Serum paraoxonase is known to prevent low-density lipoprotein oxidation and atherogenesis. Association of paraoxonase with the oxidative status and lipid profile in chronic renal failure (CRF) patients on conservative management and those on chronic maintenance hemodialysis was analyzed in the present study. Serum paraoxonase, protein thiols, lipid(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study is to compare the shear bond strength (SBS) of stainless steel (SS) orthodontic brackets bonded with four different orthodontic adhesives. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty newly extracted premolars were bonded to 0.022 SS brackets (Ormco, Scafati, Italy) and equally divided into four groups based on adhesive used: (1)(More)
This paper presents an adaptive slope basic dynamic node creation algorithm for single hidden layer neural networks (ASBDNCA). The proposed algorithm is a constructive approach of building a single hidden layer neural network. The ASBDNCA puts emphasis on architectural adaptation and functional adaptation during learning. It uses gradient descent(More)
Racemose cysticercosis is a less frequent presentation of neurocysticercosis (NCC). It's presentation and management is quite different from cerebral parenchymal NCC. Diagnosis of racemose cysticercosis is based on the combination of clinical, epidemiologic, radiographic, and immunologic information. Compared with cysticercus cellulose, which most commonly(More)
Learning, teaching and training are intensely affected by the challenges of this epoch of digital time. They give prospects for the professionals in their higher and further education for training and developing their practical skills as the today smart user must need in this fast-moving and opulently diverse field. The gaining popularity of erudition on(More)
The massive data exchange on the web has deeply increased the risk of malicious activities thereby propelling the research in the area of Intrusion Detection System (IDS). This paper aims to first select ten classification algorithms based on their efficiency in terms of speed, capability to handle large dataset and dependency on parameter tuning and then(More)
Over the years, caching has been leveraged (and established) as an add-on functionality to enhance network performance. However, Information Centric Networking (ICN) conceives caching at network layer (i.e. beyond the premise of end-to-end principle) thereby making it one of the core functionalities. Further, ICN advocates named-content (another core(More)
The sustainability of Quality of Services (QoS) is difficult in Ad hoc Networks due to frequently changing network topology. In general, QoS is realized by the users on the overall performance of a network. To measure the quality of services, we have considered several factors such as, packet dropped, bandwidth, throughput, transmission delay, jitter, and(More)
