DiscussionA better understanding of sarcoidosis-related impact on work ability and quantification of disease burden is needed. Education for medical examiners and employers on sarcoidosis may improve quality of assessments and work accommodations. Development of guidelines for benefit authorities, which consider the broad impact of sarcoidosis beyond that of reduced pulmonary function, including extra-pulmonary assessment like fatigue, cognitive difficulties, as well as other organ involvement are needed.

Reprogramming was achieved using integration free, Sendai viral vector system expressing cocktail of transcription factors KOS, hc-MYC and hKLF4. Both the established cell-lines showed alkaline phosphatase activity, expressed ste...

Publication date: Available online 18 July 2019Source: Materials Today: ProceedingsAuthor(s): A. Rangaraj, P. MukeshAbstractBitumen is most widely used in the world for road construction. In India, bitumen demand was expected to reach 122 million tonnes by the analysis made in 2018, so we want some alternatives for future use. This research is based on partial replacement of bitumen by using waste rubber tyre chips as a percentage of 0%, 5%, 10%, 15% respectively. The properties of partially replaced bitumen can be analyzed from the tests such as penetration test, softening point test, viscosity test and ductility test, we...

Authors: Pai-Dhungat A Abstract When a patient presents with wheezing, pulmonary embolism is not usually considered as a possible cause. However bronchoconstriction can be caused by the embolism which produces wheezing that may be so obvious to make a diagnosis of bronchial asthma. Here we present a case of sub-massive pulmonary embolism presenting predominantly with wheezing without any previous history of cardio pulmonary diseases. The patient was treated for acute severe asthma in the beginning later suspected to have pulmonary embolism because of poor response to therapy and was confirmed by appropriate investi...
