"The primary cause of PSC remains unknown but genetics and autoimmune activation play a role. The relationship of PSC with other auto-immune diseases may also be important." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"This prospective pilot study demonstrated that ishvajiraja yoga has beneficial effects on key parameters of quality of life in a group of elderly people with knee osteoarthritis. More research into the long-term effects of this treatment is needed to determine whether the benefits will continue." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The'selfish gene' theory, which assumes a genetic basis for all human diseases, is not correct. Many disease processes have a strong genetic component. Aspects other than just genetics can be important in how diseases develop and can influence their outcome, and this work outlines how a number of other, additional biological processes contribute to disease." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The term 'disease' should be defined for this article as, first, a clinical term for a set of symptoms that a health-care professional might recognise as being associated with physiological or biochemical change. Second, a social term, for an illness that is associated or marked by distress, but is not necessarily life threatening. The concepts of disease and diagnosis in medicine involve more than physical manifestations on the body and can often be confusing. For example, a lump on a neck nodule (such as a papilloma) which could also be a benign condition. However, with symptoms such as chronic cough there is more likelihood of having a lung cancer than a papilloma, due to the associated symptoms including chronic coughing." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There are many different treatments for disease. The most used treatments are for respiratory problems including the use of supplemental oxygen, cough medications, and bronchodilators. There are many other treatments, including oral medications like anticonvulsant and corticosteroid tablets and ointments, antipsoriasis creams, and topical ointments on the skin. \nThe most common treatments for arthritis are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Other treatments for arthritis include joint injections, steroids, physical therapy, and acupuncture.\n\nIn 2013, nearly 2.7 million patients had arthritis (a total of 5.2 million people) in the U.S." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"While health professionals will always have feelings that a specific disease can be cured, this must be balanced against current evidence. While the evidence currently suggests that most diseases cannot be cured, it is clear that a few rare diseases may be. Those that are most treatable and/or can make a life-changer impact for the patient, such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy, are the potential cures of which we must take advantage, whilst accepting that some patients may well never get cured, and that other patients will never experience a cure as they have no mutations or other genetic defects. There are many patients who live a normal life with minimal symptoms and who find the limitations of their disease to be more manageable than the benefits of receiving a cure." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The data in this study reveal a high rate of DM relative to the general population. Although the absolute number of new cases of DM is low, the high frequency of this chronic disease makes this a serious problem for the entire population." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The signs of disease are the same as in a health population, but can present differently. Therefore, signs of disease tend to be very similar to those in health. They are mostly nonspecific signs such as fatigue, weight loss, or itchiness. Clinicians have traditionally focused on the nonspecific signs in clinical settings, but research evidence now indicates that careful attention to the signs of disease can improve health outcomes in patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Yoga practitioners report common side effects, which are probably similar in frequency to the side effects reported in the Western general population for whom iyengar yoga is intended to be a therapeutic lifestyle intervention. Many of the side effects reported in the Western general population have the same or equivalent underlying pathophysiological basis in people taking iyengar yoga." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Data from a recent study was based on a low-quality case control study design. The genetic determinants of Type 2 diabetes are yet to be elucidated, and no clear genetic determinants of Type 2 diabetes have been demonstrated." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"In the short term, people who practise Yoga have no worsening effect on the QOL, fatigue, depression or anxiety, while they show a slight improvement in QOL and fatigue. The duration is, however, too short to determine long-term changes. The long-term effects of iyengar yoga on QOL, fatigue, pain or depression require a future study." - Anonymous Online Contributor
