Kombucha is a homemade fermented tea that has been traditionally consumed in China for over 2200 years, and is now being used in many other countries. The biochemical basis of the health benefits of kombucha remains largely unknown. The present study was focused on changes in the total antioxidant activity, total phenolic assay and titratable acid content of the kombucha. In addition, the important organic acids and water-soluble vitamins present in kombucha were estimated by using RP-HPLC. Kombucha exhibits good antioxidant and free radical scavenging activity, besides the presence of phenolic compounds, malic acid, tartaric acid, acetic acid, B-complex vitamins and found increased concentration with increased fermentation time. It is concluded that the desired quality or composition of kombucha can be obtained through the proper control of fermentation time.

Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage produced by fermenting sugared black tea with kombucha mat (consists of bacteria and yeast strains). Diabetes mellitus is group of metabolic disorders characterized by hyperglycaemia resulting from defects in insulin secretion, action or both. The present study was aimed to delineate the antihyperglycaemic effect of lyophilized extract of kombucha in streptozotocin-induced experimental rats. After the experimental period of 45days we observed that kombucha supplementation with 6mg/kg bw significantly decreased glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) and increased the levels of plasma insulin, haemoglobin and tissue glycogen which was decreased up on streptozotocin (STZ) treatment and also significantly reversed the altered activities of gluconeogenic enzymes such as glucose-6-phosphatase, fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase and glycolytic enzymes such as hexokinase in the tissues of experimental rats. Thus, our results substantiate that kombucha found to exert hypoglycaemic effect in STZ-induced diabetic rats. These findings suggest that kombucha may be considered as a potential functional food candidate for future applications as functional food supplement for the treatment and prevention of diabetes. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Modern manufacturing requires high quality tooling for most subtractive processes. The prevalent use of pocketed cutting tools in manufacturing is to purchase, use and dispose the tool body either at end of life. Tooling Reclamation has been proven to be an effective way of retaining value through reuse of materials and resources, saving up to 75% of cost of new. However, there exist commercial, technical and educational barriers to universal uptake of such a service. It is estimated that of the £8M tooling market, only 30% is reintroduced after end-of-life, of which less than 10% are given a third or fourth life. This feasibility study will establish the main requirements and barriers from a broad sample of our existing and potential customer base, and how these may be overcome by including enabling technologies, infrastructure and business model in the circular renewal process. It will also investigate the requirements to support scaling-up of renewal capacity for economic tool renewal.

The frequency of invasive, opportunistic mycoses has increased significantly over the past 2 decades. In the immune-compromised host, many fungi, including species of fungi typically considered non-pathogenic, have the potential to cause serious morbidity and mortality. Here we report a rare case of mixed fungal infection of the lung with Candida albicans and Aspergillus fumigatus in a patient on prolonged steroid therapy.

The study was to compare the pulmonary functions in healthy ,nonsmoking women who used either biomass or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as cooking fuel. The effects of biomass fuel, type of ventilation, economic status and cooking index were also taken. The study of the effect of pulmonary function was investigated during the period of Jan 2007. Sixty healthy, non-smoking women were included 30 cooked solely with biomass and 30 cooked with LPG. A standardized respiratory symptoms questionnaire was administered to all the subjects and spirometry was carried out. Passive smoking showed significant difference between the two groups. Statistically significant differences were found in lung functions between two groups FVC, FEV1, FEV1% pred which was significantly lower (P < 0.05) in study group, but FEV1%, FEF25-75% & FEF25-75% % pred no significantly difference but the value is less in women using biomass. The step-wise student't' test analysis showed no correlation between cooking fuel and the pulmonary functions. The absence of the expected adverse effects of biomass on pulmonary functions was possibly due to better ventilation in the kitchens of subjects in the biomass group compared to previous studies.
