The study will evaluate Apitox, pure honeybee venom as a treatment for pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis of the knee.
Determine the effects of Apitox add-on therapy on the progression of disability in all forms of multiple sclerosis (MS) utilizing the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) and the MS Fun...
To evaluate the efficacy of Lyophilized amniotic fluid as compared to the Saline Injection, placebo control in the treatment of moderate osteoarthritis of the knee.
The primary purpose of this study is to determine whether a single ultrasound-guided intra-articular injection of botulinum toxin A associated to splinting is effective in reducing pain at...
Introduction: Osteoarthritis of the knee is a very common disease. However there are few treatment options for these patients. Botulinum toxin type A is an option for chronic pain. If the ...
Biodefense vaccine are destined to be stockpiled for periods of time and deployed in the event of a public health emergency. In this report, we compared the potency of liquid and lyophilized (thermost...
The diverse effects of histamine are mediated by discrete histamine receptors. The principal repository of histamine in the body is the mast cell. However, the effects of histamine on mast cells, espe...
Recent studies have suggested that intra-articular injection of botulinum toxin A (BTA) may have analgesic effects in degenerative joint diseases. We aim to assess the efficacy of intra-articular inje...
Safe and effective antitoxins to treat and prevent botulism are needed for biodefense. We have developed recombinant antibody-based therapeutics for botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) serotypes A, B, and E. ...
Evaluating the use of intra-articular injections as a treatment for painful hip osteoarthritis: a randomized, double-blind, multicenter, parallel-group study comparing a single 6-mL injection of hylan G-F 20 with saline.
Hip osteoarthritis (OA) is difficult to treat. Steroid injections reduce pain with short duration. With widespread adoption of office-based, image-guided injections, hyaluronic acid is a potentially r...
Drugs that bind to but do not activate histamine receptors, thereby blocking the actions of histamine or histamine agonists. Classical antihistaminics block the histamine H1 receptors only.
Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).
A 150 kDa neurotoxic protein produced by CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM. When consumed in contaminated food it can cause paralysis and death. In its purified form, it has been used in the treatment of BLEPHAROSPASM and STRABISMUS.
A class of histamine receptors discriminated by their pharmacology and mode of action. Histamine H3 receptors were first recognized as inhibitory autoreceptors on histamine-containing nerve terminals and have since been shown to regulate the release of several neurotransmitters in the central and peripheral nervous systems.
