  The work presented here analyzed water samples from three sewage treatment plants which regularly discharge into the River Ganga. Biological oxygen demand and dissolved oxygen values were well above the permissible limit at all sites, and were recorded as being at maximum at Dinapur sewage treatment plant. Heavy metals (Zn, Cu, Cd, Pb, Cr) in disposed effluents were above permissible limits at all three sites. Likewise, the most probable number index of E. coli in water samples and coliform counts were recorded as being higher in irrigated water samples and vegetables, indicating a serious health hazard posed by intense microbial and faecal pollution. It was recommended that an integrated approach of phytoremediation with aquatic macrophytes and ozonization of wastewater be adopted to curb the heavy metals and microbial pollution based on these recent research investigations.

  Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is an innovative and one of the significantly achieved developments in the cloud computing environment. Providing security to the cloud virtual machines and users’ data are the greatest challenge of information system. So, understanding the risks of the security and privacy in the cloud and developing efficient and effective solutions for it is really a difficult task. This manuscript describes about the mathematical ontology and a new model based on the Lakota-Volterra equation known as Predator-Prey Model which predicts the trustworthiness of the IaaS virtual platform. The proposed research would minimize the threats to the virtual machines in the cloud environment irrespective of the user’s applications and security policy. It will basically ensure the degree of the security of virtual machines in a cloud environment which helps the cloud service providers to take the quick decisions and about the up gradation of the counter attack measurements.

  The present study was conducted on six crossbred chicken populations of White Leghorn to estimate variability of microsatellites and their association with egg production traits. Five microsatellite markers located on chromosome 1, 2, 5 and 30 were explored and the association study was performed employing least square-maximum likelihood method. All the microsatellites were found to be polymorphic showing three to six alleles in the population. Genotype and allelic frequency was estimated showing a large variability in different microsatellites. The association study of microsatellite variability with egg production traits showed that only ADL023 microsatellite was significantly associated with egg production upto 64 and 72 weeks and egg weight at 28 weeks of age. Genotype 11, 12, 13 and 23 produced more number of eggs at 64 and 72 weeks of age than the genotype 22. Egg weight was higher in genotype 12, 13 and 23 and lower with genotype 11 and 22.

  A field experiment was conducted during two consecutive Rabi seasons of 2007 and 2008 to study the effect of bio-fertilizers in conjunction with inorganic fertilizers on growth and yield of dwarf field pea (cv. Jai) at Oil Seed Research Farm, Kalyanpur in C.S.A. University of Agriculture and Technology, Kanpur. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with three replications in sandy loam soil. The experiment comprised 32 treatment combinations of four levels of fertility (Control, 50, 75 and 100% RDF) and eight bio-fertilizer treatments (Control, Rhizobium, PSB, PGPR, Rhizobium+PSB, Rhizobium+PGPR, PSB+PGPR and Rhizobium +PSB+PGPR). Results indicated that the combined application of 100% RDF and seed inoculation with Rhizobium+PSB+PGPR improved all the growth; yield attributes and yields of field pea. Fresh and dry weight plant-1, nodules number and dry weight plant-1 were found significantly maximum. Number of grains pod-1, number and weight of pods plant-1 at maturity attributed significantly in increasing the grain yield of field pea up to 31.00 q ha-1 and net return up to Rs.26187 ha-1 with the application of 100% DRF and seed inoculation of Rhizobium + PSB + PGPR, yield was 10.96 and 11.93% higher over co-inoculation of Rhizobium + PSB + PGPR (27.60 q ha-1) and 100% RDF (27.30 q ha-1) application. Thus, it can be recommended that to obtain the maximum grain yield and net profit from dwarf field pea, seed should be inoculated with Rhizobium + PSB + PGPR and crop should be fertilized with 100% recommended dose of fertilizer.

  Copper and cobalt complexes derived from 3-(N-phenyl)-thiourea-pentanone-2 were characterized by elemental, XRD, FTIR, UV-Vis, SEM and 1H NMR spectroanalytical studies. The X-ray diffraction studies indicate that 3-(N-phenyl)-thiourea-pentanone-2 and complexes with copper and cobalt are crystalline in nature with simple cubic lattice structure. IR spectroscopic data were used to assign characteristic vibrational frequencies of groups present in these compounds. Scanning electron micrograms were used to assign morphology and particle size.

  The Bhilai Steel Plant is an integrated steel plant situated 30 kilometers (west) of Raipur, the capital of the state of Chhattisgarh (India). The waste generated in the coke ovens has a strong phenolic odour and contains a high amount of phenol, besides the presence of other toxic substances. A preliminary survey was conducted in five localities of the coke oven effluent channel, also known as Purena nala and gross effluent characteristics observed along with associated aquatic animals and plants growing in the embankment of the channel. Besides this, the LC50 of the waste water was also observed on the fresh water fish, Channa punctatus Bloch, for 24 to 96 h (short term exposure) and one month (long term exposure) using bioassay method. Percent mortalities of the fishes were also observed during short and long term exposures to lower and higher concentrations. The concentration of the effluent and duration of exposure were observed to have significant effects on organisms. Besides, some necrotic spots, lesions along with tail rotting were also observed.

  Medicinal plants have been traditionally used for the treatment and prevention of peptic ulcer. The present study was designed to investigate antioxidant and antiulcer potential of methanolic fruit extract of Prunus domestica. Antioxidant activity was measured by 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl and hydrogen peroxide free radical scavenging method. The extract showed maximum scavenging activity i.e., 82.12±0.654 and 79.43±0.876 at 200 μg mL-1. Further the extract was evaluated for its anti-ulcerogenic activity by pyloric ligation model. The extract showed significant inhibition of ulcer i.e., 70.58% at 200 mg kg-1. The present study concludes that Prunus domestica fruit posses potent antioxidant and anti-ulcerogenic effect.

Objective: The aim of this study was to establish a successful living related kidney transplantation program in Libya and to bring down health care costs in management of patients with end-stage renal disease.

Patients and Methods: Since the transplantation program was launched on August 17, 2004, 135 patients have been transplanted up to August 17, 2007. The donors and recipients were screened prior to transplantation. Our immunosuppressive protocol was cyclosporine-based. Both donors and recipients were followed in the transplant outpatient clinic.

Results: Among 135 accepted pairs, 133 cases (98.5%) were genetically related donors and recipients and 2 cases were emotionally related. Mean donor age was 37 ± 9.5 years (range, 18–56 years). Recipient age was significantly lower, namely, 37 ± 13.6 years (range, 7–67 years). Among the recipients, 95 (70.4%) were males and 40 (29.6%) females, while among the donors, 102 (75.6%) were males and 33 (24.4%) females. The most common donor-recipient relationship was brother-to-brother. There was no early or late surgical mortality among donors. Delayed graft function was observed in 3 patients (2.2%), acute rejection in 6 (4.4%), and posttransplantation infections in 8 (5.9%). Urinary tract infections were diagnosed in 6 patients (4.4%) and pneumonia in 3 (2.2%). Postsurgical complications included ureteric kink in 2 patients (1.5%) and an anastomotic urine leak in 4 (3.0%). At 36 months, graft survival was observed in 130 patients (96.3%) and patient survival in 126 (93.3%).

Conclusion: The Libyan National Organ Transplant Program has been successful with results comparable to international levels.
