As well as, IL-10 has important main inhibitory cytokine against the work of inflammatory cytokines, as interleukin 12. Therefore, this &nbsp;study was designed to evaluate the serum level of interleukin 10 and biochemical tests in Iraqi diabetic patients and controls [fasting blood sugar (FBS);urea; creatinine; triglyceride (T.G);&nbsp; total cholesterol; &nbsp;low density lipoprotein (LDL) ; high density lipoprotein (HDL); &nbsp;as well as very low density lipoprotein &nbsp;(VLDL). Interleukin 10 (IL10) serum level was measure by ELISA kit for both groups. This study was conducted from January-April 2018 in Specialist Center for Endocrinology and Diabetes in Baghdad government and correlates between IL10 concentration and biochemical tests in diabetic Iraqi patients. Results of current study showed a high incidence of&nbsp; both diabetes types ( I&amp;II) of in the age group 2 ( &nbsp;41-60) years old&nbsp; as (NO.= 13, 11) and percentage as (17.3, 14.7)&nbsp; %respectively, so, female(NO= 18 ,14) and percentage as (20.0, 18.7) %respectively had a higher prevalence of diabetes than male[12.0 ,12.0) and high incidence of&nbsp; diabetes in female[20.0, 18.7] % more than male. Additionally, this study showed that creatinine; urea; F.B.S levels were higher (26.7;4.0,28.0]% in diabetic type I than diabetic type II as (20,0,24.0]% and compare to control as [17.3, 14.7 and 0)%.and increased levels of lipid profile as ( Total Cholesterol; triglyceride T.G ;&nbsp; LDL ; HDL ; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;and &nbsp;VLDL ) in diabetic type I as (10 ; 16 ; 12 ;1 ; 20) % than in diabetic type II; as well as; IL-10 serum level was abnormal with creatinine levels in 35 patients as percentage 46.7%; &nbsp;also IL-10 serum level was abnormal with&nbsp; fasting blood sugar for&nbsp; 39 patients as percentage 52.0%; &nbsp;whilst only 3 patients as 4.0% with abnormal urea levels as well as IL-10 level was abnormal with levels lipid profile as&nbsp; ( Triglyceride T.G ; Total Cholesterol;&nbsp; LDL , HDL and&nbsp; VLDL)as ( 1.3; 25.3; 38.7 ; 26.7 and 22.7) % respectively. Based on these facts, it may be concluded that abnormal serum levels of IL-10 with biochemical tests can be considered as risk factors of diabetes.</p> Hussein Thumad Alkaisey ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-12-23 2018-12-23 26 10 181 191 10.29196/jubpas.v26i10.1854 Testicular Sparing Surgery For A 5-Year- Old Boy with Sertoli's Cell Tumour of the Testis: Case Report <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Introduction: </strong>Steroli's cell tumors SCT are the rare testicular tumor.

There are various recommendations on troubleshooting of queries performance deceleration. However, there are no results of experimental investigations on the effectiveness of applying other recommendations given in scientific literature. The authors have conducted numerical experiments for the investigation of recommendations, both existing and proposed by the authors, to determine the quantitative values of the effectiveness of applying recommendations. A number of recommendations are illustrated by means of examples of applying recommendations including several alternative variations. The work describes the differences in the effectiveness of applying recommendations in different systems of database management considered in this article. The work describes relative values of the effectiveness of applying recommendations compared with source queries. As a result of the article, the authors have developed the algorithm of query text analysis and applying recommendations. Investigation results expand knowledge on practical applying both known and new recommendations for optimization of queries to database tables.

Wireless networks are also used to have data transfer. In such cases, there are problems with&nbsp; resourcece-constraintnednetworks. The problems include a delay in communication and reduction in Quality of Service (QoS). Topology control can solve this problem to some extent. However, the delay performance and QoS need to be improved further to support intended operations in wireless networks. When relay node concept is considered, it is possible to optimize performance in such networks. In this paper, we proposed a Genetic Algorithm (GA) based relay configuration for optimizing delay performance in WSN. Relay nodes compute optimal positions using the proposed algorithm so as to improve QoS and reduce delay as much as possible. We implemented the algorithm using NS2 simulations. The results revealed that the proposed approach is able to improve QoS, reduce delay besides improving network performance in terms of throughput, network capacity, and energy efficiency.</p> Saif Khalid Musluh Alaa Abid Muslam Raid Abd Alreda Shekan ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-12-24 2018-12-24 26 10 281 308 10.29196/jubpas.v26i10.1886 Effect of Manganese and Potassium Humate on some Vegetative and Yield Parameters of Tomato Plant Lycopersicon esculentum Mill Grown in Plastic House <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Afield experiment was conducted in a plastic house in Al-wattifiyah / Babylon Province during 2016/2017 season , soil texture was Loamy Sand with 3 levels of manganese element (0 , 20 , and&nbsp; 40 mg .L<sup>-1</sup>) using MnSO4.4H2O, and 4 levels of&nbsp; potassium humate&nbsp; (0 , 10 , 20 , and 30 ml.L<sup>-1</sup>) , and their interaction on some vegetative and yield&nbsp; parameters of tomato plant Shahira&nbsp; variety. 4 spraying date among 20 days each, The experiment design was according to RCBD with 3 replicates, means were compared using L.S.D at 0.05 probability level.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The result show</strong>, the treatment (40 mg&nbsp; Mn.L<sup>-1</sup>) gave significant increases in plant height, total leaf&nbsp; No. , leaf area , plant dry matter , leaf content from chlorophyll, leaf dry matter percent, inflorescence number per plant , and No. of flowers per&nbsp; inflorescence, No. of fruit per plant, fruit weight, total yield of plant , and total yield per m<sup>2 </sup>&nbsp;gave high value was 212.65 cm, 42.7 leaf , 172.6 ds<sup>2</sup> , 185.9 gm , 45.03 spad , 11.8 inflorescence , 10.2 flowers , 47.6 fruits , 101.8 g m , 4.880 kg, and 16.252 kg.m<sup>2</sup> respectively .

Furthermore, the bank guarantee has positive impact on legal reliability International contracts among the parties. In line with that the independency of bank guarantee from contract terms is other advantage that has been led to consider the bank guarantee as an innovative financial instrument to increase the chance of minimizing the risks. The fact is that bank guarantee associated with paying amount of guarantee in cash and gets rid of the legal dispute over the formalities and delays in getting the right when one party of the contract did not fulfill its obligations. This potential capability of bank guarantee is still suffering lack of certainty on independency of bank guarantee in banking regulations. In this regard, the judgment of international arbitration and their procedures are valuable in understanding and analyzing the banking regulation about bank guarantees. The judgments of international arbitration mostly consider as one appropriate source to manifest a proper approach for legal analysis of independency. Thus, this research would review Iran –US Claims Tribunal as one of the significant cases to find out whether the tribunal has been able to eliminate the legal ambiguities and promote the legal position of these tools through such judgments?</p> Mohammad Sadeghi Ali Ahamdi ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-12-24 2018-12-24 26 10 301 308 10.29196/jubpas.v26i10.1888 Routing Strategy for Internet of Vehicles based on Hierarchical SDN and Fog Computing <p style="text-align: justify;">The fog computing is invited to solve the lack of resources problem in the sensors of Internet of Things (IoT) and handle the tasks quickly. Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is a special application of IoT networks that composed of heterogeneous sensors that are found in vehicles. These sensors transfer the tasks to the fog servers that process them and give the responses to the sensors. However, the mobility of vehicles effects on the delivery operation of responses. When the source vehicle of a task exited from the domain of some fog server through the processing time of this task, the response will not be reached to that vehicle correctly. Therefore, it is need to compute the optimal path to that vehicle. This process causes exceeding the task deadline and decreasing the throughput. To overcome this issue, this paper produces a hierarchical architecture based on Software Defined Network (SDN) and fog computing for IoV networks. This architecture consists of IoV vehicles, fog computing framework, semi-central SDN controllers and central SDN controller layers. Moreover, a routing strategy is proposed called <u>D</u>elay-Efficient <u>R</u>outing strategy based on <u>S</u>DN and <u>F</u>og computing for <u>I</u>oV (DRSFI). The SDN controllers perform DRSFI to compute the routes with minimum delay with taking into consideration the available bandwidth constraint and the location and speed of the vehicle. From the results of simulation of different scenarios with various mobility speeds and various number of tasks, we concluded that the proposed system is better than IoV-Fog-central SDN system and IoV-Fog system in terms of average delay from end to end, percentage of packet loss and percentage of successfully transmission.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> Ahmed Jawad Kadhim Seyed Amin Hosseini Seno Rana Ali Shihab ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-12-24 2018-12-24 26 10 309 319 10.29196/jubpas.v26i10.1896 Multiple-Deposition of Cadmium Oxide Nnanocrystalline Thin Films Prepared by Chemical Bath Deposition Technique <p style="text-align: justify;">In this work CdO nanocrystalline thin films have been prepared by chemical bath deposition technique(CBD) , on commercial glass substrates at room temperature. cadmium nitrat as a source of cadmium ions(Cd<sup>+2</sup>) and Ammonium hydroxide as a source of hydroxide ions (OH<sup>-2</sup>).
