Novel theories on magneto-electro-elastic ellipsoidal multi-inclusions and inhomogeneities and associated impotent fields
Publication date: Available online 9 October 2019Source: Mechanics of MaterialsAuthor(s): E. Rashidinejad, H.M. ShodjaAbstractThe exact nature of the induced coupled-fields of anisotropic magneto-electro-elastic ellipsoidal inclusions, multi-inclusions, and inhomogeneities with non-uniform eigenfields under polynomial magneto-electro-elastic far-field loadings is of particular interest. For the sake of prediction of the induced coupled-fields of magneto-electro-elastic multi-inclusions due to piecewise polynomial generalized eigenfields several theorems and corollaries are stated and proved. Some classes of impotent generalized eigenfields associated with encapsulated ellipsoidal multi-inclusion result in vanishing generalized disturbance strains within the innermost ellipsoidal domain. On the other hand, it is found that there are certain classes of impotent generalized eigenfields for which the generalized disturbance stresses vanish everywhere. Furthermore, it is proved that there exists a unique equivalent magneto-electro-elastic inclusion associated with an anisotropic magneto-electro-elastic ellipsoidal inhomogeneity subjected to polynomial far-field loadings. It is shown that associated with every anisotropic magneto-electro-elastic ellipsoidal inhomogeneity, there exists a set of infinite numbers of far-field loadings for which the inhomogeneity does not induce any disturbance generalized stresses anywhere within the entire medium. In other words, under certain far-fi...

Authors: Krassas GE, Markou KB Abstract The aim of this review is to provide relevant information regarding the impact of thyroid disease, starting from birth and mainly concerning hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, on reproduction. Hyperthyroidism occurs much less commonly in children than hypothyroidism, with Graves' disease (GD) being the most common cause of thyrotoxicosis in children. Children born with neonatal GD have no defects in the reproductive system that could be related to hyperthyroidism. Current treatment options include antithyroid drugs (ATD), surgery, and radioactive iodine (RAI). In males, norm...

Conclusions In contrast to conventional wisdom that combined TCA and MAOI therapy should be avoided, the judicious use of this combination may be relatively safe and effective compared with combined TCA plus TCA therapy. However, sample sizes were limited, and the analysis was nonrandomized and retrospective.
Abstract Ferula hermonis Boiss, is an endemic plant of Lebanon, locally known as "shilsh El-zallouh". It has been extensively used in traditional medicine as an aphrodisiac and for the treatment of sexual impotence. Crude extracts and isolated compounds of ferula hermonis contain phytoestrogenic substances having a wide spectrum of in vitro and in vivo pharmacological properties including anti-osteoporosis, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-fungal, anti-cancer and as sexual activity enhancer. The aim of this mini-review is to highlight the traditional and novel applications of this plant's extra...

ConclusionsThe study showed that over half of the frequently used medicinal plants showed moderate to high mutagenicity before and after metabolism at the concentration of a 100 μg/mL. This may have implications for the safety of those who use them to manage diseases. These findings will suggest the need for an in-depth study of the mutagenic potentials of plants commonly used by indigenous people and more especially for those exhibiting high mutagenicity in this study.Graphical abstract
