Abstract: A study to evaluate the effectiveness of Cassia auriculata (Avaram poo) Flower extract in reducing blood glucose among Type2 Diabetes Mellitus clients in selected area of Puducherry. Objectives of the study is To assess the pretest level blood glucose among the control and experimental group, To administer the Cassia auriculata (Avaram poo) flower extract to the study group. To assess the post test level blood glucose among the control and experimental group. To evaluate the effectiveness of Cassia auriculata Flower (Avaram poo) extract in reduction of blood glucose level among type2 Diabetes Mellitus subjects.To associate the effectiveness of Cassia auricular Flower (Avaram poo) extract with demographic variables in experimental group. The research approach selected for the study was Quantitative approach, quasi Experimental design (pre-test and post test with control group). The study was conducted in selected PHC Kalapet, at Puducherry. Sample size was 60, 30 in experimental and 30 in control group were randomly assigned. The standardized glucometer was used to assess the blood glucose level. Pretest was done to assess the level blood glucose (FBS and PPBS) for both the groups. Experimental group received Cassia auriculata Flower (Avaram poo) extract for 30 days and control group did not receive any measures. Post test level of blood Glucose (FBS and PPBS) was evaluated on 30th day for both experimental and control group.The result revealed that the pretest mean score of fasting blood glucose was 133.50±37.43 and after the administrations of Cassia auriculata flower extract the post test mean score was 109.93±18.14. The mean difference score was 23.57. The calculated paired ‘t’ value of t = 5.478 was found to statistically highly significant at p<0.,001 level. This clearly indicates that the Cassia auriculata flower extract was found to be effective in reducing the fasting blood glucose level among type 2 diabetes mellitus clients in the experimental group. The pretest mean score of post prandial blood glucose was 262.40±73.18 and after the administrations of Cassia auriculata flower extract the post test mean score was 193.43±45.99. The mean difference score was 68.97. The calculated paired ‘t’ value of t = 8.103 was found to statistically highly significant at p<0.001 level. This clearly indicates that the Cassia auriculata flower extract was found to be effective in reducing the post prandial blood glucose level among type 2 diabetes mellitus clients in the experimental group. The demographic variable of marriage had shown significant association with the post test level of fasting blood glucose among the study group.

Topic: Physiology and Yield of Three Soybean (Glycine Max (L.) Merrill) Cultivars Different In Maturity Timing as Affectedby Water Deficiency

Abstract: Water deficiency is globally increasing as a direct result of climatic changes, threatening food production stability, especially of drought-susceptible crops, to which soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merrill) belongs. Soybean is mainly important because of its high protein and oil content. A field experiment was conducted in Debrecen, Hungary in 2017. Three soybean cultivars, different in maturity timing (very early-, early-, and middle-timing cultivars), were grown under two irrigation regimes; non-irrigated (NI) and fully-irrigated (FI) regime, in order to study the effect of water deficiency on the physiology and the yield of the above-mentioned cultivars.The yield of the three cultivars was increased when irrigation was applied, and though the increase was insignificant, yet the physiological traits were noticeably, and significantly in certain traits, different between the two irrigation regimes. It was concluded that water deficiency affects the physiology and the yield of soybean, and that the effect output is cultivar-dependent. More traits at different growth stages are needed to best understand water deficiency influence on soybean.

Topic: Improving Patient Satisfaction Index Using Combined Service Excellence Project And Ihi Virtual Breakthrough Series Collaborative

Abstract: The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Virtual Breakthrough Series (VBTS) collaborative was intended to improve patient satisfaction index (PSI) in Siloam Hospitals (SHs) and at the same time overcome geographical barrier of Indonesian Archipelago. Topic was selected for reasons guided by IHI VBTS collaborative. Subject matter expert came from existing Global Quality Development in collaboration with Sales and Marketing as well as Talent Management. The PSI was measured using Siloam Hospitals Customer Feedback Form. The PSI target of 80% or above was achieved in the end of action phase. PSI remained sustainable in the end of continuous improvement. There was a statistically significant difference between PSI by different phases of VBTS collaborative (H(2) = 35.818, p < 0.001), with a mean rank of 15.43 for baseline data, 35.11 for action phase, and 49.95 for continuous improvement. The VBTS collaborative to improve PSI has never been implemented in any private hospital group in Indonesia. Other hospital groups might learn from this quality improvement initiative.

Topic: Effect of Te Additive on Thermal Stability and Glass Forming Tendency of Ge-Sn-Se Chalcogenide Glass System

Abstract: Thermal characterization of Ge20Sn10Se70-xTex (x = 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15) glass system has been undertaken in the present research work. Dependence of glass transition temperature and thermal stability on glass composition has been established via DSC technique. Fundamental kinetic parameters viz. glass transition temperature Tg, Hruby parameter Hr, crystallization temperature Tc etc., have been experimentally calculated under non isothermal conditions at the constant heating rate of 100C. DSC traces shows higher difference between crystallization temperature Tc and glass transition temperature Tg which suggests the greater glass forming tendency and resistance towards crystallization. Glasses under study shows good thermal stability, hence, can find practical applications especially in phase change optical memory.

Keywords: Chalcogenide glasses, thermal properties, Differential scanning calorimetric technique, thermal stability, glass forming tendency

Topic: Microbial Approach Towards Biotechnological Production of 1,3-Propanediol (Bioplastic)

Abstract: Rapidly Expanding market for biodiesel has increased the supply and eventually decreased the cost of crude glycerol, which makes an attractive sustainable feed stock for the fuel and chemical Industry. The conversion of glycerol may be carried out by both chemical as well as biological means. Many microorganisms are known to convert glycerol to value added industrially important products. The present study involved the isolation of potent bacterial strains from soil sample obtained from biodiesel information and Demonstration center, Gulbarga University, Gulbarga, Karnataka, India. The isolated strain was Enterobacter safensis and is designated as GNTEW-13. As the Enterobacter safensis strain is the known producer of 1, 3-PDO, is an important component of fuel and polyesters (used widely in the petroleum industry) using biodiesel derived crude glycerol for producing 1, 3-Propanediol, which is a substituent in various industrial sectors as good and remarkable solution from a commercial as well as ecological point of view.

Topic: Sports Participation and Sporting Interest During Pre- Post Gender Shift of Transgender

Abstract: The objective of the present investigation was to examine sports participation before and after gender shift of transgender and to know about their current interest in sports. Sampling: To achieve the purpose of the study 108 transgender subjects were randomly selected from Coimbatore district, Tamilnadu, India. Methods: A specially designed and validated Sports aptitude questionnaire was used to resolve the purpose of the study which drew answers to questions about leisure time hobbies of transgender, their exposure to sports pre and post gender transition, and sports participation interest. Data was collected through personal interview. Analysis: Their favorite pass time was digital media, watching television serials, few into dance and art. Their latest crush was into driving two wheelers. While studying the sports participation before gender transition, 90% of them had participated and also excelled in sports before they had been identified as transgender. 82% has participated in track and field events, 4% in Kabaddi, 2% in Volleyball, 1%in Throwball and 1% in other games. After the gender transition only 1% of the population that too very rarely had participated in games and sports. Keen watch on the current interest towards participation, 80% of the samples display interest in participation in track and field 24% in Kabaddi and track and field, those above 35years wanted to involve but in easy, simple games. Conclusion: The ecstasy of play has left no stone unturned, despite age, gender and the physical & emotional pain they suffered whilst gender transition, they express play as one thing which takes them back to their childhood and which they look forward to be included in.

Topic: Estimating Cost-effectiveness of Pneumococcal Vaccine among Malaysian Hajj Pilgrims

Abstract: The Hajj is an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, the holiest city for Muslims. Each year, millions of Muslims from all over the world including Malaysia converge in Mecca and its surrounding areas to perform the Hajj pilgrimage. Due to overcrowding condition during this period, pneumococcal disease is one of the commonest ailments among Hajj pilgrims and contributed to a substantial burden to the healthcare. Objective: To estimate the cost benefit of introducing the 23-valent polysaccharides pneumococcal vaccine (PPV23) among Malaysian Hajj pilgrims. Methods: A total of 40,837 Malaysian pilgrims in the year 2017 were included in this study. An economic evaluation was carried out by comparison of two cohorts – no vaccination and vaccinated with PPV23 – using a decision tree model to simulate the benefits, costs and health outcomes of introducing PPV23. The model was programmed to include pilgrims who had a one-off exposure to mass congregation for a one-year cycle length, with no further follow-up evaluation. The model framework incorporated data on epidemiology, disease incidence, vaccine efficacy and cost inputs that were retrieved from the Lembaga Tabung Haji, Malaysia, literature review of a similar population and intervention characteristics. The perspective of this study is from the Ministry of Health, Malaysia. Results: The universal PPV23 strategy showed cost-savings for inpatient and outpatient care costs. The cost averted was estimated to be between RM0.9 to 1.2 million. The hospitalization and outpatient visit rate per cohort will be reduced from 67 to 23 cases and from 1,633 to 571 cases, respectively. Herd immunity and quality of life will also be gained as intangible benefits. Conclusions: The findings from this evaluation could inform policymakers, health care managers and relevant stakeholders in decision and policy-making on pneumococcal vaccine to improve the health status of Malaysian Hajj pilgrims.
