Since the first outbreak of highly pathogenic H5N1 avian inafluenza (HPAI) in Bangladesh in February 2007, a total of 519 disease events have been reported till 22 October 2011. Partial HA gene sequences of 11 selected H5N1 HPAI isolates of 2007 to 2011 were determined and subjected to phylogenetic analysis. The study revealed a recent introduction of clade(More)
Sera from 205 cattle, 17 sheep and 306 goats were tested for Toxoplasma gondii antibodies by using a commercial latex agglutination test. Titres considered diagnostically significant (> or = 1:64) were detected in 16.10% of cattle, 17.65% of sheep and 12.09% of goats. Results indicate that T. gondii infection in domestic ruminants in Bangladesh is(More)
Sera from randomly selected 49 professional blood donors, 617 pregnant women, 14 butchers, 528 slaughtered goats and 24 domestic cats in the district of Mymensingh were tested for the presence of T. gondii antibodies using a Latex agglutination test (LAT). Overall 12.4% blood donors, 11.18% pregnant women, 50.00% butchers, 12.88% slaughtered goats and(More)
In many applications like FIR filters, FFT, signal processing and measurements, we are required (~45 dB) or less side lobes amplitudes. However, the problem is usual window based FIR filter design lies in its side lobes amplitudes that are higher than the requirement of application. We propose a window function, which has better performance like narrower(More)
The occurrence of anthrax in 62 cattle and 27 humans in Pabna milk shed areas of Bangladesh was recorded during 1980-84. There were 62 sick animals: 43 (69%) died, 14 (23%) recovered with penicillin treatment and only five (8%) were slaughtered in a moribund stage, for human consumption. All 27 people who developed malignant pustules were cured with(More)
The latex agglutination test (Toxoreagent) was used to detect the sero-prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii in 302 Bangladeshi women who were under treatment for various gyneco-obstetric problems at the Mymensingh Medical College during January to June 1991. The over-all sero-prevalence rate was 15.89%, of which 6.25% reacted at 1:32, 33.33% at 1:64, 16.67% at(More)
An examination of the blood profile of domestic fowls infected with Raillietina echinobothrida revealed anaemia with a significant increase of total leukocyte counts and decrease of total serum protein. The pathological changes in the intestines were characterised by villous atrophy, enteritis with cellular infiltration and formation of characteristic(More)
Distribution of T- and B-lymphoid cells in peripheral blood, lymph node, spleen and bone marrow of normal healthy calves and valves immunized against Theileria annulata followed by challenge on Day 50 post-immunization were studied by rosette tests. Significantly increased percentages of T- and B-lymphoid cells were recorded in immunized calves.
In the present study, we evaluated the clinical course and outcome of chronic peritoneal dialysis (PD) in a group of elderly patients. We enrolled 60 elderly patients (37 men, 23 women) starting PD over a 4-year study period and assessed outcomes. The mean age of our patients was 61 +/- 7 years; mean PD duration was 16 months (range: 3 - 40 months). Primary(More)
