IMMUNOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR DETECTION OF CHLAMYDIA TRACHOMATIS AMONG WOMEN AT REPRODUCTIVE AGE ATTENDING OMDURMAN MATERNITY HOSPITAL
Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted disease. Over 100 million men and women worldwide are infected with Chlamydia at any point in time. The aim of this study to detect the presence of C. trachomatis antibodies and antigen among women on the reproductive age and to study the relationship between the presence of C. trachomatis and age, abortion and ectopic pregnan...
Five medicinal plants used in the traditional medicine of India, were selected for studying their immunomodulatory potential through the activation of macrophages, individually and in synergism. The plants were Boswellia serrata Roxb., Curcuma longa L., Glycyrrhiza glabra L., Tribulusterrestris L., and Tylophora indica (Burm f.) Merr. In the present study, strong stimulation of antigen specific an...
SYNTHESIS AND PHARMACOLOGICAL EVALUATION OF 2-SUBSTITUTED BENZOTHIAZOLE DITHIOMIDOCARBONATE DERIVATIVES
A series of novel 2- substituted benzothiazole dithiomidocarbonate derivatives were synthesized by the reaction of 2-amino benzothiazole with various halides. The test compounds were screened for their antimicrobial activity (antibacterial and antifungal) by disc diffusion method and the results of the microbial activity indicates that the test compounds exhibited varying degree of antimicrobial a...
Enteric coating material that, was synthesized in the laboratory and applied to a tablet and also drug release profile was investigated. A polymeric material - Phthalic acid propane-1,2 diol-glycerol co-polyester (PPGC) was synthesized from phthalic acid and propane-1, 2-diol with 5% glycerol of total weight as a crosslinking agent using Dean-Stark apparatus with Ferric Chloride as catalyst and o-...
According to FDA estimates about 10% of all drugs sold worldwide are counterfeit. Annual global trade in counterfeit goods is estimated to be $600 billion and growing. Counterfeit goods and drugs leads real threat to consumer safety as well as loss of companies brand value and profits. Till date, dosage authentication required forensic analysis in a laboratory which is a slow process involving app...
BIOEQUIVALENCE STUDY OF TWO BRANDS OF PHENYTOIN SODIUM 100MG FORMULATIONS IN HEALTHY ADULT MALE RABBITS
The objective of the study was to compare the bioavailability of a single oral 100 mg dose of two brands of phenytoin sodium formulations available in the Nepalese market. Formulation B was taken as test drug and compared with the innovator brand which was taken as reference standard. A randomized, two-way crossover study was done in six healthy adult male rabbits. All six rabbits received a singl...
Electrochemical behavior of rupatadine, an anti-allergic drug was studied at graphene modified glassy carbon electrode in Britton-Robinson buffer (pH 6.5) by square wave voltammetry (frequency, 50 Hz; amplitude, 0.02 V; step potential, 0.005 V) and cyclic voltammetry (scan rates, 20-100 mV/s) techniques. Cyclic voltammetry revealed the oxidation of rupatadine corresponding to N-dealkylation which ...
The usefulness of computational methods in drug design process is no longer a point of debate. The contributions from this evolving field have become apparent to both pharmaceutical scientists and academic biomedical researchers. As all the computational drug design are based on statistical and mathematical calculations there is strong evidences present for each and every step, thus research by ch...
SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF BIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE COMPOUND E-2-((2-AMINO PYRIDINE-3-YL) METHYLENE AMINO) ETHANE THIOL AND ITS METAL COMPLEXES
A new physiologically active compound E-2-((2-amino pyridine-3-yl) methylene amino)ethane thiol derived from the condensation of Cysteamine and 2-amino Pyridine 3-Carbaldehyde was synthesized and characterized by spectral techniques like IR, UV-Vis,1H- NMR, TG-DTA, ESR, CHN analyses. The complexes were further screened for their biological activity at Nishka labs and Nickel and Cobalt complexes we...
AIDS is syndrome of a set of disease, which is caused by HIV I and II. These viruses mainly destroy the lymphocytes which play a major role in our body immune system. Till now, there is not taken exactly prevention on this virus. Although some antiviral drugs are produced which make a preventive barrier out of the lymphocytes cells of patient’s blood but there is no way to kill the virus properl...
