Random information on the term “Spasm”:
An antispasmodic (synonym: spasmolytic) is a pharmaceutical drug or other agent that suppresses muscle spasms.
One type of antispasmodics is used for smooth muscle relaxation, especially in tubular organs of the gastrointestinal tract. The effect is to prevent spasms of the stomach, intestine or urinary bladder.Both dicyclomine and hyoscyamine are antispasmodic due to their anticholinergic action. Both of these drugs have general side effects and can worsen gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Mebeverine is a muscolotropic spasmolytic with a strong and selective action on the smooth muscle spasm of the gastrointestinal tract, particularly of the colon. It does not have the acetylecholine side effect commonly seen in an anticholinergic antispasmodic.
Papaverine is an opium alkaloid used to treat visceral spasms, erectile dysfunction and investigated as antipsychotic drug due to its potency to inhibit phosphodiesterase PDE10A.
Peppermint oil has been traditionally used as an antispasmodic, and a review of studies on the topic found that it “could be efficacious for symptom relief in IBS” (as an antispasmodic) although more carefully controlled studies are needed. A later study showed it is an effective antispasmodic when test-applied topically to the intestine during endoscopy.
Random information on the term “TIC”:
The Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment (CEBE, formerly the Faculty of Technology, Engineering and the Environment or TEE) is the technology department of Birmingham City University, England, covering engineering programmes. It is located in the City Centre campus in the eastern half of the Millennium Point complex. Spanning five stories of the £114 million complex in the developing Eastside district, the centre offers courses in undergraduate and postgraduate education.
From September 2000, the Faculty of CEBE was previously known as the Technology Innovation Centre, but during 2008, the faculty began the process of rebranding and was temporarily known as Technology Innovation and Development until autumn 2009 when TIC was renamed to the Faculty of Technology, Engineering and the Environment. The faculty now includes the Department of Computing which has combined with TIC’s departments of software, networks, telecommunications and electronics; and the School of Property, Construction and Planning, forming four schools including School of Computing, Telecommunications and Networks (CTN); School of Digital Media Technology; School of Engineering, Design and Manufacturing Systems (EDMS); and School of Property, Construction and Planning. The rebranding coincides with the development of a new campus in the city’s Eastside regeneration scheme. In 2014, the faculty was again rebranded to be the Faculty of CEBE.
