This study was conducted to document the frequency ABO & rhesus blood groups in potential male blood donor belong to south area of Karnataka. Design: Observational cross sectional study. Settings: Blood transfusion center at Davangere, Karnataka. Methods The data of blood donors from July 2009 to December 2009. Results Total number of donors studied was 3,048. The commonest blood group was 0 present in 37. 87% followed by B in 29. 98%, A in 23. 88% and AB in 8. 29%. While 95. 41% donors were Rh positive and 4. 59% was Rh negative. The maximum donors were between in age group 20-39 years. The maximum prevalence of hemoglobin % ranges from 13. 0-13. 9 about 2,983 (75. 11%). The maximum prevalence of weight among the donors was between 60 to 69 kg about 1,201 (39. 40%) and the least weight appears between 80 to 90 kg about 254 (8. 4%). Conclusion Blood group 0 is the commonest ABO blood group and 95. 41% are Rh + in this area, the maximum prevalence of donors in age group, Hb% and Weight are 20. 39 years, 13. 0-13. 5 gm% and 50-69 kg respectively.

Depression is the leading cause of disability among women in the world, frequently under recognized and inadequately treated. In spite of the different antidepressants available at the present time, they are far from ideal and show a similar slow & frequently incomplete response. This case report describes a 75 yr. old woman with persistent depressive disorder with intermittent major depressive episodes lasting for almost 40 years who was inadequately treated. It highlights the effectiveness of augmentation of low dose Aripiprazole in long standing persistent depressive disorder with intermittent major depressive episodes. After optimization of treatment with a known anti-depressant the augmentation strategy can produce a therapeutic response as early as 2 weeks with more than 50% reduction in symptoms on PHQ-9 scores. © 2014, Sushil KSV.

In Forensic Anthropology, estimation of stature from feet dimensions plays an important role in establishing individual's identity. The foot length reflects a biological correlation with height suggesting that height may be estimated from shoe print length also. Various anthropometric studies have been conducted on foot in relation to growth and development, ergonomics, evaluation, orthopedics and other medical sciences. However, there is only little investigation, which focused on forensic importance of shoe print. Analysis of shoe prints can reveal very important clues, which can be used as forensic evidence in crime scene investigation. To study the relationship between Stature and Shoe Print length while walking, total 500 females from Karnataka in the age group of 18 to 21 years were examined. The stature estimation was done with linear and multiple regression equations. Recorded shoe print length was measured along parallel axis. The multiplication factors were also computed. The regression formula was checked for their accuracy and reliability. Highly significant and positive correlation was observed between stature and Shoe Print length while walking. Source

Objective There is a large and relative consistent literature on the effects of psychological stress on immune function in humans. The effect of psychological stress can alter the blood cells parameters such as white blood cell in healthy individuals. The assay of leukocyte in the peripheral blood may provide information on the immune status. Estimations of white blood cell were carried out in both absence and presence of examination stress. Comparison of pre-examination results to the results taken during exams was done in both males and females. It was observed that academic examination stress induces changes in the distribution of white blood cell, which indicate immune activation and which are probably due to stress-induced production of cytokines. In this present article, an effort is made to study the effect of psychological stress on leukocyte distribution in both males and females were studied by means of peripheral blood cell counts. Methods Out of 200 students enrolled, 150 students were selected. The study was conducted at department of physiology, S. S. Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Center, Davangere, India. Selection was done 5 months prior to the first terminal examination; they were subjected to preliminary medical checkup including blood pressure and temperature recordings. The students receiving long term medications are excluded from the study. Results When the differential counts in both males and female were compared, students showed significantly higher number of all the subsets of leucocytes. There is definite raise in the lymphocytes, neutrophil, monocytes, basophils and eosinophil during the examination period than earlier. Conclusion The present data indicate psychological stress increases leucocytes counts. Source

Objective To study the antinociceptive activity of four selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) viz., fluoxetine, fluoxamine, peroxetine and sertraline. Methods Antinociceptive activity was studied using hot water immersion test, tail flick method and hot plate method in albino rats. Drugs and normal saline (control) were given intraperitonially and the results were analyzed with suitable statistical application. Results Fluoxetine (10 mg/kg), fluoxamine (25 mg/kg), peroxetine (10 mg/kg) and sertraline (10 mg/kg) produced significant antinociceptive ffect in all the three experimental models (P < 0.001). Fluoxamine produced maximum effect among the four SSRIs. Conclusion As serotonin is an important mediator of pain, these SSRIs have shown considerable antinociceptive activity. These may be used as co-analgesics in diabetic neuropathy, diafferentiation pain, migraine and also in the patients of depression with pain. Further studies may widen the horizon of usage of SSRIs in the management of pain. Source
