Quantum Cosmology Explains the General Galaxy-Black Hole Correlation  [PDF]
Paul K. Suh
International Journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics (IJAA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ijaa.2012.22014
Abstract: The symmetric quantum physics of the Universe demonstrates that the massive black holes developing in the post-inflation big-bang prompt the formation of the host galaxies around them. A general correlation between the variety of galaxies and black holes develops, a specific example of which is the celebrated (but not understood) mass correlation between the host elliptical galaxies and their core black holes. The elucidations and predictions in this exposition are inclusive and far-reaching, resolving a myriad of yet unsolved problems and quandaries in the evolving Universe, among which are: how the general galaxy-black hole correlations are established; what is the role of the dark matter and energy in the formation of galaxies and stars; how the spiral galaxies with less predominant black holes are formed; how the early star forming globular cluster emerged with sparse dark matter; why some galaxy mergers give rise to the starbursts, while other mergers switch the star flourishing galaxies off into grave yards; and how could the Universe have wound up as sheets and filaments of galaxy clusters encompassing great voids.
Unified Theory of Everything and QQD  [PDF]
Paul Kiu S. Suh
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1102000
Abstract: The fully Unified Theory of {Strong, EM, Weak, Gravity} interactions all arising from the unique source of electronic charges has been established. The theory proves that the Nature is astutely simple in essence, and the most of the recently promoted circuitous physics seem to be incorrect in the new light. In the proposed theory, the 100% of matter and energy content of the Universe, including the dark matter and energy, is predicted in terms of a single integer parameter L in one-to-one agreement with the observation. To boot, the {Z, W} bosons are proven to be compound states with their innate heavy masses; they never have been zero-mass particles, and the Higgs boson is uncalled for. The unified theory also has explicated the ever mysterious strong interaction number “137”, and leads to QQD (Quantum Quark Dynamics) parallel to the QED. The QQD gives, for example, very simple explanation of “Asymptotic Freedom” without requiring the unwarranted and arduously complex QCD.
Reversal of Severe Volume Deplete Acute Kidney Injury by Rasburicase  [PDF]
Edward P. Nord, Deep Patel, Heesuck Suh, Nand K. Wadhwa
Open Journal of Nephrology (OJNeph) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojneph.2012.24014
Abstract: We report on a case of acute kidney injury in a patient with severe volume depletion from high ileostomy output and poor oral intake associated with hyperuricemia and hyperkalemia. The patient presented with similar features on three separate admissions. A conservative management approach was undertaken that included infusion of rasburicase, since the patient refused to undergo hemodialysis on each occasion. Rasburicase is a recombinant urate oxidase enzyme that converts uric acid to allantoin which is five to ten times more soluble than uric acid in urine, thereby enhancing urinary excretion. Rasburicase was administered each time and was followed by a prompt increase in urine output, rapid decrease in serum uric acid level, and recovery of renal function without the need for acute renal replacement therapy. We believe that rasburicase, with a molecular weight of 34 kDa, crossed the glomerular filtration barrier and entered the tubular fluid where it dissolved intra-tubular uric acid, thus relieving obstruction, thereby rapidly enhancing urine excretion and improving renal function. Based on this experience, we propose that rasburicase offers an alternative treatment for acute kidney injury in similar types of settings. To the best of our knowledge this is the first reported case in this situation.
Clinical Presentations of Pediatric Horner Syndrome  [PDF]
Frankie K. Smith, Geetanjali Rathore, Donny W. Suh
Open Journal of Ophthalmology (OJOph) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojoph.2017.71006
Abstract: Purpose: To understand the multiple signs of Horner syndrome and to recommend protocols for pediatricians to obtain an accurate diagnosis of Horner syndrome. Methods: The medical records of 17 pediatric patients with Horner syndrome, neonates to eighteen years of age, were collected and analyzed. Data recorded included age, presenting symptoms, other medical history, allergies, medications, pupil size, presence of anhidrosis, and presence of ptosis. From the available pupil sizes, average degree of anisocoria was calculated. Results: All 17 patients had other clinical findings of Horner syndrome in addition to anisocoria. On initial evaluation, 100% had ptosis and 25% had anhidrosis. Of the available pupil size data, the average level of anisocoria was 2.06 mm, with a standard deviation of 1.17 mm. Conclusion: Physicians are reminded to measure pupil size to determine the degree of anisocoria when present, as it may help distinguish benign conditions from underlying pathology. Educating pediatricians on measurement of anisocoria and additional signs of Horner syndrome will help with proper referral patterns.
Chemopreventive Activity of Vitamin E in Breast Cancer: A Focus on γ- and δ-Tocopherol
Amanda K. Smolarek,Nanjoo Suh
Nutrients , 2011, DOI: 10.3390/nu3110962
Abstract: Vitamin E consists of eight different variants: α-, β-, γ-, and δ-tocopherols (saturated phytyl tail) and α-, β-, γ-, and δ-tocotrienols (unsaturated phytyl tail). Cancer prevention studies with vitamin E have primarily utilized the variant α-tocopherol. To no avail, a majority of these studies focused on variant α-tocopherol with inconsistent results. However, γ-tocopherol, and more recently δ-tocopherol, have shown greater ability to reduce inflammation, cell proliferation, and tumor burden. Recent results have shown that γ-enriched mixed tocopherols inhibit the development of mammary hyperplasia and tumorigenesis in animal models. In this review, we discuss the possible differences between the variant forms, molecular targets, and cancer-preventive effects of tocopherols. We recommend that a γ-enriched mixture, γ- and δ-tocopherol, but not α-tocopherol, are promising agents for breast cancer prevention and warrant further investigation.
Geochemistry and Geochronology of Peraluminous High-K Granitic Leucosomes of Yaoundé Series (Cameroon): Evidence for a Unique Pan-African Magmatism and Melting Event in North Equatorial Fold Belt  [PDF]
Ngnotue Timoleon, Ganno Sylvestre, Nzenti Jean Paul, Schulz Bernhard, Tchaptchet Tchato Depesquidoux I, Suh Cheo Emmanuel
International Journal of Geosciences (IJG) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ijg.2012.33055
Abstract: Geochemical and geochronological studies have been carry out on the leucosomes of Yaoundé series with the aims to identify the magma sources and to indicate their production periods and emplacement within the formations of the Pan-African North-Equatorial Fold Belt (PANEFB) in Cameroon. The Yaoundé series belongs to the Southern domain of the PANEFB and it is composed of migmatites in which two types of granitic leucosomes (in situ leucosomes and injected leucosomes) have been distinguished. These rocks display characteristic of calc-alkaline (in situ leucosomes) and high-K calc-alkaline to shoshonitic series (injected leucosomes). All the rocks are peraluminous with in situ leucosomes conform to S-type and injected leucosomes conform to I- and S-type granitoids. Major and trace elements composition reveal that in situ leucosomes derived from the partial melting of the host metapelite whereas injected leucosomes derived from the melting of metagreywacke. These sources are similar to those of granitoids from central and northern domains of the PANEFB. Th-U-Pb dating by electron microprobe (EMP) and LA-ICP-MS U-Pb dating on zircon have been used to constraints the melting event and emplacement of leucosomes in Yaoundé series. Th-U-Pb monazite dating, undertaken in two samples of leucosomes, gives two groups of monazite ages. The older group gives an age of 658 Ma whereas the age of younger group is 592 Ma. U-Pb dating of zircons from the leucosomes reveals a Pan-African age ranging from 626 to 654 Ma whereas zircons from metapelitic host rock reveal the overprinting of an early Pan-African event 911 - 1127 Ma on Palaeoproterozoic (2127 Ma) inheritance. These data clearly indicate that the host rocks of leucosomes of Yaoundé series have been firstly metamorphosed during Tonien-Stenien period (911 - 1127 Ma) and reveal the existence of extended unique melting event (592 and 658 Ma) in the Yaoundé series which is contemporaneous with the magmatism responsible for the emplacement of granitoids in the other domains of the PANEFB.
Xanthogranulomatous Pyelonephritis Associated with Crohn’s Disease and Primary Hyperparathyroidism  [PDF]
Mekdess Abebe, Wing Mu, Heesuck Suh, Edward P. Nord, Nand K. Wadhwa
Open Journal of Nephrology (OJNeph) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojneph.2013.33021
Abstract:

We report on a case of unilateral and diffuse xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP) associated with Crohn’s disease and primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT). The patient had undiagnosed primary HPT for at least a year prior to presentation. The co-existence of Crohn’s disease and primary HPT caused calcium oxalate stone likely by the known mechanism of hypercalcemia and hyperoxaluria respectively. The patient developed XGP, a rare disease, as a result of infected calcium oxalate stone which was treated with antibiotics and unilateral nephrectomy. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of XGP associated with Crohn’s disease and primary HPT.

The Suh Muscle Hook: A New Muscle Hook for Tight Extraocular Muscles during Strabismus Surgery  [PDF]
Lin Luo, Linda A. Morgan, Donny W. Suh, Elise K. Morgan
Open Journal of Ophthalmology (OJOph) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojoph.2017.71008
Abstract: Purpose: To introduce an advanced muscle hook to decrease risks and create more feasible extraocular muscle surgeries for physicians. Case Report: Tight extraocular muscles during strabismus surgery could be extremely challenging even in experienced hands due to restricted globe rotation, limited view, and lack of muscle elasticity. Although a variety of surgical instruments have been introduced through the years, traditional muscle hooks such as the Jameson hook are largely unchanged and are bulky and cumbersome. Using the traditional muscle hook under situations such as pediatric strabismus surgery with smaller eyes and extraocular muscles may increase the risk of perforating the globe or even rupturing the muscles. We developed the “Suh muscle hook”, which has a 0.55 mm wide grooved track in a 1.1 mm wide horizontal bar, a semi-sharp dissecting tip, and a 30-degree bending near the handle accommodating for nasal bridge to better facilitate surgeons dealing with tight extraocular muscles and minimize risks during strabismus surgery.
SIMO Transadmittance Mode Active-C Universal Filter  [PDF]
Neeta Pandey, Sajal K. Paul
Circuits and Systems (CS) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/cs.2010.12009
Abstract: This paper presents two transadmittance mode universal filters having single voltage input and multiple current outputs. The filter employs three multiple output current controlled conveyors (MOCCCII) and two grounded capacitors. It can realize low pass, high pass, band pass, notch and all pass responses. As desired, the input voltage signal is inserted at high impedance input terminal and the output currents are obtained at high impedance output terminals and hence eases cascadability. The filter enjoys low sensitivity performance and low component spread; and exhibits electronic and orthogonal tunability of filter parameters via bias currents of MOCCCII. SPICE simulation results confirm the workability of the proposed structure.
Nickel uptake and intracellular localization in Cupriavidus pauculus KPS 201, native to ultramafic ecosystem  [PDF]
Arundhati Pal, A. K. Paul
Advances in Bioscience and Biotechnology (ABB) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/abb.2010.14036
Abstract: The nickel-resistant bacterium, Cupriavidus pauculus KPS 201 was isolated from the rhizosphere of Rinorea bengalensis (Wall.) O. K. endemic to metal-percolated ultramafic ecosystem of Andaman, India. This study investigates nature of Ni resistance, growth associated uptake and localization of Ni in cellular compartments of KPS 201. Growth kinetics of C. pauculus KPS 201 exhibited a typical inducible Ni resistance in Ni-supplemented (1.0-10.0 mM) Tris-minimal medium. The Ni-induced cells showed a high degree of Ni resistance and accumulated a maximum of 29.3 µM Ni/g protein after 48 h of growth in 5 mM Ni. The accumulated Ni was preferentially retained (90.6%) in the periplasm and was associated with the expression of two periplasmic proteins (74 and 66 kDa) under Ni-induced condition. Inducible nickel resistance in C. pauculus KPS 201 may possibly be due to extracytoplasmic binding and accumulation coupled with expression of specific periplasmic proteins. These findings will provide an insight in understanding metal-microbe interaction in geogenous environments and their exploitation in bioremediation of heavy metal pollutants.
