Adolescent Girls: Awareness, Rights and Reproductive Health
D. K. NarangN. ChhabraK. Koradia
The basic approach of this book has been shaped by our own research, professional and personal experience as teachers and researchers. We aimed for a text that includes complexities of adolescent age intervention which will be relevant and useful in bridging a gap between theory and research on adolescent’s lives. Proper knowledge imparted during adolescent age has positive impact on the adolescent’s development than at any other time in life. It is imperative to maximize both the amount and quality of knowledge that adolescents receive which will ensure a strong foundation for future learning. The text approaches adolescents as a comprehensive, integrated experience, one that takes place through their perception rather than through a formal adult directed approach. The need for parents, caretakers, teachers, who can integrate nature and education, using adolescent’s knowledge and perception as the integrators is also highlighted. The text focuses on the awareness needs of adolescents for their reproductive health. Expanded and updated discussions on the sexual issues, rights, current research studies on the impact of intervention on the knowledge and perception have been dealt. The intervention package is prepared which is suitable to the immediate environment, culture, education and age of adolescent girls. It can be useful for training of health workers, teachers and participation of parents. In addition, the content of book highlights the interacting contribution of biology to the development of adolescent girls, explains how the intervention process helps adolescents to utilize reproductive rights for their well being. ..more

Molecular Cell Biology, 2 Vols.
Mousumi Debnath
Molecular cell biology concentrates on the macromolecules and reactions studied by biochemist, the processes described by cell biologist and the gene control pathways identified by the molecular biologist and geneticist. The term “Cell” implies to a living entity wherein biological processes involve molecules that can form complex biological structures, organelles, membranes, tissues and organs. These structure interact via molecules that re present in the organism due to expression of information residing in the genetic material .The fine structure and function of the cell and its organelles, mechanism of gene function and regulation of gene expression and metabolic network of molecular interaction that keep the cellular machine going are some of the burning issues. This book introduces to the basic concepts of molecular cell biology as well as discusses the exciting advances in the field. This book starts with the building blocks of life, the cells and molecules that constitute the unity of living system. The importance of structural, functional and biochemical aspects of cells in biological organization, the basic molecular genetic mechanism and, how they function are also included in the book. Traditional as well as advanced technology like Chromosome painting using FISH and GISH that helps our understanding of gene control during development and disease states has been discussed in details. Significant advances in understanding phenomenon like transport of nutrients, ions and macromolecules across membranes, function of targeting protein, cytoskeleton cell motility, molecular mechanism of cell cycle, differentiation and cell death, cell signaling and developmental biology are some of the topics of focus. At the end, various characteristics and techniques for cell cultures and cell line development are discussed, The purpose of this book is to answer the questions arising in the minds of the young students, researcher and scientist in the field of cell and molecular biology at the same time summarize the current happenings in this field. ..more

Immunology is truly a fascinating discipline that meets the challenge and offers an opportunity to fight and check the spread of several diseases. It got recognition as a science in 1880 when the world witnessed a spate of progress brought about by the work of Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch. This pioneering work established the role of cellular components of the blood in destroying disease-causing organisms. Indeed, even the pathogenesis of autoimmune and other immunogenic diseases depends on humoral antibodies to some extent, while some are caused by cell-mediated reactions. Health care today not only means advances in therapy, but also requires accurate, sensitive, specific, quick and cost effective diagnostic systems. This book has been organised into 22 chapters arranged in logical sequence that will help in comprehending the concepts of this ever-expanding field. The chapters are as follows: · Immune System: An Introduction · Immunological Cells · Lymphatic System · Antibodies: Types, Structure and Functions · Antigen-Antibody Interaction · Cell-mediated Reactions · Immunity Regulation and Development · Immunity Evolution · Immunity Against Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi and Parasites · Complement · Hypersensitivity · Immune System Development and Tolerance · Transplantation and Autoimmunity · Immunology of Cancer · Stimulation of Immune Responses · Agglutination and Precipitation · The Evolution of Diversity · The Role of Different Cells in Antibody Responses · Immunisation and Vaccines · Monoclonal Antibodies · Cytokinins and Cytotoxic Cells · Blood Flow and Inflammation ..more

Nutritional Disorders and Community Health
Padmini GuptaRuchi Thakkar
SINCE time immemorial, man has lived in the lap of nature. He has drawn sustenance fromfruits, vegetables and roots. When he fell ill, he turned to Mother Nature for remedy and relief. Nutritional disorders have a pronounced effect on the health of the community. Although micronutrient deficiency does not produce hunger, it gnaws at the core of health. Most of its consequences are not really perceived; like an iceberg, its bulk lies beneath the surface. Even problems like blindness and cretinism, a grave form of mental retardation, seem to be unrelated to diet to most people. That is why deficiency of iodine micronutrients is called " hidden hunger" and extraordinary efforts should be made to tap all available channels to drag iodine deficiency disorders into the open to make it more visible as an issue at the political level and empower families with the preventive knowledge they need. Deficiency in iodine jeopardises children's mental health and often their lives. This starts even before birth; serious iodine deficiency during pregnancy may result in still births, abortions and congenital abnormalities such as cretinism. This book will prove useful not only to students of Home Science but also to nutritionists, medical and public health practitioners and policy makers. ..more
