Background: Acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous unit. Ductal hyperkeratinization, increased secretion of sebum, and colonization of Propionibacterium Acnes (P. acnes) around the pilosebaceous gland are among the factors responsible for the etiopathogenesis of acne vulgaris. Interleukin- (IL-) 19 is a cytokine expressed by epithelial cells with proinflammatory stimulation. A distinctive feature of IL- 19 is their ability of giving positive feedback loop to amplify themselves; once they are activated in inflammatory process, they will continuously produce the cytokine. The study aimed to identify the relation between blood levels of IL-19 and acne vulgaris. Methods: 36 acne patients and 12 healthy subjects were included in our study. All of patients and controls were subjected to full history, full general and dermatological examination. Serum IL-19 level was measured from each subject using quantitative sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) serum kits. Results: There was no statistical significance difference between the cases and controls in age and sex.Serum Interleukin 19 level is highly significant increased in patients with acne compared to controls. Serum IL-19 level was statistically significant with age of patients, disease duration and site of lesion. Conclusion: Interleukin 19 is higher in acne compared to controls. level of IL-19 positively correlated with age of patients and disease duration, that was statistically significant

Measles is one of the five diseases which becomesa leading cause of child mortality in the world. Measles in East Java from 2014 to 2017 has increased from 762, 2367, 3913, to 4936 cases. The problem is that measles remains endemic in Indonesia and Indonesiahas poor quality of a Case-Based Measles Surveillance(CBMS) system implementation which leads to the lack of epidemiological information.Aim: This study purposes toevaluateCase-Based Measles Surveillance system in East Java Province in 2018 based on the attributes of simplicity, flexibility, data quality, acceptability, timeliness, representativeness, and stability.Method:This studywas a descriptive study which utilized a qualitative approach in analyzing the data.Result:The evaluation results of CBMS system implementedin East Java based on the following attributes were: simplicity (officer hadnever received any training and there wasonly one officer, thus the quality of the officerwas belowstandard),flexibility (no change), data quality (completeness only reached 16%), acceptability (regarding the implementation of CBMS by the district government, only 29% met the targets, 79% did not meet the targets, 5% did not implement CBMS, and no data from the hospitals or the private sectors), timeliness (on-time 5.7% ), representativeness (lack of accurate information), and stability (less reliable).Conclusion:The CMBS system implementedis complicated, less acceptable, less representative, less timeliness, and not stable.

Hospital Information System (HIS) has an important role in clinical and administrative services to achieve quality services. However, monitoring and evaluation are necessary to find out how the benefits of HIS in the hospital work unit.This study aimed to evaluate the Hospital Information System using the HOT-Fit method in a hospital in Central Sulawesi Province.This type of research was descriptive quantitative. The sample in this study were all officers who used HIS in Undata Hospital, Central Sulawesi Province, amounting to 171 people. Sampling using a total sampling method. The data was collected using a questionnaire with a Guttman scale. The evaluation data obtained were analyzed statistically by showing the frequency distribution of each variable.The perceptions of HIS officers were as follows: respondents who had good perceptions based on human factors were 64.9%, respondents who had good perceptions based on organizational factors were 88.3%, and respondents who had good perceptions based on technological factors were 86.0%. The human, organizational, and technological factors in the SIRS of Undata Hospital, Central Sulawesi Province, were already good but there were still shortcomings for old users, and the SIRS application suddenly got errors

Introduction: Pneumothorax occur most during neonatal age than other age of life in
human being, this more related to high morbidity and death rate. It started form damage
to alveoli that more distended. The air seepages lengthways of the perivascular sheath of
connective tissue inside to the pleural space, The aim of our study is to assessment of
prevalence, recognize the danger factors and to define the clinical features, treatment and
consequence of neonates that have pneumothorax and determine the fate of neonates
after treatments.
Method: Prospectively collected data from newborn infants with pneumothorax observed
and treated at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in al immamian alkadhomain
medical city, Sociodemographic data of neonates, clinical features of pneumothorax and
treatment of pneumothorax. Finally, assessment the fate of neonate assessed.
Results: A cross section descriptive study on 41 neonates mean age (34.6 ± 3) weeks
most age group 31 – 40 weeks 85% and weight (2 ± 0.7) kg most neonates (49%) with
2.1 – 3 kg, 34% females and 66% males, 61% of neonates are single parity, 71% of
neonates not need to antenatal steroid, while 56% of neonates delivered by CS, 71% of
neonates with Apgar score less than 7 in first 1 min., Significant association between
sociodemographic variables and clinical features as show in table 4; 52% of right
pneumothorax occur in male, 88% of left pneumothorax occur in male and 100% of
bilateral pneumothorax occur in male. 57% of RDS occur females while 43% of RDS in
male. 100% of TTN occur in single parity. 67% of pneumonia occur at age group 21- 30
week. Significant association between sociodemographic variables and treatment and fate
as show in table 5; 56% of neonate’s need C-pap were females and 44% were males.
56% of neonates need O2 therapy with weight 2.1-3kg, 26% of them that need O2 therapy
with weight 1-2 kg. 55% of alive neonates are males and 45% are females, 72% of single
parity neonates still alive.
Conclusion: Pneumothorax is moderately common in the NICU. The fate of neonates are
71% still alive and 29% dead. Pneumothorax itself was not a factor of death, probably due
to the sufficient and rapid therapy used in the NICU.

The steering while sitting in the driver's seat is one of the most basic and important driving performances. The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics of sitting symmetry and steering accuracy of stroke drivers compared to healthy drivers, and to examine the correlation between them.Fifteen stroke drivers and fifteen healthy drivers participated in this study. Both group performed the large and small s-curve driving during five minute. Accuracy index (AI) was measured by comparing the performance line that drove along large s-curve and small s-curve (target line). Symmetry index (SI) was calculated by difference of right and left seat pressure.The steering AI of stroke drivers was significantly lower than that of healthy adult drivers (p <0.05), and the AI of small S-curves was significantly lower than that of large S-curves (p <0.05). The sitting SI of stroke drivers was significantly greater than that of healthy driver (p <0.05). Also, AI of stroke driver showed significant correlation with SI in both S-curve. However, healthy drivers had no significant correlation between SI and AI (p> 0.05). SI and AI are valid variables for evaluating the stroke driver's driving ability in off-road environment.
