applications in human subject are not only debatable ethically but also religiously, where objections are raised by the contemporary scholars and specialists of the field on CRISPR Cas-9 due to its potential application for the genome editing. This does however generated a dialogue both in religion and modern ethico-legal world regime. Some contemporary bioethicists are of the view that this technology is one of those issues which have the most complex ethical concerns, fearing that this technology could transforms with the expectations and ambitions about human control over the biological world. Consequently, this is an area of anxiety not only for the bioethicists but also for the theologians. Thus it needs proper investigation, as it is not solely a scientific innovation, but in fact an ethical, legal and biomedical issue.</p> <p>Bangladesh Journal of Medical Science Vol.19(1) 2020 p.11-16</p> Fazli Dayan ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43869 Sun, 03 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 A narrative review of the literature on the reproductive health of female sex workers having age below twenty years https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43870 <p><strong>Objective: </strong>Female sex workers (FSWs) under 20 years of age range from 1,000 to 575,000 in different cities and countries across the globe. There is only a handful of information on the reproductive health (RH) issues of these younger FSWs in the perspective of service utilization and healthcare system. We reviewed existing literature with a view to describe the reproductive health problems, service utilization, and service availability as well as information sources among the FSWs ages &lt;20 years.</p> <p><strong>Materials and methods: </strong>A web-based search using Google, Google Scholar, MEDLINE/ PubMed/ PubMed Central, HINARI and JSTOR was performed in English Language. The prevalence of a health issue and percentage of service utilization had been shown using ranges of minimum and maximum value which were calculated by different studies.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>Findings identified the following RH problems: unintended pregnancies (52% - 95%), induced abortion (51% - 53%), repeated or multiple abortions (13% - 43%), childbirth experiences, sexually transmitted infections (74%-84%), HIV (1% - 60.6%), violence (beaten, robbed, not paid, forced or coerced sex, rape) and mental disorders (depression, suicidal thoughts). The consistent use of condom (26%-55%) was not satisfactory. Overall 64% of under 20 years FSWs reported little or no access to healthcare in the previous year and access to RH information sources was also poor.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>This review has potentially meant to bring forward the RH issues of younger FSWs to the policy makers and programme planners to implement targeted reproductive health interventions for the FSWs ages &lt;20 years.</p> <p>Bangladesh Journal of Medical Science Vol.19(1) 2020 p.17-31</p> Tasnuva Wahed, Shakila Zaman, Fauzia Akther Huda, Li Jiayu, Salima Sultana, Anadil Alam, Alessio Panza, Ratana Somrongthong ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43870 Sun, 03 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Prospects and Challenges of Precision Medicine in Lower- and Middle-Income Countries: A Brief Overview https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43871 <p>The trend of NCDs in most LMIC countries is slowly but gradually follows that of in the developed countries. There are four significant diseases reported by WHO, which are equally common, such as CVDs, diabetes, cancer, and chronic respiratory disease that causes widespread early death &amp; morbidity. Indeed, it incurs an overwhelming financial burden to most countries in the world. The rise of drug-resistant microbes is another major problem. To overcome this issue, precision medicine (PM) comes into play whereby individual variability in genes, environment, lifestyle, and nutrition of each person is considered for disease treatment &amp; prevention. PM provides a personalized approach, the right treatment to the right people at the right time. Many wealthy countries in the West have started adopting PM though the initial cost is high, ultimately, in the long run, will reduce the healthcare cost by getting rid of the ineffective treatment strategies. However, the PM in LMICs is still at an early stage due to issues such as lack of populationspecific data, competency, expertise, and poor financial support.</p> <p>Bangladesh Journal of Medical Science Vol.19(1) 2020 p.32-47</p> Mainul Haque, Tariqul Islam, Massimo Sartelli, Adnan Abdullah, Sameer Dhingra ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43871 Sun, 03 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 The Effect of Religious Relaxation Therapy on Improving Sleep Quality of Patients Chronic Kidney Failure: A Pilot Study in Surabaya https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43872 <p><strong>Objective: </strong>It is discovered that approximately 80% patients with chronic kidney failure undergoing haemodialysis treatment experience a difficulty to sleep. Such issue could decrease the patients’ living quality. The relaxation therapy using spiritual approach based on the patients’ religion to improve sleep quality has not been scientifically proven yet. This study aims to analyze the effect of religious relaxation therapy on patients with chronic kidney failure undergoing haemodialysis treatment.</p> <p><strong>Materials and methods</strong>: The research was quasy experiment with prepost test control group design. The subjects of the research are the entire patients with chronic kidney failure who undergo haemodialysis treatment in the Islamic Hospital. The samples are taken from sixty clients recruited by random sampling allocation technique. Those clients aged 20-65 years old, Moslem and no complications.

It is assumed that air and mucus flow under quasi steady state turbulent conditions while the mixture of mucin and periciliary liquid and serous layer surrounding mixture layer flows under unsteady laminar condition in presence of immotile cilia carpet.</p> <p><strong>Result: </strong>It is shown that the mucus transport increases as the viscosity of serous fluid decreases. Also the mixture and serous fluid flow rates increase as the viscosity of serous fluid decreases. It is also observed that the effect of resistance to flow by serous fluid in the cilia bed is to decrease flow rates. The flow rates of mucus and mixture of mucin and periciliary fluid increase as the viscosity of mixture decreases also air and mixture of mucus and periciliary fluid flow rates increase as the thickness of mixture increases.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>As the thickness of mucus increases its flow rate increases on the other hand the mixture flow rate, mucus and serous fluid flow rate decreases with the increase of the mixture thickness.</p> <p>Bangladesh Journal of Medical Science Vol.19(1) 2020 p.53-63</p> Arti Saxena, Vijay Kumar, JB Shukla ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43873 Sun, 03 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Coping with Disease in Multiple Sclerosis Patients : A Concept Analysis https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43874 <p><strong>Background and Objective: </strong>Coping with disease can lead to disease recovery and improve quality of life in people living with multiple sclerosis; therefore, correct definition of this concept is essential.

The animals received an intraperitoneal injection of saline (control), EtOH (1.0, 2.0 and 4.0 g/kg) or AcH (50, 100 and 200 mg/kg), and the expression of c-fos protein was measured by Western blotting.</p> <p><strong>Result: </strong>We found that EtOH at doses of 2.0 and 4.0 g/kg decreased c-fos in wild-type (WT) mice, whereas EtOH at all three doses tested (1.0-4.0 g/kg) decreased c-fos in Aldh 2-KO mice. Likewise, AcH at doses of 100 and 200 mg/kg had a significant effect in lowering c-fos protein in both WT and Aldh2-KO mice.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Our observations suggest that moderate to high EtOH and AcH can decrease the expression of c-fos protein in the mouse hippocampus. This effect may support, at least in part, the link between c-fos and spatial memory deficits following EtOH and AcH exposure as we have observed in our previous study.</p> <p>Bangladesh Journal of Medical Science Vol.19(1) 2020 p.83-89</p> Mostofa Jamal, Ayako Ito, Naoko Tanaka, Kiyoshi Ameno, Takanori Miki, Hiroshi Kinoshita ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43876 Sun, 03 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 The attempt of graphodiagnostics of health state of the last hetman of Ukraine Kyrylo Rozumovskyi using samples of his handwriting https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43877 <p><strong>Background: </strong>The article makes an attempt to define health state and probable illnesses of the last hetman of Ukraine Kyrylo Rozumovskyi in the last years of his life.</p> <p><strong>Methods: </strong>The study is based on using and analyzing of the memoirs and biography books, containing records and detailed description of health state of K.

The spectrum of illness ranges from subclinical infection to progressive disseminated disease. The major bulk of histoplasma infections are asymptomatic or pulmonary histoplasmosis. In immune compromised patients it can cause disseminated infections involving different organs of the body. In immune competent individuals it may cause isolated adrenal histoplasmosis.</p> <p><strong>Material and methods</strong>: A retrospective study was done to look for mucocutaneous histoplasmosis. The excised tissue samples were cultured and only culture confirmed cases were included in the study.</p> <p><strong>Result</strong>: Here, we present five cases of primary mucocutaneous histoplasmosis in immune competent individuals in a tertiary care centre in India. These patients had no other co-morbidities and had only isolated lesions in oral cavity or penis.The tissue on excision was cultured and showed growth of Histoplasma capsulatum. All the patients improved with treatment. There are limited cases of mucocutaneous ulcerated lesions caused by Histoplasma capsulatum in immune competent people in published literature.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion</strong>: This study emphasizes the necessity of a vigilant look out and clinical suspicion of fungal causes like histoplasma in chronic non healing ulcers which should be confirmed by the laboratory investigations. Accurate diagnosis helps in specific management of these cases.</p> <p>Bangladesh Journal of Medical Science Vol.19(1) 2020 p.94-97</p> Mallika Sengupta, Anita Mitra Nandi, Himansu Roy, Soma Sarkar, Manideepa Sengupta ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43878 Sun, 03 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Carbapenem resistant Acinetobacter Species infection in intensive care unit: The outcome and risk factors of mortality https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43879 <p><strong>Objective: </strong>Acinetobacter spp. infection is a challenging problem in intensive care unit (ICU) because of its multi-drug resistant (MDR) in nature to antibiotic therapy including broadspectrum carbapenem group. The aims of the study were to determine the risk factors of mortality and the outcome of carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter spp. (CRAs) infection in our ICU.</p> <p><strong>Materials and Method: </strong>This is a retrospective, cross-sectional study, done in 2 years from January 2008 to December 2009.

The estimated incidence is 0.26 per thousand populations in general. The management of pilonidal sinus disease remains controversial, and gold standard treatment modality has yet to be established. Limberg procedure is a safe and reliable technique in the treatment of the sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus disease, with a low complication and recurrence rates if performed according to the appropriate surgical principles.</p> <p><strong>Methods: </strong>This is a Prospective study on 24 patients between the period from July 2014 to Dec 2018 in the Department of Surgery in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) as well as other different hospitals in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The patients having primary or recurrent pilonidal sinus disease underwent the foresaid surgical treatment.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>Twenty four patients underwent this operation. Among them, the picture was that 20(83.3%) were males and 4(16.7%) were female. The mean age was 31, (Range: 17-45 years). 6(25%) patients were presented with recurrent sinus and 5 of them had one or more occasion previous surgery. Twenty one patients (87.5%) had full primary healing without any complication. But 1(4.2%) patient had minimal seroma, 1(4.2%) patient had superficial infection and the remaining other 1(4.2%) had partial flap necrosis. However, all three healed completely with conservative treatment. The mean length of hospital stay was 2.45 (Range: 1-5) days and the most patients returned to their work within 3 weeks.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Limberg flap is very effective for sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus disease with low complication rates, shorter hospital stay, low recurrence rates, earlier healing and reduced off-work period. The surgery can be easily mastered. We recommend Limberg flap as preferred surgery in the cases of Sacrococcygeal Pilonidal sinus.</p> <p>Bangladesh Journal of Medical Science Vol.19(1) 2020 p.105-109</p> Md Omar Faruk, Md Shahadot Hossain Sheikh, Mst Maksuda Parvin, Muhammad Ali Siddiquee, Md Jahangir Hossain Bhuiyan, Mohammad Mohibul Aziz ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43881 Sun, 03 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Effect of Total Hemoglobin level on HbA1c value in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43882 <p><strong>Background &amp; objectives: </strong>Glycated hemoglobin level (HbA1c) is widely used for the diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of therapy in diabetes mellitus patients. The hemoglobin molecule is a part of the non- enzymatic glycation reaction, so it is assumed that the total hemoglobin concentration may have an effect on the HbA1c value along with blood glucose concentrations. Hence this study was done to evaluate the effect of total hemoglobin level on HbA1c value in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients and to find out whether reduced total hemoglobin level is reflected on the HbA1c level giving an erroneous impression on the glycaemic status of the patient.</p> <p><strong>Methods: </strong>100 diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients were evaluated for their Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS), Total Hemoglobin level and HbA1c level and assessed for any effect of reduced total hemoglobin level on the HbA1c value.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>It was observed that HbA1c value correlated significantly only with FBS level and total Hemoglobin level was not found to have any effect on the HbA1c value in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients.</p> <p><strong>Interpretation : </strong>The factor significantly affecting the HbA1c value is Fasting Blood Sugar level. Hemoglobin level doesn’t seem to be affecting the HbA1c indicating that Hemoglobin is not a significant predictor of HbA1c.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions: </strong>This study documented a significant positive relationship between FBS and HbA1c level only. No correlation was found between total Hemoglobin level and HbA1c.Patients with mild to moderate anemia still revealed a high HbA1c value correlating only with the blood sugar status.</p> <p>Bangladesh Journal of Medical Science Vol.19(1) 2020 p.110-113</p> Sreedev Narayanan, Prakruti Dash, Preetam Mahajan ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43882 Sun, 03 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 The Low umbilical cord Zinc levels Lead to Atopic Allergic Infants : a Cohort study during 0-4 months of Age https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43883 <p><strong>Background: </strong>The research on association between differentiation of Th1 and Th2 were previously conducted on experimental animals.

In a developing country like Bangladesh many possible factors for birth defects are present which should be identified. This study was performed to determine those risk factors of birth defect and complications associated with it.</p> <p><strong>Materials and Methods: </strong>A hospital based matched case-control study was conducted from August 2015 to July 2016 in department of Neonatology along with Obstetrics and Gynecology at BSMMU. A total of 98 mother-infant pair (49 babies with birth defect as cases and 49 healthy babies without any birth defects as controls) was included in the study. For each case, a gestational age, sex and post-natal age matched control was taken. Data was collected by face to face interview. Univariate and multivariate conditional logistic regression models were computed to examine the effect of independent variables on outcome variable using SPSS 23.0. Variables with p-value &lt;0.05 were considered statistically significant.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The mean (± SD) birth weight for cases and controls were 2718.37 (±756.9) grams, and 2617.14 (±978.8) grams respectively. Cardiovascular system was the predominant system (21%) involved in birth defects. Maternal age between 20-29 years (AOR: 4.69; 95% CI 1.078, 20.448), less than four antenatal care visits (AOR: 10.07; 95% CI 2.816, 36.0), no multivitamin intake (AOR: 7.38; 95% CI 1.791, 30.365) and presence of maternal diabetes (AOR: 0.194; 95% CI 0.047, 0.799) were significantly associated with birth defects among newborns. Sepsis, asphyxia, hypoglycemia and dyselectrolytemia were the most prevalent problems among these babies. The need of intravenous fluid, thermal care, antibiotics and mechanical ventilation was also high among the cases.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Birth defect is an upcoming issue in current newborn health situation which need to be prioritized.

While one group received 100 mg/day of CoQ10 supplement for 12 weeks (n=34) the other was given placebo for the same time duration (n=34). Lipid profile including triglyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) were evaluated at the beginning and at the end of the intervention and lipid ratios were calculated.</p> <p><strong>Results and Discussion: </strong>After the intervention, values of non-HDL-C (p=0.001), TG/HDL-C (p=0.03) and LDL-C/HDL-C (p=0.001) were significantly decreased in CoQ10 group. Values of HDL ratio (p=0.002) were increased significantly in CoQ10 group.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>This study showed that daily supplementation with 100 mg of CoQ10 in women with T2DM could improve some atherogenic lipid ratios that might be useful in preventing cardiovascular diseases in them.</p> <p>Bangladesh Journal of Medical Science Vol.19(1) 2020 p.152-158</p> Parvin Zarei, Mohammad Reza Rezvanfar, Ali Khosrowbeygi ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43889 Sun, 03 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Mutagenic properties of modified hydrothermal nanotitania extract https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJMS/article/view/43890 <p><strong>Backgrounds</strong><strong>: </strong>The mutagenic properties of modified hydrothermal nanotitania extract were carried out using the Ames test (genotoxicity).</p> <p><strong>Materials and methods</strong><strong>: </strong>The Ames test was performed on Salmonella strains (TA98, TA100, TA1535, TA1537 and TA 102) which contain mutations in several genes with and without S9 metabolic activation from rat liver using the standard assay.
