Exposure to UV radiation is a major risk factor for the development of malignant melanoma. DNA damage caused by UV radiation is thought to play a major role in carcinogenesis induction. Multiprotein pathways involved in repairing UV-DNA damage are the base excision, the nucleotide excision, and the homologous double-stranded DNA repair pathways. This study(More)
The purpose of this study is to assess the role of tumour necrosis factor (TNF) polymorphisms in the risk of developing bladder cancer and effect on tumour stage, grade and progression. In all, seven single-nucleotide polymorphisms in TNF were studied in 196 bladder cancer patients and 208 controls using a PCR-SSP genotyping technique. It was seen that(More)
The action of psoas major muscle as a primary flexor of the hip joint is undisputed. However it is also variably reported as being a medial and a lateral rotator of the femur at the hip joint. The psoas and iliacus muscles, along with their common insertion, were isolated by dissection in six adult cadaveric specimens. The action of psoas muscle was(More)
