The near-miss rate was 4.4 cases per 1,000 live births. The near-miss/death
ratio was GSK1210151A ic50 8.6 near-misses for each maternal death, and the overall mortality index was 10.4%. Hypertensive syndromes were the main cause of admission (67.7% of the cases, 107/158); however, hemorrhage, mainly due to uterine atony and ectopic pregnancy complications, was the main cause of maternal near-misses and deaths (17/43 cases of near-miss and 2/5 deaths).
CONCLUSIONS: Hypertension was the main cause of admission and of potentially life-threatening conditions; however, hemorrhage was the main cause of maternal near-misses and deaths at this institution, suggesting that delays may occur in implementing appropriate obstetrical care.”
“Towards establishing association of ISSR markers with antioxidant activity in Valeriana jatamansi, 5 distantly located populations were analysed. Total phenolics, flavonoids contents and antioxidant activity measured by three different in vitro assays, revealed a significant variation (p < 0.01) across populations.
The higher total phenolics (14.63 +/- 0.05 mg GAE/g dw), flavonoids (6.96 +/- 0.11 mg QE/g dw), tannin content (3.85 +/- 0.54 mg GAE/g dw) and antioxidant activity (ABTS – 4.82 +/- 0.18 mM AAE/100 mg; DPPH – 4.92 +/- 10.02 mM AAE/100 mg and FRAP – 7.54 +/- 0.02 mM AAE/100 mg) was observed in Kalika population. Information generated from 31 genotypes Pinometostat datasheet of the species using 13 ISSR markers showed a total of 97 fragments with high mean genetic diversity [percentage of polymorphic bands (PPB) - 69.90%, Shannon's information index (I) -0.39]. Out of 97 ISSR markers, only three (HB8-5, HB12-1
and 17898B-8) exhibited significant (p < 0.05) association with antioxidant activity measured by DPPH assay. Hence, it is recommended that any further selection of the genotypes/population using these markers can be useful for breeding programme that has associated with high antioxidant activity especially when no other genetic information such as linkage maps and Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) are available for the species.

“Study design: A retrospective study.
Objective: To elucidate the correlation PP2 in vivo between compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) amplitudes and responsible level of compressive cervical myelopathy (CCM), and the accuracy of level diagnosis by using CMAPs.
Setting: This study was conducted at the Department of Orthopedic surgery, Yamaguchi University Graduate School of Medicine, Japan.
Method: A total of 28 patients with CCM were investigated in this study. Erb’s point-stimulated CMAPs were measured from deltoid, biceps, triceps in all patients as compared with 88 healthy subjects. We performed a level diagnosis on the basis of CMAPs amplitudes.
