Case Study of Viral Hepatitis Based on Immigration Situation

Image Posted on

Recently wars left the world in shell-shocked with a number of immigrants, huge numbers of people with lack of sanitary condition and hygienic practice give us a danger alarm about children future in whole countries that accepted the immigrates and under immigration system. On the other hand, the tremendous number of refugee’s increases paralleled with a number of wars happened in the last decades. The main target of this work is to focus on viral hepatitis epidemic during immigration time and shed light on this case to solve and find the best solution for it.

Relationship among Heterosis, Combining Ability and SSR Based Genetic Distance in Single Cross Hybrids of Maize (Zea Mays L)

Posted on Updated on

Combining ability and heterosis for different morphological and quality traits were studied under three environments using 10 inbred lines, 45 single cross hybrids and three commercial hybrids as checks at SHIATS, Allahabad, India during monsoon, 2014. Ten simple sequence markers (SSR) were used to quantify genetic distance  which was further used to analyse relationship with combining ability and heterosis in single cross hybrids. Pearson’s correlation and linear regression were analysed to identify the important factors determining heterosis and per se performance of hybrids. Variances due to general combining ability (GCA) and specific combining ability (SCA) were found to be significant for all but their interaction with environments were significant only ..Read more  morphological traits. SSR marker bnlg 1523 was found as a potential marker for discriminating maize inbred lines at molecular level as it has high PIC (0.71) and gene diversity (0.74). Significant positive association were recorded Read more

Breeding Sites of Stomoxys spp (Diptera: Muscidae), a Preliminary Study in the Makokou Region (North-East-Gabon)

Posted on

In order to circumscribe the breeding sites of stomoxes in the Makokou region, eight potentially favorable environments were sampled from January to June 2007 in three habitats: primary and secondary forest (natural environments) and the anthropic environment (artificial or disturbed areas). In the primary forest, three types of substrates were collected: litter, elephant dung, and Cephalophus droppings. In the secondary forest, two types of substrates: litter and monkey droppings. In villages or cities, three substrates constituting of decaying plant material, organic waste from garbage in villages and cow dung were also collected. These materials were placed in emergence cages while awaiting the emergence of adult arthropods. In total, 14517 arthropods emerged, including 11726 stomoxes and 2791 other arthropod specimens. Seven Stomoxys spp were observed and included: S. transvittatus with 8221 (70%) emerged individuals, S. niger with 1679 (14%) observed individuals. However, S. omega (8%); S. inornatus (4%); S. calcitrans (2%); S. niger bilineatus (1.9%); and finally S. xanthomelas (0.1%) emerged in minor proportions. The results obtained in this study indicate that stomoxes can lay their eggs on several types of substrates hence colonizing many areas

Assessment of Natural Killer Cell Subsets in HCV Infection and Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Posted on

In this study, the NK cell CD markers testings were found to be the possibility and potentiality of some types of NK cells to target HCV and HCC immunotherapy

Natural Killer (NK) cells are important for responding to and destroying cells that have become infected with virus and cancer cells. We evaluated the effects of hepatitis C virus (HCV) only infected patients and HCV-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) of Egyptian cases on peripheral blood NK cell subsets CD56bright and CD56Dim NK cells, CD56dim16+, CD56dim16 and with emphasis on the CD3 cells.

On the Existence of Animal Viroids

Posted on

This manuscript is an outgrowth of my discovery of the viroids in 1971, which has been endorsed by the International Committee for the Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) as a new order called Subviral Agents, which now consists of two families and upward of 40 species, all isolated from higher plants. Most of these cause diseases of various crops. fruit trees, or ornamental plants. Here I ask the question why, so far, these plant viroids are not complemented by their counterparts in animals.

Using Technology to Enhance Self-Regulation of Eating Behavior

Posted on

The aim of the current study, derived from Goal Conflict and Duel Process theories, was to investigate if self-regulation in restrained eaters can be enhanced by strengthening the link between desired food stimuli and eating control goal. An iPhone app, employed to prime eating control goals, was utilized to improve eating self-regulation in restrained eaters. During a 7-day intervention, 20 restrained eaters had access to randomly activated, personalized eating control reminders on their iPhone. Self-regulation efficacy, eating behavior (unhealthy food serving sizes and loss of control over eating), and eating efficacy were assessed pre and post intervention. Results suggest that the reminder significantly improved self-regulation behavior (p<.05) and eating-efficacy beliefs (p<.05) in restrained eaters. However, no significant improvements were found for unhealthy food serving sizes and loss of control over eating behavior. Future studies should explore if self-regulation and eating-efficacy translate into decreased serving sizes and loss of eating control longer-term.

Mini robotic labs for testing fly behavior could accelerate neuroscience research

Posted on Updated on

Fruit flies have surprising similarities to humans. The mysteries of a broad range of human conditions can be studied in detail in these organisms; however this often requires the use of expensive custom equipment. team of scientists now present the ethoscope — a cheap, easy-to-use and self-made customizable piece of equipment of their invention that can be used to study flies’ behavior.

Diabetic nephropathy treatment with Losartan

Posted on Updated on

Diabetic nephropathy has turned into the absolute most essential reason for end-organize renal ailment in the USA, Europe and Japan. The most punctual marker of beginning diabetic nephropathy is the change of normoalbuminuria to microalbuminuria at an egg whites discharge rate of 20 μg/min. Human examinations in patients both with and without diabetic kidney ailments have demonstrated that the seriousness of gauge proteinuria is an essential indicator of the rate of loss of renal capacity. Additionally, the diminishment in protein discharge rate when patients with nephropathies are being treated with antihypertensive specialists predicts the viability of consequent renoprotection. Exploratory and clinical perceptions give the method of reasoning to focusing on the renin– angiotensin framework as a renoprotective approach in diabetic and nondiabetic proteinuric nephropathies.
