Omega-3 Induced Change in Clinical Parameters of Rheumatoid Arthritis
S.A. Hosseini,F. Rahim,K. Mola
Journal of Medical Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: The aim of this study was showing the suppressive effect of fish oil supplementation on clinical symptom in rheumatoid arthritis. Forty two patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) entered a trial to determine the clinical and biochemical effects of dietary supplementation with fractionated fish oil fatty acids. A randomized study design with 4 and 8 week treatment periods were used. Treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and with disease modifying drugs was continued throughout the study. There were significant improvement of RF (p = 0.009), ESR (p = 0.003) and serum CRP (p = 0.002) after 8 weeks fish oil supplement, but after 4 weeks the RF (p = 0.004) only showed significant improvement. This study shows that dietary fish oil supplementation is effective in suppressing clinical symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
Influence of River Plume on Variability of Chlorophyll a Concentration using Satellite Images

Journal of Applied Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Freshwater discharge from rivers into the ocean is an important element of the dynamics in coastal areas. River discharge from land that includes chlorophyll a, nutrients, sediments and pollutants have been identified as one of the major causes of deterioration of the coastal water. The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between river discharge and variability of chlorophyll a concentration in plume area using satellite imagery. Satellite ocean color and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) imagery were used to present the synoptic quantification of chlorophyll a variability on seasonal and interannual timescales for the plume area of Tokachi River, Japan. Five years (1998 to 2002) of SeaWiFS local area coverage, AVHRR imagery and surface wind were analyzed using default NASA coefficients and community-standard algorithms as implemented by SeaDAS. The chlorophyll a climatology seasonal pattern showed seasonal cycles, first peak in spring and second peak in late summer to early autumn. Elevated chlorophyll a concentration demonstrates seasonal cycles and interannual variability are present around plume area associated with variation of river discharge. Elevated chlorophyll a concentration in offshore area was seen to be influenced by low sea surface temperature and wind stress.

Abstract: Razor clam or ‘ambal’ is a highly-priced bivalve collected as food source from several intertidal areas located in western Sarawak, which currently is an unregulated fishery. This study monitored the reproductive cycle of razor clam, Solen regularis, collected from the intertidal beaches of Asajaya Laut and Buntal using gonadal condition index (GCI). Sampling was performed at a two-weeks interval or monthly for two years from March 2007 to February 2009. A total of 30 specimens were dissected per sampling. The male gonads appeared beige in colour while female gonads were whitish. Throughout the study, the mean GCI ranged from 0.000 (± 0.000) to 0.247 (± 0.077) at Asajaya Laut and 0.000 (± 0.000) to 0.253 (± 0.079) at Buntal. Based on the mean GCI pattern, it is concluded that this razor clams has five stages of reproductive cycle as follows; i) gonadal development, ii) maturation, iii) spawning, iv) spent, and v) resting period. Spawning period for both sites was similar, from end of March-April to September and followed by a short spent stage from end of September-October to November and a resting period from end of October-November to January in the following year. The results obtained in this study could provide important knowledge in determining the spawning season which will benefit razor clam fishery for sustainable management and potential species for aquaculture in future.
Spectroscopy and thermal studies of the reaction of iodine with cobalt (II) and copper (II) acetylacetonate
Anales de la Asociaci?3n Qu?-mica Argentina , 2005,
Abstract: a spectrophotometric study of 1:1 charge-transfer complexes derived from two metal acetylacetonates ( co (ii) and cu (ii) acetylacetonates) donor and iodine ( s-acceptor ) has been carried out. the equilibrium constants ( k ) and absortivity ( e ) for the formation of the chelate-iodine complexes have been evaluated. the suggested structure of the two solid triiodide charge-transfer complexes reported in this study is further supported by thermal analysis and far and mid infrared measurements.
Exploring knowledge and attitudes towards counselling about vitamin supplements in Jordanian community pharmacies
Pharmacy Practice (Internet) , 2011, DOI: 10.4321/S1886-36552011000400010
Abstract: the use of multivitamins within a pharmaceutical setting has been the subject of considerable debate. objective: this research aimed to provide a platform for assessing and evaluating knowledge, attitudes and professional practices of jordaninan community pharmacists in counselling patients about the safe consumption of vitamins. methods: a cross-sectional study was conducted between october 2009 and may 2010. data collection was carried out using a 44-item semi-structured self-administrated questionnaire. setting: community pharmacies in amman with target sample of 400 pharmacists. results: a total of 388 pharmacists participated in this study. the majority (77.8%) of pharmacists believed that a balanced diet is more achievable by eating healthily than by vitamins supplements. 78.1% of participants believed that vitamins deficiency would not shorten life spans, while 80.7% agreed that vitamin supplements could be toxic or might contain unlabelled harmful ingredients. less than half of pharmacists were aware that some antioxidant vitamins have been verified to be of unproven value, or may even cause cancer. while over 80% of pharmacists would recommend vitamins on a regular basis without prescription, the majority agreed that counselling on vitamin supplements is part of their role in pharmaceutical care (93.3%), in addition to providing relevant information to other healthcare professionals (78.4%). moreover, responses to specific knowledge questions, such as the interactions of vitamins with drugs or the recommended dietary allowance of vitamins for infants, children, and pregnant women, were negative. furthermore, only a minority of pharmacists would recheck the accuracy of dose regimens in prescriptions and symptoms of true vitamins deficiency or would follow up patients to record any consequences of vitamins consumption. conclusion: the questionnaire revealed satisfactory awareness of community pharmacists about their role in counselling; however, further progr

Grondtrekke van Adrio K nig se teologie
S.A Strauss
Acta Theologica , 2005,
Abstract: In 2001 Adrio K nig published a book Focus on 300 questions about faith, which most people ask (title translated). Basically this book can be regarde as a summary of K nig’s systematic theology. K nig’s theology is so stimulating that it deserves research. This article analyses Focus, with reference to other books by the same author, aiming at disclosing the basic features of his theology. The article concludes that K nig’s theology can be described, from a reformed perspective, as ambiguous: biblical as well as contextual, confessional as well as ecumenical. K nig describes his theology as “eschatological covenant theology”. The positive and negative implications are also discussed.
Reformed theology for the 21st century: confessional, contextual and ecumenical
S.A Strauss
Acta Theologica , 2005,
Abstract: This article scrutinises two important, recently published books on the identity of Reformed theology. These books serve as a springboard for the formation of ideas concerning the way in which Reformed theology should be practised in the 21st century. The article tests the hypothesis that the correct connection and relationship between confession, context and ecumenicity guarantees the practising of meaningful, thorough and useful Reformed theology.
The uniqueness of Jesus Christ and pluralism from the perspective of the reformed confession
S.A Strauss
Acta Theologica , 2006,
Abstract: This article investigates the current issue of the relationship between Christian and non-Christian religions in multi-religious societies. The philosophical backgrounds of the pluralistic approach are summarised. Subsequently the (Dutch) Reformed confessions are scrutinised for Biblical guidelines which may be helpful in finding a solution for the problem of being Christians in a multi-religious society. It is argued that pluralism must be rejected, while both inclusivism and exclusivism can also not be accepted uncritically.
