Halima El Omri,Firyal Ibrahim,Ruba Yasin Taha,Riham Hassan Negm
Turkish Journal of Hematology , 2010,
Abstract: Acquired pure megakaryocytic aplasia is a rare hematological disorder characterized by thrombocytopenia with absent or markedly reduced megakaryocytes in the bone marrow. We report a case of a 25-year-old male diagnosed as acquired pure megakaryocytic aplasia. Treatment with prednisone and intravenous immunoglobulin failed, but he was successfully treated with cyclosporine, with complete remission after 90 days and normal platelet count maintained thereafter.

Journal of Tuberculosis Research (JTR) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jtr.2018.61005
Abstract: Background: Tuberculosis is currently the world’s leading cause of death arising from a single infectious condition. While T cell mediated immunity is recognized to have a major contribution to tuberculosis activation, the present investigation confirmed that TB was more prevalent among patients with acute myeloid rather than lymphoid leukemia and such association was frequently overlooked. The primary objective of this study is to estimate the diagnostic delay of tuberculosis among patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and compare it to the general population in Qatar. Secondary objective is to study the clinical and epidemiologic characteristics of tuberculosis in patients with AML. Methods: This is a retrospective study of tuberculosis cases diagnosed in subjects with AML during the period from January 2008 till December 2016. Results: Among 215 subjects with AML identified during the study period, 12 (5.58%) received the diagnosis of tuberculosis. The estimated incidence of tuberculosis among AML cases was 7.14 cases per 1000 per year. The mean delay in diagnosis of tuberculosis was 64.2 days (95% CI: 26.8 - 101.5) and the median was 45 days (interquartile range; Q1 - Q3, 29.5 - 97.5). Prolonged fever was the most common presentation (100% of cases). Parenchymal lung involvement was the most common radiologic abnormality (83.3% of cases). Three patients (25%) died and 8 patients completed 9 to 12 months of anti-tuberculous treatment with clinical and radiological remission. Conclusion: Infections caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis are not uncommon in patients with AML especially in patients from tuberculosis endemic regions. It constitutes a diagnostic challenge so high index of suspicion is of paramount importance.

Creative Education (CE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2017.84046
Abstract: This study aimed at investigating the extent of using the applications of information and telecommunications technology (ITT), by the teachers of social studies in Tafila governorate, and obstacles that hinder such usage. To accomplish the goals of the study, an instrument was designed for data collection, verification of confidence and stability. The instrument was distributed over the sample of 129 male and female teachers, by a percentage of 84.7% of the study population. The most important results of the study were, that using applications of information and telecommunication technology by the teachers of social studies in the primary public schools was medium. The obstacles related to the equipment were high, while obstacles related to the technical and administrative aspect, beside the preparation of the teachers were medium. The study found no statistically significant differences at a < 0.05 for using these applications attributed to gender, qualifications and experience of teachers. The researcher recommends the necessity for more efforts to enhance the using of these applications by the teachers of social studies more efficiently, through qualifying teachers to practice better the technological skills, in order to improve the performance of teachers.
Mantle Cell Lymphoma: A Report of a Case with a Blend of Atypical Features
Firyal A. Ibrahim, Halima El Omri, Ruba Y. Taha, Ibrahim Al Hijji, Mohamad ElKhalifa and Ahmad Al Sabbagh
Indian Journal of Clinical Medicine , 2012, DOI: 10.4137/IJCM.S10608
Abstract: Mantle cell lymphoma is an aggressive B-cell neoplasm with special clinical and pathological characteristics. As the morphological variants of mantle cell lymphoma are currently acknowledged, a practical challenge for achieving the correct diagnosis is encountered especially when the cytogenetic/molecular data are not widely available. Here we describe a case of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) presented with a blend of atypical clinical, morphological, and immunophenotypic features that led to an incorrect diagnosis of B-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (B-PLL).

Yassin, Mohamed A;El Omri, Halima;Al-Hijji, Ibrahim;Taha, Ruba;Hassan, Reham;Aboudi, Kamal Al;El-Ayoubi, Hanadi;
Brazilian Journal of Infectious Diseases , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-86702010000500019
Abstract: strongyloides stercoralis (s.s.) is a human intestinal parasite, which may lead to complicated strongyloidiasis. we report a case of disseminated strongyloidiasis following the treatment of myeloma. the patient developed skin lesions, respiratory distress, aseptic meningitis and bacterial and fungal sepsis. the diagnosis of strongyloidiasis was established through endotracheal tube secretions. despite the treatment with ivermectin and albendazole, the outcome was fatal. the value of screening for strongyloidiasis is unclear but may be of benefit in patients with hematological malignancies from high endemic areas
Investigating Cognitive Processes Underlying Reading in Arabic: Evidence from Typical and Poor Reading Performance  [PDF]
Haitham Taha
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2013.412148

The current study has examined by which cognitive factors at the field of phonological and visual processing, rapid automatized naming and morphological awareness, contribute to reading and decoding abilities among typical and poor native Arabic readers. In the current study, the performances of two groups of participants, typical and poor readers were compared through tasks that examined their performance with regard to the areas of functions mentioned above in addition to other tasks that examined their performance in reading meaningful and pseudo words. The study’s results have indicated that the visual and phonological processing skills play an important role in reading among typical and poor readers as well. Moreover, it was found that the visual and phonological processing skills of participants with poor reading skills were lower in comparison to participants with typical reading abilities.

Ischemic Monomelic Neuropathy after a Brachio-Cephalic AVF Creation: A Case Report and Review of Literature  [PDF]
Mohamad Taha
World Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery (WJCS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/wjcs.2017.73004
Abstract: Ischemic monomelic neuropathy (IMN) is an under-diagnosed and disabling complication of upper extremity hemodialysis access. The hemodynamic disturbance that occurs during the time of access creation can lead to both neurologic and ischemic complications. These complications are most commonly seen following proximal procedures involving the upper limbs. Diagnosis and treatment are often delayed, and even with early intervention, neurologic dysfunction may be irreversible. IMN can lead to significant long-term disability. Almost all cases of IMN occur with brachial artery-based access, procedures and the vast majority of patients are diabetic and females. I report a case of IMN after left BC AVF operation which was treated successfully by early access ligation, providing a review of the literature.

iBusiness (IB) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2011.32024
Abstract: Various systems, methods and techniques are in use by patients and medical centers to provide the necessary information and to serve medical profession including hospital information systems. One of the most important services is Personal Health care Record (PHR) portability and management. This problem has become out of history of paper records kept separately by physicians, clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, insurance companies and patients themselves. Many approaches were implemented to improve and manage the PHR including portability solution. These approaches were based on implementing portable memory device such as flash memory and Smart Cards. In this work an embedded PHR system was developed. The developed system allows operating and managing PHR by the help of standalone system.
The Corporate Governance Practices: Evidence from MENA Countries  [PDF]
Aws AlHares, Gerard Dominic, Ruba Al Abed
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2019.94065

This study investigates the level of compliance and disclosure of corporate governance mechanisms in Middle East and North Africa countries. The study uses a panel data of 250 companies from MENA countries between 2009 and 2016. The ordinary least square multiple regression analysis technique is used to examine the relationships. Additionally, to alleviate the concern of potential endogeneity, we use fixed effect regression, two-stage least squares using instrumental variables. The results show that the level of voluntary compliance with and disclosure of corporate governance mechanisms among MENA countries varies substantially across countries and is low. The result is consistent with the neo-institutional theory. Future research could investigate more sets of firm-level internal CG mechanisms and country-level variables and use of weighted index. This study extends, as well as contributes to the extant CG literature by offering new evidence on the effect of corporate governance mechanisms among listed firms in ten different MENA countries within a neo-institutional theoretical perspective. The findings will help regulators and policy makers in their countries to pursue reforms to improve national governance quality.

International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning (iJET) , 2011, DOI: 10.3991/ijet.v6i2.1443
Abstract: E-training is considered nowadays as a very important issue for business organization because of the benefits it can bring. Unfortunately, e-training is not fit well in most of Jordanian organization. In order to implement e-training successfully in an organization, you need the right people at the right place using the right resources. Furthermore, it is essential to measure the organization’s acceptance for the new e-training system before implementing it in order to gain its full potential. This research proposes a model to measure an organization’s acceptance for a new e-training system. This model has been developed from various previous studies and then it has been tested using quantitative methods (Questionnaire). The studied factors which are believed to affect the e-training acceptance are: System Functionality, Finance Resources and Human capabilities.
