Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) or the measurement of drug concentrations in plasma, serum or blood, aims to improve clinical activity, avoid toxicity, and reduce the costs of drug treatment. Specific conditions for TDM to be reasonably applied include the availability of a validated assay, a considerable inter-individual pharmacokinetic variability, a(More)
BACKGROUND India has the second largest diabetic population (61 million) and tobacco users (275 million) in the world. Data on smoking cessation among diabetic patients are limited in low and middle income countries. The objective of the study was to document the effectiveness of diabetic specific smoking cessation counseling by a non-doctor health(More)
Genotypic correlation coefficient and path coefficient analysis was carried out in 109 genotypes of multicut fodder sorghum between fourteen fodder yields and yield related characters for each cut and subjected to pooled analysis. The result showed that all the characters except hydrocyanic acid, total soluble solids and crude protein had positive(More)

Vehicular ad hoc networks(VANET) is the most widely used realization of mobile ad hoc networks (MANET). Vehicular communication was safety on roads, because million of lives were lost and much more injuries have been incurred due to car crashes. Safety messages which are of highest priority need to be delivered to the destination node on time to prevent(More)
Considering the adverse health effects of smoking, the American Diabetes Association recommends smoking cessation among diabetic patients (1). One-year follow-up data on smoking cessation among diabetic patients are not available (2). We conducted this study to find the effectiveness of diabetes-specific smoking cessation counseling by a nondoctor health(More)
Servo drives and drives for position control require a high dynamic on speed control. In this paper, model predictive direct speed control (MP-DSC) is proposed, which overcomes limitations of cascaded linear controllers. The novel concept predicts the future current and speed states in discrete steps and it selects plant inputs which depend mainly on the(More)
Cement manufacturing industry is one of the carbon dioxide emitting sources besides deforestation and burning of fossil fuels. The global warming is caused by the emission of green house gases, such as CO 2 , to the atmosphere. Among the greenhouse gases,CO 2 contributes about 65% of global warming. The global cement industry contributes about 7% of(More)
