.--mrfoot56---peace

The histogenesis of hemangiopericytoma has not been sufficiently explained.
This preference for a testicular location reflects the different histogenesis of testicular and ovarian germ cell tumors, the former originating from primitive germ cells with a malignant character, (3) while the latter mostly have a parthenogenetic origin from postmeiotic or meiotic cells.
Lactating adenoma is a rare tumor and there are differing views on its histogenesis. James et al considered lacating adenoma to be a pure and readily recognisable morphological form clearly distinguishable from tubular adenoma and fibroadenoma that is always related to current or recent pregnancy.(2) According to them, most tumors diagnosed as lactating adenomas are diagnosed during pregnancy and do not have lactational secretion.

Congenital granular cell epulis is a rare but distinct entity of uncertain histogenesis. It can easily be distinguished by clinical characteristics (maxillary alveolar ridge of newborn females), microscopic features (granular cells, attenuated overlying squamous epithelium, capillary network), and immunohistochemical pattern (absence of S-100 staining).
