Abstract :

Food safety remains of concern to health workers involved in the recognition, diagnosis and surveillance of foodborne illnesses, and to the food handlers, as it remains to be a major source of morbidity and mortality. Risk prevention associated with foodborne illnesses requires knowledge and awareness regarding personal and food hygiene, and safe practices concerning food handling, preparation and storage. This study aims to evaluate the knowledge and practices among health workers and food handlers, to gain a better understanding of the gaps in knowledge and practice that might result in foodborne illnesses. This cross-sectional study included 100 participants Public Health Specialists and health workers in Food Control Section, Communicable Disease Control Unit, and Health Promotion Specialists working in Ministry of Health, and 100 food handlers. Information concerning demographic data, food safety knowledge and practice were collected using a self-administered questionnaire. 89 health workers had completed the questionnaire, versus 79 from the food handlers’ group. Both health workers and food handlers surveyed, chose correct responses concerning the food microbiology and cross contamination with a percentage ranging from 78.5% to 98.9%. Similar results were found in both groups in relation to food contamination, hygiene, and food handling questions. Both surveyed groups reported high scores concerning personal cleaning and hygiene practices as well as safe food handling practices. The results showed a great level of foodborne disease knowledge among surveyed health workers and food handlers. In addition, the majority of the respondents adhere to appropriate food handling practices.

Abstract : Short sleep duration could be a factor of the occurrence of obesity and insulin resistance. Insulin resistance might cause various metabolic problems. Several previous studies have conveyed dissimilar results. The present study aimed to analyze the relationship between sleep duration and insulin resistance in obese adolescents with metabolic syndrome. This study used cross-sectional research design with 124 obese adolescents with metabolic syndrome aged 13-18 years in Surabaya and Sidoarjo as the research subjects. Anthropometry (e.g. weight, height, and waist circumference), blood pressure, and blood tests (e.g. HDL cholesterol, triglyceride, and fasting blood glucose levels) were conducted to determine obesity according to CDC 2000 and metabolic syndrome according to International Diabetes Federation 2007. Insulin resistance was assessed by using HOMA-IR. Sleep duration was determined based on direct interviews with the research subjects. The obtained data were analyzed using Spearman correlation test, Chi-Square, Mann-Whitney, and T-test (significant at p <0.05). The subjects were dominated by male adolescents (67.7%). There was a meaningful relationship between age and sleep duration (p = 0.035). Subjects were divided into two age groups namely those aged 13-15 years and 16- 18 years. The results showed that sleep duration and HOMA-IR values as a marker of insulin resistance had a significant negative correlation (rs=-0.605; p <0.001). Sleep duration has a robust negative correlation with the HOMA-IR value, which is a parameter of insulin resistance..

Abstract : The objective of this study was to determine phage types, biotypes and antimicrobial resistance patterns and their correlation of Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi and Salmonella enterica serotype paratyphi isolated from blood, so that appropriate strategies can be adopted in the management of enteric fever. A total of 22 S. enterica serotype Typhi isolates from 300 blood samples from BacT alert system were send for phage typing and biotyping to Lady Harding Medical College New Delhi and also tested for their antimicrobial susceptibility profile. Out of 22 strains 2 strains were not revived, so we got report of only 20 strains The commonest phage type was E1 10(50%), some strains were Deg vi (degraded Vi) strains 5(25%), and Vi negative strains 1(0.05%). UVS (Untypable vi strains) 2(10%) and two strains were Phage type 2(10%) A single phage type and biotype were prevalent among the Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi and Salmonella enterica setotype paratyphi isolates studied from Aurangabad, Maharashtra..

Abstract : Oral cancer is one of the most frequently occurring cancers worldwide. Treatment of oral cancer includes radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery depending on staging of the cancer. Treatment may have many difficulties resulting in impairment of quality of life both functionally and psychologically. Oral mucositis is one of the most common complications in patients with Head and Neck cancer receiving radiotherapy. It has a great impact on quality of life in terms of physical pain affecting the patient’s ability to eat, swallow and speak. This study was intended to evaluate the efficacy of mouth wash containing Turmeric Triphala & Honey in patients with oral cancer undergoing Radiotherapy for Head & Neck Cancers. The study population comprised of 30 patients with head & neck cancer scheduled for undergoing radiotherapy who were divided into two equal groups, Group A given ORO-T mouth wash Containing Turmeric Triphala & Honey along with glycerine) and Group-B given glycerine at 3rd week and at 5th week of radiotherapy. Patients were asked to swish 10 ml of ORO-T diluted with water in 1:3 ratios for 1minute and then instructed to spit it out. Glycerine was applied topically over the mucosa. Symptoms were recorded based on WHO Mucositis Assessment Scale and pain score was recorded using VAS scale. This study included 30 patients in which Group A included 15 patients had given mouthwash (ORO_T) containing turmeric, honey, triphala, and glycerin, and Group B had only glycerin. Symptoms of oral mucositis was analyzed between both groups using the who oral mucositis assessment scale at the 3rd week and 5th week At 3rd week the results were statistically not significant with a p-value of 0.17. At 5th-week in both groups the results were statistically significant with p-value of 0.05. The mean score for pain in the 3rd week in both groups was 5.93 and 5.80 respectively and the results were not statistically significant, with a p-value 0.60. The mean score for pain at the 5th week in both groups was 3.60 and 4.27 respectively and the result were statistically significant with a p-value of 0.05. Our study showed that ORO –T mouthwash was effective and safe than topical glycerine in the management of radiation induced mucositis..

Abstract : To estimate IgE and histamine levels in patients with drug allergy and with past history of drug allergy. Compare these levels with that of normal individuals. Assess the association of demographic factors, nature of drugs and clinical presentation with IgE and histamine levels. 113 potential participants were totally interviewed. 66 selected based on selection criteria. 22 had current allergy (CA), 22 past history of allergy (PA) and 22 without any allergy (NA). Study was initiated after getting IHEC approval and informed consent from each participant. Estimation of serum IgE and histamine was done using ELISA kits. Demographic details, details of drugs and clinical presentation were recorded. Time interval between onset of allergy and estimation of IgE and histamine was recorded for patients with PA. Results were analyzed using ANOVA and student t test. p<0.05 was considered significant. IgE and histamine levels were significantly higher in CA compared to NA and PA subjects. Normal mean level IgE was 72.6 IU/ml and histamine 42.53 ng/ml. In PA levels were higher than that of NA but lower than CA. Males and civil workers had a higher level than females. Age related difference in the levels was not observed. NSAIDs induced allergy resulted in maximum elevation of IgE (538.74 IU/ml) and histamine (158.32 ng/ml) followed by antimicrobials (IgE 395.97 IU/ml) and histamine (133.42 ng/ml). Patients who developed maculopapular rashes had maximum level of IgE (627.87 IU/ml) and histamine (182.25 ng/ml). The time dependent decline in both the levels was observed in PA. Higher IgE level was associated with higher level of histamine in all the groups. CA, NSAIDs and maculopapular rashes resulted in maximum elevation of IgE and histamine. In PA, IgE level was higher than NA group. Whether estimation of IgE would indicate past allergy or the tendency to develop allergy has to be assessed by further studies..
