Background: Andrographis paniculata, Bryophyllum pinnatum and Clitoria ternatea are the nutritionally adequate herbs that are easily accessible and low cost. The presence of phytochemicals makes them helpful in the management of various diseases specifically being diabetes, anemia and hypertension leading to prevention of heart diseases. Objective: Current investigation is aimed to determine the nutritional and phytochemical composition of leaves of Andrographis paniculata, Bryophyllum pinnatum and Clitoria ternatea. Methods: All the experiments were done according to standard procedures of the Association of Analytical Co...

Conclusion: The significantly high increase in platelet count in the VMD treated rats, indicative of anemia and other physiological imbalances, highlights the effect of micronutrient (mineral and vitamins) deficiencies in the diet. There is also the possibility that the anti-nutrients factors present in Moringa oleifera prevented uptake and bioavailability of nutrients, since the MOLM did not undergo any processing that could have removed or reduced these antinutrients. Further studies are still needed on Moringa oleifera leaves to validate the bioavailability of nutrients from the plant.

AbstractPremature ovarian insufficiency (POI) is a major cause of reduced female fertility and affects approximately 1% women under 40  years of age. Recent advances emphasize the genetic heterogeneity of POI. Fanconi anemia (FA) genes, traditionally known for their essential roles in DNA repair and cytogenetic instability, have been demonstrated to be involved in meiosis and germ cell development. Here, we conducted whole-exome s equencing (WES) in 50 Han Chinese female patients with POI. Rare missense variants were identified inFANCA (Fanconi anemia complementation group A): c.1772G  >  A (p.R591Q) ...

AbstractBackgroundAnemia and elevated red cell distribution width (RDW) or mean corpuscular volume (MCV) are associated with an adverse prognosis in patients with cardiovascular disease and critical illness. Limited data exist regarding these associations in unselected cardiac intensive care unit (CICU) patients.MethodsRetrospective cohort study of CICU patients between January 1, 2007, and December 31, 2015, with a hemoglobin (Hb) level measured at admission. Multivariable regression was performed to determine predictors of hospital mortality, and Kaplan –Meier analysis was used to determine post-discharge survival....
