FREQUENCY OF MILD AND SEVERE DEPRESSION CONSIDERING THE GENDER AND BLOOD GROUPS AMONG MEDICAL STUDENTS OF INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY (IMTU), DAR ES SALAAM
Objective: Study to elucidate the relation between depression, gender and blood groups. Methods: The study was prepared on 279 medical students of IMTU, who have spent more than four months in the medical school. A Performa for testing depression scale was given to the students. Blood groups and gender were analyzed. Results: It was evident that few blood groups like A and O shown significan...
The aim of the study was to develop sustained release matrix tablet of Losartan potassium and to evaluate its efficacy in reducing hypertension. In this experiment, sustained release matrix tablets were prepared by direct compression method and Methocel K4M CR and Methocel K100M CR were used as polymer. The evaluation involves three stages: the micromeritic properties evaluation of powder blend, p...
In this investigation, Miconazole Nitrate topical gels were designed by employing various bioadhesive polymers like polyacrylates (carbopol 940), cellulose derivatives (hydroxyl propyl methyl cellulose and sodium carboxy methyl cellulose) and natural polymers (sodium alginate) alone and in combination. The prepared gels were also characterized for different parameters like visual appearance, pH, c...
The objective of this study was to evaluate the possible antimicrobial properties of water, methanol, chloroform and Petroleum ether extracts of leaves of different Indian medicinal plants including Mangifera indica Linn, Ixora parviflora Vahl, Psydium guajava Linn, Calotropis procera Ait. The extracts were investigated individually for in vitro antibacterial activity by cup plate (well diffusion)...
ANTITUMOR POTENTIAL OF STANDARDIZED EXTRACT FROM AEGLE MARMELOS ROOT ON DALTON’S LYMPHOMA INDUCED MICE MODEL
The antitumor property of the successive, standardized methanolic (MeOH) extract of Aegle marmelos roots (MAM) was investigated in Dalton’s ascites lymphoma mice model. Materials and methods: Flavonoid present in MAM was quantitatively estimated using high performance thin layer chromatography. MAM (100, 300 mg/kg) was administered orally for 15 days to assess antitumor activity. The tumor was i...

The study was conducted among the adolescents’ aged from16-18 years in regions of Guntur. The volunteers are allowed to fill their informed consent to be a part of the study. The questionnaire was distributed to all the vo...
The ligands bis-(benzimidazolyl)pyridine (BBIP) and bis-(benzimidazolyl)benzene (BBIB) have been used to synthesize Copper(II) complexes [Cu(BBIP)2]Cl2 and [Cu(BBIB)2]Cl2 respectively. The complexes are characterized by analytical and spectral (FTIR, 1H NMR and electronic) techniques. IR spectra of complexes show that the tertiary nitrogens in the ligand are involved in the co-ordination to the me...
The study aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of Amoxicillin/Clavulanate 625 mg and Amoxicillin/Clavulanate 1 gram in chronic bronchitis patients. Chronic bronchitis, a type of COPD defined by a productive cough that lasts for 3 months or more for at least 2 years, other symptoms include wheezing and breathlessness, upon exertion. It is caused by recurring irritation to the epithelium of bronc...
Aim and objective: To isolate the natural herbal binding agent from Eulophia ochreata Lindl. and study its evaluation properties using diclofenac as a model drug. Principle: Binders confer structural strength required by tablets during processing, handling, packaging and transportation. A number of plant mucilage, gums/hydrocolloids have been used as binding agents, suspending or emulsifying ag...
Objective: To explore the effect of nimodipine on nociception and on opioid induced antinociception in rats by using tail-flick method. Method: Sixty albino rats were used for the study. Tail-flick method was used to induce nociception in rats. Analgesic effect of nimodipine was evaluated by using three graded doses (200mcg/kg, 400mcg/kg and 800mcg/kg). To study the effect of nimodipine on opioid ...
