I-int phenotype among three individuals of a Parsi community from Mumbai, India

on RBCs from adult and cord blood samples. All three probands came from an ethnic Parsi community. The phenotype (referred to as I-int) was shown to be inherited, being passed through two generations, but none of the members of the families had displayed an adult i phenotype. The I-int phenotype detected showed an ethnic association because all three subjects belonged to an endogamous Parsi community that has migrated to India some centuries ago from Persia, the present-day Iran.

The results show that if women were not having amenorrhea period and had a high level of breastfeeding, the chance of not having next live birth was only two percent lower than those women who were using spacing methods in India. This pattern was found to be almost similar in all the regions of India except central and southern regions. There is no significant gain in postponing the next live birth has been observed in using the contraceptives than

Characterization of Meloidogyne indica (Nematoda: Meloidogynidae) Parasitizing Neem in India, with a Molecular Phylogeny of the Species

Neem is a perennial plant of family Meliaceae grown very commonly in India. During a survey in Rajasthan, India; a population of root-knot nematode was found in association with tender neem plants causing yellowing, stunting, and heavy root galling. Inspection of the perineal pattern morphology of the adult females, extracted from the galled roots, primarily led to identification of the species as Meloidogyne indica. Further, detailed morphological and morphometric illustrations of second-stage

First Report and Comparative Study of Steinernema surkhetense (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) and its Symbiont Bacteria from Subcontinental India

Two populations (CS19 and CS20) of entomopathogenic nematodes were isolated from the soils of vegetable fields from Bijnor district, India. Based on morphological, morphometrical, and molecular studies, the nematodes were identified as Steinernema surkhetense. This work represents the first report of this species in India. The infective juveniles (IJs) showed morphometrical and morphological differences, with the original description based on longer IJs size. The IJs of the Indian

Spatial distribution and risk area assessment of Aphelenchoides besseyi using geostatistical approaches in Giridih district of Jharkhand, India

White tip nematode (Aphelenchoides besseyi) is one of most important shoot parasite of rice having global distribution and quarantine significance (Khan et al., 2012; Kyndt et al., 2014). This important nematode pest was first reported by Dastur (1936) from Chhattisgarh region of Madhya Pradesh, India. In late 70s, a serious outbreak of rice white tip nematode (RWTN) was observed in 60% of cultivated rice of India with severe infestation reported from the southern parts of the country

Study of the specimens of these two populations showed that they were conspecific to A. saeedi (Siddiqi et al., 1992). Detailed redescription of this species based in morphological and morphometrical data is provided.

A prospective, observational study for optimization of antibody screening in pretransfusion compatibility testing

routine pretransfusion testing by blood transfusion services across India, primarily because transfusion services are decentralized—there are more than 3000 transfusion services across the country, with lack of standardization. Currently, AS is usually performed when an AHG crossmatch shows incompatibility. Therefore, scarce data are available in terms of optimization of RBC antibody detection during pretransfusion testing. Also, most studies do not comment on the population included in the study
