Interleukin-37 and Interleukin-18 as Prognostic Biomarkers for End-Stage Renal Disease

Abstract : Inflammatory cytokines like IL-18 and anti-inflammatory cytokines like IL-37 are both involved in the etiology of ESRD and comorbidities including hypothyroidism. Despite the fact that Subclinical Hypothyroidism is common in people with chronic kidney disease, little is known regarding the clinical signs and implications of this ailment in patients with end-stage renal disease. The purpose of this study was to assess the role of Interlaken-18 (IL-18) and Interlaken 37 (IL-37) in end-stage renal

Effect of endometrial scratching on embryo implantation outcomes

Abstract : Modern and retrospective scientific literature on the issue of one of the additional interventions in in vitro fertilization was analyzed. There is an increase in infertility around the world, so many patients resort to assisted reproductive technologies. A history of unsuccessful in vitro fertilization occurs in 10-30% of women. The main goal in reproduction at the moment is to increase the likelihood of successful implantation of the embryo after transfer to the uterine cavity. Endometrial scr


Abstract : The objective of this research was to determine the histopathological effects of a local strain of Toxoplasma Gondii isolated from fetuses of aborted ewes on the eyes and brains of rat fetuses. T. Gondii diagnosed in the fetuses of aborted ewes. Inject near 100 tissue sacs of Toxoplasma intraperitoneal into 20 pregnant rats in the first week of gestation. The cyst of T. Gondii and its influence on the rat's fetus eyes and brains were investigated histopathologically using light microscopy on the

Effect of esomeprazole on some liver enzymes in patients with peptic ulcer

Abstract :

Esomeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor (PPIs) successfully used to inhibit gastric acid secretion and treat peptic ulcers and other acid-related disorders. However, the studies of the effect of esomeprazole on liver enzymes are limited. This study aims to investigate the effect of esomeprazole on liver enzymes alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and alkaline phosphates (ALP) in peptic ulcer patients. Twenty-nine omeprazole users and twenty-four health control we


Abstract : Adverse drug reactions are increasingly challenging in medical settings; either due to their high doses or prolonged use or due to the pharmacodynamics nature of the medications. Methotrexate found applications for different ailments making their adverse effects common. It's worth trying to prevent or mitigate these adverse effects of methotrexate using available remedies if any. We aimed to reduce the hepatotoxic effects of methotrexate using L-carnitine compared to N-acetylcysteine as a positi

Vitamin E versus propolis as an add-on therapy to sitagliptin/metformin on uric acid level and renal function in type 2 diabetic patients

Abstract : Nephropathy is one of the serious diabetic comorbid complications. Propolis has been used for the treatment of various illnesses due to its complex composition of various therapeutic constituents including antioxidant compounds which might help regenerate the pancreas or facilitate tissue glucose utilization or improve insulin action. The present study aimed to demonstrate a comparative renoprotective effect provided by vitamin E or propolis in the same diabetic patient sample on standard therap

The Potential Role of Polyol Pathway in the Development and Detection of Diabetic Nephropathy

Abstract : Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is the major type of diabetes around the world with a diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the most common complication of this illness. Several pathways involving pro-inflammatory and polyol are activated through the course of T2DM. The current study aims to evaluate the role of sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH), zinc, fructose and glycosyl phosphatidyl inositol high density lipoprotein binding protein 1 (GPIHBP1) in development of DN in T2DM Iraqi patients. This is a nested

Prevalence of breast cancer by core needle biopsy at Al Elwiya Maternity Teaching Hospital

Abstract : Breast cancer (CA breast) is most common cancer in women globally. It accounts for 23 percent of cancer cases worldwide. To evaluate demographics and incidence of breast cancer in Iraqi women undergoing obstetric care at Al-Elwiya Maternity Teaching Hospital. A prospective observational research done in Breast clinic at Al-Elwiya Maternity Teaching Hospital between January 1, 2021 and January 1, 2022. Patients were women who came with a breast mass for whom a core needle biopsy revealed breast c

The Pharmacologic Role of Antioxidant Property of Beta carotene in Reducing Amikacin-Induced Nephrotoxicity

Abstract : Nephrotoxicity is a great healthcare challenge in clinical care settings. Kidneys are subject to meteors from different chemicals, drugs, and xenobiotics; which make them susceptible to injury, among these are aminoglycoside antibiotics. A wide variety of therapeutic remedies has been used to protect kidneys against the toxicity of various drugs and chemicals including, vitamins, minerals, and herbal products. Beta carotene can decrease oxidative stress, so it can protect the kidney from the tox

Device associated nosocomial infection in NICU: a prospective observational study.

Abstract : Nosocomial infections(NIs) are the most important current challenge faced by neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Although systematic surveillance is an integral part of all approaches to decreasing NIs, the current methods for recording healthcare-associated infections in our country are grossly inadequate. To determine the prevalence and risk factors for device-associated infections in a tertiary care center in eastern India. This prospective observational study was undertaken in the NICU, D
