Klebsiella oxytoca is an opportunistic pathogen implicated in various clinical diseases in animals and humans. Studies suggest that in humans K. oxytoca exerts its pathogenicity in part through a cytotoxin. However, cytotoxin production in animal isolates of K. oxytoca and its pathogenic properties have not been characterized. Furthermore, neither the(More)
Factor-XI deficiency (FXID) is inherited as autosomal lethal recessive disorder of carrier Holstein–Friesian bulls. A 76 base pair segment insertion into exon 12 in Factor-XI gene causes FXID in cattle. Keeping this in view the present study was conducted to screen breeding bulls of both indigenous and exotic breeds for mutation in Factor-XI gene and to(More)

BACKGROUND AND AIM Concern about the grim nature of postoperative acid aspiration syndrome grew among the anesthesiologist over the years warranting the need for pre-emptive intervention. The aim of the study is to compare the effects of preoperative oral ranitidine versus pantoprazole given in regulating gastric pH in elective surgery. METHODS This(More)
BACKGROUND Propofol (2,6-di-isopropylphenol) used for the induction of anesthesia often causes mild to severe pain or discomfort on injection, for which various methods have been tried, but with conflicting results. OBJECTIVE The present study involved pretreatment with lignocaine, fentanyl and placebo for prevention of pain on propofol injection to(More)
OBJECTIVE In childhood Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), the clinical profiles using intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) in addition to supportive care were studied. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective analysis of 139 children with severe GBS admitted to our respiratory care unit managed with the IVIg as an adjunct intervention to conventional(More)
BACKGROUND Post-operative cognitive dysfunction is the subtle cerebral complication temporally seen following surgery. The aim of this study was to compare the influence of either general anesthesia (GA) or epidural anesthesia (EA) on the early post-operative neurocognitive outcome in elderly (>59 years) subjects undergoing hip and knee surgery. METHODS A(More)
