The Modeling by Fuzzy Least Squares Regression Approach Relationships between Copper Values in the Soil, Vegetables, Fruits and Human Tissue

Derviş Topuz and Kenan Kiliç

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 06, 2021

The aim of this study is to determine whether the potential toxic copper element values measured in soils (X1), vegetables (X2) and waters (X3) have an effect on the copper elements in the stomach and intestinal tissue (Yi) (ppm) of individuals in an area of approximately 2400 km2 covering the east of Erciyes strato volcano. We applied Diamond’s fuzzy least squares (FLS) method, which assumes that the deviation between the observed and the predicted values is due to the fuzziness of the coeffi...

Human heart is a strong muscle that pumps blood to the body. A normal, healthy adult heart is about the size of human clenched fist and it is like an engine that makes a car works, moves and functions properly as such, the heart keeps the body running. A healthy heart supplies the body with just the right amount of blood at the right rate for whatever the body is doing at that time. The flow of blood to the heart could be reduced by plaque build-up or blockage by a plaque suddenly ruptures, thes...

Article Type: Meta-Analysis | First Published: August 16, 2021

Rilpivirine (RPV) is a second-generation non-nucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitor used in combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) in naive and experienced HIV-positive adult subjects. To evaluate its efficacy and safety in these patient settings, we performed a metaanalysis of randomized controlled trials with available data at 48 and 96 weeks of follow-up. We considered 4 studies involving 2336 cART-naïve patients and 8 studies involving 3165 cART-experienced virologically controlled p...

COVID-19 virus has spread everywhere in Africa and to the 36 states of Nigeria, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja. The outbreak of COVID-19 in Lagos, since February 27, 2020 has generated 158,506 confirmed cases, including 1,969 deaths, as of 8 March 2021. In most cases, community transmission is the prime factor in which the viruses are fast spreading. Fortunately, there has never been a reported incidence of COVID-19 infection on any of the Nigerian university campuses. We a...
