About faculty of Medicine

The Faculty of Medicine was established in 1973, Tripoli, to contribute in qualifying medical personnel. The Faculty graduated its first batch in 1980.


It is one of the largest faculties at the University of Tripoli. It an important edifice of knowledge, so that during the past four decades this Faculty has contributed to preparing and graduating qualified doctors who had been very successful in performing their assigned role in the medical field in all the hospitals located all over the country. The graduate doctors were able to provide the best health services. The Faculty of Medicine has more than 493 faculty members, most of them are national elements who were among the first batches in this college and who contributed to providing the necessary health services in hospitals, clinics and dispensaries.


Many graduates of this Faculty have been sent to complete their studies abroad and who have proven their capabilities in scientific and clinical achievement with the testimony of many international universities. The Faculty seeks to activate graduate programs in various disciplines. It works to develop the vocabulary of its curricula and teaching methods that keep pace with the requirements of international quality.

Problem facing us in casualty and Opds

Opinion Cough in kids less than 6yrs old whether being with sputum i.e. wet or without i.e. dry and parental asking about any medicine stopping this symptom certainly if being dry i.e. irritating and disturbing sleep. So most studies being done on this subject proved the following: a) It is not wise to suppress cough because it is natural defense mechanism to expel infected mucus i.e. sputum out of the body and clearing the airways to improve oxygenation so never to prescribe antitussive i.e. cough suppressant. b) sputum mucolytic agents and there are many agents their purpose to liquify it and get it watery to be easy expectorated again studies proved that the best muculytic agent is Good Hydration so no need to use except where there is a mucus retention in the lungs like case of brocheictasis. c) WHO recommendation made about 6 yrs back was never to prescribe any cough medicine whether antitussive or mucolytic to kids less than 6 yrs old. Myself and since about 10 years I had not prescribed any cough suppressant to children despite of age but if kids older than 6 years old I do prescribe mucolytic agent made certainly for kids like amydramine syrup which contains antihistamine diphenhydramine and without restrictions. In kids less than 6yrs old again I do prescribe mucolytic made for kids like soolan or Amydramine pediatric syrup in trial to hit 2 birds which are sedating and antihistamine effects and satisfying anxious parents and it does work almost in all cases arabic 6 English 32

Controversies in the Acute Management of High Spinal Cord Injuries, an Update and Opinion

Abstract The incidence of spinal cord injuries is the lowest of all major trauma, with devastating impact on the individual affected. The immediate treatment, though it remains mainly supportive, in many situations will determine the outcome and the cost of health care. Standards of care are unfortunately still lacking, this is mainly due to the existing controversies and lack of effective treatment of the injured cord. The author discusses here some of the controversial points based on literature review and personal observation. arabic 14 English 75

Cellular and molecular etiology of hepatocyte injury in a murine model of environmentally induced liver abnormality

Exposures to a wide variety of environmental substances are negatively associated with many biological cell systems both in humans and rodents. Trichloroethane (TCE), a ubiquitous environmental toxicant, is used in large quantities as a dissolvent, metal degreaser, chemical intermediate, and component of consumer products. This increases the likelihood of human exposure to these compounds through dermal, inhalation and oral routes. The present in vivo study was aimed to investigate the possible cellular and molecular etiology of liver abnormality induced by early exposure to TCE using a murine model. The results showed a significant increase in liver weight. Histopathological examination revealed a TCE-induced hepatotoxicity which appeared as heavily congested central vein and blood sinusoids as well as leukocytic infiltration. Mitotic figures and apoptotic changes such as chromatin condensation and nuclear fragments were also identified. Cell death analysis demonstrates hepatocellular apoptosis was evident in the treated mice compared to control. TCE was also found to induce oxidative stress as indicated by an increase in the levels of lipid peroxidation, an oxidative stress marker. There was also a significant decrease in the DNA content of the hepatocytes of the treated groups compared to control. Agarose gel electrophoresis also provided further biochemical evidence of apoptosis by showing internucleosomal DNA fragmentation in the liver cells, indicating oxidative stress as the cause of DNA damage. These results suggest the need for a complete risk assessment of any new chemical prior to its arrival into the consumer market.
