Journal Highlights

General medicine

General medicine is that branch of medical science that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of internal organs.

General Surgery

General surgery is that branch of surgical speciality that deals with surgery on abdominal contents including oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gall bladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland. They also deal with diseases involving the skin, breast, soft tissue, trauma, vascular and non-vascular surgeries.

Adolescent Medicine

Adolescent medicine or geriatrics is a medical subspecialty that focuses on care of patients who are in the adolescent age. Patients have generally entered puberty, which typically begins between the ages of 11 and 13 for boys. In contrast to developing nation, the period of adolescence in a developed nation is extended both by an earlier start, as onset of puberty is beginning earlier, and a later end, requiring more years of education or training before economic independence from parents.

Prescription Drugs

A prescription drug/medicine is a pharmaceutical drug that legally requires a medical prescription to be dispensed usually by a pharmacist. In contrast, over-the-counter drugs can be obtained without a prescription. The reason for this difference in substance control is the potential scope of misuse, from drug abuse to practicing medicine without a license and without sufficient education.

Infectious Disease

Infectious diseases are caused by organisms — such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Some infectious diseases can be passed from person to person. Some are transmitted by bites from insects or animals. And others are acquired by ingesting contaminated food or water or being exposed to organisms in the environment. Signs and symptoms vary depending on the organism causing the infection, but often include fever and fatigue. Mild infections may respond to rest and home remedies, while some life-threatening infections may require hospitalization.

Preventive Medicine/Health care

Prophylactic medicines are those which are taken as a precaution to avoid some possible chance of infection or disease. These medicines are taken before the emergence of disease. In contrast a therapeutic medicine is used to treat a disease which has already occurred. Disease prevention relies on anticipatory actions that can be categorized as primal, primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention.

Clinical Trials

When a new medicine is discovered or a new therapeutic indication of an old drug is studied. It becomes important to know the safety and efficacy profile of the drug before taking it to market. Clinical researchers conduct studies on animal or human participants to have as much data as possible to conclude on the new or existing molecular entity.

Pathological Infections

Infection is caused by the invasion of a disease-causing agents. These agents usually produce toxins which is dangerous for the host tissue. Infections can be communicable or non-communicable.

Systemic Disease

Systemic disease affects both the organs and the body. General medicines are usually prescribed by a practitioner for such diseases. Some biochemical testing of patient’s stool, blood or urine is conducted to know about the causative organism.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Treatment of a disease is dependent upon the exact diagnosis. Proper diagnosis is achieved only by close examination of patient's sign and symptoms. Studying the patient's history and physical examination play an important part in proper diagnosis.
