Abstract

Background: The protective roles of vitamin C and total proteins in gingival inflammation were reported by severalstudies. The aim of this study was to measure the concentration of salivary vitamin C, total protein and their relationto gingival health among dental students.Materials and methods: The sample consisted of 67 dental students (33 males and 34 females) from College ofDentistry, University of Baghdad. Sillness and Löe (1964) was used for recording of dental plaque, while the gingivalindex (GI) was measured according to Löe and Sillness criteria (1963). Stimulated salivary samples were collectedand chemically analyzed in Poisoning Center/Surgical Specialty Hospital by using colorimetric method to measurethe salivary vitamin C and total protein. SPSS version 18 was used for analyzing data.Results: A higher percentage of dental students were found with mild type of gingivitis. Higher mean value of salivaryvitamin C was reported among dental students with mild type of gingival index compared to those with moderatetype, while the opposite picture was noticed for total protein, differences were statistically significant (P< 0.05).Conclusion: Significant associations between salivary vitamin C, total protein and gingivitis were found in the presentstudy. The protective rule of salivary vitamin C and total protein may offer a route to improve oral healthcare

Abstract

background: Several pathologies of the oral cavity have been associated with tension. The association between stress and the occurrence of oral disease is based on clinical observations, epidemiological research, and experiments with animals. Aim of study: The aim of this study was to identify the effect of acute tension on some salivary glands functions, and relationship the age with this tensionMaterials and Methods: Twenty three of students from AL-karama school of girls (age 7-12 year) and thirty undergraduate pharmacy females students (age 20-24 year) were participated in this study. They were asked to provide two samples of unstimulated whole saliva for 5 minutes, the first sample collected after a week end in the usual academic day as a control group, the second sample was collected after one month later in a first day of final examinations of a scholastic year. Total protein, albumin, uric acid and calcium levels in tow samples were assessed. Results & Discussion: The results showed a significant stress mediated decrease in the salivary calcium concentration (2.8813 mg/dl) in comparison with non-stressful condition (6.8020 mg/dl). and albumin concentration (1.608 g/dl were decreased by comparison with normal value (2.818 mg/ dl), while uric acid (6.874 mg/dl in sample under stress, 4.330 mg/dl in normal sample) and total protein concentrations (75.20 g/l for girl without stress, 107.15 g/l under stress) were elevated respectively all these result in age range (20–24year). While in age range (7 – 12 year) the result was as a follow:- for uric acid the value for sample under stress was highly than in normal condition (5.118 mg/dl while to sample without tension is 3.200 mg/dl). level of albumin is (2.195 g/dl to girl under stress and 4.388 g/dl in normal condition) that men there is a significant decrease in albumin level .also the result showed a significant decrease change in calcium level (2.6707mg/dl while in normal sample is 5.038 mg/dl) also we showed a significant elevation level in total protein (81.567g/l) comparison with normal sample (68.600 g/l) all these changes were statistically significant as we showed. Our search also compared between the age group and its relationship with acute tension. So, the level of uric acid in age (7-12 and 20 -24) are (5.118 mg/dl , 6.874 mg/dl) sequential ,while non-significant change in level of albumin in both age group in opposite to value of calcium and total protein we showed a highly level in age between (20- 24 year) in comparison with (7-12 year). Conclusion The results suggest that acute psychological stress exerts its effect on salivary composition and this will increase the value of saliva as dynamic biological fluid in controlling the oral health. Also this search suggest the effect of age to the composition of saliva.

Abstract

Pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) is a major pregnancy complication that causes pregnant women mortality. Here, we had scrutinized the correlation between serum levels of -hCG and biochemical parameters in PIH. Serum samples were collected from eighty Iraqi women (forty women with pregnancy-induced hypertension as patients group, twenty normotensive pregnant women as a positive control, and twenty normotensive non-pregnant women as a negative control) all groups were diagnosed clinically. All -hCG hormone level was measured for all studied groups, also serum uric acid, albumin, and total protein levels were measured as biochemical parameters. Data analysis showed that serum level of -hCG hormone was significant increase (p≤0.05) in PIH in compared to control groups. Also Uric acid level was increased significantly in PIH group in compared with control groups. While Albumin show there was no significant difference in PIH group. Total serum protein level was measured by Bradford total Protein assay all results was in normal value and showed a significant difference in PIH group in comparison to control groups. Our study shows that there is correlation between β-hCG with uric acid and albumin levels in PIH. Serial estimation of serum β-hCG, uric acid, and albumin can be important to use as a marker of disease and also can be used in better early management of established cases that lead to preeclampsia and eclampsia.

Abstract

Background and Objectives: Patients with chronic renal failure and diabetic nephropathy reveals biochemical changes .This study aim to investigate the differences of some impor-tant biochemical changes in these two groups of patients in comparison with normal con-trols.Methods: (80) patients were selected with different Renal disease complications. A control group of (30) healthy,18 males and 12 females were included in this study. Patients were divided into two groups the first group with chronic renal failure, include (40) patients,(25) male and (15) female ; the second group with diabetic �nephropathy , include ( 40) pa-tients,(25) male, and (15) female. Determination of the biochemical compound level as creatinine ,urea ,uric acid ,total protein (T.P) , albumin ,total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride(TG), low density lipo-protein (LDH-c) ,high density lipoprotein (HDL-c) , and LDL-c/HDL-c ratio.Results: Patients with chronic renal failure showed increasing levels of (creatinine, urea, -uric acid ) in their serum, and lower levels of (total protein, albumin). Mild increase in lev-els of (TC, LDL-c), while great increased level of triglyceride were recorded, also a great decline in the level of HDL-c was found, which indicate a high risk factor and moderate in-crease in (LDL-c/HDL-c) ratio .Patients with diabetic nephropathy showed slight increase in the levels of (creatinine, urea, uric acid ), however still lower than that in chronic renal fail-ure group. Also they showed decreased levels of (total protein, albumin) ,but still lower than in chronic renal failure and Increased level of ( TC,TG, LDL-C, LDL-c/HDL-c) which were greater than the increase in chronic renal failure .Also decrease in the level of HDL-c, but still less than that in chronic renal failure.Conclusions: Patients with chronic renal failure or with diabetic nephropathy showed sig-nificant increase in the levels of creatinine, urea, and uric acid; and decreased levels of al-bumin and total protein. Both group of patients showed variation in their cholesterol, LDL-c, triglyceride, and LDL/HDL-c ratio.

Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the effect of administration of depakene (valproic acid)(VPA) (15 mg/Kg of body weight, orally) on serum protein levels, including immune proteins, because its functions and the importance of these proteins in the body and they are overlapping, and that was by measured protein levels before and after treatment as concentrations of total protein (Tp), albumin and globulin in normal male rats and in rats that treated with VPA drug along the period of experiment (30) days. The results showed a significant decrease (P<0.05) in concentrations of total protein and albumin in comparison with normal control group, whereas did not observe significant differences (P<0.05) in globulin concentration compared with normal control group, despite of, there was a little decrease in globulin concentration in rats group that administrated the drug under study but non-significant. It could be concluded of the present study that the VPA drug have an greater side effects on concentration and function of proteins in serum, and subsequently, may extending these effects to comprise its effect on the immunity, osmotic pressure, blood volume, nutrients exchange between the blood and tissues, glomerular infiltration rate, transport many of materials and hormones, and several of physiological and biochemical functions which correlated with the serum proteins.

Abstract

A total of twenty eight local breed sheep and goats (14 of each) of both sexes were used in this study to evaluate the blood protein status. Animals were divided into four equal groups: involving G1 (7 ewes), G2 (7 rams), G3 (7 does), and G4 (7 bucks). Blood biochemical analysis included estimation of total protein, albumin and globulins were done. Results displayed that the levels of total proteins were (6.15 ± 0.32 g/dL), (6.28 ± 0.37 g/dL), (6.62 ± 0.31 g/dL) and (6.52 ± 0.12 g/dL) in G1, G2, G3 and G4 respectively. Levels of albumin were (3.84 ± 0.37 g/dL), (4.11 ± 0.36 g/dL), (3.52 ± 0.22 g/dL) and (4.30 ± 0.30 g/dL) in groups (1, 2, 3 and 4) respectively. Levels of globulins were (2.31± 0.47g/dL), (2.97 ± 0.47g/dL), (3.10± 0.46g/dL) and (2.22 ± 0.34g/dL) in groups 1, 2, 3 and 4 respectively. The results of blood proteins showed no significant differences between all groups of the study in regard to the sex.
