OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to evaluate whether or not chronic Rosa Canina (RC) extract administration could improve recognition memory and depressive-like behaviour in diabetic mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventy-five (75) male Albino mice (25-30 g) were randomly divided into five groups (15 in each group). A single intraperitoneal (ip) injection of 200 mg/kg streptozotocin (STZ) was administered to the mice to induce diabetes. The control group received normal saline, and the diabetic groups received normal saline or 50, 250 and 500 mg/kg of RC extract for 28 days...

OBJECTIVE: This study was conducted to investigate the mechanisms of action of Eurycoma longifolia in rat corpus cavernosum. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Tincture of the roots was concentrated to dryness by evaporating the ethanol in vacuo. This ethanolic extract was partitioned into five fractions sequentially with hexane, dichloromethane, ethyl acetate, butanol and water. The corpus cavernosum relaxant activity of each fraction was investigated. Dichloromethanic (DCM) fraction which showed the highest potency in relaxing phenylephrine-precontracted corpora cavernosa was purified by column chromatography...

Iatrogenic tracheal rupture (ITR) represents a life-threatening condition requiring prompt diagnosis, management, and treatment. The management of ITR is challenging, and treatment options depend on tear location, size, injury extent, and the patient's respiratory status. Although this complication has been extensively reported in published literature, the best evidence practice, for the management, requires clarification. In this review, the authors focused on the establishment of a differential diagnosis and the potential mechanism of the injury, the decision-making process, and the therapeutic approaches...

Precision medicine is based on accurate diagnosis and tailored intervention through the use of omics and clinical data together with epidemiology and environmental exposures. Precision medicine should be achieved with minimum adverse events and maximum efficacy in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). In this review, the breakthroughs of omics in CKD and the application of systems biology are reviewed. The potential role of transforming growth factor-β1 in the targeted intervention of renal fibrosis is discussed as an example of how to make precision medicine work for CKD...

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that shock wave therapy can produce a statistically significant improvement in symptoms and imaging features of the knee bone marrow edema syndrome (BMES) within 6 months of treatment. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Eighty-six consecutive patients suffering from BMES of the medial compartment of the knee were prescribed a course of high-energy extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) and clinically followed up at 3 and 6 months and finally from 14 to approximately 18 months after treatment...
