Colour is a molecule that absorbs certain wavelengths of visible light and transmits or reflects others whereas colourant is the activity of that molecule. Natural food colour is any dye, pigment or any other substance obtained from vegetable, animal, mineral, or source capable of colouring food drug, cosmetic or any part of human body, colours come from variety of sources such as seeds, fruits, v...
The drug Parpataka is used particularly for the treatment of fevers, indigestion, biliousness, burning of the body, tired feeling, giddiness, urinary discharges, vomiting, thirst, enriches the blood and works good in leprosy. The present study is intended to authenticate and validate the species of Peristrophe paniculata (Forssk.) Brummitt, which is one of the sources of the Parpataka drug used...
Despite years of intensive research, impairment in metabolic pathways due to type 2 diabetes mellitus continues to be a daunting global challenge. It is equally challenging problem in this region as well. In recent years there is growing clinical and experimental evidence that oxidative stress plays an important role in induction and promotion of diabetes and its associated complications. Lipid pe...
Viruses are the major pathogenic agents that can cause variety of diseases in humans, animals and plants. Several deadly diseases like Hepatitis A, Hepatitis C, encephalitis, meningitis, and influenza are caused by viruses. Due to the constant and rapid emergence of viral pathogens, current recommended commercial drugs for above diseases are becoming resistant. In this view in present study forty ...
FORMULATION AND EVALUATION OF DERMA HEAL CREAM AGAINST WOUND AND BURN HEALING ACTIVITY IN STREPTOZOTOCIN-INDUCED DIABETIC WISTAR ALBINO RAT
Delayed wound healing is producing a high economic burden on the society and is generally associated with Diabetes mellitus or a related complication thus needs safe treatment like herbal formulation. Dermas heal cream (an anti-diabetic ayurvedic formulation) was evaluated for wound and burn healing potential in normal and diabetic rats.

The aim of present study was to examine the analgesic, neuropharmacological and cytotoxic effects of the methanolic extract of the barks of Dillenia indica Linn. The analgesic activity was evaluated for its central and peripheral pharmacological actions using tail-flick method and acetic acid-induced writhing test in mice respectively. The extract, at the dose of 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg body weight...
MOLECULAR DOCKING AND ADMET STUDIES OF BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS OF RHIZOPORA MUCORNATA AGAINST BACTERIAL ENZYME PROTEIN TYROSINE PHOSPHATASE
Objective: The bioactive compounds of Rhizopora mucornata were docked against the bacterial enzyme protein tyrosine phosphatase to determine the potential inhibition. In this research the molecular docking analysis of drug compounds with virulent protein was studied. Material and Methods: Protein Tyrosine phosphatase is an enzyme that is being present in staphylococcus infection that plays an impo...
In-vitro investigations toward DNA damage reported that the biological effect of genotoxic exposures could influence the life cycles of different human cells. Sister chromatid exchange (SCE) assay is broadly used, sensitive cytogenetic biomarker of exposure to genotoxic agents. Naturally available products may play a significant role against the cytogenetic damage but available research data is no...
EVALUATION OF NUTRITIONAL AND PHYSICO-CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF DIETARY FIBRE ENRICHED WITH CARROT POMACE PASTA
ABSTRACT: Fibre rich pasta were prepared by substituting refined wheat flour with carrot pomace powder (CPP) at 5%, 15%, and 25% and evaluated for its physical properties, chemical composition, textural properties and sensory characteristics. The fat content of the pasta showed no pronounced variation. The hardness of the pasta increased with increase in the level of incorporation of CPP in the fl...
EFFICACY OF SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE IN CONTROLLING BACTERIAL INFECTIONS IN FIFTH INSTAR LARVAE OF ANTHEREAE MYLITTA DRURY (DABA TV)
Bacterial diseases are highly virulent and cause significant crop loss in Anthereae mylittadrury (Daba TV).Therefore an attempt has been made to evaluate the efficient concentration of sodium hypochlorite in controlling bacterial infection through studies on mortality, Total haemocytes, Protein carbonyl content, Alanine transaminase, Aspartate transaminase in the fifth in star larvae.
