Rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) have revolutionized the diagnosis of malaria. Among the various factors affecting RDTs sensitivity is genetic variation of the antigen used. The genetic variation in PfHRP2 and PfHRP3 proteins was studied among the Indian Plasmodium falciparum isolates. One hundred and forty isolates of P. falciparum were collected from six(More)
The use of antimalarial drugs in India has evolved since the introduction of quinine in the 17 th century. Since the formal establishment of a malaria control programme in 1953, shortly after independence, treatments provided by the public sector ranged from chloroquine, the mainstay drug for many decades, to the newer, recently introduced artemisinin based(More)
Navigating through multidimensional data cubes is a nontrivial task. Although On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP) provides the capability to view multidimensional data through rollup, drill-down, and slicing-dicing, it offers minimal guidance to end users in the actual knowledge discovery process. In this article, we address this knowledge discovery(More)
Osteosarcoma most commonly arises in the long bones of the skeleton, and rarely develops in the bones of the foot. We describe a patient who presented with left foot pain, whose radiographic evaluation revealed a lytic destructive mass in the cuboid bone. A biopsy showed an osteoblastoma-like variant of osteosarcoma and the patient was treated with(More)
1 — VIsible light communication for advanced Driver Assistant Systems (VIDAS) is an outdoor application using the visible spectrum of light emitting diodes (LED). A simple traffic light set up based on LED traffic lights for traffic information transmission has been analyzed in this paper. Various important design parameters have been optimized through(More)
 Intelligent transportation system (ITS) refers to efforts to add information and communications technology to transport infrastructure and vehicles, in order to: – improve safety – reduce vehicle wear, – reduce transportation times, and – reduce fuel consumption. DEFINITION …  ITS improves transportation safety and mobility and enhances productivity(More)
This paper describes a publicly available, open source software framework designed to support research efforts on algorithms and control for digital microfluidic biochips (DMFBs), an emerging laboratory-on-a-chip (LoC) technology. The framework consists of two parts: a compiler, which converts an assay, specified using the BioCoder language, into a sequence(More)
