Daily intake of 12 metals (Na, K, Ca, Cu, Zn, Fe, Mn, Mg, Pb, Cd, Co and Ni) by Mumbai adult population were assessed by analysing duplicate diet samples. These metals were determined by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry (AAS) and stripping voltammetric techniques. A total of 250 diet samples containing 170 vegetarian diet and 80 non-vegetarian diet(More)

AIM To fill the above-mentioned void, we planned this study to determine the prevalence and degree of antibacterial resistance in GABHS isolates. SETTINGS AND DESIGN Children with acute pharyngo-tonsillitis who had not received(More)
A direct mass spectrometric method for 15-hydroxy metabolites of arachidonic acid and of eicosapentaenoic acid is described. 15-Hydroxyeicosanoids have the capacity to inhibit the formation of leukotrienes, potent mediators of inflammation formed by the 5-lipoxygenase pathway of arachidonic acid metabolism and may therefore have anti-inflammatory(More)
Hydrogels represent a class of high water content polymers with physical or chemical crosslinks. Their physical properties are similar to soft tissues. Cross linking is a stabilization process in polymer chemistry which leads to multidimensional extension of polymeric chain resulting in network structure. Cross-link is a bond which links one polymer chain(More)
The emerging interest in essential polyunsaturated fatty acids has resulted in a number of products available in the Danish market. These products contain essential fatty acid oils rich in n-6 and n-3 fatty acids. The quality of these products plays a major role in planning prophylactic and clinical studies. This investigation therefore illustrates the(More)
