BACKGROUND It is generally acknowledged that autoimmune diseases are more prevalent in females worldwide. These diseases are caused by interaction of genetic and environmental factors that result in the failure of immune mechanisms responsible for self-tolerance. One of these mechanisms includes regulatory T cells which play an essential role in maintaining(More)
One hundred and twenty-eight swab samples from footrot lesions of naturally infected sheep were examined for presence of Dichelobacter nodosus (D. nodosus). The detection of D. nodosus was carried out by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), directly from swabs or after isolation, using 16S rDNA specific primers. The isolation of the bacterium was carried out(More)
A total of 480 samples, comprising 429 faecal samples from healthy adult birds and 51 tissue samples from dead birds, were collected from four government poultry farms in the Kashmir valley from September 2007 to April 2008. In all, 33 Salmonella isolates were obtained. Of these, 28 (84.85%) isolates were Salmonella Gallinarum, 3 (9.09%) were Salmonella(More)
It is generally acknowledged that autoimmune diseases are more prevalent in females all over the world. These diseases are caused by interaction of genetic and environmental factors that result in the failure of immune mechanisms responsible for self-tolerance. Naturally occurring regulatory T cells (Treg) prevent autoimmune diseases; nevertheless, gender(More)
Comparative efficacy of miconazole nitrate, graphite, Thuja and Chrysorobin ointments was assessed against three keratinophillic fungi, viz., Trichophyton terrestris, Chrysosporium tropicum and Microsporum gypseum. All the test fungi were sensitive to the anti microbials tested in the present study. Miconazole nitrate, showed the maximum activity followed(More)
Fifty-eight typical EAEC isolates from children with diarrhoea were examined for HEp-2 cell adherence assay, presence of dispersin (aap), yersiniabactin (irp2), plasmid encoded toxins (pet), Shigella enterotoxin1 (set1A) and cryptic open reading frame (shf) putative virulence genes by polymerase chain reaction as well as for biofilm production. All the(More)
For adaptation, we selected to search guidelines on “Anesthesia for morbidly obese patients undergoing weight loss surgery – Perioperative care and pain management.” The main reason to choose this topic is the high incidence of obesity in Saudi Arabia and the increasing number of weight loss surgeries conducted in our setting. The current protocol we(More)
Background The aim of drug therapy is to attain distinct therapeutic effects that not only improve patient’s quality of life but also reduce the inherent risks associated with the therapeutic use of drugs. Pharmacists play a key role in reducing these risks by developing appropriate interventions. Whether to accept or reject the intervention made by the(More)
Hemophilia A is a hemorrhagic trend almost exclusively affecting males (X-related recessive disease). In 85% of cases, it is caused by factor VIII deficiency, called hemophilia A or classic hemophilia. Successful anesthetic management depends on the special care and a multidisciplinary team of health professionals informed about the disease, including(More)
BACKGROUND Medication errors in chemotherapy are frequent and lead to patient morbidity and mortality, as well as increased rates of re-admission and length of stay, and considerable extra costs. Objective: This study investigated the proposition that computerised chemotherapy ordering reduces the incidence and severity of chemotherapy protocol errors. (More)
