BACKGROUND This prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase III trial assessed the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) as a steroid-sparing agent in patients with myasthenia gravis (MG). METHODS Patients with acetylcholine receptor antibody-positive class II-IVa MG (MG Foundation of America [MGFA]… (More)
UNLABELLED This study extends and validates a system for localizing brain activity changes based on fiducial markers, coregistration of SPECT and MRI structural images and atlas/MRI-assisted localization. METHODS Ten normal subjects underwent 99mTc-HMPAO SPECT during a resting eyes-closed baseline measurement and during visual stimulation (8-Hz reversing… (More)
Online auction, shopping, electronic billing etc. all such types of application involves problems of fraudulent transactions. Online fraud occurrence and its detection is one of the challenging fields for web development and online phantom transaction. As no-secure specification of online frauds is in research database, so the techniques to evaluate and… (More)
We have developed a simple method for locating functional regions of interest on successive SPECT scans obtained at different times and for locating neuroanatomical regions defined with MR on functional images obtained with SPECT. Plastic molds are made for each external auditory meatus and the glabella. A pocket is then made in each mold in which either a… (More)
The present paper deals with the study of φ-Ricci symmetric Kenmotsu manifolds. An example of a three-dimensional φ-Ricci symmetric Kenmotsu manifold is constructed for illustration.
Nowadays agile software development is used in greater extend but for small organizations only, whereas MDA is suitable for large organizations but yet not standardized. In this paper the pros and cons of Model Driven Architecture (MDA) and Extreme programming have been discussed. As both of them have some limitations and cannot be used in both large scale… (More)
OBJECTIVES The goals of this research were to evaluate acute (single-dose) and sub-acute (repeated-dose) toxicity profiles of methanolic extract of Pistacia integerrima J. L. Stewart ex Brandis (PI) for Wistar rats and to assess the safety profile of PI by observing physiological changes, mortality, changes in body weight, the histopathology of body organs,… (More)
In this paper, we study radical transversal lightlike submanifolds and screen slant radical transversal lightlike submanifolds of indefinite para-Sasakian manifolds giving some non-trivial examples of these submanifolds. Integrability conditions of distributions D and RadT M on radical transversal lightlike submanifolds and screen slant radical transversal… (More)
We establish some inequalities for invariant submanifolds involving totally real sectional curvature and the scalar curvature in a quaternion space form. The equality cases are also discussed.
