Abstract

Background: The concentration of some components of saliva may be associated with certain systemic illnesses,reflecting the hormonal, immunological, neurological, emotional, nutritional and metabolic states of the patient. Theaim of this work was to assess salivary flow rate, and to evaluate saliva samples for levels of salivary total protein,glucose, and alpha amylase, in diabetics type II and healthy subject in both genders.Subjects and methods: Unstimulated salivary flow rate, salivary total protein, glucose, and amylase were measuredin 90 subjects, 60 with diabetes mellitus type II (30 controlled and 30 uncontrolled diabetic patients) and in 30 healthysubjects.Results: Significant difference in salivary flow rate in diabetic patient when compared with healthy subject. Thefinding showed no significant differences between salivary total proteins in all groups. Significant difference in salivaryglucose and amylase concentration was found between the healthy subjects and type 2 diabetic patients.According to the gender, there were only significant differences between male and female in salivary flow rate forhealthy subjectsConclusions: Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus have higher concentration of salivary glucose and lower value ofsalivary flow rate and amylase. No significant difference was seen in protein value in all groups

Abstract

An immunological study were performed to estimation the concentrations of immunoglobulin IgE , IL-4 , IL-13 and PGE2 by ELISA , calculate the total and differential WBCs counts of patients with asthma , as well as the relationship between this disease and gender in Babylon province . The study reveals that the IgE and IL – 4 levels were significantly increased (p<0.05) in patients (second and third age categories ) compared with healthy subject . The results illustrated that the patients show a significant elevation in IL – 13 levels in first (p<0.01) , second (p<0.05) and third (p<0.01) age categories respectively compared with control group ;furthermore, the study revealed that the concentration of prostaglandin –E2 (PGE2) show highly significant elevation (p<0.05) in patients compared with healthy individuals . The results displays that there is no significant differences (p<0.05) in total WBCs count between patients and control group , and the same results was in means of neutrophils , lymphocytes and monocytes ; while there were significantly increased (p<0.05) in eosinophils (first and second groups ) and basophils (all groups) in patients compared with healthy subject ,furthermore, the results reveals increased ratio of disease in females compared with males .

أعدت دراسة مناعية لتقدير تراكيز الكلوبيولين المناعي IgE )E-) ، IL-4 ، IL-13 والموثين E2-(PGE2) بطريقة الأمتزاز المناعي المرتبط بالأنزيم (ELISA) ، حساب العد الكلي و التفريقي لخلايا الدم البيض لمرضى الربو بالأضافة الى علاقة المرض بالجنس في محافظة بابل . أظهرت نتائج الدراسة وجود أرتفاع معنوي (p<0.05) في مستويات الضد IgE و الأنترليوكين – 4 للمرضى في الفئتين العمريتين الثانية و الثالثة مقارنة" مع مجموعة الأفراد الأصحاء . أوضحت نتائج الدراسة في التحري عن الأنترليوكين – 13 وجود أرتفاع معنوي في المرضى للفئات العمرية الأولى (p<0.01) و الثانية (p<0.05) والثالثة (p<0.01 ) على التوالي مقارنة " مع مجموعة السيطرة ، بالأضافة الى ذلك بينت النتائج وجود أرتفاع معنوي كبير (p<0.05 ) في تركيز الموثين – E2 لمرضى الربو مقارنة" مع الأفراد الأصحاء . أوضحت النتائج عدم وجود فروق معنوية (p<0.05 ) في العد الكلي لخلايا الدم البيض بين المرضى ومجموعة السيطرة ، ولوحظت ذات النتائج في معدلات العدلات ، الخلايا اللمفية والخلايا وحيدة النواة الدموية ، في حين كانت هنالك زيادة معنوية (p<0.05) في الحمضات (الفئة العمرية الأولى والثالثة) والقعدات (كل المجاميع ) فى المرضى مقارنة" مع الأفراد الأصحاء ، بالأضافة الى ذلك أظهرت النتائج زيادة نسبة المرض في الأناث مقارنة" مع الذكور .
