OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of proteinuria on in-hospital severe adverse events and prognosis of the patients with heart failure(HF). METHODS: Clinical data of 520 patients with severe HF( NYHA 3-4 grades) in our department were analyzed retrospectively. Proteinuria was diagnosed on admission using the spot dipstick urinalysis. Clinical characteristics were compared between the patients with and without proteinuria. Univariate and multivariate Logistic regression analysis were used to evaluate the correlations of proteinuria with in-hospital adverse events and prognosis...

This is the clinical case of a primiparous eight month pregnant female, presenting with symptoms of pregnancy-induced acute haemolytic anaemia (haemolytic aneamia provoked by an immune mechanism, intra- and extra-erythrocyte defects, and HELLP syndrome were excluded). The anaemia progressed to become life-threatening for both the pregnant women and the foetus, which brought the following questions into consideration: diagnosis of anaemia during pregnancy; dosing of corticosteroid therapy; possibility of giving birth to a viable foetus and prognosis for next pregnancies...

AIMS: The skeletal manifestations of sickle cell disease are the result of changes in bone and bone marrow caused by chronic tissue hypoxia that is exacerbated by episodic occlusion of the microcirculation by the abnormal sickle cells. Furthermore, the occurrence of osteonecrosis is under the control of some modifier gene. BMP6 (Bone morphogenetic protein) has been reported as associated with osteonecrosis in sickle cell anemia (SCA). Herein, we intend to study the impact of rs267196, rs267201, rs408505 and rs449853 of BMP6 gene in the occurrence of osteonecrosis among sickle cell patients in Tunisia...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the prevalence of malaria helminth co-infections and their contribution for aneamia in febrile patients attending Azzezo health center, Gondar, Northwest Ethiopia. METHODS: A cross section study was conducted among febrile patients attending Azezo health center from February-March 30, 2011. Convenient sampling technique was used to select 384 individuals. Both capillary blood and stool were collected. Giemsa stained thick and thin blood film were prepared for identification of Plasmodium species and stool sample was examined by direct wet mount and formalin-ether concentration technique for detection of intestinal helminthes parasites...

Geophagia, eating of earth, is a relative frequent practice in several countries and especially in the African and South American mainlands. In some cases, migrant people continue this practice in the host country. Geophagia has some positive effects, presumed or real, and several harmful effects with significant health impacts. We relate the history of young patient of Cameroonian origin who consults for chonic fatigue, abdominal pain and menorrhagia. Laboratory tests show a severe aneamia with iron deficiency...

BACKGROUND: It has been demonstrated that the prognosis of the end-stage renal diseases have been changed after the introduction of dialysis modalities (haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis). Technical progress, have increased life duration of these patients; however, some health concerns persist to be frequent, such as physical alteration and psychological disturbances. AIM: This study aimed to evaluate the patients' quality of life of those who are treated by haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis in Kairouan Gouvernorate...

An immunological classification of chronic gastritis based on the detection of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) antibody, parietal cell antibody, intrinsic factor antibody, is reported. H. pylori chronic gastritis, slowly progresses to atrophic gastritis, in the majority of patients; in a few patients, with genetic susceptibility to form intrinsic factor antibody, it progresses to pernicious anaemia. In majority of patients of pernicious anaemia, H. pylori gradually disappears from the gastric mucosa, on development of intestinal metaplasia in them...

BACKGROUND: Iron deficiency is the commonest cause of nutritional anaemia in children worldwide particularly in developing countries. Infants and toddlers are prone to developing iron deficiency anaemia (IDA). This study was carried out to determine the prevalence of IDA and some factors associated with it in this group of children. STUDY DESIGN: Haemoglobin concentration and mean corpuscular volume (MCV) estimations carried out in 282 apparently well children aged 6-24 months...

The structure of the peptide-binding specificity of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I has been analyzed extensively in human and mouse. For fish, there are no crystallographic models of MHC molecules, neither are there data on the peptide-binding specificity. In this study, we describe for the first time the identification of a fish class I peptide-MHC ligand binding motif. Phage display technology using both 7 mer and 12 mer libraries enabled us to identify peptide ligands with unique specificity that interacts with the recombinant Salmon MHC class I molecule...

Chronic occupational exposure to benzene has been correlated with aplastic aneamia and acute myelogenous leukemia, however mechanisms behind benzene toxicity remain unknown. Interestingly, benzene-initiated hematotoxicity is absent in mice lacking the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) suggesting an imperative role for this receptor in benzene toxicities. This study investigated two potential roles for the AhR in benzene toxicity using hepa 1c1c7 wild type and AhR deficient cells. Considering that many toxic effects of AhR ligands are dependent on AhR activation, our first objective was to determine if benzene, hydroquinone (HQ) or benzoquinone (BQ) could activate the AhR...

Sleeping sickness (African Trypanosomasis) is an anthropozoonosis transmitted primarily by the tsetse fly. It is associated with a host of clinical indices ranging from fever, aneamia and anorexia to reproductive failures in man and his domestic animals. The main objective of this study is to appraise the responsiveness of the body weight as a clinical indicator of sleeping sickness in experimentally infected Yankasa ewes. Twelve mature Yankasa sheep (6 infected and 6 control ewes) were used in this study. Weekly body weights and daily rectal temperature were taken while blood samples for haematology were collected twice a week from all animals before and after the experimental infection...

From 1953 until May 1975 6553 patients with malignant tumours of the gastrointestinal-tract were operated on the University Hospital for Surgery in Minich, and in 43 cases (0,67%) a primary small bowel neoplasm was found. In the available literature we gathered a few more than 2000 cases it was possible to compare the data of symptoms and clinical findings with our results. We came to the following conclusion: 1. The main symptoms are abdominal pains in 71% in the literature (83% in our own cases), changing of peristaltic in 52% (33%), melena in 48% (62%), weight loss in 47% (67%), nausea and vomiting in 34% (22%)...

A total of 19 cases of chronic refractory anaemia underwent simultaneous in vivo erythrokinetic study and in vitro bone marrow culture. They were followed up clinically for at least 2 years. Good correlation has been found between erythrokinetic data (simultaneous quantitative and qualitative disorders of erythroblastic proliferation in preleukaemic states; pure qualitative disorders in primary sideroblastic anaemia) and the results of culture of granulocyte precursors in the bone marrow (small number of colonies, reduced size of colonies in preleukaemic states; normal number and growth in non malignant refractory anaemia)...
