There is a lot of thrust on utilization of bioactive chemicals from plant systems and their significant effect on microorganisms. Ten species of plants of the family Euphorbiaceae have been used for our study they are, Croton bonpandianum, Euphorbia tirucalli, E. hirta, E. heterophylla, Jatropha curcas, J. glandulifera, J. multifida, Phyllanthus amarus, Ricinus cummunis, Pedilanthus tithymal...
ANTIDIABETIC AND HYPOLIPIDEMIC EFFECTS OF METHANOLIC EXTRACT OF FILICIUM DECIPIENS IN STREPTOZOTOCIN INDUCED DIABETIC RATS
This study evaluated methanolic extract of Filicium decipiens (MFD) on reducing hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. MFD was orally administered once a day after 3 days of streptozotocin -induction at 100,200 and 400 mg/kg for 45 day and the results showed that serum fasting blood glucose, Glucose – 6 – phosphotase , Fructose 1, 6 –phosphotase in hepatic ...
In recent times, the use of natural antioxidants as ameliorative agents has become the focus of basic research. Allium sativum (garlic) is one such agent which has been proven to have antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal, antiparasitic, anticoagulant and antitumor properties. The present investigation deals with the ameliorative effects of Allium sativum on the induced renal toxicity of the antim...
A REVIEW ON THE SYNTHESIS AND BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES OF PIPERIDIN-4-ONES K. P. Greeshma * and S. Muthulingam
Piperidine is a key structural motif in various alkaloids and a variety of compounds studied in medicinal chemistry. Though many methods have been developed for their construction, there is still need for noval approaches. Among the wide variety of heterocyclic compounds; piperidin-4-ones exhibit various biological activities. Synthesis and biological applications of piperidin-4-ones derivatives a...
PYRAZOLIDINE-3, 5-DIONE AND 2-METHYL-4-OXO-4H-THIOCHROMENE-8-CARBONYL CONJUGATES: SYNTHESIS, CHARACTERIZATION AND ANTIMICROBIAL SCREENING
In this study, a novel series of heterocyclic compounds containing pyrazolidine-3, 5-dione nucleus has been synthesized. The compounds were synthesized in four steps; esterification of 2-mercaptobenzoic acid in an acidic medium to yield 2-mercapto-benzoic acid ethyl ester which was cyclized using ethyl acetoacetate to form 2-methyl-4-oxo-4H-thiochromene-8-carboxylic acid ethyl ester. These were re...
The main objective of the present study was to conduct an in depth study of the advances made in the therapy with music and the developments made in its applications in the health care, using primarily resources of published material in the internet. The current study was mainly aimed at understanding music therapy from the perspective of its applications in the field of medicine as a novel altern...
BIO-ANALYTICAL METHOD DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF ETHINYL ESTRADIOL WITH ETHINYL ESTRADIOL-D4 AS INTERNAL STANDARD IN HUMAN K2-EDTA PLASMA BY LC-MS/MS
A sensitive method was developed to determine Ethinyl Estradiol in human plasma by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometric (LC–MS/MS). Separation of analyte and the Internal Standard (IS) Ethinyl Estradiol-d4 using SPE followed by LLE in plasma with TBME, was performed on a LC/MS/MS-API-5500 instrument with SB C18 HT (50mm×3.0mm) 1.8 µm columns at a flow rate of 0.300 ml/min with mobil...
