Telomere Testing


Telomere Testing

Telomere Testing Now Available

On October 7, 2009 three American scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for discovering how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase.

Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome whose primary function is to prevent chromosomal “fraying” when a cell replicates. As cells age, its telomeres become shorter.

The new test, performed by Spectracell Laboratories in Houston, measures telomere length and compares that number with the population average for a given age. Having a telomere length longer than the population/age average is desirable.

H1N1 Flu Protection

Now that school is back in session, have you been wondering if there is anything you can do to protect you and your family against the H1N1 virus? Of course you should wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, and stay away from work or school if you have flu symptoms such as fever with cough or body aches. Regular flu vaccine should be available soon; H1N1 vaccine will be available later and initially only for certain high risk persons.

The usual medical prevention for the flu includes taking one of two drugs (Tamiflu or Relenza) after a known exposure.

This was the topic of the 16th International Symposium on Functional Medicine.  As the course materials stated, only 1/3 of individuals suffering depression in the US receive treatment and more than half of those patients being treated for depression achieve little or no recovery using conventional pharmaceuticals.  In addition, pharmaceutical side effects contribute to poor compliance, often furthering incomplete resolution of symptoms.  A myriad of new approaches were discussed.
