Relational databases ruled the Information Technology (IT) industry for almost 40 years. But last few years have seen sea changes in the way IT is being used and viewed. Stand alone applications have been replaced with web-based applications, dedicated servers with multiple distributed servers and dedicated storage with network storage. Cloud computing has(More)
AIM   Increased intestinal permeability (IP) has been implicated as an important factor for bacterial translocation (BT), leading to bacteremia and endotoxemia, resulting in various septic complications, variceal bleeding (VB), hepatic encephalopathy (HE), hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) and death in patients with liver cirrhosis (LC). This study was planned to(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of oral glutamine (GL) supplementation on gut permeability and endotoxemia (surrogate end point) in patients with severe acute pancreatitis. METHODS In a randomized controlled trial, patients were randomized to be given placebo or GL for 7 days. The primary outcome measures include the effect on(More)
Riluzole is the only available drug for motor neuron diseases quite well-known for its neuroprotective activity. But its poor aqueous solubility, short half-life with some side-effects at higher concentration poses a limitation to its use as a therapeutic agent. The present study was performed to investigate the therapeutic potential of nanoriluzole (NR),(More)
BACKGROUND Gold nanorods show a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) band at the near infra-red (NIR) region which enables them to produce heat on irradiation with a NIR laser. As a result of this, gold nanorods have the potential to be used as thermal therapeutic agents for selective damage to cancer cells, bacterial cells, viruses, and DNA. METHODS Gold(More)
BACKGROUND Leishmaniasis is an endemic disease having a wide spectrum ranging from visceral, cutaneous and mucocutaneous forms caused by unicellular, obligate intracellular parasites of the monocyte-macrophage system. The aim of the present study was to develop an effective, nontoxic and biodegradable polymeric drug-delivery system encapsulating curcumin in(More)
INTRODUCTION: Advances in intraocular lens (IOL) design and surgical techniques have significantly improved the visual outcomes of cataract surgery. Traditional monofocal IOLs provide excellent visual acuity (VA). However, they have a fixed focal distance and limited depth of focus. Patients with monofocal IOLs lose most of their accommodation and usually(More)
Cloud Computing (CC) is considered a constructive technology for read-intensive analytical applications rather than write-intensive transactional applications. Deploying transactional applications in the Cloud is not considered safe due to requirement of stringent ACID guarantees. These rules can be enforced in Cloud using middleware tools like CloudTran(More)
