Article
Full-text available
Reactive dyes are widely utilized in the textile industry due to their advantageous properties of vivid color, water-fastness, and simple application procedures with minimal energy usage. The toxicity of most azo dyes is a significant environmental concern, as effluents from dye processing and manufacturing sectors are known to be carcinogenic and...

Despite the association of prevalent health conditions with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) severity, the disease-modifying biomolecules and their pathogenetic mechanisms remain unclear. This study aimed to understand the inf luences of COVID-19 on different comorbidities and vice versa through network-based gene expression analyses. Using the...
Article
Full-text available
Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is a multidrug-resistant bacterium with no precise clinical treatment. This bacterium can be a vital cause for death and different organ failures in immune-compromised, immune-competent, and long-time hospitalized patients. Extensive quorum sensing capability has become a challenge to develop new drugs against this path...
Article
Full-text available
Quorum sensing (QS) enables virulence factors in bacteria for biofilm formation and pathogenic invasion. Therefore, quorum quenching (QQ), disruption of QS circuit, becomes an alternative antimicrobial therapy. In this study, leaf extract of Gynura procumbens (GP) was used to inhibit biofilm and virulent factors in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The extra...
Article
Hantaviruses are an emerging zoonotic group of rodent-borne viruses that are having serious implications on global public health due to the increase in outbreaks. Since there is no permanent cure, there is increasing interest in developing a vaccine against the hantavirus. This research aimed to design a robust cross-protective subunit vaccine usin...
Article

Oyster mushroom is the second runner-up among commercially produced mushrooms due to its delicious taste, higher nutritional and medicinal properties. The objectives of this study were to determine the nutritional variation through the analysis of obtained nutritional values and to assess the genetic diversity through RAPD marker of five different...
Article
The sole objective of this research is to devise an epitope-based vaccine candidate as prophylaxis for the Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) using the knowledge of immunoinformatics and structural biology. Importantly, CCHFV outbreaks have increased in several countries resulting in increased mortality up to 40% due to the lack of prosp...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The increasing number of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and the emergence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) strains make Acinetobacter baumannii a troublesome pathogen especially in a hospital environment. This study aimed to isolate A. baumannii from the hospital environment of a local tertiary care hospital and study the prevalence of MDR patt...
Presentation
Full-text available
It is about the isolation and detection of Acinetobacter baumannii from environmental samples of a tertiary care hospital as well as identification of multi-drug resistant properties of Acinetobacter baumannii. Furthermore, defining the current status of Acinetobacter baumannii in Bangladesh.
Article
Full-text available
Lassa virus (LASV) is responsible for a type of acute viral haemorrhagic fever referred to as Lassa fever. Lack of adequate treatment and preventive measures against LASV resulted in a high mortality rate in its endemic regions. In this study, a multi-epitope vaccine was designed using immunoinformatics as a prophylactic agent against the virus. Fo...

Conference Paper
Acinetobacter baumannii is an opportunistic, hospital dwelling pathogen which is responsible for hospital-acquired infections like Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), several respiratory and urinary tract infections, meningitis, wound sepsis and numerous skin/soft tissue infections (SSTIs). The emergence of this notorious bacteria is profoundly...
Article
Full-text available
Bacteria are the most common aetiological agents of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) and use a variety of mechanisms to evade the host immune system. With the emerging antibiotic resistance, CAP-causing bacteria have now become resistant to most antibiotics. Consequently, significant morbimortality is attributed to CAP despite their varying rates...

The most discussed topic in today's world is COVID-19, an acute respiratory disease caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) because of its contagious transmission pattern, and morbimortality. The virus was originated by bats and in December 2019, first spread to humans by unknown intermediate species in Wuhan, Chi...

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an emerging opportunistic pathogen responsible for cystic fibrosis and nosocomial infections. In addition, empirical treatments are become inefficient due to their multiple-antibiotic resistance and extensive colonizing ability. Quorum sensing (QS) plays a vital role in the regulation of virulence factors in P. aeruginosa....

Elizabethkingia anophelis is an emerging human pathogen causing neonatal meningitis, catheter-associated infections and nosocomial outbreaks with high mortality rates. Besides, they are resistant to most antibiotics used in empirical therapy. In this study, therefore, we used immunoinformatic approaches to design a prophylactic peptide vaccine agai...

Hantaviruses are a newly zoonotic emerging group of rodent-borne viruses that have a significant impact on global public health by increasing amplitude and magnitude of outbreaks. As no permanent cure yet, it is now growing and challenging interest to develop a vaccine against Hantavirus. This study endeavored to design a robust subunit vaccine usi...
Poster
Full-text available
The main purpose of our study is to suggest a multi-epitope vaccine against Lassa virus which can prevent Lassa fever among West African regions. We displayed the poster in National Biotechnology Fair-2019, held in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Novo Theatre, Dhaka, Bangladesh to confront the 3MT (3 Minute Thesis) presentation competition.

Question
Recently, many countries along with Bangladesh, producing Remidesivir in mass scale and using in COVID-19 treatment. But best of my knowledge, the remedy has some contradictions when it comes to older patients with critical heart condition and comorbidities.
Question
It has been already 1.5 months from the first appeared case in Bangladesh. Since then 182 cases died from 11k confirmed cases. BD has temperate weather, and the same scenario is also seen in other temperate countries compared to other countries with frosty weather where the death rate after 1.5 months was devastating. Does the weather have any effect on COVID-19 emergence?
Question
In this ongoing 'novel' Coronavirus pandemic, diagnosis tools have great shortage I heard. Which knocked my mind to know more about the tools.
Question
I'm facing this issue in my project and not getting any solution.
Question
Though i found two or three, but need a selective media without any supplement.
