What is Chemotherapy?

Chemotherapy is the treatment of cancer of chemicals that destroy malignant cells. They are often referred to as cytostatic, cytotoxic, antitumor or anticancer drugs. Name of chemotherapy is used as a treatment for malignant cell growth is controlled by chemical means. He is the founder of chemotherapy Paul Ehrlich German researcher (1854 to 1915th), who used the chemicals in the treatment of infectious diseases (salvarasan in the treatment of syphilis). The first modern chemotherapeutic agent in the treatment of tumors was poison nitrogen mustard applied to the 1943rd in the treatment of Hodgkin's disease . In recent decades, more than 50 types of cytotoxic drugs used to treat over 200 different malignant tumors. Normal cells in the body grow, divide, and die under control. The tumor occurs when the body loses that control, and the cells continue to rapidly divide and produce new cells. Cytostatics destroy malignant cells inhibiting their growth and division. These drugs do not act selectively, ie only the malignant cells, but can damage healthy cells in the body, especially those that divide rapidly: blood cells, the lining of the digestive tract, gametes, the hair follicle. That damage to healthy cells causing unwanted side effects of chemotherapy. Damaged cells usually regenerate after cessation of chemotherapy.
Because cancer drugs in different ways stop the cell cycle, in order to better antitumor effect is often at the same time give two or more types of drugs. This is known as polychemotherapy or combined with chemotherapy.

Winter colds(cold sore)

In the winter climatic conditions and the rejection of certain protective measures, reduces the resistance of the organism lljudskoga to pathogens, decreased immunity. Acute respiratory diseases are the most common illnesses in all age groups. They can range from the common cold and fever and influenza and pneumonia. Vaccination against common fever is pointless because it can not be vaccinated against a hundred different possible viruses that cause. Vaccination against influenza has been successfully done for years.
In the winter climatic conditions and the rejection of certain protective measures, reduces the resistance of the human organism to pathogens, decreased immunity.
The adverse winter conditions, which favor the development of acute respiratory diseases: a sudden change in climate, with daily fluctuations in temperature that the body needs to adjust, and it consumes energy. Less power to remain so for the immune defense processes. I breathe in the mouth, the mucosa is cooled and is more susceptible to inflammatory processes. Similarly with the mucous membrane occurs in a dry warm place. Short winter sun does not have enough ultraviolet light to kill infectious germs. Strong winter winds or drafts caused by loss of body heat. In winter, food is low in fresh fruits and vegetables that are sources of defensive vitamin A and C. Smoking increases the risk of illness as well as smoke-filled room in a closed room. In a closed space nezračenom easier transmission of pathogens from one person to another.
The implementation of personal protective measures is the best way to prevent disease. The first is the strengthening of the immune system. In doing so, helps shower alternating hot (three minutes) and cold water (20 seconds) in three cycles, which is well accepted as a habit from childhood. A similar effect was walking in the fresh air every day fast pace for 30-40 minutes. We should breathe only through the nose because the nose warms the air and purify. It is useful to the winter sun. Good thing less to stay indoors, smoky or polluted urban area. If circumstances do not allow spending of fresh fruits and vegetables, should daily take pharmaceutical preparations which contain the necessary vitamins and minerals. Sneeze and cough into a handkerchief should be, and if you happen to sneeze in your arm, then it is advisable not to handle or touch the items until the wash. You need enough sleep and be rested.

The disease occurs abruptly, with a very marked general symptoms. Dominated by high temperature 38-40 C, severe pain in the muscles, joints and bones, headache, feeling of malaise and weakness, loss of appetite. After a few days appeared hoarseness, cough, pain behind the sternum, sore throat and inflammation of the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis). The main risk of occurrence of influenza complications during or after an illness, disease, and should remain in bed. The most common complications are bacterial infections, particularly pneumonia. More often, the elderly, chronic patients and in those with reduced resistance of the organism. It is essential in the treatment of rest, take plenty of fluids, vitamins and means for lowering the temperature and pain. Taking antibiotics does not make sense since it is a viral disease that they do not work. Antibiotic treatment is only required in case of secondary bacterial infection. After preboljenja should take some time to recover due to the exhaustion caused by the flu. Before the advent of epidemic influenza, possibly in October vaccinated against it with your doctor. The vaccine is given as an injection into the upper third of the humerus. Immunity develops in two to three weeks. The protection lasts for six months and should be repeated every year.
