RIFAMPICIN AND ISONIAZID MICROCAPSULES FOR TREATMENT OF TUBERCULOSIS
A. Bajaj et al.
International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research , 2012,
Abstract: Rifampicin and Isoniazid microcapsules were prepared by phase seperation coacervation method for inclusion in suspension formulations. Ethyl cellulose was used as the coating material for microencapsulation. Developed microcapsules were characterized for visual appearance, photomicrography, sieve analysis, drug content, bulk density, ethyl cellulose content and drug release studies. Microcapsules were found to be irregular in shape, free flowing with wide particle distribution in the range of 178-422 μm with 75 % drug content. Both Rifampicin and Isoniazid microcapsules exhibited prolonged release with first order kinetics. Rifampicin and Isoniazid microcapsule suspension formulation was characterized for pH, viscosity, sedimentation rate and drug content. The developed suspension was found to be uniform with drug content between 99-100%. Stability studies indicated that Rifampicin and Isoniazid suspension formulation exhibited greater stability as compared to pure drug suspensions. Hence, Rifampicin and Isoniazid suspension exhibits a potential to be developed as controlled release paediatric and geriatric formulation.

Abstract: Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the seroprevalence of hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) among children who examined before elective surgery in Mardin province. Materials and Methods: Between 01 November 2008 and 30 April 2010, a total of 556 patients aged 0–16 years, who planned to be operated, were investigated for viral hepatitis seroprevalences in the Mardin Women and Pediatrics Hospital. Children’s blood samples were tested for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs), HCV antibody (anti-HCV) and HIV antibody (anti-HIV) markers by chemiluminescent immunoassay with Advia Centaur (Siemens) autoanalyser. Results: A total of 556 children (441 boys, 115 girls) age under 16 years who planned to be underwent elective surgery were included. We found positive HBsAg and negative anti-HBs in 3 patients (0.5%); Negative HBsAg and positive anti-HBs were found in 473 children (85.1%); Negative HBsAg and negative anti-HBs were observed in 80 children (14.4%). None of the patients had positive HCV and HIV antibody. Conclusion: HBsAg positivity rate was lower and anti-HBs positivity rate was higher than expected levels. This study indicated that vaccination was successful in our region.
Erythrocytes Sedimentation Rate and Clinical Use
Kutlucan A et al.
Konuralp Tip Dergisi , 2012,
Abstract: Measuring acute phase response helps us diagnose and follow up diseases. Erythrocytes Sedimentation Rate (ESR) among those measurements is a biochemical method which is commonly used. Roll formation or clustering of erythrocytes determines of sedimentation rate, and main factors affecting those events are fibrinogen, α 2 , β and γ globins. Moreover, some conditions such as ratio between plasma and erythrocytes, plasma viscosity, tube used for measuring in sedimentation rate, room temperature and anti-coagulant agent used affect Erythrocyte sedimentation rate measurement. It can be elevated in several pathological conditions as well as in pregnancy, senility and menstruation. ESH gives general idea or information as pulse and body temperature do; it is elevated in several severe diseases, it can be course in normal levels. In this review, it was aimed to present its use of clinical practice, definition, measurement methods, and factors affecting ESH.

Uluda? A et al.
Konuralp Tip Dergisi , 2012,
Abstract: Aim: In this study, it was aimed to establish the stressing factors and expectations of mothers from newborn intensive care unit (NICU) staff and the complimentary role of family physicians on maternal coping with the stress. Methods: Study was conducted in 78 mothers of NICU patients in Eskisehir Osmangazi University. Socio-demographic characteristics and prenatal, follow up of pregnancy and postnatal period were recorded. General health questionnaire and The State-Trait Anxiety Inventory were assessed. Results: The most common reason for infants to be admitted to the NICU was prematurity. Mothers’ psychological stress levels depend on so many variables. There were 41 mothers who visit and hold their babies effects depresssion and anxiety and as the hospital stay prolonged and gestational age decreased, mothers’ anxiety and depression increased. High anxiety related factors among the mothers were appearance of their small, fragile baby. When mothers’ educational status was higher, depression and anxiety levels decreased. Maternal age did not affect anxiety levels and depression. Presence of abortions or stillbirth in previous pregnancies increased mothers state anxiety levels. Conclusion: Birth of a premature infant or an infant with congenital anomaly is to be seen as an ongoing traumatic life event, where psychotherapeutic support is to be recommended. In Turkey family practice application has been established. Family physicians after the birth, of a high risk infant; mothers and babies follow-up plan could be coordinated and because of increased frequency of mothers’ anxiety and acute mental disorders, family physician should follow the families at close range this period of time.

A. Vaseashta et al
Science and Technology of Advanced Materials , 2007,
Abstract: We present preliminary results of our joint investigations to monitor and mitigate environmental pollution, a leading contributor to chronic and deadly health disorders and diseases affecting millions of people each year. Using nanotechnology-based gas sensors; pollution is monitored at several ground stations. The sensor unit is portable, provides instantaneous ground pollution concentrations accurately, and can be readily deployed to disseminate real-time pollution data to a web server providing a topological overview of monitored locations. We are also employing remote sensing technologies with high-spatial and spectral resolution to model urban pollution using satellite images and image processing. One of the objectives of this investigation is to develop a unique capability to acquire, display and assimilate these valuable sources of data to accurately assess urban pollution by real-time monitoring using commercial sensors fabricated using nanofabrication technologies and satellite imagery. This integrated tool will be beneficial towards prediction processes to support public awareness and establish policy priorities for air quality in polluted areas. The complex nature of environmental pollution data mining requires computing technologies that integrate multiple sources and repositories of data over multiple networking systems and platforms that must be accurate, secure, and reliable. An evaluation of information security risks and strategies within an environmental information system is presented. In addition to air pollution, we explore the efficacy of nanostructured materials in the detection and remediation of water pollution. We present our results of sorption on advanced nanomaterials-based sorbents that have been found effective in the removal of cadmium and arsenic from water streams.

A. Souza et al.
International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research , 2012,
Abstract: This work was conducted at a Libreville herbal market located in Peyrie in order to inventory plants used by people for the management of cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension and to evaluate their pharmacological effects. The method of preparation and modes of administration were also recorded. Twenty nine herbalists were interviewed using questionnaires. Twenty two plant species belonging to sixteen families and seventeen recipes were identified. The commonly used plants were Guibourtia tessmannii, Musanga ceropioiodes, Senecio gabonensis. Among them, G. tessmannii appeared to be the most used plant species. Phytochemical studies on extracts of G. tessmannii revealed the presence of alkaloids, sugars, polyphenols, sterols, tannins and saponosids. Pharmacological studies performed in the isolated aorta of rats showed a vasorelaxant effect on adrenalin- or KCl- induced contraction. G Tessmannii-induced vasorelaxation was significantly but not totally reduced by endothelium removal or by a pretreatment with L-NAME, suggesting the involvement of endothelium-dependent and -independent mechanisms. Medicinal plants and G. tessmannii in particular may represent a source of efficient antihypertensive agents.
