Title : Hepatitis E virus Detection in shellfish using Real-Time PCR analysis from Oualidia Lagoon in Morocco

Abstract :

The aim of the present study was to evaluate Hepatitis E Virus (HEV) contamination in shellfish from Oualidia lagoon (Moroccan Atlantic coast). The survey was carried out on 104 shellfish samples (87 oysters and 17 clams) collected at four sites in Oualidia lagoon, monthly between November 2015 and February 2017. Enteric viruses were detected by real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) according to the ISO/TS 15216 method. HEV was not detected in any shellfish samples. This qualitative study on contamination by enteric viruses (HEV) highlights the value of regular monitoring of the viral risks associated with bivalve mollusks intended for human consumption.

Title : Vitamin D status and gene receptor polymorphisms related to breast cancer risks

Abstract :

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide. It has many causes and one of these is genetic, as many genes are implicated in the generation of this type of cancer. The vitamin D3 receptor is one of these genes and has been shown to be involved in the development of breast cancer through a polymorphism. It is in this context that we conducted our study in which we investigated the relationship between the Fok1 and Taq1 polymorphisms, breast cancer and plasma vitamin D concentrations in Moroccan patients. Our study included 98 women, 53 of whom were ill and 45 healthy. We tested for two types of VDR polymorphisms, Taq1 and Fok1, by real-time PCR. Vitamin D status was assessed by the electrochemiluminescence method. Our work concluded that there is no correlation between Fok1 and disease stage and a probable Fok correlation. It was shown that there is a significant correlation between vitamin D and Fok1. In conclusion, vitamin D deficiency appears to be related to the Taq1 polymorphism which may increase the risk of developing breast cancer in Moroccan women.

Title : The Effect of Stromal Vascular Fraction to Inhibit Bony Bridge Formation in Growth Plate Injury (Evaluation Using Alizarin Level and Scanning Electron Microscope) in Rattus Norvegicus Rats

Abstract :

The growth plate is important in bone growth. Injury to the growth plate may develop premature fusion or asymmetric growth at the ends of the bones caused by the interaction of bone formation and remodeling in growth plate injuries leading to adverse bone tissue growth, a bony bridge. This study applied Alizarin and scanning electron microscope (SEM) method to measure and compare the bone bridge area in the bones between injured mice had received stromal vascular fraction (SVF) and mice that had not received SFV treatment. An in vitro study using laboratory experimental methods with post-test only control group design. Sample of this research is stored biological material in the form of bone tissue from Rattus norvegicus strain Wistar. Samples were divided into two research groups; the control group was consisted of tissue with growth plate injury minus tissue engineering treatment, and the treatment group received tissue engineering treatment in form of SVF administration. The examination of research samples was carried out in the radiology and biomedical laboratories. Average area of the bony bridge was smaller in the growth plates of rats given SVF compared to those not given SVF either by the Alizarin method or by the SEM method. This has shown that SVF administration can reduce the size of the bony bridge in growth plate injuries. SVF administration can reduce the size of the bony bridge in growth plate injuries on evaluation using an Alizarin staining and scanning electron microscope (SEM).
