    What is Bacidal?

    Sulfamethoxazole (Bacidal) and Trimethoprim (Bacidal) combination is used to treat infections such as urinary tract infections, middle ear infections (otitis media), bronchitis, traveler’s diarrhea, and shigellosis (bacillary dysentery). Sulfamethoxazole (Bacidal) and Trimethoprim (Bacidal) is also used to prevent or treat Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia or Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP), a very serious kind of pneumonia. This type of pneumonia occurs more commonly in patients whose immune systems are not working normally, such as cancer patients, transplant patients, and patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Sulfamethoxazole (Bacidal) and Trimethoprim (Bacidal) combination is an antibiotic. It works by eliminating the bacteria that cause many kinds of infections. Sulfamethoxazole (Bacidal) and Trimethoprim (Bacidal) will not work…

    Treat headache with Poligot

    Polygot is used for migraine pain. Orally, 1-2 tablets 2 times a day during a headache attack, then 1 tablet 2-3 times a day for several days (up to 1 month). Maximum single dose is 2 tablets, daily dose – 4 tablets. It is not recommended to use Polygot for a long time (to avoid ergotism): after 7 days of use in cases that require longer treatment, a break is made (for 3-4 days). Headache in general and migraine in particular is one of the most common ailments. The WHO estimates that between 50 and 75% of the able-bodied population of the world have experienced headache during the last year.…

    Methods of laboratory diagnostics of infectious diseases. Diagnostics of anemia

    Infections are caused mainly by the following types of microorganisms: bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa. Their detection is a reliable sign of the infection process.The laboratory has an arsenal of methods, but only 5 of them are the most widely used: Cultural method (sowing method) Identifies a pure culture of the pathogen. The method is reduced to the fact that the resulting material (smear from the mucous membrane, blood, pus, feces, etc.) is sown to nutrient media. Environments may contain different components. But the essence comes down to the following: microorganisms must give growth and colonies. If there is a growth of pathogenic microorganisms, their sensitivity to drugs: antibiotics and bacteriophages…

    Immunological research

    Immunological tests – diagnostic methods based on specific interaction of antigens and antibodies. Important information obtained through the use of immunological methods can significantly reduce the time of analysis, with high specificity to carry out screening, prediction and diagnosis of diseases. Immunological tests are used for highly sensitive assessment of biochemical features of the body by detecting the concentration of specific proteins, hormones, antibodies, study of molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis of various diseases. Department of Laboratory Diagnostics Immunological tests are referred to: Identification of markers of agents of social infections (hepatitis B and C, syphilis, HIV)Hepatitis viruses are a group of infectious diseases caused by various hepatotropic viruses and are…

    Biochemical method and molecular genetic method of diagnosis

    Biochemical method Many congenital metabolic disorders are caused by various enzyme defects resulting from mutations that change their structure. The use of modern biochemical methods allow to determine any metabolites specific to a specific hereditary disease. The subject of modern biochemical diagnostics are specific metabolites, enzymopathy, various proteins. Objects of biochemical analysis can be urine, sweat, plasma and serum. For biochemical diagnostics, both simple qualitative reactions and more precise methods are used. For example, a thin layer chromatography of urine and blood can be used to diagnose metabolic disorders of amino acids, oligosaccharides, mucopolysaccharides. Gas chromatography is used to detect metabolic disorders of organic acids. Biochemical methods are also used…

    Asthma classification

    Dr. Denis Slinkin states: The many factors mentioned in the asthma classification are intended to take into account the peculiarities of the current and facilitate the choice of drugs for basic therapy. It is logical to identify criteria in the asthma classification such as etiology, severity and level of control, and the period of illness.Allergic and non-allergic forms of BA are distinguished, which are characterized by specific clinical and immunological features.  In non-allergic variant allergic antibodies are not detected during examination, there is a low level of serum immunoglobulin E (IgE), there is no other evidence of involvement of immunological mechanisms of type I in the pathogenesis of the disease.…
