Abstract: A nonlinear formulation of optimum livestock diets, though very practical, has seen a limited research since classical techniques like Kuhn Tucker theory used by some researchers has its own limitatio ns due to the rigidity of mathematical characteristics that should hold good to apply this technique. The present study deals with the importance of linear livestock ration formulation for sahiwal cows of second to fifth lactation number to maximize the milk yield. Its solution is found using heuristic approaches viz Controlled Random Search Technique (RST2). We observe that the results obtained are well acceptable with slight deviations, takes less time due to computer usage, gives more flexibility to the decision maker. The techniques do not guarantee optimal solution but at least gives a solution which is best amongst the many solutions generated during the simulation process. The performance of both the techniques indicates that they can be well implemented for nonlinear livestock ration formulation problem. Download PDF

DOI: 10.30876/JOHR.7.1.2019.06-08
Abstract: In this paper, nonlinear effects of nutrient ingredients are introduced as an approach closer to the true effects of nutrient ingredients. A nonlinear model is developed to take consideration of nutri ent ingredients more effectively. The nonlinear model is introduced in order to maximize the weight gain in buffalo by the optimal use of feed ingredients. Data from a variable caloric density study for buffalo is fitted to nonlinear objective function expression for weight gain of the animal in terms of feed ingredients. National Research Council requirements are introduced as constraints for mathematical model. Proposed model with nonlinear programming measures its performance and gives a comparative result with linear programming models. Thus the study is an attempt to develop a nonlinear programming model for optimal planning and best use of nutrient ingredients. Download PDF

Abstract: A Periodic Mesoporous Organosilica (PMO) is an organic-inorganic hybrid composition with ordered porous structure on a molecular imprinted polymer (MIP). A triblock copolymer Pluronic F127 poly(ethyle ne glycol)- poly(propylene glycol)-poly(ethylene glycol) as structure directing agent (SDA) and 1,4-bis(triethoxysilyl)benzene (BTEB) as a precursor were used to synthesis the PMO-MIP using a non-covalent approach. The non-covalent approachshowed a limited number of selective imprinted sites due to the lack of strong intermolecular attractions between DDT template and the BTEB precursor. However, treatment of PMO-MIP with chlorotrimethylsilane (CTMS) significantly reduced the SiO-H and Si-OH resulting in a more non-polar material. The synthesized PMO-MIP was able to recover 106%, 85% and 99% of DDT, DDD and DDE respectively which shows that it can be used not only for extraction of DDT and its metabolites from environmental samples but also as a clean-up for samples.Download PDF

Abstract: Objective-The main objective is to prepare an efficacious, stable and economic cream containing the essential oil (citronella oil) of Cymbopogon nardus for its antimicrobial activity. Methods- Topic al formulations containing essential oil of Cymbopogon nardus were developed for their promising antimicrobial activity against selected microbes. The formulations (cream-w/o type) were prepared using standard methods and assessed for different pharmaceutical parameters. An in vitro antimicrobial study of the formulation was performed by using Agar-cup plate method. The cream formulations evaluated for pH, Viscosity and Spreadibility. Result- Among the four formulations (F1-F4), F4 showed good spreadability, viscosity & pH. The pH result shows that the formulations are considered acceptable without the risk of any irritation on application to the skin. As the formulation F4 was found to be the most suitable preparation and hence subjected for the antimicrobial activity. Cream formulation shown range for zone of growth inhibition (ZGI) 22.6 ± 0.58 for Staphylococcus aureus& 23.8 ± 1.15 mm for Escherichia coli. The BOROLINE and BOROPLUS cream are used for the comparative study. The Data obtained in the form of zone of growth inhibition (mm in diameter) indicate that the activity of cream formulation was more pronounced against Staphylococcus aureus & Escherichia coli. Conclusion- From the present work it was concluded that the formulated antimicrobial cream using essential oil is natural, safe, effective, usable for the skin and stable too. Download PDF

Abstract: Paediatric cutaneous mastocytosis (MC) is a rare and benign disease, affecting mainly children from birth to 2 years of age. Four clinical forms are distinguished: pigment aryurticaria, papulo-nodular MC (or mastocytoma), macular telangiectatic MC and diffuse MC. It is a clonal pathology, KIT dependent, considered favourable evolution, exceptionally fatal. No evolution are predictoris currently identified. Material and methods: Our retrospective study looked at 5 cases of cutaneous mastocytosis collected at the Dermatology Department of Hassan II University Hospital in Fez over a period of 3 years from January 2013 to January 2016. The average age of our patients was 27 months (with extremes ranging from 4 months to 3 years). The sex ratio was 4 (4 boys and 1 girl). For 5 patients, the diagnosis of MC was clinically suspected. The Darrier sign was positive in 2 cases. The histopathological study of cutaneous biopsies confirmed the diagnosis of CM in all cases. The immune histochemical study, done in 3 cases, mounted a diffuse and intense positivity to CD-117 (C-kit). The anatomo-clinical confrontation made it possible to retain the diagnosis of urticaria pigmentosa in 3 patients. In one child, it was a mastocytoma. Finally, the last patient presented at the same time lesions of urticaria pigmentosa in its bullous form associated with papulonodular mastocytosis lesions. No patients had extra-cutaneous manifestations of the disease. Conclusion: Through 5 cases of mastocytosis in children and a review of the literature, wetry to clarify the evolution and we insist on the need to establish standardized criteria for clinical analysis, follow-up recommendations, systematically to know the mutational status of KIT, to define the necessary predictive prognostic factors.Download PDF

Abstract: The spontaneous or unplanned purchase of goods is the best way to define impulse buying. Impulse buying can happen in any product ranging from new product, samples to well establish products with vari ous discount offers. There is limited work had been conducted to assess the impulse buying habit of customer in FMCG category. The formulated hypothesis is verified by using a self-reported questionnaire. The questionnaire contains the demographic information of respondents and 16 statements. A survey was planned and conducted on convenience basis. During survey 215 grocery items customers are approached and finally the sample size of the study is 179 by dropping the irrelevant ones. Impulsive buying is very important for grocery items. Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) companies and specially grocery item company should take into account what factors motivates and what factors de-motivates impulse buying, product category in grocery item which leads to maximum impulse buying and understand relationship between demographic detail and impulse buying in grocery items.Download PDF
