Is this what you look for?
%%
A=["00000001111";"00000110010";"10111011100";"00001000110";"11111010000";"00000001010"];
%%
B = regexprep( A, "^[0]+", "" );
B = regexprep( B, "[0]+$", "" )
B = 6×1 string array
"1111" "11001" "101110111" "100011" "1111101" "101"
Notice that dec2bin() returns a character row, not double
dec2bin( 123, 16 )
ans = '0000000001111011'
