Abstract : Quality of life is a broader term than Health-Related Quality of Life(HRQoL), as it involves the evaluation of components that extend beyond physical and mental health such as educational, spiritual, financial, social and environmental. In this study, we have focused on assessing the quality of life among parents of children with malignancy. A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted among 110 parents whose child was diagnosed and undergoing treatment in tertiary medical care hospital. Purposive sampling was used to select the sample size. Data was collected using the WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire and data analysis was done using SPSS software. The mean scores obtained by the parents in different domains along with perceived overall QoL and perceived health status. On assessing the quality of life using the WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire, the study participants obtained the highest mean score of 58.51±15.51 in the Physical domain. Certain factors like education, working status, type of family, Socioeconomic status, treatment covered under insurance, support from Government /NGOs, support from family/ friends are modifiable and help in improving the quality of life..

Abstract : This in vivo study aimed to investigate the effect of matrix metalloproteinase MMPs inhibitors (2%chlorhexidine digluconate (CHX), and ethylene diaminetetra acetic acid (EDTA) on microtensile bond strength to dentin using etch and rise adhesive. Nine adult mongrel dogs of age range (12 -18 months) were included in the study. A total of 90 standardized class I cavity were prepared in upper and lower (canine - first and second molar). The teeth were divided into three main groups (n = 30) according to the type of MMP inhibitors were used: the control group (no MMPs inhibitors were applied), the CHX group, and the EDTA group. Each group were divided into three subgroups (n=15) according to the testing periods 6 and 12 months. At the end of each testing period, animals were sacrificed, teeth were separated from the jaws, mounted on cutting machine, and sectioned into a series of 1mm thick slabs. Micro-tensile bond strength was measured for each sample by using universal testing machine. Data were tabulated and statistically analyzed. Results of micro-tensile bond strength showed that after 6 months, there was a significant difference between MMPs inhibitors, while after 12 months the difference was not statistically significant. The control and CHX groups showed a significant higher values than EDTA. This study concluded that MMP inhibitors did not interfere with micro-tensile bond strength of composite to dentin, with slightly significantly increased in CHX. Micro-tensile bond strength decreased by aging time and the best results were in 6 months of aging periods..

Abstract : Tumours of myoepithelial differentiation have only in the last two decades been recognised to occasionally arise from soft tissue. Malignant mixed myoepithelial tumour of soft tissue is an exceptionally rare diagnosis, with less than 10 reported cases to date. Diagnosis is often challenging due to histological polymorphism, variability of immunophenotype and the absence of a cellular counterpart. A 22-year-old man presented with a seven-month history of an enlarging subcutaneous mass on the occipital scalp, measuring 10x14cm. Following excision under general anaesthetic, histopathological and immunohistochemical analysis demonstrated features most in keeping with a malignant mixed tumour of soft tissue. A further 2cm wide local excision was performed, followed by post-operative radiotherapy; to date there has been no recurrence. Soft tissue myoepithelial tumours can be up to 20cm in size, with larger size often associated with malignancy. The size of the tumour in this case enabled primary closure for both excision and wide local excision..

Abstract : Thalassemia major is a serious chronic hemolytic anemia that leads to excessive iron accumulation in vital organs like the liver & the heart. This high level of iron can lead to serious cardiac complications and is the cause of high morbidity & mortality in these patients. Early evaluation of cardiac function is very important to detect those with asymptomatic functional cardiac abnormalities. To assess the effect of thalassemia on the left ventricular systolic function using conventional echocardiography. This is a cross sectional case control study conducted at the Thalassemia Center in Al-Zahraa teaching hospital/Najaf from the period of January 2022 to January 2023. Eighty five patients with β-thalassemia major who were asymptomatic for cardiac diseases & 43 healthy controls of similar demographic factors included in the study & all were examined with echocardiography to assess the left ventricular function and both groups were subdivided into 2 age groups. Twenty two cases were diagnosed with left ventricular systolic dysfunction using the Simpson method (ejection fraction ˂ 55) & 13 cases by the M-mode (fractional shortening ˂ 27). Significant negative correlation was found between the ejection fraction & serum ferritin. Increase left ventricular internal dimension in diastole is the first parameter that indicates early systolic dysfunction followed by left ventricular internal dimension in systole & reduction in left ventricular posterior wall thickness in systole, ejection fraction & fractional shortening in the following years..

Abstract : Dyspepsia consists of heterogeneous group of symptoms that are localized in the epigastric region and can be broadly defined as pain or discomfort that is centred in the upper abdomen (particularly the epigastrium). The multienzyme preparation “Unienzyme” is a fixed dose combination (FDC) which contains Fungal Diastase (alpha amylase) and Papain as the major constituents apart from simethicone, activated charcoal and nicotinamide. The combination acts as supplemental enzymes to those secreted by the body. Since majority of patients require long term symptomatic treatment for functional dyspepsia, we undertook a survey to evaluate the efficacy, tolerability as well as other parameters such as duration of treatment, time to get relief from symptoms etc. The survey was conducted between July 2023 to October 2023 in Africa specifically in Tanzania and Zambia. The questionnaire was developed for doctors who were prescribing Unienzyme with MPS to their patients for gastrointestinal disorders and who consented to participate in the survey. A total of 105 doctors participated in this survey. Findings about efficacy and tolerability also coincides with the study conducted by Banka et al (8), while the 95.6% patients in their study and 86.66% doctors in our study rated the efficacy from good to excellent. 94.5% patients in previous study and 84% doctors in this study rated the tolerability of Unienzyme as very good to excellent. The difference could be attributed to clinician’s judgement in our study as compared to patients’s judgement in previous study. The present survey confirmed that Unienzyme is highly efficacious with good tolerability in relieving the symptoms of troublesome functional dyspepsia in African population especially Tanzania, Zambia and neigbouring countries..
