|Abstract||Sobatum, the active fraction of the plant Solanum trilobatum was obtained from the petroleum ether/ethyl acetate (75:25) extractable portion. Sobatum was proven to be an anticancer agent by in vitro and in vivo methods. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of Sobatum on radiation-induced toxicity in mice. In this assay there are three groups. Group I, the control group, received radiation alone, while groups II and III received Sobatum (100 and 200 mg/kg body weight, respectively) with radiation. Sobatum was administered 24 h before radiation and was continued for 4 alternate days. Body weight, food intake and blood parameters were determined before radiation and every 3 days after radiation for 17 days. The results indicated that there was significantly less body weight gain and food intake in the radiation alone-treated group compared to the Sobatum-treated group. The average leukocyte count and haemoglobin level of the Sobatum-treated group was considerably improved at the end of the experimental period. Hence, it can be concluded that Sobatum reduced the side-effects of radiation-induced toxicity and suggested that it could be used along with radiation 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.
