Abstract: Background: As regard to adjuvant supplementations, nowadays dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is widely used all over the world and is considered to be a potential agent to ameliorate the assisted reproduction technologies outcomes of infertile women with poor ovarian reserve. Objective: To find out the role of DHEA supplementation in improving intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) outcome for infertile women with expected poor ovarian response in controlled ovarian stimulation. Setting: Assisted reproduction unit of Obstetrics and Gynecology Department, Faculty of Medicine, South Valley University, Egypt. Duration: From April 2016 to May 2018. Study Design: A randomized double-blinded controlled trial. Methods: One hundred and forty infertile women with expected poor ovarian response prepared for ICSI procedure were included in this study. Patients were divided into two groups; group I (DHEA group) included 70 patients received 25 mg DHEA 12 weeks prior to ICSI cycle and group II (placebo group) included 70 patients received a placebo. Results: There was a highly statistically significant difference in basal AFC at start of ICSI cycle in group I (who received DHEA supplementation for 12 weeks prior to ICSI procedure) than in group II (13.8 ± 5.3 versus 10.7 ± 4.6 respectively) with P < 0.001. There were mildly statistically significant differences between group I and group II as regard to increase in the number and quality of retrieved oocytes, increased in endometrial thickness, fertilization rate and embryo quality with p value < 0.05 but there was no statistically significant difference between the 2 groups as regard to pregnancy (chemical and clinical) rates (p value > 0.05).

Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OJOG) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojog.2019.97101
Abstract: Introduction: Placenta Accreta Spectrum (PAS) is associated with significant maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. The ideal conservative management still does not exist. We aimed to compare the outcome of cesarean section for PAS by a gynecologic oncologist-led team using the modified triple P approach and by a non-gynecologic oncologist-led team. Material and Methods: This is non-randomized controlled trial. Group A had Cesarean Section by gynecologic oncologist. Gynecologic oncologist-led team did all Cesarean Section following a modified triple P approach. The first P is for “Plan” the uterine incision. The second P for “Pelvic” devascularization by internal iliac artery ligation. The third P is for Placenta non-separation with resection of the myometrium. Group B had Cesarean Section by non-gynecologic oncologist-led team. The main outcome measures were the need for hysterectomy, amount of blood loss, and the management-related complications. Results: Group A had significantly less estimated blood loss, and received less number of backed RBCs units, and less operative time than group B. The uterus is preserved in all cases of group A and in 50% of cases of group B. The overall maternal morbidity rate was 17.5% in group A and 72.2% in group B. Conclusion: This study provides evidence that the modified triple P approach for PAS by gynecologic oncologist-led team presents lower maternal morbidity in comparison to surgery by non-gynecologic oncologist-led team.
Availability Equivalence Factors of a General Repairable Parallel-Series System  [PDF]
Abdelfattah Mustafa, Ammar M. Sarhan
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/am.2014.511164

The availability equivalence factors of a general repairable parallel-series system are discussed in this paper considering the availability function of the system. The system components are assumed to be repairable and independent but not identical. The life and repair times of the system components are exponentially distributed with different parameters. Two types of availability equivalent factors of the system are derived. The results derived in this paper generalize those given in the literature. A numerical example is introduced to illustrate how the idea of this work can be applied.

Influence of Ca Content on Binding Energy and Cooper Pairing in Y1-xCaxBa2Cu3O7-δ Compound  [PDF]
Bassam M. Mustafa, Abbas H. Rostam
World Journal of Condensed Matter Physics (WJCMP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/wjcmp.2015.51003
Abstract: In this research, the influence of calcium content on the binding energy and Cooper pairing is investigated for the high temperature superconducting Y1-xCaxBa2Cu3O7-δ compound where x = 0 - 0.2). This is done by using model considering that the formation of Cooper pairs happens during tunneling mechanism of holes between the two CuO2 layers in the YCBCO crystal which are considered as forming adjacent potential wells. In this work, we make some modifications on the mentioned model and a modified equation for the binding energy as a function of Ca concentration is formulated to study the effect of Ca content by considering the change in the distance between the CuO2 layer as a function of Ca. The calculated results agree very well with experimental results. This happens because the Ca2+ substitution for Y3+ leads to decreasing the distance between the two CuO2 layers and hence potential energy of the system will be decreased. This leads to decreasing the binding energy between the Cooper pairs, and decreasing the distance between the two CuO2 layers increasing the tunneling probability of holes between the two CuO2 layers and thus increasing conduction mechanism and thus increasing current density, but this will decrease the energy gap and as a result decrease the critical temperature. The calculated results agree very well with experimental results.

Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/am.2015.614206
Abstract: In this paper we propose a new lifetime model, called the odd generalized exponential gompertz distribution. We obtained some of its mathematical properties. Some structural properties of the new distribution are studied. The method of maximum likelihood is used for estimating the model parameters and the observed Fisher’s information matrix is derived. We illustrate the usefulness of the proposed model by applications to real data.

Abstract: An experimental study was performed on an adsorption refrigeration unit powered by a solar energy and equipped with three different types of activated carbon (1: Coconut, 2: Palm seeds 3: charcoal). In this Study design, factorial analysis and optimization of a prototype unit were described. The activated carbon coupled with methanol was used as an adsorbent-adsorbate pairs. Experimental tests were carried out on an adsorptive solar-powered refrigerator for the three pairs. The temperatures of the bed of each adsorber and the corresponding refrigerator temperature for both the adsorption and desorption cycles respectively were recorded and studied as a response. Then a factorial analysis was carried out considering the type of activated carbon and the times interval as factors. The results showed that coconut have the highest bed temperature during the day cycle with a mean of 77.5℃ and the lowest mean temperature during the night cycle with a mean of 12.9℃. In addition, it was found from the analysis that the coconut shell activated carbon has the highest coefficient of performance of 0.25.

The effect of sputtering current that flow in a carbon rod on the structural and transport properties of Si-C junction is studied. Si-C junction is fabricated by plasma sputtering in Argon gas atmosphere without catalysts with thickness of 20, 40 and 60 nm. Images of the specimen by scanning electron microscope (SEM) and atomic force microscope (AFM) show that the carbon layer is as carbon nanotubes with diameters about 20 - 30 nm. X-ray and Raman spectrums show peak characteristics of the carbon nanotubes, the G and D bands appear for all thicknesses indicating free of defect carbon nanotubes. Two parameters about the thickness of the carbon layer and the sputtering current for different thicknesses and currents were studied. Nanotubes evidence was clear. We noticed that the sputtering current and thickness of layers affect the structure of CNT layer leading to the formation of grains. Increasing plasma current led to decrease grain formation however increasing thickness ends to increase grain size; moreover it led to amorphous structure formation and this was proved through X-ray, Raman spectra and AFM images.
