MicroRNAs (miRNAs), critical biomarkers of acute and chronic diseases, play key regulatory roles in many biological processes. As a result, robust assay platforms to enable an accurate and efficient detection of low-level miRNAs in complex biological samples are of great significance. In this work, a label-free and direct hybridization assay using molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) field-effect transistor (FET) biosensor has been developed for ultrasensitive detection of miRNA-155 as a breast cancer biomarker in human serum and cell-line samples...

Background/aim: Blood transfusion is associated with immunosuppression, referred to as transfusion-related immunomodulation (TRIM). In this study, for the first time, changes in the concentration of TGF-ß and TNF-α were measured postoperatively in orthopedic patients with intraoperational allogeneic red blood cell transfusion. Considering the use of packed cell units with different ages, it is possible to suggest the more appropriate product for clinical applications.Materials and methods: Two groups of 35 orthopedic surgery patients (with or without transfusion as case and control groups, respectively) were involved...

Background: Genetic factors like single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) may play an important role in the etiology of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Mutations in Toll like receptor 9 (TLR9) and myeloid differentiation primary response 88 (MYD88) genes may lead to an abnormal immune response that may cause greater cell proliferation and thus alter an individual’s susceptibility to haematological malignancies including CLL. Objective: This work was designed to study any association of the TLR9 (rs2066807C/G and rs187084T/C) and MYD88 (L265P) single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) with risk of CLL in Egyptians...

Background and Objectives: EQUIATM is a new gastrointestinal (GI) system with high compressive strength, surface microhardness (MH), and fluoride release potential. This in vitro study aimed to assess the effect of aging and type of protective coating on the MH of EQUIATM GI cement. Materials and Methods: A total of 30 disc-shaped specimens measuring 9 mm in diameter and 2 mm in thickness were fabricated of EQUIATM GI and divided into three groups of G-Coat nanofilled coating (a), no coating (b) and margin bond (c)...

OBJECTIVES: Accurate data on the epidemiology of stroke in Egypt is scarce. The aim of this review is to address this issue based on available community-based studies and compare the resulting findings to those of other regional and international studies. METHOD: A systematic literature search was conducted to identify population-based epidemiological studies of stroke in Egyptians. Original articles published in English between 1990 and 2016 were included. Five studies from 5 different governorates in southern Egypt fulfilled the study criteria (Qena, Sohag, Assiut, New Valley and Red Sea)...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Acute stroke treatment has significantly improved over the years in Egypt. However, there is often notable delay in pre-hospital and in-hospital management of acute stroke patients. The delay may be largely attributed to poor stroke knowledge and awareness of the general public and this study was aimed at the evaluation of the abovementioned factors. METHODS: Descriptive cross-sectional study involving 1154 participants from 4 governorates using a questionnaire in Arabic, collecting sociodemographic data, participants' risk factors, and knowledge and stroke awareness (risk factors, symptoms, prevention, treatment and prognosis, action in response to acute stroke)...

The aim of this study was to examine the potential utility of a self-paced saccadic eye movement as a marker of post-concussion syndrome (PCS) and monitoring the recovery from PCS. Fifty-nine persistently symptomatic participants with at least two concussions performed the self-paced saccade (SPS) task. We evaluated the relationships between the number of SPSs and (i) number of self-reported concussion symptoms, and (ii) integrity of major WM tracts (as measured by fractional anisotropy [FA], and mean diffusivity [MD]) that are directly or indirectly involved in saccadic eye movements and often affected by concussion...

Background: Families of patients are faced with stressors in the intensive care unit (ICU) that cannot be controlled sometimes. Having hope is one of the strategies for obtaining self-control in patients' families, which deals with such situations. Objective: The purpose of this study was to design and validate a questionnaire of hope for family members of patients hospitalized in intensive care units. Methods: This study was conducted for family members of patients hospitalized in the intensive care units of Kurdistan and Tehran provinces, in Iran, between the years 2015-2016...

INTRODUCTION: Access surgery is delivered by vascular/transplant surgeons with a division that is defined by historic practice. This has resulted in an inconsistent training pattern. We aimed to design a focused, modular training program (The Brighton Vascular Access Fellowship) providing trainees with a reproducible level of exposure and competence. METHODS: The programme was 16 days over 8 weeks on a one-to-one basis with candidates expected to be performing procedures as first surgeon with ongoing, formative assessment...

The efficiency of interferon beta (IFNβ)-based drugs is considerably limited due to their undesirable properties, especially high immunogenicity. In this study, for the first time we investigated the impact of a computationally designed peptide mimetic of IFNβ, called MSPEP27, in the animal model of MS. A peptide library was constructed using the Rosetta program based on the predominant IFNAR1-binding site of IFNβ. Molecular docking studies were carried out using ClusPro and HADDOCK tools. The GROMACS package was subsequently used for molecular dynamics (MD) simulations...

We study mechanically exfoliated nanosheets of franckeite by quantitative optical microscopy. The analysis of transmission-mode and epi-illumination-mode optical microscopy images provides a rapid method to estimate the thickness of the exfoliated flakes at first glance. A quantitative analysis of the optical contrast spectra by means of micro-reflectance allows one to determine the refractive index of franckeite over a broad range of the visible spectrum through a fit of the acquired spectra to a model based on the Fresnel law...

Background: The prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a high priority in aesthetic surgery. Abdominoplasty is the aesthetic procedure most commonly associated with VTE, yet the mechanisms for the development of VTE associated with this procedure are unclear. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to analyze the incidence and predictors of VTE in patients undergoing abdominoplasty procedures in outpatient surgery centers using data from the Internet Based Quality Assurance Program (IBQAP)...

There has not been much progress in the development of transcatheter tricuspid valves to treat tricuspid regurgitation because of the difficulty in anchoring a stented valve onto the complex tricuspid annulus. Hence, the concept of heterotopic implantation of the transcatheter tricuspid valve onto the cavo-atrial junction was proposed. However, to date there has been no detailed in vitro investigation of the hemodynamic performance of this new device. The study utilises both 2-D and 3-D particle image velocimetry (PIV) to interrogate the flow patterns in the vicinity of the extra-cardiac tricuspid valves in an in vitro physiological flow loop, specifically at four measurement locations in the cavo-atrial anatomy...

BACKGROUND: Recent data pose the question whether conservative management of chronic kidney disease (CKD) by means of a low-protein diet can be a safe and effective means to avoid or defer transition to dialysis therapy without causing protein-energy wasting or cachexia. We aimed to systematically review and meta-analyse the controlled clinical trials with adequate participants in each trial, providing rigorous contemporary evidence of the impact of a low-protein diet in the management of uraemia and its complications in patients with CKD...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship between spiritual well-being (meaning/peace, and faith) and depression among Jordanian patients receiving hemodialysis. METHODS: Cross-sectional descriptive correlation design was used to carry out on a nationally representative convenience sample of 158 patients receiving hemodialysis at five different hospitals in Jordan. RESULTS: The mean total score of the depression was 17...
