Interval Debulking Surgery in Ovarian Cancer
Meeta Singh,Rajshree Jha,Samjhana Dhakal
Nepal Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology , 2011, DOI: 10.3126/njog.v6i1.5244
Abstract: Primary debulking surgery’s (PDS) role in ovarian cancer there is no dispute, as the currently accepted management of treatment of advanced stage ovarian cancer is PDS in order to achieve an optimal cytoreduction as the amount of residual tumour is one of the most important prognostic factors for survival of women with epithelial ovarian cancer. Several authors have reported PDS is associated with high mortality and morbidity rates, when an optimal surgical procedure, defined as a removal of tumours to < 1to 2 cm in size, required for advanced stage disease (III to IV). So interval debulking sugery (IDS) should be performed in unresectable cases or in the advanced ovarian cancers. However the role of IDS is still not well defined, at present where PDS is feasible and permits a minimal residual tumour to achieve an optimal cytoreduction with an acceptable morbidity, it should be performed in patients with stage II up to IIIC disease with minor carcinomatosis. IDS should be performed in the case of patients with massive unresectable cases. The preliminary results so far reported should be confirmed by a randomized study or level1evidence being conducted by the EORTC (European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer) group to reinforce the randomized study of Maria et al before recommending IDS in cancer of ovary
Folklore and Northeast Indian History  [PDF]

Sociology Mind (SM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2011.14022
Abstract: The article intends to highlight folklore as an alternative source for the writing of history, particularly of the northeastern region of India, which is inhabited by numerous tribal communities, and where there is a dearth of written documents, archaeological and other evidences. Folklore as a source is important to explain and understand societies in the context of preserving cultural diversity and protecting minority cultures, especially those of indigenous peoples and marginalized social groups. With the increased growth of several ethnic identity crises in the region in recent times, the roots for their respective indigenous history are often traced to folklore.
Adult neuroblastoma of the ovary: A rare tumor with review of literature
Singh Meeta,Arora Prerna,Singh Sarita,Bohara Sangeeta
Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics , 2010,
Abstract: Neuroblastoma is a tumor of pediatric age group and is extremely rare in adults. Common sites involved in adults are almost similar to that seen in children like retroperitoneum, adrenal gland, pelvis and mediastinum. Ovarian neuroblastoma has never been reported in the literature before. We, hereby, present a case of a 38-year-old lady with bilateral ovarian neuroblastoma diagnosed as Krukenberg′s tumor clinicoradiologically.

Diagnostic Pathology , 2007, DOI: 10.1186/1746-1596-2-46
Abstract: A case of fibroma with minor sex cord elements discovered incidentally in a normal sized ovary in a patient who presented with dysfunctional uterine bleeding is being presented. This is the first case report describing this entity in a normal sized ovary as an incidental finding.Ovarian fibroma with minor sex cord elements is a rare entity which was first described by Young and Scully in 1983. Only 8 cases of ovarian fibroma with minor sex cord elements have been reported till date [1-4]. We report a case of fibroma with minor sex cord elements of a normal sized ovary discovered incidentally in a patient who presented with dysfunctional uterine bleeding. This is a rare, distinct clinico-pathologic entity among unclassified sex cord stromal tumors and is the first case report describing, the incidental occurrence of this entity in a normal sized ovary.A 45 year old female, gravida 3, para 3, presented to the gynecology outpatient with complaints of something coming out of the vagina and menorrhagia since the past 6 months. Per speculum examination revealed first degree cervical descent with second degree cystocele and rectocele. On vaginal examination uterus was 6 weeks in size, retroverted and mobile with clear bilateral fornices were free. Abdominal ultrasonography was normal. A clinical diagnosis of dysfunctional uterine bleeding with second degree cervical descent along with second degree cystocele and rectocele was made. Since the patient had completed her family, a total abdominal hysterectomy along with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was performed.We received a specimen of uterus with cervix along with bilateral adnexa measuring 8 × 3.5 × 2.5 cm. The cervix was everted pearly white in colour with 4 cm long endocervical canal. The endometrium and myometrium thickness were 0.1 cm and 2 cm. The myometrium on serial slicing showed a focus of hemorrhage. The right ovary measured 2.5 × 2.5 × 1.5 cm and was externally covered by capsule. Cut surface of the ovary sho
Purification and Characterization of Alkaline Xylanase Secreted from Paenibacillus macquariensis  [PDF]
Meeta Sharma, Saurabh Mehta, Anil Kumar
Advances in Microbiology (AiM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/aim.2013.31005

An alkaline xylanase secreted by Paenibacillus macquariensis RC 1819 has been purified using ammonium sulfate fractionation, ion exchange chromatography using DEAE-cellulose and gel filtration chromatography over Sephadex G-200 and Sephadex G-100. The purified enzyme had the specific activity, 25.2 units/mg protein with birchwood xylan as a substrate. The purified enzyme showed a single protein band over sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). The molecular weight of the enzyme has been found to be 31,000 ± 2000 as determined by using Sephadex G-200 gel filtration chromatography. The subunit molecular weight has also been found to be ~31,000 as determined using SDS-PAGE indicating monomeric enzyme. The enzyme showed optimum activity at pH 8.6 and temperature, 50°C. The Michaelis constant (Km) of the enzyme for birchwood xylan was 2.2 mg/ml as determined using velocity saturation plot. The metal ions viz. Co+2 and Mn+2 stimulated xylanase enzyme activity whereas Hg+2 inhibited the enzyme activity.

Gene Ontology term overlap as a measure of gene functional similarity
Meeta Mistry, Paul Pavlidis
BMC Bioinformatics , 2008, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-9-327
Abstract: We computed the TO for randomly selected gene pairs from the mouse genome. For comparison, we implemented six previously reported semantic similarity measures that share the feature of using computation of probabilities of terms to infer information content, in addition to three vector based approaches and a normalized version of the TO measure. We find that the overlap measure is highly correlated with the others but differs in detail. TO is at least as good a predictor of sequence similarity as the other measures. We further show that term overlap may avoid some problems that affect the probability-based measures. Term overlap is also much faster to compute than the information content-based measures.Our experiments suggest that term overlap can serve as a simple and fast alternative to other approaches which use explicit information content estimation or require complex pre-calculations, while also avoiding problems that some other measures may encounter.In this paper we consider the problem of deciding if two genes are functionally related using computational methods. In particular, we are interested in how existing information about gene function can be used to enhance or evaluate computational predictions of functional relationships among genes.Many genes have been functionally characterized by experimental methods, sequencing efforts, and high-throughput techniques, and as a consequence those genes then appear in public databases annotated with terms or concepts representative of their deduced function or biological role in the cell. The Gene Ontology (GO) is a structured, controlled vocabulary of terms providing consistency in annotating how a given gene product behaves in a cellular context, and many genes are now annotated with terms from GO [1]. It is increasingly common to attempt to define functional relatedness using "semantic similarity" of genes using GO annotations [2-7]. While many measures have been used, their relative benefits and drawbacks are
Single Image Improvement using Superresolution
Shwetambari Shinde,Meeta Dewangan
International Journal of Computer Science and Engineering Survey , 2012,
Abstract: Methods for super-resolution can be broadly classified into two families of methods: (i) The classicalmulti-image super-resolution (combining images obtained at subpixel misalignments), and (ii) ExampleBased super-resolution (learning correspondence between low and high resolution image patches from a database). In this paper we propose a unified framework for combining these two families of methods. We further show how this combined approach can be applied to obtain super resolution from as little as a single image (with no database or prior examples). Our approach is based on the observation that patches in a natural image tend to redundantly recur many times inside the image, both within the same scale, as well as across different scales. Recurrence of patches within the same image scale (at sub pixel misalignments) gives rise to the classical super-resolution, whereas recurrence of patches across different scales of the same image gives rise to example-based super-resolution. Our approach attempts to recover at each pixel its best possible resolution increase based on its patch redundancy within and across scales.
Sarojini Naidu's Mystical Poems: Journey from Reverie to Ecstasy & Passion to Devotion
Khanna, Meeta Ajay
Journal of Literature, Culture and Media Studies , 2011,
Abstract: Sarojini Naidu was a gifted artist, whose poetry isappreciated for its bird like quality and sophisticated style. The three volumes of her poems, The Golden Threshold (1905), The Bird of Time (1912) and The Broken Wing (1917), occupy a place of eminence in the history of Indo-Anglian poetry. Lyricism, symbolism, imagery, mysticism and native fervour, are the remarkable qualities of her poetry. She admired the beauty around her whether it was related to the world of nature or varied colours of Indian cultural heritage. Naidu’s themes are indigenous as advised by Edmund Gosse and capture the spirit of India. Her major themes were nature, love, life and death, folk life, patriotism and mysticism. Present paper focuses on the mystical poems of Sarojini Naidu with flashes of comparison with the Mysticism of Sri. Aurobindo. The treatment by both the poets are different but reflect their Indian sensibility. Naidu’s poetry on mysticism not only reflects her faith in the language of the Hindu mystic poets and Sufi mystic poets but also conveys the romantic aspect.

Abstract: Background: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) are rare mesenchymal tumors that may mimic ovarian tumor on presurgical testing. They are most often located in the stomach and proximal small intestine. The gross appearance of GISTs is highly variable. These tumors are usually asymptomatic, often discovered accidentally during endoscopic or radiologic examinations. Case Report: We reported a case of 55-year-old post menopausal woman who presented to us as ovarian mass which turned out to be malignant epithelioid gastrointestinal stromal tumor intraoperatively and by immunohistochemistry. Conclusion: In the patients with a pelvic mass, especially if unusual symptoms and laboratory data being not compatible with gynecological disease, the possibility of diseases other than a gynecologic disease has to be considered. Considering that only few patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors have been reported in the obstetrical and gynecological literature, the awareness of such an entity by the obstetricians-gynecologists is necessary in order to facilitate coordinated approach with the general surgeons and oncologists for the optimal care of the patients.
