|Title||:||Quantitative Analysis of Ethnobotanical data in Chatra district, Jharkhand|
|Authors||:||Rajnandani Kumari || Anil Kumar || Baidyanath Kumar|
Abstract: Ethnobotany accounts for the study of the relationship between people and plants for their use as medicines, food, shelter, clothing, fodder, fuel and some other household purposes. In Chatra district of Jharkhand more than 75 % of people in the rural area use traditional medicine to help meet their health care needs. In the present study the descriptive statistical methods of 323 medicinal plants of Chatra in terms of percentage and frequency have been employed to analyze the ethnobotanical data. The different quantitative indices used in ethnobotanical data analysis were use value (UV), frequency of citation (FC), relative frequency of citation (RFC), family importance value (FIV), informant consensus factor (ICF), fidelity level (FL %) and preference ranking.....

Abstract: Background: Bisphenol-A (BPA) is an environmental xenoestrogen that has been studied for its impact on fertility in animals and humans. Growing evidence showed that Bisphenol-A can disrupt the cytochrome P450 enzymes activities, leading to generation of reactive oxygen species with endocrine Interference effect, and can affect multiple organs. The objective of the study was to investigate the effects of varying concentrations of BPA (0.05 - 1μM for 13 weeks) on glutathione reductase and on glutathione peroxidase in female rats. Method: The eleven experimental groups rats were administered; 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, and 1 mg of BPA/kg bw/day for 13weeks respectively.....

|Title||:||The Isolation and Evaluation of Potential Probiotic Strains from Breast Milk|
|Authors||:||Dang Dinh Hiep || Nguyen Thuy Huong || Le Nguyen Khanh Duy|
Abstract: In this newspaper, we want to isolate lactic strains have potential probiotic from breast milk. As a result, 22 lactic strains were isolated from 7 samples (breast milk) and chose 8 strains had potential probiotic. These 8 lactic strains survived in hard conditions such as acid stomach, bile salt and resisted to bacteria with diameter clear zone 6 mm-15 mm. Besides, they had high lactate and adhesive activity. To obtain lactic strains had various probiotic properties, 4 lactic strains were selected and determined by 16S rDNA, they included Lactobacillus paracasei HV3.2; Lactobacillus paracasei HV4.1; Lactobacillus acidophilus HV4.2 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus M3.2..
