Urine is a liquid by-product of metabolism in humans and in many other animals. Urine flows from the kidneys through the ureters to the urinary bladder. Urination results in urine being excreted from the body through the urethra.

Method, system and device for treating disorders of the pelvic floor by means of electrical stimulation of the pudenal and associated nerves, and the optional delivery of drugs in association therewith

Described are implantable devices and methods for treating various disorders of the pelvic floor by means of electrical stimulation of the pudendal or other nerves, and optional means for delivering drugs in association therewith. A method of precisely positioning and implanting a medical electrical lead so as to provide optimal stimulation of the pudendal nerve or a portion thereof is also described. Placement of a stimulation lead next to or on the pudendal nerve may be performed using conventional prior art techniques through gross anatomical positioning, but usually does not result in truly optimal lead placement. One method of the present invention utilizes neurophysiological monitoring to assess the evoked responses of the pudendal nerve, and thereby provide a method for determining the optimal stimulation site. Additionally, one or more electrical stimulation signals are applied, and optionally one or more drugs are infused, injected or otherwise administered, to appropriate portions of a patient's pelvic floor and pudendal nerve or portions thereof in an amount and manner effective to treat a number of disorders, including, but not limited to, urinary and/or fecal voiding dysfunctions such as constipation, incontinence disorders such as urge frequency and urinary retention disorders, sexual dysfunctions such as orgasmic and erectile dysfunction, pelvic pain, prostatitis, prostatalgia and prostatodynia.

Outlet tube device for urinary drainage bag

An improved outlet tube device for a urinary drainage bag is disclosed wherein an outlet valve mechanism is contained with a rigid housing fixed securely to the drainage bag, rather than just being clamped to the outlet tubing, and thus cannot become separated from the bag. The outlet valve can be opened only by positive action on the part of the medical care personnel, thereby assuring that urine will be discharged only in a controlled manner. Further, because the valve mechanism does not require that a substantial length of tubing with a freely movable end be used in conjunction with the outlet port, there is no need to engage the free end of the tubing with a keeper. Thus the possibility of the tubing springing back to its straight configuration and flicking residual urine on the attending medical personnel is eliminated. In one embodiment the outlet tube device comprises a pinchcock-type valve which is fixedly mounted to the bag and which is normally operative to clamp off the outlet tube. In a second embodiment the outlet tube device comprises a syringetype fitting which is fixedly mounted to the bag. Depressing the syringe plunger closes the valve, and retracting the plunger opens the valve to permit fluid to be discharged through the outlet tube. In a third embodiment, a hose clamp is contained within a rigid housing and is selectively operative to clamp a hose to prevent fluid flow therethrough.

Five-leaf tea for reducing blood pressure, blood fat and blood sugar

The invention relates to a sally quinquefolia tea for reducing blood pressure, blood lipid and blood glucose, and is characterized in that the sally quinquefolia tea is mainly prepared from the following compositions in weight proportions : 250 to 300 portions of tea leaves, 5 to 10 portions of ginseng leaves, 3 to 6 portions of apocynum venetum (leaves), 3 to 6 portions of mulberry leaves, 3 to 6 portions of eucommia leaves, 3 to 6 portions of ginkgo leaves and 5 to 10 portions of ganoderma. The sally quinquefolia tea for reducing blood pressure, blood lipid and blood glucose is prepared scientifically with proper preparation, wherein in the blood pressure reduction aspect, the headache, dizziness and giddiness can be prevented; in the blood lipid reduction aspect, the palpitation, fatigue and bad sleep can be prevented; and in the blood glucose reduction aspect, the thirsty, emaciation and more night urine are prevented so as to prevent serious complicating diseases to the brain, the heart and the kidney. The sally quinquefolia tea has the functions of medicine, so that the health care function is obvious, colour, aroma and flavor of the original tea leaf are maintained with mellow scent, pure and sweet taste. Therefore, the sally quinquefolia tea is the best health-care functional drink for reducing blood pressure, blood lipid and blood glucose and is suitable for people who need to prevent and treat angiocardiopathy.

Soluble Form of Carbonic Anhydrase IX (s-CA IX), Assays to Detect s-CA IX, CA IX's Coexpression with HER-2/neu/c-erbB-2, and CA IX-Specific Monoclonal Antibodies to Non-Immunodominant Epitopes

Disclosed herein is the discovery of a soluble MN/CA IX (s-CA IX) in body fluids, such as, urine and serum. Said s-CA IX comprises the extracellular domain of CA IX or portions thereof. The predominant s-CA IX species is the extracellular domain comprising a proteoglycan-like (PG) domain and carbonic anhydrase (CA) domain, and having a molecular weight of about 50/54 kilodaltons (kd) upon Western blot. A smaller s-CA IX form of about 20 to about 30 kd comprising the CA domain or parts thereof, not linked to the PG domain, has also been found in body fluids. Diagnostic/prognostic methods for precancer and cancer that detect or detect and quantitate said s-CA IX in body fluids, are described. Also disclosed herein is the coexpression of CA IX and HER-2/neu/c-erbB-2 that provides parallel, alternative and potentially synergistic diagnostic/prognostic and therapeutic strategies for precancer and cancer. Further disclosed are new MN/CA IX-specific antibodies generated from MN/CA IX-deficient mice, preferably monoclonal antibodies and immunoreactive fragments and engineered variants thereof. Such new MN/CA IX-specific antibodies, fragments and variants are useful diagnostically/prognostically and therapeutically for cancer and precancer. Particularly preferred are the new monoclonal antibodies, fragments and variants that are specific for the non-immunodominant epitopes of MN/CA IX, which antibodies are, among other uses, useful to detect soluble MN/CA IX (s-CA IX) in body fluids, alone but preferably in combination with antibodies specific to the immunodominant epitopes of MN/CA IX, for example, in a sandwich assay.
