Isolation, Identification, Screening, and Optimization of Endophytic Mold Fusarium sp in Red Dahlia (Dahlia sp.L) Tubers as Inulinase Producer

Abstract : Inulinase is an enzyme that converts inulin to fructose. This enzyme can be isolated from the endophytic mold of red dahlia tubers (Dahlia sp.L). The most critical steps to producing large-scale inulinase enzymes are to separate endophytic molds, then identify the type of mold and assess the best activity of the inulinase enzyme based on temperature and PH. The method is to isolate endophytic molds, make crude enzymes with Potato Dextrose Broth (PDB) media and fermentation culture, test the opti


Cord Blood Albumin Correlation As a Predictor Of Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia In Healthy Neonates

Abstract : Neonatal jaundice is a common clinical problem during the neonatal period, especially in the first week of life. Healthy infants can develop idiopathic neonatal jaundice with prevalence of 60% - 80%. The liver is the site of albumin synthesis which binds unconjugated bilirubin from the breakdown of erythrocytes and helps in transport to the liver. Low albumin production will reduce the transport and binding capacity. To determine the relationship between umbilical cord blood albumin levels and t


Impact of COVID-19 Infection on Malignant Patients and Suspect Malignancy care in Dr. Kariadi General Hospital

Abstract : The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted changes in hospital health services at Dr Kariadi in patients with malignancy and suspected malignancy both in the diagnostic process, surgery and in routine procedures such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and palliative. This change was influenced by government policies such as lockdowns, patient fear of transmission of COVID-19, and limitations on facilities, infrastructure, and medical personnel. The duration of the delay in health services impacts patient out


SELF-EFFICACY, BENEFIT, CUES TO ACTION AS THE MAIN DETERMINANTS OF COVID-19 PREVENTION BEHAVIOR: META ANALYSIS OF CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDY

Abstract : The fact that Covid-19 virus will not vanish completely requires people to have healthy behavior to control and prevent the spread (Covid-19 Preventive Behavior CPB). This is a systematic review and meta-analysis study that aims at providing a more reliable summary with a high level of evidence to estimate the scale of the effect of each component or perception of the HBM theory on Covid-19 prevention behavior. Articles were searched through databases from January – November 2022. The sources


Sperm DNA Fragmentation and Chromatin Maturation in Oligo, Astheno, Terato, and Oligo-astheno-teratozoospermia Infertile Men

Abstract : Male factor in infertility is often due to sperm abnormalities, such as an inadequate number (oligozoospermia), disturbed motility (asthenozoospermia), defective morphology (teratozoospermia), or oligoastenoteratozoospermia (OAT), and also in conditions of normozoospermia. Furthermore, it is necessary to determine predictors that can explain other abnormalities, such as sperm DNA fragmentation (DFI) and chromatin maturation (CM). Therefore, this study aims to compare the DFI and CM between oligo


The Relationship of Vitamin D Levels and Nutritional Status with Age at Menarche of Girls at Darul Ihsan Islamic Boarding School Indonesia

Abstract : Menarche or the first menstruation is the final stage of puberty in female children. The age at menarche is lowering globally. Individuals with earlier menarche are more likely to get cancer due to hormonal abnormalities. It is important to understand the risk factors of early menarche. Factors, such as nutritional status and vitamin D, may affect the onset of menarche. This research was an analytical cross-sectional study conducted to assess the relationship of nutritional status and vitamin D


The Assessment of Chemical Hazards Among Industry Workers in Iraqi Kurdistan Region: A Cross-Sectional Study

Abstract : A chemical hazard is an occupational risk brought on by exposure to chemicals at work. Long-term or short-term health effects could result from chemical exposure at work. The study attempts to assess exposed workers to chemical hazards in the workplace. A worker-based cross-sectional study was conducted among ten large-scale factories. The factories have over 900-line workers. 300 of them were selected by using Epi Info™ software. The right number of employees per factory was determined using


Effects of Pesticide Use on the Incidence of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2: Meta-Analysis of Cross-Sectional Studies

Abstract : The use of synthetic chemical pesticides to maximize agricultural yields is very susceptible to negative effects on health. Exposure to DDT, BHC, HCB, organochlorine and mirex compounds from pesticides has been reported to trigger diabetes mellitus. However, mixed results make estimates of pesticide effects not always consistent. The purpose of this study is to find out more reliable analysis and estimation. Based on this background, researchers are interested in conducting a meta-analysis. The


Accuracy of using mid-upper arm circumference to detect severe malnutrition among children under five years at H. Adam Malik General Hospital

Abstract : Severe malnutrition in children under 5 years is a global health problem due to higher morbidity and mortality. Mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) and weight-for-height z-score (WHZ) were assessed to detect severe malnutrition. We compared WHZ and MUAC cut off to identify waste among children under 5 years, and WHZ was the gold standard. A cross-sectional study was conducted on pediatric inpatients and outpatients. A total of 99 children ages 6-59 months were recruited. A trained doctor performe


Performance of Medical Laboratory Science Students in Online vs. Face-to-Face During COVID-19 at Alfajr College, Sudan 2020: A Comparative Analysis.

Abstract : Worldwide, academic institutions adopted online education as a learning strategy for curriculum delivery after the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown due to safety measures. Due to several challenges, the experience of online methods in low-income countries Sudan as an example needs adjustment and evaluation. This article aimed to evaluate the experience of the online learning method during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) among medical laboratory science students at Alfajr College for Science and Tec
