In vitro bio efficacy of microbial antagonists against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum
Sanjay Gandhi, S. and Usha rani, S.

The bio efficacy of T. viride and P. fluorescens isolates were tested in in vitro against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum causing wilt of cotton. Among the T. viride isolates, Tv7 and P.fluorescens isolates, Pf5 significantly inhibited the growth of F. oxysporum f.sp. vasinfectum tested by the dual culture technique than the control. Similarly, the culture filtrate of Tv7 and Pf5 isolates were significantly inhibits the growth of F. oxysporum f.sp. vasinfectum. The reduction of...

Spontaneous chronic subdural hematoma in childhood or adolescence is very unusual. Most of the subdural hematomas are due to head injury. Here we are presenting a case of a 12 year old boy whose computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging depicted a chronic subdural hematoma in the left frontotemporoparietal region with mass effect.

Tunable bandgap energy and optical constants of nano crystalline FE2MN2NI0.5ZN1.5O9
Anitha S. Nair and Jayakumari Isac

A characteristic feature of all solid-state reactions is that they involve the formation of product phase(s) at the interfaces of the reactants. Nano Crystalline Ceramic Ferromanganese nickel zinc oxide (Fe2Mn2Ni0.5Zn1.5O9) was prepared by the solid state reaction method via a high-energy ball milling process through mechanically assisted synthesis and calcined in a specially designed high temperature furnace at different treating temperatures. UV-VIS analysis of the sample was carried out....

Method: Two small surveys conducted deploying two separate questionnaires based on descriptive research to encompass and contrast conspectus of 200 individuals against expert opinion of 20 ophthalmologists highlighting major factors leading to escalated trends in prevalence of eye disorder. Data was collected employing random sampling in one and half month from...

Fallacy of using odds ratio as a measure of association in prospective studies
Rajneesh K Joshi, Monil, Anurag Khera and Sheela V. Godbole

Many prospective studies report Odds Ratio as measure of association between exposure and outcome, even though Risk Ratio / Rate Ratio can be directly measured in these studies. We reviewed the relationship between Odds Ratio and Risk Ratio in prospective studies and problems associated with the use of Odds Ratio as measure of association in them. Odds approximates probability and Odds Ratio approximates Risk Ratio only when probability of outcome is small (<10%). If association between...

Dr. Indira Surya Kumari, K. and Sindhuja, D.

AIM: Objective of the study is to evaluate the outcome of labor of premature rupture of membranes in mature vertex pregnancy regarding mode of delivery, latent period following PROM, maternal morbidity, infant morbidity and mortality, and influence of latent period on maternal morbidity, infant morbidity and mortality and to compare the outcome of primigravida with multigravida. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was conducted in the department of obstetrics and gynecology, in labour room of...

Bioassay fractionation based antifungal assay of stems of Cissus quadrangularis (Linn.)
Vishnuthari, N. and Dr. Shubashini K. Sripathi

Cissus quadrangularis is a herb claimed to be used for the treatment of various diseases by common man. This plant possesses immense medicinal potential and since there are not many scientific studies carried out on the stem parts of this plan, the biological evaluation of the stems was taken up. The ethanol extract of stems of cissus quadrangularis was analyzed for its antifungal activity by disc diffusion method. The ethanol extract showed antifungal activity against Monoscus ruber...

Isamu Nakano, Hironori Juichi, Takeshi Hamaguchi, Shelake Rahul Mahadev, Masahiro Miyashita, Hisashi Miyagawa, Eugene Hayato Morita

In the fruit of Japanese apricot (Prunusmume), many useful medicinal compounds are contained. To gain these useful medicinal components efficiently, many manufacturing technologies were developed. One of these is the heat concentration of mume fruit juice. Heat concentration process concentrated the useful components effectively, and can be applied as the raw material preparation technique for the processed goods. In Ehime prefecture, for example, Izumirengekai manufactured the heat...

Validated UV spectrophotometric method for quantitative analysis of dapoxetine in pharmaceutical dosage form
Panchumarthy Ravisankar, Niharika, A., Pavan, G., Madhavi, V. and Shiny Susan, T.

A simple, precise, accurate, economical and reliable UV spectrophotometric method has been developed for the estimation of Dapoxetine in tablet dosage form. The Dapoxetine shows maximum absorbance at 211 nm in water and obeys Beer’s law in the concentration range of 2-10 μg /mL with good correlation coefficient (r2 = 0.9996). The results of analysis were validated by recovery studies. The percentage recovery method was found to be 99.53-100.41%. The relative standard deviation was found to...
