Structural and thermal analyses of zinc and lactose in homeopathic triturated systems.

Structural and thermal analyses of zinc and lactose in homeopathic triturated systems. Homeopathy. 2017 Aug;106(3):160-170 Authors: Holandino C, Oliveira AP, Homsani F, de Paiva JP, Barbosa GM, de Lima Zanetti MR, de Barros Fernandes T, Siqueira CM, da Veiga VF, Coli Louvisse de Abreu L, Marzotto M, Bernardi P, Bonamin LV, Bellavite P, Rossi AL, Picciani PHS Abstract BACKGROUND: A series of different experimental approaches was applied in Zincum metallicum (Zinc met.) samples and lactose controls. Experiments were designed to elucidate the effect of zinc trituration and dynamization on physicochemical properties of homeopathic formulations, using lactose as excipient. METHODS: Zinc met. potencies (Zinc met 1-3c) were triturated and dynamized using lactose as excipient, according to Brazilian Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia. Lactose samples (LAC 1-3c) were also prepared following the same protocol and used as controls. The samples were analyzed structurally by Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS), X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) with Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and thermodynamically by Thermogravimetry (TG) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). RESULTS: AAS analysis detected 97.0 % of zinc in the raw material, 0.75 % (Zinc met 1c) and 0.02% (Zinc met 2c). XRD analysis showed that inter-atomic crystalline spacing of lactose was not modified by dynamization. Am...

Discussion Normal kidneys regulate water balance to maintain a plasma osmolality of 275-290 mOsm/kg normally. Thirst and arginine vasopressin or antidiuretic hormone (ADH) are the primary regulators of plasma osmolality. ADH is made in the hypothalamus and released by the posterior pituitary gland. ADH acts on the kidney’s distal collecting duct to increase water reabsorption. ADH is appropriately released in hypovolemic states, such as dehydration caused by gastroenteritis. ADH has an ~10 minute half-life and therefore can respond to rapid changes in volume status. Sodium balance is regulated by aldosterone (as part...

To develop the system, the putative gene encoding the Dye-DLDH from Ca. Caldiarchaeum subterraneum was overexpressed in Escherichia coli, and the express...

AbstractMost tissue banks use the conventional method; however, the automated method has advantages over the conventional method. The aim of this study was to compare the conventional and automated methods of culture in human cardiac tissue using an artificial contamination model. Myocardial samples were contaminated with sequential concentration (104 to 10−1 CFU/mL) withPseudomonas aeruginosa,Escherichia coli,Staphylococcus aureus andCandida albicans. Cultures were obtained from solution were the fragment was immersed and minced tissue, before and after the routine decellularization solution, with automated and...
