In the present study an arsenite, As(III), tolerating bacterium, MR4, was isolated from Mulla River Pune, India, capable of reducing arsenate to arsenite and identified as Klebsiella pneumoniae (HQ857583). Comparative proteomic analysis using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DGE) and matrix assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight-time of… (More)
BACKGROUND Psidium guajava L., Myrtaceae, is used widely in traditional medicine for the treatment of diarrhoea, dysentery, gastroenteritis, stomachaches, and indigestion. However, the effect of the leaf extract of P. guajava on the pathogenesis of infectious diarrhoea has not been studied. The present study evaluates the effect of a hot aqueous extract… (More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Dental plaque has been suggested as a reservoir for Helicobacter pylori, though data in this regard are conflicting. We evaluated the prevalence of H. pylori DNA in dental plaque using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). METHODS Antral H. pylori status of 156 patients with acid-peptic disease (APD) was studied by rapid urease test (RUT),… (More)
A combinatorial mini library of naphthalene substituted chalcones has been prepared by solution phase chemistry. Screening of these mixtures for leukotriene B4 inhibitory activity using human whole blood assay (HWBL) afforded a lead compound, 1-(6-butoxy-2-naphthyl)-3-(4-nitrophenyl)-prop-2-en-1-one (K4A3) with an IC50 value of 18.5 microM.
Over a period of 6 years 192 cases of urosepsis have been recorded and managed in our urological department. In almost all cases (97%) the primary focus of infection was the urinary tract and the responsible microorganisms were Gram-negative rods, in order Enterobacter, B. Proteus, E. Coli, Klebsiella and others. Clinical features were dominated by symptoms… (More)
