Jitendra Singh Nigam,Vatsala Misra,Varsha Kumar,Kachnar Varma
Rare Tumors , 2012, DOI: 10.4081/rt.2012.e36
Abstract: An 18 year old female presented with the history of pain in abdomen, breast engorgement, swelling over both legs and breathlessness for three month. On clinical examination diagnosis of fibroadenoma breast was made. Ultrasonography of abdomen showed bilateral ovarian mass. Bilateral salpingo-ophrectomy was done and specimen was sent for histological examination. Two lobulated solid masses of tissues the larger one measuring 13x8x5 cm and smaller one measuring 10x7x5 cm in size received. Microscopic examination showed monomorphic population of discohesive, hyperchromatic small round cells had high N:C ratio, coarse chromatin, conspicuous nucleoli and scant to moderate amount of basophilic cytoplasm, lying in sheets and separated by fibrous strands and diffusely infiltrating the ovarian stroma. Fine needle aspiration from breast lump and leg swelling showed predominant population of blast cells. Myeloperoxidase was strongly positive and diagnosis of granulocytic sarcoma was confirmed.
Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor: Report of two cases
Mandal Shramana,Varma Kachnar,Khurana Nita,Mandal A
Indian Journal of Pathology and Microbiology , 2008,
Abstract: Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT) is a rare, benign odontogenic tumor. It constitutes 0.4-3% of all odontogenic tumors. There is only a single case, which has been reported in the Indian literature that too in cytology. Microscopically, these are composed of large sheets of epithelial cells, amorphous amyloid-like material and calcification. Although these lesions are benign, they can be locally aggressive, but malignant transformation and metastasis is rare. Considering its locally aggressive nature, appropriate management and long-term follow-up is recommended. We describe two cases of CEOT involving the hard palate and leading to facial alterations.
Big Data Usage Intention of Management Accountants: Blending the Utility Theory with the Theory of Planned Behavior in an Emerging Market Context  [PDF]
Ashish Varma
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.813176
Abstract: This work blends the utility theory with the theory of planned behavior to investigate the management accountant’s (MA) intention in using big data. The study was conducted in early 2017 using a partial least squares-structural equation modeling technique with a sample of 203 MAs in 11 Indian cities. The research identified attitude as the most significant antecedent of intent to use big data followed by the subjective norms. These findings have significant managerial relevance for the firms in sensitizing their accounting teams on the benefits of using big data to achieve more voluntary buy in from the MAs. The investigation also contributes to the methods by illustrating the application of two advanced techniques, multi group analysis (MGA) and importance-performance map analysis (IPMA) in validating the theory of planned behavior in an emerging market context.

Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.814183
Abstract: This study applies the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) to investigate the entrepreneurial usage of mobile banking services. The study was conducted during 2017-18 using a partial least squares-structural equation modeling technique. A sample of 206 entrepreneurs, from fourteen sub-urban towns in India, was studied. The study found that mobile banking intentions mediates the relationship between all three; effort expectancy and use behavior, performance expectancy and use behavior and social influence and use behavior. There was no gender-based difference between the banking behavior among the entrepreneurs. The study also validates the UTAUT theory in an emerging market context. These findings are significant as the entrepreneurial choices regarding mobile banking in emerging markets demands more research. Mobile phones have a deep penetration in the emerging markets and so its role in facilitating the banking needs of the entrepreneurs should be ascertained. The study also contributes to the methods by illustrating the use of importance performance map analysis (IPMA) in the UTAUT context.
Qualitative Evidence for a Behavioral Extension of the Expectancy Valence Theory: The Netflix-Twitter-Yakult Case  [PDF]
Ashish Varma
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.815212
Abstract: The Netflix movie “To all the boys I’ve loved before” released in the USA on 17th Aug 2018 was linked to a substantial increase in sales of the probiotic drink Yakult. This study probes the phenomenon with an analysis of tweets for the first three weeks after the release of the movie and also assesses reasons for the phenomenon with the theoretical underpinning of the Expectancy Valence (EV) theory. The first section of the study was conducted by undertaking a probe on 1922 tweets made during 17th Aug 2018 (the release date of the movie in the USA) till 6th September 2018. The second part of the study was conducted by taking intensive in-depth interviews of the target segment after 6th September 2018. The study highlights the growing significance of social media in shaping the sentiments by influencing perception and opinion (valence), which eventually influences the sales of products (expectation). The study found out that the sharp increase in sales was due to positive behavioral sentiment created by the social media.
Do Culturally Intelligent Management Accountants Share More Knowledge?—The Mediating Role of Coopetition as Evident from PLS SEM and fsQCA  [PDF]
Ashish Varma
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2019.91009
This work investigates whether management accountants (MA) who have experience of working in multicultural environments are more open to share their knowledge, learning and insights with others or not. The study was conducted in early 2018 by using a Partial Least Squares-Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) technique with a sample of 107 MAs working in India in 7 different cities and in different multinational organizations. The research identified that coopetition mediated the relationship between cultural intelligence (CQ) and the intention to share knowledge (ISK) as evidenced by both PLS-SEM and fsQCA methods. This finding is significant for both theory and practice as coopetition involves both collaboration and completion amongst the MAs. The Multi Group Analysis (MGA) revealed no significant gender related differences amongst the practicing management accountants. The study also contributes to the methods by illustrating the modelling of the second order construct “cultural intelligence”, formatively. Thus, this study illustrates the use of second order reflective-formative constructs in management accounting literature, for exploring the theory. This architecture can be of significant use for future researchers.
A Behavioral Economics Study on the Management Accountant’s Professional Networking Practices through Mobile Technologies  [PDF]
Ashish Varma, Subhransu Sahoo
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.814192
Abstract: The objective of this study was to ascertain the management accountant’s (MA) usage of smartphone for professional networking purposes. The study was conducted during mid-2017 to mid-2018 using a partial least squares-structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) technique. The study included a sample of 168 management accountants from India. The study found out that the enjoyment of professional networking activity (EPA) has a direct significant effect on the perceived value of smartphone professional networking service (PVSP) and that the perceived risk (PR) had a significant negative effect on the trust in advice acquired from a smartphone professional networking service (TCASP). As expected, privacy concerns (PC) had a significant direct effect on the perceived risks (PR). The PVSP had a direct positive effect on TCASP. Finally, it was observed that PR mediates the relationship between PC and TCASP. Thus, this study contributes by bringing new empirical insights on the actual usage of mobile technology for professional networking purposes in an emerging market context and has significant ramifications for providers of such services.
The effect of controlling the ABC’s of diabetes on cardiovascular disease in a community-based endocrinology practice  [PDF]
Swarna Varma, Gretchen A. Piatt
Journal of Diabetes Mellitus (JDM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jdm.2013.34031

Introduction: Large clinical trials demonstrate that glycemic, blood pressure, and cholesterol control lead to risk reduction in cardiovascular events. We determined whether A1c, blood pressure, and cholesterol control were associated with incident cardiovascular disease [CVD] in a community-based endocrinology practice over 10 years. Methods: 385 consecutive patients seen for diabetes management in a CBEP comprised the analysis cohort. To be included, a patient had ≥2 A1c, blood pressure, and LDLc measurements respectively without prevalent CVD. All patients were 18 years or older with a diagnosis of diabetes before or during calendar year 2000. Results: 17.6% of patients developed incident CVD over 10 years. After controlling for age, gender, and time, patients who improved their A1c to <7% during the time they spent in the practice had a 47% reduction in incident CVD [hazard rate = 0.53, 95% CI: 0.26 - 1.1]. Similar trends were observed for LDLc [27% reduction, hazard rate = 0.73, 95% CI: 0.3 - 1.8] and blood pressure control [35% reduction, hazard rate = 0.65, 95% CI: 0.33 - 1.3]. Additionally, patients who achieved all ABCSs at goal level at least once were 2.5x more likely not to develop incident CVD [hazard rate = 2.5, 95% CI: 1.2, 5.1] during their time in the practice. Conclusion: These results highlight the feasibility of achieving A1c, blood pressure, and cholesterol goals and demonstrate the significant impact that control has on incident CVD in a community-based endocrinology practice. Models of care that focus on prevention of complications through A1c, blood pressure, and cholesterol control may lead to decreased morbidity and mortality.

Simplifying Dry Eye Management:A Structured Approach
Varma Pushpa
International Journal of Research in Pharmacy and Science , 2012,
Abstract: Dry eye is a chronic condition that, unfortunately, is affecting a growing number of people every year. Partly the product of an aging society, partly the result of a modern lifestyle, the condition is becoming increasingly widespread, causing discomfort and anxiety. The multifaceted nature of the condition makes it difficult for us to recommend an effective therapy for dry eye patient. Most of us try to manage this condition with artificial tear supplements only, without taking into account the exact pathogenesis behind the condition .As a number of tear substitutes are available in market ,we keep on switching from one brand to another with the hope that one will help the patient and the results arefrustrating for both us and patient . With so many causes of dry eye and nearly as many therapeutic approaches, we shouldaim for combination therapy, with different treatment line for aqueous deficient and evaporative type of dry eye. It is important that we listen to patients symptoms as well as any visible signs and attack dry eye in a systematic way. With the aim to improve the approach for management of dry eye by general ophthalmologist this review provides a structured approach which will enhance our capability of diagnosing and treating this condition.
