Abstract: For a better understanding of various dermatoses, it is imperative for any physician practising dermatology to have a good theoretical knowledge of the underlying pathophysiologic processes involved in various systemic diseases involving the skin. For an easy grasp over this topic, we have discussed the various phenomena under three broad categories, like (a) clinical - Meyerson, Meirowsky, pathergy, Renbok, (b) laboratory - LE cell, prozone and (c) histopathology - Splendore-Hoeppli.

Abstract: Background: Mycosis fungoides (MF) is cutaneous lymphoma of the T-cell lineage. Hypopigmented MF is a clinical variant of MF, described mainly in Asians. This is a retrospective clinicopathologic analysis of hypopigmented MF at a tertiary care center. Aims: To describe the clinicopathologic profile of hypopigmented MF. Methods: Records of clinicopathologic notes over a 5-year period ranging from January 2005 up to December 2009 were reviewed over a period of 3 months, of which 15 cases were diagnosed with hypopigmented MF based on clinicopathologic correlation. Results: Hypopigmented MF was found to be more common in males, and between second and fourth decades of life. The latent period between onset and diagnosis was around 3.83 years. Most of the patients were asymptomatic 80% (12/15), with skin changes of subtle atrophy in 46.66% (7/15), scaling in 20% (3/15) and focal changes of poikiloderma in 26.66% (4/15) patients. Most common sites of distribution of the lesions were the trunk and extremities. Many of the cases had been clinically mistaken for Hansen′s disease prior to correct diagnosis. Marked epidermotropism and tagging of epidermis by large lymphocytes characterizes the condition histopathologically. Of the 15 cases, immunohistochemistry was possible in 10 cases, of which 8 showed predominant CD8 positive epidermotropic infiltrates and two cases showed absence of CD8 positive and CD4 positive lymphocytic infiltrate in the epidermis. Conclusion: Hypopigmented MF presents as hypopigmented asymptomatic patches without any erythema or infiltration in its early stage and mimics Hansen′s disease. Skin biopsy clinches the diagnosis.
GIS Technique in Management of Watershed Developed along the Konkan Coast, Maharashtra, India  [PDF]

Journal of Geographic Information System (JGIS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jgis.2015.73022
Abstract: Coastal watersheds differ from inland by their unique features including proximity to the ocean, weather and rainfall patterns, drainage system, subsurface aquifer conditions and geomorphological units. Land use changes and competing needs for water resources are especially more distinctive to such watersheds. This difference leads to put forward the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM), and is deemed to provide an operational tool for future researchers, developers and policy makers. Some important attributes necessary for watershed management in terms of land capability zonation include drainage, altitude, geology and slopes. The paper incorporates results of representative watershed namely Shringar Tali watershed. GIS technique was used to generate layers like drainage and springs, geology, contour, slopes and Digital Elevation Model (DEM), essential for watershed management. On the basis of interpretation of layers and superimposed picture obtained, Land Capability Zonation Map (LCZM) was prepared. The scope for spring sanctuary development, agro-forestry and aquaculture development is discussed in the paper.
The elusive definition of pandemic influenza
Bulletin of the World Health Organization , 2011, DOI: 10.2471/BLT.11.086173
Abstract: there has been considerable controversy over the past year, particularly in europe, over whether the world health organization (who) changed its definition of pandemic influenza in 2009, after novel h1n1 influenza was identified. some have argued that not only was the definition changed, but that it was done to pave the way for declaring a pandemic. others claim that the definition was never changed and that this allegation is completely unfounded. such polarized views have hampered our ability to draw important conclusions. this impasse, combined with concerns over potential conflicts of interest and doubts about the proportionality of the response to the h1n1 influenza outbreak, has undermined the public trust in health officials and our collective capacity to effectively respond to future disease threats. who did not change its definition of pandemic influenza for the simple reason that it has never formally defined pandemic influenza. while who has put forth many descriptions of pandemic influenza, it has never established a formal definition and the criteria for declaring a pandemic caused by the h1n1 virus derived from "pandemic phase" definitions, not from a definition of "pandemic influenza". the fact that despite ten years of pandemic preparedness activities no formal definition of pandemic influenza has been formulated reveals important underlying assumptions about the nature of this infectious disease. in particular, the limitations of "virus-centric" approaches merit further attention and should inform ongoing efforts to "learn lessons" that will guide the response to future outbreaks of novel infectious diseases.

Abstract: Diclofenac Sodium causes gastro-intestinal irritation and ulceration on prolonged use. The buccal delivery of Diclofenac Sodium avoids direct contact to mucosa so it should reduce the possibility of ulceration. The buccal films of Diclofenac Sodium were formulated using mucoadhesive polymers like PVA and HPMC. The films were evaluated for their mechanical strength, folding endurance, drug content uniformity, swelling, in vitro residence time, in vitro release, in vitro bioadhesion and in vivo mucoadhesion. Films were found to have good tensile strength and elasticity. The drug content was found to be uniform. The films prepared with HPMC had satisfactory residence time, good bioadhesive strength and the release of drug was matrix diffusion type. The films prepared with PVA have comparatively less bioadhesion and in vitro residence time. The buccal films prepared with PVA can be used for the fast release of drug and so fast action, whereas HPMC films can be used for the sustained release of the drug.
Approximation for the Path Complexity of Binary Search Tree
Nishant Doshi
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: The complexity of an algorithm is an important parameter to determine its effi-ciency. They are of different types viz. Time complexity, Space complexity, etc. However, none of them consider the execution path as a complexity measure. Ashok et al, firstly proposed the notion of the Path Complexity of a pro-gram/algorithm, which defined based on the number of execution paths as a function of the input size. However, the notion of path complexity of the pro-gram, cannot apply to the object-oriented environment. Therefore, Anupam et al, has extended the notion of path complexity to the class as follows. The notion of the state of the class is defined based on structural representation (aka state) of the class. The class contains data members and data operations. It considers only those data operations that change the state of the class. The path complexity of the class is defined to be the number of valid input sequences, each of them con-taining valid data operations. Anupam et al, had applied this notion to the class Stack. However, the stack is basic and simple data structures. Therefore, in this research we have used a more complex class to understand the path complexity behavior in the object oriented environment. Binary Search Tree (BST) is one of the well known (and more complex too) data structure, which is useful in sorting, searching, Traffic Engineering and many more applications. We have analyzed the path complexity of the class BST based on the algorithms for insert and delete operations. Additionally, we have modified the delete operation to minimize the path complexity for the class BST.
