Bangladesh, the eighth most populous country in the world with about 153 million people, has recently been applauded as an exceptional health performer. In the first paper in this Series, we present evidence to show that Bangladesh has achieved substantial health advances, but the country's success cannot be captured simplistically because health in(More)
The study was conducted from March 2008 to February 2010 in Microbiology Department, Citi Lab, Rawalpindi, to determine the causative microorganisms and their antibiotic sensitivity pattern in patients with chronic suppurative otitis media. One hundred and eighty-three samples received at Citi Lab were included in the study. Pus samples were cultured(More)

This paper presents an impedance-source power converter (abbreviated as Z-source inverter) (ZSI). Z-source have recently been examined and investigated as alternative for traditional inverters. The Z-source converter uses LC impedance network to couple the main converter circuit to the power source, which provides the boosting of input voltage that is not(More)
tRNAile was isolated from E. coli Cp 79 (leu-, arg-, thr-, his-, thiamin-, RCrel) which had been grown on a sub-optimal concentration of thr and was found to contain an average of 50% less N-[9-(beta-D-ribofuranosyl)- purin-6-ylcarbamoyl]threonine, t6Ado, than tRNAile from cells grown on an optimum concentration of thr and containing a normal complement of(More)
The growing pandemics of diabetes have become a real threat to world economy. Hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance are closely associated with the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes. In pretext of brown adipocytes being considered as the therapeutic strategy for the treatment of obesity and insulin resistance, we have tried to understand the effect of(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy and tolerability of quinine-doxycycline combination therapy in uncomplicated falciparum malaria in terms of malarial parasite clearance from peripheral blood. METHODS One hundred adult males were included in the study. Malarial parasite counts in peripheral blood films were determined at the time of admission and then 12(More)
Anatomical variants of the cerebral arteries in general are frequent and due to the complex ontogenesis of these structures. Although encountered in many mammals, a single anterior cerebral artery (ACA) trunk is an infrequent finding in humans with an incidence of 3–5%. This vessel, giving rise to the arteries of both frontal lobes, is subjected to high(More)
Up to 73% decrease in cost of media for plant regeneration and in vitro conservation was achieved in Curcuma longa cv Prathibha by using inexpensive carbon source and gelling agent. Laboratory reagent-grade sucrose was replaced by locally available commercial sugar (market sugar or sugar cubes) as carbon source and bacteriological grade agar by isabgol(More)
In vitro testing of the extracts of medicinal plants collected from Islamabad and the Murree region on insulin secretagogue activity was carried out. Dried ethanol extracts of all plants (ZH1-ZH19) were dissolved in ethanol and DMSO, and tested at various concentrations (between 1 and 40 microg/mL) for insulin release from INS-1 cells in the presence of 5.5(More)
In the present work, synthesis of poly(vinyl alcohol)/graphene oxide/starch/silver (PVA/GO/Starch/Ag) nanocomposites films is reported. Such films have been characterized and investigated for their mechanical, thermal and antimicrobial properties. The exfoliation of GO in the PVA matrix occurs owing to the non-covalent interactions of the polymer chains of(More)
