OBJECTIVES Acetaminophen is a commonly used antipyretic agent which, at high doses, causes renal tubular damage and uremia. Bacteriotherapy affords a promising approach to mitigating uremic intoxication by ingestion of live microbes able to catabolize uremic solutes in the gut. The present study evaluates the nonpathogenic soil-borne urease-positive(More)
The total antioxidative activity of L. ingluviei ADK10 isolated from chicken intestine intact cells and cell free culture supernatant (CFCS) was 54- 67.95%. The ability to scavenge a,a-Diphenyl-b-Picrylhydrazyl free radical ranged from 71 and 64% in intact cells and CFCS respectively. Total reducing activity of bacteria was equivalent to 290 microM/L of(More)
Uremia means excess nitrogenous waste products in the blood & their toxic effects. An acute acetaminophen (paracetamol, N-acetyl p-aminophenol; APAP) overdose may result into potentially fatal hepatic and renal necrosis in humans and experimental animals. The aims of this present study were to investigate the protective effect of alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) on(More)
The main objective of this study was to obtain chitin in pure form from a new crustacean waste material for industrial applications. Black tiger shrimp shell wastes are a rich source of protein and valuable bioactive carbohydrate polymers such as chitin. After removal of carotenoid, Black tiger shrimp shell wastes (BTSHWs) were treated with chemicals and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate phytochemical screening, antimicrobial activity and qualitative thin layer chromatographic separation of flavonoid components, antioxidant activity and total flavonoid compound of Terminalia arjuna. METHODS For phytochemical screening, some common and available standard tests were done. Antimicrobial bioassay was done through agar(More)
This study aimed to explore the bactericidal activity of a feather-degraded active peptide against multiple-antibiotic-resistant (MAR) Staphylococcus aureus. An antibacterial peptide (ABP) was isolated from the chicken feathers containing fermented media of Paenibacillus woosongensis TKB2, a keratinolytic soil isolate. It was purified by HPLC, and its mass(More)
In the present study, Lactobacillus ingluviei ADK10 (Acc. No. JQ395039) from intestinal origin was tested for its probiotic characteristic as well as uremia ameliorating activity on acetaminophen induced uremic rats. The results revealed that L. ingluviei ADK10 was able to tolerate pH 3.0–9.0 and 0.5% bile salt along with good hydrophobicity (67%) and(More)
Nearly all biological or physiological functions are in some way related to one or other aspects of morphology. The morphometric variables of human body can be measured by the fundamental techniques of anthropometry. To be more specific, biological anthropology is substantially enriched due to the contribution relating to application of anthropometry made(More)
Currently kidney disease appears a foremost problem across the world. Acetaminophen is a commonly used antipyretic agent, which in high doses, causes uremia and used for experimentally induction of kidney disease. Bacteriotherapy affords a promising approach to mitigate uremic toxins by ingestion of urease positive bacteria, probiotics and symbiotic able to(More)
Uremia is a major feature of chronic kidney diseases (CKD). Studies were conducted with a standard urease producing probiotic strain, Streptococcus thermophilus (MTCC 1938) to explore the effectiveness of probiotic organism against uremia. The therapeutic potential of the probiotic bacterium was tested against acetaminophen (APAP) induced uremic rats.(More)
