Sikkim is a small state in the eastern Himalayas. A survey was conducted to determine the prevalence of iodine deficiency disorders in the state. A two stage sampling procedure was adopted. In stage one, all villages in the state were listed and 249 were randomly selected for the survey. In stage two, households, were randomly selected from the selected(More)
We sought to determine the influence of risk factors of chronic kidney disease (CKD) on cardiac calcification. We studied the correlation between coronary artery calcium score (CACS) and the type and duration of dialysis as well as the presence of diabetes mellitus and hypertension. The relation between calcium score and mortality was also analyzed.(More)
A survey was conducted in Sikkim to determine the prevalence of endemic cretinism in the state. A household was the basic sampling unit. Villages were selected randomly in the state and from these households were selected randomly using the electoral lists. All members of the households were studied. Total of 17,837 individuals from 3,197 households from(More)
Isolated ventricular non-compaction is a rare type of cardiomyopathy resulting from arrested myocardial development during embryogenesis. This rare entity can be easily diagnosed by characteristic appearance of prominent myocardial trabeculations and deep inter-trabecular spaces. The clinical manifestations include heart failure signs, ventricular(More)
PURPOSE To perform dark field microscopy (DFM) for detection of Leptospira and to validate the results using Leptospira IgM antibody SERION ELISA test. METHODS After differential centrifugation of Ruys, DFM was done to demonstrate Leptospira in the blood and SERION ELISA was done for Leptospira IgM antibody in single or paired serum samples. One hundred(More)
Lupus is autoimmune heterogeneous disease and also a multi system disorder which predominantly affects women. There is no specific diagnostic test to predict Lupus and the diagnosis remains a clinical one, depends on a combination of clinical and laboratory features. Data mining is the use of sophisticated data analysis tools to discover previously unknown,(More)
The role of pre-operative short-term pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who undergo coronary artery bypass graft surgery has been assessed for the first time prospectively. Forty-five patients posted for coronary artery bypass graft surgery were randomised to receive either short-term pulmonary rehabilitation(More)
Discovering hidden patterns in medical data and relationship between them is often fallow. Classification technique in data mining is used to discover the hidden knowledge from enormous data. This work is done on predicting the risk of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)/ Lupus using data mining classification technique. Decision tree algorithm is used for(More)
Nowadays we are using the pin number for security in ATMs, which replaced signature based system. The pin based security is the simplest level of security. The pin number is a unique number which is encrypted and decrypted during transaction. Nowadays the pin number can be extracted through many ways, for fraudulent activity. So, as a solution the pin(More)
The Local or remote grid computing resources have been normally assigned the task of executing user jobs in a distributed environment. Enumerable number of problems is likely to arise in execution process because of the existence of complicated heterogeneous virtuality in terms of processing nodes and network system. Another important factor affecting Grid(More)
