Ph.D. Research Work
Thesis Topic: “Study of neutrophil chemotactic peptide in sera of Japanese encephalitis patients”.
Work done in Department of Microbiology, King Georges’ Medical University, Lucknow, under able guidance of Prof. Asha Mathur, DCP,MD, FNA, FASc, FAMS, FNASc, FRC (Path), FTWAS (Prof. & Head, Dept. of Gen. Path. & Microbiol., Saraswati Dental College & Hospitals, Lucknow; Ex-Head, Dept. of Microbiology & Bacteriology, K.G.M.C.; Emeritus Scientist, CDRI, Lucknow).
Ph.D. Work Done: Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV), a viral zoonotic infection of central nervous system, initiates an inflammatory response in humans. The study showed the production of a chemotactic cytokine in response to JEV peripheral blood monocytes in vitro as well as in vivo. The cytokine was responsible for various pathogenic effects in blood brain barrier. The presence of cytokine was shown in JEV confirmed patients. An ELISA system was developed for its determination in clinical samples. In another study, the presence of cytokine IL-8 was also shown during acute phase in JE-confirmed patients.
