Abouelnaga, "Accelerating Innovation in Outcomes and Quality of Care Research Through Integration of Clinical Databases; Pediatric Oncology Experience in Egypt", American Society of Clinical Oncology, Chicago, ASCO - JCO, 2014. Abstract

Background: Children’s Cancer Hospital -Egypt was established to serve as the country major referral center. Within 6 years the hospital has received 13,865 patients with cancer among 19,744 screened ones. With this rapidly growing number the hospital looked for developing a reliable method for examining the quality of care and supporting health services research as an emerging field in the country. The aim of this paper is to describe the role of integrating several databases in providing a 360 view for healthcare picture. Methods: We have developed an online cancer registry database using RedCap data capture system to gather patients data from different sources. This database was integrated with the electronic medical records to share new patients data instantaneously. Two nurses were trained to curate the database daily and act as human quality control gateway. Cancer registry provided data about 19,927 patients were examined between 2007 and 2013. The second aspect was provided by digitizing and Optical Character Recognition of 12,573 pathology paper-based reports. Pathology reports were analysed electronically to extract dates, initial and final diagnoses, gross and microscopic pictures and markers used for diagnosis. A third aspect was added to the model by mining Radiology Information System database to extract 258,632 studies for all patients. Radiological studies were organized to show the type of investigation, time needed and outcome. Results: A unified comprehensive new database was developed showing uncountable number of quality of care indices and correlations between different initial and final timepoints. Those indicators included delay of diagnosis, reporting and difference in outcomes correlated with epidemiological aspects. The time used to develop this database was two weeks in the first time. A standard operating procedures was developed to decrease time during future updates. Conclusions: Accelerated pathway to research can be acquired in any settings including unprivileged low-middle income countries via structured reporting, integration between different databases and using simple information technology skills.

Introduction and purpose: Institution-lead clinical research is a systematic effort for understanding diseases and its management in relation to local situation and needs. In Egypt, Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt has initiated a clinical research program that aims at standardising treatment protocols for different diseases including Retinoblastoma. The aim of this study is to present the steps we’ve conducted, specific challenges we’ve faced, key performance indicators that we’ve designed and achievements we have accomplished. Methods: During the evolution of this program we’ve tracked events and progress in the retinoblastoma program over an online shared application. This was reported on observational basis by research team for practices of clinical, pharmacy, nursing and other supporting teams beside research team itself. Retinoblastoma Research Team has used shared online documents for facilitating collaborative building of reports. Results: Between July 2007 and and July 2012 we’ve adopted 5 treatment protocols. We’ve enrolled 250 patients over those protocols. Follow-up of challenges revealed different factors related to nature of the retinoblastoma disease and management, knowledge of clinical and research teams, settings in developing countries and factors related to registration and follow-up of huge numbers of patients. Physicians were engaged in the program through weekly discussions and tumour board meetings. We’ve implemented a tailored training program for nurses and pharmacists about the disease and treatment protocols. The research team has developed an online protocols portal to disseminate the latest versions of treatment roadmaps to clinical management teams. We succeeded to integrate a real-time follow-up system that reports full picture of the performance of retinoblastoma patients. Significance: This model represents an example for facilitating the transformation into clinical research in developing countries with the aid of international best practices and information technology tools. The paper represents a blueprint for other institutions in low resource countries to integrate its unique knowledge about the disease and its response into practice.

Todorova, D., N. B. Talaat, Z. Katerova, V. Alexieva, and B. T. Shawky, 35. Polyamines and brassinosteroids in drought stress responses and tolerance in plants, : Wily Online Library , 2016. AbstractWebsite

This review highlights the recent advances concerning the role of polyamines and brassinosteroids in stress tolerance of plants with a special accent on drought. Alterations of the endogenous polyamine and brassinosteroid levels and their function in alleviation of drought stress are discussed. Possibilities for application of exogenous polyamines and brassinosteroids to lessen the stress injuries and to increase drought tolerance are also summarized. Genetic and molecular approaches for improving plant tolerance to drought via modification of polyamine levels and involvement of brassinosteroids in signal transduction pathways under stress are presented. Interaction of polyamines and brassinosteroids with phytohormones and osmolytes under drought stress is reviewed. We describe also the recent investigations in Bulgaria and Egypt concerning the modulation of plant reactions to drought stress by application of polyamines and brassinosteroids.
