Hepatitis D is a liable reason of mortality and morbidity worldwide. It is caused by an RNA virus known as Hepatitis Delta Virus (HDV). Genetic studies of HDV have shown that delta antigen protein is responsible for replication of genome and play a foremost role in viral infection. Therefore, delta antigen protein may be used as suitable target for disease(More)
BACKGROUND Primary cemented total hip arthroplasty is a procedure for non-traumatic and traumatic affections of the hip. Long term follow-up is required to assess the longevity of the implant and establish the procedure. Indo-Asian literature on long term result of total hip arthroplasty is sparse. We present a 10-year follow-up of our patients of primary(More)
BACKGROUND The small delta antigen protein of hepatitis delta virus (HDV) has been shown to be important for replication of the virus and essential for the viral life cycle. Therefore, it may be an appropriate target for designing biological experiments for drug development to identify the potential inhibitors of hepatitis D. OBJECTIVES To identify a(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) the second most common age-associated progressive neurodegenerative disorder is characterized by loss of dopaminergic neurons, cytoplasmic inclusions of aggregated proteins (Lewy bodies), and neuroinflammation. The inflammation of neurons causes release of various inflammatory mediators (IFNs, EGF, IL5, IL6, HGF, LIF and BMP2). The(More)
BACKGROUND Among various types of polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA), omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in development and function of the brain. This study was undertaken to investigate the possible neuroprotective efficacy of omega-3 fatty acid on lead-induced neurotoxicity in rats. MATERIAL AND METHODS The experiment was carried out on 32 male(More)
Present study was designed to evaluate protective effects of pentoxifylline and its potentiation with low dose of nitric oxide (NO) modulators in adjuvant-induced experimental arthritis in rats. Wistar rats (200–300 g, n = 8 per group) of both sexes were used in the study. On day "0" experimental arthritis was induced by injecting 0.2 ml of Complete(More)
In this work, 3D model of D2 dopamine receptor was determined by comparative homology modeling program MODELLER. The computed model's energy was minimized and validated using PROCHECK and Errat tool to obtain a stable model structure and was submitted in Protein Model Database (PMDB-ID: PM0079251). Stable model was used for molecular docking against(More)
BACKGROUND Proximal humeral fractures account for 4-5% of all fractures; most of them involving elderly and osteoporotic people. 1 51% of such fractures are displaced. Two Fractures with minimal displacement, regardless of the number of fracture lines, can be treated with closed reduction and early mobilization, but anatomical reduction in displaced(More)
BACKGROUND The long term outcomes of decompressive surgery on relief of pain and disability in degenerative lumbar canal stenosis are unclear. The aim of our study was to evaluate the outcome of surgical management of secondary degenerative lumbar canal stenosis and to analyze the effect on outcome variables using Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA)(More)
