EVALUATION OF CARDIOPROTECTIVE EFFECTS OF CAMELLIA SINENSIS ON ISOPROTERENOL INDUCED MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION
Background: Black tea is rich in polyphenols which are antioxidants. The most abundant polyphenolic compounds are flavonols and catechins. Black tea antioxidants showed protective actions against chronic diseases like cardiovascular diseases due to their antioxidant action. Objective: The present study was conducted to evaluate the cardioprotective effects of Camellia sinensis on isoproterenol ...
The aerial parts essential oils of Ocimum basilicum (Lamiaceae) from Togo were steam-distilled and investigated for their percentage composition (GC and GC/MS) and in vitro antimicrobial activities. Five oil chemotypes were identified and classified as follows in line with their principal components: estragole type; linalool/estragole type; methyleugenol type; methyleugenol/t-anethole type; taneth...
There are various drugs used in daily life. Some of them show hazardous effect on various organs and some of them shows even lethal effect. Such drugs are required to banned. One of them is Etizolam (marketed under the brand name Sedekopan, Pasaden or Depas) is a drug which is a thiebenzothiodiazepines analog. The aim of this work is done to compare the effect of administrati...
TEMPLATE SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF LANTHANIDE(III) COMPLEXES OF 21-MEMBERED UNSYMMETRICAL PENTAAZA MACROCYCLIC SCHIFF BASES BEARING PENDANT ARM. IDENTICAL FRAME WORK: PART II
A series of discrete mononuclear lanthanide(III) complexes of H2L1 [Ln(H2L1)(NO3)2]NO3.nH2O (Ln = La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Y; n = 1 for Ce; n = 2 for La, Sm, Gd and Y; n = 3 for Pr, Nd, Eu, and Tb) have been prepared by the condensation of Schiff-bases with the precursor compounds namely, 2,6-diformyl-4-methylphenol, 1,5-diamino-3-azamethypentane and 4,5-dimethyl-1,2-phenylenediamin...
AN IN VITRO INVESTIGATION OF SUITABILITY OF PRESS-COATED TABLETS WITH HYDROXYPROPYLMETHYLCELLULOSE ACETATE SUCCINATE (HPMCAS) AND SODIUM ALGINATE IN OUTER SHELL FOR COLON TARGETING
The aim of present study was to develop a new colon targeting formulation, which can minimize the escape of Mesalazine completely in upper gastro-intestinal tract and ensure availability of maximum amount of drug to achieve the desired site i.e. distal colon. The use of press coated tablets with Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose acetate succinate (HPMCAS) and sodium alginate in outer shell was investig...
Objective: Conventionally, sustained release pellets have been prepared in the form of reservoir systems by coating non-pareil pellets which is an expensive and tedious process. The aim of present study was to develop sustained release matrix (SRM) pellets of Nateglinide (NT), an oral antidiabetic agent, commonly used in the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes mellitus. Methods: The SRM pellet formulatio...

The fundamental motivation behind creating elective medication conveyance advances is to build proficiency of medication conveyance. Pterospermum acerifolium is normal plant in India is viewed as carminative, stimulant and emmenagogue. The poin...
IDENTIFICATION OF POTENT VIRTUAL LEADS AS TOPOISOMERASE-II INHIBITORS USING PHARMACOPHORE MODELLING, MOLECULAR DOCKING AND ADME STUDIES
Topoisomerase enzymes are highly expressed in cells which undergo rapid multiplication. Inhibition of this enzyme represents a potential therapeutic approach for diseases such as cancer. In order to understand the structure activity correlation of 2, 4, 6 pyridine based topoisomerase inhibitor, we have carried out a combined pharmacophore modelling, 3D-QSAR studies, molecular docking and virtual s...
EVALUATION OF LEVOFLOXACIN VS. NORFLOXACIN; EFFECT ON BLOOD GLUCOSE PROFILE IN ALLOXAN INDUCED DIABETIC ALBINO RATS- A COMPARATIVE STUDY
Flouroquinolones (FQ) used commonly for treatment of community and hospital-acquired infections, has been prefixed with multiple adverse effects. Amongst them the glycemic variability has been attention seeking. Drug induced dysglycemia can be acute or persistent and severe too. The present study is designed to evaluate and compare the actions of Levofloxacin vs. Norfloxacin in altering blood gluc...
Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is the major cause of morbid-mortality in most countries. The involvement of oxidative stress (OS) in the development of atherosclerosis, ischemic cardiopathy triggering phenomen, has been investigated. Serum total homocysteine (Hcy) concentration was measured by fluorescence polarization immunoessay. Plasma levels of substances reacting with thiobarbituric acid (TBARS...
