Conclusion: RRI is an affordable, non invasive and easily available tool which can be included as part of a routine Ultrasonographic evaluation in liver cirrhotics. The RRI can be used for assessing early onset of HRS and in follow up. Large volume paracentesis, Noradrenaline with Albumin infusion (5 gms/litre of ascitic fluid removed) is as effective as other costlier options for refractory ascitis.

Abstract Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) and West Nile virus (WNV) are two major mosquito borne flaviviruses belonging to same serocomplex. JEV is transmitted by Culex mosquitoes and the reservoir host for the virus is pigs and/or water birds. WNV is also transmitted by Culex mosquitoes and reservoir host in this case is birds. It can also be transmitted through contact with other infected animals, their blood, or other tissues. The envelope protein of these viruses is the major source of epitopes and provides protective immunity. Bioinformatics tools were used to identify conserved epitopes in the envelope prot...

Current M3, considering anesthesia. I have a hunch I know the answer to this question, but just thought I'd confirm: Is it possible to have a practice geared towards Allergy/Pulm medicine after completing a CCM fellowship post-residency? I realize this is largely in the realm of IM, but was wondering if anyone has anecdotal examples.
The present work unveils unanticipated fibrogenic properties of B lymphocytes in humans and demonstrates their direct contribution to tissue fibrosis in the pathogenesis of IgG4-related disease.
We show that co-factors (sleep deprivation and exercise) cause a reduction in reactivity threshold to peanut by 45% and accounting for this variation in population threshold estimates will more accurately guide reference doses for allergen risk management..
