Anwar Ali Jamali, Jawaid Hussain Lighari, Shamasddin Shaikh, Ghulam Mustafa Jamali, Bhojo Mal Tanwani, Muhammad Aslam Channa, Ameer Ali Jamali, Muhammad Ali Suhail
Journal of Tuberculosis Research (JTR) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jtr.2018.64023
Abstract: Background: A relationship among vitamin D and pulmonary tuberculosis. Objective: To conclude the occurrence of Vitamin D insufficiency in subjects suffering from pulmonary TB. Design: This was a cross sectional study. Setting: Current study was performed at department of medicine, Peoples Medical College Hospital Nawabshah starting from January 2017 to December 2017. Samples: 385 AFB positive subjects of pulmonary tuberculosis after achieving the criteria of selection were recruited. Material and Methods: After a brief discussion, the patients were characterized for variable evaluation such as age, gender, sputum AFB and duration of disease and presence of low vitamin D levels. Sputum AFB criterion was used for Data collection. Fasting blood samples were collected for analysis of vitamin D levels in all subjects of AFB positive pulmonary tuberculosis. Results: In 385 diagnosed patients with smear positive PTB, 273 (70.9%) males and 112 (29.1%) were female. Vitamin D levels were within normal or sufficient range in 134 (34.8%), below normal range in 251 (65.2%) cases (insufficient in 09.56% (24/251) and deficient in 90.43% (227/251) cases). Conclusion: Decreased levels of vitamin D were common in subjects with AFB smear Positive PTB cases.
Gynecomastia in a Rheumatoid Arthritis Patient; a Rare Side Effect of Methotrexate Therapy  [PDF]
Soorih Shaikh, Sarwan Shaikh
Open Journal of Internal Medicine (OJIM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojim.2016.63011
Abstract: We are reporting a case of a 51-year-old male patient with 3-year history of Rheumatoid Arthritis who developed gynecomastia 2 - 3 months after starting Methotrexate (MTX) therapy, without folate supplementation. Two months after stopping MTX therapy and initiating folate supplementation, gynecomastia started resolving. Very few cases of gynecomastia due to MTX therapy have been reported worldwide, although it is a rare yet a significant occurrence and should always be considered in male patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Instability of Thermally Conducting Self-Gravitating Systems  [PDF]
Shaista Shaikh, Aiyub Khan
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2010.110010
Abstract: The gravitational instability of a thermally conducting self-gravitating system permeated by a uniform and oblique magnetic field has been analyzed in the framework of Tsallis’ nonextensive theory for possible mod-ifications in the Jeans’ instability criterion. It is concluded that the instability criterion is indeed modified into one that depends explicitly on the nonextensive parameter. The influence of thermal conductivity on the system stability is also examined.

Absos Ali Shaikh, Helaluddin Ahmad
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/am.2011.211184
Abstract: The object of the present paper is to introduce the notion of generalized φ-recurrent Sasakian manifold and study its various geometric properties with the existence of such notion. Among others we study generalized concircularly φ-recurrent Sasakian manifolds. The existence of generalized φ-recurrent Sasakian manifold is given by a proper example.
Medical Biotechnology: Problems and Prospects in Bangladesh
Shaikh Mizan
Journal of Enam Medical College , 2013, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.3329/jemc.v3i1.13873
Abstract: Biotechnology is the knowledge and techniques of developing and using biological systems for deriving special products and services. The age-old technology took a new turn with the advent of recombinant DNA techniques, and boosted by the development of other molecular biological techniques, cell culture techniques and bioinformatics. Medical biotechnology is the major thrust area of biotechnology. It has brought revolutions in medicine – quick methods for diagnosing diseases, generation of new drugs and vaccines, completely novel approach of treatment are only a few to mention. The industrial and financial bulk of the industry mushroomed very rapidly in the last three decades, led by the USA and western advanced nations. Asian countries like China, India, South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore joined late, but advancing forward in a big way. In all the Asian countries governments supported the initiatives of the expert and entrepreneur community, and invested heavily in its development. Bangladesh has got great potential in developing biotechnology and reaping its fruits. However, lack of commitment and patriotism, and too much corruption and irresponsibility in political and bureaucratic establishment are the major hindrance to the development of biotechnology in Bangladesh.
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia
Shaikh Nissar
Journal of Emergencies, Trauma and Shock , 2011,
Abstract: In the last 7 decades heparin has remained the most commonly used anticoagulant. Its use is increasing, mainly due to the increase in the number of vascular interventions and aging population. The most feared complication of heparin use is heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT). HIT is a clinicopathologic hypercoagulable, procoagulant prothrombotic condition in patients on heparin therapy, and decrease in platelet count by 50% or to less than 100,000, from 5 to 14 days of therapy. This prothrombotic hypercoagulable state in HIT patient is due to the combined effect of various factors, such as platelet activation, mainly the formation of PF4/heparin/IgG complex, stimulation of the intrinsic factor, and loss of anticoagulant effect of heparin. Diagnosis of HIT is done by clinical condition, heparin use, and timing of thrombocytopenia, and it is confirmed by either serotonin release assay or ELISA assay. Complications of HIT are venous/arterial thrombosis, skin gangrene, and acute platelet activation syndrome. Stopping heparin is the basic initial treatment, and Direct Thrombin Inhibitors (DTI) are medication of choice in these patients. A few routine but essential procedures performed by using heparin are hemodialysis, Percutaneous Coronary Intervention, and Cardiopulmonary Bypass; but it cannot be used if a patient develops HIT. HIT patients with unstable angina, thromboembolism, or indwelling devices, such as valve replacement or intraaortic balloon pump, will require alternative anticoagulation therapy. HIT can be prevented significantly by keeping heparin therapy shorter, avoiding bovine heparin, using low-molecular weight heparin, and stopping heparin use for flush and heparin lock.
An obstetric emergency called peripartum cardiomyopathy!
Shaikh Nissar
Journal of Emergencies, Trauma and Shock , 2010,
Abstract: Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a rare obstetric emergency affecting women in late pregnancy or up to five months of postpartum period. The etiology of PPCM is still not known. It has potentially devastating effects on mother and fetus if not treated early. The signs, symptoms and treatment of PPCM are similar to that of heart failure. Early diagnosis and proper management is the corner stone for better outcome of these patients. The only way to prevent PPCM is to avoid further pregnancies.
Common complication of crush injury, but a rare compartment syndrome
Shaikh Nissar
Journal of Emergencies, Trauma and Shock , 2010,
Abstract: Compartment syndrome (CS) is a common complication of crush injury but it is rare to find bilateral gluteal compartment syndrome (BGCS). Only six cases of BGCS have been reported in the literature. This syndrome has been reported after crush injury, drug overdose, surgical positioning, and vascular surgery. Apart from CS, crush injury is associated with multi-system adverse effects and these patients are at high risk for renal failure and sepsis. CS patients may present with dehydration; coagulation disorders; elevated creatine phosphokinase and myoglobin levels; hyperkalemia and hypocalcaemia, which may cause life-threatening arrhythmias and therefore need urgent and aggressive therapy. The early goal in these patients is prevention of acute renal failure with aggressive fluid therapy, alkalinization of urine, and forced diuresis. Early treatment of hyperkalemia, antibiotic therapy, immunoprophylaxis, and wound care will minimize the risk of arrhythmias and sepsis. CS must be considered when any patient is diagnosed with crush injury syndrome. CS is defined as elevation of interstitial/intracompartmental pressure, leading to microvascular and myoneural dysfunction and secondary hypoxia; it may cause functional loss or even death if not detected early and treated properly. The increase in pressure in one or all compartments of the gluteal region causes CS with devastating effects on muscle and neurovascular bundles. CS is traditionally diagnosed on the basis of five ′p′s: pain, pallor, paraesthesia, pulselessness and paralysis. Diagnosis of gluteal CS is difficult as the peripheral pulses are preserved and the condition is usually only diagnosed when neurological abnormality is noticed. Diagnosis of CS can be made by direct measurement of the compartment pressure and magnetic resonance imaging or computerized tomography. Gluteal CS is managed by fasciotomy and debridement of necrosed tissue, with secondary closure of fascia. A high index of suspicion is necessary for the early diagnosis of gluteal CS, and this will reduce the disability and complications as a consequence of this syndrome. The acute-care physician, the intensivist, and the trauma surgeon must be aware of this rare syndrome, as it can result in multiorgan dysfunction and death. Here we report a case of bilateral gluteal CS that was successfully treated in our trauma intensive care unit.
Emergency management of fat embolism syndrome
Shaikh Nissar
Journal of Emergencies, Trauma and Shock , 2009,
Abstract: Fat emboli occur in all patients with long-bone fractures, but only few patients develop systemic dysfunction, particularly the triad of skin, brain, and lung dysfunction known as the fat embolism syndrome (FES). Here we review the FES literature under different subheadings. The incidence of FES varies from 1-29%. The etiology may be traumatic or, rarely, nontraumatic. Various factors increase the incidence of FES. Mechanical and biochemical theories have been proposed for the pathophysiology of FES. The clinical manifestations include respiratory and cerebral dysfunction and a petechial rash. Diagnosis of FES is difficult. The other causes for the above-mentioned organ dysfunction have to be excluded. The clinical criteria along with imaging studies help in diagnosis. FES can be detected early by continuous pulse oximetry in high-risk patients. Treatment of FES is essentially supportive. Medications, including steroids, heparin, alcohol, and dextran, have been found to be ineffective.
