Rhodiola imbricata is a medicinal plant having immunostimulating properties. The anti-proliferative effects of Rhodiola aqueous extract (RAE), were studied in human erythroleukemic cell line K-562 using MTT cell proliferation assay. The proliferation of K-562 was significantly decreased after 72h incubation with RAE at 100 and 200microg/ml. However, almost(More)
The surgical stress of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) procedure and the application of intra-operative pneumatic thigh tourniquet increases local fibrinolytic activity, which contributes significantly to post-operative blood loss. Tranexamic acid, an antifibrinolytic drug, is commonly used to control post-operative blood loss. The recommended mode of(More)
In a double-blind, randomized clinical trial with 78 adults with acute watery diarrhea and severe dehydration, 37 subjects were positive for Vibrio cholerae. In conjunction with rehydration therapy, 13 patients received norfloxacin, 12 received trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX), and 12 received a placebo. Norfloxacin was superior to TMP-SMX and to the(More)
BACKGROUND Perioperative fluid administration in morbidly obese patients is critical. There is scarcity of scientific information in literature on amount and rate of its application. Functional parameters (stroke volume variation (SVV), pulse pressure variation) are considered more accurate predictor of volume status of patients than blood pressure and(More)
BACKGROUND Rotavirus is the leading cause of severe, dehydrating diarrhea in children aged <5 years globally, with an estimated 25 million outpatient visits and 2 million hospitalizations attributable to rotavirus infections each year. The aim of this hospital-based surveillance was to summarize the local epidemiological and virological features of(More)
In a case-control study to understand the risk factors for development of life-threatening dehydration, a total of 379 children comprising 243 cases (moderate or severe dehydration) and 136 controls (non or mild dehydration) up to 2 years of age suffering from acute watery diarrhoea were studied. By univariate analysis, the presence of vibrios in stool,(More)
Radiation-induced exchange aberrations are thought to arise as a consequence of misrejoining of free ends of DNA double strand breaks (dsbs). In quiescent mammalian cells this process of misrejoining is prevalently taken up by the non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) process. In order to investigate the role of glutathione (GSH) in DNA dsb rejoining, the(More)
This study is aimed at the development of a safe radioprotective formulation to minimize human sufferings during accidental nuclear exposures. In the current study, a combination of three active principles, namely podophyllotoxin, podophyllotoxin beta-D-glucoside, and rutin (G-002M), isolated from Podophyllum hexandrum rhizomes, has been evaluated for its(More)
This study was performed in 32 ASA I patients undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotripsy under general anaesthesia, using absorption of 1% ethanol as a marker to monitor irrigation fluid absorption. Various parameters of fluid absorption were studied and compared, including irrigation fluid volume, irrigation time, total volume of irrigation fluid absorbed(More)
