Rodent animal models of stroke are widely used with brain ischemia inducible by various occlusion methods. Permanent or transient occlusion of the distal portion of the middle cerebral artery (MCAO) offers a reproducible model with low mortality rates, and it is the most likely model of choice for mid- and long-term studies to assess neurorepair or(More)
Stroke represents a global challenge and is a leading cause of permanent disability worldwide. Despite much effort, translation of research findings to clinical benefit has not yet been successful. Failure of neuroprotection trials is considered, in part, due to the low quality of preclinical studies, low level of reproducibility across different(More)
During the first countrywide outbreak of dengue hemorrhagic fever in Bangladesh, we conducted surveillance for dengue at a hospital in Dhaka. Of 176 patients, primarily adults, found positive for dengue, 60.2% had dengue fever, 39.2% dengue hemorrhagic fever, and 0.6% dengue shock syndrome. The Dengue virus 3 serotype was detected in eight patients.
" The readers of this book will find answers to important issues necessary to be addressed for a successful distance education and will be reminded that the success of distance education requires effective use of instructional media, planning for instructional media use, visual communication, audio and motion media, computers as tools for learning, and(More)
Cortical spreading depolarization (CSD) promotes the progression of neuronal injury after cerebral ischemia. However, the mechanisms of propagation of postischemic CSD events are still unclear. In this study we characterized the role of the main neuronal gap junction protein connexin 36 (Cx36) in generating postischemic CSDs. In Cx36-deficient mice and(More)
The research was carried out to study the rate of population-based hospital admissions due to acute lower respiratory infections (ALRIs) and bacterial aetiology of ALRIs in children aged less than five years in Bangladesh. A cohort of children aged less than five years in a rural surveillance population in Matlab, Bangladesh, was studied for two years.(More)
BACKGROUND Tobacco smoking issues in developing countries are usually taught non-systematically as and when the topic arose. The World Health Organisation and Global Health Professional Student Survey (GHPSS) have suggested introducing a separate integrated tobacco module into medical school curricula. Our aim was to assess medical students' tobacco smoking(More)
We report on an exhaustive and systematic study about the photoluminescent properties of nanoporous anodic alumina membranes fabricated by the one-step anodization process under hard conditions in oxalic and malonic acids. This optical property is analysed as a function of several parameters (i.e. hard anodization voltage, pore diameter, membrane thickness,(More)
Converting adult cells from one cell type to another is a particularly interesting idea for regenerative medicine. Terminally differentiated cells can be induced to de-differentiate in vitro to become multipotent progenitors. In mammals these changes do not occur naturally, however exposing differentiated adult cells to synthetic molecules capable of(More)
BACKGROUND There have been few population-based studies of the seroprevalence and correlates of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2) in Japan. METHODS We enrolled a total of 1244 adults, aged 18-59 years, from a population-based cohort in southern Japan, and tested their serum samples using an ELISA kit containing HSV type-specific(More)
