CRT and Fixed Patterns in Combinatorial Sequences [article]

Muhammad Asad Khan, Amir Ali Khan, Fauzan Mirza
2015 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, new context of Chinese Remainder Theorem (CRT) based analysis of combinatorial sequence generators has been presented. CRT is exploited to establish fixed patterns in LFSR sequences and underlying cyclic structures of finite fields. New methodology of direct computations of DFT spectral points in higher finite fields from known DFT spectra points of smaller constituent fields is also introduced. Novel approach of CRT based structural analysis of LFSR based combinatorial sequence

Eventration of diaphragm in adults: eleven years experience

Syed Zahid Ali Shah, Shahbaz Ali Khan, Amir Bilal, Manzoor Ahmad, Gul Muhammad, Khalid Khan, Muhammad Amjad Khan
2014 Journal of Ayub Medical College  
Eventration of diaphragm is a congenital condition in which there is absence of muscle fibers in the diaphragm while maintaining all the anatomical attachments normally. Surgical treatment is warranted in symptomatic patients so as to reduce the abnormal ascent of diaphragm. The present study was conducted to analyse the perioperative outcome of thoracotomy in adult patients with diaphragmatic eventration. This descriptive case series was carried out in Cardiothoracic Surgery-Unit, Postgraduate

Patients of either gender, above 16 years who were operated for symptomatic eventrtaion were included in study. All the demographic data, presenting complaints, baseline and post-postoperative dyspnea grade, forced expiratory volume at 1 second (FEV1) and forced vital capacity (FVC) were recorded on predesigned pro forma and analysed using SPSS-16. A total of 38 adult patients underwent surgery for diaphragmatic eventration over the past 11 years in our unit out of which 29 (76%) were males and rest of 9 (24%) were females. Mean age of patients was 41.6±13.84 years. In 31 (81.5%) patients left side was involved. Majority of patients had a dyspnea grade-3 on presentation. Preoperative dyspnoea score (MRC), FEV1 and FVC values were 2.6±0.73, 63.5±13.3 and 67.2±14.6 respectively. Pre-operative and 6-months follow-up values of dyspnoea grade, FEV1 and FVC values showed statistically significant improvement. Our study showed that adult patients with symptomatic unilateral eventration of diaphragm significantly benefit from diaphragmmatic plication.

The most common ENT disorder encountered was rhinosinusitis which was seen in 14.2% cases, followed by ear wax (impacted cerumen) in 13.4% and pharyngitis in 12.5% cases. Allergic rhinitis was seen in 10.4% cases, epistaxis in 7.4% and chronic suppurative otitis media in 6.4% cases. Among the emergency ENT procedures performed, anterior nasal packing was the commonest (done in 55 cases) followed by stitching of lacerations and foreign body removal from ear and nose. Conclusion: Ear, nose and throat diseases are very common in Shangla and their spectrum range from rhinosinusitis, impacted cerumen (ear wax) and pharyngitis to less common but potentially dangerous conditions like foreign body impaction in ear and nose.

Objectives: T/E fusion results in constitutive expression of ERG oncoprotein resulting in enhanced proliferation and invasive potential of prostatic cancer cells. In the present study we aimed to evaluate the ERG overexpression in 78 cases prostate acinar adenocarcinoma and its association with other prognostic parameters. Results: ERG protein expression was noted in 39.7% (31 cases), out of which 3 cases (3.8%) showed low ERG expression, 10 cases (12.8%) showed intermediate expression and 18

Significant association of ERG expression was noted with gleason score (p = 0.009), WHO grade group (p = 0.008) and perineural invasion (p = 0.043). We found a significant proportion of our patients of prostatic acinar adenocarcinoma to overexpress ERG protein which can help in devising therapeutic protocols. Significant association of ERG protein expression with gleason score and perineural invasion signifies its prognostic significance in prostatic carcinoma. Moreover, we also suggest that molecular studies should be performed in patients with prostatic carcinoma to look for T/E fusion gene and its correlation with ERG protein expression.

This paper is an attempt to trigger the research in this modern domain so that we can benefit from cost effective and resource efficient autonomous agricultural methodologies. This paper focuses on a scalable low cost semi-autonomous technique for wheat harvest which primarily focuses on the farmers with small land holdings. The main focus will be on the vision part of the navigation system deployed by the proposed robot.

2019 BMC Research Notes  
Ki67 is the most commonly used marker to evaluate proliferative index in breast cancer, however no cutoff values have been clearly defined for high ki67 index. Cancer management should be according to loco-regional profile; therefore, we aimed to determine ki67 index in 1951 cases of intrinsic breast cancer subtypes and its association with other prognostic parameters in our set up. Triple negative breast cancers showed highest ki67 index (mean 50.9 ± 23.7%) followed by Her2neu (mean 42.6 ±

No significant association of ki67 index was noted with any of the histologic parameters in different subtypes of breast cancer expect for tumor grade. Although, ki67 index is a valuable biomarker in breast cancer, however no independent prognostic significance of ki67 could be established in our study.
