An inefficient law enforcing machinery has often been targeted for the increasing number of cases being reported. There is little recognition that psychiatric morbidity can(More)
UNLABELLED Levels of lipid peroxidation, nitric oxide and glutathione, as well as superoxide dismutase activity were evaluated in non-small cell lung cancer patients before and after chemotherapy. Oxidative stress was shown to influence treatment efficacy and survival of these patients. BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the(More)
OBJECTIVE(S) Targeting the Toll-like receptor (TLR) signaling pathway in elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms of human diseases, including cervical cancer, is gaining tremendous importance. The aim of our study was to identify the role of TLR 2(-196 to -174 del) and TLR 4(Asp299Gly and Thr399Ile) gene polymorphisms in cervical cancer(More)

This study used fractional anisotropy (FA), a measure of diffusion tensor imaging, to analyze white matter abnormalities in 15 first-episode treatment-naïve patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) and 15 controls matched for age. An automated voxel-based analysis and a region-of-interest (ROI) method with 3T magnetic resonance imaging were used.(More)
BACKGROUND This study determine oxidative stress and survival prospectively in advanced stage non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients following cisplatin based combination chemotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS The oxidative stress levels (LPO, NO, GSH and SOD) of 144 control subjects and 203 advanced stage (IIIA/IIIB/IV) newly diagnosed NSCLC patients(More)
In the present study, methanol extracts of Costus speciosus Koen. aerial parts were assessed for antiinflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic activities in experimental animals. The antiinflammatory activity of methanol extract of Costus speciosus (400 and 800 mg/kg, p.o.) was evaluated using carrageenan-induced paw oedema test. Analgesic effect was(More)
Acne is a common but serious skin disease, which affects approximately 80% adolescents and young adults in 11-30 age group. 42.5% of men and 50.9% of women continue to suffer from this disease into their twenties. Bacterial resistance is now at the alarming stage due to the irrational use of antibiotics. Hence, search for new lead molecule/bioactive and(More)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is one of most frequently diagnosed psychiatric illness, tends to run a chronic course and severely affects the patient's quality of life (QoL). The aim of this study was to assess QoL in patients with OCD and compare it with QoL of patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) and healthy controls. Forty-five patients(More)
