BACKGROUND Routine screening of premature newborns for haemolytic streptococci, Staphylococcus aureus and enteric Gram-negative bacteria done at birth using umbilical swabs identified clustering of babies colonized with Bacillus cereus in summers of 2009 and 2010 at a 400-bedded UK general hospital. AIM To determine the source of this organism by focusing(More)
Phytochemical investigations of multiple shoot cultures of selected accessions AGB002 and AGB025 of Withania somnifera established in vitro utilizing shoot tip apices cultured on Murashige and Skoog's medium supplemented with BAP (1 mg/L) have been carried out. This has lead to isolation of four glycowithanolides viz. Withanoside IV (WSG-3), Withanoside VI(More)
Extravesicular and intravesicular zinc bindings were evaluated in brush border membrane vesicles isolated from rat kidney cortex. The process was found to be time-, temperature- and substrate concentration-dependent and displayed saturability. Zn2+ influx measurements revealed a progressive uptake and massive accumulation at equilibrium which was 50 times(More)
Data Mining, is the process of discovery of new patterns and knowledge from large dataset. Web mining is the application of data mining techniques to extract and mine useful knowledge and interesting patterns from World Wide Web .Web data including web documents, hyperlinks between documents, usage logs of web sites. The web usage data captures the identity(More)

Experimental fluorosis was induced in young male albino rabbits by exposing them to 0, 5, 10, 20 and 50 mg of NaF via subcutaneous injections for a period of 3-1/2 months. The testicular structural, nuclear and total proteins were significantly depleted in all test groups of animals as compared to the control. There was a significant (p < 0.001) reduction(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the variation of the menopause rating scale (MRS) scores with age, working/non-working and educated/uneducated status in a cohort of north-Indian subpopulation and to look for the possible reasons for the incurred variations. MRS is a well-known and validated instrument for assessing the frequency and intensity of menopausal symptoms. (More)
In the early branching parasitic protist Entamoeba histolytica, pre-rRNA synthesis continues when cells are subjected to growth stress, but processing slows down and unprocessed pre-rRNA accumulates. To gain insight into the regulatory mechanisms leading to accumulation, it is necessary to define the pre-rRNA processing machinery in E. histolytica. We(More)
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES To propose a model of prediction of caring behaviour among nurses that includes spiritual intelligence, emotional intelligence, psychological ownership and burnout. BACKGROUND Caring behaviour of nurses contributes to the patients' satisfaction, well-being and subsequently to the performance of the healthcare organisations. This(More)
The accurate modeling of a time series using a Sugeno Fuzzy Inference System (FIS) requires an algorithm that can train the FIS to minimize the error of seen and unseen data points. Many researchers have used genetic algorithms to optimize the parameters of the FIS membership functions with a great deal of success. It is presented here that incorporating(More)
Skin, rich in lycopene, is an important component of waste originating from tomato paste manufacturing plants. A central composite design with five independent variables, namely solvent/meal ratio (20:1, 30:1, 40:1, 50:1, and 60:1v/w); number of extractions (1, 2, 3, 4 and 5); temperature (20, 30, 40, 50 and 60°C); particle size (0.05, 0.15, 0.25, 0.35 and(More)
