METHODS Two successive coronary risk factor surveys were performed in randomly selected individuals. In the first study (in 1995) 2212 subjects (1415 men, 797 women) and in the second (in(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence and determinants of coronary heart disease (CHD) have been inadequately studied in rural areas of developing countries. METHODS Entire communities were surveyed in randomly selected villages in Rajasthan, India. A physician-administered questionnaire, physical examination, and electrocardiogram (ECG) were performed on 3148 adults(More)
BACKGROUND Until now, a normal reference range for glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in adult Indian potential kidney donors has not been determined and values from a western population are being used as reference. AIM To determine the reference range of GFR in healthy adult Indian potential kidney donors. BASIC PROCEDURES GFR was measured in 610 (250(More)
BACKGROUND To assess the plaque and salivary pH changes at different time intervals in vivo after consumption of a carbonated beverage modified with sodium fluoride and calcium phosphate. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four subjects aged 18-25 years were recruited and randomly assigned to three groups (group A, original drink Sprite; group B, Sprite with(More)
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to retrospectively correlate FDG uptake in primary Ewing sarcoma family of tumors (ESFT) with tumor behavior, and to evaluate whether FDG PET can be used to predict response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) in this patient group. METHODS Out of the total 54 patients of recently diagnosed ESFT who underwent(More)
The MADS-box transcription factors play essential roles in various processes of plant growth and development. In the present study, phylogenetic analysis of 142 apple MADS-box proteins with that of other dicotyledonous species identified six putative Dormancy-Associated MADS-box (DAM) and four putative Flowering Locus C-like (FLC-like) proteins. In order to(More)
3148 persons (1982 males and 1166 females) aged more than 20 years in a cluster of three villages were examined. The overall prevalence of smoking was 51% in males (n = 1006) and 5% in females (n = 54). Among male smokers there were 26% light smokers (< or = 5 bidis/day), 51% moderate smokers (6-20/day) and 17% heavy smokers (> 20 day) and in females there(More)
To determine the prevalence of coronary risk factors and coronary heart disease (CHD) in rural Rajasthan, 1150 randomly selected individuals in a cluster of villages in central Rajasthan have been studied. These included 805 men and 345 women. The prevalence of various coronary risk factors in the whole group were: Smoking 488 (42.4%); Diabetes (history):(More)
The prevalence of mitral valve prolapse (MVP) appears to be age related, MVP being commoner in children as compared to adults. This suggests that asymptomatic MVP may be most frequent in children who are very young. In this study, to better define the prevalence of MVP in young children, we used two dimensional echocardiography and prospectively surveyed(More)
