This study was planned to observe the clinical and radiological course of single small enhancing CT lesions in Indian patients presenting with new-onset-seizures. In this study, 75 patients with new-onset seizures and a single enhancing CT lesion were prospectively followed up for 1 year. All patients fulfilled the criteria of cysticercus granuloma. The(More)
Environmental factors are implicated in aging as well as genetic predisposition-induced Parkinson’s disease (PD) pathogenesis. Wrongdoers increase oxidative stress and nitrosative burden, which eventually degenerate the nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. Inhibition of the expression of nitric oxide synthase (NOS), an enzyme responsible for nitric oxide(More)
Two novel methods are proposed for robust segmentation of pulmonary nodules in CT images. The proposed solutions locate and segment a nodule in a semi-automatic fashion with a marker indicating the target. The solutions are motivated for handling the difficulty to segment juxtapleural, or wall-attached, nodules by using only local information without a(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the role of intravenous methyl prednisolone in patients with solitary cysticercus granuloma with new-onset seizures. METHODS In this open-label, randomized, prospective, follow-up study, 52 patients with new-onset seizures and a single enhancing CT lesion of cysticercus were randomly divided in two groups to receive either intravenous(More)
To identify Binteresting[ images, human observers view 10 images/sec, while electroencephalography (EEG) signals from the observers own brains are automatically decoded. ABSTRACT | Our society's information technology advancements have resulted in the increasingly problematic issue of information overloadVi.e., we have more access to information than we can(More)
INTRODUCTION Diffusion tensor tractography (DTT) is a newer magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique that helps in evaluation of white matter. Presurgical planning with tractography may be valuable for evaluation of white matter tracts and their relationship with epileptogenic focus and for evaluation of cortical fibres around the epileptogenic zone.

We report an unusual case of neurobrucellosis who presented with headache, vision loss, confusional state, retrobulbar neuritis and left hemiparesis. Neuroimaging studies showed features of ischemic infarct and white matter abnormalities. Pulmonary involvement in form of lobar pneumonia of left basal lobe was another unusual manifestation. Diagnosis was(More)
Using culture filtrate Ag-specific mAbs generated from mycobacteria-infected H-2b haplotype mice, we have previously identified three genes in the Mycobacterium tuberculosis genome, encoding proteins homologous to the periplasmic ATP-binding cassette phosphate-binding receptor PstS of the phosphate-specific transport system of E. coli. To define the(More)
Egress of Plasmodium falciparum merozoites from host erythrocytes is a critical step in multiplication of blood-stage parasites. A cascade of proteolytic events plays a major role in degradation of membranes leading to egress of merozoites. However, the signals that regulate the temporal activation and/or secretion of proteases upon maturation of merozoites(More)
