To determine the prevalence of lower genital tract infection (LGTI) with Candida spp, Trichomonas vaginalis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Chlamydia trachomatis, and bacterial vaginosis among symptomatic and asymptomatic women attending maternal and child health and family planning (MCH/FP) clinics in Hanoi, Vietnam. A multi-centered, cross-sectional descriptive(More)
Abstract This chapter will introduce the geographical conditions and economic characteristics of Central Vietnam. It proceeds to analyse the general economic development in the region, particularly since the introduction of economic reforms in the early 1990s. Both foreign investment and exports have risen dramatically, turning Vietnam into a major exporter(More)
In this paper, we consider gradient estimates on complete noncompact Riemannian manifolds (M, g) for the following general heat equation ut = ∆V u+ au log u+ bu where a is a constant and b is a differentiable function defined onM×[0,∞). We suppose that the Bakry-Émery curvature and the N -dimensional Bakry-Émery curvature are bounded from below,(More)
Patients and methods From 2007 to 2013, 30 children with primary hyperlipidemia were recruited and were treated with diet and/or lipid-lowering drug therapy at the National Hospital of Pediatrics, Hanoi, Vietnam. Clinical symptoms and biochemical finding, outcome of treatment were studied. Results: Among 30 cases from 28 families, 8 patients were mixed(More)
Maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 5 (MODY5), a type of dominantly inherited diabetes mellitus and nephropathy, has been associated with mutations of the hepatocyte nuclear factor-1 (HNF-1b) gene, mostly generating truncated protein. Various phenotypes are related to HNF-1b mutations. Our aim to describe clinical and genetic findings in the(More)
LCH is the rare disease involving clonal proliferation of Langerhans cells, abnormal cells deriving from bone marrow and capable of migrating from skin to lymph nodes. The clinical presentation of LCH may occur in multiple organs: bone, skin, lymph nodes or pituitary gland, but clinical presentation of LCH rarely occurs in multiple endocrine systems. We(More)
Insulin (INS) gene mutations that cause permanent neonatal diabetes mellitus change single protein building blocks (amino acids) in the protein sequence. These mutations are believed to disrupt the cleavage of the proinsulin chain or the binding of the A and B chains to form insulin, leading to impaired blood sugar control. At least 10 mutations in the INS(More)
Results Eye complication was seen in 23.5% of patients. Renal complication was seen in 22.2% of patients. 13.6% of patients had both kinds of complication. The longer duration of DM 1 the patients had, the more eye and renal complication was detected. In groups with eye and renal complication, HbA1c was significantly higher than that in groups without(More)
Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) is the most common specific cause of 46,XY disorder in sex development. The androgen signaling pathway is complex but so far, the only gene linked with AIS is the androgen receptor (AR). Mutations in the AR are found in most subjects with complete AIS but in partial AIS, the rate has varied 28–73%, depending on the case(More)
Deficiency of 21-hydroxylase (21-OHD) is present in 90–95% cases of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), an autosomal recessive disorder. CAH affects severely on the physical development and reproductive function. In monitoring the disease and evaluating treatment outcome, presentation of salt wasting, electrolyte disturbance, androgenism, cushingoid(More)
