A simple and precise method was developed for the assay of azelnidipine from tablet formulation. The solvent system and wavelength were optimized in order to maximize the sensitivity of the proposed method, azelnidipine shows the maximum absorbance at 257 nm. The separation was achieved on HPLC binary gradient system equipped with HPLC 3000 series. The mobile phase was prepared with Methanol: Wate...
ROLE OF LABETALOL AND METHYLDOPA IN NEWLY DIAGNOSED MILD HYPERTENSION IN PREGNANCY: A PROSPECTIVE DRUG COMPARATIVE STUDY IN A RURAL TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL IN INDIA
Aim: Labetalol is useful in severe hypertension (HT) in pregnancy; however, there was a need to define its role in mild HT in pregnancy. The present study was done to evaluate efficacy of labetalol in mild HT in pregnancy, compare it with that of methyldopa, and compare the tolerability of methyldopa and labetalol in patients. Methods: A prospective drug comparative study was conducted for one yea...
This work involves synthesis of pyrazolyl thiazine derivatives from different chalcones [1(a-b)] synthesized from substituted acetophenones and different aromatic aldehydes in basic medium by Claisen-Schmidt reaction. These chalcones [1(a-b)] on condensation with different hydrazides [2(a-b)] and isothiocyanates [3(a-b)] when irradiated with microwaves (20%, 140watts) in scientific microwave o...
FERTILITY EFFECT OF CYCAS CIRCINALIS AND IONIDIUM SUFFRUTICOSUM IN ALCOHOL INDUCED STERILITY OF MALE WISTAR RATS – AN HISTOMORPHOMETRIC STUDY
Alcohol abuse is well known to impair reproductive performances due to impaired testosterone production and testicular atrophy. Many natural nontoxic herbs were found to enhance the fertility in male. The study is done to evaluate the effect of Cycas circinalis (Cc) and Ionidium suffruticosum (Is) in improving the fertility of alcohol induced sterile male albino rats. A total of 30 healthy young m...

COMPARATIVE STUDY OF ANTIULCER ACTIVITY OF METHANOLIC EXTRACTS OF WATTAKAKA VOLUBILIS (LINN.F.) STAF AND TABEBUIA ROSEA (BERTOL.) DC IN RATS
The aim of this study was to compare the antiulcer activity of methanolic extracts of Wattakaka volubilis (Linn.f.) Staf and Tabebuia rosea (Bertol.) DC in rats. The anti-ulcer effect was evaluated using Anti secretary model (chemical induced pylorus ligation). Ranitidine were used as standard drugs for ulcer studies. The extracts were administered orally at 500 mg/kg. The result of the present st...
Lithiasis is the process of stone formation in the kidney, bladder, and/or urethra. Herbal drugs are reported to be effective in the treatment of urolithiasis with no side effects. Grewia asiatica is a plant commonly used as a traditional herbal medicine and possesses the wide range of pharmacological applications. The present study investigated the antilithiatic activity of an ethanolic leaf extr...
AMELIORATIVE EFFECT OF HELIX ASPERSA CRUDE EXTRACT AGAINST COLONIC DAMAGES INDUCED BY HYPERHOMOCYSTEINEMIA IN RATS
The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of Helix aspersa crude extract on colonic injury resulting from hyperhomocysteinemia induced by feeding rats high methionine diet. Wistar albino rats (200-250g) were divided into four groups. Hyperhomocysteinemia (Hhcy) was induced by methionine treatment (1g/kg/day) for 15 days. M group received only Methionine, MH and MP received Methionine a...
The confined reports on Rhododendron arboreum Sm spp. nilagiricum (Zenker) Tagg stimulated to examine the bioactive compounds and the antimicrobial activity of its flower and bark extracts against medically critical human pathogenic microbes, apart from the availability of several reports on its main species R. arboreum. The microbial strains used for the study were four bacterial (Streptococcus p...
