|Abstract||Cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) has long been regarded as a second messenger and a regulator of human keratinocyte proliferation. To explore more effective wound management, dibutyryl cyclic adenosine monophosphate (DBcAMP), a lipophilic analog of cAMP was incorporated into an in situ-forming hydrogel wound dressing based on periodate-oxidized alginate and gelatin. In vitro release of DBcAMP from the matrix into phosphate buffered saline was slow and increased with time. Only 50-60% of the compound was released into the medium over a period of 2 days suggestive of a sustained release into the wound bed over a period of few days. The wound-healing efficacy of the DBcAMP-incorporated dressing was evaluated on experimental full-thickness wounds in a rat model. It was found that dressing promoted wound healing leading to complete re-epithelialization of wounds within 10 days, whereas control wounds took 15 days for complete re-epithelialization. Data obtained in this Study showed that the presence of DBcAMP accelerated healing and re-epithelialization of full-thickness wounds. (c) 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.|

|Educational Framework||Medical Council of India (MCI)|
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.
