European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2022, Volume 9, Issue 2, Pages 1471-1474

Background: The mortality rate covid-19 is still not understood completely but was reported around five percent worldwide. This study puts in an effort to find one such difference if any between the survivors when compared to the non-survivors. This study makes an effort to find the acute inflammatory proteins in the survivors in comparison with the non-survivors.
Aims and Objectives: To study the acute inflammatory proteins levels and their significance in Covid-19.
Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective study done in the Department of Medicine, Dr. Chandramma Dayanand Sagar Institute of Medical Education and Research, Bangalore.
Results: There is a significant difference in the levels of acute inflammatory protein levels in survivors when compared to that of non-survivors.
Conclusion: This study successfully portrays the importance of acute inflammatory protein levels in understanding the progression of the disease.

European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2021, Volume 8, Issue 4, Pages 3449-3463

In modern era, the use of plastic product in different sector of industry is increasing day by day.Plastic waste management and recycling became a serious global issue as it affects living beings from all the ecosystems.Their disperse disposal in land andwater arouses threats for human, wildlife and aqua life. Researches have been carried out on plastic degradation to find solutionto overcome these environmental hazards. Biodegradation emerges as one of the promising solution to manage theplastic waste which could not be recycled. In biodegradation processmicroorganism and their enzymes are applied to degrade the syntheticand bio-based plastics. This review gives the current progresson biodegradation of various plastic polymers by microorganisms andenzymes to determine the extent of degradation.
