Abstract: To estimate the prevalence and identify risk factors that may be associated with acne among university students in Syria, a cross-sectional study was conducted in the Syrian International University for Science and Technology in December 2009. A sample of 500 students was chosen. Each participant was subjected to an interview and clinical examination of acne in addition to height and weight measurements. Acne prevalence was 34.7% (172/496). Male students had higher rate of acne compared to females (42.9% versus 23.6%, ) and their acne started significantly at a younger age (18.13 versus 19.04 years old, ). Face was the commonest site for acne in both males and females. Washing face frequently per day in both sexes has a significant relation with a decreased prevalence of acne. Moreover, psychological stress particularly when the students were away from family was associated with a significant higher rate of acne. We found that the prevalence of acne steadily increased with increasing body mass index. Acne is a health and psychological problem among university students particularly when affecting the face. Several factors such as gender, body mass index, and stress were found to be associated with acne formation. 1. Introduction Vulgaris is a common skin disease which is a significant health problem among adolescents and young adults. It affects 85–100% of people at some point in their lives, and it usually begins at puberty. Acne can persist into the 30s and beyond. People of all ethnic backgrounds get acne [1]. More than half of those who experienced acne sought medical treatment. In USA, 61.9% of patients aged 18 years and older were seen in clinics for acne vulgaris [2]. Likewise in the university outpatient clinics, the most common complaint was acne vulgaris [3]. Acne formation is multifactorial. The four primary factors determining acne development are abnormal follicular epithelial desquamation, hyperactivity of the sebaceous glands, proliferation of Propionibacterium acnes, and follicular formation [4]. Furthermore, androgens play an important role in the pathogenesis of acne. Several studies in the Middle East reported that emotional stress, premenstrual factors (in females), and certain foods such as fatty food, sweets, and spices were believed to aggravate acne formation [5, 6]. On the other hand, in Syria, there is a lack of published studies on acne among university students. Studying acne is important because some forms of acne such as inflammatory acne may leave scarring and psychological consequences. Presence of acne has a negative
Sequence-Fenton Reaction for Decreasing Phenol Formation during Benzene Chemical Conversion in Aqueous Solutions
SB Mortazavi, A Sabzali, A Rezaee
Iranian Journal of Environmental Health Science & Engineering , 2005,
Abstract: Advanced oxidation processes such as Fenton reagent generates highly reactive hydroxyl free radicals to oxidize various compounds in the water and wastewater. The efficiency of different Fenton-related oxidative processes such as Fenton, solar-Fenton, UV-Fenton and Fenton reactions in different batch reactors was examined using benzene as pollutant in aqueous solutions. A batch study was conducted to optimize parameters like pH, hydrogen peroxide concentration, temperature, reaction time and ferrous ion concentration governing the Fenton process. The concentrations of produced phenol were measured at the end of the reactions. The role of sequence reaction was tested for decreasing phenol formation during benzene conversion. At optimum conditions, different Fenton-related processes were compared for the degradation of benzene. Increased degradation efficiency was observed in photo-Fenton processes as compared to conventional Fenton process. The formation of phenol in Fenton reaction depended on reaction time, sequence in reaction, purity of hydrogen peroxide and other compounds such as alcohols that contributed into the reaction. In the Fenton process, carboxylic acids like acetic acid and oxalic acid were formed as the end products during the complete degradation of benzene. With the increase in mono-valence, two-valence ions and hardness, Fenton's efficiency decreased, respectively. Sequence Fenton reaction produced less phenol and its end products had smaller COD as compared to conventional Fenton process.
Cytoskeleton and regulation of mitochondrial function: the role of beta-tubulin II
Andrey V. Kuznetsov,Sabzali Javadov,Rita Guzun
Frontiers in Physiology , 2013, DOI: 10.3389/fphys.2013.00082
Abstract: The control of mitochondrial function is a cardinal issue in the field of cardiac bioenergetics, and the analysis of mitochondrial regulations is central to basic research and in the diagnosis of many diseases. Interaction between cytoskeletal proteins and mitochondria can actively participate in mitochondrial regulation. Potential candidates for the key roles in this regulation are the cytoskeletal proteins plectin and tubulin. Analysis of cardiac cells has revealed regular arrangement of β-tubulin II, fully co-localized with mitochondria. β-Tubulin IV demonstrated a characteristic staining of branched network, β-tubulin III was matched with Z-lines, and β-tubulin I was diffusely spotted and fragmentary polymerized. In contrast, HL-1 cells were characterized by the complete absence of β-tubulin II. Comparative analysis of cardiomyocytes and HL-1 cells revealed a dramatic difference in the mechanisms of mitochondrial regulation. In the heart, colocalization of β-tubulin isotype II with mitochondria suggests that it can participate in the coupling of ATP-ADP translocase (ANT), mitochondrial creatine kinase (MtCK), and VDAC (ANT-MtCK-VDAC). This mitochondrial supercomplex is responsible for the efficient intracellular energy transfer via the phosphocreatine pathway. Existing data suggest that cytoskeletal proteins may control the VDAC, contributing to maintenance of mitochondrial and cellular physiology.

Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2010.12006
Abstract: Recently, more attention has been focused on the utilization of food processing by products and wastes, as well as under-utilization agricultural products. Some physical and chemical properties, mineral contents and fatty acid composition of apricot kernel and oils were determined. The oil yields from kernels changed from 42.2% to 57.2%. The crude fibre contents ranged between 4.06% and 7.63%. In addition, crude protein contents ranged between 15.1% and 24.2%. While the peroxide values of kernel oils change between 0.834 meq/Kg and 8.294 meq/Kg, acidity values ranged between 0.279% and 0.700%. The main fatty acids in apricot kernel oils were oleic, linoleic and palmitic acids. Oleic acid contents of kernel oils varied between 53.06% and 70.90%. On the other hand, linoleic acid contents ranged between 21.43% and 35,67%. As a result, the present study showed the apricot kernels of the researched species of apricot kernels from Turkey are a potential source of valuable oil which might be used for edible and other industrial applications.

Modern Economy (ME) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/me.2011.24050
Abstract: This paper has included the exports and imports per unit of labour (trade intensity) in the intensive growth model beside the traditional factors of production such as capital deepening to find out the contribution of total factor productivity per unit of labour (TFP intensity) to the economic growth of the most significant East Asian countries [China, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea (Republic of Korea), Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand]. This paper finds out that the impact of trade intensity is positive with little contribution to TFP intensity growth with light contribution of labour productivity to these countries economic growth. These findings showed that most of East Asian productivity is input driven without technological progress to display the spillover effects of the interaction of foreign technology and human capital that should be translated into technology transfer to local firms and advanced skills, with the exception of Japan and South Korea.
Malaysia’s Food Manufacturing Industries Productivity Determinants  [PDF]
Elsadig Musa Ahmed
Modern Economy (ME) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/me.2012.34057
Abstract: This study attempts to fill the gap in existing research on the drivers of total factor productivity growth (TFPG) in Malaysian food industries by employing a parametric statistical method and applying it to the country’s food-manufactur- ing sector. Based on the model, the factors affecting output growth in Malaysian food industries are individual contributions of capital, labour, and materials, as well as the combined contributions of the quality of these inputs expressed as TFPG. Our results for the food-manufacturing sector depict characteristically low productivity levels. The contribution of TFP growth for 13 out of 27 food industries was negative during the full period of analysis (1971-2000) and the sub-period 1987-2000. Eleven industries were found to have contributed negatively to TFPG over 1971-1979 and 1980- 1986. What explains our findings is the low quality of inputs into these food industries, which are input-driven rather than TFPG-driven.

Feyzi Kurt, Musa Abe?
Surgical Science (SS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2012.37071
Abstract: Aim: Despite the fact that reported low recurrence rates and improvement results, optimal surgical technique for in-guinal hernia repair was not found and recurrence was not eliminated. We used firstly groin innominate fascial island flap to reinforce the weak inguinal tissue for the repair. Methods: From the February 2010 to December 2010, 15 patients (13 male and 2 female) with inguinal hernia underwent repair with using island groin innominate fascial flap. The follow-up period ranged from 8 to 12 months (mean, 10 months). Results: Seroma developed in one case. Others had not any complications. Conclusion: Because of our technique avoids from the complications and drawbacks of the prosthetic mesh, autograft and abdominal wall flaps, we think that the groin deep fascial flap can be a good alternative to prosthetic meshes for reconstruction of inguinal hernia repair.

Open Journal of Orthopedics (OJO) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojo.2015.54012
Abstract: Urine examination is one of the important armamentarium in the practice of urology and it is a fundamental test that is usually carried out for urology patients, it can be as simple as dipstick analysis to a complex hormonal assays. Urine examination is done worldwide as an extension of physical examination which provides a lot of information about the pathology, and both physical and chemical analysis of urine are highly informative. There are several types of urine investigations, some of which include urinalysis, urine microscopy culture and sensitivity, urine microscopy for ova or cyst of parasites, urine cytology, urine tumour antigens assays, urine hormonal assays, urine toxicology, urine quantitative measurement and urine acid fast bacilli. Uses of urine examinations in urology could be diagnostic, such as renal function test, evaluation of heamaturia, stone diseases, urinary tract infections, urologic cancers and infertility or monitoring and for prognosis. Uses of urine investigations in practice of urology cannot be over emphasized as it has many revealing information of the physiology and pathology of urologic organs.
The Adomian Decomposition Method and the Differential Transform Method for Numerical Solution of Multi-Pantograph Delay Differential Equations  [PDF]
Musa Cakir, Derya Arslan
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/am.2015.68126
Abstract: In this paper, the Adomian Decomposition Method (ADM) and the Differential Transform Method (DTM) are applied to solve the multi-pantograph delay equations. The sufficient conditions are given to assure the convergence of these methods. Several examples are presented to demonstrate the efficiency and reliability of the ADM and the DTM; numerical results are discussed, compared with exact solution. The results of the ADM and the DTM show its better performance than others. These methods give the desired accurate results only in a few terms and in a series form of the solution. The approach is simple and effective. These methods are used to solve many linear and nonlinear problems and reduce the size of computational work.
