Bone marrow-derived stem cells enhance the rate of regeneration and clinical improvement in nerve injury, spinal cord injury and brain infarction. Recent experiments in rat spinal cord demyelination showed that remyelination was specific to intravenous delivery of the bone marrow-derived mononuclear cell (BM-MNC) fraction, although the specific role of this(More)
A survey was conducted in 10 districts of northern India. Significant deficiency of zinc was observed in soil, fodders and (cattle) serum samples. The animals showed typical signs of zinc deficiency, namely stiff gait, swelling of hocks and knees, subcutaneous fluid accumulation, rough coat, etc. of variable intensity. A clustered model therapeutic trial(More)
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE Intracranial cysts containing an ectopic choroid plexus or choroid plexus-like tissue have seldom been described in the literature. However, there has been no report of a spinal intramedullary cyst containing an ectopic choroid plexus. This is the first case report in the available literature of an ectopic choroid plexus tissue in(More)
INTRODUCTION Post operative pituitary apoplexy after partial resection of a giant pituitary adenoma is mostly fatal, despite early and best management. Pathophysiology, clinical presentation and preoperative consideration toward prevention of apoplexy are discussed. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with post operative pituitary apoplexy were critically(More)
Both occipital encephalocele and teratomas are midline congenital malformations. Encephalocele is a form of neural tube defect in which there is a congenital defect of the cranium through which occurs a protrusion of brain matter or meninges, while teratoma is a tumor derived from all three germ layers. The association between occipital encephalocele and(More)
BACKGROUND There is controversy regarding the patterns and prognostic significance of Her-2/neu and p-53 expression in osteosarcoma. Further, their combined expression has not been studied. PROCEDURE Prechemotherapy biopsy specimens of 63 osteosarcoma patients from June 2004 to August 2006 were analyzed for Her-2/neu and p-53 using immunohistochemistry(More)
Haematological studies in heartworm-infected dogs revealed low haemoglobin concentration, increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate and a marked increase in lymphocyte percentage. Biochemical analysis of serum of dogs infected with heartworm showed increases in serum total bilirubin, serum globulin, chloride, phosphorus, serum glutamic oxaloacetic(More)
OBJECT Bone marrow-derived stem cells enhance the rate of regeneration of neuronal cells leading to clinical improvement in nerve injury, spinal cord injury, and brain infarction. Recent experiments in the local application of bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells (BM-MNCs) in models of sciatic nerve transection in rats have suggested their beneficial role(More)
BACKGROUND Oncocytic carcinoid tumor of the lung is a rare variant of pulmonary carcinoid. This report describes the morphologic appearance of this rare tumor on filter membrane preparation along with potential pitfalls. CASE A 49-year-old woman presented with cough and expectoration. On chest radiograph a mass lesion was seen in the upper zone of the(More)
