Blood vessels usually have poor local contrast, and the application of existing edge detection algorithms yield results which are not satisfactory. An operator for feature extraction based on the optical and spatial properties of objects to be recognized is introduced. The gray-level profile of the cross section of a blood vessel is approximated by a(More)
Between 1998 and 2000, a total of 266 samples were found positive for group A rotaviruses by RNA electrophoresis. Samples were collected from patients admitted to two leading hospitals in Calcutta. Serotyping could be done only with 22% of the positive samples, leaving 78% untypeable. The G (VP7 genotypes) and P (VP4 genotypes) types were determined for 159(More)
Three bovine group B rotavirus strains were detected from diarrheic calves during a surveillance study of rotaviral diarrhea in West Bengal, India. The sequence analysis of VP7 and NSP5 genes of these strains demonstrates a high degree of sequence variation from other group B rotavirus strains, indicating the emergence of a new genotype.
OBJECTIVES India, with its 43 million hepatitis B virus (HBV) carriers and absence of any national immunization programme, adds a substantial number of HBV infections to the HBV carrier pool yearly. The aim of this study was to assess the spread of HBV infection in families with an infected member and to identify the family members with the highest risk of(More)
The specific apoptotic role of T11TS has been well established in glioma animal models. T11TS specifically induces the glioma cells to die an apoptotic death via immune cross-talk with the two intracranial immune competent cells-microglia and the brain-infiltrating lymphocytes. To unearth the molecular cascades operative within the glioma cells and to some(More)
BACKGROUND Available seroprevalence studies of hepatitis B in Indian population has limitations. A community based door to door epidemiological study was conducted between December 1997 and January 1988 to look for the dynamics of hepatitis B exposure in a single village of West Bengal. METHODS In all, 960 inhabitants out of 1261 (according to 91 census)(More)
Cyclin B-like mitotic proteins have been detected in synchronized Allium cepa L. root tip cells by using mouse monoclonal anti-cyclin B1 antibody raised against human cyclin B1. Immunoblot shows two closely placed isoforms of cyclin B-like proteins having an apparent molecular weight around 54 kDa. In vivo [35S]-methionine labelling followed by(More)
Among neoplasms, brain tumors are particularly " difficult to treat" because of the partial immune privileged status of the brain and the presence of the blood brain barrier (Selmaj, 1996). Many details of progressive development of brain tumors remain unexplored and elucidation of consequent changes of the immune system with correlated cellular(More)
BACKGROUND Infection with Helicobacter pylori is believed to be associated with generation of reactive oxygen molecules which leads to oxidative stress in the gastric mucosa; but the relation between oxidative stress and gastrointestinal mucosal damage has not been documented. AIM To look for evidence of oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation in the(More)
BACKGROUND In recent years, hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is gaining importance in Asian countries. Recent studies conducted in different parts of the world revealed that there is a genotypic correlation of disease severity and treatment outcome. OBJECTIVES A detailed study was carried out to delineate the genotypic distribution of HCV among acute and(More)
