The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of aerobic exercise training on pulmonary function tests in healthy young men. We recruited twenty; apparently healthy male medical students aged 17-20 years. The subjects participated in a 16 weeks aerobic exercise plan. Pulmonary function test was recorded before the commencement of training and at the end of training. The data were analyzed by paired 't' test. P< 0.05 was considered significant. After the training there was significant improvement in pulmonary function tests (P < 0.05). In conclusion, the current study has shown that, there is significant positive relationship between aerobics training and pulmonary function in healthy young men. Source

The Lip prints are unique and distinguishable for every individual like fingerprints. Lip prints has been utilised in court at very few instances, more and more research need to be conducted in this field with regards to use of lip prints in personal identification and criminal investigation, it will certainly help as useful evidence in Identification and a tool to solve crime. The present study was aimed to study lip prints of different individuals in various quadrants of lip. The study group comprised of 50 males and 50 females. The materials used were lipstick, white bond paper and a magnifying lens. Present study shows that lip-prints are unique to an individual and behold the potential to act as a tool to solve crime.

Background and Objectives: The yeast like fungus candida is the most common fungal pathogen causing disease in the human beings. As the disease is usually chronic and treatment failure cases were commonly noted, so the study was conducted to know the prevalence and antifungal susceptibility pattern of various candida species isolated from clinical samples. Materials and Results: A total of 1702 subjects were selected, among which 60.2%were male and 39.8% were female. The identification of various candida species was done by saline wet mount, 10% KOH mount, Gram stain, germ tube test, culture on SDA, Chromagar, cornmeal agar, sugar fermentation tests and sugar assimilation tests. Antifungal susceptibility test was done by disc diffusion method.103 candida species were isolated from 1702 samples. Conclusion: Candida albicans is the most common species isolated from clinical specimen and the infection is almost same in both the sexes and predisposing factors like diabetes mellitus, prolonged contact it water were noted. They were advised correct treatment for diabetes mellitus, to limit the contact with water and maintenance of good personal hygiene. Source

Treatment and outcome of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) are the true success story of modern medicine. The data from the developing countries on long-term outcome of patients with HL is sparse. Aims: Primary objective is to assess the progression-free survival (PFS). Secondary objective are overall survival (OS) and toxicities. Settings and Design: This is a retrospective analysis from the case records from a single institution. Materials and Methods: Institutional Ethical Committee approval was obtained. Between January 1991 and December 2010, 301 patients (age ≥18 years) underwent treatment at our institution. Statistical Analysis: Kaplan-Meyer curves were used to calculate the PFS and OS. Results: The median age at presentation was 36 years, range from 19 to 75 years. The male to female ratio was 2.9:1. Seventy-five percent of patients had B symptoms. Majority presented in advanced stage (Stage III and IV) disease (64.7%). Mixed cellularity (74.4%) was the most common histology, followed by nodular sclerosis (13.9%). The most common chemotherapy regimen used was ABVD (61%). Conclusions: Median follow-up of the cohort was 18.5 months (range 2-225). PFS and OS rate at 5 years is 66.3% and 79.7% respectively. © 2015 Indian Journal of Medical and Paediatric Oncology. Source

The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of aerobic exercise training on pulmonary function tests in young healthy volunteers. We recruited eighty, apparently healthy medical students of either sex, aged 17-20 years. Randomization into experimental and control groups (40 each), was carried out with a table of random numbers. Experimental group participated in a 16 weeks aerobic exercise plan, while control group had no plan of exercise during that period of time. Pulmonary Function Test was recorded before the commencement of training and at the end of 16 weeks in both the groups. The data were analyzed by paired' test. P < 0.05 was considered significant. After 16 weeks of aerobic training there was significant improvement in pulmonary functions in the experimental group (P < 0.05). In conclusion, the current study has shown that, there is significant positive relationship between aerobic training and pulmonary function tests. Source
