SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC DETERMINATION OF CARISOPRODOL IN PURE AND PHARMACEUTICAL FORMS USING TRIPHENYL METHANE DYES
New simple and sensitive extractive spectrophotometric methods have been developed and described for the determination of carisoprodol in pure form and in pharmaceutical formulations. The developed methods involve formation of coloured chloroform extractable ion-pair complexes of carisoprodol with triphenyl methane dyes viz., bromocresol green (BCG), bromothymol blue (BTB) and bromophenol blue (BP...
Dental caries is an infective serious transmittable bacterial disease characterized by a multi-factorial pathology. Main players in the etiology of this disease are cariogenic bacteria, fermentable carbohydrates, a susceptible tooth, the host, and the time. It is still one of the most common disease worldwide. Biological factor such as cariogenic bacteria plays an important role in dental caries i...
INHIBITORY EFFECT OF ETHANOL EXTRACT OF MELASTOMA MALABATHRICUM LEAVES ON INFLAMMATORY SPLA2 ENZYME AND ITS ABILITY TO REDUCE THE CELL VIABILITY OF PC3 CELL LINE
Melastoma malabathricum is a medicinal plant found throughout Southeast Asian countries. Traditionally M. malabathricum was used for treating diseases such as hemorrhoids, cuts and wounds, toothache, and stomachache. Scientific findings also revealed the wide pharmacological actions of various parts of M. malabathricum such as anti-nociceptive, anti-inflammatory, wound healing, anti-diarrheal...
In cancers, many signals were involved in self-renewal, differentiation and proliferation. Especially, Wnt signaling pathway plays crucial impact in stem cells and cancer development. Wnt genes were involved in the stimulation of Wt signaling pathway in stem cells development. Despite, mutation and overexpression of Wnt genes induced regulation of carcinogenesis. Out of 19 Wnt genes, each Wnt gene...
Delonix elata (D. elata) whole plant was chosen to evaluate in-vitro anti-oxidant activities. The total polyphenols and flavonoids were determined after the extraction. DPPH (2, 2'-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazy), H2O2 (Hydrogen peroxide), NO (Nitric oxide) and TBARS (Thiobarbituric acid) methods were used to evaluate antioxidant activities of D. elata whole plant. The results showed that the highest le...
MEMBRANE SENSORS FOR THE SELECTIVE DETERMINATION OF TOLTERODINE TARTRATE IN PRESENCE OF ITS DEGRADATION PRODUCT
The construction and electrochemical response characteristics of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) membrane sensors for determination of Tolterodine tartrate (TT) in presence of its oxidative degradation product are described. The sensors are based on the ion association complexes of TT cation with sodium tetraphenyl borate (TT-TPB) [sensor 1] or phosphomolybidic acid (TT-PMA) [sensor 2] counter anions as ...
ISOLATION, IDENTIFICATION AND QUANTIFICATION OF BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS FROM AMARANTHUS HYPOCHONDRIACUS LEAF EXTRACT: A VITAL SOURCE OF POTENT NATURAL ANTIOXIDANTS
In this study we aimed at isolation, identification, and quantification of two phenolic compounds reported for the first time in leaves of Amaranthus hypochondriacus. A non targeted GC-MS metabolite profiling of hexane extracts of amaranth leaves was done which indicated the presence of major phenolic compounds. Two alkylated phenols namely 2,4-di-tert-butyl phenol (A) and 3-(3,5-di-tert-butyl-4-h...
Gmelina arborea Roxb. belongs to the Verbenaceae family, commonly known as Gambhar. It is distributed throughout India, Ceylon, Malayan and Philippine Islands. Its roots have anthelmintic properties. Its flowers are useful in the treatment of leprosy and blood diseases. Its fruit has diuretic properties and aphrodisiac. It is also used in anemia leprosy and vaginal discharges. Leaves have shown an...
Plants have served as a source of new pharmaceutical products and inexpensive starting materials for the synthesis of some known drugs. Components with medicinal properties from plants play an important role in conventional Western medicine. In the ethnopharmacological approach, local knowledge about the potential uses of the plants is very useful as compared to the random approach where indigenou...
In Ayurveda, there are less toxic herbal drugs known as upavisha. Upavisha are mostly use in various diseases with many therapeutically preparations. As per Ayurveda, Upavisha is group of less toxic drug. These drugs are either not having all ten gunas or they have less potent gunas. The properties of these drugs are to cure acute and chronic disease. These groups also have antimicrobial/ anti- in...
