Nationwide strike against the removal of EOPYY

May 18th 2014 at 9:56 PM

Panygeionomiki nationwide strike and rally at 11 am at the Health Ministry the day of enactment of the bill repealing EOPYY decided unanimously everyone involved. 'll follow the road to the House. Due to the strike, with security personnel will operate public hospitals, the Welfare units, health centers and ambulance. Among others ask: do not remove any Hospital Health Center no no polyclinic of EOPYY, no part,

no clinic no constitutional position and the direct recruitment of permanent healthcare staff with full and exclusive employment covering needs The sensitivity of someone in pain is controlled by a gene "thermostat", which is regulated under the influence of lifestyle and environment, according to new scientific research which participated Greeks. This, according to scientists, it means that how one can

withstand pain, can change the course of your life. confirmed is that those people are more sensitive to pain (the less resistant), is most likely some time to develop a chronic pain in their body. The new discovery may help future new types of drugs for chronic pain. Researchers, led by T. Spector Department of Genetic Epidemiology, King's College London, who made ​​the date of publication in the journal "

Nature Communications", in accordance with the BBC, followed 25 pairs of identical twins, which they submitted to the test of pain (how withstood a hot laser beam on the skin), while their DNA analyzed. analysis showed that resistance to pain may change over time as a consequence activation or inactivation of certain genes by environmental factors and lifestyle of someone (diet, smoking, alcohol, exposure to pollution, etc.)

This process, called "epigenetic" in biology means that external factors alter chemically how 'expression' of genes, in this case changing-for the better or for the worse-the "threshold" of pain a human. Identical twins share the 100% of their genes, while non-identical, only 50% average. Therefore,

any difference between identical twins (eg in terms of resistance to pain) should be attributed to environmental and epigenetic changes that it causes in gene function. research identified significant changes of this kind (chemical-epigenetiikes) nine tandem genes involved in the regulation of pain. Each of these gene modification was in a twin, but not in another (as had lived in a different way).

The most significant change was detected in the gene TRPA1, which is an excellent target for the development of a new type of analgesic drugs. participated in the survey genetic Professor Panos Deloukas the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the Medical School of the University "Queen Mary" in London.

Participants included: Lucia Tsaprouni (Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute), Chryssanthi Ainali Sophia Tsokas (King's College London - Department of Informatics), Emmanuel Dermitzakis, Antigone Dimas and Alexandra Nice (University of Geneva Medical School).
