COMPARISON OF THREE TECHNIQUES FOR THE DIAGNOSIS OF MALARIA IN RESOURCE-LIMITED SETTINGS: A MINI-REVIEW
Objective of this article is to review three techniques, routinely used rapid diagnostic tests (lateral flow immune chromatography) versus nucleic acid amplification test (NAT) versus Paper-based microfluidics for DNA diagnostics of Malaria, as diagnostic tests in detecting malarial infection among febrile illnesses, suspected of malaria. The major constraint for implementing NAT as a routine scre...
Infertility is an inability to achieve pregnancy in spite of regular, unprotected coitus in one year. Infertility affects about 15% of couples, in which the malefactor contributes to 40% worldwide. There are various risk factors, causes, and treatment modalities for male infertility, of which Selective Estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) are one of the promising treatments available for treating ...

This review summarized pathophysiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and COVID 19. The spread of SARS-CoV-2 viral infections is a matter of concern because of a mutant variant of virus. The COVID-19 infection is having 14 days incubation period. ...
AN INTELLIGENT DATA ANALYTICS SYSTEM FOR THERAPEUTIC OF ANGINA PECTORIS IN CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE MANAGEMENT: A MODEL METHODOLOGY
Medical Case taking process in any field of medicine science is considered to be a significant stage for the treatment management of various diseases. Cardio Vascular diseases (CVD) are one of the life-threatening diseases across the globe, and its prognosis entirely depends on the right intuition of the clinicians; cases may account for 31% of deaths worldwide, based on a recent study. Big Data M...
The aim of this study is to evaluate metformin and insulin effects on metabolic disorders and oxydatif stress markers, in Algerian men with T2D, in order to recommend the best treatment, which can minimize diabetes complications and recommend/or not a combination between metformin and insulin. Patients and Methods: We made this study on 120 subjects men divided into four groups (30 healthy control...
CHARACTERIZATION OF BIOACTIVE METABOLITES FROM MARINE MACROALGAE COLLECTED FROM VERAVAL COAST OF GUJARAT
Seaweeds are potential sources of bioactive molecules. They are known to be rich sources of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, minerals, and other secondary metabolites. To evaluate the presence of these compounds in marine macroalgae collected from Veraval coast of Gujarat, present studies was carried out. The methanol extract of six macroalgae species (Ulva lactuca, Ulva faciata, Acantho...
Topical formulations may contribute to the reduction of oxidative stress in the skin. Banana peel is a fruit waste with antioxidant activity that is not yet included in a topical formulation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antioxidant and anti-aging activity of a cream formulation containing a lyophilized extract of banana peel. The banana peel was extracted with ethanol, and a cream fo...
A new series of Schiff's base compounds were synthesized by condensation of 1-(4-amino-4 phenyl) 3-phenyl triazene-1-ol) and substituted aldehyde and gave high yields of target compounds. Antimicrobial activity of compounds has been tested against bacterial and fungal species, namely gram-positive bacteria as S. aureus and S. pyogenes, gram-negative bacteria as E. coli and P. aeruginosa, and funga...
The antibacterial property of three Himalayan Oaks species (Quercus floribunda, Q. leucotrichophora and Q. semecarpifolia) in different solvents against eight gram-positive and gram-negative pathogenic bacteria employing disc diffusion method has been investigated. All the test microorganisms were inhibited significantly by Oaks species at 1000 μg/ml. The MIC and MBC values of each extract (where...
AMELIORATION OF 131I INDUCED SALIVARY GLAND DAMAGE BY OCIMUM SANCTUM AND AMIFOSTINE PRE SUPPLEMENTATION IN RABBITS
Oral administration of 131I to the patients of differentiated thyroid cancer is routinely used to ablate remnant thyroid tissue or metastasis. In 30% of the patients, permanent salivary gland damage due to therapeutic 131I exposure results in xerostomia, affecting their quality of life. Amifostine is the only standard FDA-approved radio protect ant available for damage control, albeit associated w...
