The weighted reverse Poincaré-type estimates for the difference of two convex vectors

In this paper we develop Caccioppoli-type estimates for arbitrary convex vectors and the vectors having both convex and concave arguments. To do this, we first develop these estimates for smooth convex vectors and then, through mollification, extend the results for arbitrary convex vectors. These types of estimates are valuable in the problems of financial mathematics for the ...

Reverse Poincaré-type inequalities for the difference of superharmonic functions

In this paper, we develop the weighted square integral inequalities for the difference of two smooth superharmonic functions. Then we prove the existence and integrability of the Sobolev derivative for superharmonic functions. The inequalities are generalized for the difference of two weak superharmonic functions. We also establish that the superharmonic approximation is indeed the ...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy: ten year experience at a tertiary care hospital in Pakistan

Objective There is very little literature regarding Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy (TTC) from the Asian Countries other than Japan and Korea. We conducted this study to determine the demographics, clinical presentations, complications and recovery of left ventricular (LV) systolic function in TTC patients of Pakistani origin. Methods A ten years retrospective case series study of TTC was ...

Peripartum cardiomyopathy: ten year experience at a tertiary care hospital in Pakistan

Background There is very little literature regarding peripartum cardiomyopathy from the Asian countries. We conducted this study to determine demographic details, clinical presentations, complications and recovery of left ventricular (LV) systolic function in peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCMP) patients of Pakistani origin. Method A ten year retrospective case series of PPCMP was ...

A Novel Reading Scheme for Assessing the Extent of Radiographic Abnormalities and Its Association with Disease Severity in Sputum Smear-Positive Tuberculosis: An Observational Study in Hyderabad/India

Background Existing reading schemes for chest X-ray (CXR) used to grade the extent of disease severity at diagnosis in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) are often based on numerical scores that summate specific radiographic features. However, since PTB is known to exhibit a wide heterogeneity in pathology, certain features might be differentially associated with clinical ...

Immune-Related Transcriptome of Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki Workers: The Defense Mechanism

Formosan subterranean termites, Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki, live socially in microbial-rich habitats. To understand the molecular mechanism by which termites combat pathogenic microbes, a full-length normalized cDNA library and four Suppression Subtractive Hybridization (SSH) libraries were constructed from termite workers infected with entomopathogenic fungi (Metarhizium ...

Isocitrate Dehydrogenase of Helicobacter pylori Potentially Induces Humoral Immune Response in Subjects with Peptic Ulcer Disease and Gastritis

BackgroundH. pylori causes gastritis and peptic ulcers and is a risk factor for the development of gastric carcinoma. Many of the proteins such as urease, porins, flagellins and toxins such as lipo-polysaccharides have been identified as potential virulence factors which induce proinflammatory reaction. We report immunogenic potentials of isocitrate dehydrogenase (ICD), an ...

Ancestral European roots of Helicobacter pylori in India

Background The human gastric pathogen Helicobacter pylori is co-evolved with its host and therefore, origins and expansion of multiple populations and sub populations of H. pylori mirror ancient human migrations. Ancestral origins of H. pylori in the vast Indian subcontinent are debatable. It is not clear how different waves of human migrations in South Asia shaped the population ...

Comparative genomics of Helicobacter pylori isolates recovered from ulcer disease patients in England

Background Genomic diversity of H. pylori from many different human populations is largely unknown. We compared genomes of 65 H. pylori strains from Nottingham, England. Molecular analysis was carried out to identify rearrangements within and outside the cag-pathogenicity-island (cag PAI) and DNA sequence divergence in candidate genes. Phylogenetic analysis was carried out based on ...
