THE NON-ENZYMATIC ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES OF FICUS CARICA L. SUBSP. CARICA LEAVES AND ITS ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITIES AGAINST FOOD PATHOGENS
The aim of this work was to investigate of the antimicrobial and antioxidant potentials of methanol extracts from Ficus carica. Methanol extracts were screened for antimicrobial activity against different species of Gram positive andGram negative bacteria and one yeast. The methanol extract of Ficus carica showed maximum inhibition zone of 10 mm against Listeria monocytogenes. In addition to, the ...
CROCUS SATIVUS AND NYCTANTHES ARBORTRISTIS EXTRACT MODULATES ANTI-INFLAMMATORY CYTOKINE IN EXPERIMENTAL ARTHRITIS
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease, affecting 1-2% population worldwide. RA is common among the women in comparison to men. The disease mostly affects the age group 45 onwards, while juvenile cases are also reported. Exact pathogenesis of the disease is still a question. Studies indicate RA as an overabundance of pro-inflammatory cytokines, and inadequate anti-inflammatory...
The glutathione S-transferase (GST) isoenzyme superfamilies detoxify a wide-range of toxic chemicals and environmental substances are extensively expressed in mammalian tissues. Liver and pancreas are the sites where cytosolic Phase I and phase II biotransformation GSTs enzymes have characteristic expression. GSTs play a key role in the deactivation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the metabol...
Depression is a well-defined mood disorder which is characterized by state of disposition of mind and dislike or antipathy to activity that can affect an individual’s thoughts, demeanor, sense of emotional touch and physical well- being. Depressed people may feel mournful, troubled, uneasy in mind, meaningless, helpless and unworthy, experiencing as if having committed an offence. They are easil...
ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES OF LEAF EXTRACTS OF SOME COMMON BETEL VARIETIES (PIPER BETLE L.) AVAILABLE IN ODISHA
Natural antioxidants play an important role in the prevention of many age-related diseases and promotion of health. Among natural antioxidants from plants, flavonoids and other phenolic compounds are potent antioxidants and chelating agents. Betel (Piper betle) is the leaf of a vine belonging to the family Piperaceae, which also includes pepper and kava. It is valued both as mild stimulant and ap...
PERFORMANCE OF ASSOCIATION RULES FOR DENGUE VIRUS TYPE1 AMINO ACIDS USING AN INTEGRATION OF TRANSACTION REDUCTION AND RANDOM SAMPLING (TRRS) ALGORITHM
Association rule mining is the recent research area in data mining. Frequent Itemset Mining techniques is one of the prominent techniques in pattern mining. In this system frequent itemset mining is used to find the frequent amino acids patterns in Dengue Virus Type1 data set. This system uses an integration of Transaction Reduction and Random Sampling (TRRS) approach to identify the frequent patt...
Pharmaceutical impurities are the organic and inorganic unwanted chemicals which are found in active pharmaceutical ingredient after synthesis or develop during formulation development. These impurities severely affect the safety and efficacy of developed pharmaceutical product. Impurity profiling detects and quantifies the levels of organic and inorganic impurities and thereby helps in better mon...
There has been a significant increase in the generation of MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) in India over the last few decades. The degradation of persistent organic pollutant using advanced oxidation processes with sunlight as energy source have a great advantage at lower costs. Pallikaranai wetland is a freshwater marsh in the city of Chennai, India. Pallikaranai marshland is the only surviving wetla...
ENHANCEMENT OF DISSOLUTION AND BIOAVAILABILITY OF EZETIMIBE BY SPRAY DRIED MICROPARTICLES USING HP-β- CYCLODEXTRIN POLYMER
Objective: Enhancement of oral bioavailability of poorly water soluble drugs is the most challenging aspects of drug development. It is very important to find appropriate formulation approaches to improve the aqueous solubility and bioavailability of poorly aqueous soluble drugs. Ezetimibe is a new lipid lowering agent in the management of hyper-cholesterolemia. The drug is water-insoluble, lipoph...
VALIDATION OF CLEANING PROCEDURE FOR ELIMINATION OF OFLOXACIN AND METRONIDAZOLE BENZOATE FROM MIXING EQUIPMENT BY USING UV SPECTROSCOPY
This research manuscript describes simple, sensitive, accurate, precise and repeatable UV spectroscopic method for the simultaneous determination of Metronidazole (MET) and Ofloxacin (OFL) in suspension dosage form). Metronidazole has absorbance maxima at 318.0 nm and Ofloxacin has absorbance maxima at 294 nm in Methanol and Water (50:50) solvent. The linearity was obtained in the concentration ra...
