  • Comparison of Hydrus-1D to Thermal Dispersion Model for Water-heat
           Transport in a Semi-arid Region of Tunisia

    • Abstract: Background and Objectives: In most studies of simulating water and solute transport in the unsaturated soils, soil temperature is considered constant and the temperature of the water that infiltrates the soil is neglected. In main objective of this study was to examine the comparison between a classical soil physics model (Hydrus-1D) and a thermal dispersion model was done, which takes into account the temperature of the water in soil, is carried out in a semi-arid region of Tunisia. Materials and Methods: Monitoring of soil water content and soil temperature was conducted during a typical agricultural season. Two models were used; a thermal dispersion model and the Hydrus-1D model for the simulation of the variation of the water content and the temperature in the topsoil at 30 cm in depth. Results: The simulated values were close to the measured one. Thus, the modeling results are quite satisfactory for both models. However, the thermo-dispersive model has shown better results since it takes into account the temperature of the water infiltrating in the soil. Conclusion: Both models can be powerful tools for water management in field conditions.

  • Chemical Composition of Six Grass Species (Poaceae sp.) from Protected
           Forest Range in Northern Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Background and Objectives: The forage grasses shows considerable variations in yield, morphological characteristics and feeding value at grazed, ungrazed and different ecological conditions. For this reason, these characters of the same species should be known under different ecological conditions. The aim of the present investigation was to determine the some forage quality traits six dominant cool-season forage grasses grown as naturally in the protected forest range at northern Bulgaria ecological conditions. Materials and Methods: Samples were collected (approximately 450 g biomass) for two years at full bloom stage, which were chosen not damaged by biotic and abiotic factors. Whole plant samples were sterilized with 2% sodium hypochlorite for 15 min and washed distilled water three times. Potassium (%), phosphorus (%), calcium (%), magnesium (%), crude protein (%), acid detergent fiber (%) and neutral detergent fiber (%) were determined in these dried (at 55̊C for 48 h) samples. The crude protein content dry matter (%) was determined by the micro-Kjeldahl method. All samples were analyzed in triplicate. Results: The highest crude protein (14.23%), calcium (3.88%), potassium (3.22%) ratios were determined in smooth brome, whereas the lowest phosphorus ratio (0.22%) was found in same plant. Sheep fescue produced more ADF (33.78%) and NDF (62.10%) ratios than other species. The magnesium ratio ranged from 0.26-0.28%. The mineral contents of those are generally adequate to meet the needs of livestock. Conclusion: Therefore, sheep fescue, red fescue, perennial ryegrass, Kentucky bluegrass, orchardgrass and smooth brome can be grazed to obtain mineral, fiber and crude protein contents in similar ecological conditions of the world.

  • Protective Role of Neuronal PAS Domain Protein 3 NPAS3 Gene in the
           Survival of Human Brain Stem Cell

    • Abstract: Background and Objective: Neuronal PAS domain protein 3 (NPAS3) is one of the basic helix-loop-helix (Bhlh) transcription factor superfamily members. It is mainly expressed in human brain. Its disruption can result in the occurrence of many diseases, such as schizophrenia. However, the function of NPAS3 is still unknown in human brain stem cell. In this study, the role of NPAS3 was evaluated in cell viability, proliferation, apoptosis, cell cycle regulation and cell differentiation. Materials and Methods: Using trypan blue, methylene blue, MTS and BrdU methods, the experiments of cell viability and cell proliferation were performed respectively. Using SubG1 and Annexin V/Propidium iodide FAC analysis, cell apoptosis and cell cycle were investigated. Eventually, using immunofluorescent cytochemistry, cell differentiation was evaluated. Results: It was shown that a lack of NPAS3 expression significantly decreased the viability and the proliferation and induced more cells to undergo apoptosis, compared to the control cell line. Furthermore, a knockdown of NPAS3 expression induced a decrease of cells in the S phase of cell cycle. Finally, it was discovered that the capacity of cell differentiation was declined in a lack of NPAS3 expression, when compared to the control cell line. Conclusion: With the current findings, it is concluded that human brain stem cell is sensitive to the level of NPAS3 expression and hence only an optimal level is mandatory to mediate normal cellular process.

  • Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Use among Psychiatric
           Patients in Northwest Nigeria

    • Abstract: Background and Objective: There has been a reported increase in the use of complementary and alternative medicine among patients generally, a potential risk of non-compliance and interaction which may affect outcome when concomitantly used with orthodox medicine. Mental disorders are highly prevalent in both the developed and the developing world with hundreds of millions of people suffering from psychiatric morbidity. The objective of this study was to describe the prevalence and determinants of complementary and alternative medicines (CAM) use among psychiatric patients. Materials and Methods: The study was a descriptive cross-sectional study carried out among psychiatric outpatients in two tertiary hospitals in Sokoto state north-western Nigeria (the Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital (UDUTH) Sokoto and Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital (FNPH) Kware), between February and May 2014. An interviewer-administered structured questionnaire was used to collect the data on socio-demographic, clinical and CAM use variables. Data was extracted and analysis was done using the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) version 18.0. Results: A lifetime CAM use and for psychiatric disorders of 64.8 and 53.8% with only about a third current users and majority of the respondents found to have used herbal drinks and prayers in UDUTH and FNPH, respectively. Although a small proportion of the respondents preferred CAM to orthodox medications in both hospitals, however about one third of the respondents spent only 1,000 Nigerian Naira on CAM in UDUTH and FNPH. Majority of the study population in both hospitals were within the age bracket of 21-40 years. Age, gender, duration of onset of illness and cost were some of the socio-demographic determinants that influence the use of CAM in this study. Conclusion: In this study, prevalence of CAM use was high among psychiatric patients. Age, gender, disease duration and cost are part of the determinants of CAM use.
