"Medical Writings"

Suhasini Sharma
Pharmaceutical medical writing has grown significantly in India in the last couple of decades. It includes preparing regulatory, safety, and publication documents as well as educational and communication material related to health and health-care products. Medical writing requires medical understanding, knowledge of drug development and the regulatory and safety domains, understanding of research methodologies, and awareness of relevant regulations and guidelines. It also requires the ability to analyze, interpret, and present biomedical scientific data in the required format and good writing skills...

BACKGROUND: Nonadherence to antipsychotic medication among patients with schizophrenia results in poor symptom management and increased health care and other costs. Despite its health impact, medication adherence remains difficult to accurately assess. New technologies offer the possibility of real-time patient monitoring data on adherence, which may in turn improve clinical decision making. However, the economic benefit of accurate patient drug adherence information (PDAI) has yet to be evaluated...

Completion of research is logically followed by process of submission of the outcomes for publication. The objective of this article is to sensitise the young potential authors to improve their skill of writing so that the acceptance rate of publication is improved without significant comments and efforts of the editors of the journal. The article is based on the available literature combined with the experience of the author himself as reviewer and editor of biomedical journals. The treatment patterns of clinicians are moving towards evidence-based medical practice...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). While viral suppression with antiretroviral therapy decreases CVD risk overall, several studies have suggested that certain antiretrovirals, particularly certain protease inhibitors, may be associated with an increased relative risk of CVD. In AIDS Clinical Trials Group 5260 s, ritonavir-boosted atazanavir (ATV) was associated with slower atherosclerosis progression compared to ritonavir-boosted darunavir and raltegravir, potentially due to hyperbilirubinemia...

BACKGROUND: Medical writing is a coded language; its purpose is to convey a scientific message. In pathology, specialty involving the study of cell and tissue, quantitative and qualitative production of medical doctoral theses and their thematic focus has not been studied. The aim of this study was to analyze the pathology theses on the level of form, the background and methodology. METHODS: Descriptive retrospective study of medical doctoral theses in the specialty "Pathology", listed in the catalog of theses of the library of the Faculty of Medicine of Tunis and supported between 2000 and 2010...

BACKGROUND: Multiple myeloma is an incurable B-cell malignancy with a natural history that involves alternating periods of remission and subsequent relapse. For relapsed and/or refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM), the typical patient currently receives more lines of therapy than has been feasible in the past, translating into longer progression-free survival (PFS). Consequently, cost issues have become more prominent because patients may be offered newer and more expensive therapies during a more prolonged overall treatment course...

For centuries the scope of sleep disorders in medical writings was limited to those disturbances which were either perceived by the sleeper him- or herself as troublesome, such as insomnia, or which were recognized by an observer as strange behavioral acts during sleep, such as sleepwalking or sleep terrors. Awareness of other sleep disorders, which are caused by malfunction of a physiological system during sleep, such as sleep-related respiratory disorders, were widely unknown or ignored before sleep monitoring techniques became available, mainly in the second half of the 20(th) century...

A case report is a detailed narrative that usually illustrates a diagnostic or therapeutic problem experienced by one or several patients. Case reports commonly serve as the first line of evidence for new interventions or they function as alarms that an issue exists with an already established therapy. Case reports are of minor importance in evidence-based medicine; however, they make meaningful contributions to both the knowledge and education of medical students, residents, and fellows. Case reports are written with the goal of sharing information for medical, scientific, or educational purposes...

BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is a chronic, incurable, and immune-mediated skin disorder that is characterized by erythematous scaly papules and plaques. Understanding of psoriasis at the molecular level has led to the development of biologic agents that target disease-specific inflammatory mediators in psoriatic lesions. Biologic agents have become important components of the psoriasis armamentarium, but some patients become refractory to these agents over time or fail to respond to subsequent biologics...

BACKGROUND: Limited data exist on the presence of pregabalin in human breast milk of nursing mothers. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine pregabalin concentrations in breast milk, estimate the infant daily pregabalin dose from nursing mothers, and evaluate pregabalin pharmacokinetic data in lactating women (≥ 12 weeks postpartum). METHODS: In this multiple-dose, open-label, pharmacokinetic study, 4 doses of pregabalin 150 mg were administered orally at 12-hour intervals...

OBJECTIVES: Authors may choose to work with professional medical writers when writing up their research for publication. We examined the relationship between medical writing support and the quality and timeliness of reporting of the results of randomised controlled trials (RCTs). DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. STUDY SAMPLE: Primary reports of RCTs published in BioMed Central journals from 2000 to 16 July 2014, subdivided into those with medical writing support (n=110) and those without medical writing support (n=123)...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with diabetic macular edema (DME), a chronic, vision-limiting condition, may be insufficiently responsive to standard-of-care anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and/or laser therapies. One approved treatment for such patients is 0.2 μg/day fluocinolone acetonide (FAc) sustained-release implant; however, data are limited for treatment strategies in patients with bilateral chronic DME insufficiently responsive to standard-of-care therapies. METHODS: Six pseudophakic patients with bilateral, chronic DME previously treated with laser and anti-VEGF therapy (and intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide in 10 eyes) were retrospectively investigated for visual and anatomical outcomes, 6 months post-0...
