In addition, residents often develop problems such as pressure sores, incontinence, muscle wastage and worsened mental conditions due to the use of such beds....   [tags: Resident Care]

Developmental Origins of Resident Central Nervous System Microglia Part 1 - Microglia are hematopoietic-derived innate immune cells that constantly survey the environment and regulate the development of the central nervous system (CNS). These cells have dynamic cellular processes that make contact with synapses and engulf cellular debris from dying neurons. The origin of microglia has been a controversial topic for decades. Recently, it was demonstrated that microglia originate in the yolk sac (YS) from YS-derived macrophages during primitive hematopoiesis and subsequently populate the embryonic brain (Ginhoux et al., 2010)....   [tags: hematopoietic-derived innate immune cells]

Developmental Origins of Resident Central Nervous System Microgila Part 2 - Intraembryonic hematopoiesis: first emergence of “true” hematopoietic stem cells Intra-embryonic (definitive) hematopoiesis first begins in the para-aortic splanchnopleura (P-Sp) and then in the aorta-gonad-mesenephros (AGM) region shortly following the onset of blood circulation at E8.5. At E10, definitive hematopoietic stem cells (dHSCs) emerge from the ventral lining of the dorsal aorta (Yokomizo et al., 2010); however, the mechanism of dHSC emergence is not known. Four models have been proposed on the mechanism of dHSC emergence: 1) an endothelial precursor gives rise to hematogenic endothelial cells (Jaffredo et al., 1998), 2) a hemangioblast from urogenital ridges gives rise to endothe...   [tags: blood system, stem cells]
