Neutralization assays for SARS-CoV-2: Implications for assessment of protective efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines
Indian J Med Res. 2022 May 6. doi: 10.4103/ijmr.ijmr_2544_21. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe WHO emergency use-listed (EUL) COVID-19 vaccines were developed against early strains of SARS-CoV-2. With the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern (VOCs) - Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Omicron, it is necessary to assess the neutralizing activity of these vaccines against the VOCs. PubMed and preprint platforms were searched for literature on neutralizing activity of serum from WHO EUL vaccine recipients, against the VOCs, using appropriate search terms till November 30, 2021. Our search yielded 91 studies meeting the inc...

Coronin-1 levels in patients with tuberculosis
CONCLUSIONS: Coronin 1a appears to play an important role in the TB disease pathophysiology and agents developed against coronin may have a role in the treatment of TB. Further studies are required to assess if coronin-1a levels are elevated in non-tubercular infective a etiologies and whether these can be a potential drug target in patients with TB.PMID:35532565 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_4343_20 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)

Concurrent dengue infections: Epidemiology & amp; clinical implications
Indian J Med Res. 2021 May;154(5):669-679. doi: 10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_1219_18.ABSTRACTMultiple dengue virus (DENV) serotypes circulating in a geographical area most often lead to simultaneous infection of two or more serotypes in a single individual. The occurrence of such concurrent infections ranges from 2.5 to 30 per cent, reaching as high as 40-50 per cent in certain dengue hyper-endemic areas. Concurrent dengue manifests itself differently than mono-infected patients, and it becomes even more important to understand the effects of co-infecting serotypes in concurrent infections to ascertain the clinical outcomes of the di...

Anti-angiogenic therapy in ovarian cancer: current situation & amp; prospects
Indian J Med Res. 2021 May;154(5):680-690. doi: 10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_1160_19.ABSTRACTOvarian cancer (OC) is one of five leading causes of cancer related death among women worldwide. Although treatment has been improving, the survival rate has barely improved over the past 30 years. The fatality rate is due to asymptomatic early signs and the lack of long-term effective treatment strategies for advanced disease. Angiogenesis is an important process in tumour growth and metastasis and is the creation of new blood vessels from existing blood vessels. It is a dynamic and complex process involving various molecular regulatory path...

Utility of < sup > 18 < /sup > F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET-CT scan in detecting bone marrow involvement in lymphoma
CONCLUSIONS: 18F-FDG PET/CT has a good sensitivity and NPV for detecting BMI in HL and aggressive lymphoma. The low specificity and PPV improved if marrow uptake pattern on interim or end-of-treatment 18F-FDG PET/CT scan was analyzed. In patients with HL who are staged with18F-FDG PET/CT at baseline and followed up with an interim/end-of-treatment PET/CT, baseline BMB may be avoided. For all other lymphoma subtypes, BMB may be essential if there is no marrow FDG uptake on PET/CT scan performed at baseline.PMID:35532587 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_1420_19 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)

Risk factors for gallbladder cancer development in northern India: A gallstones-matched, case-control study
CONCLUSIONS: Poor bowel habits and drinking unsafe water appear to be the main risk factors for developing GBC. These are, however, modifiable factors which are capable of decreasing the risk of GBC in the north Indian population.PMID:35532588 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_201_19 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)
