Among the 40 to 100 million persons with epilepsy worldwide and the 2 to 2.5 million persons with epilepsies in the United States, approximately 50% have generalized epilepsies. Among all epilepsies, the most common are juvenile myoclonus epilepsy (JME) with 10% to 30% of cases, childhood absence epilepsy (CAE) with 5% to 15% of cases, and pure grand mal on(More)
Childhood absence epilepsy (CAE), one of the most common epilepsies in children, is genetically and phenotypically heterogeneous. One of the genes responsible for human CAE associated with tonic-clonic seizures has been mapped to chromosome band 8q24 by genetic linkage analysis and is termed ECA1. Recently, we isolated and mapped the JRK/JH8 gene, a human(More)
31 patients of multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosed in the last six years in a large teaching hospital were reviewed. The hospital incidence of 0.85% of total admissions in neurology unit in western India is comparable to the series from other parts of India. The mean age at onset was slightly lower compared to other series. The female preponderence was noted(More)
Childhood absence epilepsy (CAE) is one of the most common epilepsies in children. At least four phenotypic subcategories of CAE have been proposed. Among them, a subtype persisting with tonic-clonic seizures has been mapped to 8q24 (ECA1 MIM 600131). By constructing a physical map for the 8q24 region, we recently narrowed the ECA1 locus to a 1.5-Mb region.(More)
BACKGROUND The Innovative Mobile-phone Technology for Community Health Operation (ImTeCHO) is a mobile-phone application that helps Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs) in complete registration through the strategies employed during implementation that is linking ASHAs' incentives to digital records, regular feedback, onsite data entry, and demand(More)
UNLABELLED Grossing and microscopic examination of the received specimens in a histopathological laboratory is a routine procedure for achieving a fi nal diagnosis. Errors in either of the steps may lead to an inaccurate diagnosis since wrong orientation of the specimen may either cause diagnostic delays or pose a diagnostic dilemma. Stereomicroscope is an(More)
