BACKGROUND Facial lipoatrophy is defined as the reduction in buccal and orbital fat pads along with a more global loss of fat within the subcutaneous tissue. It is the most common and distressing sign of human immunodeficiency virus-associated lipodystrophy. Injectable polyacrylamide hydrogel (Aquamid) is a synthetic nonbiodegradable polymer consisting of a(More)
GUIDELINES Viewpoints, pertaining to issues of general interest, are welcome, even if they are not related to items previously published. Viewpoints may present unique techniques, brief technology updates, technical notes, and so on. Viewpoints will be published on a space-available basis because they are typically less timesensitive than Letters and other(More)
Corticosterone and cortisol administered to Calotes versicolor significantly increased the concentrations of blood glucose and urea (liver and kidney), the specific activities of glucose-6-phosphatase (liver and kidney), and glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (liver and heart); they markedly reduced hepatic cholesterol level and did not change the activities(More)
Twelve t-butylperoxyamines (6-17) were synthesized as targeted antimalarials and evaluated for antimalarial activity in vivo against Plasmodium berghei in mice and in vitro against both chloroquine sensitive and chloroquine resistant strains of Plasmodium falciparum. Compound 8 was found to have highest potency with activity at 80 and 160mg/kg dose in vivo(More)
In Calotes versicolor, thyroidectomy did not alter the blood glucose level, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH liver and heart), acid phosphatase (Ac.Pase liver and kidney), and alkaline phosphatase (Alk.Pase liver and kidney) activities; significantly decreased the activities of glucose-6-phosphatase (G-6-Pase liver and kidney), glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase(More)
Restoration of a composite nasal defect with an aesthetically acceptable vascularized full-thickness soft tissue cover and a primary bone graft in a surgically unscarred area at the same stage requires that the flap have a complete formal inset from all the sides, for enhancement of the milieu interior. This article addresses such a situation, which(More)
Administration of L-thyroxine (T4) to thyroidectomized Calotes versicolor significantly increased the activity of glucose-6-phosphatase (G-6-Pase) (liver and kidney), the concentrations of blood glucose and total protein (liver and kidney), and decreased hepatic cholesterol when compared to thyroidectomized lizards. Propranolol injections in(More)
