Conclusion: In the majority of the gram-positive-infected rabbit vertebrae there was high accumulation of111In-WBC. However, no accumulation of111In-WBC was observed in most of the vertebrae infected with gram-negative organisms, which release antichemotactic factors that prevent adequate accumulation of WBC at the infected area.Med Princ Pract (Source: Medical Principles and Practice)

Personalized Management of Cardiovascular Disorders
Personalized management of cardiovascular disorders (CVDs), also referred to as personalized or precision cardiology in accordance with general principles of personalized medicine, is the selection of best treatment for an individual patient. It involves the integration of various 'omics ’ technologies such as genomics and proteomics as well as other new technologies such as nanobiotechnology. Molecular diagnostics and biomarkers are important for linking diagnosis with therapy and monitoring of therapy. Because CVDs involve perturbations of large complex biological networks, a sy stems biology approach to CVD risk s...

Which Foetal-Pelvic Variables Are Useful for Predicting Caesarean Section and Instrumental Assistance?
Conclusion: The antero-posterior inlet was an efficient variable unlike the obstetric conjugate. The obstetric conjugate diameter should no longer be considered a useful variable in estimating the arrest of labour. Antero-posterior inlet diameter was a sagittal variable that should be taken into account. The comparison of sub-pubic angle and bi-parietal and antero-posterior outlet diameters was useful in identifying a risk of requiring instrumental assistance.Med Princ Pract 2017;26:359-367 (Source: Medical Principles and Practice)

Hydrogen Peroxide: A Potential Wound Therapeutic Target
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a topical antiseptic used in wound cleaning which kills pathogens through oxidation burst and local oxygen production. Hydrogen peroxide had been reported to be a reactive biochemical molecule synthesized by various cells which influences biological behavior through multiple mechanisms: alterations of membrane potential, generation of new molecules and changing intracellular redox balance which results in activation or inactivation of different signaling transduction pathways. Contrary to the traditional viewpoint that H2O2 probably impairs tissue through its high oxidative property, however, a ...

Mexico experienced only a small reduction of trauma deaths after severe crime reinforcement policies. This strategy in the war on drugs is shifting the drug market to other Central American countries.
