Genotoxicity has fully-grown into a serious question for the cause of several cancers. In this article, we discuss the basics of genotoxicity, the chemicals which cause these genetic damages and also their mechanism of action. The discovery of new drug needs a thorough investigation for its safety and efficacy before their release into the market so, the drug development process and drug attrition...
The present study deals with the identification of the phytochemical compounds in ethanol, acetone and benzene extracts from polyherbal formulation composed of the bark of Ficus religiosa, the root of Smilax chinensis, seeds of Nigella sativa, the fruit of Emblica officinalis, Terminalia chebula and Terminalia bellerica which is used to treat psoriasis. The bioactive components of different extrac...
ASSESSMENT OF IN-VITRO ANTICANCER AND ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITIES OF CARCHORUS HIRSUTUS PHYTOMEDIATED OPTIMIZED NANOSILVER
The elected work reports for the first time successfully synthesized nanosilver from the aqueous leaf extract of the Carchorus hirsutus plant. Because the phytochemicals within the leaf extract were creditworthy for the reduction of silver ions as the active nanosilver particles, in addition to this, they act as the capping agents who had been environed at the surface of the particles. UV-Vis spec...
A COMPLETE GUIDE ON THE PHARMACOLOGIC AND PHARMACOTHERAPEUTIC ASPECTS OF CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKERS: AN EXTENSIVE REVIEW
The calcium channel blockers, a diverse group of cardiovascular drugs, exert their action by inhibiting the L-type calcium channels and cause vasodilatation in the heart and the smooth muscles. They also block the action potential at the SA and AV node, thus prolonging the duration of the action potential (Verapamil and Diltiazem). Although, the calcium channel blockers have the same anti-hyperten...
MATERNAL MORTALITY: TEN YEARS REVIEW STUDY AT GOA MEDICAL COLLEGE THE ONLY MEDICAL COLLEGE & TEACHING INSTITUTE IN THE STATE OF GOA
Objective: Maternal Mortality: Ten year review study in The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Goa Medical College. Method: A retrospective study was conducted in the Dept. of OBG GMC over a period of10 years spanning between Jan 4 to Dec 13 regarding Maternal Mortality. Results: There were total of 58 deaths out of 54604 live births during this 10 year period giving maternal mortality ratio...
Taraxacum officinale (TO) Weber commonly known as dandelion has contained triterepenes-taraxasterol and taraxerol in its roots which are nowadays being recognized as potent anticancer compounds. The main objective behind the present study was to increase the yield of taraxasterol and taraxerol through induction of hairy roots in Taraxacum officinale Weber using two strains of Agrobacterium rhizoge...
SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC AND SPECTROFLUORIMETRIC DETERMINATION OF OXCARBAZEPINE IN PURE FORM AND PHARMACEUTICAL PREPARATION
Simple and sensitive spectrophotometric Method (A) and spectrofluorimetric Method (B) were described for the analysis of oxcarbazepine. The proposed methods were based on the oxidation of the drug with cerium (IV) ion in acidic medium with subsequent measurement of either the decrease in absorbance at 321 nm or the fluorescence intensity of the produced cerous (III) ion at 363 nm emission after ex...
QSRT STUDIES OF 2-(5-ARYL-1, 3, 4-OXADIAZOL-2-YL)-N-(5-METHYLISOXAZOL-3-YL)-ACETAMIDE DERIVATIVES AS AN ANTIMICROBIAL AGENTS
Quantitative structure relationship techniques (QSRT) is among the most widely used computational technology for analog-based drug design. A molecular modeling approach using theoretical, computational analysis through chem sketch ACD lab online software was done for determination of probable antimicrobial activity. To develop a pharmacophoric model for inhibition, QSRT parameters PCP, ADME, and t...
Cancer is one of the emergings, and best-understood neoplasm’s from a genetic perspective, yet it remains the second most common cause of cancer-related death, indicating that some of its cancer cells are not removing completely by current therapies. Chitosan is a polysaccharide β-linked D-glucosamine and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine were used as conjugate to 5Fluorouracil. 5FU is one of the most com...
Spirulina platensis, planktonic blue-green algae, has been used as a source of protein (60-70%) and vitamin supplement for more than 15 years without any unknown adverse events. Traditionally, Spirulina platensis has been used as an antioxidant agent. However, no pharmacological work has been done to evaluate the anti-anxiety activity. The present study was premeditated for the evaluation of the ...
