BACKGROUND Diarrhoeagenic Escherichia coli (DEC) is associated with early death of children in developing countries and are being identified now as an important evolving pathogen. The objective of this study was to perform multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for simultaneous detection of six categories of DEC in two sets of PCR reactions using 11(More)
Pemphigus is an autoimmune blistering disorder of skin and/or mucosal surfaces characterized by intraepithelial lesions and immunoglobulin-G autoantibodies against desmogleins (proteins critical in cell-to-cell adhesion). Genetic, immunological, hormonal, and environmental factors are known to contribute to its etiology. Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α)(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Multidrug-resistant enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) is responsible for a large number of cases of infantile diarrhoea in developing countries, causing failure in treatment with consequent health burden and resulting in a large number of deaths every year. This study was undertaken to determine the proportion of typical and(More)
S: POSTER PRESENTATIONS tomy in rural areas. Opportunities exist to increase breast conservation rates through improved access to care and increased use of accelerated partial breast radiotherapy (XRT or brachytherapy) as an alternative to routine whole breast
Sir, The emergence of drug resistance among diarrheagenic Escherichia coli in the pediatric population is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in developing countries. The widespread reports[1] of different mechanisms of drug resistance in E. coli not only complicates treatment of different infections caused by it, but also enhances the risks of(More)
Integrons by means of horizontal gene transfer carry multidrug resistance genes (MDR) among bacteria, including E. coli. The aim of this study was to determine the antibiotic resistance profiles and the genes associated with them, to gain insights in the distribution of phylogroups, prevalence, and characterization of class 1, 2 and 3 integrons among(More)
The association of interleukin-6 (IL-6)-174G > C (rs1800795) single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) with the risk of acquiring rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a relevant issue because of conflicting and consensus lacking reports published in literature. We investigated IL-6-174G > C promoter polymorphism in 34 RA patients, attending a tertiary care hospital in(More)
