Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disease worldwide. Pharmacological treatments presently available can slow down the progression of symptoms but can not cure the disease. Currently there is widening recognition that AD is closely associated with impaired insulin signaling and glucose metabolism in brain, suggesting it to be a(More)
The ability to reserve real-time connections in advance is essential in all distributed multiparty applications (i.e., applications involving multiple human beings) using a network that controls admissions to provide good quality of service. This paper discusses the requirements of the clients of an advance reservation service, and a distributed design for(More)
The treatment of steroid-resistant minimal change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS) continues to pose a therapeutic challenge. We conducted a randomised prospective controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of IV cyclophosphamide compared with oral cyclophosphamide in 13 children with biopsy-proven steroid-resistant MCNS. All 7 patients receiving IV(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of tacrolimus (TAC) in children with SRNS. The study group comprised of 22 consecutive children with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) who were studied prospectively. TAC was initiated with a dose of 0.10 mg/kg/day, and the dose was increased to attain a trough level of 5.0-10.0 g/l.(More)
Crescentic glomerulonephritis (CsGN) is an uncommon entity in children. This prospective study was conducted to evaluate the aetiology, clinical spectrum and outcome in children with crescentic glomerulonephritis.

PURPOSE To show the variations in the hypothenar muscles and the arborization patterns of the ulnar nerve and to investigate the relationship between the hypothenar muscles and the ulnar nerve. METHODS We performed an anatomic study of 35 hands from embalmed cadavers. After dissecting the ulnar side of the hand we recorded the number of hypothenar muscles(More)
A prospective analysis of all new pediatric cases of chronic renal failure (CRF) was performed at our hospital over a 1-year period. The diagnosis of CRF was based on serum creatinine >2 mg/dl with supportive clinical, laboratory, and radiological findings. There were a total of 48 patients with CRF with a median age of 13 years (range 10 days to 16 years).(More)
BACKGROUND The putative genetic regulation of multidrug resistance gene-1 (MDR-1) gene expression and P-glycoprotein function has not yet been clearly delineated in patients with nephrotic syndrome (NS). We undertook this study to examine the distribution of three most frequent MDR-1 exonic polymorphisms G3435C, G2677T/A and C1236T in patients with NS and(More)
