INTRODUCTION:  Valsartan is an Angiotensin II Receptor Antagonist (commonly called an ARB, or angiotensin receptor blocker), that is selective for the type I (AT1) angiotensin receptor. It is used to treat high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and to reduce death for people with left ventricular dysfunction after having had a heart attack. Figure 1: Valsartan Nifedipine is a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker that primarily blocks L-type calcium channels. Its main uses are as an antianginal and antihypertensive, although a large number of other indications have recently been found for this agent, such as Raynaud's phenomenon, premature labour, and painful spasms of the esophagus such as in cancer and tetanus patients.
Dr. Sacks discussed how L-Dopa is administered to post-encephalitic patients to replace their lack of dopamine. In theory, it should balance their chemicals and Dr. Sacks sees great improvements in them because of it. However, with the recovery of their health comes Tourette-like symptoms. To fix one thing means another problem may arise. It can be difficult to find a solution that balances out for the patients, and is important to research for this reason.
Sore Throat Overview Sore throat is an inflammation or infection of the mucus membranes lining the pharynx. It may distress the palatine tonsils as well. A sore throat can be painful and irritating. Fortunately, most sore throats are caused by a minor viral or bacterial infection and often go away without medical treatment. However, if it lasts longer than a week, then it is often due to injury or irritants, and thus requires a different management style.
The chemist studied the way our bodies rejected some of their trial meds and then how they could use the body to help them find a drug to eliminate infection. Questions the book lead me to ponder: 1. Will chemists cure cancer by finding a drug to pulverize the cancerous tissue and keep the good cells? 2. Do the colors of common medicines like ibuprofen and aspirin matter?
Hi, Chemoprevention is NOT a treatment for cancer however it is use of substances to reduce, stop or delay the development of cancer in the body. This can also be the act of being self-aware and understanding how and why cancer occur and actively taking measures to either prevent or stop occurrence. Chemoprevention involves taking substances either man-made (made in the lab) or natural. However, taking this substance might reduce the risk of cancer but might escalate other side effects. Therefore, before undertaking a method of chemoprevention consult your primary health physician and compare the pros against the cons.
Significant numbers of patients using Orlistat over a prolonged period will need multivitamin supplements containing fat-soluble vitamins (Sjostrom et al., 1998; Finer et al., 2000). Patients should be advised to take them at least 2 hours before or after the administration of Orlistat (Orlistat, 2007). Toplak et al., (2005) determined that Orlistat can decrease fat-soluble vitamins, but remained within its reference range. This risk is mitigated by an adequate diet or, exceptionally, by the daily intake of a multiple vitamin. Orlistat inhibits pancreatic carboxyl ester lipase, the enzyme necessary for hydrolysis of vitamin esters and absorption of fat soluble vitamins (Roche Pharmaceuticals, 1999; Hadvary et al., 1991, Ransac et al., 1991).
Metoprolol tartrate is a beta-blocker that lowers blood pressure by inhibiting the hormone renin in the blood, thus lowering blood pressure. According to research treating hypertension in the African American race is difficult, therefore, a combination of medication is used. In the case of Mr. Larsen, he is treated with metoprolol, in addition with spironolactone, a diuretic commonly used with an antihypertensive to alter blood pressure. Alteration in blood pressure for a prolong time can decrease cardiac output causing damaged to the
It’s unfeasible and unattainable to absolutely know for sure what triggered every breast cancer. The findings gathered from years of research have revealed though, that there are some things that can aid you in lessening your risk of breast cancer. These are: maintaining a healthy weight, drinking less alcohol, and being physically active. However, there are some factors that you won’t be able to control like getting older. Some are hard to avoid like taking HRT and being exposed to radiation.
This withdrawal can cause a person to develop a fever, nausea, diarrhea, or delirium tremens. Opiates usually opiates are not deadly, but in this case they are. Methadone, a long-acting opiate often prescribed as a replacement for heroin can cause death during withdrawal if it's consumed in high enough doses for a long enough period
