Abstract

Background: Zinc is involved in a variety of
metabolic processes and it has a well known
antioxidant activity, so the measurement of its serum
level can have a special value in several diseases.
Objectives: The study is designed to determine the
serum zinc level in heart failure patients and to
compare it with that of healthy individuals and to
study the significance of the results obtained.
Methods: Atomic absorption spectrometer
technique was used to determine serum zinc level in
fifty heart failure patients and fifty healthy individuals
who were age and sex matched.
Results: The mean serum zinc level in healthy
individuals was about 45.5% greater than that of heart
failure patients. This difference was statistically
significant.
Conclusion: The reduced serum zinc level in heart
failure patients could be an acceptable risk factor for
the development and/or deterioration of heart failure
and therefore its correction might have a positive
effect on management and prognosis of such patients.
Key words: Zinc, antioxidants, heart failure.

Abstract

ABSTRACT:BACKGROUND:Circulating immune complexes (CICs) were found to have an effect on the pathogenesis and prognosis of ischemic heart disease (IHD).METHODS:A total of 24 patients, 13 as a patient group with IHD (10 males and 3 females), and 11 healthy control group (6males and 5 females), for all the level of CICs was detected by platelets aggregation test (1).RESULTS:The results showed that all patients with IHD had positive platelets test, while only 4control group had a positive results.CONCLUSION:This study showed that there was significant raise in the level of CICs in the IHD and it might play a role in it’s development.

Abstract

This study detects the presence of cholesterol in an Iraqi plant named Suaeda baccata Forsk of the family Chenopodiacae, wildly and widely grown in Iraq. The absence of any publication concerning the sterol content of this Suaeda specie, and the industrial importance of cholesterol depending on its role as a precursor in the synthesis of some hormones, like progesterone, acquired this study its value. The investigations revealed the presence of cholesterol that was proved by TLC together with the standard compound cholesterol, and anisaldehyde spray reagent using three different solvent systems, then authenticated by HPLC, in which the retention time of both the standard cholesterol and the plant extract cholesterol were identical.

هذه الدراسة تختص بالكشف عن مادة الكولستيرول في نبات عراقي مسمى بـSuaeda baccata (Chenopodiaceae) الذي ينموبريا و بشكل واسع في العراق .ان عدم وجود اي مجلة علمية او دورية تتناول المحتوى الستيرويدي لهاذا الصنف من النبات وأهمية الكولستيرول للصناعة الدوائية بكونة المادة الابتدائية لتصنيع بعض الهرمونات مثل البروجستيرون ,يبين قيمة هذة الدراسة. بينت التجارب البحثية وجود مادة الكولستيرول والذي اكد بواسطة استخدام تقنية كروماتوغرافيا الطبقة الرقيقة TLC بواسطة ثلاثة أنواع من المحاليل الناقلة .كما تم إجراء الفحص التأكيدي لمادة الكولستيرول في المستخلص النباتي بواسطةHPLC والذي طابق الكولستيرول القياسي.

Abstract

ABSTRACT :BACKGROUND:A total of 63 terminal untreatable stage IV head and neck cancer patients were investigated for clinicalresponses and presence of autoantibodies to various tissue antigens before and during S2- compleximmunotherapy.METHODS:S2 –complex is a new low molecular weight biological response modifier (BRM) with a potantimmunostimulating and anti tumor activities.RESULTS:Autoantibodies detected at pretreatment period were those directed towards the following antigens :nuclear, thyroid microsomal, epithelial cells, gastric parietal cells, smooth muscles, peripheralleukocytes, T-lymphocytes, B-lymphocytes, monocytes, thymus reticular epithelial cells and Hassall’scorpuscles. Beside, autoantibodies with specificities to glomerular basement membrane and vascularendothelial cells were present at low incidence. Short term use of S2- complex induced a transientincrease of the following autoantibodies: nuclear, thyroid microsomal, epithelial, parietal cells, smoothmuscle, thymus reticuloepithelial cells, Hassal’s corpuscles, thymocytes, peripheral blood leukocytes,T, B-lymphocytes, monocytes, as well as kidney glomerular basement membrane and vasculrendothelial cells.DISCUSSION:In the later follow up period i.e. 2-6 months most of these autoantibodies responses returned to normalhealthy control levels. Moreover, two exceptions were demonstrated which were the incidences of theantiglomerular basement membrane and vascular endothelial antibodies which remianed higher than thepretreatment frequencies. In addition, autoantibodies specific to mitochondria , thyroglobulin and redblood cells were only occasionally seen in our head and neck cancer patients both before and during S2-complex therapy.

Abstract

Transport calculations of photon and neutron fluxes and doses were made. The Monte Carlo multigroup experimental transport code MORSE-CG [1] was used for these calculations with its modified version [2].Distributions of gamma ray fluxes through the shield of a pressurized water reactor were obtained. The shield was represented by layers of water, steel and lead; it was a semi realistic representation of a working reactor.A simulation was made for the total dose that could be received by a person living near a very active radiating source of neutrons or photons. The obtained results were compared with experimental referenced data which shows a very good agreement.

تم حساب الفيض والجرع الاشعاعية لانتقال الفوتونات0 تم استخدام البرنامج الحسابي MORSE [1] الذي يعتمد على طريقة مونتي كارلو في الحسابات وباستخدام نسخة معدلة للبرنامج [2]. تم حساب توزيع فيض اشعة كاما خلال الدرع الواقي لمفاعل ضغط مائي.وتم تمثيل الدرع بشكل طبقات متتالية من الماء والفولاذ والرصاص. وقد كان التمثيل نمذجه شبه حقيقية لمفاعل موجود في العمل حالياً. تم عمل نمذجه لحساب الجرع الاشعاعية التي من الممكن لشخص معين يعيش بالقرب من مصدر اشعاعي نشيط للفوتونات او النيوترونات ان يتعرض لها. تم مقارنة النتائج المستحصلة مع نتائج عملية موثقة وكان التطابق جيد جداً.
