Evaluating the Effects of Intravenous Lipid Emulsion on Some Lipophilic Drugs Toxicity in Adult Male Albino Rats (Beni Sweif University)
Egypt (IFMSA Egypt) - Beni Sweif University, Beni Sweif city
Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
Intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) is composed of triglycerides and phospholipids emulsifier. It provides calories and essential fatty acids within total parenteral nutrition (TPN) (Bania, et al., 2007). As local anesthetics are commonly used in the emergency department, overdoses can lead to disastrous complications including cardiac toxicity and arrest (Tierney, et al., 2016). So that, ILE has been reported to reverse cardiovascular collapse in overdoses of local anesthetic agents in addition to other medications. Over recent years, the use of lipid emulsions for the treatment of severe cardio toxicity has spread from bupivacaine to other cardio toxins, including antipsychotic agents and antidepressants (Jamaty, et al., 2010). Poisoning is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in many countries. In 1955, poisoning was the most common cause of death in patients aged between 35 and 44 years. Tramadol was first manufactured in Germany in 1970 to relieve post-surgical and chronic pains (Ahmadi, et al., 2011). Tramadol is a synthetic opioid analgesic commonly prescribed for moderate to severe pain, usual doses being up to 200 mg/day (McKeon, et al., 2011).
What is the aim of the project?
• To assess the effects of ILE in treatment of Tramadol and Haloperidol toxicity on different biochemical and pathological parameters of liver, kidney and brain of the albino rat.
What techniques and methods are used?
This study was done to assess the effects of intravenous lipid emulsion in treatment of Tramadol and Haloperidol toxicity on different biochemical (alanine transaminase, Aspartate aminotransferase, Glucose, Albumin, Urea, Creatinine and creatine phosphokinase.) and pathological parameters of liver, kidney and brain in adult male albino rats. The study was carried out on 180 adult male albino rats weighting 150-200g. The duration of the study was two days. Animals were weighed and randomly allocated into six groups (30 rats each)
What is the role of the student?
- The student will mainly observe
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
1.Monitor and write down the Effect of different doses of Intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) on liver and kidney Function Tests and CPK in: - Tramadol 200 mg group - Tramadol 250 mg group 2. Monitor and write down the Effect of different doses of Intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) on liver and kidney Function Tests and CPK in Haloperidol 2.6 mg group Yes, there'll be Analytical Data Analysis Performed by the: Author No Specific Software will be used The Student will also: 1. Monitor and observe the analytic procedure steps, taking notes on each steps. 2. Assist in the procedures done through the analytical process.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
There will be a preliminary lectures and seminars Who will perform them? – The Tutor How often would they happen? – Once / Week
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a presentation - The student will prepare a scientific report
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
The knowledge of the initial or basic level of molecular biology, biochemistry, Forensic & Toxicology.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
