Tropospheric ozone (O ) being phytotoxic impacts global food security. Present study investigated yield responses and kernel quality traits of two maize cultivars [DHM117: normal maize (NM)] and [HQPM1: quality protein maize (QPM)]. Cultivars were exposed to two doses of elevated O viz. NFC+15 and NFC+30 ppb O above ambient level (NFC, non-filtered chambers) while filtered chambers served as control.

It is generally recognized that many favorable genes, including both nutritional value-related and stress-resistance genes, which were lost during domestication remain hidden in wild relatives. To unc...
Kernel row number is a fundamental component of maize (Zea mays) yield and an important target for maize breeding. The revolutionary transition from the two-rowed teosinte to maize with increased kern...
High temperature is a common stress, which influences the growth and reproduction of plants. Maize is one of the most important crops all over the world. However, heat stress reduces significantly the...
Maize is used excessive pesticides during planting, storage and transportation to ensure its production, resulting in pesticides residues on maize that threaten human health. Plasma, compared with oth...
Quality protein maize (QPM) is nutritionally improved maize which has twice the amount of lysine and tryptophan than normal maize. The present study evaluated the effect of different proteins namely e...
The purpose of this study is to determine how well the body absorbs the carotenoid beta-cryptoxanthin (BCX) from a type of corn that has been naturally bred (not genetically engineered) to...
The purpose of this intervention study is to assess the feasibility and acceptability of soy-fiber-maize versus soy-maize complementary foods on bowel movement frequency, transit time, gro...
The evaluation of protein quality has been identified as the top priority question by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. However, the current available met...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a high-quality protein food supplement will help HIV-positive patients maintain, and possibly gain, muscle mass. Many HIV-positive patien...
Background: Malnutrition is frequently occurring in sick patients and is associated with a higher morbidity and mortality. Muscle dysfunction is a common finding in malnutrition which lead...
The attainment or process of attaining a new level of performance or quality.
Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. The concept includes the assessment or evaluation of the quality of care; identification of problems or shortcomings in the delivery of care; designing activities to overcome these deficiencies; and follow-up monitoring to ensure effectiveness of corrective steps.
A system for verifying and maintaining a desired level of quality in a product or process by careful planning, use of proper equipment, continued inspection, and corrective action as required. (Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)
The application of industrial management practice to systematically maintain and improve organization-wide performance. Effectiveness and success are determined and assessed by quantitative quality measures.
Norms, criteria, standards, and other direct qualitative and quantitative measures used in determining the quality of health care.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. It is usually of plant or animal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism ...
