UNLABELLED Identification of individuals is a challenging task in forensic odontology. In circumstances where identification of an individual by fingerprint or dental record comparison is difficult, the palatal rugae may be considered as an alternative source. Palatal rugae have been shown to be highly individualistic and it maintains consistency in shape(More)
To increase the capacity of optical communication system, Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) is a good method to be implemented. The major type of nonlinearity in the DWDM systems is Four Wave Mixing (FWM). In this paper, the suppression of FWM is discussed, in which two methods are combined. A comparison is done for both fiber with and without(More)
AIMS Familial clustering of diabetic nephropathy in patients with Type 2 diabetes suggests that inherited factors predispose to diabetic nephropathy, but the nature of these factors is uncertain. The aim of the study was to compare the prevalence of known risk factors for nephropathy in non-diabetic offspring of Type 2 diabetic patients with and without(More)
Ameloblastic carcinoma is a rare lesion of odontogenic origin. It is defined as a malignant epithelial odontogenic tumor that histologically has retained the features of ameloblastic differentiation and also exhibits cytologic features of malignancy, like atypia and mitotic activity. Although this lesion represents a separate entity, differentiating it from(More)

MATERIALS AND METHODS Data collected from 153 gingival biopsies referred to the Department of Oral Pathology, Yenepoya Dental College in Mangalore, Karnataka state,(More)
BACKGROUND Although numerous investigators have studied the pattern of keratin expression in different odontogenic cysts, the results have been variable. AIM The present study was conducted to determine the pattern of expression of cytokeratin 19 (CK 19) in the epithelial lining of odontogenic keratocysts and dentigerous cysts. MATERIALS AND METHODS The(More)
Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) is a widely used multiple access technique in cellular and military communication systems. In Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) communications, a Pseudo Noise (PN) spreading code is typically applied to the data samples prior to transmission. Synchronization of this unique code with the incoming data samples forms a(More)
β -Thalassaemia [thalassaemia major] causes severe transfusion dependent anemia. In the heterozygous state, the β Thalassaemia trait [thalassaemia minor] causes mild to moderate microcytic anemia. Our study comprised of hundred β Thalassaemia major patients undergoing a minimum of 15 transfusions and hundred normal individuals. Both the control and study(More)
