Abstract : Obesity is one of the most common silent diseases worldwide with a high prevalence in the Middle East, especially in Saudi Arabia. This study was designed to observe changes in serum proteins in obese and overweight blood donors based on body mass index. SAS 3 electrophoretic protein analysis was performed on donor blood samples and analyzed using serum protein gels. A total of 120 sera were analyzed from different blood groups and different body mass index (BMI) categories. A significant adverse effect of obesity on serum protein levels, specifically (P≤0.05) gamma globulin, in blood types was observed in O, A, and AB blood groups. These results indicate a relation between serum protein concentrations and obesity in the O, A and, AB blood groups. Further studies involving more participants, advanced techniques, and negative blood groups are needed to validate these findings.

Abstract : Violence against teachers has been highlighted as major challenges in academic settings. It is directly associated with the development of fear among teachers and has negative consequences on the effectiveness and efficiency of teachers in teaching. The study aimed to investigate the prevalence and impact of violence against teachers on their socio-psychological wellbeing. Teachers were randomly picked from different schools in Jordan. The questionnaires were distributed to 257 teachers and were analyzed by correlation matrix and factor analysis. The results showed that more than three quarter (84.6%) of the teachers had intention to leave their profession due to violence at workplace. A positive strong relationship exists between quitting profession and poor work management (r=0.813). Violence at workplace is strongly associated with anxiety, depression, and social withdrawal (r=0.886). Only14.9% teachers had neutral perception and 84.6% of the teachers agreed to leave the profession due to violence that caused anxiety and depression. There was a strong association between the Anxiety Depression and Leave Profession. Cognitive and behavioral changes among the teachers were caused due to long-lasting impact of violence causing disturbances in their social life. The increased level of stress among teachers due to violence negatively affected their personal relationships. Some teachers left their profession due to poor work management and positive and strong association between “Leave profession and Poor work management” (r=0.813). In conclusion, Psychological stress is associated with violence against teachers that negatively affects their life; whereas, persistent exposure to violence has negative impact on cognitive processing.

Abstract : To find the causes of surgical cancellations in patients attending a preoperative assessment clinic and scheduled for surgery at our institution. This audit included all those patients who presented to the preoperative assessment clinic with their surgeries planned in the main operating rooms of our hospital. The duration of this audit was three months. Canceled cases were identified from the operating room lists and the reasons for cancellations were categorized into two factors. forty-seven (47) cancellations were identified; clinical problem (66%) and administration factors (34%). In clinical problems, the most common causes are upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) and listen for wheezes, cough, rales, or lower airway rhonchi preoperative examination, which was found on 9 (19%) and 8 (17%) patients. Meanwhile, the availability of NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) or PICU (pediatric intensive care unit) space is the main reason for surgical cancellation related to administration factors, amounting to 8 (17%) Patients (Table 3A and Table 3B). Most of the patient-related factors were found to be uncontrollable. Administration factors related to cancellations might be reduced with better communication between Anesthetic themselves and the surgeons.

Abstract : Leptin is an ob (obesity) gene, a fat tissue determined hormone that assumes the main role in the guideline of muscle versus fat mass by regulating hunger and digestion while adjusting vitality admission and use. The objective of this study was to assess the conceivable relationship between serum leptin levels, lipid profile and Body Mass Index (BMI) between smokers and nonsmokers. One-hundred and eight subjects of 18 to 26 years males of ASU students were randomly chosen in this study. The subjects were grouped according to smoking criteria (53 smokers and 55 nonsmokers). After a complete assessment, statistical information was recorded and BMI. Fasting blood tests were attracted to quantify serum leptin, serum glucose, and triglycerides (TG), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and Cholesterol levels. The significance of the measured values and their correlation and regression (p and r) with the smoking habit using SPSS package version 22 were calculated. Serum leptin levels and differences between smokers and nonsmokers were not significant. The mean values for smoker leptin were 10.52 ±9.79 ng/ml and 11.17±9.09 ng/ml for non-smokers. The leptin levels were highly significant at (p<0.001) with BMI and subject weight, the leptin level of subjects with BMI (30 to 34.9) was 23.61±2.05 ng/ml and 28.45±1.2 ng /ml in those of BMI >35. The levels of serum leptin for non-smokers and smokers are not significant regardless of being on the borderline of the upper value of 9.2, whereas, leptin levels expand with BMI in overweight and obese subjects compared to normal BMI (18.5-25).

Abstract : Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a non-infectious disease that has become a public health problem in Indonesia. We examine the relationship between smoking risk factors, lower respiratory tract infections, leukocyte count (eosinophil, neutrophil, and lymphocyte), and thoracic rays and varying degrees of stable COPD. This study is quantitative and uses a cross-sectional research design. Samples were taken from patients with stable COPD who were treated in Sukapura Jakarta Islamic hospital. The date of the study on November 30, 2017. There were 37 patients as samples study using a total sampling technique. The data used in this research are secondary data from the COPD patient medical records. The chi-square test was employed. This test is used to identify whether or not there is a significant relationship between independent variables and a dependent variable. Statistical tests were completed using SPSS 16.0. The most prevalent COPD risk factor associated with a moderate degree of COPD was being a smoker. The degree of COPD was obtained from leukocytosis results from 13 patients. The degree of severe COPD was obtained from the results of the chest x-ray of 1 patient. The most severe degree of COPD was obtained from the high neutrophil results of 2 patients. The majority of COPD patients included moderate COPD, including more severe smokers, those who had smoked for over 30 years, and trends including bronchitis, leukocytosis, low ESR, eosinopenia, neutropenia, and lymphocytopenia.
