Water recharge from land surfaces into subsurface media is an essential element in the hydrological cycle. For a small scale Groundwater assessment, experimental approaches are usually followed, however, on a regional scale, this groundwater assessment needs to be made into a comprehensive picture where spatial data of the different contributing factors are treated. Contributing factors are lineaments and drainage frequency density, lithologic character, landuse and landcover.This study is approach to better estimate and provide qualitative assessment of potential of the area influencing the groundwater conditions and it is very good in valley regions and in remaining it is moderate to poor. © 2012 CAFET-INNOVA TECHNICAL SOCIETY.

Antidiabetic effect of plants and their active principles can be assessed in vitro using a variety of biological test systems. They play a major role in evaluation of antidiabetic properties as an initial screening tool prior to in vivo studies. The present review focuses on in vitro assays that are available to study potential antidiabetic activity of plant extracts and their active constituents. It is evident that these plant extract and compounds derived from them are capable of lowering blood glucose level through different mechanism of action. This has attracted a great deal of research interest in exploring natural sources. In vitro assay provides a basic platform for accusing these plant extracts and help us understand various mechanisms that would alleviate hyperglycaemia in diabetes.

Conclusion: Our study revealed that the positive association of sperm dysfunction in RPL cases, hence male may be considered for a routine part of the evaluation along with his partner in the near future in order to achieve desirable outcome.Background: Recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) is one of the most frustrating and difficult areas in reproductive medicine, because the aetiology is often unknown and there are few evidence-based diagnostic and treatment strategies. RPL diagnosis is mainly focused on the female partner. The male factor contributing in evaluation of RPL has been less investigated, it is restricted to karyotype and basic semen analysis, assessment of functionality of sperm is largely ignored.Aim and Objective: To investigate the role of sperm factors in recurrent pregnancy loss through regular semen analysis preceded with sperm function tests.Materials and Methods: We performed a case control study of 95 males whose partner has experienced two or more pregnancy loss as case and 37 volunteers who had fathered child/children without the history of recurrent pregnancy loss as control group. Basic semen analysis and sperm function test (Nuclear chromatin decondensation {NCD}, Hypo osmotic swelling {HOS} and Acrosome intactness test {AIT} was performed. The results were analysed by performing Independent-sample t-test using SPSS (version 14.0).Results: One individual had anatomical abnormality which was confirmed through trans-rectal ultrasound scanning and RPL group showed statistically significant (p<0.05) value for NCD, HOS and AIT and 36.8% of RPL individuals had reduced score for sperm count and motility. Less than 4% normal morphology was recorded in 16.8% individuals of RPL group. © 2014, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research. All rights reserved.

Effect of replacement of wheat flour with a combination of soy protein isolate, oat bran and chickpea flour (SPOBCP) at the levels of 20%, 40% and 60% and addition of combination of additives such as fungal α-amylase, dry gluten powder, sodium stearoyl-2-lactylate, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (CA) on the rheological and nutritional characteristics of bread was studied. Use of SPOBCP decreased farinograph dough stability, increased pasting temperature, decreased cold paste viscosity and overall quality score of bread. Scanning electron microscopy images showed higher degree of disruption of protein matrix in bread dough with 60% SPOBCP than 20% and 40% SPOBCP. Addition of 60% SPOBCP resulted in flat, uneven shaped bread with an overall quality score of 38 when compared with 54, 81 and 91 for breads with 40%, 20% and 0% SPOBCP, respectively. However, use of CA increased the strength of the dough and improved the overall quality of bread with 40% SPOBCP. Nutritional profile of bread with 40% SPOBCP + CA showed higher protein, in vitro protein digestibility, total dietary fibre, resistant starch, β-glucan and lower starch hydrolysis index than control bread. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
