Difficulties in Treatment and Management of Epilepsy and Challenges in New Drug Development
Abdul Wahab
Pharmaceuticals , 2010, DOI: 10.3390/ph3072090
Abstract: Epilepsy is a serious neurological disorder that affects around 50 million people worldwide. Almost 30% of epileptic patients suffer from pharmacoresistance, which is associated with social isolation, dependent behaviour, low marriage rates, unemployment, psychological issues and reduced quality of life. Currently available antiepileptic drugs have a limited efficacy, and their negative properties limit their use and cause difficulties in patient management. Antiepileptic drugs can provide only symptomatic relief as these drugs suppress seizures but do not have ability to cure epileptogenesis. The long term use of antiepileptic drugs is limited due to their adverse effects, withdrawal symptoms, deleterious interactions with other drugs and economic burden, especially in developing countries. Furthermore, some of the available antiepileptic drugs may even potentiate certain type of seizures. Several in vivo and in vitro animal models have been proposed and many new antiepileptic drugs have been marketed recently, but large numbers of patients are still pharmacoresistant. This review will highlight the difficulties in treatment and management of epilepsy and the limitations of available antiepileptic drugs and animal seizure models.
Bridging Literature and Linguistics
Abdul Wahab
TEFLIN Journal , 2002,
Abstract: : Two majors linguistics and literature in the schools of letters both in the state and private universities throughout Indonesia are commonly separated sharply. Courses of literature in the Department of Linguistics are offered minimally, such that the students of linguistics are not given a conducive atmosphere to express their literary appreciation. Likewise, courses of linguistics in the Department of Literature are very restricted, so that the students of literature are unable to analyze literary works from the points of linguistic view. This paper tries to bridge linguistics and literature. The attempt to bridge linguistics and literature is based on three postulates: (I) literature consists of linguistic objects designed with an artistic end, (2) linguistic objects are formal objects, and (3) a formal account of linguistic object designed with an artistic end approximates a formal account of that artistic design. Two major directions in the approaches and emphases will be presented in the paper exogenous and endogenous. Exogenous approach tries to search for adequate description of (1) poetic language as contrasted with ordinary language, (2) language of a particular author contrasted with that of other authors, and (3) a particular literary work contrasted with other works of the same author. This part touches upon three areas of exogenous approach isolation, description, and characterization. Endogenous, on the hand, is based upon an assumption that a writer exhibits, probably without realizing it, certain systematic preferences for particular aspects of linguistic patterns. Planning a bridge between linguistics and literature is by no means without problems. Therefore, this paper also presents some possible solutions.
Bridging Literature and Linguistics

Stability and Resolution Analysis of Topological Derivative Based Localization of Small Electromagnetic Inclusions
Abdul Wahab
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: The aim of this article is to elaborate and rigorously analyze a topological derivative based imaging framework for locating an electromagnetic inclusion of diminishing size from boundary measurements of the tangential component of scattered magnetic field at a fixed frequency. The inverse problem of inclusion detection is formulated as an optimization problem in terms of a filtered discrepancy functional and the topological derivative based imaging functional obtained therefrom. The sensitivity and resolution analysis of the imaging functional is rigorously performed. It is substantiated that the Rayleigh resolution limit is achieved. Further, the stability of the reconstruction with respect to measurement and medium noises is investigated and the signal-to-noise ratio is evaluated in terms of the imaginary part of free space fundamental magnetic solution.
Examining the Relationship of Organizational Citizenship Behavior with Organizational Commitment and Equity Perception of Secondary School Administrators  [PDF]
Abdul Wahab Pourgaz, Abdul Gader Naruei, Hossein Jenaabadi
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2015.66079
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between organizational citizenship behavior with organizational commitment and equity perception of secondary school administrators in Zahedan. The descriptive-correlational method was applied. The population of the study included all secondary school administrators in Zahedan in 2013-2014 academic year (N = 92). Using the sample size formula, 78 administrators were selected as respondents. Data collection instruments included Podsakoff’s Organizational Citizenship Behavior Inventory (2000), Strone’s Equity Perception Inventory (1996) and Steers and Porter’s Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (1998). The content validity of the questionnaires was checked and their reliability was estimated using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient which was 0.93, 0.83 and 0.72, respectively. To investigate the research questions, Pearson correlation coefficient and stepwise regression analysis were used. Based on the findings of the research, there was a significant positive correlation between organizational citizenship behavior and both organizational commitment and equity perception of secondary school administrators in Zahedan. Considering the components of organizational citizenship behavior, there was a significant positive relationship between altruism and conscientiousness and equity perception, and between conscientiousness, sportsmanship, civic virtue and respect and organizational commitment. Moreover, there was a significant negative correlation between equity perception and organizational commitment. With regard to the components of organizational citizenship behavior, conscientiousness could predict equity perception and tribute could predict organizational commitment.
Necessity of Two More Space Lattices
Mohammad Abdul Wahab
Physics , 2009,
Abstract: Existing fourteen Bravais/space lattices are found to be inadequate for proper crystallographic representation and some conceptual understandings. The complicacies, confusions and ambiguities encountered in the representation of trigonal/rhomohedral and hexagonal lattices have been removed by suggesting the need of two more space lattices in the form of Hexagonal Close Packing (HCP) and Rhombohedral Close Packing (RCP) with appropriate justifications. Henceforth, these two lattices will be called as Wahab lattices and the sixteen lattices together as Bravais Wahab lattices (or space lattices as before). This finding will have immediate as well as far reaching implications.
Some Anisotropic Viscoelastic Green Functions
Elie Bretin,Abdul Wahab
Mathematics , 2011,
Abstract: In this paper, we compute the closed form expressions of elastody- namic Green functions for three different viscoelastic media with simple type of anisotropy. We follow Burridge et al. [Proc. Royal Soc. of London. 440(1910): (1993)] to express unknown Green function in terms of three scalar functions $\phi_i$, by using the spectral decomposition of the Christoffel tensor associated with the medium. The problem of computing Green function is, thus reduced to the resolution of three scalar wave equations satisfied by $\phi_i$, and subsequent equations with $\phi_i$ as source terms. To describe viscosity effects, we choose an empirical power law model which becomes well known Voigt model for quadratic frequency losses.
An Assessment of CPTED Principles in Relation to Bullying Behaviour  [PDF]
Azna Abdul Wahab, Siti Rasidah Md Sakip, Halmi Zainol
Advances in Applied Sociology (AASoci) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/aasoci.2018.81002
Abstract: This paper presents a preliminary study examining the potential influences of building design on bullying behavior and experiences, of a sample of Malaysia secondary school students. Bullying in school may be an early stage of the developmental sequence that serves as a strong predictor of delinquency and future crime. Through the discussion of findings in previous studies, environmental design approach is as one of the methods to bring down the level of crime in school. Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) is an approach that uses environmental design as a tool to reduce crime from both the physical and the psychological aspects. The features of physical environment such as street layout, building design, lighting and physical decay can affect the occurrence and behaviour of criminals. The shortcomings in the physical environment could open up the opportunity for offenders. Thus, this study seeks to determine if there is a possibility that the actual physical environment in which students spend greater part of their day can affect behaviour, which in turn, can lead to violence in school. A survey was conducted at four secondary schools in Shah Alam, Selangor with a random sample of 406 students from Form 1, Form 2 and Form 3 involving the observation of 32 school blocks. Three principles of Crime CPTED were analyzed in the school environment. The results indicated that there is a significant difference in territoriality and school maintenance which results in the forming of the negative environment in the schools. It was found that this, in turn, affects the frequency of bullying occurring among the students in school.
THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CUSTOMER SERVICES IN THE ELECTRICAL AND ENERGY INDUSTRY
Rabiah ABDUL WAHAB,Mazlina SUHAIMI
Revista de Administratie Publica si Politici Sociale , 2012,
Abstract: The objectives of this paper are to determine the service quality perceptions and the effectiveness of electronic services and the relationship between training and competencies. Two data collection methods which are questionnaire and observation were used to collect the data for this study. A total of 80 sets of questionnaires were distributed among the users of such services in Melaka, Malaysia. The study indicates that there is a significant positive relationship between training requirements and effectiveness. It can be implied that training of employees in the electric and energy company is a necessity for them to increase their effectiveness. Future work suggested that customer service survey should be conducted among all government and private firms especially Government lead Companies (GLC) so that they can improve their customer services.
Programme Outcomes Assessment Models in Engineering Faculties
Abdul Wahab Mohammad,Azami Zaharim
Asian Social Science , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v8n16p115
Abstract: Malaysia is currently a member of Washington Accord which recognises substantial equivalence in the accreditation of qualifications for engineering programme among member countries. Under this agreement, assessment of programme outcomes (PO) is now mandatory for all engineering programmes in Malaysia. However, the typical PO assessment model practised by many engineering programmes resulted in vague assessment methods and as a result failed to show concrete continual quality improvement (CQI). The major issues with the model are with regard to the aspect of unclear performance criteria, grades as measurement indicators, lack of evidence, detached used of indirect methods and unclear CQI. A new model which is more holistic and based on looking at each PO as a major thrust with specific performance criteria is proposed. It is expected that the new model will allow one to objectively evaluate whether the students have achieved the criteria, subsequently facilitating CQI implementation within the programme and produced quality engineering graduates.
