No large study from India has addressed the association of risk variables with coronary artery disease (CAD) in angiographically proved cases. In this study, we analyzed the association of anthropometric variables, lipoproteins, and coagulation parameters with CAD in those cases proved by coronary angiography. A cross-sectional study of 447 men > or = 25(More)
AIMS To evaluate the association of plasma proinsulin and insulin resistance (IR) with coronary artery disease (CAD) in non-diabetic subjects. METHODS In this case control study, 41 normoglycaemic men with angiographic evidence of CAD were compared with 41 control men matched for age and glycaemia and with no history or evidence of cardiac diseases.(More)
OBJECTIVES An association of Apolipoprotein B (Apo B) with coronary artery disease (CAD) independent of LDL cholesterol (LDLc) concentrations has been reported in white population. This analysis was taken up to study whether the higher CAD risk in Asian Indians with diabetes could be explained by possible alterations in Apo B and Apolipoprotein A1 (Apo A1)(More)
This paper gives a software framework for positioning multiple mobile robots in a circular formation. The robots are initially arbitrarily placed on a 2D plane. The definition of the circle formed by these robots is governed by two strict rules (a) all robots should be positioned on the circle circumference (b) all robots should be uniformly placed on(More)
Efficiency of energy conversion for electro-osmosis and streaming potential and the degree of coupling of acids across urinary bladder membranes of goat have been computed using non-equilibrium thermodynamic theory. The energy conversion maxima and degree of coupling for acids responsible for the formation of urinary calculi are found to be much low as(More)
Electrokinetic studies namely hydrodynamic permeability, electroosmotic permeability and streaming potential measurements of aqueous solutions of oxalic acid and urea have been made across urinary bladder membranes of goat. Energy conversion maxima and degree of coupling for these permeants have computed. It has been found that these values increase with(More)
Multi-Agent systems enable us to simulate swarm behaviour wherein intelligence emerges from the collective instead of the individual. The problem of terrain coverage forms a prominent field of research in multi-agent systems with wide-ranging real-life applications. We propose a new multi-agent framework called the Scout-Explorer framework which utilizes(More)
Electrokinetic studies of aqueous solutions of urea, glucose, urea-glucose mixture (urea concentration increasing and glucose fixed) and glucose-urea mixture (glucose concentration increasing and urea concentration fixed) have been carried out across urinary bladder membranes of goat. Results have been analysed using methodology of non-equilibrium(More)
