Ankylosing Spondylitis Remission

Ankylosing Spondylitis Remission

Here are some of the benefits you will get by reading this book and implementing the methods described inside: Learn about the main factors that trigger and sustain ankylosing spondylitis! And I don't refer here to the Hla-B27 genetic marker (which only creates a predisposition for this disease) but to the external factors needed to actually trigger AS. A detailed description of three alternative treatment options specifically designed to put ankylosing Spondylitis in complete and total remission. The science behind each of these treatment options with a clear explanation of the mental and biological processes involved. This will give you the necessary confidence that you won't be wasting your time by trying them out. Benefit from the experience of someone who went through the exact same thing as you did but didn't stop there and avoid the horrible side-effects of the traditional drugs, side-effects which are all the more likely to appear the longer you take those drugs! bullet point. Find out what other symptoms and chronic diseases have responded well to the cures described in this book!

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis DISH

A disease in which spinal rigidity of varying degrees is associated with the formation of anterior and anterolateral osteophytes. Flowing ossification results in bridges between several vertebrae.These hyperostotic complexes occur particularly in the thoracic and cervical regions, but there may be normal areas in between.The condition can resemble ankylosing spondylitis, but differs from it in the absence of sacroiliac disease, lack of involvement of the posterior apophyseal joints, and relative preservation of spinal function.The X-ray features have been reported in 2.4 5.4 of those over 40 years of age (Rotes-Querol 1996). Problems can result from compression of adjacent structures, or increased fragility of the diseased spine.

Fibrodysplasia myositis ossificans progressiva

A disorder of connective tissue in which there is progressive heterotopic bone formation involving axial muscles, joints, tendon, and ligaments. It is chemically and histologically identical to normal bone, but present in soft tissue (Connor 1996).These changes are superimposed on a variety of skeletal defects that particularly affect the spine and jaw. Diagnosis may be delayed unless the significance of the hand or feet anomalies is recognised (Smith 1998). Eventually the patient develops a rigid spine, kyphoscoliosis, and ankylosis of costovertebral and temporomandibular joints, to produce a clinical picture similar to that of ankylosing spondylitis.

Tuberculous Spondylitis

Note severe thoracolumbar kyphosis with acute angulation of the spine and striking increase in height of the vertebral bodies in the lordotic lumbar area. These 'tall' vertebrae indicate that vertebral growth had not ceased at the time of disease onset. Despite the severity of the spinal deformity, tuberculous kyphosis is not always associated with significant compression of the thecal sac Fig. 3.59. Tuberculous spondylitis.

Anti Clq Antibodies

C1q (460 kDa), a highly conserved protein, is part of the first component of the complement system. The biological function of C1q is to bind immune complexes via its six globular domains and of a variety of other non-immune activators of the complement system, including CRP, DNA, fibronectin, fibrinogen, and lipopolysaccharides, by its collagen-like region (CLR). In immune complexes, C1q is normally bound to Fc regions of IgG in order to fulfill the activation function of C1q within the classical pathway 156 . For many years, C1q was therefore used in radioimmunoassays and ELISAs to detect circulating immune complexes (CIC) in numerous diseases, including SLE 157-159 . In SLE, the CIC titers determined by C1q assays correlated well with disease activity and renal involvement. However, an alternative means of binding C1q has also been described for use in cases where high-affinity autoantibodies directly recognize the CLR of C1q through the antibody F(ab) antigen-combining sites...
