FORMULATION, DEVELOPMENT AND STANDARDIZATION OF AN AYURVEDIC MUCO-ADHESIVE EXTENDED RELEASE VAGINAL TABLET
The study aims to standardize a vaginal herbal formulation consisting of stem barks of Ficus glomerata Roxb. and Symplocos racemosa Roxb. Since they are used as Ayurvedic medicine and described in ancient text Charak Samhita as astringent, anti-inflammatory and treatment of vaginitis/leucorrhoea. This new herbal formulation is likely to exhibit significant antimicrobial action due to the presence ...
The liver is an amazingly complex organ which virtually affects every physiological process of the body. The liver is the largest glandular organ in the body and has more function than any other organs. Hepatic disorders which stem from a stressful lifestyle, inappropriate eating habits, and lack of exercise have become one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in human being. The acute h...
PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS, ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY AND GROWTH INHIBITORY EFFECTS OF EXTRACTS FROM ANNONA SENEGALENSIS, WALTHLERIA INDICA AND ANTHOCLEISTA VOGELII
Antioxidant potential, phytochemical and growth inhibitory characteristics of Anthocleista vogelii stem bark (AVSB) and root (AVRT), Annona senegalensis stem bark (ANSB) and Waltheria indica leaf (WILV) aqueous extracts were evaluated. Phytochemical analysis showed the presence of flavonoids, tannins, saponins, sterols, alkaloids, and terpenes. Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FT-IR) analyses indicate...
The present investigation was directed to assess the counter lithiasis action of ethanolic concentrates of entire plant of Bryophyllum pinnatum. Urolithiasis is an infection brought about by the nearness and impacts of uroliths (stones) or calculi or exorbitant measures of precious stones in the urinary tract. The illness is alluded to by numerous names, including cystitis, urethritis, urinary cal...
MORPHO-ANATOMICAL AND PHYTOCHEMICAL CHARACTERISATION OF TRADITIONALLY USED PLANT RUELLIA TUBEROSA L. LEAVES AND ROOTS
The objective of the present study is to develop the pharmacognostic and phytochemical profiles of Ruellia tuberosa L. leaf and root. The present study considers the detail investigation of macroscopy, microscopy, preliminary qualitative phytochemical analysis, physicochemical evaluations, and chromatography profiling. The microscopical investigation was adopted to identify the cellular powder cha...
Studies on anticancer and protein inhibition process play a vital role in regulating the cellular process of life and diseases. The present studies have been conducted on ethanolic tuber extract from Globba bulbifera for protease inhibition and breast cancer inhibition. The extract has shown good inhibition for Trypsin, Chymotrypsin and protease K. The extract has also shown MCF-7 (Breast Cancer) ...
Butea monosperma (Family: Fabaceae). This is a moderate sized deciduous tree which is widely distributed throughout India, Burma and Ceylon, popularly known as 'dhak' or 'palas,' commonly known as ‘Flame of the forest’. The family Fabaceae compromises of 630 genera and 18,000 species. It finds use both medicinally and commercially with each part of the plant having utility. This plant species ...
In the present study, the photochemistry of fluoroquinolone antibiotic drug-besifloxacin (1) was investigated under mild conditions similar to those encountered in biological systems namely aerobic as well as an anaerobic condition with UV-A light. When besifloxacin (1) was irradiated with a high-pressure mercury lamp under aerobic conditions it afforded 7-(2-Amino-5-oxo-pentylamino)-8-chloro-1-cy...
Since, the middle ages, essential oils have been widely used for bactericidal, fungicidal, insecticidal, virucidal, cosmetic and medicinal applications, especially nowadays in agriculture, food, sanitary and pharmaceutical industries. Distillation is the common mode of extraction used for aromatic plants, which results in a variety of volatile molecules such as terpenes, terpenoids, aliphatic comp...
The present study was conducted to investigate the color strength (K/S), colorfastness, antibacterial and antioxidant properties of silk using fabric Cichorium intybus root extract as a natural dye. Comparative results of color fastness (fastness to wash, rub, light and perspiration) and colorimetric properties (CIELab and K/S values) of dyed silk samples were studied to quantify the effect of mor...
