The Allahabad University (AU) will not be able to confer the honorary degree of Doctor of literature (D.Litt.) on noted lyricist and writer Gulzar since the Union Ministry of Education has not yet given the permission.

The convocation will take place on Monday.

Governor Anandiben Patel, who is the Director of AU, would not be attending the function due to a prior commitment.

According to AU Public Relation Officer, Jaya Kapoor, "We have still not received the approval of the Union Ministry of Education for conferring the honorary degree of D.Litt on Gulzar and hence, he would not be attending the convocation ceremony."

The decision to confer an honorary degree to Gulzar was taken by the varsity's Academic and the Executive Council. Following this, a proposal was prepared and sent to the Union Ministry of Education.

However, the Ministry did not respond to the proposal.

The Union Minister for Education, Dharmendra Pradhan, will be the chief guest at the convocation function.

A total of 263 medals would be awarded to meritorious students and 550 students would be awarded with Ph.D degrees in the event for academic sessions 2018-19 and 2019-20. (IANS/JB)

The researchers exposed saliva samples from Covid-19 patients to the ACE2 gum and found that levels of viral RNA fell so dramatically to be almost undetectable.

A chewing gum laced with a plant-grown protein serves as a "trap" for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, reducing viral load in saliva and potentially tamping down transmission, finds a new study.

The researchers exposed saliva samples from Covid-19 patients to the ACE2 gum and found that levels of viral RNA fell so dramatically to be almost undetectable, indicates the study published in the journal Molecular Therapy.

"SARS-CoV-2 replicates in the salivary glands, and we know that when someone d sneezes, coughs, or speaks some of that virus can be expelled and reach others," said researcher Henry Daniell from the University of Pennsylvania in the US.

"This gum offers an opportunity to neutralise the virus in the saliva, giving us a simple way to possibly cut down on a source of disease transmission," Daniell added.

To test the chewing gum, the team grew angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) in plants, paired with another compound that enables the protein to cross mucosal barriers and facilitates binding, and incorporated the resulting plant material into cinnamon-flavoured gum tablets.
