We found an abnormal 47,XX,+mar karyotype in a patient with developmental delay, hypotonia, microcephaly, failure to thrive, and cognitive delay. When metaphases were hybridized with Prader-Willi and Angelman loci-specific probes by the FISH technique, two sites were noted at opposite positions on the marker chromosome. The alphoid satellite DNA probe(More)
We report a new chromosomal finding in a 20 month-old girl. The minor clinical features included: moderate mental retardation, microcephaly, mild hypotonia and hypertelorism. Initially, what appeared to be a terminal deletion of the long arm of one chromosome 15 [15q26-->qter] was determined to be an interstitial deletion involving band 15q25 as revealed by(More)

CONTEXT The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), diclofenac causes hepato-renal toxicity and gastric ulcer. The aim of this study was to investigate the protective effect of Spirulina fusiformis on Diclofenac-induced toxicity in Wistar albino rats. METHODS Rats were treated as follows: normal control (group I); diclofenac (50mg/kgb.w., i.p.)(More)
