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 Quality of life is the subject of growing interest and investigation. AIMS To develop and validate a short, self-report quality of life questionnaire (the Schizophrenia Quality of Life Scale, SQLS). METHOD People with schizophrenia in Liverpool were recruited via the NHS. Items, generated from in-depth interviews, were developed into an(More)
BACKGROUND National malaria death rates are difficult to assess because reliably diagnosed malaria is likely to be cured, and deaths in the community from undiagnosed malaria could be misattributed in retrospective enquiries to other febrile causes of death, or vice-versa. We aimed to estimate plausible ranges of malaria mortality in India, the most(More)
A five-year epidemiologic study of patients attending a malaria clinic in Delhi was conducted to find the relapse rate of infections with Plasmodium vivax, its seasonal correlation between the primary infection and subsequent relapses, the duration of the incubation period, and the patterns of relapse. By our definition, the relapse rate ranged from 23% to(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)

Malaria was nearly eradicated from India in the early 1960s but the disease has re-emerged as a major public health problem. Early set backs in malaria eradication coincided with DDT shortages. Later in the 1960s and 1970s malaria resurgence was the result of technical, financial and operational problems. In the late 1960s malaria cases in urban areas(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)
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)
BACKGROUND Standard semen parameters have proven poor at predicting the outcomes of IVF treatment cycles. As recent studies suggest that the male genome may play an important role in early embryogenesis, this study attempts to correlate the level of sperm DNA damage in fresh semen and prepared sperm with the outcomes of conventional IVF treatment cycles.
