Diethylnitrosamine (DEN), found in many commonly consumed foods, has been reported to induce cancers in animals and humans. Several models have been developed to study multistage carcinogenesis in rat liver; these include the Solt–Farber-resistant hepatocyte model. In the Solt–Farber model, the initiation consists of either a necrogenic dose of a(More)
Changes in blood glucose and glucose tolerance by oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) after 40 days of yoga therapy in 149 non-insulin-dependent diabetics (NIDDM) were investigated. The response to yoga in these subjects was categorized according to a severity scale index (SSI) based on area index total (AIT) under OGTT curve. One hundred and four patients(More)
Forty six young asthmatics with a history of childhood asthma were admitted for yoga training. Effects of training on resting pulmonary functions, exercise capacity, and exercise-induced bronchial lability index were measured. Yoga training resulted in a significant increase in pulmonary function and exercise capacity. A follow-up study spanning two years(More)
Lung cancer continues to represent a major public health concern with high morbidity and mortality worldwide. Early detection of lung cancer is problematic due to a lack of diagnostic markers with high sensitivity and specificity. To determine the differently expressed proteins in the serum of lung cancer and identify the function of such proteins,(More)
Lung cancer is one of the most common malignant neoplasms all over the world. Smoking and a number of constituents of tobacco are responsible for development of lung tumours; however, the deleterious effects of tobacco-derived carcinogen, nitrosamine 4-(methylnitrosoamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (nicotine-derived nitrosamine ketone (NNK)) remain(More)
Liver cancer remains the leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Early detection of liver cancer is problematic due to the lack of a marker with high diagnosis sensitivity and specificity. The present study was designed to determine the differently expressed proteins at early stage in the serum of animals with liver cancer vis-à-vis controls(More)
Lung cancer is one of the commonest cancers detected worldwide with a high mortality rate. The responsible factors affecting survival include delayed prognosis, and lack of effective treatments. To help improve the disease management, there is a need for better screening and development of specific markers that help in the early diagnosis. Analysis of(More)
Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers in terms of both incidence and mortality.The major reasons for the increasing number of deaths from lung cancer are late detection and lack of effective therapies. To improve our understanding of lung cancer biology, there is urgent need for blood-based, non-invasive molecular tests to assist in its detection in(More)
