STUDY OF ANTIDIABETIC EFFECT OF LEMONGRASS (CYMBOPOGON CITRATUS) AQUEOUS ROOTS AND FLOWER EXTRACTS ON ALBINO MICE
Dexamethasone drug induced the hyperglycemia in the Albino mice when intra-peritoneally administered at the dose of 10 mg/kg. Administration of dexamethasone raised the level of blood sugar in the mice. Administration of aqueous extract of C. citratus root and flower extract reduced the fasting and postprandial blood sugar levels, bringing them towards normal. We were observed anti-diabetic effect...
The purpose of present study was to formulate the gastro-retentive floating microspheres of atazanavir sulfate to be retentive in the stomach for prolonged period of time. The gastro-retentive floating microspheres were prepared by double emulsion w1/o/w2 solvent evaporation technique and characterization for particle size, SEM, floating time, FTIR, DSC, and entrapment efficiency. The in-vitro dru...
Biopolymers are gaining more importance in our day-to-day life, due to the hazardous effect of synthetic plastics in our environment. Curdlan is one of the biopolymers, which has a broad field of applications in the food, pharmaceutical and medical industries. It is a polymer of glucose, produced by the family members of Rhizobiaceae. Curdlan [(1→3)-β-D-glucan] production takes place under the ...
A REVIEW OF CLASSICAL, PROPRIETARY AND PATENTED AYURVED PRODUCTS AND THEIR INGREDIENTS IN LIVER / SPLEEN DISEASES
Liver disease is the tenth most common cause of death in India as per the World Health Organization and may affect every one in Five Indians. In spite of consistent human effort and drug discovery, modern drug has very little to offer. Nonetheless, Ayurved classical proprietary and patented formulations have shown promising results. The present study provides a general review of the Ayurved produc...

Macroscopy, organoleptic characters, microscopic features, physiochemical standardization parameters such as total ash, acid insoluble ash, water soluble ash, alcohol, water and other organic solvent extractives, preliminary phytochemical assay, fluorescence analysis and microb...
IMPAIRMENT OF OVARIAN BIOCHEMICAL CONTENTS AND ENZYMES ACTIVITIES DURING POTASSIUM BROMATE (KBRO3-) INTOXICATION IN ALBINO MICE MUS MUSCULUS
Potassium bromate (KBrO3-) is a chemical compound commonly used as a oxidizing agent that has been used as a food additive for baking of white bread, bun, pav and pizza bread. Potassium bromate (KBrO3-) is mainly known to generate free radicals, which cause oxidative damage to essential cellular macro molecules, leading to cause nephrotoxicity in experimental animals. In this part of experiment bi...
Prostaglandin endoperoxide synthases, usually known as cyclooxygenases (cyclooxygenase-1 and cyclooxygenase-2), catalyze a key step in the formation of biologically effective prostaglandins. In recent times, a cyclooxygenase-1 variant protein, called cyclooxygenase-3 used to be found and characterized. COX-3 is studied recent along with significant margin for the formation of anti-inflammatory, an...
MICROWAVE ASSISTED SYNTHESIS, CHARACTERIZATION AND BIOLOGICAL EVALUATION OF NEWLY SYNTHESIZED 1, 3, 4-THIADIAZOLE DERIVATIVE OF GUAR GUM
A new derivative of Guar gum, incorporated with 1, 3, 4-thiadiazole nucleus was synthesized by using a new green and efficient synthetic approach. Guar gum is a biodegradable polymer having numerous applications in various industries. Thiadiazole compounds are well known in the therapeutic world due to their pharmacological importance. The newly synthesized derivative was characterized by IR, H1 N...
THE EFFECT OF INTAKE DUCK EGG YOLK ON BODY WEIGHT, LIPIDS PROFILE AND ATHEROSCLEROSIS DISEASES IN MALE WISTAR RATS
Duck egg yolks contained fat and higher cholesterol than chicken eggs. A high-fat diet has caused obesity to impact for the development of diseases such as type II diabetes, stroke, atherosclerosis, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and certain forms of cancer. The purpose of using laboratory animals determined the effects of duck egg yolk to body weight, lipids profile, and atherosclerosis dis...
A NOVEL RP-HPLC METHOD FOR SIMULTANEOUS DETERMINATION OF DICYCLOMINE AND ETHYL MORPHINE IN BULK AND PHARMACEUTICAL FORMULATION
The present study was designed to develop and validate a simple, sensitive, precise and accurate RP-HPLC method for simultaneous estimation of dicyclomine and ethylmorphine in bulk and tablet dosage form. The chromatographic separation was achieved on Discovery C18 column (250 × 4.6 mm, 5 µm) as stationary phase with a mobile phase of water (pH 5.4 adjusted with orthophosphoric acid): acetonitri...
