Present study was aimed to study clinical presentations, metabolic profile, growth profile, type and prevalence of complications among the diabetic children. This Cross-sectional study was conducted among the 34 patients attending and admitted in our Hospital and District Hospital, Belgaum during the period of April - 04 to March -05. Patients with age less than 18 years and fasting blood sugar more than 126 mg/dl or random blood sugar more 200 mg/dl were included in the study. Patients with...
Today in the western world one of the leading causes of death is cancer(WHO Media centre, 2010). To start off with I will quote some facts. One in every three people worldwide will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime and in the UK one in every four people die due to cancer. In the year 2007 there were just under 300,000 new cases of cancer diagnosed in the UK aloneAs health care professionals we would be very interested in finding ways to treat and prevent cancer, as this would...
Microsatellites are commonly used molecular markers in phylogeography, and many view them as superior to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) gene trees. Being based on frequencies of alleles, and not gene trees, microsatellites exhibit the same analytical drawbacks that resulted in the abandonment of allozymes in genetic studies of population history. I illustrate some these familiar drawbacks by reanalyzing microsatellite data on the song sparrow. Subspecies were previously evaluated with...
Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis is a rare, unusual and destructive form of chronic cholecystitis. It is clinically indistinguishable from other forms of cholecystitis and hence difficult to diagnose. Due to its propensity to form dense adhesions with stuctures surrounding the gall bladder and mimic malignancy of gall bladder intra-operatively, it's difficult to manage. This retrospective study was conducted with the aim to review the clinico-pathologic presentation of XGC and the possibility...
Photosynthesis is the process by which a plant cell converts carbon dioxide (CO2) to food sugars via light energy. The aim of the experiment was to determine whether different light intensities have different effects on the rate of photosynthesis of two plants, one grown in normal light conditions and one grown in shade conditions. Each plant was placed in a sealed plastic box and was allowed to acclimatise. A Vernier CO2 electrode was used to measure the concentration of CO2 at one minute...
The purpose of this project is to determine the surface` area of oddly shaped objects like hands and leaves. To do this, I tried to cut different sizes of squares (like 3cm, 4cm, etc) and find each of its mass in grams using an electronic scale. Using my collected data, I will make a scatter plot with the area in cm2 on the y-axis and the mass in grams on the x-axis manually and electronically using Graph 4.3. To find the line of best fit, of both scatter plots, I will find and compare the...
The main purpose of the present work was to develop matrix tablets of Glimepiride with Hibiscus rosa-sinensis leaves mucilage and Povidone and to study its functionality as a matrix forming agent for sustained release tablet formulations. Mucilage from Hibiscus rosa-sinensis leaves was isolated, purified and characterized. Physicochemical properties of dried powdered mucilage of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis leaves mucilage were studied. Various formulations of Glimepiride Hibiscus rosa-sinensis...
Most commonly used herbicide in the world is atrazine, which has been used for over 40 years in more than 80 countries. It can be transported to more than 1,000 km from the area of rainfall to remote areas where it is not used (Hayes et al. March 2010). Atrazine's causes inhibition of photosynthesis in plants by disturbance of the Photosystem II pathway. It is likely to persist in water as it is resistant to degradation of abiotic routes and moderately resistant to biotic degradation. So,...
Nanorobotics sometimes called as Molecular Robotics is the science and technology of designing and manufacturing of nanoscale machines or robots capable of controlling and manipulation of objects that have dimensions in the range of nanoscale. Nanotechnology is the study of control of matter within the dimensional range approximately between 1 and 100 nanometres on an atomic or molecular scale, which is much smaller than anything imaginable. This article mainly deals with the facts about...
Vaccination is the most co-effective way of reducing animal suffering and economic losses due to infectious diseases in animals. Subunit vaccines are defined as vaccines which containing one or more pure or semi-pure antigens. Recombinant subunit vaccines identify and isolate a specific gene from virulent bacteria or virus gene that codes immuno protective protein. Recombinant subunit vaccines are produced by inserting a gene into plasmid DNA and ligated with ligase. New plasmid inserted into...
