Abstract : All patients admitted with clinical diagnosis of “Diabetic or Non-Healing ulcers or traumatic ulcers” under General Surgery care in SRM MEDICAL COLLEGE HOSPITAL AND RESEARCH CENTRE were taken as Subjects for this study with a sample size of 116 in each group based on previous study. After initial assessment of wound as per the PUSH criteria (Pressure Ulcer Scale of healing) initial wound debridement was done and in silver Nano group ulcer were treated with silver Nano colloid gel and in conventional group ulcer are treated with saline. Patients were then subjected to regular investigations and dressings. The wound was assessed as per PUSH scale for a period of 8 weeks. Wound score was noted at 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th weeks of the study and the data collected were evaluated statistically with p value less than or equal to 0.05 as an indicator of statistical significance. After treatment, in silver nano group, wound score is 4.20 and in conventional group it is 6.88. There is statistically significant association between two groups with respect to wound score (P=0.01). The two groups are similar with respect to wound area at baseline,2 weeks and 4 weeks. They differ statistically with respect to wound area at 6 weeks and 8 weeks (P=0.01). Amount of exudate is similar in both the groups at baseline. They differ statistically at 2,4,6th and 8th week. Amount of exudate is less in the silver nano group compared to conventional group. The two groups are comparable with respect to type of tissue at base line and second week. They differ statistically at 4th, 6th and 8th weeks. There is early granulation followed by rapid epithelisation in silver nano group compared to conventional group. The percentage reduction in score as per PUSH scale is calculated. In silver nano group 74.40 reduction score and in conventional group it is 60.80 which is of statistical significance. Mean duration of hospital stay was significantly less in silver nano group compared to conventional group. In Present study to assess the role of silver nano colloid in treatment of diabetic ulcer we conclude that silver nano colloid particles are effective in treating patients with diabetic ulcers than that of conventional dressings in terms of wound size, exudate amount, and tissue type.".

Abstract : Cytogenetic biomarkers are commonly used in assessing the impact of environmental, demographic, life style exposures, occupational, and medical factors on genomic instability. The acquisition of genomic instability, a condition that predisposes a cell to accumulate stable genome mutations represents an early step in the process of carcinogenesis. Micronucleus (MN) testing serves as an important biomarker in assessing DNA damage defects in mitosis. Cytokinesis Block Micronucleus (CBMN) cytome assay is a multi- endpoint assay that not only assesses DNA damage endpoints in the form of micronucleus (MN), nucleoplasmic bridges (NPBs), and nuclear buds (NBUDS) but also other cytotoxic events such as necrosis, apoptosis, and cell proliferation are measured. In this brief review, we would like to discuss the evolution of the CBMN cytome assay as an effective biomarker for risk prediction, screening, and diagnosis in cancer..

Abstract : Contamination of hospital water supply with potentially pathogenic organism can occur from various environmental sources leading to serious implications when used for various activities of parient care. The intensive care units are most frequently involved setting but high risk immunocompromised patients can be affected irrespective of ward. Hence the present study was conducted to assess the extent of bacterial contamination among water sources used by healthcare professionals. 50 tap water samples from various areas of Medical College and Hospital were collected. 100 ml sample was passed aseptically through 47 mm diameter and 0.45 μm-pore-size cellulose nitrate sterile membrane filter grid held in a filtration unit. This transferred to MacConkey and blood agar plate and incubated at 37o C. Total number of colonies were counted as colony forming units. Bacteriological analysis of water sample from operation theatres found satisfactory. Paediatric ICU 1 & 2 showed 12 and 8 colonies/100 ml respectively and Klebsiella pneumonia was isolated. Similarly, Pseudomonas spp from obstetrics and gynaecology ward, Klebsiella pneumoniae from male orthopaedic ward while Acinetobacter hemolyticus from neurosurgery ward were isolated with significant colony count. Regular disinfection and bacteriological assessment of all water sources are important in controlling healthcare associated infections..

Abstract : This study is conducted to compare the Space occupying lesions of liver its demographic, clinical, imaging & cytopathological correlations & further treatment measures in our institute. Prospective observational study was conducted in our institute from 2019 to October 2021 following approval from ethical committee of hospital. Both Male & Female with all age group patients were included in the study. Mean age of 50 study was 47.36% with highest 53 years & lowest 36years. There were 38(76%) male & 12 (24%)female. 46%were Hepatic abscess, most common lesion of liver followed by metastatic lesions of liver 24%. SOL was most common in 4th & 5th decade. USG was sensitive in all the SOLs but CT was more specific. As per our study, we inferred that abscess was most common space occupying lesion of liver for which ultrasonography was not only diagnostic but also therapeutic, as well in simple hepatic cyst & hydatid cyst. CECT was able to differentiate between Simple hepatic cyst & Multiple liver abscess from Multiple metastatic liver lesions. Hepatic Abscess, Simple Hepatic cyst were 47% managed conservatively. While Hydatid cyst Pigtail was treatment modality..

Abstract : To determine the frequency of thyroid function abnormalities in patients with septicemia. Faisal Hospital Karachi from July to December 2021. This crossectional study was conducted in the medical wards and Intensive care unit of Faisal Hospital Karachi. Total 100 consecutive patients of either gender age 14 years and above admitted with the diagnosis of septicemia were included and venous blood sample was collected for determination of Free T4 (FT4), Free T3 (FT3), and Thyroid stimulating Hormone (TSH) levels within 24 hours of admission. Those who have known thyroid illness, having history of thyroidectomy, pregnancy, and puerperium and on medications causing alteration of thyroid function were excluded. Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 25 was used for the data analysis. Mean age of the participants was 48.9+ 20.3 years and 48% were male and 52% were females. Around 86% had FT3 lower than 1.4pg/ml, 56% had FT4 lower than 0.8ng/dl and 64% had normal TSH. Around 50% of the participants were expired in this study. In expired patients 44(51.2%) had low freeT3, 36(64.3%) had low T4 and 8 (25%) had low TSH. This study demonstrate that TSH levels are within normal range in most patients while FT3 and FT4 are markedly low, and among those who died more than 50% had low T3 and T4. Thyroid dysfunctions are common among female septic patients as compared to males. There is an association in between abnormal thyroid functions and the mortality in septic patients so these patients should have to be treated appropriately..
