Post-shift changes in pulmonary function in a cement factory in eastern Saudi Arabia. (1/942)

This cross-sectional study was conducted in 1992 in the oldest of three Portland cement producing factories in Eastern Saudi Arabia. The respirable dust level was in excess of the recommended ACGIH level in all sections. Spirometry was done for 149 cement workers and 348 controls, using a Vitalograph spirometer. FEV1, FVC, FEV1/FVC% and FEF25-75% were calculated and corrected to BTPS. A significantly higher post-shift reduction FEV1, FEV1/FVC% and FEF25-75% was observed in the exposed subjects. Multiple regression analysis showed a significant relationship between post-shift changes and exposure to cement dust but failed to support any relationship with smoking. These findings may indicate an increase in the bronchial muscle tone leading to some degree of bronchoconstriction as a result of an irritant effect induced by the acute exposure to cement dust.  (+info)

How physician executives and clinicians perceive ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals. (2/942)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals and the attributes that might lead to the existence of these ethical issues. DESIGN: Self-completion questionnaire administered from February to July 1997. SETTING: Different health regions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. PARTICIPANTS: Random sample of 457 physicians (317 clinicians and 140 physician executives) from several hospitals in various regions across the kingdom. RESULTS: There were statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding the existence of various ethical issues in their hospitals. The vast majority of physician executives did not perceive that seven of the eight issues addressed by the study were ethical concerns in their hospitals. However, the majority of the clinicians perceived that six of the same eight issues were ethical considerations in their hospitals. Statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians were observed in only three out of eight attributes that might possibly lead to the existence of ethical issues. The most significant attribute that was perceived to result in ethical issues was that of hospitals having a multinational staff. CONCLUSION: The study calls for the formulation of a code of ethics that will address specifically the physicians who work in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As a more immediate initiative, it is recommended that seminars and workshops be conducted to provide physicians with an opportunity to discuss the ethical dilemmas they face in their medical practice.  (+info)

Outcome of pregnancies in epileptic women: a study in Saudi Arabia. (3/942)

We studied the outcome of 79 pregnancies in 44 Saudi women who had epilepsy. Their mean age was 28+/-6.5 years and the number of pregnancies studied varied from one to six. Nineteen subjects had generalized seizures, 16 had partial seizures and nine were unclassified. The commonest drug prescribed was carbamazepine and the majority of the women (61%) were on monotherapy. The seizures were controlled in 53 pregnancies (67%). Spontaneous vertex deliveries were the commonest. The indications for intervention by lower segment Caesarean section, forceps or ventouse were foetal distress, pre-eclamptic toxaemia (PET), eclampsia, breech presentation and prolonged labour. The most frequent adverse outcome in the babies was low birth weight (<2.5 kg) in nine pregnancies. The frequency of congenital malformation was 2.5%. Low birth weight was associated with prematurity, PET, congenital malformation and polytherapy. Avoidance of polytherapy appears to be the most feasible intervention in reducing the frequency of low birth-weight children by epileptic mothers.  (+info)

Eimeria pipistrellus n. sp. from Pipistrellus kuhlii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) in Saudi Arabia. (4/942)

Fecal samples from 12 Pipistrellus kuhlii captured at Shagrah, Saudi Arabia, were examined for coccidia and three (25%) found to harbor a undescribed eimerian, herein described as Eimeria pipistrellus n. sp. Sporulated oocysts were subspherical, 24.8 x 23.2 (22-27 x 20-25) microns, with a bilayered and smooth wall. The micropyle was absent, but a large oocyst residuum and a single polar granule were present. Sporocysts were ovoid, 11.6 x 8.3 (10.5-13 x 7.5-9) microns, with a prominent Stieda body, but without a substiedal body; sporozoites lay head to tail in sporocysts and contained one large posterior refractile body. Eimeria pipistrellus n. sp. is the 3rd species of the genus Eimeria found from bats of the genus Pipistrellus.  (+info)

High-level variability in the ORF-K1 membrane protein gene at the left end of the Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus genome defines four major virus subtypes and multiple variants or clades in different human populations. (5/942)

Infection with Kaposi's sarcoma (KS)-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) or human herpesvirus 8 (HHV8) is common in certain parts of Africa, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean, but is rare elsewhere, except in AIDS patients. Nevertheless, HHV8 DNA is found consistently in nearly all classical, endemic, transplant and AIDS-associated KS lesions as well as in some rare AIDS-associated lymphomas. The concept that HHV8 genomes fall into several distinct subgroups has been confirmed and refined by PCR DNA sequence analysis of the ORF-K1 gene encoding a highly variable glycoprotein related to the immunoglobulin receptor family that maps at the extreme left-hand end of the HHV-8 genome. Among more than 60 different tumor samples from the United States, central Africa, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, and New Zealand, amino acid substitutions were found at a total of 62% of the 289 amino acid positions. These variations defined four major subtypes and 13 distinct variants or clades similar to those found for the HIV ENV protein. The B and D subtype ORF-K1 proteins differ from the A and C subtypes by 30 and 24%, respectively, whereas A and C differ from each other by 15%. In all cases tested, multiple samples from the same patient were identical. Examples of the B subtype were found almost exclusively in KS patients from Africa or of African heritage, whereas the rare D subtypes were found only in KS patients of Pacific Island heritage. In contrast, C subtypes were found predominantly in classic KS and in iatrogenic and AIDS KS in the Middle East and Asia, whereas U.S. AIDS KS samples were primarily A1, A4, and C3 variants. We conclude that this unusually high diversity, in which 85% of the nucleotide changes lead to amino acid changes, reflects some unknown powerful biological selection process that has been acting preferentially on this early lytic cycle membrane signalling protein. Two distinct levels of ORF-K1 variability are recognizable. Subtype-specific variability indicative of long-term evolutionary divergence is both spread throughout the protein as well as concentrated within two 40-amino-acid extracellular domain variable regions (VR1 and VR2), whereas intratypic variability localizes predominantly within a single 25-amino-acid hypervariable Cys bridge loop and apparently represents much more recent changes that have occurred even within specific clades. In contrast, numerous extracellular domain glycosylation sites and Cys bridge residues as well as the ITAM motif in the cytoplasmic domain are fully conserved. Overall, we suggest that rather than being a newly acquired human pathogen, HHV8 is an ancient human virus that is preferentially transmitted in a familial fashion and is difficult to transmit horizontally in the absence of immunosuppression. The division into the four major HHV8 subgroups is probably the result of isolation and founder effects associated with the history of migration of modern human populations out of Africa over the past 35,000 to 60,000 years.  (+info)

Antibiotic resistance of Escherichia coli isolated from poultry workers, patients and chicken in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia. (6/942)

The prevalence of antibiotic-resistant Escherichia coli isolates from faecal samples from 117 poultry industry workers, 100 patients and119 healthy chicken were compared. Resistance of E. coli chicken isolates to ampicillin, chloramphenicol, gentamicin, spectinomycin, tetracycline and trimethoprim + sulphamethoxazole (TMP + SMX) (range 57% - 99.1%) were significantly higher than those isolated from patients (range 21.9% - 71.4%) and workers (range 35% - 71.8%). However, for drugs not used in poultry, such as amoxicillin + cluvalanate (AMX + CLV), ceftazidime and nitrofurantoin, resistance rates of chicken isolates (range 0% - 2.6%) were significantly lower than those of patient isolates (range 8.7% - 30%). Resistance to spectinomycin reached 96% in E. coli chicken isolates and 71% in organisms isolated from humans. Use of this drug in Saudi Arabia is mostly limited to veterinary purposes. Multidrug resistance is alarmingly high in all groups but was highest in chicken isolates (77.4%). Serotyping of E. coli isolates showed that 27% of the organisms isolated from patients were overlapping with 10.9% of the chicken isolates, indicating the possibility of chicken being a source of the resistance pool for humans. We therefore call for the banning of antibiotics in the poultry industry as growth promoters and recommend that their use be restricted to treating infections.  (+info)

Perceptions on the influence of cost issues on quality improvement initiatives: a survey of Saudi health care managers. (7/942)

OBJECTIVE: To determine (i) the cost issues which Saudi health care managers perceive to influence overall quality improvement initiatives, and (ii) the relationship between health care managers' satisfaction with such initiatives and their perceptions regarding the influence of different cost issues on the overall quality improvement initiatives. DESIGN: Data were collected through a self-administered questionnaire in August and September 1996 in the Western Region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The participants were 236 health care managers of private hospitals. Data was analysed using the chi2 test. RESULTS: Less than one-half of the health care managers surveyed were satisfied with their hospitals' overall quality improvement initiatives. The issue that was rated to have the most influence on such initiatives was the 'cost of malpractice lawsuits' followed by the budget for the quality assurance programme'. The issue that was perceived to have the least influence on overall quality improvement initiatives was 'data on cost allocation'. Of the 17 cost issues included in the study, eight had statistically significant influence on the health care managers' satisfaction with their hospitals' overall quality improvement initiatives. The most statistically significant was the 'measurement of the costs of quality-related actions'.  (+info)

A survey of 1,000 cases referred for cytogenetic study to King Khalid University Hospital, Saudi Arabia. (8/942)

We reviewed cytogenetic studies that have been done in 1,000 consecutive non-oncology samples that were referred to the Cytogenetics Unit at King Khalid University Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The cases were grouped according to the referral diagnosis and the requested cytogenetic service. The frequency of the different types of numerical and structural abnormalities was determined and the relative frequency of cases with abnormal karyotype was calculated in each group. This study should assist physicians in Saudi Arabia and surrounding countries by increasing the awareness of the frequency of cytogenetic abnormality in different diagnostic groups. It also gives figures for comparison with other countries and research centers.  (+info)

Expert doctors have speculated and investigated some of the reasons as to why the fertility amongst women has been decreasing over time in Saudi Arabia. Experts have identified five primary reasons as to why this has been happening. Reasons for the fall in fertility rates include late marriages and an increase in the abortions in Saudi Arabia. The fertility rate has decreased from 2.9 children per woman in 2013 to 2.8 children in 2014, according to one expert. The Saudi Kingdom has however maintained the second position in the Gulf, after Oman, which is of 2.9 children, infertility rates. However, the Saudi Kingdom has registered a considerable fall in fertility rates during the past decade as it has declined from 3.6 children in 2004 to 2.8 children in 2014. This negative trend has made experts state the fact that Saudi Arabia does not require any measures for family planning.[irp].

This Selected Issues paper on Saudi Arabia assesses Saudi Arabias role in the oil market and global economy. Saudi Arabia, the worlds largest producer and exporter of oil, has long played a systemically important role in the global oil market. Short-term fluctuations in Saudi Arabias oil production have partially reflected attempts to stabilize the global oil market. Saudi Arabia has on several occasions used its systemic role to raise production to fill global demand gaps created by large supply disturbances. The authorities have made significant investments in higher education to enable productive private-sector employment for new Saudi labor force entrants.

Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is a respiratory disease caused by a newly recognized coronavirus (MERS-Co). It was first reported in 2012 in Saudi Arabia and since then linked to countries in or near the Arabian Peninsula (United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, Jordan, Kuwait, Yemen, and Lebanon) and Iran. As of May 2014, two cases had been reported in the United States, both in men who had recently returned from Saudi Arabia (1). Also Iran has been reported plenty of cases but fortunately the outbreak subsided (2).. Recently South Korea had a large outbreak of the MERS and was blamed on locating every person exposed to the disease. Many of the 180 MERS cases in South Korea, which make up the largest outbreak of the disease outside Saudi Arabia, were caught from sufferers encountered in emergency wards before they were diagnosed, during a wait for hospital places; unfortunately 30 out of 180 infected patients expired (3).. MERS is typically characterized by cough, fever, and shortness of ...
Weve laughed and weve cried over stories in Saudi Arabia and women drivers. Lets face it: whats happening in Saudi Arabia is not about driving its about womens rights. There is the No Woman No Drive video from a few years back. Weve reported on Saudi Arabia holding the record for greatest number of deaths by driving.. Strangely as one Saudi Arabian artist points out with a new map and exhibit called Crash - more women are dying on the roads than men - and women dont even drive.. The artist is Manal Al-Dowayan who created the above map Crash (2014). Its a visual of the tragedy told through data points. She writes: Its become part of the tea-time talk in the majlis, the womens area, she says. Its always Oh, did you hear about so-and-so teachers who died in the so-and-so region?

Eighteen years ago my family and I moved to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia where my husband, Nick, had been sent by his maritime law firm. [Names have been changed and, for the record, the marriage, ended.] With last years bombing of a compound like the one we lived on and with the probable inclusion of women in the Kingdoms next municipal elections, it seems time to reflect on a lifestyle thats gone the way of the ha-ha plant.. A maritime law firm in the desert? exclaimed the pianist Rosalyn Tureck when I told her where we were going.. But Jeddah is a port and anyway, Nicks firm was expanding to include international law.. I didnt want to move to Saudi Arabia. Thered just been a spate of hijackings and even if we got past the improbable hurdle of never arriving in the first place, I worried that a truck could barrel past the compound guard and blow the place up.. Nothing like that has ever happened, Nick assured. Saudi Arabia isnt like the rest of the Middle East. Its a repressive regime; no ...

Top U.S. senators said on Tuesday they were more certain than ever after receiving a CIA briefing that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was culpable in Khashoggis killing.

VATICAN CITY (CNS) - Interreligious dialogue, peace in the Middle East and the life of Christians living in Saudi Arabia were on the agenda when Pope Benedict XVI met King Abdullah Aziz of Saudi Arabia.. After his audience with the pope Nov. 6, the king also had a separate meeting with Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Vatican secretary of state.. In the context of expressing hope for the prosperity of all the countrys inhabitants, the Vatican said it also raised the issue of the positive and hardworking presence of Christians in Saudi Arabia, which prohibits the public expression of any faith other than Islam.. As king, the Saudi Arabian ruler also is the guardian of Islams sacred mosque in Mecca, where the founder of Islam, Mohammed, was born, and of Medina, where Mohammeds tomb is located.. Pope Benedict greeted the king by extending both hands for a double handshake and then led the king into his library.

DUBAI - Saudi Arabia is delivering military equipment to Syrian rebels in an effort to stop bloodshed by President Bashar al-Assads regime, a top Arab diplomat said on Saturday.. Saudi military equipment is on its way to Jordan to arm the Free Syrian Army, the diplomat said on condition of anonymity.. This is a Saudi initiative to stop the massacres in Syria, he added saying further details will follow at a later time.. The announcement came two days after the kingdom said it had shut down its embassy in Syria and withdrawn all its staff.. Riyadh has taken a strong stance against the escalating bloodshed and, along with its five Gulf Cooperation Council partners, expelled Syrian envoys last month and withdrew their own over the mass slaughter of civilians.. Earlier this month, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal publicly defended the right of the Syrian opposition to arm itself.. It is the right of the Syrians to arm themselves in order to defend themselves. Weapons used to ...
But the lack of a decisive US response to the drone attacks, in particular, has called into question the US commitment to regional security that has underpinned calculations in Riyadh and all other Gulf States. It is little surprise that both the Saudis and the United Arab Emirates have reopened channels of political communication with Yemeni groups, such as the Houthi rebels, and with Iran itself, in the wake of the spate of Iran-linked attacks on maritime and energy targets and amid doubts over the US response. Much has been made of China and, especially, Russia moving into a regional space in the Gulf hitherto dominated by the US and other Western states. Relations between Russia and Saudi Arabia have warmed significantly in the energy and investment spheres and were a focal point during Russian president Vladimir Putins visit to Riyadh and Abu Dhabi in October 2019.. However, the visit focused far less on regional security issues and neither Russia nor China-nor, for that matter, India or ...

Generic formulations of prescription drugs can, through their relatively lower cost, improve healthcare as long as they maintain their registration-quality and public trust. On the other hand, the market availability of several generic formulations raises a concern regarding their interchangeability, despite being proven to be individually therapeutically interchangeable with their corresponding innovator formulation.. The investigators propose to assess the quality and therapeutic interchangeability of generic formulations in the drug market of Saudi Arabia, using fifteen, commonly-used, oral, solid, immediate-release, and non-combinational drugs.. The following drugs have been identified from the Saudi National Formulary (September 2006) as having, among oral, immediate-release, non-combinational drugs, the highest number of formulations (they have each 15 to 47): ciprofloxacin, ranitidine, amoxicillin, paracetamol, atenolol, cephalexin, ibuprofen, diclofenac, metformin, omeprazole, ...

Background: Cystinuria is an inborn error of metabolism that manifests with renal stones due to defective renal epithelial cell transport of cystine which resulted from pathogenic variants in the SLC3A1 and/or SLC7A9 genes. Among nephrolithiasis diseases, cystinuria is potentially treatable, and further stone formation may be preventable. We report 23 patients who were identified biochemically and genetically to have cystinuria showing the diversity of the phenotype of cystinuria and expanding the genotype by identifying a broad spectrum of mutations.Patients and Methods: This is a multicenter retrospective chart review, where clinical and biochemical data, genetic analysis and the progress of the disease were documented over five years at two centers from 2014 to 2019.Results: Of 23 patients who were identified biochemically and/or genetically to have cystinuria, 14 (62%) were male. Thirteen patients were homozygous, and two were heterozygous for the SLC3A1 gene. Seven were homozygous and one was

Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), first identified in the fall of 2012 in a Saudi Arabian patient, has since infected over 180 individuals, causing 77 deaths. Antibodies to the virus and the viral genome have been found in dromedary camels in Jordan and Saudi Arabia, implicating those animals as the source of human infections. A new study reveals that the virus has infected camels throughout Saudi Arabia since at least 1992.. Serum, blood, and rectal and nasal swabs were collected from dromedary camels in November-December 2013 from southwestern, western, northwestern, eastern, and central regions of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Of 203 serum samples, 150 (74%) were found to contain antibodies to MERS-CoV. The number of seropositive animals varied from 5% to 95% depending on location and the age of the animals (in general, seropositivity was higher in adult camels compared with young camels). Antibodies against MERS-CoV were also detected in archived serum samples from ...
The Saudi king himself was seated in a black chair set up just outside the planes door.. Saudi Arabia has declared Saturday a public holiday to mark King Abdullahs safe return home, following back surgery in New York and recuperation in Morocco.. Just hours before his return, the king boosted social benefits for civil servants, official media said. He also ordered implementation of a 15-percent pay rise for state employees and an increase in funds for Saudi housing loans.. King Abdullah also granted a pardon to some prisoners indicted for financial crimes and announced plans to combat unemployment. He is expected to carry out a cabinet reshuffle after several ministers terms expired on February 19.. Streets and buildings in Riyadh were bedecked with national flags and large banners welcoming him back to Saudi Arabia, whose Arabian peninsula neighbours Bahrain and Yemen are in the throes of popular revolts..

Saudi Arabia In 1977, a group of Somali expats in Saudi Arabia hailing from the Isaaq clan begun to collect funds for the aim of launching a newspaper covering Somali affairs. Led by Mohamed Haashi Abdi, the grassroots group has grown into Semi-political party unofficially refereed to as Somali Islamic Democratic party (later Somali National movement) Representing intellectuals, businessmen and prominent figures of the expat community in Saudi Arabia. By the end of 1979, the group had strong foothold in local Somali communities in Riyadh, Dhahran, Khobar and especially Jeddah where they set meetings every 3 months discussing deteriorating situation in Somali Democratic Republic post Ogaden War.

The Trump factor. The Obama administration always tried to engage the GCC as a bloc. For the first time since the US withdrawal of its military base in Saudi Arabia, Riyadh has received favorable treatment over Doha.. In fact, the hacking incident happened only three days after Trumps visit to Riyadh. During that visit, the Trump administration signaled favorability toward policies suggested by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, especially in relation to Iran.. One can speculate that Riyadh and Abu Dhabi are trying to seize that opportunity to step up the rivalry with Qatar to a more public level and test how far they can go with the new US administration. The inexperience of Trumps policy team regarding Middle East affairs might reinforce Saudi Arabia and the UAEs motivation to level the playing field.. Baloney of regional powers: Qatar will remain important. A columnist in a UAE newspaper noted that Qatar could be brought to heel by closing its airspace, removing its ability to host the soccer ...
On 6 May 2013, human rights defender, Fawzan Al-Harbi received a call from Al-Rawda police station in relation to a warrant issued by the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution in Riyadh. They summoned him to appear on 11 May 2013.. Al-Harbi is the co-founder and deputy president of the Saudi Civil and Political Rights Association (ACPRA) and its believed that the warrant is related to his human rights activities.. On 22 May 2012, Saudi authorities stopped human rights defender Fowzan Al-Harbi at the King Khalid airport in Riyadh and prevented him from travelling to Geneva in order to attend a human rights conference.. The Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR) believes that the summoning of Fawzan Al-Harbi is directly related to his legitimate and peaceful activities in defence of human rights and specifically his extensive involvement with (AVPRA) which defends peoples rights in Saudi Arabia. The Gulf Centre for Human Rights is very concerned that the escalation of repression against ...
The Saudi king takes more steps to show openness towards Christians, Jews and other religions. The most urgent reason is to rectify Islams violent image but also stems from a new attitude towards inter-faith dialogue towards the People of the Book (Jews, Muslims and Christians), but also atheists, Hindus and Buddhists.
Gasoline Demand Might Decline. In fact, allowing women to drive might reduce the demand for gasoline. The existence of the foreign driver often meant a large car, Suburban, in many cases. Now women might prefer to drive smaller cars, leading to lower consumption of gasoline.. While parking will be a nightmare after allowing women to drive, those foreign drivers will not be roaming the streets waiting for women to finish their job or shopping. Drivers will not park on the side of the road while the car is running (they keep them running because they need the AC). This will also reduce the demand for gasoline.. Carpooling is common in Saudi Arabia among those who work together out of town. Allowing women to drive does not mean that everywoman will own her car or use her car to go to work. This will also prevent an increase in gasoline demand. In fact, given the conservative nature of the Saudi society, carpooling activities among women might increase when a women is driving.. Many women depends on ...

One of the world's earliest smoking bans was a 1575 Roman Catholic Church regulation which forbade the use of tobacco in any church in Mexico.[24] In 1590, Pope Urban VII moved against smoking in church buildings.[25] He threatened to excommunicate anyone who "took tobacco in the porchway of or inside a church, whether it be by chewing it, smoking it with a pipe or sniffing it in powdered form through the nose".[26] He followed by Urban VIII in 1624.[27] In 1604 King James VI and I published an anti-smoking treatise, A Counterblaste to Tobacco, that had the effect of raising taxes on tobacco. Russia banned tobacco for 70 years from 1627.[28] The Ottoman Sultan Murad IV prohibited smoking in his empire in 1633 and had smokers executed.[27] The earliest citywide European smoking bans were enacted shortly thereafter. Such bans were enacted in Bavaria, Kursachsen, and certain parts of Austria in the late 17th century. Smoking was banned in Berlin in 1723, in Königsberg in 1742, and in Stettin in ...
In the early 17th century Barbadians began large-scale migration from Barbados to the areas of North and South Carolina, becoming among some of the first resident settlers in those states.[10] The first English settlement in South Carolina was made in 1670, when three shiploads of emigrants from Barbados sailed up the Ashley River. The first ship to land was the Carolina, in April 1670. It was followed shortly by the Port Royal and the Three Brothers. These three ships left Barbados with 150 people on board; two died en route. The settlers pitched their tents on its banks and built a town, which has since wholly disappeared. Ten years later, a more favorable site for the town, between the Cooper and Ashley Rivers, was chosen. This is where Charles Town was founded in 1680, where it remains today with the slightly altered name Charleston. Since the Barbadians had been in the "plantation" business for decades, they brought this concept and its associated culture to Charles Town in the 1670s.[11] ...
