For the first time, researchers have developed a new technology that types Braille or subtitles of television channels in real time and helps deaf-blind people "watch" television without intermediaries.The people, who have tried it, highlighted the advantage of being able to access information they previously could not, in real time and without intermediaries, and they have also praised its ability to transmit to Braille lines and the ability to adjust the reading and viewing speed.

Researchers from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid explained Pervasive SUB, it compiles all the subtitles of television channels and sends them to a central server which forwards them to smartphones or tablets.From there, they are sent to the Braille line of the deaf-blind person thanks to the GoAll app, which integrates the software, is compatible with different Braille lines and makes it possible to control the speed of the subtitles that are captured directly from the TV broadcast in perfect synchronization.
The lead researcher García Crespo said that at Telefonica their endeavor is to become a more accessible company and that way contribute to equal opportunities for all.The research team is now providing this service free of charge to anyone who needs it. Interested parties need only to download the GoAll app, available on ¡OS and Android.
Deaf-blind persons suffer a combined deterioration of sight and hearing, which impedes their access to information, communication and mobility in a way that seriously affects everyday abilities necessary for a minimally independent lif

Researchers have found that an antibody -- originally developed for studying the autoimmune condition multiple sclerosis -- can promote the immune system`s ability to fight cancer and decreases tumour growth.In a study published in the journal Science Immunology, the researchers reported that the antibody decreased tumour growth in models of melanoma (skin cancer), glioblastoma (brain cancer) and colorectal carcinoma, making it an attractive candidate for cancer immunotherapy.
The antibody can precisely target regulatory T cells which in turn unleash the immune system to kill cancer cells. T cells (Tregs) which help maintain the immune system`s tolerance of "self," can, inadvertently, promote cancer`s growth by preventing the body`s immune system from detecting and attacking cancer cells.
The researchers, led by neurologist Howard Weiner from Brigham and Women`s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, found that they could precisely target Tregs using an antibody.The team developed these so-called anti-LAP antibodies initially to investigate the development of multiple sclerosis, but realised their work had implications for the study of cancer.
In the current study, the team used preclinical models to investigate how well anti-LAP antibodies could work in blocking the essential mechanisms of Tregs and restoring the immune system`s ability to fight cancer. They found that anti-LAP acts on multiple cell populations to promote the immune system`s ability to fight cancer, including increasing the activity of certain types of T cells and enhancing immune memory.
"In addition to studying its therapeutic effect, we wanted to characterise the mechanism by which the anti-LAP antibody can activate the immune system," said lead author Galina Gabriely, a scientist in the Weiner laboratory. "We found that it affects multiple arms of the immune system," Gabriely said.

Ayurveda Remedy for Infertility
Ayurvedic Remedies For Infertility

Infertility is a small word yet it is the focus of a very vast science! Researchers, doctors, herbalists, Ayurveda physicians spend their lives mastering this single aspect. Research by the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that in 2010, 48.5 million couples worldwide were unable to have a child due to primary or secondary infertility.

Given these figures and facts, one can imagine that this specialized science can be adapted under specialist care. It is not a field where kitchen shelves or self-medication can work wonders. The Ayurvedic approach should also be through a good, experienced physician rather than “trial and error” method because time and reproductive system is the essence for conception.

The Internet is full of tricks and treats, ideas and remedies from simple sneezing to complicated infertility. This article is meant to pave a path for the couples who are trying to conceive with right attitudes, lifestyle, and dietary choices.

Male Infertility

More than 90% of male infertility is due to low sperm counts, poor sperm quality, or both. Sperm abnormalities can be caused due to congenital birth defects, disease, chemical exposure, and lifestyle habits. The remaining cases of male infertility can be caused by anatomical problems, hormonal imbalances, and genetic defects.

Female Infertility

Female Infertility may be caused by an underlying medical condition that damages the fallopian tubes, interferes with ovulation, or causes hormonal complications. These medical conditions may be pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, premature ovarian failure, uterine fibroids, autoimmune disorders, birth defects of the reproductive tract, cancer or tumor, clotting disorders, diabetes, obesity, thyroid disorder, etc.

Drinking too much alcohol, exercising too much, eating disorders or poor nutrition may also be creating problems in conception.

The Ayurvedic treatment depends on the underlying cause. All underlying causes of infertility include therapies of unction (oil), sudation (sweat), and mild use of the five pañchakarma measures, herbal tampon, medicated vaginal douches. Oil abhyanga (massage) can always be done, using Chitrak (Plumbago Zeylanica), Guduchi (Tinospora Cordifolia), Bala (Sida Cordifolia) with boiled milk and sesame oil.

Ayurvedic Remedies For Infertility

I am listing some of the corrective remedies which help in all kinds of disorders.

Reduce/Quit Alcohol Intake

Alcohol intake had a significant effect on infertility in both males and females. The qualities of alcohol are light, hot, sharp, subtle, sour, intoxicating, swift, quick-acting, rough and drying. All these qualities are the opposite of qualities of Ojas – life forming element. Alcohol also depletes the quality of sperm and ovum along with other reproductive tissues. It might become a reason for your infertility. Thus, if you are trying to conceive – quit alcohol. Same goes for caffeine and smoking!

Eat Right

Parched rice (soaked) + sugar candy (as per the taste)+ milk (300 ml) – Eat this natural cereal for your breakfast or dinner. Cardamom powder(1 pinch) should be added for females and nutmeg powder(1 pinch) should be added for males.
Ginger tea (hot water 200 ml + ½ tsp freshly grated ginger) consumed daily morning helps in detoxification of the body.
Turmeric and saffron milk at bedtime is beneficial for males as well as females.
Beneficial vegetables – artichoke, asparagus, bottle gourd.
Beneficial fruits – red raspberry, Indian gooseberry.
Beneficial seeds – fenugreek, sesame.
Other beneficial foods – cow’s ghee, moong, barley, old wheat and rice in their natural forms, pure honey, almonds.
Practice Yoga

Yoga is one of the best ways to support reproductive health.

Dhanurasana (Bow Pose)
Sarvangasana (Bridge Pose)
Viprit Karani (Legs-up-the-pose)
Baddha Konasana (Reclining bound angle)
Janu Sirshasana (Revolved head-to-knee pose)
Paschimottanasana (Seated forward bend)
These are some beneficial poses for infertility. They help by improving blood circulation in reproductive systems, massaging reproductive organs, stimulating and correcting hormones, reducing stress.

Reduce Stress

Stress plays a major role in slowing down your fertility be it in males or females. A calm, peaceful, happy and healthy state of mind and bedroom environment is the essence of not only a healthy sex life but also fertility. So knowingly or unknowingly work-life stress, social stress, inadequate sleep, financial stress or stress related to non-conception might be hindering your becoming pregnant.

Especially for females during menstruation, rather than focusing on PMS, the woman should consciously concentrate only on good and positive thoughts.

Ayurvedic Herbs

Although it’s best to take it under physician’s supervision you can instill these herbs in your daily lives. They are some of the best herbs which are used in infertility.

Gokshura – It is one of the best herbs for genitourinary conditions for both males and females.
Kapikachhu – It is one of the best tonics and aphrodisiacs for the reproductive system in males.
Kum Kuma – It is a herb useful in the treatment of impotence & infertility in both males and females.
Shatavari – It is one of the main herbs for the immune and female reproductive systems.
Varahikand – A great male/female reproductive tonic useful in impotency, infertility, increasing semen, milk (progesterone), and other hormonal secretions (pituitary, thyroid, estrogen), etc.
One in every five infertile couple conceives without undergoing any treatment or efforts. By encouraging the above-given tips and habits you might also conceive and experience parenthood in no time. A pinch of positivity and enthusiasm with these tips in your life for three months can change your lives. So wish you all the best in the journey toward fertility.

Weird things that can mess up with your fertility
Infertility is a relatively common condition. When patients are confronted with this diagnosis, there are medical, psychological, and financial sequelae. Patients often wonder if there is anything they can do to optimize their natural fertility or increase the effectiveness of infertility treatments.

A healthy man and a healthy woman gives birth to a healthy child. There are many instances when a healthy couple is not able to conceive because of female related infertility, male infertility or unidentified circumstances. Apart from this there are many factors that are against fertility which no one has ever thought of. If a couple is trying to get pregnant or even are planning for it in the near future, consideration should be given to following factors that really mess up with ones fertility and the suggested changes or recommendations should be adopted to boost fertility.

1. Artificial Night time Light

Habit of staring at smartphone or tablet screens at night, can disrupt sleep cycle. Artificial nighttime light exposure can harm both ability to conceive and fetal development if already pregnant. Late-night light exposure can suppress melatonin production, the "sleep hormone," that's also produced in the reproductive tract and blocks eggs from damaging free radicals, particularly during ovulation. Insufficient melatonin production can also disrupt a developing fetus' internal clock, resulting in long-term problems and further confusing a woman's biological clock.

2. Junk Food

Consumption of burger and fries deprives of right nutrients, such as monounsaturated fats, zinc, vitamin D, and B6. It means, body’s regulation of critical reproductive hormones like progesterone, insulin, and testosterone is disrupted. Consume healthy foods to boost body’s potential of having a baby. Also, make it certain to eat a heavy and nutritious breakfast because research published in Clinical Science found that consuming about half of daily calories in the a.m. could increase fertility. Junk food can also have adverse effect on weight, blood sugar, insulin production, cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.

3. Cholesterol Level

Results indicate that those couples in which either one or both had high cholesterol took considerably longer to become pregnant than those couples with cholesterol within the normal scale. Cholesterol levels may be an important factor in healthy couples who want to conceive and who don't have infertility problems. Cholesterol might be related to fertility because it is a building block of both male and female hormones. These hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone in women and testosterone in men, play a role in a couple's ability to become pregnant. They influence the quality of men's sperm and semen, as well as ovulation, implantation and the maintenance of a healthy pregnancy in women. Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels is important throughout life, both when people are younger and hoping to start a family and as they get older and want to prevent heart disease.

4. Stress

While stress does not cause infertility, infertility most definitely causes stress. Stress play a role in the success of infertility treatments, including in vitro fertilization (IVF). Being unable to get pregnant when one wants to, can be a huge source of stress, anxiety, and depression. While no one expects patients to approach fertility treatment stress-free, finding ways to minimise stress while pursuing treatment can help. Meditation, yoga, music therapy, walking, conversation with the partner does help in reducing stress. The goal of stress reduction is to minimise, not eliminate stress, by finding the technique that serves the patients needs the best.

5. Poor Oral Health

A study in the Journal of Periodontology found that women who needed fertility treatments had higher levels of gum bleeding and inflammation than those who conceived naturally. Women with gum disease took an average of 7.1 months to become pregnant – two months longer than women without gum disease (5.0 months). Women in child bearing age should be encouraged to have regular preventive dental check-ups in order to maintain good oral and periodontal health.

6. Smoking

If trying to get pregnant and is smoker, stop smoking now. Quitting may be one of the best things one can do for their health and for their fertility. Smokers are more likely to have fertility problems than non smokers. If smoking is done for many years, or smoke many cigarettes per day, risk for fertility problems increases. Smoking can lead to fertility problems, including ovulation problems, genetic issues, damage to reproductive organs, damage to eggs or premature menopause and increased risk of cancer and that of miscarriage. In addition, smokers that try fertility treatments tend to take longer to get pregnant. Smokers are also more likely to give birth to babies with health problems. Exposure to cigarette smoke for even just a few days can affect health and fertility.

7. Weight

There is a direct effect of weight on fertility as well as the outcome of infertility treatment and pregnancy. Many underweight, overweight, and obese women have no problem getting pregnant. But others will have problems conceiving, most often due to ovulation problems. There is good evidence that obesity lowers the success rates of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Studies have shown lower pregnancy rates and higher miscarriage rates in obese women and they are at an increased risk for developing pregnancy-induced (gestational) diabetes and high blood pressure (pre-eclampsia). Children of obese mothers are at increased risk of some birth defects and having a high birth weight. Low sperm counts and low sperm motility (movement) have been found more often in overweight and obese men than in normal-weight men.

8. Hormonal Imbalance

When a couple has difficulty conceiving, their fertility specialist will investigate whether they have a hormone imbalance.
A hormone imbalance occurs when hormones, the chemical messengers that help regulate body functions, are at improper levels, resulting in reproductive problems and infertility. Hormonal imbalances are quite common in women and men. However, for couple trying to conceive, hormonal imbalances can make it extremely difficult to get pregnant. Some women who suffer from hormonal imbalances are infertile and can not have children. Other hormonal imbalances effects are able to be reversed through treatments and medications, and these couples can go on to have successful pregnancies. Drug therapy to correct a hormone imbalance is the most common treatment for infertility.

9. Medications

It is less familiar that certain over-the-counter and prescription medications may also affect fertility. Woman's menstrual cycle is tightly controlled by the interaction between the brain, ovaries, and uterus, and any health problem or medication that disrupts this communication could adversely affect ovulation and make it challenging for women to achieve a pregnancy. Medicines can alter ovulation, and endometrial or uterine receptivity to a pregnancy, and it can possibly change sperm production. So if thinking about getting pregnant, talk to an ob-gyn about what medications are safe or unsafe, what might affect ability to conceive, and which medicines are currently taken. That way one may be able to find an alternative that won't interfere with getting pregnant.

10. Age and Fertility

Age is the most important factor affecting a woman’s chance to conceive and have a healthy child. As women age their fertility declines. A woman’s fertility starts to decline in her early 30s, with the decline speeding up after 35. At 40 a woman only has a 5% chance of becoming pregnant in any month. This is because a woman is born with all the eggs she is going to have in her lifetime. As she ages her eggs age with her, decreasing in quality and number. Also, the risk of miscarriage, and complications in pregnancy and childbirth, increase. As men age, levels of testosterone fall, and the volume and concentration of sperm change.

11. Breastfeeding

It is a common tale that one can’t get pregnant while breastfeeding because of the impact of breastfeeding and fertility rates. This is true, as long as you nurse according to the rules of natural child spacing. The same hormones that make milk suppress the release of reproductive hormones. While breastfeeding full-time most mothers do not ovulate and do not have menstrual periods. This means that pregnancy can be avoided, at least for a while.

12. Low Iron Levels May Affect Your Fertility

women who do not get sufficient amounts of iron may suffer anovulation (lack of ovulation) and possibly poor egg health, which can inhibit pregnancy at a rate 60% higher than those with sufficient iron stores in their blood. When the blood does not get enough iron, anemia, or an insufficient number of red blood cells, may develop. Since it is these red blood cells that deliver oxygen to all of the body’s tissue and organs including the ovaries and uterus, this deficiency may cause the eggs stored in the ovaries to weaken over time and become unviable. Worse yet, should conception occur, anemia makes it impossible for the growing fetus’ cells to divide and grow properly. This may result in a miscarriage in some cases.

13. Folic Acid Deficiency

If there’s one vitamin you should be consuming when you’re trying to get pregnant or you anticipate pregnancy in the future, its folic acid. Women who take folic acid supplements every day have a better chance of getting pregnant and it aids in conception too. Those taking a supplement regularly had a 40 per cent lower risk of suffering problems producing eggs - the second biggest cause of female infertility. Women hoping to become pregnant are advised to take a 0.4mg supplement of folic acid every day after stopping contraception, and for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. The easiest and most reliable way to secure this intake is to take daily folic acid supplement or begin consuming sunflower seeds, spinach, eggs and grains like pastas and cereals for a natural folic acid boost.

14. Phthalates Use Of Cosmetics

Phthalates are a group of synthetic chemicals used in plastics and some cosmetics. It compromise your ability to conceive. Studies have shown phthalate exposure can mess with a man’s fertility and women with the most phthalates in their systems were twice as likely to suffer from implantation failure after IVF procedures as compared to women with the lowest level of phthalates. Many of the products that we apply directly to our skin are made from the same harsh chemicals used in industry, and are known hormone disruptor’s for both men and women.

15. Chronic Health Conditions

When you’re fighting a chronic illness, your reproductive system becomes a fairly low priority for your body, which may need to pay more attention to vital organs like the heart, brain, kidneys and lungs, and less attention to the ovaries or uterus. A wide variety of chronic illnesses, from heart disease to diabetes, can suppress both ovulation and sperm production, which can make it difficult to get pregnant. Thyroid disorders can also stop ovulation. If you’re fighting cancer, the treatments themselves, including chemotherapy drugs and radiation to the pelvic area, can suppress fertility. If you live with a chronic illness, talk to your doctor about ways to get your symptoms under control and what you may be able to do to improve your fertility odds.

Pregnancy is a result of a complex combination of factors and events. Healthy lifestyles are important for everyone — but they’re especially important if one is trying to get pregnant. What is put into body will definitely affect health, eggs and sperm, and it's important to take control for the best possible outcome. Making lifestyle modifications may aid in achieving the ultimate goal of a healthy pregnancy. It is the role of the physician to help the patient identify modifiable risk factors, especially given the cost and time commitment associated with fertility treatments. All patients should be encouraged to strive for a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.

Struggling with infertility can be a highly upsetting and personal experience. As the rates of infertility continue to climb we must look for all natural solutions when this natural process of fertility goes awry. The costs of traditional drug and surgery treatments for infertility are not only costly financially, they can take a physical toll down the road for both the parents and conceived child.

Healthy lifestyle habits can help preserve fertility for a longer period of time. So, if a couple is trying to get pregnant, or foresee a mini-you sometime in the future, it’s imperative to learn what changes might be in stock that will boost the chances of pregnancy. Consider the simple steps that will help keep a healthy reproductive system of women. It is common sense advice that one keeps her in a healthy condition when trying for a baby.

If you are thinking about pregnancy and if there is any initial hindrances consult OB-GYN doctor. It can help identify ways to help improve fertility and increase chances of getting pregnant. These are just some of the dos and donts that can impact successful conception and more importantly, the future health of the baby. There are other factors and it is important to learn all one can, about how small changes can impact fertility and the baby that is to be born. Specialists can help identify ways to improve fertility and boost chances of getting pregnant.

A new dtudy has been published in The Lancet - Infectious Diseases, the breakthrough deals with how patients take their medication and adhere to regimes, as too many face irregular regimes or discontinue medication.A new program or better patient assistance was designed by University of Aberdeen and Academic Medical Centre (Amsterdam) teams. University of Aberdeen Professor, Marjin de Bruin, stated ‘this is the first adherence intervention in HIV care that demonstrates clinical and cost effectiveness. The intervention can be applied in routine clinical care, and the effects have been reproduced in consecutive trials. Although HIV medications are very effective, they can have quite a few side effects and people with HIV don’t usually experience any symptoms of the disease, so for these and other reasons it is unsurprising that adherence among some patients is suboptimal. We designed a programme in such a way that it would fit in with routine care and only adds about 10 minutes to the consultation. Our intervention has proved to be very successful at improving drug-adherence and in turn reducing treatment failure. Importantly, these effects were most profound amongst patient groups from which we know struggle most with this treatment. As well as important for patients’ own health, having a very low viral load means that people are extremely unlikely to transmit the virus to other people. So not only is this a significant improvement to individual patients’ health, it is also important for public health because it may help to curb the pandemic by interrupting the transmission of the virus. That the intervention also saved money rather than required extra resources was unexpected, and strongly suggested that introducing this programme in routine HIV care is beneficial for patients and safety. It is very important to note that the medication non-adherence is very common with long and short-term treatments for many conditions, often contributing to poor patient outcomes and increased health care expenditure. We will therefore seek to adapt and test the benefits of this intervention in a range of other chronic condition.’

Noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT), also known as noninvasive prenatal diagnosis (NIPD), is a screening method for detecting certain specific chromosomal abnormalities in a developing baby. Noninvasive prenatal testing is a sophisticated blood test that examines fetal DNA in the maternal bloodstream to determine whether your baby is at risk of Down syndrome, extra sequences of chromosome 13 (trisomy 13), extra sequences of chromosome 18 (trisomy 18) or a sex chromosome abnormality, such as Turner syndrome. The testing can also be used to determine a rhesus (Rh) blood type. Noninvasive prenatal testing is much more sensitive and specific than traditional first and second trimester screening. As a result, noninvasive testing can often help women who have certain risk factors avoid invasive testing, such as: Amniocentesis. During this procedure, a small sample of the fluid that surrounds and protects the baby during pregnancy (amniotic fluid) is removed from the uterus for testing. Chorionic villus sampling (CVS). During CVS, a small sample of the wispy projections that are part of the developing placenta (chorionic villi) are removed from the placenta for testing. Amniocentesis and CVS both carry a slight risk of miscarriage. Noninvasive prenatal testing can determine whether baby is at risk of a chromosomal condition. Risk factors might include older maternal age or having previously given birth to a baby who has Down syndrome, trisomy 13 or trisomy 18. If patient a carrier of an X-linked recessive disorder. X-linked recessive disorders, such as Duchenne's muscular dystrophy or a blood-clotting disorder (hemophilia), typically affect only males. If PT have an Rh negative blood type. Noninvasive prenatal testing can determine baby's Rh factor. If mother Rh negative and baby is Rh positive(from husband ), mother might produce Rh antibodies after exposure to baby's red blood cells. This is called becoming sensitized. (This is typically not a concern during a first pregnancy, but can be a concern during subsequent pregnancies and due to excessive RBC BREAKDOWN high serum bilirubin may kill or badly affect the baby.) The new blood test NIPT will let expecting mothers know the sex of their baby as early as the first trimester. The falling sex ratio is already a bother for policymakers and sociologists in India. Now, scientists have developed a new blood test that will allow early detection of foetal gender, further endangering the girl child.Unlike ultrasound tests currently used for finding out the sex of an unborn child, the new blood test would let expecting mothers know the sex of their baby as early as the first trimester. The test measures the ratio of two crucial enzymes, DYS14 and GAPDH, from foetal DNA circulating in the mother's blood. The ratio is an effective indicator of foetal gender, Korean scientists who developed the test said. The research results have been published in the latest issue of the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. The non-invasive test will require just a drop of blood from the pregnant woman. Currently, till the onset of ultrasound, the procedure of amniocentesis is used for sex determination. But it is invasive and carries the risk of miscarriage. Moreover, it can't be performed until 11 weeks of pregnancy. Ultrasound gives reliable determination of foetal gender but it can't be performed in the first trimester. The use of ultrasound for sex determination has been outlawed in India, following its misuse for abortion of the female foetus, which has led to skewed sex ratio in many parts of the country. Researchers from the University School of Medicine in Seoul claim the ratio test will be the first of its kind. "This can reduce the need for invasive procedures in pregnant women," researcher Hyun Mee Ryu said. The study involved analysing the blood samples from 203 women during their first trimester. The presence of circulating foetal DNA and the quantity of the two enzymes were confirmed through a series of tests. The results were confirmed when the women gave birth. "The study shows it is possible to predict the sex of a child as early as the first few weeks after conception," Gerald Weissmann, journal editor, said. While the test is a major scientific advance, it can be misused in India. IT IS HIGHLY FREELY DONE IN INDIA BUY MANY LABS AND IS NOT REGULATED AND GRADUALLY COST IS COMING DOWN IN COMPETITION AND LIKELY TO BE MISUSED FOR SEX DETERMINATIONS AS COST IS HIGH BUT IN GROWING MIDDLE CLASS ECONOMY MANY CAN SPEND

Eat Greens And Be Young !!!!!
Eating vegetables provides health benefits – people who eat more vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases. Vegetables provide nutrients vital for health and maintenance of your body.
It contains ---
1. Potassium - help to maintain healthy blood pressure. Rich sources are sweet potatoes, white potatoes, white beans, tomato products (paste, sauce, and juice), beet greens, soybeans, lima beans, spinach, lentils, and kidney beans.

2. Dietary fiber - helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower risk of heart disease. Fiber is important for proper bowel function. It helps reduce constipation and diverticulosis. Fiber-containing foods such as vegetables help provide a feeling of fullness with fewer calories.
3. Folate (folic acid) - helps the body form red blood cells. Women of childbearing age who may become pregnant should consume adequate folate from foods, and in addition 400 mcg of synthetic folic acid from fortified foods or supplements. This reduces the risk of neural tube defects, spina bifida, and anencephaly during fetal development.
4. Vitamin A - keeps eyes and skin healthy and helps to protect against infections
5. Vitamin C - helps heal cuts and wounds and keeps teeth and gums healthy. Vitamin C aids in iron absorption.

So friends, to be fresh and look young you need to eat fresh veggies...
