ROLE OF AUTO FLUORESCENCE IN APOPTOSIS ANALYSIS OF MCF-7 AND MDA-MB231 HUMAN BREAST CARCINOMAS TREATED WITH THYMOQUINONE
Thymoquinone (TQ) is the major active component of black seed essential oil which possess encouraging effects against cancer cells. The antitumor activities of TQ were verified in breast carcinoma in-vitro and in-vivo. Most of the times, the cellular responses to apoptosis, after TQ treatment, are evaluate by flow cytometry using annexin V-propidium iodide (PI) staining method. Although flow cytom...
The aim of the present study was to formulate an osmotically controlled drug delivery system (O-CDDS) of Metformin hydrochloride to reduce the frequency of multiple dosing in non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus-II which is a lifelong disease. Metformin hydrochloride a BCS Class-III drug having a poor biological half-life of 6 h. O-CDDS of Metformin hydrochloride is a recent approach for the ze...
COMPARISON OF EFFICACY OF FERROUS CALCIUM CITRATE vs FERROUS ASCORBATE ON Hb STATUS IN ANAEMIC PREGNANT WOMEN
Objectives: To compare the efficacy of ferrous calcium citrate with ferrous ascorbate on Hb levels in anaemic pregnant women. Method: In this observational study, patients receiving ferrous ascorbate with elemental iron 100 mg were allocated to group A and those receiving ferrous calcium citrate with elemental iron 50 mg allocated to group B. After recording the baseline data, their Hb levels, s...
Objectives: In the present study, an effort was made to develop a novel pulsatile dosage form for the treatment of hypertension using Propranolol hydrochloride as a model drug. A time-delayed capsule was prepared by sealing the pellets inside the insoluble hard gelatin capsule body with an erodible hydrogel plug. Methods: The pellets were prepared by the Fluidized Bed Wurster (bottom spray) techni...
ACETYLCHOLINESTERASE INHIBITORY ACTIVITY OF DOREMA AMMONIACUM GUM EXTRACTS AND MOLECULAR DOCKING STUDIES
Ammoniacum gum is traditionally used as an expectorant, stimulant, antispasmodic, catarrh, asthma, chronic bronchitis, and enlargement of liver and spleen in Medicine. The Soxhlet extraction of the oleo gum resin of D. ammoniacum was carried out with organic solvents including hexane, dichloromethane, chloroform, ethyl acetate, and methanol. The screening of the anti-alzheimer activity of the extr...
CHARACTERISTIC AND OPTIMIZED USE OF BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS FROM GLORIOSA SUPERBA AND ALBIZIA AMARA WITH APOPTOTIC EFFECT ON HEPATIC AND SQUAMOUS SKIN CARCINOMA
Background: Cancer is still a dreadful disease, the treatment ranges with difficulties like strong side effects, shortage of donor and organs. In relation, plants and its chemical properties will provide an efficient source in the innocuous treatment for cancers. Objectives: To identify and isolate bioactive compounds from Gloriosa superba tubers and Albizia amara leaves with anti-cancer property ...
Carvedilol is used for hypertension, angina pectoris and in symptomatic heart failure. It has a short half life of 2h and bioavailability of 25%. Therefore the present investigation is concerned with the development of the buco-mucoadhesive films, which were designed to prolong the buccal residence time, to increase penetration through buccal mucosa and thus increase the bioavailability and its ha...
ISOLATION AND SCREENING OF CYANOBACTERIAL CULTURES FROM BILASPUR DISTRICT OF CHHATTISGARH: EXTRACTION AND PURIFICATION OF BIO-ACTIVE METABOLITES
Metabolites from natural sources (microbes, plants, animals) have helped to double the human life span during the 20th century, combated pain and suffering, and revolutionized the practice of medicine. Microbes have provided compounds that have cured or reduced the effect of human diseases for 70 years. Microbial products include antibiotics against bacteria and fungi, antitumor drugs, immunosuppr...
Background: Alcoholic liver disease is a spectrum of alcohol induced injury that includes fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis and alcoholic cirrhosis. Corticosteroids are used in cases of severe alcoholic hepatitis with Maddrey’s Discriminant Function score > 32. However, many of the patients who are being managed by corticosteroids are non responders and mortality increases in such patients. Li...
