Nutrition is the science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of an organism. It includes food intake, absorption, assimilation, biosynthesis, catabolism, and excretion.The diet of an organism is what it eats, which is largely determined by the availability and palatability of foods. For humans, a healthy diet includes preparation of food and storage methods that preserve nutrients from oxidation, heat or leaching, and that reduce risk of foodborne illnesses.
In humans, an unhealthy diet can cause deficiency-related diseases such as blindness, anemia, scurvy, preterm birth, stillbirth and cretinism, or nutrient excess health-threatening conditions such as obesity and metabolic syndrome; and such common chronic systemic diseases as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Undernutrition can lead to wasting in acute cases, and the stunting of marasmus in chronic cases of malnutrition.

tacrolimus ointment (Protopic)

What is tacrolimus ointment, and how does it work (mechanism of action)?

Tacrolimus ointment is a topical drug (a
drug that is applied to the skin) that is used for the treatment of atopic
dermatitis (eczema). Atopic dermatitis is a chronic (long-lasting) disease of
skin in which the skin becomes inflamed, causing
itchiness, redness, swelling,
cracking, weeping, crusting, and scaling. The inflammation is caused by
activation of the immune system though the reason for the activation is unknown. Tacrolimus ointment suppresses the immune system and the inflammation by
inhibiting an enzyme (calcineurin) crucial for the multiplication of T-cells,
cells that are required for activation of the immune system. Tacrolimus ointment
was approved for the treatment of atopic dermatitis in December 2000.
