Smoking is an extremely lethal act and is associated with many illnesses. Lately, major concerns that passive smokers face the same health risks as (if not higher than) active smokers have been raised. Some studies have shown that active smoking is associated with low serum levels of vitamins and testosterone. Read More

Context: Brain metastasis is one of the most feared complications of cancer that poses significant mortality and morbidity in patients with advanced cancer. The incidence is rising because of greater use of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy; and increased survival from recent advances in immunotherapy and modern radiotherapy techniques. Despite all, the prognosis remains poor. Read More

Background: Acid suppression has been associated with adverse events; such as, enteric infections. Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are frequently prescribed in patients with cirrhosis, but is unclear if PPI are associated with the development of bacterial infections in these patients.
Objective: To assess the impact of PPI intake on the development of bacterial, viral and fungal infections in patients with cirrhosis. Read More

Purpose: Two distinguishable subclades of H5N1 (classic and variant strains) are cocirculating among the poultry populations in Egypt despite the intensive vaccination programs. A study to investigate the genetic relationship between avian influenza virus (AIV) isolates from backyard chickens in Sharkia (2009-2011), subclades, and commercially available vaccines was carried out.
Methods: Forty-eight suspected AIV infected birds were clinically examined and used for virus isolation followed by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Read More

The expression pattern of two metallothionein (MT) genes in response to temperature shock and exposure to Cd(2+) was investigated in the brain of common carp ( Cyprinus carpio ), in whole-animal experiments. The changes in the levels of MT-1 and MT-2 mRNA in the olfactory lobe, midbrain and cerebellum were followed by semiquantitative RT-PCR. The inducibility of the two MT genes was brain region and stressor-specific. Read More
