Ogilvie's syndrome, also known as acute colonic pseudo-obstruction, refers to pathologic dilation of the colon without underlying mechanical obstruction, occurring primarily in patients with serious c...
The extensive and alarming use of opioids for pain management in patients with chronic pain receiving palliative care is associated with non-tolerable gastrointestinal (GI) adverse effects. Opioid-ind...
Neostigmine test (NT) is a pharmacological test, demonstrating a clinical improvement in patients affected by myasthenia gravis (MG). We aim to compare clinical evaluation and neurophysiological recor...
There is evidence of the effectiveness of rituximab in treatment of nephrotic syndrome in children. The present study aimed to assess safety and the therapeutic effectiveness of rituximab in steroid- ...
This is a single-center, randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the effects of placebo, codeine, methylnaltrexone and codeine with methylnaltrexone on gastrointesti...
The study team is seeking a novel treatment for snoring involving local application of a nerve stimulant medication, neostigmine. In this study, neostigmine will be injected into 5 sites o...
This is an open-label, multicenter extension of study 3200K1-4000-WW that will evaluate the safety of methylnaltrexone. This drug will be administered by SC injection and will be tested in...
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind , placebo-controlled trail to investigate the safety and efficacy of subcutaneous methylnaltrexone for treating opioid-induced constipation ...
Neuromuscular blockers (NMB) are currently used in anesthesia. Residual paralysis (RP) due to NMB is responsible for respiratory disorders after extubation. Neuromuscular blockade is monit...
A cholinesterase inhibitor used in the treatment of myasthenia gravis and to reverse the effects of muscle relaxants such as gallamine and tubocurarine. Neostigmine, unlike PHYSOSTIGMINE, does not cross the blood-brain barrier.
Functional obstruction of the COLON leading to MEGACOLON in the absence of obvious COLONIC DISEASES or mechanical obstruction. When this condition is acquired, acute, and coexisting with another medical condition (trauma, surgery, serious injuries or illness, or medication), it is called Ogilvie's syndrome.
Strains of the genus Enterococcus that are resistant to the antibiotic VANCOMYCIN. The enterococci become resistant by acquiring plasmids carrying genes for VANCOMYCIN RESISTANCE.
A primary headache disorder that is characterized by frequent short-lasting, unilateral, neuralgiform pain attacks in the ocular area, with CONJUNCTIVA fluid-filling and tearing. SUNCT syndrome is usually resistant to treatment.
Tuberculosis resistant to chemotherapy with two or more ANTITUBERCULAR AGENTS, including at least ISONIAZID and RIFAMPICIN. The problem of resistance is particularly troublesome in tuberculous OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS associated with HIV INFECTIONS. It requires the use of second line drugs which are more toxic than the first line regimens. TB with isolates that have developed further resistance to at least three of the six classes of second line drugs is defined as EXTENSIVELY DRUG-RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS.
