Book of Abstracts includes materials of Scientific and Practical Conference of Young Scientists and Students «Actual questions of development of new drugs». Materials are groupped according to the main directions of scientific, research and educational work of the National University of Pharmacy. The development of science has always been one of the most important tasks for our university. Because we are both the greatest pharmaceutical educational institution in our country, and the developed research structure, we want to provide not only good specialists, but also new and safe medicines. Of course, nowadays we already have powerful scientific basement – well-known scientists, professors and their achievements. Today 371 medicines with wide range of pharmacological activities are in various stages of implementation. But in order to continue the development of current research areas in the future we need you – students and young scientists with a strong desire to make our life better, healthier, happier. Different Student Scientific Societies have been fruitfully working in every department for 70 years already. Nowadays they unite more than 700 students, among them – students from foreign countries too. Student Scientific Societies are 3 the first step for students and young scientists on the way of improving their skills. You can choose the most interesting for you research area in pharmacy: from synthesis of new biologically active molecules and their analysis to preclinical and clinical testing, industrial aspects or marketing research. You have brilliant opportunity to test yourself in order to find your own way in science during students‘ years. Because altogether we are working for our main goal – development of new, safe and efficient medicines. Thus our Conference «Topical issues of new drugs development» is the first step for you today. Nowadays publication of abstracts is carried out entirely in English, as well as our plenary sessions. The Conference is an important part of your scientific work – an interesting and challenging pathway that leads to PhD degree, then to the degree of Doctor of Science, to professorship. Almost 90 % of our teaching staff, as well as I‘m myself, has started their scientific career the same way. Someone can say that scientific work isn‘t always easy and straight, that it needs lots of energy and even money. But we must understand that without the development of national science it‘s just impossible to make our country strong and independent, as it will be for sure in the nearest future. That‘s why the main goal for us is making science fashionable for talented youth and creating all necessary conditions for your scientific work.
However cheap 50mg minocycline fast delivery, biopsies should be repeated afer 3 and 12 months since relapse is frequent buy generic minocycline 50mg line. Antmonials combined with allopurinol, pentamidine isothionate and amphotericin B have been used with success in patents in relapse who have become unresponsive to antmonials alone. These conditons are charac- terized by a cell-mediated reacton of varying intensity at the site of inoculaton. When the lesion is infamed or ulcerated or when obstructon of lymphatc drainage or destructon of cartlage creates a risk of serious disfgurement or disability, antmonials should be administered systemically as well as locally. In this form of the disease the primary lesions do not heal and spread to the mucosa may occur. It usually responds to antmonials and, when relapses occur, more extended courses of treatment are ofen successful. Patents who stll fail to respond should receive amphotericin B or pentamidine isothionate, although neither treatment is highly satsfactory. Emergency use of cortcosteroids may be needed to control pharyngeal or tracheal oedema produced by severe infam- maton resultng from antgens liberated from dead parasites during the early phase of treatment. Antbiotcs may also be needed to treat secondary infectons and plastc surgery ofers the only means of amelioratng disfg- uring scars. Difuse Cutaneous Leishmaniasis: Difuse cutaneous leishmaniasis usually occurs following infec- ton with L. Pentamidine* Pregnancy Category-C Schedule H Indicatons Leishmaniasis; African trypanosomiasis; Pneumocysts carinii pneumonia. Precautons Risk of severe hypotension following admin- istraton (establish baseline blood pressure and administer with patent lying down); monitor blood pressure during administra- ton and treatment period; hypertension; hypoglycaemia or hyperglycaemia; hepatc impairment; leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, anaemia; immunodefciency-if acute dete- rioraton in bone marrow, renal or pancreatc functon, interrupt or discontnue treatment; renal impairment; pregnancy-in potentally fatal visceral leishmaniasis, pregnancy (Ap- pendix 7c); lactaton (Appendix 7b); history of asthma. Adverse Efects Nephrotoxicity; acute hypotension-with dizziness, headache, breathlessness; tachycardia and syncope following rapid intravenous injecton; hypoglycaemia- may be followed by hyperglycaemia and type I diabetes mellitus; pancreatts; also hypocalcaemia,gastrointestnaldisturbances; confusion, hallucinatons; arrhythmias; thrombocytopenia, leukopenia, abnormal liver functon tests; hyperkalaemia; rash, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, reported; pain, local induraton, sterile abscess and muscle necrosis at injecton site; night sweat, diarrhoea, nausea, anaemia, wheezing, bad taste, anxiety, insomnia, miscarriage, erythema. Successful treatment of mucocutaneous leishmaniasis may induce severe infammaton around lesions (may be life-threatening if pharyngeal or tracheal involvement)-may require cortcosteroids. Plasmodium vivax is the most extensively distributed and causes much debilitatng disease. Recrudes- cence of these infectons results from persistent blood forms in inadequately treated or untreated patents. Treatment of Malaria: Blood schizontcides, which suppress malaria by destroying the asexual blood forms of the parasites, are the mainstay of the treatment of acute malaria and some are used for prophylaxis. They include the 4-aminoquinolines (example amodiaquine and chloroquine), the related arylaminoalcohols (example mefoquine and quinine) and artemisinin and its derivatves (example artemether and artesunate). Blood schizontcides are not actve against intrahepatc forms and therefore they do not eliminate infectons by P. For example, pyrimethamine in combinaton with a sulfonamide (sulfadoxine) or sulfone and some antbiotcs (for example doxycycline) are blood schizontcides. Because they act more slowly, these substances are of litle value when used alone. The tetracyclines are used primarily as adjuncts to quinine where multple-drug-resistant P. Chloroquine, a rapidly actng schizontcide, is well tolerated, safe and inexpensive. It should preferably be used as part of combinaton therapy with other antmalarials, for example artesunate. Hepatts and blood disorders were reported when amodiaquine was used for prophylaxis of malaria; patents should be told how to recog- nise the symptoms of these conditons and advised to seek medical help if they occur. The combinaton of sulfadoxine with pyrimethamine is recom- mended for the treatment of malaria only in areas of high chloroquine resistance. A single dose of sulfadoxine with pyrimethamine is usually sufcient to eliminate infecton; quinine should also be given for 3 days in patents in whom quinine may accelerate reducton of parasitaemia and in those at risk of fulminatng disease. Because sulfonamides are asso- ciated with a risk of haemolysis and methaemoglobinaemia in the newborn, quinine is preferred to treat chloroquine-re- sistant malaria during pregnancy. Mefoquine is generally well tolerated, although, some adverse efects have been reported (see notes). However, because of the danger of the emergence of mefoquine-resistant strains of P. Doxycy- cline, which is an efectve oral schizontcide, should be given in combinaton with quinine except in pregnant women and children under 8 years. In mult-drug resistant malaria, preparatons of artemisinin or its derivatves (artemether or artesunate) ofer the only prospect of cure. For the treatment of mult-drug resistant falciparum malaria oral artesunate may be an efectve antmalarial. Parenteral artemether or artesunate, whose use is restricted, are efectve alternatves to quinine for the treatment of severe falciparum malaria and are preferred in areas where decreased efcacy of quinine has been documented. To ensure radical cure following parenteral treat- ment with artemether or oral treatment with artesunate, a full therapeutc dose of mefoquine should be given. A fxed-dose oral formulaton of artemether with lumefantrine has recently become available and is recommended for the treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria in areas with signifcant resistance.
The sequence in which postisolation tests are administered may be a relevant variable here since the duration of the effects proven minocycline 50 mg, if any effective 50 mg minocycline, is as yet unknown. The conceptual analysis of cognitive skills into categories such as reasoning, memory, arithmetic, and manipulation would serve a very useful purpose in these studies. Goldberger and Holt (32) offer a tentative generalization which begins to specify some of the different factors involved in various tasks. They point out that, "Probably any task that can be done satisfactorily in a single brief effort by the use of highly overlearned sets of operations (as in simple arithmetic problems), and any learning or memory performance requiring passive receptivity (cf. For example, are there differences in the types of memory or recall involved in digit span as opposed to remote memory? Although the available results are certainly inconclusive, the Gold- -66- berger and Holt generalization suggests that remote recall would be relatively unimpaired by isolation. This would have implications for one interested in the interrogation problem where, leaving motivational issues aside, it would seem that the information a person might recall when cooperating would be reliable. Furthermore the data suggest a decreased interest in and ability to reason through the complexities of the interrogator-prisoner relationship and thus a decreased ability to cope rationally and effectively with the situation at hand. Despite the more tenuous nature of the findings in the area of cognitive skills, to the extent to which a generalization is possible, it seems that in addition to the decline in internal norms or standards for perceiving reality, under conditions of deprivation and isolation there is a lessened ability to reason closely and solve complex problems. Should such a generalization be supported by subsequent findings, a relevant question remains about the extent of such impairment in quantitative terms. Suggestibility An issue related to that of cognitive functioning in isolation and deprivation is that of suggestibility. The reported success of isolated confinement in modifying beliefs and convictions initially directed interest to the question of suggestibility. After twenty hours of perceptual deprivation, twenty-four subjects were exposed to a recorded propaganda message consisting of a ninetyminute talk read in a boring monotone and arguing for belief in various psychical phenomena. To measure attitude change, a series of attitude scales of the Bogardus type were administered before and after confinement. A control group of twenty-seven subjects received both scales before and after a similar interval. Both groups, experimental and control, showed a significant change in attitude after listening to the records. Similarly, measures of interest in the topic and assessments of its importance showed a greater increase for the subjects exposed to perceptual deprivation. Although follow-up data were not systematically obtained, incidental evidence indicated that for some subjects at least, these effects persisted for as long as three to four days. Vernon and Hoffman (76) tested subjects for degree of body sway suggestibility following varying periods of -67- sensory deprivation. These authors remark cryptically that attempts to measure this phenomenon "proved unsuccessful. Rather than estimate the effects of isolation upon suggestibility, others have sought to establish a relationship between suggestibility as a personality attribute and 1 response to deprivation. Petrie measured body sway suggestibility in a group of nine subjects who had been exposed to the conditions of confinement and perceptual deprivation described by Wexler et al. Her observations revealed a trend toward a negative relationship between amount of body sway and length of time voluntarily spent in deprivation. Camberari (16) studied the response to sensory deprivation of twenty male unpaid volunteer psychology graduate students evenly divided into suggestible and nonsuggestible groups. This division was based on the composite scores of these subjects on several tests of suggestibility. Isolation and sensory deprivation were brought about by suspending subjects nude in a tank of water by means of a harness. His over-all findings appear to contradict that of Petrie in that the suggestible group remained in the situation significantly longer (183 minutes) than the nonsuggestible group (111 minutes). The Camberari data pose the difficulty of interpreting the notion of suggestibility. The meaning of the term is difficult to assess independent of the operations defining it and the experimental consequences. Once again, leaving aside the complex motivational issues which limit generalization of laboratory studies to real life situations, we are left with the Heron findings that following isolation and confinement, beliefs around a topic such as psychical phenomena change significantly. This observation is also consistent with the hypothesis of a decline in internal perceptual norms and in ability to reason efficiently. It would seem likely that changing the emotional relationship between the authority and the subject would introduce another complex variable which cannot be assessed without data. The tendency to modification of belief in experimental circumstances is 1 Personal communication, 1958. It should be kept in mind that in the latter situation additional elements of uncertainty, stress, and coercion were brought to bear in inducing these changes (10, 42). Personality Findings The relationship of personality attributes to tolerance for isolation is one which has significant implications for issues as diverse as personnel selection and personality theory. That the study of response to this situation might be relevant to the study of personality was pointed out: by Hochberg et al. Whether any relationships exist between personality factors, the mode in7 which the Ganzfeld is perceived, and the course of color adaptation, is yet to be investigated.
