Outcomes after toxic alcohol poisoning: a systematic review protocol.

Toxic alcohols have been implicated in accidental ingestions and intentional exposures. Recognition of toxic alcohol poisoning is challenging. The main treatment modalities include antidotes with alco...

Ethylene glycol: Evidence of glucuronidation in vivo shown by analysis of clinical toxicology samples.

In the search for improved laboratory methods for diagnosis of ethylene glycol poisoning, the in vivo formation of a glucuronide metabolite of ethylene glycol was hypothesised. Chemically pure standar...

Solar Cells Sensitized with Porphyrin Dyes Containing Oligo(Ethylene Glycol) Units: a High Efficiency Beyond 12.

A series of novel porphyrin dyes (XW42-XW44) containing oligo(ethylene glycol) units have been designed and synthesized. For XW42, two triethylene glycol (TEG) units were introduced into the phenothia...

Biodiesel production from microalgae Nannochloropsis oculata using heterogeneous Poly Ethylene Glycol (PEG) encapsulated ZnOMn nanocatalyst.

In this present work nanocomposite composed of Mn-ZnO capped with Poly Ethylene Glycol (PEG) was utilized as heterogeneous catalyst for the transesterification of oil extracted from Nannochloropsis oc...

Highly efficient ethylene glycol electrocatalytic oxidation based on bimetallic PtNi on 2D molybdenum disulfide/reduced graphene oxide nanosheets.

In this paper, a two-dimensional (2D) hybrid material of molybdenum disulfide (MoS)/reduced graphene oxide (RGO) is facilely synthesized and used as an ideal support for the deposition of Pt nanoparti...

Hyponatremia Due to Poly Ethylene Glycol (PEG)

Colonoscopy is a useful tool used in modern medicine and it is increasingly being employed for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. (Polyethelene glycol)PEG is very often used for bow...

Outcome Following Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in Children

Carbon monoxide poisoning is common. Many adults with CO poisoning have long-term, even permanent brain injury following poisoning. However, very little is known about the long-term outcom...

Randomized Feasibility Trial of Mind My Mind

In this feasibility RCT of the modular and flexible cognitive and behavioural therapy (Mind My Mind, MMM) compared with treatment as usual, the overall research aim was to explore the tria...

Supportive Measures in Treatment of Aluminum Phosphide Poisoning

Aluminum phosphide poisoning (ALP) is a global public health problem, and self-poisoning accounts for one-third of the world's suicide rate. In fact, in some parts of developing countries,...

Phase 1 Pilot Study of 4-MP to Treat Stargardt Macular Dystrophy

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether taking 4-methylpyrazole (4-MP, fomepizole, Antizol™) inhibits dark adaptation of the eye. In other words, we are testing if 4-MP slow...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A colorless, odorless, viscous dihydroxy alcohol. It has a sweet taste, but is poisonous if ingested. Ethylene glycol is the most important glycol commercially available and is manufactured on a large scale in the United States. It is used as an antifreeze and coolant, in hydraulic fluids, and in the manufacture of low-freezing dynamites and resins.

Polyester polymers formed from terephthalic acid or its esters and ethylene glycol. They can be formed into tapes, films or pulled into fibers that are pressed into meshes or woven into fabrics.

Ophthalmic solutions that include LUBRICANTS and WETTING AGENTS such as POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL; HYPROMELLOSE; GLYCEROL; PROPYLENE GLYCOL. They are used to treat conditions caused by deficient tear production such as DRY EYE SYNDROME.

An ethylene compound with two hydroxy groups (-OH) located on adjacent carbons. They are viscous and colorless liquids. Some are used as anesthetics or hypnotics. However, the class is best known for their use as a coolant or antifreeze.

Poisoning caused by ingestion of SEAFOOD containing microgram levels of CIGUATOXINS. The poisoning is characterized by gastrointestinal, neurological and cardiovascular disturbances.
