|DB00138||Cystine||It has been claimed that L-cysteine has anti-inflammatory properties, that it can protect against various toxins, and that it might be helpful in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. More research will have to be done before L-cysteine can be indicated for any of these conditions. Research to date has mostly been in animal models.|
|DB00435||Nitric Oxide||For the treatment of term and near-term (>34 weeks) neonates with hypoxic respiratory failure|
|DB00822||Disulfiram||For the treatment and management of chronic alcoholism|
|DB02486||2-Hydroxyethyl Disulfide||Not Available|
|DB04570||Latamoxef||Latamoxef is an oxacephem antibiotic usually grouped with the cephalosporins. It is used to treat bacterial infections. Latamoxef is primarily indicated in conditions like Bone and joint infection, GI infections, Gynecological infections, Meningitis, Respiratory tract infections, Septicaemia, Skin infections, Soft tissue infections, UTI. |
|DB06690||Nitrous oxide||Not Available|
|DB07623||4,4'-DIPYRIDYL DISULFIDE||Not Available|
|DB09068||Vortioxetine||Vortioxetine is indicated for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD).|
|DB09140||Oxygen||Oxygen therapy in clinical settings is used across diverse specialties, including various types of anoxia, hypoxia or dyspnea and any other disease states and conditions that reduce the efficiency of gas exchange and oxygen consumption such as respiratory illnesses, trauma, poisonings and drug overdoses. Oxygen therapy tries to achieve hyperoxia [L745] to reduce the extent of hypoxia-induced tissue damage and malfunction. |
|DB09152||Nitrogen||Liquid nitrogen is used mainly as a cryogenic agent for the treatment of various benign and malignant skin lesions. |
|DB09155||Helium||For use in patients who are not getting enough oxygen into their blood due to blockages in the lungs from pathological conditions or injuries. Suggested potential benefit in upper airway obstruction, in severe asthma, and in exacerbations of COPD/COLD. Helium may be used in place of carbon monoxide during laparoscopic surgeries as it lowers the risk of developing respiratory acidosis in selected patients. |
|DB09157||Carbon dioxide||Carbon dioxide is commonly used as an insufflation gas for minimal invasive surgery (laparoscopy, endoscopy, and arthroscopy) to enlarge and stabilize body cavities to provide better visibility of the surgical area. It has been used also in cryotherapy and as respiratory stimulant before and after anesthesia. It could be used also in expansion of blood vessels if required, to increase carbon dioxide level after rapid breathing, and to stimulate breathing after a period of nonbreathing. |
|DB11104||Sulfur hexafluoride||Echocardiography: Sulfur hexafluoride is indicated for use in adult patients with suboptimal echocardiograms to opacify the left ventricular chamber and to improve the delineation of the left ventricularendocardial border.
Ultrasonography of the Liver: Sulfur hexafluoride is indicated for use with ultrasound of the liver in adult and pediatric patients to characterize focal liver lesions.|
|DB11118||Ammonia||- Indicated for use as a smelling salt to treat or prevent fainting.
- (when radiolabelled) Indicated for diagnostic PET imaging of the myocardium under rest or pharmacologic stress conditions to evaluate myocardial perfusion in patients with suspected or existing coronary artery disease [FDA Label].|
|DB11159||Sodium sulfide||Not Available|
|DB11588||Carbon monoxide||Used as a marker of respiratory status in spirometry tests [L2557], [F4].
Food additive for pigment fixation in meat [L2531].|
|DB11589||Neon||Indicated for use as a diagnostic tracer gas in pulmonary function tests. |
|DB05389||Tetrachlorodecaoxide||Investigated for use/treatment in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and aids-related infections, cancer/tumors (unspecified), HIV infection, and inflammatory disorders (unspecified).|
