|Abstract||Recent animal studies and clinical trials have reported the scope of heart-resident ckit-positive stem cells in regenerating infarcted myocardium. The determinants of successful isolation of such cells are unknown. The objective of this study was to determine the influence of risk factors for coronary artery disease and disease severity on the successful isolation of ckit-positive cells from right atrial tissue of patients with coronary artery disease. The findings suggest that coronary artery disease and cardiac remodeling in chronic ischemia may not affect the yield of ckit-positive cells from atrial tissue, but a significant negative correlation between the age of the patient and the number of migrated ckit-positive cells was observed. This suggests that in older patients, stem cell isolation from cardiac biopsies may not succeed, and such cells may not be available for cell therapy.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed 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 being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, 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 being developed at 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 Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
