    A retrospective study of 147 consecutive cases of suicidal digoxin poisoning was undertaken in order to determine the severity and outcome of toxicity without use of digoxin-specific Fab fragments. This study showed that suicidal digoxin poisoning in young patients is usually mild to moderate;...

    The article presents case studies of a 67-year-old Chinese woman and her 66-year-old husband who both diagnosed with cardiac glycoside poisoning from accidental foxglove ingestion. It suggests that quantitative serum digoxin levels do not correlate with measurements of toxins and cannot be used...

    c-Met is over-expressed in hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC) but is absent or expressed at low levels in normal tissues. Therefore we generated a novel conjugate of a human anti-c-Met Fab fragment (MetFab) with doxorubicin (DOX) and assessed whether it had targeted antitumor activity against HCC and...
