To determine the effect of Metronidazole (Flagyl®) on distribution of collagen fibers in the pregnant rat uterus during the implantation period on days 7 and 9 day post coitum (dpc), sixty-four female rats of confirmed pregnancy have been used ,divided into two treated groups (48 rats) received oral dosage commercial Metronidazole (Flagyl®( and one control group (16 rats) received distilled water via the same route. Histological technique was applied for sections taken from implantation sites at days 7 and 9 dpc. The sections were stained in Hematoxylin and Eosin and Gomori's one step-trichrome stains. The results indicates that blastocysts were able to implant successfully and have initiated the implantation reaction and decidualization in the uteri of all rats used. As a normal reaction on day 7 dpc collagen fibers was found to be virtually absent in the decidual tissue of primary decidual zone (PDZ) and secondary decidual zone (SDZ) in contrast to undifferentiated zone (UDZ) in which the fibers was widely distributed.
On day 9 dpc collagen fibers were abundant in the mesometrialdecidual zone (MDZ). Collagen fibers were an important support to the blood vessels in this area which represents a prime route for establishment of nutrient supply through maternal blood vessels supplying the chorioallantoic
placenta of rat. The results have revealed that oral intake of Metronidazole did not interfere with the normal process of implantation of rat blastocyst.

The Single Machine Scheduling (SMS) problem with Multiple Objective Function (MOF) is one of the most representative problems in the scheduling area. In this paper, we consider the SMS problem with linear earliness and quadratic tardiness costs, and no machine idle time. The chosen method is based on memetic algorithm and genetic algorithm.
For this purpose, Genetic Algorithms (GA) are a population-based Meta heuristics. They have been successfully applied to many optimization problems. A Memetic Algorithm (MA) is an extension of the traditional genetic algorithm. And we introduce two types of crossover. The methods were tested and various experimental results show that MA performs better than the GA for big jobs but GA was better with small jobs.

journal of kerbala university, Volume 1, Issue 0, Pages 114-123

Breast cancer detection images are the standard clinical practice for the diagnosis and prognosis of breast cancer. Digital Mammogram has emerged as the most popular screening technique for early detection of Breast Cancer and other abnormalities. Raw digital mammograms are medical images that are difficult to interpret so we need to develop Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems that will improve detection of abnormalities in mammogram images. In this paper we present a fully algorithm for detection of abnormal masses by anatomical segmentation of Breast Region of Interest (ROI). We are using medio-lateral oblique (MLO) view of mammograms. We have proposed method Marker-Controlled Watershed Segmentation Algorithm (MCWSA). The algorithms proposed are fully autonomous, and are able to isolate and abnormal regions in the breast tissue, If any abnormalities are present it gets accurately highlighted by this algorithm thus helping the radiologists to further investigate these regions, a task very few existing mammogram segmentation algorithms can claim
