Conference Paper
Despite some controversies, it is generally suggested that obesity imparts a higher risk of breast cancer, the most common cancer among women all over the world. Since obese people usually have higher serum levels of leptin, a hormone secreted by white adipose tissue, the hormone is suspected as the link between adiposity and breast cancer. In this...
Article
Leptin (LEP) and leptin receptor (LEPR) have long been found associated with breast cancer. So far no high-resolution method such as electron microscopy has been used to investigate the subcellular localization of leptin and leptin receptor in breast cancer. We collected cancer and non-cancer breast tissues from 51 cases of invasive ductal breast c...
Article
Introduction: The goal of palliative care is the provision of the best quality of life (QOL) for terminally ill and dying patients. Advances in medical treatment has seen an increase in overall survival of all stages of malignant diseases. This includes advanced and/or inoperable malignancies where management is mainly palliative involving differen...

In this paper, we propose Balanced Energy-Efficient Network Integrated Super Heterogeneous (BEENISH), improved BEENISH (iBEENISH), Mobile BEENISH (MBEENISH), and improved Mobile BEENISH (iMBEENISH) protocols for heterogeneous wireless sensor networks (WSNs). BEENISH considers four energy levels of nodes and selects cluster heads (CHs) on the base o...
Article
This review focuses on the problem of obesity from an Asian perspective and the current evidence that supports the benefits of bariatric surgery over conventional treatment for sustained weight loss. The requirements for an effective bariatric surgical service are highlighted. Principles of peri-operative management and the currently practiced oper...
Conference Paper
Depth-based routing protocols play a key role in assuming realistic approach by considering the continuous node movement in aqueous environment. The performance attributes of depth-based routing protocols highly depend upon the depth information of sensor nodes. Although this information is not prioritized by all acoustic models to estimate channel...

In this paper, a novel framework is presented through link and path duration for link availability of paths. Further, we evaluate and analyze our work by varying the number of nodes, pause time and speed in VANETs. We select three routing protocols namely Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Fish-eye State Routi...

In this paper, we propose Regional Energy Efficient Cluster Heads based on Maximum Energy (REECH-ME) Routing Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The main purpose of this protocol is to improve the network lifetime and particularly the stability period of the network. In REECH-ME, the node with the maximum energy in a region becomes Cluste...
Thesis
Full-text available
Wireless distributed sensor network consists of randomly deployed wireless sensors having low energy assets. These networks can be used for monitoring a variety of environments. Major problem of these networks is energy constraint and lifetime, so, to overcome these problems different routing protocols and clustering techniques have been introduced...
Article
One of the major challenges in Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) is to prolong the lifetime of network. Traditional research work focuses on minimizing transmit power; however, in the case of short range communication the consumption power in decoding is significantly larger than transmit power. This paper investigates the minimization of total p...
Article
Increased use of Wireless sensor Networks (WSNs) in variety of applications has enabled the designers to create autonomous sensors, which can be deployed randomly, without human supervision, for the purpose of sensing and communicating valuable data. Many energy-efficient routing protocols are designed for WSNs based on clustering structure. In thi...

Wireless distributed sensor network consists of randomly deployed sensors having low energy assets. These networks can be used for monitoring a variety of environments. Major problems of these networks are energy constraints and their finite lifetimes. To overcome these problems different routing protocols and clustering techniques are introduced....

Breast cancer is one of the commonest cancers in Malaysian females. Searching for a molecular link between breast cancer, early onset gene 1 (BRCA1) mutations and the development of early onset breast cancer has been of major interest over the past two decades. BRCA1 gene is located on chromosome 17 and known as a tumour suppressor gene maintaining...

Background: The adaptive power of Staphylococcus aureus to antibiotics lead to the emergence of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) in the early 1960s. The cause of resistance to methicillin is the acquisition of the mecA gene, situated on a mobile genetic element called the staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec). Methods: One of the mo...

To study the presence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) virulence factors and clinical outcome in H. pylori infected patients. A prospective analysis of ninety nine H. pylori-positive patients who underwent endoscopy in our Endoscopy suite were included in this study. DNA was isolated from antral biopsy samples and the presence of cagA, iceA, and...

Clinical features, diagnosis and management of Plummer-Vinson Syndrome
Article
A 37-year-old Malay lady from the state of Pahang was admitted to the surgical unit with colicky upper right quadrant abdominal pain radiating to the right shoulder and scapula region. This was accompanied by nausea and vomiting. She needed intramuscular analgesics for the pain. There was no past history of similar episodes. Clinically, she was not...
