To determine the prevalence of antibodies to viral diseases known or suspected to be present in Pakistan, we studied 570 sera from three groups of adults; two of the groups were involved in outbreaks of hepatitis, and the third included men admitted to a hospital for evaluation of febrile illnesses. Immunoglobulin G antileptospiral antibody was found in 1(More)
Columns and papers of titanium arsenate have been utilized for chromatographic studies of several alkaloids in aqueous and mixed solvent systems. The results have been compared with those obtained with plain papers. A number of separations have been achieved on papers impregnated with titanium arsenate. Distribution coefficients of these alkaloids have been(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the clinicopathological features in c-ANCA positive patients suffering from vasculitis with a view to find out the most common mode of presentation. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective. SETTINGS Department of Immunology, AFIP, Rawalpindi, MH Rawalpindi, CMH Rawalpindi, Department of Rheumatology, PIMS, Islamabad, RGH Rawalpindi, FFH,(More)
INTRODUCTION Diabetic neuropathy is one of the most common causes of chronic neuropathic symptomatology and the most disabling and difficult-to-treat diabetic microangiopathic complication. The neuropathies associated with diabetes are typically classified into generalized, focal and multifocal varieties. There exists a scarcity of literature studying the(More)
A simple and reproducible procedure has been developed for the dissolution of tantalum pentoxide. The oxide is fused with potassium nitrate and potassium carbonate in the ratio of 2:5:5. The cooled melt is dissolved in concentrated sulphuric acid. If a tartaric acid solution is desired the sulphuric acid is evaporated and the residue dissolved in 20%(More)
The French-American and British (FAB) classification of 62 consecutive cases of acute myeloid leukemia was undertaken. AML-M2 was the commonest FAB type (32.26%), followed by M1 and M4 (22.58% each), M5 (8.6%) and M6 and M7 (1.61% each), respectively. One of the patients was diagnosed as AML-MO (not a FAB type). The mean age of M1, M2, M3 and M5 cases was(More)
The antimonate, arsenate, tungstate, molybdate and selenite of titanium have been synthesized. Their composition and chemical and thermal stability have been determined. Effects of pH and temperature on ion-exchange capacity have been studied. Titanium antimonate was found to be the most stable. The utility of these ion-exchangers for analytical separations(More)
