The aim of the Repository for Biological Sciences Information including its' new Inflammatory Disease and Lesions resources is to provide reliable information on various areas of scientific interest in a format that can be digested easily. The information is grouped according to interrelated sections and categories and presented in the simplest words and terms possible helping users understand the context of whatever topic information is searched on.
The Disease Research Section contains scientific information on any kind of disorder in the structure or function of a living organism. A disease is any kind of disorder in the structure or function of an organism, including humans, plants, and animals. Disease can be caused by external factors, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, proteins, prions, and infections. However, there are also diseases that are caused by dysfunctions within the organism’s body, such as autoimmune diseases. After inclusion of the two new categories, this section contains ten categories including Animal Disease, Disease Antibodies, Health and Disease, Heart Disease, Inflammatory Disease, Lesions, Liver Disease, Disease Resistance, Syndrome, and Viral Disease. Users can receive alerts for newly published content in this section by subscribing to the Disease Research Section RSS feed.
The newly published category Inflammatory Disease contains scientific information on the localized physical condition in which a specific part of the body becomes swollen, reddened, hot, and often painful as reaction to injury or infection. Inflammation is one of the features of complex biological responses of the vascular tissues to harmful stimuli, including damaged cells, irritants, injury, or pathogens. Infection is often caused by a harmful microorganism such as a bacteria or a virus, while inflammation is a stereotyped response of the body—an innate mechanism of the immune system. When inflammation is chronic, the condition can also lead to a wide variety of diseases, such as periodontitis, atherosclerosis, hay fever, rheumatoid arthritis, and even cancers such as gallbladder carcinoma. The category currently contains over 2,400 articles including one on using a lifestyle perspective to understand toothbrushing behavior in Scottish schoolchildren, one on transmission of Trichinella spiralis in the rat population of an agricultural ecosystem, and on the treatment of abdominal distension and dyspepsia with enteric coated peppermint oil following routine gynecological intraperitoneal surgery. Website users can receive alerts for newly published content in this category by subscribing to the Inflammatory Disease RSS feed.
The new category Lesions contains scientific information on regions in a tissue or in an organ that have suffered damage because of disease or injury. Lesions include wounds, ulcers, abscesses, tumors, and other such physical damage to tissues and organs. The term can also be used to refer to any abnormality in the tissue of an individual organism that is caused by trauma or disease. The size of the lesion can be specified as either histologic or gross, depending whether they can be observed by the naked eye or if they require the use of a microscope for inspection. The category currently contains over 4,850 articles covering lesions in the bursa of fabricius of market age broilers at slaughter, ischemic brain lesions diagnosed at birth in preterm infants, and fine needle aspirates of follicular lesions of the thyroid gland the intermediate type smear. Website users can receive alerts for newly published content in this category by subscribing to the Lesions RSS feed.
The repository groups information in the natural sciences according to interrelated sections and categories that will help readers understand the context of whatever topic is searched information on. Each unit contains a definition composed in an understandable way and each item in these sections and categories contains up to twenty clickable tags.
