- The risk factors for hypertension among medical and dental students at a private medical college: Findings from a cross-sectional study
Abstract : Background: Prevalence of hypertension in medical students in Nepal is not well defined. Risk of hypertension depends on life style, which is the result of person’s knowledge and practice adopted at a young age. This study aims to determine the risk factors of hypertension among first and second year medical and ..
- Stress symptoms among students in an elementary school in Kashan, Iran
Abstract: Background Some people think that children’s world is full of games and free from any tension. However, children might feel mental and emotional pressure due to different stressors. Therefore, this study was conducted to assess the stress symptoms among students in elementary school in Kashan, Iran. Methods A cro..
- Gait Analysis in Uner Tan Syndrome Cases with Key Symptoms of Quadrupedal Locomotion, Mental Impairment, and Dysarthric or No Speech
Abstract: Introduction: Uner Tan syndrome (UTS) consists of quadrupedal locomotion (QL), impaired intelligence and dysarthric or no speech. Previously, I described the walk of cases with UTS as diagonal sequenc..
- Crossed Steinmann Pin Fixation In Supracondylar Femur Fractures In Adults A Case Series
Abstract: Supracondylar femur fractures in adults is a complex fracture constitutes approximately 1% of total fractures and 4-7% of all femoral fractures (Kolmert, 1982)1. There is a bimodal distribution, with ..
- Induction of labour in women with nonscarred uterus using balloon catheter: Randomised controlled trial
Abstract : Induction of labour is a common obstetric procedure. At present, different methods are used for induction of labour in women. One of these methods is Foley catheter, which is a low cost method that can induce labour with less risk to the fetus. This is one of the first studies in the Middle East aiming to study efficac..
- A-phenylethylamine, a small molecule with a large impact
Abstract : During a screen of bacterial nutrients as inhibitors of Escherichia coli O157:H7 biofilm, the Pruβ research team made an intriguing observation: among 95 carbon and 95 nitrogen sources tested, β-phenylethylamine (PEA) performed best at reducing bacterial cell counts and biofilm amounts, when supplemented to l..
- Is Your Journal Indexed in PubMed? Relevance of PubMed in Biomedical Scientific Literature Today
Introduction: The arrival and spread of internet has enabled development of better bibliographic scientific databases with significantly improved capacity for storage and retrieval. In recent years, electronic database searching has become the default mode of bio-medical information retrieval. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) ..
- The Potential Usefulness of Pre and Post Operative Risk Group Stratification in Predicting PSA Failure after Radical Prostatectomy for Localised Prostate Cancer
Abstract: Background: There is no clear cut way of predicting exactly prior to radical prostatectomy which patients would subsequently develop Biochemical failure post operatively.Aims: To investigate the usefulness of Risk Group stratification based upon: pre-operative PSA, clinical staging and Gleason score assessment of prost..
- Comparison of Thrombin Generation Assay (TGA) and Non-Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (NAPTT) for the Assessment of Enhanced Procoagulant Activity in Immunoglobulin Solutions
Abstract: The recent revision of the European Pharmacopoeia stipulates that all intravenous immunoglobulin solutions must be investigated with respect to procoagulant activity. Accordingly, the manufacturing processes must be validated regarding the removal of such compounds, to ensure a minimized thromboembolic risk for patient..
- Duality of stochasticity and natural selection shape the ecology-driven pattern of social interactions: the fall of Hamilton's rule
Abstract: Both competition and cooperation are pervasive at all levels of biological organization. Traditionally, the theory of evolution, understood as “red in tooth and claw” is challenged by the mere existence of cooperation. As a plausible explanation of this conundrum, Hamilton’s rule has dominated sociobi..
- The Germ-soma Conflict Theory of Aging and Death: Obituary to the "Evolutionary Theories of Aging"
Abstract: Regarding aging, the scientific community persists in a state of collective schizophrenia. This state is owed to the so-called “evolutionary theories of aging”. According to these theories, aging, following the peri-/postreproductive decline of selection pressure, is posited to be haphazard, not selected fo..
- High Resolution Melt Curve Analysis- An Innovative Approach for Molecular Diagnosis
Introduction : High Resolution Melting (HRM) is a homogeneous, extremely powerful technique for SNP genotyping, mutation scanning and sequence scanning in DNA samples . Enabled by the recent availability of improved double-stranded DNA (dsDNA)–binding dyes and next-generation real-time PCR instrumentation, High Resolution Me..
