We report here results of clinical trials on a birth control vaccine, consisting of a heterospecies dimer of the beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) associated noncovalently with the alpha subunit of ovine luteinizing hormone and conjugated to tetanus and diphtheria toxoids as carriers, that induces antibodies of high avidity (K(a)(More)
Two hundred patients requiring induction of labour were assigned a preinduction score according to Dhall's criteria and Bishop's criteria. A score of 9 or more (Dhall) and 6 or more (Bishop) had favourable outcomes with successful induction in more than 90% of patients and an induction delivery interval (IDI) of less than 12 hours. In multiparas a Dhall(More)
Acute renal failure of obstetric origin is common among North Indian patients and comprised 72 (22.1%) of 325 patients undergoing dialysis over an 11-year period.

A total of 900 consecutive newborns delivered at the Nehru Hospital, Chandigarh, India, over a period of 7 months were examined for presence of skin lesions within 48 hours of birth. Commonly observed skin lesions were Epstein pearls (88.7%), mongolian spots (62.2%), milia (34.9%), sebaceous hyperplasia (31.8%), salmon patches (28.4%), and erythema toxicum(More)
Surface-active material (SF) was isolated from human lung lavage fluid collected at autopsy employing differential and sucrose density gradient centrifugation. The isolated material showed well-defined electron microscopic structure, consisting of clearly preserved, closely packed vesicles with limiting membranes and inclusion bodies. It showed a very high(More)
In a prospective controlled trial 91 consecutive women with eclampsia were randomly allocated either to a magnesium sulphate and nifedipine regime or to a lytic cocktail and nifedipine group. The type and severity of disease, details of labour and delivery, and the maternal and perinatal outcomes and complications related to the 2 treatment regimens were(More)
Thirty-five adult female patients with bacillary positive leprosy were studied to determine its effect on menarche, menstrual cycle, fertility, and menopause. Endometrial biopsies studied in 26 patients showed no evidence of leprosy bacilli granuloma or tubercle bacilli on culture. Menstrual blood examined in six patients with bacillemia did not reveal(More)
The pattern of cervical dilatation during labour in 100 patients with previous lower segment caesarean section (LSCS) was determined in a prospective partographic study. Eighty-four subjects delivered successfully by vaginal route. The mean initial dilatation rate (IDR) and average dilatation rate (ADR) were 0.884 cm/hour and 1.255 cm/hour respectively. The(More)
The effects on carbohydrate and lipid metabolism in 24 healthy female subjects of the long-acting steroid contraceptives norethisterone oenanthate (200 mg) (11 subjects) and depo-medroxyprogesterone acetate (150 mg) (13 subjects) were studied. The subjects were between the ages of 18 and 25 years, with a history of normal menstrual periods. Pretreatment(More)
