Interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) hydrogel microspheres of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (NaCMC) and poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) were prepared by water-in-oil (w/o) emulsion crosslinking method for oral controlled release delivery of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, diclofenac sodium (DS). The microspheres were prepared with various ratios of(More)
The motivation for this work comes from two problems– test algebraic independence 5 of arithmetic circuits over a field of small characteristic, and generalize the structural property of 6 algebraic dependence used by (Kumar, Saraf, CCC'16) to arbitrary fields. 7 It is known that in the case of zero, or large characteristic, using a classical criterion(More)
We consider the problem of commutative rank computation of a given matrix space, B ⊆ F n×n. The problem is fundamental, as it generalizes several computational problems from algebra and combinatorics. For instance, checking if the commutative rank of the space is n, subsumes problems such as testing perfect matching in graphs and identity testing of(More)
BACKGROUND Vitex negundo L. (Verbenaceae) is a hardy plant widely distributed in the Indian subcontinent and used for treatment of a wide spectrum of health disorders in traditional and folk medicine, some of which have been experimentally validated. In present study, we aimed to investigate the anti-inflammatory effects of V. negundo in carrageenan-induced(More)
Green and renewable energy is interest of many researchers, governments and public due to upraising environmental impacts of greenhouse gas emission and increasing costs of the energy from fossil sources. In present electricity is one of the major problems. Electricity cannot be provided to population as per the requirement due to continuous increase in(More)
CONTEXT Zearalenone is a mycoestrogen and considered a mycotoxin. OBJECTIVE To establish whether zearalenone produced hepatotoxicity via oral administration. METHODS Zearalenone was orally administered at a dose of 50 mg, 100 mg and 200 mg ZEN/body weight/daily, respectively, for 14 days to three groups of BALB/c mice. Diagnostic modalities used to(More)
AIM Abnormalities in water balance are manifested as hyponatremia and hypernatremia and the present investigation shows the effect of water deprivation in hot and humid climatic condition of north eastern part of India. METHODS Twenty four BALB/c mice of either sex (weight 30-40 g) were used for a 13-week experiment to determine the effects of water(More)
