|Abstract||Haemostatic efficacy of platelet concentrates prepared and stored in locally available PVC triple bags was compared against a Japanese bag. In vitro functional parameters studied included shape change, aggregation and secretion in response to ADP. We have observed remarkable difference in the aggregatory response of platelets stored at slightly varying temperatures. The stimulatory responses of platelets stored with constant agitation at 70 strokes per min and 23+/-2 degrees C, deteriorated drastically by the time platelets were stored for 48 h. Both the rate and the extent of aggregation were affected showing no response to ADP at 72 h. However, when platelets were stored in a BOD incubator, thermostated at 22+/-0.5 degrees C, with continuous horizontal agitation at 70 strokes per min, 50 per cent functional response was retained till 72 h. We also demonstrated fragmentation of platelet membrane during storage. The membrane fragments collected bq. high speed centrifugation, expressed PF3 activity. Shedding of microvesicles indicates alterations at the membrane level that possibly cause functional lesion during storage. Our data suggest the significance of controlling the storage temperature steadily, to get maximum post transfusion efficacy.|

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.
