This study was undertaken with the aim to analyze the clinical relevance of posttransplant anti-HLA and anti-major histocompatibility complex class I related chain A (MICA) antibodies in response to living related donor renal transplantation. A total of 185 consecutive post-renal transplant recipient serum samples were analyzed for the detection of anti-HLA(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the donor-specific antibody repertoire against T and B cells and monocytes, as well as the non-donor anti-HLA, and MICA (MHC class I-related chain A) antibodies in recipients of the live related donor renal transplantation. Sera collected before and after transplantation were tested by ELISA for the presence of(More)
BACKGROUND In-spite of many renal transplant (RT) centres in the country, there is paucity of data on the survival results in India. Furthermore, there is hardly any data of results in second decade. In this study we present the results of RT in second decade at our centre. METHODS RT at our hospital is being done since 1972. First eight years saw(More)
A 19-year-old male presented with fever, oliguria and purpuric lesions involving both hands. The patient was diagnosed as a case of purpura fulminans with disseminated intravascular coagulation due to complicated Falciparum malaria. The case is presented to sensitize the physicians to keep malaria as a differential in cases of fever with purpura fulminans.
It is estimated that 10-15% of the population has chronic kidney disease (CKD), resulting in significant health expenditure, which is largely met by out-of-pocket by the patient in India. However, the seriousness of this public health problem has remained largely under-recognized so far. Luckily the preventive measures are simple and not difficult to(More)
BACKGROUND Infectious diseases remain among the major morbid events in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on renal replacement therapy (RRT). In developing countries, tuberculosis (TB) has been found to occur more frequently in these patients than in the general population. Efficacy of isoniazid (INH) chemoprophylaxis has been seen in other(More)
