Relationship between the Level of Helicobacter pylori and Number of Platelets in Non-ITP Patients Who Underwent Gastroscopy  [PDF]
Osman Mavis, Korhan Kapucu
Open Journal of Gastroenterology (OJGas) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojgas.2017.75018
Abstract: Purpose: To investigate both the presence of H. pylori in non-ITP patients who had not undergone H. pylori eradication, and also its relationship (if any) with the number of platelets. Methods: This retrospective study was performed with a total of 220 cases aged between 18 and 65 years who had undergone gastroscopy. H. pylori levels of the participants were investigated, and concurrently their hemograms were analyzed, and their platelet counts were performed. At the same time, cases in the H. pylori positive arm were compared with sub-groups categorized based on their degree of positivity. Results: A statistically significant difference was not detected between platelet counts of the cases based on their H. pylori levels (p = 0.583). A statistically significant difference was detected between H. pylori levels, and distribution of histopathological diagnosis of the cases (p = 0.001; p < 0.01). Conclusion: Our study results revealed that in cases where any primary or secondary factor which might affect platelets is absent, the presence of H. pylori has not any effect on platelet counts.
Upper GIS Endoscopy Indications of Patients Consulted at Internal Medicine Outpatient Clinics and Data Obtained According to These Indications  [PDF]
Muhammed Tunc, Banu Boyuk, Osman Mavis
Open Journal of Gastroenterology (OJGas) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojgas.2016.64015
Abstract: Background and aim: Esophagogastroduodenoscopy is an innovative method used in order to diagnose esophagus, stomach, and duodenum diseases. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy is fundamental for the prognosis of various benign and malign upper gastrointestinal diseases, as well as for therapy or disease follow-up. The aim of the present study is to classify endoscopy results according to indications and to reveal which indications and results are most commonly seen. Materials and methods: The Esophagogastroduodenoscopy results of 6243 patients were evaluated retrospectively; all patients had applied to the Gaziosmanpa?a Taksim Education and Research Hospital Department of Internal Medicine from 2010 to 2015 on either an outpatient or inpatient basis. Results: In our study, 2548 of the patients were male and 3695 were female. The mean age of the patients was 49.37 ± 16.90 years. The indications for Esophagogastroduodenoscopy were dyspeptic symptoms for 72.8% of females and 70.4% of males. Anemia was the indication for 12.1% of females and 11.8% of males. Other indications included gastrointestinal bleeding, dysphagia, nausea and vomiting, gastroesophageal reflux disease symptoms and weight loss. Peptic ulcer disease was the result of Esophagogastroduodenoscopy for 55.7% of females and 50.6% of males. Gastric ulcer (15.2% of females and 16% of males), reflux esophagitis (8.1% of females and 10.1% of males), and duodenal ulcer (6.8% of females and 10.1% of males) were the other results. Malignancy was mostly observed in patients whose indications were anemia. Conclusion: The upper gastrointestinal system endoscopy continues to be an up-to-date method of displaying the effectiveness of diseases to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of the symptoms and complaints of the gastrointestinal system, particularly in the evaluation of patients having persistent symptoms.

Local Business Climate in Ghana – Insights for Policy Direction
Mavis Serwah Benneh Mensah
International Journal of Business and Management , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v7n2p17
Abstract: This study provides insights for enhancing the business climate in Ghana. The primary objective of the study was to identify the most relevant binding constraint(s) on the activities of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in the manufacturing sector of Sunyani Municipality and Berekum District of Ghana. Accordingly, a survey of 85 manufacturing MSMEs was conducted. In spite of energy crisis in Ghana at the time of research, the most relevant binding constraints to the enterprises surveyed were poor access to technology including technological support services, and poor access to market (which will be discussed in subsequent paper). The findings contradict policy focus on addressing governance and regulatory bottlenecks, and inadequate physical infrastructure. This underscores the importance of local business climate surveys in addition to national surveys in establishing the right policy focus for enhancing the business climate of localities within a country.
Access to Market of a Manufacturing Small Business Sector in Ghana
Mavis Serwah Benneh Mensah
International Journal of Business and Management , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v7n12p36
Abstract: This paper concludes presentation on two most relevant binding constraints identified by a manufacturing ‘small’ business sector in Ghana. The first constraint of limited access to technology was discussed in an earlier paper in this Journal. The second constraint of limited access to market was studied to determine the extent to which manufacturing ‘small’ businesses had access to market and to identify one or two overriding factors that constrained ability of the businesses to access market. This was achieved through a survey of 85 manufacturing small businesses in Berekum District and Sunyani Municipality of Ghana. Low demand for goods came up as the overriding factor that constrained the enterprises’ ability to access market. To tackle the problem of low demand, it is indispensable for government to spearhead creation of required co-ordination externalities and champion the course of self-discovery as a nation.
Moral Judgment: Truth, Order and Consequence  [PDF]
Magda Osman
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2015.65061
Abstract: Often we make snap moral judgments based on limited information. For instance upon reading a newspaper headline we very quickly decide on whether the implied outcome is good or bad. However, in situations like this we are also likely to revise our judgments when we read the main story and the conclusion of the article. One question yet to be answered is whether we adjust our moral judgments in a systematic way as we gain more details about a moral scenario. Two experiments (lab-based, online) addressed this question along with the influence of other factors on moral judgments (the origin of the moral scenario, the severity of the consequence of the scenario). Across both experiments, moral judgments were: 1) generally adjusted downwards as more information was presented; 2) more severe for headlines than the main story or the conclusion; 3) more severe for scenarios that were fabricated than real life stories; 4) more severe when the conclusion involved a severe consequence than a non-severe consequence.
Dynamic Moral Judgments and Emotions  [PDF]
Magda Osman
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2015.68090
Abstract: We may experience strong moral outrage when we read a news headline that describes a prohibited action, but when we gain additional information by reading the main news story, do our emotional experiences change at all, and if they do in what way do they change? In a single online study with 80 participants the aim was to examine the extent to which emotional experiences (disgust, anger) and moral judgments track changes in information about a moral scenario. The evidence from the present study suggests that we systematically adjust our moral judgments and our emotional experiences as a result of exposure to further information about the morally dubious action referred to in a moral scenario. More specifically, the way in which we adjust our moral judgments and emotions appears to be based on information signalling whether a morally dubious act is permitted or prohibited.
Behavioral Economics: Where Is It Heading?  [PDF]
Magda Osman
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2015.69109
Abstract: The addition of “behavioral” to economics has given rise to a highly successful field of research. But, is it just a fashionable new trend or is it here to stay? More to the point, how does it differ from its close relative psychology? To answer these questions, the present article considers what behavioral economics is, and where it started, with the aim of trying to forecast what the status of it will be in the future. In forecasting where behavioral economics might be heading, the argument proposed here is that the best clues can be found in psychological research. If, as has been proposed here, behavioral economics partners research trends in psychology, then the futures of both will almost certainly be moving in the same direction. Both are beginning to, and will start to rely on online tools/mobile phone applications to collect richer data revealing dynamic tends over long time horizons, and as technology continues to facilitate ways of looking at group behaviour online, then larger scale studies examining interactions amongst multiple groups of people will become the norm rather than the exception. More specifically this article speculates on the future research focus of researchers in behavioral economics and the extent to which this will overlap with psychological research on judgment and decision-making.
