A Comprehensive Assessment of Hepatotoxicity Induced by Engineered Nanoparticles- A Review

S V S Rana

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: October 17, 2020

Liver is the major detoxifying centre of the body. It removes xenobiotics and their metabolites through metabolism or biliary excretion. Hepatocytes constitute 80% of total liver mass and play a major role in storage, synthesis, metabolism and redistribution of essential molecules. Liver has been known to accumulate > 90% of nanomatrerials translocated from other organs. Bioconcentration of nanoparticles may lead to impairment of structure and function of hepatic cells. Therefore, it is critical...

Factors Affecting Initiation of Breast Feeding: A Cross Section Study

Mayasah A. Sadiq and Alaa A. Salih

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 19, 2020

Breastfeeding is the ideal and most natural way of nurturing infants. Mother’s milk is the most complete food in the first months of life. According to the American Association of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines, mother's milk must be started immediately after delivery and it must be considered as the only food of baby in the first six months of life and then it should be preserved one year as one of the main components in the diet of a child. A cross-sectional study conducted from February to May...

Role of Small Intestine in Pathophysiology of Obesity and Metabolic Disease and Review of New Endobariatric Procedure Focusing on Small Intestine

Dhruvan Patel, MD, Ricardo Morgenstern, MD, Anisha Daxini and Steven Lichtenstein, DO

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: October 26, 2020

Malabsorptive procedure mimics Roux-n-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery. RYGB exhibits significant hormonal changes after surgery which results in acute and immediate glycemic control via an anti-diabetic weight-independent mechanism, even without significant weight loss after surgery. Therefore, malabsorptive procedure can be considered metabolic procedure because it will help in reducing weight as well as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). In this review article, we aim to provide an overview on t...

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 26, 2020

Therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) is an important adjunct therapy to reduce levels of donor-specific antibodies (DSAs) associated with antibody mediated rejection (AMR) in solid organ transplant recipients, especially kidney recipients. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of TPE on DSAs and clinical/pathologic evidence of rejection in small bowel transplant recipients. ...

The Impact of Different Induction Immunosuppressive Therapy on Long Term Kidney Transplant Function When Measured by Iothalamate Clearance

Tambi Jarmi, MD, Samir Khouzam, MD, Nitika Shekhar, Launia White, BS, David O Hodge, Martin L Mai, MD and Hani M Wadei, MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 17, 2020

Improvement in short term outcomes after kidney transplant has been achieved by using different induction and maintenance therapeutic approaches. Long term outcomes have not matched the expectations of the transplant stakeholders. Our study aimed to address the early impact of induction agents on long term outcome of kidney transplant when measured by Iothalamate clearance. All adult kidney transplant recipients between January of 2012 and December of 2016 were reviewed. 649 patients were divide...

Detecting Mycobacterium ulcerans in Clinical Specimens from Ghana: Comparative Evaluation of BU-LAMP and IS2404 PCR

Enoch Aninagyei, Rufai Tanko, Comfort Dede Tetteh, Kofi Adjei Ntiri, Mathias Dongyele, Alex Boye and Desmond Omane Acheampong

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 19, 2020

Conventional and nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) have been used to identify Mycobacterium ulcerans in separate studies and different specimens. However, the sensitivities of these three techniques have not been compared in a single study. Samples were collected from patients suspected of Buruli ulcer disease (BUD) in Southern Ghana. Ulcerative and non-ulcerative forms of the disease were swabbed and aspirated respectively. Insertion seque...

Our Experience Treatment Inhalation Injury in Children in Uzbekistan

Babur M Shakirov, PhD and Noila Ashurova, MD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 23, 2020

Thermal inhalation injury is one of the factors aggravating the course of burn disease and resulting in patient’s death. According to literary data, damage to respiratory tract occurs approximately in 30% of cases with severe burn injury. Thermal inhalation injury severity can be determined not so much by airway burns but by toxic inhalation damage to the lungs and whole body with high toxic gaseous and vaporized chemical components of smoke. During a 3 year period 28 children with deep burns ...
