Rhabdomyolysis is not a well-understood adverse effect of antipsychotic use. Proposed mechanisms suggest involvement of serotoninergic and/or dopaminergic blockade. The purpose of this study was to describe the relationship between antipsychotic use and rhabdomyolysis. Patients admitted with rhabdomyolysis and taking an antipsychotic from January 2009 to October 2011 were included. Background demo...

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a highly prevalent virus, transmitted via saliva, which often causes asymptomatic infection in children but frequently results in infectious mononucleosis in adolescents. Heterophile antibody tests, including the Monospot test, are red cell or latex agglutination assays, which detect antired cell antibodies produced as part of a polyclonal antibody response occurring du...

Backgroud. Anemia is one of the laboratory and clinical findings of chronic kidney diseases (CKD). The presence of anemia in patients with CKD has a wide range of clinically important consequences. Some of the symptoms that were previously attributed to reduced renal function are, in fact, a consequence of anemia. Anemia contributes to increased cardiac output, the development of left ventricular ...

Intraoperative bleeding causing poor visibility of surgical field is of major concern during functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) and impaired visibility may result in many complications. The study aimed to compare surgical conditions for FESS during controlled hypotension provided by esmolol or nitroglycerine (NTG) under general anaesthesia. 52 adult patients of both sexes requiring FESS un...

It is a clinical dilemma whether patients having no symptoms of sinusitis but sinus haziness in X-ray should be considered as sinusitis or not and patients clinically having sinusitis and do not have radiological evidence should be considered as case of sinusitis or not. This study is an attempt to discuss this issue in details. To study diagnostic efficacy of conventional X-ray para nasal sinus w...

The regulation mechanism for the B cells in the female reproductive tract (FRT) is unclear now. The aim of this study was to analysis the effect of progesterone and mouse endometrium stromal cells (ESCs) on B cells and explore it roles in modulating B cells-mediated immune responses. We primary isolated mouse ESCs from endometrium of BALB/c mice and B cells from spleen cells of BALB/c mice, and th...

A rapid, simple, sensitive and selective LC-MS/MS method was developed and validated for simultaneous quantification of montelukast (MT) and fexofenadine (FF) in human plasma (200 μL) using montelukast-d6 (MT-d6 ) and fexofenadine-d10 (FF-d10 ), respectively as an internal standard (IS) as per the US Food and Drug Administration guidelines. The chromatographic resolution was achieved on a Chromol...

Skeletal structures act as lever arms during walking. Muscle activity and the ground reaction against gravity exert forces on the skeleton, which generate torque (moments) around joints. These lead to the sequence of movements which form normal human gait. Skeletal deformities in cerebral palsy (CP) affect the function of bones as lever arms and compromise gait. Lever arm dysfunction should be car...

Blood transfusions are required by most extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants, but sometimes an adequate peripheral venous access cannot be achieved. Under these circumstances, we used 27 Gauge (G) peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) lines that are routinely inserted on the second day of life. Due to their narrow lumen, hemolysis of transfused erythrocytes was a major concern. We the...

Background:There is a paucity of research considering sexuality and intimacy in palliative care. It is therefore unclear whether palliative care professionals have a role in addressing these issues with patients and their partners.Aim:To understand people's experiences of sexuality and intimacy when living with a terminal illness.Design:A Heideggerian hermeneutic (interpretive) phenomenological st...

The authors report the clinical case of a 12-year-old boy with an extensive superficial venous network in almost every area of the body, present since birth and worsening in recent months, with the occurence of superficial venous thrombosis. No other changes on physical examination were noted, no symptoms and no analytical or imaging findings were found. Histological examination of the lesions rev...

This study describes the clinical, histopathological, and virological characterization of teat papillomatosis from Brazilian dairy cattle herds. Four types of bovine papillomavirus were identified (BPV6, 7, 9, and 10); one of these (BPV7) is being detected for the first time in Brazilian cattle.

An amphiphilic polymer RGD-PEG-Chol which can be produced in large scale at a very low cost has been synthesized successfully. The synthesized intermediates and final products were characterized and confirmed by (1)H nuclear magnetic resonance spectrum ((1)H NMR) and Fourier transform infrared spectrum (FT-IR). The paclitaxel- (PTX-) loaded liposomes based on RGD-PEG-Chol were then prepared by fil...

Cochlear implantation is a powerful tool for helping children with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss to gain the ability to hear, achieve age appropriate communication skills. However patient selection is of utmost importance to achieve optimum results.

This study aims to evaluate the impact of chemotherapy-induced alopecia (CIA) distress on body image, psychosocial well-being, and depression among breast cancer patients.

Diagnosis of chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS) is relatively rare but has been well documented in athletes. There are, however, few reports regarding return to athletic activity after surgery among elite-level athletes. We hypothesized that a majority of elite-level athletes would successfully return to their previous level of competition following fasciotomy for CECS. A retrospective...
