This review focuses on research findings in the area of diagnosis and pathogenesis of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection over the last few decades. The information based on published literature provides an update on these two aspects of HCV. HCV infection, previously called blood transmitted non-A, non-B infection, is prevalent globally and poses a serious(More)
Axonal atrophy may reflect earlier and more reversible events in neurodegeneration and ageing than somatic atrophy. Innervation density by sympathetic fibres from the rat superior cervical ganglion (SCG) to the middle cerebral artery (MCA) decreases dramatically in old age, while that to the iris is largely unchanged. In situ hybridization was used in(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most aggressive and the commonest primary brain tumor with a tendency for local invasiveness. The pathways of neoplasia, invasion and inflammation are inextricably linked in cancer and aberrations in several regulatory pathways for these processes have been identified. Here we have studied the FAT1 (Homo sapiens FAT(More)
Hypoxia is a hallmark of solid tumors including glioblastoma (GBM). Its synergism with Notch signaling promotes progression in different cancers. However, Notch signaling exhibits pleiotropic roles and the existing literature lacks a comprehensive understanding of its perturbations under hypoxia in GBM with respect to all components of the pathway. We(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Viral hepatitis needs an earliest diagnosis for its proper and timely treatment. Although serodiagnosis of viral hepatitis is in regular practice, however, it has certain limitations and points to alternate procedures of diagnosis. Present study was designed to develop a single-step multiplex real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR)(More)
AIM To investigate the prevalence and genotype distribution of Torque teno virus (TTV) in patients with different liver diseases and chronic renal failure treated at a referral hospital in North India. METHODS Whereas prevalence of TTV was based on amplification of conserved region of ORF2 of TTV genome, the genotyping of TTV was carried out using(More)
Insulinomas are rare pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. The genetic causes underlying insulinoma are still being investigated. Recently, 3 independent studies reported a recurrent somatic mutation in YY1 gene (C>G; Thr372Arg) among insulinoma patients belonging to Chinese and Western Caucasian populations, which was found to increase insulin secretion by(More)
Hypoxia is a salient feature of most solid tumors and plays a central role in tumor progression owing to its multiple contributions to therapeutic resistance, metastasis, angiogenesis and stemness properties. Reports exist in literature about hypoxia increasing stemness characteristics and invasiveness potential of malignant cells. In order to delineate(More)
