Shriram, Varsha - - 2010
Background & objectives: The multiple drug resistance (MDR) is a serious health problem and major challenge to the global drug discovery programmes. Most of the genetic determinants that confer resistance to antibiotics are located on R-plasmids in bacteria. The present investigation was undertaken to investigate the ability of organic extract ...
Chhabra, S.K. - - 2010
Background & objectives: Exposure to ozone and asthma are both associated with increased oxidative stress. Exposure to ozone therefore, may potentiate the airway response to allergens. We undertook this study to investigate the effect of ozone exposure on airway response to ovalbumin in sensitized guinea pigs and its modulation by ...

Background & objectives: Antituberculosis (anti-TB) drug induced hepatotoxicity (DIH) is the most common side effect leading to interruption of therapy. Wide variations have been found in the reported incidence of hepatotoxicity during short-course chemotherapy. Several risk factors for hepatotoxicity have been suggested in previous studies. We undertook a prospective case-control ...
Agarwal, Dipti - - 2010
Background & objectives: There is an increasing incidence of abdominal tuberculosis with the advent of HIV infection. This study was aimed at determining the pattern of presentation of abdominal tuberculosis on ultrasonography (USG) in HIV positive patients.

Background & objectives: An outbreak of influenza was investigated between June 24 and July 30, 2009 in a residential school at Panchgani, Maharashtra, India. The objectives were to determine the aetiology, study the clinical features in the affected individuals and, important epidemiological and environmental factors. The nature of public health ...
Ramu, P. - - 2010
Background & objectives: Several studies reported the polymorphisms of [[beta].sub.1]-adrenergic receptor gene in healthy volunteers and its influence on cardiovascular disorders. We investigated the genotype and allele frequencies of Ser49Gly and Arg389Gly polymorphism in healthy volunteers of South Indian Tamilian population vis-a-vis other major ethnic groups.
Kasapoglu, B. - - 2010
Background & objectives: The aim of this study is to know if the liver function tests (LFT), especially gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT), have a predictive value in diagnosis of metabolic syndrome (MS).
Mahdi, Bijanzadeh - - 2010
Background & objectives: Family history is an important risk factor for the development of asthma, contingent upon genetic and environment interaction. Since there is paucity of data on asthma inheritance in Indian population, the present study was undertaken to investigate the inheritance patterns of asthma and the effect of family ...
Anantharaman, R. - - 2010
Background & objective: The efficacy of the combination of angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors in patients of type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) with nephropathy is debatable. The antialbuminuric efficacy of dual blockade in patients of type 1 DM with micro- or macroabuminuria were evaluated.
Zakeri, Sedigheh - - 2010
Background & objectives: Species identification and information on transmission pattern of malaria parasite in any malaria endemic area is key to success for a malaria control programme. In this investigation, malaria diagnosis using molecular method was used to assess the transmission pattern of malaria parasite in three malaria endemic regions: ...
Nandi, S.K. - - 2010
Treatment of delayed union, malunion, and nonunion is a challenge to the orthopaedic surgeons in veterinary and human fields. Apart from restoration of alignment and stable fixation, in many cases adjunctive measures such as bone-grafting or use of bone-graft substitutes are of paramount importance. Bone-graft materials usually have one or ...

McNiel, Melinda - - 2010
Background: Most infant feeding studies present infant formula use as 'standard' practice, supporting perceptions of formula feeding as normative and hindering translation of current research into counseling messages supportive of exclusive breastfeeding. To promote optimal counseling, and to challenge researchers to use exclusive breastfeeding as the standard, we have reviewed ...
Forde, Karen - - 2010
Information about local breastfeeding rates and predictors of breastfeeding outcomes can assist with improving health planning and community support. Longitudinal infant feeding data were collected during scheduled contacts with a Community Child Health Nurse and a telephone survey at 6 months for 3828 infants in Perth, Western Australia. Breastfeeding rates ...

Objectives. To establish whether survivors of penetrating trunk trauma recover adequately and spontaneously following critical illness.
Tintinger, Gregory - - 2010
Objectives. The study was designed to evaluate the role of soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells (s-TREM-1) measured in samples of endotracheal aspirates from critically ill, intubated patients as a marker of inflammation or pneumonia.
