OBJECTIVES To investigate and characterize Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) in patients with Crohn's disease, attendants of animals with suspected infection, and healthy humans, using multiple diagnostic tests. METHODS A total of 119 samples (35 stool, 76 serum, three blood clots, and five biopsies) were collected from five patients(More)
Efficacy of IS900 blood PCR was evaluated for the presence of MAP infection. Serum, fecal, and blood samples of kids, young, and adult goats from farm and farmer's herds in Mathura district were also screened by ELISA, microscopy and culture. Of 111 goats (kids: 40, young: 14, adults: 57) screened, 77.5% were positive by blood PCR. Of 76 goats, 90.8% (kids:(More)
Therapeutic efficacy of an "Indigenous vaccine" has been evaluated with respect to a commercial vaccine (Gudair, Spain), for the control of clinical Johne's disease (JD) in naturally infected goatherds. Seventy-one goats (JD positive) were randomly divided into 3 groups ("Bison", "Gudair" and "Sham-immunized"). After vaccination, goats were monitored for(More)
This paper comparator networks-a well-known model of parallel computation. This model is used extensively for keys arrangement tasks such as sorting and selection. This work investigates several aspects of comparator networks. It starts with presenting handy tools for analysis of comparator networks in the form of conclusive sets-non-binary vectors that(More)
In speaker diarization, the speech/voice activity detection is performed to separate speech, non-speech and silent frames. Zero crossing rate and root mean square value of frames of audio clips has been used to select training data for silent, speech and non-speech models. The trained models are used by two classifiers, Gaussian mixture model (GMM) and(More)
Greedy perimeter stateless routing (GPSR), a scalable routing protocol for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) that use the randomized positioning of routers in different configurations and algorithms are used to make packet delivery decisions through nodes. As the number of destinations increases this protocol scales better in per-router state than(More)
In present pilot study aimed to estimate, presence of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) antibodies in the human serum samples originating from North India using "Indigenous absorbed ELISA kit" (ELISA kit). The phase I, "ELISA kit" was optimized using protoplasmic antigen from native isolate of MAP "Indian Bison type" recovered from the(More)
