Electrochemical behavior of rupatadine, an anti-allergic drug was studied at graphene modified glassy carbon electrode in Britton-Robinson buffer (pH 6.5) by square wave voltammetry (frequency, 50 Hz; amplitude, 0.02 V; step potential, 0.005 V) and cyclic voltammetry (scan rates, 20-100 mV/s) techniques. Cyclic voltammetry revealed the oxidation of rupatadine corresponding to N-dealkylation which ...
The usefulness of computational methods in drug design process is no longer a point of debate. The contributions from this evolving field have become apparent to both pharmaceutical scientists and academic biomedical researchers. As all the computational drug design are based on statistical and mathematical calculations there is strong evidences present for each and every step, thus research by ch...
Biofilm formation is prevailing in almost all bacteria. They are responsible to cause infections like Peritonitis, Cystic fibrosis, Endocarditis, Otitis media, UTIs. The infections caused by the biofilms forming bacteria that colonize the indwelling medical devices are a major source of patient morbidity and implant failure. The study on biofilm formation on indwelling medical devices is importa...
SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF BIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE COMPOUND E-2-((2-AMINO PYRIDINE-3-YL) METHYLENE AMINO) ETHANE THIOL AND ITS METAL COMPLEXES
A new physiologically active compound E-2-((2-amino pyridine-3-yl) methylene amino)ethane thiol derived from the condensation of Cysteamine and 2-amino Pyridine 3-Carbaldehyde was synthesized and characterized by spectral techniques like IR, UV-Vis,1H- NMR, TG-DTA, ESR, CHN analyses. The complexes were further screened for their biological activity at Nishka labs and Nickel and Cobalt complexes we...
AIDS is syndrome of a set of disease, which is caused by HIV I and II. These viruses mainly destroy the lymphocytes which play a major role in our body immune system. Till now, there is not taken exactly prevention on this virus. Although some antiviral drugs are produced which make a preventive barrier out of the lymphocytes cells of patient’s blood but there is no way to kill the virus properl...
STUDY OF THE EFFECT OF MELATONIN ON RETENTION OF CONDITIONED AVOIDANCE RESPONSE AND ON ENHANCEMENT OF SEROTONIN MEDIATED BEHAVIOURAL RESPONSES AFTER ELECTROCONVULSIVE SHOCK (ECS) ADMINISTRATION IN RATS
Objectives: To obtain the data regarding the effects of melatonin on retention of conditioned avoidance response (CAR) and on enhancement of serotonin mediated behavioural responses after electroconvulsive shock (ECS) administration in rats. Methods: Forty rats after training for conditioned avoidance response by using Cook’s pole climbing apparatus were divided in four groups with ten rats in e...
EFFECT OF GLY 16 ARG SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE POLYMORPHISM ON AGONIST BINDING TO BETA 2 ADRENERGIC RECEPTOR – A STRUCTURAL PHARMACOGENOMIC APPROACH
Asthma is obAdd Newstructive disease characterized by bronchoconstriction and inflammation for which beta 2 (β2) agonists that act through the β2 adrenoceptor are the first line agents of choice. Glycine16Arginine (Gly16Arg) is a common single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of β2 adrenoceptor whose effects on treatment response remain inconclusive. Hence the study aims to understand and determin...
Capecitabine an oral prodrug of 5- fluorouracil is widely used for the treatment of variety of solid tumors, particularly colorectal cancer. However it is not devoid of toxicities and may limit therapy. A little is known about predictors of toxicity, response and survival in patients treated with capecitabine. The pharmacogenetic testing methods can identify such variants and thus indicate those p...
ASSOCIATION OF THE APOLIPOPROTEIN B/APOLIPOPROTEIN A-1 RATIO WITH THE SEVERITY OF CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE IN PATIENTS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS
Although many studies have demonstrated the importance of the apoB/apoA-1 ratio as a risk marker of atherogenicity, less is known about apoB/apoA-1 ratio in predicting and the severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) in T2DM. Our study aimed to assess possible associations between apoB/apoA-1 ratio levels and the severity of coronary artery diseases in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM...
