Extracellular matrix formation is the major component of the restenosis lesion that develops after balloon angioplasty. Although ex vivo studies have shown that the synthesis of collagen is stimulated early after balloon angioplasty, there is a delay in accumulation in the vessel wall. The objectives of this study were to assess collagen turnover and its(More)
Among the four human malarial species, Plasmodium falciparum causes most of the mortality associated with malaria. Several approaches are being pursued to develop a suitable malaria vaccine since it may be the most effective weapon to fight against malaria. A highly immunogenic, synthetic protein consisting of 21 epitopes from pre-erythrocytic and blood(More)
An Hha 1 based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay developed for the detection of Brugia malayi, the causative agent of Brugian lymphatic filariasis, was evaluated for its sensitivity in the laboratory and for its usefulness in measuring changes in transmission of the disease in the field. Laboratory studies showed that the new assay was highly sensitive(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES There is a need to delimit the areas of filariasis transmission in view of the Filariasis Elimination Programme launched in India. Infection rate in vectors is an important parameter in determining transmission and it is conventionally assessed by dissection and microscopy. A PCR assay based on Ssp I repeats of Wuchereria bancrofti(More)
An efficient regeneration protocol for rapid multiplication of Dalbergia latifolia, an important multipurpose tree species, was developed through in vitro culture using axillary buds of young sprouts from superior genotype. 84.96% of the culture exhibited axillary bud sprouting from nodal segments on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 6benzyl(More)
The genus Escherichia is a member of the Enterobacteriaceae family and E. coli is the most common aerobic organism in the intestinal tract of man and warm-blooded animals. Most of the E. coli strains are harmless commensals that colonize the gastrointestinal tract and probably play important roles in maintaining intestinal physiology. E. coli plays a(More)
