SYNTHESIS AND BIOLOGICAL EVALUATION OF NOVEL QUINOLINE / CHALCONE HYBRID AS POTENTIAL ANTIBACTERIAL AGENTS
A series of new quinoline/chalcone hybrids 3a-e and 4a-e were designed and synthesized. The structures of all new target molecules 3a-e and 4a-e have been confirmed by various spectral techniques and elemental analyses. The newly synthesized compounds were screened for their antibacterial activity using agar disc diffusion method. Results showed that most of the newly synthesized compounds showed ...
The aim of the present work is the evaluation of anticancer activity of Duranta erecta L. stem extracts and also an investigation of the phytoconstituents from the different extracts of the plant. Chloroform, ethyl acetate, methanol and aqueous extracts of Duranta erecta L. stem were tested for their anticancer activity on three cancer cell lines, i.e., MCF-7 (Breast), HL-60 (Leukemia), and HT-29 ...
Cinnarizine was microencapsulated with Eudragit RS100 using an o/o and o/w emulsion solvent evaporation technique. The effects of three formulation variables including the drug: polymer ratio, emulsifier (polyvinyl alcohol) concentration and volume of external medium on the entrapment efficiency and microspheres size distribution were examined. The drug release rate from prepared microspheres and ...
NFκβ INHIBITION MECHANISM OF DEOXYELEPHANTOPIN AND ISODEOXYELE-PHANTOPIN WITH QSAR AND MOLECULAR DOCKING
Deoxyelephantopin and isodeoxyelephantopin are member of a group of compounds, sesquiterpene lactones, that include proven anticancer agents against many types of cancer cells. Many sesquiterpene lactones suppress cancers by inhibiting NFκβ. This study explores the inhibitory interaction between deoxyelephantopin and isodeoxyelephantopin on NFκB using QSAR and molecular docking. Physicochemical...

FORMULATION AND IN-VITRO CHARACTERIZATION OF 5-FLUOROURACIL AND FLAVONOID DUAL LIPID DRUG CONJUGATES LOADED SELF NANOMULSIFYING DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM FOR CANCER TARGETING
Objective: The Failure in chemotherapy is mainly because of the resistance of the chemotherapeutic drugs towards the neoplastic cells. The main reason behind this study was to develop a novel combination of 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) lipid curcumin conjugates for the treatment of cancer. Methods: In this study, the lipid group stearic acid and oleic acid was conjugated with the parent drug moiety 5-Flu...
The present study was an attempt to investigate the effect of extracts and fractions of Mukia maderaspatana on glycemia, lipid profile, lipoprotein level and antioxidant profile in STZ induced diabetic rats for 21 days. Diabetes was induced using streptozotocin (50 mg/kg i.p) and after the induction of diabetes the animals were given with MMEE (100 mg/kg, 200 mg/kg), MMCF (100 mg/kg) and MMBF (100...
To evaluate phytochemical constituents and antioxidant potential of aqueous and hydroalcoholic extracts of root of Mentha arvensis L from Kashmir region. The antioxidant activity of aqueous and hydroalcoholic extracts of Mentha arvensis L was evaluated by using 1, 1-diphenyl, 2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) scavenging, reducing power, metal chelating, hydrogen peroxide scavenging and nitrous oxide scave...
