Antibacterial Resistance and Trend of Urinary Tract Pathogens to Commonly Used Antibiotics in Kashmir Valley

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.013
Pages: 
703–7
Synopsis: 
This study evaluated the increasing trend in antibiotic resistance pattern of uropathogens in Kashmir Valley, India. Escherichia coli was the most prevalent isolate. First generation cephalosporins were ineffective while aminoglycosides and third generation cephalosporins were effective antibiotics. Vancomycin was highly effective against E faecalis and Staphylococcus aureus.

Prevalence of Helicobacter pylori Infection in Children in The Bahamas

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.154
Pages: 
698–702
Synopsis: 
Helicobacter pylori infection is a common chronic infection in children. We report, for the first time, prevalence data for this infection in Bahamian children. H pylori infection was determined using the 13Curea breath test.

A Fifty-year Review of Soft Tissue Sarcomas in Jamaica: 1958–2007

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.168
Pages: 
692–7
Synopsis: 
A high proportion of soft tissue sarcomas in Jamaica are unclassified and the anatomical distribution of common classified sarcomas shows some differences with the literature. Limited access to immunohistochemistry/ molecular diagnostics and increasing core biopsy diagnosis may contribute to these phenomena.

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2012.167
Pages: 
684–91
Synopsis: 
Comparison of the Bantu and Benin haplotypes in Ugandan and Jamaican patients with homozygous sickle cell disease reveal some clinical and haemato-logical differences. Better documentation is needed to derive optimal models of care for Ugandan patients.

Anthropometry and Blood Pressure Changes in a Caribbean Adolescent Population of African Ancestry: An Evaluation of Longitudinal Data Using a Multilevel Mixed Regression Approach

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2012.002
Pages: 
674–83
Synopsis: 
The effect of anthropometry on longitudinal blood pressure changes was evaluated and compared to similar estimates generated from cross-sectional data from the same population. Findings suggest that anthropometry is an important covariate of blood pressure changes during adolescence and that age-related mean blood pressure changes from longitudinal data were similar to those generated by cross-sectional data.

Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of growth pattern on blood pressure changes in an adolescent population of African ancestry based on longitudinal data and to compare this with estimates derived from cross-sectional data.

Using Receiver Operating Characteristic Curve Analysis in Detecting Excess Adiposity in 9–13-year Old South African Children

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2012.108
Pages: 
670–3
Synopsis: 
This study confirmed that log10 SF4:BMI (subcutaneous to overall fat) at conventional cut-off points had a relatively high sensitivity and specificity in detecting excess adiposity, and therefore could be used to identify excess adiposity in South African children.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Little is known concerning the applicability of receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis in detecting excess adiposity in preadolescent South African children. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of body mass index (BMI) and skinfold thickness:BMI (subcutaneous to overall fat) in detecting excess adiposity in preadolescent urban South African school children.

Extracellular Superoxide Dismutase, a Potential Extracellular Biomarker Candidate for Prolactinoma

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2012.213
Pages: 
665–9
Synopsis: 
Extracellular superoxide dismutase (EC-SOD) is an extracellular protein and serum EC-SOD could be a good candidate for the diagnosis of prolactinoma. There is a positive relationship between prolactinoma severity and EC-SOD.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To investigate whether the extracellular superoxide dismutase (EC-SOD) and manganese superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD) level changes during prolactinoma (PRL) development.

Hepatocyte Antigen Expression in Subtypes of Intestinal Metaplasia of the Stomach

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2012.007
Pages: 
659–64
Synopsis: 
Results of the present study suggest that, in the stomach, hepatocyte antigen expression is a sensitive marker of intestinal metaplasia and the evaluation of the distribution of hepatocyte antigen expression might be useful in the classification of intestinal metaplasia.
