It's cause of teratogenic congenital infection. As a result, it's a significant public-health issue. Congenital CMV (cCMV), the most public non-genetic cause of sensorineural hearing loss, is linked to maternal infection. CMV can also induce cerebral palsy and cognitive impairment. CMV is spread through contact with bodily fluids from a viral carrier. Viruses transmission is higher after primary infection, and it increases with gestational age. When infection develops before 20 weeks, however, severe fetal consequences are more likely. Past infection does not provide the mother immunity or provide protection to the fetus. On ultrasonography, CMV can cause cerebral or extracerebral abnormalities, as well as fetal development limitation and loss. Seroconversion in pregnancy (de novo appearance of virus-specific immunoglobulin G (IgG) in the serum of previously seronegative pregnant women) or the detection of specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) and IgG antibodies in association with low IgG avidity should be used to diagnose primary maternal CMV in pregnancy. The effective method for preventing viral infection is to provide pregnant women with hygiene advice and education. Vaccines, antiviral medicines, and immunoglobulins have all had their roles expanded throughout time.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> masar almousawi Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of University of Kerbala https://journals.uokerbala.edu.iq/index.php/UOKJ/article/view/906 Tue, 14 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Synthesis and Antibacterial Activity of 1,3-Oxazepine Derivatives Starting From L-Ascorbic Acid https://journals.uokerbala.edu.iq/index.php/UOKJ/article/view/921 <p>In this work, an aldehyde precursor has been prepared by four subsequent steps starting from L-ascorbic acid. This compound was reacted with different amines namely; phenyl hydrazine, aniline, <em>p</em>-toluidine, <em>p</em>-methoxyaniline, <em>p</em>-acetamidoaniline and 2-aminopyrimidene to afford six imine derivatives. Finally, the cycloaddition of Schiff bases to four separate acid anhydrides; maleic anhydride, 2,3-dichloromaleic anhydride, 3-nitrophthalic anhydride and phthalic anhydride produced 24 oxazepine derivatives. All synthesized compounds were characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy, <sup>1</sup>H NMR spectroscopy, micro-elemental analysis and TLC. The antibacterial activity of 1,3-oxazepines against <em>S. aureus</em> and <em>E. coli</em> were studies using disk diffusion method.</p> Rasha Jwad, Abdul Jabbar Kadir Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of University of Kerbala https://journals.uokerbala.edu.iq/index.php/UOKJ/article/view/921 Tue, 14 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Determination of Major, Minor and Trace Elements in Cigarette Tobacco Samples from Karbala, Iraq https://journals.uokerbala.edu.iq/index.php/UOKJ/article/view/903 <p>In recent years, cigarette smoking has become a major health issue, especially in terms of active and passive smoking exposure to chemicals released from the combustion of tobacco. The determination of trace elements in biological and environmental samples is very important since they play an important role in physiological processes of human and other living organisms. In this study, sixteen commercial cigarette brands were collected from Karbala, Iraq. The levels of Na, P, K, Fe, Cu, Zn, Sr, Cd, Sn, and Ba were determined in digested tobacco samples by using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES). The range of elemental levels for the 16 tobacco samples were Na (84 – 384 mg/L d.w.), P (1262 – 1687 mg/L d.w.), K (16878 - 30492 mg/L d.w.), Fe (166 - 349 mg/L d.w.), Cu (3 - 10 mg/L d.w.), Zn (18 - 35 mg/L d.w.), Sr (53 - 102 mg/L d.w.), Cd (0.24 – 2.03&nbsp; mg/L d.w.), Sn (25 – 35 mg/L d.w.), Ba (7 – 16 mg/L d.w.). The levels of precision and accuracy for the ICP-MS instrument were confirmed by calculation of the relative standard deviation (%RSD) and percentage recoveries (%R) using ten replicate measurements of a "pooled" tobacco sample, and certified reference materials (CRMs). The results show a good range of precision (0.8 – 2.77 %RSD) and accuracy (90 -107 %R) was obtained.</p> Baker A.

Several ceramic powders were used, such as sand, metakaolin, and iron oxide, with a granular size not exceeding 74 microns.</p> <p>The results of the examination of the research samples showed an increase in the values ​​of hardness and wear resistance compared to the original sample (AA 6061without addition).</p> <p>The hardness and microscopy results also showed that temperature and time have an effect on diffusion rates. This relationship was not linear, as the aspect ratio of both the hardness and wear resistance values ​​decreased with increasing temperature diffusion time.</p> <p>The results also confirmed that the hardness and wear resistance of AA 6061 samples are proportional to the hardness value of the ceramic powder scattered in it.</p> RIDHA MAGEED Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of University of Kerbala https://journals.uokerbala.edu.iq/index.php/UOKJ/article/view/918 Thu, 16 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Evaluation of Chemical Properties and Detection of Adulteration in Cheeses Sold in Babylon Province. https://journals.uokerbala.edu.iq/index.php/UOKJ/article/view/907 <p>The Study was conducted&nbsp; at the laboratories of the Department of Animal Production Techniques, Al-Musaib Technical College, laboratories of Department of Animal Production Techniques , Food analysis lab in Technical Inistitute . During the period of August 2017 to May 2018.48 samples of cattle cheeses from different origin were&nbsp; collected from four different regions&nbsp; of&nbsp; Babylon province (Hilla ,Mahawil ,Musiab ,Alexandria); these samples were divided into four groups according to types of these cheeses and each group was sub-divided into (12)&nbsp; pattern according to the mark . they were group (A) contain (12) marks of imported semi soft cheeses (president, dalal, happycow, vonk, kibi, teama, la vache qui rit, puck, abu alwalad, nadec, sabah, al captin), group (B)contain (12)&nbsp; marks of imported slice cheeses (hamoda, mersin, kraft, alrawabi, casar, american, heritage, danube, almarai, pride, president, nadec,), group (C) contain (12) marks of imported spreadable cheeses,( almarai, anchor, sabah, puck, smile, luna, baf, bukah, damraran, memas, momtaz, kalleh), group (D)contain (12) patterns of locally produced white soft cheeses.

Humans and livestock are also both poisoned by <em>Conium maculatum</em>. Cosequently, <em>Conium</em> can be found growing alongside highways, purple-spotted, glabrous, and up to 3-meter-high , and branching. The leaves are decompounding pinnately like several edible and medicinal herbs. <em>Coniine </em>and -coniceine, two alkaloids found abundantly, are thought to be responsible for the plant's toxicity and teratogenicity, the relative ratio of distinct <em>Conium </em>alkaloids appears to be affected by several conditions such as temperature, hydration, period, and stage of growth. <em>Conium</em> includes piperidine alkaloids that are structurally similar to nicotine. They bind to nicotinic-type acetylcholine receptors and behave as agonists. The Rats&nbsp; used in this study were all from the Animal Resource Center at the University of Kerbala's College of Veterinary Medicine. In the current experiment, several doses of aqueous extract of conium were used at concentrations of&nbsp; 2, 5&nbsp; and 10 mg/kg to get whatever effect these may have on the liver in Rats. 24 mature rats were divided into 4 groups, six rats for each concentration and control as well. The results showed massive changes on the liver tissues for all groups in comparison&nbsp; with control. However, all groups receiving <em>Conium maculatum</em> extract infusions at rates of 2 , 5 and 10 mg/kg of drinking aqueous revealed toxic changes in the liver in Rats, according to the findings of the research study</p> eman Almaliki Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of University of Kerbala https://journals.uokerbala.edu.iq/index.php/UOKJ/article/view/916 Tue, 14 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Role of Entrepreneurial Marketing In Enhancing Customer Satisfaction Via Marketing Capabilities An exploratory analytical study of the opinions of a sample of administrators and officials in universities (Warith Al-Anbiyaa – AlZehraa - Alkafeel – Alameed https://journals.uokerbala.edu.iq/index.php/UOKJ/article/view/913 <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Abstract</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; This study aims to test the mediating role for the Marketing Capabilities of the organization in the relationship between entrepreneurial marketing and enhancing Customer Satisfaction To achieve this goal the researcher used the descriptive analytical method by relying on the questionnaire, which measures the availability of research variables.
