The management of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is undergoing continual change and refinement, fuelled by recent advances in this field. Although many studies have documented the benefits of these recent advances but definite recommendations are lacking. Also, injudicious use of some of these strategies may be counterproductive, underscoring the(More)
Changes in the energy metabolism of Ehrlich ascites tumour (EAT) cells induced by treatment with 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) alone and in combination with other metabolic modulators, were studied using in vivo nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Accumulation of 2-DG-6-phosphate (2-DG-6-P) and cellular energy status as reflected in the ratio of beta(More)
A search for associated production of charginos and neutralinos is performed using data recorded with the D0 detector at a pp center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. This analysis considers final states with missing transverse energy and three charged leptons, of which at least two are electrons or muons. No evidence for(More)
We have performed a search for neutral Higgs bosons produced in association with bottom quarks in pp collisions, using 260 pb-1 of data collected with the D0 detector in Run II of the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The cross sections for these processes are enhanced in many extensions of the standard model (SM), such as in its minimal supersymmetric extension(More)
Additional evidence for the rare kaon decay K+-->pi+nu(nu) has been found in a new data set with comparable sensitivity to the previously reported result. One new event was observed in the pion momentum region examined, 211<P<229 MeV/c, bringing the total for the combined data set to two. Including all data taken, the backgrounds were estimated to(More)
Human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is a major cause of cervix cancer, but a number of infected women do not develop invasive lesions, suggesting that HPV infection in itself is not a sufficient factor and that other cofactors, such as smoking, play an important role in development of cervix cancer. Alongside active cigarette smoking, passive smoking is(More)
Cherubism is a disease that usually affects the jaws in the paediatric population, mostly below five years of age. Radiologically, it closely resembles fibrous dysplasia and other giant cell lesions of the mandible. Computed tomography (CT) is helpful in defining the true extent of cherubic lesions, which is often not possible on radiographs due to the(More)
Haematoporphyrin (HP), a photosensitiser used for photodynamic therapy (PDT) of tumours, has been observed to affect the cellular energy metabolism both in the absence and presence of light. The effects of HP alone and in combination with 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) on photosensitisation-induced bioenergetic changes in yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) were(More)
Academic staff of Lucknow University (India) and its various faculties were questioned to know their attitudes and beliefs regarding various anti-smoking measures, using a questionnaire based on WHO guidelines. Of the male teachers 21.4% were current smokers and 12.3% were ex-smokers. Non-smokers were in greater agreement with various anti-smoking measures(More)
We report the observation of the X(3872) in the J/psipi(+)pi(-) channel, with J/psi decaying to mu(+)mu(-), in pp collisions at sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV. Using approximately 230 pb(-1) of data collected with the Run II D0 detector, we observe 522+/-100 X(3872) candidates. The mass difference between the X(3872) state and the J/psi is measured to be(More)
