Impact of chronic formaldehyde exposure in respect of route on behaviour was studied. Preconditioned (environmental) male albino rats (340-400 g) in 3 groups (n = 5) under 60 days oral and systemic exposure to 10 mg/kg/day HCHO were examined for their behavioural performance (i.e. short term memory) in Cook's apparatus. Twenty percent rats settled in grade… (More)
Formaldehyde (HCHO) exposure in industry causes health impairment, especially immune profile. Male albino rats when exposed to HCHO at 5, 10, 15 mg/kg day for 30 days showed decrease in thyroid weight in 10, 15 mg/kg/day HCHO fed group with commensurate follicular regression (epithelial cells), decreased triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxin (T4) deficiency and… (More)
Disseminated intravascular coagulation occurred in dogs given scorpion venom subcutaneously in doses of 3 mg./kg. body weight. Treatment with heparin reversed the coagulation abnormality of the syndrome and 10 out of 12 dogs survived. Necropsy findings in human patients stung by scorpions suggest that this syndrome also occurs in man.
In order to deal with human biological problems, life scientists have started investigating artificial ways of generating tissues and growing cells -- leading to the evolution of tissue engineering. In this paper we explore visualization practices of life scientists working within the domain of tissue engineering. We carried out a small scale ethnographic… (More)
