Management of Open Wounds

Management of Open Wounds

The physician has a vital role in the wound assessment and also to delineate treatment objective at any point of time.  The main objective of wound healing is to remove the non-viable tissue material by various methods for the exposure of healthy well-perfused tissue for proliferation and migration in the wound bed. Below mentioned are the recent management strategies for open wound. Hydrogel Dressings Hydrogels are generally made up of complex hydrophilic polymers with maximum water content

Journals Offering Fee Waivers for Articles Related to COVID-19

Introduction The virus spreading COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus. Not much has been known about the virus. Any accurate and authentic information about coronavirus and the related disease is of vital importance to the researchers. This information will help the researchers to tackle this pandemic more effectively. Articles published in journals are a great source of information on this new pandemic. Many journals have either reduced or have completely waived off the publication charges. Journa

New Spray Drying technique enhance the Solubility of therapeutic Drugs

New Spray Drying Technique Enhance The Solubility of Therapeutic Drugs

Fraunhofer  researchers adapted the technique of spray drying, one used for producing instant coffee and powdered milk, for incorporating insoluble substances in core-shell particles and refining the encapsulation process of therapeutic drugs. Encapsulation is a technique used in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals to protect the active ingredients of the drug from the influence of gastric acid and to control their release into the body. Thus, the medication is delivered gradually rather than all

Digital Sensors for Digestive Tract monitoring

Rhythmic Contractions of the Digestive Tract Can Now Be Measured with Flexible Sensors

Researchers at MIT and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have built a flexible sensor that adheres to the lining of the stomach or intestine and measures the rhythmic contractions of the digestive tract. Such sensors can help doctors to diagnose digestive disorders that impair the motility of the digestive tract. Further, they can be used to measure the food intake in patients treated for obesity. These flexible sensors are based on piezoelectric materials, which generate a current and voltag

Gastric Acid Restraint Drug affects the liver

Regular Gastric acid reflux Drugs Develop the Chronic Liver Disease

A study at University of California San Diego School of Medicine claims that suppression of stomach (gastric) acid by drugs alters specific gut bacteria, promoting liver injury and progression of three types of chronic liver disease. Nearly 10% people use proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drug to relieve the symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux; this percentage being seven times higher for those suffering from a chronic liver disease. The number of people suffering from chronic liver disease is

Hypertension in Midlife of woman may leads to dementia

High Blood Pressure in Their 40s May Risk Women to Develop Dementia Later

Women who develop high blood pressure in their 40s may be more likely to develop dementia in later life, according to the study published in Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. “High blood pressure in midlife is a known risk for dementia in later life, but this study will help to understand how and when this association starts and its gender differences,” said the study author Rachel A. Whitmer, PhD, Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, Cal

New Device to Treat Sleep Apnoea

FDA Approves New Treatment for Moderate to Severe Central Sleep Apnoea

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, today approved a new treatment, the Remede System for moderate to severe central sleep apnoea. It is a battery operated device that is surgically implanted in the chest to stimulate the phrenic nerve, which in turn sends signals to the diaphragm and restores normal breathing in such patients. Sleep apnoea is a disorder that causes one or more pauses in breathing lasting from few seconds t

Seaweed Extract helps to treat arthritis

Novel Molecule from Algae Extract Shows a Promising Effect in Arthritis

It is known that people who are aged over 65 are suffering from joint pains and stiffness due to inflammation at bone joints called arthritis. This inflammation, resultant of oxidative stress (frequent cause of damage and cell death), can spread to all other joints in the body and degenerates the protective cartilage layer, a connective tissue at joints which protects bones from eruption due to friction. Affected joints, particularly knee, hip, and finger joints can be extremely painful and gets

Chronic Tinnitus alters brain network

Chronic Tinnitus is Coupled with Definite Transform in Brain Networks

Tinnitus is characterized by a chronic abnormal noise (ringing or buzzing) experienced in one or both of the ears which can be unpleasant, frustrating and sometimes it is severe enough to seek treatment. Fatima Husain, professor at University of Illinois says that, tinnitus is invisible and there is no device to measure the severity which varies from patient to patient in terms of type of sound and duration. Observations from functional MRI reveals various neural patterns saying that chronic
