The traditional kanban system with fixed number of cards does not work satisfactorily in unstable environment. In the adaptive kanban-type pull control mechanism the number of kanban is allowed to change with respect to the inventory and backorder level. It is required to set the threshold values at which cards are added or deleted which is a part of the(More)
The haemagglutinin (HA) encoding gene and genes encoding for immunomodulatory proteins i.e., schlafen-like protein, epidermal growth factor and golgi anti apoptotic protein of camelpoxvirus (CMLV) obtained from Indian dromedarian camels were cloned and characterized. In this study, the size of the HA encoding gene obtained from the Indian CMLV is 941 bp(More)
Pseudomonas putida (NBAII-RPF9) was identified as an abiotic stress tolerant bacterium capable of growing at 45 °C as well as in 1 M NaCl. The proteins expressed by this bacterium when subjected to these two stresses were analyzed by 2D gel and MALDI-TOF/MS. Two parameters viz., heat/saline shock (20 min at 45 °C/1 M solid NaCl added at mid log phase and(More)
OBJECTIVE The efficacy of topical phenytoin in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers was evaluated in a controlled inpatient study. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Fifty patients were treated with topical phenytoin, and 50 patients matched for age, sex, and ulcer areas, depth, chronicity, and infection were dressed with dry sterile occlusive dressing.

Breathing is the most vital function for maintenance of life. Slow and deep breathing is an integral part of Pranayama and it reduces dead space ventilation and renews air throughout the lungs. The reported beneficial effects of deep breathing as a part of either long term or short term practice of Pranayama are well documented. However our knowledge about(More)
Cellular interleukin-10 (IL-10) gene from the peripheral blood mononuclear cells of the healthy Dromedary camel (Camelus dromedarius) and viral IL-10 (vIL-10) from the skin scabs of the Dromedary camels infected with contagious ecthyma (a parapoxviral infection in the camels) were amplified by polymerase chain reaction, cloned and characterized. Sequence(More)
Topoisomerase gene of pseudocowposvirus from Indian dromedarian camel was amplified by PCR using the primers of PCPV from Finnish reindeer and cloned into pGEM-T for sequence analysis. Analysis of amino acid identity revealed that Indian PCPV of camel shared 95.9-96.8 with PCPV of reindeer, 96.2-96.5 with ORFV and 87.5 with BPSV.
Background Antibiotic resistance in S. aureus is one of the major concerns and the rate of MRSA has dramatically increased in recent years. Clindamycin belongs to the MLS group and is used to treat skin and soft tissue infections. Resistance to clindamycin may be inducible (iMLSB) or constitutive (cMLSB) and it is present both in MRSA and MSSA. Treatment(More)
