BACKGROUND The IgM capture ELISA has been the most widely used diagnostic method for Japanese encephalitis. However, the lack of availability of validated commercial kits as well as the short shelf life of the kit reagents has limited the use of this technique to very few centres in Asia. OBJECTIVES Development and evaluation of a rapid IgM capture ELISA(More)
The study was undertaken to determine the copper content in different human cataractous lenses. The level of copper increased with increasing age in nuclear brunescence and mixed cataractous lens and a low amount of copper was observed in the posterior subcapsular cataractous lens with increasing age. Cataractous lenses of females have greater amounts of(More)
Chromosomal aberrations, sister-chromatid exchanges and mitotic indices were observed in human peripheral leukocytes, treated with four different concentrations of malathion (0.02, 0.2, 2 and 20 micrograms/ml), an organophosphate pesticide, added to the culture medium at 0, 24 and 48 h after culture initiation. These cultures showed a dose-dependent(More)
The study was undertaken to determine the different concentrations of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) in anterior subcapsular and mixed cataractous lenses. In both types of cataractous lenses an increased concentration of G-6-PD was observed in 41-50 year age groups and a lower concentration of G-6-PD was noted in 61 year and above age groups.(More)
Histopathological effects of sublethal doses of monocrotophos on the gills have been studied by exposing the fish for a period ranging from ten to twenty days. The extent of damage to gills was dependent on the dose and duration of exposure. Histopathological changes in the gills observed were characterized primarily by hemorrhage in the primary and(More)
The authors present a review of seven patients (eight joints) with temporomandibular ankylosis treated between 2007 and 2008. The aim of this retrospective study was to present the experience of using full thickness skin-subcutaneous fat grafts, harvested from the patient's abdomen as interpositional material after gap arthroplasty. All patients presented(More)
Haemangiopericytoma is a rare vascular tumor accounting for about 1% of vascular tumors of the body. Less than 5% of hemangiopericytoma occur in the nasal cavity and are characterized by a rather benign nature with low tendency of metastasis. We report a case of right nasal polyp which underwent treatment but histologically proved to be haemangiopericytoma.(More)
