Abstract

Background: Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is considered the most potent angiogenic growth factor for the stimulation of collateral vessel growth in peripheral and myocardial ischemia and other coronary heart disease. Aim: The aim of the present study was first to assess the levels of VEGF in adult subjects with hypertension, second to find any correlation between VEGF and other studied biochemical markers. Patients & Methods: Thirty four adults with hypertension (age mean 34.55 ± 3.79 year) from outpatients of Al-yarmook Teaching Hospitals in Baghdad were selected randomly from March to April 2015. For comparison, (30) normotensive subjects which were matching to patients in age and BMI. VEGF levels were measured. Results: Biochemical parameters include FBG, HDL, and cholesterol, TG, HbA1c and PCV. Anthropometric measurements were also recorded. VEGF significantly higher (p ˂ 0.05) in patients group when compared to healthy group, as well as, significant elevation also shown in FPS, HDL and HbA1c, while TG, cholesterol, Creatinine and PCV not affected. Conclusion: VEGF can be used as diagnostic marker for the hypertension in adult patients.

Abstract

Background: The NBT consist from two tetrazole molecules consider as the oxidative substance. The quantitative NBT test under standard conditions the leucocyte readiness is brooded together with NBT under standard conditions and declining of the color quantitated after extraction into pyridine is exceptionally valuable in the analysis by Spectro-photometry Entamoeba histolytica parasite induces apoptosis in host cells by for step(first)adherence to the host cell surface, (second) contact-subordinate cell killing, (third) start of phagocytosis so NBT used to determine percentage of phagocytosis for Entamoeba. Methods: This study was performed on 80 male they were divided to 25 control subjects and 55 subjects were diagnosed to be infected by Entamoeba histolytica at urban and rural areas in wassit province. Entamoeba histolytica and NBT were evaluated. Results: The results showed a significant difference between the two groups (10.96±2.745) for control group and 19.63±3.617 in patients' group with confidence interval (7.056-10.29). P.value P<0.001 ratio minimum number was 7%, 13% for the control and patient groups. Conclusion: There were a significant increase in phagocytic activity of polymorph neaucler neutrophils (PMNs) for reduction of NBT stain

الخلفية: يتكون NBT من جزيئين التترازول يعتبران المادة المؤكسدة. يعد اختبار NBT الكمي في ظل ظروف قياسية هو تحضير استعداد الكريات البيض مع NBT في ظل ظروف قياسية ، كما أن انخفاض اللون المقدر بعد الاستخراج إلى البيريدين له قيمة استثنائية في التحليل عن طريق القياس الطيفي لطفيليات التحاليل الخلوية المستحثة للطفيليات في الخلايا المضيفة عن طريق الخطوة (الأولى) التمسك بسطح الخلية المضيفة ، (ثانيًا) قتل الخلايا التلامسية-الثانوية ، (ثالثًا) بداية البلعمة حتى يستخدم NBT لتحديد النسبة المئوية لعدوى البلعمة لنتامويبا. الطريقة: أجريت هذه الدراسة على 80 ذكرًا تم تقسيمهم إلى 25 شخصًا خاضعًا للمراقبة ، وتم تشخيص 55 شخصًا على أنهم مصابون بالنسج المطاحن في المناطق الحضرية والريفية في محافظة واسط. تم تقييم Entamoeba histolytica و NBT. النتائج: أظهرت النتائج وجود اختلاف كبير بين المجموعتين (10.96 ± 2.745) لمجموعة المراقبة و 19.63 ± 3.617 في مجموعة المرضى الذين يعانون من فاصل الثقة (7.056-10.29). كان P.value P <0.001 نسبة الحد الأدنى لعدد 7 ٪ ، 13 ٪ للمجموعات السيطرة والمريض. الخلاصة: كانت هناك زيادة كبيرة في نشاط البلعمة من العدلات polymorph neaucler (PMNs) للحد من وصمة عار NBT
