We present a new model of natural language processing in which natural language parsing and generation are strongly interleaved tasks. Interleaving of parsing and generation is important if we assume that natural language understanding and production are not only performed in isolation but also work together to obtain subsentential interactions in text(More)
BACKGROUND Oxidative stress has been considered to be a pathogenic factor of diabetic complications including nephropathy. There are many controversies and limited studies regarding the antioxidant enzymes in diabetic nephropathy. AIM This study was to evaluate the levels of antioxidant enzymes and lipid peroxidation in Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM)(More)
BACKGROUND Clostridium difficile is an opportunistic human intestinal pathogen, and C. difficile infection (CDI) is one of the main causes of antibiotic-induced diarrhea and colitis. One successful approach to combat CDI, particularly recurrent form of CDI, is through transplantation of fecal microbiota from a healthy donor to the infected patient. In this(More)
In this paper, solutions to memory design issues in nanometer CMOS are presented. First, a comparative study between various sense-amplifiers is presented in 70nm CMOS technology. Impact of process variation is studied on the performance of these sense-amplifiers. An improved bit-line leakage compensation scheme is proposed to ensure proper sensing in(More)
AIMS To compare waist circumference (WC), body mass index (BMI), waist hip ratio (WHR), and waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) and define an appropriate cut-off, which is most closely predictive of the non-adipose components of the IDF metabolic syndrome (MetS) definition. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 3,042 adults (1,693 in rural area and 1,349 in urban area)(More)
OBJECTIVE We evaluated the thyroid function tests in individuals with metabolic syndrome to explore the possibility of thyroid receptor resistance. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was a cross-sectional study. It included 40 patients (group I) and 20 healthy individuals served as controls (group II). Patients in group I fulfilled the three or more of the(More)
BACKGROUND Ageing is associated with an accumulation of free radical damage, which leads to physiological and clinical modifications. The study aims to find out the status of lipid profile, antioxidant enzymes, malondialdehyde in geriatric population. PATIENTS/METHODS The study was conducted on 150 subjects (75 healthy control between the ages of 20-30(More)
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) features of mediastinal paraganglioma have not been described. In this paper, we report a female patient presented with cough and chest pain without any neuroendocrinal symptoms. Final diagnosis of mediastinal paraganglioma was made on thoracoscopic biopsy and immunohistochemistry after EUS-guided fine needle aspiration. EUS(More)
Retiform hemangioendothelioma is considered as a low grade angiosarcoma, commonly seen in 2(nd)-4(th) decade of life. The youngest patient reported is of 9 years of age. A 9-year-old boy was presented with an asymptomatic red patch on the chest since 1 year. There was an erythematous patch with nodule of about 5 mm near the distal margin. Biopsy from the(More)
