      Abstract: Aims: To report an unusual case of herpes zoster meningoencephalitis in an immunocompetent patient exposed to HIV/AIDS. Presentation of Case: The present report deals with an immunocompetent patient who was diagnosed with meningoencephalitis caused by Herpes Zoster, an opportunistic infection that presented complications. Discussion: Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is a pathogenic human herpes virus that causes chickenpox as a primary infection, after which it becomes latent in the peripheral ganglia. Later, the virus can be reactivated spontaneously or after a series of triggers to cause herpes zoster. Chickenpox and its complications are more severe in immunosuppressed patients. Conclusion: An unusual case of varicella-zoster meningoencephalitis in an immunocompetent patient that deserves to be shared with colleagues.

  • A Comprehensive Outline of the Gulf Nations' Cosmetics Review and
           Approval Process: GSO Standards

    • Authors: G. Ramya Shree, M. P. Venkatesh, P. Subhash Chandra Bose
      Pages: 7 - 16
      Abstract: The GCC is an economic and political union of six countries: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE. The council's main office is in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. To ensure that cosmetic products are safe, the Gulf Cooperation Council Standardization Organization (GSO) recently recommended GSO 1943: 2015, "Safe Cosmetics and Personal Care Products." The GCC Standardization Organization, a comparable agency, can develop standards that apply to everybody. The product must have entire pork and detachable flesh, be devoid of any unclean or rotting construction, and be safe for human and environmental health. Cosmetics are tightly controlled in GCC nations, following EU guidelines. Before items are utilized by customers, they must be registered and meet all safety criteria. This has led to the formation of GCC cosmetic standards. The Gulf Cooperation Council cosmetics legislation closely follows the EU Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009. However, it has some of its own criteria when it comes to processes, ingredients, labelling and claims.

  • Appraisal of Practice and Some Socio-Economic Factors on the Utilization
           of Family Planning Methods in Nigeria

    • Authors: J. A. Ademuyiwa, A. A. Adetunji
      Pages: 17 - 32
      Abstract: Background: Family planning has the potential to minimize maternal mortality by lowering the number of unplanned pregnancies, and abortions. This study assesses the practice across different zones in Nigeria. Aim: With a view to identify deterrence factors, the research is aimed at appraising the practice in some selected localities in the country Method: A structured questionnaire was designed and used to collect relevant information from respondents in a state from each of the six geo-political zones in Nigeria. Hierarchical sampling technique is used to select a locality in each of the six geopolitical zones in the states that were studied. Logistic regression is used to assess effect of bivariate response variables on the covariates. Results: More than 90% of respondents are aware of different family planning methods but only 26.2% have utilized contraception. Personal opposition was found to be the most frequent reason for non-utilization of family planning in the six geo-political zones. The oddsof utilization is highest in the North-Central and least in the South-East. North-Central is more than four times more likely to utilize contraceptives when compared with those from the South-West. Wealthy people who mostly reside in urban centers are also found to be more knowledgeable and utilize contraception more. As educational attainment increases, both utilization of contraception and knowledge of family planning methods also increase.
