1 Population Control and Women Health , Yunis Khushi
Asian, African, South American and other poor regions of the globe are being extremely overcrowded due to high population growth rate and the material resources of these regions are being choked, which ultimately affects the quality of life for the masses of these regions and is also affecting the health and life span of women of these regions. More than 50 per cent population of these regions does not have basic facilities like potable water, basic edu-cation, proper health facilities, proper, decent and suitable housing, decent clothing and nutritional food. The living standards of the people of these regions are very poor and majority of them lives below the poverty line.
2 The Role of Radiologist in Conservative Management of Breast Cancer , Tarek Aref1 and Walid Mohamed Ahmed
Breast conserving therapy (BCT) means breast conserving surgery (BCS), followed by a suitable-dose of radiotherapy to eliminate any microscopic residual neoplastic breast disease. BCS is currently considered the most suitable protocol for management of early stage of invasive cancer, that combines both adequate surgical margins and an acceptable cosmetic result. The role of mammography and breast ultrasonography for many years was concerning the diagnosis of breast tumors and local recurrence after treatment. The advent of the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BIRADS) by the American College of Radiology, helps to maximize Radiolo-gist’s role through any factors: standardized the description and recommended management of breast lesions. BIRADS has increased the radiopathological correlation of radiologists’ reports, improving the reports’ reliability and has also established a common lan-guage for all of the physicians involved in multidisciplinary breast disease management team, favoring agreement on decisions, and Furthermore, advances in breast magnetic resonance imaging; functional MRI and image-guided interventional procedures have increased our responsibility in the therapeutic decision-making process. The role of Radiologist in BCT: I- Accurate and early diag-nosis of breast cancer and staging. II- Interventional role of Radiologist in BCT including imaging-guided biopsy of breast masses, stereotactic biopsy of nonpalpable lesions and or microcalcifications guided by mammography or MRI. Post-biopsy-clips insertion, and pre-neoadjuvant chemotherapy localization of malignant lesion by US-guided insertion of a hydromark (clips). Pre-operative localization of non-palpable breast mass or microcalcifications by US-guided insertion of wire. III- Evaluation of response to neoad-juvant therapy using RECIST (Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors).
3 Assessment on Frequency of ABO Blood Group and RH (D) Negative Mothers among Pregnant Women Attending at Antenatal Care Clinic of Sodo Health Center, SNNPR, Ethiopia , Kebreab Paulos
It's important for women to find out their blood type at the start of their pregnancy. Blood will be taken to find out and there are four different types: A, B, AB and O.In addition to blood type, women can have Rh factor (specifically Rhesus D antigen), which is when proteins appear on the surface of the blood. Women who do have Rh factor are classified as Rh positive (A+, B+, AB+ and O+) and women who don't are Rh negative (A-, B-, AB- and O).
4 Effect of Endosulfan Toxicity on 1st Stage of Spermiogenesis Leading to Infertility , Asiya Nisa, Yashowardhan Suman, Mehjabeen1 and Suhail Jeelani Shah
Toxicities of organochlorine pesticides like Endosulfan show adverse effects on many organs and organ systems like liver, kid-ney, testes, muscles, immune system and hematological system. Most of the previous studies focused on effects of organochlorine on activity of spermatogenic cells. However, there is very little research reporting effects of endosulfan on spermiogenesis till date. Therefore, the current study was aimed to assess the effect of Endosulfan on spermiogenesis in the testes of mice model. A 5 mg/gm body wt. Endosulfan was administered to mice by oral gavage method. Normally in the beginning of spermiogenesis, the sperm head gets embedded in the sertoli cell and finally released from the seminiferous tubules. It is very significant to note that the testes in endosulfan treated mice. They were found to get affected at an early stage (from spermatids to 1st stage of spermiogenesis), as com-pared to any other organochlorine pesticide. The present study also confirms that only oral administration (5 mg/gm body wt.) for 20 days shows effect on spermiogenesis in 30% of mice. Furthermore, in 20 days treated mice, notable changes were seen during the 1st stage of spermiogenesis. Significant decrease in testosterone level (P ≤ 0.0001) and sperm count (P ≤ 0.001) was observed after endosulfan exposure. Abnormal spermatozoa in the lumen of seminiferous tubules were found to be very few in number and with a non-motile tail. Approximately 30% of the heads of spermatozoa were found with rounded acrosome, which will lead to infertility.
5 Currently Used Drugs for Prevention and Treatment of Acute Organ Rejection , Vera Maravić-Stojković and Branislav Stojković
It is clear from the knowledge gained from the ancient times that healing is not as simple process as it seems. During long periods of time, major advancements in technology, pharmacology, and medicine have enabled the extraction of countless remedial prod-ucts from the plants. And not only from plants. Natural products have also been extracted from animal organs and later, synthetic equivalents with identical properties have been developed. The fascinating progress of humankind was achieved when the animal organs have become available as a drug. Nevertheless, revolutionary progress in solid organ transplantation was marked by the in-troduction of the cyclosporine A. Transplant immunology has become a leading science in modern medicine. Since then, solid organ transplantation has become a routine procedure accomplished with the help of protocols of immunosuppressive therapy. This article is designed as an overview of currently used immunosuppression in solid organ transplantation. Currently available groups: steroids, antimetabolites, polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies, calcineurin inhibitors, proliferation signal inhibitors, are described closely below. Each transplant center creates their own protocols. Protocols for immunosuppressive therapy offer three major strategies: in-duction, maintenance and therapy for treating acute rejection. The backbone of immunosuppression in organ transplantation recipi-ent: cyclosporine A and tacrolimus, have been widely used as maintenance therapy combined with adjunctive immunosuppressant. These drugs are in use either as a prophylaxis or as the part of the maintenance immunosuppressive treatment. Induction therapy provides immunologic ablation with upstream antibody therapy as prelude to induce graft tolerance. Protocols are briefly described in the text
6 Extramarital Affairs (EMA) for Indian Women: An Overview of its Health Impacts , Sanjeev Davey
Extramarital affairs (EMA) of men and women is becoming a rising Phenomenon in our modern society globally. Both men and women may get sexual and/or emotional motivations for EMA if their marriage is not satisfying in any aspect. EMA can put serious Impact on women if it is not secret. So, Couples should openly communicate regarding their sexual desires and expectations in their Married relationship to their partners
7 Effect of Data Selection on Reimbursement Decisions. Breast Cancer Case , Abdalla Abotaleb
One of the daily challenges for health care policy makers is selecting the right patient for the right treatment with affordable price. If we taking breast cancer treatments at law middle income country, as Egypt's experience with breast cancer, an incidence (15.4) per 100,000 beside the prevalence of HER2-positive breast cancer is approximately 15% to 20% of primary breast cancers. this will lead to economic burden as well as consequences on decision makers. When they decides to treat with monoclonal antibodies like Trastuzumab what is the appropriate time to treat the patient to achieve the efficient management of resources 6 months versus 12 months of adjuvant Trastuzumab in early breast cancer. What will be the best option for the resources and patients outcomes?To answer the previous question an economic study was conducted trying to support decisions makers. The result of economic model showed that selecting one clinical study for deciding shorter time regimen versus standard regimen is might not be strong evidence for taking the decisions because the economic model was so sensitive to the following parameters. Selecting data for health care decision making in oncology should take in consideration.Strength of evidence sensitivity analysis of that data should be conducted to ensure effective health care decisions and losing the previous criteria might lead to negative impact on patients’ outcomes and treatment resources.

9 An Observational Study of Women’s Experience and Health Needs Related to Menopause at the Clinic of complementary medicine in Lucca, Tuscany Region,Italy , Alessia Melacca
Introduction During their life women go through very different phases such as puberty, fertile age, pregnancy, puerperium and menopause. Each phase is defined by important changes and different women’s needs. In particular, menopause determining the end of the fertile age, represents a delicate period which although can be experienced in very subjective way, is generally characterised by a higher psycho-physical vulnerability.
10 DIY Making an Herbal Extract and High-Tannic Wine Treated Nose-Filter against Coronavirus   , Johnson K Gao
This article is based on the current situation that the sudden explosion of coronavirus epidemic causes a shortage of facemask. It is known that Dryopteris root, Radix isatidis have antiviral effect. Tannic acid can fix the cell membrane in electron microscopy sample preparation. Tannic acid could also cause certain degree of fixation or alteration of coronavirus membrane. The Domaine de Moulie red wine is famous in its source of Tannat grapes, which contains higher concentration of tannic acid. This is a suggestion to use Domaine de Moulie red wine to extract antiviral chemicals from herbs to treat gauze, and then use that kind of gauze to make a nose filter in order to decrease the possibility of transmission of coronavirus. However, the effectiveness has not yet been validated

14 Feto-Maternal Outcome of HIV Positive Pregnant Women on HAART at the Gambia - Case - Control Study , Matthew Anyanwu1,2*, Samuel Anya2, Richard Offiong3 and Bissallah Ekele3
Human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in pregnant women remains a huge public health concern globally. There were conflicting reports regarding pregnancy outcome among HIV positive mothers. The aim was to compare pregnancy outcome among HIV-infected and uninfected women at Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital, Banjul the Gambia. Pregnant women attending antenatal clinic at the hospital were prospectively recruited and followed up. HIV positive and negative mothers were matched for age and parity. Recruitment occurred irrespective of gestation age. At the time of delivery, obstetric and neonatal characteristics were entered into computer database. Mothers and their children were followed until 6 weeks postpartum. The data was analyzed with Epi-info version 7.1.5. Chi square at significant level of 0.05 and confidence level of 95% was used to determine significance. A total of 166 mothers, 55 HIV positive and 111 HIV negative controls were in the study. The age range was between 18 to 45 years and parity was 0 to 8. The measured adverse outcome includes; Low Birth Weight; 20% Vs 5.2% odds ratio (OR) 4.6; 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.46-14.2; P- 0.01220 and maternal anaemia (40% Vs 11% OR 5.4 95% CI 2.3 - 12.6; P-0.0001). Both showed statistical significant difference. Preterm delivery; 29.2% and 26.6%; OR 1.14; 95% CI 0.52 - 2.46; P-0.9 and stillbirth, low Apgar score at 5 minutes and NICU admission of 5.45%vs 0-0.9% showed no statistical difference; (OR = 6.3; CI; 0.6 - 6.25; P -0.21). HIV infection was associated with low birth weight and maternal anaemia.
15 Use of Immunomodulators (Etanercept) in a Miniseries with Covid-19 Patients, to Decrease the Progress of Complications and Risks of Entry into Critical Care. Bibliography Review , Adán Oliveros-Ceballos1*, Janeth Gutiérrez-Segura2, Adrian Israel Ramirez-Mendoza3 and Bryan Adan Oliveros-Galeana4
Objective: This study aims to describe the clinical results of a miniseries of 6 patients who presented characteristic COVID-19 symptoms and PCR positive, who were administered Etanercept, to avoid Cytokine release syndrome with the purpose of decreasing admission to the critical care unit. Design: This is a prospective, descriptive observational study. Patients and Methods: 6 patients with (SARS-CoV-2) COVID-19 symptoms were evaluated for the administration of the immunomodulator Etanercept 50 mg. Two groups were aligned: A) Mild: with fever, cough, images compatible with pneumonia, and gastrointestinal symptoms; B) Moderate: with fever, cough, images compatible with pneumonia, gastrointestinal symptoms and respiratory distress considered as L phenotype. Results: A total of 13 patients were identified with suspected infection of the virus (SARS-CoV-2) COVID-19, from which 6 patients accepted the administration of the immunomodulator Etanercept 50 mg (subcutaneous) in a single dose and protocol follow-up. From these 6 patients: 4 patients had fever, cough, headache and risk factors such as pregnancy and obesity; and 2 patients also presented respiratory distress considered as L phenotype. All 6 evolved to improvement. No patient was admitted to the critical intensive care unit and did not require invasive ventilatory support. Conclusion: In this miniseries, the administration of the Etanercept immunomodulator in patients with (SARS-CoV-2) from mild to moderate stage, improved the clinical evolution and reduced the risk of admission to the intensive care unit. However, more patients and more controlled and randomized studies are necessary to recommend immunomodulators.
16 Fetal Sacrococcygeal Teratoma Requiring Emergency Hysterotomy in Second Trimester , Amrit Pokharel1* and Geeta Gurung2
Sacrococcygeal teratoma (SCT) is the commonest fetal tumor. We report a case of fetal SCT requiring emergency hysterotomy at 21+4 weeks of gestation. A 22 years primigravida, with prior uneventful antenatal care, presented at 21+4 weeks of gestation with on and off pain abdomen and back for 3 days associated with passage of show for 1 day. Vital signs were stable and her abdomen was tense and tender with fundal height of 30 weeks. She was in early labor. Urgent USG revealed a live intrauterine fetus with features suggestive of huge fetal SCT for which she underwent emergency hysterotomy
17 Assessment of Surgical Treatment Outcome of Women Patients with Stress Urinary Incontinence Managed in Jimma University Medical Center, Southwest Ethopia , Chuchu Arega*
Background: Stress Urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem in women and with appropriate diagnosis stress urinary incontinence can most often be treated. Jimma University Medical Centre (JUMC) has been performing surgical treatment since the past four years and it was crucial to determine the clinical characteristics and outcomes of surgical treatment done for women with stress urinary incontinence JUMC. Objectives: To determine outcomes of surgical treatment of women with stress urinary incontinence, and associated factors in Jimma University Medical Centre (JUMC). Methods: Hospital based cross sectional study was conducted among 44 female patients with stress urinary incontinence admitted to gynecology ward and underwent surgical treatment in Jimma University Medical Centre (JUMC) over a period of 1 year and 7 months from 1 January/2018 to 30 July/2019 G.C. The collected data was entered into Epidata version 4.1, and then it was exported to SPSS (Version 20.0) for statistical analysis. Result: The study showed that the age of the patients ranged from 14 to 65 years with mean of 35 (± 13) years, 24 (54.5%) patients were house wife, 19 (43.2%) divorced, 33 (75%) were not sexually active, 30 (68.2%) multiparous and 30 (68.2%) patients gave birth by vaginal route. Forty two (95.5%) patients were from rural areas and 27 (61.4%) patients were having stress urinary incontinence for less than 36 months, 17 (38.6%) patients were having stress urinary incontinence for 36 months and above. Thirty nine (88.6%) patents were treated with pubovaginal sling and 36 (81.8%) patients on discharge were continent to urine and were cured of SUI after surgical treatment. Conclusion and Recommendations: In this study the majority of patients had lived with stress urinary incontinence and were treated with Pubovaginal Sling and high success rate was achieved with vulvovaginal Sling procedure.
18 Non Communicable Diseases and Women's Health , Oliseneku Damien Uyagu
While there are many gender-specific challenges about women’s health, Non Communicable diseases (NCDs) constitute the most significant threat to women’s health worldwide. The impact of this problem drew the attention of the World Health Organization 10 years ago at the 2010 UN global strategy for women and child health [1]. The summit considered NCDs as a critical element of improving the lives of girls and women worldwide. Ten years after that summit, NCDs remains the highest cause of death among women and girls. Several papers published about women and girls allude to this fact. Global efforts to improve women’s health primarily focused on Sexual and reproductive health while neglecting the number one cause of mortality and morbidity to women and girls. In a recent article titled ‘Women’s health, A new global agenda’ published in the BMJ 4 years ago, attention was drawn to the actual burden borne by women and girls due to the direct effects of NCDs
19 Evaluation of Black Transition to Disharmony Episodes of Private Burnside Pharmacy Institutions in Pune, India , Rahul Hajare
Consuming smelly food at the office desk can affect working conditions. Represents a substantial void in the literature both on corporate governance and international business. The new theoretical proposition of culturally determined agency has suggested. It builds on the recently put forward behavioral theory of corporate governance. This novel theoretical lens in corporate governance merges the under-socialized agency theory, as the dominant institutional logic in corporate governance of domestic firms, and the behavioral theory of the firm, which has probably the only theory of the firm that explicitly treats firms as complex social systems. Finally, three exemplifications of application of this new theoretical construct of culturally determined agency to the analysis of contemporaneous business issues in pharmaceuticals
20 Women Health amongst COVID , Rupinder Kaur
COVID has affected diverse population throughout the world. The female domain exhibit amplified effects of this pandemic. Lockdown implications has exponential impact for women in every sphere of their lives. The multilayered effects have worsened the pre-existing conditions of inequality, informal economy, unsecure jobs, limited social protection, domestic violence and so on. Heightened care demands of family members staying back at home has burdened this very group of community to bear top up household responsibilities. Mismatch in competing both home and job demands has lead her exhausted. Instead of ventilating her feelings she has been subjected to certain neglectful strategiesPsychological abuse, physical and sexual violence in relationship, family abuse and greater reports of intimate partner violence. This has left her all shattered with feeling of worthlessness, anger, humiliation and helplessness. All these have somatic presentation in the form of changes in memory, attention, appetite and sleep with fatigue, body aches and adverse thoughts of self -harm and suicide. Of course there is unpaid care and unequal share in domestic responsibilities but there is likely more chance of women getting infected with virus by comprising 70% in the frontline health care workforce. Amongst this all women has proved to be backbone of recovery in community. The need of the hour is to ensure women safety, foster her health and combat inequalities. Increase awareness and advocacy campaigns. Prioritize legal aid in domestic violence and reproductive health services. All the frontline health workers to be equipped adequately. We should find out ways to include women in response and recovery decision making whether at home or outside.
21 Woman and Breast Cancer - Early Detection Saves Life , Tabassum Kotagasti
Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in Indian women and accounts for 27% of all cancers in women. About 1 in 28 women are likely to develop breast cancer during their lifetime. In the urban areas the incidence is 1 in 22 as compared to the rural areas where 1 in 60 women develop breast cancer. Breast cancer patients experience physical symptoms and psychosocial distress that adversely affect their quality of life (QOL).

23 Impact of Oocytes Insemination Timing on Fertilisation and Embryo Development Rate , Chandan N*, Raghunandan K, Reeta Janet Jessy I, Saleem M and Shwetha C
Background: Pre-incubation period between oocyte retrieval and injection in Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles improved the percentage of mature oocytes, the preincubation of oocytes prior to in vitro fertilization (IVF) improves the fertilization rate and the quality of embryo formation. Objective: The study was to analyze whether the preincubation of oocytes and microinjection timings on the outcome of ICSI increases rates of fertilization and the quality of embryo formation and also to evaluate the relationship between different pre-incubation periods of oocytes. Design: Retrospective randomized controlled trial. Methods: A total of 129 patients undergoing their Intracytoplasmic sperm injection cycles, retrieved oocytes were preincubated for 2 - 6h prior to injection, the injected oocytes were cultured in Culture NX media, fertilization and Embryo development assessment was performed on day 1 and day 3, Patients were randomly divided into different groups. Results: Neither 2 - 3 hour and 3 - 4 hour insemination time of post oocyte retrieval had no significant influence on the fertilisation rate (FR) and showed no significant improvement in Embryo development, fertilization rate showed a significant improvement after inseminating at 2 - 3 hour gives 86% fertilization rate and 95% embryo development rate while FR significantly decreased with the increase of insemination time. Also, inseminating oocytes at 3 - 4 hour post oocyte retrieval gives 81% fertilization rate and 97% embryo development rate.
24 Low Value of Apnea-test on Fetal Survival in Intrauterine Hypoxia is Universal Indicator for Planned Caesarean Section , NA Urakova1 and AL Urakov2
The review is devoted to the justification of apnea-test on fetal survival for hypoxia in a pregnant woman as a criterion for choosing the type of planned delivery through the natural birth canal or by Cesarean section. It is shown that during physiological childbirth in women, the uterus repeatedly worsens the blood supply to the placenta, which causes intrauterine hypoxia of the fetus at each contraction. This is because during contractions, the uterus squeezes not only the fetal bladder with amniotic fluid and the fetus, but also the placenta, as well as blood vessels that are located inside the uterine wall and through which arterial blood flows to the placenta. Therefore, when giving birth through the natural birth canal, the fetus is forced to repeatedly experience periods of hypoxia. However, the ability of fetuses to survive periods of intrauterine hypoxia in future births today is not taken into account when choosing the type of delivery. It has been shown that apnea-test on fetal survival at hypoxia can increase the accuracy of choosing the planned type of birth resolution. It has been established that if the period of immobility of the fetus during respiratory retention by its mother is less than 10 seconds, then childbirth through the natural birth canal is contraindicated, since this can cause drowning of the fetus in amniotic fluid, asphyxia, encephalopathy and pneumonia of the newborn. Planned Caesarean section can improve the prognosis of childbirth.
25 Osteoporosis - Relationship of Bone Mass Density with Body Mass Index and Selected Variables: A Descriptive Survey , Athar Javeth

The objective of the study is to assess the bone mass density and body mass index and to find out the relationship between them.
26 Holistic Quality of Life in Women during Natural Perimenopause and Postmenopause , Cárdaba-García Rosa María1* and Aparicio-García Marta Evelia
Objective: The goal of the present study was to assess the health status of women during the natural climacteric with respect to physical, mental, and social variables. Design: It is a descriptive correlational study. Setting 419 perimenopausal women are involved on a voluntary basis. 273 women were premenopausal and 146 were postmenopausal. The tools used were the GHQ-12 General Health Questionnaire, and DukeUNC-11 Questionnaire of Functional Social Support. Results: It was found that the youngest women tended to suffer from anaemia more often, and that the oldest women suffered from osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and arthritis. It was also found that postmenopausal women had better mental health. Regarding social support, there were no statistically significant differences between the two groups of women. With respect to holistic quality of life, it was found that the youngest women enjoyed better living conditions. Conclusion: This study provides insight into the health of women during the natural climacteric, and a gender perspective with respect to health research with the aim of removing the possibility of health discrimination by gender.
27 Risk Assessment of Airborne PM2.5 Exposure of Forest and Land Fire Haze to Petrol-Pump Officers in Pekanbaru , Elisa Moetiara.
The forest and land fire situation in Sumatra have led to a haze disaster that contain harmful particulate matter exposing Pekan-baru population. Number of studies concerned with associations between respiratory and cardiovascular health effects and exposure to fine fractions of particulate matter (PM2.5) on polluted air have been reviewed by Kim [1]. Although studies have proven signifi-cance difference of health effect due to haze, currently there is no study to estimate the potential health risk to population exposed to haze in Pekanbaru. This study aims to estimate the risk of PM2.5 in ambient air during haze period that exposed Petrol-pump officers. The risk magnitude is represented by Risk Quotient (RQ) that determined by comparing the PM2.5 exposure intake with exposure dose-response of the workers using the Environmental Health Risk method from The International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS). Intake value is generated based on the concentration of PM in the environment, individual activity patterns and anthropo-metric values. Concentration of PM2.5 was using secondary data generated by real-time PM measurement for Pekanbaru. The activity patterns and anthropometric values were collected using questionnaire to 20 Petrol-Pump Officers from 5 different gas stations in Pekanbaru. The calculation of lifetime risk showed that Petrol-Pump Officers who were exposed longer since 2015 haze period, has four times greater health risk compared to those who are just exposed in 2019. Petrol-Pump Officers who just got exposed to PM2.5 in 2019 has RQ ≤ 1, hazard was not a threat - however risk still need to be maintained under 1. While RQ for PM2.5 exposure to Petrol-Pump Officers who has worked since 2015 is > 1, means PM2.5 in haze that exposes Petrol-Pump Officers cause the adverse health effects and the risk needs to be managed.
