Diagnosis of Peripheral Artery Disease by Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated lipocalin (NGAL), Ankle Brachial Index and Lipid Profile

Abstract : Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a progressive disorder characterized by stenosis and/or occlusion of large and medium-sized arteries. Systemic atherosclerosis remains the number one cause of morbidity and mortality in the western world and is the major cause of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), causing obstructions in blood flow in one or more of the major limb arteries. A case-control study was performed on 30 Intermittent and 30 Critical patients and 60 healthy controls during the period


Insulin Resistance and Residual ß-Cell Function Among Persons with Impaired Fasting Glycaemia

Abstract : Impaired fasting glycaemia (IFG) is a condition, in which a person's fasting blood glucose levels are consistently higher than the normal range, but below the diagnostic cut-off for diabetes mellitus (DM). ß-cell dysfunction and insulin resistance (IR) have a principal role in the pathogenesis of IFG. Patients with IFG are at high risk of progression to diabetes, and developing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), The present study was designed, to determine the degree of IR (HOMA-IR


Age, Gender, and ABO Blood Group Relation to Immunological Parameters in Children Infected with E. histolytica

Abstract : Amoebiasis is an enteric protozoan disease of the human gastrointestinal tract caused by E. histolytica, which is a public health problem in many developing countries. Especially in poor sanitation areas. The study aimed to estimate some immunological parameters in symptomatic amoebic children. The study was conducted in the Pediatric Teaching Hospital in Sulaymaniyah province during September - December 2021. The serum was taken from 80 amoebic infected children (patient group) and 80 parasite-


Adherence to Antidiabetic Medication and its Related Factors in Type Two Diabetes Mellitus Patients, Sulaimaniyah City, Iraq

Abstract : Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) implies the highest incidence of diabetic cases. T2DM is related to metabolic ailments in the pancreas, kidneys, liver, and intestines. To determine the impact of adherence to antidiabetic medication (ADMs) on glycemic control in T2DM patients. This cross-sectional study enrolled 245 participants (119 intervention patients and 126 non-intervention patients) with T2DM in Diabetes and Endocrine Center, Sulaimaniyah, Iraq, from January to August 2021 through direct i


Illness Beliefs and Its Relationship with Diabetes Self-Care Practice in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Indonesia

Abstract : Diabetic patients in Indonesia have poor self-care practices. Illness belief might affect diabetes self-care practice in Indonesia. However, up to date, the illness belief of Indonesian diabetic patients toward self-care is still unclear, and whether illness belief and its domains are the predictors of diabetes self-care practice in Indonesia is still unknown. Therefore, this study aimed to assess the illness belief and to assess whether illness belief and its domains are the predictors of diabe


Effect of ZrO2 nanoparticles on liver tissue of infected mice of visceral leishmaniasis

Abstract : Visceral leishmaniasis consider a great health problem in Iraq, the traditional antileishmanial therapies are toxic and most are costly. For this reason, new approaches in the treatment of leishmaniasis are requested, zirconia nanoparticles ZrO2NPs, is a nano-sized and hollow colloidal metal oxide, it was recorded as anticancer agent, the approach was to prepare 17.4 μg/ml of ZrO2NPs by pulsed laser ablation. These nanoparticles are described to confirm the shape, size and other physical proper


SOME IMMUNE ASPECTS IN PATIENTS WITH CUTANEOUS LEISHMANIASIS IN AL-KIFIL DISTRICT/BABYLON PROVINCE

Abstract : The study was performed to evaluate the Epidemiological status of cutaneous leishmaniasis in the Al-Kifil district /Babylon province during the period 1/9/2017 to 1/3/2018, 106 cases visited the Al-kifil general hospital and some private clinics in this district were studied. The infestation was diagnosed by dermatologist physician, The study was performed to evaluate the Epidemiological status of cutaneous leishmaniasis and evaluation some hematological parameter changes of infected persons wit
