A ligand-based model is reported that predicts the Ki values for cytochrome P450 2C9 (CYP2C9) inhibitors. This CoMFA model was used to predict the affinity of 14 structurally diverse compounds not in the training set and appears to be robust. The mean error of the predictions is 6 microM. The experimentally measured Ki values of the 14 compounds range from(More)
The objective is to study a patient with sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). The patient, a 70-year-old woman with a history spanning over 1 month, with acute onset, progressive abnormal behavior, and cognitive decline with generalized asymmetrical myoclonic jerking, startle phenomenon, and cortical blindness, was referred to the hospital.

Erythrocyte lipid peroxidation, oxidative hemolysis, erythrocyte antioxidant enzymes, viz. superoxide dismutase, glutathione reductase, glutathione peroxidase, catalase and plasma antioxidants, viz. vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin C and ceruloplasmin have been determined by spectrophotometric methods in 15 patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and in 50(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the clinical, electrophysiological, imaging, and ultrastructural features of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses and its subtypes. METHODS The clinical, electrophysiological, imaging, histopathological, and ultrastructural features of 68 (age at onset: 4.3 ± 5.4 years) neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses and its subtypes (infantile neuronal(More)
Pediatric tracheostomy has been reported to be a surgical procedure with significant morbidity and mortality. The use of tracheostomy in airway management has changed over time as regards indication and outcome. A review of the last 13 years' experience in our institution was carried out to focus on this group of patients and the recent trends in airway(More)
BACKGROUND Juvenile myasthenia gravis (JMG) is an uncommon disease. Unlike adults, clinical characteristics and outcomes of myasthenia gravis (MG) are not well studied in children. PATIENTS AND METHODS Case records of 77 patients with MG who were 15 years of age or less at disease onset, evaluated over a period of 34 years at the National Institute of(More)
Himalayan headwaters supply large quantities of runoff derived from snowmelt and monsoon rainfall to the Ganges River. Actual snowmelt contribution to discharge in the Ganges remains conjectural under both present and future climatic conditions. As snowmelt is likely to be perturbed through climatic warming, four hydrological models, VIC, JULES, LPJmL and(More)
The serum and CSF antibody profiles were investigated in 100 patients with HIV in relation to the type and severity of neurological disease. Among them, 87 were positive for anti-HIV antibodies in the CSF. In 30 of 87 patients detailed analysis by western blot could be performed. In 20 of 30 the profiles were dissimilar, with more of bands being found in(More)
BACKGROUND Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) usually has a progressive stereotypic downhill course and results in premature death. Long-term stabilization or remission is exceptional. OBJECTIVE To analyze the profile of patients with a relatively 'benign' course who survive beyond 3 years. DESIGN Descriptive analysis of 19 (16 male, 3(More)
