The action of buphenin, a uterine relaxant from the group of adrenergic beta-mimetics, was examined on the blood pools of placenta, myometrium and heart, in 10 pregnant women. The method consisted of an i.v. injection of the radioisotope 113m-Indium and of registering the blood pools by external measurement of the gamma-activity. buphenin caused an increase in placental and myometrial blood pools with a corresponding decrease in cardiac blood pool. These changes were observed in all the cases examined and occurred whether the uterus had previously been inactive or in labour. The changes in blood pool were dependent on the dose of buphenin administered but there was no relationship apparent between the degree of pool changes and severity of pregnancy complication prevailing.

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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
