Why doctors consider drugs like ( rifampicin & isoniazid) as risk factor of metabolic syndrome?

Metab syndrome: An insulin-sensitizing agent, such as metformin, is often used as hyperglycemia treatment in patients with metabolic syndrome. Literature suggests that metformin may help to reverse the pathophysiologic changes of metabolic syndrome. Cannot find any evidence that Rifampin is a risk factor for metabolic syndrome. ...Read more

Femara (letrozole) is metabolized in liver by cytochrome p450 system. Astaxanthin says "use cautiously w drugs metabolized by liver's cytochrome p450 enzyme system; does this mean don't use astaxanthin w femara (letrozole)?

Femara (letrozole) is metabolized in liver by cytochrome p450 system. Astaxanthin says "use cautiously w drugs metabolized by liver's cytochrome p450 enzyme system; does this mean don't use astaxanthin w femara (letrozole)?

Not necesarilly but: Virtually all drugs are metabolized by cytochrome p450 enzymes.Astaxanthin can stimulate these, so it could lead to lower blood levels of "certain drugs" according to http://www.Naturalmedicinejournal.Com/article_content.Asp?Article=293. I no of no evidence that Femara (letrozole) is one of the drugs it interacts with. Small amounts of astaxanthin are unlikely to have much effect.Ask the doc who prescribed it. ...Read more

Is there HIV drug resistance to protease inhibitors?

Is there HIV drug resistance to protease inhibitors?

Yes: The HIV mutates frequently, and when a mutation produces resistance to protease inhibitors this will allow that form of the virus to multiply over other forms which are sensitive. That is one of the reasons for a drug combination which makes single mutational changes less likely to be favorable to the virus. ...Read more

How to measure anti-dna antibody using farr assay?

How to measure anti-dna antibody using farr assay?

Radioactivity: The farr assay is a radioimmunologic assay. It uses radiolabeled antigens to detect specific antibodies in serum. The antigens are allowed to react with the serum and then precipitated using a special reagent such as protein a sepharose beads. The bound radiolabeled immunoprecipitiate is commonly analzyed by gel electrophoresis. ...Read more

Can taking bovine colostrum increase plasma immunoglobulin levels, thereby masking an underlying immunoglobulin deficiency by altering blood tests?

Can taking bovine colostrum increase plasma immunoglobulin levels, thereby masking an underlying immunoglobulin deficiency by altering blood tests?

Unlikely: Very thoughtful idea. Unfortunately, the bovine immunoglobins are too large to be absorbed from the intestine and would be digested by stomach and intestinal juices and enzymes. With use you would be providing body with raw materials for making your own immunoglobulins, but at a cost. Any "complete" proteins from eggs or milk could provide the same protein precursors and support good health. ...Read more

Hydroxyprogesterone hexanoate is androgen precursor with elimination half-life 7.8 d,for an injection 5ml of 250 mg/mL what is such androgenic effect?

Hydroxyprogesterone hexanoate is androgen precursor with elimination half-life 7.8 d,for an  injection 5ml of 250 mg/mL what is such androgenic effect?

A Hairy Proposition: In women, excess amounts of androgens can cause such "virilizing" effects as acne, hirsutism (excess hair growth in "inappropriate" places, like the chin or upper lip) and thinning hair. Long-time use is associated with serious health consequences, such as insulin resistance and diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease. It all sounds like lots of fun, doesn't it? ...Read more

Glimepride or metformin sustained release? Which anti diabetic tablet is safer for stage 2 renal disease (diabetic nephropathy)

Glimepride or metformin sustained release? Which anti diabetic tablet is safer for stage 2 renal disease (diabetic nephropathy)

Caution: Metformin is contraindicated as renal function declines. Glimepiride is ok, but all such agents are more potent as renal function falls since Insulin is metabolized by the kidney and Insulin levels may persist at a higher level with renal disease. Night time hypoglycemia is more common w/renal disease so monitor carefully. ...Read more

HIV 1&2 antibody production can get delayed by factors like immunity, medications, other diseases, treatments etc..Same is applicable to P24 antigens?

HIV 1&2 antibody production can get delayed by factors like immunity, medications, other diseases, treatments etc..Same is applicable to P24 antigens?

Conclusive at 4 wk: Your opening statement is mistaken: HIV antibody development is NOT delayed by any known immune problems, medications, etc. The antibody-only HIV tests always are conclusive by 6-8 weeks after exposure. If somehow antibody were delayed, p24 antigen would appear sooner, not later. The Ag-Ab (4th generation) HIV tests therefore are ALWAYS 100% conclusive any time 4 weeks or more after catching HIV. ...Read more
