OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of bidi smoking on erythrocyte antioxidant status, membrane fluidity. DESIGN AND METHODS Thirty experimental and control subjects (mean age 35+/-5) were selected for the study. Experimental subjects smoke 22+/-4 bidis per day for 8-10 years. RESULTS Increase in plasma total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, triglycerides,(More)
Changes in biochemical composition in erythrocyte membrane, erythrocytic osmotic haemolysis, and nitrite and nitrate levels in plasma were analyzed in 12 human volunteers who were exposed regularly to prallethrin, a type I pyrethroid mosquito repellent. The results revealed a decrease in cholesterol (C) and phospholipid (P) moieties in erythrocyte membrane(More)
Continuous exposure of humans to pyrethroid-based mosquito repellents for longer durations may lead to adverse health effects. No information is available on long-term use of these mosquito repellents pertaining to the biochemical changes in human subjects. Therefore, the present study is an attempt to evaluate the status of health in human volunteers(More)
The natural fiber reinforced composites have the advantage of being light weight, renewable, bio-degradable, cheap and eco-friendly. So there is every need to investigate potentiality of natural fibers and its composites, which can be used in highly demanding situations. However, very small contribution of research work exists in the design and fabrication(More)
