Abstract:
Introduction: Ischemic heart disease ranked among the leading causes of death worldwide. Several biological and genetic risk factors associated with acute coronary syndrome. By addressing the risk factors, it is possible to prevent most of the cardiovascular diseases and contribute to the reduction of complications of acute coronary syndrome. Material and Methods: Our study is a prospective study that was conducted to the main military hospital of instruction of Tunis. Recruitment involved 122 coronary (n = 122) and 705 controls (n = 705) totaling a population of 827 subjects. Data collection concerned socio-demographic characteristics, anthropometric measurements, habits and lifestyle, health status and biological assessment. Results: Our study reported a high prevalence of cardiovascular classic risk factor particularly overweight (62.3%), diabetes (63.1%) and hypertension (50%). In 55% of coronary patients, moderate to intermediate hyperhomocysteinemia was found, but it appears to be an independent risk factor. The results of our study show a significant difference in the genotypic frequencies of the C677T mutation in the MTHFR gene between the two populations, cases and controls. Conclusion: Acute coronary syndromes are the leading cause of sudden death in adults. The evaluation of risk factors after acute coronary syndrome episode is essential for a better management according to the recommendations of learned societies and standards of good practice.

Abstract: The need for a consistent therapeutic approach to tendon injury repair is long overdue. Patients with tendon microtears or full ruptures are eligible for a wide range of invasive and non invasive interventions, often subjectively decided by the physician. Surgery produces the best outcomes, and while studies have been conducted to optimize graft constructs and to track outcomes, the data from these studies have been inconclusive on the whole. What has been established is a clear understanding of healthy tendon architecture and the inherent process of healing. With this knowledge, tissue regeneration efforts have achieved immense progress in scaffold design, cell line selection, and, more recently, the appropriate use of cytokines and growth factors. This paper evaluates the plasticity of bone-marrow-derived stem cells and the elasticity of recently developed biomaterials towards tendon regeneration efforts. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), hematopoietic progenitor cells, and poly(1,8-octanediol co-citrate) scaffolds (POC) are discussed in the context of established grafting strategies. With POC scaffolds to cradle the growth of MSCs and hematopoietic progenitor cells, developing a fibroelastic network guided by cytokines and growth factors may contribute towards consistent graft constructs, enhanced functionality, and better patient outcomes. 1. Introduction Sports-related tendon and ligament injuries account for a significant portion of patient presentations, accounting for many physician hours in primary care, radiology, orthopedics, and physical therapy. The function of concentrating muscle force renders tendons and ligaments susceptible to overuse syndromes and stress injuries, with pathologies spanning across three grades [1]. These are overstretching (grade I, no pain and,no joint instability), partial tears (grade II, severe pain with joint instability), and complete tears (grade III, severe pain during injury, followed by no pain). Complete tears occur most often within the substance of collagen fibers, particularly during episodes of fast loading onto tendons and ligaments. In addition, degeneration and rupture of tendons have been associated with hypovascularity in certain regions of tissues like the posterior tibial tendon [2]. Osseous insertion points are hypervascular, in contrast to other regions prone to stress and pressure, which are avascular. This explains the tendency of tendons to rupture within the substance 1.1.

Abstract: changes in endogenous gibberellic acid (ga) levels were determined in developing seeds and pods of pigeon pea (cajanus cajan). antibodies against ga3 were raised in rabbits and indirect elisa developed to estimate ga level. two varieties, black seeded variety (v1) and b.d.n2 (v2), were selected on the basis of their seed index value. the pod length and number of seeds per pod were significantly different for the two varieties. dry weight, water content (wc), rate of water accumulation, rate of dry matter accumulation (dma), and ga content in pod and seed were all larger in v1 than in v2. in both varieties, higher ga content was observed during cell elongation and dma phases, respective to their varietal differences in growth traits. relationships between wc and rate of dma, and wc and ga differed significantly between the two varieties. the results suggest a role of ga and wc in sink-size development in both varieties studied.

International Journal of Distributed and Parallel Systems , 2012,
Abstract: VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is a growing technology during last decade. It provides the audio, video streaming facility on successful implementation in the network. However, it provides the text transport facility over the network. Due to implementation of it the cost effective solution, it can be developed for the intercommunication among the employees of a prestigious organization. The proposed idea has been implemented on the audio streaming area of the VoIP technology. In the audio streaming, the security vulnerabilities are possible on the VoIP server during communication between two parties. In the proposed model, first the VoIP system has been implemented with IVR (Interactive Voice Response) as a case study and with the implementation of the security parameters provided to the asterisk server which works as a VoIP service provider. The asterisk server has been configured with different security parameters like VPN server, Firewall iptable rules, Intrusion Detection and Intrusion Prevention System. Every parameter will be monitored by the system administrator of the VoIP server along with the MySQL database. The system admin will get every update related to the attacks on the server through Mail server attached to the asterisk server. The main beauty of the proposed system is VoIP server alone is configured as a VoIP server, IVR provider, Mail Server with IDS and IPS, VPN server, connection with database server in a single asterisk server inside virtualization environment. The VoIP system is implemented for a Local Area Network inside the university system.

Lodhia M,Bhatt K,Thaker V
Indian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: Essential oils extracted from flower petals of palmarosa ( Cymbopogon martini ), evening primrose ( Primula rosea ), lavender ( Lavandula angustifolia ) and tuberose ( Polianthus tuberosa ) were tested for their antibacterial activities against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Different concentrations of each essential oil ranging from 10-100% were tested. Both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria were found susceptible to the studied flower essential oils. With increase in concentration of essential oil, increase in zone of inhibition was observed thus dose-dependent response was clear for each essential oil. Essential oil extracted from Cymbopogon martini showed the highest activity against both gram positive and gram negative bacteria among the tested essential oils.

Thaker Darshit,Stafford Bruce,Gaffney Luke
Indian Journal of Palliative Care , 2010,
Abstract: Mr. P was a 57-year-old man who presented with symptoms of bowel obstruction in the setting of a known metastatic pancreatic cancer. Diagnosis of malignant bowel obstruction was made clinically and radiologically and he was treated conservatively (non-operatively)with octreotide, metoclopromide and dexamethasone, which provided good control over symptoms and allowed him to have quality time with family until he died few weeks later with liver failure. Bowel obstruction in patients with abdominal malignancy requires careful assessment. The patient and family should always be involved in decision making. The ultimate goals of palliative care (symptom management, quality of life and dignity of death) should never be forgotten during decision making for any patient.

Abstract: Background: At tertiary care hospital, many women with obstetric complications are referred not only from private clinics/hospitals, but also from nearby primary health centers and urban health centers. There are women who come for delivery, who have not taken any ante natal care (ANC). Complication can arise at any time during pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal period and in absence of intervention, there is a high feto-maternal morbidity and mortality. With every maternal death there are many life threatening complications known as ‘maternal near miss’.Objectives: 1.To analyze causes of referrals of unregistered patients coming to our institute.2.To analyze pregnancy outcomes, Obstetric complications and maternal mortality in registered and unregistered women coming to our institute. 3.To analyze near miss cases and to analyze causes of maternal mortality and reasons of delay. Methods:This retrospective comparative study was conducted after due permission from the Scientific Advisory Committee and Institutional Ethics Committee of Sheth V S Medical Research Foundation Trust and data was collected as per pre-tested structured proforma from December 2009 to February 2010. Analysis of 1171 patients was done. Results: Out of total 1171 women included in the study, 952 (81.2 %) were registered and 219 (18.7%) were unregistered women. Proportion of unregistered women who had less than 3 ante natal visits 109 (49.7%) was significantly higher compared to registered women 95 (9.9%) (x2 = 195.97; P<0.0001). Severe anaemia was found to be significantly higher in unregistered women 18 (8.2%) as compared to registered women 1 (0.1%) (x2 = 68.442; P<0.0001). Transfusion of blood or other blood product was significantly higher in unregistered women 44 (20%) compared to registered women 31 (3.2%) (x2 = 84.177; P<0.0001) . Because of multi-disciplinary team approach at our institute, many women with complications in unregistered group could be saved (maternal near miss). No Maternal Mortality was reported in registered group. Maternal mortality in unregistered group was due to delay in deciding to seek care and due to delay in reaching appropriate care. Total of 1139 live births were reported during the study period, hence maternal mortality ratio (MMR) of study was 439. Conclusion: All women need access to antenatal care, institutional delivery and post partum care. Complication can arise at any time in absence of intervention; there is a high feto-maternal morbidity and mortality. Hence, delays in deciding to seek care and delay in reaching appropriate care must be

National Journal of Medical Research , 2012,
Abstract: Background: Pain management after tonsillectomy in children remains a dilemma for anaesthesiologist. The study was designed to compare the effect of pre-incisional infiltration of Bupivacaine (0.25%) versus Diclofenac suppository on postoperative pain relief in children. Methodology: Fifty patients of American Society of Anaesthesiology grade I, aged between 1 and 15 years undergoing elective tonsillectomy were selected. They were randomly divided equally into group A and B. Five minutes before incision, peritonsillar fossa were infiltrated with 5 ml Bupivacaine(0.25%) in group A patients. Group B received Diclofenac suppository 2mg/kg after induction. Intra operatively all patients were observed for vital parameters. Post-operatively all the patients were observed for 24 hours for analgesia using observer pain scale, analgesic requirement, vital data and other complications. Result: Diclofenac suppository is a better option for post-operative analgesia in paediatric patients undergoing tonsillectomy as compared to bupivacaine infiltration as there were significant difference in pain score (P<0.05) after two hours onwards post operatively. Complications like bradycardia, hypotension, allergic reaction and convulsion were not found in either group. Conclusion: Diclofenac suppository is a better option as compared to pre-incisional bupivacaine infiltration because of its convenience and duration of analgesia.
