Solution of wave-like equation based on Haar wavelet
Naresh Berwal,Dinesh Panchal,C. L. Parihar
Le Matematiche , 2012,
Abstract: Wavelet transform and wavelet analysis are powerful mathematical tools for many problems. Wavelet also can be applied in numerical analysis. In this paper, we apply Haar wavelet method to solve wave-like equation with initial and boundary conditions known. The fundamental idea of Haar wavelet method is to convert the differential equations into a group of algebraic equations, which involves a finite number or variables. The results and graph show that the proposed way is quite reasonable when compared to exact solution.

Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2015.64038

Background: Head and neck cancers (HNCs) constitute 5% of all cancers globally and are the most common cancers in India. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy have not been proved to be effective in advanced cases and the prognosis remains dismal. This underscores the need for newer treatment options in these cases. Nimotuzumab, an anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (anti-EGFR) monoclonal antibody, was safer when combined with chemo- or radio-therapy. Aim: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of concurrently administered nimotuzumab with chemo-radiotherapy in patients with advanced inoperable squamous cell carcinomas of head and neck (LASCCHN). Methods:This was an open-label, single arm study evaluating 57 patients with histologically confirmed inoperable LASCCHN (stages III and IV) and eastern co-operative oncology group (ECOG) performance status < 2. Informed consent was obtained from all patients. The patients were administered IV cisplatin 30 mg/m2and IV nimotuzumab 200 mg weekly for 6 weeks, along with radiotherapy of 6600 cGy over 33 fractions. Patients were evaluated over response evaluation criteria in solid tumors (RECIST) criteria 24 weeks after the last cycle of chemotherapy. Results: Mean age of patient was 50 years old (29 - 79 years old). The most common site of cancer was oral cavity (56.1%). Forty six patients (80.7%) completed 6 cycles of therapy. Objective response rate (ORR) was 80.7%, with 34 patients (59.6%) achieving complete response (CR), and 12 (21%) achieving partial response (PR). Stable disease (SD) was noted in 8 (14%) patients and progressive disease in 3 (5.2%) patients. Conclusion: Addition of nimotuzumab is a safe and efficacious option in patients with inoperable LASCCHN. Our observations confirm the available Phase II data. The long term survival benefits based on this encouraging response rate need to be further evaluated in this subset of cancer patients.

Sudesh Chaudhary, Naresh Kumar
Open Journal of Air Pollution (OJAP) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojap.2017.62006
Abstract: Considering the mounting evidences of the effects of air pollution on health, the present study was undertaken to assess the ambient air quality status in Sonepat region. The PM10 aerosol samples were collected from three sampling sites (DCRUST: Deenbandhu Chhotu Ram University of Science and Technology, University campus, Sector 14: residential cum commercial area, and traffic intersection along National Highway number 1) during January to July 2014 and studied for air quality, metal concentrations and their monthly variations. In addition, free fall dust samples were studied for soluble cations. PM10 concentration was found to be ranging from 120.00 μg/m3 to 569.59 μg/m3, 66.56 μg/m3 to 312.45 μg/m3 and 80.95 μg/m3 to 262.47 μg/m3 at NH-1, Sector-14 and DCRUST respectively. The concentrations of Na+,\"\", K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ at sector 14 Sonepat were 52.115 ppm, 6.755 ppm, 13.989 ppm, 105.845 ppm and 72.574 ppm, respectively. At DCRUST site, the concentrations of Na+, , K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ were 207.583 ppm, 0.550 ppm, 50.573 ppm, 90.659 ppm and 85.024 ppm, respectively. The heavy metals concentrations of Zn, Cu and Cr at NH-1 was 36 ppm, 17.5 ppm and 95.7 ppm, respectively. The concentration of Zn, Cu and Cr at NH-1 was found to be varying from not detected to 19.7 ppm, 2.1 ppm to 16.54 ppm and 7.24 ppm to 24.1 ppm, respectively. Thus, it was recommended that an integrated assessment of air pollution and health risk should be carried out in Sonepat region at regular intervals of time.

Ritu Berwal, N. Gopalan, Kshitij Chandel, Shri Prakash ,K. Sekhar
Journal of Vector Borne Diseases , 2006,
Abstract: Background & objectives: Plasmodium vivax is geographically widespread and responsible for >50% of malaria cases in India. Increased drug resistance of the parasite highlights the immediaterequirement of early and accurate diagnosis as well as new therapeutics. In view of this, the presentstudy was undertaken to amplify P. vivax (Indian strains) lactate dehydrogenase gene (PvLDH)which has been identified as a good target for antimalarials as well as diagnostics.Methods: P. vivax infected clinical blood samples were collected from southern part of India andwere tested with established diagnostic parameters (ICT, Giemsa staining). Total DNA was extractedfrom blood samples and subjected to PCR using two sets of primers, one for the amplification of fullPvLDH gene (951bp) and the other for a partial PvLDH gene fragment (422bp), covering a variableantigenic region (140aa) as compared to other plasmodial species.Results & conclusion: PCRs for both the full and partial gene targets were optimised and found to beconsistent when tested on several P. vivax positive clinical samples. In addition, full gene PCR wasfound to specifically detect only P. vivax DNA and could be used as a specific molecular diagnostictool. These amplified products can be cloned and expressed as a recombinant protein that might beuseful for the development and screening of antimalarials as well as for diagnostic purposes.
Rank-Me: A Java Tool for Ranking Team Members in Software Bug Repositories  [PDF]
Naresh Kumar Nagwani, Shrish Verma
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2012.54030
Abstract: In this paper a team member ranking technique is presented for software bug repositories. Member ranking is performed using numbers of attributes available in software bug repositories, and a ranked list of developers is generated who are participating in development of software project. This ranking is generated from the contribution made by the individual developers in terms of bugs fixed, severity and priority of bugs, reporting newer problems and comments made by the developers. The top ranked developers are the best contributors for the software projects. The proposed algorithm can also be used for classifying and rating the software bugs using the ratings of members participating in the software bug repository.
CLUBAS: An Algorithm and Java Based Tool for Software Bug Classification Using Bug Attributes Similarities  [PDF]
Naresh Kumar Nagwani, Shrish Verma
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2012.56050
Abstract: In this paper, a software bug classification algorithm, CLUBAS (Classification of Software Bugs Using Bug Attribute Similarity) is presented. CLUBAS is a hybrid algorithm, and is designed by using text clustering, frequent term calculations and taxonomic terms mapping techniques. The algorithm CLUBAS is an example of classification using clustering technique. The proposed algorithm works in three major steps, in the first step text clusters are created using software bug textual attributes data and followed by the second step in which cluster labels are generated using label induction for each cluster, and in the third step, the cluster labels are mapped against the bug taxonomic terms to identify the appropriate categories of the bug clusters. The cluster labels are generated using frequent and meaningful terms present in the bug attributes, for the bugs belonging to the bug clusters. The designed algorithm is evaluated using the performance parameters F-measures and accuracy. These parameters are compared with the standard classification techniques like Na?ve Bayes, Naive Bayes Multinomial, J48, Support Vector Machine and Weka’s classification using clustering algorithms. A GUI (Graphical User Interface) based tool is also developed in java for the implementation of CLUBAS algorithm.

Naresh Kumar Nagwani, Shrish Verma
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2012.512113

In this paper, a multi label variant of CLUBAS [1] algorithm, ML-CLUBAS (Multi Label-Classification of software Bugs Using Bug Attribute Similarity) is presented. CLUBAS is a hybrid algorithm, and is designed by using text clustering, frequent term calculations and taxonomic terms mapping techniques, and is an example of classification using clustering technique. CLUBAS is a single label algorithm, where one bug cluster is exactly mapped to a single bug category. However a bug cluster can be mapped into the more than one bug category in case of cluster label matches with the more than one category term, for this purpose ML-CLUBAS a multi label variant of CLUBAS is presented in this work. The designed algorithm is evaluated using the performance parameters F-measures and accuracy, number of clusters and purity. These parameters are compared with the CLUBAS and other multi label text clustering algorithms.

Critical Care , 2002, DOI: 10.1186/cc1460
Abstract: This report covers the 8th World Congress of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine and the pre-congress satellite meeting Ventilation and Oxygenation – Rainforest to Reef, held in Cairns, Australia, 23–26 October 2001, and the post-congress Symposium on Critical Care Nephrology, held in Melbourne, Australia, 1–3 November 2001.The world congress is one of the largest critical care meetings in the world, with participation from researchers and clinicians from all over the world. Despite the recent tragic world events more than 2000 delegates attended the meeting, which catered for anyone with an interest in critical care and was hosted jointly by the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS) and the Australian College of Critical Care Nurses, under the aegis of the World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine. Professor Malcolm McD Fisher of the Royal Northshore Hospital, St Leonards, New South Wales, Australia, presided over the conference.This report focuses on the various scientific and social issues that face us as clinicians, in terms of the diseases, the technology, and finally ethical and social issues.Dr Andrew Bersten of the Flinders Medical Centre, Bedford Park, South Australia, Australia, presented data on biological markers in ARDS. Surfactant protein B, a specific pulmonary epithelial marker with a short half-life, predicts the development of ARDS after an inciting event with high specificity and sensitivity. He stressed the need for large studies with multiple markers in predicting who will or will not develop ARDS.Dr Marco Ranieri of the Università di Bari, Ospedale Policlinico, Bari, Italy, presented his new strategy of ventilation with the use of the stress index, which uses the slope of the pressure-volume curve to avoid the risks of ventilator-induced lung injury.This was, by a long way, the session in which work was presented that could lead to fundamental changes in intensive care practice.

Abstract: Many of the heart diseases are closely associated with rise in the level of serum lipids, the condition known as ‘hyperlipidaemia’ which further leads to atherosclerosis. In Ayurvedic view, hyperlipidaemia could be considered analogous with increased dusht medo dhatu in the body which is caused by hypo functioning of medo-dhaatwaghi. According to Sharangdhara, any drug possessing laghu and tikshana properties, katu vipaka and ushana virya performs lekhan karma i.e. curretive and absorptive action on Dosha, Dhatu and Mala. Along with lekhan karma, owing to above said attributes, these drugs improve strength of agni particularly Jathragni and dhaatwagni which further reduces and ultimately stops production of Dhust Medo Dhatu in the body. The Lekhaniya Mahakashaya, mentioned in Charaka Samhita possesses above mentioned characteristics. The only need was to prove its hypolipidaemic effect in human body by conducting clinical trials. The present study proved this fact.
Extensions of the quantum Fano inequality
Naresh Sharma
Physics , 2008, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.78.012322
Abstract: Quantum Fano inequality (QFI) in quantum information theory provides an upper bound to the entropy exchange by a function of the entanglement fidelity. We give various Fano-like upper bounds to the entropy exchange and QFI is a special case of these bounds. These bounds also give an alternate derivation of the QFI.
