Hi Solars,

This is a poster given at the Biohorizon 2004 (6th National Symposium
on Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnology) conference.  The
proceedings contain a one-page writeup of the posters, most likely
including the one you need (full citation is below).

Here is information on the conveners of the conference, who should be
able to send you a copy of this paper:
Pravin Kumar - Convener, Biohorizon 2004 
Gaurav Backliwal - Overall Co-ordinator, Biohorizon 2004  
Department of Biochemical Engg. & Biotechnology  E-mail: 
Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi    
Hauz Khas, New Delhi - 110016, India   
Fax: 91-11-26582282   
Phone: 91-11-26596160   
Mobile: 91 - 9810250405 

The authors of the poster in question are Kranti Mohapatra, Nazifa
Shakla, Sheilpa Saklani.  The title is Noscapine, an opium alkaloid,
implications on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, and it was poster number
PMM-13.  Your best bet to get the paper is by contacting the conveners
(above) and asking for it from them.  I have not been able to find a
copy of the Proceedings in the US or UK, which is not surprising as it
appears to be regularly distributed to Indian universities & companies
but not outside of India.

Please let me know if I can help you further on this or other
questions.  If you would like more references to studies involving
noscapine I can help with that.

As you can see, I provided the link to the website of Biohorizon - and
I was offering $36 for the answer to this question only after having
been unsuccessful myself in obtaining the results.

The contcat details which you have given do not appear to be
reachable, that is why I was looking for a way to contact the authors
directly. You have not helped with taht at all.

I'm very sorry.  The authors do not appear to be reachable by any
means that I can discover online.  I have put in an email to the
editors to see if they can help.  It may be that they can send the
content of the paper as well since (as I mentioned in the answer),
they have the paper in their proceedings.  Please stay tuned while I
try to clarify.  LKT
