March 2011 PARASITES IN CATTLE : Dave Leathwick, an independent researcher from AgResearch, delivered a thought provoking presentation on the use of drenches in cattle in NZ. He showed us a reminder of the national survey conducted in 2004-05. Combination A + L Farms passing all groups As you can clearly see, drench resistance is a bigger issue in cattle than in sheep, a message we often forget. Another message that is forgotten is that developingdrench resistance is like a melting glacier. You can't see it melting away unless you actually measure it. Your eye will not pick it up.

Bleaching products fade areas of unwanted pigmentation by disrupting the production and distribution of melanin in the skin by targeting overactive melanocytes (pigment-producing cells). There are a variety of ways to accomplish this and studies have shown that the best results occur when using a combination of two or more of these ingredients. Tyrosinase Inhibitors: Tyrosinase is a copper enzyme which stimulates melanin production in the melanocyte. Most whitening agents fall under this category, interfering with the enzymes function and reducing pigment production in the melanocyte. Hydroquinone Hydroquinone is a hydroxyphenolic compound that has been widely used for skin lightening for 50 years. It is the only FDA approved product for bleaching and a prescription is required to obtain products with a concentration above 2%. It is the most widely studied and scientifically backed bleaching agent on the market, but its use can come at a cost. It can be very irritating to sensitive skin and cause pigmentation to darken and get worse. In very dark skin types, long term use of highly concentrated products (4% or more) can lead to a development of Exogenous Ochronosis, "an irreversible disfiguring cosmetic problem." It is also very difficult to stabilize and can oxidize quickly if exposed to light and air. If a product containing Hydroquinone has darkened from an off-white or a creamy, pale yellow to a gold or brown color, it will no longer be effective and should be discarded. When using Hydroquinone, it is imperative to stay out of the sun for the treatment to work. Always wear a full spectrum sunblock and a hat. Exposure to sun deteriorates the Hydroquinone, rendering it ineffective. Kojic Acid Kojic Acid, a byproduct of the fermentation of rice, was first discovered in Japan in 1907. Kojic acid is the most common bleaching agent next to Hydroquinone. Kojic Acid is a natural and more gentle on the skin alternative to using Hydroquinone. It penetrates the upper skin layers and inhibits the production of epidermal melanin. Kojic Acid does pose a risk of causing allergic or sensitizing reactions in a small number of people. Azelaic Acid A natural skin brightener found in wheat, rye, and barley. Azelaic acid is most effective in concentrations of 20% - an amount that makes is near comparable in activity to 4% Hydroquinone. In a study consisting of 329 melasma sufferers, half were treated with a 20% Azelaic Acid solution, and half were treated with a 4% Hydroquinone solution. 56% of patients treated with AZA had good to favorable results while 73% treated with HQ had a similar result. When combined with Tretinoin or Alpha Hydroxy Acids, the results were noticeably improved. Azelaic Acid, is also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, so it is also effective in the treatment of rosacea and acne. Arbutin (also known as Alpha Arbutin, Bearberry Extract or Uva Ursi Extract) A botanical, naturally-occuring cousin to Hydroquinone, Arbutin was first discovered in the Uva Ursi plant. Compared to HQ, Arbutin has been shown to be significantly less cytotoxic to the melanocyte — making it a much safer, yet very effective alternative to Hydroquinone. In a clinical trial involving Japanese women with melasma, a 3% concentration of Arbutin produced good to excellent results in 71.4% of patients within a three month period. Licorice Extract One of the safest and most gentle bleaching agents around, Licorice Extract is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. The ingredients responsible for the skin whitening aspect of the plan are known as Glabradin and Liquiritin. Liquiritin (in a 20% concentration) has been shown to provide good to excellent results in 70-90% of patients with hyperpigmentation and melasma — with minimal side effects and only minor irritation. Mulberry Extract Mulberry Extract is derived from the root bark of the mulberry tree, Morus Alba L. Studies have confirmed it to effectively reduce tyrosinase activity at much lower concentrations than either Hydroquinone or Kojic Acid. N-Acetyl Glucosamine N-Acetyl Glucosamine is a more stable form of Glucosamine, an agent most widely known as an arthritis treatment. Studies have recently shown it to successfully reduce the amount of melanin in melanocytes by blocking tyrosinase conversion and its results improve significantly when combined with Niacinamide. Inhibition of Melanosome Transfer: These skin lightening agents lighten unwanted pigmentation by interfering with the transfer or melanosomes from the melanocyte to the keratinocytes. Niacinamide or Nicotinamide is a biologically active form of Niacin (Vitamin B3) that has been shown to interrupt melanocyte transfer by 35-68%.

LASER HAAR ENTFERNUNG: WISSENSCHAFTLICHE PRINZIPIEN UND PRAKTISCHE ASPEKTE Christine C. Dierickx, Ärztin Forschung – Wissenschaft Wellman Laboratorien für Photomedizin Harvard Medical School Zusammenfassung Der Gebrauch von Lasern zur Haarentfernung wird seit Jahren erforscht. Während der Behandlung wird das Licht des Lasers von dem Melanin des Haarschafts absorbiert, wo es das fol ikuläre Epithel schädigt. Eine klinische Studie bewertete den Gebrauch des LightSheer Diodenlasers zur Haarentfernung. Von 92 Patienten hatten al e einen Haarverlust und 89% hatten eine dauerhafte Verminderung der Haare. Nachwachsende Haare waren dünner und hel er als zuvor. Die ausgiebige klinische Nutzung dieses leistungsfähigen gepulsten Diodenlasers erbrachte Empfehlungen für ausgewählte Patienten zur sicheren Anwendung des Lasers. Angemessene Intensitätseinstel ungen zeigten eine dauerhafte Haarreduktion ohne dabei die Epidermis zu schädigen, und das unabhängig vom Hauttyp. Hintergrund Laser Haarentfernung konzentriert sich auf den intrazel ulären Farbstoff Melanin, welcher vorrangig im Haar gefunden wird. Ein kleiner Anteil befindet sich auch im oberen Drittel des fol ikulären Epithels (Grafik 1). Wenn eine angemessene Energiequel e (wie ein Laser) auf die Haut gerichtet wird, wird das Licht v.a. vom Melanin im Haar absorbiert. Dabei wird Hitze erzeugt, die in das benachbarte fol ikuläre Epithel diffundiert. Ein ähnliches Prinzip wird zur Behandlung von krankhaften Gefäßveränderungen verwendet. Hier wandert die vom Hämoglobin absorbierte Hitze vom Blut zu den Endothelzel en der Gefäße.

Richter, Joachim; Müller-Stöver, Irmela; Walter, Susanne; Mehlhorn, Heinz; Häussinger, Dieter Kopfläuse – Umgang mit einer wieder auflebenden Parasitose Head Lice – Handling the Resurgence of a Parasitosis Deutsches Ärzteblatt 102, Ausgabe 36 vom 09.09.2005, Seite A-2395 / B-2016 / C-1909 MEDIZIN Zusammenfassung Die Inzidenz des Kopflausbefalls in Deutschland hat in den letzten Jahren zugenommen und ist heute höher als in den 1960er-Jahren. Der sprunghafte Anstieg des Bedarfs an Pedikuloziden nach den Sommerferien spricht für einen bedeutenden Einfluss importierter Infektionen. Entgegen den Empfehlungen des Robert Koch-Instituts werden Kinder immer noch vom Schulunterricht oder der Kindergartenbetreuung ausgeschlossen, weil sie nach einer Behandlung nicht „nissenfrei" seien. Diese Praxis ist kontraproduktiv, weil sie die Kinder stigmatisiert und die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Eltern, Kindergarten- und Schulpersonal und den Gesundheitsbehörden behindert. Die Evaluation von Resistenzen gegenüber den in Deutschland verfügbaren Pedikuloziden, wie natürlichen und synthetischen Pyrethroiden und Lindan, wird dadurch erschwert. Wegen aufkommender Pedikulozidresistenzen in verschiedenen Regionen der Welt müssen weitere Alternativen, wie Malathion und Ivermectin geprüft werden. Schlüsselwörter: Kopflaus, Parasitose, Reisemedizin, Pedikulozid, Permethrin Summary Head Lice – Handling the Resurgence of a Parasitosis The incidence of head lice in Germany is higher than in the sixties and has increased continously during the last years. The increasing demand for pediculicides following the summer vacations suggests an influence of imported infections. Contrary to the recommendations of the central German Public Health Institution Robert Koch-Institut, children in Germany are still being excluded from school or kindergarten, unless they are not free of nits. The „no nit policy" is counterproductive, because it leads to stigmatisation and hinders the cooperation between parents, kindergarten, school personnel, and public health institutions. Moreover, it hampers the evaluation of resistances against pediculocides available in Germany, such as natural and synthetic pyrethroids and lindane. Since these resistances are observed in several regions of the world, alternatives, such as malathion and ivermectin, have to be evaluated. Key words: head lice, parasitosis, travel medicine, pediculicide, permethrine Die Inzidenz des Kopflausbefalls in Deutschland nimmt in den letzten Jahren zu und ist heute höher als in den 1960er-Jahren. Dafür sprechen Verkaufszahlen der Hersteller von Läusemitteln in Deutschland und Daten aus anderen Ländern Europas (1). Der jedes Jahr sprunghafte Anstieg des Bedarfes an Läusemitteln nach den Sommerferien deutet auf einen Zusammenhang mit der zunehmenden Mobilität der Bevölkerung und damit verbundenen importierten Infektionen (Andreas Rauschenbach, persönliche Mitteilung, 2005). Da keine personenbezogene Meldepflicht besteht, ist jedoch eine zuverlässige Einschätzung der Situation nicht möglich. Bei einer Befragung an einer Düsseldorfer Grundschule gaben fast 85 Prozent der Schüler an, bereits einmal von Kopfläusen befallen gewesen zu sein. Schul- und Kindergartenleiter zeichneten auf einer Informationsveranstaltung in Neuss ein ähnliches Bild: Kopfläuse seien ständige Gäste, und Mütter reagierten panisch (2). Drei Läusespezies besiedeln den Menschen: - die Kopflaus, Pediculus humanus capitis - die Kleiderlaus, Pediculus humanus humanus seu vestimentorum, und - die Filzlaus, Phthirus pubis. Läuse sind strikt humanspezifische Ektoparasiten, Tierläuse können sich beim Menschen nicht entwickeln. Lausinfektionen begleiten die Evolution des Menschen möglicherweise seit seiner Entwicklung. Molekulargenetische Untersuchungen zeigen, dass die Kleiderlaus sich vor 70 000 bis 30 000 Jahren von der Kopflaus differenziert hat. In diesem Zeitraum hat der Homo sapiens sein Fell

i n t r O d u c t i O nDebriefing has been shown to improve clinical behavior during cardiac resuscitation and, as such, has become a recommended procedure in the 2010 European Resuscitation Council Guidelines for Resuscitation. Edelson and colleagues reported that the number of patients achieving return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) at a university hospital in the Midwest of the US increased from 44.6% to 59.4% (p=.03) when weekly debriefing sessions were conducted.1 This guide has been developed to provide guidelines for debriefing the key measures of care that can have a significant impact on outcomes from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

Dental recommendations for preventing complications in patients with chronic conditions health partners research foundation edent study

Dental Recommendations for Preventing Complications in Patients with Chronic Conditions Health Partners Research Foundation eDent Study Health Partners Research Foundation (HPRF) has recently received a grant from The Agency for Health Research and Quality to improve quality and safety of dental care for patients with chronic illness. This project hopes to improve patient outcomes by increasing HealthPartner dentists awareness and clinical decision-making for patients with chronic conditions by identifying problems and providing the dental recommendations. The study will evaluate the effectiveness of simple alert reminders to the dentist and/or patient that special dental care is needed because of the presence of a chronic condition to reduce complications during care. The patient's electronic medical record will be used to identify patients with chronic illnesses. The project will utilize the electronic dental record to provide an alert and information to dentists and a personal health record to provide an alert and information to patients about their condition. The four chronic conditions include congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes mellitus, conditions or medications causing xerostomia.
