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.
BACKGROUND Several studies in the past have reported inconclusive evidences on association of smoking and migraine. Nevertheless, no study so far reported association of smokeless tobacco with migraine. The objective of this study was to examine the association of smoked and smokeless tobacco use with migraine. METHODS A hospital-based case-control study(More)

The global burden from cancer is rising, especially as low-income countries like Bangladesh observe rapid aging. So far, there are no comprehensive descriptions reporting diagnosed cancer group that include hematological malignancies in Bangladesh. This was a multi-center hospital-based retrospective descriptive study of over 5000 confirmed hematological(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)
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)
Weed infestation is a common problem in agriculture that adversely affects crop production. Given severe constraints on the budget of many land-grant universities due to the economic downturn, outreach services have taken a hit. To adapt to current economic climate without adversely affecting the quality of outreach program for weed management, we present a(More)
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)
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)
We describe a stochastic model to compute in vivo protein turnover rate constants from stable-isotope labeling and high-throughput liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry experiments. We show that the often-used one- and two-compartment nonstochastic models allow explicit solutions from the corresponding stochastic differential equations. The resulting(More)

OBJECTIVE Recent epidemiological studies reported an association between maternal intake of acetaminophen (APAP) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in their children. However, none of these studies demonstrated causality. Our objective was to determine whether exposure to APAP during pregnancy result in hyperkinetic dysfunctions in(More)
