Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that diabetes mellitus is a serious health burden for both governments and healthcare providers. This study was hypothesized to evaluate the antihyperglycemic potential of eugenol by determine the activities of key enzymes of glucose metabolism in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced into(More)
An emerging aspect in learning environment is to effectively retrieve learning materials from learning object repositories. An extension of the IEEE LOM standard with a domain ontology and automatic annotation for effective retrieval of learning objects is proposed. To make best use of learning objects outside the Learning Management System, we associate(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES The leaves of Cleistanthus collinus, an extremely poisonous plant are consumed for suicidal purposes in various parts of India. The mortality rate is high and there is no antidote. In this study, we attempted to delineate oxidative stress as a possible mechanism of action of C. collinus toxicity in rats and the role of melatonin(More)
Aqueous extract of C. collinus leaves inhibited norepinephrine induced contraction in guinea pig vas deferens and aortic strip in a dose-dependent manner. Inhibition of acetylcholine induced contraction in ileum was dose independent. C. collinus extract per se had no effect on isolated guinea pig vas deferens and aortic strip, but inhibited norepinephrine(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of Edrophonium on blood glucose levels in euglycemic albino rats through OGTT. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve Swiss albino rats weighing around 150-200 gms of either sex were randomly selected from the central animal facility, JSSMC, Mysore and divided into two groups. The control group received distilled water (25ml/kg body(More)
This paper is devoted to mobile agents and their use for E-learning resource management. We provide a brief overview. The overview introduces the concept of mobile agent, enumerates the claimed benefits, and discusses the state of the art of application in this domain. With the rapid evolution of Internet, information overloading is becoming a common(More)
The construction of reliable and stable routes in a mobile ad hoc network is one of the primary research issues in equipping each device to continuously maintain the information required to properly route traffic. Mobility of nodes often leads to link failures and hence requires route reconstruction to resume the communication between the nodes. The(More)
