ANTI-CANCER AGENTS DERIVED FROM PLANT AND DIETARY SOURCES: A REVIEW

Cancer is a disease of deregulated cellular behavior. Acquisition of oncogenic attributes, loss of tumor suppressive functions, evasion of physiological tissue architecture and interactions with the cellular microenvironment enable malignant cells to escape the mechanisms of normal cellular homeostasis in an organism. Cancer cells are therefore able to sustain unlimited proliferation, to thrive un...

BIOSURFACTANT PRODUCED BY NOVEL HALO-THERMOPHILIC BACTERIAL STRAIN FROM UNCONVENTIONAL SUBSTRATES

Our ecosystem is laden with hazardous and non-hazardous wastes that pose a serious threat to bio-existence. Most pharmaceutical formulations contain chemically-synthesized surfactants. The purpose of this work is to suggest an alternative source of surfactant which would also aid in ridding our environment of harmful wastes. Bacillus licheniformis B-4 strain isolated from a hydrocarbon dump site p...

BIOLOGICAL EVALUATION OF IN VIVO DIURETIC AND ANTIUROLITHIATIC ACTIVITIES OF LEAF EXTRACTS OF MELOCHIA CORCHORIFOLIA

The present study was investigated to establish the diuretic and antiurolithiatic activities of chloroform and ethanolic leaf extract of Melochia corchorifolia. The chloroform and ethanolic leaf extract were administered to experimental rats orally at a dose of 200 mg/ kg and 400 mg/kg. Furosemide (5 mg/kg) was used as reference standard for diuretic activity. The parameters measured for diuretic ...

MORTALITY AND REPELLENT ACTIVITY OF CLERODENDRUM VISCOSUM VENT. (VERBENACEAE) AGAINST SITOPHILUS ORYZAE (COLEOPTERA: CURCULIONIDAE)

In continuation of our study we have screened out the root, leaf, and stem of C. viscosum against rice weevil, S. oryzae extracted into ethanol, ethyl acetate, and chloroform. A correlation was found between the insecticidal and repellent activity observed by residual film assay technique and repellency test. It is interesting to note that these plant extracts showed higher to less mortality activ...

AN OVERVIEW OF ANTI-CANCEROUS BEHAVIOR OF VITAMIN E

Imbalance of reactive oxygen species and their body neutralizing mechanisms defines oxidative stress. ROS play a vital role in cancer progression by taking part in DNA damage and induction of inflammatory processes. Studies reveal that natural anti-oxidant levels are reduced to a much lower extent in the serum of cancer patients in contrast to the healthy ones. Vitamin E subgroups like tocopherols...
