Solid state (substrate) fermentation (SSF) has been used successfully for the production of enzymes and secondary metabolites. These products are associated with the stationary phase of microbial growth and are produced on an industrial scale for use in agriculture and the treatment of disease. Many of these secondary metabolites are still produced by(More)
A facultative anaerobic pure bacterial culture L-2 capable of growth on 12.5% (v/v) diluted digested spent wash supplemented with glucose (10g/l) was isolated from an Indian distillery. It achieved 31% decolorization and 57% COD reduction after 7 days' incubation. The advantages of using such a culture for digested spent wash bioremediation are apparent in(More)
The posterolateral tunnel on the superior surface of the first cervical (atlas) vertebra is of normal occurrence in monkeys and other lower animals, but its presence in the form of a tunnel-like canal, for the passage of the third part of the vertebral artery over the posterior arch of the human atlas vertebra is not reported. The aim of the present study(More)
Peste-des-petits-ruminants (PPR), bluetongue (BT) and goatpox (GP) have been well recognized as causes of significant economic losses in the small ruminant population of Asia and Africa. We describe here the occurrence of these three in an outbreak noticed in non-descript goats from a subtropical region of central India. An investigation was carried out to(More)
The thermotolerant ethanol producing Kluyveromyces marxianus IMB3 yeast was used in eight 60m3 fermenters for industrial ethanol production in India using sugarcane molasses. Ethanol ranged between 6.0–7.2% (w/v) with added advantages of elimination of cooling during fermentation and shorter fermentation periods of 20h. © Rapid Science Ltd. 1998
Tapentadol is a novel, centrally acting analgesic with dual mechanism of action, combining mu-opioid receptor agonism with noradrenaline reuptake inhibition in the same molecule. It has an improved side effect profile when compared to opioids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The dual mechanism of action makes Tapentadol a useful analgesic to treat(More)
Sugammadex (ORG 25969) is a unique neuromuscular reversal drug; a novel cyclodextrin, the first in a new class of selective relaxant binding agents, which reverse neuromuscular blockade (NMB) with the aminosteroid non-depolarizing muscle relaxants rocuronium and vecuronium. Sugammadex can reverse moderate or deep NMB. The clinical use of sugammadex promises(More)
The caudal part of the fourth ventricle in adult rhesus monkeys, of both sexes, revealed the area postrema (AP) to be composed of bilateral spindle-shaped elevations located ventromedial to the gracile tubercles. Supraependymal (SE) elements, comprised of SE cells and/or fibre processes could be seen near the medial margin of a narrow oligociliated strip(More)
The ependymal structure of the fourth ventricle floor of adult rhesus monkeys was investigated using both scanning and transmission electron microscopy. Each half of the floor exhibited dense ciliation which decreased towards the median sulcus. The area postrema and the facial colliculus lacked cilia and were covered with non-ciliated ependymal cells. Along(More)
A study of family planning work in Kalynapur during 1968-1969 focuses on: 1) the characteristics of vasectomy and loop acceptors in terms of socioeconomic factors such as religion, caste, age, occupation, economic status, educational status, and number of children alive; and 2) the motivational factors among vasectomy and loop acceptors. 100 cases, 50 of(More)
