We have analysed the results of 246 cases of distal femoral tumours treated by resection and prosthetic replacement between 1988 and 2002. Patient ages ranged from 6-67 years averaging 24 years; 133 were males. The most common tumour was osteosarcoma (67% of patients). The follow-up ranged from 2 to 14 years. Stage II tumours were seen in 72% of patients.(More)
We report the synthesis of alloyed quaternary and quinary nanocrystals based on copper chalcogenides, namely, copper zinc selenide-sulfide (CZSeS), copper tin selenide-sulfide (CTSeS), and copper zinc tin selenide-sulfide (CZTSeS) nanoplatelets (NPLs) (∼20 nm wide) with tunable chemical composition. Our synthesis scheme consisted of two facile steps: i.e.,(More)
Esophageal and gastric cancer incidence has been increasing worldwide. Most cases are diagnosed in advanced stages, and current therapy has not been able to improve the modest survival rates after diagnosis. Epidermal growth factor receptor expression has been found to correlate with poor prognosis and aggressive disease in esophagogastric cancers.(More)
The Ewing's sarcoma family can present diagnostic difficulties. In the past the basis of diagnosis has been a exclusion. Identification of a specific translocation especially t(11;22) (EWS-FLI 1 fusion gene), which is seen in nearly 85 percent of Ewing's sarcoma cases can help in precise diagnosis. We have carried out a study on twenty patient samples(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Lung cancer presentation and decision-making in the very elderly patient population, 80 years of age and older, was studied given the projected increase in cancer incidence in the very elderly and yet only limited management guidelines. DESIGN AND SETTING A 10-year experience at the Unity Health System of Rochester, NY, was(More)
The role of viral co-infections and paraproteins in the development of hematological malignancies (HMs) in HIV remains unclear. Using our large database of HIV+ patients, we investigated whether co-infection and paraproteinemia increase the risk of HM. Data on demographics, hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) co-infections, paraproteinemia, HIV(More)
A short term histological study was conducted to determine the impacts of technical grade synthetic pyrethroid insecticide, cypermethrin and carbamate pesticide, carbofuran on different phases of ovarian maturation of freshwater indigenous carp, Labeo rohita. Adult females of L. rohita were exposed to sublethal doses of carbofuran (0.06, 0.15 mg/L) and(More)
Primary myelofibrosis is a clonal hematopoietic disorder characterized by ineffective hematopoiesis and progressive bone marrow fibrosis. Patients with high risk myelofibrosis as determined by their advanced age, degree of anemia, leukocytosis, constitutional symptoms and high percentage of circulating blasts have a very short median survival of 2 years. In(More)
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a hereditary red cell disorder with clinical manifestations secondary to sickling or crescent-shaped distortion of the red blood cells. Major clinical manifestations of SCD include haemolytic anaemia and vaso-occlusive phenomena resulting in ischaemic tissue injury and organ damage. Chronic sequelae of the anaemia and(More)
This study was conducted to assess the temporal changes in the status of food security in India. The food security was assessed in terms of its basic pillars—availability access and absorption. Findings reveal that though there has been a remarkable improvement in the status of food security in India, the presence of food insecurity on a large scale erodes(More)
