ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY AND PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING OF MARINE MACRO ALGAE AMPHIROA ANCEPS USING THREE SOLVENT EXTRACTS
The antibacterial activity and phytochemical screening of red algae Amphiroa anceps were using three different solvents like aqueous, methanol and ethyl acetate extracts. The phytochemical screening of macroalgae showed the presence of flavonoids and terpenoids in methanol and ethyl acetate extract. The aqueous extract of Amphiroa anceps observed only tannins. The eight human pathogenic bacteria l...

Nanosuspensions have the versatile potential for efficient exploitation of different drug delivery formulations and routes because of the properties provided by their small size. In the present study, curcumin extraction was carried out from Curcuma longa (crude curcuminoids) using soxhlet extraction method with ethanol as a solvent which gives a high yield. Formulations of nanosuspensions with th...

SUBSTANTIATION OF USING CHLORELLA GENUS MICROALGAE AS A RAW MATERIAL FOR PREPARATION OF CHEMOPREVENTIVE SUBSTANCES
The purpose of this study was to substantiate the use of suspension of Chlorella genus microalgae as the most valuable raw material for the preparation of carotene and chlorophyll а. The method is proposed for ultrasonication of Chlorella vulgaris microalgae suspension to increase the availability of biologically active substances and improve the microbiological performance of the prepared produc...
PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND FREE RADICAL SCAVENGING ACTIVITY OF HYDROETHANOLIC LEAF EXTRACT OF SENNA SIEBERIANA DC (CAESALPINIACEAE) AND ITS FRACTIONS
The aim of this study was to identify the phytochemical groups of hydroethanolic leaf extract of Senna sieberiana DC and its fractions and to investigate their free radical scavenging activity. S. sieberiana leaves were extracted with a hydroethanolic solvent. From the hydroethanolic extract 3 fractions were obtained after a liquid/liquid fractionation (dichloromethane, ethyl acetate, and water). ...

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 ...
