Effect of Terminalia arjuna bark extract on transient focal cerebral ischemia induced neural damage and behaviour deficits in Sprague dawley rats Stroke is a global socio-economic disease and places a huge burden on patients, families and wider society (Warlow et al., 2003). It is the second leading cause for death next to ischemic heart disease & leading cause of disability in the world (WHO 2012, Lozano et al., 2012). Age related risk for stroke becomes higher in India like developed countries with increasing average lifespan of the individual (Donnan et al., 2008).

Introduction The impact of modernization, globalization and over competitiveness has been very complex in many dimensions. Human beings have embellished their lives through medical and electronic advances on the one hand and created uncertainty, lethargy and disconnectedness on the other. In the realm of health both physical and mental the most measurable signs have been in terms of escalating hypertension and stress.

The North American Smallpox Epidemic (1775-82) A report on the nature of losses and the complex set of factors that caused the disaster, based on our understanding of the concepts of risk and vulnerability. Historical perspectives and introduction The smallpox epidemic that devastated North America from 1775-82 is one of the worst cases of disease outbreaks that the world has ever experienced.
