comment Can an influenza virus carry other infectors with it?
+1 for picture and new proposal! Is this method of bacteriohpage the one of most likely methods how influenza could act as a carrier? Can you relate it to alec_djinn's answer?

comment Will the heart keep beating if it is separated from the body?
Can you please add text here instead of such a big picture which is difficult to read.

comment Will the heart keep beating if it is separated from the body?
@RoverEye One article is The sinoatrial node, a heterogeneous pacemaker structure by Boyett. However, it is not sufficient itself. Much things, I would rewrite completely and extend. Koivumäki et all In Silica ... article is about AF and some introduction for the cell-tissue-organ model in Computational Biology. Clustering, neuronal networks, analysis through different methods and their application - you must understand this from some sources which are outside of Biology. I will let you know when some of better reviews are published in this area.

For instance, how heart can restore its beating function after i/m KCl in a cardiac surgery where heartbeat must be stop?

comment Will the heart keep beating if it is separated from the body?
@RoverEye It is not only about ionic homeostasis. The central topic is electrical/mechanical function of the heart together i.e. how heart circulates its energy flow for a sufficient heartbeat. Ionic homeostasis is just a small part of this. Pacemakers are just a small part of electrical system. You do not describe anything about this combination system which the heart contains. There are some good preview articles, for instance, about internal physiology of SA node, describing limitations and targets in this research. Only a few about the integrative system but it still can be described.

Can you please describe this more closer a central cluster of neurons.

comment Will the heart keep beating if it is separated from the body?
-1 because too generic answer, too copy-pasted and little understanding. Recent research not previewed. To just say that there are that and that pacemaker in heart is not sufficient. More about why -part is needed. Beat itself is not the only process there. There is much more there if you think, for instance, the system in homeostasis. For instance, how are pacemakers kept functional?

comment How can succinylcholine cause myorelaxation?
@Raoul The reason is that I am not satisfied enough. It seems too be too much cardiac. I may be wrong. I need something more etc references, images or anything so that I can be certain about your answer. You have now only a reference to Wikipedia which is not enough. I want to understand this topic.

@JasandPruski Please, make your comments an answer, since they are good and make sense.

comment Why is Benzylpenicillin better in Bacterial Meningitis than Amoxicillin?
Excellent idea to explain this by structure! Do both work in the similar analogue in Syphilis? Similarly, I think better drugs for that.

comment Why is Benzylpenicillin better in Bacterial Meningitis than Amoxicillin?
@canadiane No, this is a class note. Yes, it may be related to the fact that amoxicillin can even induce meningitis, probably because the increased resistance of the drug (wider spectrum than penicillin G but more resistance also). Good link! Make it an answer with a small summary, please.

comment Why is Benzylpenicillin better in Bacterial Meningitis than Amoxicillin?
@Chris I narrowed it. Specificity of course, but this is a general question. If you have those drugs, give their indications. I see bacterial meningitis in benzylpenicillin as indication, but not in amoxicillin. However, googling shows that amoxicillin has induced some meningitis but I do not know if it has been used in bacterial-meningitis.

What do you think role between intercalation and topoisomerase inhibition?

comment Doxorubicin's intercalant and topoisomerase inhibition in leukemia?
I think you are right! It seems that it is not used without chemotherapy? At least this is right: Used in Combination Cancer Chemotherapy: Leukemia, lymphoma, solid tumors, soft tissue carcinomas. Please, make your comment an answer.

comment Why is Electrical Cardioversion contraindicated in AF and Digitalis Poisoning?
Excellent sentence The rate of ventricular arrhythmias is in direct correlation with the level of the energy used for the cardioversion (this is why there is "pre-cardioversion" with low-energy pulses). I would like to get more understanding about the nature and characteristics of this energy. What is the energy form? Ellipsoid pulses? Which other energy pulses are provided along the main energy signal? Any more studies about this?

Excellent article! Thank you for your answer! Please, add further articles and/or books if there are some which could be useful to understand this case better.

comment Do both Carbamazepinum and Lamotriginum increase glutamate threshold?
I added my summary about those drugs in the body: group, mechanism of action and Indications. Do you agree? I do not know if I can write so many indications if then the mechanism of action is enough general. I am very uncertain about the groups. CYP-450 inductor does not sound good in the first drug.

comment Do both Carbamazepinum and Lamotriginum increase glutamate threshold?
In lamotrigine, only in vitro studies about GABA here pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/… The exact mechanisms of both these systems are not known. How would summarize this?
