Present study was undertaken during a period of 6 months (September 2008-February 2009) to see an correlation of 24 hours urine protein estimation with random spot protein-creatinine (P:C) ratio among a diabetic patients. The study comprised of 144 patients aged 30-70 years, recruited from Kantipur hospital, Kathmandu. The 24-hr urine sample was collected,(More)
Gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) is often abused together with other 'club drugs', such as the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists ketamine and phencyclidine (PCP). We recently found that the NMDA antagonist dizocilpine markedly enhanced GHB-induced catalepsy in rats. The present studies explored the generality of this interaction. Different groups(More)
Estimating evapotranspiration using the complementary relationship can serve as a proxy to more sophisticated physically based approaches and can be used to better understand water and energy budget feedbacks. The authors investigated the existence of complementarity between actual evapotranspiration (ET) and potential ET (ETp) over natural vegetation in(More)
BACKGROUND The problem of uterine prolapse exists throughout Nepal and negatively affects women's health and quality of life (QOL). The Government of Nepal recognizes it as a priority problem. METHODS This study was conducted in eight districts to examine the status and problems of women who have undergone prolapse surgery. Qualitative and quantitative(More)

The aim of this study was to find the prevalence of MetS in hypertensive individuals by the available three different definitions from National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP), International diabetes Federation (IDF) and WHO and their association(More)
Dyslipidemia is one of the primary causes for cardio vascular disease (CVD) and development of myocardial infarction (MI) which often leads to coronary artery disease (CAD). The elevated level of total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), low-density lipoproteins-cholesterol (LDL-C), and lowered high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) are the(More)
2,2-Bis(4-isobutylphenyl)propanoyl-CoA and 2,2-bis(4-t-butylphenyl)propanoyl-CoA are rationally designed, gem-disubstituted substrate-product analogues that competitively inhibit α-methylacyl-coenzyme A racemase from Mycobacterium tuberculosis with Ki values of 16.9 ± 0.6 and 21 ± 4 μM, respectively, exceeding the enzyme's affinity for the substrate by(More)
Selection and Peer-review under responsibility of the Program Chairs. Abstract Active traffic management aims to dynamically manage congestion based on existing and predicted traffic conditions. A challenge in this is that it is not usually possible to process data in real-time and use the output in control algorithms or in traveler information systems. A(More)
