Detection of latent tuberculosis infection in hemodialysis patients: comparison between the quantiferon-tuberculosis gold test and the tuberculin skin test
ackground Tuberculosis (TB) remains an important cause of morbidity and mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients. A gold standard for the diagnosis of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) is lacking. Objective The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic utility of the QuantiFERON-Tuberculosis Gold (QFT-G) test with the tuberculin skin test (TST) in identifying LTBI in patients with end-stage renal ...

Serum Mannose - Binding Lectin in Egyptian Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C
ABSTRACT Approximately 60 - 85% of HCV infections cannot eradicate the virus and progress to chronic hepatitis, this may be explained by failure in host immune responses or by the ability of HCV to defeat host defense mechanisms. Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) may play an immunomodulatory role. This work intended to evaluate the relationship of MBL concentration to chronic HCV infection. ... Read more

Evaluation of Drug Induced Liver Injury in Tuberculosis
ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Egypt has high Tuberculosis (TB), Hepatitis C (HCV) prevalence and intermediate Hepatitis B (HBV) prevalence with unclear Dug Induced liver injury (DILI) risk in chronic viral hepatitis patients. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate DILI incidence in tuberculous patients suffered from viral hepatitis co-infection compared to non hepatitis patients. METHODS: Newly diagnosed pulmonary TB patients under TB therapy were evaluated none ... Read more

Prevalence and predictors of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis: does low zinc level play any role?
Introduction Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is a frequent and life‑threatening complication of cirrhosis. Several large studies have identified additional risk factors for the development of SBP. Zinc deficiency has been found to be frequent in cirrhotic patients. Aim of the work The aim of the present study was to evaluate the frequency, possible risk factors and the role of zinc ... Read more

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is one of the potentially life-threatening complications in ascetic cirrhotic patients. The improved survival might be explained by a more rapid and accurate diagnosis and treatment. Our aim is to evaluate the combined use of a leucocyte esterase strip together with ascetic fluid lactoferrin antibodies for rapid and accurate diagnosis of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis ...

Pattern of pulmonary tuberculosis in elderly patients in Sohag Governorate: Hospital based study
Tuberculosis (TB) in elderly is a worldwide problem. Objective: To evaluate differences in clinical, radiological, laboratory features, adverse antituberculosis drug reactions and TB-related mortality in elderly and young pulmonary TB patients. Results: The study included analysis of the medical history, chest radiographic and laboratory findings in 124 elderly and 124 young pulmonary TB patients, with mean age of 60.5 ±9.1 ... Read more

Evaluation of pulmonary fungal diseases in patients with fungal rhino-sinusitis
Abstract Setting: Little is known on the concomitant occurrence of pulmonary fungal diseases in patients with fungal rhino-sinusitis. Objective: To evaluate presence of pulmonary fungal diseases in patients with fungal rhinosinusitis. Patients and methods: A prospective study was done for 44 patients who fulfilled inclusion criteria (sinus CT, and histopathological examination). All patients were assessed for pulmonary symptoms, chest X-ray, ... Read more

Clinical Utility of Simple Fibrosis Markers in Prediction of Oesophageal Varices in Chronic Hepatitis C Patients with Advanced Fibrosis
Abstract Background and Aims: Oesophageal varices (OV) are the most common complication of liver cirrhosis. However, no available data exist on the prevalence and the laboratory predictors of OV in chronic hepatitis C (CHC) Egyptian patients with bridging fibrosis or cirrhosis. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the frequency of OV in these patients and to assess whether simple non-invasive serum ... Read more

-performance of two real time RT-PCR assays for quentitation of hepatitis C virus RNA :evaluation on HCVgenotypes 1-4
> ABSTRACT > > Accuracy for monitoring of the concentration of hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA represents a major challenge throughout the management of patients with chronic hepatitis C. To investigate the genotype-independent efficiency and the accuracy of two real-time detection reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assays; the Cobas Ampliprep/Cobas TaqMan (CAP/CTM); and the Abbott RealTime HCV (ART), a total ...
