Objectives: Oral Submucous Fibrosis is a chronic, high risk, debilitating, pre-cancerous oral condition that is prevalent in Southeast Asian consumers of areca nut. This study was conducted to determine regarding gender specificity with relation to stages of OSF and medical & surgical treatment modalities. Setting: OSF patients treated at Oral Surgery clinics of Dow International Medical College, Dow University of Health Sciences. Period: From January 2016 to November 2017. Design of Study:

Two groups were divided based on treatment modalities. First group comprised of patients treated conservatively with medications and physiotherapy while the second group comprised of patients treated surgically. Results: Out of 225 patients treated with OSF, 88% of them were males while 12% were females with male to female ratio of 7:1. As per Khanna & Andrade classification, 9.7% belonged to group II, while 34.6% belonged to III and 55.5% of OSF patients belonged to IV-A. 56.8% of patients were treated conservatively while 43.1% were treated surgically. In the group of patients treated surgically, majority 84.6% of patients were treated with buccal fat pad while only 15.4% has nasolabial flap surgery performed. Conclusion: Statistical significant difference male preponderance in OSF disease severity was observed as compared to women in this sample of Pakistani population reporting to tertiary care hospital. A holistic approach should be undertaken with public health policies in place to discourage the use of areca nut products with or without tobacco and lower the burden of OSF in the general population.

Outcomes assessed were intraoperative time, deviation on mouth opening, malocclusion, plate bending, function of facial muscles and the relative cost of implants. Results: Out of a total of thirty patients, it was observed that those patients who were randomly assigned group 2 had better treatment outcomes and less complications as compared to the other group. Three patients with malocclusion were seen in group 1 compared with only a single case seen in group 2. Greater number of plate bending with susceptibility to plate fracture was also observed in Group 1. Conclusion: It can thus be concluded that using two plates for condylar fracture represents a more stable and sustainable solution with less complications in providing osteosynthesis.

Technology Enhanced Formative Assessment (TEFA) is an advanced and evidence-based pedagogical approach for science and mathematics teaching using a classroom response system. Question-driven instruction, dialogical discourse, formative assessment, and meta-level communication are four core principles on which TEFA is built upon. These are implemented through a question cycle in the classroom. Eight weeks duration intervention study was carried out in two urban high schools, one from each

The study participants included 42 girls and 47 boys in the experimental group, whereas 54 girls and 40 boys in the control group from the 8th-grade mathematics class. Students' mathematics motivation survey using IMI (i.e., intrinsic motivation inventory) was used to measure students' mathematics learning motivation levels. Two-way ANOVA was conducted to assess the motivation level of the students. Analysis of the results showed that the experimental group motivation level was significantly higher than the control group.

2015 2015 International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC)  
In this paper, near-orthogonal random space-time block codes (STBCs) are used to design near-orthogonal channels to transmit information independently in a fully opportunistic multi-hop strip-shaped cooperative wireless network. This opportunistic large array (OLA) network is considered to have fixed hop boundaries having constant node density and operating on decode-and-forward (DF) relaying mode. To deal with random number of DF nodes, in each hop, directional statistical concepts are used

The transmissions are modeled stochastically with Markov chain. Network performance is evaluated on the basis of one-hop success probability and coverage for different number of nodes per hop, and dimensions of STBCs.

Materials and Methods: Informed consent was obtainedalong with a comprehensive history; a systematic clinical examination was supplemented byradiographs of the face as required to confirm the presence of fractures. Statistical analysis wasdone using SPSS v.21. Results: Over 5 years, an overall 156 patients sustained 250 fractures ofthe mandible. Most affected gender was male, the age group was 20-30 years, most commoncause was Road Traffic Accidents and site was the parasymphysis. Conclusion: Mandibularfractures have a higher incidence in young males driving motorbikes or cars. More rigorouslegislative action and community awareness is required to lessen the rate of mandibularfractures in Karachi, Pakistan.

Pharmacological basis for the medicinal use of Psidium guajava leave in hyperactive gut disorders

Abdul Jabbar Shah, Sabira Begum, Syed Imran Hassan, Syed Nawazish Ali, Bina Shaheen Siddiqui, Anwarul-Hassan Gilani
2011 Bangladesh Journal of Pharmacology  
Psidium guajava L. is reputed for its medicinal use in hyperactive gut disorders. This study was aimed to investigate mechanism responsible for its medicinal use in diarrhea and gut spasm. In castor oil-induced diarrheal model, the crude extract of P. guajava (100-1,000 mg/kg), provided 20.5-81.1% protection, similar to loperamide. In isolated rabbit jejunum preparations, crude extract was found more potent against high K + than spontaneous precontractions, similar to verapamil, with EC50

The Ca ++ channel blocking activity was further confirmed when pre-treatment of tissue with crude extract (0.3-1 mg/ mL) caused a rightward shift in the Ca ++ concentration-response curves, similar to verapamil. Loperamide also inhibited spontaneous and high K +induced contractions and shifted the Ca ++ curves to the right. These data indicate that crude extract of P. guajava possesses Ca ++ antagonist-like constituent(s), which explain its inhibitory effect on gut motility. Article Info

Measurement of Women's Effect on Migration

Shayesta Gull, Syed Sabahat Shaheen
2021 Integrated Journal for Research in Arts and Humanities  
The most often utilised approach to migration research has traditionally focused on movement of persons because of economic mobility. Improving the financial status of migrants and having an influence on their socioeconomic status is just as crucial, but when it comes to analysing the effects of migration, it does not truly enhance the economic and social standing of the migrants. This paper compiles the many ways in which people of various demographics are burdened by migration, including the
more » ... ocial isolation and constrained mobility that it causes, and the ramifications of this confinement for migrant women, specifically the propensity to stay inside their homes and rise up the social ladder. Other subjects touched on in the study include the different effects that shape migrant women's perspectives, with a focus on matters beyond their initial choice and those brought on by social and political environments.
