Acute infections or hematologic abnormalities that can cause priapism, such as sickled red blood cells, leukemia and platelet abnormalities, may be suggested or identified by the CBC. The reticulocyte count is often elevated in men with sickle cell anemia. Hemoglobin electrophoresis identifies the presence of sickle cell disease or trait as well as other hemoglobinopathies.

children with suspected SRBDs. Findings indicate that PSG may be particularly useful in the evaluation of children with chronic health conditions such as obe- sity, metabolic syndrome, overt or evolving hypertension, and other conditions associated with cardiovascular risk. There is a need for further investigation of SRBD in children with neuro- developmental and neuromuscular disorders, sickle cell anemia, craniofacial disorders, and certain infants who experience ALTEs.

343. Biopoin (epoetin theta)

and differentiation of red blood cell progenitors, leading to more red blood cells and increased oxygen-carrying capacity. Epoetin for clinical use is produced by recombinant DNA technology using mammalian cells as expression systems. All Epoetins in clinical use have a similar amino acid sequence as endogenous erythropoetin but differ in their glycosylation pattern. Glycosylation influences pharmacokinetics and may affect efficacy and safety. Biopoin containing the active substance epoetin theta, is obtained (...) by recombinant DNA technology and has the same biological effects as endogenous epoetin. It is produced by mammalian cells into which the human epoetin gene has been introduced. It contains r-HuEPO as the active active substance and is structurally similar to Epoetin alfa, Epoetin beta, and Epoetin delta. Epoetin theta belongs to the pharmacological class of chemically defined anti-anaemic drugs. Biopoin has been developed as a stand alone product. The Applicant is seeking approval for the indication

344. Kombiglyze XR (saxagliptin/metformin extended release) fixed dose combination tablets

hormones are released from the gastrointestinal tract during meals and stimulate insulin release from the pancreatic beta-cell in a glucose-dependent manner. DPP4 inhibitors increase the levels of intact glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). The intact GLP-1 regulates blood glucose via stimulation of glucose-dependent insulin secretion, delaying of gastric emptying, inhibiting of glucagon secretion, and as a result of all these actions, improves the pre-prandial and postprandial glycemic profile. Metformin (...) . For discussion of the results and conclusions from the bioequivalence studies please refer to the clinical pharmacology review. Mechanism of Action Saxagliptin: Saxagliptin is DPP4 inhibitor that decreases the inactivation of the incretin hormones glucagon- like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) which are released into bloodstream from the small intestine in response to meals. These hormones cause insulin release from pancreatic beta cells in a glucose-dependent manner

349. Oxygen: the poison is in the dose. (PubMed)

Oxygen: the poison is in the dose. Cell-free hemoglobin (Hb) has been blamed for a spectrum of problems, including vasoconstriction pancreatitis, myocardial infarction, and pulmonary hypertension in hemolytic anemia, malaria, and sickle cell anemia, and from Hb-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs). Toxicities have been attributed to scavenging of nitric oxide (NO). However, while NO scavenging may explain many in vitro effects, and some effects in animal models and clinical trials with HBOCs, key (...) inconsistencies in the theory require alternative explanations. This review considers the hypothesis that cell-free Hb oversupplies oxygen to tissues, leading to oxygen-related toxicity, possibly through formation of reactive oxygen species and local destruction of NO. Evidence for this hypothesis comes from various sources, establishing that tissue oxygen levels are maintained over very narrow (and low) levels, even at high oxygen consumption. Tissue is normally protected from excessive oxygen by its
