Novel Concepts for Clinical Pharmacology from "Calcium Paradox" due to Neuronal Interaction between Signalling Pathways Mediated by Ca2+ and cAMP: from 1975 to 2017

Leandro Bueno Bergantin and Afonso Caricati-Neto
Int Arch Clin Pharmacol Volume 3, Issue 1

Abstract: The solution for the so-called "calcium paradox" has been revealed 4 years ago, when we demonstrated the involvement of the interaction between Ca2+ and cAMP signalling pathways (Ca2+/cAMP signalling interaction) in this enigma.

Dietary Flavonoids and Colorectal Cancer: Evidence from Epidemiological Studies

Katrin Sak
Int Arch Clin Pharmacol Volume 3, Issue 1

Abstract: Identification of dietary agents related to colorectal carcinogenesis is of high importance to decrease the global burden of this severe disorder. As flavonoids abundantly present in plant-based food items are suggested to exert various anticancer activities in numerous experimental models, evidence from epidemiological studies about association.

Prolonged Coagulopathy Following Rattlesnake Envenomation Responsive to Antivenom: A Case Report

Megan Z Roberts, Brian P McKinzie, Stuart M Leon, Stephen A Fann and Nicole M Bohm
Int Arch Clin Pharmacol Volume 3, Issue 1

Abstract: Venom-specific immunoglobulin G fragments are used for the management of patients with North American crotalid envenomation. In this case, ongoing coagulopathy and clinically significant sequelae required a protracted course of antivenom therapy in a patient experiencing severe rattlesnake envenomation.

Pharmaceutical Characterization and Detection Using Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering

Tawfik A Saleh
Int Arch Clin Pharmacol Volume 3, Issue 1

Abstract: Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is a surface sensitive method that results in the enhancement of Raman scattering by molecules adsorbed on rough metal surfaces. The enhancement factor can be as much as 107 -1015, which allows the technique to be sensitive enough to detect single molecules.

Levothyroxine for Hypothyroidism: Current Status of Biowaiver and Bioequivalence Studies

Nunez-Guzman NA, Munoz-Ibarra AI, Ruiz-Molina D, Figueroa-Nunez B and Garcia-Perez ME
Int Arch Clin Pharmacol Volume 3, Issue 1

Abstract: Hypothyroidism is a common disease that needs to be closely treated, in order to reduce adverse symptoms and pathophysiological effects. For thyroid hormone replacement is preferred a therapy with a synthetic form of thyroxine (levothyroxine), a drug recognized by its Narrow Therapeutic Index. Generic levothyroxine can be an economic alternative for Hypothyroidism treatment.
