SCREENING OF PHYTOCHEMICALS AND EVALUATION OF ANTI-MICROBIAL, ANTI-OXIDANT AND IN-VITRO ANTIDIABETIC ACTIVITY OF CRASSULA OVATA LEAVES
The study involved both aqueous extraction and methanolic extraction of the powered leaves, which ensure all plant components are extracted for better results. Phytochemical analysis from the extracts was performed using the standard protocols. The antimicrobial susceptibility of the extracts was tested against E-coli, Pseudomonas and Klebsilla sp using agar disc diffusion method. Antioxidant pr...
Chonemorpha fragrans (Moon) Alston is a liana belongs to family Apocynaceae. Due to its ethanobotanical importance, it is used intraditional medicinal systems as a part of various medicinal preparations. In the work presented here the plant has been explored for its antioxidant potential and DNA protection ability. The antioxidant potential of C. fragrans was determined using DPPH, FRAP, Phosphomo...
MACROSCOPICAL, MICROSCOPICAL AND PHYSICO-CHEMICAL STUDIES ON LEAVES OF DALBERGIA SISSOO LINN. (FABACEAE)
Objective: To rationalize the macroscopial, anatomical and physico-chemical studies on leaves of plant Dalbergia sissoo Linn. (Fabaceae). Methods: The crude ethanolic extract of leaves of Dalbergia sissoo Linn. (Fabaceae) was using physico-chemical parameters, fluorescence analysis, and preliminary phytochemical investigation (TLC, HPTLC, column chromatography). Results: An attempt has been made t...
ASSESSMENT OF NUTRITIONAL CONSTITUENTS AND IN VITRO ANTIOXIDANT CAPACITY OF METHANOLIC STEM EXTRACT OF CARALLUMA ATTENUATA
The main objective of the present study includes the assessment of nutritional constituents and anti-oxidant activity of methanolic stem extract of Caralluma attenuata by in-vitro methods. In the present investigation the author has identified the phytochemical constituents which have nutritional importance by specific chemical tests, thin layer chromatography, atomic absorption spectroscopy for C...
Hypothyroidism is a common disorder of endocrine system in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. The most common cause of hypothyroidism is inflammation of the thyroid gland, which damages the gland’s cells. It can affect growth, cellular processes and many other body functions. As more damage accumulates, the risk of Hypothyroidism increases. In order to make an impac...
A direct spectrophotometric method was developed by the authors for the detection and determination of satranidazole in pure form as well in pharmaceutical formulations in the form of tablets and capsules. The method was based on the formation of a reddish-purple color dye, due to the diazotization reaction between the nitro group of the drug sample, sulphanilamide and NEDA. The drug sample dissol...
Tuberculosis caused by multidrug-resistant (MDR) and extensively drug-resistant (XDR) Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) strains is a growing problem in many countries. The availability of the complete nucleotide sequences of several MTB genomes allows to use the comparative genomics as a tool to study the relationships of strains and differences in their evolutionary history including acquisition o...
Lopinavir (LPV) is potent and poorly bioavailable molecule which is frequently administered protease inhibitors in the treatment of the HIV. Solid Lipid Nanoparticles (SLNs) of LPV were prepared using High Speed Homogenization. LPV were successfully encapsulated in the mixture of Glyceryl Behenate and Glyceryl monostearate. Poloxamer 188 was used as a surfactant for the preparation of the SLNs. Fo...
ANTIMICROBIAL POTENTIAL OF CRUDE EXTRACTS AND ISOLATES OF ROOTS OF MIMOSA PUDICA LINN. COLLECTED FROM THE LOCALITY OF MOHUDA ENVIRON, GANJAM, ODISHA
A complete documentation of the ethno-biological information presently existing among the diverse communities is needed at an earliest so as to restore the traditional medicinal knowledge. Research to find out scientific evidence for claims by tribal healers on Indian herbs has been intensified as being evidenced from many cited literatures. Once these local ethno medical preparations are scien...
