This study is mainly aimed to different media such as Yeast Malt Agar Medium (YMA), Saboraud’s Dextrose Agar Medium (SDA), Glucose Peptone Agar Medium (GPA), Malt Extract Agar Medium (MEA) and Potato Dextrose Agar Medium (PDA) on the growth of mycelium of ...
The aim of present study was to examine the analgesic, neuropharmacological and cytotoxic effects of the methanolic extract of the barks of Dillenia indica Linn. The analgesic activity was evaluated for its central and peripheral pharmacological actions using tail-flick method and acetic acid-induced writhing test in mice respectively. The extract, at the dose of 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg body weight...
EFFICACY OF SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE IN CONTROLLING BACTERIAL INFECTIONS IN FIFTH INSTAR LARVAE OF ANTHEREAE MYLITTA DRURY (DABA TV)
Bacterial diseases are highly virulent and cause significant crop loss in Anthereae mylittadrury (Daba TV).Therefore an attempt has been made to evaluate the efficient concentration of sodium hypochlorite in controlling bacterial infection through studies on mortality, Total haemocytes, Protein carbonyl content, Alanine transaminase, Aspartate transaminase in the fifth in star larvae. Results reve...
SATURATION SOLUBILITY OF SCOPOLAMINE IN THIN FILMS OF POLYACRYLATE PRESSURE SENSITIVE ADHESIVES IS TEMPERATURE DEPENDENT
The method of drug uptake from solid solution has been used to measure the saturation solubility of scopolamine base in various pressure sensitive adhesive DURO-TAKs at elevated temperature. The saturation solubility was strongly temperature dependent, being 50 – 100 % larger at 45°C than at 25°C. The higher temperature also caused much more rapid approach to equilibrium distribution of the dr...
The study was undertaken to find out the pharmacokinetic drug interaction of verapamil on pioglitazone in normal and alloxan induced diabetic rats following single and multiple dose treatment. Human oral therapeutic doses of pioglitazone and verapamil were extrapolated to rats based on their body surface area. The serum pioglitazone concentrations were estimated by a sensitive reverse phase – hi...
