Stroke remains world’s second leading cause of mortality; and globally most frequent cause of long-lasting disabilities. The ischaemic pathophysiologic cascade leading to neuronal damage consists of peri-infarct depolarization, excitotoxicity, inflammation, oxidative stress, and apoptosis. Despite plethora of experimental evidences and advancement into the development of treatments, clinical tre...
Fertility control is an issue of global challenge. Researchers are trying to develop male herbal contraceptives from natural sources. Jussiaea repens L (JR) is such an herb which is reported to have non toxic antigonadal activity in male rats. The present study has designed to evaluate whether crude queous extract of JR affects the DNA integrity of spermatozoa and also to study whether its actions...
As described by the world health organization (WHO), depression is the most common and serious disorder leading to suicide. Numbers of synthetic drugs are available for the treatment of this fatal disease, but are associated with serious complications. A wide diversity of animal models has been used to examine antidepressant activity. These range from relatively simple models sensitive to acute tr...
A new RP-HPLC method was developed for Mephenesin (MEP) and Ibuprofen (IBU) and validated as per ICH guidelines. Good chromatographic separation of Mephenesin and Ibuprofen was achieved by using Agilent C18 column (150mm×4.6mm, 3.2µ p.s). The system was operated at ambient temperature using a mobile phase consisting of Acetonitrile, 0.01M potassium dihydrogen phosphate pH 3.0 (60:40 v/v) isocrat...
SIMULTANEOUS DETERMINATION TRACE LEVELS OF VITAMIN B1 AND VITAMIN B9 IN HUMAN SAMPLES BY ULTRASOUND-ASSISTED DISPERSIVE LIQUID-LIQUID MICROEXTRACTION COUPLED WITH HPLC-UV
Ultrasound-assisted dispersive liquid-liquid micro extraction (UA-DLLME) was proposed for simultaneous determination of trace levels of Vitamin B1 (thiamine) and Vitamin B9 (folic acid) in the human urine and serum samples. High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) coupled with chemometrics method was employed to analysis the extraxtants. Objective: The optimal conditions of the extraction rec...
Background: Antimicrobials are used for bacterial infections & has a great benefits in health related problems of human life. The main objectives of medicinal chemistry is synthesising and producing newer molecules having a valuable significant therapeutic action. Quinolones has a considerable scientific and clinical interest since their discovery. Objective: Quinolones class of drugs are usef...
Blood pressure (BP) is one of the major prognostic indicators in cardiovascular patients and in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Accurate measurement of BP is important to classify an individual to confirm BP related risk and to continue treatment. The limitations of conventional technique can be surpassed by ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM). ABPM strengthens its superiority ...
SPECTROSCOPIC CHARACTERISATION AND SYNTHESIS OF Cu(II) AND Ni(II) COMPLEXES WITH NITROGEN AND SULPHUR DONOR BIDENTATE SCHIFF’S BASE LIGAND
The complexes of Cu(II) and Ni(II) having the general composition ML2X2 (where L= 2-benzoylpyridine thiosemicarbazone, M=Ni(II),Cu(II), and X=Cl-, NO3-,SO42-, OAc-) have been synthesised and were characterised by IR, elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility, UV-Vis, conductivity, mass spectrometry and EPR spectral studies. The IR spectral data indicates that the ligand behave as a bidentate l...
IN-VITRO ANTIFUNGAL SUSCEPTIBILITY REVEALS OCCURRENCE OF AZOLE AND ALLYLAMINE RESISTANCE AMONG CLINICAL ISOLATES OF CANDIDA ALBICANS AND CANDIDA NON ALBICANS FROM CENTRAL INDIA
Background: Drug resistance among Candida species constitutes the most significant problem in the treatment of Candidiasis.Systematic studies on antifungal drug susceptibility which may be useful in deciding clinical strategies are not routinely done in India and other developing countries. Objective: Aim of this study was testing sensitivity of clinical isolates of Candida albicans and non albica...
Aim: The study was done to evaluate the antibacterial and antifungal activity of the leaves of Colocasia esculenta Linn. Materials and Methods: Fresh tender leaves of C.esculenta collected, air-dried at room temperature, grounded to a fine powder and extracted with ethanol. The antibacterial and antifungal activity of C.esculenta compared to standard antibiotics was assessed by disc diffusion meth...
