P Doury, S Pattin


Benorylate is obtained by esterification of acetylsalicylic acid and N-acetyl p-aminophenol (4-acetamidophenyl 2-acetoxybenzoate). Experimentally, this new product has been shown to be a good analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent. A clinical trial was carried out in order to study the efficacy, side effects and tolerance of this new product. In a group of 49 hospitalised patients aged from 20 to 70 years who were treated with this new product, 15 had ankylosing spondylitis, 11 had chronic progressive rheumatoid arthritis, 4 had Reiter's syndrome, 4 had psoriatic arthropathy, 8 had osteoarthrosis of the hip and 7 had various forms of rheumatism. The drug was administered orally in suspension form, initially three times per day, then twice, the total daily doses being 15 ml (6 g) or 20 ml (8 g). Treatment was regarded as effective in 62% of the cases, and of these 62%, 46% good and very good results were obtained. In 88% of the patients, tolerance was satisfactory and of these, it was excellent in 80%. Only in 2 cases did treatment have to be discontinued on account of side effects. From the biological point of view, uricaemia was significantly reduced in 7 patients, and in 6 patients uricuria increased. With regard to the level ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain.
