Pregnancy and Loneliness: The Therapeutic Value of 3D/4D Ultrasound  [PDF]
Ulrich Honemeyer, Asim Kurjak
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.57085

The fetal sensual and motoric equipment and its successful development within the maternal organism on the one hand, and the harmonic psycho-physic transformation and maturation of the woman into a mother on the other hand, are linked in dialectic inter-dependence. We describe situations in which the harmony of this process is disturbed. Visualization of the fetus in 3D and real time 3D (4D) can influence parental phantasies of the unborn, improve compromised bonding, or create bonding between fetus and (foster)-parents, and support understanding and even acceptance of fetal pathology.

Uterine Lesions
S. Kupesic,A. Kurjak
Medicinski Glasnik , 2005,
Abstract: Transvaginal color and pulsed Doppler ultrasound depicts the endometrium in great details. The texture and thicknessof the endometrium are indicators of endometrial development, while blood flow analysis may be used as a bioassay of the uterine receptivity. This method can non-invasively detect uterine anomalies, endometrial polyps,submucous leiomyomas, intrauterine adhesions and other uterine causes that can lead to poor reproductive performance. Vascularization of the uterine tumors, if used together with analysis of morphology and size, can increase our accuracy in differentiation between uterine sarcoma and leiomyoma. It seems that the multiparameter sonographic approach, which includes morphology and size depicted by transvaginal ultrasonography and color flow imaging withpulsed Doppler analysis of neovascular signals,can help in diagnosis of uterine sarcoma in high-risk groups such as postmenopausal patients with a rapidly enlarging uterus. Therefore, serial measurements are recommended for evaluation of the myometrial density, follow-up of the tumoral growth, and detection of the impedance to blood flow.Only such complex observations can lead to proper diagnosis of these rare tumors with unpredictable prognosis. The application of transvaginal color Doppler to the postmenopausal population for screening of endometrial carcinoma may be a viable option if combined with ovarian screening in the same scan. In this way, the capital costs would be shared, and an oncological preventive medicine for women could be created. The use of this technique could also result in a reduction in dilatation and curettage operations with considerable saving of both the potential risks and economic costs of the operation.
Castrate Resistant Metastatic Prostate Cancer: Options for a Patient in 2012  [PDF]
Asim Ahmad, Winston Tan
Open Journal of Urology (OJU) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/oju.2012.223037
Abstract: Castrate resistant metastatic prostate cancer remains a fatal disease. Through preclinical studies and clinical trials, a multitude of options have been made available to prolong the life of these patients, as well as improve quality of life. First line treatment options following tumor progression after androgen deprivation therapy include Provenge and docetaxel. Several options are available as second line treatment, including cabazitaxel, abiraterone, and enzalutamide. Many drugs currently being studied are very promising, such as alpharadin. Here we review treatment options for patients suffering from disease progression after androgen deprivation therapy, and offer a review of the current available options for the clinician.
Online Data Processing Methods in Xlet Applications for Seismic Early Warning and Emergency Services on Interactive Digital Television  [PDF]
Mustafa Asim Kazancigil
Int'l J. of Communications, Network and System Sciences (IJCNS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijcns.2013.65025

In this paper, I described the methods that I used for the creation of Xlets, which are Java applets that are developed for the IDTV environment; and the methods for online data retrieval and processing that I utilized in these Xlets. The themes that I chose for the Xlets of the IDTV applications are Earthquake and Tsunami Early Warning; Recent Seismic Activity Report; and Emergency Services. The online data regarding the Recent Seismic Activity Report application are provided by the Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute (KOERI) of Bogazici University in Istanbul; while the online data for the Earthquake and Tsunami Early Warning and the Emergency Services applications are provided by the Godoro website which I used for storing (and retrieving by the Xlets) the earthquake and tsunami early warning simulation data, and the DVB network subscriber data (such as name and address information) for utilizing in the Emergency Services (Police, Ambulance and Fire Department) application. I have focused on the methodologies to use digital television as an efficient medium to convey timely and useful information regarding seismic warning data to the public, which forms the main research topic of this paper.

Exact Solution to Nonlinear Differential Equations of Fractional Order via (G’/G)-Expansion Method  [PDF]
Muhammad Younis, Asim Zafar
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/am.2014.51001

In this article, a new application to find the exact solutions of nonlinear partial time-space fractional differential Equation has been discussed. Firstly, the fractional complex transformation has been implemented to convert nonlinear partial fractional differential Equations into nonlinear ordinary differential Equations. Afterwards, the (G'/G)-expansion method has been implemented, to celebrate the exact solutions of these Equations, in the sense of modified Riemann-Liouville derivative. As application, the exact solutions of time-space fractional Burgers’ Equation have been discussed.

Drought as stress factor and its role in spruce (Picea abies /L./ Karst) dieback
Jaroslav Kme?,Daniel Kurjak,?ubica Ditmarová
?asopis Beskydy , 2008,
Abstract: In this paper we present the results of ecophysiological monitoring (chlorophyll a fluorescence measurements, assimilatory pigments concentration, needles water potential) of spruce forest stands health state in the Kysucké Beskydy Mts. The focus has been set on evaluation of the role of drought acting as one of numerous factors causing dieback of this tree species. Our research was a part of an extensive project aimed at providing sufficient analytic data on spruce dieback at all levels: beginning with individual trees, through forest stands, to large--sized areas. The next step is to synthesise these data and recognise how the dieback process works, which will eventually enable us to design more suitable models and to propose management directions for the endangered forests in north-west and north part of Slovakia.
Effect of Industrial Sludge Application on Soil Nitrogen and Wheat Plant Response  [PDF]
Sutapa Bose, Asim K. Bhattacharyya
Open Journal of Soil Science (OJSS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojss.2012.22019
Abstract: Wazirpur industrial area of Delhi generates a huge quantity of sludge per day, which is highly acidic in nature (pH 2.7 to 4.4) and contains macronutrients, micronutrients as well as toxic metals. A pot-culture experiment was conducted by taking the two soils (JNU and Chhattarpur) amended with sludge (0%, 10%, 20%, 30%), pretreated with lime (0%, 0.5% and 1%). Two wheat seedlings were planted per pot containing 3 kg sludge amended or control soil and the experiment was carried out till harvesting (four months) in a glass house. Lime treatments enhanced the N content in wheat plant in almost all cases. Sludge and lime treatments enhanced dry weight in wheat plants grown in Chhattarpur soil and dry weight increased with time. Maximum growth was observed in 0.5 lime treated and 20% sludge amended soils. But we have to take an account about any kind of metal toxicity before disposal of this waste to land.
Land Use Adaptation to Climate Change: Economic Damages from Land-Falling Hurricanes in the Atlantic and Gulf States of the USA, 1900–2005

Sustainability , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/su4050917
Abstract: Global climate change, especially the phenomena of global warming, is expected to increase the intensity of land-falling hurricanes. Societal adaptation is needed to reduce vulnerability from increasingly intense hurricanes. This study quantifies the adaptation effects of potentially policy driven caps on housing densities and agricultural cover in coastal (and adjacent inland) areas vulnerable to hurricane damages in the Atlantic and Gulf Coastal regions of the U.S. Time series regressions, especially Prais-Winston and Autoregressive Moving Average (ARMA) models, are estimated to forecast the economic impacts of hurricanes of varying intensity, given that various patterns of land use emerge in the Atlantic and Gulf coastal states of the U.S. The Prais-Winston and ARMA models use observed time series data from 1900 to 2005 for inflation adjusted hurricane damages and socio-economic and land-use data in the coastal or inland regions where hurricanes caused those damages. The results from this study provide evidence that increases in housing density and agricultural cover cause significant rise in the de-trended inflation-adjusted damages. Further, higher intensity and frequency of land-falling hurricanes also significantly increase the economic damages. The evidence from this study implies that a medium to long term land use adaptation in the form of capping housing density and agricultural cover in the coastal (and adjacent inland) states can significantly reduce economic damages from intense hurricanes. Future studies must compare the benefits of such land use adaptation policies against the costs of development controls implied in housing density caps and agricultural land cover reductions.
Neuropathic Aspect of Organophosphate Toxicity: A Review
Asim Kart
Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances , 2012,
Abstract: Organophosphates (OPs) are known to produce a delayed neuropathy in man and domestic animals. Other than acute cholinergic toxicity of OPs, they have been known to cause a delayed neuropathy called Organophosphorus Induced Delayed Neuropathy (OPIDN). Clinical manifestation of OPIDN is characterized by a delay period which is observed between 8 to 14 days after dosing. Toxic signs induce flaccid paralysis of lower and upper limbs and changes in neurons defined as a central-peripheral distal sensory-motor axonopathy. Although the mechanism is not clearly understood, OPs toxicity is attributed to inhibition of NTE. The initiation of OPIDN requires inhibition of NTE. Methods to elucidate mechanism of the toxicity may include use of other chemicals which can potentiate or prevent toxicity. Phenylmethylsulfonyl Fluoride (PMSF) is one such agent which has been widely utilized in mechanistic studies of OPIDN. Phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride is a serine protease inhibitor which has been used to elucidate the mechanism of OP induced delayed neuropathy. Phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride prevents OPIDN when given prior to an OP compound, but if PMSF is administered after an OP compound it potentiates the neurotoxicity.
