Introduction: Self-monitoring of fasting, pre and postprandial blood glucose (SMBG) is an integral part of diabetic care. The validity and accuracy of different glucometer types vary significantly and at present ,none of the local authorities carry out pre or post marketing evaluation of these devices in Sri Lanka. This study evaluated the accuracy and validity of 3 types of SMBG devices available over the counter, Device 1, Device 2 and Device 3 against a standard laboratory reference method...

Introduction: High groundwater fluoride (F) is one of the major environmental hazards in the dry zone of Sri Lanka. The prolonged exposure to F at maximum contaminant levels can give rise to lifelong debility and disability among its inhabitants. Objectives: This study investigated the F contamination in groundwater resources in Sri Lanka above recommended Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL) and possibilities to mitigate the health risk. Methods: Groundwater samples (6107) were randomly collected from different geographic areas of the country, and categorised as hazardous, if it exceeded the maximum contaminant level of 4 mg/L (the level at which bone health is compromised)...

Introduction: The ability to predict candidaemia gives a significant advantage to the clinician by enabling pre-emptive treatment to reduce mortality. Objectives: To identify the prevalence, risk factors, and to validate candida colonization index (CI), candida score (CS) to reliably predict the development of candidaemia in the identified study sample. Methods: Cross sectional analytical study of consecutive admissions fulfilling inclusion criteria to intensive care units (ICUs) of Teaching Hospital Karapitiya from 1st December 2015 to 30th March 2016...

Introduction: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) account for nearly half of the overall global burden of disease. Physical inactivity has been reported to be a major independent “modifiable” risk factor for NCDs. Assessment of pattern of physical activity and associated factors would help in informing the participants and policy makers for appropriate interventions. Methodology: A community based cross sectional study in Doiwala block of Dehradun district, in a state of north India, was conducted among early middle-aged adults i...

Introduction: The aim of this study was to assess the epidemiology of VRE colonization among patients in the intensive care units (ICU) of the National Hospital of Sri Lanka (NHSL). Method: A cross sectional study was carried out on 218 patients admitted to 12 ICUs of the NHSL from January to March 2012. Rectal swabs were collected on day 0, 4, 8 and every 4th day thereafter till discharge. Enterococci were isolated on selective media and identified up to species level using standard bacteriological procedures...

Introduction: Although prevalence of HIV infection in Sri Lanka is low, there is a gradual increase in incidence. Effective anti-retroviral treatment (ART) controls the virus, improves immunity and reduces transmission of HIV greatly. Objective: We studied the impact of tuberculosis and response to ART in a cohort of patients with HIV in Sri Lanka. Methodology: A retrospective study of all patients with HIV followed up at the ART clinic at National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Angoda, Sri Lanka was carried out...

Background: The WHO recommended safe upper limit for fluoride in drinking water is 1.5 mg/l. Groundwater sources in many parts of Sri Lanka often exceed this limit. The high fluoride content of groundwater and high environmental temperatures in Vavuniya District predispose to pre-skeletal fluorosis and skeletal fluorosis in adults. Objectives: To identify residents of Vavuniya District with clinical features of pre-skeletal and skeletal fluorosis; to describe their clinical, biochemical and radiographic features; to determine the fluoride content of blood and urine in individuals with established diagnoses, and of their drinking water...

Introduction: Hepatocellular carcinoma is increasing globally. Compared to global patterns, hepatitis B and C are rare in Sri Lanka whilst non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and alcohol are the commonest causes of hepatocellular carcinoma. Objectives: To determine the characteristics of a cohort of Sri Lankan patients with hepatocellular carcinoma of non-viral aetiology. Methods: Details of 550 consecutive patients with hepatocellular carcinoma referred from 2012 to 2017 were collected prospectively...

Introduction: Upper urinary tract urothelial cancers account for 5% of urothelial tumours. In the West, the majority affect the pelvicalyceal system, with pyelocalyceal to ureteric ratio of 3:1. This study aims to describe the clinico-pathological features and outcome of upper urinary tract urothelial cancer treated surgically in a tertiary care unit in Sri Lanka. Methods: A retrospective analysis of all patients who underwent nephroureterectomy for upper urinary tract urothelial cancer at the Urology Unit at National Hospital of Sri Lanka between January1997 and December 2016 was carried out...

Introduction: BK virus nephropathy (BKVN) is an important cause of graft failure in post renal transplant patients. Detection of BK virus replication early enables prevention of BK virus nephropathy. Understanding BK virus epidemiology in post renal transplant patients will be useful in implementing a routine screening programme. Objectives: Objectives were to determine the prevalence of BK virus viruria and viraemia among post renal transplant patients within the first two years of transplantation...

Introduction: Survivin (also known as birc5) is the first protein discovered among the apoptosis-regulating gene family referred to as inhibitor of apoptosis proteins (IAPs). It is expressed and controlled during cellular differentiation and development in human beings. Survivin expression has been shown in a number of cancers and has been associated with cancer development. Objective: In our study, we compared with blood samples as our control and normal- tumoural tissue samples, which obtained from the same tissue of 100 cases diagnosed with colorectal cancer, at Department of Pathology, Istanbul University...

Introduction: Though colorectal cancer is a disease of public health importance, there is little evidence about risk factors of colorectal cancer in South Asians. Objectives: We aimed to determine the behavioral, familial and comorbid illness risk factors for colorectal cancer among Sri Lankan adults. Methods: We conducted this study among 325 participants (65 incident colorectal cancer cases, 130 hospital and 130 community controls) in five major health care institutions and communities in areas with high incidence in Sri Lanka...
