The present work deals with formulation of topical gels containing aqueous extract of P. acerifolium seeds and also evaluation of prepared gels against some Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The antibacterial activity of various P. acerifolium seed extracts was measured through determining minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) by cube dilution method and zone of inhibition by disc diffusi...
STRUCTURAL DOCKING STUDIES AND BIOLOGICAL EVALUATION OF SOME NEWLY SYNTHESIZED SCHIFF BASE DERIVED QUINAZOLINONE DERIVATIVES
Present studies describe the synthesis of a series of Schiff base derived quinazolinone derivatives (6-14) with the aim to have better anti inflammatory agents. The prepared compounds were characterized using chemical and spectral (IR, NMR and Mass) studies. Pharmacological evaluation of the newly synthesized derivatives indicated that compounds 8, 11 and 14 exhibit significant anti-inflammatory...
Background: A cross sectional study, to determine the endemicity, by systematic investigations in institutional settings to assess the prevalence of diseases. Methods: The study was conducted by observational method over a period of seven months regarding the prevalence of particular disease and disease with co-morbidities. Among the several diseases of distinct clinical spectrum, various risk f...
APPROACHES TO DEVELOPMENT OF SOLID – SELF MICRON EMULSIFYING DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM: FORMULATION TECHNIQUES AND DOSAGE FORMS: A REVIEW
Solubility is one of the most important parameter to achieve desired concentration of drug in systemic circulation for therapeutic response. As a consequence of modern drug discovery techniques, there has been a steady increase in the number of new pharmacologically active lipophilic compounds that are poorly water soluble. It is a great challenge for pharmaceutical scientist to convert those mole...

(Cyperaceae) is an indigenous medicinal plant used for the treatment of pain, inflammation, diarrhoea, tumours, wounds and as Antidiabetic Anticonvulsant, Antimicrobial, Antiallergic, Antioxidant and Antiarthritic. The methanolic extract of rhizome was subjected to anti-inflammatory activity using experimental animal model of carrageenan induced paw edema in the presence of ...
A STUDY ON THE PREVALENCE AND MACROBIOTIC APPROACH OF CANCER AMONG THE MALE TRIBAL POPULATION OF SHILLON
Incidence of cancer in northeast is the highest in India. Nutrition intervention plays a vital role in the management of postponement of cancer. Objectives: To find out the prevalence rate of different types of cancer among the selected male tribal population of Shillong and dietary habits of these tribes the present study was carried out. Methods: Three hospitals from the city of Shillong was fol...
Background: The hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis in asthmatic patients is influenced by many factors. Stress, cytokines and exogenous corticosteroids play an important role in regulating the HPA axis and thus affecting the adreno corticotrophic hormone (ACTH) and cortisol levels among these patients. It is well accepted that the HPA axis represents a major immune-regulatory system that pl...
This study investigated the antidiabetic activity of the aqueous extract of the leaves of Ageratum conyzoides. Streptozotocin induced hyperglycemia male adult albino rats were used to study the antidiabetic effect of Ageratum conyzoides aqueous extract (at doses of 100, 200 and 300 mg/kg respectively). The diabetic rats were housed in metabolic cages, for the whole period of the experiment. Body w...
