There is evidence of derangement of oxidant and antioxidant defense systems in depression. The present study examined the effects of fluoxetine and citalopram, standard selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors, on lipid peroxidation, superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity and ascorbic acid concentrations. For this, a prospective open-labeled, randomized design(More)
Several investigators implicated role of free radical-mediated pathology in schizophrenia. No study has ever examined the effect of vitamin C with atypical antipsychotics in the treatment of schizophrenia. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of oral vitamin C with atypical antipsychotics on serum malondialdehyde (MDA), plasma ascorbic acid(More)
Statistical methods are important to draw valid conclusions from the obtained data. This article provides background information related to fundamental methods and techniques in biostatistics for the use of postgraduate students. Main focus is given to types of data, measurement of central variations and basic tests, which are useful for analysis of(More)
There is evidence to suggest the derangement of the oxidant and antioxidant defense system in schizophrenia. The present study examined the effect of atypical antipsychotics on lipid peroxidation, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and ascorbic acid. For this purpose, a prospective, open-label, 8-week study design was utilized. Serum SOD, serum malondialdehyde(More)
Derangement of antioxidant levels in major depressive disorder had been correlated with oxidative damage. The effect of Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors on endogenous antioxidant uric acid levels in major depressive disorder has never been examined. This was a prospective; open labeled, parallel, 12 weeks study, in which serum uric acid levels and(More)
OBJECTIVES Health-related quality of life (QOL) is an important outcome in epilepsy treatment. Very few studies have been carried out on the quality of life in epilepsy (QOLIE-31) in India. The present study aimed to determine the level of health-related QOLIE-31 in patients of epilepsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a cross-sectional,(More)
Oxidative stress resulting from an imbalance between pro-oxidants and anti-oxidants seems to play an important role in human breast carcinogenesis. There are conflicting reports regarding the tissue levels of malondialdehyde (MDA), ascorbic acid and superoxide dismutase (SOD) in breast cancer patients whereas few blood values have been reported. The present(More)
Serum superoxide dismutase, plasma ascorbic acid and lipid peroxidation in H. pylori gastritis and gastric cancer patients were compared with values for age matched healthy subjects. Serum superoxide dismutase and serum malondialdehyde were analyzed spectrophotometrically whereas plasma ascorbic acid was determined by colorimetric method. Significant(More)
BACKGROUND Urticaria is a distressing condition associated with diverse clinical presentations. Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CsU) is characterized by wheals and angioedema. Its treatment requires an algorithmic approach to identify the optimum medication. OBJECTIVES Cetirizine is commonly used in the treatment of urticaria. Rupatadine is a selective(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare efficacy, safety and cost-effectiveness of rupatadine and olopatadine in patients of chronic spontaneous urticaria. MATERIALS AND METHODS A 6-week, single-centered, randomized, double blind, parallel group comparative clinical study was conducted on patients with chronic spontaneous urticaria. Following inclusion and exclusion(More)
