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.

Tawfik, A., A. Saleh, M. T. Ghoneim, and A. A. Hady, "Acceleration and Particle Field Interactions of Cosmic Rays: Formalism", Physics International, 2012. Abstract

The acceleration of ultra high energy cosmic rays is conjectured to occur through various interactions with the electromagnetic fields in different astrophysical objects, like magnetic matter clumps, besides the well-known shock and stochastic Fermi mechanisms. It is apparent that the latter are not depending on the particle's charge, quantitatively. Based on this model, a considerable portion of the dynamics, that derives a charged particle parallel to a magnetic field and under the influence of a force, is assumed to be composed of an acceleration by a non- magnetic force and a gyromotion along direction, plus drifts in the direction of The model and its formalism are introduced. Various examples for drift motions and accelerating forces are suggested. The formalism is given in a non-relativistic version. Obviously, the translation into the relativistic version is standard. In a forthcoming work, a quantitative estimation of the energy gained by charged cosmic rays in various astrophysical objects will be evaluated.

Atallah, et al., "Acceleration of Gastric Emptying and Improvement of GERD Outcome After Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy in Non-diabetic Obese Patients.", Obesity surgery, 2020. Abstract

PURPOSE: Obesity has become a pandemic nowadays. Bariatric surgery is increasingly performed to manage obesity. Currently, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is a widely accepted procedure given its feasibility and efficacy. Previous studies revealed conflicting results regarding the change of gastric emptying following sleeve gastrectomy. The primary aim of the present study is to assess gastric motor function by gastric emptying scintigraphy in a cohort of non-diabetic patients undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) for treatment of severe obesity.

METHODS: This prospective observational study included 100 obese, non-diabetic patients attending the surgery clinic at Cairo University Hospitals and Al Azhar University Hospitals. LSG was performed following a standardized protocol, with no complications observed. All patients had gastric emptying scintigraphy done through a standard semisolid meal (250 kcal), marked with 0.5 mCiTc 99, pre-operatively and 3 months after LSG.

RESULTS: The mean age was 38.71 years (9.2) and males comprised 57% of the cohort. The body mass index, low-density lipoproteins, and glycated hemoglobin declined significantly at 3-month postsurgery. The scintigraphy study revealed a significantly reduced percent retention at equivalent time points 3 months after LSG. In addition, the percent of patients suffering from GERD decreased significantly after LSG.

CONCLUSION: Gastric emptying becomes faster after LSG in morbidly obese non-diabetic patients. GERD symptoms improve after surgery.

This paper introduces an approach of classifying accelerometer data for simple human activities using Support Vector Machine (SVM). Classifier results are being optimized by (WWO) Water Wave Optimization Algorithm. Human activity classification has been a hot research point and has been an aid for smart human activity recognition-based systems and for analysis purposes. Numerous classification methods are introduced by researchers including decision trees, bagging of trees, boosting of trees and random forests [1] as well as the SVM that is employed in this work. Accelerometers are very effective source of data for human activity recognition purposes and have been used in many research efforts as well as this paper. This work shows the process of optimizing SVM parameters in order to get better classification results for a set of human activity accelerometerbased data. The applied optimization algorithm is (WWO) [2], a meta-heuristic evolutionary algorithm. 15-Fold cross validation is accomplished with different data preparation using a leaveone-subject-out approach. Classification accuracy on the applied dataset ranges from 81% to 97% for a first run, and approached 100% accuracy for a second run. validation being applied on 15 different folds on 15 separate dataset files each represents a different participant. We employ four different data preparation configurations.
