Clinical and histopathologic overlaps between the muscular dystrophies and inflammatory myopathies are being increasingly recognized. Most patients with a muscular dystrophy show improvement with prednisone treatment, although they will not be cured; many patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are cured. Dysferlin-deficiency was recently(More)
Mutations in the dysferlin gene cause limb girdle muscular dystrophy 2B (LGMD2B) and Miyoshi myopathy. Dysferlin-deficient cells show abnormalities in vesicular traffic and membrane repair although onset of symptoms is not commonly seen until the late teenage years and is often associated with subacute onset and marked muscle inflammation. To identify(More)
Malignant pleural effusions cause significant morbidity, but there is no gold standard minimally invasive treatment. A new therapeutic approach combines talc pleurodesis and indwelling pleural catheters (IPCs) to enable outpatient management. This case series summarizes the safety and efficacy data of all patients (24) with a symptomatic malignant pleural(More)
Content management is increasingly becoming a complex task. The Future Internet is expected to provide services which is content centric. The multimedia content described syntactically, semantically, but these powerful capabilities remain untapped and this results in diminishing benefits. In the research, how the content intelligently forward based on(More)
— This paper describes the concept of " Zone " and also the method of realizing a Zone using UPnP. We present the details of how a mobile device can detect that it is in a Zone using RFID based mechanism. In this paper we propose a framework for creating a Zone, discovering Zone and service delivery by leveraging the existing technologies like UPnP and(More)
BACKGROUND Artemisinins, which are derived from plants, are subject to risk of supply interruption due to climatic changes. Consequently, an effort to identify a new synthetic antimalarial was initiated. A fixed-dose combination of arterolane maleate (AM), a new synthetic trioxolane, with piperaquine phosphate (PQP), a long half-life bisquinoline, was(More)
Conventional Abrams biopsy shows low sensitivity in suspected malignant pleural disease. There are limited data on the improvement in sensitivity by adding in image guidance. This retrospective study compares the diagnostic sensitivity of Abrams biopsy using ultrasound guidance with CT-guided Tru-Cut biopsy in suspected malignant pleural disease. Data were(More)
