Questionnaire consist of 30 questions in which 17 questions are used to evaluate knowledge &amp; remaining 13 questions are used to evaluate the girls at risk by using Rotterdam criteria. Descriptive statistics were used.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The study was conducted in a population of 550 females of age group of 16- 24. The mean age of the students is 18.8 <u>+</u> 1.9.Only 9% of girls are having good knowledge regarding PCOD before the counseling, which was improved to 85.8% after counseling. This result shows the effectiveness of educational program which helps them to prevent infertility problems and helps in management of PCOD.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>It is important to create awareness about PCOD to the population, so that the future generation will be aware about PCOD and will be safe and stay healthy and educational program is effective in improving the knowledge of college girls. Furthermore efforts have to be developed to create the awareness.</p> Sreeja Nyayakar, Latha Sree Moothi Latha Sree Moothi Copyright (c) 2020 Sreeja Nyayakar, Latha Sree Moothi Latha Sree Moothi Thu, 02 Jul 2020 00:00:00 +0530 Extraction of Kapura Tulasi(Ocimum kilimandscharicum) leaves: Phytochemical studies and Anti- diabetic activity of the Ethanolic Extracts <p>The leaves of Ocimum kilimandscharicum (privately known as Kapura Tulasi) have for some time been being used in the indian arrangement of medication for its enemy of diabetic properies.Could be a short herb, nearby to india it is used to treat various afflictions checking colds, hacks,stomach torments,measles and the runs.ocimum kilimandscharicum, has a spot to family lamiaceae .The current work , meant to assess <em>in vitro </em>enemy of diabetic action. Against diabetic appraisal was done by the boundaries, for example, glucose take-up by yeast cells, estimation of hemoglobin glycosylation, extricate impact at physiological glucose fixation. The standard medication utilized was Metronidazole and gallic corrosive. It indicated that EEOK in portion of 250µg/ml demonstrated high level of glucose take-up and hindered the hemoglobin glycosylation by expanding the grouping of hemoglobin. It additionally showed the hindrance of hemoglobin glycosylation at various physiological convergences of the glucose where the concentrate diminishes the development of the glucose-hemoglobin complex and in this manner measure of free hemoglobin increments. In view of the outcomes, it has been demonstrated that the EEOK displayed hostile to diabetic movement.</p> Motte.Sushma Motte.Sushma, Lahari.Sidde Lahari.Sidde, Bandi.Jayanthi Bandi.Jayanthi Copyright (c) 2020 Thu, 02 Jul 2020 00:00:00 +0530 PHYTOCHEMICAL AND IN-VITRO PHARMACOLOGICAL SCREENING OF OCIMUM KILIMANDSCHARICUM EXTRACT <p><em>Ocimum kilimandscharicum</em> is a short herb, native to India. In traditional medicine, it is used to treat various ailments including colds, coughs, abdominal pains, measles and diarrhea. Medicative plants, the “back bone” of ancient medication which implies over 3.3 billion folks within the less developed countries utilize medicative plants on an everyday basis. <em>Ocimum kilimandscharicum </em>Guerke (<em>Syn. </em>O<em>cimum camphora </em>Guerke) belongs to family Lamiaceae.

The study was conducted in Jayabharath hospital, Nellore. which was conducted for a period of 6 months from June 2019- November-2019.Hypertensive patients, of either sex, above 18 years of age, with or without co-morbidities and Patient willing to give there informed consent to participate in the study are included in our study and the Pregnant hypertensive patients are excluded from the study.</p> <p><strong>Results and Discussion:</strong> At baseline there was no significant difference between the blood pressures, QoL score, adherence score, and KAP of the test and control groups. As patient in both group continued to see there physician regularly, both showed in improvement in blood pressure control at final follow up. However improvement in the test group blood pressure was more significant reduction (p&lt;0.05). At final follow up, a significantly (p&lt;0.05) some large number of patients in the test group had achieved better blood pressure control compared to the base line.</p> P V S N D Alekya P V S N D Alekya, M.

Each saliva and sputum sample was further divided into 3 groups, Group A: sputum stained by Ziehl-Neelsen staining method, Group B: sputum smears stained by Papanicolaou staining method, Group C: sputum smears stained by bleach modified Papanicolaou staining method. saliva and sputum infected by Papanicolaou and observed under a Fluorescent Microscope for tubercle bacilli..</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The results obtained from saliva stained smears showed 63.3% of cases positive in both BMP and Pap stained saliva samples and 46.6% of cases positive in ZN stained saliva samples. Further grading of the individual staining method was carried out. Scant bacilli; 20% in Pap and 10% in BMP, 1+; 30% in&nbsp; Pap and 33.3% in BMP, 2+;10% in Pap and 6% in BMP and 3+-3.3% in Pap and 13% in BMP. ZN stained saliva samples scant bacilli; 56.6%, 1+; 13%, 2+; 10% and 3+; nil. Sputum samples stained by BMP, Pap, and Zn showed 100% positive results (30/30). But the grading differed among individual staining techniques.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>In our study sputum samples showed 100% positivity in comparison to saliva samples with 63.33%. Though the results of the saliva sample were lower than that of the sputum samples, the BMP method used in our study is first of its kind to the best of our knowledge. It is a simpler, convenient, and economical method that can be used in routine diagnosis of &nbsp;TB.</p> Nagabhushan Vidya Nagabhushan Vidya , KUMARASWAMY K L KUMARASWAMY K L , Litha Litha, Blessy P John Blessy P John Copyright (c) 2020 Wed, 08 Jul 2020 00:00:00 +0530 Armamentarium for Reduction of Transmission of COVID-19 Infection in Dental Operatory <p>The Pandemic of Novel Corona Virus Disease which emerged in December 2019 in WUHAN city is having an overshadowing impact on everyone’s life. Its mode of spread is primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Research labs are joining forces to find a therapy and a preventive vaccine. Preventive and extraordinary safety measures are crucial to reducing the spread of SARS-CoV-2(severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) among health care professionals (HCP). HCP performing or assisting aerosol-generating procedures are classified as ‘very high exposure risk’ workers. Dentists are one among higher risk HCP as they deal with oral cavity problems. This is because most of the procedures are involved with aerosol production in dentistry and saliva is the best medium for the dwelling of Covid-19. So, along with the use of standard preventive measures in reducing the transmission of COVID -19 it is essential for dental offices to change the operating modes. As we all know ‘Prevention is better than cure’ In this article, we reviewedauxiliary armamentariums required for prevention of transmission of Covid-19 infection to be used by dental health care professionals while providing urgent dental care to the patients. Currently, in the absence of a rapid diagnostic device with high sensitivity/ specificity and without an effective therapy or vaccine against SARS-CoV2, it is strongly recommended to treat each patient as a COVID-19 positive. So that Appropriate safety measures will protect both dental professionals and patients in transmitting this pandemic disease.</p> Parvathi PSHL Parvathi PSHL, Rao BL Rao BL, Sruthi YSS Sruthi YSS, Vinay Kumar P Vinay Kumar P, Chakradhar V Chakradhar V Copyright (c) 2020 Mon, 13 Jul 2020 00:00:00 +0530 A case Report Recurrent Mucinous Carcinoma of the Breast: A Case Report <p>We report a case of recurrent mucinous carcinoma of the breast in a 60 year old female who presented with two separate lumps on the left chest wall for 1 year. She gave the history of left sided mastectomy 15 years ago and hysterectomy 10 years ago. The patient did not seek any medical attention for the lumps since she noticed them a year ago. On examination, there were two lumps larger one measuring 7.5 x 5 cm and other smaller one measuring 3 x 2.5 cm. Core needle biopsy showed ductal carcinoma. CT scan was done which showed post-operative status of left side breast cancer with left chest wall mass and metastatic left axillary mass. Ultrasonography of whole abdomen and bony scan was done and no metastasis was seen. She underwent en-bloc excision of the tumor with involved muscle. Histopathology was done from two different centers both revealed Mucinous carcinoma of the breast. She was advised to take adjuvant chemotherapy.</p> Adnan Bacha, Md. Sanaullah Shelly Md.
