Abstract : Anthracycline is commonly used in neoadjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer, although not all patients benefit from the therapy. Studies suggest that expression of TOP2A associated with Anthracycline sensitivity. Purpose: To know the relationship between the profile of baseline TOP2A mRNA expression and chemotherapy response in locally advanced breast cancer. An observational study, thirty breast cancer tissue samples pre-chemotherapy treated using cyclophosphamide-doxorubicin-5fluorouracyl regiment. Detection of TOP2A mRNA expression using qRT-PCR techniques. Clinical response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy based on RECIST criteria. The mean value of TOP2A mRNA expression in breast cancer patient’s prechemotherapy was 9.753±2.755, range 4.470–13.810. The mean value of TOP2A mRNA expression in breast cancer patients which responsive to chemotherapy was 10.601±2.208. The mean value of TOP2A mRNA expression in breast cancer patients, which nonresponsive to chemotherapy, was 6.969±2.648. Mean difference was 3.632, significant with p-value =0.001(p<0.05). There is a positive correlation between TOP2A mRNA expression with the clinical response with a value of r =0.475; this correlation was significant with p-value=0.004 (p<0.05). This study found a correlation between the profile of baseline TOP2A mRNA expression with clinical response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer.

Abstract : Anemia is considered by World Health Organization as a global health problem. It can be affected by the body mass index of an individual since increasing weight can result in low-grade systemic inflammation and elevation of hepcidin which results in sequestration of iron inside a variety of cells including macrophages, hepatocytes and enterocytes and this would lead to the development of what is known as anemia of inflammation. To evaluate the effects of body mass index on complete blood count parameters. In this cross-sectional study, the data of 200 overweight and obese patients with complete blood count, for all ages were collected. They were grouped according to body mass index into overweight and obese; different complete blood count parameters were noted. Intergroup comparison was applied regarding different blood parameters and the relations with body mass index were calculated. The prevalence of anemia was 26%. For anemic cases 71.2% are females and the residual are males. There were effects of increasing body mass index on complete blood count parameters.

Abstract :

In Indonesia, only 74% of women give birth in health care facilities. This study was conducted to analyze the socioeconomic disparities of facilities-based childbirth in Indonesia. The analysis in this study uses raw data from the 2017 Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey (IDHS). With stratification and multistage random sampling, 17,769 women aged 15-49 years with live births in the last 5 years were sampled. Data were analyzed using a Binary Logistic Regression test. Poorer women were 1.898 times more likely to use healthcare facilities for delivery than poorest women. Middle women were 2.669 times more likely to use healthcare facilities for delivery than poorest women. Richer women have 3.163 times more opportunities to use healthcare facilities for delivery than poorest women. The richest women were 6.566 times more likely to use healthcare facilities for delivery than the poorest women. Women who live in urban areas were 2.412 times more likely to use healthcare facilities for delivery than those who live in rural areas. Age, parity, level of education, ownership of health insurance, knowledge of the danger signs of pregnancy, and antenatal care, in maternity women the past five years significantly contribute to the utilization of healthcare facilities for delivery. There was a significant disparity between socioeconomic in utilizing healthcare facilities for delivery in Indonesia. Women with better socioeconomic status have better possibilities for utilizing healthcare facilities for delivery

Abstract : The focus of this study was to assess sella turcica size and shape utilizing advanced image; and to find if there is any significant difference in these variables of sella turcica as concerns to the gender, age, and groups. Data included 41 CBCT images divided into two groups: a patient group with cleft lip or palate (20 patients: 7 females and 13 males, aged between 16 and 26 years) and control group (21 subjects: 9 females and 12 males, aged between 17and25 years). Linear measurements such as length, depth, and diameter of sella turcica were investigated and its shape was described in each group. Information was analyzed by using the SPSS version 21 to compare between groups and find any statistical significance. The means of all variables appeared bigger in cleft (length: 9.65; depth: 7.94; diameter: 11.61) than normal (length: 8.6; depth: 7.79; diameter: 11.48) groups. Furthermore, each age and length observed statically significant differences between two groups (T-test:3.280, p-value:.002; T-test: 3.056, p-value:0.002) respectively. The anatomical study of sella turcica including form and dimension in normally and its difference using CBCT could be valuable for the dentist to analyze differences associated with cleft conditions and realized the reason of some signs for good diagnosis and prognosis.

Abstract : Factor V is a major part of the coagulation system and maintains a balance in pro-coagulant and anticoagulant pathways. Any deficiency or mutation can lead to disequilibrium. Factor V deficiency presents with bleeding while Factor V Leiden leads to a hypercoagulable state. Factor V deficiency can be congenital or acquired. The clinical findings range from asymptomatic to life-threatening hemorrhage. Prothrombin time and Activated partial thromboplastin time are elevated. The management includes Fresh frozen plasma infusion. This is a case of a 14-years-old female presenting with menorrhagia and hemorrhagic ovarian cyst, diagnosed as congenital factor V deficiency after factor V assay. Initially, it was considered a platelet functional defect. As seen in the current report, it is observed that patients with factor V deficiency present early in life with mucocutaneous bleeding, so early diagnosis and prompt management plays an important role in order to avoid the severe symptoms in future.
