Neuropathic Pain is a result of an injury or malfunction in the nervous system. This condition is characterized by burning, stabbing, piercing, tingling, numb, aching or electric shock-like sensations which may constantly be present and may last for several months or years following tissue injury.
Asthma is a respiratory disease characterized by an inflammation of the airways (bronchial tubes) which causes airflow into and out of the lungs to be restricted, hence leading to its hallmark symptom of wheezing as well as coughing, chest constriction, and labored breathing.
Nonvitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) appear to confer more clinical benefits to elderly patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) than vitamin K antagonist anticoagulants (VKAs), suggests a study, adding that this is primarily driven by the lower rates of major bleeding.
In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) naïve to oral anticoagulants (OACs), standard-dose nonvitamin K antagonist OACs (NOACs) provides better survival benefits than warfarin, a recent meta-analysis has shown.
Use of diclofenac, a traditional nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2) selectivity similar to COX-2 inhibitors, is associated with higher cardiovascular health risk compared with nonuse, paracetamol use and use of other traditional NSAIDs, a recent study has shown.
