Tumor markers and kinetics in prostate cancer: a mini-review
Farooq Ahmad Ganie,Mohd Lateef Wani,Shadab Nabi Wani,Mohd Saleem Wani
Journal of Solid Tumors , 2012, DOI: 10.5430/jst.v2n4p57
Abstract: The discovery and utilization of tumor markers have affected early detection, diagnosis, and staging and follow up of Prostate cancer and have improved curative rates. The goal of identifying different tumor markers in prostate cancer is to get the early diagnosis. One can also see the effect of treatment modality used and prognosticate the disease. In this review we intend to give a detailed account of different markers in prostate cancer. Besides Prostate Specific Antigen, Human kallikrein 2, Kallikrein-related peptidase 14, Prostate acid phosphatase, Cancer Antigen 15-3, Prostate-specific membrane antigen etc. are discussed in detail.
Partial Ordering of Range Symmetric Matrices and M-Projectors with Respect to Minkowski Adjoint in Minkowski Space  [PDF]
D. Krishnaswamy, Mohd Saleem Lone
Advances in Linear Algebra & Matrix Theory (ALAMT) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/alamt.2016.64013
Abstract: In this paper, we obtain some new characterizations of the range symmetric matrices in the Minkowski Space M by using the Block representation of the matrices. These characterizations are used to establish some results on the partial ordering of the range symmetric matrices with respect to the Minkowski adjoint. Further, we establish some results regarding the partial ordering of m-projectors with respect to the Minkowski adjoint and manipulate them to characterize some sets of range symmetric elements in the Minkowski Space M. All the results obtained in this paper are an extension to the Minkowski space of those given by A. Hernandez, et al. in [The star partial order and the eigenprojection at 0 on EP matrices, Applied Mathematics and Computation, 218: 10669-10678, 2012].
Clinical, electrophysiological, and prognostic study of postinjection sciatic nerve injury: An avoidable cause of loss of limb in the peripheral medical service
Wani Maqbool,Sheikh Saleem,Ahmed Asrar
Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology , 2009,
Abstract: Background: Post injection sciatic nerve injury is a common cause of sciatic nerve mononeuropathy in the developing world largely due to inadequate health care facilites in the rural regions. Objective: The study was conducted to analyse the pattern of this nerve lesion in clinical and electrophysiological parameters and also to study the outcome in a conservatively treated cohort. Materials and Methods: One hundred and six patients who underwent evaluation at our laboratory from 2000 to 2006 for post injection sciatic neuropathy formed the study population. Twenty two of these were followed up (mean 6.6 months) for the outcome. Results: In the cases with full data, common peroneal division of the sciatic nerve was affected alone or predominantly. On follow up, 72% cases showed little or partial recovery. Thirty two percent patients had residual trophic changes and causalgia at their last visit. Conclusion: The majority of cases of postinjection sciatic nerve injury have poor prognosis on conservative treatment.
The impact of gender on emotions and age acting as a moderator
Khurram Saleem Alimgeer,Faiza Khurram,Yaqob Wani
International Journal of Technology and Research , 2013,
Abstract: Emotional expression is the lifeblood of any organization or community. This study provides a particular focus on how organizational work commitment and performance is gendered and emotionalized. This study investigated what impact gender have on employee emotions for employee well-being. Work commitment research has also not adequately addressed the importance of emotions as part of Commitment. It is this lack of attention to the importance of the relationships between gender and emotions and their impact on work commitment, and how this relationship is understood from the perspective of organizational members that underpins the need for research in this area. The research is also based on age acting as a moderator in the relationship of gender and emotion. Recent research investigating emotion in old age suggests that autonomic responsiveness diminishes with age. The experiential aspects of emotion, however, show less marked age differences. As concerned to the emotional expressions research seems to suggest that older adults are better than younger adults at regulating socially-relevant emotional information, older adults are not affected by negative emotions as much as younger counterparts. With age comes the ability to better regulate emotions in order to not disrupt performance on a memory-intensive task. Future studies should also be conducted to determine exactly how older adults achieved the same emotion-regulatory goal with less cognitive effort.

Open Journal of Preventive Medicine (OJPM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojpm.2017.78012
Abstract: Objective: Migraine, a common chronic neurological disorder involves a pathophysiology having both multiple genetic and environmental factors. 5, 10-Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) involved in folate metabolism has an important role in a cell for folate availability which is critical for DNA integrity. Methods: This case-control study conducted in Srinagar, Kashmir (North India) between 2013 and 2015 was designed to evaluate risk induced due to MTH-FR 677C>T gene polymorphisms to contribute in susceptibility for migraine in Kashmir population (North India). Using the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method, we tested the genotype distribution of 100 migraine patients in comparison with 120 healthy migraine-free controls from the same geographical region. Results: The genotypic frequencies of the patients and controls were not significantly associated (p > 0.05). Higher distribution of TT mutant genotype was found in controls as against the cases (5% versus 1%) but association was not significant (p > 0.05). Per copy frequency of T allele (Val) was found to be 0.14 in cases versus 0.19 in controls (p < 0.05). Higher frequency of variant genotypes was found more in controls as compared to migraine with aura as 33.3% versus 12% respectively (p > 0.05). Similar scenario was observed when migraine without aura was compared with controls where variant genotype (16% cases versus 39.0% controls: p > 0.05) as well as allele frequency was found to be less in cases (cases 0.15 versus 0.19 controls: p > 0.05). Conclusions: We conclude that MTHFR gene C677T polymorphism has no role in predisposition to the migraine in our population and cannot serve as a predictive factor for the risk of migraine.

Turkish Journal of Urology , 2012,
Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of single-session ethanol sclerotherapy in the treatment of symptomatic simple renal cysts.Materials and methods: Between March 2006 and June 2011, 42 consecutive patients with 45 symptomatic renal cysts were treated with percutaneous aspiration and ethanol sclerotherapy. The volume of the cyst fluid ranged from 75 to 650 mL (mean 220 mL), and the cysts were categorized into three groups: <150 mL, 150-300 mL, and >300 mL. The cysts were aspirated under local anesthesia with ultrasound guidance using an 18-gauge 20 cm spinal puncture needle. After near-total cyst aspiration, volumes of 25 mL, 50 mL, and 75 mL of an ethanol sclerosing agent were used in the three cyst groups, respectively. The patients were reassessed at 1, 3, and 6 months. Results: The procedure was technically feasible in all of the patients. The final assessment at 6 months showed that, of the 45 cysts treated, there was a complete response (symptomatic with complete cyst resolution) in 33 (73%) cysts and a partial response in 10 (22%); the procedure was unsuccessful for 2 (4%) cysts. There was a correlation between the initial cyst volume and the response to treatment. There were no major complications related to the procedure. Minor complications, including pain, fever, hematuria, and small perinephric hematoma were observed in 11 (26%) patients and were managed conservatively.Conclusion: The treatment of symptomatic simple renal cysts using ethanol sclerotherapy under ultrasound guidance is a simple, safe, minimally invasive, and cost-effective outpatient procedure with satisfactory short- and mid-term results. The procedure can be performed with good efficiency and low morbidity, particularly in moderately sized cysts (<300 mL) and therefore should be considered as a feasible therapeutic option for the treatment of symptomatic simple renal cortical cysts. However, a longer follow-up period is needed to assess the long-term results of this procedure.

JK Science : Journal of Medical Education & Research , 2005,
Abstract: At present the techniques available for performing intracorporeal lithotripsy include electrohydraulic,ultrasonic, laser, and ballistic lithotripsy. We present our experience with a unique technology forperforming intracorporeal lithotripsy, namely the Swiss lithoclast, which is a form of ballistic lithotripsy.This simple and inexpensive device uses compressed air to activate a solid probe in a manner similarto that of a jackhammer. We report the use of this lithoclast in 92 patients involving a total of 95ureteral calculi. The lithoclast successfully fragmented 81 of the 95 calculi, a success rate of 85.26%.There were no major complications directly related to the use of this device. The Swiss lithoclastseems to be a safe, effective and an inexpensive means of performing intracorporeal lithotripsy forureteral calculi
