Background. Designed for use in clinical settings, the Diabetes Score is a 10-item, one-page questionnaire for discussing lifestyle change. We aimed to evaluate the Diabetes Score questionnaire for its validity and acceptability among individuals with type 2 diabetes. Methods. An observational study was conducted using interviewer-administered questionnaires to adult patients with type 2 diabetes at three ambulatory clinics. We used the Diabetes Score questionnaire for measuring adherence to

The questionnaire yields an intuitive score ranging from 0 to 100, by addition of each of the 10 items which are rated as 0, 5 or 10 by the patient. A score of more than 60 was considered satisfactory. results. A total of 311 patients, 56% females, with a median age of 55 years (range: 23 to 87) participated in the study. Diabetes Score correlated with glycemic control, hbA 1c (r = -0.20) and blood glucose (r = -0.25; P < 0.001), indicating validity. reliability was demonstrated by internal consistency (alpha .577) and discriminant factor analysis. Based on multivaria-te modeling, an improvement of 30 points on the Diabetes Score corresponded to a drop in hbA 1c by 1.0%-unit (11 mmol/mol). Conclusion. Diabetes Score is a valid and reliable tool for empowering lifestyle and behavior modification among patients with diabetes mellitus. This brief and free-to-use questionnaire has the potential to be used in diabetes clinics to discuss behavior change. It can serve as the first-line intervention in diabetes patients while reducing the cost of diabetes care. (Clin Diabetol 2020; 9; 6: 379-386)

Demographic variables, intraoperative findings, mean operation time, hospital stay, conversion rate, morbidity and mortality were evaluated. Factors influencing rate of conversion were also studied. A total of 504 patients were included. Mean age was 42.64 years (range 14-75 years) with a female: male ratio of 3.9:1.2. Comorbidities were found in 36.7% patients. Main indication of surgery was symptomatic cholelithiasis (78.57%). Mean operative time was 40.1 ± 6.9 minutes which increased to 75.12 ± 8.9 minutes in converted cases (p-value .000). Mean hospital stay was 1.89 ± 1.1 days that significantly increased in converted cases (5.7 ± 1.6 days) (p-value .000). Major surgical complications occurred in 3.17% patients. Common bile duct injury (CBDI) was found in 04 cases (0.79%). Conversion to laparotomy was required in 3.97% cases. Factors that influenced the rate of conversion included: age > 60 years, acute cholecystitis, coexisting diseases, ASA grade III/IV and inexperienced surgeon (p-value .000). Total complication rate was 3.56%, morbidity being 3.17% and mortality 0.39%. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy offers shorter hospital stay and low morbidity/mortality. The operative time is short and procedure is standard, safe and effective method both for uncomplicated and complicated cholelithiasis.

2022 Mathematical Problems in Engineering  
The paper is focused to design a robust and a simple fixed structure H ∞ control synthesis for an Electrohydraulic Servo System (EHSS) and comparing its performance with the conventional H ∞ controller and the classical proportional integral derivative (PID) controller. The precise position tracking of the piston load of EHSS system using classical PID controller is a difficult task due to some non-linear properties of EHSS and the dynamic behaviour of its parameters. The conventional H ∞

To overcome the above limitations, the proposed synthesis is formulated in the MATLAB. The proposed synthesis has fixed order and fixed structure and is also a linear robust controller. The control parameters of proposed synthesis are tuned using Genetic Algorithm optimization in MATLAB. Another advantage of this design is to use higher order complex shaping fillers to shape the close loop sensitivity S s and complementary sensitivity T s for the desired robust performance, without effecting the structure fixed of proposed synthesis. The order of the proposed controller is not affected by using the higher order complex weights transfer functions W s s and W T s on sensitivity and complementary sensitivity, respectively, whereas the structure of the conventional H ∞ controller becomes more complex due to higher order shaping weights. Model of the Electrohydraulic Servo System is validated experimentally, and results of proposed robust synthesis are compared with conventional H ∞ controller and the classical PID.

2021 Plants  
Genus Ziziphus (Z.) contains various important species in tropical and subtropical regions that are globally famous for their food and medicinal uses. However, no comprehensive study was available on the morphology and phytochemistry of Ziziphus species, mainly under different growth conditions, i.e., irrigated and desert (Cholistan). Therefore, this study was carried out to evaluate the morphological and phytochemical characteristics of Ziziphus species, i.e., Z. jujuba, Z. mauritiana, Z.

Our results revealed significant variations for most of the measured parameters, showing a large-scale diversity among Ziziphus species under irrigated and desert conditions. Specifically, Ziziphus species showed better morphology of all measured parameters of leaves and fruits under irrigated conditions compared to desert conditions, indicating that the optimum water availability in irrigated conditions improved the morphological parameters of Z. species. Meanwhile, among all Ziziphus species, the maximum leaf length (7.4 cm), leaf width (4.1 cm), leaf area (30.6 cm2), and leaf petiole length (1.3 cm) were observed for Z. jujuba, and the highest leaf dry weight (55.4%) was recorded for Z. mauritiana. Similarly, the highest fruit length (3.9 cm), fruit stalk length (1.5 cm), fruit diameter (3.6 cm), fruit width (3.8 cm), fruit area (66.1 cm2), seed length (2 cm), and seed diameter (1.1 cm) were measured for species Z. jujuba, while the maximum fruit dry weight (49.9%) and seed width (1.4 cm) were recorded for species Z. nummularia. Interestingly, compared to irrigated conditions, higher values of bioactive contents, i.e., phenol, flavonoid, and antioxidant activity, in fruits and leaves of Ziziphus species under desert conditions indicated the positive impact of desert climate on the phytochemistry of the Z. plants. Among Ziziphus species, Z. nummularia accumulated the maximum fruit phenols (304.4 mg GAE/100 g), leaf phenols (314.2 mg GAE/100 g), fruit flavonoids (123.7 mg QE/100 g), and leaf flavonoids (113.4 mg QE/100 g). Overall, this study demonstrated the significant morphological and phytochemical variations of the Ziziphus species under irrigated and desert conditions, which could be utilized for future studies to improve the production and medicinal potential of the Ziziphus, especially in desert areas.

Abstract: The plants Cassia fistula and Terminalia arjuna are medicinally important and produce leaves and colourful blossoms that belong to the Caesalpinioideae of the legume family and the family of Combretaceae. The antioxidant, hydrogen peroxide, and phytochemical assessment (qualitative and quantitative) of methanolic and ethanolic extracts of Cassia fistula and Terminalia arjuna flowers and leaves were investigated in this work. In qualitative phytochemical evaluation, the presence of ten

During quantitative analysis, the Cassia fistula L. leaves showed the highest TFC (32.783A ± 0.073) and the TPC was observed highest in Terminalia arjuna flowers (42.800A ± 0.028). The highest DPPH percentage was recorded in C. fistula flowers (21.825A ± 0.069) compared to its lowest value observed in C. fistula leaves (10.660B ± 0.053). The highest hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) scavenging activity among both plants was found in C. fistula (12.526A ± 0.146) and the lowest in its leaves (7.1470B ± 0.045). The methanolic extracts showed promising antioxidant activity. The presence of bioactive components in the leaves and flowers of Terminalia arjuna and Cassia fistula suggests that these flowers and leaves might be used as a phytochemical source and are also effective and safe as natural remedies. The biochemical analysis proved that the extracts of Cassia fistula and Terminalia arjuna plants have glycosides, flavonoids, and alkaloids that play a role in antioxidant activity.

The study proposed the classification and recognition of hand gestures using electromyography (EMG) signals for controlling the upper limb prosthesis. In this research, the EMG signals were measured through an embedded system by wearing a band of MYO gesture control. In order to observe the behavior of these change movements, the EMG data was acquired from 10 healthy subjects (five male and five females) performing four upper limb movements. After extracting EMG data from MYO, the supervised

The classification was performed with a 5-fold cross-validation technique under the supervision of Quadratic discriminant analysis (QDA), support vector machine (SVM), random forest, gradient boosted, ensemble (bagged tree), and ensemble (subspace K-Nearest Neighbors) classifier. The execution of these classifiers shows the overall accuracy of 83.9% in the case of ensemble (bagged tree) which is higher than other classifiers. Additionally, in this research an embedded system-based classification approach of hand movement was used for designing an upper limb prosthesis. This approach is different than previous techniques as MYO is used with an external Bluetooth module and different libraries that make its movement and performance boundless. The results of this study also inferred the operations which were easy for hand recognition and can be used for developing a powerful, efficient, and flexible prosthetic design in the future.
