Hyperthyroidism is accompanied by osteoporosis with higher
incidence of fracture rates. The present work aimed to study
bone status in hyperthyroidism and to elucidate the impact of
severity, duration, and etiology of hyperthyroidism on
biochemical markers of bone turnover and bone mineral density (BMD).
Subjects& Methods: Fifty-two male patients with
hyperthyroidism, 31 with Graves' disease (GD) and 21 with toxic
multinodular goiter (TNG), with an age ranging from 23 to 65
years were included, together with 25 healthy euthyroid men with
matched age as a control group. In addition to full clinical
examination, patients and controls were subjected to measurement
of BMD using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometery scanning of the
lower half of the left radius. Also, biochemical markers of bone
turnover were done for all patients and controls. Results:
Biochemical markers of bone turnover: included serum bone
specific alkaline phosphatase, osteocalcin, carboxy terminal
telopeptide of type l collagen also, urinary deoxypyridinoline
cross-links (DXP), urinary DXP/urinary creatinine ratio and
urinary calcium/urinary creatinine ratio were significantly
higher in patients with GD and TNG compared to controls
(P<0.01). However, there was non-significant difference in these
parameters between GD and TNG patients (P>0.05). BMD was
significantly lower in GD and TNG compared to controls, but the
Z-score of BMD at the lower half of the left radius in patients
with GD (-1.7±0.5 SD) was not significantly different from those
with TNG (-1.6±0.6 SD) (>0.05). There was significant positive
correlation between free T3 and free T4 with biochemical markers
of bone turnover, but negative correlation between TSH and these
biochemical markers of bone turnover. The duration of the
thyrotoxic state positively correlated with the assessed bone
turnover markers, but it is negatively correlated with the
Z-score of BMD in the studied hyperthyroid patients (r=-0.68,
P<0.0001). Conclusion: Men with hyperthyroidism have
significant bone loss with higher biochemical markers of bone
turnover. The severity and the duration of the thyrotoxic state
are directly related to the derangement of biochemical markers
of bone turnover and bone loss.

The importance of engineering drawing cannot be overemphasized,
as it is one of core courses in engineering curriculum. Hence,
adequate and in-depth knowledge of the subject is required to
become a successful engineer. This study was carried out to
determine, if there were significant differences in the
performance of male and female students in engineering drawing
at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso. Secondary
data in form of the results or scores for the past five years
were collected from the examination officers of various
departments, through the permission of their heads of
departments. Essentially, cumulative grade point average (CGPA)
of the students was used. Data were analysed using means and
standard deviations at 95 % confidence level. Data were further
subjected to t-test analyses through the employment of
Chi-square tests. The trends performance of students based on
gender, courses, and as well as years of study were also
investigated. The mean scores of 2.725 and 2.6 were obtained for
female students for the period of five years in MEE 201
(Engineering Drawing I) and MEE 202 (Engineering Drawing II)
respectively, while the corresponding mean scores for male
students were 3.0 and 2.925. Statistics revealed that, there was
no significant difference in the overall performance between the
male and female students in engineering drawing. The results of
ANOVA test further showed that, whether based on gender, courses
and years, there were no significant differences in the trend of
performance of both female and male students. The study
concluded that, the males are not academically superiors to
females and that gender analysis of performance is not on

The study was aimed to determine the effectiveness of diabetes
self-management education (DSME) on empowering adolescents
towards seven diabetic self-care management. A purposive sample
of 52 adolescents’ aged from twelve to eighteen years, who have
type I diabetes as a chronic illness, were taken from Diabetic
Pediatric Out-Patient Clinic at Children Hospital affiliated to
Ain Shams University. The tools were used in the study included
demographic data sheet, questionnaire sheet act as a baseline
assessment for knowledge and observation checklist to assess
practice regarding to seven items of DSME and the data
collection tools were used twice pre/post. The study revealed
that, there was a statistically significant difference between
pre/post, pre/follow-up and post/follow-up implementation of
DSME sessions and after six months follow-up. The study
concluded that DSME had empowered adolescents toward achieve
self-care. It could be recommended that DSME could be applied
to all age of children especially adolescents to guide the
intervention and improve the care.

The effect of
storage conditions on the rheological/functional properties of
‘Ukpo’ (Mucuna sloanei), was studied for 12 weeks and
analysed at 4 week intervals. The seeds were subjected to five
different storage conditions namely refrigeration, ambient, fire
place (Ngiga), plastic, and mud pot. Rheological analysis
showed that the values of the legumes significantly decreased
(p≤0.05) for viscosity, water absorption, oil absorption,
foaming capacity, Emulsifying capacity, swelling index,
wetability and solubility as the storage time increased from I
week to 12 weeks; while there was no significant increase
(p≥0.05) in gelation, and bulk density as time of storage from I
week to 12 weeks. The values of gelation of “Ukpo” stored under
refrigeration increased from (24.00% - 32.00%) as the storage
time increased from 1 week to 12 weeks. The protein content of
“Ukpo” also decreased in fire place (Ngiga) after 12 weeks of
storage from (19.80%) to (17.80%).

Little is known about the role of inducible nitric oxide
synthase (iNOS) in atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease
(CAD) and diabetes mellitus. The aim of this study was to
evaluate serum level of iNOS and its mRNA expression in patients
with CAD and diabetes mellitus. Patients and Methods:
The study conducted on 42 CAD patients (28 with type II diabetes
mellitus & 14 non-diabetics), mean age 58.35+5.38 years.
Diagnosis of CAD was established by presence of characteristic
chest pain, ECG changes, Exercise tread mill test or dobutamine
stress test echocardiography. Twenty healthy subjects of matched
age were included as a control group. All subjected to through
history taking, clinical examination, E.C.G., echocardiography,
laboratory investigations as blood sugar, lipid profiles,
measurement of iNOS serum level by enzyme immunosorbent assay
and detection of iNOS mRNA expression using reverse
transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Results:
The level of iNOS was significantly higher in patients group
compared with control group (25.18±5.6 versus 7.61±1.55 IU/ml,
P<0.0001) and in diabetics versus non diabetic patients
(28.48±5.6 versus 16.45±5.62 IU/ml, P<0.0001). Also, iNOS mRNA
expression was found to be positive in 54.8% of all patient
group and 71.4% of diabetic patients compared to 21.4% of non
diabetics. The activity of iNOS and its expression increase
significantly within the patients group with increase age and
presence of dyslipidemia, but ejection fraction was lower in
patients with iNOS mRNA expression than patient without. Positive correlation was detected between serum iNOS and total
cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, systolic, diastolic
and mean blood pressure, but negative correlation with ejection
fraction was detected. Conclusion: This study has
demonstrated that, stimulated expression of iNOS gene and higher
serum levels of iNOS is associated with CAD and/or diabetes
mellitus. The use of iNOS gene transfer or antisense technology
aiming at inhibiting the expression of iNOS may be beneficial
therapeutic value in these conditions.

DNA Computing is an alternative method for computations. It is
based on the observation that in general it is possible to
design of series of biochemical experiments involving DNA
molecules which is equivalent to processing information encoded
in these molecules. Cook’s Theorem tells that
if one algorithm for an NP-complete or an NP-hard problem will
be developed, then other problems will be solved by means of
reduction to that problem. The minimum vertex cover problem is a
classic graph optimization problem and has been shown to be
NP-Complete. In this paper, we propose a DNA algorithm for
solving the minimum vertex-cover problem.

there is a lack of study on food intake by larvivorous fish in
general and Aplocheilus panchax (Cyprinidontiformes:
Aplocheilidae) in particular, henceforth a study on food
preference by the fish with special reference to
Anopheline mosquito larvae has been taken up with aims of its
application in field conditions in controlling mosquito population.
fishes were collected from water fragments of Loktak lake in
Manipur state, India. Two experiments were designed - first
experiment on the size range food preference between live and
artificial food when supplied separately while the second one is
based on size range specific preference towards different food
items when supplied together. The consumption rate of fish was
found higher towards mosquito larvae than chironomids larvae and
artificial food. The consumption rate of fish increases on
increasing size range. Two-way ANOVA was followed for 2 source
of variance i.e., size of fish and food types. A
comparison has been made using F-test at 1% level of
Aplocheilus panchax showed higher preference to live food
and that too on Anopheline larvae; it is presumed that this fish
could be one of the efficient biocontrol agents in fields and
thus in reducing mosquito borne diseases.

This study aimed to assess the food safety practices of mothers
with children under 5 years old and to evaluate the
microbiological quality of some traditional complimentary foods
used. Quantitative data were collected from respondents (n =
100) using a Knowledge, Attitudes, Beliefs and Practices (KABP)
questionnaire and face-to face interview. Only
11% of the mothers are educated up to tertiary level, 13% used
tap water as drinking water and 54% used kerosene stoves for
85% wash hands before feeding children, after cleaning child’s
stool, eating or cooking food, but usage of soap is very
limited. The traditional foods commonly used as complimentary
foods include ogi, amala, rice, beans, eba and eko.
The highest microbial count (7.01 + 0.17log cfu/g) was
observed with eko while the least count (3.42 +
0.22 log cfu/g) was observed in amala. The microorganisms
isolated from the food sampled include Escherichia coli,
Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis,
niger, Mucor mucedo
and Penicillium species.
Out of the 240 food samples examined,
was isolated from 210 (87.5%) samples; E.coli was
isolated from 56 food sample while faecal coliform was isolated
from 48 samples.
To achieve global food safety it is necessary to inform
consumers, especially mothers, about fundamental principles of
food safety assurance at home, since food safety begins and ends
in the home of a consumer.

Abstract: Background and aims:
(Epo) levels were found to be increased in patients with acute
and chronic liver diseases. This may be due to impaired liver
function and its possible influence on Epo catabolism,
inflammation, through the liberation of cytokines with a
modulating action on Epo.
The aim of the present
study was to evaluate the level of plasma erythropoietin hormone
level and its relation to anemia in cirrhotic patients.
Methods: 60 cirrhotic
patients and 20 healthy
persons of matched age and sex as a control group
were selected. All were
subjected to full clinical; laboratory and ultrasonographic
assessment to diagnose liver cirrhosis and accordingly,
cirrhotic patients were classified into 3 groups (G1a:
Child's grade A; G1b:
Child's grade B; G1c:
Child's grade C) 20 patient in each group. Plasma
Epo was detected to all
subjects. Results: High significant elevation of mean
plasma Epo values as well as Epo Hb normalized ratio in
cirrhotic groups (G1a, G1b & G1c) when compared to control group
(G2) p<0.001. Significant elevation in mean plasma Epo value of
anemic patients when compared to non-anemic patients p<0.05.
Highly significant negative correlation between mean plasma Epo
value and hemoglobin (Hb) concentration p<0.01. Conclusion:
Plasma Epo levels are significantly higher in patients with
liver cirrhosis, plasma Epo levels in anemic cirrhotic patients
are significantly higher than that of non- anemic cirrhotic
patients and Hb concentration is not the only factor responsible
for elevated plasma Epo level in cirrhotic patients.

Empowering rural women in Iran
Abbas Emami and
Damavand Branch, Islamic Azad
University, Damavand, Iran
In the development countries, rural societies which are poverty
for geographic reasons such as being far from urban societies or
because of mountainous of zone and also as the roads are
impassable and some other reason, they became deprived of many
human development programs. Unfortunately these societies are
suffering of mortality because of poverty but what is clear here
is that we can't attribute such privation to geography and
nature of the zone. Every country is tying to solve such
critical conditions by applying depoverty policies. Poverty
spreading in village is a global issue. According to the Fao
finding about % 75 of world’s poor people that are more than 1
milliard people are living in rural zone and more than % 70 of
this poverty people are women. As the most of the people who are
poor are living in village and are women is the reason for
insufficiency of rural development programs. One of the other
basic barriers in development of rural women is their
independent inaccessibility to get credits for investment in
their job. Although their illiteracy is the big barrier to use
of bank credits, but this view that women are dependent people
that their husband should decide about their financial decisions
is the other reason that rural women couldn't access to official
credits. Maybe these barriers are the reason why rural women are
happy about applying micro-credit thought in village.
In micro-credits programs other than offering and
distributing micro loans, there are also small savings and
deposits so that they are designed as form of saving-credit
