A rare case of ovarian granulosa cell tumor with endometrial cancer presenting with post-menopausal bleeding.

Abstract : Ovarian granulosa cell tumors are rare and account for 2-5% of ovarian malignancy. Granulosa cell tumors showed some features of normal granulosa cells with estrogenic effects. Therefore, the diagnosis is usually by common ovarian symptoms or endometrial pathologies. Depending on age estrogen, excess symptoms might be present. A high level of estrogen, steroid hormones excess, age, the presence of symptoms, and the presence of p53 mutation are the risk factors. Therefore, endometrial biopsy is m


Oxidative Stress Marker Malondialdehyde and Gen Expression Level SOD in Hypertension Patients

Abstract : The development of technology in all areas of life has effects on people's behavior patterns and habits. Which results in hypertension gaining increasing prevalence and resulting in various complications. This study aims to provide an overview of plasma MDA levels and antioxidant gene expression SOD1 and SOD2 in hypertension patients: This study is an analytical observational with a case-control research design approach in the Angke sub-district, Tambora district, West Jakarta. A total of 60 res


Genetic and metabolic changes associated with consumption of repeated heated oils and advanced glycation end products (AGEs) on thyroid gland and liver in rats.

Abstract : Junk foods have become widely popular in recent years and It's a popular cooking practice to repeatedly heat vegetable oils at high degrees during cooking. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of consumption of repeated heated oils (RHOs) and advanced glycation end products (AGEs) on genetic and metabolic changes in male rats. Mixed vegetable oil (MVO) (sunflower and soybean) was heated at 180°C, then left to cool at room temperature to obtain once-heated time oil (1-THO). The heating and co


Post-Burn Contracture Release in Pediatric: A Case Report of Outreach Surgery in a Rural Remote Area

Abstract : Burn injury is one of the most common causes of hand contractures. In low and middle-income countries (LMICs), access to adequate burn management is often limited. This is a case report of neglected burn contractures that were released in Indonesia’s rural area, on a floating hospital. A 14 years-old girl presented with post-burn flexion contractures of her ring and little fingers’ proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint since she was 3 years old. She had never been treated and encountered func


Study of Neuroinflammation and Oxidative Stress Induced by Energy Drinks Consumption A Dose-Dependent Study

Abstract : Energy drinks are cold caffeinated beverages commonly used by adolescents and young adults for increasing physical strength and mental alertness. The global market of EDs has grown dramatically, while the evidence and concern about the potential health risks are also increasing. This study explores the possible effect of two different energy drinks consumption on oxidative stress and neuroinflammation. Fifty adult male Sprague Dawley rats, weighing 120±5g divided into five groups, ten rats in e


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
