Ovarian tissue storage at low temperatures is a promising new method for protecting young cancer patients from the sterilizing effects of chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy. Tissue can be stored and returned to the body in due course as a thin cortical graft since the primordial follicles are distributed peripherally and are relatively resistant to ischaemia.(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS The AIM-II Trial included patients with nondysplastic Barrett's esophagus (NDBE) treated with radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Complete eradication of NDBE (complete response-intestinal metaplasia [CR-IM]) was achieved in 98.4 % of patients at 2.5 years. We report the proportion of patients demonstrating CR-IM at 5-year follow-up. (More)
A total of 1,151 endophytic fungal isolates representing 29 taxa were isolated from symptom-less, surface-sterilized segments of stem, leaf, petiole, and root of Tinospora cordifolia which had been collected at three locations differing in air pollution in India (Ramnagar, Banaras Hindu University, Maruadih) during three seasons (summer, monsoon, winter).(More)
A kinetic study of the reaction of NO with O2 in aqueous solution has been carried out using a colorimetric method based on a pH indicator and a stopped-flow spectrophotometer. The reaction is second order in NO concentration and first order in O2 concentration; the overall third order rate constant is 6.3 (+/- 0.4) x 10(6) (M-1)2 s-1. Model calculations(More)
Pregnancies achieved from oocyte, sperm or embryo donation are unique, since they have resulted from donor gametes that are immunologically foreign to the mother. Thus, studying the obstetric outcome of such pregnancies may shed some light on the pathophysiology of preeclampsia, particularly in women conceiving with donated embryos, since the entire fetal(More)
Kinetics of NO dissociation were characterized for three five-coordinate systems, heme-NO, HSA-heme-NO (human serum albumin), GC-NO (soluble guanylate cyclase), and for the six-coordinate system, Im-heme-NO. Nitrosyl myoglobin was redetermined for comparison. Previously known, six-coordinate R and T state nitrosyl hemoglobins are also included in the(More)
BACKGROUND The majority of patient with post-stroke Vascular Cognitive Impairment (VCI) have Vascular Cognitive Impairment No Dementia (VCIND). The Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) has been criticized as a poor screening test for VCIND due to insensitivity to visuospatial and executive function impairments. The Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) was(More)
The Indian National Malaria Eradication Programme (NMEP) is reporting 2.5 to 3 million malaria cases, and about 1,000 malaria deaths annually. Malaria in the northeastern states is stable and in the peninsular India unstable. There are six major and three minor malaria vectors, of which Anopheles culicifacies transmits malaria in rural areas and An.(More)
