This study was conducted to find normative values for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in 1200 cord blood samples of term babies whose mothers were not on any thyroid medications. TSH was estimated within 24 hrs by enzyme immunoassay. A full thyroid profile, viz, T3, T4, TSH, fT3 and fT4 was done at 7-10 days of age in all babies with cord TSH >20 mIU/L.(More)
The aim of this work was to study the effect of different organic wastes, viz. cow dung, grass, aquatic weeds and municipal solid waste with lime and microbial inoculants on chemical and biochemical properties of vermicompost. Cow dung was the best substrate for vermicomposting. Application of lime (5 g/kg) and inoculation of microorganisms increased the(More)
OBJECTIVE The suffering of children with asthma as a persistent illness is present in approximately 10% of the total population. The prevalent treatment regimens available has been the inhaled coticosteroids and short acting bronchodialators. Though the therapies are rational and well accepted but at the cost of side effects on chronic use. The changing(More)
In this experiment, three microbial strains were inoculated in two different organic wastes to study their effect on the humic acids content, acid phosphatase activity and microbial properties of the final stabilized products. Pyrophosphate extract of vermicomposts were analyzed through polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis to study the nature of a isozymes in(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the efficacy and tolerability of montelukast as monotherapy in the treatment of mild persistent bronchial asthma. DESIGN Open, non-comparative, prospective, 12-month study. SETTING Asthma clinic in urban multi-speciality trust hospital. METHODS Children (age 3-11 yrs) with mild persistent asthma, not on any prophylactic drugs were(More)
This work describes and evaluates a technique for determining the dielectric properties of carbon-black filled Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) rubber and presents results on the studies of the effect of frequency on the permittivity and microwave conductivity using resonant cavity perturbation method. The measurements are performed with the aid of a Network(More)
We have examined the polymer-surfactant interaction in mixed solutions of the cationic surfactants, i.e., dodecyltrimethylammonium chloride, dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide, tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide, hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide, tetradecyltriphenylphosphonium bromide, and tetradecylpyridinium bromide and a semiflexible anionic(More)
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) may be associated with tuberculosis infection. DVT in tuberculosis (TB) is implicated to the release of inflammatory cytokines, decrease synthesis of anti-coagulant proteins and increased fibrinogen levels. Drugs may also predispose to the hyper-coaguability. DVT may correlate with the severity of mycobacterium infection. We(More)
