1. Comprehensive findings on clinical, bacteriological, histopathological and therapeutic aspects of cutaneous tuberculosis.
Match Strength: 8.140
OBJECTIVE: To define the bacteriological and histological correlates of the three predominant clinical forms of cutaneous tuberculosis and to evaluate the efficacy of a 9-month daily regimen containing rifampicin and isoniazid. METHODS: In the dermatological clinics of two major teaching hospitals in Chennai, 213 patients with suspected clinical manifestations of cutaneous tuberculosis underwent examination and a skin biopsy for bacteriological and histological tests. They were treated with a daily regimen of rifampicin and isoniazid for 9 months and follow-up for 3 years. RESULTS: ... Read More »

2. Medication persistence with weekly versus daily doses of orally administered bisphosphonates.
Match Strength: 8.137
OBJECTIVE: To compare medication persistence among patients receiving daily orally administered bisphosphonates with persistence among patients receiving weekly orally administered bisphosphonates to ascertain whether less frequent dosing is associated with better long-term treatment persistence. METHODS: A large, longitudinal cohort of female patients (N = 211,319) receiving prescriptions for alendronate or risedronate from approximately 14,000 US retail pharmacies was assessed. Medication persistence was defined as the percentage of patients who continued to take bisphosphonate therapy ... Read More »

3. Course of the fatigue dimension "activity level" and the interference of fatigue with daily living activities for patients with breast cancer receiving adjuvant chemotherapy.
Match Strength: 4.940
The purpose of this study was to determine the course of the activity level, seen as a dimension of fatigue, as a function of chemotherapy within a breast cancer population receiving adjuvant chemotherapy. The second purpose of this study was to determine the course of the interference of fatigue, in general, with daily activities within a breast cancer population receiving adjuvant chemotherapy. In a prospective cohort study, a sample of 157 patients with breast cancer was interviewed, at the first, third, and fifth cycle of adjuvant chemotherapy as well as 4 and 12 weeks after the last cycle ...

4. New approaches to the treatment of advanced prostate cancer.
Match Strength: 4.853
Several presentations by attendees of the 11th International Prostate Cancer Update addressed recent advances in prostate cancer treatment. A study that examined whether a relationship exists between neuroendocrine (NE) cell differentiation and hormone-refractory prostate cancer (HRPC) concluded that the appearance of NE cells in prostatic carcinoma is an important phenomenon in the development of HRPC. Exisuland, a selective apoptotic antineoplastic drug, was compared to placebo in a recent study and was found to significantly inhibit the increase of prostate-specific antigen in patients who ...

5. Effects of ibandronate on bone quality: Preclinical studies.
Match Strength: 4.709
Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone microarchitecture resulting in bone fragility, which increases the risk of fracture. The clinical efficacy of bisphosphonates is evaluated through improvements in bone mineral density (BMD) and reductions in the risk for fracture. However, as bisphosphonates are administered long term, there is increasing interest in their effects on bone quality, which includes bone mass, strength and architecture. Ibandronate is a potent, nitrogen-containing bisphosphonate with significant antifracture efficacy when ... Read More »

6. Type 1 diabetes mellitus associated with nephrotic syndrome.
Match Strength: 4.494
Nephrotic syndrome (NS) in a patient with diabetes mellitus (DM) first suggests the diagnosis of diabetic nephropathy. However, glomerular diseases other than diabetic nephropathy have been reported in patients with DM. We present a child with type 1 DM (DM1) associated with NS. A 3 year-old boy who was diagnosed with DM1 developed proteinuria in nephrotic range at the 10th month of follow-up. He had remission on steroid treatment without any problem in glycemic control as he was given tapered daily doses instead of an alternate day regimen. He relapsed at the 7th month of follow-up, and ... Read More »

7. Influence of atazanavir 200 mg on the intracellular and plasma pharmacokinetics of saquinavir and ritonavir 1600/100 mg administered once daily in HIV-infected patients.
Match Strength: 4.262
OBJECTIVES: To examine cellular and plasma concentrations of atazanavir when given in combination with saquinavir/ritonavir in HIV+ patients. METHODS: Twelve HIV+ patients were receiving saquinavir/atazanavir/ritonavir 1600/200/100 mg once daily and venous blood samples were taken to determine cellular and plasma concentrations of each protease inhibitor at 2, 6, 12 and 24 h. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were separated by density gradient centrifugation. The ratio of the cellular AUC0-24/plasma AUC0-24 was calculated to determine cellular drug accumulation. Lymphocyte P-glycoprotein (P ... Read More »

8. Hormone replacement therapy in women with epilepsy: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study.
Match Strength: 4.105
PURPOSE: Previous reports have suggested that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) could increase seizure activity in women with epilepsy. We sought to determine whether adding HRT to the medication regimen of postmenopausal women with epilepsy was associated with an increase in seizure frequency. METHODS: This was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of the effect of HRT on seizure frequency in postmenopausal women with epilepsy, taking stable doses of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), and within 10 years of their last menses. After a 3-month prospective baseline, subjects were ... Read More »

9. Effect of latanoprost on the diurnal variations in the intraocular and ocular perfusion pressure in normal tension glaucoma.
Match Strength: 3.615
PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of latanoprost on the diurnal variations in the intraocular pressure (IOP) combined with the ocular perfusion pressure (OPP) in patients with normal tension glaucoma (NTG). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-two eyes from 22 patients with NTG were used for the study. The diurnal variations in the IOP and blood pressure (BP) were measured every 3 hours without therapy, and then the patients were treated with latanoprost (0.005%) once daily for more than 12 weeks. The diurnal variations in the IOP and BP under medication were again measured every 6 hours. The diurnal ... Read More »

10. Acute renal failure associated with inhaled tobramycin.
Match Strength: 3.311
PURPOSE: A case of nephrotoxicity possibly caused by tobramycin inhalation solution is presented. SUMMARY: A 62-year-old Caucasian woman was admitted for treatment of decreased urine output and sepsis secondary to Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Her past medical history was significant for multiple diseases, including chronic renal insufficiency (baseline serum creatinine concentration [SCr] 2 mg/dL). One month postadmission, the patient was diagnosed with health care-associated pneumonia. The patient was initiated on piperacillin-tazobactam and tobramycin 2 mg/kg i.v. She was changed to imipenem ... Read More »

Match Strength: 3.141
OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the benefits and to advocate the safety and efficacy of using an insulin pump with U-500 insulin in comparison with U-100 insulin for a pregnant patient with diabetes requiring massive doses of insulin. METHODS: We present a detailed case report about the use of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion with U-500 insulin during pregnancy. Dose calculation is reviewed, and the benefits of insulin pump therapy in patients with diabetes are discussed. RESULTS: A 34-year-old white woman, with a history of type 2 diabetes for 7 years, was seen at 17 weeks of gestation ... Read More »
