Sub-chronic toxicological studies of transition metal complexes of naproxen on sprague-dawley rats
Conclusion In the present investigation, there were no significant alterations in histopathological studies and physical parameters though some signs of abnormalities had been found but hematological and hormonal data did not suggest any inflammatory or toxicological activity. However, we observed that naproxen showed more side effects than metal complexes which indicated that carboxylic group (COOH) of naproxen may be responsible for showing those most of the side effects.

The hemodynamic repercussions of the autonomic modulations in growth-restricted fetuses
Conclusion Fetal heart rate pattern was influenced by maternal and fetal autonomic tone. Maternal cardiovascular oscillations were reflected in the umbilical circulation in healthy pregnancy Fetal distress was featured by sympathetic overactivity and the reduction of vagal tone. Such autonomic modulations was manifested by the decelerative pattern of CTG and deteriorated umbilical hemodynamics. Graphical abstract (Source: Alexandria Journal of Medicine)

Sub therapeutic drug levels among HIV/TB co-infected patients receiving Rifampicin in northwestern Tanzania: A cross sectional clinic based study
Conclusion The magnitude of sub-therapeutic ARV plasma levels is high among adult HIV/TB co-infected patients on anti-TB co-treatment in Tanzania. These patients stand a high risk of inadequate virological suppression with a potential resistance development and a long term poor clinical outcome. Identifying at risk patients and adherence enhancement could potentially improve the overall outcome of this subgroup of patients in resource restricted setting like ours where TDM is not available.
