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

Abstract : Enterococcus faecalis bacteria are often found in cases of root canal treatment failure. Information on the antibacterial potential of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni herbs against E.faecalis, is still very limited. To determine the antibacterial potential of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni leaf extract against Enterococcus faecalis. In vitro laboratory experimental research with post test only design with control group. Stevia leaf extraction using maceration method. The antibacterial activity of Stevia le


Use GRA6 gene for genotyping of Toxoplasma gondii from aborted women in Al-Diwaniyah Governorate

Abstract : The aim of the current study is to investigate the infection with Toxoplasma parasite for aborted women in Al-Diwaniyah city and to investigate the genetic diversity of the parasite and the percentages of the genetic type. The results were shown after collecting and examining 100 placenta samples, were collected from aborted women at an early stage of pregnancy, and upon initial diagnosis by the Impression method, the results showed 40 and the infection rate is 40% positive samples and 60 negati
