Bacterial Sensitivity Pattern To Antibiotics In Acne Vulgaris At Universitas Sumatera Utara Hospital Medan, Indonesia In 2019, Lovena Sari, Nelva Karmila Jusuf, Imam Budi Putra

Journal of General - Procedural Dermatology & Venereology Indonesia

Background: The association between psoriasis and metabolic syndrome is appealing as the two may share a similar cross-linking systemic inflammation process. The inflammation processes occurring in obesity and psoriasis may aggravate one another. This raised the question of whether a low-calorie diet would possibly reverse the aforementioned process. This study aims to determine whether calorie restriction reduces psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) in obese patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis receiving conventional treatment compared to no calorie restriction.
Methods: We searched Pubmed/Pubmed Central, ScienceDirect, Cochrane library, EBSCOhost, and Scopus databases using keywords derived from our clinical question. The inclusion …

The Vaginal Microbiota, Indah Kencana, Satya Wydya Yenny 2022 Dermatology and Venereology Department, Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Andalas, Padang, Indonesia

The Vaginal Microbiota, Indah Kencana, Satya Wydya Yenny

Journal of General - Procedural Dermatology & Venereology Indonesia

The vagina is an ecosystem consisting of various species of microorganisms (microbiota) that play important role in maintaining vaginal health. The vaginal ecosystem includes a variety of species classified into aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms which are vaginal microbiota (VMB). In the vagina of a healthy woman, 70% of normal microbiota is dominated by the Lactobacillus species. Lactobacillus is a Gram-positive, anaerobic bacterium, and belongs to the group of lactic acid bacteria (LAB). LAB produces lactic acid which plays a role in maintaining vaginal acidity at pH

The Relationship Between Increased Body Mass Index With Transepidermal Water Loss: A Comparative Study, Muhammad Yurizar Yudhistira, Arie Kusumawardani, Suci Widhiati, Nurachmat Mulianto

Journal of General - Procedural Dermatology & Venereology Indonesia

Background: Obesity affect significant populations on all ages. The relationship between obesity and metabolic diseases is known but a dermatological link is rarely explained. Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) is one of the measurement tools used to define the skin’s barrier function by measuring the amount of water that evaporates through the skin in aspecific amount of time. Although several studies on TEWL are available but discussion about the correlation between TEWL and body mass index (BMI) is still limited. This study aims to evaluate the correlation between TEWL and BMI.
Methods: This research is a single-center study with …

Recent Progress In Immunotherapy For Skin Cancer, Fadhli Aulia Mughni, Rinadewi Astriningrum, Aida Sd Hoemardani, Kusmarinah Bramono, Adhimukti T. Sampurna, Agassi Suseno Sutarjo

Journal of General - Procedural Dermatology & Venereology Indonesia

Skin cancer is a global health concern due to its growing incidence and high mortality rate. The most common therapeutic modalities in skin cancer include surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. However, those therapies do not specifically target cancer cells and may damage healthy tissues. Cancer induces immune response by releasing soluble antigens and danger signals caused by tumor cellular stress or death, while the immune system continuously monitor and control malignant proliferation through cancer immunoediting. Therefore, targeting this mechanism is a promising approach to manage cancer, especially those unresponsive to conventional therapies. Immunotherapy is a specific therapy that manipulates the immune …

Student Engagement And Performance Assessment As Associated With Three Types Of Integument System Laboratory Activities, Sophie Deoliveira

Honors Theses

Students participating in anatomy education, specifically an Anatomy and Physiology classroom, have shown difficulty in learning and retaining information on the various systems of the body. This study sought to assess the benefits of different learning activities associated with student engagement and performance on subsequent examinations regarding the integumentary system. For this study, three different hands-on laboratory activities (i.e., treatments) were given during different laboratory sessions. These hands-on activities included labeling a three-dimensional model, illustrating a model, or building a model of the integumentary system using materials provided. Students then completed a post-laboratory questionnaire regarding their enjoyment of their particular …

Core Point Pixel-Level Localization By Fingerprint Features In Spatial Domain, Xueyi Ye, Yuzhong Shen, Maosheng Zeng, Yirui Liu, Huahua Chen, Zhijing Zhao 2022 Old Dominion University

Core Point Pixel-Level Localization By Fingerprint Features In Spatial Domain, Xueyi Ye, Yuzhong Shen, Maosheng Zeng, Yirui Liu, Huahua Chen, Zhijing Zhao

Computational Modeling & Simulation Engineering Faculty Publications

Singular point detection is a primary step in fingerprint recognition, especially for fingerprint alignment and classification. But in present there are still some problems and challenges such as more false-positive singular points or inaccurate reference point localization. This paper proposes an accurate core point localization method based on spatial domain features of fingerprint images from a completely different viewpoint to improve the fingerprint core point displacement problem of singular point detection. The method first defines new fingerprint features, called furcation and confluence, to represent specific ridge/valley distribution in a core point area, and uses them to extract the innermost Curve …

Plasma Malondialdehyde Levels Related To Acne Vulgaris Severity, Fitri Puspita, Nelva Karmila Jusuf, Ariyati Yosi

Journal of General - Procedural Dermatology & Venereology Indonesia

Background: Acne vulgaris (AV) is a multifactorial disorder characterized by the formation of open and closed comedones, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. Oxidative stress plays a role in the pathogenesis of AV. Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), especially lipid peroxides (LPO), plays a role in mediating acne inflammation. Malondialdehyde (MDA) is one of the byproducts of LPO commonly used as a biomarker of cell damage.
Methods: This cross-sectional analytic study consisted of sixty patients with AV. The samples were taken from the blood plasma of AV subjects. An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) examination was performed. The normality of data …
