  • Diagnosing oral squamous cell carcinoma using salivary biomarkers

    • Authors: Mohammad Sayedur Rahman Khan, Fatama Siddika, Sun Xu, Xiao Lin Liu, Mei Shuang, Hao Fu Liang
      Pages: 1 - 10
      Abstract: Oral cancer is becoming frightful public health issue because of its raising incidence as well as mortality rates worldwide. Out of all types of oral cancer, the oral squamous cell carcinoma is the most common malignant tumor with an incidence of about 90%. This fatal disease is diagnosed through a comprehensive clinical examination followed by the histological assessments forming the diagnostic gold standard. Although the oral cavity is simply accessible, but maximum oral cancers are usually diagnosed at the late stage. Consequently, it is necessary to implicate newer screening and early diagnosing approaches which will diminish the morbidity as well as mortality related to this disease. Saliva which is a complex biological fluid has a direct relation with the oral cancer lesion and contains abnormal DNA, RNA, protein molecules released by the malignant cells. These can be labelled as neoplastic biomarkers proposed to play an important role in diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic purposes for oral cancers as well as other diseases. The aim of this review paper is to concisely discuss the different types of potential salivary biomarkers as well as their interaction for screening of oral cancers.

  • Folic acid, vitamin B12 and homocysteine levels following olanzapine
           administration in schizophrenia patients

    • Authors: Fahmida Hasnat, Zesmin F. Dewan, Mir Misbahuddin, Nargis Akhter, Jhunu Shamsunnahar, Habiba Akhter Bhuiyan
      Pages: 11 - 16
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess the levels of folic acid, vitamin B12 and homocysteine in the serum of schizophrenia patients (n=20) and to evaluate the effect of olanzapine on these biomarkers. The blood was also collected from the 10 healthy volunteers as control. Compared to control, the serum folic acid (p=0.005) and vitamin B12 levels (p=0.211) were higher in the schizophrenia patients, whereas no difference was evident in the serum homocysteine level. But significantly higher levels of serum folic acid (p=0.005), vitamin B12 (p=0.047) and significantly lower level of serum homocysteine (p=0.000) were observed after 10 weeks of olanzapine administration. BPRS score was reduced significantly after intervention. The Pearson correlation coefficient test showed a statistically not significant negative relationship between the serum folate, vitamin B12 and homocysteine levels. In conclusion, olanzapine can significantly elevate the  serum folic acid and vitamin B12 levels whereas it can lower the serum homocysteine level which may contribute to the improvement of symptoms of schizophrenia.

  • A comparative study of atorvastatin and rosuvastatin on lipid lowering
           efficacy in hyperlipidemic patients

    • Authors: Samia Haque Tonu, Zesmin Fauzia Dewan, Nargis Akhter, Sajal Krishna Banerjee
      Pages: 17 - 20
      Abstract: The aim of the present study was to compare the lipid lowering effect of atorvastatin and rosuvastatin in patients (n=52) with hyperlipidemia. Patients were assigned to atorvastatin 10 mg or rosuvastatin 5 mg daily for 8 weeks. The blood was collected at baseline and after intervention to measure serum lipid profile. The level of serum total cholesterol in both atorvastatin and rosuvastatin groups was significantly reduced after intervention (p<0.00001 and p<0.00001 respectively) but no statistically significant difference (p=0.503) was observed between the two statin-treated groups. The reduction of serum triglyceride level was also significant (p=0.046 in atorvastatin group and p=0.0006 in rosuvastatin group). No significant difference was observed between the two groups (p=0.312). The serum LDL-C level was reduced significantly in both atorvastatin group (p<0.00001) and rosuvastatin group (p<0.00001). Again no statistically significant difference (p= 0.749) was observed between the two groups. No significant change was observed in the serum HDL level. Intergroup difference was not significant (p= 0.721). The present study indicates that, both atorvastatin and rosuvastatin improve the lipid profile but no significant change was observed between the two groups.

  • Wide local resection of sacral chordoma through posterior midline approach

    • Authors: Md. Anowarul Islam, Dipendra Mishra, Santosh Batajoo, Manish Shrestha
      Pages: 21 - 24
      Abstract: This study was performed in 21 patients with sacral chordoma from July 2008 to June 2017 and posterior surgical approach was used for resection. Out of 21 patients, 12 had done subtotal sacrectomy and the remaining 9 had done partial sacrectomy. Their follow-up periods were at least five years. Operative time ranged between two to four hours. All patients recovered well from operation and two to five units of blood transfusion were needed for each. After operation, majority of the patients developed some bowel and bladder dysfunction and five patients developed wound infection. During the follow-up, two patients had tumor recurrence and one patient expired two years after operation. The remaining 18 patients were tumor-free at the 5-years follow-up. Wide surgical resection via the posterior midline approach could be a good management plan for the sacral chordoma. However, complete removal with surgical margin varies according to the location of the tumor.

  • Antimicrobial resistance of bacterial pathogens in a Neonatal Intensive
           Care Unit

    • Authors: Farzana Ahmed, Aftab Yousuf Raj, Lutfun Nahar, Zahidul Hasan
      Pages: 25 - 28
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to identify the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern and relevant treatment options in a neonatal intensive care unit from January 2012 and June 2016. Out of the total 78 culture positive samples, Gram positive and Gram negative microorganisms were 26% and 74% respectively. Acinetobacter remained the predominant isolate (32.1%) followed by Klebsiella species (18.0%). Most of the Gram positive isolates exhibited higher resistance to penicillin, cephalosporin, macrolides, gentamycin and quinolones. Gram positive isolates had sensitivity of 100% to linezolid, vancomycin, chloramphenicol followed by rifampicin (84%). In comparison to other commonly used antibiotics, sensitivity to these four medicines was statistically significant (p<0.05). Similarly, most of the Gram negative bacteria showed resistance to cephalosporin, aminoglycosides. About two-third cases showed resistant to meropenum, quinolones and combination preparation of piperacillin and tazobactam. Overall sensitivity among the Gram negative isolates was to polymixin B (100%) and minocycline (97%), followed by colistin (83%). In comparison to other commonly used antibiotics, sensitivity to these three medicines was statistically significant (p<0.05).

  • Clinical evaluation of bulk-fill composite resin and layered composite
           resin restoration in class I cavity of permanent molar teeth

    • Authors: Mohammad Fida Hasan Talukder, Mozammal Hossain, Mohammad Ali Asgor Moral
      Pages: 29 - 33
      Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to compare the clinical performance of bulk-fill composite resin with that of layered composite resin restorations in occlusal class I cavity of permanent molar teeth. This study includes a total of 104 teeth having class I cavity of 3-4 mm depth in the occlusal surface. They were restored either with layered composite resin or bulk-fill composite resin of 52 teeth in each group. To observe the retention, marginal adaptation and color match, all restorations were assessed by using modified United States Public Health Services (USPHS) and Ryge’s criteria at baseline, 3, 6 and 12 months. The results of 12 months observation showed that retention of 38 layered composite and 48 bulk-fill composite resin restorations revealed alpha rating, which was statistically significant. The marginal adaptation of 37 layered composite resin and 47 bulk-fill composite resin restorations also demonstrated alpha rating and the differences between two groups were statistically significant. However, there were no significant differences between the layered composite resin and bulk-fill composite resin restorations in respect to color match. It can be concluded that bulk-fill composite resin showed better clinical outcome than that of layered composite resin in the restorations of occlusal class I cavity.

  • Integrity test of lead apron and its effect on personnel and carers

    • Authors: Omojola Akintayo Daniel, Isiodu Chinonye Xaviera
      Pages: 34 - 37
      Abstract: The use of lead apron is known to protect radiation workers and carers (patient relatives) from the scatter radiation. The study intends to assess the integrity of lead apron by checking for defects and to estimate the mean dose rate to personnel and carers and also to compare the percentage mean absorbance of the apron with the related studies. Ten lead aprons were used involving three vendors. A fluoroscopy unit, floor mounted X-ray unit, survey meter, lead aprons and meter rule were used. Crack and tear were identified with some areas close to the critical organ site. Eighty percent of the aprons showed signs that they were defective. Correlation of the lead aprons mean age and the total number of defective lead aprons were not significant (p=0.866). The mean thickness of the aprons for the three brands affected the percentage absorbance (p<0.001). The mean dose rate was above 20 mSv recommended for radiation workers averaged over a single year. It is recommended that the defective apron close to the critical organ be replaced and those in areas distal from the critical organs be further evaluated using the rejection criteria test before they are replaced.

    • Authors: Azhar Shya Y. Albsaysi
      Pages: 38 - 40
      Abstract: The research was aimed to know the effect of aqueous and alcoholic extracts of Allium porrum on some hematological parameters of rats. This study used 35 rats and the males divided into groups. These groups are administrated by different concentrations (200, 400, and 800) mg/kg from each extract daily for one week to study the parameters of hematological parameters compared to control group. The treatment with A. porrum extracts led to increasing RBC and P.C.V. for all extract concentrations and to both kinds. The aqueous extract 800 mg kg-1 were more significant than the other levels. A significant increase in hemoglobin concentration for aqueous extract 800 mg/kg and 400 mg/kg and alcoholic extract 800 mg/kg and alcoholic extract 800 mg/kg were more significant than the other levels and a significant decrease in WBC number for alcoholic extract 400 mg/kg compared to control group.

  • Correlation of CA-125 with different stages of endometriosis

    • Authors: Runa Laila, Begum Nasrin, Shayela Shamim, Md. Mozammel Hoque
      Pages: 41 - 44
      Abstract: This study was conducted to evaluate the association of serum cancer antigen (CA-125) level with the severity of pelvic endometriosis. Seventy diagnosed cases of pelvic endometriosis were included in this study. The CA-125 level was estimated in all these patients, cutoff value of the serum CA-125 level was considered 35.0 U/mL. The correlations between serum CA-125 and different stages of endometriosis were evaluated by linear regression analysis. In Stage I of endometriosis, the mean serum CA-125 level was 21.8 ± 15.1 U/mL, in Stage II 26.0 ± 17.3 U/mL, in Stage III 83.2 ± 48.9 U/mL and in Stage IV 117.0 ± 41.6 U/mL. A significant positive correlation (r=0.729; p=0.001) was found between the serum CA-125 and different stages of endometriosis.

      Pages: 45 - 48
      Abstract: Review of the radiological and clinical outcomes of the correction of idiopathic scoliosis by convex  rod rotation were done in this prospective interventional study. Axial translation technique with pedicle screw-rod was used for correction of scoliosis. 35 patients (10 males, 25 females) were studied on the basis of clinical and radiological outcomes with a mean age of 14.8 years and follow-up a period of 32.5 months. Placement of screws was more on the concavity, around apical region and instrumentation at all level were not mandatory. Radiological evaluation was done pre-operatively and at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months postoperatively by whole spine standing AP, lateral radiographs and yearly thereafter. Spinal balance was noted, measurement of Cobb's angles, SRS questionnaire for clinical evaluation and complications were all documented. The study result shows three-dimensional deformity of spine can be corrected effectively with simple rod rotation with pedicle screw instrumentation by axial translation technique.

  • Redo mitral valve surgery

    • Authors: Redoy Ranjan, Mushfiqur Rahman, Heemel Saha, Sanjoy Kumar Saha, Asit Baran Adhikary
      Pages: 89 - 93
      Abstract: This study is based on the findings of a single surgeon’s practice of mitral valve replacement of 167 patients from April 2005 to June 2017 who developed symptomatic mitral restenosis after closed or open mitral commisurotomy. Both clinical and color doppler echocardiographic data of peri-operative and six months follow-up period were evaluated and compared to assess the early outcome of the redo mitral valve surgery. With male-female ratio of 1: 2.2 and after a duration of 6 to 22 years symptom free interval between the redo procedures, the selected patients with mitral valve restenosis undergone valve replacement with either mechanical valve in 62% cases and also tissue valve in 38% cases. Particular emphasis was given to separate the adhered pericardium from the heart completely to ameliorate base to apex and global contraction of the heart. Besides favorable post-operative clinical outcome, the echocardiographic findings were also encouraging as there was statistically significant increase in the mitral valve area and ejection fraction with significant decrease in the left atrial diameter, pressure gradient across the mitral valve and pulmonary artery systolic pressure. Therefore, in case of inevitable mitral restenosis after closed or open commisurotomy, mitral valve replacement is a promising treatment modality.

  • Early outcome of mitral valve replacement through right anterolateral
           thoracotomy versus standard median sternotomy

    • Authors: Heemel Saha, Redoy Ranjan, Dipannita Adhikary, Jubayer Ahmed, Sanjoy Kumar Saha, Asit Baran Adhikary
      Pages: 94 - 98
      Abstract: This study was aimed to compare the peri-operative outcomes among the mitral valve replace-ment using anterolateral thoracotomy (n=17) and standard median sternotomy (n=17) in a single surgeons practice. The mean age was 24.1 ± 5.3 years in Group I and 41.0 ± 11.5 years in Group II. Female was predominant in Group I. Total operative time and bypass time were significant in both the study groups. Incision scar was not visible in females in Group I but full incision scar was visible in Group II in sitting posture. In Group I patients, majority (52.9%) patients needed short duration of ICU stay in comparison to Group II, and the difference was statistically significant (p<0.05) between the two groups. During discharge, 94.1% wound was well healed in Group I and 70.6% in Group II. Wound dehiscence was nil in Group I, but 23.5% patients developed dehiscence in Group II. However, only 5.9% patient developed unstable sternum in Group II. Cosmetic mitral valve replacement can be done safely through anterolateral thoracotomy and it is cost effective especially for the developing countries.

  • Association of serum vitamin D3 with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes

    • Authors: Taznuva Anwar, Md. Matiur Rahman, Forhadul Hoque Mollah, Subrata Kumar Biswas
      Pages: 99 - 101
      Abstract: Vitamin D has an important role and supposed to be a risk factor in the development of pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes mellitus by affecting either insulin sensitivity or β-cell function, or both. The present study was conducted to evaluate the relation of serum vitamin D3  and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Total 80 individuals were enrolled in this study. Forty newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic individual were enrolled as cases and 40 healthy glucose tolerant subjects were enrolled as controls. Serum vitamin D3 was measured by chemiluminescence microparticle immunoassay. Fasting and 2 hours plasma glucose level were measured by hexokinase method using the Dimension clinical chemistry system. The mean serum vitamin D3 level was significantly low in type 2 diabetes mellitus than in controls (p= 0,007). The individual with vitamin D3 deficiency showed 3.4 times higher chances to develop type 2 diabetes mellitus compare to the individual with normal vitamin D status. Correlation test showed significant (r= -0.351) negative correlation (p=0.026)  between serum vitamin D3 and type 2 diabetes mellitus. It can be concluded that vitamin D3 deficiency is related to type 2 diabetes mellitus.
