Personalized Medicine and Psychoanalysis: How Pharmacogenomic Testing Facilitates Depression Treatment

Deborah Serani

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: June 14, 2019

Pharmacogenomic testing offers enormous potential to manage mental disorders like depression. But many psychoanalysts aren't aware of its value and biotechnical power. This article explains how this form of personalized medicine can be used to aid in the treatment of patients with depression. With over 20 medications approved by the FDA to treat depression, and many others recommended for off-label use, treatment failure with antidepressants commonly occurs in clinical practice. Inviting genetic testing into the treatment plan when working with depressed patients can reduce the rate of medicat...

Efficacy of n-Heptane as a Xylene Substitute in Routine Histopathology

Anubhuti Shrivastava, Shreenivas Kallianpur and Sandeep Gupta

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 17, 2019

The aim of our study was to evaluate the efficacy of n-Heptane (C7H16) as a xylene substitute for clearing, deparaffinizing and staining procedures in routine histopathology. 30 biopsied oral tissues were divided in two halves, each half was processed by xylene and n-Heptane respectively. Kappa statistical analysis established agreement between observers in all criteria's with significant p value < 0.05. The p value (> 0.05) was not statistically significant with Mann-Whitney U Test, for all criteria's indicating comparable results between n-Heptane and xylene. The clarity, uniformity, crispne...

Elective reconstruction in the valgus hindfoot is a complex and varied field of orthopaedic surgery. Often multiple procedures, both bony and soft tissue are required. The surgical aims are to create a plantigrade foot, restore hindfoot alignment and re-create the medial longitudinal arch in an attempt to allow more normal biomechanical function. Invariably a calcaneal osteotomy is required to correct hindfoot alignment. There are various methods of performing a calcaneal osteotomy....
