Objective: The purpose of the study to assess the relationship between oral health and the general health of individuals especially tooth loss and the systemic illness. Materials and Methods: A retrospective study of 804 digital orthopantomograms (OPGS) taken of patients, age ranging between 20 and 70 years, who presented to treatment at the Regional Dental Center, AL-Qassim, Saudi Arabia between 2018 and 2019. The OPGS and dental records were reviewed for missing teeth among patients with systemic illness. Results: We found a high prevalence of tooth loss in hypertension (10.63), DM (9.62), hypothyroidism (6.79) and Asthma (6.35). Conclusion: This study reported a high prevalence of tooth loss among the patients with systemic illness rather than the patients with no systemic illness. The presence of more than one illness and older age patients showed a high prevalence of tooth loss. These findings clarify the importance of the effect of the systemic health on the oral health.

Questionnaire which was validated by experts was the instrument used for data collection. Some of the major findings is that there is a positive relationship between promotion and employee commitment in the five selected manufacturing firms in South-East, Nigeria (r =.875; p = .000>0.05, n=895); there is a positive relationship between regular payment of salary and employees Productivity in the five selected manufacturing firms in South-East, Nigeria (r =.745; p = .000>0.05, n=895). The study concluded that there is a positive relationship between promotion and employee commitment, regular payment of salary and employee productivity in selected bakeries in South-East, Nigeria. Given the nature of the industry work environment, ensuring justice or fairness in bakery industries may be an incentive system. Consequent upon the findings, some recommendations were made; Job promotion is an important element that influences employee commitment. It is recommended that manufacturing organizations should emphasize more on job promotion to enhance higher employee commitment that will engender high productivity. It is also recommended that the salary and remuneration packages of the industry should be competitive with other sectors which makes them recruit and source qualified and skilled employees.

A group of neoplasms that share the characteristic light microscopic appearance of being composed of relatively small, round to round-spindled, monotonous, seemingly undifferentiated cells. It comprises all significant categories of neoplasms- carcinomas, sarcomas, lymphomas, and neuroendocrine- neuroectodermal tumors. Hence microscopic similarity between them and the diagnosis in routine histologic examination extremely difficult. This heterogeneous group of lesions becomes a diagnostic challenge. The diagnosis depends on clinical, radiological, pathological and genetic features. Each lesion has its own has distinctive features but histopathologically termed as ‘round cell tumors’. This article provides an insight into this group of intriguing round cell lesions, which are characterized by varied histopathological features and their associated confirmatory immuno-histochemical markers for a reliable and a consistent diagnosis.

Relationship of the Environmental Condition with the Presence of Leptospira in Rats in Flood Prone Areas in Makassar City
Cases of leptospirosis in Indonesia increased dramatically in 2018 by 895 cases with 148 death cases due to leptospirosis in 2018. Risk factors were found in more than half of leptospirosis events including environmental conditions, the presence of rodents, waste water disposal, waste disposal facilities, history of contact with rats, presence of rivers, and history of flooding. Previous research has reported the finding of mice containing Leptospira in post-flood areas in Indonesia. Therefore this study aimed to determine the relationship of environmental conditions with the presence of Leptospira bacteria in rats in flood-prone areas. This research is an analytic study with cross sectional approach. Data obtained by observing the type of rat, the process of surgery and taking rats, rats calculation of success traps and observation of environmental conditions. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test was carried out in the Microbiology Laboratory of Hasanuddin University Hospital. Statistical tests with fisher exact were used to determine the relationship of environmental conditions with the presence of Leptospira bacteria in rats. The results of this study found 100% Mus musculus, 53.3% Rattus norvegicus, 22.2% Rattus tanezumi infected with Leptospira bacteria. The results showed the presence of sewers with stagnant water (0,000), presence of standing water other than sewers (0,026), presence of sewage waste (0,005), presence of waste other than ditches (0,007), smell of rat urine (0,049) and pH of stagnant water the optimum (0.001) with a p-value < 0,05. We recommend to the Paccerakkang inhabitants who reside in flood-prone areas, to always maintain environmental conditions such as cleaning the environment suspected of being a habitat for rats.
