Abstract Background and objectives: Food handlers could be the main sources of intestinal parasite transmission in case of not observing the hygienic rules. Contamination can be decreased by screening food handlers through physical exam and laboratory tests. The aim of this study was determining the prevalence of intestinal parasites in 2010. Material and Methods: This cross-sectional research was carried out on 500 randomly selected individuals engaged in different food related careers. After filling out the questionnaire sheets, two specimens of feces were collected from each person and tested by brine 30% (floatation) and direct methods. Result: The results show that the prevalence of intestinal parasites is 6%. The highest prevalence is relateted to Giardia lamblia ( 17 4.3%) and the lowest to Hymenolepis nana ( 3 0.6%). in the age group of 60-51 years (11.8%) and individuals who just able to read and write (7.4%) The highest percentage is observed. The Most contamination is reported in butchery staff (25%) and the lowest in people worked in butlerchr('39')s pantry, without parasitic infections. Conclusion: The prevalence of intestinal parasitic infections are high relatively, especially pathogenic protozoan therefore, it is important be careful about health status of these individuals and their role in the spread of pollution.

Abstract Background and Objective: C - reactive protein (CRP) is an acute phase protein produced in liver. It is less than 5 mg per deciliter in the serum and body fluids of normal individuals, but it is increased suddenly within a few hours following inflammatory reaction. In bacterial and viral infections, active rheumatic fever, acute myocardial infarction and rheumatoid arthritis are also increased. The aim of this study was to investigate CRP level by Qualitative and Quantitative methods. Material and Methods: The CRP of 200 patients was investigated by quantitative and qualitative methods. Qualitative CRP testing was conducted three times by different people, using two kit of bionic and Omega, and then the mean of the results was reported. For quantitative CRP testing, Immunoturbidimetry was used. Results: In qualitative CRP test by Bionic kit: 180 (90%) were negative, 6 (3%) weakly positive, 9 (4.5%) +1 and 5 (2.5 %) were + 2. In qualitative CRP test by Omega Kit: 148 (74%) were negative, 32 (16%) weakly positive, 13 (6.5%) +1, 4 (2%) +2 and 3 (1.5%) were +3. A high percentage of Qualitative results, which were weakly positive, became negative by Quantitative methods. The Qualitative results of +1 and the next became positive by Quantitative methods. Conclusion: It seems that in the early stages of inflammatory disease, quantitative methods are preferred to qualitative methods. Also, in cases that the CRP test results are weakly positive by qualitative methods, they should be controlled by quantitative methods too. Keywords: CRP CRP Test Quantitative Qualitative CRP Test
