Hypothyroidism is a common disorder of endocrine system in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. The most common cause of hypothyroidism is inflammation of the thyroid gland, which damages the gland’s cells. It can affect growth, cellular processes and many other body functions. As more damage accumulates, the risk of Hypothyroidism increases. In order to make an impac...
COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF PATIENT’S ACCEPTABILITY BETWEEN POLYETHER AND NON – EUGENOL BASED PERIODONTAL DRESSINGS – A RANDOMISED CONTROL CLINICAL TRIAL
Periodontal dressings were widely used after flap surgery to protect the surgical site since long. This study compared polyether urethane dimethacrylate resin based Barricaid dressing and non-eugenol based periodontal dressings in the perspective of pain, esthetics and patient acceptance using a randomized split-mouth study design. Fifteen patients coming to the Department of Periodontics at ITS D...
EFFECT OF METFORMIN AND ROSUVASTATIN ON ERYTHROCYTES OF PATIENTS WITH SICKLE CELL DISEASE: AN IN-VITRO STUDY
Objectives: Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a common hereditary blood disease with a progressive clinical course and multiple end organs damage. Due to its intercalated pathophysiology, several trials have been conducted targeting its pathophysiology in an attempt to modify the clinical course and minimize complications. Metformin and rosuvastatin are known to have pleiotropic effects such as antioxi...
Clerodendrum phlomidis is a shrub common in India and Sri Lanka. It is one of the highly traded medicinal plants from tropical forests, as the leaves and roots are used in folk-lore, Ayurveda, Siddha and Unnani medicines. In this study preliminary phytochemical screening, cytotoxic, antioxidant and GC - MS study of leaf of C. phlomidis was evaluated. Successive extraction of the leaf of C. phlomid...
ANTIDIABETIC ACTIVITY OF METHANOLIC LEAVES EXTRACTS OF TRANSFORMED SOYBEAN IN 3T3-L1 PRE-ADIPOCYTES CELL LINE
The present study was initiated to quantify the Isoflavones content that accumulated in soybean transgenics with RnPPARγ gene by using high performance liquid chromatography. The effects of methanolic leaves extract of transformed soybean in 3T3-L1 adipocyte cell line. The RnPPARγ transgenic soybean variety JS335 was developed and transgenics were confirmed by PCR and Southern blot techniques. T...
Tuberculosis caused by multidrug-resistant (MDR) and extensively drug-resistant (XDR) Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) strains is a growing problem in many countries. The availability of the complete nucleotide sequences of several MTB genomes allows to use the comparative genomics as a tool to study the relationships of strains and differences in their evolutionary history including acquisition o...

Lopinavir (LPV) is potent and poorly bioavailable molecule which is frequently administered protease inhibitors in the treatment of the HIV. Solid Lipid Nanoparticles (SLNs) of LPV were prepared using High Speed Homogenization. LPV were successfully encapsulated in the mixture of Glyceryl Behenate and Glyceryl monostearate. Poloxamer 188 was used as a surfactant for the preparation of the SLNs. Fo...
FORMULATION AND IN VITRO EVALAUATION OF TABLET CONTAINING GLICLAZIDE NANOCRYSTALS FOR SOLUBILITY AND DISSOLUTION ENHANCEMENT USING SOLUPLUS
Poor aqueous solubility is the main problem in development of effective formulation which affects stability and bioavailability of drug formulation. So there is need of systematic formulation approach to make such poorly soluble drugs bioavailable. In the present investigation attempt has been made to investigate the effect of soluplus on solubility of gliclazide by preparing its nanocrystals. Nan...
ANTIMICROBIAL POTENTIAL OF CRUDE EXTRACTS AND ISOLATES OF ROOTS OF MIMOSA PUDICA LINN. COLLECTED FROM THE LOCALITY OF MOHUDA ENVIRON, GANJAM, ODISHA
A complete documentation of the ethno-biological information presently existing among the diverse communities is needed at an earliest so as to restore the traditional medicinal knowledge. Research to find out scientific evidence for claims by tribal healers on Indian herbs has been intensified as being evidenced from many cited literatures. Once these local ethno medical preparations are scien...
