A five-parameter distribution called Beta Generalized Weibull (BGW) distribution is introduced. Exponential are its sub models. The cumulative distribution function (cdf) and the probability density function (pdf) have been expressed as mixtures of the Generalized Weibull cdfs and pdfs. The kth order moment has been derived. The non-linear equations for(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A) and chemokne ligand-2 (CCL2) levels have been examined in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) patients in Western countries. We measured these values in North Indian ALS patients, since these patients display considerably enhanced survival duration. METHODS Sporadic ALS patients were included on the(More)

Background Previous studies have attempted to link hygiene hypothesis with IBD. However most of these studies come from developed countries where the level of hygiene is high and universal. Very little data is available from developing countries. The present study explores the truth of hygiene hypotheses and other risk factors for ulcerative colitis (UC) in(More)
Based on age of presentation, celiac disease (CD) is categorised as pediatric CD and adult CD. It however remains unclear if these are genetically and/or phenotypically distinct disorders or just different spectrum of the same disease. We therefore explored the common genetic components underlying pediatric and adult CD in a well characterized north Indian(More)
BACKGROUND Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) is very sensitive assay which provides quantitative data about expression of antigens. However, its utility is based on certain parameters which vary in the experimental situations. PURPOSE We aimed to analyse the dilution factor as an important parameter for determining the sensitivity of ELISA in(More)
Curcuma longa L., commonly known as turmeric, is one of the economically and medicinally important plant species. It is predominantly cultivated in the tropical and sub tropical countries. India is the largest producer, and exporter of turmeric in the world, followed by China, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Thailand. In the present study, Directed Amplification(More)
PURPOSE To ascertain the incidence, identify risk factors and calculate cumulative effect of risk factors in patients developing glaucoma following optical penetrating keratoplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS We carried out retrospective analysis of 445 patients, those underwent optical PK and had a minimum follow up of 6 m. Data on post-operative intra-ocular(More)

In the title compound, C20H13ClO3, the dihedral angles between the benzoate and the chloro-benzene and benzoyl rings are 68.82 (5) and 53.76 (6)°, respectively, while the dihedral angle between the benzoyl and benzoate rings is 81.17 (5)°. The eight atoms of the benzoyl residue are essentially planar with the exception of the O atom which lies 0.1860 (5) Å(More)
PURPOSE To determine external, middle, and inner ear abnormalities on high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) of temporal bone in patients with microtia and to predict anatomic external and middle ear anomalies as well as the degree of functional hearing impairment based on clinical grades of microtia. MATERIALS AND METHODS It was a retrospective study(More)
