  In today’s modern digital world, inconsistencies of behavior and attitudes surrounding privacy have been found that depend upon individuals and surrounding circumstances around them. Such inconsistencies have created a type of paradox surrounding privacy. This study attempts to review the theoretical or hypothetical and conceptual framework of privacy concerning this paradox and how privacy may be categorized into value-based and cognate based-privacy. The study further explains about what value-based privacy refers to and how it evolves from political, cultural, legal and economic perspective. The study also explains about what cognate-based privacy means and how it relates to cognition and perception and an assertion of control rather than to absolute moral value and norms. Finally, the study goes on explaining about what privacy is not and how privacy can be distinguished from anonymity, confidentiality, secrecy, security and ethics and if security and ethics is necessary for privacy.

  The study hypothesized that oxidative by-product like hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), would reacts with hemoglobin (Hb) and help to initiate autoimmunity in patients with type 1 diabetes. To test this hypothesis, Hb was modified by reactive oxygen species (ROS). Modification incurred in Hb was characterized by physico-chemical techniques. ROS-modified Hb was found to be highly immunogenic in rabbits as compare to native Hb. The binding characteristics of circulating autoantibodies in type 1 diabetes patients against native and ROS-modified Hb were assessed. Diabetes patients (n = 39) were examined by direct binding ELISA and their results were compared with healthy age-matched controls (n = 22). High degree of specific binding by 48% of patient`s sera towards ROS-modified Hb, in comparison to its native analogue (p<0.05) was observed. Competitive inhibition ELISA reiterates the direct binding results. Collectively, ROS caused extensive damage to Hb altering its immunogenicity, the neo-epitopes, thus generated might play a role in the induction of circulating autoantibodies in type 1 diabetes mellitus.
