This paper presents a novel approach to simulate a Knowledge Based System for diagnosis of Breast Cancer using Soft Computing tools like Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) and Neuro Fuzzy Systems. The feed-forward neural network has been trained using three ANN algorithms, the Back propagation algorithm (BPA), the Radial Basis Function (RBF) Networks and the(More)
A major problem in medical science is attaining the correct diagnosis of disease in precedence of its treatment. This paper presents the diagnosis of thyroid disorders using Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). The feed-forward neural network has been trained using three ANN algorithms; the Back propagation algorithm (BPA), the Radial Basis Function (RBF)(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are leading cause of death in developing countries including India. The huge burden of CVD in Indian subcontinent is the consequence of the large population and high prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors. This study was done to determine the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in two industrial units in(More)
Maintenance hemodialysis is a treatment modality available to few patients reaching end-stage renal disease in India. However, the morbidity and outcome of such treatment remains largely unknown. A retrospective cohort of patients commencing hemodialysis in a secondary care institution in India between January 1, 2002 and December 31, 2004 was studied.(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the association of four obesity-related indices--body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), and waist-to-stature ratio (WSR)--with hypertension and type 2 diabetes among a male industrial population in south India. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS A cross sectional study of 2148 men aged 18-69 years in(More)
INTRODUCTION There is reasonable evidence that folic acid 5-10 mg per week leads to reduction in methotrexate (MTX) toxicity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, this is based on studies conducted with lower MTX dosage than used currently. It is unclear whether higher doses of folic acid may be better in reducing toxicity. METHODS This was a(More)
OBJECTIVES Hypertension is a major public health problem with prevalence ranging 22-30% in urban India. There are few data on hypertension epidemiology in rural India. We conducted a survey to estimate prevalence, awareness, treatment, control and risk factors for hypertension in a rural population in south India. METHODS We did cross-sectional survey in(More)

Thyroid gland secretes thyroid hormones to control the body's metabolic rate. The malfunction of thyroid hormone will leads to thyroid disorders. The under-activity and over-activity of thyroid hormone causes hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. This paper describes the diagnosis of thyroid disorders using decision tree attribute splitting rules. Since,(More)
Oral, cervical and breast cancers, which are either preventable and/or amenable to early detection and treatment, are the leading causes of cancer-related morbidity and mortality in India. In this paper, we describe implementation science research priorities to catalyze the prevention and control of these cancers in India. Research priorities were organized(More)
Genotyping of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) is important for precise classification of bacterium and for understanding the molecular epidemiology. The present study reports detection and typing of the MAP from milk. On the basis of clinical signs of diarrhea and/or weakness, the dairy animals suspected for Johne's disease were(More)
