The current ethnomedicinal field study was conducted from various traditional communities of Pakistan to document usage of medicinal plants as herbal drinks. Data was collected through field interviews from local people and using semi-structured questionnaires. Data was analyzed using quantitative indices such as UV (use value), RFC (Relative frequency of citation), and FL (Fidelity level).
The interpretation of the level of strontium (Sr) in blood has been demonstrated to be useful in the diagnosis of death by drowning occurred in sea water, but its use in fresh water drownings is not so evident because of the low Sr concentration present in most of fresh water media. In this paper, we show a survey of the results obtained in the casework analysis of Sr in ventricular blood used in the diagnosis of drowning in 144 bodies found immersed in fresh water over a period of 10 years. Thirty-two percent of the immersion cases examined could be diagnosed as drownings with a reasonable degree of confidence. It is thought that this percentage of positive diagnoses could be largely improved in the case of blood samples taken a few hours after death.
Les urgences humanitaires entraînent une rupture des services de soins de santé essentiels et elles rendent souvent les communautés vulnérables dépendantes des organismes externes pour leurs soins. Dans les milieux où les ressources sont comptées, cela peut se produire sur fond d'extrême pauvreté, de malnutrition, d’insécurité, de faible niveau d'alphabétisation et d’infrastructures insuffisantes. Dans ces circonstances, fournir nourriture, eau et abri, tout en limitant les épidémies de maladies transmissibles, devient une préoccupation centrale. Lorsqu'il existe des vaccins sûrs et efficaces pour limiter les risques d'épidémies, leur éventuel déploiement est un facteur clé pour satisfaire les besoins sanitaires d'urgence. Les considérations éthiques sont essentielles pour se prononcer sur le déploiement de la vaccination. La distribution de vaccins en quantités limitées, les groupes cibles, les stratégies de vaccination, la surveillance et la recherche lors de situations d'urgence humanitaire graves impliquent tous des considérations éthiques souvent nées de la tension entre le bien individuel et le bien commun. Les auteurs exposent les questions éthiques que les décideurs doivent garder à l'esprit lorsqu'ils envisagent le déploiement d’une vaccination de masse pendant les urgences humanitaires, notamment la bénéficience (devoir de diligence et devoir d’assistance), la non-maléficience, l’autonomie et le consentement, ainsi que la justice de répartition et l’équité procédurale.

A delayed functional improvement due to stem cell implantation has been documented by electrophysiology, fMRI and behavioral testing. This functional improvement occurred without cells acting as a tissue replacement for the necrotic tissue after the ischemic event. Combination of disappearance of grafted cells after six months on histological sections with persistent functional recovery was interpreted as paracrine effects by the grafted stem cells being the dominant mechanism of cell activity underlying the observed functional restitution of the original activation sites. Future studies will have to investigate whether the stem cell mediated improvement reactivates the original representation target field by using original connectivity pathways or by generating/activating new ones for the stimulus.

Sexual assault cases have varying factors that may mask semen findings when analysing evidence at the forensic laboratory. Semenogelin (Sg) is a potential marker for the identification of semen even at azoospermy or when few sperm cells are found. The current study examined Sg in normospermic and azoospermic donors as an internal evaluation of sensitivity, specificity and interference. The impact of a historical review of 53 judicial sexual assault cases over a five-year period was also analysed. The use of varying tests was of importance to prioritize certain samples within cases. Semen findings by Sg were then compared to prostate-specific antigen (PSA), phosphatase enzyme (AP) and Y-chromosome presence, the latter being used in an attempt to link semen fluid identification with obtaining a male DNA profile. Test findings were the highest ever registered for Sg (1:400,000), PSA (1:800,000), AP (1:25,000) and sperm cytology (SC) (1:50,000). Our results demonstrated the usefulness of using the Sg marker to avoid a false semen-negative result (6% cases), particularly in cases where sperm was absent or scarce (11% spermatozoa positive cases). Results were expressed in categories according to the set: Sg-PSA-AP. Thus, categories I (full positive, 46%), VI (full negative, 27%) and III (Sg/PSA positive; 11%) were the most frequent and Y-chromosome was obtained in 59%, 12% and 12% ratios, respectively. In conclusion, Sg was recommended for the workflow procedure of semen investigation when sperm absence is expected either from azoospermic/oligospermic or normospermic semen, especially before/after ejaculation.

We used sequence data from the intron and spacer of the trnL-trnF chloroplast region to study phylogenetic relationships among Acanthaceae. This region is more variable than other chloroplast loci that have been sequenced for members of Acanthaceae (rbcL and ndhF), is more prone to length mutations, and is less homoplasious than these genes. Our results indicate that this region is likely to be useful in addressing phylogenetic questions among but not within genera in these and related plants. In terms of phylogenetic relationships, Elytraria (representing Nelsonioideae) is more distantly related to Acanthaceae sensu stricto (s.s.) than Thunbergia and Mendoncia. These last two genera are strongly supported as sister taxa. Molecular evidence does not support monophyly of Acanthaceae s.s., although there is strong morphological evidence for this relationship. There is strong support for monophyly of four major lineages within Acanthaceae s.s.: the Acanthus, Barleria, Ruellia, and Justicia lineages as here defined. The last three of these comprise a strongly supported monophyletic group, and there is weaker evidence linking the Ruellia and Justicia lineages as closest relatives. Within the Acanthus lineage, our results confirm the existence of monophyletic lineages representing Aphelandreae and Acantheae. Lastly, within the Justicia lineage, we develop initial hypotheses regarding the definition of sublineages; some of these correspond to earlier ideas, whereas others do not. All of these hypotheses need to be tested against more data.

The concept of brain death is still controversial. The Chilean case, as a result of a future transplantation law, seem to demonstrate this issue. The aim of this work is to contribute to the debate. A recent international polemic between metaphysic and pragmatic authors is approached, to establish bases to reject or accept the issue, after giving a brief history of the concept, from its medical origin to its transcendence to other areas as the law. The metaphysical rejection and the socio-cultural frame of the medical attitude that accepts brain death, are commented. It is concluded that the best defense of metaphysical point of view is the right to exclusion of minorities. Finally, brain death is criticized from a socio-cultural point of view of medical acts as a post-metaphysical concept of "useful death" and because of its relationship with "health production".

Justicia wynaadensis locally known as Moddu Soppu belongs to the family Acanthaceae. The aqueous bluish purple color extracted from the leaves and stems of Justicia is used in the preparation of a sweet dish by the natives of Kodagu district, Karanataka, India, exclusively during the monsoons. This traditional practice is believed to keep the people healthy throughout the year. Owing to its potential to be used as a natural colorant there is a strong need to develop efficient extraction method for maximum yield of colorant and preliminary scientific study of stability. Microscopy was carried out to find out the location of purple color in both leaves and stem and to study the anatomical details. An optimized microwave extraction method for extraction of colorant from Justicia has been developed. The microwave oven extraction yield of colorant is 9.41 % (±0.8598) under the optimized conditions of extraction time 30 min., extraction temperature 150 °C and ratio of liquid to solid 30 ml/g. The study demonstrated that the purple extract of the plant was stable against pH range 6.0-8.0, low temperature (4 °C), high temperature (≥50 °C) and sensitive to light. Thus these observations recommend the use of J. wynaadensis extract as a food colorant in neutral or slightly alkaline products (bakery, milk, egg etc.) and could be the potential source for the food colorant market.

Different doses of aqueous extracts from the leaves of Aloe buettneri, Justicia insularis, Hibiscus macranthus and Dicliptera verticillata, locally used to regulate the menstrual cycle and to treat dysmenorrhea or infertility in women, were given daily to 22 day old rats for 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 days by gastric intubation. At the end of each experimental period, the weights of ovaries and uteri, levels of uterine and ovarian proteins, ovarian cholesterol and serum oestradiol were evaluated. The results showed a decrease in growth rate of animals treated with 94 mg/kg per day at the end of the experimental period. The ovarian and uterine weights were high in all treated groups especially within the pubertal period (36-41 days old) when compared to the respective controls. During the same period, the parameters analysed showed significant differences in treated rats when compared to the controls. This was seen with ovarian and uterine protein levels, as well as with serum oestradiol whose level was especially high in the groups given 49 or 94 mg/kg per day of the plant extracts (52 and 42%, respectively when compared with the respective controls). A concomitant decrease in ovarian cholesterol was observed in the same treated groups. These results suggested a possible presence of oestrogenic compounds in the plant extracts.
This work studied the antinociceptive, antiinflammatory and bronchodilator activities of hydroalcoholic extracts (HAEs) from Torresea cearensis, Justicia pectoralis, Eclipta alba, Pterodon polygaliflorus and Hybanthus ipecacuanha. These plants are largely used in north-eastern Brazil for respiratory tract diseases, and have in common coumarin, one of their active principles. The antinociceptive effects of all HAEs in mice were similar, and the inhibition of the acetic acid-induced writhing was 35-55% with 200 mg/kg, p.o. At this dose, the effect ranged from 41-77% with the formalin test in mice, and all the HAEs inhibited preferentially the 2nd phase of the response. In one case (P. polygaliflorus), the effect was partially reversed by naloxone. Except for the HAE from T. cearensis (200 mg/kg, p.o.) which inhibited carrageenan-induced edema by 47%, the others presented no effect orally but showed a significant activity intraperitoneally. On the other hand, T. cearensis was not active in the dextran model, while inhibitions with the other ones were lower than 30%. The bronchodilator activities of J. pectoralis and P. polygaliflorus HAEs as determined in isolated guinea-pig trachea were the most active.

We analyzed 238 unrelated Mestizo (admixed) individuals from the West region of Mexico with the PowerPlex® Fusion System (Promega Corp.). Allele frequencies and forensic parameters were estimated for the 23 STRs included in this kit. Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium by locus and non-association between pair of loci were demonstrated by exact tests in this population. The combined PE and PD offered by this HID kit were ≥0.9999999986, representing a substantial improvement with respect to those previously offered by 15 STR systems. Interpopulation comparison by AMOVA tests demonstrated low but significant differences among Mexican Mestizos from West, Center, and Northeast regions (Fst = 0.01558; p = 0.0000), similar to the observed among three main ethnic groups from USA (Fst = 0.02048; p = 0.0000). This finding is consistent with the contrary clines of European and Amerindian ancestries described throughout the Mexican territory for Mestizos, the largest population (~90 %) in this country.
