The lethal dose 50 (LD50) test involves the administration of cadmium in the form of CdCl2 to group of animals at an increasing dose in order to determine the dose that kills 50 percent of the test mice within a set of time frame (24 and 48h).
The cadmium contents of liver and kidneys from dosed and control animals were determined by atomic absorption spectroscopy moreover, levels of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), in the target tissue were measured.. Male mice were dosed by 0.15ml cadmium (equivalent to the LD50 5.98 mg/kg body weight) in the form of CdCl2 via intraperitoneal injection for short-term treatment once per 24, 48 and 72h and, for long-term treatment once per week for 1, 4and 8 weeks then, sacrificed.
The results showed that the effect of short-term and long-term Cd-administration on hepatic and renal Cd accumulation in the Swiss mice was found to be time dependent fashion. Atomic absorption examination showed that the Cd-content in both liver and kidneys increased significantly time dependent by 98-145% in liver and 100-300% in kidney at short-term treatment whereas for long-term treatment this increasing were 143-173% in liver and 200-370% in kidney respectively.
This study also presents the histopathological effects in mice liver and kidney. Long-term Cd exposure produced damage to the entire kidney, including tubular degeneration, tubular cell apoptosis, interstitial inflammation and glomerular swelling and also resulted in liver injury including non-specific chronic inflammation and apoptosis, while it was less pronounced in short-term exposure.. Results of the biochemical profile indicated marked hepatic and renal toxic effect of cadmium reflected by the dramatic change in alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity level, in the liver and kidney tissue. a significant increase (from100 to130%) in hepatic ALP activity, while the renal ALP activity level decreased by (from 95% to 65 %) as compared with those levels of the control in all relative periods of exposure.

Various approaches of skin detection have yet to demonstrate a stable state of performance. This is due to skin color in an image that is sensitive to variant illumination, camera adjustments, and human skin types. To contribute in overcome this problem a robust skin detection method that integrates both color and texture features is proposed. Texture features were estimated using statistical measures as range, standard deviation, and entropy. Back-propagation artificial neural network is then used to learn features and classify any given inputs. In this work, two skin detectors based on texture features only, and a combination of both color and texture features (proposed) have been constructed. Furthermore, the paper analyzes and compares the obtained results from the both skin detectors to show the impact of the integrating color and texture features to the robustness level. It found that the proposed skin detection method achieved a true positive rate of approximately 94.5% and a false positive rate of approximately 0.89%. Experimental results showed that proposed approach is more efficient compared with other state-of-the-art texture-based skin detector approaches.

Researches and techniques of pattern recognition aim at finding and developing techniques for recognizing certain patterns or structures in the digital signals. A signal can represent a sound segment or a verbal segment comprising a word or even a computer text.
This research aims building a system that works on extracting the features distinguishing English letters pronunciation through entering sound segments (26 sound segments each of which representing one of the English letters) to the computer. (WAV) extension files have been used because this type of files cannot be affected by compression process. Each sound segment enters primary processing. After that, the distinctive features of each sound segment are extracted through finding the value of fractal dimension, by using the 2-Dimension Variation Algorithm, then analyzing and studying the fractal dimension values resulting from each sound segment to recognize the pronunciation of the entered letter.
After, it has been shown that fractal dimension is a distinctive feature for pronouncing the entered English letters, and that using the 2-D Variation method for calculating fractal dimension yielded accurate results that comply with the research requirements.
