The Oxygen Model of Every Chronic Disease

Majid Ali, M.D. How can there be a single model of all diseases? I anticipate the question. Aren’t medical models proposed to reduce complexities of scientific knowledge of human biology to workable simplicities in clinical medicine? I expect that question as well. If there is a single model for all chronic disease, doesn’t that mean that there would a single

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.

Oxygen Model of Neuropathy

Majid Ali, M.D. My Oxygen Model of Neuropathy is an extension of my Oxygen Model of Health and Disease. It is a unifying model that explains all aspects of neuropathy —causes, clinical course, consequences, and control—on the basis of disturbed oxygen function. The most important among these compromised and/or blocked functions are: (1) oxygen signaling; (2) oxygen’s ATP energy generation;

Oxygen – Why An Orphan?

Majid Ali, M.D. Nature chose oxygen to drive all aspects of human evolution. To facilitate this evolution, it also made the element essential for animals and plants. How profoundly ironic is this that we humans are doing every possible dumb thing to thwart nature’s “oxygen card” and make life on our planet unwell and sick.? In human spheres, oxygen has

Oxygen Model of Environmental Illness – Majid Ali, M.D.

Hurt Human Habitat and Energy Deficit —Healing Through the Restoration of Krebs Cycle Chemistry Majid Ali, M.D. Human energy deficit states are the consequences of a “hurt” human habitat. The central mechanism of energy deficit is disrupted oxygen homeostasis. The energy state of an amoeba cannot be dissociated from the energy state of its habitat. A mouse’s energetics are far

The Oxygen Model of Health and Aging Majid Ali, M.D.

The Oxygen Model OF Health and Aging Majid Ali, M.D.   My grandfather forgot to die on time. We do not know how long he lived — 101 years, 102 years, or more. My grandmother was also a centenarian. With that genetic pool, I sometimes wonder about my own life span. Then I realize that my grandparents lived free of pesticides, refrigerators,

Gulf War Syndrome—Navy News Considers My Prediction

Majid Ali, M.D. 1995: Navy News Gulf War Syndrome—Who’s Addressing the Issue? Long before the first veterans returned from the Persian Gulf Dr. Majid Ali, associate professor of pathology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University in New York, predicted five outcomes: (1) That a large number of service men and women in the Persian Gulf region

Crucial Enzymes in the Oxygen Order of Human Health – Oxyenzymes

  Oxyenzymes Majid Ali, M.D.  In this tutorial , I present fundamrentals of enzymes of central importance in the free radical pathology and immunology. Myeloperoxidase Deficiency It is of some interest to note that the essential role of eukocyte myeloperoxidase in preserving the function integrity of the phagocytes was first demonstrated in disseminated candidiasis in 1969 by Lehrer and Cline.
