Abstract Background: Acute cough is the most common symptom among children in primary care, but the impact of cough episodes was never investigated in Italian families. Methods: A cross-sectional telephone survey was conducted on a representative sample of Italian families, randomly selected from general population; a specific and validated questionnaire was used. Results: The sample (604 calls) was uniform by geographical distribution, and by children age and gender. Mean cough episode was 3.1/year, they were short lasting (only 4.7%> 2 weeks). Independent predictors of children cough e...

s-Quevedo A, Rodríguez-Jaramillo C Abstract BACKGROUND:  Homeopathy has been widely applied in freshwater species but rarely in marine fish. Farm stress destabilises host-pathogen equilibrium, favouring parasites and disease. Coccidian endoparasites cause intestinal infections and cell degeneration. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  Naturally parasite-infested juvenile snapper Lutjanus guttatus (n = 430; weight 1.9 ± 0.01 g; length 4.9 ± 0.03 cm) specimens were distributed in group sizes of 43, in 10 fiberglass tanks (100 L) with aeration and cont...

About a third of cancer patients use alternative medicine — but many of them don’t tell their doctors, according to a new research letter published in JAMA Oncology. Complementary and alternative therapies are those that people use in addition to or instead of traditional medical care. Out of about 3,100 cancer patients who responded to questions about cancer and complementary therapy use through the 2012 National Health Interview Survey, just over 1,000 reported using one or more of these therapies during the prior year, the research letter says. Of these, about a third said they did not tell their doctors tha...

Abstract In the past few years, biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been standout amongst the most utilized nanoparticles both in the field of therapeutics and clinical practices. Therefore, the current study aimed to synthesize AgNPs for the first time using aqueous root extracts of important plants of Pakistan i.e. Bergenia ciliata, Bergenia stracheyi, Rumex dantatus and Rumex hastatus and characterize them. In addition, antibacterial activity of synthesized AgNPs at 30-150 μg/well was assessed using well diffusion method against Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus haemolyticus...

Abstract Arsenic is a toxicant that has no dose threshold below which exposures are not harmful. Here I report a curious association of chronic homeopathic arsenic ingestion with nonspecific symptoms in a Swiss teenager. For about 4 years she had taken globules of a freely purchasable homeopathic remedy containing inorganic arsenic (iAs), infinitesimally diluted to D6 (average arsenic content per single globule: 0.85 ± 0.08 ng). In the previous 7 months she had taken 20 to 50 globules daily (average 30 ng arsenic daily). She complained of nausea, stomach and abdominal cramps, diarrhoea and flatulence, heada...

ConclusionsThe efficacy endpoint was not reached, and BRN-01 administration was not demonstrated as an efficient treatment to alleviate HF symptoms due to adjuvant ET in breast cancer patients. However, the study drug administration led to decreased HFS with a positive impact on QoL. Without any recommended treatment to treat or alleviate the HF-related disabling symptoms, Actheane ® could be a promising option, providing an interesting support for better adherence to ET, thereby reducing the risk of recurrence with a good tolerance profile.
