We developed mouse monoclonal antibodies (Abs) against pepsinogen C with highly purified antigen isolated from gastric mucosa. The Abs were used to construct a two-site sandwich-type assay for pepsinogen C with time-resolved fluorometry as a detection technique. The assay has a detection limit of 0.1 microgram/L and is precise (within-run and day-to-day CVs(More)
Two cases of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis are presented with detailed accounts of the clinical, histopathological and histochemical changes in the brain. In one of them, neurochemical analysis of the brain was found to be essentially normal. Despite the pathological and histochemical similarity in these two cases, the clinical forms were quite distinct.(More)
Type 2 diabetes is a polygenic disease which afflicts nearly 200 million people worldwide and is expected to increase to near epidemic levels over the next 10-15 years. Glucokinase (GK) activators are currently under investigation by a number of pharmaceutical companies with only a few reaching early clinical evaluation. A GK activator has the promise of(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective observational study. PURPOSE To identify the role of percutaneous vertebral biopsy in histopathological diagnosis of vertebral compression fractures and to identify the frequency of unexpected malignancy in vertebral compression fractures. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Vertebral compression fractures are common in the Indian(More)
Plasmodium falciparum cysteine protease falcipain-2 (FP-2) is a promising target for antimalarial chemotherapy and inhibition of this protease affects the growth of parasite adversely. A series of pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidin-4-ones were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro FP-2 inhibitory potential. Compounds (14,17) showed excellent FP-2 inhibition and(More)
which permits unrestricted non-commercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. We are thankful to everyone who read our article. Here we have addressed the queries raised. 1. We performed vertebral percutaneous biopsies for all vertebral compression fractures except for those that met our exclusion(More)
INTRODUCTION There is an urgent need to discover new antimalarial drugs due to emergence of resistance in the parasite to the existing drugs. Malarial cysteine proteases falcipin-2 (FP-2) and falcipain-3 (FP-3) are attractive targets for antimalarial chemotherapy. The structures and functions of FP-2/3, their binding domains and their interactions with(More)
A novel class of N-substituted 4-hydrazino piperidine derivatives were designed, synthesized and evaluated for DPP IV inhibition. The SAR studies on the N-substituted piperidine led to the discovery of compound 22e as a potent DPP IV inhibitor (IC(50) 88nM), which is highly selective over other peptidases. In vivo efficacy indicates that compound 22e(More)
We need to overcome limitations of present assessment and also integrate newer research in our work about sciatica. Inflammation induces changes in the DRG and nerve root. It sensitizes the axons. Nociceptor is a unique axon. It is pseudo unipolar: both its ends, central and peripheral, behave in similar fashion. The nerve in periphery which carries these(More)
