Abstract :

Abstract— Depression is a disorder of mood resulting in the reduction of productivity, an increase of suicide risk, and decreasing quality of life. The pathogenesis of depression might be associated with interleukin 6 (IL-6) that increases among depressed patients. Serotonin selective reuptake inhibitors (SRRI) agents have been widely used for the treatment of depression, but no reference discussed the comparison of the level of IL-6 among patients who were treated with SSRI and non-SSRI. This study determines the difference in serum IL-6 level among depressed patients were treated with SSRI and non-SSRI antidepressants. A cross-sectional study among 79 (54 SSRI groups and 25 non-SSRI groups) participants who were diagnosed with depression, having the medication with an antidepressant for at least 1 month were performed. The subjects then asked for venous blood collection for the serum IL-6 level examination. The comparison of serum IL-6 level was analyzed using the Mann-Whitney U Test. Our results demonstrated that there are no significant differences in the demographic, clinical characteristics, and serum IL-6 level among SSRI compared to the non-SSRI group (p=0.605). in conclusion, there is no significant difference in serum IL-6 levels among SSRI-treated depression patients compared to the non-SSRI groups.

Abstract : The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the relevance of remote and preventive diagnosis. In an age of social distancing and self-isolation, developing personalized COVID-19 self-testing and monitoring systems is an important area of healthcare. The aim of the study was to develop and apply methods for the automated study of the acoustic characteristics of COVID-19 cough to optimize early diagnosis and assessment of disease dynamics. The study was conducted by Acoustery project team (Russian Federation) and Astana Medical University (Republic of Kazakhstan). For training and validation of the algorithm, data from 70 people (35 without COVID-19 and 35 with confirmed COVID-19) were used. 2-3 cough episodes were recorded for each study participant. In total of 196 cough episodes were recorded. Moreover, cough acoustic patterns were analyzed by a pulmonologist. Acoustic criteria that are signs of COVID-19 were identified. The results of this study may contribute to the development of effective remote screening to COVID-19 and increase the effectiveness of government control of the spread of the SARS-COV2..

Abstract : Substance abuse namely alcohol, tobacco and illicit drugs are equally prevalent among women, although it was predominant by men, previously. Furthermore, there is also a biological gender difference between men and women in overall understanding on this matter. The aim of this review is to explore the issues and challenges that experienced by the women with the prevention program on substance abuse. The epidemiology on substance abuse in women are seen increasing in trend majority in many parts of the world. Among the issues seen are dependency and health related problem which comprised of the communicable and non-communicable diseases, and socio-economic impact to individual, family as well as the community. Subsequently, to tackle these, prevention approach should be from top to bottom which includes the law and legislation with policies that may need to be empower and enforced, continuous education, multiagency approach and enhancement on the research, development and technology. Therefore, it can be seen all the variation occurred as the interplay of the gender, behavior and environment that lead to more impact on this vulnerable group. As a conclusion, substance abuse is a public health enemy. Thus, it is important for all level of stakeholders to work together to achieved better health among the women and free from substance abuse..

Abstract : Maternal infant bonding is an emotional maternal-driven process that occurs towards her infant. During postpartum period mothers experience several abrupt changes. Disordered bonding may cause and / or complicate depression, anxiety and stress. The aim of the study is to screen for depression, anxiety, stress, and to determine their correlation with each other and with maternal infant bonding during postpartum period. This study is carried out on 37 mothers from 2nd to 6th month postpartum, attending Basateen Gharb PHC, Cairo, Egypt, for routine follow up visits. The used tools include; Postpartum Bonding Questionnaire (PBQ), Perinatal Anxiety Screening Scale (PASS), Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) and Perceived Stress Scale -10 (PSS). They screen for maternal bonding disorders, anxiety, depression and stress, respectively. According to PBQ, 48.6 % (n=18) of participants have disordered bonding; EPDS identified that 51.4% (n=19) of participants suffers from a depressive illness of varying severity. PASS scores classified 35.2% of mothers (n=13) to have severe anxiety symptoms. PSS showed that 64.8% (n=24) of participants experienced high stress score. There was correlation between PBQ & PASS, PBQ & EPDS and PBQ & PSS. Strong correlation (p <0.001) was found between PASS and both EPDS and PSS, as well as between EPDS and PSS. Depressive, anxiety and stress symptoms were significantly more prevalent in mothers with disordered bonding. Bonding disorder, depression, anxiety and stress symptoms were quite prevalent in postpartum mothers. This highlights the importance of assessing postnatal women for possible mental health disorders during routine follow up visits..

Abstract :

The oxidation effects of ionizing radiation are well established and fully understood. However, exposure to very low doses of widely used isotopes may result in minor and hidden oxidative stress in some forms of hemoglobin. This formation alteration regarding the legends of hemoglobin's stereochemical function may play a role in hemoglobin disfunction.  This study was conducted on thirty-two male rabbits (Orycytolagus cuniculus) subdivided into two groups: control and animals exposed to gallium-68 isotope at a similar dose commonly used in diagnostic protocols for humans. Blood samples were collected twice: one after two hours of injection and the other after twelve hours. A linear, four-mathematical-equations matrix based on the Lamber-Beer law was used to measure the concentration of different hemoglobin derivatives. Results revealed a significant elevation of methemoglobin, the oxidized form of hemoglobin, two hours after injection, but this effect is completely reversed after twelve hours. This concludes that even low doses of isotopes result in oxidation of hemoglobin that recovers shortly.
