What snake bite causes localized tissue destruction around bite site?
Many poisonous snakes can do this. Some being rattlesnakes, copperheads, and water moccasins.
Those snakes with venom that is primarily cytotoxins (vipers, etc) can cause severe tissue damage. Those with neurotoxins (cobras, corals, etc.)are less likely so do so.
It is not known what exactly causes rheumatoid arthritis We do know that the destruction of joints and other tissue that takes place in this disease is the result of the immune system mistakenly attacking cartilage and other connective tissue resulting in joint damage and many other problems. To add to the confusion there are nearly 150 different types of arthritis.
reduced elasticity in the lung tissue means that less air can fill the lungs when somone breathes in making it harder to breathe. asbestosis is a diease where the asbestos fibres cause the destruction of phagocytes and the surrounding lung tissue becomes scarred and fibrous, the fibrous tissue reduces elasticity of the lungs and causes the alveolar walls to thicken.
inflammation is caused by the immune system, When the imune system is dealing with an infection or is rejecting some foreign body, inflammation spears. In the case of some diseases like rheumatoid arthritis the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue leading to inflammation tissue and joint destruction.
What is the medical term meaning destruction or elimination of abnormal tissue cells such as warts or tumors through the application of extreme cold by using liquid nitrogen?
Homogenization causes a supposedly “noxious” enzyme called xanthine oxidase to be encapsulated in a liposome that can be absorbed intact. XO is released by enzymatic action and ends up in heart and arterial tissue where it causes the destruction of a specialized protective membrane lipid called plasmalogen, causing lesions in the arteries and resulting in the development of plaque.
