Some leprosy patients suffer from clinical episodes associated with tissue damage which are designated as Type 1 (reversal reaction) when localized to the lesions and Type 2 (erythema nodosum leprosum, ENL) when accompanied by systemic involvement. We had reported earlier that stable, non-reaction lepromatous leprosy subjects show T helper 2 (Th2)- and Th0-(More)
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and superoxide anion (O2-) were estimated in lesional cells from 10 lepromatous leprosy patients injected intralesionally with recombinant interferon-gamma (rIFN-gamma). Clinically similar contralateral lesions injected with excipient served as controls. Lesional esterase-positive cells (suggestive of monocytes/macrophages) from(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of nondiabetic renal disease (NDRD) among type 2 diabetics varies widely depending on the populations being studied and the selection criteria. Also, for patients found to have NDRD different predicting factors have been identified by different studies. OBJECTIVES TO DETERMINE: (i) Frequency and spectrum of NDRD in type 2(More)
