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)
Several studies suggest that cerebral microbleeds (CMB) seen on gradient echo magnetic resonance imaging (GE-MRI) of brain increase the future risk of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). We investigated 26 newly diagnosed patients of aplastic anemia (AA) with GE-MRI of brain who were otherwise neurologically asymptomatic. These patients were then further(More)
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)
The secondary intracellular target of human neutrophil peptide-1 has been examined in M. tuberculosis H37Ra. Binding studies with radioiodinated HNP-1 revealed biphasic equilibrium binding kinetics with respect to time. The major site of HNP-1 binding was found to be plasma membrane/cell wall whereas the cytosol appears to be a secondary site. Among the(More)
The biochemical mechanism of action of human neutrophil peptide-1 (HNP-1) against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Ra was studied. Mycobacteria grown in the presence of a subinhibitory concentration (IC50) of HNP-1 showed a significant decrease in the biosynthesis of vital macromolecules, as shown by the incorporation of various radiolabeled precursors.(More)
 Iron status was estimated in 463 heterozygous beta-thalassemics to delineate the effect of iron deficiency on the expression of hemoglobin A2 (HbA2) in these patients. One hundred and twenty-six (27.2%) patients with the trait were iron deficient. These iron-deficient patients had a significantly (p<0.0002) higher prevalence of anemia (90.5%) compared with(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)
