Prospects and constraints of formal rice seed systems in Nepal
S Sapkota, PP Regmi, S Pandey, B Tripathi, SK Sah
Agronomy Journal of Nepal , 2011, DOI: 10.3126/ajn.v2i0.7531
Abstract: Rice ( Oryza sativa) is the main crop of Nepal. Farmers in Nepal mostly use seed from their stock in the form of informal seed systems which is around 92.3% of total seed requirements. In Nepal, formal seed of rice is distributed mostly by public institutions and very nominal amount by private seed dealers. Unavailability of quality seed of preferred variety is the key issue for rice seed systems. This study tries to attempt to address existing rice seed supply systems in Nepal thereby understanding its opportunities and constraints. The study was undertaken by collecting information from various documented sources and primary data from the household survey done at Chitwan and some seed related institutions during 2010/11. Formal and the informal are the two dimensions of the seed system for rice. Farm saved seed and farmers- to- farmers exchange of seed are informal seed system whereas private seed dealers and public institutions’ involvement in the seed sector are formal seed systems. Due to dominant of informal seed systems, there is the low seed replacement rate of 8.7% for rice. Nevertheless, breeder seed is solely produced by different Research Centers of Nepal Agriculture Research Council (NARC), whereas foundation seed is produced by NARC Research Centers and other institutes as well. This amount of source seed does not seem enough to cover rice areas of the country. To tackle problem of seed insufficiency, quality of source seed should be maintained by public institutions aside from creating awareness to farmers by service providers about the importance of producing certified seed by using foundation seed in farmers’ field.

Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2019.72031
Abstract: This research is about the study of the Saving and Credit Co-operative Societies (SACCOS) employees’ personality traits, self-efficacy, and organizational commitment of Kathmandu district. The researchers have used Mini-IPIP five-factor model personality. The scale consists of 20-items short form of the 50-items IPIP-FFM. The Big Five personality traits have measured employee’s agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability, extraversion and intellect. The Organizational commitment scale is used to measure the employee’s affective, normative and continuance commitment. The employees are human capital and without their contribution, no one can imagine of this present digital world. The Self-efficacy scale is used to find the optimistic beliefs of employees’ competence to deal efficiently with a variety of stressful situations. The total sample size consists of 260 employees (Male = 127 & Female = 133). The samples are drawn from Sixty Three SACCOS of Kathmandu district only. This study finds the relationships among the SACCOS employees’ personality traits, commitment and self-efficacy to handle the employees’ behavior efficiently for the overall productivity of an organization.
IKKbeta and p53 as therapeutic targets for arthritis
PP Tak
Arthritis Research & Therapy , 2001, DOI: 10.1186/ar335
Abstract: NF-κB activation is another factor involved in the persistent activation of synovial cells and impaired apoptosis. IκB kinase β (IKKβ) is a key regulator of NF-κB. We observed the development of arthritis after intra-articular adenoviral gene transfer of IKKβ-wt into the joints of normal rats. Increased IKK activity was detectable in the Ad.IKKβ-wt injected ankle joints, coincident with enhanced NF-κB binding activity. Conversely, intra-articular gene transfer of Ad.IKKβ-dn significantly ameliorated the severity of adjuvant arthritis in Lewis rats. This effect was accompanied by a significant decrease in levels of NF-κB binding activity. Targeting IKK activity may represent a valid new strategy for the treatment of RA.
Die vrou wysheid, God, en ekobillikheid: Liggaamsideologie in Spreuke 8:1–9:18

Abstract: The woman Wisdom, God, and ecojustice: Ideology of the body in Proverbs 8:1–9:18 This article examines the ideology of the body, specifi cally in terms of the gender of Wisdom and God, from an ecojustice perspective. Femininity within a God construct could contribute to a value system that incorporates compassion, interrelatedness and mutual care. In Proverbs 8:1–9:18, however, the woman Wisdom does not represent an ecofriendly construct, but simply enhances and supports the patriarchal, masculine values incorporated in the God Yahweh.
Tribhuvan University certificate nursing curriculum
K. Regmi,S Regmi,M. Shahi
Journal of Institute of Medicine , 2009, DOI: 10.3126/joim.v31i3.2997
Abstract: Introduction: A Nepalese certificate of nursing curriculum was developed in 1977 and has been used since with a few revisions. There has been open debate about continuing gaps between theory, as expressed in the curriculum, and practice. The purpose of this study was to evaluate this 3-year undergraduate curriculum, and to draw general lessons, which might help to develop appropriate strategies to improve nursing education in Nepal. Methods: A mixed evaluation method was used consisting of reviews of current curriculum theories/ models, and interviews with nursing students (15) and nursing tutors (10). Results: Both students and tutors were generally positive about the curriculum and its intended learning outcomes. While reviewing the existing curriculum, analysis revealed that there was limited use of curriculum theories and models. Conclusions: There is a need to focus more on the development of abilities related to evidence-based learning. Selection of appropriate teaching-learning methodologies in response to the growing needs of students and professionals, development of learning strategies to reduce the gap between educational theories and nursing practice, in line with a humanistic paradigm in nursing education is important. Keywords: Curriculum evaluation, Nepal, nurses, nursing education. DOI: 10.3126/joim.v31i3.2997 Journal of Institute of Medicine, December, 2009; 31(3) 46-55

PR Regmi,AB Upadhyaya
Nepalese Heart Journal , 2011, DOI: 10.3126/njh.v8i1.8331
Abstract: Background Rheumatic Fever (RF) causes 25-40% of all cardio vascular disease in developing countries. Long term benzathine penicillin injection is being used for secondary prophylaxis of RF / RHD. Although allergic reaction to penicillin is rare skin testing is performed routinely before each and every penicillin injection delivery in most of the hospitals in Nepal. Objectives Objectives of this study was to evaluate safety of long term benzathine penicillin injection and establish recommendations for penicillin skin testing. Methods Data from the registers of National RF/RHD prevention and control programme from 32 hospitals of Nepal were collected and analyzed in a retrospective study. Results 65 patients (1.4%) among 77300 injections of benzathine penicillin given to 4712 patients, had allergic reactions. 5 had anaphylaxis, an incidence of 0.1% (0.7/10000 injections), 60 had minor allergy, an incidence of 1.3%. Conclusions Life-threatening allergic reactions are very rare in patients on long-term intramuscular benzathine penicillin for secondary prevention of RF. With these rare complications, regular skin test before each and every benzathine penicillin injection delivery has no significant role. Nevertheless Skin testing is recommended before 1st injection and patients having different batch number and or brand name.

Sudip Pandey,Chiranjivi Regmi
Nepal Journal of Science and Technology , 2013, DOI: 10.3126/njst.v14i1.8931
Abstract: Biomass such as agricultural and forestry residues are important resources for energy in Nepal. This biomass can be converted into densified soild biofuel by briquetting fuel technology which can address handling, transportation, and storage problems. In addition, it helps to increase a number of applications and enhance its utilization efficiency. The purpose of this study is to quantify the physical and chemical properties of different biomass, such as sawdust, banana stem, rice straw, etc. and combustion in order to investigate clear options. Additionally, it helps to provide the efficiency of stoves available at Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) laboratory. Among the feedstock tested, Mikania micrantha char had highest fixed carbon of 45.92% which clearly shows that it is a good source for biomass briquetting. Out of four stoves tested, Baked Ceramic 4 BHB Stoves had highest efficiency of 33.4% with Banmara briquettes. The study also showed reduced emission of harmful gases ultimately reducing the indoor air pollution. Thus, with the proper densification these fuels can be used as a substitute for the traditional fuels in domestic as well as industrial application in furnaces, boilers and kilns.

Advances in Lung Cancer (ALC) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/alc.2014.34011

Background: Percutaneous ablation therapy as a treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has been increasingly utilized. There is little data on long term efficacy. Because of this we reviewed the rate of recurrence of all ablation procedures done at our institution for the last 6 years. Methods: A total of 36 patients underwent 43 percutaneous procedures from July 2008 until January 2014 at our institution. There were 9 patients treated with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and 27 treated withmicrowave ablation (MWA) for Stage I NSCLC. Each patient was reviewed to determine if there was a recurrence, the time to recurrence and the characteristics of the original cancer possibly predisposing the procedure to failure. Results: There were 8 recurrences in 9 patients undergoing RFA occurring at a median time of 842 days (range 425 - 1568) after their procedure. MWA was utilized in 27 patients for 34 procedures with 11 patients experiencing recurrences at a median time of 487 days (range 168 - 845). The median follow up time for the RFA patients was 1631 days (4.46 years) and for the MWA patients 751 days (2.06 years). Of the RFA recurrences, 5 involved systemic spread of their cancer and 3 were limited to site recurrences only. Of the MWA recurrences, 5 involved systemic spread of their cancer, 2 had chest wall recurrences and 4 were limited to site recurrences only.
