In ischaemic heart conditions we report a remarkable increase in platelet xanthine oxidase activity and rise in the levels of malondialdehyde (MDA) with concomitant decrease in the activities of free radical scavenging enzymes - superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase. The increased levels of free radical generating(More)
In an ultrastructural study undertaken on donovanosis, the inflammatory response was studied along with the fine structure of causative organisms, Calymmatobacterium granulomatis. Macrophages were seen to be activated and showed presence of numerous filopodia and increase in the number of lysosomes and rough endoplasmic reticulum. Many cells showed vacuoles(More)

The effect of Salmonella enterica subspecies enterica serovar Typhimurium, a zoonotic serovar, on mung bean (Phaseolus aureus) cultivar Pant Mung-3 plants was studied. Inoculation of mung bean seeds with Salmonella Typhimurium (7.2 x 10(5) CFU/ml) reduced sprouting rate (P < 0.07). This effect was more pronounced at higher levels of contamination. In the(More)

A total of 44 cases comprising hypertensive (31) and normotensive group (13) were studied. Serum total calcium concentrations remained unaltered in hypertensives. Platelet cytosolic calcium in hypertensive group was significantly higher as compared to the normotensive controls. Platelet cytosolic calcium correlated with systolic and diastolic blood pressure(More)
