Sickle cell disease is one of the most common monogenic diseases globally, and the first disease where the genetic etiology was defined. It is common in sub Saharan Africa, the Middle East and India. This collection explores the advantages of newborn screening for sickle cell disease.

Following this, the authors assess the costs of using continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy for type 1 diabetes treatment. Scientific evidence has shown improvement in glycated hemoglobin levels, and in the reduction of glycemic oscillations and hypoglycemia episodes when compared to multiple-dose insulin therapy.

Also assessed in this compilation are different analysis techniques, including spectrometry, chromatography and electrochemistry, used quantitatively and qualitatively to determine tadalafil pharmaceutical dosage forms.
The authors discuss different risk factors pertaining to eye drop instillation and manipulation in glaucoma patients’ daily tasks, analyzing the different classes of hypotensive ocular agents.

Prostatic inflammation, or prostatitis, is the most common prostatic disease in men and it can progress to more serious conditions, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia and/or prostate cancer. As such, factors that could be related to inflammatory process in prostate, particularly the endocrine components, are addressed.

Indocyanine green video angiography has been used for several medical applications in the recent decades. As a result, the authors describe the main neurosurgical applications and surgical results obtained by a senior vascular neurosurgeon.

In one study, the antidepressant effects of three dosages forms of Guduchi are assessed using a behavioral despair test in depression. A statistical analysis was carried out via one-way ANOVA test followed by Tucky and Kramer multiple comparison tests.

The penultimate study was conducted among 611 pregnant women who satisfy inclusion criteria in Bahir Dar town, northwest Ethiopia, wherein a multivariate analysis was employed to identify factors associated with dietary practices and nutrition status.

The concluding chapter addresses current issues in direct-to-consumer marketing of behavioral health care services and offers several recommendations for its application.
