As a result of the accumulating stress, many young people find it difficult to cope with mounting pressure and revert to drug and substance abuse. There has been increased research on the impact COVID-19 had on the normal lives of people. However, studies of this effect on substance abuse among the youth are scarce. The objective of ...

Effect of Granules Size on the Release Kinetics of Ibuprofen from Its Matrix Tablet

Ekaete I. Akpabio, Daniel E. Effiong, Timma O. Uwah, Sabinus I. Ofoefule
Background: Sustained-release matrix tablets have been used to present a wide range of drugs for oral use. Matrix tablets are formed by compaction of drug granules prepared by granulation of drug-polymer mix. Objective: This study was to evaluate different granule sizes of ibuprofen produced using two polymers and determine whether granule size and polymer type influenced Ibuprofen release from the sustained-release matrix tablets. Method: Ethyl cellulose and Carbopol 940 were used separately at...

Effects of Intravenous Agent Used on Oxygen Desaturation during Suxamethonium Apnoea

George Tweneboah, Jane Acquaye, Lorraine Sallah, Tsiri Agbenyega
Anesthesia induction consists of pre-oxygenation, intravenous agent, muscle relaxant which causes apnea for laryngoscopy and intubation. The three commonly used intravenous agents are Ketamine, Propofol and Thiopentone. However, various views have been expressed in relation to oxygen saturation during anesthesia. The study sought to affirm the rate of oxygen desaturation during suxamethonium apnea in relation to the intravenous induction agent used. An observational research design was adopted f...

Comparative Studies on the Effects of High Sound Levels on the Haematological Parameters and Antioxidant Levels of Wistar Albino Rats

Chinedu P. Nwuke, Ibeh Bartholomew, Chibuike Daniel Peter
This is a detailed experimental and comparative study evaluating the harmful effects of graded loud noise on hematological and antioxidant in Wistar albino rats. Wistar albino rats were divided into a control group (those kept away from the noise due to a generator set), groups 1 (exposed to varied, 85 - 105 db levels of loud noise from a generator) and groups 2 (exposed to less, 40 - 55 db levels of loud noise from generator set) and exposed to way off fumes from electrical generator sounds at ...

The Influence of Psychotropic Drugs on Investor Overconfidence

Marcia Zindel, Gabriel Ribeiro, Carlos H. Rocha, Sergio Da Silva
We study the effects of the self-reported intake of stimulants, depressants and hallucinogens on investor overconfidence. A total of 105 investors participated. We find that the frequency of drug use did not affect overcon-fidence. However, overconfidence was correlated with the use of psycho-tropic drugs in our sample; regardless of type, we find a positive correlation of 15 percent. Correlation of investor overconfidence with st

Study on the Interactions of Two Isomer Selaginellins as Novel Small Molecule Inhibitors Targeting PTP1B by Docking and Molecular Dynamics Simulations

Li Wang, Yi Wang, Dan Meng, Honglei Li
Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) plays a key role in down-regulation of insulin and leptin signaling pathways. Therefore, development of novel inhibitors of PTP1B has becoming research focus in reducing blood sugar levels for Diabetes Mellitus and Obesity. Hence, we selected two isomer Selaginellins (1 and 2) to explain and analyze the binding mechanism of the two potential inhibitors against the PTP1B by molecule docking a

Application of Neural Network to Medicine

Bahman Mashood, Greg Milbank
In this article we are going to introduce certain applications of the theory of neural network to medicine. In particular suppose for a given disease D, belonging to the category of immune deficiency diseases or cancers, there are numbers of drugs each with partial remedial effect on D. We are going to formulate a cocktail consisting of mixture of the above drugs with optimal remedial effect on D.
