What resources do you use while on the job

Hello everyone, I was wondering what resources do you use when you get various queries from a doctor. For example lets say patient is prescribed X drug but it's not available and you have to suggest a suitable alternative? Also do you have a resource for checking the latest guidelines for various conditions e.g. recommended treatment for hypertension? Thanks

Authors: Iwasaki H, Yamazaki H, Takasaki H, Suganuma N, Nakayama H, Toda S, Masudo K Abstract Anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) is associated with an extremely poor prognosis and is resistant to the majority of chemotherapies. In 2015, lenvatinib was approved for treating ATC in Japan. The present study aimed to evaluate the overall survival (OS) of patients with ATC treated with lenvatinib. A total of 23 patients with a definitive histological diagnosis of ATC who were treated at Kanagawa Cancer Center (Yokohama, Kanagawa. Japan) were enrolled. Surgical treatment was possible in 10 patients (including one debulking ...

Authors: Kırça M, Yeşilkaya A Abstract Background/aim: Angiotensin II (Ang II)-induced molecular signaling pathways play a significant role in the progression of cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension and atherosclerosis. In addition to the well-known effects of Ang II, it may activate epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) in a process known as transactivation, which contributes to vascular pathologies. The aim of this study was to determine whether losartan could reduce EGFR transactivation induced by Ang II. Additionally, we evaluated the roles of heparin-binding epidermal-like growth fact...

This study investigated the effects of regorafenib in experimental models without HCC. Methods: Fibrosis (in vivo and in vitro), inflammation, liver damage (aminotransferases), angiogenesis (matrigel implantation) and in vivo systemic and portal hemodynamics were assessed in different mouse and rat models (bile duct ligation, CCl4, partial portal vein ligation) after acute and chronic treatment with regorafenib. Results: Long-term treatment with regorafenib improved portal hypertension most likely due to blunted angiogenesis, without affecting fibrosis progression or regression. Interestingly, acute administration ...
