medical illustration of Disease caused by decreased platelet production can be augmented by platelet-stimulating agents that interact with the transmembrane domains of the thrombopoietin receptors, thereby complementing native thrombopoietin that binds with the extracellular domains.
medical illustration of Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (aHUS) manifests by chronic uncontrolled complement activation leading to the continuous activation of platelets and endothelial cells. The resulting thrombi cause thrombotic microangiopathy which may result in sudden fatal thrombotic complications or in the progressive failure of vital organs, including the kidney, heart, and brain. For Alexion Pharmaceuticals.
medical illustration of The neurovascular unit for Remedy Pharmaceuticals investor relations. Remedy’s drug candidate reduces brain swelling and hemorrhage following traumatic injury. The brain microvessels, astrocytes, pericytes, neurons, microglia and the extracellular matrix form functional neurovascular units to maintain a precisely regulated microenvironment for reliable neuronal signaling.
medical illustration of The anatomical site of aqueous humour production in healthy ciliary processes epithelium and the aqueous humor drainage through healthy trabecular meshwork in the anterior chamber angle.
medical illustration of Bone marrow is the site of hematopoiesis – the formation of hematopoietic stem cells which give rise to the three classes of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets.
medical illustration of The diabetic glomerulus exhibits glomerular hypertrophy and mesangial matrix expansion due to the increase of intra- and extracellular proteins from advanced glycation end-products, increased basement membrane thickness, and podocyte apoptosis.
medical illustration of COX-2 selective NSAIDs were developed to maintain analgesia efficacy while minimizing the side effects associated with COX-1 inhibition. The cyclooxygenase enzyme is anchored to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Above it, released prostaglandin hormones soar into the cell. The COX-2 selective NSAID is blocked from the channel of access for COX-1, but gains entry at COX-2 site, and thereby inhibits the active site for pain prostaglandin creation.

medical illustration of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease is often mistaken for occasional heartburn but is a serious digestive disorder. The lower esophageal sphincter opens more often that it should, and stomach acid travels up into the esophagus where it can erode the esophageal lining. A layer of mucus protects the duodenum from harsh stomach acid, but H. pylori bacteria damage the protective lining, leading to an ulcer. Endoscopy allows a view inside the esophagus, stomach and duodenum to look for acid damage.
medical illustration of The brain is the seat of intelligence, interpreter of the senses, initiator of body movement, and controller of behavior and the source of all the qualities that define our humanity. For Alkermes Biopharmaceuticals.
medical illustration of Peripheral tumor locations are treated with three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy using computer technology to more precisely target the tumor with radiation beams by using width, height, and depth measurements.
