The objective of the investigation was to test the efficacy of the simplest mechanical method of midtrimester pregnancy termination, i.e., extraamniotic rubber catheters without use of any drugs, because medical disorders complicating pregnancy were also included in the present series. The pregnancy was terminated in midtrimester in 200 patients by(More)
BACKGROUND Neonatal morbidity due to neonatal jaundice is an alarming situation, which needs to be detected and managed at the earliest possible. Many different etiologies come into play together, and at times, it is difficult to isolate the cause of neonatal jaundice. Certain diagnostic tests such as hemoglobin levels, reticulocyte count, leukocyte count,(More)
Designing nanostructures of desired morphology calls for development of new synthetic protocols to stimulate structural alterations in templates, modulating the architecture of nano-metric structures. The present study is an endeavor to investigate structural modifications in reverse micellar nanotemplates of a cationic surfactant system,(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular diseases constitute one class of common contributors to morbidity and mortality worldwide. Prevalence of overweight and obesity has dramatically increased in developing countries and is related to cardiovascular risk factors. Anthropometric parameters have the advantages in daily clinical practice of being a simple to measure tool(More)
The energetics and models of COX-2 complexed with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) having different degrees of selectivity for two isoforms of COX (COX-2 and COX-1) have been studied using computer modelling approach. The models are obtained for complexes of NS398 (NS), a selective COX-2 inhibitor; indoprofen (Ind), a non-selective inhibitor;(More)
BACKGROUND Recent burden on health care organization due to acute pain and simultaneous rise in the depression cases have been ringing alarms among the medical professionals. AIMS This study was taken up with a hypothesis that acute pain and depression are inter-linked and any acute painful condition leads to some behavioural and psycho-somatic effects(More)
