Chronic venous disease (CVD) is one of the most prevalent yet underrated disorders worldwide. High heritability estimates of CVD indicate prominent genetic components in its etiology and pathology. Mutations in human forkhead box C2 (FoxC2) gene are strongly associated with valve failure in saphenous and deep veins of lower extremities. We explored the(More)
Technical Appendix Figure. Phylogenetic analysis of B3 genotype measles virus sequences detected in India with selected global B3 genotypes. A D8 genotype sequence from Thiruvananthapuram was used as the outgroup. We performed maximum-likelihood analysis with 1,000 bootstrap replications using Kimura2-parameter correction with gamma-distributed settings.(More)
Human metapneumovirus (HMPV) and human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV) are ubiquitous respiratory viral pathogens. They belong to the family Paramyxoviridae (subfamily Pneumovirinae) and is responsible for acute respiratory tract infections in children, elderly and immunocompromised patients. We designed and tested a multiplex reverse transcriptase(More)
Traumatic injuries in childhood may disrupt root development leading to a tooth with open apex. Apexification procedures in such cases aim at root end closure after reasonable period of time. In some chronic cases, complete healing of the periapical area does not occur resulting in development of a nonhealing sinus. Failure of nonsurgical approach in such(More)
Let G be a compact connected metric abelian group equipped with its normalised Haar measure. Let T x = a + A(x) be a continuous surjective affine map of G such that γ ≡ 1 is the only character of G satisfying γ • A n = γ for some positive integer n. Then if φ is a polynomial with real coefficients mapping the natural numbers to themselves, (p l) ∞ l=1 is(More)
