VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISM PROPHYLAXIS IN MEDICAL INPATIENTS AND ADHERENCE TO GUIDELINE RECOMMENDATIONS: A PROSPECTIVE STUDY
Background: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a common complication during and after hospitalization for medical patients. Previous studies have shown that only about one third of high risk medical patients receives VTE prophylaxis. Guidelines such as the one produced by the American college of Chest Physicians (ACCP) are aimed at reducing hospital associated VTE. The objective of this study was to ...

The common cause of leg ulceration in Western countries is venous disease of the lower limb.Venous insufficiency causes appreciable disability. Venous ulcer is one of the most prevalent diseases in the western countries and India, which can hamper personal and professional life of individual. After various methods of modern medicinal treatment and management there is a chance recurrence .This ca...
THE EFFECT OF NECA, CGS 21680, PSB 603 ON FATTY ACID TRANSPORT AND OXIDATION IN SKELETAL MUSCLE CELLS
Adenosine is a strong modulator of gene expression, which underpins some of its potential expected effects in skeletal muscle in terms of fatty acid metabolism. Accumulating evidence highlights a critical role for the adenosine system in the regulation of fatty acid metabolism and obesity. However, its molecular signaling role in fatty acid transport and oxidation in skeletal muscle is less clea...
Aim: To study the relationship between serum Vitamin D levels and insulin resistance in obese and non obese adolescents. Introduction: Vitamin D deficiency in obese adolescent is strongly associated with increased risk for diabetes, hyper tension and metabolic syndrome. Vitamin D insufficiency is a risk factor for developing impaired glucose in childhood obesity and is associated with insulin ...
A series of different 6-Methyl - 4- aryl -5 - (5-aryl -1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-yl ) -1,2,3,4-tetrahydro pyrimidin-2- (1H) - one / thione ( IIIa-g) have been synthesised fromEthyl - 6- methyl- 2- oxo / thioxo – 4-substituted phenyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro pyrimidine-5-carboxylate (Ia-g) followed by reaction with hydrazine hydrate in ethanol gave 6 - methyl-2-oxo / thioxo – 4 -substituted phenyl - 1,2...
Proteins are the most essential and versatile macromolecules of life, and the knowledge of their functions is a crucial link in the development of new drugs, better crops, and even the development of synthetic biochemicals such as biofuels. Experimental procedures for protein function prediction are inherently low throughput and are thus unable to annotate a non-trivial fraction of proteins that a...
The objective of the present work was to set up micro-coulometric technique in the laboratory and estimate microgram level quantity of nitrofurantoin in the pharmaceutical tablets. A simple, sensitive, and reproducible manually operated microcoulometric technique has been successfully used for the estimation of nitrofurantoin in pharmaceutical tablets. A potentostat and coulometric cell was used i...
Rice is the most widely cultivated food crop over world, whose production is effected by many diseases like as fungal, bacterial and viral. Bacterial blight disease of rice caused by Xanthomonas oryzae. Chemical substance like Bordeaux mixture, copper and mercurial compounds have been used. Extensive use of these chemical causes harmful impacts on human and environment. For reducing problems assoc...
There is no doubt that quite a number of obstacles are stumbling blocks to students’ practical skill acquisition. Such impediments could either be as a result of factors directly related to students, their lecturers or the institutions where the students are undergoing their training. This study identified the hindrances to practical skill development among the students in Kaduna Polytechnic, Ni...
SIMULTANEOUS QUANTIFICATION OF RUTIN AND ISOQUERCITRIN FROM JASMINUM SAMBAC AIT., BY HIGH PERFORMANCE THIN LAYER CHROMATOGRAPHY
A normal phase high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) method has been developed and validated for simultaneous quantitative determination of two flavonoids viz. rutin and isoquercitrin from dried leaf powder of Jasminum sambac Ait. The analysis was performed on TLC aluminum plates precoated with silica gel 60F254. Linear ascending development was carried out in a twin-trough glass ch...
