BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Studies have shown the bactericidal potential of econazole and clotrimazole against Mycobacterium tuberculosis under in vitro and ex vivo conditions along with their synergism with conventional antituberculosis drugs. These molecules were also found to be effective against different multidrug resistant (MDR) M. tuberculosis isolates(More)
We have investigated the effect of nitrogen laser irradiation (337 nm) on viability of clinical isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Bacteria were exposed to a nitrogen laser (average power 2.0 mW) in vitro at power density of 70 ± 0.7 W/m2 for 0–30 min, and the cell viability was determined by luciferase reporter phage (LRP) assay. Immediately after(More)
Accelerated population ageing experienced in the last few decades is an unprecedented phenomenon. Currently, this is more in the developing countries. Soon three-fourths of the elderly will be in the developing world. From 1990 to 2025, the elderly population in Asia will rise from 50 per cent of the world's elderly to 58 per cent, in Africa and Latin(More)
