ternarea collected 3-MA from different regions of the country was assessed using 25 RAPD primers and HPLC analysis respectively. Only 7 primers amplified a total of 71 reproducible, clear and scorable bands of which 32(45%) were polymorphic.
The number of RAPD bands per primer was in the range of 7-14 with an average of 10 bands per primer. The genetic distance ranged from 0.02 to 0.28. A dendrogram based on UPGMA clustering method revealed two major clusters. Cluster 1 comprises of the accessions of North India while cluster 2 includes accessions of Central and South India. The Kaempferol content was 9.31-20.01 mg/g dw, being highest in the accession of Kurukshetra (Haryana). (c) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.”
“The traditional method of thoracoabdominal retroperitoneal
approach BKM120 in vitro requires dissection of diaphragm which bears potential complications such as postoperatively weakened abdominal breathing and dysfunction of diaphragm. Mini-open anterior instrumentation with diaphragm sparing is designed to minimize the damage to diaphragm and improve cosmesis. This study compared the traditional anterior instrumentation and mini-open anterior instrumentation under the hypothesis that both results in similar surgical outcomes in treating thoracolumbar scoliosis. In Group A, 38 patients with an average age of 16.5 years underwent mini-open anterior instrumentation with diaphragm sparing. The average standing coronal Cobb angle was 56.4A degrees in Group A. Thirty-eight patients with average age of 16.7 years in Group B received traditional open approach. The preoperative average Cobb angle was 55.8A
learn more degrees in Group B. The average correction rate of coronal curve was 78% in group A while 75% in group B. No statistical difference between the two groups in terms of coronal curve correction, sagittal profile restoration and estimated blood loss was observed. The operation time was significantly higher in Group A than that in Group B. All patients in the two groups had good healing of incisions without neurological and instrumental complications during minimal 2 year follow-up. In Groups A and B, two patients suffered from pleural effusion, respectively. The wedging of the vertebral discs distal to the lowest fused level occurred in three and four patients in Group A and B, respectively. One case in group B was found to be suspicious pseudoarthrosis without loss of correction. Mini-open anterior instrumentation with diaphragm sparing could minimize the surgical invasion as well as achieve similar clinical outcomes compared with classical anterior approach.”
“We are presenting data from the largest clinical trial on optical tomographic imaging of finger joints to date. Overall we evaluated 99 fingers of patients affected by rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 120 fingers from healthy volunteers. Using frequency-domain imaging techniques we show that sensitivities and specificities of 0.
