Objective: The present investigation of chemical constituents of Annona squamosa was undertaken as part of a wider study to find out the pharmacological active constituents present in this plant. So in this study, we investigate the pharmacological evaluation of previously isolated compounds (AS1-AS5) from the bark of Annona squamosa. Methods: The anthelminthic and antioxidant potential of the iso...
ROSMARINIC ACID ENHANCES CISPLATIN CYTOTOXICITY IN HEPG2 CELL LINE AND ATTENUATES ITS NEPHROTOXICITY IN MICE
The present study aimed to investigate the anticancer effect of rosmarinic acid (RA), both alone and in combination with cisplatin (cis). Also, the potential nephroprotective effects of RA against cis-induced nephrotoxicity in mice and the possible mechanisms underlying this protection were explored. Treatment of HepG2 cells with RA produced a significant decline in cellular proliferation. RA indu...
A High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) technique has been developed for the determining of foreign impurities in the parent substance of carboren. We have proposed the most sensitive, selective and also the universal HPLC method to be used, which would allow to conduct the qualitative and quantitative analysis under the same conditions so that to determine foreign impurities in the substa...
THE SYNERGESTIC EFFECTS OF EDTA / ANTIBACTERIAL COMBINATIONS IN KLEBSIELLA PNEUMONAE INDUCED PNEUMONIA RAT MODEL
The study was conducted to evaluate the synergistic effect of EDTA with antibacterial (Ceftriaxone + Sulbactum) as a combinational therapy against antioxidant enzyme activity, lipid peroxidation level, some hematological and biochemical parameters in Klebsiella pneumoniae induced nosocomial pneumonia followed by histopathology of lungs tissue in experimental exposed Sprague Dayle (S.D) rats. Total...
Enzyme engineering is a fast-growing application in the pharmaceutical market. Enzymes are key to new processes because they are environmentally friendly and reduce hazardous waste. The uses of immobilized enzyme eliminate the enzyme separation step from the main process thus simplifying and increasing the overall process yield. The use of immobilized enzyme has several advantages as compared with...
A topological index is a numeric quantity from the structural graph of a molecule. It has become a very useful tool in the prediction of pharmacological, toxicological and physico - chemical properties of a compound. In this paper, we have computed some topological indices of triangular silicate TsL (n) and triangular oxide TOL (n) networks....
FORMULATION AND EVALUATION OF TRADITIONAL MEDICINE BASED HERBAL LOZENGES, JELLIES AND DISPERSIBLE TABLETS
Traditional medicine and herbal formulations have been used by mankind for the cure and treatment of various diseases and disorders. Since time immemorable natural sources have been used as medicines by the humans. As per Indian System of medicine, Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani plants are formulated in various types of dosage forms like churna, gutika, asavas, aristasavlehas, etc. Various formulations w...
SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF HYDROCORTISONE AND KETOCONAZOLE IN PHARMACEUTICAL DOSAGE FORM BY RP-HPLC METHOD
A simple, selective, rapid, precise and economical reverse phase high performance liquid chromatographic method has been developed for the simultaneous estimation of hydrocortisone and ketoconazole from pharmaceutical formulation. The method was carried out on a C18 (25 cm × 4.6 mm i.d., 5 μ) column with a mobile phase consisting of methanol: water (adjusted to pH 3.0 using triethylamine) in the...
A STUDY OF ANTIMICROBIAL PRESCRIPTION PATTERN IN THE EAR, NOSE AND THROAT INFECTIONS AT A TERTIARY CARE TEACHING HOSPITAL, RAJKOT
Introduction: The ear, nose and throat (ENT) infections can be caused by a variety of microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses. Their treatment involves the use of appropriate antimicrobial agents and inappropriate use is closely linked to antibiotic resistance. Hence, present study was planned to evaluate the prescribing pattern of antimicrobials in the ENT outpatient department of a te...
Surgery alters the homeostatic balance and defence mechanisms in body eliciting certain responses called as stress response. In addition certain peri-operative factors may also influence the degree of stress response reflecting surgical recovery. The present study is an attempt to assess surgical stress response and to determine the influence of peri-operative factors on it. This study investigate...
