The article offers information on studies and a review on medical topics. A randomized controlled trials of nearly 116.000 patients confirmed the cardiovascular safety nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). A review from Health Canada showed that undeclared ingredients in natural dietary supplements could enhance weight loss. Moreover, a trial observed that children with acute otitis who received amoxicillin-clavulanate had evidence of clinical failure after 10 days of administration.
