Vaccination against influenza and Streptococcus pneumoniae is recommended for elderly and immunocompromised individuals. However, there is little information concerning the efficacy of vaccination in specific groups of patients. In this study, 52 patients underwent vaccination against influenza, S. pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) as they(More)
We report a case where life threatening gram negative sepsis developed in a patient with CLL in association with post chemotherapy neutropenia on three occasions. Bacterial typhlitis or neutropenic enterocolitis, which is a well described entity of bowel necrosis seen in immunosuppressed patients, was demonstrated at colonoscopy and was the probable portal(More)
Summary form only given. A description is given of how to build a modular neural network system for selecting a category that fits an instance of a complex problem. The problems to which the method applies defy attempts at accurate categorization via multilayer single neural networks, yet have structures that yield to the sequential application of three(More)
Melanoma is one of the deadliest cancer to be treated as well to detect in initial phase. Here we take the skin lesion by ROI and then we take out features of it then it needs to be segmented whether the particular image is cancerous or not. If it is cancerous then classify the extracted features and discuss about type of stages. A novel 3D reconstruction(More)
The remote sensing image technology is growing for the satellite communications. Due to huge size of the satellite image data, there is an overhead in terms of storage capacity, power consumption for the transmission so this is the major challenge in this field. To overcome these issues in this work we have proposed lifting scheme based image compression.(More)
Using a limiting dilution assay the frequency of long-term culture-initiating cells (LTC-IC) in the apheresis products following mobilization by granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSP) with or without chemotherapy from 14 normal donors (ND) for allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, 16 patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and 15 patients with acute(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the incidence of elective cesarean deliveries at term and to correlate their neonatal outcomes at different gestational ages (37(0/7)-40(6/7)). METHODS Outcomes including the rate of NICU admissions, usage of ventilator/CPAP, and other morbidities were analysed and compared with the gestational age during the study period from January(More)
The pattern of emergence of multipotential (CFU-A) and committed (CFU-GM and BFU-E) progenitor cells in peripheral blood has been examined in patients with Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Mobilization protocols used chemotherapy with or without granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (n=8 and n=5, respectively). In all patients, the numbers of(More)
