Exfoliative Dermatitis Secondary to Acute Generalized Pustular Psoriasis in a Child: A Case Report

Posted on Updated on

Psoriasis is a T-lymphocyte mediated inflammatory skin disease which is seen in children. Infantile psoriasis is rare and accounts for only 3.5%-16% of childhood psoriasis.

Acute Generalized Pustular Psoriasis

General pustular psoriasis (GPP), an extremely rare form of psoriasis first described in 1910 by Leo Ritter von Zumbusch, is characterized by an abrupt onset of widespread erythematous lesions followed by superficial yellowish, usually confluent sterile pustules, accompanied by constitutional symptoms such as fatigue and fever. Four clinical patterns of pustular psoriasis have been described: von Zumbusch, also known as generalized (GPP), annular (APP), exanthematic, and localized. A mixed variant (MPP), demonstrating features of both the von Zumbusch and annular patterns, has also been described. Pustular psoriasis (PP) is a severe form of psoriasis and is extremely rare during the first decade of life. Only 1.0% to 5.4% of children have pustular psoriasis. Early diagnosis with appropriate treatment is necessary to prevent the affected infants from severe complications, such as bacterial superinfection, dehydration, and sepsis.

Impact of economic variables on Karachi stock exchange

Posted on Updated on

The impact of selected major variables on stock return of the Pakistani emerging capital market is inclined by transforming the major economic variables. The three major economic variables of the Karachi stock exchange are foreign direct investment, foreign rate and inflation. While estimating and correlating the regression model experts recommended the Ordinary Least Square (OLS). This whole process result had become a significant negative impact on inflation and foreign direct investment of Karachi stock exchange.

Stock exchange

The key determination of the present research is to examine the impact of selected major variables on stock return of the Pakistani emerging capital market Karachi Stock Exchange. The researches display that capital market is inclined by transform in major economic variables. This study observes impact of three major economic variables i.e. foreign direct investment, foreign exchange rate and inflation at Karachi stock exchange. The monthly data of ten years practice in this study.

The Increasing Relevance of FTIR Spectroscopy in Biomedicine

Posted on Updated on

Research into the utilization of FTIR based spectroscopic methods has been going on for close to about 25 years with the field expanding from the initial days of cancer diagnosis to now where it includes various diseases occurring due to pathogens, genetic and environmental factors as well as lifestyle and age related factors. In parallel there have been developments in terms of both instrumentation sophistication and computational methods, to make it more clinically appealing while increasing the sensitivity and specificity of the technique. As the field has diversified over the years, a few reports are highlighted that establish the growing acceptance of FTIR spectroscopy as a reliable technique in both basic and applied research in the field of biomedicine.

FTIR Spectroscopy in Biomedicine

The field of IR based diagnosis emerged with the validations that carcinogenic and normal tissues from various organs could be differentiated based on their absorbance in the IR region (mostly mid-IR) that was related to the alteration in the chemical composition. The concept of unique fingerprinting was subsequently well established with studies from many different laboratories reporting that each cell or tissue type ranging from microbial cell to complex human tissues have characteristic absorbance spectrum.

Medical Nanotechnology: Small Technology and Big Impact in Oncology

Posted on Updated on

Nowadays, cancer remains one of the main causes of death in the world. The utilization of nanoparticles for diagnosis and treatment in all cancers has raised research interest and funding in the area of medical nanotechnology. The daily increasing numbers of publications in nanotechnology report various promising applications from approaches that include nano-drug and gene delivery, molecular targeting, photo thermal and photodynamic therapy, as well as magnetic localization/imaging, which are undoubtedly all important in oncology.

Medical Nanotechnology

Indeed, challenging issues in cancer care include more precise/accurate, efficient, faster and earlier diagnosis, prognosis and therapy. Cancer nanotechnology offers solutions that could identify and target more effectively and specifically cancer cells by delivering nano-drugs with lower undesired side-effects such as systemic toxicity than conventional medicines and agents (e.g., isotopes, dyes)

Pathology of Entrepreneurship Training in Iran

Posted on

Not a long time that entrepreneurship training has found its place in Iran. Hence, not many researches have been performed on efficiency and damages facing entrepreneurship training. Present study tries to review damages facing entrepreneurship training from viewpoint of entrepreneurship professors and teachers. Semi-structured interviews have been used to collect data, and content analysis has been used to analyze data. The results indicate that following factors are the most important factors which affect entrepreneurship training in Iran: Lack of heart trust in necessity and importance of entrepreneurship in comprehensive development, lack of trained professors, and lack of experience of Iranian entrepreneurs.

Pathology of Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is important as a main element in development acceleration of developing countries and development continuity of industrial developed countries. Entrepreneurship approach used in majority of countries in recent decades, has resulted in creation of some entrepreneurship development policies, which eventually leads to development of entrepreneurship culture, support to entrepreneurs, presenting required trainings and performing related studies CRDC. According to the role and significance of entrepreneurship and glorious experience of entrepreneurs in development of many countries, and considering many financial problems our country face, distribution of entrepreneurship culture, infrastructure to support entrepreneurship culture is vital for all nations specially developing countries such as Iran

Prevention of Scar

Posted on Updated on

ScarPartial irreversible electroporation—comprised of the repeated delivery of pulsed electric fields—is a new non-invasive, non-heat generating technology that may reduce the development of scars after burns and other traumatic injuries, and is currently under investigation by researchers at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA. Most recently, they have found that repeated treatments reduced scarring following burn injuries as well as removed excess skin cells in an animal model of burn injuries.

Lung exercise

Posted on Updated on

A lunge can refer to any position of the human body where one leg is positioned forward with knee bent and foot flat on the ground while the other leg is positioned behind. It is used by athletes in cross-training for sports, by weight-trainers as a fitness exercise, and by yogis as part of an asana regimen. Lunges are a good exercise for strengthening, sculpting and building several muscles/muscle groups, including the quadriceps (or thighs), the gluteus maximus (or buttocks) as well as the hamstrings.

lung excercise

A long lunge emphasizes the use of the gluteals whereas a short lunge emphasizes the quadriceps. The lunge is a basic movement that is fairly simple to do for beginner athletes. A lunge can be performed using bodyweight alone. However, weight trainers may seek to increase the difficulty using either dumbbells or kettle bells held in each hand, or a barbell held atop the neck and shoulders. Grip strength may be an issue with the dumbbell lunge so practitioners may prefer the barbell lunge. As a variation, plyometric lunges (also known as split squat jumps) can be performed by jumping explosively between lunge positions.
