BACKGROUND This study sought to describe and quantify microcirculatory changes in the mucosal surfaces of patients with severe malaria, by direct in vivo observation using orthogonal polarization spectral (OPS) imaging. METHODS The microcirculation in the rectal mucosa of adult patients with severe malaria was assessed by use of OPS imaging, at admission(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of gallstone disease (GSD) in Bangladesh is not known. We evaluated the prevalence of GSD and its relation with certain factors in a rural community in Bangladesh. METHODS A total of 1332 persons aged 15 years and above from two villages were invited to participate in the study; 1,058 (80%) subjects responded after three(More)
Rats were given thallous acetate (5 mg elemental thallium/kg body weight) IP daily for 7 days and prepared for electron microscopy (perfusion-fixation) and for biochemical study. Increased incidence of Golgi zones and electron-dense bodies were observed in the anterior hypothalamus and hippocampus. Sequestrated axons were seen in the hypothalamus. Depletion(More)
The effects of 60- and 90-day administration of a pill containing 0.05 mg ethinylestradiol and 0.5 mg norgestrel on the regional lipid levels of female albino rabbit brains have been investigated. Decreased levels of total lipids, phospholipids, cholesterol, free fatty acids and esterified fatty acids were observed in hypothalamus, hippocampus, amygadaloid(More)
Phosphamidon was detected by thin-layer chromatography (TLC) from various CNS regions of the rats intoxicated with three doses (1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 mg/kg body-weight) intraperitoneally daily for seven days. A distinct dose-related increase in its concentration was observed in all investigated areas of the CNS. Regions with higher gray matter composition showed(More)
This prospective study was done to compare the efficacy of Tamsulosin and Finasteride for the medical treatment of symptomatic Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) at the surgery and urology outpatient department of Mymensingh Medical College Hospital during the period from January 2003 to December 2004. Closely matched 70 patients in the age range of 50-80(More)
The effects of the pesticide, metasystox (O,O-dimethyl-S-2 or Metasystor (ethylsulphinyl) ethylthiophosphate), on various lipid fractions in the discrete areas of the brain were studied. The daily intraperitoneal administration of 4 mg/kg body weight of metasystox for 10 days has depleted the levels of total lipids, phospholipids, cholesterol, esterified(More)
