Sustainability in livestock production system is largely affected by climate change. An imbalance between metabolic heat production inside the animal body and its dissipation to the surroundings results to heat stress (HS) under high air temperature and humid climates. The foremost reaction of animals under thermal weather is increases in respiration rate,(More)
BACKGROUND Aromatase deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the CYP19A1 gene and characterized by lack of conversion of androgens to estrogens. It presents with virilization of pregnant mothers during the antenatal period, and virilization of female fetuses at birth. Affected subjects of either gender later manifest with(More)
The role of iron and aluminium in determining volatile solids reduction and odors from anaerobically digested, dewatered sludge cakes was evaluated from data collected from a variety of wastewater treatment plants. It was found that volatile solids reduction generally increased as the iron content of the sludge increased. It was also observed that odors(More)
Neonatal osteomyelitis of the calvaria is a rare condition. The present case report describes a 4-week-old infant with osteomyelitis of the right parietal and temporal bones caused by Staphylococcus aureus. CT scan revealed a characteristic "moth-eaten" appearance and multiloculated brain abscess with encephalomalacia, which was successfully treated by(More)
Determination of phosphate ions concentration is very important from both, environmental and clinical point of view. In this study, a simple and novel conductometric biosensor for indirect determination of the phosphate ions in aqueous solution has been developed. The developed biosensor is based on the inhibition of immobilized alkaline phosphatase(More)
The disposition of valproic acid was studied following single dose intravenous administration in seven young male volunteers aged 20-35 years and six elderly male in-patients aged 75-87 years. Following administration of 400 mg sodium valproate, blood samples were collected for 48 h and valproic acid concentrations analysed by enzymatic immunoassay. The(More)
Cerebral palsy (CP) continues to be a major problem in India. The present study provides an insight into the various clinical and neuroradiological correlates of CP. The study included 102 children with CP and was subjected to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain. Forty-seven (46%) patients belonged to the 1–3 years age group and 84 (82%) were born(More)
A facile method for the aqueous phase synthesis of cysteine-functionalized silver nanoparticles by potato extract has been reported in the present work. These functionalized nanoparticles were then used for the covalent immobilization of a biomolecule, alkaline phosphatase, on its surface through carbodiimide coupling. Different reaction parameters such as(More)
Systemic infections caused by Clostridium sordellii are rare. They are usually reported in cases of skin and soft tissue infections and sometimes in cases of toxic shock syndrome involving exotoxins. We report here the first case of Clostridium sordellii infection associated with acute constrictive pericarditis and with pyopericardium and tamponade.
