Dietary nitrate has been demonstrated to have a range of beneficial vascular effects, including reducing blood pressure, reduction in pulse wave velocity, regulation of cerebral blood flow, enhancing exercise performance in healthy individuals, stimulating angiogenesis and vasculogenesis etc. Earlier studies with nitrate or nitrite also demonstrate the synergistic effects against ischaemia-reperfu...
Oxidative stress is one of the factor that initiating development of cataract and describes the events leading to lens opacification, generally cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye that will affect the vision either partially or completely. Proteins that are present in the lens begin to break down and the lens becomes cloudy. This will be avoided by taking external food supplements that a...
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...
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...
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...
EVENTUAL IMMUNOLOGIAL BENEFIT OF PHOSPHODIESTERASE IV INHIBITOR (ROLIPRAM) ON THE LUNG AND LENS AFFECTION INDUCED BY SELENIUM IN RATS: A PHARMACOLOGICAL, LIGHT AND SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPE STUDY
The association between chronic bronchitis and cataract is debating. While some referred it to the corticosteroid therapy commonly prescribed to bronchitis, other named different immunological pathways that may be involved in this relationship. We tried to find out the possible immunological benefit of phosphodiesterase IV inhibition in these two common associated conditions. The rats were divided...
Introduction: Antibiotics suppress the growth of or kill another microorganism at very low concentrations. Therefore this is the one of the supreme invention need of this era. Most bacteria are becoming resistant to various antibiotics, make a limitation for treating minor and major infectious. Hence, determining the resistance patterns in the geographical area will help in choosing and use of the...
