Epilepsy management in elderly patients is often complex because of several concomitant comorbidities that may limit the use of some antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). Levetiracetam (LEV) is a second-generat...
The incidence of vitamin D deficiency is high globally, and vitamin D supplementation draws particular attention. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of stratified vitamin D sup...
Safety and efficacy of mAbs blocking the IL-6 receptor have been established in RA. This is the first analysis examining safety and tolerability of sarilumab and tocilizumab administered as single or ...
In many parts of eastern Asia, rice is a dietary staple and therefore the ketogenic diet (KD) can be difficult to administer. The aim of this study was to assess the long-term effectiveness and tolera...
To evaluate long-term tolerability, safety and efficacy of adjunctive perampanel in a Phase II, multicentre, open-label, dose-ascending Study 231 (NCT00849212) and its extension (Study 233; NCT0090378...
To determine the maintenance dose of vitamin D supplementation required for children with epilepsy to maintain normal vitamin D level.
There are no solid treatment guidelines for idiopathic intractable epilepsy in children. The investigators propose that vitamin C being an antioxidant will improve seizure frequency and EE...
Background. For older adults, serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) higher than 75 nmol/L lowers fracture risk and attainment of this 25(OH)D target may require 125 mcg (5000 IU)/d of vitam...
The main aim of the research question to test the primary hypothesis of this study, namely, Does 12 weeks of an additional 5000 IU daily of cholecalciferol increase serum 25OHD levels in a...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of Epidiolex at various doses between 5 mg/kg/day and 50 mg/kg/day as an additional (add-on) drug for treating debilita...
A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
Freedom from exposure to danger and protection from the occurrence or risk of injury or loss. It suggests optimal precautions in the workplace, on the street, in the home, etc., and includes personal safety as well as the safety of property.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN D in the diet, insufficient production of vitamin D in the skin, inadequate absorption of vitamin D from the diet, or abnormal conversion of vitamin D to its bioactive metabolites. It is manifested clinically as RICKETS in children and OSTEOMALACIA in adults. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1406)
OXIDOREDUCTASES which mediate vitamin K metabolism by converting inactive vitamin K 2,3-epoxide to active vitamin K.
A family of phylloquinones that contains a ring of 2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone and an isoprenoid side chain. Members of this group of vitamin K 1 have only one double bond on the proximal isoprene unit. Rich sources of vitamin K 1 include green plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria. Vitamin K1 has antihemorrhagic and prothrombogenic activity.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
