Until today, more than 50 cases of MSF-like illness have been reported in different regions of Europe and Africa, highlighting variable clinical manifestation. Here we report a case of MSF-like illness following a bite from a Hyalomma tick in the Skopje region of North Macedonia.PMID:36268740 | DOI:10.2807/1560-7917.ES.2022.27.42.2200735 (Source: Euro Surveill)

Measurement of Multidimensional Child Poverty: Evidence from North Macedonia
This study describes the multidimensionality of child poverty and produces the first multidimensional child poverty indices in North Macedonia. We use the Alkire-Foster method to develop two age-specific (0 –4 years and 5–17 years) child multidimensional poverty indices (MPIs) by leveraging secondary data from Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) 2018/2019 for North Macedonia and North Macedonia Roma Settlements. We find that the largest part of multidimensionally poor children are deprived wit hin the range 33 − 39% of deprivations and the structure of multidimensional child poverty is similar for less, as wel...

CLL-393 Outcomes of COVID-19 Infections in Patients With Hematological Malignancies in Republic of North Macedonia
Context: Patients with hematological malignancies are at increased risk of complications and adverse outcomes associated with COVID-19, according to current available studies. These patients are particularly vulnerable due to impaired or compromised immune responses caused by treatment or the disease itself. Objective: Our aim was to examine the severity and outcomes of COVID-19 infections among patients with hematological malignancies in Republic of North Macedonia. Design: This is the first retrospective descriptive study on patients with COVID-19 and underlying hematological malignancies in Republic of North Macedonia. ...

CLL-224 Coronavirus Disease Mortality and Outcome in Macedonian Patients With Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia: Single-Center Experience
Context: Patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) may be more predisposed to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) due to age, the nature of the disease, and treatment-related immunosuppression. Objective: The aim of the study was to assess risk factors of the outcome and course of COVID-19 for CLL patients in Macedonia. Design: Retrospective study of patients with CLL and COVID-19 infection in the period of time from the beginning of the pandemic to March 2022. Setting: Individual patient data from 55 CLL patients with COVID-19 infection were analyzed. (Source: Clinical Lymphoma, Myeloma and Leukemia)

Work place and prevalence of COVID-19 in a rural population in Greece
CONCLUSION: The study presents data showing a high prevalence of herd immunity for COVID-19 in a semi-closed area in Greece. These findings might help to understand the characteristics of this second wave, the behaviour and danger of SARS-CoV-2 in rural areas in Greece and Europe generally.PMID:35853536 | DOI:10.22605/RRH6751 (Source: Rural and Remote Health)

IJERPH, Vol. 19, Pages 7691: Prevalence and Associated Factors of Physical Activity among Medical Students from the Western Balkans
vić The student population includes young adults who need nutrition and regular physical activity (PA) for mental, cognitive, and physical development. It is estimated that, globally, only 25&amp;ndash;40% of the university student population is involved in regular PA. To date, no research has been conducted in the Western Balkans to address the PA of medical students. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence and factors influencing PA among medical students from the Western Balkans. A cross-sectional study included 2452 students from 14 medical faculties in five countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia...

Influence of genetic substructuring of statistical forensic parameters on genetic short tandem repeat markers in the populations of Southeastern Europe
CONCLUSION: The comparison of forensic parameters between different subpopulations of Croatia and Southeast Europe indicates that the isolation of individual Croatian subpopulations and rare alleles in their gene pool affect the values of forensic parameters. Specific features of (sub)populations should be taken into account for appropriate sampling of the total population when creating a DNA database of STR markers.PMID:35722693 (Source: Croatian Medical Journal)
