Imran, Meenakshi Sajwan, Bader Alsuwayt, Mohammad AsifAbstractChitosan derivatives are reported as anticoagulants in the literature. This work was undertaken to develop novel chitosan derivatives as anticoagulants. The sulfonated derivatives of chitosan were formed by the reaction of chitosan derivatives with chlorosulfonic acid in N-N-dimethylformamide. The structures of these derivatives were established by FTIR and 1H-NMR spectra. The prepared derivatives were evaluated for their in vivo anticoagulant effects by the t...

We aimed to assess outcomes between dual antithrombotic therapy with DOACs plus an antiplatelet agent (Dual therapy) in comparison to warfarin plus two antiplatelet agents (Triple therap...

Conclusions: More than half the study patients received ibrutinib therapy at a submaximal dose without evidence of increased frequency of toxicities or disease progression. The rate of ibrutinib discontinuation was lower in our cohort than has been reported in other settings. Submaximal ibrutinib dosing will have to be further systematically evaluated.

CONCLUSION: SIL is a laparoscopic technique that can safely be offered to patients presenting abdominal diseases. The main advantages include enhanced cosmetic results and reduced abdominal trauma. The main disadvantages are patient selection, a longer operative time for some procedures, and a need to expose the operative field for some other procedures. PMID: 31710087 [PubMed - in process]
