Herbal Research. Herbal medicine or Herbalism refers to using a plants seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. It may also be a traditional medicinal or folk medicine practice based on the use of plants and plant extracts. Herbalism is also known as botanical medicine, medical herbalism, herbology and phytotherapy or phytomedicine.. The scope of herbal medicine is sometimes extended to include fungal and bee products, as well as minerals, shells and certain animal parts. Despite the increased popularity of herbal treatments, the safety and effectiveness of alternative medicines have not been scientifically corroborated and remain largely unknown. Adulteration, inappropriate formulation, or lack of understanding of plant and drug interactions may lead to adverse reactions that can be sometimes life threatening or lethal. It is becoming more main stream as improvements in analysis and quality control along with advances in clinical research show the value of herbal ...
Increasingly, clinical research is funded, or jointly funded, under contract with outside sponsors such as pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies, other agencies, or government.1 The provisions of such contracts, sometimes referred to as clinical study agreements (CSAs), can have profound effects both on the protection of human subjects and the independence of investigators to conduct research with scientific integrity. Despite the key role of CSAs in structuring ethically important aspects of research, they remain largely unregulated and unreviewed for adherence to ethical standards.. In a recent study at Duke University, Schulman and colleagues surveyed 108 US medical schools engaged in clinical research focusing on their agreements with industry sponsors of multicentre trials.2 They found that these institutions rarely imposed requirements ensuring the investigators independence in the design, collection, analysis, or interpretation of data. They also found few provisions ensuring either ...

In India, very few reports on the cost of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are available. There is a need to study this aspect of health care in order to understand the economic burden imposed by ADRs. The aim of the current work was to study the costs associated with documented ADRs in a tertiary care teaching hospital. This study was conducted in medical wards of a south Indian tertiary care teaching hospital over a 6-month period. The study protocol was assessed and approved by the institutional ethics committee. A total of 317 ADRs from 246 patients were identified during the study period. The present study used an intensive monitoring method to detect ADRs and assessed an incidence of 32.7% adverse reactions in the monitored group. The causality, severity, predictability, and preventability of the documented ADRs were assessed. The total cost to the hospital due to ADRs was found to be Rs. 1,567,397 (US$36 451). The average cost per patient hospitalized with an ADR was Rs. 4,945 (US$115). The ...

With institutional ethics committee approval, all patients scheduled for primary isolated elective CABG at North West Armed Forces Hospital, Tabuk, Saudi Arabia, during the period from March 2004 to November 2005, were scrutinized for eligibility enrolment. Our exclusions criteria included patients who had combined procedure; redo surgery, bleeding diathesis (Haemophilia or platelet count , 100 × 109 L-1), renal failure (Creatinine , 160 mg/dl), known allergy to TA, recent (,7 days before surgery) intake of anti-platelets (e.g. Aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) or Heparin administration within 48 hours of operation.. Thirty eight patients met the requirements for inclusion, and informed consent was obtained from all of them. The patients were randomly allocated into one of the two groups. Group I (TA group) included 19 patients who received 1 gm of TA diluted in 100 ml normal saline. Group II (Placebo group) included 19 patients who received 100 ml normal saline as placebo. The ...
We included untreated patients with a definitive diagnosis of NCC according to the diagnostic criteria developed by Del Brutto et al.12 Patients between 18 and 70 years of age were consecutively recruited over a one year period from the clinical services of the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery at Mexico City (including outpatients and hospitalised patients from the neurology and psychiatry wards) after obtaining informed consent from the patients or their relatives. The institutional ethics committee revised and approved the protocol. Patients with other relevant neurological or medical conditions, as well as substance abusers, were excluded from the study.. We used the Mini-mental State Examination (MMSE)13 and the Neurobehavioral Cognitive Status Examination (COGNISTAT), a well validated test previously used in patients with neurological disorders to assess all the patients.14,15 Both tests were performed only if the patient was not in a postictal period. We also used the ...
We clinically phenotyped 282 patients of the previously reported study,1 with the assessors blinded to the previously reported HLA typing results. All patients belonged to the relatively homogeneous Irish population and had Irish parents. Their ethnic homogeneity and lack of cryptic relatedness were confirmed by single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis in 260 of the cases (J. Bowes, University of Manchester, personal communication). All were previously genotyped for HLA-B and HLA-C alleles to at least four digits using sequence-based HLA typing as described.1 All fulfilled CASPAR criteria.11 The cohort consisted of subjects referred to a rheumatology department to confirm musculoskeletal disease.1 The cohort follow-up was a median of 19 years from the initial symptoms of PsA.. The study was approved by the institutional ethics committee, and following written informed consent, patients underwent a detailed assessment, including recording the number of tender and swollen joints using the 68 ...
Approval was granted by the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Institutional Ethics committee to conduct this retrospective study. Criteria for inclusion of patient data in the study included a pathological confirmation of NSCLC and treatment with concurrent chemotherapy and radical or high dose palliative radiotherapy at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre (East Melbourne campus). Exclusion criteria included previous thoracic RT, inconsistent radiation dose per fraction and hyper-fractionated radiation schedules. We also excluded patients with RT treatment interruptions ≥ 5 days, as mucosal recovery during the break may have confounded interpretation of the relationship between the oesophageal dose volume metrics and grade of oesophagitis.. Patient characteristics, treatment and toxicity data were extracted from paper and electronic medical records. Clinical data included the use of nasogastric (NG) or percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube, systemic steroids, proton pump inhibitors (PPI) ...
BackgroundThe incidence of difficult intubation in patients undergoing general anaesthesia is estimated to be approximately 1-18% whereas that of failure to intubate is 0.05-0.35%.1,2,3 Various methods have been used for prediction of difficult laryngoscopy. Although, upper lip bite has been shown to be a promising test in its introductory article, repeated validation in various populations is required for any test to be accepted as a routine test. We have compared upper lip bite test (ULBT), modified Mallampati test (MMC) and thyromental distance (TMD) individually and in various combinations to verify which of these predictor tests are significantly associated with difficult glottic exposure.MethodsAfter obtaining institutional ethics committee approval, 402 ASA I and II adult patients undergoing elective surgical procedures requiring endotracheal intubation were included. All the three test were performed in all the patients preoperatively and their glottic exposure was recorded by ...
Purpose : Glaucomatous optic neuropathy results in progressive irreversible vision loss. The role of immune imbalance in mediating optic nerve degeneration is less understood. We investigated the types of infiltrating immune cells and soluble factors in aqueous humour (AH) and their relationship with disease severity in patients with primary glaucoma (GL). Methods : AH was collected from GL and cataract (control) patients during surgical intervention without deviating from standard of care, following written, informed consent and prior approval by the institutional ethics committee. GL patients were grouped based on disease severity (Visual Field Index score and vertical cup to disc ratio - vCDR). Cells from AH (ctrl n=9, GL n=15) were phenotyped using fluorochrome conjugated antibodies specific for leukocytes (CD45), T cells (CD3), B cells (CD19), neutrophils (CD66b), monocytes (CD14), Natural Killer cells (NK; CD56) and NKT cells (CD3+ CD56+) by flow cytometry. Soluble factors in AH (ctrl ...
Purpose: To perform a large-scale systematic comparison of the accuracy of all commonly used perfusion computed tomography (CT) data postprocessing methods in the definition of infarct core and penumbra in acute stroke. Materials and Methods: The collection of data for this study was approved by the institutional ethics committee, and all patients gave informed consent. Three hundred fourteen patients with hemispheric ischemia underwent perfusion CT within 6 hours of stroke symptom onset and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging at 24 hours. CT perfusion maps were generated by using six different postprocessing methods. Pixel-based analysis was used to calculate sensitivity and specificity of different perfusion CT thresholds for the penumbra and infarct core with each postprocessing method, and receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curves were plotted. Area under the ROC curve (AUC) analysis was used to define the optimum threshold. Results: Delay-corrected singular value deconvolution (SVD) with a ...

The likelihood of a tumor recurrence in patients with T3-4N0-1 non-small cell lung cancer following multimodality treatment remains substantial, mainly due distant metastases. As pathological complete responses (pCR) in resected specimens are seen in only a minority (28-38%) of patients following chemoradiotherapy, we designed the INCREASE trial (EudraCT-Number: 2019-003454-83; Netherlands Trial Register number: NL8435) to assess if pCR rates could be further improved by adding short course immunotherapy to induction chemoradiotherapy. Translational studies will correlate changes in loco-regional and systemic immune status with patterns of recurrence. This single-arm, prospective phase II trial will enroll 29 patients with either resectable, or borderline resectable, T3-4N0-1 NSCLC. The protocol was approved by the institutional ethics committee. Study enrollment commenced in February 2020. On day 1 of guideline-recommended concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CRT), ipilimumab (IPI, 1 mg/kg IV) and nivolumab

Background and Aim: Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) enables complete, collective removal of gastrointestinal (GI) malignant tumors, but requires a long operation time. Air insufflated during ESD is distributed throughout the entire GI tract, and thus causes an enlarged feeling of the abdomen. We aimed to reduce the incidence of an enlarged feeling of the abdomen by wedging a balloon in the bulbus duodeni to reduce air flow into the lower parts of the GI tract.. Methods: Sixteen patients who were approved by the institutional ethics committee and provided consent to participate in this single-center, prospective study were divided into two groups using a sealed-envelope randomization method: ESD with a balloon wedged in the bulbus duodeni (the balloon [+] group) or conventional ESD with no balloon (the balloon [−] group). Total air volume in the entire GI tract and its change before and after ESD were measured objectively by 3-D computed tomography.. Results: In the balloon (+) group, ...
Methods: After taking institutional ethics committee approval, total n= 62 (33, 29) patients were enrolled. Patients were randomized and divided into two study groups (1-olopatadine, 2-epinastine). After prescribing the drug therapy (day 1), patients were asked to visit at 3,7,15 day and at 1month. At every visit, slit lamp examination was done. Changes in all sign/symptoms were recorded. For the statistical testing of the data Chi-square test is used to find the association of variable. Mann Whitney -u test is applied for the statistically analysing the two group ...
This study was approved by the Institutional Ethics Review Board of Chuncheon Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University Medical Center (CHUNCHEON 2014-01-003). This study investigated the RTW in patients without complications after lumbar discectomies. Thus, factors and complications that may adversely affect the surgical results were excluded. This study also focused on patients with regular jobs, so that we could document the RTW status. Surgical indications were for patients who were diagnosed with LDH on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and did not respond to conservative treatment for at least 6 weeks. All patients underwent surgery with one of three spinal surgeons at our institution. The operations were performed using microscopic discectomy techniques. The patients were discharged 3 days after surgery began outpatient follow-up 2 weeks after surgery ...
The study was a prospective non-randomized case series. Consecutive patients reporting to the hospital for cataract surgery without coexisting ocular or systemic co-morbidity and signing the informed consent form were included in the study that was cleared by the institutional ethics review board and followed the tenets of the Helsinki Declaration. The patients underwent routine pre and post-operative cataract evaluation and uneventful phacoemulsification using a standardized surgical technique. Incision location, size and architecture were standardized for all patients. Specific for this study was, pre-operative corneal biomechanics measured using a Scheimpflug device (CorVis ST) and Corneal Tomography (Pentacam; Oculus, Wetzlar, Germany) measured pre and 6 weeks post- operatively. The outcome measures of the study were surgically induced changes in corneal curvature, measured in terms of Coupling Ratio (CR) and Surgically Induced Astigmatism (SIA) calculated by vector analysis and its ...
Background: Lung contusion affects 17%-25% of adult blunt trauma patients, and is the leading cause of death from blunt thoracic injury. Statins are lipid-lowering drugs with recently suggested anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2) is a key enzyme in the production of prostaglandins (PG), and evidence suggests that COX-2 plays an important role in the pathogenesis of acute lung injury (ALI).. Aims: The current study aims at evaluating the beneficial effects of statins and COX-2 receptor inhibitors on ALI elicited by blunt trauma to the chest.. Methods: After approval by the institutional ethics and a scientific committee, and obtaining informed consent , patients admitted to the emergency department (ED) due to blunt trauma with a diagnosis of lung contusion will be enrolled in the study.The effects of statins and COX 2 inhibitors on ALI will be assessed by recording clinical parameters and measuring inflammatory mediators levels in the serum and in the ...

Selection of patients with congenital heart disease for surgical septation in biventricular repair or surgical palliation in functionally single ventricles requires low pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR). Where there is uncertainty, PVR can be assessed using hybrid cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) and fluoroscopic (X-Ray) guided cardiac catheterizations (XMR). CMR/XMR catheterization is a validated technique for accurate assessment of pulmonary vascular resistance. However, data concerning its application in clinical practice is lacking. PVR assessments were performed in 167 studies in 149 congenital heart disease patients by CMR/XMR catheterization. Data was collated on patient demographics, procedural data, complications and outcomes. Institutional ethics approval was obtained. Median age was 3.6 years (6 days - 67 years) and weight 13.8 kg (2.3 -122 kg). One hundred and eight studies were in biventricular circulations and 59 in functionally single ventricles. Median radiation dose was 0.72

What the nurses could do is explain that their techniques are unproved and unendorsed by the hospital (if this is the case; hospitals vary), offering patients, in effect, the sort of supplemental treatment available outside the hospital. But this approach is not without risk. A therapy provided in the hospital by its staff carries a sense of official approval, no matter what disclaimers are offered. [Cohen is right -- both the nurses as individuals and the hospital as an organizational entity have ethical obligations to the patient. The perspectives of both parties -- nurses and hospital -- must be presented to the patient.] In any case, these nurses must alert their colleagues and hospital administrators about such things. Both groups need to know how patients are being treated if they are to do their jobs well. [Cohen believes, correctly, that a well-functioning hospital can be a big tent. Patients can be offered science-based western care and tradition-based alternative eastern care if ...
In high school and middle school, the teacher is an adult dealing with a classroom with 15 - 30 youngsters. Student reactions, of course, are likely to vary, so theres no way to guage the potential impact on every student in advance. But the most challenging aspect is the school setting itself. Even if the patient-physician dyad occurs in an organizational setting like a clinic or group practice, its primarily a two person relationship. By contrast, English class is just one piece of the students relationship with the school. And in the background, the students families properly regard themselves as having a central role in their childs education ...
JOHN A. MASTROPIETRO, CHAIRMAN. The pro se claimant has petitioned for review from the May 22, 2001 Finding and Dismissal of the Commissioner acting for the Seventh District. She contends on appeal that the trier erred by refusing to reopen her stipulation pursuant to § 31-315 C.G.S. We find no error, and affirm the triers decision.. The trial commissioner found the following facts. The claimant sustained a compensable injury to her back on April 3, 1993, and subsequently received all benefits to which she was entitled under the Workers Compensation Act. On December 11, 1997, she entered into a stipulation settling her claim for $83,650.00. She had been represented by an attorney during the case, and she was canvassed by a commissioner before the stipulation was approved. The claimant is a college graduate who received a degree in anthropology. A Stipulation Questionnaire accompanied the stipulation, in which the claimants then-attorney pointed out differences in the medical opinions with ...

Cholinesterases belongs to class hydrolases.There are two types acetylcholinesterase and butyryl cholinesterase. Acetylcholinesterase present in nerve endings and also in the RBC membrane. It helps to maintain the shape and size of RBCs. Any change in shape and size of RBCs may affect the activity of Acetylcholinesterase. Thus this study aimed to estimate RBCs Acetylcholinesterase enzyme activity in various types of anemias and correlate the RBCs Acetylcholinesterase enzyme activity with various hematological indices such as Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR), Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH),Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC), Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV), Red cell Distribution Width (RDW) etc. After obtaining ethical approval from Institutional ethics committee total of 100 samples were collected from Clinical Biochemistry laboratory, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, Manipal University. 25 were having normal RBC indices, 12 with hemolytic anemia, 26 with microcytic anemia ...
The high turnover of nurses has become a global problem. Several studies have proposed that nurses perceptions of the ethical climate of their organization are related to higher job satisfaction and organizational commitment, and thus lead to lower turnover. However, there is limited empirical evidence supporting a relationship between different types of ethical climate within organizations and facets of job satisfaction. Furthermore, no published studies have investigated the impact of different types of ethical climate on the three components of organizational (...) commitment. This study attempts to explore the different types of ethical climate that exist in hospitals, and the degree of job satisfaction and organizational commitment of nurses in Taiwan. It uses path analysis to understand which types of ethical climate influence different facets of job satisfaction. The study also examines the impact of different types of ethical climate and facets of job satisfaction on the three ...
Organization justice refers to the extent to which employees perceive workplace procedure, interactions, and outcomes to be fair in nature. So, this study aimed to investigate the relationship between organizational justice and quality performance among health care workers. The study was conducted at the Public Hospital in Fayoum, Egypt. The study included a convenience sample of 100 healthcare workers (60 nurses and 40 physicians) that were recruited. Tools used for data collection included (1) questionnaire sheet which is used to measure health workers’ perception of organizational justices. It includes four types: distributive, procedural, interpersonal, and informational justice. (2) Quality performance questionnaire sheet: this tool was used to examine health workers’ perception regarding their quality performance. It contained three types: information, value, and skill. The results revealed that a positive correlation was found between organizational justice components and quality
Employees positive organizational behavior (POB) is not only to promote organizational function but also improve individual and organizational performance. As an important concept in organizational research, organizational justice is thought to be a universal predictor of employee and organizational outcomes. The current set of two studies examined the effects of organizational justice (OJ) on POB of employees with two different studies, a large-sample survey and a situational experiment. In study 1, a total of 2566 employees from 45 manufacturing enterprises completed paper-and-pencil questionnaires assessing organizational justice (OJ) and positive organizational behavior (POB) of employees. In study 2, 747 employees were randomly sampled to participate in the situational experiment with 2×2 between-subjects design. They were asked to read one of the four situational stories and to image that this situation happen to the person in the story or them, and then they were asked to imagine how the person

And healthcare executives today arent just talking about population health; theyre putting real emphasis behind it. Our survey found that providers are optimistic about the progress their organizations can make, with 65 percent stating they believe their organizations will deliver fully-scaled population health management programs within five years, while 16 percent report their organizations area already doing so. It makes sense - with providers compensated for successful health outcomes, its critical for them to focus on effective management of patient populations.. But as with any major shift in an industry, there are a number of barriers to successful implementation and adoption.

Research in its broadest sense is a contribution to knowledge. The purpose of this bibliography is to showcase the significant contributions to knowledge being made within and across our sectors by members of the Network of Alcohol and Other Drugs Agencies (NADA) and the Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC).. In community settings, and perhaps particularly where co-existing mental health and AOD issues are core business, research is often regarded as a luxury that time poor, resource constrained organisations can ill afford. We need to draw into question the logic of this reticence. The sustainability and longevity of the community sector depend on innovation, knowledge creation and sharing.. Research in mental health and AOD has the potential to improve services, practices, and peoples lives. What little we know about the nexus between mental health and AOD is in need of our attention. What we learn from research should be translated into better practices that are shared across projects, ...
