Abstract : A common medical condition in Iraq is chronic kidney disease. Anemia seems to be a serious complication of chronic kidney disease which can be attributed to many factors. The introduction of Erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESA) has made a dramatic change in the management of renal anemia; however, low sensitivity to Erythropoiesis stimulating agents or increase dose required has been noted in a considerable proportion of ESA receiving patients and it has been linked to adverse outcomes. Vitamin D3 deficiency has a main role in the pathogenesis of CKD; the studies have shown a pleotropic effect of vitamin D3 as anti- inflammatory agent beyond its critical role in calcium homeostasis. Two groups as below to be enrolled in this study for three months divided as: Group A: 20 patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) on regular hemodialysis will receive only epoitinalpha 4000 IU twice weekly. Group B: 20 patients with ESRD on regular hemodialysis will receive epoitin alpha 4000 IU twice weekly plus 50,000 IU/week of nutritional vitamin D3 for ten weeks. The results in this study showed the treatment group has significant increase in vitamin D3, Hb and (p≤0.05) but significant decrease (p≤0.05) in ERI. While the result of control group showed not significant change in Hb and ERI but significant decrease (p≤0.05) in vitamin D3. Restoration vitamin D3 to the normal level could be occur by administration 500000IU accumulative dose of vitamin D3 supplement and this increasing may influence on reducing the dose of ESA needed or hypo responsiveness and improving of anemia state for the hemodialysis patients..

Abstract : The present study was to evaluate the relationship between ADHD and DAT1, DRD4, and DRD5 genes in adolescent. This was a case-control study that included 24 adolescents the aged of 12-19 years old. DNA isolation was made to determine methylation status of DAT1, DRD4 and DRD5 genes. The obtained data was analyzed using SPSS 21 program and descriptive analysis, Pearson correlation, Spearman correlation, Fisher t-test, Kolmogorov-Smirnov, and Mann-Whitney U test were used. Methylation levels of DAT1, DRD4 and DRD5 genes in adolescent with ADHD adolescents with ADHD were compared with case and control group. There was no statistically significant difference between the two groups. However, moderately significant correlations were found between the scale scores given to the participants in the case group and the control group the methylation levels of the DAT1, DRD4 and DRD5 genes. As a result, DAT1, DRD4 and DRD5 genes found to be correlated with total methylation or methylation levels of CpG islets. The role of DNA methylation in ADHD etiopathogenesis has been shown. The results will be important for genetic, neuroimaging and neurochemical evaluations..

Abstract : The induction of general anesthesia allowed surgeons to operate with careful deliberation on patients made totally unaware and pain free. [sa1] Endotracheal intubation and laryngoscopy are essential tools in the hands of anaesthesiologists in maintaining an airway. Endotracheal intubation has been an integral part of anaesthetic management and critical care of the patient and has been practiced following its description by [1]. Thus the research began for better intravenous induction agent which has good control over haemodynamics of the patient. Myoclonus is a common problem during induction of anesthesia with etomidate. In this study we compared the effects of Dexmedetomidine and Midazolam pretreatment on the incidence of etomidate induced myoclonus..

Abstract : Post Operative Sore Throat (POST) is one of the most common, yet overlooked complaints following endotracheal intubation. Significant discomfort can be experienced by patients undergoing the procedure. Many factors are contributory to the development of POST, and the incidence depends on the method chosen to manage the airway, highest being after intubation (45.4%), whereas it decreases with use of the Laryngeal Mask Airway (17.5%) and further decreases on use of face mask. There is a large variation in incidence, with various studies estimating it to be from 21% - 65%, with some studies showing an incidence up to 90%. Various pharmacological measures that have been tried to decrease POST include inhalation of beclamethasone, aspirin, ketamine and licorice gargles, intravenous steroids, magnesium lozenges/local spray with lidocaine, and nebulisation with ketamine. This current study was planned to test and compare the efficacy of Aspirin and Normal Saline gargles given 15 minutes before induction of anesthesia on reduction of post-operative sore throat caused by oral endotracheal intubation. A prospective, double, blind, randomised, comparative study was carried out on 56 cases for a period of 2 years. Candidates were divided into 2 groups of 28 patients each, Group A and Group N. Group A Received Aspirin 350mg dissolved in 30 ml distilled water. Group N received normal saline 30 ml. After analysing the results obtained, it was concluded that Pre-operative gargles with Aspirin 325 mg in 30 ml Normal Saline for 30 seconds is an easy, cheap, patient friendly and efficient way of reducing both the incidence and severity of Post-Operative Sore Throat (POST) following oral endotracheal intubation. There were no side effects observed and patients were able to comfortably follow instructions..

Abstract : Periodontal diseases are common oral health problems worldwide and affect up to 50% of the population globally. The bidirectional relationship of periodontal diseases with various systemic diseases has been reported in several studies. The successful prevention and management of periodontal diseases depend on the knowledge and attitude of medical practitioners towards the oral health. Hence, this study was undertaken to assess the knowledge, attitude and practice of medical practitioners of Kuala Muda district towards the relationship between periodontal health and systemic diseases. Ninety-five medical doctors from various specialties of medicine were included in this cross-sectional study. A self-administered questionnaire was used to evaluate the knowledge, attitude and practice of medical doctors. Though the mean periodontal knowledge scores of specialists (10.37±1.617) were slightly higher than the mean scores of general practitioners (9.83±1.564), the difference was not statistically significant (p= 0.105) at the 0.05 significance level. There was a statistically significant (p = 0.037) negative correlation (r = -0.215) noted between the years of practice/experience of medical doctors and their mean periodontal knowledge scores. The study demonstrates that medical doctors had fair knowledge about the periodontal diseases and their relationship with the systemic diseases. However, the practice and attitude of medical doctors towards the screening/referral of patients for oral and periodontal health checkup needs to be improved..
