Mortality by Lesions Caused by Transit on the TriCountry Border Shared by Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina by Ludmila Mourão Xavier Gomes in Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science Purpose: To analyse the lesions caused transit (LCTs) mortality trend on the tri-country border shared by Brazil (Paraná), Argentina and Paraguay. Methods: A retrospective time-series study between 1996 and2015 carried out in 17 municipalities of Paraná, located on the border with Paraguay and Argentina in comparison with non-frontier region. There was a calculation of mortality rates and verified the mortality trend through polynomial regression. https://biomedscis.com/fulltext/mortality-by-lesions-caused-by-transit-on-the-tri-country-border-shared-by-brazil-paraguay-and-argentina.ID.000223.php To Know More About Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science Please Visit: Biomedscis Are Click On:   https://Biomedscis.Com/

Approach of Intern Doctors to Antibiotic Prescription for Sore Throat: OAJBS Publishers

Approach of Intern Doctors to Antibiotic Prescription for Sore Throat by Mohammad Abdullah in Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science Objective: While former studies have investigated the approach of general practitioners (GPs) to antibiotic prescription, there is scarce evidence on the prescription trends for young, primary care doctors despite their cardinal role in the overall practice of antibiotic administration. The research aimed to study the approach of young doctors towards antibiotic prescription for a commonly encountered ailment, sore throat. Methods and Materials: A cross-sectional study of the interns’ clinical approach was conducted at CMH Lahore Hospital. A questionnaire containing four clinical vignettes, each with various presentations of sore throat was given to interns chosen by random, convenience sampling and 80 interns with a minimum clinical experience of 6 months participated in the study. https://biomedscis.com/fulltext/approach-of-intern-doctors-to-antibiot

Utility of Cell and Molecular Biology Research for the Diagnosis and Therapy of Oral Premalignant Lesions: OAJBS Publishers

Utility of Cell and Molecular Biology Research for the Diagnosis and Therapy of Oral Premalignant Lesions by Carmen-Elena Cotrutz in Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science Introduction: Premalignant oral lesions represent one of the most important risk factors for the development of oral scuamoous cell carcinoma, the sixth most common malignancy diagnosed worldwide. The characteristic phenotypic and molecular variability of these lesions condition the early identification of the risk of malignant transformation, with a significant impact on prognosis and quality of life. Accurate and complete description of cell interactions involved in the carcinogenic cascade requires the use of the results of cell and molecular biology research. In this regard, this paper aims to evaluate the intricate role of molecular markers in assessing the progression of the most common premalignant oral lesions. https://biomedscis.com/fulltext/utility-of-cell-and-molecular-biology-research-for-the-diagnosis

Better Outcomes in High-Power Short-Duration Compared to Low-Power Long-Duration Atrial Fibrillation Ablation in One-Year Follow-Up: OAJBS Publishers

Better Outcomes in High-Power Short-Duration Compared to Low-Power Long-Duration Atrial Fibrillation Ablation in One-Year Follow-Up by Fabricio Vassallo in Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science Introduction: Different results are described after atrial fibrillation ablation and multiples predictors of recurrence are well established. Objective: Evaluate and analyze if patients submitted to first time atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation with high-power short-duration (HPSD) have better outcomes compared to low-power long-duration (LPLD). Methods: Observational, retrospective study, 144 patients submitted to HPSD and LPLD ablation. HPSD: 71 patients, 50(70.42%) males, mean age 59.73 years, 52(73.24%) hypertension, 44(61.97%) obstructive apnea, 23(32.39%) arterial disease, 20(28.17%) Diabetes, and 10(14.08%) strokes. CHADS2VASC2 2.57. CT: 73 patients, 50(68.49%) males, mean age 60.7 years, 53(72.60%) hypertension, 41(56.16%) obstructive apnea, 28(38.36%) arterial disease, 14(19.17%) Dia

Comparison of Sodium Concentration between Ham Dry Cured with NaCl and a KCl/NaCl Mixture: A Systematic Review: OAJBS Publishers

Comparison of Sodium Concentration between Ham Dry Cured with NaCl and a KCl/NaCl Mixture: A Systematic Review by Reinaldo Letelier in Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science Cured products are popular in developed countries; however, due to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, associated in part with higher sodium consumption in the human diet, it is convenient to explore alternative food preservation methods without altering the chemical properties of ham. Legs of pigs (corresponding to the pelvic member) from the same batch raised in an extensive production system were processed using the traditional method of cured ham. The left legs were cured using a treatment with NaCl (treatment A), while a mixture of NaCl / KCl (treatment B) was used for the right legs. Changes in weight, Na and K concentration, as well as pH were evaluated and compared at the end of the process. The inclusion of KCl produces a decrease in Na (p < 0.05) and an increase in K (p < 0.05). It was r

Anticoagulation in COVID-19 “Benefit Exists But we Need Trials”: A Systematic Review by Hugo Costa in Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science The pandemic we are facing has been devastating in some regions of the globe, not only because of the rapid spread, but also because of the unpredictability form of presentation and course of the disease. In fact, COVID-19 in its most severe form (SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia) and its systemic consequences have been described by several colleagues on the ground. The variety of multiorganic consequences, particularly cardiovascular, and the little expected response to therapeutic strategies as in the case of ventilation, makes us realize that knowledge about the virus is still scarce. https://biomedscis.com/fulltext/anticoagulation-in-covid-19-benefit-exists-but-we-need-trials.ID.000216.php To Know More About Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science Please Visit: Biomedscis Are Click On:   https://Biomedscis.Com/

Comparison of Tocilizumab and Convalescent Plasma Therapy for COVID-19: A Systematic Review: OAJBS Publishers

Comparison of Tocilizumab and Convalescent Plasma Therapy for COVID-19: A Systematic Review by Steffi Rose Mathew in Open Access Journal of Biomedical Science Background: The current pandemic referred to as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), has identified the causative respiratory pathogen as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). High viral load leads to cytokine storm (CS) and other symptoms that leads to severity, mortality and infectivity of patients. Methods: A review of databases PubMed and Google Scholar was conducted from May 25 to June 16, 2020. After exclusion of systematic reviews, studies on other treatment strategies, meta-analysis and articles not related to COVID-19 treatment, 21 clinical studies on COVID-19 infection of tocilizumab (TCZ) and convalescent plasma (CP) were identified and included. https://biomedscis.com/fulltext/comparison-of-tocilizumab-and-convalescent-plasma-therapy-for-covid-19-a-systematic-review.ID.000215.php To Know More
