The study of consanguineous marriage is an efficient way to elucidate the genetic structure of human populations. Such matings give an opportunity for recessive genes to manifest themselves by becoming homozygous. The present attempt examines the effects of parental consanguinity on various anthropometric measurements among the Sheikh Sunni Muslim boys of… (More)
Background. This study was aimed at comparing angiogenesis, seen as microvessel density (MVD) in subtypes of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Methods.

The author examines the process of urbanization in Delhi, India's National Capital Region. An urban plan for the metropolitan area that emphasizes decentralization is assessed, and the spatial distribution of the population is described. The central city, suburban areas, and transportation and communication systems that link them are also considered.
Groundwater depletion has been widely studied in northwest India, but water quality concerns are still poorly constrained. In this study, we explore the hydrochemistry of the top 160m of the aquifer system, through detailed field studies in the Bist-Doab region, considering both anthropogenic and geogenic controls. A detailed comparison is made between… (More)
Thrombocytopenia may result from hypoproliferation in marrow, or peripheral destruction of platelets. Distinction between these two categories is usually made by bone marrow examination. Some studies in literature hint that platelet volume indices are differentially altered in various causes of thrombocytopenia. The present study was aimed at investigating… (More)
This paper questions the frequently posed thesis of India being overurbanized. The diverse connotations of the term "overurbanization" have been taken into account and tested against the Indian reality. It is concluded that on a net balance of positive and negative effects emanating from urbanization, there is no reason to believe that India is urbanized… (More)
