The present study was undertaken to explore the potential of erythropoietin in memory deficits of mice. Memory impairment was produced by scopolamine (0.5 mg/kg, i.p.) and intracerebroventricular streptozotocin (i.c.v STZ, 3 mg/kg, 10 µl, 1(st) and 3(rd) day) in separate groups of animals. Morris water-maze test was employed to assess learning and memory.(More)
PURPOSE A prospective, randomized comparison of shock wave lithotripsy, retrograde intrarenal surgery and miniperc for the treatment of 1 to 2 cm radiolucent lower calyceal renal calculi was done to evaluate the safety and efficacy of these procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients with a single 1 to 2 cm radiolucent lower calyceal renal stone who(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of prothrombotic gene polymorphisms [factor V Leiden (FVL) 1691GA, factor VII (FVII) 10976GA, FVII HVR4, platelet membrane glycoproteins GP1BA 1018CT, GP1BA VNTR, integrin ITGB3 1565TC, integrin ITGA2 807CT and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) 677C/T], plasma factors (fibrinogen and(More)
Current approaches to the treatment of cognitive and behavioral symptoms of Alzheimer disease emphasize the use of cholinesterase inhibitors. The kinetic effects of the cholinesterase inhibitors donepezil, galantamine, metrifonate, physostigmine, rivastigmine, and tetrahydroaminoacridine were examined with respect to their action on the esterase and aryl(More)
INTRODUCTION This first study from north India investigated the synergistic effect of AT1R 1166A/C with the ACE I/D polymorphism on risk of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Traditional coronary risk factors, ACE I/D and AT1R 1166A/C polymorphism were analyzed in 350 patients with AMI and 350 matched controls. RESULTS In(More)
This is the first study from north India that investigated the association of thrombomodulin (TM) polymorphisms with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in 350 patients (≤ 40 years, n = 184 and ≥ 60 years, n = 166) and 350 matched-controls. The TM polymorphisms were determined by polymerase chain reaction-single-stranded conformational polymorphism and DNA(More)
Grain hardness is an important quality trait that influences product development in wheat. This trait is governed by variation in puroindoline proteins (PINA and PINB). Our study evaluated 551 Indian wheat germplasm lines for diversity in Pina and Pinb genes. Eighty-two lines were shortlisted for full length sequencing and grain hardness studies. Sequencing(More)
The leucine rich repeat receptor like kinases (LRRK) constitute the largest subfamily of receptor like kinases (RLK), which play critical roles in plant development and stress responses. Herein, we identified 531 TaLRRK genes in Triticum aestivum (bread wheat), which were distributed throughout the A, B, and D sub-genomes and chromosomes. These were(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE A prospective randomized study was performed comparing miniperc and shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) for treatment of radiopaque 1 to 2 cm lower caliceal renal calculi in children to evaluate safety and efficacy of these procedures. PATIENTS AND METHODS Pediatric patients (<15 years) with a single radiopaque lower caliceal renal stone 1(More)
Kawasaki disease (KD) has not been frequently reported from developing countries, especially from India. In this series from a tertiary level center in North India, we report on the clinical features and management of patients with KD seen between January 1994 to November 2004. KD was diagnosed on the basis of standard diagnostic criteria. Investigations(More)
