Metformin new drug for the brain

Metformin may be useful in stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and other conditions involving injured or degenerating brain cells. Animal studies showed that metformin activates a key pathway (aPKC–CBP) that promotes neurogenesis and enhanced hippocampus–dependent spatial memory formation in study animals. Results also showed that the drug has similar activity on human neural precursors, increasing the likelihood that it might enhance neurogenesis in the human brain as well, according to the study authors from the University of Toronto and Hospital for Sick Children (HSC) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, published in July 5 in Cell Stem Cell.

There’s growing evidence that neural stem cells play a role in repair of the injured or degenerating brain, and that if adult neural stems cells could be recruited, this might provide a novel therapeutic strategy.

An alternative to growth factors are small molecules that promote stem cell self–renewal and/or differentiation by defining relevant signaling pathways. Previous research showed that the CREB–binding protein (CBP) maximizes embryonic neural precursor cell development, and that this protein is activated by atypical protein kinase C (aPKC).

In liver cells, this aPKC–CBP pathway is activated by metformin, which suggests that this drug might activate aPKCs in neural stem cells, and by doing so may recruit adult neural precursors and enhance neural function.
Compared with mice given a control substance, those treated with metformin had about a third more new neurons in the hippocampus and almost double the number of new neurons produced by stem cells.

My Profession My Concern

Updates in Fight against PNTD Amendment

Central Government has made amendments to PCPNDT act vide notification dated 04.06.2012.

These amendments prohibit radiologists to move in more than 2 centres that too within one district only, compelling them to specify hours of consultation, hiked registration fees around 10 times and compelling to inform authorities at least 30 days advance any change in employee, place or address.

1. Dr. Tajeev Vasant Zankar obtained ad-interim relief from the Hon’ble Bombay High Court on 20.7.2012, which read as: there shall be ad–interim stay of the operation of the following rule inserted by the Pre–conception and Pre–natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Amendment Rules, 2012 at Exhibit "C" to the petition:– "(3) Each medical practitioner qualified under the Act to conduct ultrasonography in a genetic clinic/ultrasound clinic/imaging centre shall be permitted to be registered with a maximum of two such clinics/centres within a district. The consulting hours for such medical practitioner, shall be clearly specified by each clinic/centre". It is clarified that the specifications of consulting hours shall not prohibit such medical practitioners, when the medical exigency so require, from attending the concerned clinic/centre at other times also.

2. IRIA also had filed a case in Delhi High Court: Writ Petition (Civil) No. 4009 of 2012, which came for hearing on Monday 23rd July before Divisional Bench of Chief Justice. The Government counsel Additional Solicitor General, Rajeev Mehra said that some stay over the said directives have been obtained by some member of IRIA on 20.7.12, hence matter should be adjourned till court gets copy of judgment in Dr Rajeev Vasant Zankar Vs Union of India.

The counsel for IRIA argued that the petition in Bombay High Court was only about 4 clinics of Dr Zankar. Only first part of the notification has been stayed, which states that one radiologist cannot go to more than 2 places.

IRIA counsel argued that more serious part of the notification, which yet need to be stayed is that contrary to earlier where Rule 13 of PNDT act permitted change in employee, person or place by any registered centre, which could be updated anytime up to 30 days by the authorities now, any registered centre must compulsorily intimate 30 days advance of such expected change and such change must be incorporated within the registration certificate.

Court seemed to get convinced by IRIA counsel and asked Central Government counsel to answer this query of IRIA counsel after lunch. After lunch the pdf copy of order of Bombay High Court: Dr Zankar Vs UOI was shown to the judges.

The Central Government Counsel started with firm assertion that he will not be able to argue without Judgment of Bombay High Court. Since IRIA did not have copy of Bombay High Court Judgment, IRIA counsel read the judgment from the Laptop. The laptop was then passed on to the Honorable Divisional Bench and Both Honorable Judges.

The Honorable Court was of opinion that if recent amendments were allowed to sustain then instead of curtailing male: female sex ratio, the entire Ultrasound service of the nation will get affected.

Central Government Counsel said that it is not prohibited that any registered centre could not have multiple USG machines or could not have multiple radiologists.

Honorable Court further amended the central government notification as:

1) To buy a new machine 7 days notice to appropriate authority is sufficient instead of at least 30 days and permission/incorporation of the new machine in certificate of registration is not required. New machine can easily be bought after lapse of 7 days notice.

2) In case of hiring new radiologists no advance notice is required. One can inform within 7 days of hiring new radiologists.

Govt launches anti–ragging website

NEW DELHI: The government on Thursday launched an anti–ragging website helping students of universities, colleges and professional institutes lodge online complaints against ragging or harassment and seek faster response. The portal (www.antiragging.in) launched by HRD minister Kapil Sibal is also expected to maintain a database of students and will be connected to most universities by year–end. Sibal said, "Lot of young students have lost their lives, many loose their confidence because of this practice…Through this facility we want to ensure that culprits get strict punishment." The UGC–managed portal has been developed in active collaboration with Rajendra Kachroo, father of Aman who lost his life to ragging at a medical college in Himachal in 2009. According to Kachroo, medical colleges continue to have a disproportionately large number of complaints emanating from them. Students can also register their complaint by dialing 18001805522 as part of the facility, which will be followed up in a structured software system. "The complaints would be examined. If they are of serious magnitude, they would be transferred quickly to the police, the magistrate and head of the institution," said UGC acting chairman Ved Prakash. (Source: TOI, Jul 27, 2012)

Integrase inhibitors work equally well

After 96 weeks of therapy, an investigational once-daily integrase inhibitor remained non–inferior to the first drug in its class, a researcher reported. In patients with a history of HIV treatment, elvitegravir and twice–daily raltegravir (Isentress), both combined with two other agents, were equally capable of suppressing the virus, according to Richard Elion, MD, of Whitman–Walker Health. And there were no important differences in safety or tolerability, Elion told an oral session at the International AIDS Conference. (Source: Medpage Today)

Yoga steadies stroke victims

A yoga–based rehabilitation workout may help improve balance following stroke, a pilot randomized study found. At 8 weeks, the yoga group showed significant progress in static and dynamic balance, as assessed by the 14–item Berg Balance Scale (mean score of 40 versus 47, P<0.001), reported Arlene A. Schmid, PhD, OTR, from the Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis, and colleagues. In contrast, the controls who underwent usual rehab care had less improvement in balance (mean score of 41 versus 43, P=0.06), according to the study published online in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association. A score of 46 or less indicates a risk of falling. (Source: Medpage Today)

FDA greenlights first robotic PCI system

The FDA has approved the first robotic–assisted percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) system, the CorPath 200, according to manufacturer Corindus Vascular Robotics. The 510(k) clearance by the FDA comes on the strength of the PRECISE trial, a prospective, single–arm, multicenter study whose results were presented in May at the annual meeting of the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI). Of the 162 procedures performed with the robotic technology in PRECISE, only two cases had to be converted to manual stent implantation –– and the fault was not that of the robotic system, Giora Weisz, MD, of Columbia University Medical Center in New York City, reported at the time.

18 a critical age in HIV care

Once they turned 18 and had to transition from pediatric to adult care, some HIV–infected adolescents abandoned treatment altogether, researchers found. Among 120 patients at 13 clinics, 10% were lost to follow–up after their 18th birthday, reported Allison Agwu, MD, from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and colleagues in a poster presentation at the International AIDS Conference. "Eighteen is a critical age of legal and social transition," Agwu said, adding that "there are changes in insurance coverage and foster care. As a result, adolescents turning 18 years of age may be at a particularly high risk of falling out of care." (Source: Medpage Today)

Blood Grouping systems & Principles, Blood Group Discrepancies & their possible solutions

ABO system

  • 3 major genes: A, B and O
  • H gene determines the action of the L–fucosyl transferase, which produces the H substance
  • H substance results in the production of A and B antigen
  • Group O retain a large amount of H antigen
    • No A or B gene–specified transferase
  • H gene is expressed in
    • homozygous (H/H)
    • heterozygous (H/h)
  • Unique
  • Antibodies of the ABO blood group are present in the serum of almost every person who does not have corresponding antigen
  • "expected" antibodies
  • Subgroups
  • ABO system is controlled by allelic genes A1, A2, B, O located on the long arm of chromosome 9
  • The loci of ABO & H are not genetically linked
  • A1 & A2 genes perform same function but have a different rate constant
  • The O gene is an amorph & functionally silent
  • The H antigen is a precursor to A & B
  • Secretors & nonsecretors – Se & se genes control the production of a flucosyl transferase, which controls the production of H, A & B antigens in tissues

    An Inspirational Story

(Dr GM Singh)

The wise farmer

Many years ago, in a poor Chinese village, there lived a farmer and his son. His only material possession, apart from the land and a small hut, was a horse he had inherited from his father. One day, the horse ran away, leaving the man with no animal with which to work the land.

His neighbors, who respected him for his honesty and diligence, went to his house to say how much they regretted his loss. He thanked them for their visit, but asked: "How do you know that what happened was a misfortune in my life?"

Someone muttered to a friend: "He obviously doesn’t want to face facts, but let him think what he likes, after all, it’s better than being sad about it."

And the neighbors went away again, pretending to agree with what he had said.

A week later, the horse returned to its stable, but it was not alone; it brought with it a beautiful mare for company. The inhabitants of the village were thrilled when they heard the news, for only then did they understand the reply the man had given them, and they went back to the farmer’s house to congratulate him on his good fortune.

"Instead of one horse, you’ve got two. Congratulations!" they said. "Many thanks for your visit and for your solidarity," replied the farmer. "But how do you know that what happened was a blessing in my life?"

The neighbors were rather put out and decided that the man must be going mad, and, as they left, they said: "Doesn’t the man realize that the horse is a gift from God?"

A month later, the farmer’s son decided to break the mare in. However, the animal bucked wildly and threw the boy off; the boy fell awkwardly and broke his leg.

The neighbors returned to the farmer’s house, bringing presents for the injured boy. The mayor of the village solemnly presented his condolences to the father, saying how sad they all were about what had occurred.

The man thanked them for their visit and for their kindness, but he asked: "How do you know that what happened was a misfortune in my life?"

These words left everyone dumbstruck, because they were all quite sure that the son’s accident was a real tragedy. As they left the farmer’s house, they said to each other: "Now he really has gone mad; his only son could be left permanently crippled, and he’s not sure whether the accident was a misfortune or not!"

A few months went by, and Japan declared war on China. The emperor’s emissaries scoured the country for healthy young men to be sent to the front.

When they reached the village, they recruited all the young men, except the farmer’s son, whose leg had not yet mended.

None of the young men came back alive. The son recovered, and the two horses produced foals that were all sold for a good price.

The farmer went to visit his neighbors to console and to help them, since they had always shown him such solidarity.

Whenever any of them complained, the farmer would say: "How do you know that what happened was a misfortune?"

If someone was overjoyed about something, he would ask: "How do you know that what happened was a blessing?"

And the people of the village came to understand that life has other meanings that go beyond mere appearance.

    Legal Question of the Day

(Dr MC Gupta)

Q. I am a radiologist working in a private medical college and at the same time doing ultrasounds at my own private clinic in the evenings. The college and my clinic are in two different districts. Can I continue with this system in view of the recent amendment in PNDT Rules?

Ans.

  1. As a result of the Pre–conception & Pre–natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Amendment Rules, 2012, Rule 3(3) of the amended Rules now reads—

    "(3) Each medical practitioner qualified under the Act to conduct ultrasonography in a genetic clinic/ultrasound clinic/imaging centre shall be permitted to be registered with a maximum of two such clinics/centers within a district. The consulting hours for such medical practitioner, shall be clearly specified by each clinic/centre".
  2. Nothing in this rule or any other rule says that a person cannot work in two different districts. The spirit of the rule is that a person should not work in more than two centres.
  3. You can continue to work in both centres. I presume you are registered in the district where your private clinic is situated. (Registration of the clinic in the medical college is not your concern but that of the medical college).

Sudden death due to cardiac origin–autopsy

Right coronary artery supplies blood to electrical area of heart

The most common cause of sudden cardiac death in adults over the age of forty was coronary artery atheroma seen in postmortem examination in about 100 cases randomly selected by me in AIIMS mortuary.

  • The most common finding at postmortem examination is chronic high–grade stenosis of minimum one segment of a major coronary artery, the arteries which supply the heart muscle with its blood supply.
  • A significant number of cases also have an identifiable clot in a major coronary artery which causes transmural occlusion of that vessel.
  • In 75 cases out of hundreds, the clots were seen in right coronary artery supplying the electrical area of heart.
  • Death in these cases is thought to result from a period of transient or prolonged lack of blood supply in the muscle of the heart wall, which induces a ventricular arrhythmia/fibrillation and no changes in the myocardium are seen during postmortem examination.
  • The absence of the histological signs of acute necrosis and a healed infarct are a common finding.
  • Chronic high–grade stenosis causing previous episodes of ischemia and areas of focal fibrosis is seen histologically in the myocardium.
  • Ventricular arrhythmias may arise from a myocardium which has been previously scarred by episodes of ischemia.

Eating refined sugar can cause diabetes

Eating too much refined white sugar can cause insulin resistance and future diabetes, said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India.

Diabetes does not mean that one cannot have desserts forever. While eating too many sugary foods is to be avoided, one can have an occasional dessert, especially if one exercises and otherwise eats healthy. It’s better to substitute brown sugar or jaggery in that case. Artificial sweeteners including stevia, a natural sweetener obtained from plants, are the other options.

Fruits are healthy for diabetics but can’t be consumed in huge amounts, since it contains carbohydrates.

As per Ayurveda, diabetes is a Kapha disorder and diabetics should limit the intake of sweet, salt and sour taste in the diet.

Any fruit or vegetable which is bitter and dark green has antidiabetic properties.

One should combine a bitter taste with a sweet taste when choosing a vegetable or a fruit. For example, one should not combine peas with potatoes but potatoes can be combined with methi (fenugreek leaves) or palak (spinach).

Diabetics are not more susceptible to colds and other illnesses but may have more complications of flu.

Taking insulin does not cause hardening of the arteries or high blood pressure.

Diabetes is not contagious and one cannot get diabetes from someone else.
