Sensitive determination of paracetamol using a graphene-modified carbon- paste electrode

The electrochemical behavior of paracetamol was investigated at a graphene - modified carbon paste electrode by cyclic voltammetry in an ammonium buffer solution (pH 8.5). The modified electrode showed excellent electrocatalytic activity towards the oxidation and reduction of paracetamol resulting in a remarkable lowering of the peak potentials and considerable improvement of the peak currents as compared to the bare...

A pilot study of the efficacy of diclofenac suppository and intramuscular morphine for relieving the post-cesarean pain

A proper post-cesarean section (CS) pain relieving method results in early mobilization and better early maternal–fetal interaction. Many different methods have already been suggested for analgesic purposes after CS delivery. The known standard method is the intramuscular injection of morphine; however, in our medical center, administration of the diclofenac suppository has been the practice of choice. The aim of...

Neostigmine modulates tularemia progression in BALB/c mice

Neostigmine is a pseudo-irreversible inhibitor of enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE). We hypothesized link between neostigmine and cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway via better availability of blood acetylcholine after AChE inhibition and consequent activation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Owing to the expected mechanism of action, we expect significant impact of neostigmine on immunity. In the reported...

Patterns of drugs prescribed concomitantly with levothyroxine in children with hypothyroidism

The aim of this work was to know the prescription pattern of drugs for the treatment of concomitant pathologies in children with hypothyroidism, who were receiving levothyroxine, so as to identify drugs with possible interaction risk and avoid the production of adverse effects. An analysis of treatments in children diagnosed of hypothyroidism treated with levothyroxine and medicines added for the treatment of...

Simultaneous high-performance liquid chromatography determination of paracetamol and ascorbic acid in tablet dosage forms

A simple, specific, precise and accurate reversed phase liquid chromatographic (RP-LC) method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of paracetamol and ascorbic acid in tablet dosage form. The chromatographic separation was achieved on a LiChrosorb C18, 250 mm × 4.6 mm, 5 μm column at a detector wavelength of 254 nm and a flow rate of 1.0 ml min-1. The mobile phase was 1 mM sodium pentane...
