Detection and isolation of Japanese encephalitis (JE) virus using mosquito inoculation and immunofluorescence techniques were attempted from female mosquitoes collected in JE endemic areas of Kolar and Mandya districts of Karnataka state, India, from 1985 to 1987. 65,388 mosquitoes consisting of 19 species in 1541 pools were processed. Of these, 18 pools(More)
Five hundred and twenty pig sera collected from Pune, Maharashtra State, India during 1980 were examined in Haemagglutination Inhibition (HI) tests to determine the antibody prevalence to nine human influenza virus strains covering the subtypes A(HON1), A(H1N1), A(H2N2), A(H3N2), type B and one swine influenza virus strain A(Hsw1N1). This study indicated(More)
Aim of the present study was to improve the solubility and dissolution rate of poorly water soluble, BCS class-II drug Ketoprofen (KETO) by solid-dispersion approach. Solid dispersions were prepared by using polyvinylpyrrolidone K30 (PVP K30) and d-mannitol in different drugs to carrier ratios. Dispersions with PVP K30 were prepared by kneading and solvent(More)
Larvae of Rhipicephalus haemaphysaloides were infected with Kaysanur Forest disease (KFD) virus by feeding on viraemic rodents and reared into next generation larvae. Fed larvae, nymphs, unfed adults, fed adult males, and females after oviposition were found infected, while the larvae were found free from infection. Nymphs and adults transmitted the(More)
Entomological investigations were carried out in areas affected by Japanese encephalitis (JE) in Mandya District, Karnataka, India, from 1983 to 1988, to determine species composition and the density of mosquito vectors, in relation to the incidence of JE cases. JE cases occurred in two spells in a year, one during April-June (summer epidemic) and another(More)
A colony of rosy eye mutants of Aedes aegypti was established. This strain was refractory to Chikungunya virus by oral route of infection when compared with the wild-type parent strain. The refractoriness of this strain seems to be due to a mesentronal barrier, since both the mosquito strains supported the multiplication of virus after intrathoracic(More)
OBJECTIVE Present research communication was towards the investigation of antifungal minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum fungicidal concentration (MFC) activity of some substituted clubbed thiazole-1,3,5-triazines derivatives and effect of physicochemical properties on bioactivity. MATERIAL AND METHODS MIC and MFC were evaluated against(More)
