RESULTS Adnexal masses occurred in 0.15% of pregnancies. Average gestational age at diagnosis(More)
M-mode echocardiography, in combination with electrocardiography and phonocardiography, has been used to measure pulmonary capillary pressure as well as other cardiac functions. Serial hemodynamic evaluations by use of this technique were performed in seven healthy pregnant women in the recumbent position. Each patient had five studies: four antenatal(More)
The compound dichlorido-copper(II)-4-(2-5-bromobenzylideneamino)ethyl) piperazin-1-ium phenolate (CuLBS) was synthesized, characterized and screened for acute toxicity and protective activity against ethanol-induced gastric mucosal injury in rats. Gross microscopic lesions, biochemical and immunological parameters and histochemcial staining of glycogen(More)
BACKGROUND The current study was carried out to examine the gastroprotective effects of Parkia speciosa against ethanol-induced gastric mucosa injury in rats. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Sprague Dawley rats were separated into 7 groups. Groups 1-2 were orally challenged with carboxymethylcellulose (CMC); group 3 received 20 mg/kg omeprazole and groups(More)
To evaluate the anti-endothelial cell antibodies (AECA), anti-cardiolipin antibodies (aCL) and serum mannose-binding lectin (MBL) profiles of a large cohort of Yemeni patients with rheumatic heart disease (RHD) and to correlate these findings with clinical features of the disease. Patients (n = 140) were recruited from Al-Thawra Hospital in Sana'a, Yemen.(More)
Three new acetophenone dimers or Acronychia-type acetophenones, acropyrone (1), acropyranol A (2), and acropyranol B (3), were isolated from the trunk bark of Acronychia pedunculata and structurally characterized, together with four known acetophenone dimers, acrovestone (4), acrovestenol (5), acrofolione A (6), and acrofolione B (7), the acetophenone(More)
Nine cases of fetuses with pleural effusions are presented in which the diagnosis was made by ultrasound before the thirtieth week of gestation. A ratio of lung span to hemithorax diameter was calculated and ranged from 0.44 to 0.77 (mean 0.60). At autopsy, pulmonary hypoplasia was confirmed in all cases by criteria based on the ratio of lung weight to(More)
This article reviews the effects of alcohol on male and female gonads and hormonal levels; it further discusses the use of ethanol during pregnancy and its teratogenic effect on the fetus. Impotence is a common result of acute alcoholism, and testicular atrophy, infertility, and decreased libido are associated with alcoholism 70-80% of the time. In(More)
Eight neonates with meningomyelocele were delivered vaginally. Diagnosis of meningomyelocele was made by ultrasonography during the latter half of pregnancy in three patients. The remaining five did not have ultrasound examination during the antenatal period. None of the meningomyelocele sacs (less than or equal to 4 cm in diameter) was ruptured at the time(More)
Orthosiphon stamineus is considered an important traditional folk medicine. In this study ethanol and aqueous extracts of O. stamineus were evaluated in vitro for their antioxidant, antimicrobial as well as for their immunomodulatory properties on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). The DPPH radical scavenging method was used for the(More)
