As part of a large-scale sero-epidemiological survey on visceral leishmaniasis (VL) carried out in Mymensingh district of Bangladesh, applicability of DAT was assessed at the level of a rural health setting in Trishal (upazila) subdistrict. Despite the relatively less optimal conditions encountered, 5854 inhabitants from 7 villages appendant to Trishal were(More)
Control of endemic visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in large communities requires a feasible epidemiological indicator capable of monitoring on-going transmission rather than mere exposure to the parasite. Following confirmation of the desired level of reliability for laboratory diagnosis of VL, the direct agglutination test (DAT) was employed to estimate VL(More)
Let E be a topological vector space and X be a non-empty subset of E. quasi-variational inequality (GQVI) problem is to find a pointˆy ∈ S(ˆ y) and a pointˆw ∈ T(ˆ y) such that Rê w, ˆ y − x ≤ 0 for all x ∈ S(ˆ y). We shall use Chowdhury and Tan's 1996 generalized version of Ky Fan's minimax inequality as a tool to obtain some general theorems on solutions(More)
In this paper, the authors prove some existence results of solutions for a new class of generalized bi-quasi-variational inequalities (GBQVI) for quasi-pseudo-monotone type I operators in non-compact settings in locally convex Hausdorff topological vector spaces. In obtaining these results on GBQVI for quasi-pseudo-monotone type I operators in non-compact(More)
Peginterferon alpha-2a and ribavirin combination therapy achieves a sustained virological response (SVR) in patients with chronic hepatitis C. Little is know about long-term durability of hepatitis C virus--Ribonucleic acid (HCV-RNA) negativity in patient treated with pegylated interferon and ribavirin therapy. Aim of this study was to evaluate the(More)
Suppose that E is a topological vector space and X is a non-empty subset of E. Let S : X → 2 X and T : X → 2 E * be two maps. Then the generalized quasi-variational inequality problem (GQVI) is to find a pointˆy ∈ S(ˆ y) and a pointˆw ∈ T(ˆ y) such that Rê w, ˆ y − x 0 for all x ∈ S(ˆ y). We shall use Chowdhury and Tan's generalized version [4] of Ky Fan's(More)
Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) is known to be the significant cause of Liver related morbidity and mortality, affecting 400 million people worldwide and a major public health problem in Bangladesh where carrier rates of HBV infection varies from 7.5 to 10%. In Bangladesh prevalence of asymptomatic HBV infection and incidentally detected HBsAg positive(More)
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional disorder characterized by chronic or recurrent abdominal pain or discomfort with bowel disturbances. This prospective, randomized clinical trial has been conducted on IBS patients, using trimebutine and Mebeverine in separate group in parallel design to compare the efficacy and safety of Trimebutine 100mg twice(More)
