Lead poisoning is a major public-health problem in Bangladesh. A cross-sectional study was conducted to determine the extent of and risk factors for elevated blood lead levels (BLLs) in children in Bangladesh during September 2007-July 2009. The study included 919 children aged less than 16 years. The children were recruited from six urban locations in(More)
Hepatic glucose production is critical for basal brain function and survival when dietary glucose is unavailable. Glucose-6-phosphatase (G6Pase) is an essential, rate-limiting enzyme that serves as a terminal gatekeeper for hepatic glucose release into the plasma. Mutations in G6Pase result in Von Gierke's disease (glycogen storage disease-1a), a(More)
The functional contribution of CNV to human biology and disease pathophysiology has undergone limited exploration. Recent observations in humans indicate a tentative link between CNV and weight regulation. Smith-Magenis syndrome (SMS), manifesting obesity and hypercholesterolemia, results from a deletion CNV at 17p11.2, but is sometimes due to(More)
Diseases of lipid metabolism are a major cause of human morbidity, but no animal model entirely recapitulates human lipoprotein metabolism. Here we develop a xenograft mouse model using hepatocytes from a patient with familial hypercholesterolaemia caused by loss-of-function mutations in the low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR). Like familial(More)

In this paper we are modelling a solar based non-conventional energy generation system using MATLAB software. A grid-connected solar cell (PV) system with the functionality of harmonic compensation is introduced in this thesis. Based on this, a test bed is built up to validate the practicability of the proposed scheme. Increasing interest and investment in(More)
Voltage sag and swell is big problem in power system. Sensitive load has a severe impact on itself due to voltage sag and swell. Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR) is a power customed device used in power distribution network. Matlab is an advanced simulation software used for effective modelling and simulation of DVR. Compensation for the control of voltage in(More)
In these modern research areas the Non-linear Dynamics is a very popular topic, the researchers study the nonlinear behaviour of every system which can be an industrial machine/instrument or a theoretical aspect. Prior researchers already studied the nonlinear dynamics of Current Controlled DC-DC Boost Converter. But the Power Factor Corrected Boost(More)
—Power quality is one of the major concerns in the present era. The problem of voltage sags and swells and its major impact on sensitive loads are well known. To solve this problem, custom power devices are used. One of those devices is the Dynamic Vol tage Restorer (DVR), which is one of the most efficient and effective modern custom power devices used in(More)
INTRODUCTION Heterotopic pregnancy is diagnosed as the presence of two gestations simultaneously. This is a rare situation with a reported prevalence of 0.08% in normal conception. CASE PRESENTATION We report a case of a 24-year-old primigravida of Indian origin who was seen in the emergency department with a diagnosis of a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. A(More)
Irisin reportedly promotes the conversion of preadipocytes into "brown-like" adipocytes within subcutaneous white adipose tissue (WAT) via a mechanism that stimulates UCP-1 expression. An increase in plasma irisin has been associated with improved obesity and insulin resistance in mice with type 2 diabetes. But whether a low level of irisin stimulates the(More)
