A Case of Ectopic Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) from Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Resistant to Therapy  [PDF]
Ohoud Almohareb, Juan Rivera
Open Journal of Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases (OJEMD) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojemd.2013.37037
Abstract:

Introduction: Ectopic secretion of GHRH is a rare cause of acromegaly. However, its recognition is clinically important because different therapeutic approaches are required. Case Presentation: We present a challenging case of acromegaly secondary to ectopic GHRH secretion from pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor in a 52-year-old female. The patient is treated with different modalities which include pegvisomant in an attempt to control the stimulated GH-axis considering the limited data about its use in treatment of ectopic acromegaly. Conclusion: GHRH-secreting tumor is a rare cause of acromegaly. Surgical resection of the tumor is the therapy of choice whenever possible. However, further studies are warranted for unresectable tumor or resistant cases.

Abstract: The researcher tried to discuss the problems related to female deaf students. The title of the study is “Problems of the Program for Teaching Female Deaf Students at the College of Education for Home Economy and Technical Education at the University of Princess Noura Bint Abdulrahman in Riyadh”. In order to identify the program problems, the researcher, Ohoud Alshamsan, tried to answer the following research question: what are the problems of programs for teaching female deaf students (FDS) at the college of education for home economy and technical education (CEHETE) at the University of Princess Noura Bint Abdulrahman in Riyadh? Research Population: The population of the study consisted of the teaching staff and FDS at the CEHETE in the University of Princess Noura Bint Abdulrahman in Riyadh. The population of the study consisted of 38 members of the teaching staff and 25 participants of the FDS. The study sampling included the afore-mentioned population, which comprises of 33 teaching staff and 20 FDS. Methodology: The researcher used the descriptive analytical approach and a questionnaire for data collection in answering the main question of the study. The data were analyzed and categorized using the SPSS program which yielded to the following results: Results of the Study: 1) There are no statistically differences at level 0.05 in the attitudes of the interviewees towards the FDS problems. 2) There are no statistically differences at level 0.05 in the attitudes of the interviewees with respect to the FDS academic problems. 3) There are no statistically differences at level 0.05 in the attitudes of the interviewees towards the FDS administrative problems. Main Recommendations: Based on the results of the study, the following recommendations emerged: 1) Recruiting more special education female teachers with specialization in “deaf handicapped education”. 2) Recruiting more special education female teachers with specialization in “sign language”. 3) Cooperating with societies concerned with these programs should be resorted to compensate for lack of specialist in this vital area. This kind of cooperation is likely to strengthen higher education programs for teaching deaf and weak hiring female students. 4) Signing contracts with female teacher specializing in deaf education or with female interpreters specializing in sign language.

Journal of Cosmetics, Dermatological Sciences and Applications (JCDSA) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jcdsa.2018.84024
Abstract: This study focuses on the determination, as well as, the composition of some heavy metals contained in 12 eye shadow cosmetic samples. An elemental analysis of heavy metals (Ti, Cr, Fe, Ni, Cu, Co, Mn, Pb, and Zn) was performed by X-ray Fluorescence. The constitution of some samples was studied by Powder X-Ray Diffraction. Heavy metals exist as zinc oxide, Titanium dioxide, Iron oxide, Bismuth oxychloride, and lead sulfide. The quantification of selected toxic heavy metals lead, copper and nickel were achieved by Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometry after digestion with concentrated acids. In all analyzed samples lead had a concentration less than 20 ppm, which indicated good manufacturing practice. Copper and nickel levels were within acceptable concentrations, but overpasses the safe limit appeared in China samples. The prolonged use of cosmetics case an allergic problem for consumers. Therefore, quality controls are highly controlled for imported products with different regulations.

Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OJOG) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojog.2014.44030
Abstract:

Objectives: Endometrial sampling became the first choice in screening endometrial pathology. The technique is accurate and simple. The aim is to evaluate the use of endometrial sample in outpatients’ clinic as a routine by LEVEL of gynecological resident in training. Methods: A retrospective study of 463 patients seen by the residents at KAUH. A detailed history was obtained from medical records file. Reasons for endometrial sampling were divided into 6 categories, including screening, PMB, Menorrhagia or AUB, bulky uterus and cervical lesion. Endometrial sample was obtained using Pipelle. Results: Out of 463 patients, 128 had en-dometrial sampling as screening (27.6%), 84 had PMB (18.1%), 91 Menorrhagia (19.7%), 108 AUB (23.3%), 20 bulky uterus (4.3%) and 32 cervical lesion (6.9%). In 30% of cases the sample insufficient, diagnosis in 54.2% benign, endometrial hyperplasia (6.0%) 19 diagnosed (endometrial cancer) (4.1%) in (5.6%) had endometritis. 70% of patients saved had a D&C. Conclusion: Endometrial biopsy is found to be accurate, easy, and safe and can be done by LEVEL of gynecological residents, accuracy of 70% of cases, additional endometrial assessment undertaken if diagnosis is not made.

International Journal of Organic Chemistry (IJOC) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ijoc.2017.71002
Abstract: New functionalized fused heterocycles, such as, 1,3,6,9,11-pentasubstituted-pyrido[3,2-f:6,5-f']bis([1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-a]-pyrimidin-5(1H)-ones (6) and 1,3-disubstituted-7-[(E)-2-(thiophen-2-yl)ethenyl]-1,4,9,9a-tetrahydro-6H-[1,2,4]triazino[4,3-b][1,2,4,5]-tetrazin-6-ones (16) were synthesized via reaction of the hydrazonoyl chlorides (1) with 1,3,6-triphenyl-9-thioxo-9,10-dihydro-pyrimido [4,5-b]pyrido[4,5-d][1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-a]pyrimidin-5,7(1H,8H)-di-one (5) and 4-amino-6-[(2-thiophen-2-yl)ethenyl]-3-thioxo-3,4-dihydro-[1,2,4]triazin-5(2H)-one (11), respectively. The mechanism and the regioselectivity of the studied reactions have been discussed. The biological activity of the products has been evaluated against some fungi and bacteria species. The tested compounds exhibited moderate activity against the bacteria species.

Open Journal of Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases (OJEMD) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojemd.2016.62014
Abstract: Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D and the adipokine resistin in Saudi diabetic patients and those at high risk to develop atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. Methodology: One hundred and sixty seven subjects were recruited for the cross-sectional study at King Fahad Medical City, Saudi Arabia. Blood samples were analyzed for biochemical parameters. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and resistin levels were measured for all the participants. Result: Fifty six type-1, 55 type-2 diabetic patients and 56 healthy controls were recruited. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D level in the control group was 44.21 ± 41.80 μg/ml compared to 50.67 ± 35.60 μg/ml in the diabetic group (P = 0.427) with no significant different between type-2 diabetes mellitus and type-1 diabetes mellitus (P = 0.628). Resistin level in the control group was 14.00 ± 7.39μg/ml compared to 20.21 ± 16.94 μg/ml in the diabetic group (P ≤ 0.01), no significant difference between type-2 diabetes mellitus and type-1 diabetes mellitus (P = 0.817). Resistin in those taking vitamin D supplementation was 21.34 ± 18.27 μg/ml; and in those not taking vitamin D supplementation, it was 17.4 ± 11.19 μg/ml; (P = 0.237). There was significant negative correlation between 25-hydroxyvitamin D and resistin in type-2 diabetes mellitus (P ≤ 0.043) and no significant correlation was found between vitamin 25 (OH) D and resistin level in type-1 diabetes mellitus (P = 0.538). Blood urea and creatinine showed significant positive correlation with vitamin 25 (OH) D in one hand and resistin level on the other hand. Discussion and Conclusions: Severalin vitroandin vivostudies have confirmed that the vitamin 25 (OH) D have numerous important functions in the body. The circulating vitamin 25 (OH) D and resistin levels were associated with general inflammation in renal diseases. This study showed significant negative correlation
