Fasciola gigantica is the main fasciolid species in Africa; however, F. hepatica and F. gigantica overlap in some countries. Egypt deserves mentioning because of the emerging situation of human fascioliasis in the Nile Delta area. The morphometric characteristics of fasciolid adults infecting the main livestock species present in the Nile Delta human(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate and compare outcome of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), yttrium-90 radioembolization, radiofrequency ablation (RFA), or transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) as bridge to liver transplant (LT) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. METHODS AND MATERIALS We retrospectively reviewed patients treated at our institution(More)
Praziquantel is still very effective for the treatment of schistosomiasis, but there are rising concerns on the potential risk of developing resistances because of the extensive use of this drug. Triclabendazole, a systemic anthelmintic, is very effective against other trematodes such as Paragonimus spp. and Fasciola spp. It has been reported to be(More)
The prevalence of waterpipe tobacco smoking is increasing worldwide, despite evidence indicating its adverse health effects. Women and young people seem more likely to be choosing waterpipe tobacco smoking over cigarettes.

Large-scale chemotherapy has proved to be an affordable, feasible and effective strategy for the control of schistosomiasis in most endemic countries. However, it is becoming increasingly evident that chemotherapy alone has failed to break the cycle of transmission in high-risk communities, and data from Egypt confirm this. To accelerate the elimination of(More)
This paper aims at explaining the architecture of the AEMB and optimizing its threading model. AEMB is a soft core, open source processor designed for FPGA implementation. AEMB uses a fine grained model that interleaves threads one instruction at a time with separate register sets for each thread. The chosen optimization is to change the current threading(More)
The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of pregnancy among adolescent women at El Zawya Village, Assiut City, Egypt and to assess the perinatal knowledge of these adolescent pregnant women at the same village. A Cross Sectional study was used in carrying out this study. A Structured Interviewing questionnaire is designed by the investigator to be(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to assess the short-term effect of plasmonic photothermal therapy (PPTT) on induced hamster buccal pouch (HBP) carcinoma. STUDY DESIGN Seventy-six Syrian golden male hamsters were used. The induced HBP carcinomas were directly injected with ∼30 nm gold nanospheres followed by 15 min laser exposure (PPTT). (More)
