Coagulation Disorders Among Potential Blood Donors

Coagulation Disorders Among Potential Blood Donors

Coagulation Disorders – Coagulation is a complex process by which blood forms clots. It is an important part of haemostasis, the cessation of blood loss from damage vessel (www.wikipedia.org). It involves a series of enzymatic reaction involving the proteolytic activation of circulating coagulation factors (zymogen and the activity of co-factors) prothrombin which converts soluble plasma fibrinogen into fibrin which enmeshes the platelet plug forming a stable thrombus to stop bleeding and begining repair of damage vessel.

Onchocerciasis in the Tropics

Onchocerciasis in the Tropics

Onchocerciasis in the Tropics – River blindness (Human onchocerciasis) is a serious neglected tropical disease caused by the filarial nematode parasite Onchocerca volvulus and an important cause of blindness and chronic disability in the developing world. Presently, it is estimated that 37 million people carry O. volvulus, with 90 million at risk in Africa. Morbidity at present is estimated at 987,000 disability-adjusted life-years and there are 46,000 new cases of blindness annually. [Read more…]

CA-MRSA: Virulence of CA-MRSA

CA-MRSA: Virulence of CA-MRSA

CA-MRSA: Virulence is refers to the degree or intensity of pathogenicity. Where as pathogenicity is an organism capability or potential to cause disease (Willey et al., 2008). Then resistant is the inability of an organism to be killed or inhibited by clinically achievable drug concentration. Methicillin is a beta-lectamase-resistant member of the beta-lactam family of antibiotics that inhibit cell wall biosynthesis. Then methicillin –resistant is resistance to methicillin-type of antibiotics. [Read more…]

Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Organisms

Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Organisms

Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Organisms – Resistance has posed numerous clinical challenges. Antibiotic misuse and overprescription, among numerous other factors, have served as a driving force influencing the selection and dissemination of resistance. As a result, a plethora of diverse resistance mechanisms have been identified, and in many cases, multiple resistance mechanisms to a class of antibiotic have emerged in pathogens, compounding the problem (Melano et al., 2003).
