Bioremedial Approach to Degrade Chromium metal in Pulp & Paper Industry, from Department Science & Technology, Government of Rajasthan Dr. Sonika Saxena 2016-2018, 2 years

Project Summary: Dr. Richa Bhardwaj

The project proposed to investigate the relationship between the chemical composition (antioxidant potential) and biological activity of medicinal plant Tephrosia Purpurea and identify the compounds relevant to biological activity (Nephrolithiasis) as candidates for drug development. Bio-guided isolation has been a dominant strategy to screen active compounds from natural products. This theme was developed in the wake of fast degradation of the genetic variability in the region. The information will lead to identification and screening of such useful compounds, which may lead to the less occurrence or dissolution of kidney stones. The study of available variability may be screened for their preservation, as fast eradication going on may result in loss of variability. invitro and invivo screening of the potential of compounds would result in identification of bioactive components and thus would Establish economic importance of this plant, which may not only solve the problem of deforestation but will also induce aforestation.

Project Summary: Dr. Yogesh Singh

Tuberculosis (TB) has been an unrelenting scourge. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that approximately one-third of the world’s population is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In 2013, 9 million people fell ill with TB and 1.5 million died from the disease. About 480 000 people developed MDR (Multi drug resistance)-TB in the world in 2013. More than half of these cases were in India, China and the Russian Federation. It is estimated that about 9.0% of MDR-TB cases had XDR. Despite this significant burden, only a limited number of tests have been developed and implemented for the rapid diagnosis of tuberculosis. Further, since the majority of TB disease burden occurs in underdeveloped and resource-limited settings, the need for a cost-efficient method is paramount. The emergence of drug-resistant strains of M. tuberculosis is one of the most critical issues facing TB researchers and clinicians today. Multidrug-resistant (MDR) M. tuberculosis is defined as being resistant to the two best first-line drugs used treat TB: rifampin (RIF) and isoniazid (INH). Real Time PCR High resolution Melt (PCR-HRM) curve analysis is an ideal screening method for the TB laboratory, with minimal requirements of cost and time. The method is a closed-tube assay that can be performed in an interchangeable 96- or 384-well microplate format enabling a rapid, reliable, simple and cost-effective handling of even large sample numbers.

Project Summary: Ms. Juhi Saxena

Cerebral malaria (CM) is the rigorous and fatal neurological complication of Plasmodium falciparum infection and responsible for more than two million deaths annually. CM is characterized by sequestration of immune cells and parasitized red blood cells in the brain, activation of the inflammatory response, and eventual loss of blood-brain barrier. Nanoparticles are attracting an attention as drug delivery systems because of their superior loading efficiency. Green nanoparticles including chitosan-based nanoparticles are one of the best studied drug delivery systems and have been widely used to load drugs due to the biodegradability and biocompatibility of chitosan. Green tea extract epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effect as well as inhibit growth of P. falciparum. Hence the present proposal has been designed to synthesize and formulate chitosan oligosachharide nanoparticle loaded with EGCG (CON-EGCG) for treatment of cerebral malaria. Further toxicity evaluation of CON-EGCG will be performed under in vitro condition.

Project Summary: Dr. Sonika Saxena

During the past decade, there has been growing concern that the world is moving towards water crisis. Water crisis is nowadays one of the most glaring problems that has been staring at us and is becoming more and more piercing day by day. A prime cause of the global water concern is the ever-increasing world population and industrialization. The scarcity of water can be largely avoided with better water management practices and water conservation. The reuse of wastewater after treatment is an environmentally sound solution to overcome the shortage of water. Effluents from textile, tannery, paint ,pulp & paper industry at small and large scale, contain considerable amount of toxic substances. As particular concern to Rajasthan, paper and pulp industries produce large amount of solid and liquid waste containing hexavalent chromium, salt of zinc, sulphate, copper and sodium etc. The treatment of these wastes is essential before discharging them to environment because of the toxicity and carcinogenicity. In view of the aforesaid perspective the present work has been undertaken for the degradation of chromium through biological method (bioremediation) in the above industries. Bioremediation is the application of biological agents from the environment to solve environment problem such as degradation.
