Development & amp; validation of scales to assess stigma related to COVID-19 in India
CONCLUSIONS: Validity and reliability of the two stigma scales indicated that the scales were comprehensible and had moderate internal consistency. These scales could be used to assess COVID-19 stigma and help in the development of appropriate stigma reduction interventions for COVID-19 infected, and mitigation of stigmatizing attitudes in the community.PMID:35645090 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.ijmr_2455_21 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)

Clinicopathological study of annexin A5 & amp; apelin in pre-eclamptic placentae with emphasis on foetal outcome
CONCLUSIONS: The results of the present study suggest that both ANXA5 and apelin levels are reduced in pre-eclamptic placentae. Hence, it is recommended to further explore the impact of these markers on pregnancy outcomes by undertaking randomized controlled trials.PMID:35645092 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_433_21 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)

Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 promoter sequence variations in idiopathic osteonecrosis of head of femur
CONCLUSIONS: Our findings demonstrate that the minor alleles of promoter region sequences of the PAI-1 gene do not contribute to an increase in ONFH predisposition. However, this is a preliminary study and its findings should be considered as suggestive for studies to be done in a larger sample size.PMID:35645093 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_496_19 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)

Tafenoquine for Plasmodium vivax malaria: Concerns regarding efficacy & amp; safety
Indian J Med Res. 2022 May 20. doi: 10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_1167_19. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPlasmodium vivax (P. vivax) malaria is a major problem in various countries such as America, Southeast Asia, Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean. The major barrier in controlling P. vivax malaria is its ability to remain in the liver as a hypnozoite form which is responsible for relapse of P. vivax malaria; hence it is necessary to target both the blood (schizont) as well as the liver (hypnozoite) stages of P. vivax to prevent its relapse. A number of factors limit the use of primaquine (PQ), the currently available therapy for P....
