Decentralization Of Primary Care Does Affect Diabetes Mellitus

The provision of primary healthcare is based on the delivery of basic care and the dissemination of prevention practices to the population. In Brazil, a typical developing country characterized by the double burden of disease (coexistence of communicable and non-communicable […]

Self-Cleaning R & D At DST-IIEST Solar PV HUB At Shibpur, Howrah, 711-103, India

With the ever-rising technological advancements to leverage solar energy in the modern era, maintaining the optimum performance of such energy devices like solar cell panels for PV applications and mirrors used in CSP (solar thermal energy generation) has become an […]

Anorexia Nervosa: Needing To Eat Is Not Enough; You Have To Want It

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a debilitating disorder with the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric illness. From an evolutionary standpoint, AN is a paradox. Humans have evolved to survive famine through biological adaptations that limit energy usage when food is […]

Mucosal Immunoglobulin: An Important Tool In The Olfactory Organ Of Teleost Fish To Fight The Protozoan, Ichthyophthirius multifiliis

Olfaction is a very important chemoreception that forms the sense of smell in animals. Terrestrial animals can detect low concentrations of airborne, volatile chemical substances thanks to the olfactory system to accomplish the recognition of conspecifics, predators, and prey. Importantly, […]

Desert Dust In The Middle East

The current climate change we experience calls for understanding how our environment responded to natural variations of climate in the past. It is well established that the global climate had shifted from glacial conditions when ice accumulated in the poles […]

Tuberculosis is one of the most severe infectious diseases in the world, responsible for more than 1.5 million deaths every year (1). The cause of this disease is the lung infection generated by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), which escapes […]

From Micro To Macro: Physicochemical Surface Properties Of Biogenic Silica Structures And Their Role In Silicon Cycling

Silicon (Si) is the seventh most abundant element in the universe, and thus it can be found almost everywhere on Earth. That is why it is not surprising that numerous organisms are evolutionarily adapted to use monomeric silicic acid (H4SiO4) […]
