We interviewed a representative sample of 6103 Omani households and blood samples from 6342 children aged 0-5 years were collected. About 27% of Omani males had inherited glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency [‎compared with 11% of females]‎ while countrywide prevalence rates for the sickle-cell and beta-thalassaemia traits were estimated to be 5.8% and ...
    • A comparison of graduates of an innovative medical school and a conventional school in relation to primary health care 

      Abdel Aziz, Farouk; Malik, Malik Bashir (‎1997)‎

The aim was to identify the impact of a community-oriented medical education. The results showed that both groups were aware of PHC but those of the innovative school had received practical training in PHC centres, had skills to approach solving community problems, and gave due emphasis to promotional and preventive aspects of patient management. The study concludes ...

The current syllabus was designed to provide students with Arabic language skills with particular reference to scientific language. The students' opinions differed regarding their understanding of clinical medicine and their interaction ...
    • A diagnostic clinical genetic study of craniofacial dysmorphism 

      Farag, H.M. (‎1999)‎
      A diagnostic evaluation of craniofacial anomalies, either isolated or as part of a genetic syndrome was conducted on 25 patients [‎8 females, 17 males]‎, age range 2 months to 47 years. Complete genetic examination, pedigree analysis, anthropometric measurements and radiological studies were carried out. Cytogenetic studies included fluorescence in situ hybridization [‎FISH]‎ when indicated. In all, 15 patients had chromosomal abnormalities. Five patients had unbalanced chromosome rearrangements and six had chromosome markers. Three patients were ...

      In Chaharborj, a village in north-eastern of the Islamic Republic of Iran, a high prevalence of congenital blindness [‎1.1%]‎ has been reported. The clinical findings have not been fully described. We therefore assessed the clinical aspects of this condition in a case series of 20 congenially blind patients and 24 of their parents. All patients had been blind since birth. There was anterior segment dysgenesis and retinal non-attachment in all patients. There were no systemic anomalies. Histopathologically, there was iridocorneal adhesion, normal ...
    • A genetic epidemiological study of malformations at birth in Egypt 

      Temtamy, S.A. (‎1998)‎
      A total of 3000 consecutive neonates delivered in a maternity hospital in Giza, Egypt, were subjected to full clinical and genetic evaluation. Social data included parental consanguinity and social class. The prevalence of malformations in the 3000 hospital live births and stillbirths was 3.17%. Malformed neonates [‎95]‎ were classified into 13 groups according to the system affected using World Health Organization classification of congenital malformations. The most common anomalies were: central nervous system [‎29.5%]‎, musculoskeletal system ...

      Behdjat, H.; Rifkin, S.B.; Tarin, E.; Sheikh, M.R. (‎2009)‎
      An action research project was carried out by a team from the National Public Health Management Centre in Tabriz, Iran to test the following hypothesis: Health Volunteers are more able to support health improvements by focusing on community participation and empowerment through facilitating communities to define and solve their own problems than by only providing information on health problems. Training on participatory approaches was given to Women Health Volunteers [‎WHV]‎ in a pilot area. The results gave evidence that local people could identify ...
    • A panel of eight tests in the serodiagnosis and immunological evaluation of acute brucellosis 

      Dabdoob, W.A.; Abdulla, Z.A. (‎2000)‎
      A panel of eight tests was used to study 200 cases of acute brucellosis, 200 patients negative for brucella as a control group and 200 apparently healthy individuals as a second control group. The best diagnostic test was the rose Bengal test using an imported reagent [‎BioM‚rieux, France]‎ and 2 local reagents. This test was improved from being a screening test to be a titrable one. The best two tests used together were the tube agglutination test with Coomb-like test. The indirect fluorescent antibody test had no advantages over the use of other ...

    • A retrospective audit of electroconvulsive therapy at King Khalid University Hospital, Saudi Arabia 

      Alhamad, A.M.; Al Haidar, F. (‎1999)‎
      The case records of patients receiving ECT at King Khalid University Hospital over a 10-year period were reviewed for all aspects of ethical and technical administration of ECT. The audit of 127 patients showed some deficiencies in the early years: no seizure monitoring, no training or education for staff [‎particularly psychiatrists and anaesthetists]‎, and the use of atropine as a premedication for all patients. Recently, regular education and staff training have been organized and seizure timing regularly monitored. Use of an ECT machine with ...
    • A retrospective hospital study of human cystic echinococcosis in Egypt 

      Kand eel, A.; Ahmed, E.S.; Helmy, H.; El Setouhy, M.; Craig, P.S.; Ramzy, R.M.R. (‎2004)‎
      We performed a retrospective study to determine annual clinical incidence of human cystic echinococcosis [‎CE]‎ in 14 Egyptian hospitals between January 1997 and December 1999. From 492 353 records examined, 133 [‎0.027%]‎ new human CE cases were recorded. Of these, 50 [‎37.6%]‎ were from Alexandria and Matrouh hospitals, 33 [‎24.8%]‎ from Giza Chest Hospital and 50 from other regions. Matrouh governorate had the highest annual clinical incidence [‎1.34-2.60 per 100 000]‎ followed by Giza governorate [‎0.80-1.16 per 100 000]‎. About a third of those affected ...
    • A review of EPI progress in Pakistan towards achieving coverage targets: present situation and the way forward 

      Hasan, Q.; Bosan, A.H.; Bile, K.M. (‎2010)‎
      Pakistan's Expanded Programme on Immunization [‎EPI]‎ performance has a significant impact on global and regional immunization indicators such as poliomyelitis eradication, maternal and neonatal tetanus and measles elimination. Despite significant efforts by the Government and partners, Pakistan's immunization indicators have not met the expected benchmarks. Barriers to achieving immunization goals are related to limited access to immunization services, lack of parent awareness and weak management. With sustained Government commitment, predictable ...
