Relation of the immunologic status of blastocystosis patients with the effectiveness of their therapy

Abstract : To study the presence of a relationship between the state of immunologic homeostasis and the effectiveness of blastocystosis therapy, the values of immunity indices were compared in 300 patients with blastocystosis in alternative groups: group A − with good therapeutic effect (n = 162) and group B − with satisfactory effect (n = 138). Group A included patients who had an overall clinical symptom regression rate of ≥33% after 1 month of treatment, and group B included patients who had an ov


Risk Factors for Methicillin Sensitive Staphylococcus aureus Colonization in Productive Age Residents in Guji Baru Village, West Jakarta

Abstract : Bacteria are the biggest cause of infectious diseases in humans. One of these bacteria is derived from Staphylococcus aureus. Staphylococcus aureus can cause a variety of infections from mild to life- threatening. Methicillin Sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) is a Staphylococcus aureus bacterium that is still sensitive or not resistant to antibiotics. Colonization of MSSA is one of the causes of infection in Staphylococcus aureus. This study aims to analyze the risk factors for MSSA coloniz


Effects of A Single Session Of Hemodialysis On Lung Function In Patients With Chronic Hemodialysis

Abstract : Theoretically, a single HD session could improve lung function by improving uremia and metabolic acidosis, and eliminate pulmonary edema by removing fluid by ultrafiltration. The aim of this study was to investigate changes in lung function after a course of HD treatment in patients with ESRD, using spirometry. Fifty seven ESRD patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis were studied. Pulmonary function test by spirometric test were performed before and after one single session hemodialysis. The av


Evaluation of antioxydant and antibacterial activities of squalene produced by Saccharomyces cerevisae strain under aerobic and anaerobic conditions

Abstract : The study focuses on the production of squalene from Saccharomyces cerevisiae for cosmetic or medical applications. Monitoring the growth kinetics of the yeast highlighted its metabolism under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions. The sugar-rich culture, along with the extraction techniques, demonstrated their efficiency following squalene analysis using HPLC and FT-IR. The antioxydante and antibacterial activities were tested.


Exploring the Determinants of Adherence to Pulmonary Tuberculosis Treatment During 2018-2023 in Indonesia: A Literature Review

Abstract : Indonesia's tuberculosis treatment success rate currently stands at 86.5%. Medication adherence is an important key to achieving treatment success. This literature review aims to provide an overview of factors contributing to medication adherence. Articles were obtained from the Scopus database, and a manual review was conducted using Google Scholar for accredited national journals in Indonesia in 2018-2023. A literature review was conducted on quantitative studies to identify factors associated


Development and Validation of a Semi-Quantitative Food Frequency Questionnaire for Sabah’s Multi-Ethnic Specific Dietary Practices

Abstract : Assessing dietary practices is valuable in public health research. Long-term habitual food intake is often the study of interest, and a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) is considered as the most appropriate method in this case. This study aimed to develop and assess the construct validity and reliability of a semi-quantitative FFQ. A total of 50 adults participated in the development of the FFQ, with 30 participants took part in the validity and reliability study. The FFQ consisting of 137 foo


Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Chitosan Nanoparticles in Bone Healing Around Dental Implants

Abstract : Dental implants are commonly used treatment options for prosthetic rehabilitation of missing teeth, but slow bone healing around implants may lead to early primary and secondary implant failure. The unique properties of nanoparticles chitosan, a natural bioactive material, can be used as a coating for implant fixation and integration at the bone-biomaterial interface. This study aims to highlight nanoparticles chitosan and its performance as an adjuvant in post-implant bone healing. The study sa


Frequencies of BCR-ABL1 fusion transcripts among chronic myeloid leukemia patients

Abstract : In most CML patients, the break in chromosome 22 is restricted to an area of 5.8-kb termed M-bcr. M-bcr consists of five exons termed M-bcr exons b1-b5. These exons are actually located within the central region of the BCR gene and are equivalent to exons 12-16 (e12- e16) of this gene. Most breaks occur immediately downstream of exon 2 or 3 of the M-bcr region and result in b2a2 or b3a2 fusion transcripts. To study the Frequencies of BCR-ABL1 Fusion Transcripts among Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Pat


Developing An Online Immunization Information System: An Application of Fuzzy Delphi Method

Abstract : The Fuzzy Delphi method has been widely used in numerous research disciplines to systematically collect expert input on a specific topic. It has also in recent years gained popularity in health-related research. This study aimed to apply Fuzzy Delphi Method in identifying elements for designing and developing an online immunization information system. Methodically, a list of items was collected from the literature review consists of elements and functions necessary in developing an immunization


EXPLORING THE POTENTIAL OF COLLAGEN, CHONDROITIN SULFATE, AND GLUCOSAMINE IN Stichopus hermanii FROM SELAYAR ISLANDS AS A BONE REMODELLING AGENT

Abstract : The main problem that often occurs after tooth extraction is bone damage. The alveolar bone will resorb by 40% to 60% after tooth extraction, making it difficult to rehabilitate dentures. Golden sea cucumber is rich in growth factors that have the potential to repair damaged cells after tooth extraction. The protein content of golden sea cucumber reaches up to 82%. This protein content is very important to function for bone remodeling so that alveolar bone preservation can be maintained. This st
