FLT3 (fms-related tyrosine kinase 3) is a receptor tyrosine kinase class III that is expressed on by early hematopoietic progenitor cells and plays an important role in hematopoietic stem cell proliferation, differentiation and survival. FLT3 is also expressed on leukemia blasts in most cases of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In order to determine the(More)
BACKGROUND Nowadays, Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) represents an escalating worldwide public health problem. Providing consistent data on the magnitude and risk factors of CVDs among young population will help in controlling the risks and avoiding their consequences. OBJECTIVE The objective was to estimate the prevalence of risk factors of Coronary Heart(More)
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD, EC deficiency is caused by one or more mutations in the G6PD gene on chromosome X. An association between enzyme levels and gene haplotypes remains to be established. In this study, we determined G6PD enzyme levels and sequenced the coding region, including the intron-exon boundaries, in a group of(More)
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD), a common human enzymatic defects characterized by extreme molecular and biochemical heterogeneity is found to have a variable frequency in different regions. The molecular basis of polymorphic variants in Saudi Arabia have yet to be fully addressed to. Accordingly, a study was designed to determine the(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee is a degenerative joint disease caused by the progressive reduction of the articular cartilage surface that leads to reduced joint function. Cartilage degeneration occurs through gradual loss in extracellular matrix components including type II collagen and proteoglycan. Due to limited inherent self repair capacity of the(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is to determine the clinico-pathological features of primary gastrointestinal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (GI NHL) at King Abdulaziz University Hospital, Jeddah, and to compare our results to those reported in the literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-three adult patients with primary GI NHL diagnosed over a 5-year period(More)
BACKGROUND Benign neutropenia often presents in certain populations without any genotype nor phenotype. Middle East countries are among the regions where endemic cases of chronic benign neutropenia are reported in the general population with an incidence of approximately between 10-15%. Not many studies have been performed to ascertain the cause or burden(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association between autoimmune thrombocytopenia with other autoimmune disorders, to show if they are different autoimmune diseases or one disease with different presentations at the same time, and to study the effect of treatment on platelet count in different thyroid condition. METHODS In this retrospective study, we included(More)
The chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms (CMPN) are a group of clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorders in which large numbers of red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets grow and spread excess in the bone marrow and the peripheral blood. Cytogenetic analysis of the t(9;22) and molecular detection of BCR/ABL is the main diagnostic criteria in(More)
