The study was conducted on 100 pregnant women in third trimester of uncomplicated pregnancy (Test group) and 100 age-matched non-pregnant women (Control group) in the age group of 25 to 35 years. Pulmonary function test parameters FVC, FEV1, PEFR and FEF25-75% recorded using Medspiror. The FEV1/FVC ratio was calculated. All parameters except FEV1/ FVC ratio(More)
In a review on sepsis by O’Brien et al, the discussants o not mention anything about the sepsis biomarkers, which ave a role in the early detection and serial follow-up of atients with sepsis. The diagnosis of sepsis in intensive care units is espeially challenging because it is frequently difficult to disinguish between systemic inflammation and systemic(More)
When guinea pigs were kept on a restricted vitamin C intake of only 0.5 mg daily, their serum ascorbic acid fell to 0.16 +/- 0.06 mg/d1 in 16 weeks as compared to 0.73 +/- 0.11 in control. This was associated with significant increase in liver cholesterol and triglycerides. When they were simultaneously challenged with a high cholesterol load, this fat(More)
Sixteen weeks of chronic vitamin C deficiency, induced in guinea pigs by restricted vitamin C intake, resulted in a marked increase in the serum total LDL- and VLDL- cholesterol, triglycerides and total lipids. HDL-cholesterol decreased resulting in a highly significant increase in LDL/HDL ratio. The results reconfirm that vitamin C deficiency causes(More)
AIM AND OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of 2% chlorhexidine, 2% sodium hypochlorite, 3% hydrogen peroxide on shear bond strength of composite resin to dentin using two-step and onestep self-etch bonding systems and to study the mode of failure of specimens under stereomicroscope. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty extracted sound human posterior teeth were(More)
AIM To evaluate the effect of direct and indirect technique, bevel placement, and aging on the fracture resistance of composite restorations bonded to sectioned incisal edges. MATERIALS AND METHODS Incisal thirds of 80 human maxillary incisors were sectioned. Four treatment groups of 20 teeth each were formed as follows: Direct composite with bevel and(More)
This study was conducted on 100 pregnant women in third trimester of uncomplicated pregnancy (cases) and 100 non pregnant women (control). Cases were further subdivided as per the gestational age into two groups of ≤ 34 weeks and > 34 weeks gestation. Pulmonary function test (PFT) parameters FVC, FEV1, PEFR and FEF(25-75%), FEV1/FVC. were evaluated with(More)
