Brain ferritin iron as a risk factor for age at onset in neurodegenerative diseases.


Brain ferritin iron as a risk factor for age at onset in neurodegenerative diseases.

Brain iron increases with age and is abnormally elevated early in the disease process in several neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Parkinson's disease. MRI can be used to measure brain ferritin iron to target high-risk populations prior to symptom onset.

I would like to read more on this. I can't seem to view any more than these few sentences. My husband has had elevated ferritin levels for over 6 months and no one seems to be able to help. He suffers from terrible anxiety and bi-polar.

When I first saw the prelim suclpt months ago, I was really excited about this release. It looked highly detailed, especially the facial suclpt for Don Cheadle. I just picked it up at Borders (broke down and couldn't wait for my Amazon pre-order, which kept on getting delayed), and while it does look cool, there are some serious flaws that keep it from being exceptional. First off, the head suclpt is just as cool as the previews lead you to believe. It looks amazingly lifelike, and the mask fits snugly both on top of his head to reveal his face, and over his face, so there is no real chance of accidentally losing it in either position. Overall it does look pretty cool, but after having bought the 4 inch Hasbro figure, I did find a few things lacking. First of all, the eyes are done in red, to match the movie War Machine, but the chest and hand pieces are done in blue, like Iron Man. If you are going to go with one color, stick with it all around. Either make everything red or everything blue to match. It just looks a little strange. It also would have been nice to get additional sets of hands besides the default closed fists, just for a little variety, but no big thing. The biggest complaint I have, and this is after comparing it to the 4 War Machine, is the lack of articulation in this figure. I like the rage of motion the 4 offers in the arms, and even though the ball joint in the legs isn't my favorite, it offers more range of motion than the Diamond Select figure does. With this figure, you can't move the arms away from the sides (like if you wanted to form a T with the figure), and it's weird how much that hampers the range of movement of the figure, and therefore the ways you can pose it. It is also lacking all of the letterings and markings of the Hasbro figure (on the deltoids and the right oblique). All in all, a good looking figure, but it does say something when I actually think a figure half its size is done a lot better.
