Abstract : It has been found that adipose tissues are able to produce certain secreted protein called Meteorin- like (Metrnl) as a novel adipokine, homologous to the neurotrophin metrn It may be considered as a hormone present in the circulation and secreted by white adipose tissues and skeletal muscles. This study was a trial to evaluate the relationship between metrnl serum level and insulin resistance. Patients and Method The study included 120 individuals categorized into two groups Group1 that included 68 patients with type II Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). The source of the sample was the patients who attended the Diabetic Center at one of the major hospital in Basrah City. The second group included 52 healthy individuals. Metrnl (pg/ml) and several biochemical parameters were estimated for all participants including fasting blood glucose (mg/dL); Insulin) mlU/L); hemoglobinA1 (%); Alanine aminotransferase; aspartate aminotransferase and lipid profiles; Result: s. Metrnl was significantly increased in T2DM patient (4853±2930), p >0.05 compared to healthy (568±208). In conclusion: This study confirmed the positive correlation between metrnl plasma level and T2DM. Accordingly, an increase in metrnl plasma level may be workable procedure in insulin sensitivity..

Abstract : Dengue, a viral infection is caused by the DENV virus, is a major public health concern in Asian countries including India, with manifestations ranging from mild dengue fever (DF) to severe and life-threatening dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) and dengue shock syndrome (DSS)1. Physicians mostly depend on serological tests to confirm dengue and the newly disseminated serological test kit, to diagnose COVID-19, but there seems to be a serological overlap between the two diseases. 1. To identify the cases of dengue and Covid-19 co-infection 2. To determine if there is a serological cross-reactivity between dengue fever and Covid-19 3. To prevent initial misdiagnosis which might cause a change in treatment plan and significant losses. The present study is an observational study conducted among 104 Covid-19 positive cases with dengue like symptoms admitted to SRM Medical College and Hospital and Research Centre, Potheri for a period of 6 months. Dengue Elisa test for Ns1, IgM, IgG, will be tested in Covid-19 positive patients with dengue like symptoms. In the patients with positive dengue Elisa test, Dengue [RT-PCR] is done to see whether initial results are false positive or co-infection. Out of 104 Covid-19 positive patients included in our study more individuals are found to be >61 years old. And out of 104 participants, 64 are male and 40 are female. We performed dengue Elisa on all the participants who are Covid-19 positive to rule out possible dengue coinfection. Ns1 antigen for dengue was negative in all, while IgM Elisa was found to be positive in 41 (39%) patients which is suggestive of acute dengue coinfection. 3 (3%) patients had positive dengue IgG Elisa results, out of them two had Ns1, IgM negative and one had both IgG, IgM positive. All three had no past history of dengue infection. To confirm whether the dengue IgM positive results are due to coinfection or antibody cross-reactivity, we further proceeded with dengue RTPCR which is a gold standard test for confirmation. Interestingly, all IgM positive patients were tested negative for dengue RTPCR. Hence, it can therefore be assumed that the dengue IgM, IgG positive results in Covid-19 infected individuals are due to antibody cross-reactivity and not a coinfection. Failing to consider COVID-19 because of a positive dengue test result has serious implications not only for the patient but also for public health. As a result, it's time to emphasize the importance of recognizing false-positive dengue serology results in patients with COVID-19..

Abstract : Meningitis is a serious deadly disease with high mortality if not rapidly treated. The typical clinical features of fever, neck stiffness and headache had poor diagnostic sensitivity. The need of rapid early detectection methods are needed to rescue patients. Few studies are conducted in Egypt for early detection of acute meningitis. The aim of this study is to determine the clinical charateristics and causative agents of acute meningitis among hospitalized febrile patients. A prospective cross sectional observational study. The study included 350 cases admitted with suspected meningitis. Lumbar puncture: for collection of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples. CSF analysis, microbiological examination of CSF, and blood culture and antibiotic sensitivity test were done. Brain magnetic resonant imaging (MRI) was performed before lumbar puncture in some patients. Detailed analysis of epidemiologic characteristics, clinical data and laboratory findings, the causative organisms, prognosis of all the patients with acute bacterial meningitis (ABM) were studied. Meningitis occurred at all age groups. A significant proportion of meningitis patients (60%) reported a positive history of antibiotic intake in the few days (3-5) before admission to the hospital. 79.1% of ABM patients had a CSF leukocyte count in the range of > 100 up to 1,000 cell/mm3 and 80% had CSF neutrophil percentage > 50%. The pathogens were detected by direct Gram-stained smear in 86.4% of patients. Gram +ve bacteria was detected in 55/110 (50%) of cases. Gram -ve bacteria detected in 40/110 (36.4%) of cases. ABM carried a high mortality rate (22.7%). ABM had 22.7% mortality rate. Meningitis is endemic in Egypt with a significant mortality rate. Strept. pneumonia was the most common offending organism. Clinicians should be aware of the dynamic changes of acute meningitis for rapid diagnosis and earky administration of suitable therapy..

Abstract : Excessive time spending on screens has been associated with negative health outcomes which might include children obesity and unhealthy weight gain. The main objective of this study is to find the relationship between screen time and weight status, in school aged children.200 children of both sexes (boys and girls) with age ranged from 8 to 10 years old were selected from governmental schools in Zagazig city, Egypt, assessment of weight status was by body mass index (B.M.I) equation, weight and height were assessed using a height weight measuring scale, while screen time was assessed by using screen questionnaire (screen-Q). The Results showed that There was a significant association between screen time and weight status (p = 0.04) in weekday. (p = 0.03) in weekend days. There was increase in the percentage of screen time more than 4 hrs in weekday of overweight and obese children compared with that in normal and underweight children. There was decrease in the percentage of screen time more than 4 hrs in weekend day of normal children compared with that of other categories. We Concluded that The correlation between screen time (ST) and body mass index (BMI) was weak positive significant correlation at the selected age..

Abstract : Any surgery carries with it the risk of complications. Complications were defined as any deviation from the normal postoperative course. The post-operative complications are always of concern to surgeons. These complications can result in increased morbidity and mortality. Early identification of risk allows for targeted, anticipatory, appropriate and supportive medical care, which will reduce both the incidence and severity of such complications. The identification of modifiable risk factors gives possibility for early perioperative care, leading to improved outcomes of a surgery. Identification of risk factors can help in improvising the existing ERAS (Enhanced recovery after surgery) protocols. Early identification of postoperative complications and prompt management can reduce the morbidity and mortality. Wound infection (27) was the most common complication among study subjects. Burst abdomen was observed in 7 patients. These complications were mostly associated with emergency abdominal surgeries and in contaminated cases. Hence, care must be taken intraoperatively as well as immediate postoperative period to avoid/minimise such complications. Phlebitis (24) was the second most common complication in our study which in turn is a common cause for postoperative fever. DVT and urinary retention were the least common postoperative complication which occurred in only 2 patients each in our study. Among the risk factors associated with the incidence of postoperative complications, age above 50 years was the major risk factor followed by addictions, which include smoking and alcohol abuse. Hence, it is important to counsel the patient about abstinence of smoking and alcohol consumption for avoiding postoperative complications and early recovery..
