Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the leading cause of dementia among the elderly population; however, knowledge about genetic risk factors involved in disease progression is limited. We conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) using clinical decline as measured by changes in the Clinical Dementia Rating-sum of boxes as a quantitative trait to test for(More)
Glutathione functions as an important antioxidant in the destruction of hydrogen peroxide and lipid peroxides by providing substrate for the glutathione peroxidase and also promotes the ascorbic acid. Glutathione plays a vital role in detoxification of xenobiotics, carcinogens, free radicals and maintenance of immune functions. The study was aimed to(More)
Serum lipids and lipoproteins were studied in 61 breast cancer patients before initiation of therapy and subsequently during and after completion of cancer therapy. Different serum lipid fractions were estimated by enzymatic method. It was observed that mean levels of serum triglycerides, total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol among(More)
Serum levels of various lipid parameters, i.e., triglycerides, total cholesterol, alpha lipoprotein or high density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol and beta lipoprotein or low density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol were measured in a total of 138 histologically proven cases of breast cancer along with 146 control women. The mean levels of serum triglycerides,(More)
GRUNDLAGEN: Pseudomyxoma peritonei ist selten. Meist entsteht es in der Appendix. METHODIK: Fallbericht. ERGEBNISSE: Hier berichten wir über den seltenen Fall von Pseudomyxoma peritonei, welches sich aus einer muzinösen Milzzyste entwickelte. Die Patientin wurde splenektomiert, appendektomiert, beidseits ovarektomiert, und es erfolgte ein lokales(More)
Fahr’s disease was first described by German neurologist Karl Theodor in 1930. It is considered as a familial or sporadic disorder. Majority of cases have been reported to have autosomal dominant inheritance, likewise very few cases are also reported to have autosomal recessive inheritance. Fahr’s disease is also known as familial cerebral ferrocalcinosis(More)
Tissues from 40 cases each of premenopausal and postmenopausal breast cancer were studied immunohistochemically for epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF-R) and c-erbB-2 oncoprotein. In the premenopausal group, immunopositivity for c-erbB-2 was 15% and for EGF-R 22.5%, whereas in the postmenopausal group, 45% of cases were positive for c-erbB-2 and 42.5%(More)
There are numerous growing evidences of resemblance between carcinomas of the breast and prostate. A total of 45 cases of these two hormone-dependent cancers along with appropriate controls were subjected for status of epidermal growth factor receptors as well as serum lipid profile. Paraffin embedded tissue sections from aforesald tumours were analysed by(More)
Endogenous oestrogens are thought to be involved in breast cancer, but few studies could show the direct relationship between hormones and pathological process of the disease. In the present study, oestradiol was estimated in the serum of pre-and postmenopausal breast cancer patients along with normal healthy controls and patients with carcinoma of the(More)
A comparative study was undertaken between cancer of the uterine cervix (n = 50) and female breast cancer (n = 50) with reference to the expression of c-erbB-2 oncoprotein (HER-2/neu) and that of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF-R), both being highly homologous structurally. Expressions of EGF-R and c-erbB-2 oncoprotein were viewed in breast and(More)
