Hope over high blood
A four-monthly jab may one
day replace the need to regularly take pills to
control blood pressure, scientists say.
A team from
the Swiss biotechnology firm Cytos found the vaccine
against a hormone in the blood significantly cut
blood pressure, the Lancet reported.
The jab was tested on 72 patients with high blood
pressure and it was found to work without serious
The researchers and independent experts said the
findings were promising but large-scale trials were
High blood pressure, which affects a quarter of all
adults, doubles the risk of dying from heart disease
or stroke and is blamed for 60,000 deaths a year in
Those who are being treated for it often have to
take a daily course of pills to keep it under
But many people do not keep to their treatment
regimes as people with high blood pressure do not
The researchers believe the vaccine, which works
against the hormone angiotensin, which causes blood
vessels to constrict and increase blood pressure,
may offer a simple alternative.
They tested two different doses of the vaccine - 300
microgrammes and 100 microgrammes - as well as a
dummy vaccine during the 14-week trial.
The jabs were given at the start, and after four
weeks and 12 weeks - enough to give a patient
Neither dose significantly lowered blood pressure at
But during the day the larger dose significantly
lowered blood pressure, especially during the late
morning peak when blood pressure is known to
And, importantly, the vaccine did not have any
serious side-effects with the worst being mild
Lead researcher Dr Martin Bachmann said the vaccine
could offer a much more simple way of controlling
blood pressure and could be administered during
regular visits to the doctor.
"Such a regimen is likely to promote adherence to
treatment, but will need to be supported by clinical
Professor Jeremy Pearson, of the British Heart
Foundation, agreed more research was needed, but
described the results as promising.
"Immunisation may be of particular benefit to people
who find it difficult to stick to high blood
pressure medication, but there is still a long way
to go before this approach replaces the
highly-effective current treatments.
"Looking after your heart through regular exercise,
cutting down on salt, and only drinking in
moderation remain the best ways in which we can
prevent high blood pressure."
Professor Graham MacGregor, chairman of the Blood
Pressure Association, added: "This study
demonstrates an interesting new way to lower blood
pressure." Other firms are also known to be testing
blood pressure vaccines.

A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to
light the way for others.
Dear friends, this time I want to talk to you about the
importance of teachers in our life and the need to give them
respect. During my teaching experience, I have observed the
sad decline in the respect given to teachers. Going down the
memory lane, I remember how much emphasis our elders laid on
the need to show respect and gratitude to teachers. In
modern era, neither the students nor their parents seem to
practice this valuable tradition of respecting teachers.
While parents are responsible for bringing us into the
world, it is our teachers who teach us the art of living.
And hence just as we adore our parents and have regard for
them, same is deserved by teachers.
It is not easy to impart your knowledge to others and let
them excel you. But this is exactly what teachers do. They
deliver their knowledge; help their students to learn skills
so that they can do well in future. The whole effort of
teachers is to make their students become more and more
knowledgeable and they feel genuine happiness at their
student’s success just as parents do.
Teaching is a very challenging job. Teacher has to deal with
a class of varied students which include some good, some
average and some naughty, trouble making students. He has to
use his professional skills to maintain class discipline and
inspire his pupils to learn. Isn’t it a tough task?
In most professions, you see the result of hard work quite
soon, but teachers have to wait for along time before the
fruits of their efforts show up. The results of their
efforts show up in the form of their students who complete
their studies and become noble professionals. But often,
when one reaches the zenith of success, he or she forgets to
appreciate the efforts of those who played influential role
in the past. Very and very few people return to thank their
teacher who taught them years back.
Teachers are of great value to the state as well, for they
have the most power to influence the rising generation-
those who will matter to the world tomorrow. The influence
of teacher never stops because a teacher affects eternity.
Great people always express gratitude to their teachers.
Alexander, the Great said, “I am indebted to my father for
living, but to my teacher for living well”. This reminds me
of Aristotle’s famous saying Those who educate children
well are more to be honored than parents, for these only
gave life, those the art of living well.
Dear friends, we shall all love and respect our
teachers. One way of showing respect is by obeying them. It
is often observed that some children backbite and call their
teachers by bad names at their back. It is very bad to do
so. He who doesn’t learn to respect teachers will never
learn. We shall stand in respect of teachers. We shall give
them way, open door for them, help carry their load. One of
the best ways to express our regards for them is by doing
good work and following their instructions. And when we grow
up and become young adults, we shall not forget to return to
our teachers and thank them for making us a noble human
Till next time, Allah Hafiz
