Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is one of the infectious problems in patients undergo hemodialysis (HD) management of end-stage renal disease. Hepatitis C virus infection is considered as the most common chronic liver diseases in patient on (HD). The objective of this study is to determine the prevalence of HCV by antibody testing among patients diagnosed with CKD on regular (HD) from January 2019 to December 2021, and identifications of major risk factors that can increase the risk of hepatitis C in those patients, undergo (HD), by standard questionnaire including the age, gender, the number of blood transfusions patients had received, frequency and the duration of dialysis. An observational cross-sectional study was carried out for the determination of the hepatitis C prevalence in (284) patients diagnosed as chronic kidney disease on hemodialysis in ALAMAL HAEMODIALYSIS CENTER in AL MUTHANNA GOVERNATE & the data was obtained from information in patients ‘medical records.
Depression and suicide are increasing concern on cancer patients. Cancer represents the second leading cause of mortality in the world. To assess the prevalence of depression and suicidal behavior among cancer ill patients at Zagazig University Hospitals. A cross sectional design was utilized in the current study on a sample of 513 cancer ill patients at 3 oncology out-patients clinic "the hematology clinic, Internal medicine tumor clinic and oncology and nuclear Medicine Clinic" at Zagazig University Hospitals. The tools used for data collection were Socio-demographic data sheet, Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II) and Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS). Of the current study revealed that the prevalence of depression and suicide behavior among cancer patients was (30.4%) and (0%) respectively. There was no correlation between depression score and suicide score. The present study proven that depression is more common in patients with cancer. Depression increased by age, secondary level of education, single, retired, who had gastrointestinal tract, head and neck cancer. The oncology out patient's clinic must include multidisciplinary psychiatric team who are fully involved in each patient's management plan.
This research refers to the study effect of vibration resulting from the rock crushing device on human health by studying the effect on the blood parameters of workers on this device for a period ranging from ten years and above. Samples were collected from people working in rock breakers (Jackhammer) in several areas of the province on 10/5/2020 and the results were as follows, After collecting the samples, we performed some tests on them to find the difference between the people who work in the rock crushers and the people who do not work in them, and the difference was between them. Mg / dL (120 - 145). For those who do not work in this field, the percentage of fats is mg / glitter (150-180). The albumin testing sites are in a relative increase, but also within the natural limit for people working in rock crushers. The ratio was between g / dL (4.5-5.5). The places of ordinary people were g / dL (3.4 - 4.4). As for the rest of the checks, they were close Most likely natural.
The rapid increase in the production of MBL and EXBL among the members of Enterobacteriaceae, primarily Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae), E. coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) that represent the most frequent human infection causes, is a severe global issue related to the public health. Because there are few options of the treatment for infections resulting from MBL and ESBL-producing bacteria, treating these infections can be complicated, and treatment failure is common. Regular drug resistance surveillance amongst clinical isolates will assist to determine true severity of the situation and, as a result, establish the appropriate policy for reducing the prevalence of drug resistance among bacteria. Furthermore, understanding local antimicrobial susceptibility patterns will aid in starting timely adequate preliminary treatment .
Anti-inflammatory intermediaries like Ficolin-3 (FCN-3) have a central function in the disease regulation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This study was designed to explore the relationship between FCN-3 and cert anthropometric measurements in RA patients with and without COVID19 and to investigate whether there are any correlations between FCN-3 with a Number of Anthropometric measurements. The study comprised 28 patients with RA and 28 of who infected with COVID-19 previously diagnosed with RA and 28 age- and sex-matched healthy control subjects (HCs). FCN-3serum concentrations were estimated by ELISA. The width of waist (W.W), hip (W.H), thorax (W.T) and neck (W.N) were calculated, along with body mass index (BMI) for all subjects. Ficolin-3 serum concentrations were significantly greater in patients with RA and RA with Covid-19 patients Nevertheless, RA patients and RA with Covid-19 patients showed lower levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Elevated serum concentrations of FCN-3 were found to be positively associated with waist to hip ratio (W/H), waist to thoracic ratio (W/T), waist to neck ratio (W/N), ESR, while raised serum concentrations of FCN-3 were positively related with W/H, W/T, SBP, DBP, creatinine and total cholesterol (TC). FCN-3 exhibited the highest ROC curve value in comparison to other studied markers. Serum Ficolin-3 levels can be used as a novel biomarker in the detection of RA and may be an effective biomarker in the diagnostic test of RA.
