|Abstract||The anti-viral drug HPA-23 (ammonium 21-tungsto-9-antimonate) has been proposed for use in the combat against AIDS. The two elements tungsten (W) and antimony (Sb) in the molecule enable the intracellular localization and possible breakdown of the product to be studied using electron probe microanalysis methods. Such studies have been carried out after intravenous injection of different doses of HPA-23 in the rat followed by removal of the liver, kidney, thymus, spleen, bone marrow, and lung. HPA-23 was concentrated in the lysosomes and localized in the macrophages of different tissues (thymus, spleen, and bone marrow). The W/Sb ratio was identical in these macrophages. This localization is perhaps relevant to the mechanism of action of HPA-23.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
