Allometry of Postnatal Rat Brain Development Prenatally Exposed to Aspirin
Khalid Al-Qaisi,Ali Elkarmi,Esam Qoneis,Lubna Tahtamouni
Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2006,
Abstract: A total of 200 rat pups starting from the first week after birth until the fifth week were used to investigate the effects of prenatal exposure to aspirin at doses of 12.5, 25 and 37.5 mg kg-1 on the postnatal development of brain parts. Cerebrum and cerebellum length and width were measured in addition to brain and body weights and allometric relationships between these parameters were calculated. The results indicated that all relationships were allometric with noticeable differences between all aspirin treated groups and the control group. These differences indicate that aspirin has an effect on the development of the examined brain parts mainly on the cerebellum length and width.

Mo Al-Qaisi, David M Nott, David H King, et al
Vascular Health and Risk Management , 2009, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/VHRM.S6759
Abstract: nkle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI): An update for practitioners Review (11918) Total Article Views Authors: Mo Al-Qaisi, David M Nott, David H King, et al Published Date September 2009 Volume 2009:5 Pages 833 - 841 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/VHRM.S6759 Mo Al-Qaisi1, David M Nott1, David H King2, Sam Kaddoura1 1Imperial College, London, UK; 2Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, Essex, UK Abstract: Peripheral vascular disease affects some 12%–14% of the general population, and the majority of people with the disease are asymptomatic. The Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) test is widely used by a diverse range of practitioners (in the community and hospital setting) in order to screen asymptomatic patients, diagnose patients with clinical symptoms, and to monitor patients who have had radiological or surgical intervention. This paper explains the theoretical basis of the ABPI test, as well as the relevance of the common modifications of the test. It explores the background to the quoted normal ranges for the ABPI test. It reviews the large body of literature that has developed on the association between ABPI and cardiovascular risk, as well as ABPI as a predictor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, highlighting the evidence that can inform practice. The review looks critically at the limitations of the ABPI test, providing practitioners with an evidence-based update on the importance and challenges of standardizing ABPI methodology. This paper highlights the influence of the key technical aspects of the ABPI test that all practitioners need to consider in order to be able to make more reliable and informed management decisions based on ABPI findings.

Abstract: ging of peripheral vascular disease Review (33572) Total Article Views Authors: Mo Al-Qaisi, David M Nott, David H King, Sam Kaddoura, Mo Hamady Published Date March 2009 Volume 2009:2 Pages 25 - 34 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/RMI.S4868 Mo Al-Qaisi1, David M Nott1, David H King1, Sam Kaddoura2, Mo Hamady3 1Charing Cross Hospital, London, UK; 2Royal Brompton Hospital, London, UK; 3St. Mary’s Hospital, London, UK Abstract: This illustrated review article gives an evidence-based update on the different modalities used for imaging peripheral vascular disease (duplex ultrasound, computed tomography angiography, magnetic resonance angiography, and digital subtraction angiography). After discussing the latest technological developments for each modality, their limitations are also highlighted. The evidence is presented for the various modalities’ roles in the imaging of peripheral vascular disease, including problem-solving applications. The strengths and weaknesses of each modality are therefore critically appraised, including the salient technological, clinical, and financial aspects. This review allows the general and specialist practitioner to make an informed decision on how best to deploy imaging tests in peripheral vascular disease as part of an evidence-based approach. The article concludes with a rational imaging algorithm for the investigation of peripheral vascular disease.

Vascular Health and Risk Management , 2008,
Abstract: Mo Al-Qaisi1, Rajesh K Kharbanda1, Tarun K Mittal1, Ann E Donald21Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Trust, London, UK; 2Institute of Child Health and Great Ormond Street Hospital, NHS Trust, London, UKAbstract: Over the past two decades, the central role of the endothelium in the initiation, progression, and clinical sequelae of atherosclerosis has been increasingly recognized. Assessment of the pathobiology of the endothelium and its ability to act as a potential therapeutic target remains an area of active research interest. Whilst endothelial function has been shown to be a marker for risk of cardiovascular events in high-risk groups, there remains considerable debate about the most appropriate way to assess this. We discuss the different clinical methods to assess endothelial function, focusing on flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) of the brachial artery, highlighting the importance of using a standardized methodology, as well as discussing the clinical limitations of using FMD in individuals.Keywords: endothelial function, flow-mediated dilatation, clinical utility, cardiovascular risk

Are the Criteria for Health and Safety Available in Adjustable Saudi School Furniture?  [PDF]
Khalid Al Saleh, Mohamed Ramadan
iBusiness (IB) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2011.32027
Abstract: This research investigated the effect of adjustable Saudi chair-table combinations available in the local market on the students' health and safety. Thirty seven young students participated in this research. Ten chair-table combinations, within three different activities (reading, writing, and looking at the blackboard), were the independent variables. Normalized discomfort ratings, and neck dorsal and upper trapezius muscular activities were the dependent variables. Variances among students' body dimensions and classroom furniture were also studied. There were higher levels of neck dorsal and upper trapezius muscular contractions associated with less dimensions of chair-table combinations compared to high dimensions of chair-table combinations. Normalized discomfort ratings at the neck, shoulder, thigh, and feet were significantly higher at high chair-table dimensions. Matched school furniture to the student dimensions was associated with low dimensions of chair-table combinations. The suitability of the local adjustable chair-table combination was not fit to the students’ health. Saudi furniture industry should review and provide the local schools with the most appropriate furniture to Saudi students’ anthropometric dimensions.

Open Journal of Veterinary Medicine (OJVM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojvm.2013.31004
Abstract: This study was carried out to evaluate the antibacterial activity of ceftiofur sodium as anti-infective chemotherapeutic agent belonged to the third generation of cephalosporins against different bacterial pathogens in vitro and birds. The obtained results showed that it was more effective and superior in its action than that the other compared antibacterial agents. The disc diffusion test revealed that most P. multocida isolates were highly sensitive to ceftiofur sodium with minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) ranging between 0.625 - 2.5 μg/ml and minimal bactericidal concentration (MBCs) equal or two folds of the MICs.
