Article
The prevalence of obesity is increasing at an alarming rate and keeps on being one of the significant challenges of this century. Obesity promotes adipose tissue hypertrophy and causes the release of different pro-inflammatory cytokines, playing a significant role in the pathophysiology of metabolic syndrome. Aspirin is known as a potent anti-infla...

Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) has emerged as a valuable approach to forecast disease outbreaks in developed countries with a centralized sewage infrastructure. On the other hand, due to the absence of well-defined and systematic sewage networks, WBE is challenging to implement in developing countries like Bangladesh where most people live in...

SARS-CoV-2, a novel Corona virus strain, was first detected in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. As of December 16, 2021, almost 4,822,472 people had died and over 236,132,082 were infected with this lethal viral infection. It is believed that the human immune system is thought to play a critical role in the initial phase of infection when the viruse...
Article
Obesity is associated with low-grade chronic inflammation and has a remarkable role in the pathophysiology of metabolic complications. In triggering these inflammatory responses, the arachidonic acid (AA) cascade plays a key role. However, there is a lack of data on how supplementary AA would affect obesity, adipose tissue inflammation, and the AA...
Conference Paper
In this work, a cost-effective disinfection system for Coronavirus Disease of 2019 (COVID-19) is proposed to be used inside public transport. The disinfection system is twofold, firstly containing a tower unit where UV-C (Ultraviolet type-C) lamps are positioned in parallel, in such a way that, 360-degree space is covered, and secondly a power unit...

The current study provides information on Bacillus spp. contamination along with present status in commercially available poultry and animal feeds as well as animal-derived products in Bangladesh. The research has been conducted to determine if animal feed and its components are a source of Bacillus spp. contamination in feed and food chain. Out of...

1 Background: COVID-19 has become a global pandemic with a high growth rate of confirmed 2 cases. In Bangladesh, both mortality and affected rates are increasing at an alarming rate. 3 Therefore, more comprehensive studies of the epidemiological and clinical characteristics of 4 COVID-19 are required to control this pandemic. 5 Purpose: The present...
Conference Paper
In this study, a low-cost Ultraviolet disinfection system is proposed to be used inside ambulances for minimizing the cross-infection of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) during patient transfer. The disinfection system consists of a tower unit that contains the Ultraviolet type C (UVC) light fixture and a control box whe...
Article
In the course of a COVID-19 pandemic, 0.33 million people got infected in Bangladesh, we made the first and successful attempt to detect SARS-CoV-2 viruses' genetic material in the vicinity wastewaters of an isolation centre i.e. Shaheed Bhulu Stadium, situated at Noakhali. The idea was to understand the genetic loading variation, both temporal and...

The presence of SARS-CoV-2 genetic materials in wastewater has become a matter of grave for many countries of the world. Wastewater based epidemiology, in this context, emerged as an important tool in developed countries where proper sewage system is available. Due to the recent shift in the spread of the infection from urban to rural areas, it is...
Article
The receptor-binding domain (RBD) of SARS-CoV-2 spike (S) protein plays a vital role in binding and internalization through the alpha-helix (AH) of human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (hACE2). Thus, it is a potential target for designing and developing antiviral agents. Inhibition of RBD activity of the S protein may be achieved by blocking RBD i...

Purpose: The present study aimed to compare and analyze the sex-specific epidemiological, clinical characteristics, comorbidities, and other information of confirmed COVID-19 patients from the southeast region in Bangladesh for the first time. Methods: 385 lab-confirmed cases were studied out of a total of 2471 tested samples between June 5 and Sep...

Avian colibacillosis, caused by avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC), is one of the major infectious diseases of poultry that bring about great economic loss for the Bangladesh poultry industry. The present study aimed to determine the virulence genes of avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC) from cases of colibacillosis in poultry at the Noa...

Whole-genome sequencing is increasingly being used to investigate the spatial and temporal distribution of viral pathogens including the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus Variant 2 (SARS-CoV-2) which is responsible for the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In this study, we determined 55 complete genome sequences of SARS-CoV-2 strains isolated...

We made the first and successful attempt to detect SARS-CoV-2 genetic material in the vicinity wastewaters of an isolation centre i.e. Shaheed Bhulu Stadium, situated at Noakhali. Owing to the fact that isolation centre, in general, always contained a constant number of 200 COVID-19 patients, the prime objective of the study was to check if several...

Spike protein mediates the entry of SARS-CoV-2 into the human cells, and in this case, ACE2 acts as a cellular receptor. Therefore disruption of RBD-ACE2 interaction can be a practical solution Peptides may be the desirable solution to disrupt RBD-ACE2 interaction due to high selectivity and target specificity. Our study conducted virtual screening...
