The present study was conducted to investigate antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of Escherichia coli strains isolated from clinical specimens of Jordanian pediatric patients during a five year period 2005-2009. A total of 2259 E. coli strains were isolated from different clinical specimens and tested for their susceptibility to commonly used antimicrobial agents. Overall, high susceptibility rate was observed for nitrofurantoin (90.4%), followed by ciprofloxacin (85.6%), norfloxacin (83.9%), cefotaxime (83.7%), ceftriaxone (82.4%), and gentamicin (80.8%). Lower susceptibility rates were observed for ampicillin (19.8%) followed by amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (26.8%) and cotrimoxazole (31.6%). Nitrofurantoin was highly effective for E. coli with susceptibility rate of 90.4%. In contrast, ampicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and cotrimoxazole were found to be ineffective at in vitro for inhibition of the E. coli of pediatric origin.

In this paper, we propose some conjectures in order to solve one of the questions posed by Bourin regarding a special type of inequalities referred to as subadditivity inequalities in the case of the Hilbert-Schmidt norm. Some of these conjectures are settled affirmatively for special cases in an algorithmic way by using some number theory tools. © 2013 American Institute of Physics.

Background: Knowledge of antimicrobial susceptibility patterns is required to prescribe empirical therapy and formulate guidelines for the treatment of urinary tract infections. This study assesses the etiology and antimicrobial susceptibility of the main uropathogens in Jordanian children. Methods: A retrospective study was conducted on a positive urine cultures taken from children aged below 15 years, who attended as outpatient clinics or inpatient at Princess Rahmah Hospital between January and December/2008. The obtained data analysed and the results were tabulated. Results: A total of 597 isolates were recovered from children with lower urinary tract infections. Uropathogens were isolated more in females (82%) than in males. The most frequent pathogen found was Escherichia coli (72.9%), followed by Klebsiella spp. (19.9%), Proteus spp. (3%), Pseudomonas spp (2%), Staphylococcus aureus (1%), Streptococcus spp (0.7%), and Enterobacter spp. (0.5%). The highest susceptibility rate of E. coli was 100% to both amikacin and ceftriaxone, followed by cefotaxime (89.4%), ciprofloxacin (85.5%), and gentamicin (83.9%). Whereas the lowest susceptibility rates were 27.5%, 21.6% and 16.0% to cotrimoxazole, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and ampicillin respectively. Conclusions: E. coli was the main uropathogen in children patients. The most of E. coli isolates were susceptible to amikacin, ceftriaxone, cefotaxime, ciprofloxacin and gentamicin. Overall cotrimoxazole, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and ampicillin resistance rate was near 75% or more, and this rate was not affected according to the type of urinary infection. This information should be considered when empirical therapy is recommended or prescribed for children with Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) in Jordan. © 2011 DAR Publishers/ University of Jordan.

The concept of logistics systems Lies in the coordination of productive activities, financial, economic and information associated with each other for computing systems technology. The first appearance of these systems was during World War Two to resolve the issue of strategic effects in the field of industry and military affairs as well as to solve the problem of transportation in order to provide troops with military equipment and fuel. The technological logistics system is: Support for these systems, in terms of information and computerized. Lies in two areas: the first is a computer support for decision-making in the logistics systems specific type, and the second lies in the logistical and informational self-management that is implemented through the use of a package of software. This paper aims to provide a general model of the logistical systems and provide study in the application of this system in the area pharmaceutical industry management, we have found that strong information usage lead to strong productivity that aimed to increase revenue from productivity and reduce costs production leading eventually of the work of the technological logistics. © 2005-2011 JATIT & LLS All rights reserved.

The present study was conducted to investigate antimicrobial resistant pattern of Escherichia coli (E. coli) strains isolated from clinical specimens of Jordanian pediatric patients during the period from January to December 2008. A total of 444 E. coli strains were isolated from clinical specimens and tested for their susceptibility to different antimicrobial drugs. Overall, high resistance rate was observed for ampicillin (84%), followed by amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (74.3%), cotrimoxazole (71%), nalidixic acid (47.3%), cephalothin (41%). Lower resistance rates were observed for amikacin (0%) followed by Cefotaxime (11%), Ceftriaxone (11.7%), ciprofloxacin (14.5%), Norfloxacin (16.5%), gentamicin (17.3%) cephalexin (20.9%), Ceftazidime (22.5%), cefixime (29.6%), and cefaclor (32.8%). Ampicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and cotrimoxazole were found to be ineffective at in vitro inhibition of the E. coli of pediatric origin. Amikacin was highly effective for E. coli with susceptibility rate of 100%. The majority of E. coli strains were susceptible to third generation cephalosporins and fluoroquinolones.

the success of audio steganography techniques is to ensure imperceptibility of the embedded secret message in stego file and withstand any form of intentional or un-intentional degradation of secret message (robustness). Crucial to that using digital audio file such as MP3 file, which comes in different compression rate, however research studies have shown that performing steganography in MP3 format after compression is the most suitable one. Unfortunately until now the researchers can not test and implement their algorithm because no standard data set in MP3 file after compression is generated. So this paper focuses to generate standard data set with different compression ratio and different Genre to help researchers to implement their algorithms. © 2015 IEEE.

Objective: Pregnant mothers in the rural areas of Jordan are known to face multiple health risks for their infants. Currently, individuals tend to face barriers to access clinic-based services. Evidence indicates that majority of infant deaths in Jordan occur due to this reason, which can be prevented through provision and promotion of infant care practices through home visits. This study aims to assess the effectiveness of community nurse home visits from the perspectives of community health nurses to improve infant mortality rates within the rural areas of Jordan. Methods: A hundred community health nurses were recruited from the rural areas of Jordan (the response rate was 100%). Quantitative method along with descriptive techniques and Pearson correlation test is utilized for analyzing responses obtained from participants. Results: The majority of community health nurses revealed that the inclusion of community nursing is beneficial for healthcare sector. Approximately, 49% of experienced community nurses revealed that infant mortality rates can be easily controlled through home visits. A significant relationship exists between the increase in community nurse home visits and declined rates of infant mortality. Conclusion: Home visits by community nurses play a crucial role in improving infant mortality rates and health. Various interventions are required to inspect the most efficient strategy to promote infant care practices and reach families living in the rural areas of Jordan. The community health visiting profession needs to embrace the national guidelines to offer safer information to mothers during pregnancy and throughout the initial year of a child's life. © Copyright 2016 by Gazi University Medical Faculty.
