Primary Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor of the Breast—A Case Report  [PDF]
Mushtaq Chalkoo, Shahnawaz Ahangar, Asim Rafiq Laharwal, Aasim Mushtaq Patloo, Abbass Mohd, Shabir Ahmed Dar
Surgical Science (SS) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2011.23028
Abstract: Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor is a rare soft tissue sarcoma. Breast is an extremely rare location of this lesion and presentation as a breast lump in the absence of pain or previous benign neural tumor is even rarer. We report such a lesion in a 60 year-old female who presented with hard and painless breast lump for 2 years. Histopathology revealed a malignant spindle cell tumor of low grade potential. It was subsequently confirmed to be malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) on the basis of immunopositivity for vimentin, neurone specific enolase and S-100.

Strategies in Trauma and Limb Reconstruction , 2013, DOI: 10.1007/s11751-012-0151-6
Abstract: Neglected dislocation of the shoulder is a rare condition with some cases of anterior and posterior dislocation being reported. We report a case with a fracture dislocation of the proximal humerus with the dislocated head lying inferior to the glenoid. We also report on the surgical management of a case with this extremely rare condition which required shortening of the distal fragment to reduce tissue tension.

Shabir Ahmed Dhar,Tahir Ahmed Dar,Asif Sultan,Abdul Rouf Malik,Mohammed Ramzan Mir
Strategies in Trauma and Limb Reconstruction , 2011, DOI: 10.1007/s11751-011-0120-5
Abstract: To report a proximal femoral osteotomy with retention of bone ledges in a reciprocal position to increase bone contact and stability. The method was applied to 5 patients over a 3-year period. All patients had coxa vara. The average length gained was 1.5 cm, and the average neck shaft angle improvement was 30°. The Harris hip score improved from an average of 63 to 82. The reciprocal ledge osteotomy is technically less demanding and also allows conversion of normal shear forces around the upper femur to stabilizing forces. This method allows easier use of the DHS implant as potential rotation about the axis of the screw is negated by the ledges and the dynamic forces.
Open reduction and internal fixation in a case with transscaphoid perilunate dislocation 8 months after the injury: a patient with a 5-year follow-up
Bashir Ahmed Mir,Shabir Ahmed Dhar,Mohammed Ramzan Mir,Mohammed Farooq Butt,Asif Sultan,Tahir Ahmed Dar,Mohammed Iqbal Wani
Strategies in Trauma and Limb Reconstruction , 2008, DOI: 10.1007/s11751-008-0036-x
Abstract: The management of perilunate dislocations diagnosed later than three months continue to elicit debate with literature being scarce. We report a 22-year-old male with transscaphoid perilunate dislocation who reported to our hospital 8 months after sustaining the injury. Open reduction was done along with bone grafting. Five years after the surgery the patient is symptom-free with an excellent range of motion.
The dynamic condylar screw in the management of subtrochanteric fractures: does judicious use of biological fixation enhance overall results?
Manzoor Ahmed Halwai,Shabir Ahmed Dhar,Mohammed Iqbal Wani,Mohammed Farooq Butt,Bashir Ahmed Mir,Murtaza Fazal Ali,Imtiyaz Hussain Dar
Strategies in Trauma and Limb Reconstruction , 2007, DOI: 10.1007/s11751-007-0022-8
Abstract: Subtrochanteric fractures are fraught with certain anatomic, biologic and biomechanical challenges. Evolution of implants like the Gamma nail, fixed-angle nail plates, compression hip screws and dynamic hip screws with trochanteric stabilization plates underlines a persistent quest for a better implant. We studied the dynamic condylar screw DCS as an implant on a series of 30 consecutive patients with subtrochanteric fractures. Our purpose was to assess this implant as a panacea for subtrochanteric fractures. All cases of AO type A and B were anatomically fixed, whereas type C was biologically plated. The idea was to assess the applicability and adaptability of the DCS. Fractures in 29 cases united, with one patient suffering from an implant failure. There were 17 excellent, 5 good, 5 fair and 3 poor results. The DCS is a definite advance over previous methods of treatment; when combined with the utilization of biological fixation techniques for comminuted fractures, can be relied upon to treat all types of subtrochanteric fractures.
Calorie Restriction the Fountain of Youth  [PDF]

Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2012.311198
Abstract: Calorie restriction (CR) is as close to a real fountain of youth as any known technique is. Caloric restriction known to extend the human lifespan by up to five years has quietly become accepted among leading researchers. Even scientists who are cautious about anti-aging hype say it works. The formula is simple: Eat less. It could add years to your life. In the context of health and longevity, I analyzed data documenting proofs which suggest that the caloric restriction extends life span and retards age-related chronic diseases in a variety of species, including rats, mice, fish, flies, worms, and yeast as well as improve biomarkers of aging in humans. Research has shown that not only does it result in a longer lifespan, but it also lowers blood pressure, oxidative damage, cardiovascular disease, modifies insulin sensitivity, reduces loss of central nervous system cells, strengthens the immune system, lowers cholesterol, diminishes the rate of heart disease, reduces muscle oxygen loss, improves muscle function, reduces free radical damage to body tissue and helps stabilize blood sugar in adult-onset diabetes. Caloric restriction the most widely recognized life span-extending intervention has shown that it does indeed have age-slowing effects in humans like it has been shown to work in animals and Dr. Fontana has already made medical history in studying anti aging effects of caloric restriction.
Isolation, purification and characterization of carboxymethyl cellulase (CMCase) from endophytic Fusarium oxysporum producing podophyllotoxin  [PDF]
Refaz Ahmad Dar, Iram Saba, Mohd Shahnawaz, Manisha Kashinath Sangale, Avinash Bapurao Ade, Shabir Ahmad Rather, Parvaiz Hassan Qazi
Advances in Enzyme Research (AER) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/aer.2013.14010
Abstract: Endophytic fungus Fusarium oxysporum is a rich source of cellulases. In the present study, the highest activity was reported at 28 ° C, pH 5.6 with 2% Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) as carbon source. CMC was purified using Sephadex G and DEAE cellulose chromatography to 15.9 folds and the molecular weight was determined to be 84 kDa by SDS-PAGE analysis and was subsequently characterized. The purified enzyme was stable over the pH range from 4.0 to 8.0 and at temperatures below 50 ° C. The enzyme was highly active on CMC and reduced or no activity on Avicel, cellobiose and it was suggested to be CMCase/endoglucanase. The activity of endoglucanase was enhanced in the presence of MgCl2, CoCl2, FeCl3, CaCl2, FeCl2 and intensive to HgCl2. The purified enzyme showed its optimum activity at pH 5.0 - 6.0 and was quite stable at 50 ° C for 30 min and retained 45% of original activity.
