Simultaneous hourly changes in serum PSA and PAP levels per twenty-four-hour period was studied in 19 urologic patients with no prostatic disease. Serum PSA was determined using Hybritech PSA-R Kits, and PAP was determined using EIA method. PSA and PAP serum levels varied independently from each other. PSA level showed no diurnal variations. The level(More)
Heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) is a predominant member of the HSP family of proteins, which play a variety of functions in the cells and are responsible for cytoprotection under stress conditions. The present study was characterized by HSP70 (orf) in buffalo (Buablus bubalis). Genomic DNA was isolated from lymphocytes and that was used for PCR amplification(More)
In 114 vasectomized men, 220 epididymides were grossly examined during vasovasostomy. Fullness, distention, turgidity, thickening, induration, and other gross changes of the epididymides, including the formation of cystic spermatic granuloma, or spermatocele, indicated inadequate removal of spermatozoa and testicular fluid from the sequestrated proximal(More)
BACKGROUND Heat shock proteins (Hsps) are evolutionary ancient and highly conserved molecular chaperons found in prokaryotes as well as eukaryotes. Hsp70 is a predominant member of Hsp family. Microbial Hsp70s (mHsp70s) have acquired special significance in immunity since they have been shown to be potent activators of the innate immune system and generate(More)
Brucellosis is a worldwide zoonosis and a significant cause of loss of health in human and animals. Conventionally, definitive diagnosis is done by isolation of brucellae which is time consuming, technically demanding and may be hazardous. The present study was aimed to develop PCR assay based on evolutionarily conserved outer membrane protein 22 gene for(More)
Variation in serum prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) level over a twenty-four-hour period was studied in 18 urologic patients with no prostatic disease. Hourly, twenty-four-hour serum PAP level was determined using Elisa method. Seven of 18 patients (38.8%) showed appreciable change with definite diurnal pattern. PAP level was highest in early AM hours and(More)
A prospective trial was done in 30 ureters in 21 patients using perfusion pressure flow studies (PPFS) and diuretic renography with washout technique (DRWT) in dilated bilharzial ureters in order to diagnose the presence or absence of obstruction and to compare the results. PPFS could not be done in 11 ureters due to technical problems. Three categories of(More)
Ghrelin influences immune system function and modulates the sympathetic nervous system; however, the contribution of ghrelin to neural-immune interactions is not well-established because the effect of ghrelin on splenic sympathetic nerve discharge (SND) is not known. This study tested the hypothesis that central ghrelin administration would inhibit splenic(More)
