The Relationship between Serum Ferritin and Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 in Pediatric Beta Thalassemia Major Patients

Abstract : Serum ferritin level is a routine check to monitor iron overload in thalassemia patients. Iron overload due to transfusion can lead organ damage, such as causing vascular damage which is at risk of reminding the incidence of thrombosis. Patients with thalassemia frequently have increased plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) levels from the side effects of blood transfusion, such as vascular complications like inflammation, vasculitis, and thrombosis. There may be a relationship between seru


MRI evaluation of trigeminal neuralgia patients in a rural hospital of central India - Study Protocol

Abstract : Trigeminal neuralgia is a disease condition characterized by repetitive paroxysmal electric shock like pain in the distribution of trigeminal nerve. Most common cause implicated in this condition is neurovascular conflict, mostly by superior cerebellar artery in prepontine cistern. Other common causes include cerebello-pontine angle tumours and aneurysms at level of brainstem. MRI is the imaging modality of choice in evaluation of trigeminal neuralgia with 3D-FIESTA (Fast imaging employing stead


CASE REPORT: PULMONARY SEQUESTRATION IN FETUS

Abstract : Pulmonary sequestration is a congenital malformation of lung wherein there is aberrant lung tissue which is non-functional and has no communication with bronchial tree and has supply from systemic arterial circulation. We present a case report of pulmonary sequestration in 28-year-old ANC patient on 17 weeks and 22 weeks of gestation.


D-dimer levels predict mortality in Southeast Asian COVID-19 patients treated in ICU: a prospective, observational study

Abstract : Several publications have described the laboratory characteristics of COVID-19. Notably, the increase in D-dimer levels was more pronounced in individuals who were seriously ill. The goal of this study was to observe and discover if either D-dimer, CRP, fibrinogen, and IL-6 acted as a mortality predictor in Southeast Asian population, COVID-19 patients treated in the ICU. This was a prospective, observational study. All Southeast Asian ethnic, ≥18 years old patients diagnosed with COVID-19 who


Detection of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) using modified conventional cefoxitin-based media as an alternative screening

Abstract : Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) can cause infection with higher morbidity and mortality. In the limited-resource setting, the availability of rapid detection is doubtful; therefore, prompt detection using the alternative method is indispensable. To compare the detection rate of the modified-conventional method and chromogenic media against mucocutaneous clinical swab, during 12-month periods of study. A total of 80 S. aureus isolates from previous study were cultivated and re-


Validation of an Instrument for Evaluating Self-Esteem, Self-Efficacy, and Parent-Adolescent Communication among Risky Sexually Active Adolescents in Selangor, Malaysia

Abstract : The overall goal of this study is to investigate the validity and reliability of factors that contribute to adolescents' sexual risk-taking behaviour. Given the significant contribution of sexual risk-taking behaviour research targeting adolescence in Malaysia and the lack of clear conclusions regarding the impact, this study focuses on assisting and guiding parents at home, teachers in school, and government policymakers in developing competitive strategies in the current challenging years ahea


Study of changes in sex hormones before and after menopause in rheumatoid Arthritis patients

Abstract : Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic, autoimmune condition affecting connective tissues that is characterized by joint degeneration and inflammation, negatively affecting quality of life significantly. Joint synovitis causes severe disability by gradually destroying bones and cartilage. Rheumatoid arthritis has been identified as 42nd most significant cause of worldwide impairment and, if left untreated, even a permanent loss of function. It should be seen as a condition with symptom


Study of changes in sex hormones before and after menopause in systemic lupus erythematosus patients

Abstract : The most common form of lupus is known as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Organs are severely damaged and inflamed due to the immune system's mistaken targeting of healthy tissue in SLE, an autoimmune illness. The cardiovascular system, the brain, the lungs, the skin and the articular cartilage may all be affected. Although there is now no treatment that can reverse the effects of lupus, it may be managed with dietary and pharmaceutical interventions. People with SLE may have many different


The Spread of COVID-19 in Africa and Its Comparison With The Global Spread: An Examination After Thirty-Three Months

Abstract : Understanding of COVID-19 is still evolving, and COVID-19 statistics are dynamic. The purpose of this study was to use COVID-19 data to examine the spread of COVID-19 in the continent of Africa by the end of September 2022 and compare it to the global spread. Online data on COVID-19 statistics were extracted from the "Worldometer" website. As of October 1, 2022, Africa has recorded 12,647,710 confirmed cases of COVID-19 (2% of all cases worldwide) and 257,630 deaths (3.9%). Of the 6.7 billion te


Perception of Healthcare Professionals Toward Use of Mouthwash as Oral Rinse in COVID-19 patients- The Cross-sectional study

Abstract : COVID-19 is caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease is spread primarily through respiratory droplets and direct contact. Antiviral mouthwashes are mouthwashes that can lower viral loads and as a result, decrease illness severity. To analyse healthcare professional attitudes towards the usage of mouthwashes in COVID-19 patients. Materials and Methods: This questionnaire-based cross-sectional study was conducted for a period of 3 months (6th April to 5th
