The topics of the present issue of our journal are addressing the problem of longevity and a healthy life. We open our topical discussion with a unique article presenting new data on the performance of the cardiovascular system in individuals aged over 90. We are sure it will contribute to a better understanding of some specific age-related features in a human organism. The other papers of outstanding scientists published herein should complete our analysis of challenges associated with longevity and prolongation of human life.
The paper presents some interesting data and findings on the study of the performance of the cardiovascular system in long-living individuals aged over 90. In this case, highland area individuals of this class are compared with those in flatland areas.
The limitations of capabilities of the existing mathematical weather prediction (including forecasting for weather-sensitive individuals) cannot be duly realized nowadays due to the fact that till now there is no proof of the existence and uniqueness of smooth solutions of the three-dimensional (3D) Navier-Stokes equation (in any finite period of time).
The use of deuterium depleted water (DDW) in a dosing regimen of 25-30 ml per day for five weeks in aging female rats (20-22 months) contributed to the overall correction of age-related disorders of the adaptive status, estrous cycle regulation and nonspecific resistance, as well as the appearance of visually distinct signs of rejuvenation of the animals.
The challenge of aging and supporting active long healthy life of a human is treated herein in the context of the chronobiological theory of bio-system stability. An increase in the energetic efficiency of the structural regulation in the feedback and adapting process of a bio-system results in a reduction of its homeostatic capacity and inhibition of its bio-rhythms.
The present paper deals with prenosological diagnostics as methodology of an estimation of functional states of an organism. Highlighted is its first practical application in space medicine, at long influence of stressful factors, including such factor unusual to terrestrial organisms as weightlessness.
The article presents the main provisions of the methodology for the analysis of heart rate variability (HRV), which is now actively and widely implemented in many fields of medicine and applied physiology.
Aneurysms of the atrial appendages are rare and extremely rare clinical entities. It can be confused with pericardial cyst, coronary artery aneurysm, left ventricular pseudo-aneurysm and partial or complete congenital absence of the pericardium.
The aim of the paper is to show the significance of the fractal approach to scientific discovery in the context of interrelations between the modern natural sciences and medicine in order to increase an efficiency of applications of most advanced medical devices.
Cytobiochemical analysis found a significant increase in nitroblue tetrazolium reduction during succinate oxidation in lymphocytes according to reading of animal blood smears.
This article considers possibilities of achieving the most effective therapeutic effect of intermittent hypoxia training (IHT) by initiating an activation and training reaction.
