The deposition of aggregates of human islet amyloid peptide (hIAPP) has been correlated with the death of insulin-producing beta (β) cells in type II diabetes mellitus. The actual molecular mechanism of cell death remains unknown; however, it has been postulated that the process of aggregation and amyloid fibril growth from monomeric hIAPP is closely(More)
The liver is affected in up 50 to 75% of compromised hosts with disseminated Candida albicans infection who come to autopsy. The antemortem diagnosis of hepatic candidiasis is rarely made. Blood cultures are negative in approximately 50% of cases, and biochemical parameters of hepatic injury may be of nonspecific value. Additionally, the more commonly seen(More)
OBJECTIVE Sporadic cases of drug-induced haemolytic anaemia due to glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency in patients belonging to Vataliya Prajapati community prompted us to study the prevalence of G6PD deficiency in the community. METHODS Screening for G6PD deficiency was carried out using the dichlorophenol-indophenol (DPIP) dye(More)
BACKGROUND The prognostic value of peak cardiac troponin (cTn) in different types of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) under the universal clinical classification is unknown. HYPOTHESIS We tested the hypothesis that the prognostic value of cTn varies with its peak level and type of AMI. METHODS We studied 345 consecutive patients with AMI with mean(More)
Cloud computing is a novel pattern of computing where resources are provisioned on demand over the Internet. Being pay-as-you-go model, Cloud users lease the required resources and pay for their usage. Services offered by Cloud are broadly divided into three categories: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and(More)
50 patients (45 males + 5 females) suffering from acute uncomplicated attack of Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) malaria were treated with 1500 mg of halofantrine divided in three doses of 500 mg each given at an interval of 6 h. Results showed there were no primary treatment failures. Average Parasite Clearance Time (av. PCT) was 51.12 h and average Fever(More)
Hepatic portal venous gas (HPVG) is a rare disease entity. It is an ominous finding, usually, associated with intraabdominal ischemic necrosis. It frequently requires emergent surgical intervention. Herein, we present a case of a patient who complained of intense abdominal pain, with radiographic findings of HPVG as a result of cocaine-induced vascular(More)
Bacterial pericarditis is a rapidly progressive and highly fatal infection, and is often diagnosed postmortem in half of the cases. Even with drainage and antibiotics, the mortality rate is high. Gram-positive cocci, specifically Streptococcus penumoniae, have been the most common cause of bacterial pericarditis with a preceding primary site of infection.(More)
Partial discharge (PD) is the dissipation of energy caused by localized breakdown of insulation. Power transformers are one of the most important equipment in the electrical network. Insulation degradation of transformer is frequency linked to partial discharge. If this problem is not detected, then the strength and frequency of PD may increases. So the PD(More)
