Megakaryoblastic termination of myeloproliferative disorders is rare. The morphology of megakaryoblastic transformation can be subtle and is often mistaken for myeloid or lymphoid proliferations. Previously reported observations suggest a relatively poor prognosis for this category of patients, making precise diagnosis imperative. A multifaceted approach(More)

Elevated troponin I (TnI), while commonly seen in ACS, can also occur in entities such as sepsis and pulmonary thromboembolic disease. Raised TnI levels in patients with sepsis result from various mechanisms, including(More)
The sorption abilities of leaves powders of Bhringraj , Aerva lanata, Trianthema portulacastrum L for extracting Chromium (VI) from polluted waters have been studied with respect to various physicochemical parameters such as pH, sorption dosage and equilibrium time. The conditions for maximum removal of Chromium (VI) have been optimized. Ten fold excess of(More)
