Research Findings

Doses of chemotherapeutic agents have to be titrated to suit Indian cancer patients.

Hyperlactemia induced by HAART in HIV patients was studied and dose titration is recommended for Indian HIV patients

Diabetes Mellitus

Simple estimation of Fibrinogen levels to predict the risk of cardiovascular diseases in Diabetes Patients. Diabetic patients with Peripheral arterial diseases ( PAD)identified by Ankle Brachial Index(ABI) also showed increased fibrinogen levels confirming the importance of fibrinogen estimation to rule out CVD in Diabetics.

Diabetics affects the pharmacokinetics of antitubercular drugs and there is a delayed response to anti Tubercular agents in diabetics.

DLVO diffusion study of CO in Diabetics with COPD and COPD patients without Diabetics has clearly shown poor diffusion capacity of alveolar membranes indicating membrane thickness caused by Diabetes . In addition to regular monitoring for micro and macrovascular complications , it is necessary to screen diabetic patients for lungs diffusion capacity.

Regular testing on microalbuminurea in Diabetics would help to assess the risk of Proteinurea , because   after the onset of Proteinurea patients are left with drug treatment failing which they end up with dialysis.

Patients on Haemodialysis have to be thoroughly monitored for Parathyroid levels in addition to haemoglobin variability testing ,high parathyroid levels as the main factor for mortality in Haemodialysis patients.

Metformin induced Hyperhomocystenemia was confirmed , patients can be supplemented with supplement of Folic acid 2.5mg

MI: Hyperhomocysteinemia is the lone significant  risk factor to cause Myocardial infarction (MI) in young adults  without any conventional risk factors.

Gynaecology and Obstetetrics

Standard dose of 150 IU HMG causes ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome and reduces the success rate in conception whereas a medium dose of 112.5 IU  HMG induces ovulation optimally and success rate in conception is good.

Two doses of Betamethasone 12mg 24 hours apart to Prenant mothers with risk prevents respiratory distress Syndrome(RDS) in Pre term neonates.

COPD- Fluctuations in Magnesium levels is indicative of mortality in hospitalised COPD patients.

Head trauma /Consanguineous marriages are the main causative factors for seizures.
