Comparison of serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase and serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase levels between induction and consolidation phase chemotherapy in children with standard risk of acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Abstract : Acute leukemia is a hematopoietic progenitor cell disorder characterized by the presence of 20% or more blast cells. Liver toxicity occurs by infiltration of leukemic cells and by administration of chemotherapeutic agents which is described by an increase in SGOT and SGPT levels. To determine the effect before and after the induction and consolidation phase on increasing levels of SGOT and SGPT in children with a standard risk of ALL. Analytical analyses with prospective longitudinal study in AL

Estradiol serum level in women with Breast Cancer and Benign Tumor

Abstract : Epidemiological studies indicated that estrogens are one of breast cancer risk factors and most established risk factors for breast cancer in humans probably act through hormone-related pathways. This study included 50 breast cancer women, 25 women with benign tumor and 25 healthy controls. Sera of patients and controls were assessed for the level of estradiol using estradiol ELISA kit. The estradiol level was significantly decreased in postmenopausal women than premenopausal women for all study


CORRELATION OF TIP POSITION OF THE RIGHT SUBCLAVIAN TEMPORARY DOUBLE LUMEN CATHETER WITH THE EVENT OF HEMODIALYSIS ACCESS RECIRCULATION IN STAGE V CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE PATIENTS

Abstract : Recirculation is the phenomenon of the return of dialysis blood to the systemic circulation which is not in full equilibrium, the concentration of solutes in the blood in the arterial route is lower than in the systemic circulation. This indicates that the dialyzed blood is mixed with blood that has not been dialyzed. Determining the optimal position of the double lumen catheter (DLC) tip is complex and controversial. Blood flow in the Right Atrium (RA) is more static than in the Superior Vena C
