Indian Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation , 2009,
Abstract: A 25 year old female presented with facial weaknessand symmetrical proximal weakness of the extremitieswhich was aggravated on exertion. Clinical examinationand laboratory investigations were diagnostic ofmyasthenia gravis. Moreover, the patient tested positivefor HIV. Management with anticholinesterase medicationshowed marked improvement in overall strength andperformance of activities of daily living (ADL). Thepossibility of simultaneous affection with myastheniagravis should be borne in mind when HIV patients presentwith weakness.

Indian Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation , 2009,
Abstract: Objectives: To find out pattern of joints involved andeffectiveness of a treatment program in HIV associatedarthritisMethods: A cohort of 26 Human ImmunodeficiencyVirus (HIV) associated arthritis patients (21 males and 5females) who attended Department of Physical Medicineand Rehabilitation of the Regional Institute of MedicalSciences, Imphal was studied during 2002 and 2005. CD4count and joint fluid examination including culture andsensitivity were performed before initiation of thetreatment. A management program consisting ofNSAIDs, intra-articular (I/A) methyl prednisoloneinjection upto a maximum of 3 times, range of mobilizationexercises, strengthening of muscles around the joint, localrestriction of activities to protect joints was instituted.Low dose oral corticosteroids was considered when therewas persistence of joint effusion after I/A methylprednisolone injection(s). Joint score, pain score andactivities of daily living score were assessed at baseline,3 and 6 months.Results: Mean age of the patients was 33.2 (SD, 6.6)years. Knee joint was involved in 22 cases followed byankle joint in 5 cases. More than two joints were involvedin 7 cases. Median CD4 count was 484 (range 231-897).The synovial fluid showed features of inflammation andwas sterile. Nineteen cases (73%) remained symptomfree for at least 3 months after I/A injection ofmethylprednisolone. Of the 7 refractory cases, all in kneejoints, two had associated hyperuricemia. Synovial biopsyshowed tuberculosis in one and the case responded tothe addition of antitubercular drugs. And other caseresponded to hypouricaemic drug. Four cases respondedto low dose oral corticosteroids and another caseresponded only after initiation of antiretroviral treatment.Conclusions: Knee was the most commonly involvedjoint. Intraarticular methylprednisolone seem to beeffective in the management of these cases in addition tothe rehabilitation program. Low dose oral prednisolne wasfound to be a good adjunct in refractory cases.

Abstract: This cross sectional study was done in elderly above 60 years of age with the objectives to assess theprevalence of disability in ADL among the elderly in the urban field practice area of the department ofcommunity medicine, RIMS, Imphal. Disability in ADL, age, marital status, gender, educational status,occupation, chronic disease and perceived health status were studied. 38 (12.2%) elders were found to bedisabled in ADL. Elderly males with poor perceived health status and having one or more chronic diseaseshave significantly higher risk of being disabled in ADL. It was concluded that identified risk factors need tobe addressed in prevention and control strategies in this area.

Promoting early presentation of breast cancer
AJ Ramirez
Breast Cancer Research , 2008, DOI: 10.1186/bcr2005
Abstract: Ideally an intervention to reduce delayed presentation of breast cancer would promote early help-seeking behaviour by patients at high risk of having cancer, but would not promote anxiety amongst people at low risk. It is important that patients should not be made unnecessarily anxious, and nor should general practitioners be overburdened with consultations with the worried well population. Based on the empirical evidence for the risk factors for patient delay and using effective behavioural change techniques, we have developed and are evaluating a psycho-educational intervention to promote early presentation of breast cancer by older women. We have focused our intervention on older women who are at greater risk of breast cancer and are also more likely to delay their presentation. The intervention is delivered by trained diagnostic radiographers at the point when the women leave the routine protection afforded by the National Health Service Breast Screening Programme and is in line with government recommended practice and complementary to the Breast Screening Programme. The ultimate aim of the intervention is to reduce the proportion of older women with breast cancer who delay their presentation, and thereby save lives.I will outline this work and other current initiatives within the United Kingdom to promote awareness and early presentation of breast cancer and how these might inform the development of policy initiatives to improve outcomes for patients within the National Health Service.
Sex ratio at birth and racial differences: Why do Black women give birth to more females than non- Black women?
AJ Kaba
African Journal of Reproductive Health , 2008,
Abstract: The two important questions that this paper will attempt to answer are: (1) why is it that regardless of race/ethnicity or geographic location, the sex ratio data at birth show more males than females?; and (2) Why is it that regardless of geographic location compared to other racial/ethnic groups, Black women or Women of sub-Saharan Black African descent tend to give birth to more females? Or to put this question the other way around, compared to Black women, why do non-Black women give birth to more males? (Afr J Reprod Health 2008; 12[3]:139-150).
