The association between the results of the examination of erythrocyte sedimentation rate and helicobacter pylory gastritis in children

Abstract : Helicobacter pylori infection has various clinical manifestations including peptic ulcer. However, over 80% of H. pylori colonization in the stomach is asymptomatic. The increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate is one of the markers of infection and can be an indicator of H.pylori infection in children. To investigate the association between erythrocyte sedimentation rate and H.pylori gastritis in children. This study is an analytic observational cross-sectional design in pediatric patients who

Estimate of Maca powder feeding on hematological parameters and hormones in broiler chicken

Abstract : The current study aimed to demonstrate the effect of maca powder feeding on hematological parameters and hormones balance in broiler chicken. 80 Ross chicks were utilized in present experiment and distributed into 4 groups (control, 5%, 10% and 15%). The experiment results demonstrated red blood cells (RBC) counts, hemoglobin (Hb) concentration and package cell volume (PCV) in treated groups (5%, 10% and 15%) exhibited significant (P<0.05) increased compared with control group. While, white bloo


Abstract : The health of pregnant women is an important problem to be considered because it impacts the health status of all the people of an area. The importance of this issue is reflected in the United Nations' efforts to address pregnant women’s health: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Develop an effort model for pregnant women's health through Qanun on the prevention and control of Chronic Energy Deficiency (CED) in pregnant women at the village level to reduce cases of CED and become a refe

Comparison of dermoscopic features of melasma between treated and untreated patients

Abstract : Melasma is an acquired chronic pigmentary disorder occurring on sun-exposed areas. Was to differentiate dermoscopic features of melasma between treated and untreated and if there are any features to confirm ongoing ochronosis. This is descriptive cross-sectional study conducted in the Department of Dermatology in Al-Kindy teaching hospital from June 2021 to April 2022. Females of any age with melasma were included in study and then divided into those who were treated previously with topical ster

Detection study of Some Virulence factors of Respiratory pathogens isolated from Electrical Generators Workers

Abstract : The respiratory tract has sites which are potentially inaccessible to microbes. But, microbes when enter, they caused Respiratory Tract Infections, which in turn become more resistant for treatment due to improper use of antibiotics, in addition they prescribed by unspecialized persons. This led to create microbes which are different from the original microbes by gaining new strategies for infection and persistence, antibiotic resistance, different virulence factors, various phenotypes and adapt

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
