Growth Factor as a Supportive Treatment in Chemotherapy
Timothy Allen, MD, Ph.D*, Giridhar M.N.V, MD,MBA*, Ghazaleh Shoja E Razavi MD

Even after a lot of advancements have been made in the treatment patterns of the various malignancies, there are still a number of dose-limiting toxicities associated with chemotherapy. Most of these toxicities are of hematological nature. Hence, there is always a need of supportive care treatment to assist these cytotoxic drugs. The main aim of supportive care is not only to relieve the adverse effects but also to improve the living quality of the sufferer. Hence, the pharmacologic agents that can readily improve the recovery of hematological functions can be the potential candidate for supportive care treatment.

Assessment of Individual Sperm Proteins as a Reliable Method for Determination of the Cryopreservation Technique of Choice


Mohamed S. A. Mohamed*, MBBCh, MSc, MD

Spermatozoa cryopreservation is an integral part of assisted reproductive technology, which is used for the management of infertility and some other medical conditions. Various cryopreservation procedures have been introduced. The most frequently applied techniques for comparing these procedures are subjective and objective cellular biology techniques. This manuscript represents the author’s viewpoint regarding the importance of applying the molecular biology assessment of proteins as markers of physiological parameters and fertilizing ability of post-thawing spermatozoa.
