Thyroid Function REST Gb
Categories:
PASSED
The thyroid gland is located in the base of your neck and is responsible for using iodine to make two main hormones: Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4). Many vital body functions are also regulated by the thyroid hormones such as: heart rate, breathing, central and peripheral nervous system, muscle strength, body mass, body temperature, cholesterol levels and menstrual cycle.

Apoptosis REST Gb
PASSED
Apoptosis which is referred to as programmed cell death, is a process which follows a controlled, regulated routine – it’s when a cell commits suicide. Apoptosis can be initiated either by the death-receptor (extrinsic) pathway or by the mitochondrial (intrinsic) pathway.

Interleukins REST Gb
PASSED
Interleukins (ILs) are a group of cytokines (secreted proteins and signal molecules) which are vital in performing many complex immunomodulatory functions such as cell proliferation, differentiation, activation, migration and maturation.

Cytokines REST Gb
Categories:
PASSED
Cytokines are proteins which are produced by cells and function to serve as molecular messengers between cells. Cytokines can be essentially classified has being lymphokines, interleukins and chemokines, this classification is principally based on their cell of secretion, presumed function and their target of action.

Matrix Metalloproteinases REST Gb
Categories:
PASSED
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), also known to be called matrixins, are multi-domain proteins which play a vital role in the removal and degradation of the extracellular matrix (ECM). MMPs activities are found to be regulated by tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs), these can be specific inhibitors of matrixins whilst also taking part in controlling the local activities of MMPs in tissues.

Cell Adhesion Molecules REST Gb
Categories:
PASSED
Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) are important molecules that have the ability to selectively recruit circulating leukocytes to sites of inflammation. CAMs can also mediate interactions between cells of the same type (homotypic adhesion) or between different cell types (heterotypic adhesion).

Fertility REST Gb
PASSED
Andrology is responsible for covering health related matters of the male reproductive systems, whereas gynaecology covers the female counterpart. In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a treatment which is used for infertility, it is usually the last resort when all the other methods of assisted reproductive technology have not be successful.

Diabetes REST Gb
PASSED
Diabetes mellitus is a lifelong common disorder where the body is unable to properly use carbohydrates, fats and proteins from foods. There are two main types of diabetes: type 1, where the pancreas doesn’t produce any insulin and type 2, where the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin or the body’s cells don’t react to insulin.

Nephrology REST Gb
Categories:
PASSED
Nephrology is a branch of medical science which is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases. Other roles of the kidneys include maintaining the fluid, electrolyte and acid-base regulation that can be affected by many disease conditions, drugs and toxins.

Bone Mineral Metabolism REST Gb
PASSED
Osteoclasts and osteoblasts cells are responsible for bone metabolism. Bone metabolism includes the activity of several hormones for example: osteocalcin, parathormone (PTH) and vitamin D. Diseases that affect bone and mineral metabolism can encompass a wide range of soft tissue and skeletal disorders.
