Abstract : Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is the most common hematological malignancy. In the past few decades, the incidence of Non-Hodgkin lymphomas was raised in the world. The aim of this retrospective clinical study was to evaluate the special clinical parameters of patients with NHL in head and neck and to assess the incidence in different age groups. The retrospective study presents 121 files of patients immunohistologically diagnosed with NHL of head and neck. The patient files were obtained from the archives and the clinical parameters such as age, sex and site of the lesions were evaluated. A total number of 121 patients, 74(61.2%) men and 47(38.8%) women with a non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the head and neck area were evaluated and analyzed from 2010 to 2018. The higher incidence of NHL of head and neck was presented in age group of less than 40 years 45(37.2%) cases. In regarding to lesions site, the neck was the more incidence than other parts 27(22.3%) cases. The more incidence of high grading lesion was in age group less than 40 years 19(15.7%) cases. In this study, the NHL of head and neck comprised 32.9% of all hematological malignancies and the vast majority cases were in the age group ˃ 40 years and rarely occurred in the oral cavity and the mixed large and small B cell lymphoma subtype was the most common form. The survical lymph nodes were the most common site followed by tonsils.

Abstract : The relationship between nurses' job satisfaction and stress is well documented. However, there is a lack of studies about the relationship between job satisfaction, anxiety, and depression among nurses. The general purpose of this study was to identify the effect of job satisfaction on anxiety and depressive symptoms among critical care nurses. This was a cross-sectional study with a convenience sample of 220 critical care nurses from one hospital from three sectors, governmental, private, and teaching in Amman, Jordan. Job satisfaction, anxiety, and depressive symptoms were measured by self-reported questionnaires. The whole sample was ambivalently satisfied, and having mild anxiety symptoms, and moderate-severe depressive symptoms. Nurses who were working in the intensive care units were the least in their level of anxiety and depressive symptoms and highly satisfied compared to other groups. Nurses who were working in the governmental hospital had higher levels of depressive symptoms than nurses who were working in a private hospital, and they were less satisfied. Working in the intensive care units decreased anxiety symptoms by 0.18 score, and every score increased in job satisfaction, decreased anxiety symptoms by 0.19 score. Being married increased depressive symptoms by 0.26 score and working in governmental hospitals increased depressive symptoms by 0.19 score. Every score increased in job satisfaction, decreased depressive symptoms by 0.27 score. Job dissatisfaction increased levels of anxiety and depressive symptoms among nurses. This might increase rates of burn out and intention to leave workplace areas ending with shortage and impairment of quality of care. The implementation of different strategies to improve job satisfaction among critical care nurses is necessary.

Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and is a leading cause of cancer-related mortality. The SOX2, having the ability of cancer stem cell self-renewal is responsible for the development of breast cancer. Objective: This study aimed to determine the frequency and gene expression pattern of SOX2 and its association with clinicopathological factors in invasive breast cancer in East Coast Malaysian women. Material and methods: The SOX2 expression was evaluated by immunohistochemistry on 100 samples of histologically diagnosed cases of invasive breast carcinomas, with known ER, PR and HER2 status,  retrieved over 4 years period from January 2012 to December 2015.  Positive samples were subjected to fluorescent in-situ hybridisation to determine the gene expression pattern.  Result: The SOX2 expression was detected in 6% of invasive breast carcinomas, and all these cases were due to gene amplification.  There was a significant positive correlation with tumour recurrence (P<0.001), large tumour size (P<0.001), lymphovascular invasion (P=0.006) and lymph node metastasis (P<0.01). The SOX2 expression was not correlated with age group (P =0.078), tumour grade (P = 0.465), ER positivity (P= 0.578), PR positivity (P= 0.578) or HER2 over expression (P= 0.541). Conclusion: The SOX2 expression has a potential to be used as a prognostic marker in breast cancer in which the expression indicates potential for early recurrence and aggressive tumour behaviour.  The SOX2 may also be considered as a target for immunotherapy to personalise the therapeutic strategies especially in preventing tumour recurrent..

Abstract : Throughout history, many cultures considered the heart is the main source of emotions, passion, and wisdom. Also, it was used to feel the experience of feeling or sensation and other emotional states. Several years ago, some investigators have proved the existence of a little brain on the heart which acts like a real brain in the head. A pioneer, in the field of making decisions, did extensive research to explain the concept of the intrinsic cardiac network and introduced it as a functional “heart brain”. His work demonstrated a complex intrinsic nervous system in the heart, that is deemed sufficiently sophisticated to qualify as a “little brain” in its own right.Some of the first researchers in the field of psychophysiology to examine the interactions between the heart and brain were John and Beatrice Lacey. During 20 years of research throughout the 1960s and 70s, they observed that the heart communicates with the brain in ways that significantly affect how we perceive and react to the world. So this review aimed to through more light on heart-brain connection which proof the heart ability to work independently with memory keeping.

Abstract : parenting a child with ASD is very demanding. the nature of the diagnosis, child behavior, sign and symptoms of ASD, financial burden and parental isolation putting parents at risk for developing PTSD while perceived social support might decrease their risks. The purposes of this study were to explore predictors of risk of PTSD among parents of child with ASD and checking the moderation effect of social support between gender and risk of PTSD. Quantitative cross-sectional descriptive – correlation design including 142 parents covering all centers in Amman was applied. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Checklist for Diagnostic Statistical Manual 5 (PCL-5), Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS) and socio-demographics checklist were used in this study. Parents of children with ASD were at high risk of PTSD. Being a mother, the lowest perceived social support, those who pay for the treatment, the longest time since diagnosis and severity of the diagnosis predicted higher parental risk of PTSD while perceived social support moderates the relationship between gender and risk of PTSD. Findings emerged from this study allow nurses to understand and priorities the reasons of PTSD and will help them to develop appropriate nursing care plans. Moreover, a supportive program to the parents, especially mothers is needed. This supportive program should include informational support, financial support and social support. The effect of these programs can be evaluated through interventional studies in the future.
