Prevalence Of Scabies And Head Lice Among Children In A Welfare Home In Pulau Pinang, Malaysia, Jamaiah Ibrahim 2009 University of Malaya

Prevalence Of Scabies And Head Lice Among Children In A Welfare Home In Pulau Pinang, Malaysia, Jamaiah Ibrahim

Jamaiah Ibrahim

This is a survey of 120 children for scabies and head lice infestations in a welfare home in Pulau Pinang. Children from this welfare home (Rumah Kanak-Kanak Taman Bakti, Kepala Batas, Pulau Pinang) were randomly selected. Majority of them were Malays (72.5%) and the rest were Indians. The infestation rates were highest in the 10-12 years age group with 46% and 70% for scabies and head lice respectively. Head lice was more commonly seen in girls (65%) than boys (29%). Scabies was more commonly seen in boys (50%) than girls (16%). Overall prevalence rate for scabies was 31% and ...


Ganaxolone Suppression Of Behavioral And Electrographic Seizures In The Mouse Amygdala Kindling Model, Doodipala S. Reddy, Michael A. Rogawski 2009 University of California - Davis

Ganaxolone Suppression Of Behavioral And Electrographic Seizures In The Mouse Amygdala Kindling Model, Doodipala S. Reddy, Michael A. Rogawski

Michael A. Rogawski

Ganaxolone (3alpha-hydroxy-3alpha-methyl-5alpha-pregnan-20-one), a synthetic analog of the endogenous neurosteroid allopregnanolone and a positive allosteric modulator of GABA-A receptors, may represent a new treatment approach for epilepsy. Here we demonstrate that pretreatment with ganaxolone (1.25—20 mg/kg, s.c.) causes a dose-dependent suppression of behavioral and electrographic seizures in fully amygdala-kindled female mice, with nearly complete seizure protection at the highest dose tested. The ED50 for suppression of behavioral seizures was 6.6 mg/kg. The seizure suppression produced by ganaxolone was comparable to that of clonazepam (ED50, 0.1 mg/kg, s.c.). To the extent that amygdala ...

Authors’ And Editors’ Perspectives On Peer Review Quality In Three Scholarly Nursing Journals, Mona Shattell, Peggy Chinn, Sandra Thomas, W. Richard Cowling

Mona Shattell

Purpose: This study examined the quality of peer review in three scholarly nursing journals from the perspectives of authors and editors. Specifically, the study examined the extent to which manuscript reviews provided constructive guidance for authors to further develop their work for publication, and for editors to make informed and sound decisions on the disposition of manuscripts.

Methods: Corresponding authors who had submitted manuscripts to the study journals in 2005-2007 were invited via email to complete an online survey about the quality of the peer review process; 320 authors responded. In addition, one-third of the reviews of manuscripts submitted in ...


Thermo-Mechanical Stress In Multilayered Dental Post Due To Temperature Gradient, Ahmed A. Madfa 2009 Department of Conservative Dentistry, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Thamar, Thamar, Yemen

Thermo-Mechanical Stress In Multilayered Dental Post Due To Temperature Gradient, Ahmed A. Madfa

Ahmed A. Madfa

Objective: To analyse thermo-mechanical stress in endodontically treated teeth restored with Multilayered Structured Dental Posts (MSDPs) under cold and hot conditions using Finite Element Analysis (FEM). Methods: Three MSDPs of multilayer design of xTi-yHA composition added to a zirconia layer (model A), an alumina layer (model B) and a titanium layer (model C) were compared with zirconia (model D) and titanium (model E) posts. The fractions of Ti and HA was varied gradually. Changes in temperature of an endodontically restored tooth model were calculated as a result of hot and cold response. The resulting thermo-mechanical stresses were analysed and compared ...

The Modified Ncep Atp Iii Criteria Maybe Better Than The Idf Criteria In Diagnosing Metabolic Syndrome Among Malays In Kuala Lumpur, Moy Foong Ming, Awang Bulgiba Awang Mahmud 2009 Department of Social and Preventive Medicine, Faculty of Medicine Building, University of Malaya, 50603 Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA

The Modified Ncep Atp Iii Criteria Maybe Better Than The Idf Criteria In Diagnosing Metabolic Syndrome Among Malays In Kuala Lumpur, Moy Foong Ming, Awang Bulgiba Awang Mahmud

Moy Foong Ming

Background. Metabolic Syndrome is associated with increased risk for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. However, different diagnostic criteria have been recommended by different expert groups. In Malaysia, there is a lack of research comparing these different diagnostic criteria. Therefore, it is our aim to study the concordance between the IDF and the modified NCEP ATP III definitions of Metabolic Syndrome among a Malay cohort in Kuala Lumpur; and to demonstrate if all participants have the same cardiometabolic risks. Methods. This was an analytical cross sectional study. Ethics approval was obtained and informed consent was given by all participants. Anthropometric ...

Nutrient Analysis Of Varying Socioeconomic Status Home Food Environments In New Jersey State, Scott D. Schefske, Cara L. Cuite, Anne C. Bellows, Carol Byrd-Bredbenner, Teresa Vivar, Holly Rapport, William K. Hallman

Anne Bellows

Home food inventories of Oaxacan Mexican-American and African-American families of low-socioeconomic status living in an urban area in New Jersey with at least one child under the age of 12 were conducted using Universal Product Code scanning. The African-American and Oaxacan household food supplies were compared with a sample of White households, also with at least one child under the age of 12, not of low-socioeconomic status. Nutrient Adequacy Ratios for total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, total carbohydrate, sugar, dietary fiber, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron were used to quantify the adequacy of household food supplies ...


Student & Faculty Satisfaction With A Pedagogical Framework, Vincent L. Salyers, Lorraine Carter, Penelope Barrett, Lynda Williams 2009 Laurentian University

Student & Faculty Satisfaction With A Pedagogical Framework, Vincent L. Salyers, Lorraine Carter, Penelope Barrett, Lynda Williams

Dr. Vincent L Salyers

Most schools of nursing utilize technology to deliver courses, and entire curricula, through a combination of face to face (f2f), web-enhanced, and fully online strategies. Challenges associated with course delivery may include geographic and technological barriers, lack of instructional design support, inconsistent, inadequate or unreliable support infrastructure, and varying degrees of faculty and student experiences with learning management systems. The purpose of this exploratory study was to evaluate student and faculty satisfaction with two courses structured using a pedagogical framework; identify advantages and disadvantages of the courses; and identify instructional design recommendations for implementation of the framework. Based on results ...


Acute Oral Toxicity And Brine Shrimp Lethality Of Elaeis Guineensis Jacq., (Oil Palm Leaf) Methanol Extract, lau yee ling 2009 University of Malaya

Acute Oral Toxicity And Brine Shrimp Lethality Of Elaeis Guineensis Jacq., (Oil Palm Leaf) Methanol Extract, Lau Yee Ling

lau yee ling

Elaeis guineensis (Arecaceae) is widely used in West African traditional medicine for treating various ailments. An evaluation on the toxicity of extracts of this plant is crucial to support the therapeutic claims. The acute oral toxicity and brine shrimp lethality of a methanolic extract of this plant was tested. Oral administration of crude extract at the highest dose of 5,000 mg/kg resulted in no mortalities or evidence of adverse effects, implying that E. guineensis is nontoxic. Normal behavioral pattern, clinical signs and histology of vital organs confirm this evidence. The E. guineensis extracts screened for toxicity against brine ...

A Bootstrap-Anfis Framework For Oral Cancer Prognosis Based On Clinical And Genomic Markers, Chang S. W., Sameem A. K., Rosnah Binti Zain, Merican A. F. M. A. 2009 University of Malaya

A Bootstrap-Anfis Framework For Oral Cancer Prognosis Based On Clinical And Genomic Markers, Chang S. W., Sameem A. K., Rosnah Binti Zain, Merican A. F. M. A.

Prof. Dr. Rosnah Binti Zain

The incidence of oral cancer is high in Malaysia especially for those of Indian ethnic origin. In this research, an oral cancer prognosis prediction model will be developed by using Bootstrap-ANFIS techniques. The aim of this research is to improve the prediction of oral cancer survival and to identify the key clinical and genomic markers for the survival prediction of oral cancer. The proposed model is designed to handle small medical dataset with limitations in terms of time, cost and tissue samples.
