Authors: Mukherjee D, Mitra S Abstract In developing countries, pedestrian safety is an issue of major concern. Although an extensive body of literature is available on the identification of elements related to the pedestrian's risk; the studies are primarily conducted in urban areas of developed countries. The findings from these studies may only be partially relevant to the cities of an emerging country such as India. The present study analyzes historical crash records obtained from the "Kolkata Police" and identifies the risk factors at the road network level for the hazardous corridors posing a high r...

Conclusion: Fibroscan could be a valuable tool to assess the degree of liver fibrosis in patients with elevated SF, but it does not appear to reliably predict LIC in such group of patients especially with severe iron overload. FS values were not affected by disease type, age above 12 years, or HCV sero-positivity.FigureDisclosuresNo relevant conflicts of interest to declare.
