Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a well-recognized model for the study of vertebrate developmental genetics, yet at the same time little is known about the transcriptional events that underlie zebrafish embryogenesis. Here we have employed microarray analysis to study the temporal activity of developmentally regulated genes during zebrafish embryogenesis.(More)
BACKGROUND The molecular basis of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus (CoV) induced pathology is still largely unclear. Many SARS patients suffer respiratory distress brought on by interstitial infiltration and frequently show peripheral blood lymphopenia and occasional leucopenia. One possible cause of this could be interstitial(More)
3 Dimensional Conformal Radiotherapy (3D-CRT) planning software helps in displaying the 3D dose distribution at different levels in the planned target volume (PTV). Physical or dynamic wedges are commonly applied to obtain homogeneous dose distribution in the PTV. Despite all these planning efforts, there are about 10% increased dose hot spots encountered(More)
Need for emphasizing teaching Psychiatry to undergraduate Medical students highlighted. Specific recommendations put forward by different bodies and groups reviewed. A questionnaire on the pattern of teaching Psychiatry was circulated among fifty undergraduate Medical students. Analysis of results revealed students in general are not satisfied with the(More)

AIM To understand the profile of suicide completers and find out ways of dealing with it. METHODS Fifty suicide cases were analysed. Using a semi-structured, self-designed questionnaire, the family, friends and relatives of(More)
The objective of this study was to conduct an audit on QA aspects of treatment delivery by the verification of the treatment fields' position on different days to document the efficiency of immobilization methods and reproducibility of treatment. A retrospective study was carried out on 60 patients, each 20 treated for head and neck, breast, and pelvic(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the impact of dose rate on accuracy of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) plan delivery by comparing the gamma agreement between the calculated and measured portal doses by pretreatment quality assurance (QA) using electronic portal imaging device dosimetry and creating a workflow for the pretreatment IMRT QA(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Renal failure patients show significant impairment on measures of attention and memory, and consistently perform significantly better on neuropsychological measures of memory and attention, approximately 24 hours after hemodialysis treatment. The objectives are to determine the cognitive dysfunction in patients with renal failure(More)
BACKGROUND Cognitive impairment is gaining recognition as sequelae of heart failure and the ICCU environment adds to their worsening symptoms. OBJECTIVES To determine cognitive dysfunctions in patients with heart disease admitted in intensive cardiac care unit (ICCU) and to compare it with patients admitted in general medical wards with heart disease.
