“Holoprosencephaly, Newly Born Baby Disorder”

This article tell about the recent advances in clinical management of HPE (Holoprosencephaly). HPE is a structural neurological disorder in which brain is unable to divide into their hemispheres and ventricles, basically it is caused due to chromosomal abnormality and a single gene mutation changing trisomy 13 to trisomy 18, on basis of genetics causes patient may suffer with different form of holoprosencephaly including simple to severe form.

Degree of Malignancy of T-Cell Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia Related to Autofluorescence in an EL4-Based Model

T cell acute lymphocytic leukemia (T-ALL) is an aggressive hematologic malignancy in terms of its pathology and populations. It is important to understand the phenomenon of autofluorescence in living cells because normal and cancer cells can be distinguished by this feature. However, the autofluorescence link to T-ALL is poorly understood.

Clinical Significance of microRNA Polymorphisms and Expression Profiles in Oral Cancer Development

MicroRNAs (miRNA) are potent regulators, controlling multiple biological processes, including cell growth, differentiation, cell death, development and immune responses. With emerging data supporting that miRNAs play a central role in gene dysregulation in human malignancies, unraveling the miRNA genetic variations in cancer is essential and critical if we want to develop better diagnostic and prognostic system for our patients.

Ulcer with Fatal Perforation of A Gastric Blind Pouch: A Rare and Un-Expected Complication After A Salvage Reconstruction for Esophagus

We present a case of total esophageal reconstruction with a free Jejunal flap in a patient with a history of esophagectomy and two previous failed attempts at reconstruction. Despite the technique here described offers a reliable option when the stomach and colon are not available, the success of the reconstruction might be compromised by the onset of a perforated ulcer at the gastric blind pouch related to previous failed gastric pull-up (GPU) After a major reconstructive surgery of long hours, gastric pouch may develop ulcer with perforation and fatal empyema due to stress, although the severe complication is rare.

Repellency Activity of Synthetic Blends of Semio-Chemicals from Xylopia aethiopica and Dennittia tripetala against Prostephanus truncatus (Horn)

Laboratory bioassays were conducted in Calabar, Nigeria, to evaluate repellencies of the essential oils extracted from Xylopia aethiopica and Dennittia tripetala fruits, chemical constituents of the oils and their blends as well as compare repellencies of the blends with those of the constituents using a 3-day old adult Prostephanus truncatus, a primary pest of stored maize and dried cassava chips, cultured in the laboratory. Fresh fruits of X. aethiopica and D. tripetala, 100 g each was collected, washed and dried, then pounded separately using laboratory pestle and mortar for the extraction of essential oils

First Record of the Sea Urchin Sphaerechinus Granularis (Lamarck, 1816) in a Coastal Lagoon (Tunisia - Western Mediterranean)

This work presents the first record of the regular sea urchin Sphaerechinus granularis in a coastal lagoon in the Mediterranean. S. granularis (Echinoidea: Echinodermata) was found for the first time in Bizerte lagoon (North Western Tunisia) associated with a population of the sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus at 5,5 m deep and on sandy mud substratum with Cymodocea nodosa beds. This finding demonstrates that the species can live in a semi enclosed Mediterranean ecosystem where the environmental conditions (i.e. temperature and salinity) are very variable.

Inherited Thrombophilia Could be a Possible Rare Etiology to Result in Cirrhosis: A Case Report and Literature Review

We reported on a cirrhosis patient who was demonstrated on gene sequencing to have inherited thrombophilia. A 33-year-old male patient with 8-year recurrent abdominal distention, symptom aggravated with 4-month pitting edema of lower extremities bilaterally, was identified decompensated cirrhosis in local hospital.

The Use of Gingipain DNA Vaccine Against Virulence of Porphyromonas Gingivalis: A Literature Review

Porphyromonas gingivalis (P. gingivalis) is a primary etiologic agent of generalized aggressive and chronic forms of periodontitis. It releases toxins called ‘gingipains’.Gingipains, (Arginine-and Lysine-specific cysteine proteinases) are proteases that are critical virulence factors in progression of periodontitis and degradation of cytokines expressed during inflammation. HRgpA and RgpB (products of two distinct but related genes) induce vascular permeability by activation of the kallikrein/kinin pathway and activating the blood coagulation system which in turn induces gingival crevicular fluid production and progression of inflammation leading to alveolar bone loss.

Drugs of Abuse and Addiction - Overview and Current Status

Today, both nonprescription and prescription drugs used by people for disease treatment, illicit or reward purposes have diverse effects on health permanently or long-lastingly. The effects may even continue and lead to the death or disabilities in child when a person is no longer use the substance. Substances that cause addiction trigger intense feeling of euphoria then lead to loss of control of self-behavior and perception.

Bernoulli Equation in the Mitral Valve of Heart

In the past decade, finite element modeling of complete heart valves has greatly aided evaluation of heart valve surgery, design of bioprosthetic valve replacements, and general understanding of healthy and abnormal cardiac function. Such a model must be based on an accurate description of the mechanical behavior of the valve material. It is essential to calculate velocity/displacement, geometrical indices and strain rate/strain at a component level that is to work at the cellular level.

Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM): Short Term Motor Outcome of Hospital Admitted Patients

Introduction: Among the neuroinflammatory disorder of CNS, Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is a multifocal, subacute or acute onset disease that has got current interest of neurologists for its better outcome. Very few studies have been carried out on ADEM particularly in adults of our country. So we performed the study to describe short term motor outcome of hospital admitted ADEM patients.

Postural Impairment of Adults and Adolescents Cerebral Palsy Inpatients at the Retaguarda Hospital of Ribeirão Preto-SP

Introduction: Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a condition that described a group of permanent movement and postural development disorders, leading to activity limitations as a result of non-progressive distress during foetal or infant brain development. The non-pregressive distress is frequently associated to sensation, perception, cognition, communication and behavioural disorders, by epilepsy or by secondary muscle distress.

The Effects of the Film Thickness and Roughness in the Anodization Process of Very Thin Aluminum Films

The anodization of aluminum foils having micrometer thickness is a common process and results in hexagonally self-ordered alumina membranes. However, anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) membranes fabricated from nanometer-thin films present new challenges to the anodization process, since aluminum films adheres poorly on supporting substrates and the smoothness of the film is highly related to the kind of substrate.

Anodic Oxidation of Titanium in Sulphuric Acid and Phosphoric Acid Electrolytes

Anodisation of pure titanium has been carried out in sulphuric and in phosphoric acid solutions at potentials ranging from 50 to 150V. The SEM and AFM morphological analysis indicates that, within this potential range, oxidation in sulphuric acid solution produces better developed mesoporous oxide layers.
