Analysis of the Needs of the Integrative Thematic Learning Model of Pancasila Values

Abstract : Early childhood education aims to provide stimulation to help the growth and development of children and also understanding of Pancasila values, so it is necessary to develop an integrative thematic learning model of Pancasila values and in accordance through this research, an analysis was carried out using a descriptive quantitative method of model requirements so that the model design can be developed according to the needs of teachers and students. Research data were collected through intervi

Knowledge Assessment of Prostate Cancer Screening Programs in Sulaimaniyah Province, Iraq

Abstract : Prostate cancer (PCA) is one of the leading causes of death among males in the developed world. One strategy to decrease the risk of this cancer would be through a screening program with a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) assay. To assess the impact of a screening program on PCA in the Sulaimaniyah province, Iraq, and its relationship to some sociodemographic data of the participants. This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted on 300 participants through an online validated questionnair

Histological evaluation after using two different bone compositions in terms of staged horizontal Guided Bone Regeneration

Abstract : The purpose of this study was histological evaluation of horizontal ridge augmentation using xenograft with and without autogenous bone. The present split mouth study was conducted on 19 patients with insufficient width of alveolar ridge. The sites were randomly assigned into two groups, xenograft alone + A-PRF+ + Ti-d-PTFE membrane (Xenograft group) (n = 21) and the combined xenograft and autogenous bone (70-30) + Ti-d-PTFE membrane (Mix group) (n = 21). Nine months after the guided bone regene

Diode Laser and Scalpel Surgery in Oral Mucosal Biopsies: A Clinical and Histological Comparative Study

Abstract : Diagnosis of oral mucosal lesions is an essential part of clinical practice. Oral lesions are relatively common, but doctors may find it difficult to differentiate between benign and malignant lesions. Proper patient management begins with establishing the correct diagnosis. Therefore, soft tissue biopsy is a crucial diagnostic tool at the histological level. Surgical excision can be performed either with conventional methods such as a scalpel blade and electrocautery, or with various types of l


Abstract : The skin is the largest organ in the body that provides protection to the body. UV radiation contributes about 80% to skin aging. This study aims to determine whether there is a relationship between the regular use of sunscreen with the severity of facial wrinkles, the amount of sebum, pigmentation and the size of pores. This study was an observational analytical study using a cross-sectional study design. Data processing and analysis will use the SPSS (Statistical Product and Service Solution)

Antibacterial Efficacy of Sodium Hypochlorite and Chitosan Oligosaccharide Irrigants on Enterococcus Faecalis in Endodontic Treatment with Different Instrumentations

Abstract : The main goal of root canal treatment is to clean and disinfect the root canal system through elimination of bacteria and removal of necrotic tissue with mechanical instrumentation and irrigation. The purpose of this study was to determine the antibacterial efficacy of sodium hypochlorite and chitosan oligosaccharide against Enterococcus faecalis (E. faecalis) in endodontic treatment with different instrumentation. Twenty-four single-root mandibular premolars were divided into four groups. Teeth

Molecular Characterization of blaSHV/blaTEM/blaCTX-M Genes in ESBL Producing Multidrug Resistance Klebsiella Pneumoniae Isolated in various Clinical Samples

Abstract : Klebsiella pneumoniae belongs to the Enterobacteriaceae family and is described as a gram-negative, encapsulate, and non-motile bacterium. ESBLs can hydrolyze oxyimino cephalosporins rending third-generation cephalosporins ineffective against treatment. Due to this resistance, carbapenems became a treatment option for ESBL. Enterobacteriaceae acquire ESBL genes by mutation or horizontal transfer of plasmids, which results in oxyimino-cephalosporin resistance. The most common ESBL-encoding genes

Clinical profile of patients referred to Mental Health Unit in Buraidah city, Qassim province, 2020-2023

Abstract : Saudi Arabia has integrated preventive and primary curative services through primary healthcare centers (PHCCs) but lacks adequate mental health services. To address this gap, the Ministry of Health established the Primary Mental Health Care (PMHC) program in 2016, aiming to improve early detection, diagnosis, and management of mental disorders at PHCCs. This study aims to describe the demographic and clinical characteristics of patients referred to the mental health unit in Buraidah city, Qassi

Comparing the clinical performance of high viscosity bulk-fill composite with conventional composite in children aged 5-8 years: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Abstract : This randomized controlled clinical trial is aimed to evaluate the clinical performance of high-viscosity bulk-fill composite in the restoration of second mandibular primary molars compared to conventional incremental composite. The studied sample consisted of 60 second mandibular primary molars in 59 children aged between 5-8 years, these cases were allocated randomly into four groups: Group 1 (experimental, n=20): High Viscosity Bulk Fill Composite with total etching (HVBFC-T), Group 2 (experi

Potention Black Soldier Fly's (Hermetia illucens) Live for Wound Healing and Bone Remodeling: A Systematic Review

Abstract : The Black Soldier Fly (BSF) (Hermetia illucens) is included in the decomposer fly which is not a disease vector. BSF is widely cultivated because it has high nutritional value with a protein content of 44.26% and a fat content of 29.65%. BSF life has the potential as a raw material in the chitosan manufacturing process because it contains the chemical compounds chitin and chitosan. Chitosan is able to accumulate collagen fibers and produce faster wound healing and as an alternative material for
