Preventing And Treating 'Equine Strep Throat'

According to study, researchers examined that the strep throat can run rampant in elementary schools, strangles, the "strep throat" of horses, caused by a different Streptococcus bacterium, Streptococcus equi sp equi, is highly contagious. Lymph nodes in the head and neck region become swollen and develop abscesses, resulting in nasal discharge and drainage from the throat.

Emergency Treatment Of Drug Overdoses Taken By Patients

A study estimated that many are scrambling to meet growing demand for emergency room treatment of drug overdoses, but they are hampered by the lack of a quick and easy test to screen patients for synthetic 'designer' drugs. Chemists are developing such a test with the hope that hospitals could eventually use it to choose the appropriate treatment. Drug overdoses are taking a huge toll on public health, with potent synthetic drugs posing a particular threat. 

New Map That Shows The Cell Nucleus And Its Properties

According to study, researchers have described the architecture of the nuclear pore complex in yeast cells. The biological blueprint they uncovered shares principles sometimes seen on a much larger scale in concrete, steel, and wire. The gateway to cellular headquarters has 552 components. A new map that shows how all these pieces fit together could help scientists study numerous diseases. The study was published in Nature.

To Analyze The Risk Factors For CKD Patients

A study estimates the risk factors for new-onset chronic kidney disease (CKD) in patients who have received a liver transplant. A total of 190 patients who underwent liver transplantation between March 2001 and January 2015 were followed up and analyzed retrospectively.

Sex, age, primary disease, preoperative laboratory findings, surgical approach, blood loss during the surgery and transfusion volume, postoperative complications, and the average levels of calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs) were analyzed. In total, 40 patients developed new-onset CKD after transplantation.

Anesthesia Given To Tracheal Bronchus Patients

The tracheal bronchus is a congenital anatomical variant of patients with accessory bronchus in the right upper lobe deriving directly from the supracarinal trachea. Pre-operative consultation with the anesthesiologist is important for patient safety and can avoid adverse effects induced by endotracheal intubation. The study involves complications in the tracheal bronchus.

Postoperative Chemoradiotherapy Offers No Extra Benefit in HNSCC

Although surgery and postoperative radiotherapy provided excellent freedom from locoregional relapse (FFLRR) in patients with high-risk cutaneous head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), there was no observed benefit with the addition of weekly carboplatin, according to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
