Effects of Carbohydrates Supplementation and Physical Exercise: A Review

Carbohydrates are by far the most common biomolecule on the planet. They are critical for muscle contraction during long-duration moderate-intensity exercise and short-duration high-intensity exercise [1,2]. A large number of studies have been conducted on the ergogenic effects of dietary capital in sports performance [3]. Carbohydrates are essential for muscle contraction during sustained moderate-intensity exercise […]

Relationships of Work Environment and Burnout among Perioperative Nurses in Spain

Background: Several international studies have found a connection between burnout and the working environment of nurses. However, there has been a scarcity of research on perioperative nurse burnout and the characteristics of their working conditions in Spain to date. The aim of this study was to look into the impact of organizational variables in the […]

Incidence of Urinary Tract Infection among Pregnant Women Attending Antenatal Clinic at Federal Medical Centre, Bida, Niger-State, North Central Nigeria: A Retrospective Study

The aim of this study was to use the gold standard of culture to establish the bacteriological aetiology and incidence of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs), as well as antibacterial susceptibility trends, among pregnant women attending antenatal clinics at the Federal Medical Centre in Bida, Niger-State. Data from pregnant women who attended regular antenatal clinics between […]

Accumulation of Heavy Metals in Soil and Their Transfer to Tissues of Azadirachta indica Collected from Akungba-Akoko, Nigeria

Cadmium, cobalt, iron, lead, and zinc levels were measured in tissues (roots, leaves, and stems) of Azadirachta indica collected at various locations in Akungba-Akoko, Nigeria (Nigeria). The elements’ transfer coefficients into plant tissues were also calculated in order to quantify differences in bioavailability among plant species. The tissues were acid-digested and flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry […]

Comparative Clinical Study of Dental Plaque Removal Efficacity between Manual Brushing, Electric Brushing and Ultrasonic Brushing

The aim of this study was to see how successful a manual, powered, and ultrasonic toothbrush is at reducing dental plaque in a dental student population. Materials and Procedures: This is a comparative cross-over analysis that enrolled 50 students and had them all complete it. All of the participants had to be in good general […]

Preliminary Screening Workers Exposed to 4,4’-Methylenebis(2-Chloroaniline) (MBOCA) for Bladder Cancer in Taiwan

At four MBOCA manufacturing plants in Taiwan, a software to track 4,4′-Methylenebis(2-chloroanilin) (MBOCA) levels in the workplace and test for bladder cancer was implemented. According to the findings of this report, there is a proven bladder carcinoma in MBOCA manufacturing plants. In addition, one worker had atypical cytology combined with gross hematuria, and another had […]

Studies on Accurate Differentiation of Dyssynergic Defecation Patients from Normal Subjects Based on Abnormal Anorectal Angle in MR Defecography

Using MR defecography, we investigated the kinematic indices of the pelvic floor, anorectal angle, and perineal descent, as well as the differences in movement, in dyssynergic defecation patients compared to healthy controls. Methods: This study included twenty-two people with dyssynergic defecation constipation and fourteen stable asymptomatic people. In patients and healthy subjects, four complex pelvic […]

Recent Study on Treatment of Glucocorticoid Steroid Resistant Chronic Inflammatory Disease with Moxa Tar

Glucocorticoids are currently used to treat chronic inflammatory disorders such as asthma, COPD, and rheumatoid arthritis. However, many chronic inflammatory disorders, such as pulmonary fibrosis, atherosclerosis-related diseases, chronic laryngitis, and chronic muscle injury, are immune to glucocorticoids. The therapeutic capacity of glucocorticoid steroids has been exhausted, necessitating the development of new anti-inflammatory drugs or therapies. […]

A New Anti-inflammatory Therapy for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is an inflammatory lung disease that causes minor airway obstruction and tissue damage in the lung alveoli. Inhaled bronchodilators and inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are the mainstays of current COPD therapy (inhaled Corticosteroids). The management of inflammation is the most important aspect of COPD treatment. However, COPD inflammation is partly immune […]
