BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Prevalence of metabolic syndrome is high among Asians including Indians. Scarce information is available about the magnitude of metabolic syndrome in rural areas and hence present study in rural area of Wardha district, central India. METHODS In 300 randomly selected subjects, blood pressure and anthropometric measurements such(More)
The present study describes the one-step purification and characterization of an extracellular cellulase-free xylanase from a newly isolated alkalophilic and moderately thermophilic strain of Bacillus subtilis ASH. Xylanase was purified to homogeneity by 10.5-fold with ~43% recovery using ion-exchange chromatography through CM-Sephadex C-50. The purified(More)
This study was aimed at enhancing the production of xylanase from an alkaliphilic Bacillus pumilus VLK-1 in submerged fermentation using wheat bran, a cheap and abundantly available agro-residue, through process optimization and to monitor the effect of temperature shift operation on it. The potential of xylanase in saccharification of wheat straw was also(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Metabolic syndrome is a major concern as a precursor of cardiometabolic diseases. The present study was designed to study the magnitude and correlates of metabolic syndrome among the adolescents of rural Wardha. MATERIALS AND METHODS A cross-sectional study was carried out among the adolescents (10-19 years) of Anji PHC. A sample(More)

Wardha, Maharashtra, INDIA Methods: A cross sectional study was carried out among the adolescents (10-19 years) of Anji P.H.C. Sample size(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Metabolic syndrome - a plausible precondition for type II diabetes and cardiovascular diseases is also on rise. To understand the mechanistic complexity of metabolic syndrome it is imperative to study the specific contribution of the determinants of metabolic syndrome. Such study can help to identify the most significant factor(More)
