Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a clonal myel0 proliferative disorder due to neoplastic transformation of myeloid stem cells. The characteristic Philadelphia Chromosome translocation t(9:22) (q 34: q11) juxta poses the c-abl oncogene from chromosome 9 with break point cluster region (bcr) on chromosome 22 resulting in the generation of aberrant bcr/abl transcripts. The abnormal bcr/abl tyrosine ...
IDENTIFICATION, QUANTITATIVE DETERMINATION AND ANTIDEPRESSANT ACTIVITY OF CHLOROGENIC ACID AND GALLIC ACID FROM MORUS ALBA LEAVES
Objective: The present study is considered to estimate preliminary phytochemical components, physicochemical parameters, HPTLC chromatographic studies and antidepressant activity of chlorogenic acid & gallic acid present in extracts of Morus alba leaves. Methods: Total phenol content, total flavonoid content, total tannin content, HPTLC fingerprinting analysis for compounds like chlorogenic ac...
TOPICAL TREATMENT USING ANTIHISTAMINIC, STEROID AND A COMBINATION OF BOTH IN ALLERGIC RHINITIS-A DOUBLE-BLIND RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
This study evaluates the effectiveness of corticosteroid fluticasone propionate, antihistaminic azelastine, and a combination of both as well as to find out the prognostic significance of absolute eosinophil count (AEC) in the topical treatment of allergic rhinitis. All cases presenting with symptoms of nasal allergy were included maintaining double-blind status. A total of 225 participants of gro...
THE EFFECT OF DOXYCYCLINE HYDROCHLORIDE ON MMP-2 AND 9 IN EXPERIMENTALLY INDUCED PERIODONTITIS – AN ANIMAL STUDY
The periodontal tissues undergo constant changes of remodelling when subject to bacterial infection and the resultant host response. The balance between enzymes secreted by the host such as matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their antagonists tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) are major contributors to the progression of periodontal destruction. A sub-type of MMPs referred to gelatin...
COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF DICLOFENAC AND MELOXICAM AS TABLETS AND AS TRANSMUCOSAL MUCOADHESIVE PATCHES IN DENTAL PAIN REDUCTION
Aims and Objectives: To evaluate and compare diclofenac and meloxicam as tablets and as mucoadhesive patches in the control of odontogenic pain. Materials and Methods: 60 patients of either sex with acute dental pain were included in the study. Informed consent was obtained from each patient and they were randomly divided into 4 groups. Group A1 received meloxicam tablets, A2 meloxicam mucoadhesiv...
A PILOT STUDY TO ASSESS THE EFFICACY AND SIDE EFFECTS OF SILYMARIN ALONE AND IN COMBINATION WITH ALENDRONATE IN TREATMENT OF POSTMENOPAUSAL OSTEOPOROSIS
Background: Currently oral bisphosphonates such as alendronate are the preferred therapeutic option for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis by increasing bone mineral density and decreasing both vertebral and non-vertebral fracture risk. Silymarin is mainly used as hepato-protectant but in recent studies on ovariectomized rats, it was found that silymarin can be a promising antiosteoporot...
INVESTIGATION OF SOLVATION DYNAMICS AND HYDRATION PATTERN OF SIALIC ACID BY AB INITIO AND DFT METHOD
Sialic acid is the active site of neuraminidase virus and it proliferates the infection in the human body by cleaving it from the neuraminidase viral protein. The buried water molecule influences the binding between the ligand and the receptor. Hence, solvation dynamics and hydration pattern of sialic acid needs to be investigated to design the antiviral inhibitor. Cluster continuum solvation anal...
DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF STABILITY INDICATING RP-HPLC METHOD FOR SIMULTANEOUS ESTIMATION OF IVABRADINE AND METOPROLOL IN TABLET DOSAGE FORM
The objective of the method is to develop a rapid, simple, accurate, precise RP-HPLC method for the simultaneous estimation of Ivabradine and Metoprolol in tablet dosage form. The analytes were run through BDS C18 150 × 46 mm, 5µm column, and detected at a wavelength of 260 nm using PDA 996 (photodiode array) detector. Mobile phase containing buffer 0.01N disodium hydrogen phosphate (3.5±1 pH) ...
PRELIMINARY PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND GC-MS ANALYSIS OF METHANOLIC LEAF EXTRACT OF TEPHROSIA FALCIFORMIS RAMASWAMI FROM INDIAN THAR DESERT
Present study was conducted to identify and characterize the phytoconstituents of methanolic extract of leaves of Tephrosia falciformis (Pers.) Ramaswami of family Fabaceae. The methanolic extract of leaves was subjected to qualitative screening for primary and secondary metabolites as per standard methods; further GC-MS analysis was carried out for the identification of secondary metabolites. The...
DESIGN AND SYNTHESIS OF BIOLOGICAL ACTIVE N-(5-P-TOLYL-1,3,4-THIADIAZOL-2-YL) BENZAMIDEANDITS DERIVATIVES WITH EVALUATION OF THEIR ANTI-BACTERIAL ACTIVITY
A number of N-(5-p-tolyl-1,3,4-thiadiazole-2-yl) benzamide derivatives were synthesized from aromatic acid. The antibacterial activity of these newly synthesized N-(5-p-tolyl-1,3,4-thiadiazole-2-yl) benzamide derivatives against Gram-positive bacteria and Gram-negative bacteria was also studied using the minimum inhibition concentration method. The synthesized compounds were showed better results ...
