    ABSTRACT: Introduction: HPV-E6 oncoprotein of High-Risk HPV plays critical role in the degradation of p53 protein for acquisition of malignant phenotype in cervix cells. The present study, was sought to analyze the expression of HPV-E6, p53 and p21 in cervical cancer to explore possible impact of HPV-E6 in the modulation of these proteins. Methods: The expression of HPV16/18-E6, p53 and p21 proteins in cervix tissues [normal (n = 100), cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN; n = 67), squamous cell carcinoma (SCCs; n = 153)] was analyzed by immunohistochemistry and revalidated by Western Blotting. The p53 protein functionality was determined by using phosphospecific p-p53-ser46 antibody. Results: The negative expression of HPV-E6 and p53 but, mild immunoreactivity of p21 was noticed in normal stratified squamous epithelium. In CIN and SCCs, the HPV-E6 was found to be predominantly over-expressed in 80.0% and 84.9% of cases respectively. Significant nuclear accumulation of p53 was observed in 77.6% of precancerous and 83.0% of cancerous tissues whereas, 74.6% of CIN and 73.8% of SCCs represented loss of nuclear p21 expression as compared to normal (p = 0.0001, p = 0.0001). Pearson's correlation test revealed significant inverse association between p53 and p21 proteins both in CIN (p = 0.0001) and SCCs (p = 0.0001). Interestingly, significant positive association of HPV-E6 with p53 and negative association with p21 were also detected in CIN (p = 0.0001) and SCCs (p = 0.0001). No positive expression of p-p53-ser46 was detected in any of the cases. Discussion: The present study provides the evidences of inhibition of p53 and p21 transactivity by HPV-E6 resulting alteration of cell growth inhibitory signals in cervical cancer.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: Surgical resections in the maxilla and mandible due to varied etiologies may lead to significant facial deformities, altered oral functions and subsequent psychological problems, raising the need for advanced reconstruction techniques. The goal of reconstruction being establishment of mandibular continuity with acceptable cosmetic result, establishment of osseous alveolar base for further dental rehabilitation and correction of soft tissue defect.The present study was aimed for observing the length of the fibular graft with maximum height and width along which the implants with bigger diameter and maximum height can be fitted. Methods: The study was conducted on thirty dry human fibula bones. The mean length of fibular bone extending from the styloid process to the lateral malleollus was calculated. The mean width at the midpoint was recorded. The mean width of the medial, lateral and posterior surfaces was assessed for compatibility of different standard commercially available dental implant systems. Results: The study recorded the mean length of the fibula (X-Y) as 35.58 cm, ranging between 32 and 40 cm. Mean length of the bone available for graft (W-Z) is recorded as 16.72 cm. The mean width at the midpoint (A) being 12.83 mm. Discussion: The maximum width and height of the fibula existed from a point 30 mm proximal to the mid point and 20 mm distal to the mid point and fibular graft if procured between these two points will provide us with maximum width and height. This knowledge would help the maxillofacial surgeons to procure the vascularised graft.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: The variations of paranasal air sinuses are not uncommon and often pose a risk during a sinus surgery therefore knowledge of these variations is of great significance to rhinologist and E.N.T surgeons. The present study deals with these variations by computerized tomography scanning (CT scan) in adult individuals. Methods: CT scans of 100 patients were procured from Department of Radiology, Kamineni Institute of Medical Sciences, Narketpally, Andhra Pradesh. The scans were studied in both coronal and axial planes. Results: The variations found include deviated nasal septum, concha bullosa, paradoxical middle concha, Haller cells, agger nasi cells, Onodi cells and pneumatised inferior concha. A higher incidence of agger nasi cells was found followed by Haller cells and deviated nasal septum. The least variant was inferior concha anomaly followed by Onodi cells. Discussion: The precise details of variations of paranasal sinuses can now be visualized by CT scan imaging. These observations are of paramount significance to prevent unnecessary complications during sinus surgery.

    ABSTRACT: The proximal ulna shows angulations in the coronal plane and in the sagittal plane. The angulation in the coronal plane is named as varus angulation. The proximal ulna also deviates anteriorly to the long axis of shaft of ulna making an anterior angle (proximal dorsal angle of ulna). The angle between the posterior and superior surface of olecranon is olecranon angle.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: The necessity of studying the peculiarities of the structural organization of the testes is determined by its participation in performing important functions for the body - making spermatozoa and the production of male sex hormones. Despite the presence of works devoted to the study of the peculiarities of the structural organization of the testes, many questions remain unresolved or require clarification. Materials and methods: As a biological test object used white Mature rats male Wistar rats at the age of 2 months. Seminal glands of male rats were used as a trial material for study. Tissue samples was investigated using a digital microscope Axio Imager.M2 (ZEISS, Japan) with software for image analysis AxioVision SE64 Rel. 4.8.3 and ZEN 2011. When sightseeing microscopy studied morphological features of the structure of the testes, and then determined their morphometric parameters. Results: Found that in rats-males aged 2 months in the testes, the proportion of interstitial tissue to the area of convoluted seminiferous tubules is about 1:30. It is shown that in the period of puberty of male white rats the highest percentage of the total amount of the spermatogenic cells are Mature male sex cells - spermatozoa. Second in quantitative terms are male stem cells spermatogonia. Discussion: Development and sexual differentiation of the testes is a complex process. The most important indicator of the structural and functional development of the testis is characteristic of the spermatogenic reservoir. The obtained results clearly demonstrate the maturity of experimental animals.

    ABSTRACT: Down Syndrome (DS) is generally associated with mental retardation and developmental delay. The occurrence of DS is associated with multiple factors like maternal age, consanguineous marriage, early induced abortion etc. Chances of recurrences of DS in next pregnancy depend on the genetic constitution of the affected individual and the parents. So this study was done to find out the different types of cytogenetic abnormalities in DS patients and also the association of parental age to DS in a population in West Bengal. It is hoped that the present study will emphasize the need for genetic counseling of prospective parents as well as parents of individuals affected with DS, together with cytogenetic screening of pregnancies which are at high risk for DS.

    ABSTRACT: The sphenoid bone lies in the base of the skull between the frontal, temporal and occipital bones. Certain parts of the sphenoid bone are connected to each other by ligaments, such as caroticoclinoid ligament and interclinoid ligament which occasionally ossify and result in the formation of foramen.

    ABSTRACT: The endocrine pancreas plays a pivotal role in glucose metabolism. As regards the morphogenesis of the islets of Langerhans, there is conflicting data regarding the timing of appearance of the B cells, and, the proportion and arrangement of the B cells within the islets. The present work is a baseline study conducted in the Indian subcontinent. The histogenesis of the islets of Langerhans was studied and we also observed the expression of anti-insulin antibody in the islets at different gestational ages.
