Comparative plasma phenylalanine and glutamate profiles in scalded rats treated with Mebo or Copper (I) Nicotinate Complex.

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2018 Dec;31(4):329-334

Assiut University, Assiut, Egypt.

The time profile of total proteins and albumin in line with two amino acids, Phe and Glu, are of great importance due to their indicative value of the healing and/or deterioration of burn wounds. In this experiment, rats exposed to scalding that produced a second-degree burn were divided into four groups: control, placebo, MEBO ointment, and copper (I) nicotinate complex ointment (an antioxidant anti-inflammatory) for four weeks. The three treatments showed noticeable similarities in the Phe profiles, with a slight drop 24 hours post burn, a peak elevation by the second week, and a slight, insignificant decline by the third week, with the placebo group showing highest values over normal (P< 0.

Improvements in critical care have reduced mortality resulting from severe burns, which may affect the predictive strength of older models. We conducted a cross-validation study on all burn patients (n = 114) with TBSA greater than 20%, admitted to the Arizona Burn Center between 2014 and 2016. Read More

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2018 Jun;31(2):83-88

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Burns, Faculty of Medicine, Tanta University, Egypt.

Burns are considered mostly a serious illness with devastating consequences and prolonged length of hospital stay. Moreover, burns are among the traumatic lesions with the highest costs for care due to their hospitalization time, treatment required and the need for rehabilitation therapy. This study aims to evaluate the factors affecting length of hospital stay and mortality rates in acute burn patients. Read More

Cipto Mangunkusumo General National Hospital, Jakarta, Indonesia.

Management of burn patients is challenging, and requires a lot of knowledge and experience gained through research. However, experimental study on humans is not morally and ethically accepted. Porcine is the most frequently used experimental model because pig skin is anatomically and physiologically similar to human skin. Read More
