Effects of lornoxicam on the hemodynamic and catecholamine response to laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation

Laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation are associated with hemodynamic responses that might increase morbidity and mortality in some patients. Lornoxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, which, when added to fentanyl, successfully attenuated the pressor response of intubation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of lornoxicam on the hemodynamic response and serum catecholamine levels following laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation. Fifty adult patients scheduled for general anaesthesia with endotracheal intubation were enrolled in this randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled study. They were divided into two equal groups to receive intravenously either lornoxicam 16 mg or placebo 30 min before surgery. Mean arterial pressure and heart rate were recorded before and after induction of anaesthesia, and every minute after intubation for 10 min. Serum catecholamine levels were measured before induction and 1 min after intubation. After induction, there was a significant decrease in blood pressure in both groups. In the first 3 min after tracheal intubation, a significant increase in the hemodynamic parameters and in the serum norepinephrine level was observed in the control group. Lornoxicam 16 mg attenuates t...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.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
