The present work was undertaken to justify that Vigna radiate (green moong bean) is helpful in reversing signs of memory loss in aged mice. Passive Avoidance Paradigm (PAP) and Elevated Plus Maze (EPM) were employed as exteroceptive behavioural models and ageing- induced amnesia served as interoceptive behavioural model. Moong bean sprouts (2% and 4% w/w MBS) were administered to mice along with ...
PROTECTIVE EFFECTS OF FERULIC ACID AGAINST LIVER CHOLESTASIS INDUCED BY ETHINYLESTRADIOL IN ADULT FEMALE RATS
The aim of the present article was to examine the protective effect of ferulic acid against liver cholestasis in female rats treated with ethinylestradiol (EE). The daily oral administration of the ferulic acid at a concentration of 40 mg/kg body weight for 15 days to rats treated with EE (100 µg/kg body weight for 5 days) resulted in a significant protection against EE-induced decrease in plasma...
The occurrence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is around 20-30% in the general population. NAFLD is usually asymptomatic, although a minority of patients may present with evidence of progressive liver injury with complications of cirrhosis, liver failure, and hepatocellular carcinoma. In spite of being common and potentially serious, relatively little is known about the natural histor...
SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF TRANSITION METAL COMPLEXES OF N’-[(2Z, 3E)-3-(HYDROXYIMINO) BUTAN-2-YLIDENE] BENZOHYDRAZIDE
Synthesis and characterization of Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Pd(II) complexes of ligand N'-[(2Z,3E)-3-(hydroxyimino) butan-2-ylidene] benzohydrazide are reported. The ligand is monobasic and bidentate in nature. The molar conductivities reveal that all the metal complexes are non-electrolyte. The metal complexes have been characterized on the basis of spectral and magnetic studies. Co(II) ion form...
STUDIES ON PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING – GC-MS CHARACTERIZATION, ANTIMICROBIAL AND ANTIOXIDANT ASSAY OF BLACK CUMIN SEEDS (NIGELLA SATIVA) AND SENNA ALEXANDRIA (CASSIA ANGUSTIFOLIA) SOLVENT EXTRACTS
As science encourage most of the medicinal plants as supreme source of unlimited chemical compounds which are of great interest in pharmacological preparations. The present investigation was aimed to study Nigella sativa seeds and Cassia angustifolia leaf solvent extract (petroleum ether, methanol and aqueous solutions) for phytochemical screening, GC-MS characterization, Antimicrobial and Antioxi...
Stavudine an anti-retroviral drug is used for treating HIV now-a-days. The present approach aims to formulate an orally disintegrating tablet of stavudine for better patient compliance and bypassing the hepatic metabolism. In order to have an orally disintegrating tablet of stavudine, there is a need to mask the bitter taste. For the masking of bitter taste mannitol is used as taste masking agent....
“Soda” is one of the humors in the body which should be in normal level for being healthy. If “soda” increases in the body, some undesirable symptoms appear. In order to eliminate the excess “soda”, at first it should be maturated. There are different formulations in Iranian traditional medicine references as “Monzig-e-soda” which is a way of maturation of black bile. In one of the...

Hawthorn extract, Tribulus terrestris extract and magnesium gluconate are forming well balanced nutritional supplement that could benefits people with cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. All three substances are well known in the common herbal medicine in our country and abroad. Their mechanisms’ of actions i...
TYPICAL PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES OF MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE DRIED BY SPRAY, SPIN FLASH AND BULK DRIER AND THEIR RESULTANT EFFECTS ON TABLET PROPERTIES
The solid dosage form is the easiest method of administering drugs for systemic effect. All dosages forms are made by two main components one is API and second is excipient. Excipient is present in bulk quantity and is required for binding the API. There are mainly two techniques uses for manufacturing the tablets (i) wet granulation (ii) direct compression. Wet granulation is a time consuming pro...
Aim of study: In this study, we investigate the potential effect of Nyctanthes arbortristis leaf extract in experimentally induced asthma in rats. The leaf has shown the prominent effect against the inflammation. Materials and methods: Asthma was induced experimentally in rats using Sephadex and in another model croton oil was applied on ear of rats; this model also mimics the biological event ...
