A magnetically contolled camera pill Images in the physical body?

In collaboration with engineers from the maker Given Imaging, the Israelite Medical center in Hamburg and the Royal Imperial University in London, experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering in Sankt Ingbert are suffering from the first-ever control system for the camera pill. In future, doctors shall be able to stop the video camera in the esophagus, move it and down and turn it up, and therefore adjust the position of the camcorder as required, says IBMT team leader Dr. Frank Volke. This enables them to make a precise examination of the junction between the esophagus and the abdomen, for if the cardiac sphincter is not functioning properly, gastric acid arises the esophagus and causes heartburn.Sykiotis, M.D., Ph.D., Richard Quinton, M.D., Apisadaporn Thambundit, B.A., Magdalena Avbelj, M.D., Ph.D., Sadhana Dhruvakumar, M.Sc., Lacey Plummer, B.A., Virginia A.

Hall, M.D., and Nelly Pitteloud, M.D.: A Genetic Basis for Functional Hypothalamic Amenorrhea Reproduction is an costly procedure for women energetically, and body’s defence mechanism have evolved that temporarily inhibit reproduction under unfortunate circumstances.5 This frequent reason behind female infertility is diagnosed as functional hypothalamic amenorrhea, defined as the lack of menses, normal or low gonadotropin levels, and hypoestrogenemia without organic abnormality.7 The exquisite sensitivity of the GnRH pulse generator to energy deficits is evidenced by the fact that serum degrees of leptin, a sign of fat reserves, tend to be low in sufferers with hypothalamic amenorrhea and that leptin substitute can restore GnRH pulsatility.8-10 After the underlying stressors have been eliminated, regular reproductive function resumes generally.12,13 However, it really is unidentified whether this susceptibility reflects a genetic predisposition to hypothalamic amenorrhea.
