The type III secretion system of Pseudomonas aeruginosa transports four known effector proteins: ExoS, ExoT, ExoU and ExoY. However, the prevalence of the type III secretion system genes or the effector-encoding genes in clinical and environmental isolates of P. aeruginosa has not been well studied. Southern hybridization analyses and PCR were performed on(More)
Eosinophils are multifunctional granulocytes that play an imperative role in health and disease. They have also been found to be a crucial component of peri- and intratumoral inflammatory infiltrate. Tumor-associated tissue eosinophilia (TATE) has been observed and described in many tumors, including head and neck neoplasia. The process of eosinophil(More)
INTRODUCTION This study aimed at evaluating and comparing the antibacterial activity of six types of dental luting cements on Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacillus acidophilus using the agar diffusion test (ADT) and the direct-contact test (DCT). The antibacterial activity in ADT was measured based on the diameter of the zone of inhibition formed, whereas(More)
BACKGROUND This study was conducted to assess the early predictability of virological response in chronic hepatitis-C patients (Genotype-3), treated with pegylated interferon alpha-2a and ribavirin with an objective of determining predictive values of Rapid Virological Response (RVR) and Early Virological Response (ETR) on Sustained Virological Response(More)
BACKGROUND Cancer therapy couples with it a plethora of complications of short and long term effects which can be so distressing that patient may tolerate only lower less-effective doses of therapy, may postpone treatments or will discontinue treatment entirely. Fractionated dose of radiotherapy coupled with therapy induce local or systemic infections due(More)
Field experiments were carried out during 1996-97 at Gulawathi, Muthiani and Salarpur Villages, IARI Farm, New Delhi and NCPP Campus, Dadri to evaluate changes in soil characteristics and growth of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), mustard (Brassica juncea L.), lentil (Lence esculenta Moench.), rice (Oryza sativa L.) and maize (Zea mays L.) by varying amounts(More)

As early as the 19th century, inflammation has been perceived to have a link with cancer but this perception has waned through the passing of time. In recent years however a renewed interest on inflammation and cancer connection stemming from different lines of work has been evolved that leads to a generally-accepted paradigm. In the tumor microenvironment,(More)
