Abstract : Obesity in adolescents contributes to an increase in the prevalence of non-communicable diseases in adults or the elderly. One of the reasons is poor diet quality in adolescents. This study aims to identify the effectiveness of nutrition education using low energy density menu replica model on the diet quality of obese adolescents. This study used quasi experiment with control group. Sample of the treatment group was 24 obese adolescents at Senior High School Angkasa Lanud Husein Sastranegara Bandung, and 23 obese adolescents at Senior High School 9 Bandung as the control group. The effect of nutrition education using low energy density menu replica model compared to a balanced nutrition leaflet on nutrition knowledge and diet quality was identified using independent t-test analysis. Diet quality was obtained from Diet Quality Index International (DQI-I) scores. There was significant difference in the mean changes of nutrition knowledge scores between the treatment and control groups (p <0.05). Nutrition education using low energy density menu replica model effectively increased the mean score of diet quality significantly among obese adolescents (p <0.05). Nutrition education using low energy density menu replica model can be part of the health program at school.

Abstract : The World Health Organization outlined effective measures and guidelines to curb the rapid spread of the highly infectious COVID-19 virus. However, the growing cases in Jordan, and other nations around the globe raises concerns on the adherence level to such guidelines. Therefore, this research study was designed to determine the level of knowledge, practices and barriers towards the COVID-19 infection prevention strategies among University Students in Northern Jordan. Accordingly, the researcher administered a survey to 501 participants for subsequent analysis. Statistical analysis using SPSS, version 25 reported adequate knowledge scores (84.4%) among the participants. There was proper adherence to general hygiene (89.2%) hand hygiene (87.7%), and respiratory hygiene (80.8%) practices. Lack of personal protective equipment and the inconvenience of staying at home are the leading barriers to stopping the spread of COVID-19. Gender, marital status, level of education and age have a statistically significant impact (p<.05) on the participants’ knowledge towards the overall prevention of the virus spread. Nonetheless, there is still need for government, through the healthcare personnel to provide the necessary equipment and also increases awareness among the university students in Jordan to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Abstract : Insertion of central venous catheters into the internal jugular vein, the procedure is often associated with complications, with arterial puncture occurring most commonly. We reported a 60 years old woman in which open surgery was performed following the misplacement of tunneling hemodialysis catheter into the carotid artery. From the intraoperative findings, the catheter had passed through the right internal jugular vein, tunneled into right common carotid artery and the tip of the catheter entered the aorta. When the internal carotid artery was opened, we observed that there was no thrombus formation around the hemodialysis catheter and occluded the artery. Early open surgery performed as soon as possible in the accidental misplacement of a hemodialysis catheter is recognized. There is no serious complication has found such as major stroke due to intra-arterial thrombus occur because of an arterial misplacement of the hemodialysis catheter.

Abstract : The chaotic behavior of cancer cells forces scientists to develop mathematical models or systems of differential equation to interpret such a behavior and human body immune response. In this paper, we investigate dynamics and factors concerning cancer cells growth introduced by Banasiak, Laohowicz and Moszynski in 2002 where numerical simulations illustrate the growth of cells chaotically side by side with biological simulations. Furthermore, according to those numerical simulations, we investigated the relationship between cancerous cells growth and the patient’s immune to Covid-19. In addition, we tried to use connected topological spaces to model the danger of Covid-19 on cancer’s patients.

Abstract : Human cytomegalovirus infection has been implicated to be associated with colorectal cancer (CRC) progression and possibly in tumorigenesis. The up-regulation of Interleukin-1 IL-1 agonists (IL-1α and IL-1β) has been associated and / or implicated in recent years in promotion of tumor progression, invasiveness and metastasis of many tumors. The present study aimed to evaluate the co-expression of IL-1 beta along with HCMV infection in a group of colorectal carcinoma tissues. Eighty-one formalin-fixed, paraffin- embedded colorectal biopsies were enrolled in this study; 42 from colorectal cancers, 22 from benign tumors and 17 colorectal tissues with unremarkable pathological changes (healthy control group). Chromogenic in Situ Hybridization (CISH) was done for detecting HCMV- DNA whereas immunohistochemistry (IHC) was used to assess the expressional protein of IL-1 beta gene. The CISH reactions of HCMV-DNA were detected in 57.1 % (24 out of 42) of colorectal cancer biopsies and in 31.8 % (7 out of 22) of benign colorectal tumors biopsies. 11.7%(2\11cases) positive– CISH reactions were detected in the control tissues. The positive IL-1 beta -IHC reactions were detected in 52.4% (18 out of 42) of CRC and in 45% (13 out of 22) of benign colorectal tumors biopsies. 5.8% (1\17cases) positive IHC- signals were reported in the colorectal control tissues. Statistically, highly significant differences were present between each colorectal tumors groups and the control group for HCMV & IL-1 beta. Detection of co-expression of IL-1 beta with HCMV in colorectal carcinoma could point both for their possible roles in either colorectal pathogenesis or carcinogenesis.
