Psychoanalysis and its application in the biological area. The area of Psychology already presents a lot of research in the context, looking for artificial and laboratory situations; however, the importance of contextual analysis of the individual as a whole, of their daily activities and, from this, the understanding of their perceptions. Through psychoanalysis it is possible to observe widely the subject as a whole, not focusing on the presence of organic or genetic disorders, Ansermet (2003) addresses this problem by stating that “We cannot see the subject only as someone who manifests an organic or mental defect, according to the logic of disability”. The systems that compose and organize the environment, according to Bronfenbrenner (1996), are constituted by the fitting of concentric structures called microsystem, what presents itself as the most active and direct contact environments, such as family, school or social work relationships; mesosystem referring to two or more environments of active social participation; exosystem, understood as environments that influence events that take place in the immediate environment of social relationship; and macrosystem, which comprise, in addition to the behavior of individuals, the connections between other people, the nature of bonds and the direct or indirect influence on the developing individual in the contexts in which they live and act actively. The use of psychoanalysis as a tool to decipher possible ...

A severe case of toxic epidermal necrolysis which started with agep-like features: Does a new clinical type of drug eruption?

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports A severe case of toxic epidermal necrolysis which started with AGEP-like features: Does a new clinical type of drug eruption? Sevil Alan Akdeniz University School of Medicine Department of Dermatology and Venereology. Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are adverse cutaneous reactions. Despite the fact that these 2 cutaneous reactions differ in presentation, prognosis, pathologic features, and treatment, overlap can exist between them, creating a diagnostic challenge. It has rarely been reported that AGEP overlaps or mimics TEN, while TEN which starting by multıple pustules like AGEP has not been reported. The present study reports a rare case of a 14-year-old male patient with the clinical manifestations of multiple purulent bullae caused by amoxycillin ingestion. On 3. day dermatological examination revealed flaccid bullae and epidermal splitting with positive Nikolsky’s sign on right pectoral area, erosions on oral and anogenital mucosa. Histopathologic examination showed a massive inflammatory infiltration and epidermal necrosis indicated Steven Johnson syndrome. Later on added systemic symptoms with haemodynamic, respiratory imbalance and the patient was exitus. The case is discussed to reveal whether a new clinical pattern of drug eruption has been identified. We describe a patient with TEN who presented initially with clinical features of acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP). To the best of our knowledge, one report drug eruption with purulent bulla and epidermal necrolysis has previously been documented, and therefore the present study is the second case report of its kind. Because the initial presentation of such adverse drug reactions may vary, diagnosis is difficult and dermatologists must careful the possibility of mimics among adverse cutaneous reactions.

SYNTHETIC MOLECULES APPLIED IN THE TREATMENT OF TYPE 2 DIABETES

Review Article of International Research Journal of Diabetes and Metabolism Synthetic molecules applied in the treatment of type 2 diabetes João Alberto Lins de Lima1, 2, Rafael Artur Queiroz Cavalcanti de Sá3, Viviane Ramos Bandeira3, Francisco Henrique da Silva3, Matheus Alves Siqueira de Assunção4, Fálba Bernadete Ramos dos Anjos4, Bárbara de Azevedo Ramos2 1Departent of Chemistry, Rural Federal University of Pernambuco; 2Department of Antibiotics, Federal University of Pernambuco,  Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil; 3Department of Biochemistry, Federal University of Pernambuco,  Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil; 4Department of Histology and Embryology, Federal University of Pernambuco,  Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil Diabetes is considered a multifactorial disease that afflicts populations of the most diverse classes worldwide, being among the main health problems today. Among the types of diabetes, type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM-2) is considered the most prevalent pathology. This is due to the direct relationship between the cause of this disease and people’s eating behavior. These factors justify the growing search for the development of drugs for DM-2, given that current drugs act on targets that are not very efficient for the treatment. Therefore, the objective of this review is to evaluate the progress of research related to the search for new synthetic drugs for a more selective treatment for DM-2. The researches were searched in the main academic databases (National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), Science Direct and Google Scholar), and research tools such as Drug Bank and Clinical Trials. Seventy articles were selected that were causally related to the descriptors used. According to the survey, about 60 compounds of synthetic origin were found and present in the various phases of the study and some molecules already approved for use. A variety of strategies and new therapies related to DM-2 grows each year, as new targets involved are elucidated. Therefore, it is possible to envision a ...

In addition, to strengthening local culture and offering cheaper labor, this practice is an alternative to conventional therapies. The use of these plants in metabolic disorders has been studied worldwide. It has shown promising results in reducing glycemic levels and profiles related to diabetes, such as LDL lipid profile, total cholesterol, triglycerides, and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c). These results can be potential sources for pharmacological treatments, through the production of medicines, as well as the implementation of these plants in the diet, dispensing with the use of commercialized drugs.
