Quantitative pharmacodynamic (PD) methods are used to assess the effect of a drug on its target. The use of these methods in clinical cancer studies has increased enormously with the advent of targeted therapies in the past years. To ensure that quantitative PD methods meet their expectations, methods need to be validated according to internationally recognized standards for amongst others specificity, accuracy, sensitivity, precision and stability. We show that 87% of our selected clinical canc...

The success of such strategy depends on the commitment of all stakeholders (patients and healthcare professionals). Therefore, it is necessary to assess the correct application of this recommendation. We carried out the analysis of the prescription of antimalarial molecules based on the NMCP’s guidelines in Kangaba and Bougouni Health Centers dur...

Malaria is a major public health problem in the world, particularly in the developing countries where the disease is difficult to manage due to multi-drug resistant parasites. The study aimed to evaluate the antiplasmodial activity of Azadirachta indica in the treatment of malaria disease. Fresh leaves of Azadirachta indica were air-dried at room temperature for six weeks and pulverized into powder using electric blender. Two hundred and fifty grams (250g) of the crushed powder was weighed with ...
