INTRODUCTION The evidence based data to guide management in patients of benzodiazepine refractory status epilepticus (SE) is still lacking. We conducted a randomized study to evaluate the comparative effect of intravenous (IV) phenytoin and intravenous valproate (IV VA) in patients of benzodiazepine refractory SE. BACKGROUND AND METHODS Hundred, age and(More)
Psoriasis is a genetic predisposition with T-cell mediated autoimmune inflammatory skin disorder, characterized by cutaneous inflammation, increased epidermal proliferation, hyperkeratosis, angiogenesis, and abnormal keratinization that affects up to 2 - 3% of the population worldwide. Common therapies that are used for the treatment of psoriasis include(More)
A potent immunomodulatory role of Vitamin D in both innate and adaptive immunity has recently been appreciated. In allergic asthma, activation of NF-кB induces transcription of various cytokines and chemokines involved in allergic airway inflammation. The nuclear import of activated NF-кB p50/RelA subunit is dependent on importin α3 (KPNA4) and importin α4(More)
The aim of the present study was to study the epidemiological and clinical profile of patients attending an exclusive pediatric Emergency Department (ED). Data was retrieved from records of the patients seen over a 6-year period from 1995 to 2000. Descriptive analysis was done to define demographic and clinical details, and monthly admission rates and(More)
OBJECTIVE Alopecia is a common disorder affecting more than half of the population worldwide. Androgenetic alopecia, the most common type, affects 50% of males over the age of 40 and 75% of females over 65. Only two drugs have been approved so far (minoxidil and finasteride) and hair transplant is the other treatment alternative. This review surveys the(More)
Post-burn pruritis is a very distressing symptom having a reported incidence between 80 and 100%. The mainstay of management of post-burn itch has been with antihistaminics and emollients but the treatment is ineffective in a very large percentage of patients. With the recognition of a distinct itch specific neuronal pathway, which has a complex interaction(More)
This paper reports experimental and modeling investigations of thermal methane reforming chemistry within porous Ni–YSZ anode materials. Because the reforming chemistry is difficult to observe directly in an operating fuel cell, a specially designed experiment is developed. In the experiment a 0.75 mm-thick anode is sandwiched between two small co-flowing(More)
Acetaminophen has a reasonable safety profile when consumed in therapeutic doses. However, it could induce hepatotoxicity and even acute liver failure when taken at an overdose. Pioglitazone, PPARγ ligand, is clinically tested and used in treatment of diabetes. PPARγ is a key nuclear hormone receptor of lipid metabolisms and regulates several gene(More)
We report the first measurement of proper motions in the SN 1006 remnant (G327.6+14.6) based entirely on digital images. CCD images from three epochs spanning a period of 11 yr are used: 1987 from Las Campanas and 1991 and 1998 from Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory. The filaments in SN 1006 are nonradiative, appearing only in the Balmer lines of(More)
Natural antioxidant products are increasingly being used to treat various pathological liver injuries considering the role of oxidative stress in their pathogenesis. Auricularia polytricha has been used as food or medicine due to its antioxidant activity. The aim of the study was to evaluate the protective effect of the aqueous extract of the fruiting(More)
