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)
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)
Neurological disorders such as muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, and injury to the brain and spine currently have no known definitive treatments or cures. A study was carried out on 71 children suffering from such incurable neurological disorders and injury. They were intrathecally and intramuscularly administered autologous bone marrow-derived(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)
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)
Muscular dystrophy is a genetic disorder with no definite cure. A study was carried out on 150 patients diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. These included Duchenne muscular dystrophy, limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, and Becker muscular dystrophy variants. They were administered autologous bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells intrathecally and(More)
Embedded Ethernet is nothing but a microcontroller which is able to communicate with the network. This paper implements scheme for Ethernet connectivity between an embedded board (STR912FW44X) and PC for development of embedded web server. The board has an Ethernet controller (STE100P) which is 10/100 fast Ethernet 3.3V Transceiver. ARM 9 core IC STR912FW44(More)
Giant axonal neuropathy is a rare disorder of autosomal recessive inheritance, morphologically characterized by accumulation of neurofilaments in enlargements of preterminal regions of central and peripheral axons. We present a 7-year-old girl with thick and tightly curled lackluster hair suffering from giant axonal neuropathy. The diagnosis was confirmed(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)
