Abstract : Threatened miscarriage is the most common complication of pregnancy; it associated with an increased incidence of adverse pregnancy outcome. This study was carried out to evaluate the effect of threatened miscarriage in the first trimester on the maternal and neonatal outcome. A prospective follow-upcontrolled design performed on 100 pregnant women who attend the antenatal clinic at Wadi Addwaser General Hospital, with the inclusion criteria fulfilled. A purposive sample used, and the interviewing questionnaire was designed by the researcher to collect the data. The risk pregnancy outcomes were significantly higher in the studied group compared to the control one. A woman with threatened miscarriage had a significantly higher rate of unexplained antepartum hemorrhage, Placenta Previae, pregnancy-induced hypertension, premature rupture of membrane and pre-term delivery < 37 weeks (16%, 22%, 14%, 26%, and 44%, respectively). They are more likely to experience low hemoglobin level during the time of abortion and at the time of delivery (10.41±1.17 and 10.09±1.26, respectively). Fetal small for gestation, low birth weight, lower Apgar score at first and fifth minutes, and neonatal intensive care unit admission were significantly higher in the miscarriage group compared to control one. Pregnancy with threatened miscarriage associated with an increased risk of maternal and neonatal complications. So, special attention is needed during antenatal care for women with a threatened miscarriage to minimize these complications, and hemoglobin measurement should do for these women with inexpensive and accurate methods.

Abstract : Obesity is a serious common nutritional condition among children. The global childhood obesity prevalence has tripled since 1970. The purpose of this study was intended to assess gender and age groups that are greatest affected by obesity and overweight among 9 -12 years’ Palestinian school-age children. A cross-sectional study was conducted. A random sample was composed of 971 children with ages ranging from 9 to 12 years old. The results of the study showed that the highest obesity found 13(8.7%) in females age 9 and 12 (12.6%) in males age 12 years. In females, those of age 12 had the highest mean in waist circumference of 65 (SD=7.9) and of 79 (SD=7.8) hip circumference. While the highest mean of WHR were in those of age 10 of 0.847(SD=0.060) and WHtR of 0.453(SD=0.050) in those of age 9 and of 0.453(SD=0.043) in those of age 10. In males, the age 12 was the highest mean in waist circumference of 66 (SD=10.372) and hip circumference of 79 (SD=12.09). While the highest mean of WHR of 0.89 (SD=0.127) and WHtR of 0.4567(SD=0.066) were in those of age 9 years. This study reported a relatively high prevalence rate of overweight and obesity among children. Obesity among boys was higher than in girls.

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.
