In this study, we have established an oral phage cocktail therapy in adult mice model and also performed a comparative analysis between phage cocktail, antibiotic and oral rehydration treatment for orally developed Vibrio cholerae infection. Four groups of mice were orally infected with Vibrio cholerae MAK 757 strain. Phage cocktail and antibiotic treated(More)
Recently, we have demonstrated, immunization of adult female mice with outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) of Shigella boydii type 4 protected their offspring passively from shigellosis. In our present study, we have advanced our research by formulating multi-serotype outer membrane vesicles (MOMVs), mixing the OMVs of Shigella dysenteriae 1 Δstx, Shigella(More)
Like most other Gram-negative bacteria, Shigella releases outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) into the surrounding environment during growth. In this study, we have exploited OMVs of Shigella as a protective immunogen in a mice model against Shigellosis. Distinctive vesicle secretion was noticed from different Shigella strains. Among them, Shigella boydii type 4(More)
This paper shows how the most important features can be selected from the face so that the performance of any face recognition engine can be improved by matching only the maximally distinguishable features. Creating an automated face recognition system that can duplicate human performance in recognizing a face is one of the key goal of computer vision(More)
The present work proposes a unified model to explain two previously reported properties of the Mach band illusion. The first is the frequently referenced fact that Mach bands are prominently visible at ramps, but practically vanish at intensity steps. The second property, less studied, on the other hand may also be related to the first. It concerns the fact(More)
Modern safety-critical systems (e.g., combined pacemaker/deliberator devices, distributed patient therapy delivery systems) incorporate more functionality than similar devices of the past. The development of these complex systems challenges existing quality assurance techniques; results in significantly longer development times; and demands greater staffing(More)
The aim of the present study was to explore a new approach based on the hemagglutination (HA) assay to understand the colonization ability of Shigella spp. To study colonization ability, an animal model of 4-day-old suckling mouse, was exploited. We characterized the HA activity of 48 Shigella strains, with erythrocytes collected from rabbit, guinea pig,(More)
