BACKGROUND Antimicrobial resistance is a growing problem in H. pylori treatment. The study was intended to evaluate the prevalence of resistance amongst 80 H.pylori isolates cultured from biopsy taken during routine endoscopies in 2008-2011. MATERIALS AND METHODS 855 gastro duodenal biopsies were collected and cultured on H.pylori selective medium(More)
INTRODUCTION Human breastmilk is a dynamic, multifaceted biological fluid containing nutrients, bioactive substances, and growth factors. It is effective in supporting growth and development of an infant. As breastmilk has been found to possess mesenchymal stem cells, the importance of the components of breastmilk and their physiological roles is increasing(More)
PURPOSE The unmanageable side effects caused by current chemotherapy regimens to treat cancer are an unresolved problem. Although many phytonutrients are useful as chemoprevention without side effects, their effects are slower and smaller than conventional chemotherapy. In the present work, we examined the cumulative effect of two phytonutrients, curcumin(More)
OBJECTIVE Bioremediation technology has gained importance because microbes could be the convenient source of bio-absorption/bioaccumulation of metals from effluent streams. METHODS The nickel-resistant bacterial isolates (NiRBI) were selected from various bacterial isolates from industrial effluent and grown in nutrient broth containing different(More)
The purpose of this study was to produce a higher amount of cellulase by using an alternative carbon source, such as banana agrowaste, and to optimize the fermentation parameters for a high yield. In the present study, cellulase-producing Penicillium was isolated from a decaying wood sample. Different nutritional and environmental factors were investigated(More)
INTRODUCTION Virulent markers of H. pylori, the vacuolating cytotoxin (vacA), cytotoxin-associated gene A (cagA), induced by contact with epithelium factor antigen (iceA gene) and the urease C gene (ureC) may plays a major role in determining the clinical outcome of Helicobacter infections. AIM To detect the prevalence of the cagA, vacA, ureC and iceA(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) detection by histological staining methods, and to compare with those of Gram staining and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). METHODS This is a cross-sectional study conducted at the Department of Microbiology, Shree P. M. Patel Paramedical College, Anand, Gujarat, India on 436 patients attending the(More)
CONTEXT Validation of an accurate and less cumbersome noninvasive method to detect current Helicobacter pylori infection is a requisite for any laboratory. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to corroborate the usefulness of two commercially available kits NovaTec ELISA-A and ELISA-G, in the detection of ongoing H.pylori infection. MATERIALS AND(More)
Therapeutic potential of adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs) has widely been explored for treatment of orthopedic ailments. Transplantation of cells encapsulated in a scaffold facilitates 3 dimensional modelling of the tissue for the cases where well-defined spatial distribution of cells is desired for implantation. Present study aims to encapsulate canine(More)
