medical illustration of The cyclooxygenase enzyme is shown anchored to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Above it, released prostaglandin hormones soar into the cell. Inside it, arachidonic acid is converted into prostaglandins by cyclooxygenase by adding two oxygen molecules. Celecoxib (Celebrex) COX-2 selective NSAID is blocked from the channel of access for COX-1, but gains entry at COX-2 site, and thus inhibits the active site for pain prostaglandin creation. medical illustration of Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (aHUS) manifests by chronic uncontrolled complement activation leading to the continuous activation of platelets and endothelial cells. The resulting thrombi cause thrombotic microangiopathy which may result in sudden fatal thrombotic complications or in the progressive failure of vital organs, including the kidney, heart and brain. medical illustration of The anatomical substrate of the blood-brain barrier is the neurovascular unit, comprised of the cerebral microvascular endothelium, astrocytes, pericytes, neurons, microglia and the extracellular matrix. medical illustration of The anatomical site of aqueous humour production in healthy ciliary processes epithelium and the aqueous humor drainage through healthy trabecular meshwork in the anterior chamber angle. medical illustration of Bone marrow is the site of hematopoiesis – the formation of hematopoietic stem cells which give rise to the three classes of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets.
medical illustration of The diabetic glomerulus exhibits glomerular hypertrophy and mesangial matrix expansion due to the increase of intra- and extracellular proteins from advanced glycation end-products, increased basement membrane thickness, and podocyte apoptosis. medical illustration of Two different molecules (c-MET and EGFR) play multiple key roles in human cancer. a) Both EGFR and c-MET signaling can drive nonsquamous non-small cell lung cancer (nsNSCLC); b) c-MET can compensate for the loss of EGFR signaling, allowing tumors to progress; c) Tivantinib selectively blocks c-MET signaling. When combined with the EGFR inhibitor the two critical cancer-signaling axes can be stopped, halting the progression of nsNSCLC.
medical illustration of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) has yielded promising results for patients who were mostly medically inoperable. The good results have led some institutions to treat medically operable patients with SBRT.

medical illustration of Precisely aimed ionizing radiation beams coming from different directions meet at a specific point to deliver radiation treatment to the tumor location. medical illustration of DNA damage can occur naturally from metabolic or hydrolytic processes or be induced by outside influences, and results in an alteration of the chemical structure of DNA, such as a break in a strand of DNA, a base missing from the backbone of DNA, or a chemically changed base.
medical illustration of RapidArc delivers a precisely sculpted 3D dose distribution in a single 360-degree rotation of the linear accelerator gantry through an algorithm that simultaneously changes rotation speed, shape of the treatment aperture and delivery dose rate. medical illustration of An acoustic neuroma on the nerve sheath of the vestibular portion of the 8th cranial nerve is an operatively challenging tumor ideally suited for stereotactic radiosurgery, a volumetric modulated arc technique that allows for highly conformal, intensity-modulated dose distributions to be delivered with a single 358° rotation of the gantry of the linear accelerator. medical illustration of An intra-cranial meningioma arising from the cavernous sinus at the base of the brain is an operatively challenging tumor ideally suited for stereotactic radiosurgery, a volumetric modulated arc technique that allows for highly conformal, intensity-modulated dose distributions to be delivered with a single 360° rotation of the gantry of the linear accelerator. medical illustration of Renowned photographer Gerald Förster photographed models holding empty frames. Matching the silhouettes of the framed limbs, Cynthia Turner created illustrations simulating x-rayed bones exhibiting psoriatic arthritis. medical illustration of Renowned photographer Gerald Förster photographed models holding empty frames.

medical illustration of The sixteen pathogens indicated for the broad spectrum antibiotic INVANZ™ for a global launch campaign by Merck Pharmaceuticals: Escherichia coli, Clostridium clostridioforme, Eubacterium lentum, Peptostreptococcus species, Bacteroides fragilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Streptococcus agalactiae, Porphyromonas asaccharolytica, Prevotella bivia and Biophilia wadsworthia. medical illustration of The sixteen pathogens indicated for the broad spectrum antibiotic INVANZ™ for a global launch campaign by Merck Pharmaceuticals: Escherichia coli, Clostridium clostridioforme, Eubacterium lentum, Peptostreptococcus species, Bacteroides fragilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Streptococcus agalactiae, Porphyromonas asaccharolytica, Prevotella bivia and Biophilia wadsworthia. medical illustration of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease is often mistaken for occasional heartburn but is a serious digestive disorder. The lower esophageal sphincter opens more often that it should, and stomach acid travels up into the esophagus where it can erode the esophageal lining. A layer of mucus protects the duodenum from harsh stomach acid, but H. pylori bacteria damage the protective lining, leading to an ulcer. Endoscopy allows a view inside the esophagus, stomach and duodenum to look for acid damage. medical illustration of The brain is the seat of intelligence, interpreter of the senses, initiator of body movement, and controller of behavior and the source of all the qualities that define our humanity. 6-foot square exhibition graphic. medical illustration of Peripheral tumor locations are treated with three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy using computer technology to more precisely target the tumor with radiation beams by using width, height, and depth measurements.
