Abstract : intensive treatment of adult patients with acute lymphocytic leukemia in adults (ALL) by Asparaginase(LASP/PEGASP) was significantly improved patient outcomes. However, much less information available about asparaginase use and toxicity in adult in comparison with its effect in pediatric populations. This was retrospective descriptive study for 56 leukemia patients fromNasseriahgovernoratetreated by PEG-ASP according to UKALL XIprotocol, between January 2015 and October 2019. The Hb, WBCs count, Blastocyte percent., Absolute Neutrophil Count ANC, platelet count, survival rate,transplantation, chemotherapy regimen, duration, type of asparginase,phase, time from last ASP, events, presentation, recovery and dose, were considered and evaluated. 56 patients with ALL were retrospectively enrolled in this study at median age of 30 years. Males represented 60.7 % compared to 39.3 % females. The majority of patients 14(93%) were in phase I and the remaining in phase II.The best dose frequency was three doses that were enough for 8 patients (54%).10 of 15 patients (67%) did not undergo a transplant, while the remaining did not have to.Finally, 10 patients (67%) were survived and three of them with weakness.15(25%) of 56 patients were suffered from the following complications:CVST 5(33%), DVT 4(27%), Hyperglycemia 3(20%), and 1(7%) patient appeared with pancreatitis, biochemical pancreatitis, andskin rash. also, those patients presented with: seizure 5(33%), swelling 3(20%), polyurea 2(13%) and 1(7%) patient suffering polydipsia, abdominal pain, vomiting, redness, and pain. PEG-ASP is feasible as part of an intensive multiagent therapeutic regimen for adult with ALL. This regimen appears associated with improved outcomes,but there are differences in overall survival of those patients sufferingcomplications and those don’t.

Abstract : A considerable alveolar bone loss occurs follows tooth extraction, this bone resorption can compromise dental implant procedure, for this reason, the concept of socket preservation techniques was introduced, in which different materials placed into the extraction socket immediately after extraction to minimize alveolar bone loss. To evaluate the effects of autologous platelets poor plasma (PPP) and autologous platelets rich plasma (PRP) on the preservation of alveolar width in extraction socket with buccal dehiscence, and to evaluate the effect of PPP and PRP on the number of osteoblasts in the newly formed bone. Six adult pointer dogs were selected for this study, after flap reflection 3mm buccal dehiscence was created with trephine bur. Then the mandibular third premolar was extracted bilaterally. The extraction sites were randomly assigned to three groups: platelets poor plasma, platelets rich plasma and control. The experiment was designed to permit the examination of the extraction site after one and two months. the alveolar width measured histomorphometrically at three level that located at 1mm, 2mm and 3mm respectively from the top of the alveolar crest. The number of osteoblasts was calculated under the microscope in six fields representing the center of the extraction socket. There was no statistically significant difference in the alveolar width between all groups, regarding the osteoblast number it was significantly higher in the PRP group after one month but not after two months. While the number of osteoblasts in the PPP group was not significantly higher after one and two months. PRP and PPP may not adequately preserve the alveolar width after implantation of these materials in the extraction socket with buccal dehiscence. At the cellular level, PRP increased the number of osteoblasts in extraction site at 1 month. At later times there was no significant difference in the number of osteoblasts in the PRP and non-PRP graft.

Abstract : COVID-19 is the emerging global challenge in today's world. The primary symptoms of this disease include dry cough, fever, shortness of breath, myalgia and fatigue. Due to the extremely high infection rate, there is intense fear of contacting individuals who are suspected of being infected. Unfortunately, this amplified fear among people has led to the emergence of social stigma in certain parts of the world. Existing fear prevents individuals from thinking rationally which in turn may result in discrimination in society. Although ongoing researches are focussing on the development of effective vaccine preparation and drugs with high cure rate, the psychosocial impact of this disease is yet to be studied in detail. Recent literature has shown that there is very high prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorders, generalizwd anxiety and depression developing in the Chinese population after the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic (Liu et al). This study has tried to assess the level of fear of COVID-19 in a larger population size so that further interventions can be planned accordingly to combat the mental health problems developing due to this pandemic.

Abstract : The world still suffering from COVID-19 infection that approaching 7.000.000 victim, however, there are no accurate data about the incidence ofCOVID-19 inpaediatric age group. Inthe last days of the precedingApril 2020, the British national health council announced a warning about the ‘increased number of children with multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C), who needed an intensive care’. These children had an overlapping symptoms of toxic shocksyndrome (TSS) and atypicalKawasaki disease (KD), with laboratory results could be or not, consistent with COVID-19 infection. All cases shared a common presentation of abdominal pain, gastro-intestinal symptoms and evidence of myocarditis, mortality has been reported. In the 15th of May 2020, the WHO published a scientific briefing for thediagnostic clinical criteria, and treatment outline for this emerging syndrome. Intravenous immune globulin, convalescence plasma, anticoagulants and biological agents are the main line of treatment. Our case is atwelve years old boy from Najaf, presented with fever, sore throat, without dyspnea but with nausea, drowsiness and marked gastrointestinal symptoms and proved to be positive for COVID-19. With his investigations, he fulfilled the criteria forthe diagnosis of Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C). During early days of hospitalisation his condition deteriorated farther. He received the recommended therapy including steroids, convalescent plasma, anticoagulants, and later he required the biological agent that gave anexcellent and dramatic response, he discharged home well after few days.

Abstract : Obesity in adolescents contributes to an increase in the prevalence of non-communicable diseases in adults or the elderly. One of the reasons is poor diet quality in adolescents. This study aims to identify the effectiveness of nutrition education using low energy density menu replica model on the diet quality of obese adolescents. This study used quasi experiment with control group. Sample of the treatment group was 24 obese adolescents at Senior High School Angkasa Lanud Husein Sastranegara Bandung, and 23 obese adolescents at Senior High School 9 Bandung as the control group. The effect of nutrition education using low energy density menu replica model compared to a balanced nutrition leaflet on nutrition knowledge and diet quality was identified using independent t-test analysis. Diet quality was obtained from Diet Quality Index International (DQI-I) scores. There was significant difference in the mean changes of nutrition knowledge scores between the treatment and control groups (p <0.05). Nutrition education using low energy density menu replica model effectively increased the mean score of diet quality significantly among obese adolescents (p <0.05). Nutrition education using low energy density menu replica model can be part of the health program at school.
