BACKGROUND Mosquitoes transmit serious human diseases, causing millions of deaths every year. Use of synthetic insecticides to control vector mosquitoes has caused physiological resistance and adverse environmental effects in addition to high operational cost. Insecticides of botanical origin have been reported as useful for control of mosquitoes.(More)
Proanthocyanidin is commonly used for inhibiting urinary tract infection (UTI) of sensitive strains of Escherichia coli. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of proanthocyanidin on adherence of uropathogenic multi-drug resistant E. coli to uroepithelial cells, which has not yet been investigated so far. Extracts of the purified(More)
BACKGROUND The hypothesis that the failing heart may be energy-starved is supported in part by observations of reduced rates of adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) synthesis through the creatine kinase (CK) reaction, the primary myocardial energy reservoir, in patients with heart failure (HF). Although murine models have been used to probe HF pathophysiology,(More)
Necrotising fasciitis is a rare but rapidly progressive and potentially life threatening infection of the soft tissue, involving subcutaneous tissue and deep fascial layer. It may affect any part of the body, but the extremities, abdominal wall, and perineum are most commonly affected. Here we present a case of necrotising fasciitis of the neck and anterior(More)
BACKGROUND Vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC) the hallmark of sickle cell disease (SCD) is often treated inadequately in the emergency department (ED). We hypothesized that pain management plans individualized for each patient can improve pain management and lead to high levels of patient satisfaction. PROCEDURE Starting in 2002, we treated all patients with SCD(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this work is to compare final visual outcomes in cases of surgically treated traumatic cataract between open-globe and closed-globe groups, as classified by the Birmingham Eye Trauma Terminology system. DESIGN Observational cohort study. SETTING Tertiary eye-care center at the trijunction of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and(More)
ATP is required for normal cardiac contractile function, and it has long been hypothesized that reduced energy delivery contributes to the contractile dysfunction of heart failure (HF). Despite experimental and clinical HF data showing reduced metabolism through cardiac creatine kinase (CK), the major myocardial energy reserve and temporal ATP buffer, a(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate clinical, etiological and EEG profile of neonatal seizures. METHODS In all the neonates enrolled in the study baseline information recorded was sex, gestational age, weight, ponderal index etc. Clinical profile of seizure episode included age at onset of seizure, type and duration of seizure, associated autonomic changes, medication(More)
