Heterocyclic schiff bases of 2-amino-4, 6-dimethyl benzothiazole with selected heterocyclic α- hydroxy aldehyde and α-hydroxy ketones and their Cu (II) metal complexes have been synthesised. The Cu (II) metal complexes of schiff bases are reported and characterised based on elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, ESR, XRD, Thermal analysis, magnetic moment, and molar conductance. The molar conductance d...
Cognitive impairment in elderly is a growing public health concern, and is mainly caused by dementia of various etiologies. Hence, it is important to explore possible measures to mitigate the risk of dementia. Curcumin, active ingredient of turmeric (Curcuma longa) is used in curry and has shown protective effect on cognition. This study aims to explore the association between curcumin consumption...
Cancer is uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. The cells causing cancer are called malignant cells. There are so many means by which one can treat the cancer such as chemotherapy, radiation treatment, surgery, etc. With all these treatments there are some side effects as loss of hairs, living cells may get killed, for surgery skilled persons are required and chances of reoccurrences ...
Aim of the study: This study evaluates the analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic activities of the aqueous, methanol and n-hexane extracts of Trichosanthes dioica Roxb. to provide experimental evidence for its traditional use such as fever, pain and inflammation. Materials and methods: Investigations on the analgesic effects of Trichosanthes dioica Roxb. was carried out by acetic acid-induc...
T-CELL ACTIVATION CONTROLLING EFFECTS OF ETHYL ACETATE FRACTION OF KALANCHOE PINNATA (LMK) PERS ON TMPD-TREATED LUPUS MICE
T-cell activation, with the low expression of CD62L (L-selectin) marker in the spleen, will increase B cell activity to produce lupus antibodies. Therefore, lupus patients need drugs which could increase the L- selectin expression in the spleen to reduce the auto-reactive T cell. The tested drug to increase the L-selectin in this research was the ethyl acetate fraction of Kalanchoe pinnata (Lmk) P...
EVALUATION OF PREVALENCE, KAP AND PRESCRIBING PATTERN OF DRUGS TO TYPE 2 DIABETIC PATIENTS AND ASSESSMENT OF RISK FACTORS AMONG THE NON-DIABETIC PATIENTS IN A TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL IN SOUTHERN KERALA
A prospective, observational study was conducted among the 100 diabetic and 100 non-diabetic patients for a period of six months for the evaluation of prevalence, KAP (Knowledge, Attitude and Practice) and prescribing pattern of drugs to type 2 diabetic patients and to assess the risk factors of prevalence of diabetes among the non-diabetic patients. All information relevant to the study was colle...
PATHOPHYSIOLOGICAL STATUS OF SERUM ANTIOXIDANT, MACRO-MINERALS AND TRACE ELEMENTS IN PATIENTS WITH METABOLIC SYNDROME IN BANGLADESH
This study was undertaken to elucidate the serum antioxidant (Vitamin C), macro - minerals (Ca, Na, and K) and trace elements (Zn, Fe) concentration of in patients with metabolic syndromes. Metabolic syndrome was examined by following the definition developed by the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP ATPIII). Serum Vitamin C was estimated by phenyl-hydrazine spe...
ANTIHYPERTENSIVE EFFICACY OF ROUWOLFIA TETRAPHYLLA – ROOT OF THE PLANT ON UNINEPHRECTOMIZED DOCA – SALT HYPERTENSIVE RATS
The plant Rouwolfia tetraphylla has been used traditionally as antihypertensive and has been proven scientifically to possess high antioxidant and hepato-protective activity. This study was designed to check the potential of medicinal plants in treatment of hypertension which will be helpful to reduce the side and adverse effect of allopathic antihypertensive drugs. During the experimental period,...
Objective: To determine the immunomodulatory activity of leaves of Rumex vesicarius Linn. and Symplocos racemosa Roxb. Methods: The ethyl acetate and ethanolic extract of Rumex Vesicarius Linn. and ethanolic and N-hexane extract of Symplocos racemosa Roxb. were administered orally at the dosage level of 200 mg/kg/day and 400 mg/kg/day each according to the body weight of Rat. The assessments of im...
SYNERGISTIC OLIGODYNAMIC EFFECT OF MYCOGENIC BIMETALLIC NANOPARTICLES WITH DAPTOMYCIN FOR CONTROLLING PATHOGENS
Bimetallic nanoparticles have several useful opto-electronic and catalytic properties that are different from those of monometallic nanoparticles. The development of non-toxic and eco-friendly protocols for the synthesis of bimetallic nanoparticles is a still less explored area. In the present study, bimetallic silver-gold nanoparticles were synthesized using Trichoderma reesei (NCIM 992). An effe...
