BACKGROUND Several children with autism show regression in language and social development while maintaining normal motor milestones. A clear period of normal development followed by regression and subsequent improvement with treatment, suggests a multifactorial etiology. The role of inflammation in autism is now a major area of study. Viral and bacterial(More)
Doxorubicin is one of the most effective agents used in the treatment of various tumors. Its use is restricted by the development of resistance to apoptosis, the mechanism of which is not fully understood. Nuclear transcription factor kappaB (NF-kappaB) has been shown both to block apoptosis and to promote cell proliferation, and hence has been considered(More)
Previous studies have shown that long-term event-free survival after percutaneous balloon mitral valvuloplasty (PBMV) could be predicted by several baseline characteristics. However, the extent of the predictive variables has not been defined accurately yet. In this study, 40 baseline demographic, clinical, echocardiographic, and hemodynamic variables of(More)
Doxorubicin is one of the most effective molecules used in the treatment of various tumors. Contradictory reports often open windows to understand the doxorubicin-mediated signaling to exert its apoptosis effect. In this report, we provide evidences that doxorubicin induced biphasic induction of nuclear factor kappaB (NF-kappaB) of immediate activation(More)
The RelA (p65) is a subunit of nuclear transcription factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) and actively participates in expression of NF-kappaB-dependent genes involved in inflammation and tumorigenesis. Hence, the regulation of p65 is an important strategy to regulate those responses. In this study, we provide data that the dichlorophenyl derivative of(More)
Doxorubicin is one of the most effective molecules used in the treatment of various tumors. Contradictory reports often open windows to understand the role of p53 tumor suppressor in doxorubicin-mediated cell death. In this report, we provide evidences that doxorubicin induced more cell death in p53-negative tumor cells. Several cells, having p53 basal(More)
