Alcohol consumption increases the small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and intestinal permeability of endotoxin. The endotoxin mediated inflammatory signaling plays a major role in alcoholic liver fibrosis. We evaluated the effect of ascorbic acid (AA), silymarin and alcohol abstention on the alcohol induced endotoxemia and NF-κB activation cascade(More)
Alcoholic liver disease is caused mainly by free radicals. Ascorbic acid (AA) and glutathione (GSH) are the major water-soluble antioxidants in the liver. The impact of AA supplementation on GSH, AA and activities of GSH-dependent enzymes in alcoholic guinea pigs was studied and was compared with alcohol abstention. Guinea pigs were administered ethanol at(More)
Both oxidative stress and inflammatory reactions play a major role in alcoholic liver fibrosis. We evaluated the efficacy of ascorbic acid (AA) and silymarin in the regression of alcohol-induced inflammation in hepatocytes of guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus). Animals were administered with ethanol at a daily dose of 4 g/kg body weight (b.wt) for 90 days. On(More)
Indian Sign Language (ISL) is a visual-spatial language which provides linguistic information using hands, arms, facial expressions, and head/body postures. Our proposed work aims at recognizing 3D dynamic signs corresponding to ISL words. With the advent of 3D sensors like Microsoft Kinect Cameras, 3D geometric processing of images has received much(More)
Both oxidative stress and endotoxins mediated immunological reactions play a major role in the progression of alcoholic hepatic fibrosis. Ascorbic acid has been reported to reduce alcohol-induced toxicity and ascorbic acid levels are reduced in alcoholics. Hence, we investigated the hepatoprotective action of ascorbic acid in the reversal of alcohol-induced(More)
Bone marrow derived stem cells (BMSC) have paved way to clinical approaches for its utilization in a variety of diseases due to its ease of isolation combined with its multilineage differentiation capacity. However, the applicability of BMSC is not successful due to the lesser number of nucleated cells obtained from large samples. Hence, culture expansion(More)
Current protocols of islet cell transplantation for the treatment of diabetes mellitus have been hampered by islet availability and allograft rejection. Although bone marrow and subcutaneous adipose tissue stem cells feature their tissue repair efficacy, applicability of stem cells from various sources is being researched to develop a promising therapy for(More)
The applicability of stem cells from the human endometrium and fallopian tube for regeneration is a fascinating area of research because of the role of these cells in dynamic tissue remodelling and their cyclical regenerative property during the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. Nevertheless, studies on the identity of biomarkers of these stem cells are(More)
Scientific explorations on feto-maternal organ stem cells revealed its possible applicability in treatment of various diseases. However, establishment of an ideal placental tissue stem cell source in regenerative application is inconclusive and arduous. Hence, this study aims to resolve this tribulation by comparison of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) from(More)
The therapeutic rationale for tissue repair and regeneration using stem cells is at its infancy and needs advancement in understanding the role of individual component's innate capability. As stem cells of adipose tissue reside in a more heterogeneous population of stromal vascular fractions, cell separation or sorting becomes an eminent step towards(More)
