Introduction: Helminthiasis or worm infestations refer to worms that live as parasites in the human body and are a fundamental cause of disease associated with health and nutritional problems beyond gastrointestinal tract disturbances. De-worming school children by antihelminthic drug treatment is a curative approach for expelling the heavy worm load. Objectives: To assess the prevalence & types of of Soil Transmitted Helminthic (STH) infestations among school going children in selected schools in Satara district. To study anti-helminthic ongoing activities in Satara district. Method: a descriptive survey was conducted in Satara district in Jan-Feb 2013 by KIMSDU Karad along with stool examination by WHO approved Kato-Katz technique among school going students. Results: The prevalence of Soil Transmitted Helminthiasis was found <1%. Conclusion: STH prevalence of <1% which is lowest ever reported from India. This result would be related to improved hygienic practices and periodic mass deworming. © 2016, Indian Journal of Public Health Research and Development. All rights reserved.

Lead is one of the most widely scattered toxic metals in the environment and used by mankind for over 9,000 years. Lead in the environment may be derived from natural or anthropogenic sources. In humans, lead can cause a wide range of biological effects depending upon the level and duration of exposure. The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of lead exposure on systolic and diastolic blood pressure, serum calcium, ionized calcium, phosphorus, parathyroid hormone and vitamin D and examine the overall effect of all these parameters on the bone mineral density of battery manufacture workers. For this study ninety battery manufacture workers were selected and divided in three groups depending upon duration of lead exposure. Group I - workers with duration of lead exposure 1-5 years, Group II - workers with duration of lead exposure 6-10 years and Group III - workers with duration of lead exposure more than 10 years. Each group consisted of thirty workers. Thirty age matched healthy control subjects were taken for comparison. Demographic, occupational and clinical data were collected by using questionnaire and interview. The venous blood samples were collected from the study groups and normal healthy control group. At the time of blood collection random urine samples were collected in amber coloured bottles. The biochemical parameters were estimated by using standard assay procedures. Statistical analysis of the data was done using independent student't' test for parametric variables. Values were expressed as mean ± standard deviation (SD). P values of 0.05 or less were considered to be statistically significant. The blood lead levels and urinary lead levels of all workers were significantly increased (P < 0.001) in proportion to the duration of lead exposure as compared to controls. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure were significantly raised (P < 0.001) in all three study groups of battery manufacture workers as compared to controls. Serum Calcium, Ionized calcium, phosphorus were significantly decreased (P < 0.001) in all the three study groups. Serum vitamin D levels were lowered (P < 0.01) and serum PTH was increased (P < 0.01) in workers as compared to controls. The results of this study clearly indicate that the absorption of lead is more in these workers which adversely affects blood pressure, disturbs calcium and phosphorus metabolism which further impairs mineralization of bone resulting in decreased bone mineral density observed in these workers. Lead toxicity is still persistent in battery manufacture workers though they are using sophisticated techniques in these industries. There is a need to protect the workers from the health hazards of occupational lead exposure. © 2012 Association of Clinical Biochemists of India.

The kidneys receive arterial supply from the paired renal arteries. During routine dissection we observed in an adult male cadaver the following variation. Bilateral variation is seen in 5%-10% of individuals. The right kidney was receiving 3 renal arteries. 2 were arising from the abdominal aorta just below the origin of superior mesenteric artery and the 3rd artery was arising from aorta, below the origin of Inferior Mesenteric artery. The left kidney received 2 renal arteries, both arising from aorta at a lower level than right, just below the origin of superior mesenteric artery.On the right side, 2 renal veins were independently draining into inferior vena cava. It is important to be able to depict all accessory renal arteries, because accessory renal arteries are end arteries.The main clinical significance of arteries entering the lower pole is that they may obstruct the ureter and lead to hydronephrosis. It is important to consider these results while using non-angiographic, non-invasive methods for investigating renal artery stenosis, as well as, during surgeries related to renal arteries.

Background: Physical fitness is the prime criterion for survival, to achieve any goal and to lead a healthy life. Effect of exercise to have a good physical fitness is well known since ancient Vedas. Physical fitness can be recorded by cardiopulmonary efficiency test like Physical Fitness Index (PFI %) which is a powerful indicator of cardiopulmonary efficiency. Regular exercise increases PFI by increasing oxygen consumption. Residential school children are exposed to regular exercise and nutritious food under the guidance. Aims and Objectives: Our study is aimed to compare the physical fitness index status and anthropometric parameters in Residential Sainik (n=100) school children compared to Non-Residential (n=100) school children (aged between 12-16 years) of Bijapur. Material and Methods: PFI was measured by Harvard Step Test [1]. The Anthropometrical parameters like Height (cms), Weight (Kg), Body Surface Area (BSA in sq.mts), Body Mass Index (BMI in Kg/m2), Mid Arm Circumference (cms), Chest Circumference (cms) and Abdominal Circumference (cms) were recorded. Results: Mean score of PFI(%), Height(cms), Weight(Kg), BSA(sq.mts), BMI(Kg/m2), Mid Arm Circumference(cms), Chest Circumference (cms) and Abdominal Circumference (cms) were significantly higher (p=0.000) in Residential school children compared to Non Residential school children. In conclusion regular exercise and nutritious diet under the guidance increases the physical fitness and growth in growing children. © Journal of Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences University.

Anxiety leads to derangement in physical and mental health. Anxiety levels are more in full time housewives than working women. There is a need for simple, easy treatment for anxiety to alleviate the burden on health caused by anxiety. Yoga is among the top ten complementary and alternative medicine therapies. Our study aimed to determine the anxiety levels in apparently healthy full time housewives and to study the effects of Yoga on anxiety levels among them. Present study is a comparative interventional study. Study was conducted on 50 apparently healthy full time housewives (20-50 years) who attended one month Yoga camp. Hamilton Anxiety (HAMA) Scale was used to evaluate anxiety levels before and at the end of the yoga camp. Statistical analysis was done by Paired t test using SPSS 9.0. The baseline pulse rate, SBP, DBP were 82.90±4.25 bpm, 124.84±11.022 mm Hg, 85.20±10.81 mm Hg respectively. After four weeks yoga camp there was statistically significant lowering of pulse rate (77.58±3.86 bpm), SBP (117.92±6.76 mm Hg), DBP (78.68±6.62 mm Hg). Before yoga training, percentage distributions of subjects with mild, moderate and severe anxiety were 6%, 18% and 76% respectively. At the end of four week yoga training, percentage distributions of subjects with mild, moderate and severe anxiety were 44.23%, 19.23% and 36.53% respectively. There was highly significant (p=0.000) difference in the mean values of total score before (33.71±4.90) and after (26.93±4.53) yoga. These results indicate that there was a reduction in the severity of anxiety from severe to moderate and mild indicating decrease in anxiety following yoga. Based on the results of our study, we conclude that regular yogic practices and adapting and implementing the principals and philosophy of yoga in day to day life may decrease the anxiety level.
