Tuberculous lymphadenitis remains both diagnostic and therapeutic challenge because it mimics other pathologic processes. In this study, researchers tried to find the best way for diagnosis of tuberculous lymphadenitis in Red Sea State. About 222 patients suspected to have tuberculous lymphadenitis were examined in the period from March 2008 to October 2011 in a histopathology laboratory in the Red Sea Medical center, Port Sudan, Sudan. This is the only regional laboratory to which fine needle aspiration cytology and histopathological samples were sent. Slides were stained by Papanicolaou, May-Grunewald Giemsa (MGG) and Ziehl-Neelson stains. Cultures were also done from the aspirate. Serum samples were obtained for Immuno-Chromatography Test (ICT). In 57 patients biopsies were taken and stained by Haematoxylin and Eosin (H andE). Cervical lymph nodes were the common lymph node group affected by tuberculosis (94.5%). Studied females were more than males (M:F = 1:1.2). About 94.6% of the cytology show positive result for TB. The mycobacrium grow in 88% of the culture media. Acid fast bacilli were seen in 61 patients (41.6%). Serological test was positive in 68% of the patients. So in a short facility region like the study area, FNAC remain the best method for the diagnosis of tuberculous lymphadenitis. PCR and culture may be considered in few cases whenever highly needed. © Medwell Journals.

In this paper, we propose an energy efficient data forwarding protocol called Energy Aware Geographic Routing Protocol (EAGRP) for wireless sensor networks to extend the life time of the network. In EAGRP, both position information and energy are available at nodes used to route packets from sources to destination. The routing design of EAGRP is based on two parameters: location and energy levels of nodes. Each node knows the location and energy level of its neighbors. The performance measures have been analyzed with variable number of nodes. The simulations were carried out for different number of nodes. The proposed protocol was compared with Greedy Perimeter Stateless Routing (GPSR). Simulation results show that EAGRP performs competitively against the (GPSR) in terms of packet delivery ratio, throughput, energy consumption, and delay. Consequently, it can be concluded that EGARP does efficiently and effectively extend the network lifetime by increasing the successful data delivery rate. © 2013 IEEE.

Celiac disease is characterized by sensitivity to gluten that results in inflammation and atrophy of the small intestine mucosa. The aim of this research was to document the presence of celiac disease and to describe its clinical presentations in the tribes living in the Red Sea state of Sudan. 172 patients suspected to have celiac disease, were examined at the Red Sea Medical Center laboratory, Port Sudan, Sudan, from August 2008 to September 2011. All clinical data was collected using questionnaires. Serum samples were obtained from all patients for serological detection of anti-gliadin (AG) and anti-tissue transglutamase (ATTG) antibodies (IgG and IgA) using the enzyme-linked immuno-sorbent assay (ELISA). 128 patients were found to have celiac disease. The commonest presenting symptom was chronic diarrhea (20.3%) followed by weight loss (14%). Males and females were nearly equally affected. All age groups were affected with a peak incidence between 5 to 10 years. Celiac disease occurs in the Red Sea state and may well be under-diagnosed. The combination of IgA AGA and IgA ATTG tests represent a good diagnostic method to confirm celiac disease in suspected cases. Special attention needs to be given to methods that encourage adherence to gluten-free diet in affected people in this region.

Because of high pressure fluctuations in Combination Electronic Unit Pump (CEUP) system during fuel injection cycles, physical properties of diesel fuel including density, acoustic wave speed and bulk modulus also vary. These physical properties of fuel have significant importance in predicting the fuel injection behavior and its optimization. A 1D viscous damped mathematical model of wave equation has been developed in MATLAB not only to simulate the pressure fluctuations in fuel pipeline at various operating conditions of diesel engine but also to determine and analyze the variations in these physical properties of diesel fuel.

Background: Malaria is one of the world killers, but it is curable disease if patients have access to early diagnosis and prompt treatment. The aims of this study are to estimate the frequency of malaria cases among febrile patients, to evaluate the frequency of the parasite species, and to detect the best method for diagnosis of malaria in Red Sea State, Sudan. Materials and Methods: This study was carried out in laboratory of the Red Sea Medical center, Port Sudan, Sudan in period from July 2005 to May 2011. Blood samples were collected from 9,670 febrile patients suspected to have malaria and were examined by expert technologists under the supervision of senior pathologist. Another 717 blood samples seen in peripheral laboratories by routine microscopy were sent for confirmation by expert microscopy. Rapid diagnostic tests (RDT) were also done to these blood samples. Results: Out of the 9,670 febrile patients, only 283 had malaria by expert microscopy. The commonest plasmodium specie that causes malaria in the region was P. falciparum (50.2%), followed by P. vivax (43.8%). The specificity of routine microscopy was (52.7%) and that for RDT was (90.4%). The sensitivity of routine microscopy was (98.6%) while that for RDT was (99.8%). Conclusions: Small number of patients complaining of fever had malaria in Red Sea State with P. falciparum representing (50.2%), followed by P. vivax (43.8%). RDT is recommended for diagnosis of malaria in our region.
