Impact of Firm Specific Factors on Profitability of Firms in Food Sector  [PDF]
Nousheen Tariq Bhutta, Arshad Hasan
Open Journal of Accounting (OJAcct) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojacct.2013.22005
Abstract: The aim of this study is to examine the impact of firm specific and macroeconomic factors on profitability of food sector in Pakistan. This study explores the impact of firm specific factors on profitability of companies listed in food sector ofKarachistock market in the presence of food inflation by employing multivariate regression analysis in common effect setting for the period of 2002-2006. The firm specific factors include debt to equity, tangibility, growth and size and macroeconomic factor include food inflation. Findings of study reveal the presence of significant negative relationship between size and profitability. However, tangibility, growth of the firm and food inflation are found insignificantly positively related to profitability. Similarly, an insignificant negative relationship is observed between debt to equity ratio of firm and its profitability. Empirical results provide evidence that the profitability of food sector is shaped by firm specific factors and not macroeconomic variables. One important limitation of study is that it only considers one macroeconomic factor i.e. food inflation. In future studies more macroeconomic factors will be explored to examine their impact on profitability of food sector firms. However, this study still provides significant insight about dynamics of profitability in food sector and helps in making optimal decisions of resource allocation in food sector of Pakistani equity market.

Nousheen Tariq Bhutta, Syed Zulfiqar Ali Shah
Open Journal of Accounting (OJAcct) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojacct.2014.31002
Abstract: The study investigates the impact of corporate governance on investor reaction. This is the first study till date that addresses this gap in literature. The design of the study comprises of corporate governance, investor reaction. Data was taken from 125 non-financial sector of Pakistani companies listed at KSE for the period of 2005-2010. Data was extracted from balance sheet analysis (SBP report), KSE website and annual reports of companies. Correlation (individual and composite) and linear regression tests were applied to validate the outcomes. The results confirm that there is no impact of corporate governance on investor reaction and relationship between them is negative. This implies the inefficiency of financial market where noise trades create sentiment.

Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.312018
Abstract: Watta satta marriage is due to several reasons as like social, cultural and economic. Watta satta marriages subsist in rural areas of Southern Punjab Pakistan. Such marriages are usually com-promised marriages and this issue demands investigation to explore the main reasons of this custom and related problems created by it. The researchers recognized the causes of watta satta and certain strategies to control it. The sample of present study consists of all married males and females from Southern Punjab Pakistan. Researchers also investigated that illiteracy and poverty are the major causes. The Chi-Square test was applied to see the correlation and the result showed significant and direct relationship between variables.

Temsirolimus in the treatment of relapsed or refractory mantle cell lymphoma
Nousheen Samad, Anas Younes
OncoTargets and Therapy , 2010, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/OTT.S8147
Abstract: irolimus in the treatment of relapsed or refractory mantle cell lymphoma Review (3517) Total Article Views Authors: Nousheen Samad, Anas Younes Published Date September 2010 Volume 2010:3 Pages 167 - 178 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/OTT.S8147 Nousheen Samad1, Anas Younes2 1Division of Pharmacy, Pharmacy Clinical Programs, 2Department of Lymphoma and Myeloma, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA Abstract: Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a rare and aggressive subtype of lymphoma associated with a poor prognosis. Chemotherapy is the mainstay of frontline treatment for patients with this disease. Despite high response rates to combination chemotherapy regimens, the majority of patients relapse within a few years of treatment. Therefore, finding efficacious treatments for relapsed or refractory disease has become a growing area of clinical research. The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is responsible for integrating cell signals from growth factors, hormones, and nutrients and communicating energy status. Scientific research on aberrant molecular pathways in cancer has revealed that several proteins along the mTOR pathway may be upregulated in this and other types of lymphoma. Temsirolimus is the first mTOR inhibitor that has shown clinical efficacy in treating MCL that has relapsed after frontline treatments.

Oman Medical Journal , 2010,
Abstract: Ibuprofen was the first member of Propionic acid derivatives introduced in 1969. It is a popular domestic and over the counter analgesic and antipyretic for adults and children. Ibuprofen has been rated as the safest conventional NSAID by spontaneous adverse drug reaction reporting systems in the UK. This article summarizes the main pharmacological effects, therapeutical applications and adverse drug reactions, drug-drug interactions and food drug interactions of ibuprofen that have been reported especially during the last 10 years.
