The key to handling Covid-19 infection lies in its early recognition and understanding of the clinical problems during the different progressive phases of the disease. Practical knowledge leads to a rational approach to case management and an excellent clinical outcome. Continue reading

Malaria – Symptoms, Diagnosis, and prevention

The most common infectious tropical disease is Malaria and an enormous public health issue. It is a parasitic disease characterized by fever, chills, and anemia caused by the malaria parasite, which is transmitted from one human to another by the bite of infected Anopheles mosquitoes.

WHAT IS THE PROCALCITONIN TEST

Procalcitonin (PCT) is the precursor of the hormone calcitonin. Under normal conditions, the PCT formed in thyroid C cells is converted to calcitonin; as a result, no PCT is released into circulation, and the level of procalcitonin in the blood of healthy individuals is low. Therefore, it is generally undetectable in Healthy persons.

PROCALCITONIN& HEART FAILURE

Procalcitonin (PCT) is the precursor of the hormone calcitonin.It is a 116 amino acid protein with a molecular mass of 13 kDa, encoded by the CALC1 gene. Under normal conditions, the PCT formed in thyroid C cells is converted to calcitonin; as a result, no PCT is released into circulation, and a procalcitonin level in the blood of healthy individuals is low. Therefore, it is normally undetectable in Healthy persons, and PCT levels in healthy individuals are <0.1 ng/ml.

PROCALCITONIN IN SEPSIS AND ANTIBIOTIC THERAPY

Procalcitonin (PCT) is the precursor of the hormone calcitonin hormone. Under usual conditions, the PCT is formed in thyroid C cells is converted to calcitonin. As a result, no PCT is released into circulation, and a procalcitonin level in the blood of healthy individuals is low. Therefore, it is normally undetectable in Healthy persons. PCT levels in healthy individuals are <0.1 ng/ml.

Role Of Procalcitonin In Human Body

Procalcitonin (PCT) is the pre-cursor of the calcitonin.It is a 116 amino acid protein with a molecular mass of 13 kDa, encoded by the CALC1 gene. Under normal conditions, the PCT formed in thyroid C cells is converted to calcitonin; as a result, no PCT is released into circulation, and the level of procalcitonin in the blood of healthy individuals is low. Therefore, it is typically undetectable in Healthy persons.

How to use Dengue test kit for more accurate result

Dengue is among the most rapidly spreading vector-borne diseases in the world. The key to handling dengue infection is its early recognition and a clear grasp of the clinical problems during the different gradual phases of the disease. This will lead to a rational approach to case management and an excellent clinical outcome- a life saved Dengue infection is a dynamic and systematic disease. There are 3 phases of infection; febrile, critical, and recovery. A Patient in the critical phase may have Plasma leakage leading to Dengue shock syndrome (DSS).
