The Act of Grandparenting: Cross Cultural Comparisons between Zambia and The Netherlands

Francis Sichimba*

This study, using a retrospective design, investigated grandparental involvement in child care comparing Zambia and the Netherlands. Four hypotheses were formulated using nationality, family size, social economic status, attachment security as independent variables. These hypotheses were tested on a sample of 411 undergraduate students from the University of Zambia and the University of Leiden, Netherlands. Results indicated that grandparental involvement in child care was prevalent in both Zambian and Dutch samples.

Research Article
Is there a Relationship between Poor Iron Status and The Severity of Depression? A Study carried out on Turkish Women Living in Germany

Vahdet Gul*,Cihat Sen, Abdülkadir Coban

Iron is a major player in multiple processes in the body and is needed for the function of various enzymes and coenzymes including cytochrome C, catalase, and aromatic amino acid hydroxylases. Iron provides the delivery of oxygen through hemoglobin to the body tissues. In addition, iron is also found in myoglobin and other iron enzymes that are required to use oxygen for the production of cellular energy. Iron balance is dependent on the body’s iron stores, absorption and losses. Approximately, two-thirds of body iron is found mainly in the functional part of hemoglobin in the red blood cells.

Case Report

Takashi Kasahara, MD, PhD*, Kayako Nitta, MD, Hidenori Kanke, MD, Yuji Koyama, MD, PhD, Minoru Toyokura MD, PhD

Sneddon’s syndrome (SS) is a rare clinical entity characterized by livedo reticularis (LR) and cerebrovascular disease. This disease is thought to bear some relationship with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), but the prognosis of SS is more serious than that of APS due to recurrence of cerebral infarction, migraine, and progressive cognitive impairment. We present the case of a 49-year-old woman with diffuse LR of the feet, migraine-type headache, left hemiplegia, and mental deterioration.
