Necrosis and vascular proliferation are the pathologic features that distinguish the most malignant infiltrative astrocytoma, glioblastoma (GBM), from those of lower grades. In GBM, hypercellular zones called pseudopalisades typically surround necrotic foci. Although these cells are known to secrete high levels of proangiogenic factors that promote tumor(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to evaluate the influence of genetic polymorphisms of GSTM1, GSTT1, and GSTM3 on the susceptibility of cervical cancer. STUDY DESIGN Blood samples from 150 women with biopsy-confirmed cervical cancer and 168 healthy controls were analyzed by multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to detect the presence or(More)
Stromal-derived factor-1 (SDF-1) is a unique ligand of the CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4), which is critically involved in the metastasis of breast cancer. High levels of SDF-1 in the common destination organs of metastasis, such as the lymph nodes, lungs, liver, and bones, attract CXCR4-positive tumor cells. The interaction between SDF-1 and CXCR4 leads(More)

Grade 4 malignant glioma (GBM) is a fatal disease despite aggressive surgical and adjuvant therapies. The hallmark of GBM tumors is the presence of pseudopalisading necrosis and microvascular proliferation. These tumor cells are hypoxic and express hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), a prosurvival transcription factor that promotes formation of(More)
The ethanol crude extract of stem bark of Holoptelea integrifolia Planch. traditionally used in Indian system of medicine was screened for its antioxidant activity using α-tocopherol as standard antioxidant. The free radical scavenging potential of the extract was evaluated by two different antioxidant methods; ferric thiocyanate and thiobarbituric acid(More)
Primary malignant epithelial tumors of the lacrimal gland are rare. Forty cases of lacrimal gland tumors were diagnosed at the Department of Pathology, Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital, Hyderabad over a period of seven years from 2008 to 2014. The age range was from the second to eighth decades. Females were more commonly affected. Histologically, malignant(More)
Amukkarac curanam a polyherbal Siddha formulation was examined for its analgesic and antiinflammatory activity at a dose of 500 mg/kg, p.o. The experimental methods used were tail immersion and acetic acid induced writhing method for analgesic and cotton pellet induced granuloma formation for antiinflammatory activity. Pentazocine (10 mg/kg,(More)
