A Clinical Evaluation of Kim et al. Prediction Scale of Impacted Lower Third Molar Extraction Difficulty

Abstract : Determining the difficulty of impacted lower third molar (L3M) is a continuous challenge for oral surgeons. Kim et al., a modification of Pederson scale is one of the indices proposed to estimate the difficulty of (L3M) based on radiographic findings. Preoperative panoramic view were obtained for fifty patients who need (L3M) being extracted the difficulty was predicted according to Kim et al. A clinical evaluation of difficulty was considered according Parant scale (PS) and surgical time (ST).


POTENTIAL USE OF FERMENTED DANGKE CHEESE TO IMPROVE GLYCEMIC CONTROL IN RATS FED WITH A HIGH-FAT GLUCOSE DIET AND PROPYLTHIOURACIL

Abstract : Dangke is a local cheese from Enrekang, South Sulawesi, traditionally made with buffalo milk and papaya sap. Dangke is a good source of lactic acid bacteria, which may offer health benefits. This study aimed to investigate the anti-hyperglycemic effects of dangke in rats. In addition, this study also examined the effect of fermentation time on the number of lactic acid bacteria obtained from dangke. Dangke was prepared by boiling buffalo milk and papaya sap until solidified and fermented in a ja


Effects of Pumpkin (Cucurbita moschata) Seed Capsule Provision on Total Cholesterol, LDL, and HDL Levels in Patients with Hypercholesterolemia in Palu City: An Experimental Study

Abstract : Hypercholesterolemia is a condition with increased total and LDL cholesterol concentrations, and pumpkin seed extract can be used as a functional food to reduce this complication. The flavonoids, phytosterols, fiber, and antioxidants in pumpkin seed decrease the total cholesterol and LDL levels while increasing HDL. This study aimed to analyze the effect of pumpkin (Cucurbita moschata) seed capsule compared to simvastatin on total cholesterol, LDL, and HDL levels in hypercholesterolemic patients

MEDROXYPROGESTERONE ACETATE EFFECT ON MMPs AND TIMPs EXPRESSION AS CORNEAL ALKALI BURN THERAPY

Abstract : Ocular chemical burn is one of emergencies in ophthalmology. Chemical burn caused by alkali can cause more damage because it can penetrate the ocular surface very quickly, causing a saponification reaction due to fatty acids in the cell membrane, thereby damaging the corneal and conjunctival epithelial tissues. Medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) is a progesterone derivative which properties and structure are similar to steroids and often used as a contraceptive as a hormone replacement at an affo

CUTANEOUS MANIFESTATIONS WITH CD4 +T CELL COUNTS IN HIV SEROPOSITIVE/AIDS PATIENTS - A CROSS SECTIONAL STUDY.

Abstract : AIDS is the current burning problem worldwide. It is caused by the Human immunodeficiency virus. In many patients, mucocutaneous diseases are amongst one of the first recognized clinical manifestations of HIV/ AIDS.

Magnesium level among patients with sickle cell anemia: A meta-analysis

Abstract : Low levels of serum magnesium have been associated with increased polymerization and sickling and consequently vaso-occlusion (VOC) in sickle cell anemia (SCA) patients due to cell dehydration. The K-Cl co-transport plays a very important role in sickle cell dehydration and is inhibited by significantly increasing levels of magnesium. In this meta-analysis, we evaluated total serum magnesium levels in SCD patients and “healthy” controls. We pooled six studies (all from Africa and two were pu
