  • Synthesis of Naproxen pro-drugs for enhanced transdermal absorption
  • Published at:Journal of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research, 2014, 6(8):1-4
  • Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as Naproxen have been used for a long time for the
     
    treatment of acute and chronic inflammation conditions. However, the oral administration of NSAIDs for a long
     
    time can cause gastric mucosal damage, which may result in ulceration and bleeding. Therefore, the development of
     
    a transdermal drug delivery (TDD) system of NSAIDs is of a great interest as it decreases GIT side effect and
     
    provides a constant release of drug in a determined period of time.

    Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted between May and July 2011. A self-administered questionnaire was used.
     
    Results: Among 200 females interviewed, 149 (74.5%) said that they used hair dyes. Their reasons were to hide gray hair in 35 (23.5%), to improve the outlook in 36 (24.2%), and to change and to follow the new trends in 78 (52.3%). Natural dyes (henna) were the choice for 38.9%. The main reason behind the preference of natural dyes was the belief they are safer than chemical dyes. A small percentage used hair dyes during pregnancy, and 21.5% thought that hair dyes may cause cancer.

  • Interchangeability between paracetamol tablets marketed in Palestine. Is there a quality reason for ahigher price?
  • Published at:Eastern Mediterranean Health Journal
  • ABSTRACT The objective of this study was to evaluate the quality of 10 commercial paracetamol products
     
    available on the Palestinian market. We carried out a survey on the price of all paracetamol tablet products and
     
    assessed their quality. To assess quality, all products were examined visually for their organoleptic properties,
     
    tested for weight uniformity, friability, disintegration, and dissolution profile, and assayed for paracetamol
     
    content. All imported products were 2 to 3 times more expensive than the locally produced generic products.
     
    Based on our testing procedure, all paracetamol products were equivalent to the innovator product except for 1
     
    imported product which fell below the approved specifications developed for the innovator product

  • Published at:Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology 2014, 9:15 doi:10.1186/1745-6673-9-15
  • Background Radiographers report many unexplained work related symptoms attributed to \"darkroom disease symptoms\" such as headache, skin rash, mouth sores, blurred vision, palpitation, and chemical taste. The aim of the present study was to assess the prevalence of occupationally-related darkroom disease symptoms among male radiographers in the West Bank hospitals.
    Methods A cross sectional study was conducted on a non-random purposive sample of male radiographers (study group) and nurses (control group) using a previously validated and standardized questionnaire.
    Results We were able to recruit 330 radiographers and 242 nurses. Data analysis showed that the majority of both groups aged between (36-43) years. Furthermore, the differences in the reported prevalence of symptoms among radiographers showed a statistically significant higher percentage for each reported symptom compared to nurses (P-values <0.001).

  • Short-term outcomes of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy among obesity patients in the northern west bank: a retrospective records review
  • Published at:BMC Research Notes 2014, 7:85 doi:10.1186/1756-0500-7-85
  • Background Conservative methods for weight loss are usually disappointing. Therefore, surgeries such as Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) should be considered. We aimed to evaluate the outcomes (body mass index; BMI) of LSG among obesity patients in the Northern West Bank.
    Methods Hospital records were reviewed for all patients who had undergone LSG since 2010 in Arab specialized hospital in Nablus and Palestinian Red Crescent society hospital in Tulkarem. Then, patients have been invited again to participate in the study and asked to self-report further pre-/post-operative measures. The primary study outcome was the change in BMI while secondary outcomes included obesity associated co-morbidities’ measures; hypertension (HTN) and diabetes mellitus (DM).
    Results The mean age (standard deviation; SD) of the study participants (n = 30; 20 women and 10 men) was 34.06 (10.71) years. The mean (SD) follow-up time was 7.16 (5.05) months. The mean

  • The Practice Placement in Palestine Project is the result of collaborative efforts aimed at offering students from Lillehammer University College in Norway practical training in Palestinian refugee camps. The project brought the two cultures into close contact through which an exchange of ideas, cultural values, and educational and social experiences took place. This contact aids in offering students educational opportunities that qualify them in their field of study and better their understanding of Arabic and Islamic culture. This article offers explicit description of the project\'s vision, components, theoretical frames, procedures, successes, and obstacles. The project is unique in its proposals, results, and prospects.
