This study will compare data associated with breastfeeding experiences and outcomes--specifically, breastfeeding continuation after initiation, exclusivity for 6 months of an infant's life...
The benefits of breastfeeding are increasingly known of the population and breastfeeding rates in the country have been increasing, but still are below satisfactory to the Ministry of Heal...
This research will investigate different aspects of the 'signalling' between mother and infant during breastfeeding in a stressful situation following late preterm delivery, when breastfee...
The primary aim of this study is to find out whether it is feasible to conduct a larger study looking at the effect of mobile phone text messaging added to motivational interviewing on num...
A barrier to initiating progestin contraceptives in the early postpartum period is the concern of interference with breastfeeding, specifically lactogenesis. In this trial, the investigato...
The advances and the impact of nanostructured systems on therapeutics constitute a constantly evolving reality. New strategies have been developed for drug delivery control and for directing these sys...
Fluorescent drug delivery systems provide a means to track drug release, trace processes of translocation, monitor excretion of anticancer agents and predict therapeutic responses. Traditional fluores...
Natural nanocarriers found in biological frameworks have motivated the scientists to fabricate new structures that help to build characteristic systems mimicking the natural processes. Furthermore, th...
Self-emulsifying Drug Delivery Systems are being introduced and are increasing in popularity for improving the solubility of lipophilic drugs. They are isotropic mixtures of drug, oil, surfactant and/...
Engineering of drug delivery systems has evolved in recent decades from comparably simple designs that merely controlled drug release to complex, often multistage systems that respond to multiple biol...
Systems for the delivery of drugs to target sites of pharmacological actions. Technologies employed include those concerning drug preparation, route of administration, site targeting, metabolism, and toxicity.
Forms to which substances are incorporated to improve the delivery and the effectiveness of drugs. Drug carriers are used in drug-delivery systems such as the controlled-release technology to prolong in vivo drug actions, decrease drug metabolism, and reduce drug toxicity. Carriers are also used in designs to increase the effectiveness of drug delivery to the target sites of pharmacological actions. Liposomes, albumin microspheres, soluble synthetic polymers, DNA complexes, protein-drug conjugates, and carrier erythrocytes among others have been employed as biodegradable drug carriers.
Overall systems, traditional or automated, to provide medication to patients in hospitals. Elements of the system are: handling the physician's order, transcription of the order by nurse and/or pharmacist, filling the medication order, transfer to the nursing unit, and administration to the patient.
Overall systems, traditional or automated, to provide medication to patients.
Drug formulations or delivery systems intended to discourage the abuse of CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES. These may include physical barriers to prevent chewing or crushing the drug; chemical barriers that prevent extraction of psychoactive ingredients; agonist-antagonist combinations to reduce euphoria associated with abuse; aversion, where controlled substances are combined with others that will produce an unpleasant effect if the patient manipulates the dosage form or exceeds the recommended dose; delivery systems that are resistant to abuse such as implants; or combinations of these methods.
