Disease relevance of Wounds and Injuries


Psychiatry related information on Wounds and Injuries


High impact information on Wounds and Injuries

  • Similarities between paraquat-induced damage and that previously observed from the hydroxyl radical are consistent with paraquat, causing damage by generation of reactive oxygen species and the widespread belief that generation of O2.- initiates the formation of destructive reactive oxygen species in a wide variety of traumas and other disorders [8].
  • Markedly obese athletes like Japanese sumo wrestlers may frequently suffer various traumas which result in the prophylaxis or treatment of posttraumatic infection with antibiotics [9].
  • Transcription of the heat shock gene grpE was studied in two different morphologic stages of the archaeon Methanosarcina mazei S-6 that differ in resistance to physical and chemical traumas: single cells and packets [10].
  • The starting point of vitiligo macules is frequently determined by local conditions such as wounds and excoriations, but may also follow minor traumas such as pressure or repeated friction [11].
  • DESIGN: Rat peritoneum was subjected to a variety of traumas that might occur at biopsy and compared with peritoneal biopsies that had been collected, using the suture method described here, from PD patients [12].

Chemical compound and disease context of Wounds and Injuries

  • Beta-endorphin and cortisol levels in plasma and CSF following acute experimental spinal traumas [13].
  • Our investigation compares injuries and wounds in psychiatric patients and those in persons examined in the Institute for Forensic Medicine after referral by the police [14].
  • Traumas to face and TMJs, certain occlusal factors and dental pathology may have a remarkable role in the etiology [15].
  • In this study, various childhood traumas were found to be significantly associated withsuicidal behavior among adult male cocaine dependent patients [16].

Gene context of Wounds and Injuries

  • This is the first study describing a significant association between dental fractures and ADHD which contributes to an explanatory model on dental traumas among children [17].
  • In such situations, e.g. after severe traumas, operations, infections and combustions, administration of GH can be rather helpful [18].
  • In our opinion, MR must be part of the radiological protocol following neck traumas in all patients with ankylosing spondylitis [19].
  • High numbers of traumas, having children, being over 25 years of age, and the reporting of an absent husband, were characteristics associated with being a PTS-case [20].
  • Nurses are challenged to harness the influence of family, friends, religion, and cultural traditions to assist women in processing the cognitive, emotional, and social traumas associated with IPL [21].
