Host haematological factors influencing the transmission of Plasmodium falciparum gametocytes to Anopheles gambiae s.s. mosquitoes. (1/592)

We investigated the relationship between selected host haematological and parasitological parameters and the density and infectivity of Plasmodium falciparum gametocytes. 143 individuals (age range 1-62 years) attending an outpatient clinic in Farafenni, The Gambia, who had peripheral blood gametocytaemia were recruited (mean gametocyte density 123.7/microl, range 5-17,000/microl). Of the parameters measured, packed cell volume (PCV), reticulocyte count (RetC) and lymphocyte count (LyC) were significantly associated with gametocyte density (r = - 0.17, P < 0.05; r = 0.21, P < 0.01; r = 0.18, P < 0.05, respectively). Data from membrane feeding experiments in which 15 or more mosquitoes were dissected showed that 60.7% (53/87) of gametocyte carriers infected one or more mosquitoes. Gametocyte density was strongly correlated with transmission success (TS) (r = 0.3, P < 0.005) and, in successful infections, with both mosquito prevalence (MP) (r = 0.36, P < 0.005) and mean oocyst burden (MOB) (r = 0.65, P < 0.0001). None of the other factors measured were significantly associated with any of these indices in bivariate analysis. Regression modelling showed that both gametocyte density and PCV were positively associated with gametocyte carrier infectivity to mosquitoes (LRchi2 = 100.7 and 47.2, respectively) and, in successful infections, with MOB (beta = 0.16, t = 4.9, P < 0.001; beta = 0.02, t = 2.3, P < 0.05, respectively). The positive association with PCV suggests that blood meal quality influences infection probably as a nutritional requirement, however, as this effect was most apparent at high gametocyte densities, its epidemiological significance is questionable. Though the haematological parameters associated with gametocyte density are a direct consequence of asexual infection, they may also represent an adaptive mechanism for optimization of sexual stage development.  (+info)

Urinary tract toxicity in rats following administration of beta 3-adrenoceptor agonists. (2/592)

ZD7114, [(S)-4-[2-(2-hydroxy-3 phenoxypropylamine)ethoxy]-N-(2-methoxyethyl) phenoxyacetamide], and ZD2079, [(R)-N-(2-[4- (carboxymethyl)phenoxy]ethyl)-N-(beta-hydroxyphenethyl)ammonium chloride], are beta 3-adrenoceptor stimulants with selectivity for brown adipose tissue. ZD7144 is the hydrochloride salt of the S-enantiomer of the racemic amide ZD2079. They were developed as potential novel treatments for obesity and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Male and female rats were dosed separately by gavage for a minimum of 28 days with 0, 10, 50, and 500 mg/kg/day of ZD7114 or with 0, 10, 30, and 150 mg/kg/day of ZD2079. Two further groups of male and female rats were dosed with 0 and 500 mg/kg/day of ZD7114 for 28 days and were then allowed a 6-wk, undosed withdrawal period. At high doses, both compounds caused urinary tract toxicity, which primarily affected the distal tubules and collecting ducts of the kidney via tubular necrosis. They also caused ureteric inflammation, cystitis, and accumulation of crystalline inclusions throughout the urinary tract. As a result of urinary tract toxicity, affected animals from one or both studies showed reduced red blood cell indices, lower platelet counts, and higher white cell counts. Blood chemistry revealed lower plasma concentrations of glucose (7.28 +/- 1.37 compared to 8.11 +/- 0.65 for the control) and total protein (63.42 +/- 3.65 compared to 69.17 +/- 3.24 for the control) and increased plasma urea (37.15 +/- 19.96 compared to 8.09 +/- 0.87 for the control). Urinalysis showed an increase in the number of crystals, blood, and protein. In the urinary tract, the severe crystalluria with accumulation of crystalline material indicated that this may have a role in the etiology of the target organ toxicity. Poor solubility of the compounds at normal urinary pH was considered a possible mechanism for the crystalluria.  (+info)

Effects of carbon dioxide inhalation on hematology, coagulation, and serum clinical chemistry values in rats. (3/592)

Blood samples from adult male and female Charles River Crl:CD (SD) BR rats were collected at weekly intervals for 4 wk to evaluate the effects of inhalation of an anesthetic dose of carbon dioxide (CO2) or of a carbon dioxide-oxygen mixture (CO2/O2) on hematology, coagulation, and serum biochemistry values. During the first 3 wk of the study, rats were assigned to 1 of 3 groups and were bled from the orbital sinus once weekly. Prior to the blood collection, rats in group 1 were exposed to room air only, rats in group 2 received CO2/O2 (approximately 66%:34% CO2:O2) by inhalation, and rats in group 3 received 100% CO2 by inhalation. In the rats exposed to CO2/O2 or CO2, leukocyte counts, lymphocyte counts, and glucose values were higher, and aspartate aminotransferase, creatine kinase, and calcium values were lower compared with those of rats exposed to room air only. Rats exposed to 100% CO2 had slightly (but statistically significant) lower mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration when compared with rats exposed only to room air. During week 4, all rats were reassigned to 1 of 2 groups and were bled terminally via closed cardiac puncture following exposure to either CO2/O2 or CO2. Increased lymphocyte counts (males only) and glucose and chloride concentrations were noted for rats exposed to CO2/O2 compared with those exposed to CO2. These alterations reiterate the importance of comparing clinical pathology values to those of concurrent control groups that have experienced blood collection under identical conditions in order to avoid potential errors in the interpretation of data.  (+info)

Immunohematological reference ranges for adult Ethiopians. (4/592)

A cross-sectional survey was carried out with 485 healthy working adult Ethiopians who are participating in a cohort study on the progression of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection to establish hematological reference ranges for adult HIV-negative Ethiopians. In addition, enumeration of absolute numbers and percentages of leukocyte subsets was performed for 142 randomly selected HIV-negative individuals. Immunological results were compared to those of 1,356 healthy HIV-negative Dutch blood donor controls. Immunohematological mean values, medians, and 95th percentile reference ranges were established. Mean values were as follows: leukocyte (WBC) counts, 6.1 x 10(9)/liter (both genders); erythrocyte counts, 5.1 x 10(12)/liter (males) and 4.5 x 10(12)/liter (females); hemoglobin, 16.1 (male) and 14.3 (female) g/dl; hematocrit, 48.3% (male) and 42.0% (female); platelets, 205 x 10(9)/liter (both genders); monocytes, 343/microl; granulocytes, 3, 057/microl; lymphocytes, 1,857/microl; CD4 T cells, 775/microl; CD8 T cells, 747/microl; CD4/CD8 T-cell ratio, 1.2; T cells, 1, 555/microl; B cells, 191/microl; and NK cells, 250/microl. The major conclusions follow. (i) The WBC and platelet values of healthy HIV-negative Ethiopians are lower than the adopted reference values of Ethiopia. (ii) The absolute CD4 T-cell counts of healthy HIV-negative Ethiopians are considerably lower than those of the Dutch controls, while the opposite is true for the absolute CD8 T-cell counts. This results in a significantly reduced CD4/CD8 T-cell ratio for healthy Ethiopians, compared to the ratio for Dutch controls.  (+info)

Effect of dietary alpha-linolenic acid on thrombotic risk factors in vegetarian men. (5/592)

BACKGROUND: Vegetarians have lower platelet and plasma concentrations of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) than do omnivores. We recently showed that male vegetarians have higher platelet aggregability than do omnivores. OBJECTIVE: We investigated whether male vegetarians (n = 17) who consumed an increased amount of dietary alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) showed any changes in their tissue profile of PUFAs, plasma thromboxane concentrations, platelet aggregability, or hemostatic factors. DESIGN: During the study, all subjects maintained their habitual vegetarian diets except that a proportion of dietary fat was replaced with vegetable oils and margarines that were provided. Initially, all subjects consumed a low-ALA diet (containing safflower oil and safflower oil-based margarine) for 14 d; they then consumed either a moderate-ALA diet (containing canola oil and canola oil-based margarine) or a high-ALA diet (containing linseed oil and linseed oil-based margarine) for 28 d. Blood samples were collected at day 0 (baseline), day 14, and day 42. RESULTS: Eicosapentaenoic acid, docosapentaenoic acid, total n-3 PUFAs, and the ratio of n-3 to n-6 PUFAs were significantly increased (P < 0.05), whereas the ratio of arachidonic acid to eicosapentaenoic acid was decreased (P < 0.05), in platelet phospholipids, plasma phospholipids, and triacylglycerols after either the moderate-ALA or high-ALA diet compared with the low-ALA diet. No significant differences were observed in thrombotic risk factors. CONCLUSION: ALA from vegetable oils (canola and linseed) has a beneficial effect on n-3 PUFA concentrations of platelet phospholipids and plasma lipids in vegetarian males.  (+info)

Effects of long-term intake of retinol on selected clinical and laboratory indexes. (6/592)

BACKGROUND: Chemopreventive agents developed to be used in a moderate-risk but otherwise healthy population need to be both efficacious and to have minimal adverse effects. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the adverse effects of long-term retinol intake in a skin cancer chemoprevention trial in a large population at moderate risk for skin cancer. DESIGN: Participants (n = 2297) were randomly assigned to receive retinol [7576 retinol equivalents (RE), or 25000 IU] or a placebo daily. The adverse effects of retinol intake were studied by monitoring 14 clinical symptoms and laboratory indexes. The median follow-up time was 3.8 y. RESULTS: No adverse effects concerning the 14 symptoms were observed. Significant differences in alkaline phosphatase (P < 0.0001), triacylglycerol (P < 0.0001), cholesterol (P = 0.04), and HDL (P = 0.01) were observed over time between the 2 groups. After 49 mo of follow-up, alkaline phosphatase was 7% higher, triacylglycerol was 11% higher, cholesterol was 3% higher, and HDL was 1% lower in the retinol group than in the placebo group. CONCLUSIONS: Because a 1% increase in cholesterol concentrations has been reported to be associated with a 2% increase in coronary artery disease risk, long-term ingestion of 7576 RE vitamin A/d should be considered with caution. However, further studies are needed to confirm this finding.  (+info)

Chronic inhalation carcinogenicity study of commercial hexane solvent in F-344 rats and B6C3F1 mice. (7/592)

The carcinogenic and chronic toxicity potential of commercial hexane solvent was evaluated in F-344 rats and B6C3F1 mice (50/sex/concentration/species) exposed by inhalation for 6 h/day, 5 days/week for 2 years. Target hexane vapor concentrations were 0, 900, 3000, and 9000 ppm. There were no significant differences in survivorship between control and hexane-exposed groups, and clinical observations were generally unremarkable. Small, but statistically significant decreases in body weight gain were seen in rats of both sexes in the mid- and high-exposure groups and in high-expsoure female mice. The only noteworthy histopathological finding in rats was epithelial cell hyperplasia in the nasoturbinates and larynx of exposed groups. This response was judged to be indicative of upper respiratory tract tissue irritation. No significant differences in tumor incidence between control and hexane-exposed rats were found. In mice, uterine tissue from the high-exposure females exhibited a significant decrease in the severity of cystic endometrial hyperplasia compared to controls. An increase in the combined incidence of hepatocellular adenomas and carcinomas was observed in high-exposure female mice. The incidence of liver tumors was not increased in the mid- or low-exposure female mice or in male mice exposed to hexane. An increased incidence of pituitary adenomas was observed in female, but not male mice. This finding was not believed to have been treatment-related because the incidence in the control group was unusually low, and the incidence in exposed groups was not dose-related and was within the historical control range. No other neoplastic changes judged to be treatment-related were observed in tissues from male or female mice. In conclusion, chronic exposure to commercial hexane solvent at concentrations up to 9000 ppm was not carcinogenic to F-344 rats or to male B6C3F1 mice, but did result in an increased incidence of liver tumors in female mice.  (+info)

Retrospective analysis of the frequency and recognition of adverse drug reactions by means of automatically recorded laboratory signals. (8/592)

AIMS: To estimate the frequency of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) identified through the use of automatic signals generated from laboratory data (ALS) in hospitalised patients. To determine the frequency of spontaneous recognition of these ADRs by the attending physicians and to assess the potential value of ALS for detection of ADRs. METHODS: Laboratory results of patients hospitalised in a nine bed medical ward were automatically recorded over a period of 17 months. Values exceeding defined boundaries were used as ALS. Charts of every third patient were analysed retrospectively with regard to adverse drug related reactions and causality was evaluated as well as whether the ADR had been recognised during the period of hospitalisation. RESULTS: The charts and ALS of 98 patients were analysed. In 18 cases a drug-related adverse reaction was probable. Awareness to the reaction by the treating physicians was evident in 6 out of these 18 ADRs. Approximately 80% of the ADRs were considered predictable. Three ADRs were regarded as serious. CONCLUSIONS: Adverse drug reactions are common and often preventable. Only one third of ADRs which could have been detected through ALS were recognised by the attending physicians. An increased doctor's awareness of the frequency of drug related abnormal laboratory results by means of ALS is likely to increase the recognition rate of ADRs and might help to prevent them.  (+info)

MONDAY, Dec. 23, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- If your child is obese, new research suggests that those extra pounds can alter the results of routine blood tests.. We performed the first comprehensive analysis of the effect of obesity on routine blood tests in a large community population of children and found that almost 70% of the blood tests studied were affected, said study first author Victoria Higgins, from the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and the University of Toronto.. Higgins team looked at more than 1,300 healthy children and teens in and around Toronto and found that obesity affected 24 routine blood tests, including those for liver function, inflammation markers, lipids and iron.. The study was published Dec. 17 in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.. As clinical decisions are often guided by normative ranges based on a large healthy population, understanding how and which routine blood tests are affected by obesity is important to correctly interpret blood ...

A 30 year old man presented to the emergency department with a four to five day history of a painful disfiguring rash (fig 1⇓). It started around his mouth but later spread to the rest of his face, as well as his neck and shoulders. He had a history of mild atopic dermatitis, but he had been otherwise well apart from a cold sore before the rash appeared. He was not taking any regular drugs, had no allergies, and had not treated the rash with any topical drugs. He was systemically well and the only abnormalities seen on routine blood tests were mild lymphopenia (0.8×109/L, reference range 1-4) with raised C reactive protein 64 mg/L (,0.6;1 mg/L=9.5 nmol/L). HIV testing was negative. ...

I had an Acute Miocardial Infarction on the 12th... The following day I had my routine blood tests done (since Ive been lowering my numbers for a year by a dramatically changed diet and exercise; no wheat, no soy if I can help it, very little refined carbs--limited to maximally 6 teaspoons of sugar per day in 2 cups of coffee, no rice, no white potatos, no corn--an extremely occasional corn tortilla, no industrial vegetable oils), which revealed (due to AST and LDH) that I had just had a heart attack. The following day (the 14th) I was recommended to an interventionist cardiologist who varified that I had indeed had the AMI and suggested an angiogram and an angioplasty... It turns out that the heart attack was more minor than he had thought (it was in the smallest of the coronary arteries, that he claim was too late to fix; it had died at least 36 hours earlier) but that the two other coronary arteries were greatly blocked and he recommended installing one medicated stent and another normal ...
Routine blood tests may be ready hours after the sample is taken. Routine biopsy results may be ready as soon as 1 or 2 days after they are taken. Scan results may take a few days or weeks to come back. Blood samples are tested in a laboratory. Sometimes biopsy samples may need to be sent to a special laboratory. There they will be processed and interpreted by pathologists. Scans are reviewed by a radiologist. Then a report is made available to your doctor and GP. This all takes additional time, however there is a lot happening whilst you are waiting.. Sometimes these results are then reviewed again at a meeting where several different people from the medical team review these results. This is called a multidisciplinary team meeting (MDT). When all the information is available your doctor will arrange to discuss these with you ...

Hello doctor, I have a special child adhd girl aged 19 years, 2.5 years ago, my child suddenly stopped menstruating and slowly his body began to thin. His hair fell out. Three days ago, on the 24th of July, I took his father to the internist ministry, when he saw my son, he suggested to have his blood checked. Presumably he has a problem with the thyroid. I took it to check his blood yesterday with difficulty because his son rebelled and refused, and the result today is FT3 = 1.82, FT4 = 1.04, TSHs = 2.602, It seems that the FT3 results are not normal.

Patients with a Centor score of 0 or 1 (1 point each for history of fever, absence of cough, tender anterior cervical lymphadenopathy, and tonsillar exudates) are unlikely to have group A streptococcus; therefore, further testing is not useful. For patients with a Centor score of 2 or greater, widely available rapid antigen-detection tests identify patients with a high enough probability of group A streptococcus to justify antibiotic treatment. The antibiotic of choice for adults with group A streptococcal pharyngitis is penicillin, which is inexpensive and well-tolerated and to which group A streptococcus is universally susceptible ...

Abstract:. Background: Jamaican cherry (Muntingia calabura L.) fruits contain potential immunomodulatory agents such as phenolic and flavonoid compounds. However, previous research was limited only to the effect of Jamaican cherry fruits on non-specific immune response namely the phagocytic index. Objective: This study aims to determine the immunomodulatory activity of Jamaican cherry fruits against specific immune response by measuring the antibody formation named immunoglobulin G (IgG). In addition, the hematological profile of the animals induced by hepatitis B vaccine was also evaluated. Materials and methods: forty male mice were grouped into 8 groups consist of control, treatment, and standard groups. Control group was given CMC-Na 0.5%, six treatment groups were each given either the methanol extract of Jamaican cherry fruits (MEJF), or ethyl acetate fraction of Jamaican cherry fruits (EAJFJ) with the doses of 50, 100, and 200 mg/kg BW (each dose for one group), and levamisole was given ...

These results indicate that a 24‑hour feed deprivation was a stressor for bulls only. Pires et al. (2007) found that a 24‑hour fasting period altered white blood cell population and red blood cell parameters, and decreased plasma glucose in broilers, but did not report differences between sex groups (female and male). Small decreases in plasma glucose were observed in lactating cows after 8‑hour fasting (Chelikani et al., 2004) and in steers after 18 or 32 hours of deprivation (Galyean et al., 1981). Conversely, Earley et al. (2006) reported that an 8‑hour food fasting period did not alter plasma glucose, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, white blood cell numbers, lymphocyte percentage, red blood cell count, and hematocrit in young bulls.. According to Galyean et al. (1981), although plasma glucose was depressed in fasting cattle, hyperglycemia was observed in steers subjected to deprivation and transport concomitantly, indicating that fasting itself causes a lower degree of ...

In Russia, the ESR is determined by Panchenkova.Taken from the ring finger the blood is diluted with sodium acetate (4: 1) and placed in a special capillary.An hour later, the level of fixed erythrocyte sedimentation on a 100-point scale.. However, in the international method of medicine used for venous studies Westergren.Their difference is the use of tubes of different characteristics and the results of the scale.Westergren method is considered to be more sensitive: showing the same performance at a normal level, the study of this method gives higher values ​​at higher rates.. Now in many clinics use an automatic method for determining the erythrocyte sedimentation rate.This eliminates the human factor that can influence the outcome: no need for dilution of the blood sample and the observance of proportions, as well as eliminating the need to track results and time control.. In developed countries, the definition of SOE do not give such a big deal because of frequent false indicators of ...

A 35-day experiment was carried out in a completely randomized design to determine the efficacy of two phytogenic feed additives as veritable alternatives to antibiotics using 320 day-old unsexed commercial Ross 308 broiler chicks. The chicks were randomly divided into four groups of 80 birds each and assigned to four isocaloric (12.60, 13.2 and 13.4 MJ/Kg AMEn) and isonitrogenous (25.0, 22.5 and 20.07 % CP levels) diets designated as follows: diet 1- maize-soybean based diet without additives (negative control), diet 2- maize-soybean based diet containing 10% tylosin (positive control), diet 3-maize-soybean based diet containing phytonutrient (product 1) and diet 4-maize-soybean based diet containing phytonutrient (product 2). Diet 2 contained 200g/ton of antibiotics, while diets 3 and 4 contained 1L/ton each of phytogenic feed additives. Each treatment was replicated 8 times with 10 birds per replicate. Birds had adlib access to feed and water. At 35th day of the experiment, 8 birds per ...

The blood sample required for testing remains the same i.e. EDTA (purple-topped).. The minimum volume required for testing will be 1ml.. There will be no change to the reference range or reporting units.. There will be no change to the ordering or reporting of tests.. Comparability between the old and new methods is extremely close for values up to approximately 60 mm/h. There may be slightly more variation for values between 60 and 120 mm/h.. It is advised that serially monitored results are carefully correlated clinically during the transition. It may be necessary to establish an updated trend using results from the new method, particularly for values over 60 mm/h.. Due to the differing technology, the sensitivity and specificity of the new method for various disease states may be different from the standard Westergren method. This could lead to significantly different results in a small minority of patients.. For further technical information or clinical advice please contact: Haematology ...

Objective Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is characterised by left ventricular dilation and dysfunction not caused by coronary disease, valvular disease or hypertension. Owing to the considerable aetiological and prognostic heterogeneity in DCM, an extensive diagnostic work-up is recommended. We aimed to assess the value of diagnostic testing beyond careful physical examination, blood tests, echocardiography and coronary angiography. Methods From October 2008 to November 2012, we prospectively recruited 102 patients referred to our tertiary care hospital with a diagnosis of idiopathic DCM based on patient history, physical examination, routine blood tests, echocardiography and coronary angiography. Extended work-up included cardiac MRI, exercise testing, right-sided catheterisation with biopsies, 24 h ECG and genetic testing. Results In 15 patients (15%), a diagnosis other than idiopathic DCM was made based on additional tests. In 10 patients (10%), a possibly disease-causing mutation was ...
Background. C who was aged 46 - 48 at the time of the alleged negligence, had a history of hypertension for which he had been prescribed Bendroflumethiazide and Atenolol in November 2004. The Defendants in this case were all GPs at the surgery that C attended.. On 10/01/2006 C saw D1 and informed him that he had stopped taking his medication as he thought it was causing erectile dysfunction. He was then prescribed Olmesartan. C had blood tests in January 2006 revealing normal renal function.. Routine blood tests in February 2007 showed a raised creatinine level of 157 and a reduced eGFR of 43. Normal levels should be up to 110 and in excess of 100. C should have been referred for renal investigation but no action was taken by the GP surgery. Following an attendance at hospital for pain in his leg in September 2007 C was found to have a raised creatinine level of 179 and an eGFR of 37. A letter was sent by the hospital to the GP surgery advising of Cs renal problems and advising that ...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) means that your kidneys are diseased or damaged in some way, or are ageing and not working as well as they once did. Severity can vary but most cases are mild or moderate, often occur in older people, do not cause symptoms and generally do not progress to kidney failure. Although about half of people aged 75 or more have some degree of CKD, most of these people do not actually have diseases of their kidneys; they have normal ageing of their kidneys. People with any stage of CKD have an increased risk of developing heart disease or a stroke. It is important to detect even mild CKD, as treatment may not only slow down the progression of the disease, but also reduce the risk of developing heart disease or stroke.(1) A routine blood test is commonly done to detect kidney disease and monitor people with conditions that can affect the kidneys, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. ...
Most of you who attended the 2010 Annual Gala Dinner would have been introduced to the lovely Vanessa Picinini.

Vanessa is now twenty-three and during the intervening three years she has been routinely subjected to regular tests, scans, x-rays, biopsies and other small procedures. Still the Leukemia has continued to progress. Her immune system is now so compromised that she is affected by the smallest of infections resulting in her having to reduce her hours ...
