Immunoinflammatory markers and disease activity in systemic lupus erythematosus: something old, something new
( 2010 )
Abstract

This study assessed the utility of some novel inflammatory markers compared with traditional laboratory markers in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus [SLE]. In a cohort of 43 SLE patients [19 with inactive and 24 with active SLE] and 20 healthy controls, serial measures of soluble vascular cell adhesion molecule [sVCAM-1] were significantly associated with SLE disease activity, scored using the British Isles Lupus Assessment Group index. Inflammatory markers neopterin and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule [sICAM-1] appeared to be clinically useful for isolated assessments of disease activity. Both antibodies to double-stranded DNA [antidsDNA] and sVCAM-1 were relatively good markers of disease activity and could help to predict remission or monitor the therapeutic response in SLE

Smokeless tobacco use in Pakistan and its association with oropharyngeal cancer
( 2010 )
Abstract

Smokeless tobacco [ST], wtclefy used in Pakistan, poses a high risk for oral cancer. Our hospital-based data illustrate that oropharyngeal cancer [9.9%] is the second leading malignancy after breast cancer [16.1%], and is significantly higher than in other Member States of the World Health Organization's Eastern Mediterranean Region. Urdu-speaking communities had a proportionately higher rate of oropharyngeal cancer [20.4%], followed by Balochis [19.9%], Sindhis [16.8%], Punjabis [11.7%] and Pashtuns [9.6%]. Association of oropharyngeal cancer with ST use was four times higher relative to no history of tobacco use after adjusting for age, ethnicity and gender. Our findings also show a predominance of this cancer among males relative to females and one-third of the reported cases occurred among individuals under 40 years. These findings have significant social impact, indicating the need for urgent intervention against the use of ST

Role of neutrophils in cutaneous leishmaniasis
( 2010 )
Abstract

Neutrophils are always present in the cytomorphologic process of leishmaniasis but their role is still not fully understood. Microscopic examination was done on smears from 56 cases of clinically diagnosed cutaneous leishmaniasis. Neutrophils were the predominant cells in the smear [>35% of the total cell count including neutrophils, macrophages and lymphocytes] in 7% of cases, a minority [10%-35% of total cells] in 36% of cases and rare [< 10% of total cells] in 57% of cases. Microscope images confirmed that neutrophils appeared to have an important role in leishmania elimination through phagocytosis of amastigotes in the later stages of the disease process
