Selumetinib – Shrinks Tumors, Provides Clinical Benefit NF1

Selumetinib/Findings from a phase 2 clinical trial show that the drug selumetinib improves outcomes for children with the genetic disorder neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). In the trial, selumetinib shrank the inoperable tumors that develop with NF1 called plexiform neurofibromas, and children experienced reduced pain, improved function, and better overall quality of life after receiving the Read More >>>>

Arenaviruses – Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, Risks

Arenaviruses are enveloped viruses (about 120 nm diameter) with a bi-segmented negative-strand RNA genome. The typical image in electronic microscopy showing grainy ribosomal particles (“arena” in Latin) inside the virions gave the name to this family of viruses. In 1933, the first virus of the Arenaviridae family, the Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCM) virus, was isolated in Read More >>>>

Latest Update of Coronavirus – Symptoms and Risks

Latest Update of Coronavirus/Coronavirus (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals Read More >>>>

Stem Cell Therapies – FDA Warns About Stem Cell Therapies

Stem Cell Therapies /Researchers hope stem cells will one day be effective in the treatment of many medical conditions and diseases. But unproven stem cell treatments can be unsafe—so get all of the facts if you’re considering any treatment. Stem cells have been called everything from cure-alls to miracle treatments. But don’t believe the hype. Read More >>>>

What Are The Most Common Side Effects of Antibiotics

What Are The Most Common Side Effects of Antibiotics

What Are The Most Common Side Effects of Antibiotics/Antibiotics also called an antibacterial type of antimicrobial drug used in the treatment and prevention of bacterial infections. They may either kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. A limited number of antibiotics also possess antiprotozoal activity. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses such as the common cold or influenza; drugs which inhibit viruses are termed antiviral drugs or antivirals rather than antibiotics. You’ve most likely taken an antibiotic at least once in your Read More >>>>

Lyme Disease; Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment

Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne disease in the United States. This review details the risk factors, clinical presentation, treatment, and prophylaxis for the disease. Typically, the tick must feed for at least 36 hours for transmission of the causative bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi, to occur. Each of the 3 stages of the disease is Read More >>>>

Tiemonium Methylsulfate, Indications/Uses, Side Effects, Interactions

Tiemonium Methylsulfate

Tiemonium Methylsulfate is a synthetic antispasmodic agent. Tiemonium strengthens calcium bonding with phospholipids and proteins thus stabilizing the cell membrane of the GI tract.Tiemonium Methylsulphate is a quarternary ammonium antimuscarinic agent with spasmolytic (antispasmodic) and parasympatholytic (anticholinergic) effects and is used in the relief of visceral spasms. Indications of Tiemonium Methylsulfate Visceral spasms Tiemonium Methylsulphate may also Read More >>>>

Nitazoxanide, Indications, Dosage, Side Effects, Interactions, Pregnancy


Nitazoxanide is a synthetic benzamide with antiprotozoal activity. Nitazoxanide exerts its antiprotozoal activity by interfering with the pyruvate ferredoxin/flavodoxin oxidoreductase dependent electron transfer reaction, which is essential to anaerobic energy metabolism. PFOR enzyme reduces nitazoxanide, thereby impairing the energy metabolism. However, interference with the PFOR enzyme-dependent electron transfer reaction may not be the only pathway by which nitazoxanide exhibits antiprotozoal activity. Nitazoxanide is active against Giardia Read More >>>>

Metronidazole, Indications, Dosage, Side Effects, Interactions


Metronidazole is a synthetic nitroimidazole derivative with antiprotozoal and antibacterial activities. Although its mechanism of action is not fully elucidated, un-ionized metronidazole is readily taken up by obligate anaerobic organisms and is subsequently reduced by low-redox potential electron-transport proteins to an active, intermediate product. Reduced metronidazole causes DNA strand breaks, thereby inhibiting DNA synthesis and bacterial cell growth. A metroimidazole is an antibiotic and antiprotozoal medication Read More >>>>



Medication/Drugs is any substance (other than food that provides nutritional support) that, when inhaled, injected, smoked, consumed, absorbed via a patch on the skin, or dissolved under the tongue causes a temporary physiological (and often psychological) change in the body. In pharmacology, a drug is a chemical substance of known structure, other than a nutrient of an essential dietary ingredient, which, when administered to a living organism, produces Read More >>>>
