Abstract : Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common abnormality among young women in their reproductive age. It is associated with complications such as insulin resistance, lipid profile and metabolic disorders. This study compared the relationship between vitamin D level and complications of obesity, dyslipidemia and insulin resistance in women with and without PCOS. One hundred and forty women were evaluated in this cross-sectional study (70 in PCOS and 70 in control groups). 5 cc of blood was taken from all participants to evaluate their fasting blood glucose, lipid profiles, and insulin levels. The rate of insulin resistance was calculated with the homeostatic model of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) formula. Analysis of variance and T-test were used to compare the quantitative data with a normal distribution. Non-parametric tests were used to compare data with a non-normal distribution. The association of the level of vitamin D and metabolic variables was studied with Pearson’s and Spearman’s coefficients. The vitamin D3 levels were significantly lower in PCOS group compared to the control group. However, the body mass index, insulin resistance, fasting insulin and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels were significantly higher in the PCOS group (P < 0.05). Based on Pearson’s correlation coefficient, within the PCOS group a significant, negative linear relationship among vitamin D3 level and body mass index is existing (P < 0.05). In women with a hormonal disorder of PCOS, vitamin D3 could have a critical role in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance.

Abstract : Early surgical interference for some infants with an Erb’s palsy might be an essential issue to improve prognosis in certain cases. This study aimed to take the optimal clinical decision for surgical interference of infants with Erb’s palsy in an objective way and without exploration surgery. Sixty-one infants with Erb’s palsy from both genders participated in this study. They were classified into two groups according to age, group I includes first 3 months of age and group II includes second 3 months of age. In this study, evaluation of biceps brachii was done through observation of its contraction by using Active Movement Scale, Percentage of Nerve Degeneration and distal latency was done by Electroneurography. The scores for biceps contraction, percentage of degeneration and distal latency were recorded for the two groups. There was strong inverse relation between Percentage of Nerve Degeneration, distal latency and Active Movement Scale and there was weak inverse relation between Percentage of Nerve Degeneration, distal latency and the age for both groups. Also, there was weak direct relation between scores of active movement scale age in both groups. The weak relation between age and percentage of degeneration, distal latency and scores of active movement gave us a conclusion that there is no need for delaying surgical interference till the age of 6 months after Erb’s palsy and early surgical interference at the age of 3 months is more beneficial for more improvement in infants with an Erb’s palsy.

Abstract : Population are getting older in the statistics by the WHO. Today for the first time in history most people can expect to live into their 60s and beyond. One of the main concerns of medical professionals and researchers is definitely healthy aging. The healthy aging is a key to longevity. The people of the Asia have been used various plant, aninal and mineral-originated medicines for rejuvenating and improving strength. There are about 300 formulas based on 99 different materials derived from plants, animals and minerals. The five roots have been used as rejuvenating remedies in traditional medicine. To examine the effects of aqueous and ethanol extracts of the five roots on cisplatin-induced testicular injury in rats. Aqueous (994 mg/kg) and 70% ethanol (874.4 mg/kg) extracts were given orally for 10 consecutive days. Cisplatin was administered intraperitoneally (7.5mg/kg) on the last day of the five roots treatment. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), Cinaspol were used as comparisons. Blood levels of testosterone were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Sperm motility and concentration were determined by Ds microscope and NIS-Elements. Caspase-3 and ВcL2 gene expressions were examined by Q-PCR. Testicular weights, sperm motility, sperm concentration and plasma levels of testosterone were significantly decreased in rats administered cisplatin (p<0.05) and these were significantly increased by aqueous and ethanol extracts of the five roots, DHEA, Cinaspol compared to untreated model. Aqueous and ethanol extracts of the five roots restore testicular functions by increasing blood levels of testosterone, sperm motility, sperm concentration, reducing testicular necrosis in rats administered cisplatin.

Abstract : Hemodialysis therapy will change the rhythm of a person's life for a long time. It can cause depression which is characterized by changes in behavior such as rejection, anger, fear, feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, anxiety and even suicide. If depression is not handled immediately, it will worsen the quality of life of hemodialysis patients. The purpose of this study was to examine the correlation and differences between the level of depression and the quality of life of hemodialysis patients. The study employed the descriptive comparation and correlation with cross sectional approach. The study was conducted on hemodialysis patients at Public Regional Hospital of Wates Kulon Progo, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The sampling technique used total sampling. The number of samples in this study were 64 respondents. The research instruments were the Beck’s Depression Inventory (BDI) and QoL-SF36 questionnaire. The analysis test used the Mann Whitney difference test and the contingency coefficient correlation test. The results of the study showed that the majority of hemodialysis patients were 45-54 years (32.8%), male sex (57.8%), with education background of elementary & junior high school (51.6%), married (90.6%), unemployment (28.1%), not depressed (45.3%), and with a moderate quality of life (67.2%). There was a significant difference (p = 0.023), and there was a correlation between depression and quality of life (0.008). It is expected that nurses work together with patients' families to increase patient’s acceptance to the disease, as well as measure depression levels and quality of life regularly.

Abstract : The oral intake of alpha linolenic acid (ALA) has been reported to be effective in preventing vascular disease and improving blood fat status. However, the effects of ALA-rich perilla oil consumption on individuals’ physiological indicators have not been appropriately investigated. This study therefore investigates the effects of the oral intake of perilla oil on physiological indicators. Thirty-eight participants were recruited from Fukutomi-cho, Higashi-hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan. The participants each took 5 ml of perilla oil daily for eight months. We calculated the mean values of the physiological index before and after the intake period and applied a paired-sample t-test. The results show that there was no change in body weight, body fat, blood lipid, or blood pressure. However, in addition to changes in the indicators of arteriosclerosis and anemia associated with aging, we observed a significant decrease—approximately 20%—in two kinds of blood oxidation markers and hormones related to bone metabolism. Participants’ scores on the self-evaluated depression scale also decreased significantly. These results suggest that daily intake of perilla oil may be useful in alleviating the effects of aging and depression.
