Authors: Ma W, Wang W, Huang X, Yao G, Jia Q, Shen J, Ouyang H, Chang Y, He J Abstract Red ginseng is often combined with Aconiti Lateralis Radix Praeparata to reduce alkaloids-related toxicity of the latter. Such herb-pairing also results in better therapeutic effect in heart failure, as compared to the singular use of either herb. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of Aconiti Lateralis Radix Praeparata and its combination with red ginseng on the activities of CYP450 enzymes in rats. A sensitive and reliable HPLC-MS/MS method was established and validated for the simultaneous determination of ...

Dr. Zeyad Baker thought he was pretty proactive and thorough in thinking through how his team of doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and medical assistants could address the surging number of cases of COVID-19 cases in New York.

He turned the driveways of a few of the ProHEALTH centers into drive-thru COVID-19 testing centers, and worked with doctors and nurses to a...

Abstract OBJECTIVES: To estimate the prevalence of cardiometabolic diseases and their association with polypharmacy in elderly people at the University of the Third Age (Portuguese acronym: UnATI). METHODS: A cross-sectional, descriptive, analytical study with 121 elderly patients. The prevalence ratio, Pearson's Chi-square test and Fisher's exact test were used as measures of association. RESULTS: At the mean age of 68.3, most elderly had at least one cardiometabolic disease (82.6%), of which hypertension was the most prevalent (71.1%), and consumed prescription drugs of continuous use (92.6%). Almost h...

Authors: Yu C, Zhan X, Liu C, Liao S, Xu J, Liang T, Zhang Z, Chen J Abstract BACKGROUND This retrospective study aimed to investigate the risk factors associated with the recurrence of L5-S1 disc herniation after percutaneous endoscopic transforaminal discectomy (PETD). MATERIAL AND METHODS There were 484 patients L5-S1 disc herniation who underwent PETD who were divided into the recurrence group (n=46) and the non-recurrence group (n=438). Transforaminal endoscopic approaches included modifications of the Yeung endoscopy spine system (YESS) (the intraforaminal intradiscal approach) and the transforaminal endoscop...

RARITAN, NJ, March 28, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson today announced the VOYAGER PAD study met its primary efficacy and principal safety endpoints, demonstrating the XARELTO® (rivaroxaban) vascular dose (2.5 mg twice daily) plus aspirin (100 mg once daily) was superior to aspirin alone in reducing the risk of major adverse limb and cardiovascular (CV) events by 15 percent in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD) after lower-extremity revascularization, with similar rates of TIMI[1] major bleeding. VOYAGER PAD is the only study to show a significant benefit...
