Horticultural Exports of Developing Countries: Issues under WTO Regime
Deepak Shah
Economic Analysis Working Papers , 2008,
Abstract: This paper seeks to evaluate the present and future prospects of developing and developed countries in agricultural exports in general and in horticultural exports in particular. The study also evaluates the behaviour of international export prices for agricultural commodities, both for developing and developed nations. In general, this study provides an insight into the direction in which various developed and developing countries are heading for insofar as their agricultural and horticultural exports are concerned in the changed market conditions. The study has made a few major observations. First, the study shows decline in market share of developing countries’ in world agricultural exports in the face of marginal increase in their market share in world fruits and vegetable (F&V) exports during the period between 1981 and 1997. Second, although the study shows lower market share of developing countries’ in world F&V exports during the period between 1981 and 1997, the growth in F&V exports as proportion of total agricultural exports is noticed to be much faster for developing countries’ as against the developed countries’ during the same period. Third, though agricultural exports of Least Developed Countries (LDC) have grown only marginally between 1981 and 1997, the growth in their F&V exports is seen to have been tremendous, especially after the late eighties period. Similarly, Socialist Countries of Asia (SCA) and developing countries of Oceania have also shown sharp increases in their F&V exports after the late eighties period. Fourth, while except America, other Africa and Oceania, all the developing countries have shown decline in their market share in total F&V exports of Developing Market Economies (DME), Asia shows rise in its market share not only in agriculture but also in F&V exports of DME. Another major observation of this study is in terms of instabilities in export prices. The instabilities in export prices of agricultural commodities, including horticultural ones, are noticed to be more sharp for developing world as compared to developed world. The study, therefore, has categorically emphasized upon the fact that the future growth in horticulture production and trade, especially of developing world, will mainly depend on future price mechanism and also on the import demand of these high value crops in various regions of the world.

The majority of cases are believed to be associated with herpes simplex virus type-1 (HSV-1), although HSV-2, varicella zoster virus (VZV), cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) are also associated with various ocular diseases. The ability of some herpes viruses to infect various anatomic regions of the eye may be facilitated by entry processes that are cell-type specific, and in many cases may occur more frequently in the immunocompromised. The elimination of the role of herpesviruses in ocular disease remains elusive, as they often develop life-long latency in a large proportion of humans. Experimental vaccines for ocular HSV have shown some benefit in animal models, a result that has not been adequately demonstrated in clinical trials. Meanwhile, ocular involvement in VZV remains unpredictable, and CMV retinitis continues to be an important cause of blindness in those infected by HIV.

International Journal of Hepatology , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/782672
Abstract: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are a distinctive entity, and nearly 10% of patients already have liver metastases at presentation. The management of neuroendocrine liver metastases (NEN-LM) is complex with differing patterns of metastatic presentation. An aggressive approach should be used to resect the primary tumor, to remove regional lymph nodes, and to resect or treat appropriate distant metastases (including liver tumors). Despite having an indolent course, NENs have a significantly reduced survival when liver metastases are untreated. Though a wide range of therapies are now available with a multimodal approach to the treatment, surgical treatment offers the only chance for a significant survival prolongation and/or improvement of symptoms and quality of life. A review of the existing surgical modalities for NEN-LM is discussed in this paper.
A case study on use of modified delphi technique for developing consensus on designing contents of a module for imparting sex education to adolescents in schools, in India

Global Journal of Medicine and Public Health , 2012,
Abstract: In the year 2007, eleven (11) of India’s 29 states suspended the federal initiative, ‘Adolescence Education Program’, under the name of School AIDS awareness education program (SAEP) designed for 15- to 17-year-olds in all staterun schools and devised by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) and National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) on grounds that the flip charts used for training teachers contained explicit images of male and female reproductive systems, conception, and contraception. The aim of the present study is to understand usefulness of Delphi technique as a tool to develop contents and make consensus over a suitable module that can be utilized for imparting Sex Education to the Adolescents in school. The study present below used Delphi technique in transaction of the module recommended by National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT) for imparting Sex education under SAEP. Although the technique was successful in building consensus amongst different stake holders, within the limitations of Delphi like potential drop outs, loss to follow up and lack of clear verbal labels. It is concluded from the results of present study that Delphi technique, when rigorously administered, analyzed and reported, is a valuable method to help policy planners in developing the process for a suitable module that can be utilized for imparting sex education to adolescents in school.

Indian Journal of Ophthalmology , 2010,
Abstract: Cycloposition has been measured by various methods; however, fundus photography is the most reliable method to evaluate the torsion objectively. We did a prospective study to find out the disc foveal angle (DFA) and its variation in children without squint. We included 210 eyes of 105 children between the ages of 5-15 years. DFA was calculated using standard technique after taking a fundus photograph. The cycloplegic refraction was done and compared. The mean age was 10.6 ± 2.5 years. Mean DFA in right eye (RE) was 6.49 ± 3.25° (0-13°) and in left eye (LE) was 5.80 ± 3.29° (0-12°). The difference between the RE and LE was statistically not significant (P=0.131) (mean 1.15 ±1.39°). Mean DFA in emmetropic children was 6.1° ± 3.4° (n=112 eyes). DFA varies widely in children. The difference observed in DFA measurement for eyes with various refractive errors were compared with DFA measurements for emmetropic eyes.

International Journal of Computer & Electronics Research , 2013,
Abstract: Automated extraction of knowledge from voluminous documents is a vast research area. Text mining is a promising approach for extracting knowledge from unstructured textual documents. The objective of this paper is to mine documents pertaining to any Medical information in this case the diseases, which are retrieved from a databank, and find novel transitive associations among biological objects. This paper discusses the extraction of biological objects from the databank using an Automated Vocabulary Discovery (AVD) algorithm[7]. A text-mining process is described for finding transitive (novel) associations among the extracted biological objects. The text mining algorithm also assigns a numerical significance score to them. The expectation is that those with higher score have greater likelihood of being true than those with lower scores.
Surgical Treatment of Liver Metastases in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms

The management of neuroendocrine liver metastases (NEN-LM) is complex with differing patterns of metastatic presentation. An aggressive approach should be used to resect the primary tumor, to remove regional lymph nodes, and to resect or treat appropriate distant metastases (including liver tumors). Despite having an indolent course, NENs have a significantly reduced survival when liver metastases are untreated. Though a wide range of therapies are now available with a multimodal approach to the treatment, surgical treatment offers the only chance for a significant survival prolongation and/or improvement of symptoms and quality of life. A review of the existing surgical modalities for NEN-LM is discussed in this paper. 1. Introduction Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) consist of a group of neoplasms that arise from neuroendocrine cells dispersed throughout the body and show variable clinical course. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifications in 2000 and subsequently in 2004 did not address the diversity of these tumors. A histologic grading system based on Ki-67 labelling index was proposed by the European Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (ENETS) [1, 2]. The ENETS grading system (G1, G2, G3) has thus been incorporated in the new WHO 2010 classification [3]. It is now recognized that all neuroendocrine tumours are potentially malignant and hence characterized as neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs). Intestinal NENs represent two-thirds [4], while pancreatic NENs represent about one-third of gastroenteropancreatic NENs (GEP-NENs) [5]. Besides regional lymph node involvement, liver is the predominant site of metastases [6]. Up to 75% of patients with small bowel NEN and 30–85% of pancreatic NENs present with liver metastases (NEN-LM) either at initial evaluation or during the course of their disease [7–9]. An additional 5–10% of NEN patients present with liver metastases with unknown primary tumor site. In contrast with the traditional opinion that NEN represents an indolent disease, Touzios et al. [10] reported 5-year survivals range from 13–54% in patients with untreated NEN-LM compared to 75–99% in those without liver metastases [11–15]. 2. Liver Metastases as a Prognostic Factor Pancreatic NENs have a lower 5-year survival rate (30–60%) compared to intestinal NENs (60–90%) [16–18]. Liver metastases, however, are the most important prognosticator of survival in patients with NEN regardless of the primary site [19]. Two large
