Central Nervous System Manifestations and its Outcome in Dengue Fever

Dengue infection is one of the most important Arboviral infections of humans and is one of the most important Tropical Infectious Disease of the World. The occurance of Neurological Manifestations in Dengue infection have been recognized for long. In previous reports of neurologic involvement in Dengue infections, the observed “Encephalopathy” was thought to be due to prolong shock, along with fluid extravasation, cerebral edema, hyponatremia and liver failure. Recently however, Direct Neurotropic Potential of the virus has been recognized. In India too, Neurological complications of Dengue have been recognized. Hence this book should shed some light on "The Incidence of CNS Manifestations in Children with Dengue Fever, Spectrum of Neurological Manifestations and Presence of Dengue Specific IgM antibodies in the CSF". This book shall serve as a useful guide for medical students, postgraduates and clinicians. Also a handy book for those interested in Tropical Infectious Disesases.
Thrombopathy and Bleeding manifestations in Patients with Dengue Fever Thrombopathy and Bleeding manifestations in Patients with Dengue Fever Новинка

Thrombopathy and Bleeding manifestations in Patients with Dengue Fever

Dengue fever (DF) and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) are caused by the dengue virus. The main pathophysiological hallmark that distinguishes DHF from DF is the plasma leakage. Following this leakage, hypovolemic shock occurs as a consequence of a critical plasma volume loss. Constant hematological alterations occurring in DHF and frequently include bone marrow suppression, leukopenia and thrombocytopenia. An enhanced immune response of the host to a secondary Dengue Virus infection is a feature of DHF and leads to many consequences.The mechanisms underlying the bleeding in Dengue are multiple. These are vasculopathy, thrombopathy and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Thrombopathy consists of thrombocytopenia and platelet dysfunction. DIC is prominent in patients with dengue infection. The most severe DIC and massive bleeding are the result of prolonged shock and cause a fatal outcome. The mechanisms of thrombopathy and causes were discussed in this book.

Dengue Fever in Pakistan

Dengue fever (DF) is the most common mosquito-borne viral disease affecting humans worldwide, especially in tropical and subtropical regions. Dengue has been reported for more than 100 countries, with 2.5–3 billion people living in areas at potential risk of dengue transmission. It is estimated that 50–100 million patients of dengue occur annually of which 250,000 progress to DHF/DSS resulting in 24,000 deaths. This is the first study which documented the real prevalence, mortality and case fatality rate in dengue fever and compared the clinical features of classical dengue fever (CDF), dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) and dengue shock syndrome (DSS) in children and adults. The book will help the policy makers in developing the dengue control strategies as it revealed the change in seasonal trend of the disease occurrence and also the shift of affected people from children to adults. It will also help the physicians in the early diagnosis of dengue fever on the basis of symptoms and haematological parameters. The common people can also get benefit by knowing the temporal distribution, the characteristics symptoms, the major outcomes and the prevention strategies against the disease.

Diseases of Central Nervous System

The central nervous system (CNS) is the part of the nervous system that integrates the information that it receives from, and coordinates the activity of, all parts of the bodies of bilaterian animals—that is, all multicellular animals except sponges and radially symmetric animals such as jellyfish. It contains the majority of the nervous system and consists of the brain and the spinal cord. Some classifications also include the retina and the cranial nerves in the CNS. Together with the peripheral nervous system, it has a fundamental role in the control of behavior. The CNS is contained within the dorsal cavity, with the brain in the cranial cavity and the spinal cord in the spinal cavity. In vertebrates, the brain is protected by the skull, while the spinal cord is protected by the vertebrae, and both are enclosed in the meninges.

Dengue Outbreak in Pakistan and its Prevention

Dengue fever also known as break bone fever, is an infectious tropical disease caused by the dengue virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, and a characteristic skin rash that is similar to measles. In a small proportion of cases the disease develops into the life-threatening dengue hemorrhagic fever, resulting in bleeding, low levels of blood platelets and blood plasma leakage, or into dengue shock syndrome, where dangerously low blood pressure occurs. Dengue is transmitted by several species of mosquito within the genus Aedes, principally A. aegypti. The virus has four different types; infection with one type usually gives lifelong immunity to that type, but only short-term immunity to the others. Subsequent infection with a different type increases the risk of severe complications. As there is no vaccine, prevention is sought by reducing the habitat and the number of mosquitoes and limiting exposure to bites. Treatment of acute dengue is supportive, using either oral or intravenous rehydration for mild or moderate disease, and intravenous fluids and blood transfusion for more severe cases.

Interaction of opioid and sympathetic nervous system in PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a heterogenous endocrinal disorder that affects women in their reproductive age. PCOS is an important risk factor for CVD, DM and endometrial cancer. Sympathetic nervous system is very important in the etiology of PCOS and regulation of ovarian physiology. Hyperactivity of the sympathetic nervous system, stress and opioid ? endorphin release are associated with PCOS. Endogenous opioids (? endorphin) are inhibitory neurotransmitters. PCOS is related to the peripheral and central factors e.g. opioid peptide ? endorphin which influences sympathetic nervous system. In PCOS opioid system is dysregulated and this cause abnormality in reproductive and metabolic hormones. High opioid tone is found in PCO women. High opioid activity is suppressed by the antagonist Naloxone or Naltrexone. Yohimbine is antagonist of sympathetic nervous system and decreases sympathetic activity and reduces PCOS. Naloxone, Yohimbine and their combined therapy was very effective and cause reduction in PCOS.

Dengue virus infection in Nepal

Dengue is the most important mosquito borne disease because of its escalating spread affecting about 50-100 million people each year. The principal dengue vector Aedes aegypti is now well established in almost countries of the tropics and subtropics with estimated 3.6 billion people at risk of contracting dengue. In recent years, the rapid expanding of secondary vector A. albopictus to the uninfested regions including Europe has increased its concern for inflicting dengue. Nepal experienced the first indigenous transmission of dengue virus in 2006. This book furnishes the clear insights of the status of dengue burden in some western lowlands of Nepal. The acute infection of dengue virus was assessed by serological assay and the high positivity to dengue virus underscores the co-circulation of dengue viruses in the terai region, hinting possible epidemic of DHF. The book could be useful to the researchers, university students and other stakeholders to understand the distributions of the disease in the newly affected country and realize the necessity of prospective research avenues to better understand the disease dynamics and vector ecology for crafting effective control measures.

In addition, both Ae.aegypti and Ae.albopictus mosquitoes were quantified using the Ovitrap Positivity Index (OPI).
Dengue Fever Outbreak Investigation & Epidemic Prediction Dengue Fever Outbreak Investigation & Epidemic Prediction Новинка

Dengue Fever Outbreak Investigation & Epidemic Prediction

The clinical laboratory findings of dengue fever include low levels of white blood cells (leukopenia) and platelets (thrombocytopenia) and, often, an elevated level of the enzyme serum aminotransferase. The diagnosis of dengue fever is usually confirmed in the laboratory by serologic tests on blood samples from the patient. (In very technical terms, this is done by antigen-detection ELISA or PR-PCR during the acute phase of the disease or by IgM ELISA or paired serology during the recovery phase of dengue fever). During the acute phase of the illness, the dengue virus that causes the disease can also be readily isolated from the patient's bloodstream. A drop in the platelet count below 1,00,000 per cmm is usually seen between the 3rd and 7th days. The WBC counts may be variable but usually shows leucopenia with relative lymphocytosis. Hemoconcentration is almost always present with the hematocrit raising more than 20% of the average value for the age and population. Other wise an absolute value of more than 40% is diagnostic of DHF. This is direct evidence of plasma leakage, unless it is interfered by administration of fluids or massive internal hemorrhage.
Ocular manifestations in Meningitis in Children Ocular manifestations in Meningitis in Children Новинка

Ocular manifestations in Meningitis in Children

Meningitis is the most common central nervous system disease affecting children leading to focal neurological deficits and various oculovisual anomalies including blindness in children. Commonly seen meningitis in children is of two types – Pyogenic and Tubercular. Meningitis can be associated with cranial neuropathies of II, III, IV, VI and VII cranial nerves due to focal or generalized inflammation. Optic neuritis, optic atrophy and Papilledema are the most important neurological sequelae of meningitis, mainly, tubercular. A Prospective study undertaken for 18 months to evaluate the oculovisual anomalies in Nepalese children showed a high incidence (38.46%) of ocular manifestations in these children. Higher incidence of oculovisual anomalies was seen in Tubercular meningitis as it is a subacute slowly progressive form of meningitis with increased intra-cranial pressure and perivascular fibrosis for more prolonged periods of time. Delayed presentation, hydrocephalous and increased total cell count in CSF were found to be few of the critical determinants, which affected the visual outcome in meningitis patients. Hence, health education and timely intervention are essential.

Toxicity of Citrus Extracts Against Aedes albopictus

Diseases transmitted by mosquitoes continue to be a major part of illness and death. Malaria, filariasis, Japanese encephalitis and dengue fever are important diseases vectored by mosquitoes. Dengue fever is becoming more and more vital public health concern in tropical and sub tropical world with Aedes albopictus as the core mosquito vector in this respect. Presently controlling this vector with habitat spraying remains an important option to minimize the incidence of dengue fever. However, the mishandling and/or overuse of synthetic chemicals in public health programs have caused many problems to human beings and environment as well. To lessen these problems, major consideration has been on the use of natural plant based products as larvicides which could provide alternatives to synthetic insecticides. Citrus is one of the most commonly consumed fruits with elements that have mosquitocidal properties and the oils from these are effective against dengue and malarial mosquitoes. This book, therefore, focuses on to evaluate the mosquitocidal properties of citrus waste-derived essential oils from various cultivars of citrus family (Rutaceae).

Factors Affecting the Outcome of Spinal Dysraphism Repair

Spinal dysraphism is the commonest congenital abnormalities of the central nervous system. This developmental defect can involve the neural tube, notochord, ectoderm, mesoderm and rarely endoderm. The term spinal dysraphism refers to the spinal abnormalities that have incomplete midline closure of mesenchymal, osseous and neural structure. Spinal dysraphism can be classified into open spinal dysraphism or closed spinal dysraphism. Children with spinal dysraphism who survive are likely to have severe, life-long disabilities and are at risk for psychosocial maladjustment. Medical problems may often result from the neurologic defects or from its repair or may be sequelae of the neurologic deficit. This book presents the various factors that can affect the outcome after spinal dysraphism repair from an institutional experience.
Regulation of MHC Class I by Dengue Virus Regulation of MHC Class I by Dengue Virus Новинка

Regulation of MHC Class I by Dengue Virus

Despite aggressive efforts in dengue research, the control of dengue diseases and discovery of therapeutics against them await complete elucidation of its complex immune-pathogenesis. Virtually all mammalian cells express surface major histocompatibility complex class I (MHC Class I) molecules which are crucial for immune recognition and MHC-restricted cytolysis as part of the adaptive immune response. In contrast to many viruses that escape this host’s immune responses by suppressing the MHC Class I pathway, infections by Flaviviruses, such West Nile virus, have been associated with a virus-specific increase of these antigen-presenting molecules. This study presents evidence of MHC Class I gene modulation by dengue virus, hence providing a better understanding of dengue immunopathogenesis that would consequently facilitate the discovery of antiviral therapeutics against dengue.

Effect of Chromium Toxicity on Dengue Virus Infection in Mice Effect of Chromium Toxicity on Dengue Virus Infection in Mice Новинка

Effect of Chromium Toxicity on Dengue Virus Infection in Mice

Dengue is endemic all over India so is the occupational and non-occupational exposure to hexavalent chromium. The pathogenesis of dengue depends upon the immune response of the body. The intermediary products generated during reduction of chromium (VI) kill the target cells including leucocytes by apoptosis. This effect of chromium compromises the immune response of the host. It is, therefore, possible that the chromium toxicity may affect the disease process during dengue virus infection. There are no reports in literature on the outcome of dengue virus infections during chromium toxicity, therefore, this book is based on the experimental attempts which has been made to answer the some basic questions related to pathogenesis of dengue virus infections during chromium toxicity like What are the effects of subtoxic dose of Cr (VI) on the peripheral blood cells of mice during dengue virus infection? Does Cr (VI) toxicity enhance the ill effects of DV on splenic macrophage and lymphocyte functions? Can the cells of immune system detoxify Cr (VI)? etc.

Rheumatic Fever And Rheumatic Heart Diseases In Children

Acute rheumatic fever (ARF) is an inflammatory disease of childhood that occurs following untreated group A streptococcal pharyngeal infections. Although it is well established that group A streptococcus is the sole etiologic agent of ARF, the pathogenesis and immune mechanisms are still not completely understood. In the pediatric population, ARF is the most common cause of acquired heart disease worldwide. This multi-systemic disorder can affect the heart, joints, skin and with the exception of the central nervous system, usually develops within 3 weeks after the preceding acute group A streptococcal pharyngitis. ARF remains highly prevalent in developing nations where crowding, poor hygiene and limited access to health care persist. Acute rheumatic fever and chronic rheumatic heart disease (RHD) are the most common rheumatic disease in children and young adults and remains a major public health problem in the developing countries, with high occurrence, while in developed countries the occurrence is very low. ARF is still the predominant form of morbidity among children in the developing countries.

Mechanisms underlying cannabis effects on the brain Mechanisms underlying cannabis effects on the brain Новинка

Mechanisms underlying cannabis effects on the brain

Cannabinoid system regulates synaptic transmission in different brain regions. In this work, we study by electrophysiological techniques the effect of cannabinoids on the locus coeruleus (LC) and the dorsal raphe nucleus (DRN), the main noradrenergic and serotonergic nuclei in the central nervous system, respectively. These nuclei play a crucial role in the control of pain, mood,learning/memory, sleep-wake cycle, arousal and rewarding behavior. We demonstrate that cannabinoids alter the firing activity of LC cells and regulate glutamatergic system in this nucleus. We also describe how cannabinoids modulate GABAergic system in the DRN. In summary, our work shows that cannabinoids affect the neurons of the LC and DRN by a complex mechanism. The data of this study could explain why cannabis consumption results in a disruption of attention.

Developmental-like responses in injured mature central neurons

Developing effective therapeutic strategies for the injured central nervous system to treat such conditions as spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and stroke, is one of the major challenges in current neuroscience and clinical neurology research. Increasing evidence suggests that after trauma, central neurons acquire certain developmental-like characteristics. Thus, the vast amount of data available on neuronal development could be utilized in trauma research as well. However, the data on the developmental-like properties of mature injured neurons has not been extensively summarized. This book provides a comprehensive review on the topic with the special focus on neurotrophin signalling, post-traumatic chloride homeostasis and the thyroid hormones. The review is followed by the presentation of the novel data on the interconnection of the reviewed areas and the impact of this interplay on neuronal survival.

Study on Dengue Spread in Lahore, Pakistan

Dengue is an infectious disease caused by a virus. You can get it if an infected mosquito bites you. It is common in warm, wet areas of the world. Outbreaks happen in the rainy season. Most people with dengue recover within 2 weeks. However, some dengue infections are severe and cause bleeding from your nose, gums or under your skin. Severe dengue can also cause massive bleeding and shock, which is life threatening. Early diagnosis and treatment of dengue is critical as epidemics of the disease become larger and more frequent. An estimated 50 to 100 million people are infected with dengue each year in over 100 countries. In severe cases, people infected with dengue may experience severe bleeding, shock and death. Severe dengue is often treated with aggressive emergency treatment, which includes fluid and electrolyte replacement. Prompt treatment can be lifesaving. Dengue can be prevented by limiting exposure to the mosquitoes that carry the virus.

Farmers’ perception about usefulness of agriculture extension system

Agricultural extension system is the central mechanism in the agricultural development process, both in terms of technology transfer and resource development. The development of agriculture is mostly depending upon agricultural extension system. Looking to the prevailing extension system, it is felt that there is a wide gap exist between available agricultural technology and its adoption on farmers field. Perception can be defined as a process by which individual organize and interpret their sensory impressions in order to give meaning to other environment. Therefore, At present various extension education programme are being implemented by State and Central Government, non-Government Organization and State Agricultural Universities and Private agencies. The success or failure of the extension system depend upon how far its clients perceived the same. The perception plays an important role for success or failure of extension system. In this investigation an attempt is made to know the perception of respondents about usefulness of extension system. This Book is specially provide in formation about the farmers and govt. Gujarat programmed and its effectiveness.

Cell Cycle Control, Cell Fate Decisions and the Central Nervous System

Development of the central nervous system remains under strict control of the cell cycle. Spatial and temporal onset and completion of both neuro- and gliogenesis are regulated by several cell cycle proteins. Importantly, proteins comprising G1 phase regulatory network are involved in the control of stemness and/or lineage commitment balance in the pools of neural stem cells throughout the development. Deviation from this balance may lead to aberrant changes in cell division resulting in formation of brain tumour initiating cells (BTICs) which are at the source of human glioblastoma. This book provides a brief review of the cell cycle regulation at the embryonic and postnatal stages of neural development. Based on recent literature, a discussion on the role of G1 phase cyclins, cell cycle inhibitors and a novel cell cycle regulator, Spy1, in neural cell fate decisions, including mode of division and brain tumour formation, is provided in detail. The content of this book will aid in understanding how normal neural cells rely on cell cycle to control their growth and differentiation throughout life and how aberrant changes to certain cell cycle proteins contribute to gliomagenesis

Qsar studies NPY Y1 antagonists for the treatment of obesity

Obesity is one of the most serious public health problems of the 21st century, increasing prevalence in adults and children [1]. The central nervous system (CNS) [2] has developed an interconnected circuitry to keep us fed and in an sufficient nutritional state. One of these results is that an energy-dense environment favors the development of obesity. Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is a 36 amino acid peptide which is widely distributed in both the central nervous system and in peripheral neurones and has a range of biological actions such as control of food intake and body weight. In recent year, there have been many researches with NPY receptor subtypes (Y1, Y2, Y4, Y5 and Y6) to treat human obesity in literature. In this study, quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR) studies have been performed with a series of carbazole derivatives [6] as NPY Y1 antagonists (Figure 1) to elucidate the role of NPY Y1 receptor and evaluate the potential of such agents to treat obesity in man. I would like to thank Natalia Tutelea for her help and support and LAP LAMBERT Academic Publishing for converting my study into a book.
Exogenous Oxytocin in Lactation: Impact on Hormones and Milk Exogenous Oxytocin in Lactation: Impact on Hormones and Milk Новинка

Exogenous Oxytocin in Lactation: Impact on Hormones and Milk

Oxytocin is a neurohormone produced in the hypothalamus that acts primarily as a neuromodulator in the brain and central nervous system. Oxytocin is synthesized in many organs other than nervous system that included the pancreas, thymus, adrenal gland, testis and ovary, and is known to exert paracrine function in these tissues. It is released in the systemic circulation to exert multiple central and peripheral functions, including milk ejection during lactation, uterine smooth muscle contraction during labour, control of social and sexual behaviours, regulation of natriuresis and control of cardiovascular homeostasis. This book focuses on the use of oxytocin in dairy practice, where oxytocin injections are administered to cattle before milking to cure disturbed milk ejection caused by reduced oxytocin release. Oxytocin is administered at supraphysiological dose to facilitate removal of residual milk. This book demonstrates the effects of regular administration of oxytocin on animal physiology, milk composition, plasma cortisol and insulin; and will add new research and knowledge to the hazardous effects of oxytocin that it contributes to the lactating animals.

Low Carbon Strawcrete Low Carbon Strawcrete Новинка

Low Carbon Strawcrete

Adobe, a traditional material of South Central Chile, has been questioned after the 2010 Chilean earthquake. An alternative material using combinations of straw and concrete in different proportions offer a structural solution and the possibility to manage its thermal properties (insulation or thermal capacity). The concrete allows higher amounts of straw in the mix, with the resulting environmental benefit and revealing its aesthetic without the risk associated with exposure. A rural town hit by the earthquake is the scenario to develop a modular “Strawcrete” kit for self-built application. The outcome of the “Strawcrete” kit achieves a fast and easy construction system including local handcraft techniques. The project considers a social housing community that incorporates crops related to local artisanal practices and products as an opportunity to develop and create a new identity for the community.
The Impact of Euroization on Business Development in Kosovo The Impact of Euroization on Business Development in Kosovo Новинка

The Impact of Euroization on Business Development in Kosovo

In order to enhance the overall business environment and increase the trade, governments must engage in developing effective framework of monetary policies. With the adoption of the Euro in 2002, Kosovo delegated its monetary policy to European level leaders through the European Central Bank (ECB) and the European System of Central Banks (ESCB). This step was easily justified at the time of the introduction of the Euro, as until 1999 Kosovo was part of the former Yugoslav monetary system and used Dinar as its currency, which experienced high rate of inflation and instability, particularly during the 90s. The research analyzes the extent to which Euroization has affected the business sector development of Kosovo.

Heart Rate and Blood Pressure Variability: Baroreflex Regulation

The central hypothesis tested in this thesis is that heart rate and blood pressure are by-products of the control loops in the cardiovascular system. Two complementary approaches were used in investigating this issue: I. Analyses of data obtained from patients undergoing carotid surgery, during which perturbations to the baroreceptors cause fluctuations in heart rate and blood pressure; 2. Design and analysis of a control model of the cardiovascular system with its autonomic and baroreflex regulation.
World Economic Crisis and the Operational Efficiency of Central Banks World Economic Crisis and the Operational Efficiency of Central Banks Новинка

World Economic Crisis and the Operational Efficiency of Central Banks

Many central banks, especially central banks of the developed countries played critical role during the crisis in maintaining financial stability and supported macroeconomic policy of the government. Hence, these two goals got specific weight and importance in the central banks regulation, certainly without jeopardizing the main goal - maintenance price stability. In order to accomplish these goals central banks might have very high level of independence, transparency and accountability which are certainly the base of its efficient management and governance. Considering these facts, the question we try to elaborate is whether central banks taking other objectives, besides its basic objective - maintaining price stability, are "forced", in some way, to reduce its level of operational efficiency, which means larger volume of human, financial and technical costs. This book may be useful to professionals in central banks and universities, or anyone interested in macroeconomics and central banking.
Neopopulism and the Ozal Decade: Its Implications for Democracy Neopopulism and the Ozal Decade: Its Implications for Democracy Новинка

Neopopulism and the Ozal Decade: Its Implications for Democracy

This book examines the Ozal decade through the lens of populism and scrutinizes the manifestations of this neoliberal populist governance style on the economic, discursive, and institutional levels in a detailed manner. Throughout these analyses, the book contextualizes the neopopulist manifestations of the period within the general framework of Turkey's overall experiment with populism. In addition to comparing and contrasting Ozal's neopopulist governance style with that of his populist predecessors and demarcating its parallels and distinctions from the characteristics of populism carried out in the previous periods in the Turkish context, it situates Ozal's governance practice within a broader and worldwide framework through the analysis of manifestations of neoliberal populism in Latin America. This analysis reveals that Turkey is a typical case study with its neopopulist governance practices. Within the framework of the detailed search of the fundamental manifestations of Ozal's neopopulist governance style at different levels, it is argued that this governance style had adverse implications for the quality of democracy in Turkey.

Cancer imposes daunting effects on the nervous system Brain cancer is one of the most devastating diagnoses a physician can deliver. Cancer of the nervous system can take many different forms. Treatment is specific to the type of malignancy, its location in the nervous system and, increasingly, its molecular characteristics. The challenges manifest further when management choices need to be made, and multidisciplinary approaches are required. Additional complexities arise in children, where the developing neurological system requires more sensitive treatment. Neuro-oncology unmasks the complexities to provide a straightforward guide to cancers of the nervous system. Following a general approach to diagnosis and treatment, the clinical aspects of specific cancer types in adults and children are explained in practical terms. A final section considers the effect of system cancer on the nervous system and the side effects of treatment. Clinical in approach, practical in execution, Neuro-oncology will help you diagnose and manage your patients more effectively. Neurology in Practice Series Editors Robert A Gross , MD, PhD, Department of Neurology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA Jonathan W Mink, MD, PhD, Department of Neurology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA The Neurology in Practice series provides clinical 'in the office' or 'at the bedside' guides to effective patient care for neurologists. The tone is practical, not academic, with authors offering guidance on what might be done and what should be avoided. The books are informed by evidence-based practice and feature: Algorithms and guidelines where they are appropriate 'Tips and Tricks' boxes – hints on improving outcomes 'Caution' warning boxes – hints on avoiding complications 'Science Revisited' – quick reminder of the basic science principles Summaries of key evidence and suggestions for further reading
