In this study we genotyped ABO, Rhesus, Kell, Kidd and Duffy blood group loci in DNA samples from 120 unrelated individuals representing four Malay subethnic groups living in Peninsular Malaysia (Banjar: n = 30, Jawa: n = 30, Mandailing: n = 30 and Kelantan: n = 30). Analyses were performed using commercial polymerase chain reaction-sequence specific primer (PCR-SSP) typing kits (BAG Health Care GmbH, Lich, Germany). Overall, the present study has successfully compiled blood group datasets for the four Malay subethnic groups and used the datasets for studying ancestry and health.

Appropriate household water treatment methods in Ethiopia: household use and associated factors based on 2005, 2011, and 2016 EDHS data.

Environ Health Prev Med 2018 Sep 27;23(1):46. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Ethiopian Institute of Water Resources, Addis Ababa University, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Background: Diarrheal disease attributable to water and sanitation can be prevented using point-of-use water treatment. In Ethiopia, a small number of households treat water at point-of-use with appropriate methods. However, evidence on factors associated with household use of these treatment methods is scarce.

Gasdermin C is induced by ultraviolet light and contributes to MMP-1 expression via activation of ERK and JNK pathways.

J Dermatol Sci 2018 May 1;90(2):180-189. Epub 2018 Feb 1.

Electronic address:

Background: Ultraviolet (UV) radiation plays important roles in various skin diseases including premature aging and cancer. UV has been shown to regulate the expressions of many genes including matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). Gasdermin C (GSDMC) belongs to Gasdermin family and is known to be expressed in the epithelial cells of many tissues including the skin. Read More

Role of insulin like growth factor axis in the bleomycin induced lung injury in rats.

Exp Mol Pathol 2017 02 7;102(1):86-96. Epub 2017 Jan 7.

Department of Physiology, Vallabhbhai Patel Chest Institute, University of Delhi, Delhi 110007, India.

Background: Alveolar epithelial cell injury has been proposed as a causative factor for the onset and progression of pulmonary fibrosis. However, the role of type II alveolar epithelial cells (AECs) in the epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) is controversial.

Aims: The present study performed in rats instilled with bleomycin investigated a) the expressions of the insulin growth factor (IGF-1) and insulin growth factor binding protein 5 (IGFBP-5) and transforming growth factor (TGF-β1) in the type II AECs, b) the role of type II AECs in EMT and extracellular matrix (ECM) formation and, c) the effect of pioglitazone on all the above parameters.

Reaching Those Most in Need - A Call to Action for Advanced Parkinson's Disease.

Eur Neurol Rev 2016 ;11(1):20-21

Marlene and Paolo Fresco Institute for Parkinson's and Movement Disorders, Department of Neurology, New York University School of Medicine, New York, US.

Much of the clinical and research attention for Parkinson's Disease (PD) has focused on mild to moderate stages. As the disease advances, it can become difficult for patients to attend clinical visits. These patients are often lost to follow-up, and consequently, vanish from the pool of potential research subjects who could inform our management of this understudied population. Read More

Adenosine A receptors are necessary for protection of the murine heart by remote, delayed adaptation to ischaemia.

Acta Physiol Scand 2004 Oct;182(2):133-43

Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden.

Aims: Adenosine is involved in classic pre-conditioning (PC) in most species, acting through especially adenosine A1 and A3 receptors. We studied whether the adenosine A1 receptor (A1R) was important for remote, delayed adaptation to ischaemia using a mouse with targeted deletion of the A1R gene.

Methods: Remote, delayed adaptation was evoked by brain ischaemia (BIPC) through bilateral ligation of the internal carotid arteries. Read More
