Early Observations In Free Radical Pathology – Early History

Majid Ali, M.D. An Article of Course on Molecular Biology of Oxygen   In 1983, Eli Metchnikoff, a Russian biologist, made his seminal discovery of the role of phagocytes in host defense. His work provided the scientific basis for our current ideas of cellular host defense. During the five decades which followed Metchnikoff’s work, the investigative focus remained on the

Molecular Biology of Oxygen and Tyranny of Medical Specialization

Majid Ali, M.D. Specialization in medicine is a physician constriction. Medical specialists are limited doctors. The antidote for the Specialization is a serious study of molecular biology of oxygen. Knowledge of oxygen signaling delineates the links between the colon and the lung and exposes the folly of being a gastroenterologist or a pulmonolgist. Learning oxygen’s ATP generation functions defines the

Molecular Biology of Oxygen Course

Majid Ali, M.D. I offer two courses on molecular biology of oxygen: 1. Molecular Biology of Oxygen Basics 2. Molecular Biology of Oxygen Advanced Each course comprises tutorials, each of which stands on its own and links with materials in others to complete the “oxygen kaleidoscope.” Individuals interested in the study of the core issues of dysfunctional oxygen metabolism, these two courses included tutorials devoted

Molecular Biology of Oxygen

Majid Ali, M.D. Many physician-friends ask about what I do. They know I competed my certification in surgery in London (FRCS) in the late 1960s and my certification in anatomic and clinical pathology in early 1970s. They are aware of my work as chief pathologist in a New Jersey hospital and at Columbia University in New York for some decades.

Pre-Alzheimer’s Is Insulin Toxicity

Majid Ali, M.D The rising incidence of Alzheimer’s disease, in my view, is rooted in insulin toxicity (hyperinsulinism). This is a strong claim and requires strong evidence. In this article, I introduce the term “pre-Alzheimer’s” to refer to state of insulin toxicity (hyperinsulinism) accompanied by brain dysfunction that set the stage for the development of Alzheimer’s disease. My primary purpose
