Patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are usually obese and concurrent obesity results into activation of the renin–angiotensin-system (RAS) which is a risk factor for diabetic nephropathy (DN). Gene–gene interaction between acetyl-coenzymeA carboxylase beta (ACACβ) gene, which is involved in fatty acid metabolism and angiotensin II receptors (AGTR1) gene,(More)
As India will ranks first in diabetes now and will continue to do so in 2025, we must prevent the disease by various measures. Before setting the programmes, we should have ample data on the population's knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) of diabetes. There are some epidemiological studies from southern India, Mumbai and north India, but there is no KAP(More)
Indians undergoing socioeconomic and lifestyle transitions will be maximally affected by epidemic of type 2 diabetes (T2D). We conducted a two-stage genome-wide association study of T2D in 12,535 Indians, a less explored but high-risk group. We identified a new type 2 diabetes-associated locus at 2q21, with the lead signal being rs6723108 (odds ratio 1.31;(More)
AIMS To conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies in order to assess the association between Type 1 diabetes and fractures. BACKGROUND The risk of fracture in men and women with Type 1 diabetes has not been studied in a large prospective well designed cohort. METHODS Data were selected from Medline and Embase and abstracts(More)
One of the main objectives of the DARPA High Productivity Computing Systems (HPCS) program is to reassess the way we define and measure performance, programmability, portability, robustness and ultimately productivity in the High Performance Computing (HPC) domain. This article describes the Scalable Synthetic Compact Applications (SSCA) benchmark suite, a(More)
BACKGROUND Data comparing pregnancy outcome in hyperthyroid women with euthyroid women are scarce. Hence, this study was carried out to assess the maternal and fetal outcome in pregnant women with hyperthyroidism to ascertain the effect of disease on pregnancy. METHODOLOGY This retrospective study was conducted over a period of 28 years. We compared the(More)
BACKGROUND Sexual side effects are commonly associated with serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI) therapy. The mechanism underlying SRI-induced sexual dysfunction has been hypothesized to be mediated by direct serotonergic effects. Evidence from open-label reports suggests that cyproheptadine, nefazodone, mirtazapine, and mianserin, which block one or more(More)
Star-P ‡ is an interactive parallel scientific computing environment. It aims to make parallel programming more accessible. Star-P borrows ideas from Matlab*P [3], but is a new development. Currently only a Matlab interface for Star-P is available, but it is not limited to being a parallel Matlab. It combines all four parallel Matlab approaches in one(More)
