Knowledge of the immune response to rotavirus is crucial for vaccine development. We compared an epitope-blocking assay (EBA) that uses VP7-specific monoclonal antibodies with neutralization assays (NAs) with polyclonal antisera for detecting serum antibody responses after natural rotavirus infection in children. Twenty-six serum pairs from children living(More)
An adaptation of the conventional procedure for fixation of brain impressions prior to rabies testing was developed using a microwave oven to fix slides in less than 1 min. A total of 2394 routine specimens were examined to evaluate the efficacy of microwave fixation of brain impressions as an aid to shortening the turnaround time for reporting. Slides were(More)
The aim of this study was to find out the efficient extraction of pharmacologically important analogue capsaicinoids in different organic solvents of Capsicum chinense Bhut Jolokia fruits. Non polar solvents (Hexane, Benzene, Chloroform and Diethyl ether), Polar Aprotic solvents (Ethyl acetate, Acetone, Acetonitrile and Dimethyl sulfoxide -DMSO) and Polar(More)
