Medication Synthesis Week Seven A twenty-five-year old Caucasian female presented to the office with burning with urination. External inspection of the patient’s labia majora revealed genital herpes. Herpes simplex virus infections associated with the genitals are usually deemed type two (Uphold & Graham, 2013). The patient was placed on acyclovir for her outbreak. The current dosage that she is being placed on is 400 mg orally every eight hours for ten days (Medscape, n.d.). There are no medication contraindications for this drug; however, one should not use neomycin orally due to an increase in nephrotoxicity and or otoxicity if the two are taken together (Medscape, n.d.). Other medications such as bacitracin and cidofovir should also not be used with acyclovir due to an increase in nephrotoxicity and or otoxicity if these are
Menhaden are found primarily anywhere in the Western Atlantic. Also found near Nova Scotia, Florida, and Canada. They are found throughout the Chesapeake Bay. They love to form large schools. They are mostly found in depths as low as -20m; because of this, the Menhaden, is put in the marine area at the Atlantic Ocean. The Menhaden is normally targeted by predators such as, sharks, bony fish, and rays. In 2014, 1.15 billion menhaden were caught by commercial fisherman, in the Golf and Atlantic alone.
For six years, Eli Yanakakis has lived three stories underground in a generous fallout shelter. On his ninth birthday, his father claimed that there was a nuclear attack that was coming which he then took them to the compound. The door to the compound is sealed and set to open in fifteen years, enough time for the nuclear waste from the attack to not be able to harm anyone. The only people Eli has seen or communicated with for years are his mother, father, and two sisters. He was really missing the rest of his family like his twin brother named hamburgers, his grandmother named eddy, and his dog. Though The Compound seems to have everything he could ever want, Eli is afraid that there are many flaws in his father's plan to survive the nuclear
Abstract This paper discusses the medication Trazodone Hydrochloride. Information on the history and primary uses for the medication are included. Full description of the medication will be provided with information gathered from cited sources and personal experiences. Interaction of the medication on the human brain will also be discussed, as well as side-effects and medication dependency. Cross-medication between human medicine and animal medicine are illustrated by the use of human medications for the treatment of certain medical conditions observed in veterinary medicine. Finally, societal impacts and strategies to reduce these impacts will be discussed and alternative medications will be offered for consideration.
As of October 2, 2017 there has been a reverified shortage of the Lidocaine Hydrochloride injection. The generic name is Lidocaine where the brand name is Xylocaine. It is a Local Anesthetic and an Antiarrhythmic Agent Class 1b. Xylocaine is used as a local anesthetic by infiltration, epidural or nerve
Nicotinamide is helpful to cancer patients. A recent study found that a method for treating cancer by administering a patient having or suspected of having cancer an effective amount of a nicotinamide riboside related prodrug in combination with an isolated eukaryotic nicotinamide riboside kinase polypeptide or expression
Dihydrodaidzein Description: IC50: Dihydrodaidzein, an active, estrogenic metabolite of daidzein in colonic bacteria, probably is further metabolized to various bioactive compounds including equol. As an estrogen receptor agonist, dihydrodaidzein activates the estrogen receptor-dependent growth of breast cancer MCF-7 cells at micromolar concentrations. Daidzein, an isoflavonoid phytoestrogenic compound, is found in in soybeans, clover, pea pods, kudzu, and other legumes.
Gender Roles Being a woman, we are consistently fighting to be perceived as equal no matter which part of the world we may come from. For men it is easy to adopt in any parts of the world for society have always put men first. Men have been put first in labor as in bring home the money, while women are to stay home with the children. In the story “Invierno” by Junot Díaz and “Americanah” by Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie, both woman experience changes that made it hard for them to adopt in America.
On April 1915, The first poison gas attack began when the German forces shocked the Allied forces along the Western Front by firing more than 150 tonnes of lethal chlorine gas against two French colonial divisions at Ypres, Belgium (History.com Staff, 2010). Poison gas was the most feared of all weapons in World War One. Poison gas was used in the trenches even when there was no attack going on. If a Soldiers got trapped with poison gas, it would mean that soldiers have to put a crude gas mask (Figure 1) on because it helped protect the soldiers from inhaling airborne pollutants and toxic gases. Poison gas can leave the victim in agony for days and weeks before they succumbed to their injuries.
Activation of diazinon into diazoxon is located in the liver microsomal enzyme system, and requires O2 and NADPH (Reaction 1). In other wise, it can be degenerated via oxidation also in the microsomal enzyme system (Reaction 2). Both reactions are possible, and are catalyzed likely by the same mixed function oxidase (DZN Technical Fact Sheet, 2009). Once diazoxon is biotransformed, it is degenerated again due to the very effective hydrolyases in the microsomal enzyme and other sub cellular factions within the liver (Reaction 3). Delayed toxicity is noticed for diazinon if significant amounts of it are stored in fatty tissues, because of its fat solubility (Reigert and Roberts, 1999); according to this, mammalian specie degenerate
Benzalknoium salts are considered as cationic surfactants and have more than one atomic name. Surfactants are compounds that subordinate the surface tension amid two liquids or amid a liquid and a solid. Applications of surfactants are that they have the availability to act as detergents, dispersants, wetting agents, foaming agents, and emulsifiers. Benzalknoium salts which contain surfactants are used in disinfectants, antiseptics, and preservatives which are imperative for medicines that ameliorate the nasal and eye. These salts are very simple to make but can become very aggressive when synthesizing.
The History of Amyl Nitrates Amyl Nitrates, also known as “Poppers,” were created in a lab in the year of 1857. The original use of Amyl Nitrates were to ease chest pain and also ease pain from Angina. When the drug was first manufactured in small glass containers that made a popping sound when the capsules were opened, hence creating the nickname, “Poppers.” Not even two years later, the first effects of the drug surfaced, being noticed by doctors in Europe. Then, eight years later, doctors learned about how the drug made the user feel relaxed, because of the effect it had on the user’s muscles. Upon the success of how it helped ease pain from Angina and other pains, the FDA approved Amyl Nitrate as an over the counter drug. However,
Monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of glutamic acid. This is one of the most abundant non-essential amino acid. Glutamate can be found in many different foods such as cheeses, tomatoes, potatoes, mushrooms, and various other fruits and vegetables. Monosodium glutamate is likely found in high protein foods like dairy products, fish, and meats. When monosodium glutamate is added to foods, it creates a flavoring function that naturally occurs in foods. The taste that it adds is one of our fifth tastes on our sensory palate, unami. Unami is often described as savory. Today, monosodium glutamate is made from an industrial fermentation process.
