Agricultural policies, new technologies and healthy food security

The good food and its ensured availability has been a point of contention for different countries and designing of agricultural policies for sustainable growth with plentiful availability of food for all have been in core of different governments policies throughout the world. Along that, with the passing era, new technologies has been introduced to ease the production as well as storage of food. This has impacted the working of farmers and their earnings.

The journal ‘Integrated Journal of Social Sciences‘ has opened up a new special issue to cover the understanding of different agricultural policies adopted in different countries and their impact on food security (and farmers’ earnings) and related understandings. The researchers and academic fraternity is invited to publish their research and review articles related to theme of special issue including (though not limited to):

  • Different agricultural policies adopted by different countries and impact thereof.
  • Other policies with impact on food availability (Policies, Politics, and Law for food).
  • Agriculture, Farmer and Food: History, Contemporary issues
  • New technologies and methods for growing, processing and preserving the food.
  • Relevance of farmers protest (Current Indian Farmers protest and other historical protests world over and their outcomes)
  • Culture, community, history, modernization
  • Growing of healthy food (pesticide free) nutrition rich food and impact on health (disease free life) nutritional health.
  • Different geographies and climate impact on crops and corresponding understandings

The present study aimed to investigated the antiproliferative potential of Mosinone-A on cell proliferation, apoptosis and cell cycle proteins during 7, 12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) induced hamster buccal pouch (HBP) carcinogenesis. A total number of 40 golden Syrian hamsters were randomized into 4 groups of 10 animals in each. Group I animals were served as untreated control. Groups II and III animals were painted with 0.5% DMBA in liquid paraffin three times per week for 14 weeks on the left buccal pouches. Group III animals were orally administered with Mosinone-A (2 mg kg-1 b.wt) starting one week before the exposure to the carcinogen and continued on days alternate to DMBA painting, until the sacrification of the animals. Groups IV animals were received Mosinone-A alone throughout the experimental period. Topical application of DMBA for 14 weeks induced buccal pouch carcinomas associated with increased expression of Cox-2, P21, iNos and SIAT1 whereas decreased expression of Bax, Cleaved caspase-9, P12DOC-1, p16INK4A and p15INK4B. Oral administration of Mosinone-A significantly inhibited the development of HBP carcinomas as revealed by decreased expression of Cox-2, P21, iNos and  SIAT1 and over expression  Bax, Cleaved caspase-9, P12DOC-1, p16INK4A and  p15INK4B. The result of the present study indicates that Mosinone-A can exerts protective effects against DMBA induced buccal pouch carcinogenesis by inhibiting cell proliferation and inducing differentiation and apoptosis.
