BACKGROUND Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) is diagnosed by estimating serum creatinine at 48-72h after diagnostic or interventional coronary angiography. It is too late for an early intervention. Neutrophil gelatinase associated lipocalin (NGAL) and cystatin C are novel markers of AKI. We determined the optimum cut-off level of NGAL and cystatin(More)
INTRODUCTION Vitamin D deficiency and vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphism, FokI, is reported to increase the risk of many cancers. Role of vitamin D and its receptor polymorphisms in ovarian cancer has not been clearly defined. OBJECTIVE To study the levels of serum vitamin D and occurrence of vitamin D receptor gene polymorphism (FokI) in cases of(More)

The monoclonal light chains are small enough to be freely filtered by the kidneys and become Bence–Jones protein. Light chain disease comprises about 18% of multiple(More)
Cryoglobulinemia is one of the most common forms of extrahepatic manifestation of chronic hepatitis infection. The phenomenon is generally seen after several years of chronicity predominantly in the female population resulting in arthralgias, purpuras, and other symptoms, due to vasculitis. Here we present a case of incomplete mixed cryoglobulinemia Type(More)
OBJECTIVE Vitamin D deficiency is reported to be involved in pathogenesis of ovarian cancer. But the mechanism is yet to be explored. An imbalance between Th1 and Th2 activity play a crucial role in pathogenesis of many cancers. The purpose of the study is to find out the Th1/Th2 status by estimating TNF-α (Th1 marker) and IL-4 (Th2 marker) in ovarian(More)
