    Lastly, the RDT is not specifically designed for cattle, thus has the potential to detect T. congolense or T. vivax infection in any susceptible species. Therefore, if the RDT shows satisfactory accuracy in field tests, this versatility implies that the test could also be used as an epidemiological tool.Funding statement and conflict of…[Read more]

  • These results show the importance of participating in a multidisciplinary intervention for obese adolescents, reinforcing that these adolescents can achieve positive results for their health irrespective of their success in short-term weight loss. Freedhoff and Sharma developed a practical guide to obesity management, which discusses the…[Read more]

    There are several studies focusing on detection and genetic characterization of T. gondii isolated from different tissues of wild animals in Europe. In case of small mammals, T. gondii was detected by PCR in 10 out of 250 rodents trapped on pig farms in Netherlands (Kijlstra et al., 2008). T. gondii was detected in tissues of A. sylvaticus (1/7)…[Read more]

    In vitro formed shoots from all the explants of C. elephantidens after 4weeks were transferred to a fresh MS basal medium for rooting. Within 10days, all cultured shoots showed the melanotropin of roots (Fig. 2.6). The percentage of rooting on MS basal medium was 100%. Roots were thick and robust, and plantlets were removed after 5weeks of their…[Read more]

  • Afghan conflict has typically seen the movement of migrants to neighbouring Iran and Pakistan. And, those who have resources and education seek refuge in Western countries. A fraternity also brings in many Afghans to India. But, Central Asia is also appearing as an important destination for many Afghans. They are comfortable there because of less…[Read more]

  • Materials and methodsResultsDiscussionOne of the disadvantages of live vaccines is that they spread easily in the field (Meulemans et al., 2001; Hodgson et al., 2004). While spreading, most RNA viruses, such as IBV, may undergo a high rate of genetic change that contributes to diverse subpopulations of the virus that continually emerge to form new…[Read more]

  • 1. IntroductionLiquid phase processing, or melt-cast, is an economical method to produce intricate shapes at the industrial scale. For metal matrix–carbon nanotube (MM–CNTs) nanocomposite fabrication, there are two major limitations: high melting temperature of matrix metal which may damage CNTs, and purchase propyl of CNTs due to the surface ten…[Read more]

  • Multiple linear regression analysis using all variables as factors (Model 1) demonstrated that weight, BMI, and tidal volume were independently associated with the bilateral excursion of the diaphragms (all P < 0.05) after adjusting for other clinical variables, including age, gender, smoking history, height, VC, %VC, FEV1, FEV1%, and %FEV1. There…[Read more]

  •  A representative video of sequential chest radiographs obtained by chest dynamic radiography for the motion of the diaphragms (“dynamic X-ray phrenicography”). A board-certified radiologist placed a point of interest (red point) on the highest point of each 5 ala on the radiograph at the resting end-expiratory position. These points were…[Read more]
