Urinary concentrations of certain biochemical constituents that play an active role in stone formation were determined in 2 h urine collections in healthy men and women (at four phases of the estrous cycle) to elucidate the sex difference in the incidence of urolithiasis. The excretion of the lithogenic substance, calcium, was higher in men than in women(More)
The idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) is a neurological disorder which accounts for approximately 30% of all epilepsy cases. Patients identified with IGE syndromes have pharmacoresponsive epilepsies without abnormal neurological symptoms, structural brain lesions and are of unknown origin. A genetic etiology to IGEs has been proposed. Gamma amino(More)
BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrinological disorders among women of reproductive age and the leading cause of female infertility. This study intends to evaluate the lipid profile, hormonal levels [free T3 (fT3), free T4 (fT4), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), insulin, luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle(More)
Certain minerals and trace elements are essential for the development of healthy nervous system. Altered serum levels of these elements may lead to the development of various diseases including epilepsy. The present study was designed to evaluate the association of serum calcium, magnesium, zinc and copper in the development of genetic generalized epilepsy(More)
Urinary lithogenic promoters and inhibitors were estimated in normal Indian men and women of young and old ages to understand the sex difference in the risk of stone disease. Young men displayed increased phosphate excretion and a higher mean calcium (both lithogenic promoters) and lower excretion of citrate (lithogenic inhibitor) compared to women of the(More)
Idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) is a common type of epilepsy. Strong support for a genetic role in IGE comes from twin and family studies. Several subtypes of IGE have been reported but families often have members affected with different subtypes. Major advances have been made in the understanding of genetic basis of monogenic inherited epilepsies.(More)
