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


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


The role of radiotherapy in the management of ovarian cancer: literature review

Abstract : Ovarian cancer (OC) is one of the most lethal gynecological cancers, typically presenting at advanced stages of the disease with abdominal and pelvic cavity involvement. The management of these patients is often very challenging, with low survival and high relapse rates. Cytoreductive surgery, chemotherapy, and target therapy play the leading roles in treating OC patients. This review paper investigated the historical, present, and possible future role of radiation therapy (RT) in managing OC pa


Prevalence of Multidrug-Resistant (MDR) Gram-Negative Bacilli in Burn Infections among Patients at Al-Mouwasat Hospital, Damascus, Syria

Abstract : Burn infections pose a significant contribution to morbidity and mortality globally, particularly due to the emergence of multi-antibiotic-resistant strains, especially in developing nations. This study aims to ascertain the prevalence of Multidrug-Resistant (MDR) strains of gram-negative bacilli among patients with burn infections at the Burns and Plastic Surgery section in Al-Mouwasat Hospital. A total of 49 swabs were collected from patients between November 2023 and February 2024, at Al-Mouw


In Vitro, In Silico Anti-inflammatory and Secondary Metabolite Profiling in Peels of C. sinensis, C. nobilis, C. reticulata L., and C. maxima [Burm.]

Abstract : Citrus peel is a worthy bioactive compound source to develop. This research aims to (1) extract and analyze secondary metabolites in essential oils (EO) of Citrus sinensis peel (a), Citrus nobilis peel (b), Citrus reticulata L. peel (c), and Citrus maxima [Burm]. peel (d) using GCMS, (2) separate and analyze secondary metabolites in the fractions of each EO, (3) observe the anti-inflammatory of each EO by bovine albumin denaturation method, (4) analyze all secondary metabolites by in silico anti


Marginal Microleakage of Self-Adhesive Flowable Composite as a Pit-Fissure Sealants upon different Application Techniques: A Comparative In-Vitro Study

Abstract : The aim of the present study was to compare the microleakage of a self-adhesive composite (SAS) and a conventional resin-based fissure sealant using different application techniques. 100 intact human premolars with well-delineated pits and fissures were used and divided into 5 groups (n = 20). Group 1 specimens were etched (37% phosphoric acid) and sealed with conventional resin-based sealant (Helioseal F, Ivoclar Vivadent). In Group 2 Helioseal F was applied with bonding agent. For Group 3, pit


Oxidative Stress Biomarkers and 25 Hydroxy Vitamin D in Online Motorcycle Taxi Drivers in Jakarta, Indonesia

Abstract : Online motorcycle taxi drivers are frequently exposed to oxidative stress originating from air pollutants. Vitamin 25(OH)D is one of the potent antioxidants in the body. Studies on the relationship between vitamin 25(OH)D concentration and oxidative stress markers in online motorcycle taxi drivers are still rare. Objective of this study was to determine the differences between oxidative stress biomarkers levels in online motorcycle taxi drivers and control subjects, and the relationship of 25(O
