|Abstract||Skin injury is followed by accumulation of a fibrin based provisional matrix which normally drives the process of wound repair. Exogenous fibrin with extra cellular matrix (ECM) components can also favor the wound healing process. In a preliminary study we found that lyophilized fibrin sheet (FS) arrest bleeding from rabbit skin wound but it remained dry during the repair period and did not accelerate the healing process better than untreated control. In the current study, hyaluronic acid (HA) was incorporated into FS and the resultant HA-FS promoted water retention and improved wound healing process. Gross-morphology, histopathology and histomorphometry were employed to compare qualitative and quantitative difference of wound healing in treated group against controls. In experimental sites (HA-FS), re-epithelialization was completed by 14 days with neo-vascularization and deposition of wavy bundles of collagen in the treated sites. Rate of healing process was different in treated and untreated wounds and most striking difference was the appearance of appendages, sebaceous gland and hair follicle at some locations in HA-FS treated sites. Therefore, HA with fibrin can create an effective wound care matrix which promotes water retention and wound healing potential. (C) 2011 The International Association for Biologicals.

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 (NDL India) pilot 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. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, 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. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India 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 respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
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 (NDL India) pilot project.
