Spirometry-based prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease & amp; associated factors among community-dwelling rural elderly
CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of COPD was found to be high among the rural elderly in this study. Interventions aimed at cessation of smoking and preparedness of health systems for diagnosis and management of COPD are hence required.PMID:35532589 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_358_19 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)

Retrospective study of the effect of sarcopaenia on post-operative outcomes in patients undergoing thoracic surgery
CONCLUSIONS: The mean area and density measurements in the PSM, and particularly in the PEC, were determined to be significantly higher in patients who survived after lung cancer surgery, suggesting that sarcopaenia could be a useful predictor of post-operative mortality risk and survival.PMID:35532590 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_909_19 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)

Comparing the chondrogenic potential of rabbit mesenchymal stem cells derived from the infrapatellar fat pad, periosteum & amp; bone marrow
CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrated that BM-MSCs had superior chondrogenic potential and generated better cartilage than IFP and P-MSCs in rabbits. Thus, BM-MSCs remain a promising candidate for rabbit articular cartilage regeneration.PMID:35532591 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_93_19 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)

The species distribution of ticks & amp; the prevalence of Kyasanur forest disease virus in questing nymphal ticks from Western Ghats of Kerala, South India
CONCLUSIONS: The circulation of KFDV was detected and its correlation with the prevalence in ticks near the fragmented forest and teak plantation areas of Wayanad district. Residents and visitors of these regions may become vulnerable to tick bites and to an increased risk of KFD as the distribution of established, infected tick populations continues to expand.PMID:35532592 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_234_19 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)

Clinico-microbiological profile of < em > Bacteroides fragilis < /em > with focus on molecular detection of emerging resistance
CONCLUSIONS: Rising resistance among B. fragilis is evident and there is a significant association between nim gene and metronidazole resistance. Improving awareness among clinicians is paramount in tackling AMR among these pathogens, as empirical anaerobic coverage may not be effective in all cases.PMID:35532593 | DOI:10.4103/ijmr.IJMR_2568_19 (Source: The Indian Journal of Medical Research)

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)
