BACKGROUND We tested the hypothesis that the fetal-placental relationship scales allometrically and identified modifying factors of that relationship. MATERIALS AND METHODS Among women delivering after 34 weeks but prior to 43 weeks' gestation, 24,601 participants in the Collaborative Perinatal Project (CPP) had complete data for placental gross(More)
India is home to the world's second largest population. Rheumatology is an emerging specialty in India. We reviewed organization, epidemiology and training facilities for Rheumatology in India. Also, we also looked at publications in the field of rheumatology from India from over the past six years using Scopus and Medline databases. Despite rheumatologic(More)
Introduction. Th17, γδT, NK, and NKT cells in peripheral blood and serum IL-17 and IL-23 in Takayasu arteritis (TA) were measured and correlated with disease activity. Methods. Th17 (anti-CD3APC, CD4PECy7, and IL-17PE), NKT, NK (anti-CD3APC, CD56FITC), and γδT (anti-CD3FITC and γδTCRAPC) cells were enumerated by flow cytometry in peripheral blood of 30(More)
T he down-scaling trend of complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) field effect transistor (FET) will continue as it decreases the cost per function in a chip, decreases power consumption, and increases performance. To reduce power consumption from gate oxide leakage, Intel Corporation has successfully introduced high k dielectrics for 45 nm CMOS(More)
which permits unrestricted non-commercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Dear Editor-in-Chief, We read with great interest the articles on predatory practices by Beall (1) and Gasparyan et al. (2). As editors and editorial board members of the Indian Journal of Rheumatology, which is the(More)
A young male was referred to us for evaluation of fever of unknown origin (FUO). He had history of recurrent painful oral ulcers for one year and moderate to high grade fever, pustulopapular rash, and recurrent genital ulcers for 6 months and hemoptysis for 3 days. He was detected to have intracardiac thrombi and pulmonary arterial thrombosis along with(More)
Leprosy is a disease typically found in the tropics. Patients with leprosy can have varying presentation with constitutional symptoms, joint pains, skin nodules, and rarely a vasculitis-like picture with skin ulcers and neuropathy. We present a young lady who presented with the rare manifestation of skin infarcts mimicking cutaneous vasculitis, diagnosed on(More)
In today's world, life without electronics is unthinkable. It has been studied that for electronic devices to provide better efficiency and reliability in terms of speed, power-loss and cost, the fundamental component of each Integrated Circuit (IC) chip, namely the MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor) needs to be reduced or 'scaled'(More)
