Authors: Sogan N, Kapoor N, Singh H, Kala S, Nayak A, Nagpal BN Abstract Background &objectives: Vector control strategies play significant role in reducing the transmission of malaria, dengue and other vector-borne diseases. The control of vector population using synthetic insecticides has resulted in development of insecticide resistance and negative effects on humans and environment. The present investigation evaluated the larvicidal potential of methanol, dichloromethane and hexane extracts of leaves and seeds of Ricinus communis (castor) plant against the early IV instar larvae of the dengue vector, Aedes ...

Authors: Ishimaru N, Kanzawa Y, Seto H, Kinami S Abstract We herein report a patient with syphilitic cervicitis and cervical cancer presenting as oropharyngeal syphilis. A 31-year-old Japanese woman with a history of unprotected vaginal and oral sex visited our hospital with right submandibular adenomas and erythema in the extremities. The fornix uteri was red, with a nodule noted. The rapid plasma reagin ratio was 1:3. She was diagnosed with syphilitic cervicitis and treated with amoxicillin for four weeks. Initial cervical cytology showed cells with mild nuclear enlargement, which was thought to be metaplasia ass...

We present a report of a 29-year-old woman with non-dipper type refractory hypertension due to the vascular compression of the medulla oblongata. The patient was diagnosed with hypertension at 17 years of age and underwent emergency Caesarean section at 26 weeks of gestation during 2 pregnancies due to severe high blood pressure. We suspected medullary compression by the curved posterior inferior cerebellar artery as the cause of her intractable hypertension, and she underwent Jannetta's decompression surgery. After the surgery, her blood pressure swiftly decreased to almost within the normal range, and her blood pressure ...

Authors: Fujita Y, Asano T, Sato S, Furuya MY, Temmoku J, Matsuoka N, Kobayashi H, Watanabe H, Suzuki E, Koga T, Endo Y, Kawakami A, Migita K Abstract We herein report a Japanese patient with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) who developed the clinical manifestations of mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) and Sjögren's syndrome. The patient was a 36-year-old woman presenting with a periodic short-duration (2-3 days) fever and pleural pain. An MEFV gene analysis detected a complex allele mutation (P369S/R408Q) in exon 3 of the MEFV gene. Serological and clinical data showed the coexistence of MCTD and Sj&ou...

Authors: Umemoto G, Furuya H Abstract Various methods of rehabilitation for dysphagia have been suggested through the experience of treating stroke patients. Although most of these patients recover their swallowing function in a short period, dysphagia in Parkinson's disease (PD) and Parkinson-related disorder (PRD) degenerates with disease progression. Muscle rigidity and bradykinesia are recognized as causes of swallowing dysfunction, and it is difficult to easily apply the strategies for stroke to the rehabilitation of dysphagia in PD patients. Disease severity, weight loss, drooling, and dementia are important ...

There are only a few reports about the effects of balloon pulmonary angioplasty for CTEPH on the electrocardiographic criteria of right ventricular hypertrophy. Objective To determine the effect of balloon angioplasty on electrocardiography in patients with CTEPH. Methods We evaluated electrocardiograms in 19 ...

Even in elderly patients with CVD, CR may improve the activities of daily living (ADL). Methods Eighty-eight outpatients over 65 years of age at the beginning of a CR program (baseline) at Fukuoka University Hospital who had CVD and could be followed-up for up to 5 years were enrolled. CVD included ischemic heart disease, postoperative valvular heart disease,...

Conclusions The scheduled administration of secondary prophylactic Peg G prolonged the progression-free survival in patients treated with mFFX. The combination therapy of Peg G and mFFX may be recommended in patients who exhibit grade 3-4 neutropenic events after prior mFFX cycles. PMID: 30996164 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
