THYROID GLAND INCIDENTALOMAS FINDINGS IN A SAMPLE OF IRAQI NECROPSIES

Abstract : Glandula thyreoidea (Thyroid gland), incidentalomas in the community are common, mostly in females and old peoples. In most instances the finding of nodularity is accidental and insignificant because only part of them is of abnormal outgrowth. In spite of negligible chance of abnormality, it is important to isolate and discriminate this probability. The purpose of this study is to discover the presence of nodularity in a randomized sample of causalities referred to the Medico-Legal Directorate a


ANTIOXIDANT POTENTIAL AND TOTAL PHENOLIC OF ETHANOL EXTRACT BELIGO (Benincasa hispida (Thunb.) Cogn.) SEEDS

Abstract : The use of plants as a source of natural antioxidants has been widely studied. One of the plants that have the potential as natural antioxidants is beligo (Benincasa hispida (Thunb.) Cogn.). The part of the beligo fruit that is commonly used is the seeds. Empirically beligo has been widely used by Indonesian people as a medicinal plant. Indonesian people use beligo as a fever reducer, pain and typhoid treatment, presumably based on its phenolic content. Phenolics have a role in antioxidant activ


Macrophage Phagocytic Activity and Capacity in Male White Rats Demonstrates the Immunomodulatory Activity of 70% Ethanol Extract of Arabic Jujube Leaves (Ziziphus Spina-Christi L.)

Abstract : Arabic jujube leaves (Ziziphus spina-christi L.) contain various bioactive compounds and dichloromethane extract from the roots exhibits immunomodulatory activity. This study aims to determine the activity of a 70% ethanol extract of Arabic jujube leaves as an immunomodulator in male white rats based on macrophage phagocytic activity and capacity. Arabic jujube leaves were macerated for 24 hours. Rats were divided into 6 treatment groups. Each group consisted of 4 rats. Group I was administered


FACTOR CONTRIBUTING TO INCIDENCE OF PLANTAR FASCIOPATHY BY ASSESSING PLANTAR FASCIA THICKNESS ULTRASOUND MEASUREMENT

Abstract : Plantar fasciopathy has become one of the most common underdiagnosed and undertreated heel pain. Many studies have been done to investigate predisposing factors for this disorder, but some of them contradicting. This may be attributed to the employment of physical examination as the sole diagnostic method, which is prone to bias. To investigate predisposing factor of plantar fasciopathy using ultrasound measurement. Cross-sectional study was conducted on patients with complaints of heel pain. Th


Characteristic of Self-Harm Behaviour among Psychiatric Patients Visiting Outpatients Prof. HB Saanin Mental Hospital in Padang, Indonesia

Abstract : Self-harm is a person's behavior who intentionally injures his body in various ways without any suicidal intent. Self-harm behavior can include slicing the skin with a razor or other sharp object, burning the body, hitting oneself, picking at scars, pulling hair, and consuming toxic substances. People with self-harm behavior are at high risk of committing suicide. Self-harm behavior is an attempt to escape from emotional pain. The purpose of the study was to determine characteristic of self-harm


Enzybiotics Activity of Phage Endolysin for Treatment of Multi-Drugs Resistant Escherichia coli UTI: in vitro and in vivo study

Abstract : Resistant infection with multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli (E. coli) is one of the most common causative agents of bacterial infections and emergence as a multidrug resistant bacterium is a major public health threat worldwide and representing a real problem for health care providers. The use of Bacteriophage lytic enzymes (lysins) are highly evolved molecules that have been specifically developed by phages to quickly and efficiently allow their progeny to be released from the host bacterium


Literature Review: Telemedicine in Chronic Kidney Disease Patients

Abstract : Telemedicine is a necessity in health services for CKD patients amid technological advances so that health services can reach a wider community and remote places. There are several forms of telemedicine services in CKD patients with inhibiting factors, supporting factors and keys to success in their implementation. The purpose of this study is to determine the form of telemedicine services in CKD patients, find out the factors that are obstacles, supporters and keys to the success of a telemedic


Comparison study of Circulating Adiponectin level in rheumatoid arthritis patients between Etanercept and Rituximab and their correlation with disease activity

Abstract : Adiponectin considered the most abundant adipokine in the body, is a prime example. The development of RA causes the irreversible joint deformity, disability, and a decrease in quality of life. The study aimed to investigate the role of Adiponectin in rheumatoid arthritis patients under biological treatment (ETN, and RTX) and their correlation with Disease activity. During December 2021 and May 2022, case-control research was conducted. The current study included 100 RA patients from Iraq who ha


A Simple demonstration to comprehend the application of Laplace law in human physiology

Abstract : The Laplace law relates the wall tension with the radius of curvature and the pressure in hallow structures. It is expressed as tension T is directly proportional to the product of the radius of the curvature r, and the pressure p, in the hallow structure. The expression is quite straight forward and easy to understand. The difficulty arises when the law is applied to understand the physiological process, as many a times students tend to understand that tension and pressure changes unidirectiona


Significant reduction of serum coenzyme Q10 in pediatric nephrotic patient with steroid resistance in comparison with steroid sensitive and control groups

Abstract : Steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome is a causative agent of end-stage kidney disease in children and young people. A genetic factor is responsible for around 30% of children with steroid resistance. In the first decades of the new century, research has revealed a role for CoQ in the regulation of gene expression, mitochondrial activity, and cell signaling. Primary CoQ10 insufficiency may be susceptible to treatment with CoQ10 supplements by omitting the biosynthetic deficiencies. The objective
