Clinical evaluation of Acute Febrile Thrombocytopenia in Western Rajasthan - A hospital-based study.

CONCLUSION: The study showed that acute febrile thrombocytopenia is an important seasonal syndrome. The common causes are dengue fever and malaria. Early identification of these diseases and prompt treatment decreases complications and reduces mortality. PMID: 31593535 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS Early detection of SB CD without complications remains difficult even if advanced modalities are introduced. Our hypothesis is that the fecal occult blood test and routine blood test should be administered to patients with abdominal pain or gastrointestinal manifestations. Once the patients are found to have GI bleeding or anemia, they would be further examined according to the guideline and SBCE would be used in the early stage of SB CD.

CONCLUSIONS Our findings suggest that PLR is a useful parameter to consider when hematologists attempt to assess the risk of recurrence in ITP patients receiving first-line therapy, and the nonlinearity of PLR and ITP recurrence risk must be fully considered when constructing predictive models.

Conclusion: Knowledge of malaria, severity of child's illness and parents' drug request influenced the treatment practices of PMVs. Training PMVs on appropriate malaria management and community health education/sensitization to leverage on the influence of client-demand on ACT use is recommended to improve PMVs treatment practice. Funding: This study was conducted using mainly personal funds of the lead author with some support from the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital. PMID: 31741496 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract The publication of the Clinical Randomization of an Antifibrinolytic in Significant Hemorrhage-2 (CRASH-2) study and its intense dissemination prompted a renaissance for the use of the antifibrinolytic agent tranexamic acid (TXA) in acute trauma hemorrhage. Subsequent studies led to its widespread use as a therapeutic as well as prophylactic agent across different clinical scenarios involving bleeding, such as trauma, postpartum, and orthopedic surgery. However, results from the existing studies are confounded by methodological and statistical ambiguities and are open to varied interpretations. Substantia...

Publication date: November 2019Source: Mammalian Biology, Volume 99Author(s): Sameer B. Bajaru, Amol R. Kulavmode, Ranjit ManakadanAbstractHuman-dominated ecosystems are characterized by three main processes, viz., habitat degradation, habitat loss and habitat fragmentation, these posing a great threat to biodiversity. However, the relationships between these processes are not clearly understood. Moreover, habitat loss and habitat fragmentation occur at landscape-scale and their effects depend on the spatial scale. We trapped small mammals in a human-dominated area in the northern Western Ghats, India, at 23 sites in three...

AbstractThe purpose of this study was to assess the impact of pentoxifylline and vitamin E on the incidence and severity of radiotherapy-induced oral mucositis and dysphagia in head and neck cancer patients. This is a prospective, randomized, controlled study. Head and neck cancer patients receiving 30 –35 radiotherapy fractions with or without concurrent chemotherapy excluding those intolerant to xanthines, with any bleeding tendency were included. Sixty patients were enrolled; 30 patients received radiotherapy (control group) and 30 patients received radiotherapy with pentoxifylline and vitami n E (intervention gro...

Discussion Dengue is an important arboviral infection that affects about 40% of the world population. It is found mainly in topical and subtropical areas of the world mainly in developing countries but it range is spreading including the United States. A review of common arboviruses can be found here. It is a flaviavirus with 4 distinct serotypes named DENV-1 through DENV-4 and is spread by A. aegypti a day biting mosquito. Infection with one serotype confers immunity to that serotype but not the others. It does offer some protection for cross-infection but this only lasts a few months. Incubation period is 3-14 days with ...
