Abstract: The most widespread arbovirus in the world, dengue fever has been rampant since the 18th century. Since then, several epidemics have been documented in Asia, the Caribbean, South America and Africa. The authors report two cases of dengue fever in children aged six (6) and twelve (12) years respectively. The diagnosis of several dengue pulmonary was retained in these children, clinico-radiological and biological arguments. In addition to the hemorrhagic syndrome, the pulmonary symptomatology associated cough, dyspnea. Chest X-ray revealed bilateral and extensive alveolar interstitial radiological lesions. From a biological point of view, the positivity of dengue-specific IgM has confirmed arboviruses. From the diagnostic peculiarities of the cases observed, the authors suggest the search for factors associated with a primary dengue infection from several onsets to pulmonary manifestation in children. Indeed, this fringe of the population is no longer concerned with acute respiratory infections. In addition, the socio-cultural context of poverty, of pre-hospital therapeutic itinerary favoring traditional medicine, delays hospital care.

Open Journal of Pediatrics (OJPed) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojped.2018.84030
Abstract: A prospective cross-sectional descriptive and analytical study was conducted using an individual questionnaire over a four-month period from October 04th, 2013 to February 06th, 2014 in Abidjan. It included teenagers aged from 13 to 17 who are students among which some are not attending school and living in the street for others. The purpose of this study was to describe the socio-demographic characteristics of the teenagers addicted to smoking and to determine the factors associated with smoking addiction. 446 teenagers were recruited. A prospective cross-sectional descriptive and analytical study was conducted over a four-month period from October 4th, 2013 to February 06, 2014 in Abidjan. There were 76% boys versus 26% girls. The prevalence of smoking addiction was 81.9% for teenagers not attending school and living in the
Impact agro écologique de simulation de culture transgénique de ma s résistant au glyphosate et effet répétitif d’un traitement herbicide sur la flore adventice en Cote d’ivoire
M Boraud, E Aké-Assi, N Kassi, S Aké, J Gasquez
Sciences & Nature , 2010,
Abstract: Les impacts agro écologiques des cultures transgéniques sont les flux de gènes entre les cultures de même nature et entre la culture transgénique et les adventices du milieu de culture. Entre autres menaces sur les écosystèmes du sol, on note la perturbation de la diversité floristique par l’utilisation répétée du glyphosate quand le transgène confère la tolérance à un herbicide. Une étude de simulation de culture transgénique résistante au glyphosate avec le ma s a permis de suivre les flux de pollen entre les cultures de ma s et entre la culture de ma s et les adventices. Cette étude a permis de suivre également l’effet du glyphosate sur les adventices pendant trois ans. En C te d’Ivoire, ce flux de gènes peut être transporté sur de longues distances malgré l’existence de barrière naturelle. Cependant le flux de gènes entre le ma s transgénique et les adventices est beaucoup plus complexe et doit nécessairement remplir plusieurs conditions dont la proximité de l’adventice à la culture, le mode de reproduction et la simultanéité de la floraison entre l’adventice et la culture et la compatibilité génétique. L’utilisation répétée du glyphosate au même endroit entra ne une réduction importante de la diversité floristique et l’apparition de nouvelles adventices.

33% Classification Accuracy Improvement in a Motor Imagery Brain Computer Interface  [PDF]
E. Bou Assi, S. Rihana, M. Sawan
Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering (JBiSE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jbise.2017.106025
Abstract: A right-hand motor imagery based brain-computer interface is proposed in this work. Such a system requires the identification of different brain states and their classification. Brain signals recorded by electroencephalography are naturally contaminated by various noises and interferences. Ocular artifact removal is performed by implementing an auto-matic method “Kmeans-ICA” which does not require a reference channel. This method starts by decomposing EEG signals into Independent Components; artefactual ones are then identified using Kmeans clustering, a non-supervised machine learning technique. After signal preprocessing, a Brain computer interface system is implemented; physiologically interpretable features extracting the wavelet-coherence, the wavelet-phase locking value and band power are computed and introduced into a statistical test to check for a significant difference between relaxed and motor imagery states. Features which pass the test are conserved and used for classification. Leave One Out Cross Validation is performed to evaluate the performance of the classifier. Two types of classifiers are compared: a Linear Discriminant Analysis and a Support Vector Machine. Using a Linear Discriminant Analysis, classification accuracy improved from 66% to 88.10% after ocular artifacts removal using Kmeans-ICA. The proposed methodology outperformed state of art feature extraction methods, namely, the mu rhythm band power.

Abstract: The aim of our study was to assess in our context, the efficacy of Rifaxim in improving the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome particularly in its diarrheal (IBS-D) or mixed (IBS-DC) component and therefore assess its impact on patients’ quality of life. Patients and methods: This was an uncontrolled, non-comparative prospective cohort study of a single group of patients. Patients recruitment was done in two University Hospitals for 6 months (September 2015-February 2016). Were included ambulatory patients, male or female, aged 18 - 75 years, with diarrheic IBS (IBS-D) or mixed IBS (IBS-DC) diagnosed according to Rome III criteria and who agreed to participate in the study. Each patient received 400mg Rifaximin × 2/d for 15 days. The overall assessment of the efficacy of treatment at D15 (end of treatment) and D30 (2 weeks post-treatment) was the primary criterion of judgment. The statistical tests used were the Chi-square test and Fisher’s exact test for the qualitative variables and Student’s test for the quantitative variables. Results: A total number of 30 patients (16 women) with an average age of 44.5 ± 13.9 years were included. The overall assessment of symptoms by the patient with the Likert scale found 28 (93.3%) patients, 12 (40%) patients and 10 patients (33.3%) for a scale ≥2 at D0, D15 and D30 respectively. The assessment of the intensity of pain or abdominal discomfort found at D0, D15 and D30 respectively: 27(90%), 13(43.4%) and 6(20.1%) patients who had an EVA score > 2. The mean score for Francis to assess the improved quality of life was 247.1 ± 97.4 at D0, 99.8 ± 63.1 at D15 and 128.8 ± 70.6 at D30. Conclusion: There is a good overall improvement of symptoms in our patients suffering from IBS-D or mixed (IBS-DC) on Rifaximin with improvement of the quality of life.

African Journal of Biotechnology , 2010,
Abstract: This study aims to investigate the diversity of fouling and boring organisms damaging wood material at Turkish coasts. Trials were carried out at six harbour sites throughout the seas surrounding Turkey. Various Euopean and tropical wood samples were hanged down at a depth of six meters in the sea for a period of one year. Identification of the organisms obtained from wood panels revealed the presence of five wood borer and 26 fouling species. skenderun harbour had the highest boring organism diversity (five species) and it was followed by Trabzon and Finike harbours (three species) and Bandirma, Eregli and Alacati harbours (two species). The two molluscan boring species, Teredo navalis and Lyrodus pedicellatus were observed at all harbour sites, but Nototeredo norvegica was at Trabzon and skenderun harbours only. Bankia carinata was obtained only at skenderun harbour and the crustacean wood borer Limnoria tripunctata was found at Finike and skenderun harbours. All native tree species, except for the olive, were significantly damaged by fouling and boring organisms.

Konuralp Tip Dergisi , 2011,
Abstract: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is seen 5-10% of women in reproductive period. Although many clinical, laboratory and experimental data are present, there are still doubts about the pathophysiology. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome can be considered as a multifactorial disease that is occurred with the synergistic effect of several systems as a result of the malfunction such as hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction, disorder of steroidogenesis, intraovarian factors, insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, obesity, genetic factors, abnormal granulosa cells, enzymatic defects. In this review, we aimed to investigate these issues.
