The lesions gradually improved within 3 months and the dosage of prednisolone was slowly decreased to 15 mg/day. 3 months later, the lesions were resolved with flattening of lesions leaving residual post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and the treatments were gradually adjusted to prednisolone 5 mg/day and azathioprine 50 mg/day to control the symptoms. There was no recurrence after a 6-month follow-up. As maintenance therapy, azathioprine was administered 50 mg on every other day and prednisolone was discontinued. After 12-month treatment, the level of anti-desmoglein 3 antibody was decreased from 483 to

The observed adverse events were mild or moderate and infrequent. The researchers did not observe any dose limiting toxicities or serious adverse effects. The pharmacokinetic profile after the administration of a single dose indicated a dose proportional response and the half-life was shown to increase directly with the increasing dose. Intravenous administration of the synthetic tymosine beta 4 as a single dose or in multiple daily doses within the range of 42-1260 mg had favorable tolerance with no signs of dose limiting
Patient was not known to have any underlying medical problem. She also complained of reduced effort tolerance for the past two years.

He reported that the intervals between the episodes of biliary colic decreased from one time every 10 days until it became daily. Also, the attack of biliary colic was relieved by intramuscular injection of antispasmodics and analgesics at first, but they weren’t effective anymore. The option of cholecystectomy was discussed and the patient agreed. Pre-operative laboratory investigations revealed normal kidney function, normal blood picture and elevated liver enzymes and elevated bilirubin (AST=174 u/L), (ALT=399 u/L), (GGT=206 u/L), (Alkaline phosphatase=147 u/L), (Direct bilirubin=2.0 mg/dl) and (Indirect bilirubin= 0.6 mg/dl). The patient was admitted to gastrointestinal endoscopy unit for Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).

In the current study, a new treatment (bladder distension) was compared with the currently available treatment (misoprostol). This study aimed to reveal that uterine straightening by bladder distension was not inferior to misoprostol in relieving the pain experienced by postmenopausal patients during office hysteroscopy. At the time of study design, there were no studies in literature that reported the use of vaginal misoprostol (400µg) 12 hours before office hysteroscopy in postmenopausal patients. Available studies either included heterogeneous population of patients (postmenopausal patients and patients of reproductive age) or investigated different regimens of misoprostol administration in postmenopausal patients undergoing office hysteroscopy[6, 7,
