Prevalence and Relative Evaluation of Adverse Drug Reactions in Tuberculosis Patients undergoing DOTS in Karad region

Abstract Tuberculosis (TB), a multisystemic disease with myriad presentations and manifestations, is the most common cause of infectious disease–related mortality worldwide. To find out adverse drug reactions induced due to Directly Observed Treatment, Short-course (DOTS), a study was undertaken to assess the prevalence rate and pattern of adverse drug reactions (ADR) in DOTS with focus […]

Study on the Prevalence of Virulent genes in Escherichia coli isolated from Fish using multiplex PCR

Abstract A one shot multiplex Polymerase Chain Reaction PCR was developed for detecting 6 virulent genes of diarrheagenic E.coli from fish and shrimps. In order to differentiate between 5 categories of diarrheagenic E.coli ,I selected the target genes eae for Enteropathogenic E.coli(EPEC), ipaH for Enteroinvasive E.coli (EIEC) ,stx for Enterohaemorragic E.coli (EHEC), aggR for Enteroaggregative […]

Comparative Assessment of Antibacterial Activity of Secondary Metabolites from Three Medicinal Plants: Ocimum sanctum, Azadirachta indica and Mentha arvensis

Abstract Indiscriminate use of antibiotics has ensued into pathogen resistance, therefore, it is essential to discover the natural alternatives to combat the infectious diseases caused by these bacteria, and one scientific approach is to examine the antibacterial activities of the secondary compounds from medicinal plants that are considered to have significant prophylactic properties from centuries. […]

Studies on biochemical components, secondary metabolites and photosynthetic pigments in Mealey bug infected Terminalia arjuna-a primary host plant of Tasar Silkworm Anthereae mylitta drury

Abstract Mealey bug (Maconellicoccus hirsutus) is a serious pest of Terminalia arjuna which is the primary food for Tropical tasar silkworm Anthereae Mylitta Drury. It attacks the leaves of the host plant causing considerable damage which alters the leaf quality. An attempt was made to know the changes in the Biochemical components (Total soluble proteins, […]

Screening of Indica Rice (oryza sativa 1) Genotypes against Low Temperature Stress Using Diversity Analysis

Abstract The nature and the magnitude of genetic divergence were estimated in 52 rice genotypes using Mahalonobis’s D2 – statistics. The genotypes were grouped into 8 clusters showing fair degree of relationship between geographic distribution and genetic divergence. Cluster VIII showed maximum intra cluster divergence while inter cluster divergence was maximum between clusters IV and […]
