New directions in the treatment of endometriosis

Abstract : Endometriosis is an inflammatory disease characterized by the proliferation of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. According to the preliminary data, this pathology affects approximately 10% of women of reproductive age. Surgical interventions currently used for endometriosis are associated with moderate efficacy and operational risks, and therefore the implementation of patients' reproductive plans should be approached optimally. Hence, the long-term use of medications before and aft

Analysis of Pepsin, Tripsyn, and Bile Acid in Saliva of Patients with Laryngopharyngeal Reflux and Non- Laryngopharyngeal Reflux

Abstract : Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) is the backflow of gastric and or duodenal fluid into the larynx, pharynx, trachea, and bronchi. The prevalence of LPR is difficult to determine due to the limited gold standard and the large variety of LPR symptoms. Damage can occur due to the decrease in pH value and also because of exposure to harmful enzymes in reflux, including pepsin, bile acid, and trypsin. This study is an analytic observational study with a case-control design. The study was conducted in t

The Cause of SARI in Related to COVID and Influenza: A Comparative study

Abstract : The current study aims to determine the main cause of severe respiratory infections (SARI) for Iraqi patients hospitalized in Baghdad hospitals. A total of (249) people who had diagnosis case of severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) and a high temperature. Nasophrangial swab samples were collected from each participant by specific swabs from Sigma Virocult Company in the UK with viral transport medium according to Bradford and Slavin (1940), and stored frozen at -70°C until used for RNA ext

Effectiveness of Grape Seed Extract on Color Stability of Home VS in Office Bleached Teeth Exposed to Staining Solution

Abstract : To determine whether or not a naturally occurring antioxidant, known as GSE, can prevent the bleached enamel surface from being discolored when exposed to a staining solution (tea). And also to compare the color change improvement potential of 10% GSE on home (35% carbamide peroxide) and in-office (40% hydrogen peroxide) bleach after staining. A total of 64 freshly extracted intact human premolars were collected for the experimental groups. The sample were divided into two mains groups in office

A Pilot Study of the Efficacy of a Transdiagnostic Single-Session Circus-Based Mindfulness Programme in Rural North Borneo

Abstract : Child and adolescent mental health is a pertinent issue that would benefit from creative and gamified new approaches. Circus skills and mindfulness methods are transdiagnostic interventions that have additive effects in synergy. This article focuses on the pilot testing and preliminary efficacy analysis of a novel circus-based mindfulness intervention. 50 participants were randomized into intervention and control groups. Intervention groups received a combined circus and mindfulness intervention

HUMS Ohidas Toolkit, the PHC, and HUMS Tanya Pakar: A multi-level, vertically integrated digital health Promotion, Primary Prevention and telemedicine provision programme

Abstract : Digital health has become an increasingly salient point in today’s ever-changing healthcare landscape. At the same time, the Internet is democratising information related to healthcare, as a quick search about simple healthcare conditions will yield hundreds of thousands of healthcare-related search results. UMS University Hospital (HUMS) was established and is poised to become the first Smart Hospital in the State of Sabah. As part of the overall branding and implementation of HUMS as a smart


Abstract : Sepsis is a life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection. Andrographis paniculata (AGP) was anti-inflammatory by inhibiting nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB), a family of transcription factors that plays a central role in the inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) expression. To prove the effect of AGP on NF-κB p65 and iNOS expression in lipopolysaccharide-induced liver injury in a rat model of sepsis. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) was performed on 30 liver

Compound Heterozygosity of HB Adana and HB Constant Spring: A Case Report

Abstract : Alpha thalassemia is a genetic disorder of hemoglobin synthesis deletion or non-deletion mutation of the alpha-globin gene. Non-deletional mutations cause abnormalities in the structure of alpha-globin chain, creating an unstable variant of hemoglobin. Furthermore, hemoglobin Adana (HbAdana) and Constant Spring (HbCS) are common non-deletional alpha-thalassemia in Indonesia. However, compound heterozygosity cases of these types of mutations have rarely been reported. A 12-year-old boy is hospita

A comparative study of the effectiveness of Pfizer-BioNTech (BNT162b2), AstraZeneca (ChAdOx1nCoV-19) and Sinopharm (BBIBP-CorV) vaccines in eliciting Cell mediated immunity in a sample of vaccinated population from Iraq.

Abstract : In order to tackle COVID-19 pandemic and the emerging variants, researchers around the globe have investigated many vaccine candidates from different manufacturers, however vaccine development is not an easy task but is a top priority to restore normalcy as represented a step to achieve the desired herd immunity threshold. In this study we assessed and compared the level the peripheral mononuclear cells proliferation (PBMC) activity and in vitro INF-gamma release by the S1 spike protein stimulat
