Effectiveness of locally applied clindamycin on the occurrence of alveolar osteitis following surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars. A comparative study

Abstract : One of the most frequent procedures in oral surgery units is the removal of a partially or completely impacted mandibular third molar under local anesthesia and it directly affects the patient's quality of life. The aim of this study is to make a comparison between the effect of the locally applied clindamycin and the systemic clindamycin on occurrence of postoperative alveolar osteitis following surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars. Fifty patients who had undergone the surgical


Association between BsmI (rs1544410) and TaqI (rs731236) VDR Gene Polymorphisms with Vitamin D Status in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients

Abstract : Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) arises due to combination of modifiable and non-modifiable. One of the modifiable risk factors is vitamin D concentration, which is associated with the incidence of T2DM and mediated by the vitamin D receptor (VDR). The aim of this study is to see the association between BsmI (rs1544410) and TaqI (rs731236) VDR gene polymorphisms with vitamin D status in T2DM patients in the city of Medan, Indonesia. 76 T2DM patients were enrolled in this study. The vitamin D leve


Bitter Gourd (Momordica charantia L.) Affects the Pharmacokinetics Profile of Metformin in Rabbits’ Plasma

Abstract : The drug-herb combination between metformin and bitter gourd needs further study of the benefits and risks. This study aims to explore metformin in plasma samples using the HPLC method and its pharmacokinetic profiles affected by the bitter gourd. This experimental method study with a post-test randomized controlled group design. Healthy albino rabbits were divided into three groups (n=3). They were administered with bitter gourd juice 100% (4 ml/kg BW) and metformin (BM1), bitter gourd juice 50


The Effectiveness of Education on Farmer Knowledge and Behaviors towards COVID-19 Prevention: A Study in an Agricultural Area

Abstract : Following the healthcare and sanitation protocol has been widely used to prevent COVID-19 transmission. The research objective was to determine the effectiveness of WASH educational collaboration on farmers as an attempt to COVID-19 prevention. This study was an observational pre-experimental pretest-posttest design study without a control group. This research was carried out in March 2021, located in two districts with high COVID-19 positive cases, Johan Pahlawan and Meureubo Districts, West Ac


PERFORMANCE OF MULTIPLEX REAL TIME PCR FOR DIAGNOSIS MALARIA IN FOREST ENDEMIC AREAS IN TANAH BUMBU REGENCY SOUTH KALIMANTAN PROVINCE INDONESIA

Abstract : Malaria incidence has declined in Indonesia for years, but it is still found a foci malaria in forest areas. Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) has been used as a diagnostic tool in remote forest areas because other tests are difficult to carry out due to poor infrastructure. Microscopic examination requires expert personnel to determine the right interpretation. The disadvantage of both methods of diagnosis is that they cannot detect the low density of parasites, causing the diagnosis to be missed. Fo


Molecular Co- Localization of Human Papilloma Virus 6 / 11 in Combined Resected Tissues from Non-oncologic Palatine and Pharyngeal Tonsillar Hypertrophies

Abstract : More than 450 distinct types of human papilloma virus recognized via recent molecular techniques. The low and high oncogenic risk-HPV genotypes have an association with a variety of benign and malignant tumors in the oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal localizations. This study aimed to determine the rate of DNA detection of HPV genotype 6/11 in non-oncologic nasopharyngeal and palatine tonsillar tissues from pediatric patients subjected to adeno-tonsillectomies. A total number of 64 tissue specime


Effect ofPhytosterols Fraction of Iraqi CicerarietinumIn Experimentally Induced Hyperlipidemic Mice

Abstract : The aim of this study is to evaluate the antihyperlipidemic effect of Phytosterolsfraction of Iraqi Cicerareitinum in high-fat diet (HFD)-fed mice. Animals were divided into (4) groups, for each group (n =8). The total duration of the study was (56) days split into two intervals. During the first 28-days interval, mice were administered with HFD, whereas during the second 28-days interval, they were co-administered HFD plusPhytosterols (500mg/kg: p.o.) or the standard drug Atorvastatin(10mg/kg:


Study the relation between IL-17 rs2275913 gene polymorphism with H. pylori infection in Babylon province

Abstract : The current investigation aims to establish a connection between IL17 gene polymorphisms and H. pylori infection. Seventy-eight (78) cases were gathered with H. pylori infection-related clinical symptoms. Urea breath testing and rapid Ab immunoassay, two assays, identified 45 patients with H. pylori infection. As a control group, samples from 45 people were collected who appeared to be in good health. It has been determined that the gold standard method for non-invasive diagnosis is the urea bre


Effect of Zirconium oxide nanoparticles (ZrO2NPs) on liver function in mice infected with Leishmania donovani

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


Prevalence of Needlestick Injury among Health Care Workers in Baghdad Hospitals

Abstract : Needlestick injuries still pose a high risk to healthcare workers and a global concern for transmission of 20 blood-borne pathogens such as human immunodeficiency virus and hepatitis B and C viruses. The Centers for Disease Control of the USA estimated that exposure to blood and body fluids with sharp tools and needle stick and sharps injury affects three million health workers annually with an estimated six million national security indicators each year. This study is aimed to estimate the asso
