PURPOSE To review the outcomes of 23-gauge transconjunctival vitrectomy in patients with postoperative endophthalmitis. METHODS Non-randomized, interventional case series of patients with postoperative endophthalmitis over a 1-year period. RESULTS 23-gauge transconjunctival vitrectomy was performed on 6 patients with a mean age of 67.7 years without(More)
A total of 954 subjects of both sexes from nine Mongoloid tribes of eastern India were investigated for the distribution of red cell glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) phenotypes by starch-gel electrophoresis. The incidence of Gd- was found to be 8% in the Khasi, 6% in the Nishi, 5% in Apatani and 3% in Adi. The small group of Bodo and the mixed group(More)
The structural gene and cDNA encoding cardiotoxin in Naja naja sputatrix have been cloned and characterized with a view to study the gene protein relationships and also to produce pure protein in large amounts. Using the polymerase chain reaction on the total RNA isolated from the venom glands, the structural gene (180 bp) has been synthesized and expressed(More)
Eleven commercially available alcohol and ethylene glycol derivatives were tested for their toxicity toward a problem organism in jet fuel, Cladosporium resinae. In the presence of glucose, 20% (vol/vol) ethylene glycol monomethyl ether prevented spore germination and mycelial growth, and 10% (vol/vol) 2-ethoxybutanol, 10% 2-isopropoxyethanol, 10%(More)
1. Studies in vitro have shown that rat diaphragm muscle is freely permeable to alpha- and beta-methyl d-xylosides and beta-methyl l-arabinoside but not to alpha- or beta-methyl d-glucoside or alpha-methyl d-mannoside. 2. No competition for entry between methyl pentosides and d-xylose, l-arabinose, d-glucose or 3-O-methyl-d-glucose could be demonstrated and(More)
The effect of nitrogen source on the aroma production of a strain of Trichoderma viride was investigated. The compound giving the culture its characteristic coconut-like aroma was identified as 6-pentyl-α-pyrone. Variation of the nitrogen source affected the quantity of the lactone produced but did not cause a significant difference in the aroma of the(More)
Biochemical characteristics of one non-deficient fast G6PD variant (GdSingapore) and six different deficient variants (three new, two Mahidol, one each of Indonesian and Mediterranean) were studied among the Malays of Singapore. The GdSingapore variant had normal enzyme activity (82%) and fast electrophoretic mobilities (140% in TEB buffer, 160% in(More)
