Abstract : Cardiovascular disease causes a number one world compared to other diseases. Cardiovascular disease can be predicted with several measuring instruments, one of which is the Framingham Risk Score (FRS). FRS is used to calculate the estimated risk of cardiovascular disease in the next ten years. This study was conducted to determine the relationship of age, sex, treatment of hpertension, history of diabetes mellitus, smoking behaviour, blood pressure, and BMI with the risk of cardiovascular disease. This type of research is a descriptive-analytic with approach cross-sectional. The population is employees at Respati University, Yogyakarta. The sampling technique uses incidental sampling, that is 79 respondents. The instruments used were the Framingham Risk Score, digital Sphygmanometer, Microtoise, and digital scales. Bivariate test using Somers'D. Most of the respondents in late adulthood were 32 respondents (40.5%), the sex of the male battery was 56 respondents (70.9%), did not take hypertension treatment that is 60 respondents (75.9%), did not have diabetes mellitus 73 respondents (92.4%), and nonsmokers, 58 respondents (73.4%). Bivariate test results between age, sex, history of diabetes mellitus, smoking behaviour, blood pressure, BMI, and treatment of hypertension with a risk of cardiovascular disease were p-values 0.002; 0,000; 0.003; 0.005; 0.005; 0.007; and 0, 089. There is a relationship between age, sex, history of diabetes mellitus, active smokers, blood pressure, and BMI with the risk of cardiovascular disease while hypertension treatment is not related to the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Abstract : The present study aimed to assess self-care management of patients with heart failure in king Khaled hospital in Najran city southern kingdom of Saudi Arabia. A descriptive cross-sectional study design was conducted on 52 patients with heart failure admitted to the king Khaled hospital - cardiac department .data were collected to assess self-care management which regarding to compliance of treatment medication, sodium, restriction of fluid, take weights daily, practice regular exercises, and keeping appointment. The data were collected from all patients and the analyzed using SPSS version 23 software. The result of present study revealed that of 52 patients’ compliance ranged between 9.6% and 86.5 % of the patients. the high rate of compliance was found in Keeping follow-up appointments 45(86.5) % and take your medications exactly   as directed 43 (65.3%). The highest rates of non-compliance are found in fluid restriction 47(90.3%) , and exercise 40(76.9%) ,and  follow a low sodium diet 30 (57.7%). The present study shows that knowledge deficit is seem the most important reason of poor self-care management, lack of knowledge to avoid drinking excess fluids 46 (88.5%), lack of knowledge to comply with the dietary High in potassium, 43(82.6%) and lack of knowledge   to weight myself daily 37(71.1. The result of the present study concluded that low knowledge of the patients about their illness which reflect on poor self-care of HF patient.

Abstract : Oxidative stress is a status that can prevent people from suffering from diseases including cancer. The 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) is a marker that reflects oxidative DNA damage in the body.  In this study, Traganum nudatum plants were investigated for their potential to protect cellular DNA from oxidative damage by evaluating 8-OHdG assays in cultured human lymphocytes by incubated in ethanol extract of Traganum nudatum (0.05, 0.1, 0.5, 1 and 2.5 mg/mL).  White Blood samples were taken from healthy volunteers and lymphocytes were isolated. The lymphocytes were then incubated in aqueous and ethanol extract of rosemary (0, 10, 100 and 1000 µg/ml). The obtained extracts at 10,100 and 1000µg/mL from aerial parts ethanolic extracts of Traganum nudatum significantly decreased the levels of 8-OHdG (P < 0.01). suggesting their usefulness as protective agents against oxidative DNA damage and offering pharmacological credibility to the ethnomedical traditional usage of the plant in medicine, modifying its beneficial application against free-radical-induced diseases.

Abstract : There is a growing evidence linking the autonomic nervous system with various physiological and pathological states. The changes in heart rate (HR) rely on a balance between the influence of the parasympathetic and the sympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) on the heart. There are few researches on effect of BMI and heart rate variability (HRV). A case-control study (120 participants; 60 preelamptic and 60 control) were conducted at Omdurman Maternity Hospital and Saad Abul Ela Maternity Hospital - Sudan, during the period from June 2015 to December 2016. Medical, obstetrics history and clinical examination were performed to all studied women guided by prearranged questionnaires. Cardiac autonomic modulation (CAM) of the heart was examined in both studies based on HRV indices, namely, the natural logarithm (Ln) of the standard deviation of the NN intervals (LnSDNN), the square root of the mean squared differences of successive NN intervals (LnRMSSD), total power (LnTP), very low frequency (LnVLF), low frequency (LnLF) and high frequency (LnHF). Also, normalized low frequency (LF Norm) and high frequency (HF Norm) and LnLF/HF ratio were measured. The study demonstrated that in the normal weight group, women with preeclampsia had significantly higher LnSDNN, LnVLF and LnLF [P > 0.05]. Also, there was no significant difference in the HRV measurements between overweight and obese groups of the women with preeclampsia as well as the controls. The study revealed that preeclampsia could occur in the absence of obesity.

Abstract : auto-polymerized acrylic resins are widely substances utilized for the fabrication of orthodontic appliances. Such substances have poor mechanical properties and prone to fracture. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the effect of incorporating titanium dioxide nanoparticles to auto- polymerized acrylic resins in terms of the surface hardness. thirty specimens were constructed in total. They were fabricated from auto-polymerized acrylic resins. Ten specimens were considered as control and the other 20 specimens were reinforced with the titanium dioxide powder at 1% and 2% respectively. All specimens were subjected to the hardness tester. The SPSS version 20 was used to analyze the data, and the Tukey test was used for the comparison among the 3 groups. The results indicated that the titanium dioxide improved the surface hardness strength of acrylic resins. No significant differences were found between control and TiO2 1 groups; TiO21 and TiO2 2 groups where (P>0.05). on the other hand, there was significant difference between control and TiO2 2 groups where P≤0.001.the adding of titanium dioxide increases the surface hardness of auto-polymerized acrylic resins.
