We propose a novel procedure for testing all multiple stuck-faults in a logic circuit using two complementary algorithms. The first algorithm finds pairs of input vectors to detect the occurrence of target single stuck-faults independent of the occurrence of other faults. The second uses a sophisticated branch and bound procedure to complete the test set… (More)
Serum C-reactive protein (CRP) is used as a marker of inflammation in several diseases including autoimmune disease and cardiovascular disease. CRP, a member of the pentraxin family, is comprised of five identical subunits. CRP has diverse ligand-binding properties which depend upon different structural states of CRP. However, little is known about the… (More)
C-reactive protein (CRP) performs two recognition functions that are relevant to cardiovascular disease. First, in its native pentameric conformation, CRP recognizes molecules and cells with exposed phosphocholine (PCh) groups, such as microbial pathogens and damaged cells. PCh-containing ligand-bound CRP activates the complement system to destroy the… (More)
In this retrospective report, we present two cases of unilateral Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease. These patients were evaluated with clinical, ophthalmological and laboratory examinations. Their response following corticosteroid administration was evaluated. Both patients had the characteristic clinical features of VKH involving only one eye, including… (More)
Perspectives An estimated 6.5 to 13.2 million people with opioid dependence, representing more than half of the world's estimated number, live in Asia. 1 Although most people in Asia who are opioid dependent use heroin or opium, the use of pharmaceutical opioids, mainly through the injecting route, has raised concern in recent years. and Sri Lanka – the… (More)
Closed posterior dislocation of the ankle without a fracture is a rare injury. We are reporting a case in a young male on his motorbike, being hit at the right ankle from behind. The mechanisms of injury along with MRI findings are being discussed.
BACKGROUND Although empirical studies have reported on substance use in children in India, multivariable statistical models examining risk factors in children seeking treatment for substance use are largely lacking. The goal of this study was to test a conceptual model predicting age of first use, duration of use of any psychoactive substance, and primary… (More)
Drug based nanoparticle (NP) formulations have gained considerable attention over the past decade for their use in various drug delivery systems. NPs have been shown to increase bioavailability, decrease side effects of highly toxic drugs, and prolong drug release. Furthermore, polymer based, biodegradable nanodelivery has become increasing popular in the… (More)
We report a case of pituitary macroadenoma with multiple physical and psychiatric complications, which posed a significant diagnostic dilemma and management challenge for the treating teams of neurosurgery, endocrinology and psychiatry. A pragmatic approach comprising of interdisciplinary collaboration resulted in satisfactory management of the case.
The objective of this paper to generalize certain Tauberian results proved by Gehring  for summability (í µí° ¶, í µí±; í µí»¼) of sequences to functions. In  A. V. Boyd generalized the Tauberian theorem for í µí»¼ convergence of Cesí µí± ro means of sequences. In this paper ,we obtain some Tauberian theorems for (í µí° ¶, í µí»¼, í µí»½)… (More)
