The Integrative Effects of Brain Function Squatemetry and Acetyl L-Carnitine in the Management of Cognitive Disorders.A. Ekwerike.Neurosquatemetry & Sciencemedicine Research, Dallas, Texas.USAPosted By : Sciencemedicine on 14-04-2013


  Introduction: This study examines an innovative model of cognition disorder investigation and the integrative management with brain function squatemetry and Acetyl-L-Carnitine. Brain function squatemetry is a cerebral information procession profile device based on the Brodmann's cerebral area mapping that scopes calculatively, the electrochemical activities of the cortex while Acetyl L-Carnitine is (ALC) is an ester of the trimethylated amino acid, L-carnitine, and is synthesized in th

Correlation Of Patient Enablement Instrument (PEI) With HA1C In An Out-Patient Population. Presented at the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) at Pittsburgh, 2007 * Remigius Okea, MD. Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center (BLHC), Bronx, NYPosted By : Remigius Okea on 14-04-2013


Abstract: Quantitative measurement of Patient Centered Care (PCC) with the Patient Enablement Instrument (PEI) and correlating such measure with established disease outcomes such as hemoglobin A1C is the subject of this study. Method: The design was a retrospective-cohort. Patient enablement instrument (PEI) was administered to a clustered sample of diabetics, who visited Bronx-Lebanon Family Medicine (BLHFM) clinics during the 3 months of the study. Using a computerized patient medical and la

Innovating Occupational Health and Safety Practices in OR services in the Tropics; A perspective presentation for a scholarly or research based educational qualification.Posted By : on 06-05-2013


My background of Anesthesia, MBA and MPH (Occupational and environmental Health) and having been erstwhile President of LUTH ARD (Association of Resident doctors) have culminated in the experiences that now drive my passion in this area of research work. In our tropical region there is little or no attention paid to the occupational health of medical and health personnel; this situation is worse amongst Operating room staff, yet this area of practice is fraught with many hazards. There are many

  ABSTRACT: The objectives of Community Directed Treatment with Ivermectin (CDTI) opted by Nigeria for the control of river-blindness is to reduce disease  prevalence and intensity  to a level where it is no longer a public health problem, and also eliminate transmission. This study was carried out in Wogan a hypoendemic community in Nasarawa State to determine the status of river-blindness transmission by the vector Similium damnosum  complex  in the community after n

Distribution of ecto-nucleotidases in mouse sensory circuits suggests roles for nucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase-3 in nociception and mechanoreception 1H. Usman-Vongtau, E. Lavoie, J.

  ABSTRACT Nucleotide-activated P2X channels and P2Y metabotropic receptors participate in nociceptive signaling. Agonist availability is regulated by nucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase-1 (NTPDase1), -2, -3, and -8, a family of enzymes that hydrolyze extracellular ATP to generate ADP (a P2Y agonist) and AMP. They provide a major source of extracellular AMP, the substrate for adenosine production by ecto-5'-nucleotidase (NT5E), and thereby regulate adenosine (P1) receptor signaling

Give me DDT To Save Fifty Million Lives from Malaria: Give me Life before Food. Remigius Okea; MD, MPH (ScM.D): American Academy of Primary Care Research Presented at the AAPCR 1st Tropical Disease Global Faculty Conference, Seeking Innovation for the Eradication of Tropical DiseasePosted By : Remigius Okea on 02-06-2013


  Introduction: Malaria and DDT: Malaria ravaged the whole world and before 1949 it was endemic in the United States; that year CDC declared malaria eradicated from the USA. It was also eradicated from most of the western countries before 1970 through an aggressive eradication program aided by the use of DDT (Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane).   Perspectives:  Today according to the WHO World Malaria Report 2005 3.2 billion people live in 107 Malaria endemic countries and are

Treat Malaria Today and Eradicate the Disease Today: A model for Disease Eradication Strategy for Endemic Regions. Remigius Okea, (MD, MPH) ScM.D: American Academy of Primary Care Research, American Hope Institute and Colleges, ScienceMedicine Research Institute.Posted By : Remigius Okea on 02-06-2013


Problem: There has been a lack of organized strategy to unify the treatment of malaria and many tropical diseases, and a lack of continuous effort to re-educate the physicians and health providers with the latest advances in the field of tropical medicine in Nigeria and Africa. More importantly there has been a lack of conceptual framework for the treatment-eradication of malaria or other tropical diseases. Statistical and demographic data are lacking even in many institutional settings. This h
