    A search for a new Spin-0 scalar particle decaying to Zγ\gamma, with the Z boson further decaying to pairs of electrons or muons is presented. The analysis is based on a data set of proton-proton (pp) collisions at s\sqrt{s} = 13 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb1^{-1} collected with the CMS detector at the LHC in 2016 during Run-2. The analysis extracts the background directly from data, through an unbinned likelihood fit. The results discussed are from combined leptonic channels of previous published studies interpreted in terms of upper limits on the production cross section of narrow and broad spin-0 resonances for scalar masses between 300 GeV (μ+μγ\mu^{+}\mu^{-}\gamma channel) or 350 GeV (e+eγe^{+}e^{-}\gamma channel) and 4 TeV

    Background: Ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) in a broader terminology newly introduced in the field of ophthalmology that includes conjunctival malignancies which ranges from mild epithelial dysplasia to invasive squamous cell carcinoma. The routinely used topicalchemotherapy for OSSN is mitomycin C (MMC), 5‑fluorouracil, interferon‑alpha, and cidofovir, and among these, MMC is usually preferred by most of the ophthalmologists because of its cost-effectiveness and lesser side effects. Aim: The aim of study was to evaluate the role of MMC as an adjuvant therapy in the management of OSSN. Methodology: Patients in the age group of 40 years and above with a diagnosis of OSSN were included as our study subjects. The diagnosis of OSSN was made based on the clinical presentation. A total of 20 patients with OSSN were taken as our study subjects. The tumor was surgically removedin toto along with 3–4 mm of uninvolved conjunctiva. Further, 0.4 mg/ml of MMC was applied over the excised site. Postoperatively, 0.04% MMC eye drops were given for 2 weeks with a dosage of 4 times/day. Results: Postoperatively, only single patient (4%) had recurrence which had developed after 6 months.. Other postoperative complications that had occurred were one patient had allergic conjunctivitis and the other patient had punctate erosion. Rest all patients were have no symptoms after the procedure and application of MMC. Conclusion: The topical use of MMC eye drop in the concentration of 0.04% has shown superior clinical results without any side effects and with a very few recurrence rate during the follow-up period of 1 year

    Extensive hypertrophic lupus erythematosus: Atypical presentation

    No full text
    Lupus erythematosus (LE) is a disease with a wide spectrum of cutaneous and systemic manifestations. Clinical features of patients with LE show a great variation, and for this reason it is difficult to develop a unifying concept of this disease. Our objective is to present a case of hypertrophic LE with atypical morphology and extensive involvement, who responded favorably to isotretinoin. Diagnosis of hypertrophic lupus erythematosus (HLE) was confirmed by characteristic histopathological findings. Combination therapy with isotretinoin and hydroxychloroquine resulted in flattening and repression of previously refractory skin lesions. Sometimes, HLE lesions may present a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma. In long standing lesions, squamous cell carcinoma may arise. Therefore, HLE requires adequate therapy with clinical and histopathological follow up

    Not AvailableA field experiment was conducted during rabi 2004-05 to 2008-09 at Research Farm of the Punjab Agricultural University Regional Station, Bathinda on sandy loam soil conditions to study the response of sowing methods, age of seedling and nitrogen levels on Indian mustard and rapeseed mustard. The experiment was laid out in split-split plot with three methods of sowing viz., Direct sowing (DS),transplanting of 30 days old nursery (T30), transplanting of 45 days old nursery (T45) as main plot treatments, two varieties of Indian mustard, PBR-91 and rapeseed,GSC-5 each in sub plots and three nitrogen levels, 75 % of recommended dose of N (N1 ),100 % of recommended dose of N i.e. 100 kg N/ha (N2 ) and 125 % of recommended dose of N (N3 ) in sub sub plots with three replications. The results revealed that both the varieties performed better under direct sown conditions, however, PBR 91 registered 13.2% significantly higher grain yield than GSC5 under direct sowing. Among the age of seedlings, transplanting of 30 days old nursery gave significantly higher seed yield than 45 days old nursery under all levels of nitrogen. Variety GSC 5 (rapeseed) performed better than PBR 91 variety of Indian mustard under all nitrogen levels. Among yield attributing characters, the plant height was significantly maximum in direct sowing followed by transplanting of 30 days old nursery and minimum in 45 days old transplantation. The variety PBR 91 showed 19 % increase in plant height than GSC-5. The seeds per siliqua were significantly higher under direct sown crop and GSC-5 variety. Maximum water expense efficiency (WEE) was found in direct sown crop followed by T30 and T45 treatments. The WEE was higher in GSC-5 in N1 and N2 levels, whereas, under N3 level maximum WEE was recorded in PBR-91 variety. There was lesser difference in WEE of various N levelsNot Availabl

    Not AvailableThis study was conducted on sandy loam soil in semi arid region of Punjab at PAU Regional Research Station, Bathinda. Four different American cotton Bt hybrids (RCH134 BG I, MRC 6304 BG I, MRC 7017 BG II, MRC 7031 BG II) and one American variety (LH 2076) were compared to study the effect of sodic water (Residual sodium carbonate 6.4 meq/l and electrical conductivity 2200 µmhos/cm) on growth and seed cotton yield as compared to good quality canal water irrigation. The results revealed that various yield attributing characters varied significantly with quality of irrigation water among various cultivars of upland cotton tested in the experiment. Among different cultivars MRC 7017 showed excellent performance even under sodic water. The reduction in seed cotton yield in sodic water irrigation as compared to canal water was the lowest in MRC 7017 (4.6%), followed by MRC 7031 (8.5%), MRC 6304 (10.5%), RCH 134 (10.6%) and LH 2076 (18.5%). Similar trend was observed in yield attributing characters also.Not Availabl

    Introduction: Development of regional surveillance programs is necessary for the development of community-acquired urinary tract infection (UTI) guidelines, especially for sub-urban and rural areas where empirical treatment is the mainstay in the absence of proper diagnostic modalities. Our aim was to evaluate the bacteriological profile and antibiotic sensitivity patterns in children with UTI prospectively from a tertiary care center. Methods: A total of 800 children up to 18 years of age with suspected UTI attending our center were included. For all suspected cases urine microscopy, gram staining, and culture were done. Antibiotic sensitivity was performed on selected antimicrobials using disk diffusion method following Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute guidelines. Results: Majority of pathogens were isolated from female (54.2%) patients. Pre-teens (52.1%) and teens (27.1%) were most commonly affected age group. The most common presentation in culture-proven UTI was fever with urinary symptoms (33.3%). In a group of 192 patients 26.7% had proven UTI. Escherichia coli (42.3%) was the most common aetiological agent, followed by Enterococcus fecalis (13.5%), Klebsiella spp. (11.5%) and Staphylococcus aureus (11.5%). Most active antibiotics against Gram-negative isolates were nitrofurantoin, cefotaxime, and amikacin. Gram-positive isolates were sensitive to nitrofurantoin, cotrimoxazole, and novobiocin. Conclusion: E. coli was the commonest isolate. The organisms grown in significant numbers were E. fecalis, Klebsiella spp. and S. aureus, causing UTI in 0–18 years of age group. Gram-negative isolates were sensitive to nitrofurantoin, amikacin, and cefotaxime. Gram-positive isolates were sensitive to nitrofurantoin, cotrimoxazole, and novobiocin. Prospective, regional studies are ensured periodically to explain bacteriological profile and antibiotic sensitivity patterns to be applicable for children with UTI over that geographic area
