The thrombocytopenia associated with cocaine consumption has been well documented]. Severe thrombocytopenia usually occurs within 3 weeks of intravenous or inhaled cocaine abuse. Microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MHA) associated with cocaine is rare. We would like to report a case of cocaine-induced atypical hemolyticus uremic syndrome. Clinical Observation: this is a 29-year-old Causasian patient, followed in a psychiatric center under duress for 6 years for behavioral disorders, hallucination...

Background: Convolvulus arvensis L. (Convolvulaceae) possess several biological properties and has been used in the treatment of hepatic obstructions. The present study aimed to evaluate the relaxant effects of the alcoholic extract of C. arvensis on both spontaneous and phenylephrine-induced contraction of isolated rat portal vein. Materials and Methods: First, the effect of the extracts was examined on spontaneous rhythmic contraction of longitudinal-cut portal strips, the extract was added cu...

This article discusses the dose load of people working with a C-arm X-ray system during orthopedic procedures. We measured the effective doses received by the doctor-operator and his assistant at three points of the body—head, gonads and feet, in radiography mode (single shot) and in three sub-modes of the fluoroscopy mode—continuous fluoroscopy; 1/2 dose fluoroscopy and pulse fluoroscopy. Calculations were made for dose rate the resulting our measurements due to the fact that at the different e...

Warfarin is a coumarin derivative oral anticoagulant with a narrow therapeutic international normalized ratio (INR) range. Regular and accurate INR monitoring is essential for optimal anticoagulation management and to reduce the risk of adverse events. However, achieving and maintaining the therapeutic INR range are still a challenge as it is affected by several clinical and non-clinical factors. In this review paper, we analyzed how the non-clinical factors like socio-demographic, modifiable ri...

Three-dimensional (3D) genome structure plays an important role in the regulation of gene expression. Alteration of 3D genome structure can change cell’s gene expression pattern that causes cellular function change and thus could be used as a novel therapy for treating many diseases including COVID-19. Genotoxic drug is the only drug that could be used to alter 3D genome structure. Since at present no purpose-made non-carcinogenic genotoxic drugs for altering genome structure are available and f...

Chloroquine (CQ) was initially synthesized as an antimalarial agent, but later on, it also shows immunomodulatory, anticancer, and antiviral effects in clinical practice. Although CQ has been used to treat various conditions for more than half century, the underlying mechanisms of its diverse therapeutic actions remain incomplete. In this paper, we hypothesize that targeting three-dimensional genome architecture might be one of the mechanisms of CQ’s diverse therapeutic actions. Based on this hy...

Syzygium aromaticum is used in combination with other plants as an al-coholic infusion by traditional practitioners to treat infections. It has been selected for evaluation for its antimicrobial properties to justify its use in traditional pharmacopoeia. The fruits were used as plant material while the microbial germs consisted of six reference strains: Escherichia coli ATCC 25922, Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 29213, Salmonella typh
