In recent years, an explosion in research on pattern recognition systems using neural network methods has been observed. Face Recognition (FR) is a specialized pattern recognition task for several applications such as security: access to limited areas, banking: identity confirmation and identification of wanted people at airports. Biometric techniques deals(More)
Background: The objective of the study was to correlate hysteroscopic findings with histopathological findings in women with abnormal uterine bleeding and to study the accuracy of hysteroscopy in abnormal uterine bleeding. Methods: Settings: tertiary care hospital. Study design: prospective study. A prospective study was carried out in the Department of(More)
Hypovitaminosis D is common in India. In the present prospective partially randomised study of vitamin D (D₃) supplementation during pregnancy, subjects were randomised in the second trimester to receive either one oral dose of 1500 μg vitamin D₃ (group 1, n 48) or two doses of 3000 μg vitamin D₃ each in the second and third trimesters (group 2, n 49).(More)
Multiple autoimmune diseases, including type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Graves disease, and systemic lupus erythematosus, are associated with an allelic variant of protein tyrosine phosphatase nonreceptor 22 (PTPN22), which encodes the protein LYP. To model the human disease-linked variant LYP-R620W, we generated knockin mice expressing the analogous(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive and irreversible neurodegenerative disorder characterized by amyloid beta (Aβ) deposition in brain with subsequent formation of neuritic plaques leading to dementia. A number of therapeutic strategies targeted against Aβ depositions have been rigorously explored which provided successful results corresponding to the(More)
The immunodeficiency disorder Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) leads to life-threatening hematopoietic cell dysfunction. We used WAS protein (WASp)-deficient mice to analyze the in vivo efficacy of lentiviral (LV) vectors using either a viral-derived promoter, MND, or the human proximal WAS promoter (WS1.6) for human WASp expression. Transplantation of stem(More)
Despite much interest in positional (deformational) plagiocephaly, the natural history is unclear. The purpose of this study was to determine cosmetic and developmental outcomes at a minimum of 5 years of age in children diagnosed in infancy with positional plagiocephaly (PP) and the impact of cranial orthotic use. A questionnaire survey was sent to parents(More)
AIMS To ascertain the cytological diagnosis of metastatic lesions with special reference to the clinicopathological analysis of the primary site in cases of epithelial and non-epithelial tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred seventy-one suspected metastatic lesions were aspirated with a 22-23G needle and the smears were fixed and stained. The cases in(More)
Xenorhabdus nematophila engages in a mutualistic partnership with the nematode Steinernema carpocapsae, which invades insects, migrates through the gut, and penetrates into the hemocoel (body cavity). We showed previously that during invasion of Manduca sexta, the gut microbe Staphylococcus saprophyticus appeared transiently in the hemocoel, while(More)
Understanding the adverse impact of nanoparticles in crop plants has emerged as one of the most interesting fields of plant research. Therefore, this study has been conducted to investigate the impact of silver nanoparticles (AgNps) on Pisium sativum seedlings. Besides this, we have also tested whether nitric oxide (NO) is capable of reducing toxicity of(More)
