0-8.1%; seeds 4.4-5.3%), protein (pulp 4.7-7.2%; seeds 5.9-8.5%) and fat (pulp 2.6-4.0%; seeds 4.6-5.3%) as compared to most of the known wild edibles in the region. They, however, contained reasonably lower food energy, largely due to low carbohydrate content. All the five species emerged as good source of minerals, especially Ca and K. The values
of various nutrient and mineral elements varied significantly among species, which implies potential of different species can be harnessed for diverse attributes. The fruits, however, possessed anti-nutritional factors like tannins and phytic acid, which need to be tackled appropriately while considering these fruits for value addition as health food.

“Embolic stroke is a common complication in patients on ventricular assist devices
in both adults and children. The reported incidence of strokes in children supported by VADs varies from 7 to 38%. The rapid increase in recent years in the availability of both adult and pediatric VADs will likely add to the overall prevalence of strokes in patients being bridged to heart transplant. Strokes in this population can be lethal as they frequently necessitate withdrawal of the extracorporeal device support and withdrawal from the organ transplant waiting list. We present a case of a fully anti-coagulated 29-month-old supported on a Berlin EXCOR LVAD (Berlin, Germany) with embolic stroke which was treated successfully with direct thrombolysis
ABT-888 chemical structure Nepicastat with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator. This is the first report which uses intra-arterial thrombolytics while on a ventricular assist device in a pediatric patient.”
“Spermatozoa are constantly exposed to the interphase between oxidation through high amounts of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and leukocytes, and reduction by means of scavengers and antioxidants. Considering the very special functions as being the only cells with such high polarization and exerting their functions outside the body, even in a different individual, the female genital tract, the membranes of these cells are chemically composed of an extraordinary high amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids. This in turn, renders them very susceptible to oxidative stress, which is defined as an imbalance between oxidation and reduction towards the oxidative status. As a result, ROS deriving from both leukocytes and the male germ cells themselves cause a process called ‘lipid peroxidation’ and other damages to the sperm cell. On the other hand, a certain limited amount of ROS is essential in order to trigger vital physiological reactions in cells, including capacitation or the acrosome reaction in sperm. The treatment of patients with antioxidants to compensate the oxidative status caused by oxidative stress is highly debated as uncontrolled antioxidative treatment might derail the system towards the reduced status, which is also unphysiological and can even induce cancer.
