The Gazette of Medical Sciences adhere strictly to the policies and guidelines recommended by The Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). An article published in a peer-reviewed open access journal is a vital element in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. It is therefore important to set and accept certain standards and guidelines for the editors who are responsible for scrutinizing the articles and allow the publication of only useful and relevant content.

The Gazette of Medical Sciences is a peer-reviewed international journal, publishing bi-monthly issues in Open Access mode. It is indexed / archived by the major international indexing systems. The journal is committed to meeting and upholding standards of ethical behavior at all stages of the publication process. We follow closely the industry associations that set standards and provide guidelines for best practices in order to meet these requirements. The journal allows free access (Open Access) to its contents and permits authors to self-archive final accepted version of the articles. Read more..
At the turn of the 20th century medicine and physics seemed to be heading in two opposing if not mutually exclusive directions: medical science had asserted the primacy of the cell and had set out to integrate known chemical principles into cellular functioning; physics, on the other hand, had broken through the barriers of classical Newtonian mechanical laws and established the energetic basis of all physical substance. Something was bound to give.
It is difficult to imagine an area of scientific research, over the past century, that has been more controversial than the diet-heart health question. Even more unsettling is the fact that the hypotheses presented in this scholarly review often directly conflict with or reverse prevailing opinions. For example, many brave researchers are fully aware that dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) peroxidatively degrade to highly toxic lipid oxidation products (LOPs) such as chemically-reactive aldehydes when exposed to high-temperature frying, cooking or processing practices.
To diagnose diseases during gestation period including renal stones, appendicitis, and pulmonary embolism in pregnant patients, computed tomography (CT) can be a golden standard. Due to CT examination, the fetus is prone to receiving a considerable dose which is the result of direct or scattered (external and internal scattered radiation) beams. The effects of ionization radiation on fetus include mutagenesis and carcinogenesis, therefore, it is essential to reduce fetus dose for pregnant patients who undergo CT examination during gestation period. This article aims to review approaches that are effective in reducing fetal dose in pregnant patients.
In recent months unexpected reports have surfaced claiming the presence of magnetic attraction in the shoulder regions of subjects who had recently received the COVID-19 vaccination. To determine if such claims are legitimate or spurious, a prospective observational study was performed utilizing standard neodymium magnets and non-magnetized paper clips in a rigorously standardized application protocol. Magnets and paper clips were applied over various regions of both deltoid muscles. The attraction score was calculated by adding one point for each pole of the magnet that attached to each arm over the deltoid muscle for a maximum score of 4. Likewise, three sizes of paper clips were tested with a maximum score of 6. The field score was calculated by adding the magnet score to the paper clip score for a maximum score of 10 points
Traditional medicines, derived from plants, could present alternative treatment strategy for cancer therapy. One such plant is Momordica charantia (MC) which possesses anti-carcinogenic properties. This study investigated the anticancer effect of an ethanol extract of MC fruit, Kuguacin-J (K-J), an isolated compound from the leaves of MC and cisplatin, either alone or combination on healthy MCF-10A mammary cells and compared with breast cancer MCF-7 and MDAMB-231 cell lines.
Interest in modulating the immune response beyond glucocorticoids has existed since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Recent trials have shown promising results with IL-6 inhibitors such as tocilizumab although similar data on Sarilumab is lacking. In this report, we analyze the current evidence on Sarilumab in hospitalized COVID-19 patients to evaluate its efficacy.
Chronic degenerative diseases like obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, fatty liver, have gained high prevalence in the world, due to sedentarism, improper nutritional habits as well as alcohol and tobacco consumption. Studies have shown that regular consumption of breakfast leads to a wide range of benefits, especially for the liver. The liver is a key organ for metabolic homeostasis regulating and governing energy metabolism, mostly providing nutrients for reabsorption. Benefits of a nutrimental quality breakfast seem to help lower body mass index, prevent metabolic diseases, and overall improve quality of life. Unfortunately, these include either high cholesterol or high-sugar foods including cold cuts, bread, eggs, and sugary beverages. Also, much of the population’s work schedule relates to long hours and high-level of stress, therefore malnutrition, and inadequate eating schedules are common.
Multi-organ procurement was performed on a 48-year-old donor after the patient was declared brain dead. A standard approach was performed for two dissections of abdominal organs. During the cold phase of dissection, an additional left sided retro-aortic vein was identified. The second vein hadseparate opening to the inferior vena cava in addition to the normal positioned pre-aortic left renal vein. Both veins were divided close to the origin from the inferior vena cava. During the back table preparation, it was noticed that same volume of preservative fluid was identified to be draining from both veins. Both veins were isolated and anastomosed separately on the 61-year-old recipient. Patient was initiated on anti-platelet therapy and made successful recovery.
