Despite significant progress made in the treatment of infectious diseases, caused by bacteria and fungi, it remains a major worldwide health problem due to rapid development of resistance against the existing antimicrobial drugs. In the present investigation, a novel series of chalcones 2a–2h were synthesized by the clasein-schmidt condensation of various aldehydes with methyl ketone in the pres...
A QSAR studies on pyrazole derivatives as specific anticancer agents was performed with 37 (32 training + 5 test) compounds. QSAR studies were performed using chemOffice 6.0 software supplied by Cambridge soft. The sketched structures were subjected to energy minimization and then used to calculate the physiochemical properties. The regression analysis was carried out using a computer program call...
ENUMERATION OF ORGANCHLORINE, ORGANOPHOSPHATE AND SYNTHETIC PYRETHROIDS IN BEANS GROWN IN FIVE DISTRICTS OF KARNATAKA
Pesticide residues in food and crops are a direct result of application of pesticides to crops growing in the field. Large quantities of pesticides are being used to control various pests, which normally infest the economically important plants. Beans- grown across the country and provides an important source of income for the small and marginal farmers. Bean growing in five districts of Karnataka...
RELATIVE EXPLORATION OF IN-VITRO ANTI- INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITIES OF DIFFERENT ARTOCARPUS SEED EXTRACTS
The study was undertaken to investigate and compare in vitro anti inflammatory activities of five varieties of hexane and methanol seed extracts each, specifically Artocarpus heterophyllus, Artocarpus integrifolia, Artocarpus hirsitus, Artocarpus inciscus and Artocarpus integer of Artocarpus species belonging to the family Moraceae by means of most prominent membrane stability assay. Results revea...
Impurities will be present in all drug substances and drug products, i.e. nothing is 100% pure if one looks in enough depth. The current regulatory guidance on impurities accepts this, and for drug products with a dose of less than 2 g/day identification of impurities is set at 0.1% levels and above (ICH Q3B (R2), 2006). For some impurities, this is a simple undertaking as generally available anal...
QUASI-EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF THE EFFECT OF PATIENT COUNSELING ON QUALITY OF LIFE AMONG TUBERCULOSIS PATIENTS
Objectives: Tuberculosis (TB) remains one of the most substantial infectious causes of death in the world. Studies focusing on the quality of life (QOL) among TB patients are limited and the effect of counselling on patients QOL has not been well-studied. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of patient counselling on QOL among patients with Tuberculosis. Methods: A quasi-experimental stu...
PREVENTION OF GASTRIC EROSION IN INDOMETHACIN ADMINISTERED RATS BY SELECTED ANTIOXIDANTS, VITAMINS AND MINERALS
This investigation was aimed to study the effect of few selected antioxidants, Vitamins and minerals for prevention of gastric erosion in indomethacin induced gastric mucosal damage in rats. Male Wistar rats, weighing between 200 -250 g were divided into 9 groups of 6 animals each (n = 6). The groups were treated respectively as follows Group I normal control and Group II disease control received ...
EFFECTIVENESS OF AMLA, JAGGERY AND PUMPKIN LEAVES EXTRACT ON THE LEVEL OF HAEMOGLOBIN, VITAMIN C AND IRON AMONG ADOLESCENT GIRLS WITH IRON DEFICIENCY ANEMIA
Background: Iron deficiency anaemia poses a burden on the limited health care delivery system. Current pharmacological anti anaemic agents cause undesirable side effect like nausea, vomiting dark stool etc. Herbal remedies offer the potential for alternative treatment strategies. This study was therefore conducted in an effort to formulate a food based extract prepared from plants products. Object...
Up till now, the most thriving and extensively used antineoplastic agent with well-established effectiveness is cisplatin. Being a non-specific drug, it reacts not only with genomic DNA but also binds and damages the plasma protein and cytoplasmic protein that confers to cisplatin resistance and severs side effects. DNA damage prompted by cisplatin leads to the activation of many signaling cascade...
Arcuate nucleus GABAergic system plays an important role in the energy balance evidenced by various studies. The present study was designed to investigate the involvement of GABA type A receptor in experimental obesity. In the present study effects of chronic administration of diazepam (0.5 and 1mg/kg/day, i.p) and bicuculline (0.6 and 1.25mg/kg/day, i.p) specific GABA type A receptor agonist and ...
