I had a culture and sensitivity test done and it came out negative with no organisms found. Should I just remove the IUCD?

Not yet. . .: Not enough info. Why did you have C&S done? What was cultured? What symptoms are you trying to diagnose? What will you use in place of IUCD (intrauterine contraceptive device)? Discuss all these questions w/your Family Doc or GYN. ...Read more

Single organism less than 10, 000 isolated. These organisms common on external and internal genitalia considered colonizers. No further testing. Neg?

Negative.: This is generally considered colonization or contamination (would need full report), unless there are very specific organisms are present. Treatment is not recommended, because the side effects of the antibiotics could outweigh the risk of treating colonization or contamination. Also, excessive antibiotic use could lead to antibiotic resistance in the future, should you get an infection. ...Read more

How can organisms similarities in anatomy and embryology provide evidence for evolution?

How can organisms similarities in anatomy and embryology provide evidence for evolution?

Ontogeny recapitul-: Ates phylogeny. That means that during embryonic development, the embryo goes through physical forms that mimic your ancestors, rather than just develop right into a human. An early human embryo looks very much like our amphibian and then dinosaur (well, chicken, which is really the same thing) ancestors, and then many early structures wither and die, being replaced by more advanced species. ...Read more

Why does our body not reject the insulin made from genetically modified organisms like bacteria?

Why does our body not reject the insulin made from genetically modified organisms like bacteria?

Similar structure: Hi the engineered insulins are VERY similar in structure to native human insulin. The human insulin gene is rearranged so that the engineered protein differs from regular human insulin by only 1 amino acid. The change is significant for how the insulin molecules behave at acid/neutral pH or how they fail to aggregate, but not enough to be recognized as different by the immune system. Fortuitous! ...Read more

If the clotrimzole does not kill the organisms, will the infection return or eventually flare up again?

If the clotrimzole does not kill the organisms, will the infection return or eventually flare up again?

More complicated: Yeast infections are caused by our body's own yeast. Yeast are a normal part of the vagina and you can't get rid of it completely. The level of yeast is kept in check by the presence of a good bacteria, called lactobacilus. Things that kill this good bacteria allow the yeast to overgrow and cause symptoms. You cannot take anything to get the levels of the lactobacilus back to normal. ...Read more
