The expressive use of medicinal plants promotes a growing need to understand the properties of vegetal compounds and their possible biologically active behaviors. Studies focusing on Croton heliotropiifolius have reported a predominant presence of alkaloids, polyphenols and reducing compounds. This species is reported as useful in relieving stomach pain and dysentery and as an antipyretic. This study aimed to evaluate the hemolytic capacity of the methanolic extract of C. heiotropiifoliusbyin vitroosmotic fragility assay in erythrocytes, and determine the antioxidant potential of this extract using the 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH)method. The osmotic fragility assay was performed at the concentrations 50, 100, 250, 500, 750 and 1,000 μg/mL of extract. For the in vitro photocolorimetry of free radical sequestration using DPPH, the concentrations used were 50, 100 and 200 μg/mL. The methanolic extract of C. heliotropiifolius showed a ...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the protective effect of Withaferin-A on red blood cell integrity during 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) induced oral carcinogenesis. The protective effect of Withaferin-A was assessed by measuring the status of glycoconjugates, membrane bound enzyme activity and red blood cell osmotic fragility. Oral squamous cell carcinoma was induced in the buccal pouch of Syrian golden hamsters by painting with 0.5% DMBA in liquid paraffin thrice a week for 14 weeks. The levels of glycoconjugates, membrane bound enzyme activity, osmotic fragility and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) were analyzed by using specific colorimetric methods. We observed 100% tumor formation in DMBA painted hamsters. Increase in plasma glycoconjugates at the expense of red blood cell membrane glycoconjugates levels were observed in DMBA painted hamsters as compared to control hamsters. Erythrocytes from DMBA ...

Raphiodon echinus (R. echinus) is used in Brazilian folk medicine for the treatment of inflammation, coughs, and infectious diseases. However, no information is available on the potential antioxidant, cytotoxicity and genotoxicity of this plant. In this study, the polyphenolic constituents, antioxidant capacity and potential toxic effects of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of R. echinus on human erythrocytes and leukocytes were investigated for the first time. R. echinus extracts showed the presence of Gallic, chlorogenic, caffeic and ellagic acids, rutin, quercitrin and quercetin. Aqueous and ethanolic extracts of R. echinus exhibited antioxidant activity in DPPH radical scavenging with IC50 = 111.9 μg/mL (EtOH extract) and IC50 = 227.9 μg/mL (aqueous extract). The extracts inhibited Fe2+ (10 μM) induced thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) formation in rat brain and liver homogenates. The extracts (30-480 μg/mL) did not induce genotoxicity, cytotoxicity or osmotic ...

The progress of medicine can be viewed in steps determined by methodologic advances, as well as in the development of new ideas. Landmarks in methodology include early morphologic descriptions, and osmotic fragility tests used in diagnosing and screening for beta thalassemia, so effectively used by Silvestroni and Bianco in Italy from the 1940s onward. The discovery in 1957 by Kunkel and coworkers that hemoglobin A2 is elevated in most beta-thalassemia heterozygotes started a further phase of investigation, based on both clinical and population studies. Then came rapid developments in the analysis of the hemoglobin molecule, and the concept of alpha ...

*  Osmotic fragility - Loyola University Health System
When and how often laboratory tests are done may depend on many factors. The timing of laboratory tests may rely on the results or completion of other tests, procedures, or treatments. Lab tests may be performed immediately in an emergency, or tests may be delayed as a condition is treated or monitored. A test may be suggested or become necessary when certain signs or symptoms appear. Due to changes in the way your body naturally functions through the course of a day, lab tests may need to be performed at a certain time of day. If you have prepared for a test by changing your food or fluid intake, lab tests may be timed in accordance with those changes. Timing of tests may be based on increased and decreased levels of medications, drugs or other substances in the body. The age or gender of the person being tested may affect when and how often a lab test is required. Chronic or progressive conditions may need ongoing monitoring through the use of lab tests. Conditions that worsen and improve may ...

N, normal; U, unknown; AR, autosomal recessive; AD, autosomal dominant; OF, osmotic fragility.. LABORATORY DIAGNOSIS. Although the type and severity of the anemia, the signalment involved, and pleiotropic effects observed may provide clues to the identity of an inherited erythrocyte defect, a full laboratory evaluation is essential to validate the diagnosis or to define new inherited disorders. In fact, in a few breeds more than one erythrocyte disorder has been recognized. Routine laboratory tests are used to detect hematologic abnormalities and to rule out acquired anemia. An inherited erythrocyte defect should be considered in animals with a Coombs negative hemolytic anemia, a lack of evidence of toxin exposure or infection, and adequate kidney as well as liver function. A careful examination of a peripheral blood smear is crucial for recognizing poikilocytes, such as spherocytes, elliptocytes and stomatocytes, although most erythrocyte defects cause no change in cell ...

*  Red cell properties after different modes of blood transportation - Zurich Open Repository and Archive
Transportation of blood samples is unavoidable for assessment of specific parameters in blood of patients with rare anemias, blood doping testing, or for research purposes. Despite the awareness that shipment may substantially alter multiple parameters, no study of that extent has been performed to assess these changes and optimize shipment conditions to reduce transportation-related artifacts. Here we investigate the changes in multiple parameters in blood of healthy donors over 72 h of simulated shipment conditions. Three different anticoagulants (K3EDTA, Sodium Heparin, and citrate-based CPDA) for two temperatures (4°C and room temperature) were tested to define the optimal transportation conditions. Parameters measured cover common cytology and biochemistry parameters (complete blood count, hematocrit, morphological examination), red blood cell (RBC) volume, ion content and density, membrane properties and stability (hemolysis, osmotic fragility, membrane heat stability, ...

*  Probabilistic assessment of seismic risk in urban areas
A probabilistic approach to estimate the expected seismic physical damage of existing buildings in urban areas is presented. The main steps of the procedure are seismic hazard, vulnerability and structural response. These three steps are undertaken with a fully probabilistic point of view. Seismic hazard is assessed by means of the annual rate of exceedance of a parameter quantifying the expected seismic action. Buildings may be characterized by a class in a building typology matrix and/or by a vulnerability index or, even, by its capacity curve, but in any case its seismic strength must be also defined in a probabilistic way. In the case of vulnerability index we can use beta or similar probability distributions. Finally, adequate empirical, semi-empirical or analytical damage functions or fragility curves may be used to estimate the expected damage. The method is enlightened by means of four cases, corresponding to two un-reinforced masonry buildings located in the Colima and Coatzacoalcos ...

*  Falkenblog: Taleb Mishandles Fragility
Then there are the many confused or dubious assertions, such as that the improbable events that underlie his strategy of embracing Black Swans are both impossible to quantify and highly rewarding, or that fragility is like risk in that it is what causes things to fail and has a return premium but unlike risk is quantifiable, that finance professors don't understand 'real options', or that economists don't understand that f(E(x)),,E[f(x)], or that the biggest investing problem created by Markowitz is too much optimization. His equation for fragility has a couple of subjective parameters (K, and the density of alpha) that are unfalsifiable given his definition of Black Swans (its probability can't be estimated!), and equations with unknown parameters are like bad haikus, or rather, very helpful if you want to impress the mathematically challenged (in case you don't know math, jut ask him if a number of +0.23 is more than 1 sd above average, and what that implies for expected ...

Enteric diseases, including the development of diarrhoea, are an often seen problem in raising piglets, causing severe economic losses due to premature death, reduced piglet performance as well as accumulating costs from treatment as well as diagnostic measures. But why are piglets so highly susceptible to germs which don't affect older animals and why is their course of disease often much more dramatic?

At a low cost of doing a 12-lead, you prevent a catastrophe - missing a STEMI. ...
