In a study of 530 individuals with non-syndromic, sensorineural hearing loss, we identified 18 mutations at connexin 26 (Cx26), four of which are novel (-23G>T, I33T, 377_383dupTCCGCAT, W172R) and the remaining 14 (ivs1+1G>A, M1V, 35delG, W24X, I35S, V37I, R75W, W77X, 312del14, E120del, Q124X, Y136X, R143W, R184P) being mutations previously described.

Chemotherapy can be best used by understanding the principles of pharmacology, tumor biology, cellular kinetics and drug resistance. Here we try to focus on the major classes of chemotherapeutic drugs, their mechanisms of action, toxicities; and the therapeutic window.
Mutations in the autosomal genes TMPRSS3, TMC1, USHIC, CDH23 and TMIE are known to cause hereditary hearing loss. To study the contribution of these genes to autosomal recessive, non-syndromic hearing loss (ARNSHL) in India, we examined 374 families with the disorder to identify potential mutations. We found four mutations in TMPRSS3, eight in TMC1, ten in… (More)
OBJECTIVES Long-term mortality data for gastrointestinal (GI) bleeders is scarce in the literature. The aim of this prospective study was to determine the long-term mortality of patients admitted to two intensive care units with a primary diagnosis of GI bleeding. METHODS The charts of patients admitted to the medical intensive care unit (MICU) with GI… (More)
Fifty patients with histologically confirmed stage III breast cancer were enrolled in this study of doxorubicin 50 mg/m2 and docetaxel 75 mg/m2 intravenously infused over 1 hour every 21 days with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor for 4 cycles. This was followed by surgery (mastectomy or lumpectomy) and 4 more cycles of doxorubicin/docetaxel… (More)
We report the case of a 12-year-old boy who presented with a rapidly enlarging, painless mass behind the ear following trauma to the area. The mass was excised, and histopathologic and immunohistochemical evaluations revealed it to be an inflammatory pseudotumor. At 1 year postoperatively, the child exhibited no evidence of recurrence.
In recent scenario, mental stress analysis is important task. There are different methods used in the literature survey to extract the mental stress. Wavelet transform as transformation, Power, Energy, entropy, Co-variance, Standard deviation and Mean, as features and K nearest neighbor (KNN) or Back Propagation are commonly used to build mental stress… (More)
Tuberculosis continues to be a major public health problem. This disease has varying presenting features. We here present a case of primary tuberculosis of the nose with intracranial extension, a very rare presenting feature of tuberculosis.
OBJECTIVE To analyze the clinical presentations, laboratory investigation results, and histopathologic evaluation of tubercular cervical adenitis (TCA) in our population. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Tertiary health care centre. PATIENTS AND METHODS We studied 180 patients with TCA who were managed in the Department of Otolaryngology between… (More)
