Annals of Saudi Medicine , 2009,
Abstract: Background and Objectives: Previous randomized trials of the analgesic effects of sucrose, glucose, and a pacifier in term neonates have shown that the pacifier resulted in lower pain scores than glucose or sucrose, but the pacifier with and without sucrose did not differ. The current study was designed to assess the analgesic effect of pharmacologic (sucrose, water) and a non-pharmacologic measures (pacifier) in preterm infants and to find whether there is any synergism between these intervention in relieving pain during painful procedures. Patients and Methods: In this double-blind, randomized, controlled study, 36 preterm infants (mean 31 weeks gestational age, range 27 to 36 weeks) were randomly allocated to six different regimens (0.5 mL sterile water with pacifier, 0.5 mL sterile water without pacifier, 0.5 mL sucrose 24% with pacifier, 0.5 mL sucrose 24% without pacifier, pacifier alone and control group) during a stay in intensive care of up to 15 days. Pain scores were measured with the Premature Infant Pain Profile (PIPP), a validated behavioral acute pain scale. Results: Of all the regimens, the lowest pain scores occurred with the use of 24% sucrose solution combined with pacifier. The mean pain score for the combination of sucrose with pacifier was 0.7 as compared to 1.4 for the sterile water with pacifier group (P< .05). Conclusion: The synergistic effect of the combination of sucrose and non-nutritive sucking was clinically effective and safe in relieving the pain of simple procedures such as venipuncture or heel stick in preterm and term infants, but further research is needed on these interventions alone and in combination with other behav--ioral interventions in neonates.

Abstract and Applied Analysis , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/273017
Abstract: Using some potential theory tools and the Schauder fixed point theorem, we prove the existence of positive continuous solutions with a precise global behavior for the competitive semilinear elliptic system Δ=(), Δ=() in an exterior domain of ?2, subject to some Dirichlet conditions, where ≥1, ≥1, ≥0, ≥0 and the potentials , are nonnegative and satisfy some hypotheses related to the Kato class ().

International Journal of Differential Equations , 2009, DOI: 10.1155/2009/417606
Abstract: We discuss the existence of solutions for a nonlinear antiperiodic boundary value problem of integrodifferential equations of fractional order ∈(1,2]. The contraction mapping principle and Krasnoselskii's fixed point theorem are applied to establish the results.

Alsaedi Ahmed
Boundary Value Problems , 2011,
Abstract: We discuss the existence and uniqueness of the solutions of a second-order -point nonlocal boundary value problem by applying a generalized quasilinearization technique. A monotone sequence of solutions converging uniformly and quadratically to a unique solution of the problem is presented.

Existence and Analytic Approximation of Solutions of Duffing Type Nonlinear Integro-Differential Equation with Integral Boundary Conditions
Ahmed Alsaedi,Bashir Ahmad
Journal of Inequalities and Applications , 2009, DOI: 10.1155/2009/193169
Abstract: A generalized quasilinearization technique is developed to obtain a sequence of approximate solutions converging monotonically and quadratically to a unique solution of a boundary value problem involving Duffing type nonlinear integro-differential equation with integral boundary conditions. The convergence of order k (k≥2) for the sequence of iterates is also established. It is found that the work presented in this paper not only produces new results but also yields several old results in certain limits.
