Bioavailability of Soy Protein and Corn Zein Films  [PDF]
Laura B. Matthews, M. Elizabeth Kunkel, James C. Acton, Amod A. Ogale, Paul L. Dawson
Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2011.210148
Abstract: The in vivo bioavailability of soy protein isolates and corn zein film material before and after film formation by heat/ pressure was determined. The In vitro digestibility of corn zein before and after film formation was also measured. Films were produced from anhydrous protein with 30% glycerol added using a heat-press method with no use of casting solvents or cross-linking agents. Corn zein raw and film material were ground under liquid nitrogen then digested in two enzyme-acid cocktails with free amino acid analysis before and after digestion. The protein efficiency ratio and net protein ratio were determined for both zein and soy protein using a weanling Sprague-Dawley descended rat feeding study. The In vitro digestibility study indicated that the non-heat pressed corn zein was more digestible than the heat pressed zein. However, the in vivo results indicated that corn and soy protein were equally bioavailable whether they were derived from film mixture prior to or after film formation. Both corn zein and soy protein material had lower protein efficiency ratio than the control diet. Furthermore, soy protein films materials had a higher protein efficiency ratio than corn zein.
Polycystic ovary syndrome

Journal of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes of South Africa , 2009,
Abstract: The description of polycystic ovaries dates back as far as 17211 but it was Stein and Leventhal who first reported the disorder, that we now know as the polycystic ovary (or ovarian) syndrome (PCOS), in seven women with amenorrhoea, enlarged ovaries with multiple cysts and hirsutism.2 These patients were treated with ovarian wedge resection and of the seven all had return of their menstrual cycles, and two conceived. With the advent of hormonal assays in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, the diagnostic focus expanded to include endocrine abnormalities in the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis.3 Elevated luteinising hormone (LH) levels and hyperandrogenaemia were therefore added to the diagnostic criteria for PCOS.4 The advent of pelvic ultrasonography in the late 1970’s allowed for the non-invasive detection of polycystic ovarian morphology. However, this tool confounded matters when it was discovered that polycystic ovaries was a “common finding in normal women”,5 and that it also occurred in diverse endocrine disorders such as hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinaemia, congenital adrenal hyperplasia and hypothalamic amenorrhoea.6 The finding of polycystic ovaries in normal women has been variably referred to as polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD), polycystic ovaries (PCO) and polycystic ovarian morphology (PCOM). We prefer the to use the term PCOM in this setting as it simply describes the ultrasound appearance of the ovaries without any syndromic connotations. Despite the strong link between diabetes mellitus and PCOS, it was only in 1980 when Burghen and coworkers first described hyperinsulinaemia and insulin resistance in PCOS.7 This has subsequently been confirmed by many others. The identification of PCOS now encompasses a heterogeneous presentation but has at its core three principal features: i. Hyperandrogenism ii. Anovulation, and/or iii. Polycystic ovarian morphology (PCOM) on ultrasonography

Cosine Modulated Non-Uniform Filter Banks  [PDF]
Jyotsna Ogale, Samrat Ashok
Journal of Signal and Information Processing (JSIP) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jsip.2011.23024
Abstract: Traditional designs for non-uniform filter bank (NUFB) are usually complex; involve complicated nonlinear optimization with a large number of parameters and lack of linear phase ([LP) property. In this paper, we describe a simple design method for multirate near perfect reconstruction (NPR) cosine modulated filter banks with non-uniform frequency spacing and linear phase property that involves optimization of only single parameter. It is derived from the uniform cosine modulated filter bank (CMFB) by merging some relevant band pass filters. The design procedure and the structure of the uniform CMFB are mostly preserved in the non-uniform implementation. Compared to other design methods our method provides very good design and converges very rapidly but the method is applicable, only if the upper band edge frequency of each non-uniform filter is an integral multiple of the bandwidth of the corresponding band. The design examples are presented to show the superiority of the proposed method over existing one.
Diabetes guidelines and clinical practice: is there a gap? The South African cohort of the International Diabetes Management Practices Study
A Amod, W Riback, HS Schoeman
Journal of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes of South Africa , 2012,
Abstract: Objectives: The objective of this survey was to determine the therapeutic management of patients with diabetes in the South African private healthcare environment. Design: The International Diabetes Management Practices Study is an international multicentre and observational study. In this paper, the local South African data from the cross-sectional cohort study are discussed. Setting: South African healthcare providers who were involved in the management of patients with diabetes. Subjects: Subjects included male and female adult patients who were diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus and who consulted their healthcare provider during a specified period of two weeks. Outcome measures: Information on patient demographic and socio-economic profiles, relevant medical histories, data on previous and concomitant antidiabetic treatments, glycaemic status, patient education levels and the impact of diabetes on absenteeism and hospitalisation was collected. Results: A total of 899 patients from 54 healthcare centres in South Africa participated. The mean age of patients in the study was 53.35 ± 14.47 years. The duration of diabetes was longer in type 1 diabetic patients. Of the type 2 diabetic patients, 46.4% were on oral antidiabetic monotherapy and 44.1% on two oral medications. Metformin was the most commonly prescribed oral medication. Of the 242 patients with type 2 diabetes on insulin and oral combination, 175 were on one oral medication combined with insulin therapy. The mean haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) of study participants was 8.2%. Conclusion: These data demonstrate that in accordance with current global findings, the glycaemic control of the majority of a cohort of patients with diabetes managed in the private healthcare sector in South Africa was suboptimal when assessed according to HbA1c levels.
