Abstract: Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a biologically aggressive and an immunopathological subtype of breast cancer that is characterized by absence expression of estrogen and progesterone receptors (ER/PR) and amplification of the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER-2) gene. Because of this, patients with TNBC do not benefit from hormonal or trastuzumab-based treatment strategies, which strongly demand the development of alternative and innovative treatment strategies. Other available approaches such as chemotherapy mainly lack the specificity which generates severe side effects regarding toxicity. Therefore, the development of targeted treatments, as well as early diagnosis is vital to ensure an adequate and timely therapeutic intervention in patients with TNBC. Recent years have witnessed an exceptional advancement in the development of nanotechnology-based approaches to tackle advanced tumors including TNBC. This article expounds latest nanotechnology-based precision tools that are employed to treat TNBC viz smart nanoparticles, liposomes, dendrimers, solid lipid nanoparticles and carbon-based nanomaterials, etc. and also provides a comprehensive outlook on emerging nano-based approaches that are under preclinical and clinical testing for the early diagnosis and theragnosis of TNBC along with their regulatory status.

Abstract: Sleep is a global state, the control mechanisms of which are manifested at every level of biological organization, from genes and intracellular mechanisms to networks of cell populations, and to all central neuronal systems at the organismic level, including those that control movement, arousal, autonomic functions, behavior and cognition. For the maintenance of good health quality of sleep is a vital physiological process. Sleep is needed to regenerate certain parts of the body, mainly the brain, so that it may continue to function optimally. Several studies indicate that sleep and rehabilitation after long term sleep deprivation facilitates memory consolidation.

Abstract: Marine ecosystems consist of biologically diverse organisms. Marine organisms exhibit unique physiological and structural features which facilitate them to survive under the different extremities of salinity, pH, and pressure. Among the diverse marine microbial population, marine actinobacteria associated with different invertebrate hosts have attracted attention during the recent years. Particularly, coral and sponge associated actinobacteria are being investigated with greater interest. Actinobacteria are well known for their ability to produce novel compounds of clinical and pharmaceutical importance. Hence, actinobacteria associated with marine invertebrate animals can be an important resource for novel bioactive compounds. Further, the diversity of the actinobacteria associated with different marine hosts may help understanding how they thrive under harsh environmental conditions and it may lead to the discovery of novel antimicrobial metabolites with potential biotechnological applications. In addition, quorum sensing (cell-to-cell communication in bacteria) is known to play a key role in the regulation of secondary metabolite production and morphogenesis in the phylum Actinobacteria. The quorum quenching ability in many actinobacteria has potential in controlling the plant and animal pathogens. Overall, this review focuses on the diversity, abundance and beneficial effects of the actinobacteria associated with the marine animals.

Abstract: Production performance and fertility of dairy cows determine the profit of the dairy farm and are determined by various multi-oriented factors. Andaman and Nicobar Islands has humid tropical environmental condition with heavy rainfall (monsoon season) and dry seasons. The milk producing dairy cows are decreased over a period of the time from 1992 to 2012, whereas the human population is increased drastically in A and N Islands and also it is needed to improve the per capita availability of milk. Various factors affecting milk production such as crossbreeding programme, season, nutrition and mastitis and fertility status of dairy cows such as pathological, infectious, nutritional and genetic causes of infertility were need to be analysed and rectified. Therefore, greater efforts are required from all quarters to improve the reproduction and production performance in dairy cattle to fulfill the milk production and per capita availability and increasing the income of the farmers. Factors affecting the milk production and fertility of cattle and buffalo were explained in details in the present review based on the reports available. The present information are useful for the scientific community, cattle breeders and farmers, policy makers and state animal husbandry department of Andaman and Nicobar for designing their experiment to improve the milk production and reduce the infertility status of Islands.

Abstract: Infertility is one of the common problems in dairy herd, which prevents the one calf crop per year. Urovagina play a significant role in creating infertility in mare as well as in cow by causing necrotizing endometritis and making the uterus unsuitable for spermatozoa and embryo. Diagnosis and treatment options to correct the urovagina and its reproductive outcome in mare are well established. The information regarding urovagina and evidence of economically more pragmatic treatment is lacking in cows. Therefore, the aim of the current review was to review the effect of urovagina on fertility of dairy cows and treatment modality especially more pragmatic and economically viable under field condition.

Abstract: In the present investigation chicken carcasses were sourced from organized marketing sector; two super markets and two modern processing facilities in and around the Bangalore city and the samples were designated as brand A, B and C, D respectively. A total 120 samples i.e. 30 samples (50 g) were drawn from each of the brand consisting of the breast region and thigh region, equally and were subjected to microbial load for the enumeration of total viable count, Coliforms, Staphylococcus count, Streptococcus count and Salmonella count, There was a highly significant difference (P< 0.01) for TVC, Coliforms, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus and Salmonella counts among four different brands, but no significant difference in Salmonella counts was noted among 4 brands and between the sample locations. Prevalence rate was 100 per cent for Coliforms, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus but for Salmonella it was 43.33, 30.00, 20.00 and 23.33 per cent in brands A, B, C and D, respectively for breast region and 46.66, 33.33, 26.66 and 26.66 per cent in brands A, B, C and D respectively for thigh region. In general, counts were higher in brand A and B compared to C and D. The lower counts in brands C and D could be due to the fact that carcasses from processing facilities are maintained under strict hygiene and cold chain till they reached the consumer. The higher counts observed in brands A and B obtained from the supermarkets may be due to the fact that these carcasses were obtained from different unhygienic sources and packed for sale at the super markets.
