Systemic anti-cancer therapies can produce acute and chronic organ damage. Ocular toxicity induced by anti-cancer chemotherapy is not uncommon, but underestimated and under-reported. The development of more aggressive regimens, use of newer agents and combination chemotherapies have resulted in a significant increase of reported cases of chemotherapies(More)
Moisture content in commercially available milk powder was investigated using near infrared (NIR) diffuse reflectance spectroscopy with an Indian low-cost dispersive NIR spectrophotometer. Different packets of milk powder of the same batch were procured from the market. Forty-five samples with moisture range 4-10% were prepared in the laboratory. Spectra of(More)
Nelfinavir mesylate is the first nonpeptidic protease inhibitor available in pediatric formulation. In the present paper the stability of nelfinavir mesylate under different stress conditions is evaluated using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The drug is subjected to thermal degradation, photodegradation, acid hydrolysis, base hydrolysis and(More)
Choroidal melanoma is the most common primary intra-ocular malignant tumor and second most common site of ten malignant melanoma sites in the body. Current diagnosis of choroidal melanoma is based on both the clinical experience of the specialist and modern diagnostic techniques such as indirect ophthalmoscopy, A- and B-ultrasonography scans, fundus(More)
INTRODUCTION The incidence of multiple primary cancers is reported to be between 0.3% and 4.3%. The second primary lesion is identified either simultaneously with the primary lesion (synchronous) or after a period of time (metachronous). Few cases of metastasis of breast carcinoma to the esophagus and vice versa have been reported in the past. CASE(More)
INTRODUCTION Metastatic tumors are the most common intra-ocular malignancies and choroid is by far the most common site for intra-ocular malignancies. Multiple foci are usually involved, and bilateral involvement is frequently seen. The primary sites for choroidal metastasis in decreasing order and by gender are: breast, lung, unknown primary,(More)
Regional odontodysplasia is a nonhereditary, uncommon developmental abnormality of teeth. Females have more predilections for regional odontodysplasia. The enamel, dentin and pulp of teeth are affected and radiographically, teeth are described as "ghost teeth".
