Effects of feeding of powdered dry leaves of A. indica (AI) were investigated on humoral and cell mediated immune responses, in a flock of broilers which had survived an outbreak of infectious bursal disease (IBD). AI (2 g/kg) treatment significantly enhanced the antibody titres against new castle disease virus (NCDV) antigen and also potentiated the(More)
Converging observations from disparate lines of inquiry are beginning to clarify the cause of brain iron dyshomeostasis in sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD), a neurodegenerative condition associated with the conversion of prion protein (PrP(C)), a plasma membrane glycoprotein, from α-helical to a β-sheet rich PrP-scrapie (PrP(Sc)) isoform.(More)
A direct correlation between brain iron and Alzheimer's disease (AD) raises questions regarding the transport of non-transferrin-bound iron (NTBI), a toxic but less researched pool of circulating iron that is likely to increase due to pathological and/or iatrogenic systemic iron overload. Here, we compared the distribution of radiolabeled-NTBI (59Fe-NTBI)(More)
