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. Azadirachta indica(More)
PURPOSE To compare central dialysis catheter patency rates after stripping procedures with those after urokinase (UK) infusion. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-seven tunneled catheters with either (i) flow rates less than 250 mL/min and established baseline flow rates > or = 300 mL/min or (ii) flow rates 50 mL/min less than higher established baseline flows(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)
This article describes proton MR spectroscopic analysis of cerebrospinal fluid of 167 children suffering from meningitis and 24 control cases. Quantification of 12 well-separated and commonly observed cerebrospinal fluid metabolites viz., beta-hydroxybutyrate, lactate, alanine, acetate, acetone, acetoacetate, pyruvate, glutamine, citrate,(More)
Despite continuing research for precise probing and grading of prostate cancer (PC) biomarkers, the indexes lack sensitivity and specificity. To search for PC biomarkers, we used proton nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H NMR)-derived serum metabolomics. The study comprises 102 serum samples obtained from low-grade (LG, n = 40) and high-grade (HG, n = 30) PC(More)
Although nephrotic syndrome is a very common kidney disease, little is known about the molecular changes occurring within glomerular capillary loops during development of disease. The characteristic histologic change is retraction (effacement) of the distal "foot" processes of glomerular epithelial cells (GEC) which surround the capillary loops. The GEC(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether abnormalities in routine blood tests were associated with increased susceptibility to hearing loss induced by cisplatin chemotherapy. DESIGN Cohort study of patients with head and neck cancer receiving cisplatin chemotherapy who underwent audiometric testing. SETTING A large, university-based hospital; part of a larger(More)
