To assess the impact of gait training on a treadmill with body weight support, regarding temporospatial parameters and quality of life. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twelve patients of both sexes were(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the safety and efficacy of a transdermal nanostructured formulation of progesterone (10%) combined with estriol (0.1%) + estradiol (0.25%) for relieving postmenopausal symptoms.

In experiments at the Radda Barnen Research Laboratories of the SLR & TC Karigiri, the mouse footpad test was demonstrated to detect DDS-resistant M.leprae even if as few as 0.1% (1 in 1000) of the M. leprae tested were DDS-resistant. The mouse footpad test appears to be sensitive to minute proportions of drug-resistant bacilli in samples of M. leprae(More)
The mouse foot pad test has not previously been used quantitatively to discriminate between samples of Mycobacterium leprae with differing proportions of drug-resistant M. leprae. The "drug-resistant proportion test" is a simple modification of the routine mouse foot pad test. It is demonstrated to distinguish between samples of M. leprae with a tenfold(More)
At the Schieffelin Leprosy Research and Training Centre, Karagiri, India, 148 lepromatous (LL) and borderline lepromatous (BL) leprosy patients registered for treatment in the years 1971 to 1973 were found to respond as well to dapsone (DDS) monotherapy as 391 LL and BL patients registered in 1964 to 1966, as indicated by clearance of Mycobacterium leprae(More)
