The present study investigated whether people working closely with animals were at higher risk of getting infected with Blastocystis hominis. The prevalence of the parasite was determined in two population groups, i.e., animal handlers and normal healthy individuals who did not work with animals. In all, 105 stool samples were collected from animal handlers(More)
The shedding pattern of the protozoan parasite, Blastocystis hominis, is investigated in man and in experimental animal infections. The shedding pattern of the vacuolar and cystic forms of Blastocystis hominis in infected individuals have been shown in the present study to be irregular. The study shows that there is marked fluctuation in the shedding of the(More)
BACKGROUND Recognizing specific protein changes in response to drug administration in humans has the potential for the development of personalized medicine. Such changes can be identified by pharmacoproteomics approach based on proteomic technologies. It can also be helpful in matching a particular target-based therapy to a particular marker in a subgroup(More)
GeneChip® microarray is a cutting-edge technology being used to study the expression patterns of genes with in a particular cell type. In this study, the Affymetrix® RAE230A platform was used to profile stably expressed mRNA transcripts from PC12 cells at passage 5 and 15. The whole-cell PC12 transcriptome revealed that a total of 7,531 stable transcripts(More)
The venom of the marine snail, Conus loroisii, was studied to assess its risk and lethal factors in regard of human welfare. The lethality of the crude venom (LD50-5.0 mg/kg via i.p.) in mice was associated with reduced motor activity, asphyxiation, followed by respiratory failure. The effects on vital tissues revealed vascular congestion and inflammatory(More)
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have exacerbated global warming, and consequently are the focus of worldwide reduction efforts. Reducing emissions involves accurately estimating GHG emissions and the uncertainty associated with such estimates. The uncertainty of GHG emission estimates is often assessed using the 95% confidence interval. Given a small sample(More)
Intrusion Detection in MANET is one of the major concern in peer-to-peer networking scenario where mobile / wireless nodes communicate with each other without any pre-defined infrastructural setup. This paper presents an overview of various intrusion detection models, identifying its issues, discusses on design and proposes an intrusion detection system(More)
Recruiting employees is an important task for management team in all sectors. The expected time needs to be predicted to make decisions on recruitment. In this paper, statistical model developed to obtain the expected time using three parameters generalized exponential models for reaching threshold level. In the time of recruitment, the assumptions were(More)
Haemoglobinopathies are among the most common inherited monogenic disorders worldwide. Thalassaemia screening for carrier status is recommended for adults of reproductive age if suspected of being at risk. Conventional laboratory methods for screening include the assessment of haematological indices, and high-performance liquid chromatography, capillary(More)
