This research is reports the fungicidal properties of nano-size silver/chitosan nanoformulations (NFs) used as an agent for antifungal treatment of various seed borne plant pathogens. Fungal phytopathogens, especially seed borne disease causing species, Rhizoctonia solani, Aspergillus flavus, Alternaria alterneta were isolated form chickpea seeds.(More)
Nanoformulation consisting of Streptomycin loaded chitosan-alginate nanoparticles were prepared using ionotropic-pregelation method and optimization was done in terms of polymer concentration, crosslinker concentration and stirring time. The optimal parameters were found to be Chitosan 0.75mg/ml, calcium chloride 1% (w/v) and stirring time 90 min. Polymer(More)
Stream programming based on the synchronous data flow (SDF) model naturally exposes data, task and pipeline parallelism. Statically scheduling stream programs for homogeneous architectures has been an area of extensive research. With graphic processing units (GPUs) now emerging as general purpose co-processors, scheduling and distribution of these stream(More)
Arsenic is present in water, soil, and air in organic as well as in inorganic forms. However, inorganic arsenic is more toxic than organic and can cause many diseases including cancers in humans. Its genotoxic effect is considered as one of its carcinogenic actions. Arsenic can cause DNA strand breaks, deletion mutations, micronuclei formation, DNA-protein(More)
A rare presentation of an angiofibroma in the oral cavity is reported, which was treated with a diode laser. The benefits of laser treatment include bloodless procedure with instant precise coagulation of vessels. Although rare and unusual, it is suggested that angiofibroma should be included as one of the differential diagnoses of soft tissue swellings in(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Hydroxyapatite (HA) and β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) grafts have shown to be effective in promoting the clinical signs of periodontal regeneration in intrabony defects. The aim of our study was to clinically and radiographically evaluate the efficacy of HA and β-TCP composite bone graft material in the treatment of intrabony(More)
BACKGROUND Periodontal dressings have been used for several years as a protection over injured tissue to shield the area from further insult. Several dressings are commercially available. A recently introduced light-cured resin, claimed to be more biocompatible and esthetic, needs critical evaluation. AIM To compare this dressing with most widely used(More)
An aberrant frenum is postulated to create functional and aesthetic problems. Archer's 'classical frenectomy' is an extensive procedure including the excision of fibers, interdental papilla, and exposure of alveolar bone up to the palatine papilla. The resultant delayed healing, loss of interdental papilla, and abnormal scar led towards the conservative(More)
