Two distinct rotavirus RNA electrophoretypes were revealed by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis followed by silver staining (PAGE-SS). The rotavirus was sampled from the faeces of buffalo calves in India from October, 1986 to January, 1987. In the buffalo farm under study one electrophoretype was prevalent first and then the second appeared after the(More)
Variations in dental anatomy and canal morphology are found in all teeth. Knowledge of these variations, particularly the location and treatment of all canals, plays a key role in the success of endodontic therapy. The presence of extra canals, apical ramification, or lateral canals is commonly encountered, and their incidence and significance have been(More)
The relationship of vasculogenic mimicry to pigment in nodular vertical growth phase [VGP] cutaneous melanomas is assessed in this study. 10 nodules each from 27 tumors, 15 pigmented and 12 amelanotic were sampled in proportion to the pigment level. Serial frozen and paraffin sections subjected to HE, Reticulin, PAS to assess the vascular pattern; Dopa(More)
Melanomas, highly malignant tumors arise from the melanocytes which originate as multipotent neural crest cells during neural tube genesis. The purpose of this study is to assess the pattern of neural differentiation in relation to angiogenesis in VGP melanomas using the tumor as a three dimensional system. Tumor-vascular complexes [TVC] are formed at the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the factors associated with low birth weight (LBW) and to formulate a scale to predict the probability of having a LBW infant. METHODS This hospital based case-control study was conducted in a tertiary care university hospital in North India. The study included 250 LBW neonates and 250 neonates with birth weight ≥2,500 g. Data were(More)
Fluorescence spectroscopy was employed to characterize the kinetics of guest exchange in diblock copolymer micelles composed of poly(ethylene oxide-b-ε-caprolactone) (PEO-PCL) diblock copolymers in water/tetrahydrofuran (THF) mixtures which encapsulated fluorophores. The solvent composition (THF content) of the micelle solution was varied as a means of(More)
Iris serves as one of the best biometric modality owing to its complex, unique and stable structure. However, it can still be spoofed using fabricated eyeballs and contact lens. Accurate identification of contact lens is must for reliable performance of any biometric authentication system based on this modality. In this paper, we present a novel approach(More)
