Importance of Colorectal cancer biomarkers in epigenetic alterations

Both genetic and epigenetic alterations can cause Colorectal cancer (Voyias, Patel and Arasaradnam, 2016). Epigenetic modifications are those direct DNA modifications that influence non-coding RNAs like DNA methylation, histone modification, and chromatin remodelling. The increase in research in the area of biomarkers has improvement in diagnosis, prognosis, and prediction of treatment response in the patients with colorectal cancer. This article presents the emerging roles of epigenetic modifications in the detection, prognosis, and prediction of treatment response for colorectal cancer. Continue »

Influence of urbanization on the prevalence of Malaria in India

Urbanization is one of the many risk factors for malaria prevalence in India (Anvikar et al., 2016). Urbanization influenced malaria prevalence has escalated over the past two decades in India. According to the UN Department of economics and social affairs, 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, which is expected to increase up to 68% by the year 2050 (UN Department of Economics and Social Affairs, 2018). This rise of urbanization predicts a massive rise in malarial prevalence, mainly, drug-resistant and mutated strains of Plasmodium. This also means that the government of India, along with the pharma industry has a bigger role to play in managing the new challenge of increasing drug-resistant malarial vectors in India.

Genes involved in risk prediction of Ischemic stroke

Stroke has become a major health problem across the world, they are divided into two main types, ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke. Ischemic stroke occurs as a result of the disturbance in the blood supply to the brain, often due to blockage in one of the arteries that leads to the brain. The underlying condition for this interruption in the development of lipid deposits that line the walls of the blood vessels. This condition is also known as “atherosclerosis.” Continue »

Treatment of biomass from bioremediation processes

With the increasing pace of development in the agriculture and manufacturing industries, there is a release of a large amount of biomass waste into the environment. Excess load of this hazardous waste has led to environmental pollution (Kamaludeen et al., 2003). Bioremediation is a process which uses biological agents i.e. microorganisms like bacteria, yeast, and fungi, to make the soil and water sources free from contaminants of the biomass (Strong and Burgess, 2008). The consortium of specific microorganisms grows on the contaminated sites to perform their action to eliminate the waste. These microorganisms utilize the contaminants as nutrients or energy sources (Tang et al., 2007).

Understanding public healthcare expenditures by the Government of India

Forecasting public health expenditure by the Government of India is an important aspect to assess the government’s effectiveness towards disease control and policy implications. Assessing the trend in the public healthcare expenditure by the central government, predicted that the public health expenditure will get doubled in the next five years. Expenditures will rise from 267000 crores rupees in the year 2018 to 486000 crores rupees in the year 2022 (Ministry of Health & Welfare, 2017). Continue »

Role of Political epidemiology towards infectious disease management

Political epidemiology towards infectious disease management primarily identifies needed factors for the evaluation of the efficacy of policies. These factors comprise of cases of incidence, mortality, and demographic values. Factors like existing policies and programmes for the eradication and control programmes help in comparison and assessment of infectious disease management programmes (Taylor, 2009). Continue »

Distribution of Plasmodium strains of Malaria in India

Plasmodium genus causes an estimated 438,000 global deaths annually. In India, mainly two species of Plasmodium is prevalent, Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax (Siwal, et al., 2018). P. vivax accounts for 53% of the total malaria cases in India. However, more of drug-resistant Plasmodium falciparum have been identified in India over the last two decades. The burden of malaria in India is complex from highly variable malaria epidemiological profiles, transmission factors, and the presence of multiple Plasmodium species. Therefore this article explores the distribution of both strains in India in four states of India, i.e. Odisha, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. These states have indicated a consistent high cases of malaria. Continue »
