Coagulation abnormalities are common in patients with head injuries. However, the effect of brain injury on fibrinogen levels has not been well studied prospectively to assess coagulation abnormalities in patients with moderate and severe head injuries and correlate these abnormalities with the neurologic outcome. Consecutive patients with moderate (Glasgow(More)
Genetic risk factors play an important role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VaD). In this case-control study, we examined C677T and A1298C (rs1801133 and rs1801131) polymorphism in the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) genes and their correlation with plasma levels of homocysteine (Hcy) in AD and VaD cases and(More)
BACKGROUND Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), nerve growth factor (NGF), neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) and glial cell line derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) play critical role in growth, differentiation, maintenance and synaptic plasticity in neuronal systems which is more relevant in adolescence. The present study was undertaken to verify the 'neurotrophin(More)
A thin endometrium is encountered infrequently (2.4%) in assisted reproductive technology cycles. When it does occur it is a cause of concern as it is associated with lower implantation rate and pregnancy rate. Though pregnancies have been reported at 4 and 5 mm it is apparent that an endometrial thickness <6 mm is associated with a trend toward lower(More)
OBJECTIVES To note the value of serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels in normal and high-risk pregnancies (HRP) in patients attending antenatal visits at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). MATERIALS AND METHODS This is a cross-sectional study where a total of 282 patients attending Gynecology Outpatient Department at AIIMS, New Delhi were(More)
OBJECTIVES To note the value of serum Vitamin B12, folic acid, and ferritin in normal and high-risk pregnancies (HRPs) in patients attending antenatal clinic at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). MATERIALS AND METHODS This is a cross-sectional study where a total of 282 patients attending Gynaecology Outpatient Department at AIIMS, New(More)
The mammalian haem peroxidase superfamily consists of myeloperoxidase (MPO), lactoperoxidase (LPO), eosinophil peroxidase (EPO) and thyroid peroxidase (TPO). These enzymes catalyze a number of oxidative reactions of inorganic substrates such as Cl(-), Br(-), I(-) and SCN(-) as well as of various organic aromatic compounds. To date, only structures of MPO(More)
The present study compares the serum cytokine levels between adolescent depression patients and healthy controls and assesses correlation between depression, anxiety scores and serum levels of eight cytokines. Study also checked the variation in serum levels with medication status (medication free/naïve vs. patients on medication). Following clinical and(More)
CONTEXT Coagulopathy frequently occurs following traumatic brain injury (TBI) and usually occurs 6-72 hour post-trauma. The incidence and the probable risk factors for development of coagulopathy and poor outcome following TBI are largely unknown and vary considerably. AIMS To assess the incidence and probable risk factors for development of coagulopathy(More)
