Primary open angle glaucoma in Nepal: Exploring the unknown
Background: Dealing with blindness related to primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) has always been challenging due to late detection as POAG can remain asymptomatic until end stage. Most eye hospitals in Nepal conduct ...
Detection of pulmonary nodules in chest tomosynthesis: Comparison with chest radiography, evaluation of learning effects and investigation of radiation dose level dependency
Chest tomosynthesis is a relatively recently introduced technique in healthcare, which produces section images of the chest at a lower radiation dose than computed tomography (CT) and with better depth resolution than ...
Initiation of Mammalian Mitochondrial DNA Replication
Mitochondria produce most of the adenosine triphosphate required in a eukaryotic cell and they contain their own genome. The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is a double stranded circular molecule that codes for proteins required ...
Titanium Oxide and Bone Anchorage: Role of the Complement System, and Delivery of Osteoporosis Drugs from Mesoporous TiO2
The clinical success of bone implants of titanium (Ti) is largely ascribed to the biological performance and the physicochemical properties of the outermost titanium(IV)dioxide (TiO2) layer. Several advancements have been ...
Haemostasis during pregnancy, labour and postpartum haemorrhage
Background: Haemostatic disorders are common in obstetric complications and may result in more severe complications if not detected. There is limited knowledge about viscoelastic methods, fibrinogen and Factor XIII and how ...
Two New Non-invasive Treatment Methods for Otitis Media with Effusion in Children and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea in Adults
Otitis media with effusion (OME) in children and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in adults are common conditions in medicine. Several surgical and non-surgical methods have been suggested for treatment of these diseases. ...

On the role of signaling pathways in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis
The problem with degenerating cartilage tissues is one of the major causes for disability worldwide. The aetiology of the cartilage degenerating disease osteoarthritis is elusive and considered to be multifactorial. The ...
Genotypic and phenotypic spectrum of mitochondrial diseases with focus on early onset mitochondrial encephalopathies
Early-onset mitochondrial encephalopathies comprise a challenging group of neurodegenerative disorders. This is due to their progressive nature, often leading to major disability and premature death, as well as their ...
Linking fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 and urokinase signalling to survivin expression in experimental arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic autoimmune joint disease, in which chronic inflammation and hyperplastic synovial tissue mediates destruction of cartilage and bone. Survivin is known as an intracellular inhibitor ...
