BACKGROUND In rural India, most births take place in the home, where high-risk care practices are common. We developed an intervention of behaviour change management, with a focus on prevention of hypothermia, aimed at modifying practices and reducing neonatal mortality. METHODS We did a cluster-randomised controlled efficacy trial in Shivgarh, a rural(More)
Interest in the area of Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is growing since last few years because of its practical applications and requirement of communication in mobile devices. However, in comparison to wired network or infrastructure-based wireless network, MANET is particularly vulnerable to security attacks due to its fundamental characteristics, e.g.,(More)
Although gender-based health disparities are prevalent in India, very little data are available on care-seeking patterns for newborns. In total, 255 mothers were prospectively interviewed about their perceptions and action surrounding the health of their newborns in rural Uttar Pradesh, India. Perception of illness was significantly lower in incidence(More)
The proline-glutamic acid (PE) and proline-proline-glutamic acid (PPE) multi-gene families code for approximately 10 % of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) genome. These proteins are thought to be virulence factors that participate in impounding the host immune responses. While some members have been studied, the functions of most PE/PPE proteins are yet(More)
We report a new biopolymer electrolyte for dye sensitized solar cell application. To develop polymer electrolyte, potassium iodide have been added in agarose biopolymer matrix and characterized using various techniques like complex impedance spectroscopy, Infrared spectroscopy (IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Complex(More)
Serine/threonine protein kinases (STPKs) are predominantly involved in growth, development, division, differentiation, and in regulating immune responses in mycobacteria. A wide variety of functions of mycobacterial STPKs persuade mycobacterial growth and further its survival in the hosts. The polymorphic studies have shown that a full length gene of(More)
Copper(II) complexes of reduced glutathione (GSH) of general composition Na[Cu(L)(X)]*nH2O (where LH2=GSH; X=Cl-, NO3-, NCS-, CH3CO2-, HCO2-, ClO4- and n=0-4) have been prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility measurements, IR spectroscopy, EPR spectroscopy and ligand-field spectroscopy. The EPR and ligand field spectra in(More)
Salinity stress is one of the major abiotic stresses affecting plant growth and productivity globally. In order to improve the yields of plants growing under salt stress bear remarkable importance to supply sustainable agriculture. Acclimation of plants to salinized condition depends upon activation of cascade of molecular network involved in stress(More)
The 0-1 knapsack problem is a well-studied combinatorial optimization problem and much research has been performed on many variants of the problem [1,28]. There are single and multiobjective versions of the problem involving one and m-dimensional knapsacks [9,15]. Even the single objective case has been proven to be NP-hard. Much research for the single(More)
