Importance of universal precautions in HIV, HBV, HCV positive patients
DK Sinha
April-June 2016, 2(2):5-7
Universal precautions (UP) are control guidelines designed to protect Health Care workers (HCW) from exposure to iseases spread by blood and other body fluids. This article reviews universal precautions include, hand washing, decontamination of equipment and devices , use and disposal of needles and sharps safely (no recapping), wearing protective items, prompt cleaning up of blood and body fluid spills, systems for safe collection of waste and disposal. All health care workers must learn the importance of good hygiene and hand washing techniques. Consider every patient as a potent source of infection unless proved otherwise. Despite increasing medical facilities, risk of acquiring infection by both patients and health care worker (HCW) from each other remains high in a health care setup 1 Hospital acquired infections (HAI) are an important cause of death globally. A variety of different microbes (commensals, pathogenic bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi) cause HAI among HCW. HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C are the most frequently acquired infections. The term ‘universal precautions’ has been replaced by the term ‘Standard precautions’. These are designed to reduce the risk of transmission of microorganisms in health care set-up and reduce morbidity. This article reviews the standard precautions for minimizing HAI2,3.

Efficacy and safety of gliptins in patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
Mita B Shah, Prashant Rajput, Bharat V Shah
April-June 2016, 2(2):2-4
Introduction: Gliptins are a new class of oral hypoglycemic agents that inhibit Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP– 4) and improve glycemic control through enhancement of the incretin axis. They are not associated with hypoglycemia and they do not cause weight gain. However, there is no Indian study about the efficacy and safety of DPP-4 inhibitors in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The aim of the study was to determine the efficacy and safety of gliptins in patients with T2DM and CKD. Methods: Twenty nine (Male 17 and female 12) patients with T2DM and CKD (creatinine clearance < 60 ml/min) were included in the study. These subjects were started on gliptin for increasing number of hypoglycemia episodes with existing therapy (insulin and/or secretogogue). With introduction of gliptin, the dose of existing antihyperglycemic therapy was reduced. All these patients were followed for a minimum period of 6 months. The glycemic control, number of hypoglycemic episodes, weight and creatinine clearance were monitored. Results: The mean (SD) age of study subjects was 64 (11) years. The mean (SD) HBA1 c at the start of gliptin was 8.1 (1.4). After 6 months it was 7.9 (1.5). There was only 1 episode of hypoglycemia in 1 patient. The mean (SD) weight before the start of gliptin was 72.3 (10.6) kg and 6 months later it was 71.9 (10.9) kg. The mean (SD) creatinine clearance at the time of introducing gliptin was 29 (12) ml/min. After 6 months it was 28 (13) ml/min. All patients tolerated gliptin well and there was no adverse effect in any patient. Conclusion: Gliptins are effective hypoglycemic agents for T2DM with CKD. They are not associated with hypoglycemic episodes, do not cause weight gain and are well tolerated.
