Should we create drugs (medication) for a specific race? Eg. BilDil?
Asked by Mahalia Frisbie 1 year ago.

There's not a lot of good data about BiDil (most of the studies that suggest that the combination of a nitrate and hydralazine works for blacks with CHF used self-identification as the basis for their categorization of race, which is just about the most imprecise method of determination possible). But if it were to come out that there was actually enough genetic difference between "races" (or even that the concept of race is genetically meaningful, which is pretty doubtful) then yes, I think that it would be a useful tool for determining the therapies most likely to be effective for a given patient. Answered by Cher Rundquist 1 year ago.

I'm not sure I grasp your question entirely but in any case no. Human races are a ficticious construct, the genetical differences are not big enough to define true races. At most there's a few characters that are more common in one "race" or other, but it can happen for a white and a black to share more genes than two blacks or two whites.

Genetics and race ?

Asked by Vernell Howland 1 year ago.

is it currently possible that a sample of genetic material from a person could be used to show what the race of the person was with out seeing the person. further more if this is possible could drugs be made or chemicals whatever that would only affect one race. such as a biological aqent that is realesed into the air and then in a crowd of all different people only people of one tribe race would be affected. this could be a cure or it could sadly be a weapon . how far out is this idea ? is this idea something that could now or at one point happen. . do you think anyone else ie some goverment is working on such an idea. please feel free to tell me what you know and think about all of this . thank you . Answered by Marla Szymczyk 1 year ago.

Given a large enough database of genetic markers, it seems likely that you could guess the race of an individual from their genetic code. As to a drug ONLY effecting one race, that seems much too advanced for what modern medicine is able to do. There ARE drugs that work better in one race, like BiDil works better in black populations that white populations. Given that we all share nearly all the same genetic material, it seems that to create a drug that only effects a single race, you'd need to find some way in which a given race has a different structure that all other races (and even though diseases like sickle-cell anemia are more common among black populations, the 'defective' blood cell is hardly present in all black people (remember this blood cell is only defective now that some blacks are not living in tropical areas where malaria is rampant)). Answered by Emeline Villarreal 1 year ago.

Yes it is possible to determine race via DNA. If I am not mistaken, there are already drugs that affect different races better than others, but I don't know about any drugs affecting ONLY a particular race. There are diseases that are race specific, or at least predominately race specific (sickle-cell anemia in Africans/African-Americans). Answered by Josef Hashbarger 1 year ago.

Yes Genetic material can be used to trace race Yes certain medicences already work for certain races and not others or not as well for others Yes already this has been used in warfare Answered by Lea Sena 1 year ago.

hi from the human genome project its found out that human has 30-35,000 genes from which we have to find out the function of each and every gene if its done then the human population can be an healthy one without any congenital deformities,less mortality rate and a greater life expectancy. well we can also find out our ancestors,the ethnic groups from which we are here today.who knows man we may even find out who is the decendant of genghis khan or hitler one day. hope it happens in the near future. Answered by Tasia Whiby 1 year ago.

not DNA -- but mitochondrial DNA can tell who your mother and mother's mother is... this can help to pin-point where your ancestors came from. shocking to some people that we are not all that different one race to another when you look deep into the cells. Answered by Carley Schrager 1 year ago.


How do you increase NITRIC OXIDE Levels?
Asked by Ashlee Dede 1 year ago.

During the last 20 years cardiologists have shown that the hormone estrogen, which rises in women beginning at puberty, increases the production of NO. There are also factors that can destroy NO, such as the cell-free hemoglobin released when red blood cells rupture. A lower level of estrogen could lead to more severe disease, more cell rupture and more cell-free hemoglobin to destroy the NO. A number of therapies have been shown to increase the amount of NO and its survival in the body. Principal among them is the cholesterol-lowering class of drugs called the statins, BiDil is another. Made by NitroMed, BiDil is a combination of two older drugs, isosorbide dinitrate and hydralazine, that boost the level of nitric oxide in the blood. In patients suffering from heart failure the combination treatment was associated with a 43 percent decrease in the rate of death, a 33 percent reduction in first hospitalizations for heart failures, and a significant improvement in the quality of life, compared with standard therapy alone Answered by Keva Ruzzo 1 year ago.

Nitric oxide is a natural product of combustion (hot temperatures.) Nitrogen is 73% of the atmosphere, and when it gets sucked into an internal compustion engine, it reacts with oxygen as a resuld of the extreme heat of combustion, and Nicric Oxide is formed. It is also formed in Power plants that burn fuels, and (not very much) in lightning. Put nitrogen and oxyten together under heat and/or pressure, and nitric oxide is formed... It is interestingt that car entines that burn alcohol do not form much nitrogen oxide becaused they burn at a lesser temperature than gassoline or diesel engins... Ron. Answered by Janet Bryant 1 year ago.

Please see the web pages for more details on Nitric oxide and Endothelium derived relaxing factor. Nitric oxide is a vasodilator which may reduce arterial hypertension. Kidneys produce adequate amounts of vasodilators if there are no diseases such as renal parenchymal disease or bilateral nephrectomy Answered by Pearl Mark 1 year ago.
