Lateral Thoracic Maningocele : Anaesthetic Implications
Nazeer Ahmed K
Al Ameen Journal of Medical Sciences , 2008,
Abstract: Meningomyelocele is a broad term representing herniation of extracranial contents through a congenital defect in the vertebral column. If only cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and meninges herniate, it is termed as a meningocele. A meningoencephalocele is herniation of neural elements along with meninges. Anaesthetic challenges in management of thoracic meningomyelocele include securing the airway with intubation in lateral or supine position, intraoperative prone position with its associated complications and accurate assessment of blood loss and prevention of hypothermia. We report a case of a thoracic meningocele posted for resection and discuss its anaesthetic implications

American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2015.67104
Abstract: A field study to evaluate the “growth and yield of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) under the influence of planting geometry and irrigation regimes” was carried out at Oilseeds Section, Agriculture Research Institute, Tandojam located at (25°25'60\"N, 68°31'60\"E) during Kharif 2013. The experiment was laid out in a three replicated randomized complete block design (RCBD) factorial, having net plot size 3 × 3 m (9 m2). The treatments comprised three planting geometry (30 × 20 cm, 45 × 15 cm and 60 × 10 cm) and three irrigation regimes (2 irrigations at 20 and 40 DAS, 3 irrigations at 20, 40 and 60 DAS and 4 irrigations at 20, 40, 60 and 80 DAS). The analysis of variance showed that all the planting geometry and irrigation regimes significantly (P < 0.05) affected growth and yield of sesame. Planting geometry of 45 × 15 cm resulted in maximum branches plant-1 (15.67), capsules plant-1 (38.00), seeds capsule-1 (51.44), seed weight plant-1 (31.89 g), seed index (2.83 g), biological yield (2301.23 kg·ha-1), seed yield (742.33 kg·ha-1) and harvest index (30.44%), followed by planting geometry of 60 × 10 cm in all the parameters. However, minimum growth and yield traits of sesame were recorded under planting geometry of 30 × 20 cm. Moreover, plant height was maximum (99.89 cm) under planting geometry of 30 × 20 cm. Among irrigation regimes, four irrigations (20, 40, 60 and 80 DAS) recorded maximum plant height (103.33 cm), branches plant-1 (16.44), capsules plant-1 (41.22), seeds capsule-1 (54.56), seed weight plant-1 (33.22 g), seed index (2.92 g), biological yield (2321.21 kg·ha-1), seed yield (748.78 kg·ha

Abstract: The project was aimed to study the micronutrients status of some important sites of Kowga, district Buner. Soil samples were collected at a depth of 0 – 30 cm from 16 sites of Kowga district Buner and analyzed for AB-DTPA extractable Zn, Fe, Cu andMn. The concentration of AB-DTPA extractable Zn, Fe, Cu and Mn ranged from 0.42 – 0.95, 0.57 – 4.02, 2.42 – 3.99 and 4.66 – 9.98mg kg-1 with an average of 0.61, 2.87, 3.16 and 6.81mg kg-1 respectively. 90 % samples were deficient in Zn while 10 % medium. 50 % samples were found deficient, 30 % medium and only 20% found adequate in Fe concentration. Mn and Cu concentration was found 100 % in soils, which showed that adequate levels of micronutrients in soils are important for optimum crop yield. Soil pH ranged from 7.97 – 8.35 with an average value of 8.2. All the soil samples had pH value above 8 except one which was 7.97. It showed that majority of the sites were alkaline in nature which shows that. Soil electrical conductivity (EC) ranged from 0.30 – 0.43dS m-1 which showed that soils were non saline, normal. Soil organic matter (SOM) ranged from 0.15 to 2.12% with an average value of 0.95 %. Lime content (CaCo3) ranged from 7. 43 to 17.5 % with an average value of 11.94 %. According to criteria set by Rashid and Ahmad (1998), 15 samples were found deficient, while only one sample was in medium range. Fe; 10 soil samples collected were found low, 5 samples were in medium and 1 sample was in adequate iron concentration. The AB-DTPA extractable copper was found high in all the sites. The AB-DTPA extractable manganese was found high in all the sites.

Pure and Applied Biology , 2013, DOI: nil
Abstract: The experiment was conducted on the "Effect of planting time on the cuttings of different "Quisqualis indica" at Ornamental Nursery, Department of Horticulture, The University of Agriculture, Peshawar, during 2009. It was observed that the planting time had significant effect on all the parameters studied. Similarly, cuttings also showed significant effect on all the parameters with the exception of number of cutting sprouted. Maximum days to sprouting (34 days) were recorded for hard wood and (31 days) for semi hard wood and (20 days) for soft wood cuttings in plastic tunnel. Maximum sprouting percentage (60 %) was recorded for hard wood, 22.22 % for semi hard wood and 13.50 % for soft wood cuttings. Numbers of leaves per sprout i.e. 10.30, 6.66 and 11.60 were recorded respectively for hard wood, Semi hard wood and soft wood cuttings. Number of roots per cutting 8.0, 15.0 and 35.60 were recorded for hard wood, semi hard wood and soft wood cuttings, and the survival percentage 13 %, 46 % and 22 % respectively for hard wood, semi hard wood and soft wood cuttings. Root weight 0.2 g, 0.5g and 1.0 g were recorded respectively for hard wood, semi hard wood and soft wood cuttings
Effect of integrated use of biochar, FYM and nitrogen fertilizer on soil organic fertility
Naseem Khan,Zahir Shah,Nazeer Ahmed,Saeed Ahmad
Pure and Applied Biology , 2013, DOI: nil
Abstract: The study was conducted to determine the interactive effects of biochar application in combination with farm yard manure (FYM) and nitrogen (N) fertilizer on soil organic matter (SOM) and mineral nitrogen at Agricultural Research Farm of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Agricultural University Peshawar in 2010-2011. Soil samples at 0-15 cm depth were collected from maize and mungbean plots at harvest stage (May, 2011). Both maize and mungbean crops received biochar alone and in combination with FYM before sowing (November, 2010). The soil samples were analyzed for soil organic matter and mineral N. The results showed that the effect of fertilizer N and FYM on accumulation of soil organic matter (SOM) was generally inconsistent. However, the biochar exerted considerable influence on the accumulation of SOM. The residual SOM content after crop harvest were maximum in treatments receiving the highest level of biochar. The values for SOM increased with increasing level of biochar. The soil mineral nitrogen was generally greater in treatments receiving fertilizer N at 30 kg than at 15 kg ha -1. However, the effect of biochar and FYM on soil mineral N was inconsistent as differences in soil mineral N between the nil and maximum biochar treatments were not remarkable. These results suggested that biochar application resulted in the accumulation of SOM. However, biochar and FYM had no considerable influence on accumulation of soil mineral N whereas fertilizer N resulted in the accumulation of mineral N in soil to some extent.

Journal of Biological Sciences , 2001,
Abstract: Contribution of different factors responsible for the increase of Maize production viz: weeds control, insect/pest control and fertilizer were determined in Kharif, 1996 and 1 997 under the agro-climatic conditions of Dera Ismail Khan, Pakistan. The investigations measured the average maximum yield gap between the improved practices and that of farmer`s practices as 2443 kg/ha, showing an increase of 193.88 % over that of farmer`s practices. The highest share contributed by improved fertilizer dose, was 38.48 %; followed by insect/pest control, that was 26 %. The lowest share was contributed by weeds control, 22 %. The highest net return and Value Cost Ratio (VCR) of Rs. 3974.65 and (1:2.2) respectively, were found for fertilizer. The minimum net return of Rs. 1 576.20 with VCR (1:1.47) was obtained for insect/pest control.

Iranian Journal of Reproductive Medicine , 2011,
Abstract: Background: Recent studies have shown that benzene extract of Ocimum sanctum (O. sanctum) leaves induces the ultrastructural changes in the epithelial cells of the cauda epididymis, its subsequent recovery in the seminiferous epithelium and fertility of male albino rats.Objective: Our aim was to investigate the effect of benzene extract of O.sanctum leaves on the cauda epididymal sperm parameters, morphology and their organelles at the ultrastructural level in albino rats. Materials and Methods: Wistar male rats (n=20) were allocated into two groups of control (n=10) and test group (n=10). The test group received benzene extract of O.sanctum leaves (250mg/kg/day) for 48 consequence days. Five animals from each group were used for fertility test. Twenty-four hours after the last dose, the rest of the control (n=5) and treated (n=5) animals were sacrificed by cervical dislocation and then the cauda epididymal plasma was used for sperm analysis, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopic (TEM) studies. Results: Sperm analysis of test group exhibited significant (p≤0.001) decrease in the sperm count, motility, speed and increase in sperm anomalies when compare to control group. SEM and TEM observation in treated animals indicated the morphological changes in plasma membrane as well as in the acrosomal membrane of spermatozoa, formation of a balloon-like cytoplasmic droplet in the mid-region of abnormal tail and disorganization or degeneration of mitochondria of sperm mitochondrial sheaths. Conclusion: The effects observed in this study may have resulted from a general alteration in the cauda epididymal milieu, probably due to androgen deficiency consequent to the anti-androgenic property of O.sanctum leaves
