Maternal Dietary Quality and Socio-demographic Status and their Association with Food Insecurity in the St. George Region of Trinidad and Tobago

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.048
Synopsis: 
This exploratory study sought to understand the relationship between food insecurity, socio-demographic status (SDS) and diet quality in a sample of pregnant mothers in Trinidad As households tended towards severe food insecurity, their SDS decreased; overall diet quality was not statistically significant with food security status in this sample, neither was multigravidity statistically significant with higher diet quality.

ABSTRACT

Objective: This exploratory study sought to understand the relationship between food insecurity, socio-demographic status (SDS) and diet quality in a sample of pregnant mothers in Trinidad.

Role of Interleukin-6, Gamma Interferon and Adenosine Deaminase Markers in Management of Pleural Effusion Patients

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.253
Synopsis: 
Interleukin-6, gamma interferon (IFN-γ) and adenosine deaminase (ADA) were investigated as diagnostic tools in pleural effusion. Our results suggest that there is a remarkable difference in production of these three markers in exudative pleural effusions as compared to transudative pleural effusions. However, diagnosis based on culture would be still the gold standard.

Detection and Characterization of Metallo-β-lactamases in Pseudomonas aeruginosa by Phenotypic and Molecular Methods from Clinical Samples in a Tertiary Care Hospital

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.183
Pages: 
778–83
Synopsis: 
The present study confirms the dissemination of metallo- β-lactamase (MBL) genes among multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Early recognition of MBL producers is important and necessitates rigorous infection control measures and restricted use of carbapenems for treatment of clinical infections. The dissemination of this gene to clinically relevant species may endanger patients and it may have adverse implications on treatment.
