Cellular therapy is an emerging therapeutic modality with a great potential for the treatment of autism. Recent findings show that the major underlying pathogenetic mechanisms of autism are hypoperfusion and immune alterations in the brain. So conceptually, cellular therapy which facilitates counteractive processes of improving perfusion by angiogenesis and(More)
Cerebral palsy (CP) is one of the non-progressive neurological diseases caused by damage to the brain tissue at birth, which leads to physical, cognitive and perceptive symptoms. Even after lifelong medical and therapeutic management there are residual deficits which affect the quality of life of the patients and their families. We examined a maximally(More)
Cerebral palsy is a nonprogressive heterogeneous group of neurological disorders with a growing rate of prevalence. Recently, cellular therapy is emerging as a potential novel treatment strategy for cerebral palsy. The various mechanisms by which cellular therapy works include neuroprotection, immunomodulation, neurorestoration, and neurogenesis. We(More)
INTRODUCTION Many essential oils have been advocated for use in complementary medicine for bacterial and fungal infections. However, few of the many claims of therapeutic efficacy have been validated adequately by either in vitro testing or in vivo clinical trials. OBJECTIVE To study the antibacterial activity of nine commercially available essential oils(More)
In this paper, wavefront based algorithms are presented to create a path for a robot while detecting and avoiding obstacles of different shapes in indoor environment. Here an overhead camera is used to acquire an image of the environment. The image analysis is based on general processing in MATLAB. On that basis, 4 point and 8 point connectivity based(More)
Traumatic brain injury is an injury to the brain parenchyma resulting from external factors such as vehicular accidents, falls, or sports injuries. Its outcome involves primary insult followed by a cascade of secondary insult, resulting in diffuse axonal injury further causing white matter damage. Surgical intervention targets the primary damage, whereas(More)
Spinal cord injury (SCI) in the pediatric population is a rare incidence and has devastating consequences. Cellular transplantation is one of the emerging strategies in the treatment of SCI. Here, we present a case report of an 8-year-old female who sustained traumatic incomplete SCI at the level of D10-D11 four years ago. Two years after the accident, she(More)
Atypical femur fracture (AFF), a serious complication of long-term bisphosphonate therapy, is usually preceded by an incomplete fracture appearing on the lateral femur. AFF is most likely the result of severely suppressed bone turnover (SSBT). However, the differences in bone structure and turnover between patients with incomplete and complete AFF remain(More)
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a non progressive, demyelinating disorder that affects a child's development and posture and may be associated with sensation, cognition, communication and perception abnormalities. In CP, cerebral white matter is injured resulting in the loss of oligodendrocytes. This causes damage to the myelin and disruption of nerve conduction.(More)
