Sildenafil citrate (SC) is a commonly used pharmaceutical compound in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Many side effects were reported for overdose including: headaches; fainting resulting from dilation of blood vessels, and blue-tinted vision. Many analytical methods are reported in literature for the assay of sildenafil citrate in its generic form or pharmaceutical formulations; these will be summarized in the present mini review.

Kowalewska, et al., "Severe neurological outcomes after very early bilateral nephrectomies in patients with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD).", Scientific reports, vol. 10, issue 1, pp. 16025, 2020. Abstract

To test the association between bilateral nephrectomies in patients with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) and long-term clinical outcome and to identify risk factors for severe outcomes, a dataset comprising 504 patients from the international registry study ARegPKD was analyzed for characteristics and complications of patients with very early (≤ 3 months; VEBNE) and early (4-15 months; EBNE) bilateral nephrectomies. Patients with very early dialysis (VED, onset ≤ 3 months) without bilateral nephrectomies and patients with total kidney volumes (TKV) comparable to VEBNE infants served as additional control groups. We identified 19 children with VEBNE, 9 with EBNE, 12 with VED and 11 in the TKV control group. VEBNE patients suffered more frequently from severe neurological complications in comparison to all control patients. Very early bilateral nephrectomies and documentation of severe hypotensive episodes were independent risk factors for severe neurological complications. Bilateral nephrectomies within the first 3 months of life are associated with a risk of severe neurological complications later in life. Our data support a very cautious indication of very early bilateral nephrectomies in ARPKD, especially in patients with residual kidney function, and emphasize the importance of avoiding severe hypotensive episodes in this at-risk cohort.

Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) is a severe disease of early childhood that is clinically characterized by fibrocystic changes of the kidneys and the liver. The main cause of ARPKD are variants in the PKHD1 gene encoding the large transmembrane protein fibrocystin. The mechanisms underlying the observed clinical heterogeneity in ARPKD remain incompletely understood, partly due to the fact that genotype-phenotype correlations have been limited to the association of biallelic null variants in PKHD1 with the most severe phenotypes. In this observational study we analyzed a deep clinical dataset of 304 patients with ARPKD from two independent cohorts and identified novel genotype-phenotype correlations during childhood and adolescence. Biallelic null variants frequently show severe courses. Additionally, our data suggest that the affected region in PKHD1 is important in determining the phenotype. Patients with two missense variants affecting amino acids 709-1837 of fibrocystin or a missense variant in this region and a null variant less frequently developed chronic kidney failure, and patients with missense variants affecting amino acids 1838-2624 showed better hepatic outcome. Variants affecting amino acids 2625-4074 of fibrocystin were associated with poorer hepatic outcome. Thus, our data expand the understanding of genotype-phenotype correlations in pediatric ARPKD patients and can lay the foundation for more precise and personalized counselling and treatment approaches.

Burki, M., and A. Abukhadra, "Sequence stratigraphic approaches for reservoir modeling, Arshad area, Sirt Basin, Libya", Journal of African Earth Sciences, vol. 151, pp. 1=8, 2019. AbstractWebsite

Sequence stratigraphic analysis has been used to support the reservoir geological modeling of the Upper Cretaceous succession of the Arshad area, Sirt Basin, Libya. Four major sedimentary cycles (1–4) can be distinguished in the succession of the Arshad area which can be related to the standard Mesozoic cycle charts. These cycles are bounded by five sequence boundaries (SB types 1 and 2). Sedimentary cycle number 1 is represented by retrogradational patterns (shale and minor carbonates) at the base of the Arshad Formation, which pinch out to the south. Sedimentary cycle number 2 comprises a prograding pattern in the lower part (Arshad Formation) passing upward into retrograding patterns of the Sirte Formation in the upper part. This cycle includes reworked clastics of the underlying (Cambro-Ordovician) Gargaf Formation. These sandstone-dominated shallow-marine facies include the principal hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs in the study area. The sedimentary cycles nos. 3 and 4 are composed mainly of shales and limestones (Sirte and Kalash formations), representing the main hydrocarbon source rocks and cap rocks for the underlying sandstone reservoirs in the Sirt Basin. These sediments trace the sea level changes, and increasing water depth above the major Hercynian sequence boundary. These sedimentary cycles are affected by syn-depositional tectonics which control the distribution of the hydrocarbon-bearing sands plus post-depositional changes (diagenesis) which affect the reservoir quality and performance (porosity-permeability relationship).

Abstract

Intravenous thrombolysis with tissue plasminogen activator is the only proven acute therapy for ischemic stroke. This therapy has not been translated into clinical practice in the developing world primarily due to economic constraints. Streptokinase, a lower cost alternative thrombolytic agent, is widely available in developing countries where it is utilized to treat patients with acute coronary syndromes. Although this drug has previously been found to be ineffective in ischemic stroke, the lack of benefit may have been related to a number of factors related to trial design rather than the drug itself. Specific features of prior trial designs that may have adversely affected outcomes include a prolonged treatment window, inclusion of patients with established infarction on computed tomography scan, failure to treat excessive arterial pressures, a fixed dose of streptokinase, and concomitant use of antithrombotic medications. Given the lack of therapeutic alternatives in developing countries, a new trial of streptokinase in acute stroke, utilizing stricter inclusion criteria similar to those in more recent thrombolytic studies, appears warranted.
