Badger fat for pneumonia

In the XX century, Academician ND Zelinsky proved the unique ability of badger fat to stop the reproduction of bacteria in the lungs. The research was continued by the biophysicist KS Trincher, who scientifically substantiated the treatment of pneumonia with badger fat. The discoveries of scientists did not find further development. In official medicine, drugs based on this...

Interstitial pneumonia

Interstitial pneumonia is an inflammation of the lung tissue that mainly affects the alveolar walls, endothelium, capillaries and fibrous tissues of the lung parenchyma. This term denotes a whole group of inflammatory processes of the interstitial tissue of the lungs of unknown origin. It is diagnosed in patients of different ages and sex: both an adult and...

Pulmonary infarction

Pulmonary infarction is a disease in which an area of ​​the pulmonary parenchyma changes pathologically due to an acute sudden disturbance of blood circulation (thrombosis or embolism of an arterial vessel that feeds this segment). Due to the violation of blood flow in the lung, a site of necrosis is formed, and later the adjacent pleura...

Infectious pneumonia

Infectious pneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs caused by the pathogenic activity of bacteria, viruses, fungi in the lung cavity. Infectious pneumonia often becomes a complication of concomitant diseases of the respiratory tract, inflammation of the respiratory system. Depending on the type of pathogen, the symptomatic picture of infectious pneumonia also appears. Any type of pneumonia...

Bilateral pneumonia in children
