Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a globally health problem. In 2005, the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office set a goal of reducing chronic HBV infection rate to less than 2% among children five years of age by 2012, as an interim milestone towards the final goal of less than 1%. Many countries made some plans (such as free HBV vaccination program for… (More)
Adsorption of DNA on montmorillonite, kaolinite, goethite and soil clays from an Alfisol in the presence of citrate, tartrate and phosphate was studied. A marked decrease in DNA adsorption was observed on montmorillonite and kaolinite with increasing anion concentrations from 0 to 5 mM. However, the amount of DNA adsorbed by montmorillonite and kaolinite… (More)
In this paper, the dynamical behavior of a virus dynamics model with CTL immune response and time delay is studied. Time delay is used to describe the time between the infected cell and the emission of viral particles on a cellular level. The effect of time delay on stability of the equilibria of the CTL immune response model has been studied and sufficient… (More)
In this paper, we introduce a fractional-order HBV infection model. We show the existence of non-negative solutions of the model, and also give a detailed stability analysis of the disease-free and endemic equilibria. Numerical simulations are presented to illustrate the results.
In this paper, an SEIV epidemic model with vaccination and nonlinear incidence rate is formulated. The analysis of the model is presented in terms of the basic reproduction number R 0. It is shown that the model has multiple equilibria and using the center manifold theory, the model exhibits the phenomenon of backward bifurcation where a stable disease-free… (More)
BACKGROUND The progression of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) leads to anemia in patients, adversely affecting prognosis. The diverse causes of anemia may include excessive eryptosis or premature suicidal erythrocyte death characterized by cell shrinkage and phosphatidylserine (PS) exposure on the cell surface. The present study explored if SLE enhances… (More)
In this paper, the asymptotic behavior of nonoscillatory solutions of the nonlinear dynamic equation on time scales r(t)g(y ∆ (t)) ∆ − f (t, y(t)) = 0, t ≥ t 0 is considered under the condition ∞ t 0 g −1 m 1 r(t) ∆t = ∞ for m 1 = 0. Three sufficient and necessary conditions are obtained, which include and improve M.R.S. Kulenovi´c and´C. Ljubovi´c's recent… (More)
