Cloud based Convergent Unrestricted Mobile Communication Assistance via Evolutionary Adaptive Ad hoc Strategies for Disaster Relief

International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology (IJEAT)


The mobile communication networks and towers go down or cease to exist leading to poor connectivity during disasters. When communication becomes paralyzed, it is vital to build a disaster relief solution with available resources. Without data connectivity, it is essential that an emergency protocol should be implemented by the government that uses the available paralyzed communication resources spread across various communication networks by pooling to form one single communication network backed by cloud facilities to restore connectivity. In this paper the authors introduce a new emergency protocol approach to design an unrestricted cloud-based mobile technology during disaster enabling instant communication services to the disaster zones that works best under the command of the government. This protocol can act faster than the existing communication network put in place for public communication, with the additional advantage of being more robust and capable of withstanding disaster conditions.

Is There Any Effect Of Addictions In Arsenic Induced Oral Carcinoma?

International Journal of Advancement in Life Sciences Research, Vol. 2, no. 2, Apr. 2019, pp. 36-42, http://www.ijalsr.org/index.php/journal/article/view/51.

International Journal of Advancement in Life Sciences


Background- The association of various addictions with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) has been well established. But it’s any possible link with metal toxicity has not been studied in the context of this carcinoma.

Aim- To correlate the variation in the effect of various addictions with arsenic toxicity in the development of OSCC in the study population.

Settings and design- It is a case-control study. Ethical clearance was obtained from the institutional committee. A total of 104 oral malignant, 103 premalignant and 200 age and sex matched healthy individuals were selected for the study. The history of addictions of case and controls was collected from questionnaire.

Methods and material- On proper consent of cases & controls, the hair samples were collected for arsenic estimation by flow injection hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry and the peripheral venous blood samples were processed for human leukocyte culture followed by Giemsa staining for the detection of chromosomal abnormality.

Statistical analysis used- Student t test, logistic regression by R software and correlation analysis by Graph Pad software.

Results- Significant correlation was observed between arsenic toxicity & OSCC (p value = 2.18e-06 ***). Smoking tobacco (r value 0.5365) was more significant over chewing tobacco (r value 0.4804). 3% of malignant cases showed chromosomal break.

Conclusion- Statistically significant correlation among arsenic, addictions & OSCC in this study may indicate an associative role between the two factors. However, the study could not define any correlation with cytogenetic damage.

Hepatitis C and iron over load

Sandeep Poddar

Malaysian Journal of Medical Research 1(1), 25-30. 2017.

Malaysian Journal of Medical Research

Hepatitis C is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis C virus: the virus can cause both acute and chronic hepatitis infection. Patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection appear to have an excellent chance of responding to 6 months of standard therapy with interferon (IFN) and frequently develop systemic iron overload, which exacerbates morbidity. The iron excess in hepatitis C may be due to hereditary hemochromatosis, hematologic diseases, multiple transfusions, porphyria cutanea tarda and chronic alcohol abuse. Different mechanisms proposed to explain the relation between HCV infection and hepatic iron overload. Some revealed that hepatic iron accumulation results from release of iron from damaged liver cells. Consumption of coffee, tea also reduces iron absorption and thereby decrease iron overload in Liver and thereby reduces the oxidative stress of iron overload in liver. The global scenario of this problem has been discussed in the article.

Exploring the role of stem cells in cancer therapy

Malaysian Journal of Nursing 2011Jan: 2(3):16

Malaysian Journal of Nursing

The conventional methods for cancer treatment used so far are radiotherapy and chemotherapy. But, the drawbacks of these procedures are that most chemotherapy drugs and radiation techniques target the normally growing healthy cells of the body. They target the normal tissue as well, while being unable to completely destroy the cancer stem cells which are highly resistant to these technique. Solid tumors such as breast cancer and colon cancer possess a minor population of tumorigenic cells termed cancer stem cells (CSCs) or tumor initiating cells (TICs). A recent approach to deal with these problems is by making use stem cells. Stem cells are generally defined by an ability to differentiate into multi- ple cell lineages and self-renew. These stem cells have a number of utilities. They contribute to not only organogenesis but also help in regeneration in response to the injury of tissues and organs. Several studies conducted in the biology of stem cells have allowed for their identification and characterization in a variety of tissues and organs. This review makes an attempt to explore the behaviour and potential of stem cells in cancer treatment alongside the traditional methods of chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgical removal of tumour.

GST & CYP Polymorphism Related to Tea Drinking and Oral Pathology

International Journal of Human Genetics 8(3):295-299

Abstract and figures
Individual cancer susceptibility is the result of several host factors, including differences in life-style habits and genetic susceptibility. There is a correlation between CYP1A1 polymorphism (Msp I) and oral cancer susceptibility. Individuals carrying the deletions of GSTM1 and GSTT1 are at high risk of developing oral cancers. Again an increased risk of oral carcinoma is indicated by an increased micronuclei frequency. In the present study on tribal and non-tribal population of Assam, CYPm2m2 genotypes were found in about 14.05% cases having leukoplakia and other oral problems. In the same cases GSST null genotypes were found to be 24.35%. In comparison to the controls the micronuclei frequencies were found to be one fold increased for the cases. In spite of having heavy exposure to the carcinogens due to tobacco chewing and bidi smoking, regular tea drinking is decreasing the risk of developing cancer to very little extent.
