Complementarity and Contrariety In Genomics

Majid Ali, M.D. In 2001, the Human Genome Project Consortium estimated the number of genes in the human genome to be over 31,000, while Celera Genomics established that number to be 26,588, with 12,731 candidate genes.1-5 Implication of this work have been recently presented in special issues of Nature and Science.6-15 It is safe to predict that the knowledge of

Non-Coding DNA and Nature’s Preoccupation With Complementarity and Contrariety

Majid Ali, M.D. Nature’s Preoccupation With Complementarity and Contrariety Is the Title of the First Volume of my 14-volume Text Book The Principles and Practice of Integrative Medicine Below is text from an article published in the journal Nature (2009;461:199) which sheds light on the complementarity and contrariety in human cell systems and its impact on health and disease: “In

Oxygen Model of Every Disease

: Majid Ali, M.D. Oxygen Governs the Production and Functions of growth factors, Which Preserve the Health of Cell Populations of the Body. “It seems that growth factors may instruct blood-cell progenitors to develop into specific mature cell types, actively determining lineage choice. But is this reductionist view of cell fate overly simplistic?”  The above quote is taken from an

Oxygen Wars – Salamander Deaths by Bsal Fungus

Majid Ali, M.D. Salamander Deaths by Bsal Fungus The most lethal weapon employed by humans to kill wildlife, in my view, has been what I have called Water Wars for several years. Hunting weapons have been used to drive  some species toward extinction in a small number of cases, but such weapons have been inconsequential compared with oxygen deprivation inflected

Oxygen Wars – The Case of Sudden Death of Healthy Zebras and Rhinos – Whodunnit?

Majid Ali, M.D. A Revealing Whodunnit? of Conflicts Among Oxygen-Lovers and Oxygen-Haters Today is August 4, 2015. At about 10.30 pm, I started watching a nature show about inexplicable sudden deaths of black rhino, zebras, and deer in a wildlife reserve in South Africa. From scene to scene were pictures of well-preserved animal carcasses. What puzzled the park rangers and

Oxygen, Oxygen, and Oxygen

Majid Ali, M.D. Course on Molecular Biology of Oxygen All chronic diseases are rooted in impaired oxygen homeostasis in the body. It is really that simple. I refer doctors and biologists to the 10th, 11th, and 12th volumes of my textbook, The Principles and Practice of Medicine for a full explanation of my statement.    Suggested Courses * Dr. Ali’s

Dr. Ali’s Integrated Alzheimer’s Disease Protocol

Majid Ali, M.D. In the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) , most individuals respond to a therapeutic trial of nutrients that are specially valuable for brain function. I designate this trial “Dr. Ali’s AD Nutrient Challenge Test” and conduct it for a period of six weeks. This test offers a robust nutritional and detox for improving brain function, and

Two New Alzheimer’s Amyloid Drugs: A Prediction

Majid Ali, M.D. No Benefits for Patients, Enormous Riches for Drug Makers On July 23, 2015, The New York Times printed a story about two amyloid drugs for treating Alzheimer’s disease: solanezumab and solanezumab. Here is the basis of my prediction. Amyloid protein deposits in the brain result from brain toxicities and pathologic immune responses to them. The main lesson
