The purpose of this study was to explore possible calculations using oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) values in order to develop a simple measure of insulin sensitivity. We devised a formula for an insulin sensitivity index, ISI(0,120), that uses the fasting (0 min) and 120 min post-oral glucose (OGTT) insulin and glucose concentrations. It appears to be(More)
Results of the proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy carried out on normal, benign breast disease and locally advanced breast cancer patients are presented. The in-vivo MR spectra of malignant breast tissue of patients (n = 67) suffering from infiltrating ductal carcinoma are dominated by the water resonance, while the spectra of the unaffected(More)

Prominent heightened arousal symptoms and clinical/laboratory findings implicate the central noradrenergic system in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Heightened arousal frequently manifests in relation to sleep in PTSD. Central noradrenergic systems have a role in regulating arousal levels during sleep. We therefore evaluated noradrenergic production(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined the effects of a cognitive-behavioral stress management (CBSM) group intervention on serum cortisol levels in women being treated for stage I or II breast cancer. METHODS Participants were randomly assigned to undergo a 10-week intervention (N = 24) within 8 weeks after surgery or were placed on a waiting list (N = 10).(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing evidence suggests significant involvement of the basal ganglia in patients with HIV-1 infection. OBJECTIVE To study the effect of HIV-1 infection on cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dopamine levels. DESIGN CSF dopamine levels were measured by high-performance liquid chromatography. SETTING A university-based outpatient clinic in south(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have become an enabling technology for a wide range of applications. In contrast with traditional scenarios where static sensor nodes are densely deployed, a sparse WSN architecture can also be used in many cases. In a sparse WSN, special mobile data collectors (MDCs) are used to gather data from ordinary sensor nodes. In(More)
To study the bacteriology of neonatal septicaemia in a tertiary care hospital of Northern India we prospectively enrolled all the suspected cases of neonatal septicaemia, which were not on antimicrobials. One to two millilitre of blood from these neonates was cultured in brain heart infusion broth. Out of 728 cases, 346 (47.5%) were positive on blood(More)
