Plasma protein C (PC) antigen concentration has been shown to be normal or increased in patients with proteinuria. However, the available data concerning PC anticoagulant activity in nephrotic syndrome (NS) are limited. We measured plasma PC antigen concentration. PC anticoagulant activity, total and free protein (PS) concentrations, and antithrombin III(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate, in an animal whose skeleton is comparable to humans, the combined effects of estrogen depletion and Cd exposure on bone resorption by monitoring skeletal release of 45Ca and to determine whether Cd-induced bone resorption occurred independent of osteotropic hormone changes and renal dysfunction. Cd exposure(More)
We studied the coagulation cascade, fibrinolytic system and naturally occurring anticoagulants in a group of 14 patients with end-stage renal disease maintained on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). The results were compared with those obtained in a group of ten normal volunteers. Plasma procoagulant activities of factors XII, XI, IX, VIII,(More)
Exposure to persistent genotoxicants like benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) during postnatal days causes neurobehavioral changes in animal models. However, neurotoxic potential of B[a]P and its association with 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) induced neurobehavioral changes are yet to be explored. The growth of rat brain peaks at the first week of birth and continues up to(More)
Humans are exposed to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) by ingestion of contaminated food and water. Prenatal exposure to benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) like PAHs through the placental barrier and neonatal exposure by breast milk and the environment may affect early brain development. In the present study, single intracisternal administration of B[a]P (0.2(More)
Environmental neurotoxicants like benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) have been well documented regarding their potential to induce oxidative stress. However, neonatal exposure to B[a]P and its subsequent effect on anti-oxidant defence system and hippocampal cytomorphometry leading to behavioral changes have not been fully elucidated. We investigated the effect of acute(More)
Surgical treatment of the degenerative disc disease has evolved from traditional open spine surgery to minimally invasive spine surgery including endoscopic spine surgery. Constant improvement in the imaging modality especially with introduction of the magnetic resonance imaging, it is possible to identify culprit degenerated disc segment and again with the(More)
A case of spontaneous premature menopause due to autoimmune ovarian failure is described. This report emphasises that this uncommon condition is important to diagnose because of its association with other autoimmune endocrine disorders including Addison's disease. In addition, in the present case, the marked increase in luteinizing hormone with relatively(More)
Patients with chronic spinal cord injury (SCI) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) exhibit antithrombin III deficiency and several other coagulation abnormalities. In view of increasing recognition of protein C (PC) as an important, naturally occurring anticoagulant and fibrinolytic factor, we studied plasma PC in this population. PC antigen concentration(More)
The Authors report a new technique with trans sacral epiduroscopy assisted Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy (PELD) for high grade centrally down migrated lumbar disc herniation. When the chances of missing the disc fragments are high, as in the cases of down migrated disc herniations by conventional transforaminal PELD, it can be assisted by sacral(More)
