To gain a better insight into the biological behavior of central neurocytomas, various proliferative indices were studied in these tumors and correlated with the histological features as well as the clinical outcome. Twenty cases of neurocytoma were selected over a 16 year period (1980-1995), which accounted for 0.28% of all intracranial tumors reported at(More)
The effects of the essential oils of onion (extracted from 2 g of raw onion per kg body weight) and garlic (extracted from 1 g of raw garlic per kg body weight) have been observed on experimental atherosclerosis produced by cholesterol feeding (0.5 g/kg) in rabbits. The rise in serum cholesterol and serum triglycerides was significantly reduced by both(More)
Amongst the human astrocytic tumours, the commonest of primary brain tumours, the clinical outcome of astrocytoma (AS) is significantly better than anaplastic astrocytoma (AA) and glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Often, low grade tumours can progress to or recur with a more malignant phenotype. Recent loss of heterozygosity (LOH) reports suspect the(More)
Immunohistochemistry of p53 protein is being increasingly performed as a clinical service as well as in research for prediction of tumor behavior. Although early reports suggested that p53 immunopositivity was associated with p53 gene alterations, recent evidence indicates that this is not always true. Earlier, we had demonstrated the significant(More)
Tumor angiogenesis occurs by recruitment of endothelial cell precursors or by sprouting of existing capillaries, which differ from the normal vasculature by having an altered morphology that can be exploited for diagnosis and as a prognostic indicator. Improved technologies have propelled diagnosis into a new era. These technologies have to be used with(More)
The effects of the essential oils of onion and garlic have been investigated in cholesterol-fed rabbits and have been compared with the effects of clofibrate. The marked rise in serum cholesterol and blood coagulability that followed 3 months of cholesterol feeding (0.2 g/kg/day) was significantly reduced by the essential oils of both onion and garlic.(More)
BACKGROUND Increased iron overload is frequent problem in thalassemia patients, and this is monitored by serum ferritin levels or chemical assessment of the iron levels in liver tissue. However, repeated monitoring of serum ferritin levels to assess the iron overload is an invasive procedure associated with practical problems. AIMS To use Perl's Prussian(More)
