Impact of COVID-19 on Medical Laboratory Workers in Libya: A Cross-Sectional Study

Background and objectives. Healthcare workers are more vulnerable to COVID-19 infection than the general population due to frequent contact with infected individuals. However, Medical Lab workers at a higher risk of this contagious disease than those who work in other departments. This study aimed to analyze the perspectives of medical lab workers, in terms of the challenges, financial implications, fears, motivation, and satisfaction from organizational processes and policies adopted, amid the COVID-19 crisis. Methods.  A cross-sectional study was conducted from March 25 to April 9, among Libyan Medical Lab workers in three public hospital laboratories. Data on participant characteristics were collected with a specifically designed questionnaire. The responses were recorded on a five-point Likert Scale (1 = strongly disagree, 2 = disagree, 3 = neutral, 4 = agree and 5 = strongly agree). The statistical analysis was performed using the Microsoft Excel 2019. Frequency and percentages were calculated for gender, experience, and designation while descriptive results based on the responses were also recorded. Results. The study yielded a sample size of 90 participants. Of these 66 (73%) reported that the current lifestyle adopted during the pandemic was not better than the traditional one. Around 72 (80%) of the responses were not fear of employment termination amid the COVID-19 crisis. However, financial challenges were being faced by 63 (70%) respondents. The quality of family life was improved in 48 (53%) cases while 54 (60%) were of the view that their social activities at work have suffered. Furthermore, 60 (67%) did not feel the same level of motivation to come to work every morning during the outbreak, as before. Similarly, 60 (67%) were not satisfied with the measures taking by the management during the outbreak. Conclusion. The results of this survey provide a laboratorians perspective during times of crisis and provide us certain lessons to plan for such unexpected circumstances in the future

Serological study on the prevalence of malaria in samples from foreign workers in Tripoli, Libya

This study was primarily conducted to investigate the prevalence of imported malaria in a sample of foreign workers (n-1038) in Tripoli during the period from May 2006 to June 2007. A comprehensive review of malaria epidemiology in Libya in the last two decades was also given. All samples were tested serologically using Malaria Rapid Diagnostic test and then examined using blood film technique. Results showed that only 10 samples (1%) were tested positive for both malaria rapid diagnostic test and blood film. Nine of those infected were identified as Plasmodium falciparum and one as Plasmodium vivax. This study confirms that the prevalence of malaria in legal foreign workers is low and the risk of re-introducing or transmitting malaria in the northern areas of the country is remote. It also gives no good reason for including malaria test among those requested for issuing health certificates to foreign workers. The use of malaria Rapid Diagnostic test for malaria detection in this study was proved to be practical and reliable. Although, the situation of imported malaria in Libya imposes no immediate threat to re-emerging of malaria in the country however, continuous surveillance and monitoring particularly to the southern regions and populations have to be taken in a great consideration. An updated new map of malaria vectors distribution in Libya is urgently needed to be able to outline areas of high risk of malaria transmission.

Tocotrienols Activate Nrf2 Nuclear Translocation and Increase the Antioxidant- Related Hepatoprotective Mechanism in Mice Liver

The most common preparation of tocotrienols is the tocotrienol-rich fraction (TRF). This study aimed to investigate whether TRF induced liver Nrf2 nuclear translocation and influenced the expression of Nrf2-regulated genes. Methods: In the Nrf2 induction study, mice were divided into control, 2000 mg/kg TRF and diethyl maleate treated groups. After acute treatment, mice were sacrificed at specific time points. Liver nuclear extracts were prepared and Nrf2 nuclear translocation was detected through Western blotting. To determine the effect of increasing doses of TRF on the extent of liver nuclear Nrf2 translocation and its implication on the expression levels of several Nrf2-regulated genes, mice were divided into 5 groups (control, 200, 500 and 1000 mg/kg TRF, and butylated hydroxyanisole-treated groups). After 14 days, mice were sacrificed and liver RNA extracted for qPCR assay. Results: 2000 mg/kg TRF administration initiated Nrf2 nuclear translocation within 30 min, reached maximum level around 1 h and dropped to half-maximal levels by 24 h. Incremental doses of TRF resulted in dose-dependent increases in liver Nrf2 nuclear levels, along with concomitant dose-dependent increases in the expressions of Nrf2-regulated genes. Conclusion: TRF activated the liver Nrf2 pathway resulting in increased expression of Nrf2-regulated cytoprotective genes.
