The anti-peroxidant effect of intravenous magnesium was evaluated in 50 patients with acute aluminium phosphide poisoning. The patients were divided into two groups, one who received magnesium sulphate therapy (Group I) and the other who did not (Group II). The clinical and biochemical parameters in both groups were comparable. Finding of increased mean(More)
The present study evaluates the presence of oxidative stress in the uncontrolled diabetic state. Glycemic control reduced the oxidative stress, but total normalization of the parameters of oxidative stress was not achieved, indicating continued oxidant injury despite optimal control of the diabetes. Vitamin E supplementation for 4 weeks in these patients(More)
Free radicals scavengers superoxide dismuatase (SOD) and catalase and lipid peroxidation were studied in 45 patients of aluminium phosphide poisoning irrespective of age and sex admitted to a hospital in north India during the January 1992 to December 1993. Serial serum superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and MDA (malonyldialdehyde) were estimated on days(More)
OBJECTIVE Parameters of oxidative stress were quantitated in 50 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in uncontrolled state and after control using oral glibenclamide or gliclazide. The estimates were further compared between the two groups irrespective of drug used to evaluate the difference, if any. METHODS The study was a double blind, uncontrolled,(More)
Eighteen cases of endosulfan poisoning by accidental overexposure during spray, admitted between October 1995 to September 1997, were observed and analyzed. These accounted for approximately one third of the total number of poisoning cases admitted in our unit during this period. Nausea, vomiting abdominal discomfort, tonic and clonic convulsions,(More)
Silver nitrate impregnated paper test was performed with the gastric fluid and in breath in 50 patients of aluminium phosphide poisoning. The test was 100% positive with gastric fluid but was positive in 50% patients in breath. The test is simple, reliable and sensitive method to detect phosphine (PH3) for bed side diagnosis of aluminium phosphide (AIP)(More)
