Comparative evaluation of treatment with low-dose aspirin plus dipyridamole versus aspirin only in patients with acute ischaemic stroke
Arnarsdottir Lola,Hjalmarsson Clara,Bokemark Lena,Andersson Bj?rn
BMC Neurology , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2377-12-67
Abstract: Background Previous studies have suggested that pre-stroke treatment with low-dose aspirin (A) could reduce the severity of acute ischaemic stroke, but less is known on the effect of pre-stroke treatment with a combination of aspirin and dipyridamole (A + D) and post-stroke effects of these drugs. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of this drug combination on acute and long-term prognosis of ischaemic stroke. Methods Patients without atrial fibrillation admitted to the stroke unit with acute ischaemic stroke (n = 554) or TIA (n = 108) were studied during acute hospital care and up to 12 months after discharge from hospital. Results Prior to acute stroke 62 patients were treated with A + D while 247 patients were treated with A only. No beneficial effects of the combination A + D compared to A only were noted on stroke severity and/or acute in-hospital mortality. However, survival analysis by Cox-proportional hazard model demonstrated lower 12-months all-cause mortality in patients discharged with A + D (n = 275) compared with patients on A only (HR, 0.52; CI, 0.32-0.86; p = 0.011; n = 262) after adjusting for age, baseline NIHSS, previous stroke, previous myocardial infarction and type 2 diabetes. We also noted a tendency towards lower all-cause mortality at 3 months with use of A + D, but this was not statistically significant (p = 0.12). Conclusions Pre-stroke treatment with a combination of low-dose A + D does not reduce the severity of acute stroke, nor does it reduce the acute in-hospital mortality. However, treatment with A + D at discharge from hospital is seemingly associated with lower long-term mortality compared with A only, contrary to the results from previous randomised studies. However, our results must be interpreted with extreme caution considering the non-randomised study design.
The Efficiency Measurement of Indonesian Universities Based on a Fuzzy Data Envelopment Analysis  [PDF]
Umi Mahmudah, Muhamad Safiih Lola
Open Journal of Statistics (OJS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojs.2016.66085
Abstract: The main objective of this study is to measure the relative efficiency of Indonesian universities in 2015. There are twenty five DMUs with four inputs and five outputs that are analyzed. Due to the low number of Indonesian scientific publications, this study analyses the performance of the top 25 universities based on the Webometrics ranking as it has been used as one of the indicators of university achievements by the Higher Education of Indonesia. The Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is used to obtain the scores of efficiency, while the Fuzzy approach is applied to address the possibility of errors from the auditor’s assessment in determining the input and output variables correctly. The FDEA can be used in measuring the universities performances under imprecise inputs and outputs. Both the CRS (constant returns to scale) and the VRS (variable returns to scale) models are presented. The empirical results show that 36 percent of universities perform efficiently on the CRS model while 52 percent of universities have efficient performances under the VRS model. Furthermore, the well-known universities have shown relatively low scores, which indicate they need to improve their performances in publishing scientific work, as well as providing useful information to the public through the official websites. Generally, the results of the VRS model are better than the CRS model for both the DEA and the FDEA methods.
The Effect of Boiling on the Nutrients and Anti-Nutrients in Two non Conventional Vegetables

Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2009,
Abstract: The effect of boiling on the nutrient and anti-nutrient composition of two vegetables Solanum nigrum and Solanecio biafrae was investigated. The vegetables were boiled and the boiled and raw samples were analysed for proximate composition and some anti nutritional compounds. The protein, ash, fat and fibre in Solanum nigrum was found to be 4.63, 2.99, 0.96 and 1.13%, respectively while Solanecio biafrae were 4.03, 2.86, 0.92 and 1.05% for protein crude ash, fat and fibre, respectively. All the nutrient contents were reduced after boiling with a percentage of between 28 and 9.78% with the exception of ash where the percentage loss was 59.79 and 58.52% in Solanecio biafrae and Solanum nigrum, respectively. All the antinutritional compounds investigated were found in the vegetable. The Phytate, tannin, nitrate and oxalate in Solanum nigrum was 1.65, 0.83, 0.36 and 0.50%, respectively and 1.88, 0.92, 0.33 and 0.46% was recorded for Solanecio biafrae for phytate, tannin, nitrate and oxalate, respectively. These antinutritional compounds were reduced after boiling by between 39.7% in Tannin and 20% in Oxalate. These vegetables were not rich in nutrients like some other conventional vegetables; they were also low in antinutritional content. Most of the nutrients are stable after processing except the minerals as indicated by the ash result, yet the antinutrient were easily destroyed by boiling.

Effectiveness of macrophage cells autotransplantation in the treatment of purulent endobronchitis in children
Lola Muhamadieva
Medical and Health Science Journal , 2011,
Abstract: We used method of autotransplantation of macrophage cells in the treatment of purulent endobronchitis of different etiology in children. 30 patients (14 boys and 16 girls) at the age from 1 to 9 years old were examined. Bronchological investigation of patients diagnosed one-sided purulent endobronchitis. The positive dynamics of the cytological indexes and clinical symptoms have proved the effectiveness of this method.
The state of immune system after vaccination of children with allergic diseases

Medical and Health Science Journal , 2012,
Abstract: The problem of assessment and analysis of the immune system for diagnostic purposes in children with allergic diseases during vaccination process is very relevant and scientifically proved issue. Analysis of serological studies of the results of measles vaccination in children with allergic diseases has found 2-fold significantly lower rates of protective antibody titers to this antigen, in comparison with control group. Evaluation of immune disorders has shown immunodeficiency of the 2nd and 3rd degree in cellular and humoral immunity in high rate of surveyed children. Analysis of expression level of CD45 in test-system with MMR vaccine in vitro revealed significant changes of this indicator in children with allergic diseases, in comparison with children without these illnesses.
Laser therapy in the treatment of nonspecific lung diseases in children.

Medical and Health Science Journal , 2010,
Abstract: Endobronchial laser therapy was used in children with nonspecific lung diseases. Effectiveness of laser therapy was evaluated by use of cytogram of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF). There was observation of 29 children with nonspecific lung diseases: they had been performed endobronchial laser therapy with use of gallium arsenide laser. This investigation has proved the effectiveness of laser therapy, and the method is recommended for treatment of nonspecific lung diseases in children.

Abstract: The title of this volume of essays comes in handy: Latin American Shakespeares, in the plural, hinting at there being as many Shakespeares as there are productions, adaptations, translations, and films based on his work. Jorge Luis Borges himself affirmed, “When I think of Shakespeare I think of a multitude” (qtd in Tiffany 146). Nothing new here, since performance theory has made a point of not seeing the bard as one canonical, unified author, but as plural. The good news brought by this book is that it enables us to find out that so much has been written about Shakespeare in Latin America, especially in Brazil, Mexico and Argentina, while, alas, almost nothing appears from Paraguay or Bolivia. The editors, Bernice W. Kliman and Rick J. Santos, do not try to present hypotheses for this discrepancy, but the seventeen essays they select show a wide range of what has been studied in Brazil.
