Study of the Additive Effect of Cranberry with Amoxicillin on Resistant Renal Passages Infection Owing To E. Coli

Abstract : Repeated renal passages infection unresponsive to traditional therapy became a serious medical problem, especially when E. coli microorganism is blamed. Amoxicillin is a cell wall biosynthesis retarder used as the first safest choice for treating E. coli-induced renal infection. Unfortunately, its use became limited due to the emergence of resistance. Cranberry is a natural product substance used widely in medicine, especially as a renal disinfectant agent. To demonstrate whether cranberry exhib


The association between pulmonary tuberculosis and bronchial anthracosis

Abstract : Anthracosis is pneumoconiosis induced by frequent contact with smoke from biomass, air pollution, charcoal smoke, or dust particles. This study aimed to investigate the association between anthracosis and pulmonary tuberculosis. In this cross-sectional study, 401 patients undergoing bronchoscopy were recruited, and their demographic characteristics, clinical features, bronchoscopy and imaging results, pathologic-cytologic reports, and acid-fast bacilli (AFB) smear were recorded and analyzed. Bro


Smartphone-Based Instrument (SBI) An Unswerving Retentive of CPR Skill and Knowledge

Abstract : Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving procedure that should be able to perform by everyone. It is the only critical rescue procedure that can be done during a sudden cardiac arrest event. There are various technology-based training methods designed to ensure the procedures are well grasped by the public, such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and smartphone-based training. Those efficacies of technology-based CPR training and content remain divisive, leading to CPR


Estimation levels of Interleukin-35 (IL-35) and some cardiac enzymes in the sera of Iraqi patients who have acute coronary syndrome with COVID-19 infection

Abstract : Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a comprehensive disease known as acute myocardial ischemia resulting from coronary artery plaque disruption followed by thrombosis-induced severe coronary artery stenosis and occlusions, resulting in unstable anginas (UAs), acute myocardial infarctions (AMIs) or sudden cardiac deaths. The instant study was designed to detect the level of serum markers in acute coronary syndrome with COVID-19 infection patients in Baghdad city. In the current cross-sectional study


Impact of FDG-PET/CT for the detection of unknown primary tumours in patients with osseous metastasis

Abstract : Our aim in this study was to evaluate the efficiency of combined positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT), in the detection of the primary tumor origin in patients with metastatic osseous lesions of cancer of unknown primary origin (CUP). PET/CT was performed for 50 patients with CUP. These patients presented with metastatic osseous lesions that were pathologically proven, radiologically, and/or clinically suspected osseous metastatic lesions with no detected primary site.


A study into the Role of AcrA-AcrB-TolC Efflux Pump in multidrug resistance of Community Acquired Uropathogenic Escherichia coli in Baghdad
