Non-heme iron bioavailability of diet consumed by children (ages 5 to 8) in rural area of India was estimated by comparison of algorithms. A cross-sectional observational study was conducted among 232 children and consisted of a 24-hour recall on 2 nonconsecutive days. Four algorithms were chosen to estimate the non-heme iron bioavailability. Daily average(More)
Micronutrient deficiency is an alarming public health problem; it undermines the health, development, and academic potential of millions of children and adolescents globally (FAO, 2002). All around the world about 60–80 per cent of the adolescents have been facing micronutrient deficiency. In India alone more than 50 per cent of adolescent girls and 30 per(More)
During present investigations, renal toxicity of CdSNPs (cadmium sulphide nanoparticles) (ranged 5-9 nm) was estimated in rat employing specific parameters. Treatment on each alternate day for 45 days with CdSNPs (10 mg/kg b.w.) yielded significant increase in Cd-MT (cadmium metallothionein), lipid peroxidation and H2O2 generation in the kidney of rat in(More)
Dimethylnitrosamine (DMN) is a potent hepatotoxic, carcinogenic and mutagenic compound. It induces massive liver cell necrosis and death in experimental animals. Several drugs have been tested in the past for their protective behavior against DMN toxicity. However, it is for the first time that therapeutic intervention of ZnONPs (zinc oxide nanoparticles)(More)
