Fibrocalculous pancreatic diabetes (FCPD) is a secondary cause of diabetes due to chronic pancreatitis. Since the N34S variant of the SPINK1 trypsin inhibitor gene has been found to partially account for genetic susceptibility to chronic pancreatitis, we used a family-based and case-control approach in two separate ethnic groups from the Indian(More)
This paper focuses on a comparative study of the modeling and simulation of the first CIGRÉ HVDC benchmark system using two simulation tools PSCAD/EMTDC and PSB/SIMULINK; an interface between them (PSCAD-SIMULINK) has also been implemented and used as a simulator. The CIGRÉ HVDC system and its controller has been carefully modeled in all three simulation(More)
The swamp type of the Asian water buffalo is assumed to have been domesticated by about 4000 years BP, following the introduction of rice cultivation. Previous localizations of the domestication site were based on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variation within China, accounting only for the maternal lineage. We carried out a comprehensive sampling of China,(More)
This paper presents a simple concept and design for a travel aid for the visually impaired. The proposed device uses ultrasonic signal in sensing and detecting an object (obstacles). The aid can inform the user about the distance of the detected obstacles by means of tactile vibrations. A prototype device called the intelligent walking stick (INSTICK) was(More)
Background and purpose: Geoinformatics technology retains an unprecedented trait of performing with a supersonic speed and precision in public health management whereas the existing disease surveillance systems in developing countries lack using this technology. This article aims to assess the feasibility of using geoinformatics technology in disaster(More)

INTRODUCTION Angiotensin-converting enzyme-1 (ACE-1) plays a major role in the renin-angiotensin system, a system that regulates blood pressure and water balance in mammals. Although ACE has been studied for more than four decades, use of new technologies continues to give new insights into the important role plays in mammalian physiology. ACE is a zinc(More)
