The epidemiology of canine parvovirus (CPV) infections in dogs in India was examined using 27 isolates collected during a two-year period. The VP2 genes of 22 isolates were sequenced, and the deduced amino acid sequences were compared. The results indicated that the isolates belonged to CPV type 2a except four, which belonged to CPV type 2b. Comparison of(More)
Coccidiosis is a disease caused by intracellular parasites belonging to the genus Eimeria. In the present study, we transiently expressed two coccidial antigens EtMIC1 and EtMIC2 as poly histidine-tagged fusion proteins in tobacco. We have evaluated the protective efficacy of plant expressed EtMIC1 as monovalent and as well as bi-valent formulation where(More)
Bucket-handle tear is a displaced vertical longitudinal tear of the meniscus. Several signs of the tear have been described on MRI but none in the axial plane. We propose to describe such a sign named the V-sign that is seen at the junction of the displaced fragment and the meniscus, which is in place. MRI imaging of 25 surgically proven bucket-handle tears(More)
Eimeria infection in poultry is of significant economic interest worldwide. Development of a cost-effective sub-unit vaccine that provides cross-protection may help reduce loss in poultry industry. One approach explored by many investigators is to block the parasite invasion into gut epithelium. Use of microneme proteins to prevent parasite invasion is one(More)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the causative agent of tuberculosis disease, which has developed a myriad of exceptional features contributing to its survival within the hostile environment of host cell. Unique cell wall structure with high lipid content plays an imperative role in the pathogenicity of mycobacteria. Cell wall components of MTB such as(More)
Coccidiosis is an economically important disease affecting poultry industry and remains one of the major problems globally. Developing a cost effective sub-unit vaccine may help mitigate loss in the industry. Here, we report expressing one of the microneme proteins, EtMIC2 from Eimeria tenella in tobacco using Agrobacterium-mediated transient expression.(More)
Oryza2000 is an eco-physiological crop model to simulate growth and development of rice in situations of potential production, water limitations, and nitrogen limitations. In the present investigation, unlike independent situation, the applicability under conditions of both water and N limitations has been investigated using data generated from field(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the epidemiology of dietary supplement exposures in the USA. A retrospective analysis was conducted of out-of-hospital dietary supplement exposures reported to the National Poison Data System from 2000 through 2012. There were 274,998 dietary supplement exposures from 2000 through 2012. The annual rate of(More)
The Academy of Ayurveda, reports a spot test calls ‘NAMBURI PHASED SPOT TEST’, the utility of which has been fully explored as a general one, to identify Ayurvedic and Siddha Bhasmas and Sinduras. In this method, a drop of the solution of the Bhasma Sindura under examination is placed on whatman paper No.1 (impregnated with a suitable reagent and dried). As(More)
