Effect of Alcoholic Extract of Pomegranate Peels on Klebsiella pneumonia and Escherichia coli

Abstract : Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumonia are common human pathogens that are responsible for causing a wide range of human infections, including urinary tract infections and many sexually transmitted diseases, which are raising a severe threat to public health and quality of life. Recently, many naturally occurring substances, including plants, have been interested in the production of therapeutic drugs. Pomegranate plants are proven to have considerable antibiotic and antimicrobial effects. Th

Vitamin D deficiency and its relation to type 2 diabetes

Abstract : Deficiency of vitamin D is linked to reduced insulin secretion and increasingly reported in type 2 diabetes mellitus in epidemiological as well as experimental studies. A trial of animals demonstrates that 1,25 dihydroxy vitamin D regulates the β cell of the pancreas for secretion of insulin. A connection between resistance of insulin and deficiency of vitamin D is influenced by presence of inflammatory marker is linked with vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D genetic mutation may predispose to typ

Prenatal Stress Exposure Alters Key Maternal and Offspring Reproductive Hormonal Profile: Nature of Stress Reversal Responses

Abstract : This study examined maternal and offspring reproductive hormone levels following prenatal stress exposure and the chances of nature of stress reversal responses in female Wistar rats. 72 Wistar rats weighing between 160-200g and aged between 12-14weeks was used for the phase I of the study while 18 offspring from stressed parents were utilized for phase II respectively. Three (3) stress models were used to induce stress in the animals. Serum LH, FSH, estrogen and progesterone was assayed using E

Effect of types of surgery on Quality of life of breast cancer patients, a study from eastern India

Abstract : Breast cancer has become the most common cancer in India. [GLOBCAN 2020].

Post-operative Complications in Post-Covid-19 Positive Cancer Patients: An Experience from a Tertiary Care Cancer Centre, Odisha.

Abstract : The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the highly contagious infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has led to many devastating consequences and a significant decrease in the access and search for diagnosis and treatment of other diseases that also have a historically major impact on public health, such as cancer. So we aimed to study the postoperative complications in post COVID-19 positive cancer patients. This retrospective observational,

TORCH in Repeated Miscarriage in Mosul City

Abstract : TORCH (Toxoplasmosis, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, and Herpes Simplex) infections are diagnosed by examining the blood for the presence of antibodies of the IgM, and IgG classes to the pathogens of toxoplasmosis, rubella, cytomegalovirus, and herpes. Determine the concentration of antibodies to the listed pathogens. If there are antibodies, this does not mean that the person is necessarily sick. This may mean that he once had this infection and is immune to it. However, if the number of antibodies


Abstract :

Amoebiasis is a disease caused by Entamoeba histolytica parasite, which considered one of the first three parasites of causing death worldwide. Infection rate became more common in non-endemic regions. Despite the majority of persons infected with this parasite, but they keep asymptomatic, some patients show amoebic colitis. This review outlines the current knowledge related to Entamoeba histolytica.

Perception and acceptance of Problem Based Learning as a Teaching-Learning method among Undergraduate Medical students and Faculty.

Abstract : Problem based learning (PBL) is a teaching learning methodology that promotes self-directed learning, critical thinking, sharing information and working in a team. PBL was introduced to second year MBBS students to study the perception and acceptance among students and facilitators as a teaching learning method. This is an observational study conducted in Ramaiah Medical College, Bangalore in South India. The study was conducted over 3 months. PBL sessions were conducted for second year Medical


Abstract : Anthropometry and physical fitness characteristics provide relevant information about ones health condition. A reduced risk of chronic diseases has been associated with high fitness level often measured by cardio – respiratory fitness parameters leaving out the other measures of physical fitness. Our study therefore investigated the relationship between anthropometric indices and other selected health-related components of fitness. A cross-sectional survey design was used to recruite 400 under
