ZigBee is the emerging industrial standard for Ad hoc networks based on the IEEE 802.15.4 physical and MAC layers standard. It was originally specified for low data rate, low power consumption and low cost wireless personal area networks (WPANs). ZigBee is expected to be used in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) for industrial sensing and control(More)
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an episodic, potentially fatal, multisystem autoimmune disease characterized by the presence of antinuclear antibodies especially to double stranded DNA. Bullous systemic lupus erythematosus is an extremely rare subset of lupus erythematosus. We report a 10-year-old boy with bullous SLE and nephrotic syndrome.
PURPOSE To investigate the effect of food, protein, and vitamin restriction on the susceptibility of lens crystallins to aggregation and chaperone activity of alpha-crystallin. METHODS Thirty day old Wistar/NIN rats were maintained on regular rodent diet (C), 50% food restriction (FR), 75% protein restriction (PR), and 50% vitamin restriction (VR) diet(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the anticonvulsant activity and neurotoxicity of ethanolic extract and ethyl acetate fraction of the rhizome of Smilax china (EESC and EAF, respectively) in mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS The anticonvulsant activities of EESC and EAF were studied against maximal electroshock (MES) and pentylenetetrazole (PTZ)-induced seizures in mice and(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess anti-psoriatic activity of the methanol extract and the isolated flavonoid quercetin from the rhizome of Smilax china (S. china) Linn. METHODS Mouse tail test was used for the evaluation of anti-psoriatic activity. Methanol extract (100 and 200 mg/kg b.w.) and isolated flavonoid quercetin (25 and 50 mg/kg b.w.) were tested in Swiss(More)
A 9-year-old girl presented with fever for 4 days. On day 8 of illness, when her fever subsided, she developed hypotension. Her platelet count dropped to 15000/ml and hematocrit increased to 42.8%. She was resuscitated with fluid boluses. She developed typical dengue rash of convalescence 3 days after defervescence (Fig. 2). Her dengue serology IgM and IgG(More)
