JOURNAL ARTICLE
Ramasamy Chidambaram
Chronic kidney disease, (CKD) a gradual and inevitable deterioration in renal function, is the disease with the most associations in dentistry. Dosage adjustment is one amongst the vital elements to be familiar with during their oral care. CKD patients take extended duration to filter out medications, therefore dosage must always be tailored under the supervision of nephrologist. The relished benefits from antibiotic could transform as anti-microbial resistance on their abuse and nephrotoxic when contraindicated drugs are encouraged...

Most of the defensive functions of the human skin are localized to the stratum corneum (SC), the outermost layer of the epidermis consisting of several layers of cornified keratinocytes embedded in a lipid matrix. Included in the armamentarium of the epidermal barrier against microbial invasion are surface pH, SC lipids, specialized antimicrobial peptides such as defensins and cathelicidins, enzymes and enzyme inhibitors, chemokines, and epidermal Toll-like receptors. Multiple epidermal defensive mechanisms are co-localized, coregulated, and intertwined...

REVIEW
Khushboo G Faldu, Jigna S Shah, Snehal S Patel
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease affecting geriatric populations for which several causes have been proposed. These include a relationship with known pathogens although the exact nature of such a relationship remains uncertain. Herpes simplex virus-1 has been proposed as potential cause of AD because of its ability to form ß amyloid(Aß) and neurofibrillary tangles due to tau hyperphosphorylation and action of beta & gamma secretase on amyloid precursor protein(APP) together with genetic association with apolipoprotein-E4(ApoE-Ɛ4), which points out to latent Herpes Simplex virus-1 as an agent causing AD...

INTRODUCTION: Leptospirosis has reemerged as significant threat particularly in developing countries, including those in Latin America. Data from Colombia is still limited and there are no published studies in the Western area of the country. METHODS: Data on suspected cases were collected over the study period (2008- 2012). Cases were diagnosed clinically and confirmed by ELISA IgG and microscopic agglutination test (MAT) (titers ≥1:400). RESULTS: During the study period 264 suspected cases of leptospirosis were found...

BACKGROUND: There are few studies occupationally profiling as well as using Geographic information system (GIS) to map human leptospirosis. There are no detailed, municipality-level, epidemiological maps in Colombia neither in South America. We developed such maps for the Coffee-triangle region, Colombia and assess some occupational issues. METHODS: surveillance cases data (2007-2011) were used to estimate the annual incidence rates (cases/100,000 population) of leptospirosis to develop the first maps of disease in the 53 municipalities of the Coffee-triangle region of Colombia...

South Asia is regarded as the hot spot for the tourist and travelers. Unfortunately, three big countries (India, Pakistan and Bangladesh) of this region belong to top five rabies endemic countries of the world. Around 55,000 people die of rabies every year globally and 45% of them belong to South and South East Asia. Countries are now working on the elimination of rabies by the year 2020. Elimination of animal rabies is the pivotal of controlling human rabies. Dog (primary source) registration, population control and mass vaccination are the different ways of eliminating animal rabies...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of doxycycline treatment on cytokine levels, including tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and interleukin 6 (IL-6), and mortality in dengue patients at high risk of complication. METHODS: A group of dengue hemorrhagic fever patients (n=231) were randomized to receive either standard supportive care or supportive care in addition to oral doxycycline twice daily for 7 days. Dengue virus infection was confirmed by PCR using multiple primers...

#94
REVIEW
Mehmet Doganay, Hayati Demiraslan
Anthrax is primarily a disease of herbivores and the etiological agent is B. anthracis which is a gram-positive, aerobic, spore-forming, and rod shaped bacterium. Bacillus anthracis spores are highly resistant to heat, pressure, ultraviolet and ionizing radiation, chemical agents and disinfectants. For these reasons, B. anthracis spores are an attractive choice as biological agents for the use of bioweapon and/or bioterrorism. Soil is the main reservoir for the infectious agent. The disease most commonly affects wild and domestic mammals...

Akira Ito, Toni Wandra, Tiaoying Li, Paron Dekumyoy, Agathe Nkouawa, Munehiro Okamoto, Christine M Budke
Three human Taenia species, Taenia solium, Taenia saginata, and Taenia asiatica, are endemic in rural regions of Asia, with these species sympatrically distributed in parts of Thailand and China. The pork tapeworm, T. solium, is the most pathogenic to humans, causing cysticercosis and neurocysticercosis (NCC). Due to its public health impact, T. solium taeniasis/cysticercosis is one of 17 neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) prioritized by the World Health Organization. In this review, the current status of taeniasis and NCC in several Asian countries will be presented as will possible prevention and control strategies...
