Abstract : Metformin recently has been known to be able to regulate the AMPK/mTOR pathway and be able to regulate several autoimmune, inflammation, malignant and aging related conditions. This study aims to evaluate the effect of intraperitoneal versus oral metformin on IL-17 levels on a pristane induce female BALB/c mice. Thirty-one female BALB/c mice, aged 6 weeks and weighted approximately 25 grams, induced with 0.5 ml of pristane (2,6,10,14 tetramethylpentadecane, TMPD) intraperitoneally. After 120 days, treatment group given normal saline 100 mcl, oral metformin 100mg/kgBW, or intraperitoneal metformin 100mg/kgBW. After 60 days of treatment, all treatment groups were sacrificed, and kidney specimens prepared and stained using H&E. Interleukin-17 level was measured using ELISA. Results - Post induction with intraperitoneal pristane, there was a difference in IL-17 level between normal control and SLE model groups (52.33 vs. 64.20 pg/mL; mean difference 11.87 pg/mL; 95% CI 8.93 – 14.81 pg/mL; p<0.001). Comparison between normal saline control with oral metformin group resulted in IL-17 levels of 64.62 vs. 60.30 pg/mL (mean difference 4.31 pg/mL; 95% CI 0.83-7.79; p=0.021). Comparison between normal saline control with intraperitoneal metformin group resulted in IL-17 levels of 64.62 vs. 55.04 pg/mL (mean difference 9.57 pg/mL; 95% CI 4.17-14.97 pg/mL; p=0.004). Metformin is a potential new therapy to reduce the levels of IL-17 in SLE and in turn, inhibits the development of glomerulonephritis. Intraperitoneal metformin, or intravenous in human, could provide a novel route of administration to improve the effect of metformin on lupus patients.

Abstract : Functional use of the hand is pertinent to many areas of occupational performance in activities of daily living. The hands are used to complete a wide range of tasks such as dressing, bathing, eating, self-care, toileting, cooking, driving work, leisure activities and play. Hand function plays a major role in the performance of the activity of daily living. The purpose of the study is to improve the hand function of hemiplegic stroke patients. This study was aimed to compare the effects of Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy and functional task-oriented training to improve the hand function in hemiplegic stroke patients. A comparative study was done for 30 hemiplegic patients who were picked using a convenient sampling method from Isari Mission Hospital, Thalambur were chosen based on inclusion criteria and Exclusion Criteria They were then divided into two groups Group A – Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy. Group B – Functional Task-Oriented Training and followed up for 12 weeks. The pre-test and post-test values were assessed for Handheld dynamometer and Pinch gauge. The paired t-test revealed that there was a significant increase in hand function in GROUP A (constraint-induced movement therapy) when compared to GROUP B (functional task-oriented training). 12 weeks of treatment in improving hand function in hemiplegic stroke patients. The conclusion of the study is that the palmar pinch, lateral pinch, power grip shows significant improvement in hand function by using constraint-induced movement therapy (Group A) than functional task-related training (Group B) in hemiplegic stroke patient.

Abstract : Inappropriate use of medications during pregnancy may result in some functional and structural side effects on the development of the child. This study was set to ascertain the prevalence of self-medication practice and associated factors among pregnant women in Baghdad city. A cross-sectional survey was carried out among 550 pregnant during the period from January through June 2019. The sample was collected from 20 primary health care centers (ten in each side of Baghdad). Out of 550 pregnant, 48.6% reported practicing self-medication (medical and herbal), predominantly among the age group (20-29 years) and mainly in those with primary and secondary education (47.8%, 49.2%). The main precipitating factors were previous experiences (37.2%), easy access from pharmacies (33.8%), and to save89 doctor’s fees (25.6%). There was a significant relation between self-medication and age, parity and stage of pregnancy. Although 48% believe that it is harmful to the fetus; 28.9% of the participants expressed an intention to practice self-medication in the next pregnancy. Self-medication in Iraq is an important health problem considering its relatively high prevalence. Easy access to a wide range of medicines without prescription is the main factor responsible for this irrational use.

Abstract : To determine the occlusal characteristics of deciduous dentition in a sample of Iraqi preschool children from Baghdad city. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 313 children aged 3–5 years, enrolled in public and private kindergartens in Baghdad city. Parents and school prime approval was attained for children's participation. The clinical examination was performed under natural daylight by well-trained previously calibrated orthodontist to record the characteristics of the primary dentition. Data analysis was performed using Pearson's Chi-square test and the findings showed high prevalence of normal occlusion with no statistical gender and age difference.

Abstract : We presented a case of a 32-year- old Chinese lady who presented with intermittent epistaxis and nasal blockage for 2 years duration. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a large well defined symmetrical soft tissue mass lesion arising from the mucosa of the nasopharynx. Endoscopic excision of the tumor was performed and the final histological examination was compatible with sinonasal lymphoepithelial carcinoma. The patient was then referred to the Oncology team for further management in view of postoperative radiotherapy.
