Department. Food prices have increased sharply since mid-2007 and accelerated alarmingly in early 2008. Rice and wheat prices have spiked at levels not seen in over three decades. This threatens to exacerbate poverty in developing Asia by reducing the real incomes of the already poor, while pushing many others below the poverty line. The report proposes(More)
Concentrations of 5-fluorouracil (FU) were measured in the plasma of patients receiving i.v. infusions of the drug for 5 days as treatment for adenocarcinoma of the gastrointestinal tract. Concentrations of FU varied widely in many patients. Concentration of drug X time of infusion (C X t values) were calculated. Patients showing a partial response or(More)
A Gram-negative, motile, rod-shaped, endospore-forming bacterial strain, designated as NCCP-36T, was isolated from the compost of fruit and vegetable wastes. The strain NCCP-36T grew within a temperature range of 10–45 ○C (optimum 28 ○C) and a pH range of 6.5–8.5 (optimum 7.0), and its cells tolerated <50 mM boron (optimum growth without boron) and 0–5 %(More)
Excretory and secretory products (ESPs) of nematode contain various proteins which are capable of inducing the instigation or depression of the host immune response and are involved in the pathogenesis of the worms. In the present study, Haemonchus contortus excretory and secretory products (HcESPs) were collected from the adult worms. Binding of HcESPs to(More)
Haemonchus contortus is a parasitic gastrointestinal nematode, and its excretory and secretory products (HcESPs) interact extensively with the host cells. In this study, we report the interaction of proteins from HcESPs at different developmental stages to goat peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) in vivo using liquid chromatography-tandem mass(More)
The taxonomic status of a bacterium, strain NCCP-246T, isolated from rhizosphere of Vigna mungo, was determined using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The strain NCCP-246T can grow at 16–37 °C (optimum 32 °C), at pH ranges of 6–8 (optimum growth occurs at pH 7) and in 0–4 % (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analysis based upon on 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison(More)
