A reconstituted collagen membrane from human amnion has been investigated as a source of collagen matrix, which could be used as a substratum for culturing human fibroblasts. The suitability of pepsin-solubilized reconstituted human amniotic membrane, before and after cross-linking with chitosan, as a dermal matrix for culturing fibroblast was assessed by(More)
In this study, dsRNA specific to VP28 gene of white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) of shrimp was synthesized in Escherichia coli in large scale and studied the immune response of shrimp to dsRNA-VP28. The haematological parameters such as clotting time and total haemocytes counts, and immunological parameters such as prophenoloxidase (proPO), superoxide(More)
OBJECTIVES Isoniazid (INH) resistance is a major contributor to the emergence of multidrug resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), hampering the success of tuberculosis treatment. This study aimed to identify good leads based on INH derivatives against INH-resistant MTB strains. Mutations at codon 315 in the katG gene encoding catalase-peroxidase(More)

It is also frequently seen in developed countries among chronic alcoholics or, occasionally, those suffering from anorexia nervosa. The usual manifestations are(More)
The aim of present study was to evaluate antidiabetic activity of methanolic extract of Hibiscus cannabinus; family Malvaceae leaves in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats. The alcoholic extract of Hibiscus cannabinus was studied for antidiabetic activity in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats by oral administration of extract 400mg/kg body weight for 15(More)
