There is a discrepancy in the literature as to whether fasting during Ramadan affects athletic performance. We suggest in this letter that the time frame for training is a confounding variable that has been missed in the literature.

BACKGROUND: Stress is a common work-related problem worldwide. Railway workers are predominantly stressed due to their rigid protocols and limited rest opportunities. This study aimed to determine the level of, and factors associated with, stress among railway workers in Malaysia. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted among all 729 railway workers employed at Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) in eight states in Malaysia via a postal survey. The self-administered questionnaire consisted of socio-demographic characteristics and the validated Malay version of Perceived Stress Scale-10 (PSS-10)...

OBJECTIVES: To compare the safety and efficacy of bipolar transurethral plasma vaporisation (B-TUVP) as an alternative to the 'gold standard' monopolar transurethral resection of the prostate (M-TURP) for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in a prospective randomised controlled study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In all, 82 patients indicated for prostatectomy were assigned to two groups, group I (40 patients) underwent B-TUVP and group II (42 patients) underwent M-TURP...

Platelets are the chief effector cells in hemostasis. However, recent evidence suggests they have multiple roles in host defense against infection. Reports by us and others showed that platelets functionally contribute to protection against Staphylococcus aureus infection. In the current study, the capacity of mouse platelets to participate in host defense against S. aureus infection was determined by assessing two possibilities. First, we determined the ability of platelets to kill S. aureus directly; and, second, we tested the possibility that platelets enhance macrophage phagocytosis and intracellular killing of S...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to determine agreement among vascular neurology fellows and faculty in treating patients with acute ischemic stroke with intravenous tissue-type plasminogen activator and intra-arterial thrombectomy (IAT). METHODS: Patients were evaluated simultaneously by at least 2 vascular neurology. Agreement was determined using kappa (κ) and intraclass correlation coefficients. RESULTS: In 60 patients, agreement was substantial for tissue-type plasminogen activator (κ=0...

AIM: The risks of fasting during Ramadan in patients with adrenal insufficiency are unknown. The aims of this study were to evaluate these risks in such patients, to determine the risk factors and finally to set some recommendations. METHODS: It is a cross-sectional study about 180 patients with known and treated adrenal insufficiency. The patients responded to a 14-item questionnaire concerning their knowledge about the disease and fasting during the last month of Ramadan...

Heart failure (HF) has high morbidity and mortality in children. This study aimed to investigate the value of cardiac myosin binding protein-C (cMyBP-C) as a diagnostic and prognostic biomarker in children with heart failure. This study was a prospective case-control study that involved 50 children with acute HF and 25 healthy children of matched age and sex as a control group. cMyBP-C plasma levels were measured in patients with HF at the time of admission and 1 month after treatment. Echocardiographic assessment was done for all children...

The cytotoxicity of DNA-protein crosslinks (DPCs) is largely ascribed to their ability to block the progression of DNA replication. DPCs frequently occur in cells, either as a consequence of metabolism or exogenous agents, but the mechanism of DPC repair is not completely understood. Here, we characterize SPRTN as a specialized DNA-dependent and DNA replication-coupled metalloprotease for DPC repair. SPRTN cleaves various DNA binding substrates during S-phase progression and thus protects proliferative cells from DPC toxicity...

RIASSUNTO. La multietnicità̀ porta gli operatori sanitari a dover acquisire nuovi strumenti di carattere linguistico, culturale e sociale al fine di rispondere ai bisogni di una così variegata utenza dei servizi sanitari. La causa della compresenza di diverse culture nel nostro Paese è da ricondurre ai flussi immigratori degli ultimi anni. La convivenza di individui di diversa etnia nel nostro territorio nazionale costringe i sanitari a considerare problemi antropologici, morali, religiosi e politici sottesi a popoli e culture lontane dalla nostra...

Religious practices and cultural customs related to eating habits have a significant impact on lifestyle and health of the community. The Ramadan fasting in Muslims and its influence on various metabolic parameters such as diabetes have been reasonably studied. However, literature related to Hindu religious customs related to fasting and food patterns during various festivals and its effect on diabetes are scarce. This article is an attempt to describe the Hindu religious customs related to fasting and food practices from the State of Tamil Nadu (South India) and to raise the awareness among physicians about its relationship with diabetes which may help in managing their diabetic patients in a better way...

Dexketoprofen trometamol (DT), a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, is a highly water-soluble salt and active enantiomer of rac-ketoprofen. Its parenteral form is commonly used for acute pain management in emergency departments of our country. Side effects such as diarrhea, indigestion, nausea, stomach pain, and vomiting may be seen after the use of DT. Anaphylactic shock (AS) secondary to infusion of DT is very rare and, to our knowledge, it is the first case report describing this side effect. This case report was presented to emphasize that AS may be seen after the use of DT...

OBJECTIVE: Cardiogenic shock (CS) may occur during pregnancy and dramatically worsen peripartum outcomes. METHODS: We analyzed the National Inpatient Sample from 2002 to 2013 to describe the incidence of, risk factors for and outcomes of CS during pregnancy. RESULTS: Of the 53,794,192 hospitalizations analyzed, 2044 were complicated by CS. The mortality rate in peripartum women with CS was 18.81% versus 0.02% without. It occurs more often during postpartum (58...

Health professional entry-to-practice programmes are intense, competitive and prolonged. The aims of this study were to benchmark the health of health sciences students at Kuwait University, thereby informing student health services, and to establish a base for individual student's health assessments throughout the programmes. We used a convenience sample of 176 students. Assessment included a health/wellness questionnaire (smoking, nutrition, physical activity, sleep and stress) and objective measures (resting heart rate, blood pressure, waist-to-hip ratio and random blood glucose)...
