Abstract : Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes. It is preventable and curable. In 2018, there were an estimated 228 million cases of malaria worldwide. The estimated number of malaria deaths stood at 405 000 in 2018. Children aged under 5 years are the most vulnerable group affected by malaria; in 2018, they accounted for 67% (272 000) of all malaria deaths worldwide. The WHO African Region carries a disproportionately high share of the global malaria burden. In 2018, the region was home to 93% of malaria cases and 94% of malaria deaths. Total funding for malaria control and elimination reached an estimated US$ 2.7 billion in 2018. Contributions from governments of endemic countries amounted to US$ 900 million, representing 30% of total funding. As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads rapidly around the globe, there is an urgent need to aggressively tackle the novel coronavirus while ensuring that other killer diseases, such as malaria, are not neglected. The WHO Global Malaria Program is leading a cross-partner effort to mitigate the negative impact of the coronavirus in malaria-affected countries and, where possible, contribute towards a successful COVID-19 response. The present review attempts to assess the progress gained in malaria elimination during the past few years and highlights some issues that could be important in successful malaria elimination.

Abstract : The external factors of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) consist of plays where the athlete’s motion is disrupted by something else if the player was wearing a brace, the type of footwear being worn, and the playing surface itself. The purpose of the study was to evaluate players' and coaches' awareness of ACL injury. This study was a descriptive cross-sectional study. The study conducted on 91 participants (83 players and 8 coaches) from different areas of Palestine. The results showed that 48.2% of the studied players and 37.5 of coaches realized the role of sports as a risk factor of ACL injury. Also, the analysis showed that 72.3% of players and 87.5% of coaches’ participants were aware of ACL injury. The study confirmed that most players and coaches had adequate knowledge of ACL injury, and also realized that the main cause of ACL is sport activity.

Abstract : The risk factor for the musculoskeletal disorder related to handheld devices will be persisted gripping, repetitive movements of the wrist, thumb, and fingers. The purpose of the study was to assess the effect of using mobile hand-held devices on the musculoskeletal system among physiotherapists. Method: This study was a descriptive cross-sectional study. The study conducted on 70 physiotherapists from Jenin city and under-graduated students of physiotherapy at Arab American University Palestine (AAUP). Results: the mean of the impact of using hand held-devices on Upper back/neck/shoulder pain was (3.39837), the impact of using hand held-devices on Upper back/neck/shoulder pain was (2.27834), the impact of using hand held-devices on Elbows/Wrist/Hand pain was (3.4), and the impact of using hand held devices on Knees/Feet pain was (1.5). Conclusion: The study confirmed that using hand held- devices had a negative effect on the upper musculoskeletal activity but the low effect on lower limbs.

Abstract : The study analyzed the various morphometric measurements of the right and left auricle in the Undergraduate Arab students of Gulf Medical University. A total of 100 undergraduate students of Gulf Medical University {50 males and 50 females} that met the inclusion criteria. Morphometric data w was collected. Measurements were taken using Digital Vernier calipers with accuracy of 0.01mm, and Digital camera was used to take picture of the participant’s ear. The data was analyzed using SPSS. The mean and standard deviation of age and height among male subjects were 19.660± 1.585 and 175.22 ± 6.008 cm; respectively, while for female subjects were 20.140 ± 1.738 and 160.14 ± 5.817 cm respectively. The various measurements such as Auricle width, Concha width were highly significant on comparing right and left side in male subjects. In female subjects, Auricle width and Base of auricle were highly significant on comparing right and left side. The data generated in the present study can be utilized in the diagnosis of congenital anomalies, ear reconstructive plastic surgeries, and particularly in ergonomic design of hearing aids and forensic applications of ear prints.

Abstract : Patients with β-thalassemia major (β-TM) often present with endocrine abnormalities, mainly due to dysfunction in their hypothalamic-pituitary axis, such as delayed growth and puberty. We aimed to assess the growth parameters of patients with β-TM and to evaluate the growth hormone (GH)- insulin like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) axis. This case-control study included 50 patients, 8-19 years old, with β-TM registered at Basra Center for Hereditary Blood Diseases, Southern Iraq, and 75 apparently healthy subjects. Anthropometric data were evaluated using the WHO Child Growth Standards. Growth hormone provocation test, serum IGF-1, ferritin, thyroid and gonadotropin hormones were also measured. Twenty-six (52%) β-TM patients had short stature. Patients with β-TM had significantly lower peak GH levels (after induction) and IGF-1 levels compared to the control group, (P < 0.01 and P < 0.001, respectively). Growth hormone deficiency and impaired IGF-1 were found in 65% and 92% of patients with short stature, respectively. The GH deficiency was observed after a provocation test with a cut- off peak less than 7 or 10 ng/ml. Moreover, significant negative associations were reported between serum ferritin and peak GH (r - 0.239), IGF-1 (r - 0.386), thyroxine (r - 0.423), and hemoglobin (r - 0.612) levels. IGF-1 can be considered as a useful and sensitive test in assessing growth retardation among pediatric patients with β-TM. In addition, more than one-third of patients were GH-sufficient, suggesting a multifactorial origin rather than GH deficiency alone.
