Adipose tissue can release proinflammatory mediators, namely C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin 1β (IL-1β), and monocyte chemotactic protein 1 (MCP-1), contributing to vascular injury and insulin resistance (IR). Other mediators namely, adiponectin and nitric oxide (NO) are protective. We enrolled type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) obese male patients(More)
Adiponectin serum levels were significantly lower in obese diabetic than in non-obese healthy boys (P <0.001). Circulating soluble E-selectin levels was significantly higher in obese diabetic boys than the healthy non-obese (P <0.01). There were significant inverse correlations between adiponectin and sE-selectin, hsCRP, IL-1b, and MCP-1 and positively with(More)
Obesity is a chronic disease of multi factorial origin [1]. It’s now widely accepted that obesity is associated with many metabolic disorders including type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) [2]. The major link between obesity and T2DM is insulin resistance (IR). Adipose tissue depots are the most vulnerable target to mediate significant immune cells infiltration(More)
The comparative susceptibility of Biomphalaria snails from Gezira and Jebel Marra to S. mansoni (Gezira) was investigated. Groups of laboratory-bred snails from the two localities were exposed to 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 miracidia. The growth rate of the snails was followed over the experimental period by measuring the snails' shell size. Sub-groups of infected(More)
Appendicitis is a common presentation to an acute general surgical on call team. It can be a difficult diagnosis at times, particularly in sexually active young women, in whom it is often surgically challenging. This case is of a relatively straightforward diagnosis, taken for laparoscopic appendicectomy that resulted in performing an open right(More)
