61. Chinese medicinal herbs to treat the side-effects of chemotherapy in breast cancer patients.

Chinese medicinal herbs to treat the side-effects of chemotherapy in breast cancer patients. BACKGROUND: Short term side-effects of chemotherapy include fatigue, nausea, vomiting, mucositis and myelosuppression or neutropenia. These occur during the course of treatment and generally resolve within months of completion of chemotherapy. A variety of Chinese medicinal herbs have been used for managing these side effects. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness and safety of Chinese medicinal herbs (...) in alleviating chemotherapy-induced short term side effects in breast cancer patients. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched The Cochrane Breast Cancer Specialised Register (15/02/2007), The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL); (The Cochrane Library 2006, Issue 4); MEDLINE (1966 to December 2006); EMBASE (1990 to December 2006); and Chinese Biomedical Literature (2006, Issue 4).

Commentary Hypercapnic acidosis (HA) is often thought of as a tolerated side effect of lung protective ventilation strategies. There is a growing body of experimental evidence, however, suggesting that HA may be intrinsically protective in ventilator-induced lung injury and acute lung injury (ALI) [ – ] and that buffering HA may

78. Selenoprotein synthesis and side-effects of statins.

Selenoprotein synthesis and side-effects of statins. Statins are possibly the most effective drugs for the prevention and treatment of hypercholesterolaemia and coronary heart disease. They are generally well tolerated, however, they do cause some unusual side-effects with potentially severe consequences, most prominently myopathy or rhabdomyolysis and polyneuropathy. We noted that the pattern of side-effects associated with statins resembles the pathology of selenium deficiency, and postulated (...) that the mechanism lay in a well established, but often overlooked, biochemical pathway--the isopentenylation of selenocysteine-tRNA([Ser]Sec). A negative effect of statins on selenoprotein synthesis does seem to explain many of the enigmatic effects and side-effects of statins, in particular, statin-induced myopathy.
