6th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Department of Orthopaedics, Trauma and Sports Medicine

Monday, 12 June 2017 11:16

The 6th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Department of Orthopaedics, Trauma and Sports Medicine, in collaboration with the Association of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeons of Malta was held on Saturday 27th May, 2017 at the Salini Resort, Salina Bay.

Present were Post Graduate Training Co-ordinator Mr. Joseph N. Borg, with Mr. Thomas Azzopardi and  Dr. Michael Buttigieg as judges.  The various orthopaedic surgeons who attended had an opportunity to listen to the various high quality presentations by Higher and Basic level Specialist trainees, and other health care professionals on a variety of related topics.

A prize trophy was given to  the winner together with a full year subscription for an International Orthopaedic Surgeon Journal.

Technoline Ltd. was the sponsor for this medical education event.

 

Honey Analysis

Wednesday, 26 April 2017 12:06

Honey Analysis

Prof. Everaldo Attard and Mr Adrian Bugeja Douglas from the University of Malta have recently published a chapter in a book about Maltese Honey. Honey Analysis has 15 chapters divided into two sections: one section that is dedicated to the analysis of bioactive, physicochemical, and microbiological compounds and another that addresses techniques for the detection of residues and heavy metals. The book was complied with chapters by authors from nine countries (Brazil, Chile, Italy, Malta, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Serbia, and Turkey) and at least three continents (South America, Europe, and Oceania). The topics discussed here are physical-chemical analysis of honey, new methods for amino acid analysis, chemical residues, heavy metals, phenolic content and bioactive components, microbiological analysis, antimicrobial activity, and honey as functional food. Also there are notions of trade and characterization of honey in these countries, presenting the reality of the local market of these countries and their perspectives so that we can know more about the techniques used as well as the importance of this activity for each country. This may facilitate the use of innovative techniques that may enable increased competitiveness and the world honey trade.

Chapter Abstract

Physicochemical Characterization of Maltese Honey

Abstract

The Maltese Islands are renowned for the production of genuine honey from different floral sources depending on the season and the location of the apiary. Honey samples were collected directly from local beekeepers over a period of 4 years. Each sample was coded and the details provided by the beekeepers were recorded. A total of 259 samples were collected. The distribution of the apiaries was also considered for the three honey seasons: spring, summer and autumn. All samples were tested for the parameters according to the EU Directive on Honey (2001/110/EC) and the Harmonised Methods of the International Honey Commission (2009). The samples were analysed for consistency (by appearance), moisture content and Brix (by refractometry), colour index, diastase, proline and hydroxymethylfurfural (by spectrophotometry), pH and electrical conductivity (by pH/conductivity meters), salinity (chloride meter), free acidity (by titrimetry), polyphenols (by the Folin-Ciocalteu test), sugar content (high performance liquid chromatography), antioxidant activity (by DPPH and FRAP) and antimicrobial activity. The Maltese honey can be classified into three seasons with distinctive physicochemical characteristics. Honey originating from particular season showed significantly different values for specific parameters. Typically, high sucrose content is found in spring honey and a high conductivity in autumn honey.

An ancient apiary in Malta, dating from the Punic era. The jars used to be placed in the wall holes. The beekeepers used to enter from the small door to add extensions to the back of the jars.

 

MHSA at the MDRA for charity in Hal Far in aid of Puttinu Cares.

Thursday, 06 April 2017 08:03

On 31st March 2017,  MHSA students took part in the MDRA for Charity event, at the Malta Drag Racing Raceway in Hal-Far, in aid of Puttinu Cares.  The MHSA set up a stand during the event and offered free health checks including glucose monitoring tests which were sponsored by Technoline Ltd

The event was well attended by members of the public who  together with  Motorsport clubs in Malta enjoyed a fun-filled day. Proceeds collected during this event were in aid of Puttinu Cares.

The Puttinu Cares Cancer Support Group was set up in 2002 and began from an idea and a desire to offer a holistic approach of care for families with children suffering from cancer.
