Carbamazepine (CBZ), a well-tolerated anticonvulsant, but frequently associated with severe cutaneous reactions, such as the Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is used in the treatment of this complication. The objective of this article was to report a case of SJS/TEN secondary to CBZ in a patient with PHN.

Fluorinated quinolones exert their bactericidal activity by inhibiting bacterial type II topoisomerases. At therapeutic concentrations, quinolones superinduce interleukin-2 (IL-2) and interferon-gamma production by mitogen-activated human peripheral blood T lymphocytes. At the molecular level, a stronger activation of the nuclear factor AP-1 ('activator protein-1') is observed in cells incubated with ciprofloxacin, resulting in enhanced cytokine gene transcription. Several cytokine and immediate early (e.g...

Energy is required by humans for such vital activities as metabolic processes and muscular contraction. The support of protein synthesis is critical in clinical nutritional support; approximately 25 per cent of energy expenditure is devoted to the support of protein synthesis. Energy is stored as carbohydrate, fat, and protein. Stored carbohydrate is rapidly exhausted, and the utilization of protein for energy is detrimental. Fat storage is usually abundant but cannot be mobilized and oxidized sufficiently to meet energy requirements, particularly in injured or septic patients...
