A new approach to assess fracture healing

This technique, based on an artificial intelligence (AI) simulation model, could be helpful in predicting the improvement in fractures of the thigh bone after surgery. In addition, this technique can also help the surgeon choose the right implant or procedure before the surgery required for fracture healing.

Researchers develop VLP-based vaccine candidate for COVID-19

New Delhi, Oct 18th (India Science Wire): Given the frightening experience of the outbreak of COVID-19, researchers are continuously looking for more effective vaccine options.  They have been trying to better understand the SARS-CoV-2 virus and developing newer vaccines against it. How do vaccines work? Vaccines offer great protection against the virus, but some people who have received the shots still catch COVID-19. To develop even better vaccines and treatments, ideally, experiments need to be conducted with the actual virus, which can only be handled in specialized laboratories. Working with live viruses can put personnel at risk, and the requirement for specially designed settings can limit the scope of research that some teams can perform. A safer and easier strategy is to use virus-like particles (VLPs), molecular mimics that look and act like a particular virus without being infectious. The particles can even serve as a vaccine as is the case with two currently available ones against the human papillomavirus. Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, working in collaboration with the Translational Health Science and Technology Institute (THSTI), Faridabad, Haryana; have developed SARS-CoV-2 Virus-Like Particles (VLPs). VLPs could be a possible vaccine candidate, researchers said in a statement, released by IIT Delhi, on Tuesday. The VLPs tricked the immune system into launching a counterattack in mice, just as it does against SARS-CoV-2. “Majority of VLPs developed worldwide have utilized only spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 as the primary antigen. However, VLPs are as ‘native virus-like’ as possible, which means they contain all four structural proteins from SARS-CoV-2 (S- Spike, N- Nucleocapsid, M- Membrane, E- Envelope). This could be an advantage in case there are several mutations in a spike in any variant, which preclude the binding of neutralizing antibodies”, said Dr Manidipa Banerjee, lead researcher and Professor at IIT Delhi’s Kusuma School of Biological Sciences.   “Animal experiments carried out at THSTI indicate that newly developed VLPs trigger a strong adaptive immune response against multiple antigens. Vaccines based on inactivated virus naturally have this advantage, however, VLPs are safer as they are non-infectious due to lack of genome”,…

Researchers develop a new compound to treat Autism

New Delhi, Nov 17: A group of Indian researchers has developed a compound that promises to offer a better treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder. They have found in studies with a mouse model that it had the potential to improve daily activities like learning and recollecting new tasks in patients suffering from the disorder. What is Autism Spectrum Disorder? Autism Spectrum Disorder is one of the major health issues causing a tremendous burden to human society. Despite strenuous efforts around the world, there still is no drug available to treat it. Current therapeutics aim to only alleviate symptoms such as epileptic seizures or sleep issues but not to treat the multiple problems of the disorder. A major challenge in finding therapeutics to treat it is to help the patients perform their daily activities with efficiency close to that of a healthy person. In the new study, researchers from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR), an autonomous research institute of the Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India, have developed a compound that has demonstrated a potential to restore neuronal function, learning and memory, and reduce epileptic seizures in a mouse model. Interestingly, the study showed that the compound restored the neural functions not only when administered during development (the equivalent of babies (1-2 years)) and childhood stages (3-6 years)) but also after mid-childhood (7-11 years) when most of the brain regions are considered to have formed properly. Previous studies have attributed disruption in optimal brain development, mainly neuronal connections, during the early stage of development (i.e., babies/childhood) as one of the causes of the disorder. Due to the altered brain development, information processing becomes aberrant, and understanding simple tasks becomes exceptionally challenging for patients suffering from it. Using electrophysiology, which helps understand how neurons communicate, and behavioural experiments, which indicates the overall brain function, the JNCASR team has shown that the new compound named 6BIO can restore the information processing in the mouse model. Thus, it has a strong potential as a therapeutic to treat the disorder. The researchers have published a report on their study…

All the culture of India is our common heritage: Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru

During the celebration of 75 years of independence of the country, we are remembering the thoughts of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, the architect of modern India. “There is only one India of which all of us, you and I, are inheritors.

Bhadant Gyaneshwar Mahasthivir: Celebrating the life of a Burmese Monk dedicated to the cause of Buddhism in India

Bhadant Gyaneshwar Mahasthivir Kushinagar is celebrating the life and achievements of Bhadant Gyaneshwar Mahasthivir, the Monk in Chief of Mahaparinirvan main temple, who completed his 85th birthday on November 10th. Kushinagar: a prominent place for the Buddhists As we all know, Kushinagar is one of the foremost prominent places for Buddhists all over the world as Buddha delivered his last sermon here and met his ‘Mahaparinirvana’.  Recently, Kushinagar is also linked with the international aviation circuit as a new airport has just been inaugurated here a couple of weeks back. Who is Bhadant Gyaneshwar? Bhadant Gyaneshwar is the most revered Buddhist monk living in Kushinagar and is President of Kushinagar Bhikshu Sangh since February 21st, 2005 after the ‘Parinirvana’ i.e. passing away of Bhadant Aniruddha Mahathera of Lumbini. History of Kushinagar Bhikshu Sangh The Kushinagar Bhikshu Sangh was initiated by Bhadant Chandra Mani Mahathera on December 18th, 1952 and he remained president of it till May 8th, 1972. Afterwards Bhaddant Utikheindariya Mahathera and Achutananda Mahathera became the president. That way, Bhaddant Gyaneshwar Mahathera is the sixth President of Kushinagar Bhikshu Sangha. Life of Bhadant Gyaneshwar Bhadant Gyaneswhar was born as Aaon Jaa Wey (childhood name) on November 10th, 1936 in a village named Zibenji in the district of Akyab, in Arakans province of Myanmar, on the coastal region, where Buddhism once thrived and now part of Rakhine state, which has got famed for the conflict of Rohingyas versus the natives of the region who feel that demographic changes might affect the supremacy of the locals if the Rohingyas are not thrown out or controlled. Of course, the crisis is of the recent years and not that period when Bhadant was growing.  On April 12th, 1949, he got ordained as Shramaner when his Guru named him as Jannisar which got interpreted in Hindi as Gyaneshwar. He learnt Pali and got admission at the University in Rangoon, now known as Yangon, the capital city of Myanmar, where he learnt Pali literature. On June 3rd, 1956 he became a Bhikkhu after six years of studies in Buddhism at the University. Burma, now Myanmar…
