Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis(ADEM) is an uncommon inflammatory demyelinating disease involving central nervous system white matter. A series of seven cases seen over a period of one year have been described. The patients presented with acute onset of focal neurological deficit (3 patients), alteration of sensorium(3) and ataxia(1). CT scan showed(More)
This paper presents the economic ordering policies of time-dependent deteriorating items in presence of trade credit using of discounted cash-flows (DCF) approach. In inventory analysis a DCF approach permits a proper recognition of the financial implication of the opportunity cost and out-of-pocket cost. In the inventory model, shortages are not allowed.(More)
The metabolic changes in the brain of patients affected with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) alone, both Type 2 DM and hypothyroidism and hypothyroidism only were investigated using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H MRS). Single-voxel spectroscopy was carried out in right and left frontal lobe white matter, left parietal white matter and left(More)
B Cell Lymphoma-2 (Bcl-2) protein suppresses ionizing radiation-induced apoptosis in hemato-lymphoid system. To enhance the survival of irradiated cells, we have compared the effects and mechanism of Bcl-2 and its functional variants, D34A (caspase-3 resistant) and S70E (mimics phosphorylation on S70). Bcl-2 and its mutants were transfected into(More)
Region of interest based morphometric diffusion tensor imaging analysis, has been used extensively for the assessment of age-related changes in human brain, is limited to two dimensions and does not reflect the whole fiber bundle; however, diffusion tensor tractography (DTT) offers an overall view of individual fiber bundle in three-dimensional spaces.(More)
The nuclear arsenal and the use of nuclear technologies have enhanced the likelihood of whole-body/partial-body radiation exposure. The central nervous system is highly susceptible to even low doses of radiation. With the aim of detecting and monitoring the pathologic changes of radiation-induced damage in brain parenchyma, we used serial diffusion tensor(More)
Ninety-nine consecutive patients with brachial plexus injuries were operated upon over a period of 8 1/2 years. Among them, 70% sustained traction injuries. The surgical procedures included neurolysis in 35, excision of a lateral neuroma in six and interfascicular sural nerve grafting in 27 patients. In 25 patients, after an exploration, no further surgical(More)
Trait anxiety, a personality dimension that measures an individual's higher disposition to anxiety, has been found to be associated with many functional consequences viz. increased distractibility, attentional bias in favor of threat-related information etc. Similarly, volumetric studies have reported morphological changes viz. a decrease in the volume of(More)
During normal haematopoiesis, cell development and differentiation programs are accomplished by switching 'on' and 'off' specific set of genes. Specificity of gene expression is primarily achieved by combinatorial control, i.e. through physical and functional interactions among several transcription factors that form sequence-specific multiprotein complexes(More)
The emergence of novel H1N1 has posed a situation that warrants urgent global attention. Though antiviral drugs are available in mainstream medicine for treating symptoms of swine flu, currently there is no preventive medicine available. Even when available, they would be in short supply and ineffective in a pandemic situation, for treating the masses(More)
