Eugenia jambolana Lam., commonly known as black plum or “jamun” is an important medicinal plant in various traditional systems of medicine. It is effective in the treatment of diabetes mellitus, inflammation, ulcers and diarrhea, and preclinical studies have also shown it to possess chemopreventive, radioprotective and antineoplastic properties. The plant is rich in compounds containing anthoc...
BIOSYNTHESIS AND STRUCTURAL CHARACTERIZATION OF SILVER AND GOLD NANOPARTICLES USING AQUEOUS STEM EXTRACT OF ALHAGI MAURORUM
Green synthesis is a cheaper, clean, nontoxic route for the synthesis of large scale nanoparticles without the use of high energy, pressure, temperature, and toxic chemicals. With the help of microbial enzyme and plant extract nanoparticles are easily synthesized by utilizing their antioxidant and reducing properties. In the present study, biosynthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles by utilizing...
PROTECTIVE PROFILE OF CITRULLUS COLOCYNTHIS ROOT EXTRACTS ON LIPID PROFILE STATUS IN STZ CHALLENGED RATS
Diabetes mellitus is one of the widespread and severe metabolic disorders in humans all over the world. It is initially characterized by a loss of glucose homeostasis resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action or both resulting in impaired glucose metabolism and other energy-yielding fuels such as lipids and proteins. The association of hyperglycemia with altered lipid parameters ...
PRILIMINARY PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND IN-VITRO ANTICONVULSANT ACTIVITY OF METHANOLIC EXTRACT OF LEAVES OF CINNAMOMUM TAMALA (BUCH.-HAM) T. NEES & EBERM (FAMILY- LAURACEAE)
Objective: To perform the phytochemical screening and anticonvulsant activity of methanolic extract of leaves of Cinnamomum tamala (Buch.-Ham) T. Nees & Eberm. Method: The physicochemical parameter and in-vitro anticonvulsant study were done. The anticonvulsant activity of methanolic extract of leaves of Cinnamomum tamala (100 and 400 mg/kg, p.o) in Wistar rats was assessed by using the Maxima...
