MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression at multiple levels. The discovery of virally encoded miRNAs attracted immense attention towards their role in viral replication and pathogenesis. Kaposi's-sarcoma-associated herpes virus encodes miRNA that functions as an orthologue of human cellular miRNA, i.e., hsa-miR-155. Keeping the same(More)
Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) is a rare, possibly life-threatening disease characterized by platelet activation, hemolysis and thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) leading to renal and other end-organ damage. We originally conducted two phase 2 studies (26 weeks and 1 year) evaluating eculizumab, a terminal complement inhibitor, in patients with(More)
The studies into the pathophysiology of viral miRNAs are still in infancy; the interspecies regulation at the miRNA level fuels the spark of the investigation into the repertoire of virus–host interactions. Reports pertaining to the viral miRNAs role in modulating/evading the host immune response are surging up; we initiated this in silico study to(More)
BACKGROUND The diagnosis of Pott's disease is mostly based on clinicoradiological observations substantiated by the bacterial culture, staining and histopathology. Since, no single technique is enough to conclude Pott's disease in diagnosis, the present study was undertaken to correlate the clinicoradiological, microbiological, histopathological and(More)
Breast cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers and the leading cause of cancer deaths among females across the world, accounting for 23 % (1.38 million) of total new cancer cases and 14 % (0.45 million) of the total cancer deaths in 2008. c-kit is expressed in mast cell growth factor, cellular migration, proliferation, melanoblasts,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency of mutations in exon 11 of the c-kit gene in patients with leukemia. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 50 leukemia patients (31 with acute myeloid leukemia, 5 with acutelymphoblastic leukemia, 9 with chronic myeloid leukemia, and 5 with chronic lymphocytic leukemia) that underwentPCR-SSCP, followed by direct DNA(More)
