A Cross-sectional Clinic-based Study Exploring whether Variants within Genes Coding for Enzymes of the Transmethylation and Trans-sulphuration Pathways Are Associated with Inter-individual Phenotypic Variation in Sickle Cell Anaemia in Jamaica

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.205
Pages: 
510–7
Synopsis: 
This cross-sectional study explored and generated novel and useable estimates of association between variants within genes underlying the transmethylation and trans-sulphuration pathways and inter-individual phenotypic variation in sickle cell anaemia (HbSS).

Radiological Abnormalities and Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in Patients with Sickle Cell Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.203
Pages: 
497–502
Synopsis: 
This study investigated the association of radiological abnormalities and asymptomatic bacteriuria in patients with sickle cell disease. No association was seen and there was no increased risk of symptomatic urinary tract infections in these patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) in sickle cell disease (SCD) in Jamaica is 5.3%. This study sought to determine the association between ASB and anatomical urological abnormalities and symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Effect of Hydroxyurea on Priapism in Men with Sickle Cell Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.326
Pages: 
518–20
Synopsis: 
This report represents a retrospective case series of males with sickle cell disease who have recurrent episodes of ischaemic priapism and were being treated with hydroxyurea for other indications. We evaluated the changes in priapism episodes in these patients.

Obstetric Outcomes of an Afro-Caribbean Cohort Following Universal Screening and Treatment of Subclinical Hypothyroidism

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.275
Pages: 
78–82
Synopsis: 
This paper reports on obstetric outcomes of subjects, diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism, who were treated with l-thyroxine, and seeks to determine if these outcomes were equivalent to those of euthyroid subjects.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Restoration of euthyroidism with l-thyroxine reportedly reduces obstetric complications associated with subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH). The objective was to determine if obstetric outcomes of treated subjects were equivalent to euthyroid subjects.

Clinical Factors Associated With Morbidity and Mortality in Patients Admitted with Sickle Cell Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.012
Pages: 
711–6
Synopsis: 
Sickle cell disease still carries a high morbidity and mortality in patients admitted to hospital. Recurrent admissions are a concern, as this impact on patient’s morbidity and quality of life.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the clinical factors associated with the length of hospitalization and mortality in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD).

Elements in Human Placentae in Jamaica

Issue: 
Pages: 
479–85
Synopsis: 
Fifty-two placentae of Jamaican mothers, with a mean age of 29 years, at term were collected. Samples were analysed using Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis for mercury and 9 other elements. Data were correlated with several parameters collected at delivery and by questionnaire data.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To investigate the relationships, if any, between elemental content of the placenta with age of mother, birthweight and the Apgar scores of a neonate.
