HYPOTHESIS Assessment of the prevalence and type distribution of human papillomavirus (HPV) in squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) of the cervix across India was undertaken to estimate the impact of available prophylactic HPV-L1 vaccines in the country and to find out additional types that might be needed to be incorporated in second-generation vaccines.

The status and kinetics of monocyte activation during acute P. knowlesi infection was investigated by latex-induced, luminol-dependent chemiluminescence (CL) response. The contribution of various reactive oxygen species (ROS) to CL response was estimated before infection and at peak parasitaemia (day 7 post infection) by using scavengers of ROS (benzoate,(More)
Human papilloma virus is a causative factor in the etiology of cervical cancer with HPV16 being the most prevalent genotype associated with it. Intratype variations in oncogenic E6/E7 and capsid L1 proteins of HPV 16 besides being of phylogenetic importance, are associated with risk of viral persistence and progression. The objective of this multicentric(More)
The frequency of Toxoplasma gondii (Tgondii) infections was investigated during febrile episodes in nonstem cell transplant patients with haematological malignancies (HM). One hundred and sixty-two febrile episodes in 125 HIV-negative patients with HM undergoing treatment at Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology, Bangalore, India comprised the study group.(More)
The superoxide anion generation profile of peripheral blood monocytes of rhesus monkeys was investigated during the different stages of an acute Plasmodium knowlesi infection. An initial increase in superoxide anion was followed by a significant decline (P less than 0.001), paralleled by a drop in NADPH oxidase activity; there was no alteration in the(More)
The oxygen free radical generation (as determined by cytochrome c reduction) and respiratory burst enzyme activities were measured in the peripheral blood monocytes before infecting normal animals, during primary Plasmodium knowlesi infection, after treatment of primary infection with chloroquine, after administration of various subcurative doses following(More)
