|Abstract||Solid tumour reducing effect in Swiss albino mice induced with Dalton's Lymphoma Ascites tumour cells (DLA) and Ehrlich Ascites tumour cells (EA) was determined with the application of He-Ne and Nd:YAG lasers along with the photosensitising agent 5-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA). The experiment was designed with six groups and each group consisted of six animals. Animals in Groups I-III were injected with DLA cell lines and Groups IV-VI were injected with EA cell lines (1 x 10(6) in 0.1 ml saline) subcutaneously in the right hind limb of mice to induce solid tumours. The tumour was further treated with photosensitiser induced laser therapy. The hyperthermic effect of Nd:YAG laser on tumour reduction was also evaluated. The results of the study suggest that the combination of He-Ne laser and 1 W Nd:YAG laser along with the photosensitiser 5-Aminolevulinic acid is a very effective therapeutic method for the treatment of tumour of DLA and EA cell lines. It is clear from the results that this mode of therapy very well depends on the type of tumour that has to be treated.|

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.
