In this next edition of “Advances in Medicine and Biology,” chapters include research on the link between inflammatory disorders and cardiovascular disease, with recent data indicating that the suppression of inflammation may reduce the risk of CV morbidity and mortality; recommended treatment options for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD); the regulation of testicular glucose metabolism in pre-diabetes, an intermediate state and a reversible condition, as well as its potential impact on male reproductive health; the use of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) as a method of measuring respiratory muscle oxygenation changes; the incidence, prognosis and management of common retinal injuries; factors that affect elimination disorders and its outcomes; the potential complications that radiofrequency ablation (RFA) can have on thermal skin injuries (skin burns); the use of grasshopper in the process of wound healing, specifically the use of grasshopper’s abdominal secretion in wound healing; and finally, the use of fish collagen as a substitute for mammalian collagen, in food products which also has various health implications.
